If you are following this Blog with any degree of regularity, then you know that it is actually part of an ongoing major investigation spurred on in a new direction as the result of the self-publication of a vanity, print-on-demand book. It was advertised for sale towards the close of 2019 by Paul Alexander Rusling, and he promoted it as 'The Radio Caroline bible'.
Rusling disputes that his self-published book qualifies as a 'print-on-demand' book, however, he is the one placing repeat orders to print his book. It is only a question of whether single copies, or multiple copies, qualify for that description. He was aided by others to produce it, and one of them compared Rusling's book to the Christian 'Holy Bible'.
In promotion it was married to a fraudulent scheme that tries to link a tiny and insignificant new and licensed local radio station calling itself 'Radio Caroline', to the original twin 1964-1967 'Radio Caroline' stations. The purpose of their confidence trick was, and has been, to obtain thousands of Pounds worth of free publicity from mass media for this tiny new radio station by claiming that fraudulent connection. So far their scheme to defraud by misrepresentation has worked to the advantage of both Rusling and the tiny new radio station.
At first Rusling tried to involve us in his confidence trick by stealing our research and then twisting it to form the basis of his own fictitious narrative. We objected and forced him to remove our name from his promotional material. However, his fraud continues to this day, and he is still assisted by Garry Stevens on a so-called 'Free Radio' forum site. Therefore, from time-to-time we have to keep reminding our readers of these facts, and we will continue to do so until their fraud is discontinued - if that ever happens - which we doubt.
We see no point in wasting more time and money on this issue because the question will then arise about the true version of events. If Rusling's version is incorrect, then what is the true version? It is to answer that question that this Blog now exists, and it will eventually lead to the publication of a new book called 'Dial 999 for Caroline: the girl who never was'.
Because of the necessity of publishing this explanation, our planned editorial '1959: Where interests began to collide', which is a continuation of the link between Herbert W. Armstrong and 'Radio Mercur', will be delayed until tomorrow's Blog.
