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.
When 'Radio Caroline' announced its arrival in 1964, it used a public relations firm called Leslie Perrin Associates Ltd. When 'Radio Atlanta' announced its arrival in 1964, it also used a public relations firm called Eric White Associates. Each PR firm spoke to the press on behalf of what appeared to be two different commercial operations.
But what of the two companies that controlled the two radio stations?
Well, 'Radio Atlanta' was represented by a British registered company called Project Atlanta Limited, and it had an illustrious board of directors. That company also sold airtime on 'Radio Atlanta'.
But 'Radio Caroline' was not registered to any company within the United Kingdom. The British press reported that a company registered in late February 1964 called Planet Productions Limited sold the airtime, but it was not a British company, and the UK Board of Trade in 1965 still could find no trace of any operation called 'Caroline Sales Ltd' which supposedly was the company running 'Radio Caroline'.
When the press were told that 'Radio Atlanta' and 'Radio Caroline' had 'merged', it was with this piece of paper:
Unlike the original announcements by Perrin and White, this announcement was not made in the name of any limited company, and neither does this document have any form of address, or even a date. What it does have is a glaring error which refers to a ship called m.v. "Atlanta", which did not exist!
We also know that at about the time of this announcement, Eric White Associates which opened a London office in 1959, packed its bags and returned to its base in Australia. Eric White Associates was a real company that was mired in intelligence work and skullduggery on behalf of various governments. It also had ties to the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and the murky world of international finance and the Vietnam War. All of this would be exposed in the years that followed.
Leslie Perrin Associates on the other hand, was a genuine British company with long ties to the British music industry. But that public relations firm also disappeared from mentions that it was continuing to represent 'Radio Caroline'. One of its associate members did crop up later in connection with the address used by Project Atlanta Limited, and that person claimed to represent a new company selling merchandise for the 'Radio Caroline' brand. This is where the name of Ian Ross also crops up.
But what about the supposed co-joined venture now operating 'Radio Caroline South', and 'Radio Caroline North'? The U.K. Board of Trade investigators reported back to Her Majesty's government that the entire operation now based at 6 Chesterfield Gardens had no legal owner registered in the United Kingdom.
If there was one person in the Sixties who could see that there was more to the story of offshore broadcasting than the mere transmission of gramophone records, that claim belongs to the journalist Paul Harris. He was born on July 22, 1948. and he died on May 24, 2018.
His first book 'When Pirates Ruled The Waves', was written and published by him in 1968, shortly after the Marine Offences Act became law in the middle of the preceding year. It was a dreadful book in terms of its contents, because it was a factually incorrect text cobbled together from a collection of newspaper reports that he had collected over the years since the dawn of offshore radio broadcasting in the Sixties.
However, because Paul had an interest in geopolitics, he began to draw upon his academic base when in 1977 he wrote: 'Broadcasting from the High Seas'. Paul also got involved with a new offshore radio venture, and this exposed him to some very interesting people that we have also been investigating. Sadly, Paul did not go far enough with his research and it opened him up to criticism from the pool of empty-headed anoraks who seem to mimic the cult followers in that Monty Python movie 'Life of Brian'.
One reason why we are referring to the pioneering work of Paul Harris at this time, is because other writers, not at all interested in offshore broadcasting, have also been writing about some of the same people that Paul Harris was writing about back in 1977, and we now have the means of drawing upon all of this previously published work. So we are taking a moment to acknowledge the fact that Paul Harris opened the door to that dark world which is guarded against entry by many vested interests, some of whom have made it clear that they would prefer for that door to remain closed.
We think otherwise.
By assembling our research in formatted segments prior to publication as a single manuscript published as a printed volume, several questions have come to light that ordinarily would never have been asked.
One key question is why was it necessary to misdirect attention away from the real reason why 'Radio Caroline' was created in 1964, when 'Radio Atlanta' had made more than one attempt to get on the air? The answer to that question involves an understanding of purpose of intent: Why were several people interested in starting an offshore radio station in those first years of the Sixties?
Then there is a question involving the issue of division of those interests, and the formation of two distinct 'voices' that identified the intentions of the two stations: 'Radio Atlanta' and 'Radio Caroline'. Little attention has been paid to those two 'voices', but they were very different, and only one of them survived 1964 in the United Kingdom.
Neither of them were involved with broadcasting, or transmission equipment, but both of them represented two distinct sets of financial interests, and that is what we will begin to unravel in the days ahead.
