House of Games: "Bob Smith" con's piracy

"It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."
--William Shakespeare, The Scottish Play

The "Bob Smith" versus Doc John incident needs little embellishment to be amongst the most amusing and bemusing episodes in the annals of pirate lore and war. But what would be the fun in telling it straight?

The feud also lends credence to the reports that a prominent FRN figure and veteran shortwave radio pirate, best known as Commander Bunny of WBNY, has at least tried to expose people he considered enemies of his definition of "good pirates" - more than once - and intended to have Doc John silenced by reporting the operator of Radio Yellowknife (later Northern Relay Service) to Canadian radio organizations.

As a sage and fair minded veteran observer* of the shortwave pirate radio scene alluded to on his recent blog musings, this tale approaches Shakespearean levels of tragedy. Or, if your taste runs more towards dark humour, the plot is more a tragicomedy or revenge play comparable to Titus Andronicus.

If you are somehow invested in the notion of the "integrity" of shortwave pirate radio scene (whatever the hell that means), it is a cautionary Tale of Radio Paranoia, epitomizing hubris**, played by vain warriors and secret spies, villains and knaves, rascals and sockpuppets, as recounted by a jester and troll.

And if you don't have a pony in this race or dog in this hare-coursing, it's a lulzy comedy. Unless you're the hare. In which case I reckon the hare gets fucked. Proper fucked.

"It's called a confidence game. Why? Because you give me your confidence? No. Because I give you mine."
--House of Games

Reexamining the timeline of related incidents revealed an orchestrated effort by the man behind the Commander Bunny facade to undermine another pirate radio operator at any cost.

In this Tale of Radio Paranoia we'll summarize the prelude and focus on the "Bob Smith" incident. A follow up Tale will cover more supporting details about the prelude and aftermath, including Commander Bunny's online and on-air slandercasting as His Hareness resorted to playing the NAMBLA card in a last ditch effort to silence a perceived enemy pirate.

Au Revoir, Radio Yellowknife
A couple of weeks ago, mid-July, we heard that in early 2011 someone had attempted to set up Canadian shortwave pirate radio operator Doc John (then of Radio Yellowknife relay service) to be busted. At that time John Poet (of The Crystal Ship) hadn't yet announced his May 2011 social call from the FCC. But the FCC notice would appear on their database only days later, towards the third week of July.

Wars, and rumors of attention whores began to smoulder like a slow match in Blackbeard's chin whiskers. Within hours gossip of snitches in britches sparkled like a fast fuse snaking towards the powder room.

Sure enough, looking back, the Radio Yellowknife relay service offered by Doc John starting in the autumn of 2010 seemed to have vanished by the third week of January 2011. Note this log on the Fabulous Rabbit Nuthugger's personal vanity site:

"Just tried to email Radio Yellowknife but it bounced with a 'no such address" message. Tried blog url and got 'blog not found'.

"Did someone receive The Knock?"
Posted January 20, 2011 12:00 on the FRN

Rumors emerged that an American posing as a Canadian shortwave listener under the pseudonym "Bob Smith" had attempted to expose Doc John and silence his station earlier this year. We were skeptical. But after reading the e-mail exchanges and intact headers, with IP information indicating the location of "Bob Smith", it clearly seemed to be some sort of attempt at a con game... or worse.

"Oh, you're a bad pony. And I'm not gonna bet on you."
--House of Games

What's up, Doc?
According to Doc John, his Radio Yellowknife station was the subject of a complaint from a "Bob Smith" in late 2010 or early 2011:

"...under the name Bob Smith at bobsmith6955@yahoo (he) got a hold of the Ham radio club in Yellowknife and complained about RF interference in his house and also said he had contacted the DOT as well as CBC about me.

"This prompted a witch hunt in Yellowknife that I heard of second hand when I was doing a web search on Radio Yellowknife and came across an article done in the Club rag. (See: The Ensign, volume 4, issue 1, 2011. --GF)

"When I contacted them under another name they gave me the name Bob Smith and e-mail addy... I also shortly thereafter was contacted by a CBC reporter wanting to do a story on RY."
--Doc John

After that incident, Doc John closed the gmail account for Radio Yellowknife and reemerged shortly thereafter as Northern Relay Service.

"Bob Smith" e-mails Doc John
(The following is a verbatim exchange of e-mails from February 9-10, 2011, between "Bob Smith" and Doc John. A few pertinent lines or phrases will be emphasized to clarify the connection to the legendary shortwave pirate radio operator known as Commander Bunny. --GF)

(Update 7/19/12: "Bob Smith" initiated these faux-friendly emails the day *after* he'd already emailed the Yellowknife Amateur Radio Society complaining about Northern Relay Service.  The Lagomurph's complaint wasn't due to anything that happened in this email exchange with Doc John.  Murphy had already decided to snitch out the "rival" pirate.  This entire email exchange was an attempt to get Northern Relay Service on air to make it easier for YARS or Canadian authorities to DF the station. --GF)

To: northernrelayservice@gmail.com

Dude when you going to be on the air again? Lethbridge is quiet without your signal filling up my radio. I may have to take a huge bong hit, and go over to the Mormon Temple and zone out!

Are you going to be on this weekend? And if so when and what frequency?


(Being the cautious type, Doc John checks the headers in the e-mail from "Bob Smith". Bob implies he's in Lethbridge, Canada. IP indicates Bob is from Newport News, Virginia in the USA***. According to sources who checked the return addresses for their 2008 ebay purchases of WBNY items, Newport News, VA, is the location of the ebay vendor who sold WBNY memorabilia. --GF)

Greetings BOB;

We here at the northern relay service appreciate that the only things that can replace our signal is pot and Jesus ( be careful combining the two). But our signal like the rapture will be announced by a voice from the air ,and if you tune somewhere between 6.930 and 6.940 sometime in the early evening you will have a chance of hearing us. However the north has been under the blanket of solar wind ejected from a coronal hole in the sun this past week and being environmentally conscious we do not even try . It would simply be entertainment to alien culture many light years from now..

But now that you are on our e-mail list we will alert you if we go on . But for now enjoy cruising the pirate bands,but we recommend getting your rabies shots as there is a scare out there about rabid rabbits.

Until then fly, a kite ,and keep your toupee glue handy, you are in Lethbridge!

We will be trying this weekend

Doc John


(Note the "rabid rabbits" remark. Will Commander Bunny take the bait? --GF)

Don't be too hard on the rabbit, he's been around a long time and given us some pretty good shows. But I anxiously await your relays. You are right, conditions have been awful of late.

Pot and Jesus is a nice mix. Both can be appreciated.

Thanks for not making me have to hang out at the Mormon Temple. That's about the only thing happening here in town. Thanks for putting me on the mailing list. Keep up the good work dude!

Doc John:

What got you into Pirate Radio?

My Dad and Grand-dad got me into listening. I've got an Icom-735 but haven't done any transmitting for years. Too many Industry Canada cars running around here.

My Dad used to listen to Pirates on the shortwave when I was a kid. So did my Grand-Dad. In fact, I remember being a kid, maybe 10 or so and listening to Commander Bunny back in the 70's. That pirate has been on for a long time. Also listened to Voice of the Voyager. Didn't really hear any real Canadian Pirates until the late 80's when CSIC came on, and he was out East in Ontario. This guy Poet on the FRN has also been around since the 80's. Listened to him with his Crystal Ship station.

I take it by your posts that you're up in the Yukon or NT. Great place to be to be a Pirate. Way too many people here. And its gotten worse over the years. No offense to the Mormons but that Temple here brings them in by the droves at certain times of the year. Makes poor little Lethbridge a traffic jam!

Well, keep up the good work, can't wait to hear you again this weekend. Can you do the Voice of Next Thursday again? Love that guy. Aussie isn't he?

Stay warm, thanks again
Bob Smith
Lethbridge - actually on the road heading west towards Waterton


(Okay, bear with my interpretation of the smoke signals. Bob Smith reinforces his Lethridge, Canada, QTH lie. He also implies he was a pirate and name-drops other famous pirates, presumably to gain Doc John's trust, which he follows through by casually trying to get Doc John to specify his location. Then he mentions Voice of Next Thursday, one of several programmers - including me - who were caught in the middle of Commander Bunny's invented and unnecessary feud and demands for exclusive loyalty to WBNY's relay service. --GF)

It is a wonderful aspect of radio to be sure . As far as what got me into radio , I was a broadcast engineer for the Signal corp way back in the day. When I retired from military life I got bored and missed playing with radio. I'm a radio democracy freak at heart. When the idea of pirate radio came up with some friends over coffee we jumped and the rest is history.

Yes the commander has been around for a while ,but lately everyone has been commenting that he is loosing it. Not much on the FRN but on IRC etc, privately. Me thinks the first class stamp trade is good, and commercialism has corrupted his soul.

Unfortunately the commander scared our Good friend Voice of Next Thursday into going exclusive with him and we are looking to fill the vacuum left by Gabriel Symes the genius behind it all. We hope he gets around to changing his mind soon. We will respect his decision.

take care and enjoy the airwaves.

Dude, you didn't let me know you were on last night. Just saw the logs! Bummer. Let me know!

I don't get involved in all that inside stuff, just enjoy listening to my Sony 2010 here, got a nice longwire out the back window!

Keep it up. enjoy hearing you Doc.



Thus endeth that particular e-mail exchange between "Bob Smith" and Doc John.

"You see, in my trade, this is called - what you did - you cracked out of turn. Huh? You see? You crumbed the play."
--House of Games

The results of Doc John flipping "Bob Smith's" con game around?

Within hours, ComBun sockpuppet Ballistic Beans takes the bait and runs with it, foaming at the mouth: "IRC the destruction of Pirate Radio - The FRN Grapevines"

ComBun's less acerbic consensus suckerpuppet, Mosby, chimes in with a sucker's 'tell': "Dumb monkey relays - The FRN Grapevines"

Up next... Commander Bunny takes the bait, snares himself, and goes full
suicide bomber. In the process, he reveals the extent of his decade-old sockpuppetry, irreparably splinters the web's oldest shortwave pirate radio site, connects every dot between his various online and real life personas, and, perhaps most damaging, undermines the fragile foundation of trust right at the time when, coincidentally, the FCC has renewed enforcement activity against shortwave pirates.

Moral of the Story Thus Far
Moral? In pirate radio? You're kidding right? And by you, I mean me. But what did we learn today, kids?

Don't hook with a hooker. If your opponent's name is Joe Frazier, he's probably better at it than you are.

Don't try to con a con man. If he's any good at it, he's already sussed you out and planned counter moves.

Don't troll with an e-mail account that reveals your location. And if you've burned through so many aliases and e-mail accounts that you can't keep track of them, maybe - and I'm going out on a limb here with a really extreme suggestion, probably too unrealistic but let's just ponder it a moment, carefully and soberly - maybe, just maybe, it's time to STOP BEING A DICK. You might be surprised how many people actually enjoy your company and creative output without the nonstop dickery.

*That is not sarcasm. I'm sincere in that statement.

**I don't mean hubris in the watered down contemporary sense of someone suffering from excessive pride or arrogance. I'm talking about football sack dance hubris. I mean the kind of hubris shown by Achilles dragging Hector's corpse around the battlefield behind his chariot. The death of Achilles through his only vulnerable spot (at the hands of Paris, who was far from brave or heroic) is the implied judgment of the gods for hubris, which was once considered a crime in Greece. It's closer to the real concept of karma, as opposed to the bunnyman's concept of karma, which he mistakes for revenge and vendettas.

Finally, a tip o' the animated top hat to Evil Elvis for the "con's piracy" title idea. Evil Elvis has a genius for portmanteaus, such as "dirtfed" to describe a drifty, distorted signal.


  1. So, that's how that went down. Interesting how the Sockmaster doesn't like being caught in his own lint trap. And, as usual, when caught in his own deceit, he lies, denies and blames everyone else but himself!

  2. That's why he's the Wiz.

  3. There's still so much more to this storey I don't know if it'll ever ALL come out.
    The sad part is, as was mentioned earlier, is that CB was/is a respected producer of entertaining content. It's a shame that he also thrives on and enjoys stirring up controversy. But not just in pirate radio. If you dig deep enough and go far enough back you find that this is the pattern with him in everything he does on line. He ENJOYS it. And that is, well, just sad.

  4. You know what I think is wrong with CB and Kracker? They're both short........ in the head,in stature,and probably in the pants.

    A lifetime of "Duh!","You're too short for this ride,Sir.",and "Is it in yet?" will make a fella testy.

  5. O-ho! So these are the infamous Emails where Doc John 'heaped abuse' upon Commander Bunny, which CB referenced as 'proof' that NRS was 'waging a smear campaign' against CB? That CB first offered to produce as proof... and then refused to produce when I finally asked to see them? That's it? Emails to one person? He made it sound like a mass mailing...

    And, via his now-outed Sockpuppet 'Mosby' who posted claiming to be the recipient of these Emails--- he inadvertently proves who 'BobSmith' is beyond doubt: CB/PM/JMG

    His refusal to produce these vaunted Emails for me, after offering them, was the final straw that helped me realize that his campaign against NRS was nothing but a pack of lies.

  6. Hey Guise

    Great job SIR !

    Really enjoyed getting the story out there for all to read. Couldn't have done a better job.What better way to get it out there than with Pirate Radios top journalist.

    If any of my behavior has seemed rash or rude when directed towards the rabbit then perhaps you will have now have a little understanding.

    Other than fools like this the Free Radio scene is where its at.

    Doc John

    Ps Here is the link to the song which I sent him at the end of that exchange. Written by a mentally ill person,fittingly sent to one


  7. Excellent job keeping it real Guise!

    The same passion that created the hobby to fight control of expression or the use of oppression is still alive; whether it’s against the FCC or the Bunny mafia!

    Long live Pirate Radio!


    This pretty much says it all. For all the discomfort this entire ordeal has caused some (and entertainment it has provided others), this simple statement might have prevented the web's oldest pirate site from listing so badly she might finally roll.

    There's been some discussion of FRN moderators on FRC. If the "Cat Herders" had just occasionally opened a can of "STOP BEING A DICK", we could have avoided so much. I think of all the newcomers that were run off because they said slightly the wrong thing like "I have a ham license" or "your audio's not up to snuff".

    Great commentary as usual Guise. I laugh while I shake my head.

  9. JTA still refuses to believe that CB has done anything wrong. I wonder how much of that is because once he does that, he has to accept that he shares at least some of the blame for not a at least trying to stop CB. He and the other moderators were enablers.

    Denial is a wonderful thing, isn't it?

  10. JTA, Cosmik, and the rest of the mod/admin team had plenty of chances to nip this in the bud.

    If they can't honestly see the trouble and problems the Bunny has stirred up/caused for himself, they are also part of the problem.

    JTA is as deluded as the Bunny if he thinks "nothing happened" and we're all just ranting lunatics.

    I wonder what JTA's rationale is for our behavior then.

  11. That song Doc John referred to, "Come Little Rabbit" by Akmal Shaikh, and especially the story behind it, is perfect accompaniment for this whole bizarre tale. Alternately tragic and hilarious, and so-bad-it's-good in the grand tradition of an Ed Wood movie.

    But now that damned song is stuck in my head!

  12. Sorry about that it is worse than some viruses out there today. Not quite as bad as myxomatosis though.
    I prescribe a bong hit and heading down to the local Mormon Temple.

    Doc John

  13. OMG ! I just went to Ebay to see where the seller was actually out of to confirm The story and all WBNY merchandise has disappeared.I am 100% sure though that the seller was in NewPort News ,va. I always thought it was the name of the seller not the address,hilarious.LOL Looks like CB is getting good use out of that broom,and old mattress.

  14. JTA has been friends with Pat since John ran the Hilo drop 20 odd years ago. It's tough to throw that out the window over a another pirate feud.

    A rundown on the current leadership of the FRN.

    Coz? A little dictator wannabe with his head up his ass. Major figure in the Bowling League. He let this shit get way out of hand over the years. Bows to the will of Murphy in all things.

    LCee,a good guy both online and in real life. If the FRN is going to survive,LCee needs to be running the show.

    Liquid Radio? A division of the Bowling League.

    Ganja? Bowling League member,but another good guy.

    Murphy? Supposedly gone,but still runs the show,with his sidekick, Pauly Wanna Kracker as an enforcer.

    JTA? If he likes you,you're golden. If not he's a devious little critter that will smile at you while he's sticking the knife in your back. Firmly in Murphy's hip pocket and very tight with Kracker.

    John Cruzan? Hasn't been seen or heard from in years,other than the report after the Joplin tornado's. Hasn't had an active role on the FRN since roughly '01. He turned the asylum over to the crew that runs it now.

    Any questions?

  15. "Any questions?"

    What good are friends if they abandon you at the first little sign of insanity?

    Or the second... or third...

  16. Maybe good friends would persuade you to get the help which you so clearly and desperately need!

  17. I agree Guise....you need some serious help and all this bringing truth to light and finding the perfect approach to removing the layers of BS is such a crime!

    Your prescription is 3 shots of cactus juice, a fine blunt and more blogging.

  18. Ugh, didn't mean Guise needed help. I meant, 'good friends' would have persuaded CB to get help-- and by 'help' I don't mean thugs.

  19. "Ugh, didn't mean Guise needed help..."

    Oh, but I do. My sock drawer is a mess. The tube socks are the worst, gossiping all night.

  20. yeah a question: what about bad andy? he acts a lot like kracker, and seems to do dirty work for kracker and CB.

  21. "...what about bad andy? he acts a lot like kracker..."

    BA, a mere follower? Heavens, no!. He's a mad scientist like Boomer, quietly perfecting their Animal Modulated and Andy Modulated mind control emitters. Rumors say once he gets his hands on that legendary cache of Westminsters hidden in the moors, we're all doomed!

  22. Andy has been fed a line of crap by Kracker and his pals. He doesn't know what the real deal is. He'll wise up like other folks who have been used by Murphy The Untouchable and his gang over the years.

    The Southern Relay Service was on tonight "relaying" WBNY. Murphy can't stop playing pirate even after he's been outed for the squealer he is.

    Awww Patty boy,you can run but you can't hide.

  23. Never seen such hatred and bitterness spewed into the pirate community. Never. The major pirate blogs and boards, the leading pirates and DXers, just want to have fun with pirate radio, and you and your sockmaster Poet have poisoned that.

    Why don't you two crawl back into your hole? The rest of us are tired of your lies, tired of the false controversies, tired of the character assassination. Take up another hobby, like astronomy, and let the rest of us get back to having fun with pirate radio.

  24. Mr. Anonymous FURBAL,

    The Dxers & pirates want to have fun, but you've made it difficult over time by exposing people's identities along with their families on the FRN (Spore incident), attack other relay services with accusations of being child molesters (Northern Relay Service) and ultimately snitch other pirates to the FCC simply because you don't like them (Yellow Knife & Poet)...and you were the one that got caught using sockpuppets (and later admitted to it on your own blog!). Why get upset with everyone for holding you to the truth?

    So why don't YOU crawl back in your hole and take up another hobby so the pirate community can get back to having some fun for once!

  25. lol ... brave CB sneaks in at 6:11 am to add a comment.

    "let the rest of us get back to having fun with pirate radio" ... forget it, we know what you call "fun". Your days of ratting out and attacking pirates unopposed are over.

    "The major pirate blogs and boards" ... do you mean frn?, which you have dragged into the sewer and everyone has abandoned?

    "Why don't you two crawl back into your hole? The rest of us are tired of your lies," ... perfect advice for YOU! (and take crackho with you.)

  26. Sounds like Beans to me. He's the whinier of the sockpuppets.

    At least Radio Bob had the common decency to walk away when he was exposed as a snitch. Da Bunny obviously doesn't have the integrity of Radio Bob.

  27. "Never seen such hatred or bitterness?" I am guessing that the Snitch Puppet King has a convenient case of amnesia, in terms of the malice spewed forth on his blog.
    Again, lie, deny or project is the mantra of the Commander, his sock puppets or his meat puppets.
    (Second verse, same as the first!)
    Besides, wasn't the Revolting Rodent claiming to be Guise a while ago? Keep your story straight! Wait a second, I am talking about Commander Sock Puppet, who can't let the facts stand in the way of a good story.

  28. I lol'd at Anon's August 6, 2011 6:11 AM comment, mostly because it could very well be a troll post from a friend of this blog, just having fun trying to sound like His Hareness.

    Since I don't track IP's here I don't know who writes which anonymous comment unless they e-mail me privately.

    For that matter, it could have been me... since Guise Faux is also Commander Bunny. Maybe I'm writing all of these anonymous comments!

    Talk to the hand, GF, talk to the sock-covered hand...

  29. I saw the FRN thread that was the start of the CB/NRS fight: NRS offered to relay, which enraged Beans into a bizarre attack claiming that somehow the offer was an insult to all other relay services, including his own, aka as WBNY. I understood that.

    What I've been puzzled about is what set CB/PM off about Radio Yellowknife. Did CB just decide to snitch on him with no public provocation, or was there something that I missed, on the FRN or behind the scenes?

    Great work, by the way, here AND on the WBNY blog!

  30. Radio Yellowknife was never on the FRN. But did start to offer relays before transforming into NRS. Primarily Voice of Next Thursday,and Radio Junk.So was technically the enemy as far as CB was concerned. Though he never kicked up a fuss online about RY,and went to the club,industry Canada,and CBC quietly. When RY "disappeared" no fuss was made. Then when NRS came on the FRN all hell broke loose,and CB pulled out the stops,when he realized it was the same person,and people started to get sock puppet QSLs.

  31. Looking at the "IRC the destruction of Pirate Radio - The FRN Grapevines” post, it’s crazy how many sock puppets Pat uses to respond in this thread:

    Commander Bunny, Beans, Mosby, Thumper, Bouncer, lovemyradios, 2531 and himself. Funny enough, kracker defends his own IRC against beans who then makes exception for the bowling league, but kracker doesn’t seem to be aware of who’s running the puppet show!

  32. That's an interesting point. There is evidence in other venues that multiple IPs were "sharing" sock identities; the presumption was that these were the various members of the Blowing League.

    Maybe in the case of the NRS thread on the FRN CB just lost control of himself, and his vituperation spasmed forth through the various sock orifices before he had a chance to coordinate with his dimwitted little buddy.

  33. I have been following the scene for quite a few years. The one guy that always annoyed me, was Pat Murphy. While posting under that name, he was the good guy who always claimed to put the hobby first. However, it was so obvious he had all these alter-egos going about slamming other pirates, or self promoting his various projects. This goes back before the Radio Bob incident.

    As time progressed things got worse. When the bunny came around, I laughed it off at first. But the same joke got so tired and overplayed. Every time I stopped by the frn, all I saw was monkey this and monkey that. Boring. I am gone.

    Then, add KKKracker and the Jr. Mafia to Pats multiple personality disorder, and things became downright malicious.

    I used to listen all the time and even do some transmitting myself. Now, I have no interest in either.

    If this has what become of pirate radio, I want no part of it.

    Besides KKKracker is so unstable, he will most likely destroy his own "infamouse" crew from within anyway.

    Think I'll grab a beer and make some popcorn for the show.

    Keerist!!! What a stack of shit!

    I wonder when Pat The Bunny will lead us in prayer? Prayer,after all,is the last refuge of a scoundrel.

  37. CB's latest blog posts show how he's just barely clutching at the edge of reality. Notice how no one ever posts a comment; either he is deleting them as fast as they come in, or no one cares to comment, either due to lack of interest, or fear of IP tracking. It's not even clear that anyone (except me) is even reading the blogs.

    I can just imagine him, clad in a ratty terrycloth bathrobe and pajamas, old slippers with crushed down heels on his feet, with his nose pressed to the screen and jaws clenched (when he's not taking a hit). He's muttering "Guise, Poet, IRC, I'll destroy them all!!!" while the spittle pools uncontrollably on his keyboard.

    In fact, here's a recent picture, showing just how down and out he is: http://tinyurl.com/4lxryvg

  38. My goodness! The Bunny is so divorced from reality, that reality is seeking alimony from the Snitch Puppet King.

  39. He blew it. Details to come...

  40. I wish I had captured the first "Bigley/FCC" letter he posted; it was full of cut and paste errors, which he appears to be trying to fix. It's still not right, though. I suspect he's cutting and pasting from his own correspondence with the FCC.

  41. Desperate Lies of a Desperate Snitch

    @last anon:
    Yeah, I was wondering about that myself. Did he really tell them I was "a treasonous voice of dissent"? LOL!

    And, to blow the whole frameup, (after all that work?) on such an elementary factual error...

    "Methinks the Commander is Loosin It"

  42. With apologies to Poet:

    Where have all the bunnies gone?
    Long time passing
    Where have all his blogs gone?
    Long time ago
    Where have all the bunnies gone?
    The fans have kicked them every one
    When will they ever learn?
    When will they ever learn?
