".... History has turned the page, uh huh .... The beat goes on, the beat goes on .... La de da de de, la de da de da ..." But now that "history has turned the page with the death of Ronan O'Rahilly on April 20, 2020 ...." what does that imply about the pages of history?
The trolls who have come to life on and after March 27, 1964 were too young to know the story of Radio Caroline, and so they are unable to recall events that took place at that time. They rely upon others to tell them what happened.
We call that passing on of events that are supposed to have taken place, a recital of history.
But contemporaneously with those events, for a time, Ronan O'Rahilly was paid as an interpreter for mass media to explain "the real story" with which most reporters could fill their news columns and broadcast versions on the airwaves. Ronan O'Rahilly claimed that he was telling the truth about what had taken place on March 27, 1964, which by the way, was two years before Sonny and Cher recorded 'The Beat Goes on'.
Mass media by and large bought into the mythology, not realizing or perhaps not caring that they were hoax stories and inventive lies that Ronan O'Rahilly was telling them. O'Rahilly did so with the help of his paid scriptwriter, Ian Cowper Ross. He was working for the 'Duke and Duchess of Caroline", otherwise known as Jocelyn Stevens who had roped-in his wife to play her part in this charade of make believe.
In a television documentary Stevens claimed that there was no 'Mister Big' behind Radio Caroline, and in one sense that was true: because there were several people who fit that description as backers of Radio Caroline. Each one had an agenda that was slightly different from the others, but all of them were behind a gamble to get Radio Caroline on the air; to stay on the air, and to force the Tory government to issue them with land-based broadcasting licenses for sponsored commercial radio stations. Their ultimate goal was part of the big secret and the reason for hiring Ross and O'Rahilly.
Now Ronan O'Rahilly is dead, and he died after a sad period of time during which he lost his own memory due to disease. Now it is too late for him to ever tell the truth. But the ironic twist to all this is that his modern-day army of trolls who have accepted his fake version of history, are now confronted with the fact that Ronan O'Rahilly who claimed to sneer at the Establishment and its legacy drenched in past events, is going to have a funeral in a church built before the USA became a federal nation and independent of the United Kingdom.
That nation called the United Kingdom was born just a short time before the church in which Ronan O'Rahilly will be mourned, was built, and that was before the United States of America thumbed its nose at London, England, and it was at Hove in England where Ronan's father was born.
Such a lot of history, and the beat (still) goes on ".... La de da de de, la de da de da ..."
So does it matter that Ronan O'Rahilly is being properly and authentically recorded in that church at Louth, as part of a family of persons who included his wife Catherine, and as the ".... much loved brother to Nuala, Roisin and Iseult, an inspiration to his nephews and nieces Lorna, Shane, Mark, Misty, Vanessa, Frank, Maria, Gina, Lucia and to his stepson Caspian."?
Aaah yes! That mysterious sister named Iseult whose first name was for a time, sandwiched in between Fredericia and Caroline, to become the name of a ship which eventually housed 'Radio Caroline North'. But to explain that, I would have to explain a lot more than just her involvement, because the story behind that vessel is tied to the fate of the Texas owned mv Mi Amigo, and that is tied in turn to the demise of radio station GBOK, which is what I was unraveling before Ronan O'Rahilly's death was announced. So the story behind the involvement of Iseult O'Rahilly will have to wait its turn, but its turn, or her involvement, will be explained by me in due course!
Does it matter that in death the O'Rahilly family is surrounding his memorial service with factually authenticated details, whereas in life both Ronan O'Rahilly and his family did their best to hide by obfuscation the truth about the life and times of Ronan O'Rahilly?
Does in matter that the rest of the world will be forever stuck with the lies and deceit that Ronan O'Rahilly foisted upon them? Does it matter that the history of Radio Caroline as told to date is so fake as to be not just downright silly, but deceitfully misleading and fraudulent as well?
What does it matter that Ronan O'Rahilly has died in the knowledge that his greatest achievement has been to screw-up the educational base of millions of minds who thought that Radio Caroline was all about pop music, and not about the machinations of national and international power politics involving everything from nuclear mass extermination by world war; the games people have learned to play by international tax evasion; or how to both carve-up, and then exploit the North Sea for oil and gas? Oh, yes, all of that is part of the real story behind Radio Caroline!
Does it matter that you don't know how the big tax money game is played, or the actual and factual story behind the price of gasoline (petrol) you pay to run your cars and trucks and fuel the buses and planes you pay to ride on? Does it matter that this story involves political assassinations and wars wreaking misery and painful death for millions?
Does it matter?
Does anything matter?
While 'The Trio' have embarked upon an academic research project to peel back the real story, it is apparent that the mass media and its followers with their absorbent minds, have no time for studying such boring topics as "history", which can be, and which has been manipulated. So this blog and its related pages have been created to reach the masses with an 'in-your-face' approach.
"This is a Caroline Flashback: .... History has turned the page, uh huh .... Drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain .... And the beat goes on, beat goes on ... La de da de de, la de da de da."
