Contrary to the views of your handful of supporters, we are not in competition with you because there is no way to counter the totally false rubbish on your 'Radio Caroline' web site, and that is rubbish which you wrote and have also spread on BBC-TV shows such as 'Antiques Road Trip'.
There is make believe fantasy and then there is fraudster conmanship which you engage in, with the help of your friend Paul Rusling. You two walk hand in the pockets of gullible fools who fork out money to support not just a myth, but to swindle charities and individual supporters.
Yes, those are strong words that are supported by your own web site - which was written by you and managed by you and supported by Paul Rusling.
As of February 19, 2023 at 12:51 PM your time, this is what your own web site says about Ronan O'Rahilly and 'Radio Caroline' (a station which is totally unrelated to your own fraudulent operation):
"He soon became aware that quite separately an Australian businessman Alan Crawford had also identified the potential of marine broadcasting to the UK. Ronan befriended him. Crawford was later to allege that O'Rahilly used his own feasibility studies to further his own plans. Ronan claims that this is absolutely not the case and that the Caroline project was well advanced before he even became aware of Crawford and his parallel business intentions. He also insists Crawford's 'Project Atlanta' ran out of funding and was rescued by his own company. On a fund raising trip to the USA he was captivated by a photograph in Life magazine showing president John F. Kennedy's daughter Caroline playing in the Oval Office of the White House and disrupting the serious business of government. This was exactly the image he wanted for his station. The name had to be Radio Caroline."
We are not competing with a swindle, such as your 'Radio Caroline' web site. We are quietly publishing for academia and for genuine radio historians. A compendium of much of our previously published work is currently in production.
