No one seems to be interested in the details - except us. Paul Rusling keeps churning out his rubbish that has absorbed some of our work and then attempted to amalgamate it with his own totally fictitious timeline.
Ray Clark and all the rest have interviewed the same people over and over again and derived nothing new. Why hasn't anyone ever looked at the real timeline and wondered why Radio Caroline suddenly popped-up as if by magic?
UK Companies House tried to find out who was paying for the leased property at 6 Chesterfield Gardens, and they drew a blank. That was in 1965. They tried again after the Marine Offences Act and once again they drew a blank.
Now, for the first time, we are shining a light on this mystery and coming up with real answers. You can read our investigation free of charge, but we ask that you do not steal it by trying to resell it for personal profit in the way that Paul Rusling has done.
Today's addition to our investigation is now on our companion Blog. Please use the link above.
You will find the next installment on our companion Blog. See link above.
Paul Rusling is still peddling his nonsense 'bible' for cash, but you won't find the questions that we are now asking, and therefore you won't find the answers either. But today, you will find both on our companion Blog.
Moving on .....
We keep getting really stupid comments from the anorak brigade who support Paul Rusling and Malcolm Smith and their imitation 'Radio Caroline'.
Here is an example of such a comment from a person who is not reading, just commenting. In fact this person is not "just commenting", they are drowning our inbox with very long, rambling and idiotic posts that morph in and out of sanity. We ask that if you fall into this category to send your comment to yourself and not to us since we have to delete it.
Clearly the idiotic anoraks have no idea who Beatrix Miller was; why Jocelyn Stevens hired her; or why she quit when Jocelyn Stevens announced his plan to turn Beatrix Miller's style sheet into a radio station format with the same eponymous title of 'Caroline'.
There was no column as this writer seems to infer, and Beatrix Miller was not some sort of opinion writer. But here is an example of the kind of mail we get and promptly delete, and which we will not bother to answer here:
The writer began with a statement that he "....was thoughtfully thinking about the passion of yours for Beatrix Miller. Her Caroline page and her resignation
Is not an answer to that a question:
Did the Caroline Queen mag page continue after that or certainly after 199 ding ding?
If so would that not have associated itself with the trendy aspirations of housewives on a radio station in public world in action view as being the same media influence owned?
Another point. When you work for someone and there are stupid contracts. Anything you think up - a water powered engine - a new spanner - a fashion style sheet column name is not your patent property. It is the intellectual property of the company. Even though you thought it up and were stupid enough to suck up to them and tell them
Point 3 : So it may or not have been the case that B Miller a Caroline column she named / wrote probably actually didn't write it. They usually get someone else J Stevens and a Radio station of the same banner name but with a vastly different message were not mutually compatible and their was a separation settlement. I assume the B Miller Queen column was more young and trendy than 199 do the washing up with Carl Convoy
Point infinity: Was the sole occupation of B Miller writing a page once a month for Queen?"
We have begun posting a new Timeline as a follow-up to yesterday's Blog on this site, and it appears on our companion Blog 'All About Radio Caroline'. Please use the link above.
The world of the Anorak is plainly stupid.
Stupid in the sense of being brain dead.
The world of the anorak does not encourage the asking of intellectual questions in order to fathom intellectual answers, it just hears propaganda and repeats propaganda and then asks people who once worked for the people who originated that propaganda, what they knew about the people who issued that propaganda. These idiots then write books, give interviews and bask in their own momentary spotlight of vain glory.
But they knew and know absolutely nothing.
This relates back to the start of Radio Caroline.
When Planet Productions Limited was registered as a sales company on February 27, 1964 in the Republic of Ireland, the ship mv Fredericia had already been purchased at the close of December 1963. So who paid for it, and what was the name of the business entity that had a need to buy that ship?
Who was running the show prior to February 27, 1964, and why did Beatrix Miller, who was the editor of Jocelyn Stevens' 'Queen' magazine, reveal on that same day that she had decided to quit working for Stevens?
It was Beatrix Miller who came up with the name 'Caroline' - years before Stevens then applied it to a radio station project. Beatrix Miller did not like the change of direction so she quit.
Stevens had gone to school to learn the trade of printing, after graduating from Cambridge University. Stevens had one goal in mind, and that was to become a publisher. He bought 'Queen' as a going concern, but contrary to what that mindless moron named Paul Rusling has written, he did not buy it from his uncle. Stevens also came to own several other publications before he sold his publications by 1968, to other publishing houses. By then he had already disassociated himself from anything to do with Radio Caroline, and that included Planet Productions Limited where he was also a director. He was also a director of an associate firm managed by his wife's father.
Clearly Jocelyn Stevens was running the show, but on whose behalf? Ronan O'Rahilly was working for Jocelyn Stevens, and behind Jocelyn Stevens was an impressive board of directors controlling Project Atlanta Limited. That company was registered in England at the beginning of August 1963, months before Planet Productions Limited in Ireland.
But, while Allan Crawford has been seen as the figurehead running Project Atlanta Limited, and Crawford later complained how difficult it had been to scrape together money from the sale of shares in that company, he soon came to have an impressive board of directors who had roots in the world of printing and publishing. That is, except for man who represented a legacy derived from Royal Dutch Shell, and he owned an entire village in East Anglia, just up the coast from the first Shell Oil terminal in England.
This man also had a very wealthy sister who became famous in her own right due to her association with an ITA television presenter named Alan Whicker. However, none of these impressive directors appear as shareholders of Project Atlanta Limited, they only appear as directors. But there was one family on that board of directors - father, mother and children - who had a very interesting tie-in to the world of WWII deception and trickery. In fact the work of the father had a great deal to do with the deception of Adolph Hitler regarding the actual location of troops that invaded continental Europe on D-Day. So deceiving anoraks was no problem at all.
Meanwhile the mindless and gormless anoraks who keep up their diversionary tactics of telling readers and viewers to "look over here" in order to learn about the start of Radio Caroline, seem to be oblivious to the facts. They seem to be content with squabbling over nonsense; stealing our research and contributing nothing towards an understanding of this topic.
Therefore are now moving on by beginning the process of reassembling our work within a timeline to which we will be adding more details. From this will emerge the foundation for our new series of part-publication manuscripts that will then appear in print.
Why didn't Beatrix Miller want her style sheet name 'Caroline' to be attached to a pirate radio station, and why did she quit 'Queen' magazine on the very day that Planet Productions Limited was registered as a sales agency in Ireland?
Ronan O'Rahilly named Radio Caroline after Caroline Kennedy.
Does it matter that this is a lie?
CARL 'JIMMY' ROSS OF ROSS FOODS .... and all the pleasure he gave us with Radio Caroline! It was not Ronan O'Rahilly but Carl because he put his money where his mouth is .... that's what Wikipedia says!
