Ronan O'Rahilly arrived in London during 1961 with £100 in his pocket, or so he repeatedly claimed.
When was this?
The year was 1961 and in January a Russian spy ring is discovered in London and USA President Eisenhower delivers his warning about the 'Industrial-Military Complex' and then John F. Kennedy is sworn in as President; in March the first U.S. Navy Polaris nuclear submarine arrived at Holy Loch in Scotland; in April, Yuri Gagarin orbits the Earth is a crude USSR space ship; Cuba was invaded via its Bay of Pigs; in August the Berlin Wall is built, and in December, Fidel Castro declares that he is a Marxist-Leninist.
At some time during 1961 Ronan O'Rahilly arrived in London with £100 in his pocket, or so he repeatedly claimed.
Then what happened in 1962? In October the Cuban Missile Crisis began a show down to a potential nuclear World War III, and in November President John F. Kennedy agrees to stop blockading Cuba when the USSR agrees to remove its missiles. But what is not admitted is that the CIA is operating a secret base in South Miami under the direction of U.S. Attorney Robert F. Kennedy. The mv 'Olga Patricia' is added to this secret fleet after the mv 'Mi Amigo' is found to be too small for the job at hand. That same month, Manual Artime Buesa is released from a Cuban prison after a massive ransom is paid to Fidel Castro, and then 'BAM' is welcomed back to the USA as a hero by President John F. Kennedy at a crowded ceremony in the Orange Bowl stadium in Miami. Manual Artime Buesa (BAM), will be the go-between Don Pierson and the mv 'Olga Patricia'.
Then in 1963, Allan James Crawford said that he first met Ronan O'Rahilly at the beginning of that year. In June 1963, Ronan O'Rahilly was sent to Houston to negotiate a lease for the radio ship 'Mi Amigo'. He failed. In August, Allan James Crawford registered Project Atlanta Limited in London. On November 22, President Kennedy is murdered in Dallas in front of a huge audience; in December the 'Mi Amigo' left Galveston Island for Portugal, and a few hours later, the mv 'Fredericia' left Copenhagen bound for Rotterdam.
Then on February 28, 1964, a sales called Planet Productions Ltd. was registered in Dublin, on the very same day that Beatrix Miller quit as editor of 'Queen' magazine, and then, in March, Ronan O'Rahilly who showed up in 1961 with £100 in his pocket, suddenly appeared in the press claiming to be the creator of 'Radio Caroline'.
Ronan O'Rahilly shows up in London during 1961 with £100 in his pocket during a period of time when a nuclear World War III is likely to begin at any moment, and yet, by early 1964 he has a radio ship anchored off the southeast coast of England.
Who paid for it?
What is the name of the company that put this venture together?
Who was Ronan O'Rahilly?
The pebble factor causes ripples to radiate in all directions, and this includes the deceitful activities chaired by President Kennedy, and the work of his brother U.S. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy who presides over a rogue CIA base whose activities nearly result in a nuclear World War III. Ronan O'Rahilly claims to be a fan of both Kennedy brothers who almost destroy the modern world, but Ronan O'Rahilly was as much of a fraud and a fake as the Kennedy brothers.
The fans of Ronan O'Rahilly claim to know everything about the 'Mi Amigo' and the offshore radio ships, but in reality they know nothing, or they are afraid to admit the truth. They never mention Manuel Artime Buesa or his connections to the mv 'Olga Patricia' and Don Pierson's twin offshore radio stations - even though there is documentary evidence to reveal the real story. No, these fans support the wild claims made by Ronan O'Rahilly.
What are those wild claims?
Let's begin with Ronan O'Rahilly showing up in London during 1961 with £100 in his pocket at a time when the world sits on the brink of a nuclear nightmare. Between 1961 and early 1964 he manages to buy a ship called 'Fredericia', as well as radio broadcasting equipment which he imports from the USA, and let's not forget the lawyers who do the paperwork that enables him to register his ship; form a sales company, and the staff he has to hire, and he does all of this after January 1963 when he first met Allan Crawford.
He does all of this with just £100 in his pocket. That was in 1961, but he did not start spending his money until after January 1963 when he first met Allan Crawford, because it was from Crawford that he got hold of plans to start an offshore radio station called 'Caroline', or so he said.
On camera and on British television in the presence of Ronan O'Rahilly in 1964, Jocelyn Stevens said that the plan to start 'Radio Caroline' did not begin until about September or October of 1963, and Ronan O'Rahilly did not contradict him. It makes the miracle of O'Rahilly even more wonderful.
It is almost "Biblical" in the religious sense of the word, because Ronan O'Rahilly took that 'New Testament' story about bread and fish, and translated it into modern terms about a ship and transmitter.
In "September or October" of 1963, Ronan O'Rahilly took that £100 out of his pocket and transformed one hundred Pounds into hundreds of thousands of Pounds by March 1964 and thus he gave birth to 'Radio Caroline'. No wonder that a sham anorak author called his book 'The Radio Caroline Bible'.
Of course that is not the real story behind 'Radio Caroline'.
It was created by an amalgamation of three interests at work: the electrical manufacturing industry; the oil and gas industry, and the publishing industry. It is from within this third category that the spies who spread misinformation are able to manipulate publications as part of their own 'joint ventures'.
Years later, the same story repeats itself with Robert Maxwell's alleged connections to Mossad, and Maxwell's daughter becoming a part of the bizarre world of sexual activities that reach into todays' British Royal Family. But here we are not dealing in generalities, we are dealing in very specific events involving very specific people at a very specific time and place, and all of that brings us back down to earth and the mundane, tedious questions about the origins of 'Radio Caroline'.
It's time to play that 'golden oldie' by Gene McDaniels, only delete the bit about 'clay'.
Ronan O'Rahilly claims to have taken £100 in cash and turned it into hundreds of thousands of Pounds.
No, a lie.
