The last precursory chapter posted online, which has already been revised by us twice, will soon be replaced with new text very soon.
We have now decided to answer the question: "Who was Don Pierson?" in a more detailed biographical form, rather than as a quick reference to aspects of his life as presently posted.
As we will show in the revision to come, it was not only Paul Rusling who stole our research material relating to 'Radio Caroline', but Howard Rose, Ray Anderson and Chris Elliot in a book they contributed to and titled 'The Wonderful Radio London Story'. However, what they published in several formats, was not the real story about that offshore broadcasting station.
Add to their confusion the offhand and derisory comments made by DJ Johnnie Walker relating to Don Pierson on the original commercial tape sold by Steve England about Don Pierson and 'Radio England', and the ship 'Olga Patricia', as well as the semi-correction commercial tape issued later by Steve England, and it seems that we need to correct the entire record that is presently in general circulation about the life and times of Don Pierson.
We will reflect what we knew about him when we first went into business with him; what we know now about Don Pierson now, as well as touching on the misinformation relating to Don Pierson's broadcasting activities that has been promoted by his son Grey Pierson.
To that distorted account, Tom Danaher has added his own smear of misinformation together with Ben Toney's input, and both of them have been laughingly promoted by the Paynes who in turn have added their own contributions to the destruction of truth under their brand name non-broadcasting business which they call 'Radio London'.
Therefore, we will retain the essence of our existing chapter about Don Pierson, but we will be introducing a detailed account of this man's life in order to reflect his actual biography, rather than in the form of snippets of information. Naturally this has already demanded a lot more of our time, and it is still preoccupying our time, but we hope to complete this task as soon as possible.
We will keep you informed about our progress.
