Both of these characters know the truth, but neither one can voice the truth, because of self-interest.
While the anoraks all admit that this 1990 novel by Ian Cowper Ross is a work of fiction, they cannot explain why in 1991, BBC-TV allowed Ian Cowper Ross to retell his fictitious story as though it is fact.
Nor can the brain-dead anoraks explain why Ray Clark interviewed Ian Cowper Ross as though his novel was a work of non-fiction.
Nor can they explain why a fake story about a man named "Jim Shaw", who is also addressed as "Jimmy", is then turned into the father of Ian Cowper Ross. The reason for that lie, is to create a totally fake story about the 1964 financing of 'Radio Caroline' by Ronan O'Rahilly and Stephen Christoper Moore.
That lie is based upon a person called 'Jimmy Shaw' who does not exist.
Of course it is all a pack of lies, but that did not stop Ray Clark from issuing two books containing these expanded lies, or from Ray Clark going on radio and television and telling his reinterpretation of these same lies. But then a floodgate of hack writers who were all seeking vanity publication by repeating these same lies, climbed on to this same bandwagon of lies.
Therefore we call upon Ofcom to explain why they have also endorsed these lies, and why the Charity authority in England is allowing money to be solicited from the general public by the continued promotion of these lies?
You can discuss this here (click this link).
The bottom line is that the entire storyline about the 1964-1967 creation of 'Radio Caroline' as told by many authors after the publication of Ian Cowper Ross' 1990 novel, are totally fictitious, to the point where our exposure shows just how ridiculous and childish they are. See our updated evaluation of the Ray Clark interview using the menu button above.
Given the involvement by Ray Clark in promoting the fables of Ian Cowper Ross to the point of conjuring-up an entirely fictitious account about the founding in 1964 of 'Radio Caroline', and the facts that we are now laying before you (free of charge) by stripping away the lies for all the world to read and see, it is time for Ray Clark to step forward and admit that he published two books which had the effect of promoting a lie about not just 'Radio Caroline', but about the people hiding in the shadows, as well as the noisemakers who spun the lies and distortions. This declaration also applies to everyone who has been publishing nonsense and taking to the airwaves to deliver that nonsense to as many listeners and viewers as possible. At what point in time will Ray Clark admit that he was fooled, and that he has fooled everyone reading his books? From the standpoint of ethics in journalism, refunds to readers should now be made. The 'game' of deception that began in 1990-1991 is over!
Click the link below for a reminder of the part that Ray Clark has played in this ongoing deception:
On camera in 1991, Chris Moore told the BBC-TV audience that he was the person who made 'Radio Caroline' a reality by introducing Ronan O'Rahilly with an idea, to the father of Ian Cowper Ross who had some money and could turn that idea into a reality. However, what Chris Moore told the audience was a lie.
In 1990 Ian Cowper Ross wrote a novel about a man name 'Paul Shaw', and his book was financed by Ian Cowper Ross' aristocratic mother-in-law. Then Ian Cowper Ross became the 'star' of the 1991 BBC-TV documentary in which he began to infer that his 1990 novel was really his own autobiography.
Please note that he never specifically says this on camera.
What happens next is that Ray Clark interviewed Ian Cowper Ross who then began to further blur the line pf fantasy and fact. Extracts of Ross' 1990 novel are turned into reference to his own life, and the life of his father who he calls "Daddy".
In the 1990 novel a character called "Jimmy" is introduced without a surname.
But since the main character in the book is called 'Paul Shaw', and since "Jimmy" is supposedly the father of this non-existent character named 'Paul Shaw', then says Ray Clark and a host of others who climb on to the bandwagon of making things up (lying), then, "Jimmy" must be "Jimmy Shaw".
The only problem is that "Paul Shaw" does not exist, and therefore there cannot be a "Jimmy Shaw".
However, the minds of the totally ludicrous but manipulative anoraks are forced to use the words of Ian Cowper Ross on BBC-TV in which he implies that his novel is in fact autobiographical, without ever specifically making that claim. Ray Clark and others see no problem in drawing that specific conclusion, and with that hurdle cleared, the mindless and totally absurd, stupid, lying and yes, stealing anoraks turn "Jimmy Shaw" into "Jimmy Ross", and thus claim that he is the father of Ian Cowper Ross.
The father of Ian Cowper Ross is not "Jimmy Ross".
The fact that the father of Ian Cowper Ross is not named "Jimmy" but Charles Edward, does not bother hacks like Paul Rusling. He claims in his 'bible' that he published by his bulk print-on-demand methodology, that the friends of Charles Edward called him "Jimmy".
Where did he get that from?
He made it up.
The smart one in all this is Ian Cowper Ross. He giggled his way through the 1991 BBC-TV program as though he was high as a kite, and while he spun a yarn about his 'Daddy", he didn't cross the line and ever claim on camera that his novel of 1990 was the story of his life.
What about the American catalyst named Stephen Christopher Moore?
Well Chris Moore, merely says on camera that he introduced Ronan O'Rahilly to Ian Cowper Ross.
It is Ian Cowper Ross on camera who mocks Stephen Christopher Moore for having something to do with a cruise ship which made him an expert on purchasing a ship, and that Chris Moore took a case full of bank notes out of the UK to buy a vessel. But again, the names and the details are omitted. Listen again. Ian Cowper Ross never said that Chris Moore bought the mv Fredericia.
It is all smoke and mirrors.
A lot of fools hearing what they want to hear, and not what is actually said, have concocted this ridiculous tale about the start in 1964 of 'Radio Caroline'.
What is even more surprising is that up until 1990, no one tried to explain exactly how 'Radio Caroline' was financed in 1964, and as a matter of fact, aside from the revelations here on this Blog, that story has not even begun to be told as of today's date!
It was Jocelyn Stevens who came forward in early 1964 and admitted that he had a hand in the creation of 'Radio Caroline'. Stevens claimed that the venture began somewhere around September-October of 1963, although he was careful not to provide any specific dates.
Because Stevens was married to the daughter of John Sheffield, he is dragged into the fog of early press stories as being one of the financiers. The fact that Stevens in about 1960 became a director and shareholder in a subsidiary of Sheffield's primary enterprise, is not even mentioned. Nor is the fact there was no such company as 'Planet Sales' and that the UK Board of Trade had undertaken its own investigation to see who was behind 'Radio Caroline'. The company registered in Ireland called Planet Productions Limited was only formed a few weeks ahead of 'Radio Caroline' going on the air.
So who bought the ship and the radio equipment, and who paid for it to be installed?
Steven Christopher Moore still did not know in 1965 when he sued Ronan O'Rahilly in the UK High Court.
It is time to shut down Malcolm Smith's bogus claims. If he wants to call his tin-pot enterprise 'Radio Caroline', we have no objection - so long as he does not pretend that there is any connection to the original station 1964-1967 station called 'Radio Caroline'.
Now what should we do about the BBC and its habit of spending tax money to promote a lie, which they have been doing on radio, television and in print for decades?
That is something we are now pondering, because that act of tax-payer misfeasance and malfeasance has to stop, and the BBC has to make amends by finally telling the truth, particularly since it was a bevy of BBC personnel who made the engineering side of the 1964-1967 so successful.
The BBC has its own skeleton in the 'Radio Caroline' closet.
It was all part and parcel of a military-style operation whereby the left hand did not know what the right hand was doing, and neither did the owners of the various 'left hands' know the identities of the people controlling the 'right hands', and quite often, they did not know who had employed them.
Stephen Christopher Moore discovered that when he filed his suit in the High Court for wrongful dismissal!
In 1991, BBC-TV broadcast the foundation of the big anorak lie now trumpeted by Malcolm Smith with his two begging bowls that ask for your cash.
Malcolm disguises his intention this way:
First he has a ship which has become a rusting hulk that has absolutely nothing to do with the 1964-1967 story of 'Radio Caroline'. So Malcolm claims that it is the "Home of Radio Caroline". No it isn't, it is the home of Malcolm Smith's big lie that he uses to solicit money from really silly anoraks. To give his swindle an air of respectability, Malcolm Smith has obtained charity status for it under the laws of England.
Second, Malcolm Smith already filed fake registration papers with UK Companies House to create a limited company, again, under the laws of England. Malcolm Smith accomplished this by at one point filing as two different people: 1) a fake identity of 'Peter Moore' who does not and never has existed; 2) using his real name of Malcolm Smith.
With what seems to be two official stamps of approval upon his fraudulent claims (a limited company and an official charity), he then set forth to make his claims work for him in soliciting money. To do this, Malcolm Smith began a creeping plan of attention-getting by using the eponymous name of 'Radio Caroline' for a fake and tiny and insignificant radio station. With his foot in the door, Malcolm Smith applied for a power increase, and got it. He also applied to take over another station which he also named 'Caroline', and he succeeded in that as well.
Then along came Paul Alexander Rusling who was receiving our 'Caroline Investigation' newsletter - free of charge. Rusling made two visits in person to our embryonic new library in Scotland. In order to undermine our research and bolster Malcolm Smith's fraudulent enterprise, Rusling published a book which he called a 'bible' and which is nothing more than a sales piece for Malcolm Smith's enterprise. He achieves this by falsely claiming that the 1964-1967 venture called 'Radio Caroline' still continues on the air today.
By linking the story of the 1964-1967 'Radio Caroline' to Malcolm Smith's eponymous fraud.
But the main goal of Rusling was to undermine this research project by taking our documentation at that time, and then hammering it into a matrix of falsehood that bolstered the idiotic and childish claims of the con man known as Ronan O'Rahilly. In that way we would, Smith hoped, be neutralized and have no impact upon his solicitations for monetary support using thousands of pounds of free advertising in stories published by the mainstream press, and broadcast by the British Broadcasting Corporation. All of them have been used by Malcolm Smith to make the false claim that 'Caroline Continues', even though it doesn't: That claim is a lie.
Then Malcolm Smith came out swinging and began making personal attacks on one of the researchers in this investigation into the true origins of the 1964-1967 'Radio Caroline', and this was attached to the line that he and Rusling were more acquaintances rather than conspirators seeking to defraud the general public.
But as you can see in the video above, the fake story began as a novel called 'Rocking the Boat' that was written by Ian Cowper Ross in 1990, and published with help from his aristocratic mother-in-law, and promoted in the pages of the Establishment magazine called 'Tatler'. Then that novel was aired with calculated revisions in 1991, in a BBC-TV documentary called 'A Pirates Tale' in which Ian Cowper Ross implied that his 1990 novel was in fact his autobiography, meaning that it was a true account about the start of 'Radio Caroline'.
As the video above shows, an American named Stephen Christopher Moore claims that he had a flat mate named Ian Cowper Ross who had a rich father. It is an important part of this swindle to note that Ian Cowper Ross only refers to his 'Daddy' who he never identifies by name. Stephen Christoper Moore also says that he had another friend named Ronan O'Rahilly. Because O'Rahilly had an idea needing financing, Stephen Christoper Moore introduced O'Rahilly to Ian Cowper Ross whose father financed ideas.
According to Ian Cowper Ross on the 1991 BBC-TV program, and using the text of his 1990 novel to explain the sequence of events that followed the introduction by Stephen Christoper Moore, the three of them met at the 'Kenya' coffee shop. However, some time before this supposed meeting, that coffee shop had been renamed 'Kenco', as our video clearly shows.
This is where the bait-and-switch swindle turns the text of the novel into the script of the documentary. In the novel, the names of Moore, O'Rahilly and Ross do not appear. Three other characters are named with what might be construed as cover names for Moore, O'Rahilly and Ross.
On the BBC-TV documentary, Stephen Christopher Moore identifies himself, Ronan O'Rahilly and Ian Cowper Ross as the three individuals in question, but never does Moore link what he is saying to the 1990 novel. Neither does Ian Cowper Ross.
Upon arrival at Hindhead near Hazelmere, Surrey, which is where the real father of Ian Cowper Ross lived, the three fictitious characters pile out on the car and the Irish character in the novel begins addressing the character they have come to see by the name of 'Jimmy'. Because the novel says that this man's surname is 'Shaw', then his first name must by 'Jimmy', even though those two names are never connected together in the novel.
On the 1991 BBC-TV documentary, Ian Cowper Ross is careful to always call his father 'Daddy', and not 'Jimmy', but he does begin the process of blurring the 1990 novel with his 1991 delivery on television. It is only when the floodgate of books and magazine and newspapers articles begin to appear after the 1991 BBC-TV documentary, that Ian Cowper Ross begins to give interviews to people like Ray Clark.
When talking to Ray Clark by answering questions, Ian Cowper Ross begins to further embellish his 1990 fictitious tale to the point that he starts to claim that certain parts, like the drive to Hindhead are true. Like a true anorak, Clark rushes into print, not once, but twice with this blurring of fact with fiction. Because of Clark's work, 'Jimmy' is turned into 'Jimmy Ross', even though that makes no sense at all. Ian Cowper Ross' father is named Charles Edward Ross. To get around that, Paul Rusling claimed that the friends of Charles Edward Ross always called him 'Jimmy', because it was his nickname. Of course Rusling had to invent some excuse for this really silly name, and that was the best that he could invent on short notice.
What makes even less sense is when the anoraks read this fake story and identified Ian Cowper Ross' father on 'Wikipedia' as being "Carl "Jimmy" Ross of Ross Foods". As of the date of this writing (shown above), that is what it still says on 'Wikipedia', which is why that web site is one of the most unreliable sources of information on the Internet. 'Wikipedia' spreads fake information - accompanied by references citing fake information!
For the record, we have already uncovered the true genealogy of Ian Cowper Ross. We know all about his family and where they lived and what his father did for a living: he sold dry-cleaning franchises. He did not sell frozen food, wet fish or car telephones as many anoraks have now claimed.
That is not the only nonsense that has been published by 'Wikipedia' about the origins of the 1964-1967 'Radio Caroline'. It also claims the following: "Financial backing for the venture came from six investors, including John Sheffield, chairman of Norcross, Carl "Jimmy" Ross of Ross Foods, and Jocelyn Stevens of Queen magazine, with which Radio Caroline shared its first office."
Not only is the identity of Ian Cowper Ross' father completely in error in this 'Wikipedia' nonsense, but the link to John Sheffield also reveals that the writer did not even bother to cite the correct name of Sheffield's company. If the final reference to Jocelyn Stevens sharing his office with 'Radio Caroline' is false, and it is, then the next 'Wikipedia' sentence becomes totally ludicrous, even though it was used by Stephen Christoper Moore in his feature story that was spread all over the USA in its Sunday newspapers.
This is what 'Wikipedia' still claims, even though a lot of anoraks shudder when they read it because they know it is in error: "O'Rahilly named the station after Caroline Kennedy, daughter of U.S. president John F. Kennedy. On a fund-raising trip to the U.S., O'Rahilly reportedly saw a Life magazine photograph of Kennedy and his children in the Oval Office that served as the inspiration for the name 'Caroline Radio'."
But when readers of 'Wikipedia' turn from that entry under 'Radio Caroline' to one identified as 'Queen (magazine)', they then read: "In the late 1950s, under the editorship of Beatrix Miller, it was restyled to serve a younger readership that was defined by Miller in a style-sheet. .... Beatrix Miller's targeted reader .... was named 'Caroline' .... Stevens helped to finance a pirate radio ship project that was also named Caroline with the initial intention of extending the targeted reader as the targeted listener. When Radio Caroline first went on the air (from a ship that was also renamed Caroline), it operated from the editorial offices of Queen."
As a consequence of this incestuous ambiguity that blurs the line between fact and fiction, BBC-TV and 'Wikipedia' are now partners in the fraudulent ambitions of Malcom Smith who is claiming that the fiction of Ian Cowper Ross is indeed fact as proven by the reporting of both BBC-TV and 'Wikipedia'.
However, the bottom line is this:
Paul Alexander Rusling stole our work to aid Malcolm Smith in his fraudulent ventures for which he now claims protection under the embrace of the British Broadcasting Corporation; UK Companies House; and the UK Charity registry in England.
But no matter how loud the crooks scream that fiction is fact and that fraud is okay because of official sanction, we reply that "you must remember this .... It's still the same old story, A fight for love and glory, A case of do or die ...." and while "The world will always welcome lovers, As time goes by ...." the world will eventually turn on those who lie, cheat and steal.
"Dear little anoraks, don't you cry,
The truth will set you free,
Bye and bye."
It is no secret that we despise the idiotic, heads-in-the-sand rantings of anoraks who support the totally discredited and fictitious claims made about "Jimmy Ross"; Ronan O'Rahilly and the 1964 creation of 'Radio Caroline'. We have the same reaction to the nonsense spewed out by the self-gratifying publishing and broadcasting activities of Paul Alexander Rusling and his 'yes-he-is-but-no-he-isn't' friend of Malcolm Smith who pretends to be Peter Moore, who pretends that his rusting hulk and tin-pot radio station are somehow connected to the creation in 1964 of 'Radio Caroline'. But for the sane out there who are taking note of our investigation, here is part two (with more to follow), of the theme we began yesterday concerning the true identity of Stephen Christoper Moore ....
CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO READ THE FINE PRINT
As the fine print reveals, Stephen's mother Nancy married a British citizen, which is how Stephen gained his right to live and work in the United Kingdom, even though he was born and lived in the USA until he was eight years of age.
Although others claim that little is known about Stephen's life after his first arrival in the UK during 1948, the fact that the anorak fake story about 'Radio Caroline' has to jump to 1964 as though Stephen is really some sort of Jack-in-the-Box who mysteriously 'appears' on the scene, is total rubbish. We are now searching for any documentation revealing his actual life prior to the year 1964 when his truncated name became associated with 'Radio Caroline'.
However, it was in 1964 that the fake anorak story began as a means of misdirecting everyone away from the true story. It is a very complicated story involving a major manufacturer of electronics products; newspaper and print interests; persons interested in challenging the legal fundamental issues underpinning the then future North Sea Oil and Gas industry, as well as independent producers of drama and recorded music.
The 'Georgie Fame' story is the silliest fake of all, since Georgie Fame already had an LP pressed, produced and for sale by the huge EMI conglomerate. Equally silly is the childish 'Caroline Kennedy' myth, which was plastered all over America by Stephen Christopher Moore, as a feature story inserted into its major Sunday newspapers with Stephen Christopher Moore's picture on top of it!
But the real anorak scam began in 1990, because that is when the affluent and influential mother-in-law of Ian Cowper Ross published his novel and launched it from her Harley Street address in the pages of 'Tatler' magazine! Up until that point in time, very few publications had appeared in print to explain the 1964 origins of 'Radio Caroline', and all of them concealed the real story!
But after 1990, the floodgates opened to books, magazines and even the infamous 1991 BBC-TV documentary in which Ian Cowper Ross implied that his novel of 1990, is really a disguised version of what really happened. However, the first place to tell the real story about the true origins of 'Radio Caroline' is right here, and it has come to you - free of charge - as a public service in the public interest.
If you paid anorak fraudsters any money for their fake renditions: demand an immediate refund.
*Chris Moore was a club dj who became the "radio programme planner" of 'Radio Caroline'. Now if you believe the nonsense in the press, then you believe that 'Radio Caroline' of 1964 was pushing a young Hammond organ player named Georgie Fame. But you would be wrong in your belief, because Georgie already had an LP on the EMI label before 'Radio Caroline' first hit the airwaves.
Let's begin at the beginning by asking - who was Chris Moore?
His full name is Stephen Christoper Moore, and before the 'Radio Caroline' tag was hung around his neck, he was simply Steve Moore. Then, when he came to England from New York aboard the liner 'Queen Elizabeth' on May 19, 1948*, he was listed as Stephen Moore in the company of Nancy Moore who is his mother. At birth his surname was recorded as Moore, and his first names as Stephen Christopher.
Stephen was 8 and Nancy was 28.
There is an admitted air of mystery about the way in which Chris Moore just plopped on to the scene in London in 1964 after teaming up with a renegade young man named Ian Cowper Ross. Ian had adopted a reckless lifestyle habit of crashing vehicles into objects and other vehicles. First that landed Ian in hospital and then in court. We have already torn the lid of Ian Cowper Ross and his entire family. In fact. we could write a book about them, but as it is, they will only occupy a revelatory section to disabuse the anoraks of their mythology.
But Steve Moore, who became better known as Chris Moore, was in fact not known to the anorak world at all apart from the fact that he was a club disc jockey. So who was he? We know more about the weird lifestyle he lived after the days of 'Radio Caroline', but virtually nothing about why this young American came to England.
We will now endeavor to enlighten the world.
Let's begin with 'Radio Caroline' and Steve's company, of which he was a director under the name of Christopher Moore ....
Far from being a rock 'n' roll station, 'Radio Caroline' was the extended sound of the BBC 'Housewives' Choice' record programme.
From Monday to Friday beginning at 6 a.m. until 9 a.m. you could hear 'The Early Show' playing "pop music new releases and old hits up to 5 years" mixed with "classic pop eg Standards - Sinatra, Peggy Lee, Big Bands, etc."
From 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., the lazy housewives of south-east England could eat their toast and marmalade during the 'Breakfast Club' and listen to more Frank Sinatra and Peggy Lee along with those big bands.
At 10 a.m. until 11 a.m. housewives in south-east England might care to wash their dishes, make their beds and vacuum their floors while listening to 'The Sound of Music' - which in reality meant more Frank Sinatra and Peggy Lee, and of course those big bands with a nod to other artists who performed in a similar manner and style.
At 11 a.m. 'Radio Caroline' called its programming 'Top Deck', which in reality meant more of the same kind of music with Sinatra, Lee and big bands. Of course Perry Como and others would also be included.
Then at 12 Noon until 1 p.m., south-east housewives had a 'Date with Caroline', and in addition to Sinatra, Lee, and big bands, they could also hear pop music top 50 hits as well as old hits up to 5 years-old. But, in addition "R & B, Jazz, Hip sounds eg Jimmy Smith, Booker T, Georgie Fame etc.," would also be added to the mix.
Following that exhausting range of records, from 1 p.m. until 2 p.m. it was time for 'Spin Around' with more hit records new and old and of course a rendering of Sinatra, Lee and the big bands.
Filling in that time before the kids came in from school. it was time for 'Sound Track' which involved listening to "Sound Tracks eg Film & Stage shows, Themes, Pop music from films etc." - not forgetting more Sinatra, Lee and the big bands, of course. That would occupy the time of mothers from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m.
With the rowdy youngsters back home, it was time from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. for 'The Big Line Up' featuring "pop music eg Top 50 new releases and old hits up to 5 years", and "R & B, Jazz, Hip sounds eg Jimmy Smith, Booker T, Georgie Fame etc."
By now hubby was also home and so everyone could begin writing postcard requests from 6 p.m. until 7 p.m. to be played at a future date on 'Caroline Club Requests'. This is when the family could all enjoy the hits, new and old, along with Sinatra, Lee and the big bands.
Then at 7 p.m. until 9 p.m., the family could hear 'Down Beat' featuring more hits new and old and Sinatra, Lee and big bands, before turning off 'Radio Caroline' and switching on the telly.
But, for the night owls, 'Radio Caroline' came back on the air at Midnight with "R & B, Jazz, Hip sounds eg Jimmy Smith, Booker T, Georgie Fame etc.", plus hits new and old and of course Sinatra, Lee and the big bands during 'The Late Late Show' which led to another sign-off at 3 a.m. until 6 a.m. the next day.
This was the work product of Christopher Moore, the Program Director for 'Radio Caroline', and Chris thought that he had a steady job with 'Radio Caroline', but he was rudely disappointed as this news item (to the right) reveals. Chris did not know who he was working for and few knew that his first name is Stephen!
*Originally misprinted as '1949', but the ship's manifest shows a blurred 1948.
For a brief moment in the Sixties, airtime could be purchased from freebooters to deliver speech that was forbidden on the BBC airwaves. Listeners could chose not to listen, and the Establishment reacted accordingly.
For a long time the government of the UK did nothing, and then they threatened jail time for those who delivered alternative speech that was contrary to the views of the Establishment.
How? They decided who could be seen and heard on the Establishment airwaves, but they did not count on the appearance of freebooters.
It was not the music that worried the Establishment, there was always plenty of music, and there still is.
What the British Establishment did was to bring in censorship of speech by punishing anyone promoting an alternative religious or political point of view.
What did the anoraks do?
They pretended that 'free radio' equals freebooting music that can be heard anywhere. The anoraks worshipped freebooting.
Their idiotic leader was named Ronan O'Rahilly. He made it clear that he was an anarchist. He was a selfish anti-social idiot who did not care about others, because he only became concerned when he could not sponge off others in order to keep himself afloat without having to do any work.
Ronan O'Rahilly was a despicable idiot.
Now where has his anarchistic views got us now?
Well, look at the current political scene.
Any voices that stress a pro-Russian point of view are forbidden to express those views. The ban covers social media, printed media as well as radio and television.
This did not happen in the UK during World War II, no matter how much some wished that it had. Why was that? Was the generation of yesterday too smart for the Establishment?
What of the anoraks of today?
Are they too dumb to notice that they are lobsters in a pot with water that is constantly rising in temperature so that all thoughts of freedom of speech are being gradually killed off while the music plays on?
In the Nineteen Forties the dictators even got inmates at Auschwitz to form an orchestra which serenaded other inmates on the way to the gas ovens.
Your tax money is paying for weapons as gifts to kill women and children in a distant land while the golden oldies play on. Oldies like John Lennon's 'Imagine'. No, that won't do, it's about peace. Scrap that analogy. How about Grace Slick's 'Somebody to Love'? No, that is about liars and lying.
Anoraks are more in tune with the dumb lyrics of Jeffrey Epstein's anthem 'Young Girl'. Yes, that will do because a bunch of djs seem to have listened to those lyrics and put them into action.
Anoraks are stupid people and their leaders are some of the most ignorant human beings ever brought to life by the sexual intercourse of a male and female. Were their parents equally stupid?
In terms of human life, the Nineteen Sixties were not too long ago.
Winston Churchill commenting about Hitler and his ilk during the Nineteen Thirties claimed that dictators were afraid of words, and he compared the power of words to the insignificant power of tanks and planes.
Words can be put to music, but speech is a powerful weapon when it is delivered raw and unadulterated - uncensored.
Garry Stevens and Malcolm Smith want you to think that freedom of speech means revived forty-fives and in the case of Garry Stevens, he wants you to believe that him replaying edited bits of old tape is one man's fight for freedom. (Pardon the pun.) Of course, in the case of Stevens all sense of political speech has been removed from those old adulterated programs. Malcolm Smith merely tries to emulate the censored airwaves of yesterday before the freebooters came along. "This is the BBC Light Programme coming to you from an old boat anchored offshore ...."
Freedom of speech requires freedom to think about what has been heard.
Liberty is life itself.
Ignorance is indeed slavery as George Orwell told his readers in 'Nineteen Eighty Four'.
Now what has any of this to do with uncovering the true story about 'Radio Caroline'?
Well, just this:
The stupid anoraks are not only putting their own fingers in their own ears, but they are encouraging the Establishment censors to prevent anyone daring to express a view that is contrary to the Establishment - before they can even speak. What the anoraks seem to be primarily concerned about is the musical playlist of yesterday's freebooters, not with the political censorship that created today's world of woes.
At Auschwitz, the band also played on.
This state of censorship is not going to end well for anyone.
