Default M.I,5.Persecutio n - Capital R adio - Chr is Tarr ant

-= Capital Radio -. Chris Tarrant -=

Capital. Radio DJs have been "in on it" from the start. One of the first
things I heard in the. summer of 1990 was from a Capital DJ who said, "If
he listens to Capital then he can't be all bad" (supportive, you. see. We're
not *******s). Much of what came over the radio in 1990 is now so. far away
the precise details have been obliterated by time. No diary. was kept of the
details, and although archives. if they exist may give pointers, the
ambiguity of what broadcasters said would. leave that open to

In spring. 1994, Chris Tarrant on his Capital morning show made an aside to
someone else in. the studio, about a person he didn't identify. He said,
"You know this bloke? He says we're trying to kill him. We should be. done
for. attempted manslaughter".

That mirrored something I. had said a day or two before. What Tarrant said
was understood by. the staff member in the studio he was saying it to; they
said, "Oh no, don't say that". to Tarrant. If any archives exist of the
morning. show (probably unlikely) then it could be found there; what he said
was so. out of context that he would be very hard put to find an explanation.
A couple of days later, someone at the site where I. was working repeated the
remark although in a different way; they said there had been people. in a
computer room when automatic fire. extinguishers went off and those people
were "thinking. of suing for attempted manslaughter".

Finally, this isn't. confined to the established radio stations. In 1990
after I had listened to a pirate. radio station in South London for about
half an hour, there was an audible phone call. in the background, followed
by total silence for a few moments, then shrieks of laughter. "So. what are
we supposed to say now? Deadly torture?. He's going to talk to us now, isn't
he?", which meant that they could hear. what I would say in my room.
