Radio Northsea International (RNI) was a pirate radio station that operated from 1970 to 1974. It was based on a ship named Mebo II, which was anchored in international waters off the coast of the Netherlands. RNI broadcasted a mix of popular music, news, and other entertainment programs in English, targeting a primarily British audience.

RNI became popular in the UK as it provided an alternative to the BBC's radio monopoly at the time. The station played a wide range of music genres, including pop, rock, and soul, appealing to a diverse audience. It featured famous DJs like Tony Allan, Emperor Rosko, and Robbie Dale, who gained a significant following.

However, RNI faced challenges from governmental authorities and other competing pirate radio stations. The Dutch government implemented laws to try and shut down the station, and eventually, RNI ceased broadcasting in August 1974. Despite its relatively short lifespan, RNI left a lasting impact on the history of radio broadcasting in Europe, paving the way for future commercial radio stations. [*]
