  • ATLANTIS STATEMENT

    On 8 September 2021 Atlantis Radio UK Limited instituted High Court proceedings against Radio Caroline Presenter Raymond Copeland claiming damages for libel and malicious falsehood limited to the sum of £50,000.

     

    Atlantis Radio had no desire to become embroiled in an expensive and protracted High Court trial and accordingly, on 1 December 2021 offered to settle the proceedings on the basis that Mr Copeland made a nominal payment of £1,000 damages together with Atlantis Radio’s legal costs.

     

    We are pleased to now be in a position to announce that following a Court hearing which took place on Wednesday 18 May 2022 which dealt with the basis upon which Mr Copeland would pay Atlantis Radio’s costs, the High Court proceedings have now, subject to the payment of those costs, been brought to an end.

     

    We believe that this sends out a strong message that persons cannot make libellous accusations using fake names and then hope to hide behind anonymous Twitter accounts with impunity.

     

    The sad thing about this whole episode is that Mr Copeland had the opportunity last August to come clean before the proceedings were issued and admit that he was the person behind the defamatory email that was sent to one of our advertisers using the name of a Mr Nick Albarn who falsely claimed that he was an investigation reporter.

     

    A letter from our lawyers was also sent in August 2021 to Malcolm Smith (who goes also by the name of Peter Moore), the owner of Radio Caroline, which drew to his attention the contents of the email which we believed had been sent by Mr Copeland. However, notwithstanding this, Mr Copeland has continued to this day as a Presenter on Radio Caroline despite their management being fully aware of the libel proceedings that Atlantis Radio had instituted against him.

     

    The Court has now ordered that Mr Copeland pay Atlantis Radio’s costs up until 8 March 2022 and we believe that the estimate for the legal costs for both sides will end up being in the region of £40,000 to £50,000. This is obviously a disappointing outcome in respect of a matter that we believe could have easily have been settled for a few thousand pounds and a legal undertaking if the Defendant had come clean last August.

     

    Following on from the outcome of yesterday’s hearing, Atlantis Radio would like to make clear that Atlantis Radio will continue to enforce its legal remedies should there be any repetition of the serious allegations made by Mr Copeland by him or any other Radio Caroline presenters or employees.

     

    Finally, we would like to thank Ofcom who have been kept in the loop on all matters over the last 9 months and have been very supportive in our actions, this entire episode has been an unneeded nightmare for us that we could have well done without.

  • HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR TO ALL OUR LISTENERS

    Privet/Hello/Bon Dia/Bon Jour,

    On behalf of the entire Atlantis family I would like to wish all our advertisers and listeners a Happy Christmas and prosperous New Year.

    2021 has seen fantastic growth for the brand with over 50 new advertisers coming on board with us, we expect to grow the Atlantis brand further in 2022 with a target of an additional 100 new clients by the end of the year.

    I know many of you would like to know our plans for expansion along with news of the offshore promotion project for which I am happy to set out below.

    * ATLANTIS ROCK Following extensive research and internal discussions with the management team, we have decided that a daytime rock service at present is not viable as it is more suited to a nighttime market which we intend to increase with various marketing ideas.

    The current night time classic album tracks format will continue and be extended to feature presenters into the early hours.

    Roger Mathews and Bob Noakes have done a fantastic job for us and they will be joined in January by late night Rob at weekends along with a couple of new presenters later in the month.

    ATLANTIS sixties daytime service will remain the same along with a new set of fantastic jingles being produced over the next few weeks.

    ATLANTIS OFFSHORE

    We are in the process of finalising the agreement with our friends in Holland to bring the Jenny Benyton over to Whitstable in 2023 (2022 sadly due to the current situation in Holland will not be possible) however we have committed a six figure sum over the next 18 months for the ship to be well prepared for the 3 months off Whitstable in June/July/August 2023.

    Updates of the work will be published by both our friends in Holland and us on here during the course of next year.

    In addition to the offshore promotion which will be backed by a major London PR firm, we will be looking to expand the DAB coverage area for Atlantis along with LIVE concerts. We have also taken out a lease on a shop in Whitstable which will stock a vast range of Atlantis merchandise. Daily visits to the ship will also run throughout the summer (Weather permitting) Our crew will be seen on a regular basis (Well human seize puppet wise:) throughout the summer in the town. Harry will always be available for a football chat if you track him down.

    OTHER STATIONS

    There has been much speculation of a return of our old Cyber brands to the airways, however the new owners of the brand in Eastern European have decided that they want to develop a global Cyber Radio APP featuring Hot Hits/Rock/Russian/Latino music. This is being launched in the New Year with our  European based sales house retaining the rights to sell advertising and sponsorship.

    Finally there will be a few new surprises presenter wise on Atlantis in 2022 that I am sure you will enjoy. We are constantly being asked by some fantastic well known presenters if they can join us, we feel this is a testament to what the management team and presenters have achieved over the last few years. Atlantis has become a much loved and respected radio station for which we are all very proud.

    On behalf of the team: Andrew our Station manager and Ruth his assistant, along with our fab presenters Peter/Kevin/Dave/Ron/Roger/Rob/Steve/Dave and Bob (My name is Noakes BOB NOAKES:) and the sales and marketing guys at ESM: Andrew/Alistair/Willy/Anastasia/Lina/Olga/Julia/Jordan/Glen/Richard/Lana/Andrew No 2/Mathew and Sean.
    Not forgetting Simon and Jake who make all the fantastic commercials for our clients along with our jingles PLUS ofcourse  AMO.

    I wish you all a Happy Christmas and New Year.

    Love Peace and Kisses to you all.

    Best wishes
    Tatiana.
