In 1984 the Observer newspaper used the term as a metonym for the prototype group interested in detailed trivia, the trainspotters,[1][2] as members of this group often wore unfashionable but warm Parka called Anorak when standing for hours on station platforms or along railway tracks, noting down details of passing trains.

The first use of the phrase to describe an obsessive fan has also been credited to the radio presenter Andy Archer, who used the term in the early 1970s for fans of offshore radio, who would charter boats to come out to sea to visit the radio ships.[3]

In 1983, the first edition of the Anoraks UK Weekly Report was published, featuring news of pirate radio broadcasts.[4]
