While we are still undertaking a lot of basic research, we have now reached the point where a lot of the mysteries have now been resolved, although they have not necessarily been revealed here on this Blog so far. One of the biggest problems that we have faced, has been in knowing that the story as told by Skues, Clark, Rusling and others is bogus, but in not having some key connecting dots that join together a large volume of newly researched and genuine material that we now have which explains the actual story which the bogus story has been concealing.
For some time we have been able to demolish the false stories that have been spread by Skues, Clark, Rusling and the rest, but until now, we have not been able to explain what really happened. Now we can.
We have finally made a breakthrough and found some of the missing pieces that create an entirely different narrative and which explain why that bogus story was created and maintained. While we certainly do not have all of the missing pieces, we now have enough material to reveal both what really did happen back at the dawn of the Nineteen Sixties, and we will be presenting a new account of those events.
If we were to continue to reveal aspects of our discoveries we would be taking away from the totally new picture that we will be revealing. Since August 14 seems to be an interesting date, that is that date this year when we will begin to pull back the curtain and reveal what we have discovered. It is not a variation on the old and bogus mythology, it is an entirely new and different explanation of events that led up to the creation in 1964 of the offshore station called 'Radio Caroline', and why the original intellectual property that Rusling stole from us and tried to incorporate into his bogus 'bible', was merely an attempt by him to bash square pegs into round holes. Our research documentation does not fit into his fake narrative.
To coin a phrase, stay tuned, because the countdown has begun:
The life stories of Ian Cowper Ross; Christopher Moore and Ronan O'Rahilly have one thing in common: Jocelyn Stevens!
These four, under the management of Jocelyn Stevens, were the primary actors in a play of misinformation by distraction and redirection.
While it appeared that the story of 'Radio Caroline' was to be found at Fetter Lane and then at 6 Chesterfield Gardens, the real story was not taking place at those locations at all! It was being acted out many miles north of London, and as this Blog and its companion site continue with publication, they will gradually reveal how, why and where this was achieved.
It was a program about one moment in time that focused upon a themed album by 'The Who', and as such it did the job, although the constant interjection of clips showing the totally irrelevant hulk called 'Ross Revenge', was a distraction. If the producers wanted authenticity they would have found plenty of film footage of the mv Galaxy and contemporary cameos of the 'Radio London' Djs on the air.
Instead, they resorted to a recreation which was anything but a recreation. It was silly. Even the 'PAMS' jingles that appeared on the album in question did not get a proper airing in the program. Yet, those jingles were the factor that made this album different from other albums, and at the time, not all members of 'The Who' liked it. Some hated it!
Since the show was about 'The Who', the producers should have explained how they ended up inside 'Caroline House' at 6 Chesterfield Gardens, after leaving another 'Caroline House' at another location. But they did not.
So as we promised, in due course and in our own time we will explain what the producers did not. They did a good job in explaining how a tub full of baked beans gave one member of the pop group more than a brief chill, but unfortunately too many people who weren't there and in some instances were not even born, appeared in the show as bobbing 'experts', and that, is one of the biggest problems that we are having to overcome. These know-it-all, yet know-nothing 'experts', are only expert in attempting to boost their own vanity, and we need less of that, and more about the real story.
Anorak vanity publishers scam their readers by selling them total rubbish. They are unwilling to spend the time and money necessary to unlock the past which can now be accessed thanks to the wonders of the Internet and digitalization. But the services involved take a lot of time to investigate, and their services are not free of charge.
However, unlike the hack writers we have been exposing and will continue to rip apart, we are willing to spend the time and the money to find the truth that has been buried quite deliberately for decades. Tonight Sky Arts will be televising a program about 'The Who' and their album built around 'Radio London' jingles; but will that program tell you how 'The Who' ended up at 6 Chesterfield Gardens, and will it tell viewers where they were before transferring to that address, from another 'Caroline House'? We will, in due course, just in case they don't do it tonight!
Although the same foundational text appears in the first edition of Ray Clark's book, his second edition contains a major, but very brief addition.
While everything on his page 46 is more-or-less a word-for-word repeat of exactly the same text that appears in his first edition, he added these lines to his second edition, by quoting Ian Cowper Ross:
"Dad was involved with a little bank called Close Brothers that was his base, I think they came in. If he recommended something, people bought it, he had a reputation, they thought it was a flutter. Anyway they put the money in that night."
A few lines earlier, Ian Cowper Ross partly identified the persons referred to by him as "they" in his second sentence. They are the people referred to who are alleged to have bought "a flutter" and "they put the money in that night."
These people had been named in preceding lines: ".... (he) rang his mates Jocelyn Stevens, John Sheffield, and these stockbroker guys who were in his kind of gang." So what what Ian Cowper Ross is claiming is that this was not an official Close Brothers merchant bank transaction, but something that happened after hours, via a telephone call, from the home of the father of Ian Cowper Ross.
However, while he refers to his "Dad", he does not give his "Dad" a name. Instead the mythology of Skues; Clark and Rusling is left in place for readers to conclude that the fiction of "Jimmy Shaw" has now morphed into the real life person of "Jimmy Ross", notwithstanding that the father, the "Dad" of Ian Cowper Ross is not "Jimmy Ross", but Charles Edward Ross.
Ian Cowper Ross told Ray Clark, years after the first edition of Clark's book was published, that these people who bought in for "a flutter", did so when "Dad .... rang his mates Jocelyn Stevens, John Sheffield, and these stockbroker guy who were in his kind of gang."
Then Ian Cowper Ross claimed that his "Dad was involved with a little bank called Close Brothers", but his "involvement" had nothing to do with his after hours activities concerning his "gang" of Jocelyn Stevens and John Sheffield.
That is what Ian Cowper Ross told Ray Clark who had previously name-dropped Jensen and Buxted without providing any sort of proof as to connectivity with the "Dad" of Ian Cowper Ross. In fact, what Ian Cowper Ross has done, is to trip very carefully by referring to his "Dad" - without referring directly to the person of Charles Edward Ross!
But what of the first sentence in Clark's paragraph?
Again, Ian Cowper Ross does not actually say what he appears to be saying here: "Dad was involved with a little bank called Close Brothers that was his base, I think they came in."
So who are these "they"? Obviously not the people who attended Close Brothers bank in person during normal business hours. These "they" were part of "Dad's gang" that he called after business hours on the telephone. Supposedly, this "gang" then made it possible for Ronan O'Rahilly; Ian Cowper Ross and Christopher Moore to go to a bank (unnamed by Clark), and receive a pile of cash which Ronan O'Rahilly stuffed into a suitcase.
First, let's consider Ian Cowper Ross' statement that: "Dad was involved with a little bank called Close Brothers that was his base, I think they came in." It is clear that Ray Clark knows nothing about Close Brothers because he would have challenged Ian Cowper Ross when he claimed that Close Brothers was "a little bank".
Close Brothers began in the mid-1800s as an international concern with huge involvement in both the USA and Canada with money connections to London, England. The term "little" is quite meaningless because it conjures-up the impression of some sort of neighborhood concern.
Close Brothers was anything but a "little bank"! Instead, Close Brothers, like Norcros, was an amalgamation of businesses tied together for the purpose of raising capital. Each one of these businesses under each umbrella, had its own board of directors. So a director of one Close Brothers or Norcros company within their group, was not necessarily a member of any other company within that group.
This is making it very difficult to identify which sub-company within these groups Charles Edward Ross was a member of. While on one hand, according to a court document we have, he appears to be on a board of directors related to the Jensen Motor Car company of Birmingham, there is no record to show that he was, and that is according to available Jensen records which have been collected over the years by Jensen enthusiasts of the original and now defunct car company. Looking for Charles Edward Ross in the Close Brothers conglomerate of individual companies as they originally existed, presents an even bigger problem. This seems to be to the advantage of the deceit enacted by Ian Cowper Ross.
While Norcros concentrated more on UK businesses of varying types, Close Brothers did the same sort of thing on an international level with heavy involvement in North America, and then, disastrously so, in a failed investment venture in Africa. Both were into forms of merchant banking.
These were prudent investors who did not give out piles of cash to total strangers who stuffed it into a suitcase, took it to a flat in London, opened the suitcase and threw these piles of money into the air like children in a pillow fight. But that is what Ian Cowper Ross wrote in his novel, and that is the rubbish that Skues, Clark and Rusling want everyone to believe is a factual account of how 'Radio Caroline' was financed.
Now consider this: Ian Cowper Ross claims that he first met Ronan O'Rahilly around the same time that Allan James Crawford first met Ronan O'Rahilly, and both of them, independently of each other, claim that this took place around the beginning of 1963, with a focus upon the month of March of that year. Since the beginnings of the bogus story about 'Radio Caroline' as told by Ronan O'Rahilly and Ian Cowper Ross is tied to that date, let us examine the known timeline to see how it fits in with reality.
Well, the next major event that is a known fact, is that Ronan O'Rahilly was sent to Texas in June 1963, and to do so, he had to fly from London to New York, New York, and from New York, New York to Houston, Texas. We even know where he stayed in Houston and who he saw and that the people who greeted him took him to buy a pair of cowboy boots. Guess what? Ronan O'Rahilly admits going to Texas and buying cowboy boots, he just doesn't admit to when that happened. We know as a verified fact that it took place in June 1963!
In Houston he met a representative from Wijsmuller and an engineer working for Gordon McLendon under the supervision of Charles William (Bill) Weaver, who had custody of the ship docked in Galveston island, Texas, and renamed 'Mi Amigo'. That vessel had been stripped of all broadcasting equipment upon instructions from Bill Weaver, and that happened in March 1963, which is when Ronan O'Rahilly first met Allan James Crawford.
O'Rahilly then met Ian Cowper Ross at the Kenco coffee shop on King's Road in London.
We know that he met Crawford before meeting Ian Cowper Ross, because prior to meeting Crawford, O'Rahilly did not have Crawford's notes about the 'Mi Amigo', and supposedly - according to the fable - they are the documents that O'Rahilly showed to Ian Cowper Ross.
However, Crawford had previously met Bill Weaver in London during 1962, and that was his reason for sending Ronan O'Rahilly to Texas in June 1963.
Ronan O'Rahilly went with hope of getting Crawford a lease, but brought back news that Weaver would not lease the Mi Amigo to Crawford. Weaver repeated what he had said before: he would only sell it and the broadcasting equipment, to Crawford - he would not lease it.
If Crawford did ask to buy it, a slight problem would have to be overcome in that all of the broadcasting equipment was now in storage at Houston where it was available to be used as replacement parts for any of the McLendon stations needing equipment. So if the equipment was reloaded on to the 'Mi Amigo', then some new parts would have to be obtained to make up for the parts already recycled.
In July 1963, Oliver Smedley and Allan James Crawford formed a new company that was registered in London at the beginning of August that year. It was called Project Atlanta Limited. At first this was merely an unimpressive registration, but within a few months it was loaded-up with an impressive board of directors. They included representatives of various printing and publishing companies, and the grandson of the founder of Royal Dutch Shell who lived on the coast of East Anglia, not far from the first major onshore natural gas and later oil installation. It was operated by Shell to serve offshore exploration and development in the North Sea.
Now we come to Jocelyn Stevens who places the beginnings of 'Radio Caroline' around September, October of 1963, and he says so in person, on camera, and in a recorded broadcast that is still available! But Jocelyn Stevens made his claim during March 1964, because between August 1963 and September-October 1963, there was no such venture as 'Radio Caroline'. In fact, the name 'Caroline' had been in use by Stevens' editor since at least the year 1960 in a style sheet describing the typical reader of one publication produced by Stevens Press Limited.
On November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was shot and killed in the middle of the day, in the middle of a street with crowds watching him ride by in Dallas, Texas. That event quickly focused attention upon Gordon McLendon when strip club owner named Jack Ruby shot Lee Harvey Oswald in the Dallas Police headquarters garage in full view of the cops, and with both print, radio and television journalists being witnesses in person to that event. Ruby had connections to the Chicago Mob, but he also claimed attachment to McLendon! This caused the eyes of investigators to look closely at what McLendon was up to, because McLendon was also involved with Democratic Party politics.
McLendon's ship 'Mi Amigo' had previously received press coverage in Texas when it first arrived and their were hints that it was tied in some way to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). This ship was now a 'hot potato' and Crawford's request to lease it suddenly warranted a second look. Within weeks, the 'Mi Amigo' was dry docked; reloaded with the old and some new broadcasting equipment, and hurriedly got out of port during the Christmas-New Year holiday season of 1963.
In the dying hours of 1963, that ship sailed for a private island in the Bahamas owned by Clint Murchison because he was one of a trio who had put together its original incarnation as the base for the Swedish operation called 'Radio Nord'. In his own book, Bill Weaver claimed that 'Radio Nord' was a CIA operation in the Baltic Sea. We met Bill Weaver in Texas in the Nineteen Seventies, and his family have recently sent us copies of Bill Weaver's original manuscripts information that was not in the published book, but which pointed to a secret mission involving detection of USSR nuclear submarine movements off the coast of Sweden.
Within hours of the 'Mi Amigo' departing from Galveston island, Wijsmuller bought a retired Danish ferry named 'Fredericia' and taken it to Rotterdam, Holland at the dawn of 1964. At this moment in time, neither Ronan O'Rahilly or Ian Cowper Ross was attached to any company in the UK related to a venture involving 'Radio Caroline'. In fact, it would not be until February 25, 1964 that a company called Planet Productions Limited was registered in Ireland, and according to a UK Board of Trade investigation in 1965, there was still no separate entity in the UK that was representing the financial ownership of 'Radio Caroline'. Planet Productions Limited was an Irish company supposedly acting as the parent of a British sales company called Caroline Sales Limited, which not not exist.
'Radio Caroline', unlike all of the other offshore stations remained a phantom. It simply did not exist as an independent entity!
Just like all of the other mythological tales spun by Ian Cowper Ross, the hack vanity writers such as Keith Skues; Ray Clark and Paul Rusling, have all swallowed the bait dangled in front of them by Ian Cowper Ross, and they have swallowed his words - hook, line and sinker. Then, after repackaging, they sold them on to gullible anoraks who have purchased their wares of deceit.
This is where two branches of the same investigation arrive at the same questions: if the morphing of "Jimmy Shaw" into "Jimmy Ross" is not a true event, then how was 'Radio Caroline' financed; who financed it, and why did they finance it?
With publication dates of 2014 and 2019, we have previously reviewed portions of the two editions of Ray Clark's book about 'Radio Caroline' on this Blog. That book is based upon an interview with Ian Cowper Ross concerning the involvement of his father, Charles Edward Ross. This is all part of the continued storyline by Ian Cowper Ross that began as a work of fiction first published in 1990 as 'Rocking the Boat'.
That novel introduces the fictitious character of "Jim Shaw", who is also referred as "Jimmy" in the 1990 book. One year later in 1991, and on a BBC-TV documentary, Ian Cowper Ross who appears on camera began to morph the fictitious character invented by him and called "Jim Shaw", into the person of his real birth father Charles Edward Ross.
On that TV show, Ian Cowper Ross does not make the identification that plain and simple. Instead he hints that the 1990 novel is actually a true story.
In this way the main character in the novel who is named "Paul Shaw" is gradually morphed into Ian Cowper Ross by association, which by logical extension would transform "Jim Shaw" who is also called "Jimmy" in the novel, into Charles Edward Ross, and he is the real birth father of Ian Cowper Ross. But it is in his later interview with Ray Clark where Clark, not Ross, connects the dots with the silent approval of Ian Cowper Ross.
This is the key issue in this entire mystery, because it is where a fictitious character in the 1990 novel called Liam O'Mahoney, is likewise morphed into the real life person of Ronan O'Rahilly, and since Liam O'Mahoney is the fictitious person who addresses the fictitious character of "Jim Shaw" as "Jimmy", so by extension, Ronan O'Rahilly is assumed to have addressed Charles Edward Ross as "Jimmy". Once those mind connections have been made, then the guessing game began as to who "Jimmy Ross" worked for.
It is all very clever and devious.
Ian Cowper Ross never made that connection directly from "Jimmy Shaw" to "Jimmy Ross", he let others do that, and they did so with gusto. All kinds of silly associations to businesses ensued, and these silly connections found their way on to Wikipedia, which resulted in even more silly identities being proposed.
Therefore if the bogus connection is disposed of, and if Ronan O'Rahilly did not start 'Radio Caroline' by getting a large amount of cash being handed to him via his meeting with Charles Edward Ross, then how was 'Radio Caroline' financed, and who financed it?
That is what this Blog and the Blog called 'All About Radio Caroline' are now going to address from two different perspectives.
Back in 1994, Keith Skues cobbled together a load of previously published material to which he added his nonsense about Ronan O'Rahilly: He called it 'Pop Went the Pirates', and it went into a second edition in 2009 and on his page 11, he wrote:
"Ronan O'Rahilly .... had already found seven millionaire backers including Jocelyn Stevens .... Mr John Sheffield .... and Mr Jimmy Ross."
He offered no proof, and the reason he could not do so is because Keith Skues was making stuff up, or borrowing rubbish from other sources: "Mr Jimmy Smith" did not exist! He got that silly story from Ian Cowper Ross who originally wrote a roman-a-clef work in 1990 about a man named "Jimmy Shaw".
Then in 1991, on BBC-TV, Ian Cowper Ross began to tout the idea that "Jimmy Shaw" was really his father Charles Edward Ross, and he became "Jimmy" when Ronan O'Rahilly began to call him by that name. That was on a supposed first meeting in which O'Rahilly hit up Ross for money!
Good start by addressing someone more senior than you, who you have never met before, but who you want money from, by calling that person by the wrong name!
So where did that apocryphal tale come from?
The answer is that it came from Ian Cowper Ross' 1990 novel.
That book refers to a "Jim" and a "Jimmy" and to a man with the surname of "Shaw", but not "Jimmy Shaw". In 1991, its author who is Ian Cowper Ross, began to turn his novel into a kind of roman-a-clef biographical account of his father, Charles Edward Ross. That is when the insolent behavior of O'Rahilly is supposed to have taken place, but that incident never happened in real life.
Almost as soon that "Jimmy Shaw" was turned into "Jimmy Ross", Keith Skues came along and endorsed it as fact! He claimed on page 11, that:
"O'Rahilly formed a company which was registered in Ireland and known as Planet Productions, but he had an office at 52 Fetter Lane, London EC4. He made himself a director - the company was worth £350,000. Radio Caroline was owned by Alrana and registered in Liechtenstein."
The problem for Skues is that it reveals his own lack of credibility. Not only did "Jimmy Ross" not exist, but neither did the office at 52 Fetter Lane! Neither does the company that he refers to fit into his timeline. That is because Planet Productions Ltd was not registered until February 25, 1964, and that was long after the mv Fredericia had been purchased and taken to Rotterdam by Wijsmuller.
Another problem for Skues is that the first 'Radio Caroline' programs were recorded on tape at 47 Dean Street, which was the home of Project Atlanta Limited. That company had been registered in August 1963, which was long before Keith Skues got involved with 'Radio Caroline'.
Keith Skues has a lot to say for a man who just makes stuff up!
However, Skues had help from Ray Clark who has also published two editions of his own book about 'Radio Caroline'.
The first edition of Clark's book was published in 2014, and he relied heavily on an interview with Ian Cowper Ross for his source material. On his own page 37, Ray Clark added these words:
"Ian Ross had a very wealthy father, a financier in the City, who owned the Jensen car company and had interests in numerous other businesses, including a London bank and the Buxted chicken brand."
Ray Clark offered no proof for this statement, but in 2019, just before Paul Rusling released his equally silly 'bible', Ray Clark published his second edition which now had an Index listing on his page 351 for "Ross, Charles (Jimmy)" with four referenced pages of nonsense.
Working backwards from his page 144, Clark claimed to be quoting "Barry Ainley, Planet Productions, general manager" in material he claimed to have obtained from Offshore Echoes magazine, but with no date or page number. This quotation begins: "Jimmy Ross said, 'would I go and run Radio Caroline?"
Since "Jimmy Ross" did not and does not exist, it is highly unlikely that Barry Ainley who did exist, would have made such a remark - unless he was working with Ian Cowper Ross who began this silly tale about the non-existent "Jimmy Ross". If anything, Charles Edward Ross would have been called "Charlie" by his friends and colleagues.
The name "Jimmy" had been invented by Ian Cowper Ross - as the name for his fictitious character called "Jimmy Shaw"!
Next in the Ray Clark Index is an unnumbered picture page 124, on which is a bogus telegram with a caption that reads: ".... from a jubilant Ronan to Caroline financier 'Jimmy' Charles Ross". That bit of fabricated nonsense goes back to the imagination of Ian Cowper Ross! Funnily enough, the actual wording on the made-up telegram shows that it is addressed to "Mr Ross"! Nowhere does it say "Jimmy" or even Charles Edward.
It is in fact a fake document that was either handed to Ray Clark by Ian Cowper Ross, or Ray Clark made up this fake document himself. It could just as easily be read from Ronan to Ian, which is far more plausible because the fake 'telegram' says: "Congratulations. Without you it would never have happened. Love Ronan."
What is the "it" factor? Deception and lies, obviously. That is what the hard evidence reveals!
Now we go back from the Index to Ray Clark's pages 45 and 46, to read these jewels of make believe revisionism:
"Ian Ross had a very wealthy father, New Zealand-born Charles Ross, a financier in the City, who had interests in numerous businesses; including a London bank, the Jensen car company and the Buxted chicken brand, although he had no connection with the Ross fisheries company ...."
Just cast your attention back to page 37 in the first edition of Ray Clark's book published in 2014, in which he wrote:
"Ian Ross had a very wealthy father, a financier in the City, who owned the Jensen car company and had interests in numerous other businesses, including a London bank and the Buxted chicken brand."
In that first 2014 edition "Jimmy Ross" who did not exist, "owned the Jensen car company," but now in 2019, his attachment to Jensen had been demoted to an "interest". Jensen which had its factory and headquarters in Birmingham, sold out to Norcros in 1959 which then dumped it in 1966 after failing to rescue this unprofitable venture. A lot has been written about Jensen and its managers and owners, and Charles Edward Ross is not among any of the names listed!
What is this "bank"?
Clark does not tell us, neither does he explain his references to the "Buxted chicken brand", which is clearly a brand that Ray Clark knows nothing about! That is why others began adding references to Ross Frozen Foods; MacFisheries and even CarPhone Warehouse and even turning Charles Ross into Carl Ross! The stories get sillier by the second.
Back on page 46, Clark let Ian Cowper run wild with his story in which his fiction of 1990 was becoming evermore 'fact' in the year 2019, which was just before Rusling added to the confusion by publishing his print-on-demand 'bible'. On that same page 46 of Clark's book, Ian Cowper Ross identified his father as a "stockbroker":
"Dad was involved with a little bank called Close Brothers that was his base, I think they came in. If he recommended something, people bought it, he had a reputation, they thought it was a flutter. Anyway they put the money in that night."
So the bank referred to later by Clark is identified earlier by Ian Cowper Ross as "a little bank called Close Brothers". That's more of the same kind of name-dropping used concerning Jensen and Buxted. Clark didn't check this information out because he guessed that no one else would either. He guessed wrong!
But who were "they", those people who bought in for "a flutter"?
".... (he) rang his mates Jocelyn Stevens, John Sheffield, and these stockbroker guy who were in his kind of gang."
That is what Ray Clark wrote in the second edition of his book.
According to Ian Cowper Ross this "gang" must have had money to burn and common sense in short supply because they turned over to Ronan O'Rahilly a suitcase full of cash the very next day. Clark's recital gets worse the more he cites Ian Cowper Ross, because young Ronan O'Rahilly supposedly then sent his mate Christopher Moore, who Ian describes as a "gigalo" who gained his experiences on board cruise ships, to go off and buy the mv Fredericia - with cash.
Ian Cowper Ross has wound-up the entire anorak community with his growing tales of nonsense, which means that the real story has never been told.
Or has it?
We discovered that back in 1964, serious British journals such as the 'Economist' and 'New Statemen' were getting very close to the real story. That was bad for the people pulling the political strings behind the commercial radio lobby, and they needed to create a diversion. So they prodded Jocelyn Stevens to speak up, but that was still too close for comfort. So Jocelyn turned the blarney factor over to Ronan O'Rahilly, who in turn was fed material over the years by Ian Cowper Ross.
So what is the "real story" about 'Radio Caroline', if it not the one published by Ray Clark?
That is what we are unravelling by retracing the life story of Charles Edward Ross.
So far we have traced his background to grandparents New Zealand, and then, thanks to documents such as the British Electoral Rolls, we tracked his emigration to England.
We know where he was from the 1930s through to the early 1960s. We know about his first marriage and his son by that first marriage. He is Ian's stepbrother. We also know about his father's divorce and his second marriage, and we know all of this from public records.
We know a lot about Ian's stepbrother who was both a failing promoter of musicals and the operator of a car wash and restaurant. We know about his stepbrother's business partner, and even the death of Ian's stepbrother, and where he is buried.
We know all about Ian's twin-set of aristocratic in-laws and their ties to both the British Crown, and to a scam involving the Beatles that may have led to murder!
We also know what Ian did during the rest of the Sixties after the Marine Offences Act, and his long-running ties to a man who went to work at the original 'Caroline House', before it moved to 6 Chestefield Gardens. We know who owned that property, and how 'Radio Caroline' came to be based there.
We now know all of that and a whole lot more about Ian Cowper Ross, which, if you knew what we now know, would make any offshore radio enthusiast demand an immediate refund from all of the people who have swindled them with their fake stories about 'Radio Caroline'. The scammers want money and they don't care what they have to do to get it.
Now you know why a bunch of vanity-seeking publishers and broadcasters do not like this project at all!
Too bad for them. This project will continue until it emerges in book form, but we won't be hurried and we won't be intimidated.
Every time a tune is played on the radio it creates associations in the mind of the listener, and broadcasters who were called disc jockeys because they played discs, are now dying off with their memories. Many of them have written books about their past activities in broadcasting, and because they were on the low end of the management tree, they were not aware of the activities of the people who made their employment possible. All they had to do was speak into a microphone and play the records; commercials; station breaks and add blather about nothing much in particular.
So this presented a lot of these would-be DJ-authors with a problem. If they merely rattled on about how clever they were, the book buying audience would ignore them. But if they mixed-in with their blather a lot of "inside information", like gossip about their peers and superiors, well, then they had a chance to sell their typographical wares to the hoi polloi.
Unfortunately for them they were on the lower level of the employment tree and so they had no idea of what the people at the top were up to. They were at the top, and they were on the bottom end of the money trail.
In this way many books and articles got written about the offshore stations of the Sixties, and most of them are filled with nonsense. That which the authors did not know, they got from other books or from people who relayed second-hand tales. This is how Robert Chapman got into the picture.
So when April 1990 rolled around, and Cambridge University Press published an article comparing 'Radio London' with 'Radio Caroline', it seemed as if its author knew what he was writing about, which of course he did not. Robert Chapman threw into his article just about every line of gossip about the management of the two stations that he had heard, and naturally, most of these line items of apocryphal, inside information, were derived from made-up rubbish.
Robert Chapman was trying to get a university degree, and this subject was part of his means of achieving it with a dissertation. So he wrote an article and then he wrote a book which was published the year after the BBC-TV documentary had turned Ian Cowper Ross' novel into claimed fact. Which of course it was wasn't, but it was claimed that it was.
But when Robert Chapman wrote this article for publication in April 1990, he did not have the mythology of Ian Cowper Ross to draw upon. So he knew nothing about the myth involving 'Jimmy Ross', and consequently he could only recite the old nonsense about 'Radio Caroline' being named after Caroline Kennedy, and tales like that. Tales such as the one about the wife of LBJ investing in 'Radio London'. It was what Robert Chapman had been told, not what he knew.
The real story about the offshore stations of the Sixties has nothing to do with broadcasting, and that is the real reason why no one has revealed that story to date. It has more in common with the mythology of 'Climate Change' than it does with kids being deprived of pop music.
After all, when 'Radio Caroline' first hit the airwaves, the Beatles were already big, and one attachment to the aristocratic in-law connections of Ian Cowper Ross was already cashing-in on their success, while it would be years before others cashed-in on Herbert W. Armstrong's themed warnings about our polluted Planet, and the Brexit crisis. Yet that was the message that kept the offshore pirate stations of the Sixties on the air.
But the DJs like Kenny Everett could only get annoyed when the voice of Art Gilmore interrupted his 'Big L' show with 'The World Tomorrow', even though that program was helping to pay his wages. Everett did not understand that program, and neither did other Djs who turned to writing their memoirs, yet that program had more in common with the offshore stations coming on the air, than the kids who wanted to hear Beatles' records on the radio!

The reason for this Blog and its relating pages, is because the subject of 'Radio Caroline' is really the subject of two companion stories: The first one, which another Blog is following, relates to the negative unmasking of the bogus storyline which we are calling: 'Caroline: the girl who never was'. This is where we strip naked the bogus story about 'Jimmy Ross' and how he is supposed to have financed 'Radio Caroline'.
The second storyline answers this question: "Well, if that is not the story, just what is the real story?"
Of course the answer also demands its own title, and right now we are working with: 'Caroline: strip tease in the North Sea'. It is all about the twin topics of oil and natural gas versus ideological banter hiding behind the words 'Climate Change'. It is also an explanation about how the logistical legal problems created by 'Radio Caroline', led to the necessity for new legislation after old problems had been buried at sea by a hoax.
Everything that has appeared since 1990 in print, and over the airwaves claiming to tell readers, listeners and viewers about the "real story" or the "true story" of 'Radio Caroline', is a part of that hoax. You will find the answers to the first part on this companion site and the second part of the story will continue to appear on this Blog - prior to its publication in book format, following publication of the first book.
Ian Cowper Ross wrote a novel that was published in 1990. It was about a person named Paul Shaw whose mother called her husband, and Paul's father, Jim. A stranger to Jim Shaw arrived and called him Jimmy.
The following year BBC-TV broadcast a documentary with Ian Cowper Ross. Here are excerpts from that program in which he linked his novel to real events, but he did not say that he is Paul Shaw or that his father is Jim or Jimmy Shaw. A succession of book writers have done that, only they have turned Jimmy Shaw into Jimmy Ross and attributed the actions of Paul Shaw and his father to Ian Cowper Ross and his father.
Take note of what Ian Cowper Ross said on BBC-TV in 1991. He mentions "Daddy", but that is all. Then he attaches "Daddy" to Jocelyn Stevens - not to John Sheffield at Norcros. We have found court room evidence of a teenage Ian Cowper Ross crashing a Jensen car, but that is all. The Jensen historians appear to have never heard of Charles Edward Ross from New Zealand.
We have uncovered the identity of Ian's grandfather on his father's side, and we have a dossier on his father's first marriage; birth of Ian's step brother; divorce from Ian's step mother; his marriage to Ian's mother; a possible DWI charge involving his father and his death in 1986. But what we have also discovered is that he was a civil servant who seems to have led a rather strange life in obscurity. That is not where the story of 'Radio Caroline' begins - that story is a hoax that covers up the real story that has far greater implications for the average person alive today.
That story attaches to Ian's aristocratic in-laws, and to the novel that he wrote back in 1990 ...
Because our research is still ongoing, we are not at this time announcing a publication date in book format for this work, and because our attention has shifted from the narrow focus that it once had, the broadcasting aspects of our studies are now a part of a much bigger picture. However, this story, when released in book form, will render a vast library of material that is currently in circulation about British broadcasting and its interaction with American interests, as obsolete, or misleading. In the meantime, we suggest that you follow the progress of our research in the daily blogs and web page information that we are currently updating. There is no charge attached at this time to these Online publications.
We are currently building a chronological profile of the entire family centered around the person of Ian Cowper Ross. Today we were able to retrieve the marriage records of his father and mother which we are currently adding to the previously obtained information about his step-brother and his mother and her relationship to Charles Edward Ross.
Due to our lack of progress in 2015, we halted our attempts to decipher the 1990 book 'Rocking the Boat'. We knew that this was a semi-autobiographical work which had been written in the manner of a Roman à clef novel in which real people or events appear with invented names and locations. But what we could not find was the 'key' to unlocking its real life details which had been overlaid with a façade of fiction.
There were many unanswered questions which had been raised about the original purpose and financing of 'Radio Caroline' in 1964, and while details about other stations had been made available, even though some of those details were themselves incomplete, they were discoverable. Not so with the story of 'Radio Caroline'.
So in order to cover-up this missing piece of information, an elaborate tale was invented that swirled around a fictitious biography of a young Irishman named Ronan O'Rahilly. To spread that fiction afar, the persons of Christopher Moore and Ian Cowper Ross were employed by the string-pullers behind the scenes of their puppet's mouth.
The focus point of this mythology was a meeting in the Kenya coffee bar on King's Road in Chelsea. That led to a car drive to Hindhead in Surrey to see the father of Ian Cowper Ross - at least, that is what the revised version of this story claimed.
Initially, the characters named in the book were a different trio, and it was that fictitious trio who first went to the Kenya coffee shop, and then to Hindhead to see a man named "Jim Shaw". That is the foundation of the mythology spread by Keith Skues; Ray Clark and Paul Rusling. All three of them have bought hook, line and sinker, the mythological trio invented by Ian Cowper Ross, and all three: Skues; Clark and Rusling have attempted to then turn the real person of Charles Edward Ross, into the fictitious character of "Jimmy Ross".
It should be noted here that the person of "Jimmy Ross" does not appear as a character by that name in the book written by Ian Cowper Ross!
So we have a novel and a "second edition" of that novel, not written by Ian Cowper Ross, but by Keith Skues, Ray Clark and Paul Rusling! By revealing their deception we have incurred the wrath of their devoted followers who do not like the true story being uncovered. It is not an easy task because so much time has elapsed and the "Jimmy" myth is now so well implanted.
In 2015 we abandoned our attempt to unravel this mess when we encountered another deception in a book called 'Radio Man'. That book took us on another journey of several years where we attempted to find the true story. We succeeded, but then it left those facts or pieces of the 'Caroline' jigsaw puzzle hanging in abeyance while we tried to reconcile them with the true story about "Jimmy Ross", as Skues and Rusling began to call him in their works of deception.
Recently we undertook another go at finding the keys to unlocking the novel by Ian Cowper Ross, and this time we found them in the real life documented fragments of contemporary accounts about the lives of his parents; step-mother; grandparents and aristocratic in-laws. But we are by no means ready to assemble and publish our discoveries, because there a few more major pieces to locate, although this time we know precisely what it is that we are looking for!
The scope of this Blog is enormous, and therefore we find it necessary to direct your attention to other blogs with a more focused approach. This reference concerns everything to do with the start of Radio Caroline in 1964, as it relates to Ian Cowper Ross, and the claims made about his relationship to its source of financing.

When we began to expose the virgin birth of Caroline, the true believers who never question anything, all reacted in horror. It was as if we have started off a new Scopes' 'Monkey Trial'.
For those who know nothing about that event which disputed words in the 'Holy Bible', here is a quick overview:
So we wondered, just have far back in time do you have to go to find the truth about the birth of Radio Caroline?
We flipped open our copy of Keith Skues weighty work claiming copyrights in 1968, 1994 and 2009, so you would think that by 2009 Keith had got his facts straight, wouldn't you? You would be wrong!
There are his 'magic words' on page 11 of 'Pop Went the Pirates II':
"..... the conscientious Ronan O'Rahilly was making progress fast. He had already found seven millionaire backers including ..... Mr Jimmy Ross."
So Paul Rusling was in solid head-in-the-sand company when he made the same claim in his 2019 'bible'.
How about that massive 1996 doorstopper by Mike Leonard called 'From International Waters'? On page 61, Mike says that Allan Crawford met Ronan O'Rahilly as early as 1962, which contradicts both Allan Crawford and Ian Cowper Ross who said that it was around March 1963, and the connection was made via "mutual acquaintances living in the then ultra-fashionable King's Road area of Chelsea." Now we are back to King's Road, again. Mike also invents a bogus history of Planet Productions Limited and claims that it was a 'holding company' used by Ronan O'Rahilly to raise money from the father of Ian Ross who Mike turns into ".... a venture capital broker in the City of London." But in a quick thumb-through we could not find any mention of Jimmy!
In 1992, academic Robert Chapman wrote on page 62 of his book 'Selling the Sixties': "Radio Caroline's original board of directors included C.E. Ross, owner of the Ross group of companies ...." Well, at least he didn't turn C.E. Ross into 'Jimmy Ross', even though he did invent a business identity for C.E. who he described as the father of Ian Ross. Later in the book he refers to C.E. again and makes it look as though he and John Sheffield of Norcros more-or-less own the controlling shares in Radio Caroline.
These fantasy stories, one built upon another are now so firmly ingrained that they are akin to religious dogma, and to attack these myths is like starting a new "Monkey Trial" with true believers who go ape wild. To then strip Ronan O'Rahilly of his Teflon coat and reveal him as a total fraud and liar, well, that is akin to attacking the person of Jesus Christ. After all, Hans Knot wrote that the Holy Bible was on the same level of necessary reading as Paul Rusling's 'bible'!
The anoraks and scammers have a lot to say until they are called to account, and then silence descends in response to our challenge.
You can find it on Facebook (and elsewhere) under the 'Radio Caroline Investigation' page - it is still there!
The fact that few bothered to read it matters not, because it is proof that before Paul Rusling decided in 2019 to engage in promoting a non-existent 'Jimmy Ross' - see his 'bible' page 51: ".... Jimmy Ross hoped that a family investment ...." - there was this challenge on Facebook!
To his shame and to his ignorance, Paul Rusling ignored it. Instead, he sold his make believe story about 'Jimmy Ross' to all the fools who would buy it. This is what the challenge still says:
Can you name a source for the original funding of Radio Caroline back in 1964 - that is NOT connected (in other words has not come from), the nonsense spread by Ian Cowper Ross in 1990 when he published 'Rocking the Boat'?
This INCLUDES all of the follow-up interviews by Ian Cowper Ross on BBC-TV (Arena), and later, as told to Ray Clark.
Can you name ANY source PRIOR to 1990?
The telegram given to Ray Clark by Ian Cowper Ross is probably a fake that was created sometime around 1990, in order to support the launch of his book by his mother-in-law Lady Killearn.
ALL of the various stories about 'Jimmy Ross' and ties to Ross Foods; Car Phone Warehouse; Jensen Cars; etc., etc., are sheer rubbish.
We know who his father was, and we know his name and his mother's name, and we may now know when his father died.
Ian Cowper Ross places himself at 'Caroline House' where he observed Denny Cordell as an office boy, prior to Denny Cordell becoming a producer for the same company he was working with. The only problem is that there were AT LEAST TWO PLACES called 'Caroline House' and the one where Denny Ross was working was NOT at 6 Chesterfield Gardens.
Having already PROVED beyond any doubt that the hoax story about 'Caroline Kennedy' was launched in March 1965 from New York, I now throw down a new challenge:
Can you produce ANY proof that the 'Jimmy' story spun by Ian Cowper Ross, in order to promote and sell his book, originated earlier than circa. 1990?
This is the story about 'Jimmy', and the Ian Cowper Ross MG that was supposedly driven to Hindhead/Haslemere by Ronan O'Rahilly, with Chris Moore on board in order to see the father of Ian Cowper Ross to ask him for money to fund Radio Caroline.
I say that the entire story is a LIE.
Without that story the entire mythological world of pipe dream lies spread by Ronan O'Rahilly crashes to the ground, because we have already investigated his claims to starting a 'acting school'; his inability to get a recording made and played by Georgie Fame, etc., etc., and they are all absolute rubbish.
Ronan O'Rahilly lived the life of a liar.
Without the 'Jimmy' story, everything that has been so far told to the public about the start of Radio Caroline is rubbish.
By rubbish, I mean that it is a hoax, a myth, or to put it bluntly: a lie.
Prove me wrong by producing ANY evidence to predate the 'Jimmy' myth.
If you can, then we will tackle the myth itself, because it can be proved to be not a true story.
But right now, all I am seeking is something to predate 1990 as its point of origin.
I am not claiming that it doesn't exist, but I am stating that the story is a hoax, and if it can't be predated earlier than 1990, then it will support our preliminary conclusion that the origins of Radio Caroline are to be found within the extended family of Lady Killearn.

That was written and posted on Facebook in 2018, but we have come a long way in our investigation since then!
We now know that Ian Cowper Ross' father was Charles Edward Ross and his mother's first name was named Phyllis. He had an older step-brother named Charles Cowper Ross who was in business on the King's Road, Chelsea - but not with his younger brother Ian Cowper Ross!
We now know that while Ian crashed a Jensen car into a bus in Derbyshire at approximately age 18 - which landed him in court; his father Charles Edward was a director of a sports car manufacturer.
At the moment we are awaiting proof that the company he worked for was the Jensen Motor Car company in Birmingham - which might explain how his reckless son got hold of such an expensive car. For a time Jenson was owned by the Norcros financial holdings group, before Norcros unloaded Jensen as a financial flop.
All of this goes to the lack of credibility in the stories told by people like Paul Rusling regarding the source of funding for the 'Radio Caroline' project in 1964.
We are getting comments via our publishing board about the Kenya Coffee Shop that is not a feature of this Blog. Although there is a solid block of nonsense out there in book form that has appeared since 1990, we are not the only group that has subsequently come to life to challenge this misinformation. Please direct all questions to the appropriate source. Remember, we ask nothing from you except genuine information, but we will never ask you for money to pay for information on this Blog. At some point in time we will offer a book for sale to the general public by conventional means.
At the moment we are trying to build a detailed account about the biological family life of Ian Cowper Ross, which has been a total mystery - apart from the fake account written by him in 1990; expounded upon in 1991 by BBC-TV, and then compounded in misdirection by the flawed information contained in Ray Clark's 2015 interview. On the other side of Ian Cowper Ross' life, we already have a more detailed account of his in-laws and related business dealings.
We are also delving deep into the history of Jensen Motor Cars since its history as a company is part of the life adventures of Ian Cowper Ross. Some of the links that we assumed followed-on in sequence, may not in fact be true. This is part of the information we are now trying to verify. However, the tale spun by Ian Cowper Ross is entirely fictitious.
The same is true of Allan James Crawford, because on the one side he had his own agenda that coupled via Ed White Associates and the geopolitical agenda they represented, while on the other side, Les Perrin Associates who were representing the entity known as 'Radio Caroline', eventually took over the entire operation and pushed Ed White Associates out of the picture. That is essentially what happened during the so-called 'merger' which did not take place in the United Kingdom, but in Liechtenstein.
All of these leads are currently being followed and investigated by our team.
This is Brian Lister, who is another hack writer who came into the lives of the trio during the period when they opened their research and invited other interested parties to join them in setting up a symposium. So the trio also published a 'Caroline Investigation' (various headings) email newsletter - which they circulated to many people, free of charge. This list was quite extensive and it included both Paul Rusling and Brian Lister.
Brian Lister should have known better than to act as he did, which was to take from us and run into print with his 'Lulu' book called 'Pirate Gold'. Both Rusling's and Lister's books are of course on sale by the fake station that has a web site and calls itself 'Radio Caroline'. It is a fake station because it claims to be the lineal descendent of the original 'Radio Caroline' stations of 1964, but it is not. It is a small time fake masquerading under the banner of being a 'community licensed station' with a 2021 seal of approval issued by the British government.
Rusling self-published his book of nonsense in 2019, and in it he repromoted that 1990 myth about a 'Jimmy Ross' being the key to the 1964 financing of 'Radio Caroline'. Lister self-published his book of conspiracy tales in 2017, and in doing so, he helped to keep the chain of idiotic rubbish flowing via web sites and print-on-demand publications. All of those tales had a point of common origin: Ian Cowper Ross and his novel called 'Rocking the Boat', which was not self-published.
'Rocking the Boat' was launched in 1990 with the help of Ross' aristocratic mother-in-law. She had connections aplenty within the British Establishment.
Consequently that book was followed-up with a 1991 BBC-TV pseudo-documentary 'starring' Ian Cowper Ross in which what had been 'sort-of' labeled as fiction, suddenly became endorsed as fact, and then expounded upon, on camera, by Ian Cowper Ross.
At the time that Brian Lister had access to our material, we were unaware of the extent to which real (not the 'Jimmy' variety), family contacts of Ian Cowper Ross played such an important part in creating the bogus story of 'Radio Caroline'. But the total misdirection that began in 1990, which triggered the release of so many books about 'pirate radio' all claiming to 'know the real story', and none of them having the slightest idea of what the real story was and is, has become our own stepped-up reason for this investigation.
People like Brian Lister should know better, and perhaps they do know better? We do not know his true motive for publishing his book of conspiratorial rubbish, but this is what he claims as his background:
"Brian Lister .... co-authored a guide to Managing Radio with two colleagues from Sunderland University where he is a visiting lecturer. .... he became manager of University Radio Essex while studying for his electronics degree. .... trained with BBC Radio as a studio manager .... manage(d) commercial radio stations in Teesside, Harrogate, Darlington and Sunderland. .... founding director of community radio stations in Sunderland and Teesdale. .... wrote many successful Ofcom licence applications .... worked with .... Jazz FM and Lyca Media. .... served on the National Executive of the broadcasting union ABS .... board member of the Commercial Radio Companies Association. .... trustee of the Public Service Broadcasting Trust .... active member of the Radio Academy."
Either something is clearly wrong with academic standards and the broadcast industry, or Brian Lister knowingly published a non-academic work of low-grade fiction and passed it off as a book based upon fact. Either he knew that he was publishing more rubbish that would confuse gullible anoraks buying his book, or Brian Lister has no valid qualifications to write such a book! Chose. Lister's book contains the same sort of nonsense that Paul Alexander Rusling later unleashed to aid the falsified claims of a licenced, tiny community radio station that in 2021 calls itself 'Radio Caroline'. But there is a difference between these two books: Rusling's version tries to adhere to Ronan O'Rahilly blarney, while Lister tries to spin yet another political conspiracy tale. Both of them blind anyone with an inquiring mind to even wonder what the real story is.
Both Lister and Paul Rusling make their living by giving advice to broadcasting companies, which means that either they are giving good advice, but knowingly conned and duped gullible buyers of their books; or, neither one of them have a clue as to the subject they claim to be 'experts' in, which means that they believe the rubbish they published. Which of those two options applies here, we don't know. But what we do know is that both books took from our research, twisted it with nonsensical distortions, and then palmed it off as their own work.
We do know that Hans Knot published an Online review by Paul Bailey of the Lister book. It appeared Online in Hans Knot's International Radio Report for November 2017. Bailey did tear Lister's narrative to shreds and then suggested that Lister should .... "devote some time and research and have a second go at producing a book which really does tell ‘the real story’ one day." But the question is: What is "the real story"?
It should be noted that Ray Clark had previously come along in 2014 and published the first of two editions of his book, which he claimed was "the real story", but in reality, Clark's books are built upon the same rubbish that Ian Cowper Ross let lose on the world back in 1990! As for Hans Knot, he was also highly critical of the book published in 1977 by Paul Harris called 'Broadcasting from the High Seas'. But then, Knot continually dismisses the political implications of 'Radio Caroline' in 1964, and has become a leader in the cult of worship surrounding the blarney spewed by Ronan O'Rahilly - with the help of Ian Cowper Ross.
In the view of Hans Knot, Lister really strayed off the Ronan O'Rahilly sacred reservation with claims (according to Knot's reviewer Paul Bailey), that: "The stations’ running costs were actually secretly financed by the CIA, who channelled the money through Garner Ted Armstrong, who was used as a ‘front’ to hide the real source of the money." Lister's source is our own previously published work called: "Prophecies of Dystopic "Old World, New World" Transitions Told:
"The World Tomorrow" Radio Broadcasts to the United Kingdom: 1965-1967"
A short time ago we even linked that work from 2007 to our own originating research site which has been preserved by the Internet 'Wayback Machine'.
But we did not stop there. Our research has continued and is still ongoing. What Hans Knot has done, with the help of Brian Lister, is to dismiss any idea that an unseen political objective was really behind the creation of 'Radio Caroline' in 1964, and that is what we have been researching and uncovering.
The aim of Hans Knot with the help of Paul Rusling, is to keep the brain dead minds of anoraks focused upon the blarney spun by Ronan O'Rahilly and assisted by Ian Cowper Ross. Those myths all focus upon a phantom person called 'Jimmy Shaw' who was turned into Jimmy Ross, and neither character ever existed.
We have discovered, and we will be revealing that the originating author of the nonsense story about the creation of 'Radio Caroline' began in 1964 with Les Perrin Associates after this firm took over that account. But who assigned it to them, and why?
Originally there were two public relations companies in the mix. Perrin for 'Radio Caroline', and 'Ed White Associates' for 'Radio Atlanta'. That is where the real story begins. It concerns the identity of both Les Perrin Associates, and Ed White Associates.
What emerge from a study of these two firms is a totally different agenda on behalf of two very different radio stations: first 'Radio Atlanta', and then 'Radio Caroline' which gobbled-up 'Radio Atlanta'.
'Radio Caroline' was originally created to serve one purpose only, and that was to establish the current standing of the Nineteenth Century 'Hovering Acts'. 'Radio Atlanta' was indeed the station with geopolitical ties that reached back to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), but that organization is not so unified as it may at first appear, which is why those in the know never call it "THE" CIA. In that sense, it is not so different to the make-up of MI5; MI6 or even the British Crown.
Our investigation, and this Blog, will continue unmasking the events that have been concealed up until now about the true story involving 'Radio Caroline'.
No one is censoring this story, and that is the clever part about the opposition to this story being told. Instead, non-thinking and mind-dulled individuals have constantly been fed bilge water to drink, instead of clear water flowing from the springs of methodical research. As bad as the bilge water is, it is on tap and easy to locate and obtain without restriction. Contrast that with a painstaking search for the information at great personal cost in both time and money, and it is not difficult to understand why so few are aware of the real story that we are presently uncovering.
If the story had been censored and blotted-out, we could not find it, and if we found hints of that kind of abuse, we could point to it as some gigantic conspiracy and cover-up. But there is no conspiracy and apart from the initial and contemporary misdirection, there has not been, and there is no cover-up. However, so much time has now elapsed between the actual events and today that what many think they know, is the true story. This version is now fixed in place in their minds. But in reality, the actual story remains buried from view by the repetitive works of hack writers who are still repeating the fictitious account of events!
This is why the current and tiny operation calling itself 'Radio Caroline' - with the permission of a UK broadcasting license for community radio, needs to be terminated immediately and the false filing of the company that obtained it, also needs to be investigated by the appropriate government agency without further delay.
If at some future time a 'tribute' station calling itself 'Radio Caroline', but identifying itself as a 'tribute' station, like an Elvis or Michael Jackson impersonator, then wishes to apply for a valid UK broadcasting license, we will have no objection. Nor will will object if the current vanity operation that deceptively calls itself 'Radio Caroline', applies for an immediate change of name and rescinds all previous claims to being the lineal descendent of the original station.
Our aim is to get rid of the mythology and to replace it with proven academic works about the origins and development of broadcasting aimed at listeners and viewers in the British Isles.
