"What a load of cobblers ........"
That is a direct quotation from Bob Meade aka 'Freddie Archer' who posted his response to the 'Radio Caroline Investigation' page on Facebook, earlier this year. On February 6, to be precise, and he responded to a direct link to this Blog.
Without accessing that link you would not know what it linked to.
So Bob, who likes to tell others that he is Freddie, just as Malcolm Smith likes to tell Companies House that he is both Malcolm and another person called 'Peter Moore' ("two people in one body"), well, Bob/Freddie is opposed to the truth being revealed because he is all for fraudulently raising money for a venture headed by Malcolm/Peter.
In fact, as we reported earlier, Bob/Freddie was "amazed" at how much money could be raised for a fraudulent undertaking that calls itself 'Radio Caroline'! So Bob/Freddie joins with Paul Rusling who wrote a volume incorporating stolen intellectual property taken from us, in support of Malcolm/Peter's con job, and Paul Rusling seems to straddle both of the two Anorak Boards that are supposedly at spitting hatred for each other.
I guess with that kind of background Bob/Freddie, we can only add that your track record to date is not just "a load of cobblers", but a sad and even despicable reflection upon the swindling state of human affairs that is drowning out truth and enlightenment in the year 2021. It is time for you to wake up and do your part to try and put the brakes on this current slide into worldwide chaos.
You, Bob/Freddie can do something about it, because you live in the UK, and that is where the BBC is headquartered. If you keep reading our two Blogs, you will come to understand that Radio Caroline in 1964 was merely an offshoot of the British Establishment which tried to use Marconi's company back in the early Nineteen Twenties, to turn the world of British enslavement via the physical British Empire, into what has now emerged as an electronic empire sans hoi polloi "trouble-makers" in those "foreign lands".
The British Crown wants to have rid of its Empire and keep it too ("have its cake and eat it too"), and it can do all of this because you Bob/Freddie, can endorse theft by Rusling and the con job by Malcolm/Peter, while attacking this work that is attempting to unmask the lies and tell the truth. But what do you do? You call it a "load of cobblers" and marvel at the amount of money that can be raised for a swindle.
I guess that "a load of cobblers" is what the anorak community has turned itself into.
We received a post very recently from someone who decried the fact that we tell the truth while asking for cooperation, but that person thought that we should be thankful for the "load of cobblers" that the anorak community is spewing forth.
No thank you, Bob/Freddie.
Your "cobblers" are making you sick because you do not seem to be capable of knowing truth from falsehood or right from wrong.
Over on the two anorak boards, and we will throw into the mix 'Digital Spy' as well, since all three run around in circles asking the same sort of mind-numbing nonsense questions over and over and over again ("Do you remember what Johnnie Walker had for breakfast on August 14, 1967?), we wanted to know if Freddie Archer is now enjoying getting answers to real questions about Radio Caroline. You will find a lot more information today over on our companion Blog - All About Caroline. Use the link button above.
As readers know, this work in progress is the achievement of three people, and we refer to them as 'The Trio' - which is why there is a moderator as well. But it is not the product of "Mervyn Hagger", even though detractors (like Bob Meade) who support the fraudulent operation claiming to be a lineal descendant of Radio Caroline which existed between 1964 and 1967, like to say that it is.
The operation that Bob Meade is supporting is totally unrelated to the original, and the ship mv Ross Revenge (now a floating hulk), was not one of the three ships that provided bases for the transmitters and studios of Radio Caroline between 1964 and 1967, before the two stations were finally snuffed out on March 6, 1968 - forever!
Our detractors hide behind various names, and some of them are really silly. But Bob Meade prefers "Freddie Archer" because he once operated a land-based shortwave 'pirate' station in the Nineteen Seventies that he called 'Radio Caroline'. Now he supports the attempt to disguise a mere 'tribute' station calling itself 'Radio Caroline', which its main operators proclaim is in some way attached to the original authentic stations. That of course is a fraud, and their fraud connects to filing false information with Companies House and attempting to turn the tribute station into a financial begging bowl by linking it to Radio Caroline from 1964 to 1967.
We will not be silent when smears are hurled our way in an attempt to prevent the true story from being told - at last. This includes anyone else attempting to plagiarize our work (like Paul Rusling), and it also includes 'attack' and smear posts, similar to the one illustrated that was written by Bob Meade under the byline of "Freddy Archer". Everyone attempting to follow suit should heed this warning.
This is the complete text of the document shown yesterday in our video on our companion Blog. (Linked above).
It is a follow-up to an investigation that began in February 1965.
We will be adding comments and illustrations to the points raised in numbers 2, 3, 5 and 6, together with specific information and illustrations regarding point 4 and the listed companies that are named. All of this goes to debunk in total, the lies spread by Ronan O'Rahilly and others, about the so-called 'merger' of Atlanta and Caroline, and the so-called take-over of Project Atlanta Limited by Planet Productions Limited, together with any lingering notion that 'Radio Caroline' was in any way, shape, form or fashion, a rebellion against the British Crown Establishment, but rather a rebellion within the British Crown Establishment led by Princess Margaret and supported by elements within the electronics industry and by top engineers from the British Broadcasting Corporation.
If you have been led to believe otherwise, you have been led to believe a lie.

Contrary to the smokescreen of nonsense that has been let loose by those wishing to misinform and misdirect by using the fiction of Ian Cowper Ross that he originally spun in 1990, there are official documents that do exist which reveal what the UK Crown discovered when it sent its agents to investigate the real story behind Radio Caroline. Because these documents have been available for a long time, and because they have been previously ignored and they are now fading copies of typewritten information, tomorrow we will begin to show you this same information in video format.
Tomorrow you will walk in the footsteps of a UK Board of Trade Investigator who went in search of Radio Caroline ....
A look at all of Britain's major pop weekly papers for 1964 and the first part of 1965 reveals a total disinterest in the arrival of Radio Caroline or anything else offshore, and then very slowly they begin to take an interest. But what is clear is that this is no 'Swinging Sixties', because these offshore radio ships and ex-forts are playing the same sort of mixture of music as the British Broadcasting Corporation, and their announcers are more like BBC announcers than UK versions of American Top 40 djs.
But that is not what the plethora of books would have you believe. Maybe the later version as told by Rob Chapman who was only 12 when Radio Caroline began, is closer to the mark. But even then, he, and his academic pal in Chicago seem to have both got bogged down with creating a kind of Asa Briggs version, a very, distorted version of the story.
Rob was recently on a podcast so we all know exactly what he thought as a 12 years-old in 1964 - the answer is nothing, he was not even aware of Radio Caroline at first while growing up in Bedfordshire. We also know what he thinks he knows now. But what he thinks he knows and and what he should know, are two totally different things. However, his university friend (Adrian Johns) could not even get the geography of London right in his book, let alone the details of what happened to create offshore radio in 1964, or even why it happened.
We are of course revealing all, little by little and Online, and of course we are doing it free of charge.
So in keeping with our editorial policy of providing independent education for all in the public interest, here is our gleaned research from two pop weeklies that provide a time-stamped glimpse of what the Melody Maker was reporting in its special feature that was published in early 1965, and what Pop Weekly was reporting about the 1964 program line-ups for both Caroline and Invicta.
At least as early as 1949, Princess Margaret age 19, was hanging out on Chesterfield Gardens and making dance requests.
She returned to the same 21 Club when Harry Meadows brother was its Secretary, and then in 1961, Harry bought the club. Harry Meadows then talked to the press about converting number 8 Chesterfield Gardens and two adjoining properties (number 7 and number 6), into the 'Meadows Hotel', but he may have run into licensing problems with his plans. This is the probable reason why number 6 remained mostly empty until it stated to fill-up in the summer of 1964.
Although the front pillars claimed that it was now 'Caroline House', it was not 'Radio Caroline House' because there was no such company as 'Radio Caroline Ltd', and a lot of other tenants also moved in who were not directly related to the events taking place on two radio ships. But it was not long before the U.S. Cosa Nostra from New Jersey started to move into London with their New York Jewish counterparts, and they brought payola and stolen bonds with them.
It was a two-way trade because other connections shipped the drug LSD back to New York. It was initially manufactured in London by a family relative of Paul Elvey. He was the radio engineer who was arrested at Glasgow airport with gelignite in his luggage.
The Krays had commissioned Elvey to kill a Greek club owner on behalf of a Maltese gang who had contracted the job to the Kray Twins. Elvey was the man who left the hatch open so that Oliver Smedley could capture Reg Calvert's 'Radio City' fort station. While many think that Smedley was acting on behalf of Project Atlanta Limited, he wasn't, he had formed another company.
This escapade ended with Smedley shooting and killing Calvert and the totally corrupt Metropolitan Police who were in the pay of London gangsters, were called in to investigate the crime along with local police. They were all the opposite of 'law enforcement', because they were all part of the criminal underworld receiving pay-offs.
This is the world that attracted the top man in Europe representing the US Treasury and its Secret Service, to begin to investigate the illicit Trans-Atlantic trade that Radio Caroline (1964-1967) had become immersed in. This is the reason why Jocelyn Stevens and company knew that the true story could not be told while they were still alive, because if part of the sordid details was unmasked, there would be no stopping investigators from digging deeper still.
Little by little, day by day, we are revealing the true story here for the very first time, and soon it will appear in a series of books.
