    -= 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 bastards). 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 re-interpretation.

    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.
