It has taken decades for us to reach the conclusions achieved in this edition of the Blog, but we finally came to know the essential facts in evidence which eventually enabled us to expose the fraud perpetrated in the name of that long-deceased, and never resurrected radio station called 'Caroline'. Now you will begin to understand why we have focused our attention on exposing this fake story!
Our report is in thee parts:
The first part of our investigation concerns the genuine radio station called 'Caroline' that broadcast from two offshore ship locations, to the northwest and to the southeast of the island of Great Britain between the years from 1964 to 1967, and the final act of towing away those two ships in March of 1968. We have already covered much of this information (but by no means all of it), in previous editions of this Blog, and so that will not be the focus of this edition.
The second part concerns a hodge-podge of claims made by various people using various locations to broadcast under the name of 'Caroline', but having no legal or financial connection to the authentic phase from 1964 to 1967. This phase primarily centered around a succession of two ships called 'Mi Amigo' and 'Ross Revenge' and the person of Ronan O'Rahilly. That offshore phase also limped off the air for the last time in November 1990, and one year later the former ship and now hulk called 'Ross Revenge', was towed into UK waters and thus placed under UK legal jurisdiction.
The third phase is tied to the commencement of a barrage of misleading information that has been creating a revisionist version of events which never happened, and which differ from the known events that did happen. We call this phase 'Yesterday Never Happened'. This third phase raises the question of "who benefits" from this deception?
The answer to that question is that it concerns yet another operation calling itself 'Radio Caroline', but not broadcasting from a ship, but from on land. It has managed to secure both a UK license to broadcast, and it has also gained access to a number of UK licensed repeater operations, as well as transmission via the Internet.
In order to finance its operations, this 'Radio Caroline' has registered a UK operating company and fictitiously claimed a heritage that it does not have in order to raise and sustain enough income to support its activities. The rusting hulk of the ship that was once the motor vessel 'Ross Revenge', has now become the icon of this new enterprise, although its owner is a person, and not the broadcasting company.
By claiming a bogus heritage, this new 'Radio Caroline' company separates itself from being a tiny and totally insignificant outlet for recorded music, to being a part of the legacy of British commercial broadcasting. This is a fraudulent claim having absolutely no foundation in fact. This new company was first registered to the present operators on March 4, 2011 and its list of directors reflect the deception engaged in by this company:
On March 4, 2011, Malcolm Charles Smith was appointed as a director, and he resigned on October 19, 2016.
On October 20, 2016, Peter Moore was appointed as director, and he resigned on January 11, 2018.
On November 14, 2017, Malcolm Charles Smith was again appointed as a director, and he has not resigned.
The problem with this official record is that Malcolm Charles Smith and Peter Moore are one and the same person using two different names. The name Smith is a registered birth name, but the name Moore is a pseudonym for Smith.
However, as is reflected in the official UK government records, Smith resigned on October 19, 2016 and the very next day on October 20, 2016, 'Peter Moore' took his place as a director, except that 'Moore' is really Smith. To confuse matters even further, 'Moore' who is Smith, resigned on January 11, 2018, but long before he did so, Smith rejoined the board on November 14, 2017, which reflected that Smith and 'Moore' were simultaneously directors, except that 'Moore' is Smith under a false identity.
In effect, this meant that Smith was holding two offices as director, one under his legal birth name, and the other one under a fictitious name.
Paving the way for this bogus registration by a company falsely claiming to be the 'heir in succession' to the original 'Radio Caroline' of 1964-1967, is a series of coordinated events that began with the 1990 publication of a book, and the transmission of a documentary shown on the BBC4 television channel. The focal point of this story seems to be the person of Ronan O'Rahilly, but the more that this documentary goes forward, the more that it echoes a false narrative told in a book written by Ian Cowper Ross who repeatedly appears on screen in the television program, and whose tale is central to its fraudulent account of the past.
It is from here in 1990 that a succession of interviews with Ian Cowper Ross take place on air and in various forms of print media in which his totally false account of the past has been repeated over and over and over again. Then, the worst of the worst appeared in the form of Paul Alexander Rusling's book called 'The Radio Caroline bible'. It directly links the authentic 'Radio Caroline' of 1964, to the bogus 'Radio Caroline' that is now on the air in 2021.
This raises the question about the intervening years between 1968, when the original 'Radio Caroline' limped off the air and disappeared forever, and the reemergence in 1990 of Ian Cowper Ross. That is what we have been investigating, and that is what we will be revealing in the book 'Dial 999 for Caroline'. We will also show you how all of this relates to a terrible event:
