If you ask an anorak a really stupid and insignificant question such as "What is the fake name of Malcolm Smith", you might get the correct answer that it is Peter Moore. But if ask them who financed the original 'Radio Caroline' back in 1964, and they will probably tell you that it was "Jimmy Ross", and if you ask them who 'Radio Caroline" was named after, many anoraks will still tell you that it was Caroline Kennedy.
Even the origins and the people behind 'Swinging Radio England' still bring up the idiotic answers once sold under the name of 'Tapetrix' by Steve England, and which were recently reinforced with more of the old nonsense by Ron O'Quinn talking to a starry-eyed person on 'Radio Corby'. Ron was happy to feed the anorak myths in England via a connection to him in Ecuador, which many anoraks will be at a loss to point out on a world map.
But if anyone dares to point out just how stupid and ignorant these free radio anoraks are, they turn on that person like a pack of rabid dogs. One good point is that these sick animals are now naturally dying off, but we can't let the rubbish they are leaving behind go unanswered by being pitching their works into the recycling bin. One or two copies should be preserved as museum pieces to illustrate how sick and how stupid this dying breed are, but for the sake of their own offspring, if their parents won't tell them the truth, we will, and we are.
On June 24, 2022, the Dave Martin forum publicized a program involving Ron O'Quinn who once again rehashed a distorted version of events involving our departed friend Don Pierson. The program featured references to a radio station called 'Swinging Radio England' which was situated on board the mv Olga Patricia.
We have found it necessary to repeat our expose of O'Quinn's words.
This time O'Quinn's platform was the 'Juke Box Drive In Show' show heard on Corby Radio, which has been uploaded and put on line by other people. The show is hosted by Robbie Owen and his excuse for bringing back O'Quinn is a related book published by Ray Anderson.
We updated our previous impromptu of O'Quinn to incorporate our 4FWS broadcast interview, plus our response to Steve England's 'Tapetrix' product which used Johnnie Walker to spread more misinformation about both Don Pierson and his mother. That was in addition to the misinformation about the mv Olga Patricia.
We have now divided our new response into more than one episode, with the first one being available for you to see and hear below this news item. Unlike the thieving anoraks who lie to swindle, this video is provided as a public service in the public interest - free of charge to you.
Keep watching this Blog for the release date of the second edition.
Johnnie Walker, Ron O'Quinn and many others puff themselves up in vain glory and invent a past for themselves that never happened. It makes them feel important and then along come junior scam artists like Ray Anderson who feed on the rubbish that people like Ian Cowper Ross feed with more fake story telling, and let's never forget Mr Big Mouth, Ronan O'Rahilly.
Some seem to think that lying is okay, but its not. When its put into print the lies spread by these misfits only makes matters worse, because those words are then recited by hack writers such as Paul Rusling who steal material and then marry it to the fake storytelling, and they do all of this for money.
We have been telling you the truth for free as a public service in the public interest. Just the other day another old story got revived in an interview with Ron O'Quinn, so we are reviving one of our video documentaries to show some of the problems created by these fake stories. It is free for you to watch.
There is intentional deceit and then there is sloppy journalism.
Sometimes both aspects of reporting are a combination of work by a deceiver who uses a hack writer who produces sloppy work. In the case of Ray Clark it is the latter.
Ian Cowper Ross spun a series of lies that began in 1991 when BBC-TV allowed Ian Cowper Ross to begin a process of turning a work of fiction into a perceived work of fact. It was perceived as fact because it was in fact still fiction. Ray Clark followed in the footsteps of this 1991 work of televised deceit, with not one, but two books that spread the same misinformation from the same source: Ian Cowper Ross.
No one seems to wonder why all of this began in 1990 as a work of fiction about events that took place in 1964, because until 1990, the misinformation spread to deceive lacked details. But in 1990, in his novel which in 1991 he claimed was as a work of fact, Ian Cowper Ross let lose and made a sucker out of Ray Clark and everyone else who believed that what Ian Cowper Ross was claiming as the truth, was in fact, a lie.
But perception today is built upon that lie, and the new generation of fools who have imbibed it without checking it out, now brush everything off with "you know what we mean".
What do they mean, these stupid and ignorant anoraks?
They mean that Ronan O'Rahilly created a "free radio station" named "Caroline" and, they also preach that the spirit of his creation continues today in an insignificant, and licensed radio station. However, that is one big lie mouthed in two parts.
Ronan O'Rahilly was a self-proclaimed selfish anarchist who used and abused everyone he came into contact with. But his behavior does not excuse Ray Clark and his ilk from spreading the lies of Ronan O'Rahilly that were amplified by Ian Cowper Ross.
There is still time for Ray Clark to step forward and admit that he merely repeated the lies of other people and then packaged them for sale to gullible fools.
But will he do that?
It's not just Ronan O'Rahilly who lied, but Stephen Christopher Moore, Ian Cowper Ross and a whole lot of other self-styled radio-anoraks as well. They have all been helped by the ridiculous, if not disgusting work, of Ray Clark.
Well, what else would you call his 2014 book that he reissued in 2019? It is a fake account about the start of 'Radio Caroline' in 1964, and Ray Clark peddled his rubbish to the gullible idiots in the anorak community, and not one of them has had the guts to step forward and call out Ray Clark as one of the main people to put a gloss on the rubbish spewed by Ian Cowper Ross.
We tried to fathom Ian Cowper Ross' 1990 novel and in the end gave up because it does not make sense. But in 1991, BBC-TV allowed Ian Cowper Ross to come on the British taxpayer airwaves and hint that his novel is actually a thinly disguised autobiography about the life of Ian Cowper Ross.
Then, in a written interview conducted by Ray Clark, this is what Ian Cowper Ross claimed about that book, his life and the start of 'Radio Caroline':
"IAN ROSS: Ronan came first and Caroline next, obviously. I met Ronan in 1963 - fifty years ago. I guess it was around this time of year. Easter, I think it was. Spring anyway, spring '63, and he was a friend of a friend of mine called Chris Moore. Really there were three of us who started it."
Ian Cowper Ross knew that his statement is a lie at the instant he spit out his words. But Ian Cowper Ross goes further and claims that:
"The actual true version of events is that three of us started Radio Caroline together. Chris knew Ronan and I'd only met him (Chris) recently but we became great friends and we shared a flat together in Milner Street in Chelsea. He said “there's somebody I want you to meet” and “he's got this idea” and “you'll really like him”. Chris was a hustler of the old school, a Kings Road Cowboy type of guy that used to exist then. They all had an American accent and a Hasselblad and a Pentax (cameras), you know. He used to sit in the Kenya Coffee Bar in the Kings Road and pull birds and drink cappuccinos. It was a great life and it's like so many things - it is fifty years ago - but it's vanished now. It's not there anymore. The Kings Road is there but those people are gone, and the Kenya's gone."
Yes, the Kenya has gone, but it had gone before Ian Cowper Ross claimed that this meeting took place. It had become the Kenco coffee bar. We have published proof of his lies many times before.
Ian Cowper Ross continued:
".... what was Chelsea (has gone). Anyway I was 19. I had come to London... I was born in London but we lived in Haslemere (Surrey)."
Yes, Ian Cowper Ross was born next door to the King's Road in Chelsea - we have tracked the moments of his father Charles Edward Ross since he arrived in the United Kingdom. His father's first move in London was to divorce his New Zealand born wife, the mother of Ian's step-brother who opened several businesses on the King's Road - with a partner. Ian was not in business with his step-brother and his step brother's car wash business was on the King's Road!
By the time his father moved to Hindhead near Haslemere, he had to thrown Ian out of the house that he occupied with his second wife who is Ian's birth mother. His "daddy", as Ian refers to his father, got tired of Ian' antics.
Ian had a court record following his head-on collision in a Jensen sports car which he rammed into a bus. Before that he had smashed up an expensive motorcycle. Ian ended up in hospital and almost lost a foot, and then he appeared in court. Ian was a useless kid who cost his father money, so his dad threw him out of his house when Ian was 19 years of age! That is how he ended up with Stephen Christopher Moore.
Ian lies a lot!
But if Ray Clark knows that Ian is lying, what does it say about Ray Clark? He published his first load of rubbish in 2014 and then he reissued it in 2019, without denouncing his first attempt as a work of deceit produced to solicit money from the public.
Ian Cowper Ross admits that what he is telling Ray Clark is coming from his novel, while admitting that he is a reckless idiot endangering life ....
"If you asked Ronan what he did, he would tell you he was in the ‘why not’ business. I know that's in the book but this sort of thing impressed me then. .... I was the perfect mark .... with a rich dad who - they didn't know this but - was prepared to do almost anything to find me an occupation in life other than crashing cars and getting drunk! (laughs)"
Ian Cowper Ross tries to use his really stupid performance on the road as a laughable excuse: "In those days you could drive around, there was no parking trouble."
He claims that Ronan O'Rahilly was given permission to drive Ian Cowper Ross' MGB "at about 180 miles an hour all the way to Haslemere with me sitting in the back and Chris in the front ...."
Then Ian Cowper Ross said to Ray Clark: "And that's how it started. We got there. I know that's in the book too but it is completely true. That part of the book is true."
But there is a problem with that lie: Ian had been thrown of the house by his "daddy" who he describes thus: "In 1963 he was 63. He was born in 1900 so (at that time) he's 63 years old, still operating in the city with his chums, you know, who used to have lunch and do deals. .... He was a New Zealander and he had an ambivalent attitude towards the English posher classes, very ambivalent about it. He used to have to deal with them every day but yet he wasn't one of them. He was an outsider, a complete outsider ...."
The age of his father Charles Edward Ross is true, and so is his country of birth. But what he did for a living was a shaded version of the truth.
Charles Edward Ross was a salesman selling dry-cleaning company franchises. The parent business originated in Scotland, and Charles Edward Ross was on its board of directors. It was originally just a local laundry which expanded into dry-cleaning.
John Sheffield's Norcros holding company was an umbrella financing operation for several businesses that kept their original management but whose shares were co-mingled to raise money in the name of Norcros that the individual businesses could not do. The dry-cleaners that Charles Edward Ross worked for was not a part of Norcros.
However, Norcros did have a company in its financial portfolio that manufactured dry-cleaning equipment and as seller and buyer that is the kind of contact that Charles Edward Ross had with this Norcros group member company.
Jocelyn Stevens' own publishing company was not a part of Norcros, but Jocelyn Stevens was both a director and investor since 1960 of a Norcros subsidiary holding company called Southcros. Stevens and Sheffied came to know each other as co-directors and Stevens eventually married Sheffield's daughter.
These three, Charles Edward Ross; John Sheffield and Jocelyn Stevens were all successful business entrepreneurs. Ian Cowper Ross had been thrown out of his father's house because he was a reckless kid who squandered money. Even Ian's step-brother was a successful business person, but on a much smaller scale than his father. Ian was just a waste of space.
That simply put raises the question of not only why, but how could Ian claim to have driven down to see his father with Ronan O'Rahilly who was a totally unsuccessful gadfly sponging money from others, and Stephen Christopher Moore who at best was a nightclub disc jockey? Why would Ian's father even talk to him about investing money when not one of the three had any knowledge whatsoever of the business they were supposedly trying to raise money for?
It just didn't happen.
When the nonsense "Jimmy" story is spread on top of the ridiculous tale, it becomes an insulting and ludicrous tale only to be told by fools to fools. No one else would believe it! Ian's father was not about to listen to a stupid business proposition and then instantaneously hand over a suitcase full of money!
That did not happen.
Ian Cowper Ross lied and Ray Clark put the lies into print, more than once, and then he published those lies in his interview:
"So this unlikely group of people came together on my dad's say-so and everyone put in a bit of money - a punt it would have been for them. They were all rich, let's just say, to put it crudely, but they were all entrepreneurs. They all thought it might be great. Ronan said it will make millions a month. It sounded great. He sat there and he gave the spiel to old Jimmy - he started calling my father Jimmy. I couldn't believe he would call my dad Jimmy. You know, the whole idea was unbelievable. ....The whole lot, the money, was finally delivered in cash. I remember the day we got the cash. I don't remember how we got it - we may have gone to the bank or whatever - but we ended up with a suitcase with £150,000 - which in those days was a fortune, a huge amount of money ...."
This is a really stupid story and Ian Cowper Ross insists that you believe that he is telling the truth, which of course, he is not. Neither is Ray Clark!
".... we went to my flat - well Chris and my flat - I know that's in the book too - we just destroyed the place. We threw the money in the air, we smashed every ornament, we danced round the room with .... the landlady, you know, and we went crazy."
Then Ian Cowper Ross claimed that: "Ronan went to Galveston. He dressed himself up in a sort of cowboy suit and went to Galveston."
The fact is that we were told where Ronan O'Rahilly went and what he did by the people who met him and put him up at the Continental Hotel in Houston, Texas. They took him out to buy a pair of cowboy boots, which in those days was part of a footwear attire that was quite common in Texas during the Sixties. Ronan O'Rahilly went to see our now departed friend Bill Weaver who had custody of the mv Mi Amigo. O'Rahilly had been sent there in June 1963 by Allan Crawford to try and lease it. But Weaver had already stripped the vessel and he would only sell it to O'Rahilly's boss, Allan Crawford. However, at the time, Crawford did not have access to that kind of money and so O'Rahilly returned to London empty-handed.
Then Ray Clark asked Ian Cowper Ross: "So Chris had just gone off to Rotterdam on the off-chance of finding a ship?"
Ian Cowper Ross replied: "I don't know. I can't remember. We had these people - or Ronan did - these Dutch guys had probably lined it up. He'd just gone to give it the nod I think. He may have searched high and low and found the thing. I don't know. It was fifty years ago. We had these people who in the book I call Vig Moller but they weren't called Vig Moller. I don't know. Can't remember what they were called."
Again, its back to that 1990 novel written by Ian Cowper Ross. He can answer some questions, but for other questions where he does not want to provide an impromptu answer and find himself caught in his own contradictions, he suddenly has a lapse of memory.
Again and again we throw down the challenge to the entire anorak community and its loud-mouthed leaders: We claim that you have, and that you still are lying in order to solicit money from fools who believe you, and you expect them to hand-over their cash to you.
Not once have you tried to refute any of the facts.
Your own response it to attack the messengers over and over again.
So here is another chance for you to set the record straight:
Prove that what Ray Clark has published is the truth.
We say that you can't because everything that has been printed by Ray Clark to promote the tales of Ian Cowper Ross is a lie!
Did he know that he was hired to misdirect by deception, and is this why he became a cynical fraudster?
While the anoraks are blocking anything to do with the revelations on this site (just like the Establishment is blocking Russian media, or trying to), we know that their approach will not work. You can't hide from exposure in this multi-media age!
If you want to see RT television daily and watch its excellent documentaries that rival anything created by BBC, you can. Maybe the mainstream media tells you that you can't, but they are not telling the truth, and we know that what they are saying and writing about censorship is total rubbish, because we can see RT productions at any time we chose to do so, and we know that you are watching and reading this Blog! In fact, the closer we get to exposing the lies and deceit that the little trio of useful fools that were employed by Stevens Press Limited created back in 1964, the higher our numbers go!
Right now our numbers of viewers are climbing higher once again.
The anorak media has tried to do this before. That is when we began to tell the world how Ronan O'Rahilly had lied and deceived everyone, and then we quietened down to spend more time on building our facilities (library and conference room), while performing additional deep diving into research files. Then our numbers declined.
But, it you saw yesterday's video you will know why our viewership is climbing once more - especially since we have now revealed our ongoing publishing operation methodology and identified a stated dateline when the really big exposés will begin take take place. You don't have long to wait for that.
So far, it seems, the anoraks' media is keeping quiet about what you are learning here, but once we make a move to attract the attention of mainstream media to the true story, the real story, not the childish and repetitive stuff that has spewed out since 1991 praising the tin pot anorak god Ronan O'Rahilly, and we finally reveal why in 1964 he lied, he cheated and he defrauded in order to serve his own Master at Stevens Press Limited. As we showed you yesterday, it was Stephen Christoper Moore who gathered together Ronan O'Rahilly and Ian Cowper Ross at the behest of Stevens Press Limited.
Yet, what you still don't know because we have not revealed the story as yet, is just what the real story, the true story about the start of 'Radio Caroline' is. But we will pull back the curtains of censorship, very, very soon.
In the meantime. keep attending this Blog on a daily basis, and do tell your friends that what is about to appear here, will then cause consternation among the anoraks - once they realize that their fake game is finally up.
.... especially now that we have updated this video. We only stumbled across the answer to the biggest riddle of them all concerning the 1964 origin of 'Radio Caroline' very late last night, and so the first version of this video did not have the additional information that it now contains. To this date no one else has even claimed to have discovered this essential missing piece of the 'Radio Caroline' puzzle!
One reason for us prodding the anorak plagiarists is to give them every opportunity to hang themselves by their own lack of knowledge and their own lack of journalistic skills - combined with a vanity-stricken drive for them to rush into print and to 'tell all' (which is nothing at all), in front of a camera and microphone. Their own works tell all. They do not know the real story and instead they have fallen hook, line and sinker for the misdirection aimed at fools. This video is in a sense, our dateline stamp and it provides the dividing line between 'them' and 'us'.
We will be naming the identity of 'Mister Big' sometime during July of this year when the fourth installment of our part work is published by an extremely reputable source. If you have read the previous three installments of this work in its serialization format, then you will be interested to know that an expanded omnibus version will also be in print by the end of this year. It is intended for that book to become the first in a series of volumes that will also incorporate some of the work previously published in both non-fiction and textbook formats by our own 'Trio' members. For everyone in the anorak community, you will just have to wait because we cannot trust your 'authors' not to steal our research by plagiarizing our material and then twisting it to fit the same false narrative that is alluded to in this new video.
No, we won't tell you, but we will point out something that everyone has overlooked, and that is something that Jocelyn Stevens denied, even though no one was asking .... and what he denied was indeed true!
We mean everything except the bits about location and greasy slaves.
There are two basic questions that anoraks and people like Ray Clark cannot answer, and both of these questions provide part of the answers to two more questions: who created 'Radio Caroline' in 1964, and why did they they do it?
We know a lot about the true answers, and we also know a lot about the three key individuals who were used to mislead everyone away from searching for the true answers.
One person is Stephen Christopher Moore.
He arrived at Southampton in 1948 and over the following years he got to know Ronan O'Rahilly. Stephen called himself 'Chris Moore' when he was a disc jockey for a property owner who managed more than one venue with an eponymous name that was affiliated with Stephen Moore's place of work.
Stephen Moore also met Ian Cowper Ross who he introduced to Ronan O'Rahilly.
This gang of three were indirectly hired by Jocelyn Stephens who was the public link in a chain of publicity vendors. A lot of it was false publicity. Some of the elements in that chain came together by chance rather than design.
This includes a young venture seeker and publicity hound named Robin Leach who attended school at Harrow. It was Robin Leach, for his own ends and purposes, who dreamed up the 'Caroline Kennedy Hoax', but its telling was first handed-off to Stephen Moore, while Ronan O'Rahilly was used as an alternative voice to offer a totally fictitious explanation as to where the name 'Caroline' had come from.
Ronan O'Rahilly also made a lot of false claims about Georgie Fame who made it clear that the kind of music he wanted to play was not commercial, and even though he already had an EMI recording contract, his career was going nowhere. Just after 'Radio Caroline' came on the air, Georgie Fame was ready to emigrate to the USA. Ronan O'Rahilly's lies about Georgie Fame are many, but the fact is that Ronan O'Rahilly was a liar who mislead everyone who was silly enough to listen to him.
It was Beatrix Miller, the editor of 'Queen' who began to use and promote the name 'Caroline', but when Jocelyn Stevens bought the company that published 'Queen', she quit. But Jocelyn Stevens managed to hire her back. For a time everything went according to plan, but then Jocelyn Stevens was brought into the Pye Plan to create 'Radio Caroline', except that the directors of Pye knew nothing about the plan.
However, Stevens had not just bought one publication named 'Queen', he bought several other publications as well, and then he got the idea to turn the quiet and sedate 'Caroline', into a slut. Since 'Caroline' was named after a real person that Beatrix Miller knew, Beatrix Miller quit for a second time, and this time on the same day that Planet Productions was registered in Ireland as a sales outfit. The ship had already been bought, along with the equipment and a number of former BBC engineers became part of a plan to set up a broadcasting station on a ship. One of those engineers had ties back to the early days of the BBC at Savoy Hill, and his expertise was in studio equipment. A. N. Thomas was another technician, and he supervised the 'Caroline' transmitters.
Ironically the grandfather of the real 'Caroline' had talked about doing something similar aboard a ship back in the Nineteen Thirties, but at that time the technology did not make it feasible. Through this man the real story of 'Caroline' comes into play along with the connecting dots that lead to Jocelyn Stevens.
There are a lot, and we do mean a lot of unrelated strands in this very complicated story that only came together as part of an omnibus plan just before the commencement of broadcasting in 1964 by 'Radio Caroline'. Yet, the mythology of 'Caroline Kennedy' only comes into play in 1965, and no one asks why?
The same thing is true with a person called 'Jimmy Ross' who is mentioned by a newspaper without explanation, until 1990 when Ian Cowper Ross invented fantasy drive to Hindhead by Stephen Moore, Ronan O'Rahilly and Ian Cowper Ross. He did that by inference when he subtlety inked the text of his 1990 novel about a family named Shaw, by retrospectively connecting the dots back in time to the year 1964, and his opportunity came first on BBC-TV, and then with an interview by Ray Clark.
So come on Ray Clark: Step up and admit that you have no source for this fantasy car ride other than the suggestions made to you by Ian Cowper Ross. He was one of three very young and very immature guys who were picked-up by Jocelyn Stevens.
The real father of Ian Cowper Ross was a genuine salesman selling dry-cleaning franchises, and even Ian has painted himself as a useless kid who his real father was sick of financially supporting, since he had got to the useless stage of wrecking an expensive motorcycle and then a sports car. This landed him first in hospital and then in court. It was Jocelyn who gave this kid something to do as part of the team whose job it was to lie to everyone and anyone who would listen to them, and this included the press.
Apparently it still includes Ray Clark and Chris Edwards of OEM.
Perception is reality if you do not know what reality is, and clearly the anoraks do not because their Masters who are feeding the media they are reading, listening to and watching, will not tell them. If OEM told the truth, it would now go out of business, because it would reveal that its text is but a lie, and the spins that it puts on reproduced news cuttings (often without source and date) are accompanied by pictures that require textual captions that can only be interpreted by the misinformation in its body of text. Sometimes that misinformation is by omission and sometimes it is by commission - such as its foundational lies about Ronan O'Rahilly.
That misinformation is contained within the falsehoods that are propping-up Malcolm Smith, who is also aided by a string of post-1991 publishers that include, Ray Clark and Smith's lapdog Rusling. Ray Clark is the one who really holds the key to bringing down Malcolm Smith, if and when Ray Clark steps forward to say that he was conned by Ian Cowper Ross.
The Ian Cowper Ross nonsense began in 1990, and expanded from print to TV in 1991, and then, Ray Clark interviewed Ian Cowper Ross who applied a coating of gloss over his lies. But without the lies of Ian Cowper Ross, the entire structure of Malcolm Smith's "Caroline continues" falsehood is ripped apart. So is the deception published by OEM.
However, Chris Edwards knows part of the true foundational story that undermines Ray Clark's words, and so Chris Edwards could, if he wanted to, bring down the entire 'Caroline' fraud. What Ray Clark knows is known only to Ray Clark since we have never worked with him. We have worked with Chris Edwards.
But we dare not reveal here what we now know post-OEM and Chris Edwards due to the activities of thieves such as Paul Rusling. What we can do here is to poke and prod anoraks to respond with statements about what they do not know about the truth, and it is these statements that can and will be used against them.
Chris Edwards KNOWS what we discovered regarding page 276. Chris Edwards knows that Ronan O'Rahilly was a fraud. How much longer is Chris Edwards going to hold out covering-up the real story? Or is Chris Edwards going down with the rusting remains of a hulk called 'Ross Revenge'? Your call Chris. Stand with the idiot anoraks, or tell the idiot anoraks the truth - as you now know it. We know that you have not been told about our findings since page 276, but you know enough of the exposed true story to present you with a dilemma: Do you now tell the truth, or do you continue to sell the lie? Your call.
On June 16, 2022, Malcolm Smith claimed that "while the public are largely aware that there was 'something' called Caroline .... this is in the past tense not present tense. As a brand, the name still has great value ...."
How is that again?
Smith: The public are aware that "something called Caroline" once existed in the past.
Smith: The public place great "brand value" on "something called Caroline" that once existed in the past.
On June 16, 2022, Malcolm Smith, falsely calling himself "Peter Moore", wrote and posted this on the Dave Martin forum ....
"Most of you will know that the 1967 MOA made any promotion of Radio Caroline illegal along with all the other activities where penalties and imprisonment would happen. The daily programme schedules that were in the national dailies at once disappeared. My father worked for the Sunday Times and I naively asked him if Caroline could not still be a news story. He returned to tell me that his editor stated that he would only report on Caroline if it sank. .... So while the public are largely aware that there was 'something' called Caroline .... this is in the past tense not present tense. As a brand, the name still has great value which is why people have vigorously tried to take and use the title at various times."
But is Malcolm Smith's statement about 'brand value', a true statement?
No, it's not, and even Malcolm Smith does not believe that it is!
Malcolm Smith claims that "as a brand, the name still has great value", but Malcolm Smith does not believe this to be a true statement of fact!
Here is what Malcom Smith says about his tin pot licenced station which he calls 'Radio Caroline' and its primary Internet streaming service: "We peak at 2500 not counting AM and DAB that we cannot survey. Someone will surely say ' but it's not ten million is it '. No, it is not."
The fact is that Malcolm Smith admits that the general public is not listening to his own personal venture that is totally unrelated to the 1964-1967 'Radio Caroline'. His venture has, in terms of actual listeners, no real audience at all.
Malcolm Smith has no audience worthy of being considered a player in the mass market medium called radio broadcasting, whether it is by Internet streaming, AM, DAB or anything else. This is the reason for his obstructionist lies that interfere with the true story of the 1964-1967 'Radio Caroline' being told. Malcolm Smith has to lie using the fake storylines spun by everyone from Ray Clark to Paul Rusling, in order to deceive the media into giving him free coverage of any sort.
Malcolm Smith is using every method possible to deceive the public through false information, whether it is over the Internet, filings with Companies House, or the Charity authority in England. Malcolm Smith has to wrap his arms around something that did exist and which at one time in the distant past did cause major repercussions in British radio back in 1964, if only to bring about the arrival of the Texas-based 'Radio London' which became the model adopted in part by the BBC for its new 'Radio One'.
Malcolm Smith continues to promote more than a myth: Malcolm Smith is promoting a lie which is interfering with public education. That is Malcolm Smith's Number One achievement to date!
Ray Clark produced two editions of this book. Why didn't his second version correct his first version, and why has he helped Ian Cowper Ross to promote the lies broadcast by BBC-TV in 1991 which are founded upon a linked chain of lies that began with Stephen Christopher Moore and ended with Ronan O'Rahilly?
We tried to work with anoraks to uncover the true story; the real past account of events. But each time we inched further by unmasking the lies spread by people like Ronan O'Rahilly and his henchmen such as Stephen Christopher Moore and Ian Cowper Ross, the anoraks in question got frightened. Their world of falsehood and make-believe was about to be exposed as a fraud; as a fake, as part of a yesterday that never happened.
Instead of wanting to further a symposium where everyone who has an interest in a true account of the cultural development of modern communications and the accompanying laws surrounding that cultural development, vested interests moved to bribe the anoraks into attacking the messenger, since they could not attack the message. Those who went along with the bribes were awarded licenses, and those who did not were attacked in order to shut them up.
It has taken us decades fighting against rogue historians and politicians of the Establishment, as well as their sneering lap-dog anoraks who were all waiting for their bribes. It has taken decades to get to the point that we are now nearing: the exposure of a totally different timeline with a totally different series of key players, along with the debunking of the con men and their media clowns who do not want the true story to be told.
Why does the Establishment want the lid to be kept on this story? The answer is money, and that money buys the political power to silence the true story.
But that story is being told, and it has been told bit by bit as the true story has become revealed.
Soon, very soon (this year), the first unveiling of the framework of that true story will take place. It is all being done very carefully so that the howling critics can be silenced by footnotes, endnotes and third-party reference documentation. Of course those yelling and screaming probably won't notice, because they will be too busy yelling and screaming at the messenger, and so they won't hear or read the message.
What will happen then is that those "convinced against their will, will be of the same opinion still." We know that.
However, when the curtain is pulled back it will be accomplished in such a way as to open up discussion, not silence it. As much as Prince Charles may have been born into an Establishment which he has not shunned, he too will have to address those facts that will appear in evidence, because modern means of communications in the hands of individuals can no longer be silenced by centralized censors.
So if you are wondering what is taking us so long, ask your friends, the paid-off, ignorant, and cultish anoraks publishers and broadcasters of the anorak lies. Ask them when they will ever accept the fact that Ronan O'Rahilly was a liar, and ask them when they will admit that everything that Ronan O'Rahilly claimed in the name of 'free radio' was, and is, a lie.
Both of these characters know the truth, but neither one can voice the truth, because of self-interest.
While the anoraks all admit that this 1990 novel by Ian Cowper Ross is a work of fiction, they cannot explain why in 1991, BBC-TV allowed Ian Cowper Ross to retell his fictitious story as though it is fact.
Nor can the brain-dead anoraks explain why Ray Clark interviewed Ian Cowper Ross as though his novel was a work of non-fiction.
Nor can they explain why a fake story about a man named "Jim Shaw", who is also addressed as "Jimmy", is then turned into the father of Ian Cowper Ross. The reason for that lie, is to create a totally fake story about the 1964 financing of 'Radio Caroline' by Ronan O'Rahilly and Stephen Christoper Moore.
That lie is based upon a person called 'Jimmy Shaw' who does not exist.
Of course it is all a pack of lies, but that did not stop Ray Clark from issuing two books containing these expanded lies, or from Ray Clark going on radio and television and telling his reinterpretation of these same lies. But then a floodgate of hack writers who were all seeking vanity publication by repeating these same lies, climbed on to this same bandwagon of lies.
Therefore we call upon Ofcom to explain why they have also endorsed these lies, and why the Charity authority in England is allowing money to be solicited from the general public by the continued promotion of these lies?
You can discuss this here (click this link).
The bottom line is that the entire storyline about the 1964-1967 creation of 'Radio Caroline' as told by many authors after the publication of Ian Cowper Ross' 1990 novel, are totally fictitious, to the point where our exposure shows just how ridiculous and childish they are. See our updated evaluation of the Ray Clark interview using the menu button above.
Given the involvement by Ray Clark in promoting the fables of Ian Cowper Ross to the point of conjuring-up an entirely fictitious account about the founding in 1964 of 'Radio Caroline', and the facts that we are now laying before you (free of charge) by stripping away the lies for all the world to read and see, it is time for Ray Clark to step forward and admit that he published two books which had the effect of promoting a lie about not just 'Radio Caroline', but about the people hiding in the shadows, as well as the noisemakers who spun the lies and distortions. This declaration also applies to everyone who has been publishing nonsense and taking to the airwaves to deliver that nonsense to as many listeners and viewers as possible. At what point in time will Ray Clark admit that he was fooled, and that he has fooled everyone reading his books? From the standpoint of ethics in journalism, refunds to readers should now be made. The 'game' of deception that began in 1990-1991 is over!
Click the link below for a reminder of the part that Ray Clark has played in this ongoing deception:
On camera in 1991, Chris Moore told the BBC-TV audience that he was the person who made 'Radio Caroline' a reality by introducing Ronan O'Rahilly with an idea, to the father of Ian Cowper Ross who had some money and could turn that idea into a reality. However, what Chris Moore told the audience was a lie.
In 1990 Ian Cowper Ross wrote a novel about a man name 'Paul Shaw', and his book was financed by Ian Cowper Ross' aristocratic mother-in-law. Then Ian Cowper Ross became the 'star' of the 1991 BBC-TV documentary in which he began to infer that his 1990 novel was really his own autobiography.
Please note that he never specifically says this on camera.
What happens next is that Ray Clark interviewed Ian Cowper Ross who then began to further blur the line pf fantasy and fact. Extracts of Ross' 1990 novel are turned into reference to his own life, and the life of his father who he calls "Daddy".
In the 1990 novel a character called "Jimmy" is introduced without a surname.
But since the main character in the book is called 'Paul Shaw', and since "Jimmy" is supposedly the father of this non-existent character named 'Paul Shaw', then says Ray Clark and a host of others who climb on to the bandwagon of making things up (lying), then, "Jimmy" must be "Jimmy Shaw".
The only problem is that "Paul Shaw" does not exist, and therefore there cannot be a "Jimmy Shaw".
However, the minds of the totally ludicrous but manipulative anoraks are forced to use the words of Ian Cowper Ross on BBC-TV in which he implies that his novel is in fact autobiographical, without ever specifically making that claim. Ray Clark and others see no problem in drawing that specific conclusion, and with that hurdle cleared, the mindless and totally absurd, stupid, lying and yes, stealing anoraks turn "Jimmy Shaw" into "Jimmy Ross", and thus claim that he is the father of Ian Cowper Ross.
The father of Ian Cowper Ross is not "Jimmy Ross".
The fact that the father of Ian Cowper Ross is not named "Jimmy" but Charles Edward, does not bother hacks like Paul Rusling. He claims in his 'bible' that he published by his bulk print-on-demand methodology, that the friends of Charles Edward called him "Jimmy".
Where did he get that from?
He made it up.
The smart one in all this is Ian Cowper Ross. He giggled his way through the 1991 BBC-TV program as though he was high as a kite, and while he spun a yarn about his 'Daddy", he didn't cross the line and ever claim on camera that his novel of 1990 was the story of his life.
What about the American catalyst named Stephen Christopher Moore?
Well Chris Moore, merely says on camera that he introduced Ronan O'Rahilly to Ian Cowper Ross.
It is Ian Cowper Ross on camera who mocks Stephen Christopher Moore for having something to do with a cruise ship which made him an expert on purchasing a ship, and that Chris Moore took a case full of bank notes out of the UK to buy a vessel. But again, the names and the details are omitted. Listen again. Ian Cowper Ross never said that Chris Moore bought the mv Fredericia.
It is all smoke and mirrors.
A lot of fools hearing what they want to hear, and not what is actually said, have concocted this ridiculous tale about the start in 1964 of 'Radio Caroline'.
What is even more surprising is that up until 1990, no one tried to explain exactly how 'Radio Caroline' was financed in 1964, and as a matter of fact, aside from the revelations here on this Blog, that story has not even begun to be told as of today's date!
It was Jocelyn Stevens who came forward in early 1964 and admitted that he had a hand in the creation of 'Radio Caroline'. Stevens claimed that the venture began somewhere around September-October of 1963, although he was careful not to provide any specific dates.
Because Stevens was married to the daughter of John Sheffield, he is dragged into the fog of early press stories as being one of the financiers. The fact that Stevens in about 1960 became a director and shareholder in a subsidiary of Sheffield's primary enterprise, is not even mentioned. Nor is the fact there was no such company as 'Planet Sales' and that the UK Board of Trade had undertaken its own investigation to see who was behind 'Radio Caroline'. The company registered in Ireland called Planet Productions Limited was only formed a few weeks ahead of 'Radio Caroline' going on the air.
So who bought the ship and the radio equipment, and who paid for it to be installed?
Steven Christopher Moore still did not know in 1965 when he sued Ronan O'Rahilly in the UK High Court.
It is time to shut down Malcolm Smith's bogus claims. If he wants to call his tin-pot enterprise 'Radio Caroline', we have no objection - so long as he does not pretend that there is any connection to the original station 1964-1967 station called 'Radio Caroline'.
Now what should we do about the BBC and its habit of spending tax money to promote a lie, which they have been doing on radio, television and in print for decades?
That is something we are now pondering, because that act of tax-payer misfeasance and malfeasance has to stop, and the BBC has to make amends by finally telling the truth, particularly since it was a bevy of BBC personnel who made the engineering side of the 1964-1967 so successful.
The BBC has its own skeleton in the 'Radio Caroline' closet.
It was all part and parcel of a military-style operation whereby the left hand did not know what the right hand was doing, and neither did the owners of the various 'left hands' know the identities of the people controlling the 'right hands', and quite often, they did not know who had employed them.
Stephen Christopher Moore discovered that when he filed his suit in the High Court for wrongful dismissal!
In 1991, BBC-TV broadcast the foundation of the big anorak lie now trumpeted by Malcolm Smith with his two begging bowls that ask for your cash.
Malcolm disguises his intention this way:
First he has a ship which has become a rusting hulk that has absolutely nothing to do with the 1964-1967 story of 'Radio Caroline'. So Malcolm claims that it is the "Home of Radio Caroline". No it isn't, it is the home of Malcolm Smith's big lie that he uses to solicit money from really silly anoraks. To give his swindle an air of respectability, Malcolm Smith has obtained charity status for it under the laws of England.
Second, Malcolm Smith already filed fake registration papers with UK Companies House to create a limited company, again, under the laws of England. Malcolm Smith accomplished this by at one point filing as two different people: 1) a fake identity of 'Peter Moore' who does not and never has existed; 2) using his real name of Malcolm Smith.
With what seems to be two official stamps of approval upon his fraudulent claims (a limited company and an official charity), he then set forth to make his claims work for him in soliciting money. To do this, Malcolm Smith began a creeping plan of attention-getting by using the eponymous name of 'Radio Caroline' for a fake and tiny and insignificant radio station. With his foot in the door, Malcolm Smith applied for a power increase, and got it. He also applied to take over another station which he also named 'Caroline', and he succeeded in that as well.
Then along came Paul Alexander Rusling who was receiving our 'Caroline Investigation' newsletter - free of charge. Rusling made two visits in person to our embryonic new library in Scotland. In order to undermine our research and bolster Malcolm Smith's fraudulent enterprise, Rusling published a book which he called a 'bible' and which is nothing more than a sales piece for Malcolm Smith's enterprise. He achieves this by falsely claiming that the 1964-1967 venture called 'Radio Caroline' still continues on the air today.
By linking the story of the 1964-1967 'Radio Caroline' to Malcolm Smith's eponymous fraud.
But the main goal of Rusling was to undermine this research project by taking our documentation at that time, and then hammering it into a matrix of falsehood that bolstered the idiotic and childish claims of the con man known as Ronan O'Rahilly. In that way we would, Smith hoped, be neutralized and have no impact upon his solicitations for monetary support using thousands of pounds of free advertising in stories published by the mainstream press, and broadcast by the British Broadcasting Corporation. All of them have been used by Malcolm Smith to make the false claim that 'Caroline Continues', even though it doesn't: That claim is a lie.
Then Malcolm Smith came out swinging and began making personal attacks on one of the researchers in this investigation into the true origins of the 1964-1967 'Radio Caroline', and this was attached to the line that he and Rusling were more acquaintances rather than conspirators seeking to defraud the general public.
But as you can see in the video above, the fake story began as a novel called 'Rocking the Boat' that was written by Ian Cowper Ross in 1990, and published with help from his aristocratic mother-in-law, and promoted in the pages of the Establishment magazine called 'Tatler'. Then that novel was aired with calculated revisions in 1991, in a BBC-TV documentary called 'A Pirates Tale' in which Ian Cowper Ross implied that his 1990 novel was in fact his autobiography, meaning that it was a true account about the start of 'Radio Caroline'.
As the video above shows, an American named Stephen Christopher Moore claims that he had a flat mate named Ian Cowper Ross who had a rich father. It is an important part of this swindle to note that Ian Cowper Ross only refers to his 'Daddy' who he never identifies by name. Stephen Christoper Moore also says that he had another friend named Ronan O'Rahilly. Because O'Rahilly had an idea needing financing, Stephen Christoper Moore introduced O'Rahilly to Ian Cowper Ross whose father financed ideas.
According to Ian Cowper Ross on the 1991 BBC-TV program, and using the text of his 1990 novel to explain the sequence of events that followed the introduction by Stephen Christoper Moore, the three of them met at the 'Kenya' coffee shop. However, some time before this supposed meeting, that coffee shop had been renamed 'Kenco', as our video clearly shows.
This is where the bait-and-switch swindle turns the text of the novel into the script of the documentary. In the novel, the names of Moore, O'Rahilly and Ross do not appear. Three other characters are named with what might be construed as cover names for Moore, O'Rahilly and Ross.
On the BBC-TV documentary, Stephen Christopher Moore identifies himself, Ronan O'Rahilly and Ian Cowper Ross as the three individuals in question, but never does Moore link what he is saying to the 1990 novel. Neither does Ian Cowper Ross.
Upon arrival at Hindhead near Hazelmere, Surrey, which is where the real father of Ian Cowper Ross lived, the three fictitious characters pile out on the car and the Irish character in the novel begins addressing the character they have come to see by the name of 'Jimmy'. Because the novel says that this man's surname is 'Shaw', then his first name must by 'Jimmy', even though those two names are never connected together in the novel.
On the 1991 BBC-TV documentary, Ian Cowper Ross is careful to always call his father 'Daddy', and not 'Jimmy', but he does begin the process of blurring the 1990 novel with his 1991 delivery on television. It is only when the floodgate of books and magazine and newspapers articles begin to appear after the 1991 BBC-TV documentary, that Ian Cowper Ross begins to give interviews to people like Ray Clark.
When talking to Ray Clark by answering questions, Ian Cowper Ross begins to further embellish his 1990 fictitious tale to the point that he starts to claim that certain parts, like the drive to Hindhead are true. Like a true anorak, Clark rushes into print, not once, but twice with this blurring of fact with fiction. Because of Clark's work, 'Jimmy' is turned into 'Jimmy Ross', even though that makes no sense at all. Ian Cowper Ross' father is named Charles Edward Ross. To get around that, Paul Rusling claimed that the friends of Charles Edward Ross always called him 'Jimmy', because it was his nickname. Of course Rusling had to invent some excuse for this really silly name, and that was the best that he could invent on short notice.
What makes even less sense is when the anoraks read this fake story and identified Ian Cowper Ross' father on 'Wikipedia' as being "Carl "Jimmy" Ross of Ross Foods". As of the date of this writing (shown above), that is what it still says on 'Wikipedia', which is why that web site is one of the most unreliable sources of information on the Internet. 'Wikipedia' spreads fake information - accompanied by references citing fake information!
For the record, we have already uncovered the true genealogy of Ian Cowper Ross. We know all about his family and where they lived and what his father did for a living: he sold dry-cleaning franchises. He did not sell frozen food, wet fish or car telephones as many anoraks have now claimed.
That is not the only nonsense that has been published by 'Wikipedia' about the origins of the 1964-1967 'Radio Caroline'. It also claims the following: "Financial backing for the venture came from six investors, including John Sheffield, chairman of Norcross, Carl "Jimmy" Ross of Ross Foods, and Jocelyn Stevens of Queen magazine, with which Radio Caroline shared its first office."
Not only is the identity of Ian Cowper Ross' father completely in error in this 'Wikipedia' nonsense, but the link to John Sheffield also reveals that the writer did not even bother to cite the correct name of Sheffield's company. If the final reference to Jocelyn Stevens sharing his office with 'Radio Caroline' is false, and it is, then the next 'Wikipedia' sentence becomes totally ludicrous, even though it was used by Stephen Christoper Moore in his feature story that was spread all over the USA in its Sunday newspapers.
This is what 'Wikipedia' still claims, even though a lot of anoraks shudder when they read it because they know it is in error: "O'Rahilly named the station after Caroline Kennedy, daughter of U.S. president John F. Kennedy. On a fund-raising trip to the U.S., O'Rahilly reportedly saw a Life magazine photograph of Kennedy and his children in the Oval Office that served as the inspiration for the name 'Caroline Radio'."
But when readers of 'Wikipedia' turn from that entry under 'Radio Caroline' to one identified as 'Queen (magazine)', they then read: "In the late 1950s, under the editorship of Beatrix Miller, it was restyled to serve a younger readership that was defined by Miller in a style-sheet. .... Beatrix Miller's targeted reader .... was named 'Caroline' .... Stevens helped to finance a pirate radio ship project that was also named Caroline with the initial intention of extending the targeted reader as the targeted listener. When Radio Caroline first went on the air (from a ship that was also renamed Caroline), it operated from the editorial offices of Queen."
As a consequence of this incestuous ambiguity that blurs the line between fact and fiction, BBC-TV and 'Wikipedia' are now partners in the fraudulent ambitions of Malcom Smith who is claiming that the fiction of Ian Cowper Ross is indeed fact as proven by the reporting of both BBC-TV and 'Wikipedia'.
However, the bottom line is this:
Paul Alexander Rusling stole our work to aid Malcolm Smith in his fraudulent ventures for which he now claims protection under the embrace of the British Broadcasting Corporation; UK Companies House; and the UK Charity registry in England.
But no matter how loud the crooks scream that fiction is fact and that fraud is okay because of official sanction, we reply that "you must remember this .... It's still the same old story, A fight for love and glory, A case of do or die ...." and while "The world will always welcome lovers, As time goes by ...." the world will eventually turn on those who lie, cheat and steal.
"Dear little anoraks, don't you cry,
The truth will set you free,
Bye and bye."
It is no secret that we despise the idiotic, heads-in-the-sand rantings of anoraks who support the totally discredited and fictitious claims made about "Jimmy Ross"; Ronan O'Rahilly and the 1964 creation of 'Radio Caroline'. We have the same reaction to the nonsense spewed out by the self-gratifying publishing and broadcasting activities of Paul Alexander Rusling and his 'yes-he-is-but-no-he-isn't' friend of Malcolm Smith who pretends to be Peter Moore, who pretends that his rusting hulk and tin-pot radio station are somehow connected to the creation in 1964 of 'Radio Caroline'. But for the sane out there who are taking note of our investigation, here is part two (with more to follow), of the theme we began yesterday concerning the true identity of Stephen Christoper Moore ....
CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO READ THE FINE PRINT
As the fine print reveals, Stephen's mother Nancy married a British citizen, which is how Stephen gained his right to live and work in the United Kingdom, even though he was born and lived in the USA until he was eight years of age.
Although others claim that little is known about Stephen's life after his first arrival in the UK during 1948, the fact that the anorak fake story about 'Radio Caroline' has to jump to 1964 as though Stephen is really some sort of Jack-in-the-Box who mysteriously 'appears' on the scene, is total rubbish. We are now searching for any documentation revealing his actual life prior to the year 1964 when his truncated name became associated with 'Radio Caroline'.
However, it was in 1964 that the fake anorak story began as a means of misdirecting everyone away from the true story. It is a very complicated story involving a major manufacturer of electronics products; newspaper and print interests; persons interested in challenging the legal fundamental issues underpinning the then future North Sea Oil and Gas industry, as well as independent producers of drama and recorded music.
The 'Georgie Fame' story is the silliest fake of all, since Georgie Fame already had an LP pressed, produced and for sale by the huge EMI conglomerate. Equally silly is the childish 'Caroline Kennedy' myth, which was plastered all over America by Stephen Christopher Moore, as a feature story inserted into its major Sunday newspapers with Stephen Christopher Moore's picture on top of it!
But the real anorak scam began in 1990, because that is when the affluent and influential mother-in-law of Ian Cowper Ross published his novel and launched it from her Harley Street address in the pages of 'Tatler' magazine! Up until that point in time, very few publications had appeared in print to explain the 1964 origins of 'Radio Caroline', and all of them concealed the real story!
But after 1990, the floodgates opened to books, magazines and even the infamous 1991 BBC-TV documentary in which Ian Cowper Ross implied that his novel of 1990, is really a disguised version of what really happened. However, the first place to tell the real story about the true origins of 'Radio Caroline' is right here, and it has come to you - free of charge - as a public service in the public interest.
If you paid anorak fraudsters any money for their fake renditions: demand an immediate refund.
*Chris Moore was a club dj who became the "radio programme planner" of 'Radio Caroline'. Now if you believe the nonsense in the press, then you believe that 'Radio Caroline' of 1964 was pushing a young Hammond organ player named Georgie Fame. But you would be wrong in your belief, because Georgie already had an LP on the EMI label before 'Radio Caroline' first hit the airwaves.
Let's begin at the beginning by asking - who was Chris Moore?
His full name is Stephen Christoper Moore, and before the 'Radio Caroline' tag was hung around his neck, he was simply Steve Moore. Then, when he came to England from New York aboard the liner 'Queen Elizabeth' on May 19, 1948*, he was listed as Stephen Moore in the company of Nancy Moore who is his mother. At birth his surname was recorded as Moore, and his first names as Stephen Christopher.
Stephen was 8 and Nancy was 28.
There is an admitted air of mystery about the way in which Chris Moore just plopped on to the scene in London in 1964 after teaming up with a renegade young man named Ian Cowper Ross. Ian had adopted a reckless lifestyle habit of crashing vehicles into objects and other vehicles. First that landed Ian in hospital and then in court. We have already torn the lid of Ian Cowper Ross and his entire family. In fact. we could write a book about them, but as it is, they will only occupy a revelatory section to disabuse the anoraks of their mythology.
But Steve Moore, who became better known as Chris Moore, was in fact not known to the anorak world at all apart from the fact that he was a club disc jockey. So who was he? We know more about the weird lifestyle he lived after the days of 'Radio Caroline', but virtually nothing about why this young American came to England.
We will now endeavor to enlighten the world.
Let's begin with 'Radio Caroline' and Steve's company, of which he was a director under the name of Christopher Moore ....
Far from being a rock 'n' roll station, 'Radio Caroline' was the extended sound of the BBC 'Housewives' Choice' record programme.
From Monday to Friday beginning at 6 a.m. until 9 a.m. you could hear 'The Early Show' playing "pop music new releases and old hits up to 5 years" mixed with "classic pop eg Standards - Sinatra, Peggy Lee, Big Bands, etc."
From 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., the lazy housewives of south-east England could eat their toast and marmalade during the 'Breakfast Club' and listen to more Frank Sinatra and Peggy Lee along with those big bands.
At 10 a.m. until 11 a.m. housewives in south-east England might care to wash their dishes, make their beds and vacuum their floors while listening to 'The Sound of Music' - which in reality meant more Frank Sinatra and Peggy Lee, and of course those big bands with a nod to other artists who performed in a similar manner and style.
At 11 a.m. 'Radio Caroline' called its programming 'Top Deck', which in reality meant more of the same kind of music with Sinatra, Lee and big bands. Of course Perry Como and others would also be included.
Then at 12 Noon until 1 p.m., south-east housewives had a 'Date with Caroline', and in addition to Sinatra, Lee, and big bands, they could also hear pop music top 50 hits as well as old hits up to 5 years-old. But, in addition "R & B, Jazz, Hip sounds eg Jimmy Smith, Booker T, Georgie Fame etc.," would also be added to the mix.
Following that exhausting range of records, from 1 p.m. until 2 p.m. it was time for 'Spin Around' with more hit records new and old and of course a rendering of Sinatra, Lee and the big bands.
Filling in that time before the kids came in from school. it was time for 'Sound Track' which involved listening to "Sound Tracks eg Film & Stage shows, Themes, Pop music from films etc." - not forgetting more Sinatra, Lee and the big bands, of course. That would occupy the time of mothers from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m.
With the rowdy youngsters back home, it was time from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. for 'The Big Line Up' featuring "pop music eg Top 50 new releases and old hits up to 5 years", and "R & B, Jazz, Hip sounds eg Jimmy Smith, Booker T, Georgie Fame etc."
By now hubby was also home and so everyone could begin writing postcard requests from 6 p.m. until 7 p.m. to be played at a future date on 'Caroline Club Requests'. This is when the family could all enjoy the hits, new and old, along with Sinatra, Lee and the big bands.
Then at 7 p.m. until 9 p.m., the family could hear 'Down Beat' featuring more hits new and old and Sinatra, Lee and big bands, before turning off 'Radio Caroline' and switching on the telly.
But, for the night owls, 'Radio Caroline' came back on the air at Midnight with "R & B, Jazz, Hip sounds eg Jimmy Smith, Booker T, Georgie Fame etc.", plus hits new and old and of course Sinatra, Lee and the big bands during 'The Late Late Show' which led to another sign-off at 3 a.m. until 6 a.m. the next day.
This was the work product of Christopher Moore, the Program Director for 'Radio Caroline', and Chris thought that he had a steady job with 'Radio Caroline', but he was rudely disappointed as this news item (to the right) reveals. Chris did not know who he was working for and few knew that his first name is Stephen!
*Originally misprinted as '1949', but the ship's manifest shows a blurred 1948.
