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!
