YesterPockets are those stories inserted into the main narrative.
Often used in novels where the main story continues until you hit a chapter which begins to tell the same story but from a different perspective; this book alternates between storyline one (the main storyline), and storyline two.
That inserted storyline is what we call a 'YesterPocket'.
As you know by now, we are not claiming to be 'historians', but we are claiming to tell a single story from a biographical viewpoint. However, while there are three main biographical accounts telling this story, and while there are also more than three biographical accounts telling part of this story, those minor accounts are more-or-less sub-biographies as told by, or about individuals such as Herb Jepko.
Jepko is not a part of the main story. But neither is Don Pierson, and yet his biographical insertion is very important to an understanding of the actual storyline.
That also applies to Ronan O'Rahilly.
His story is also a 'YesterPocket' because Ronan O'Rahilly lied about his actual biography, and that deception then influenced Don Pierson. So what Don Pierson did was to respond to a lie. In other words, what Don Pierson thought was true was in fact a lie, and that lie promoted by Ronan O'Rahilly turned into a disaster for Don Pierson. That was true.
Now add to that confusion the still ongoing lies and deception spun by people like Paul Rusling in his 'bible'. That book supports the aims and ambitions of Malcolm Smith (who calls himself 'Peter Moore',) while Garry Stevens supports Paul Rusling by giving him advertising space for his bogus bible! But making this into a total muddle (it seems), is the same Garry Stevens who is attacking Malcolm Smith who uses the bogus name of 'Peter Moore', and in return, Malcolm Smith who calls himself 'Peter Moore', is attacking Garry Stevens, or so it seems.
So who benefits from all this?
The British Crown Establishment.
It was the British Crown Establishment that leaned on the British Broadcasting Corporation and told them to create BBC 'Radio One' as a substitute for Don Pierson's 'Wonderful Radio London'. Not 'Radio Caroline', but 'Radio London'.
This story gets more whacky when the interjection of Terry Bate is thrown into the mix, because no one has paid much attention to Terry Bate with regards to the real story behind 'Radio Caroline'. How could they? There was no such company. Therefore the real story behind Terry Bate is not that he was employed personally by Ronan O'Rahilly, because Ronan O'Rahilly was himself a mere scam artist. So who employed Terry Bate?
Now throw into this mix the BBC who reclaimed their use of the name 'Radio London'. Remember, Philip Birch was told that he could not register that name in the United Kingdom, so registered Radlon (Sales) as a substitute. What was the identity of the party that had a preexisting interest in the name Radio London?
The British Broadcasting Corporation.
Another smokescreen has been thrown up as part of a misdirection to 'Radio Luxembourg', but they never claimed to be 'Radio London'. The BBC did since the days of World War II. But the BBC resurrected the name just before they began to box in the new plan to turn the Independent Television Authority into the Independent Broadcasting Authority. That is when the people mixed up in the pre-launch of commercial radio were the same people behind the real story of 'Radio Caroline'. Then back in the saddle, or so it appeared at the time, climbed Terry Bate. He had told everyone that Ronan O'Rahilly asked him rescue 'Radio Caroline' back in the mid-Nineteen Sixties, but that of course was untrue.
This is where and why and how this story gets very complicated indeed. But that was the idea!
However, it is at the end of the Sixties and at the beginning of the Seventies when Mervyn Hagger decided to leave the United Kingdom and go in search of the real story behind the actions of Don Pierson as the person that created 'Radio London', 'Radio England' and 'Britain Radio', only Hagger thought that the mystery only swirled around 'Radio Caroline'.
But since the story that has been promoted up until now about 'Radio Caroline' is 100% fake, it means that Don Pierson reacted to a fake story. What Don Pierson thought was true was not true.
Guess who else was conned by all of those lies?
What Tony Benn was addressing was not the problem caused by 'Radio Caroline' (which did not exist as a company), but about the people behind-the-scenes who began to write the real storyline script at the dawn of broadcasting itself.
This is a tangled mess and the only way to untangle it is to start with the storyline that is known to be true, and then add other storylines also known to be true to the first one, and then compare the fiction that those storylines run into, with the known facts. That is what you are reading in this serialized account and part work.
