Pirate stations have been known for actually making the radio industry what it is today. It would be a shame to see them all disappear. To be honest, most of well-known presenters either started out in pirate/ local radio station. It was a chance for them to be heard by the many locals who loved music with the odd banter here and there in between. All the mainstream radio stations such as: Kiss, Capital, Heart etc are great to listen to at times but for me pirate stations have more personally and freedom to express themselves.
