It is now coming to light that merely mentioning 'Radio Caroline' and the occupation of 6 Chesterfield Gardens from 1964 to 1967, is part of a deceitful game of smoke and mirrors that conceals the true identity of what 'Radio Caroline' really was. This is a concealed story that no one has ever addressed before, but it is the story that unravels the real and true explanation of what 'Radio Caroline' was during those years of its brief existence before it was killed off for all time on August 14, 1967.
We are now dissecting the entire time frame between 1964 and 1967, and we have begun to uncover an amazing history that also shines a light on the true story, the real story, and not the fake story claimed to be real and true, about the origin and make-up of 'Radio Caroline'.
There are three main phases, and they all relate in this sequence, to 6 Chesterfield Gardens.
The first one begins in 1960 with the take-over of the Indestructible Paint Company Limited whose headquarters had been at 6 Chesterfield Gardens. The premises next door were occupied by the 21 Club, and it was owned by the same group of people who also owned the club known as Churchills on New Bond Street.
It was after Indestructible Paint Company Limited vacated 6 Chesterfield Gardens that the owners of 8 Chesterfield Gardens (21 Club), came up with an ambitious plan for its own premises, plus two others adjoining it. That would include 6 Chesterfield Gardens.
But there was a hitch.
This vision for the three properties required planning permission, and at the time (1962) it was thought that the owners of 8 Chesterfield Gardens were unlikely that they would get it.
What exactly transpired between 1962 and 1964 we are now in the process of documenting, but it suggests that the owners of 8 Chesterfield Gardens bought 6 Chesterfield Gardens in anticipation of their expansion plans. Because if they hadn't, there was no way they would have drawn the attention of the press to their modification of a property they did not own.
If the owners of the unoccupied former home of the Indestructible Paint Company Ltd thought that 6 Chesterfield Gardens was suddenly going to shoot up in value, they would have known that its selling price would also increase.
But the owners of the 21 Club were the kind of shrewd wheeler-dealers who did not suffer fools lightly, and it suggests that they had quietly bought 6 Chesterfield Gardens when no one else wanted it.
Why is this important?
Because whoever 'Radio Caroline' was (in terms of the banking people using 'Radio Caroline' as a blanket name), they would be dealing with the owners of the 21 Club. The work resume of Dick Morecraft as Maintenance Man, suggests that this is exactly what happened!
Next come the events of December 1965, because that is when it has been stated that Project Atlanta Ltd was taken over by Planet Productions Limited, even though the financial story behind both companies does not support such a scenario. But in 1966, a number of additional people began moving into 6 Chesterfield Gardens, and some of them had connections to another property at another address that was also referred to as 'Caroline House'.
Attached to these new tenants (there were several), was a man of money whose last name was 'Shaw'.
If you think you have heard that name before, you have: in Ian Cowper Ross' 1990 novel which refers to a 'Jim Shaw' who did not exist! But in 1991, on BBC-TV, Ian Cowper Ross claimed that 'Jim Shaw' was his "Daddy", whose real name was Charles Edward Ross.
Now steps into that mire a fool who is also an intellectual thief, and his name is Paul Alexander Rusling. Without any proof whatsoever, Rusling claimed in his 'bible', that the friends of Charles Edward Ross always called him 'Jimmy'. From that nonsense came the phantom character of 'Jimmy Ross'.
But now we have stumbled across a real money man with ties to 6 Chesterfield Gardens who was not in any way linked biologically or otherwise to Ian Cowper Ross, and whose first name was neither 'Jim' nor 'Jimmy', but whose surname is Shaw. The true identity of this Mr Shaw in relation to events at 6 Chesterfield Gardens, is now being documented by us! We already know a lot about this person and soon, you will too!
This is the first hint of why Ian Cowper Ross invented the name of 'Paul Shaw' for himself in his 1990 novel.
But there is also a third phase involving 6 Chesterfield Gardens and it is about its occupation following the midnight hour on August 14, 1967, when it was business as usual for some of the occupants, and we don't mean the photographer at the very top of the building! This also points to the fact that reading the word 'radio' into the front of 'Caroline House', is a mistake that leads to a trap created by a bogus recital about the existence of 'Radio Caroline' from 1964 to 1967, after which date it was killed off for all time.
