When Paul Rusling decided to take our research material and attempt to use it to support a totally bogus account of how Radio Caroline began, he did more than undermine his own credibility, because he exposed his connections to James Ryan.
James Ryan is the man who swindled the Morrison family in Philadelphia to finance the outfitting of the ship Ross Revenge. In publishing his 'bible', Rusling caused us to move the scope of our own investigation forward in time, so that it now includes events in the 1990s, and they are events which had not been a part of this study, until now.
The story of James Ryan includes the story of Laser, and that includes the story of Paul Alexander Rusling. But it is not just Rusling who is at fault here. The first chain in the fake story-telling about the creation of Radio Caroline belongs to Ray Clark.
Before Rusling's 'bible' came on to the market, Ray Clark published his book and Online interview with Ian Cowper Ross. Ray Clark laid the groundwork for the rubbish that Rusling would then publish to assist a tiny and insignificant community radio station licensed by the UK government that calls itself 'Radio Caroline' - but which has no connection to the 1964-1967 stations by that name.
The dance performed by all of the fake story tellers (as shown in the banner above), is incredible! Are they so gullible, so blind and so accepting of the nonsense fed to them by Ian Cowper Ross that they cannot see the true story?
What seems to be the most incredible part of Ian Cowper Ross' hoax, is how he pulled it off: it was so late in the day. It seems to have first appeared in his 1990 novel which begat a 1991 documentary screened more than once by BBC television. Then it turned into a full-blown lie when Ray Clark interviewed Ian Cowper Ross, who linked his account back to the storyline in his novel, and thence to the BBC-TV documentary.
The most astounding part of this tale is that it does not seem to exist prior to the year 1990 when Ian Cowper Ross' novel was published! None of the adoring anoraks who worship the bogus life of Ronan O'Rahilly and the 'Caroline' stations - named after a girl who never existed - seems to faze them at all. Instead they have very recently memorialized the birthday of former Radio Caroline DJ Johnnie Walker. He previously engaged in telling lies about Don Pierson and Radio England, and those are the lies which we exposed long ago after Steve England put them on the open market with his 'Tapetrix' brand.
Until very recently we had only been following a trail from the birth of radio to the creation of Radio Caroline in 1964, but now we are also following the trail backwards from 1990 to events in 1964. One reason why are our group is uniquely qualified to do this, is because unbeknownst to our 'trio' at the time, they were involved in multi-government investigations into the mess created by James Ryan and his involvement with the Ross Revenge. They know the true background story to the Dutch-British raid on the Ross Revenge, as well as the related hoax stories involving Alan Weiner's 'Radio Newyork International', and the absurdity called 'Sealand'.
But there is more, much, much more to all of this and that is why he had to pause and take stock of the total extent of the information we are sitting on. We are not holding up publication for the sake of it, far from it. This information is very dangerous left unpublished, and that is one reason for this Blog and related pages. We can't ask anoraks for help, because they seem to steal our research or cause trouble like 'Fred Bramley' - whoever he really is. His claim to fame is constantly writing and posting comments about our work - which he has never read.
We do welcome input from others, but the last time we tried to create a symposium in which anyone could participate, it resulted in the theft of our own paid-for research. So if we are not moving as fast as you would like, then if your intentions are honest, we will welcome your assistance, but nonsense feedback we will ignore and delete.
