While we work on the first of our own new series of books, we want to pose a question for all of the would-be offshore radio "experts" out there, who think that they can educate everyone about the beginnings of Radio Caroline.
Now in this instance we are going to be very specific.
Ronan O'Rahilly never said that he did not know Allan James Crawford, and Crawford is on film saying that he first met O'Rahilly at the beginning of 1963.
Jocelyn Stevens is on film, with Ronan O'Rahilly in the same room, where Stevens said that the beginnings of the Radio Caroline project took place around September-October of 1963.
But when did Allan James Crawford begin his first venture into offshore radio?
If you think that you know, be sure to back up your claim with documented proof with the name of your source and the date of original publication.
