This blog began as a book review in response to Paul Rusling's 'The Radio Caroline Bible' due to its incorporated plagiarism from original research conducted primarily by three people ('The Trio') who are officially represented here. Although promotion for that book claimed and then deleted that claim, that its author had received cooperation from a member of 'The Trio', no such approval was ever given. Because the text of that book is so distorted by inclusive hoax material and by obfuscation of the original research referred to above, this blog has now become an ongoing serial about the start of Radio Caroline in 1964, because until now, that story has not been told by any book or program. It should also be noted that the broadcasting station called Radio Caroline and which operated from two different ships at anchorages located to the south and north of England, ended all transmissions at midnight on August 14, 1967. However, various groups have claimed a broken lineage by unrelated use of that name.
Why didn't anyone else try to discover who Arthur Carrington is? That is what I hope to reveal very soon - as soon as an international delivery arrives with some key information ....
Still waiting for more chain of custody information about Arthur Carrington who will holds the key to something that Scottg wants to know, and Paul Rusling cannot explain to him or to anyone else. Neither it seems can Ray Clark, going by that awful Radio 4 program he helped to put together with his fantasy background material about Ronan O'Rahilly ...
No, I have not gone away like Paul Rusling. I am still working on putting all this information together, and unlike Scottg who doesn't understand what this is all about, I am working hard to assemble chain-of-custody information to explain who Arthur Carrington is in relation to this story. But as I told you before, I am waiting for information to arrive, and due to the pandemic it seems to have slowed down international deliveries. As soon as that information becomes available, I will be posting more right here, about that chain of custody.
Earlier a request was made on the Forum about the 1965 Hilton Hotel speech made by US Senator Robert F. Kennedy from New York, at the request of Ronan O'Rahilly.
I will include that speech as a part of this post, but there is a back story which you need to be aware of:
First it ties into the visit by Robert F. Kennedy's slain brother John to Ireland in 1963 at a time when Ronan O'Rahilly was in Houston.
Second, the speech was originally part of a ruse to get an interview for the 'National Enquirer' by telling RFK that TAF was the news arm of Radio Caroline, and that the station had been named after RFK's neice.
Third, Ronan O'Rahilly had been sent to New York in order to participate in the US-TV network show 'To Tell the Truth'. O'Rahilly in New York, called Robin Leach at his office in New York, and asked him to get RFK to make this speech which began by first greeting Prime Minister Harold Wilson.
Fourth, RFK was told this speech would be broadcast to the people of Ireland on St Patrick's Day by Radio Caroline, and not just relayed over the speaker system at the London Hilton.
Fifth, the tape was then delivered to Number 10 on behalf of Ronan O'Rahilly.
Sixth, when this took place in 1965, Prime Minister Harold Wilson was participating in the advancement of peace in Ireland, and the intervention by O'Rahilly represented the first of three major attempts by O'Rahilly to attack Prime Minister Wilson by name, and to also insult him in posters and song.
Remember, this is during 1965 at a time when Sinn Fein and the IRA were standing down.
It was around the time of this event that Ronan O'Rahilly began to capitalize on the British killing his grandfather, thus stoking the flames of hate.
Harry Spencer who built the Caroline and Atlanta masts, has described O'Rahilly Sr as hating everything to do with the British.
Like father, like son, but Ronan O'Rahilly was a wolf in sheep's clothing, and a CROOK at that.
I am still awaiting information to be delivered that will enable me to continue with my story relating to Arthur Carrington. It has not arrived as yet. We already have quite a bit of background information, but there are some links that still need to be attached to reveal how he became involved with the story of Radio Caroline in order to conceal a myth that there were originally two projects and not one.
In the meantime the following thread has cropped-up on the Forum. I wonder if you have seen it and what your reaction might be?
It has come to light that while the 'Caroline Kennedy' hoax was created in 1965 for NY journalistic reasons to hook Bobby Kennedy for a 'National Enquirer' interview; Ronan O'Rahilly who was in NY for the ABC-TV panel game show 'To Tell the Truth', intervened and got Bernard and Leach to participate in what they thought was an innocent St Patrick's Day broadcast on Radio Caroline.
Instead it was use to embarrass Prime Minister Harold Wilson at a time when peace was on the agenda in Ireland with the blessing of all concerned. That was in 1965.
In 1967 Ronan O'Rahilly wrote a silly speech for Johnnie Walker to read at midnight on August 14. Again the target was Harold Wilson.
In 1970, not only was Prime Minister Harold Wilson targeted within a picture of Chairman Mao, but a WWII song aimed at Adolph Hitler was resung and aimed at Prime Minister Harold Wilson.
Meanwhile, in Ireland, 'The Troubles' were about to begin and bombings of a pub and a hotel in England was about to occur with tragic loss of life. I won't even begin to describe the reign of terror that gripped a part of the island of Ireland.
All of this bloodshed, mayhem and misery - all of it - can be traced back to 1965 and an idiot gadfly named Ronan O'Rahilly who was beginning to start a campaign to wreck the peace and begin a terrorist war.
Yet, the troll-anoraks are in love with this man who even Malcolm Smith disowns.
Explain that you trolls.
I am sure this will provoke a number of comments.
Yes, I am still waiting for new material to arrive, but in the meantime I have now noticed that whereas the trolls said that I did not exist, now they say I do exist but that my dog may not be named Ralph. Well, let me clear that up. I never said that Ralph is my dog, I said that Ralph is my uncle's dog, and Ralph is looking out for me, just as I am looking out for my uncle's property during the shut down. Please stop picking on Ralph, it makes him bark.
I am sorry, I had to come back to add this because a squirrel is now after me. Seriously, that is the self-imposed identity of this troll who has tried to post on the Forum, but cannot follow the rules and so the squirrel will not be able to see its troll post. The squirrel is now kvetching on about the ownership status of Ralph and has become convinced that I am not a man but some other woman. Why are these people so crazy? I mean they spend all this time writing to attack people with hate but they cannot address any of the issues. It really is a psycho-world in trollville. We just hit the delete button when they write to us.
At the moment we are still awaiting receipt of new information, and due to the slow down in delivery, especially of transatlantic printed material (due to the pandemic), there is not much that I can do but wait. However, I have noticed an amazing response from fearful trolls who are constantly launching personal attacks, and yet, they never respond to any of the issues raised. There can be only one explanation: fear. May I suggest that you trolls stop reading this Blog and its related Forum? I just don't understand the hate that these people have for new information which may end up debunking what they have always believed to be true. So if this describes you, please stop reading my Blog and participating on my Forum where your hate posts are deleted before they even appear.
If you pick up one of the many books about the story of British commercial radio in the Nineteen Sixties, you will find that they all begin in the Nineteen Twenties and continue into the Nineteen Thirties and then they disappear into a big fog that descends at the close of the Nineteen Thirties; continues into the Nineteen Forties, and re-emerges at the dawn of the Nineteen Sixties. Then the mythology begins about Arthur Carrington, but to know who he was it is necessary to go back into that fog and find our way into the Nineteen Fifties, and that is what we shall be doing very shortly.
The other day I not only put the focus on Arthur Carrington, but I also told you that we are awaiting new information. Then the Scott Simon interview with Johnnie Walker took place and so I addressed that issue. Now I am back to waiting for the information I previously told you about.
