It's almost sixty years since a few people began dining out on their heroic antics three miles of the coast of Frinton. Now's another chance to extract some money off of the gullible with this fabulous rehash of old stories and your chance to make a 3D model, that no doubt will take pride of place in your shed!!!
And all the anoraks go on about is the massive injustice of not having enough kilowatts or who was best, Laser or Caroline? (it was Big L by a million miles).
Free radio in the UK and in North West Europe was never about freedom! Some of the presenters became believers that they were indeed freedom fighters. They were never that. At best they gave a couple of fingers up to the authorities, after that they left their respective radio stations and tried to get a job in radio if they were good enough. Many were not and did not.
If Free Radio had been about Free Speech, and the right to adopt the same constitutional rights as those held by the citizens of the USA, then all offshore stations in the region mentioned above would have quickly disappeared.
Free speech however has crept across the Atlantic and is about to be suppressed in the UK by the most Globalist totalitarian government and opposition ever, who pretend they have your best interests in mind whilst silencing your thoughts let alone comments online.
Thankfully we can be confident that the greatest offshore free radio fighter Radio Caroline has got your backs! Whats that? Sorry what I meant to say is that they are just old men whistling in the wind and pretending that everything is fine. Last person out turns of the light.
Meanwhile in free speech land we have these terrible & traitorous goings on....
A few bookmarked videos to add to your collection, next month we present train spotting for beginners.
Well that was a strange couple of months. COVID, secondary infection(s) and wonderfully damaged sinuses. As the world continues to march towards it's own well deserved oblivion (not me I have built up some immunity & had my booster jabs) lets go back to the 1960's & 70's and enjoy some New York Mafia radio and some real seventies heads down no nonsense offshore Anoraking. If you share any of these vid's on the silly forums and don't mention this place a local gypsy is on stand by to put a curse on you (and she's real ugly too).
The first tape from January 1966 is a bonafide recording by Jack Spector (WMCA) made for Radio Caroline.

the quote you mention was surely from Mervyn, or John England or Caroline Brooks or his mythical 'trio ' of colleagues. It is not the first time he has accused me of multiple criminal actions and even my making this post will in due course come to his notice when he will spit out still more impotent fury.
As it happens I sent various examples of Mervyn's outpourings to a defamation lawyer and then had a meeting.
The advice was that in normal circumstances i.e. if dealing with a normal person, a ' Cease and
Desist ' letter would cure the problem.
But in this case the lawyer , being of the opinion that Mervyn is clearly deranged, suggested that a cease and desist would cause him to post even more outrageous accusations.
Then I woud be obliged to go to law causing me to spend money not all of which would be recovered when the case was found in my favour.
Additionally if damages were awarded there was doubt that Merv could pay.
Lastly, were his multiple postings doing me any actual damage that I could demonstrate, or were such readers as he has perfectly aware that he is a nut job, fruit loop and many bricks short of a load.
I detect no damage only frustration at being unfairly targeted. Maybe Merv's brain will explode soon.
Well there are always two sides to every story, but on this occasion you can have a third, all free of charge, no donations required, no support group needed, just my ten penny's worth.
As requested by Mervyn in the comments of the previous post, Here I go...
I can indeed confirm that I know what Mervyn is currently working on and have been copied in on some of the documents and correspondence from individuals going back to 1959. The trio are all real people as is Caroline Brooks and they all go back together a considerable amount of time. Like Malcolm Smith who calls himself Peter Moore, Mervyn once used the name John England for his radio work, there's nothing unusual with that as most anoraks should be keenly aware of. Mervyn & I have never met in person or spoken in person and indeed we are hundreds of miles apart.
I tend to agree with his opinion that the current version of Radio Caroline has nothing to do with the original 1964 - 67/8 radio station. I personally think the current version should distance itself from Ronan O'Rahilly for their own self interest and stop parroting the myth of Caroline's name being based on Caroline Kennedy. If you have read Lyn Gilbert's book and Andy Archer's lengthy article in a 1970's Freewave magazine (previously featured here), then hopefully any rose tinted views of Ronan will have been replaced by a more accurate understanding of how he operated and took advantage of others.
Was he any different in the 1960's? Well who he mixed with might answer that question, but I will leave that for the publication of Dial 999 For Caroline.
Just to be clear I have no personal axe to grind with Malcolm who I know has worked tirelessly for his radio station for many years. I don't personally listen anymore so am not inclined to comment beyond that. Perhaps Mervyn could lower the rhetoric towards Malcolm but that will be his choice, we are all getting along in age now and old and wise enough to decide for ourselves what we choose to do.
I will state again my own personal motivation is to understand what actually happened in the creation of offshore radio as this considerably shaped my growing up and who I am today. If I was fed a load of nonsense, half truths or simply got it all wrong, then I would like to know. That's all, it's not complicated, however as an afterthought perhaps you dear reader could contribute to this websites forthcoming fundraiser. £10 a month will gain you a behind the scenes look at my computer and a tea shirt with some brands name on it!
A Nice Clickbait title for this video as I know hundreds of regular visitors here are Anoraks who loved the North sea radio era and might just be attracted by that alone. That said it's an accurate description and it's all happening near Radio Waddenzee's old haunt. A couple of other videos included about the weather for good measure, just out of interest how are you coping with this years Global Warming summer weather in the UK & Holland? Oh no it's started raining again, sorry I have got to go and put up the sun parasol to stop the plants getting drowned for the third time today........
Or even conspiracy theorists! The CIA devised the term conspiracy theory to deflect against those who challenged the official narrative regarding the assassination of JFK in 1963. Ever since then many many docile morons have fallen into the main stream media trap that a theory about possible conspiracies must be madness / bad / lies etc.
Anyway our lowest unique visitors per day was around sixty, so NO this site will not change the world. That said we are doing well over that these days and interestingly I know that most of those on the image above come here!! (Never let anyone have access to your IP address - use a VPN or TOR or both, The pirate forums leak like nobodies business).
Has anyone ever noticed that it's always the trolls who call over people trolls. So keep on with your double standards, keep on telling yourselves I am Mervyn's side kick, be as rude as you like, if the real world frightens you keep listening to old tapes of bygone days or the watered down version of Ronan's 70's & 80's cash machine, it matters not in the grand scheme of things. Have fun oldies and keep on thinking free... (or at least start). - Mike Wilson
