Go to our companion Blog to read why Greta could have been 'inspired' by 'Wonderful Radio London'; 'Radio City'; 'Radio 390'; 'Radio 270'; 'Radio Scotland' or even 'Radio Caroline North' ....
Now let us see what happens after the text above was amended to read thus:
Radio Caroline is the name of a station that broadcast from 1964 to 1967. However, several unrelated radio stations, all with controversial background histories, and not all of them tied to one geographical location, organization or audience have subsequently used this name.
From currently available and authenticated documentary evidence, the originator and first user of this name for a radio station call sign was Jocelyn Stevens of Stevens Press Ltd., a firm registered in London, England under the laws of the United Kingdom. Stevens was a printer and publisher of several titles including a fashion magazine called 'Queen'. His editor, prior to Radio Caroline going on the air was Beatrix Miller who had been using the eponymous name for many years within her own style sheet to describe the typical reader of Stevens' fashion magazine called 'Queen'. Beatrix Miller resigned when Stevens announced his decision to become involved with an offshore commercial radio station based upon a former Danish ferry boat anchored off southeast England just outside UK Territorial Waters. This was before Radio Caroline first came on the air, but on the same day that a sales company representing the station was registered in the Republic of Ireland outside British jurisdiction.
This station first began test transmissions on February 27, 1964, and shortly before a new British law called Marine Offences Act came into effect at midnight on August 14, 1967 and made it illegal for UK citizens to be involved with it, Jocelyn Stevens severed his relationship with the station which was not controlled by a company of that name. The British Board of Trade attempted to discover what the name and location of its operating company was, without success. A verifiable record of factual events following August 14, 1967 are still drowning in a sea of contradictory press reports.
Because the radio station was operating outside of the laws of the United Kingdom, Stevens did not register a British company by the name of Radio Caroline Ltd in the United Kingdom, or in any other country where his ownership could be legally traced back to him. Instead, Jocelyn Stevens employed a well-know British public relations firm to create a fake ownership and operating history of the radio station. One such myth was that the original Radio Caroline had been "founded in 1964 by Ronan O'Rahilly and George Drummond  initially to circumvent the record companies' control of popular music broadcasting in the United Kingdom and the BBC's radio broadcasting monopoly." Over the years after 1967, many different radio stations have broadcast under the call sign of Radio Caroline. They are not related to the original venture headed by Jocelyn Stevens.
Well, lookee here, that didn't take long for the anorak trolls to leap into action, did it? They have already deleted the above text and replaced it with the original nonsense text. This is what is on their history of edits page:
JUST LOOK AT GHMYRTLE'S WIKIPEDIA QUALIFICATIONS .... LOTS OF 'BADGES' AND NO COMMON SENSE!
On Wikipedia for 15 years, over 119,000 edits!
Are they all as stupid as the one about Radio Caroline?
This is why Wikipedia is such a waste of time and so misleading as an instrument of educational knowledge. It is also the reason why we want to read what Paul Rusling is going to release on to the market within the next few hours. Is it going to be his original nonsense incorporating intellectual theft from us and then twisted to fit his own crazy and fictitious (Wikipedia influenced) style, or is he going to steal more from us to amend some of his original and glaring errors? We shall soon find out. That is why we want to wait and see what he does next before releasing more original research. As for Wikipedia we will keep a distant eye upon it but let the anorak fools play its game of replacing fact with original fiction. Both Rusling and Wikipedia will give us a good bench mark for asserting the 'us' versus 'them' approach that we have.
Like most spineless and stupid anoraks we received this nameless challenge not to post the following comments. What the writer does not seem to understand is that over and over and over again in the past we have done precisely what 'it' suggests with other editors of Wikipedia pages, and over and over and over again they have ALL deleted the truth and preserved a LIE. So, here is the latest nameless anorak challenge which makes us wonder why this person does not identify themself, and why they do not follow-through on their own advice?
Posted by You won't publish this on October 30, 2021, 6:58 am, in reply to "Re: Ronan O'Rahilly and 'Radio Caroline'"
Why not discuss your Wikipedia revision as invited instead of attacking the editor who doesn't accept your submission at face value? Why would you expect him to do so? Look at it from his point of view. It is contrary to all published information, so you need to justify it. Can't be bothered and would rather just rant about it, I guess.
We asked a question about buyers and dates and guess what? The noisy anoraks all remained quiet. For them it was back to the pros and cons of Ronan O'Rahilly's wonders as a con man and the joys of 'Loving Awareness'. We await delivery of Paul Rusling's latest 'bible' to see whether he is going to surprise with more theft of intellectual property, or whether he will stick with what he has.
On December 30, 1963, the former DFDS ferry named Fredericia was sold to Cross Channel Container Services Limited of Greenore, Ireland, and then taken from Denmark to the Wijsmuller shipyard at Rotterdam, Holland.
On January 8, 1964, the mv Fredericia was renamed Iseult. It is to become both a ferry and cargo ship operating between southern Ireland and northern England on behalf of Weatherwell Ltd of Ireland.
On February 13, 1964, the former Fredericia left Rotterdam for Greenore in the Republic of Ireland.
This is a challenge to Ray Clark and Paul Rusling who have both engaged in promoting the mythological story of Ronan O'Rahilly and a man named 'Jimmy':
Do you two individuals have any other source of documentation for your claims about a man named 'Jimmy', sans surname, other than Ian Cowper Ross and his 1990 novel called 'Rocking the Boat', and the subsequent appearance by Ian Cowper Ross on a 1991 BBC television program?
We await with interest our copy of the latest updated novel by Paul Alexander Rusling called 'The Radio Caroline bible' in which his earlier version retold the same story as told by Ian Cowper Ross in his 1990 work of fiction.
It is is amusing to see many of the anorak 'ducks' who are being lined-up by Rusling to buy an updated version of his same-old mythology. We remain outside of this anorak circle and wait to enjoy the spectacle of the anoraks self-drowning despair - once they realize that they have all been conned yet again by Rusling who is using a dead man named Ronan O'Rahilly, and his script writer named Ian Cowper Ross, who has led a rather more interesting life after 'Caroline' than Paul Alexander Rusling is leading right now imagining a past that never happened. As for good old Hans, well we don't know what is going on in his head after making that ridiculous statement. According to Rusling, it was Hans who promoted the fake idea that Mervyn Hagger was part of this nonsense!
Under ordinary circumstances that sale would be part of a chain of custody to be accepted as fact, and back in 1963, there was no reason for anyone to question the veracity of this sale. But in 2021 there are many people who choose to ignore this transaction and pretend that it just isn't true. Many do so subconsciously because they may be unaware of the DFDS transaction, and those who do know of the DFDS sale, reject it by blotting out its existence so that they are not confronted by a conundrum.
This process of rejection comes from an almost fanatical religious belief founded upon an alternative explanation which is known to be fiction. It becomes a story that has turned the now deceased Ronan O'Rahilly into a 'pirate radio' messiah, not that Ronan O'Rahilly ever did anything worthwhile, except in the early days when he was paid to front for people like Jocelyn Stevens.
Ray Clark and Paul Rusling have both created books which rely upon the mythology associated with the name of Ronan O'Rahilly. But O'Rahilly needed help to extrapolate a myth and to build his own quasi-religious following while he was alive. Now there seems to exist a cult which worships his very name, as though he was born to be some sort of radio saint, although even his followers acknowledge that he was a man with many personal faults whose main claim to fame was the procuring of money from other people.
Without admitting the obvious foundation of their own storylines, because both Clark and Rusling were too young to have been of the age where they hand first-hand participatory knowledge of what Ronan O'Rahilly was up to, and consequently both Clark and Rusling turn for substance to this book:
As you can see, 'Rocking the Boat' was launched as a novel with a lot of fanfare back in 1990, but in the following year (1991), the author appeared on BBC-TV where he inferred that what he had written as fiction, was in fact a recital of events that had actually taken place. But here again, the story as told by Ian Cowper Ross as the 'true story', lacked any proof that it was a true story. Worse still, at no point during the BBC-TV 1991 documentary did Ian Cowper Ross actually say that his 1990 novel was in fact a true story.
But by a constant retelling of the story in the Ross book, as though it is a true compilation of biographical events, this story has become fixed in the minds of many as being a true story. However, there is absolutely no connection between the real story the story told in the book written by Ian Cowper Ross. The names Ronan O'Rahilly and Ian Cowper Ross do not appear in the text of his book.
The name of 'Ian Ross' does appear in the book as its author, but only in an abbreviated format.
The names of Ronan O'Rahilly and Ian Cowper Ross are not mentioned in the Ross book, because the words in his book relate to fictitious characters and a fanciful storyline. Yet the Clark and Rusling narratives all rest upon that phantom drive to Hindhead by Ronan O'Rahilly so that he could hit-up a man named 'Jimmy', for money. But the book makes no mention of Ronan O'Rahilly, and the fictitious character who is named both 'Jim' and 'Jimmy' in the book, has the surname of Shaw.
So there is a clash of contents as recited by Clark and Rusling with regards to the specific transaction as narrated in that book, and the book itself. Clark and Rusling connected dots that do not exist in the book, in other words Clark and Rusling invented a new story.
There is also a clash between the contents of the book which is fiction, and the Clark-Rusling version which is also fiction, but a fiction based upon the fiction that their version is in the book - which is fiction. Neither Clark nor Rusling were present at that supposed meeting with 'Jimmy' and so their only source is Ian Cowper Ross who wrote a book of fiction in 1990, and then, in 1991, without actually claiming that his novel of 1990 is really his own autobiographical account, Ian Cowper Ross recited a new version on BBC-TV that sounds like the novel, but which deviates from the fiction in the book, because Ian Cowper Ross claims that his TV version is autobiographical.
How did Ian Cowper Ross manage to pull-off that bait-and-switch trick? Simply by never referring to the novel on television and by never calling his father anyone but 'Daddy'. He also implied that Ronan O'Rahilly called his father 'Jimmy' but Ian Cowper Ross did not name his 'Daddy' or use his own full name on television. To discover who Ian Cowper Ross and his 'Daddy' and mother really are, we had to buy a copy of Ian's marriage certificate, since we knew from press reports where and when he go married, and the marriage certificate is a legal document that contains fact, and not fiction.
This brings us to that clash with the documentation in the DFDS encyclopedia. It refers to a specific day, month and year with regards to a specific ship owned by DFDS and called 'Fredericia'. The story told by Ian Cowper Ross is vague and told in print as fiction many years after the event. His version is a novel in which the name of a ship called 'Fredericia' does not appear.
Before this analysis can continue, the reader must decide which of these two books to believe: The documentary encyclopedia, or the novel about fictitious people and a fictitious ship? The answer seems to be obvious, except to anoraks. They choose to believe the work of fiction.
There can be no better example for us to cite than that of the confused mind of a person who calls himself Fred Bramley. He has repeatedly accused us of believing the work of Ian Cowper Ross, while at the same time pointing out that the Ross book is a work of fiction. In reality, we accept the DFDS encyclopedia as fact while explaining why the words uttered by both Ronan O'Rahilly and Ian Cowper Ross are fiction. Why Fred Bramley has fixated upon this idea is not clear at all, since he clearly does not accept the DFDS encyclopedia as being true, and he obviously reveres the legacy of Ronan O'Rahilly.
Tomorrow we will continue to reveal why the texts of these two books present two different and totally incompatible storylines. Not only does the DFDS account open up a chain of events for inspection, but that same chain of events goes on to contradict just about everything that the Fred Bramleys of this world think that they know, when in reality know nothing at all about the real world.
We have now added a link to our new review page regarding 'The Radio Caroline bible' . We we have also made an important correction on this new page regarding our own hypothesis concerning the two new Continental Electronics transmitters that were loaded on board the ship originally known as mv Fredericia; briefly known as mv Iseult, and then renamed mv Caroline.
Paul Rusling visited our library facility in person on two occasions under the pretext of becoming part of this research project, but instead, during the second half of 2019, he announced that he was going to self-publish a book under the title of 'The Radio Caroline bible'. Rusling was working with an individual named Malcolm Smith, an engine mechanic, who is still (as of this Blog entry), passing himself off under the name of 'Peter Moore'. He has even used that name fraudulently on official UK government documents, and on at least one occasion the names of Malcolm Smith and 'Peter Moore' both appear as if they are two separate and real people.
Smith/Moore applied for and received, a UK broadcasting license for a new, but very small community radio station called 'Caroline'. Paul Rusling became instrumental in spreading the fraudulent mythology that Smith/Moore's 'Radio Caroline' is the lineal descendant in interest of the same people who in 1964, originally created the real Radio Caroline. This is the mythology that we are now unravelling for the first time, anywhere, and we are doing so free of charge.
Please visit 'The Radio Caroline bible' page to see how Rusling has now been caught-out red-handed by stealing our hypothesis which was a working part of this research project. However, we have now discarded our own theory as being untrue! Unfortunately for Paul Rusling, our own working hypothesis now discarded, was part of our research work that he took and incorporated as fact within his book that he has been selling to support the Smith/Moore venture which he calls 'Radio Caroline'.
Details will appear at 'The Radio Caroline bible' soon after the publication of this update.
We will continue to reveal what others could have done, but all failed to do, in methodically finding snippets of factual proof that are available and which can be cross-checked, in order to build the first ever authentic timeline about the origins of Radio Caroline. Unlike the charlatans and con men who self-publish fraudulent books that they claim is the 'real' or the 'true' story of Radio Caroline, this presentation is authentic and conforms to true investigatory standards, and it is FREE OF CHARGE for you to read and enjoy. We will keep adding to it piece by piece - until we have revealed the actual story of Radio Caroline - as far as it can be documented. We are NOT relying upon the hearsay of other people and we will only use testimony that can be cross-checked. Undoubtedly some minor details will be difficult to establish, but the actual framework can be built and demonstrated to be true and authentic. Where new information comes to our attention that contradicts our presentation we will perform further investigation, and if any information is found to be incorrect, it will be corrected and any mistakes will be acknowledged!
This information comes from the authoritative DFDS encyclopedia. This decommissioned Danish ferry is not taken to Ireland by its new owners, but to the Netherlands where it is tied-up alongside a Wijsmuller facility. Why?
The only source of research about this activity is the project now known as 'The Girl Who Never Was', and the information that Paul Rusling has was STOLEN from this project - before our research was completed. As a result, Paul Rusling only had part of the information which he then tried to force into his own mythological storyline about the now deceased Ronan O'Rahilly. But if Ronan O'Rahilly knew the real story he never told anyone, especially Paul Rusling.
We think that O'Rahilly knew part of the real story, but because he was paid to lie and deceive on behalf of Jocelyn Stevens who was directing him, it was not in his interest to tell the truth. O'Rahilly Senior (his father) was to become a financial beneficiary of the scheme fronted by Jocelyn Stevens on behalf of a consortium, and therefore it was in his financial interests to also keep quiet about what he knew.
