I went out first on the Windy from Dunkirk with Cosmic, Tony Peters, Peter Chicago & I believe Chris Conway. I was out there running the Gods. I then ran out of Ramsgate with Alex on the Seahorse then the Galexy. It was the best time of my life, if I was asked again I wouldn't hesitate. My on ship name was Terry Reed later to be Mickey Gee

Jim Richman - Satellite from 2001

We've had a number correspondents who know a 'Jim Richman' said to have modelled himself on Radio London's Earl Richmond & stated he spent a short time on the Fredericia in 1967

Example: I just noticed on the "Caroline Roll Call" (21/9/10) a reference to Jim Richman. He first came to my attention some years ago through an interview in Offshore Echos. He claimed to be Jim Gordon and worked on the Fredericia in 1965. However there were certain things that did not ring true. The Jim Gordon that we all remember from Caroline North was the Australian Guy Blackmore, who only worked on the station after the MOA. He also stated that he worked alongside the likes of Stevie Gee. Again this chap was on the South ship after the MOA and never served on the Fredericia. There are statements to the effect saying he worked on the Fredericia AND the Mi Amigo and claims he read the news for Tony Blackburn and Johnnie Walker. Johnny didn't join Caroline until October 1966, some months after Jim's supposed departure. A case of mistaken identity or pure fantasy as others have said - Name supplied to Ed

3/10/14 Above is the only picture I can find of me in the North Caroline studio. I worked on Mi-Amigo when she went into dry dock to be refitted with a 317C Continental transmitter 50Kw. Was also on board the Cheetah and successfully got the old 10 Kw transmitter on air using a big bowl from the gally. The high voltage at the end of the antenna wire would arc until the wire broke and fell down on the deck. The dish spread the voltage so it did no harm. Those were the days, one could carry a fluro' tube in your hand on deck fully lit up with no burning and no connection leads. In Australia I looked after the local commercial radio station 4CA for over 21 years and then 4KZ for 4 years. Then had my own 2000 watt licence and fully automated (Radio Cool) played all old stuff. I sold out and now its Kick-FM with Country. I'm 84 now so there are not too many of us around. I am a dedicated "ham" and often contact chaps in UK on 12 metres - John Roberts - Autralia
