Ronan O'Rahilly was an Irish businessman best known for the creation of the offshore radio station, Radio Caroline, and the man who convinced George Lazenby to give up the role of British Agent James Bond after only one film. Prior to his involvement with Radio Caroline, O'Rahilly ran the Scene club in London's Soho district and managed a number of pop music artists, including Georgie Fame and Alexis Korner. He recorded a Georgie Fame record on his own independent label, unheard of at the time. He later became involved in the production of a number of films, including as executive producer on the Marianne Faithfull film, Girl on a Motorcycle and "Two Virgins" featuring John Lennon and Yoko Ono. He was born on 21 May 1940.
