Then follows the same post by Malcolm Smith that appeared on the Board that Garry Stevens labeled as the Board of Idiots; the Joke Board, and the religious home of the Church of Caroline cult. The original was posted by Malcolm Smith as follows ....

So now we know that Garry Stevens is united with Malcolm Smith.
This makes things so much easier for us.
There is now a line in sand: a "them" on one side, and "us" on the other side.
On the Stevens/Smith side is lying, cheating, stealing.
On our side is investigative reporting, admission when we are wrong, and a foundational belief in honesty,
We ask nothing from anyone who has read our material on this Blog, whereas Stevens/Smith use Internet Forums to steal from the public while deceiving them.
Therefore, since Stevens and Smith have made their own positions clear, we are now drawing a line in the sand to say that we are now no longer bound to secrecy about the previous actions of Stevens, or Smith.
However, while our research continues into the original cover-up surrounding Radio Caroline (1964-1967), the actions of Stevens and Smith are of absolutely no interest to this undertaking, except in as much where their actions and their words and those of their supporters, contradict or attempt to conceal the true story.

Thank you for paying again to keep the ads away and it’s a very kind gesture and truly appreciated but please don’t feel like you need to do anything like that because you so truly do not!
I welcome your posts greatly because they are a refreshing change from all the Church of Caroline posts and the PM yes men who can’t see beyond saying how much they adore him and his plastic radio station.
You bring change, fact, intelligence, true info and you won’t let them beet you and I admire those qualities in you!
So you see you bring more than enough to the board without your kind gesture you so truly do not need to do that mate. Further more I am glad you are on the team so if anything it’s me that owes you.
All of that aside you know the funny part to all of this is there isn’t but one of them that won’t buy a copy of your book I know it, they know it, and you should too.
So keep on giving it to them its fact interesting and refreshing and coming from an intelligent guy who knows the true score, good on you mate. Period.
Very best Regard
Typos belong to Garry.
It's not just Ronan O'Rahilly who lied with the help of Ian Cowper Ross, or Paul Alexander Rusling who lied and stole intellectual property from us, but these squabbling and two-faced anoraks are denounced by each other. They leave their evidence in plain view and instead of trying to be sensible and reaching an accord with us, they become more and more stupid. Here is a prime example of how you just can't trust these people:

The above is the new set of login details tried them here at my end and they are working fine! Please get back to me and let me know.
In yesterday's Blog we gave you a very brief overview of how we began airing programs in the UK over Norman Nelson's land-based Short Wave radio station, but we only touched upon the transition period that provided the foundation for this present research project.
While we will include more details in our new and forthcoming series of part-publications about broadcasting, in view of the misinformation already in circulation, it becomes necessary for us to explain a few essential differences in the reporting of current affairs taking place on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. The time period in question for us began back in the Nineteen Eighties, and the catalyst was the start of Music TeleVision (MTV) in the USA.
Although on the surface, there appears to have been a uniformity of cultural interpretations in both the UK and USA back then, there was an in fact an obfuscation of branding and it had a point of origination. Many products, services and companies seen as 'British' by consumers, and users in the British Isles, had in fact originated in North America. But their connectivity was either downplayed or intentionally disguised.
Half of the original British Broadcasting Company Limited cartel was of American origin. EMI (Electric and Musical Industries) began as an offshoot of the Radio Corporation of America (RCA), and that entity had already given birth to the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) in the USA, which had a lot of commercial interests in common with BBC Ltd. Because NBC was an offshoot of the American company called General Electric (GE), the identification chimes on NBC reflected the musical notes of G, E, and C.
While there was an international version of American company known as GE, the eponymous entity in the UK was not the same company, although some interests were shared between the two via the American GE international company. This blurring of identities became the subject of an interesting book published in 1968 called 'The American take-over of Britain'. Its authors tried to show how people in Britain could go through an entire day using American products and services without knowing that this is what they were doing.
So it was with the popular music charts in 1982. That is when MTV first came on to American TV screens. The problem was that there was a shortage of video material in the USA for MTV to work with. While British TV had led the way in promoting popular music in the UK with pioneering producers such as Jack Good, its radio output had been restricted, and this had in turn given birth to offshore radio broadcasting. (You will discover that we covered a lot of this material in depth within our academic series of articles which are on line at http://foundthreads.com).
In the UK, companies such as EMI had been supplying public venues with promotional film/video clips to sell a 'new wave' of British artists. That 'new wave' was a harking back to the 'first wave' that swirled around groups such as the Beatles, when they first burst on to the Pop charts. Now, the British Pop charts were featuring groups that would not be heard in America for many more months, and many of these groups came with film/video clips. This was one of the cheaper foundations of MTV in the USA.
So when Don Pierson obtained an FCC radio license for KVMX-FM whose studio was situated at the bottom of his property on which he had his home in tiny and obscure Eastland, Texas, and because we were already working with him on a franchised publication, he asked for help with radio programming. Thus a show called 'Swinging Radio England' (SRE), which featured old PAMS jingles and old music was born on KVMX-FM at about the same time period that MTV was planning its expansion to nationwide coverage of the USA.
It was MTV in the USA that 'inspired' a switch from the oldies SRE format to the new British charts under the name of Wonderful Radio London. Don Pierson then decided to syndicate this show at the National Association of Broadcasters Convention in Las Vegas, and he went one step further by proposing to restart WRL as WRLI with a new ship station aimed at the UK. This brought Ben Toney, the local Texas man hired by Don Pierson for the original WRL as General Manager. Originally, Philip Birch was only hired to handle advertising sales.
We made contact with Ben Toney quite by chance (he had been away at sea on a non-broadcasting venture). The connection was made at a record faire by George Gimarc who programmed an AM station in Dallas that played oldies, and an FM in the same building that played 'New Wave' and punk music. Both stations were owned by the 'Dallas Morning News' daily paper. George brought us together with Ben and the WRLI project was born. Initially records were imported from England via a New Jersey distributor, but because of delays it was decided to record the programs in the UK and ship them directly to the USA for duplication and then syndication.
Now enters another person in this strange story. His name is Ben Freedman who ran a jingle company called CPMG in Buffalo, New York. Ben was also trading as 'PAMS', the Dallas jingle company which had been pushed into oblivion due to outstanding taxes. The legal status of PAMS was surrounded in law suits that tangled with other companies outside of Texas. All of this was long before the dawn of the World Wide Web and easy research by the Internet. A trade-off was arranged with Ben Freedman. We would research the legal status of PAMS for him, while he brought in his agent in Kent, England to make the new syndicated WRLI programs for airplay in the USA.
For his part, George Gimarc kicked off a four hour live show on his Dallas AM station in which the history of the British offshore stations would be told using both narration, airchecks and records. Ben Toney then began talking to several potential investors who would 'seed' the venture, and this also included Don Pierson trying to re-involve Tom Danaher. But Danaher had fallen out with Pierson over the SRE debacle of 1966-67 in the UK.
To promote the syndicated hour-long weekly show, time was bought on XERF in Mexico. That station had come back into the news when an engineer attempted to get its massive RCA transmitter back on the air. So at midnight, Texas time, a daily WRL-America chart show featuring British records was aired seven nights a week, with a local sponsor. But the engineer could not keep that transmitter on the air and so the power dropped down to that of a local US station. Its clear-channel, 'coast-to-coast and border-to-border' voice could not be heard.
It was during this time that Ben Toney became ill and the idea of reviving Radio London died. But the syndicated program was still being aired. That is when new contact was made with Jonathan Marks at Radio Netherlands and the idea of morphing the 'new wave' turned into the 'First Wave of the Four Freedoms'. By extension, this idea emerged out of a feature within George Gimarc's 'Rock and Roll Alternative' show, into a new kind of music and commentary program wrapped inside a music show that was all intended to be aired as a single sign-on, sign-off transmission called 4FWS. It was recorded in Texas and then sent to independent stations as far afield as KIWI-SW in New Zealand, and a host of other stations in Europe and the British Isles, and that included Radio East Coast Commercial.
Our fledgling broadcasting group then began to make television documentaries for a companion 4FTN (Four Freedoms Television Network on local US cable systems with Genie Baskir. In fact it was Genie was to have become the original voice of the syndicated radio show, until the practicality of obtaining records, and the involvement of Ben Freedman caused us to switch to his UK associate.
Meanwhile, while our research to create program material continued, and Don Pierson had also brought in Eric Gilder who was also researching the origins of British broadcasting for a university thesis. It was then that we began to focus on one central question: Why can you play rock 'n' roll all day on the radio in the USA, but not in the UK? ('Needle Time' was still a factor back then.)
The 4FWS broadcasts, which we previously explained are still available to hear, and the latter series of academic articles which directly answered our own research question, then began the long trail that eventually led to the creation of this Blog.
In this same time period, aging anoraks eventually joined forces with a car mechanic, and together they have come to worship the now rusting hulk of a defunct radio ship. These lost souls pretend that they are at sea playing records, and they fondly take and show pictures of each other doing so.
Somehow they imagine that doing what any other licensed radio station can do is akin to a cause once branded as 'free radio'. But that term once meant free to listen to, as opposed to paid listening with a government license. Today these hobby pensioners playing within the confines of their own British Crown licensed station they call 'Radio Caroline', are content to snarl at each other, because all forms of educational research into British broadcasting is something that is beyond their disintegrating mental capacity to comprehend.
Consequently we have become their primary target of dribbling hatred, while they unknowingly have become victims of self-publishing vultures like Paul Rusling. He sees us as a source to steal from and the anorak pensioners as merely carcasses holding coins that can be picked lose for his own self-indulgent spending. Our researched information is free to these anorak pensioners, while Rusling throws anything on to his print-on-demand pages and then laughs at the stupidity of these dying embers of humanity who buy and read them.
No doubt the feeble minds in that anorak world will be told what this Blog says and some may even come over to look for typos. But intelligent feedback? There will be none, because the anoraks lack the intelligence to enter into any form of intelligent conversation. They are mental captives of the very British Crown that they still think they are rebelling against.
Yesterday (6/10/2021, 18:40:35) an individual who is too ashamed to identify himself, and who hides under the code of 'm0lsx' - posted the following misinformation about our friend known Neal West. He did so on one of the two anorak forums that worship the UK Crown's fully licensed land-based station called Radio Caroline, and which is operated by a car mechanic named Malcolm Smith.
This character is hiding behind the name 'm0lsx', and like other anoraks of this ilk, he reads our Blogs but does so in order to find typos (which we admit to making), and then draws attention to them in order to divert attention away from the substance of our Blogs. His actions reveal these anoraks to be nothing more than fraudsters, and their fully licensed, and tiny UK radio station as nothing more than a total joke - on them!
So 'm0lsx' delved back into our beginning in the Nineteen Eighties. That was when our research organization emerged from Don Pierson's idea of reviving his Nineteen Sixties offshore station that became known as 'Wonderful Radio London', or in brief, WRLI.
There were three parts to WRLI.
The first involved daily broadcasting over XERF-AM, the super-power 'border-blaster' in Mexico which was located just across the Texas border at Del Rio. You can hear that first and second broadcast that introduced the shows to follow, by clicking here. I was in the studio that night with Ben Toney who was the General Manager of WRLI, and you can hear those broadcasts by clicking here. The Top 40 shows were recorded in Kent by Chris Elliot. (He later took our documents, like Paul Rusling after him, in order to publish his book with the help of Ray Anderson.)
There was a second part to WRLI that involved a weekly show heard on a number of stations which included Don Pierson's KVMX-FM in Eastland, Texas, and KXOL-AM in Fort Worth, Texas.
Neal West (his radio name), lived in Birmingham, England and he took an interest in the WRLI programs and he arranged for his friend Norman Nelson to transmit copies of the programs recorded in Kent, over his shortwave station called 'Radio East Coast Commercial. How he got the tapes we do not know.
But then the WRLI project ground to a halt and after consulting Jonathan Marks of Media Network, Radio Netherlands, we decided to form an alternative programming service based upon media development. Jonathan thought that because of the political content of our proposed shows, the anoraks who were operating unlicensed land-based 'pirate' stations would not carry them. Our research project took off when Don Pierson gave us his legal and financial files behind the creation of Radio London; Radio England and Britain Radio. We even interviewed Don on tape because Steve England with help of Johnnie Walker had recorded a bogus show mocking Don. We played that tape to Don and made our own broadcast. Steve England then made a second edition of his tape which he was selling for his own profit.
Our research organization was built around massive input from a news clipping service that was begun and run by Neal West in Birmingham. He then mailed these cuttings to Texas every week. Neil also helped to build our own network of 'pirate' stations which extended from New Zealand to the continent of Europe, and of course the British Isles. That is how we got on to Norman Nelson's RECC.
Our mail response came mainly from listeners behind the Communist Iron Curtain. They were from all over East Germany; Poland and even the USSR. Those listeners understood what we were doing and what we were saying, even though the program was in English. We know this because while many wrote on postcards, others wrote many pages of information in their letters. They were very supportive, but we had to find our own financial methods to finance this operation.
Ironically, we later learned via a documentary shown on British television, that the UK Foreign Office had a secret department which was doing the same thing. When George Saunders, a real Radio Caroline engineer from 1964 to 1966, learned that we actually read listener's letters on the air, he was furious. The UK Secret Service interests went to great lengths to hide the identity of listeners who wrote to them. But our listeners never told us to conceal anything, and so we did not. George was recruited by the UK Foreign Office - after he signed the Official Secrets Act, and that document still makes him nervous to this day.
Right after the mv Mi Amigo went aground in 1966, the Foreign Office British broadcasting service recruited him to operate a sort-of British government 'pirate' political station beamed from a neighboring African country, into Ian Smith's rebel Rhodesia. That station flopped, and George came back to the UK. The 'friends' of the Foreign Office then used that same Continental Electronics transmitter that had been a part of the failed Rhodesian operation, it after it was plugged back in, that same unit was used to jam the offshore station called 'Radio Northsea International'.
We should add that George Saunders was indeed a government man who had been hired by John Gilman who reported to Alfred Thomas, both of whom had retired from a lifetime of UK WWII secret work and careers with the BBC. Then Pye recruited them and Thomas got involved with all of the main offshore pirate stations prior to Radio Caroline. (The real station 1964-196,7.)
Our own enterprise obviously never closed down and went away. It just changed its approach and began documenting everything for publication in academic journals. Now we have tweaked our approach once again and we are beginning preparations to publish for a wider and more general reader.
However, we indeed owe a lot to the help that Neal West provided us, and so we are not very pleased with the remarks by this anorak calling himself 'm0lsx'. This miserable specifin is trying to turn the legacy of Neal West against us, when in fact without Neal's help we could not have continued to slowly build, and we have done it all without asking the public for any money!
On the other hand, the anoraks not only beg for money, but they also sell merchandise that they have stolen from us. A word of advice. We have been building a library, and although some have tried to stop our progress, we are smart enough not to keep our documents all in the same location, and so when someone comes along like this 'm0lsx', we research into our archives and retrieve the documentation that proves that they are liars.
You can still hear some of those 4FWS broadcasts because they are still available on line. Go to the linked logo above, and click the box below to hear Jonathan Marks tell one of his listeners how RECC came to be broadcasting that WRLI program. The listener should have known better, because on an earlier show Jonathan Marks told another listener that WRLI was a genuine venture.
Clearly we are not at all happy with the dishonesty reflected in the so-called 'history' of the British Broadcasting Corporation, because it is more political than academic. But now, in the light of the new chapter of opposition to our work which is wrapped in a fake covering calling itself 'Radio Caroline', it has become necessary to state the obvious: Malcolm Smith's so-called 'Radio Caroline' is but a junior part of the same distorted story of British broadcasting itself, because it is a fully licensed product of the British Parliament operating on behalf of the British Crown. We will have more on this tomorrow.
So Paul Rusling, the "radio consultant", is today trying to tell everyone on the Garry Stevens Board that he is fed-up with people misunderstanding what he is saying, writing and doing.
Oh, we don't think so!
Today, just as October 5, 2021 was breaking on Garry Stevens' clock, Paul Rusling wrote: "Some people are too keen on jumping to conclusions and twisting words / comments."
He's got a nerve!
He must sing this 1965 song by 'The Animals' to himself in his bath, because its lyrics proclaim: "I got my faults just like anyone, and sometimes I lie awake, alone, regretting some foolish thing, some sinful thing I've done, I'm just a soul whose intentions are good...."
But the sad fact is that Paul Rusling is a two-faced "friend" who deals in intellectual property theft, and his intentions are not good. His actions and words are deceptive! We don't think that he is lying awake and regretting any foolish or sinful thing, because if he was, he would immediately try to make amends. But he is not.
His actions speak louder than his words!
Paul Rusling wrote that "Some people are too keen on jumping to conclusions and twisting words / comments." Now Paul Rusling is the same person who stole our research, then twisted it to fit his own fictitious narrative, and then he sold it for his own personal gain under the absurd title of 'The Radio Caroline Bible'.
We have given him opportunity after opportunity to apologise, but no, he is too busy "twisting words / comments" so that the research work paid for by us in time and money - is dismissed by him as mere "facts" which he claims that we cannot copyright!
That is a contradiction in itself, because if they are not "facts" then they are not "truth", and since we had to put that "truth", those "facts" into sentences and paragraphs, they became copyrighted intellectual property - our copyrighted intellectual property.
But then he twisted our words; our comments, to fit a fictitious narrative of his own creation, so that it looks as if we were a party to his actions. In fact, and this is a fact, we had to tell him to remove an acknowledgment to us, because he wanted to ram his hypocrisy down our throat. He wanted us to say "thank you Paul Rusling for stealing from us and harming our reputation by your fictitious actions.
So, our advice to one and all is this: Beware of Paul Rusling's claims because he wants to be misunderstood as a harmless lamb and not as the devouring wolf that he really is.
To Paul Rusling: It is never too late to say "sorry" and try to make amends, but first you must stop stealing which is what you are doing by not withdrawing that book called 'The Radio Caroline Bible'. To anyone who posts on the Garry Stevens' Board: Please draw this editorial to Paul Rusling's attention when you next submit something for Garry Stevens' approval. You never know, he might wake up and worry about what he has done.
Here's a question for anoraks:
Why do your writers spend so much of their time and energy writing about Ireland (the Republic of), and linking Radio Caroline to the original and failed uprising in Dublin? What is the connection?
The answer is: none. There is no connection!
This is where the mythology of Ronan O'Rahilly comes into play.
But to get to the Dublin Post Office story, anorak writers have to leap over Ronan's father to his grandfather and a murky incident in which that man died. Murky because the anorak writers have a hard time in pinning down actual details, and they end up by misquoting even the misinformation that is in circulation. Paul Rusling is a classic example of this, but then Paul Rusling has boasted that he does no research into past events.
But to the issue itself, Why did the mv Fredericia go to Greenore?
Why did the mv Mi Amigo go to Greenore?
We have, in editions past, previously explained the answers in great detail, and that information is still on line if you know where to look. By the way, it is on this Blog and our companion Blog, in case you are wondering where to look. These blogs are really a book in progress, and it has been in publication since last year, but a combined and comprehensive, revised single edition, will also be appearing in print.
So, do you know the story behind the story involving Ronan's Dad who was born in England (not in Ireland), and why the Fredericia and Mi Amigo sailed for Ireland, and not the Isle of Wight which was their original destination?
Ronan's father was no revolutionary. He was struggling to build a family business, and his son (Ronan), was employed to play a part - even though Ronan pretended that he was not. Of course Ronan went off the rails and began to believe his own blarney, and that got him and a lot of his friends into serious legal trouble. Ask George Drummond (who had to change his name and disappear.) You can also ask George Lazenby, and then there is Cyril Nicholas Henty-Dodd who was encouraged to steal from his employer on behalf of Ronan's fake acting school. (The details are in Cyril's, that is Simon Dee's, published biography.)
Ronan's Dad wasn't at war with the British government, he was kissing up to the UK Board of Trade, and if you know where to look you will find a press photo of him doing just that. In fact, the guys in Ireland who were paid to work on the two ships got very angry when they discovered that the Fredericia was not going into service as the mv Iseult (O'Rahilly), but was intending to become a 'pirate radio ship' off Essex, England. Those guys were waving the nationalist flag, but not Ronan's Dad. He was smart, and just like Charles Orr Stanley who built up the Pye Group of companies in both the Republic of Ireland and the UK, and whose home was also in the Republic of Ireland, Ronan's Dad walked the line between Irish and English interests to further the interests of his family business.
Ronan's Dad was not trying to upset anyone with differing religious or political views.
Unlike his looney son who had delusions of being a film maker (never a broadcaster), his Dad succeeded and his son failed. It is the wild and wooly anorak press that has created a reverse picture of reality and it has placed Ronan O'Rahilly on a plinth built in the middle of their minds.
Take another look at our archived editions, you might be surprised by what you find - which is not to say that we never made mistakes, because we did. Like Ronan O'Rahilly, the anoraks never wanted this story to be published and so details were deliberately hidden under a mountain of misinformation. But where we have uncovered mistakes, or where they are pointed out to us, we then correct them.
For the sum total of our revisions you will have to wait for the printed version of this story. It has the working title of 'The Girl Who Never Was' (in case you had forgotten.)
Within hours of the montage below being posted on line, the dumbed-down anorak generation responded by claiming that we do not understand the meaning of the word 'woke', because of the way in which we incorporated that word in the illustration posted yesterday. But we do understand, and that is why we used it.
It is a word of shifting meaning like the term 'Jimmy Sands'.
The word had its origin in the USA as an expression of reverse-racism, meaning that those who had been the victims of racism in the past, have now become racists themselves, only they don't seem to be able to comprehend that this is what has happened. But the definition of the word woke has moved on from there to the point that it is now a part of the language of gibberish. This world of the anorak, is the world of the copycat, which is why another bit of American sub-culture has found its way to the British Isles and into the sub-minds of the anorak thought process.
The anoraks belong in a wood which remains hidden to them due to the preponderance of surrounding trees. Anoraks can't see the wood for the trees, just like the reverse racists can't see that they have become racists. The 'anti-frackers' who hate oil, have missed the bit in their education about the means of extracting lithium from the ground. No lithium, no batteries. No batteries, no electricity. No 'Jimmy', no money and that means no Radio Caroline.
But "wait!" mutter the anoraks, there was a Radio Caroline run like a business back in 1964 and people got paid. Then the business disappeared and so did the money. That resulted in no one getting paid except by methods that were anything but civilized behaviour. Now a token operation calling itself Radio Caroline has popped-up, and anoraks are being asked to dig deep and donate the money that they cannot generate by means of ordinary business. So the anoraks have actually created a token business. It is a form of business created for the sake of business. That is not why Radio Caroline came on the air in 1964.
Anoraks spend all of their time being oblivious to the subject of money. No money, no broadcasts. Ask an anorak to explain the "Jimmy Factor", and they can't. In their world the numeral one is followed by the numeral 9 or is it 23? Who knows? It's all too woke.
The anoraks see our two Blogs which are preparatory works that will eventually become two halves of a single educational script, and their eyes glaze over. Their solution? Reach for another picture book. Same pictures as before, just different angles. Weird.
We welcome all genuine input, but most of what we get is abuse from those who do not like to be told that they believe in mythology, but they are very quick to point out our typos. We say "thank you", and we rush off to fix the typos and then move on. The anoraks learn nothing and so they resort to playing obscure records and jingles from long, long ago.
But as for the educational purpose of these two Blogs, well, the anoraks are locked-in-step religious fanatics. They have a sense of being woke, but no sense of being awake. We don't care, we prefer the sane interpretation of life as taught by Martin Luther King that relates to the real world. We pay attention to the message, and not to race, or color of skin, and likewise we are not the least bit interested in the retelling of tales about oil shipments to rusting hulks that took place years ago. Neither are we interested in some loon who is pushing buttons on a computer that replays a sound that someone with a degree of musical talent once recorded, while all that the button pusher can do is banter about what they had for breakfast and pretend that he is doing all this on an imaginary broadcasting ship.
Anoraks have no message.
Many are at home in biological encasements that need more exercise in body as well as mind.
If you do spot a typo, or if you know the key to finding an answer to this ongoing riddle about where the money to start Radio Caroline in 1964 actually came from, please get in touch. We discovered that there are a lot of people named Oonagh Hubbard, Huggard and Leigh, and so it was great that David Cotter came along and showed us which one of the Oonaghs was the one we were trying to identify as the side kick of Ronan O'Rahilly. Mind you, David now wants us to explain why Oonagh Leigh was just O'Rahilly's side kick. We will, we will, in due course. There are also a lot of people named Charles Edward Ross - as well as many others that we are doing our best to nail down in genealogical terms. But we will, in due course of time.
On the other hand, if your mission is to tell us more about the meaning of the word 'woke', please don't bother, and just think - you might miss the six thousandth 'new' publication of yet another anorak tale about 'Jimmy'!
