This Blog is devoted to unmasking the truth about the origin, creation and management of 'Radio Caroline', which was a spin-off from another offshore station called 'Radio Atlanta'. How that split occurred is what we will reveal here, while its context within the wider story can be found here.
Just as we have begun to strip back here, the aristocratic genealogy (via marriage) of the Ian Cowper Ross family (and we have have not yet finished with that part of the story), so too will the history of the Jensen Car Company and its entanglement with Charles Edward Ross be told here. That part of the jigsaw will follow next.
Indeed, this is not a story about a young Irish rogue, but a very British account of divisions within the British Establishment, with the hoi polloi invited to look on and marvel at what was accomplished, and why. But the hoi polloi were not the movers and shakers, they remained hidden from public view. What the hoi polloi thought that they had 'discovered' in pictures, on the airwaves and in print, is merely what they were told to see, hear and read.
The Establishment was in charge, and 'Radio Caroline' was a creation of one part of 'The Establishment'.
