Default Colin Wilson: Jack the Ripper Conference in Ipswich, 1996

We are very pleased to bring to you author Colin Wilson's talk at the first ever Jack the Ripper Conference, held in Ipswich 12-14 April, 1996. This 22 year old audience recording was rescued from a second hand bookshop by Mark Ripper and we are grateful to Mark for saving this piece of Ripperology history so that we may share it with you.



Originally recorded on a 120 minute long cassette tape- I left the tape flip around the 55 minute mark intact- and sometime later transferred to CD, this specific recording is believed to be from the collection of the late Jeremy Beadle. It is beginning to show its age, but the historical value of the talk outweighs the deteriorating quality of the audio. I applied noise reduction to eliminate a significant amount of white-noise hiss and amplified the vocals.
After so many years, the recording is in a poor state, but to my ears still listenable.

Available now to stream or download at the following link:

http://www.casebook.org/podcast/listen.html?id=200

Also in iTunes, TuneIn Radio, MixCloud and any old podcast app you can find.

Thank you again to Mark Ripper!

And thanks for listening,



JM

Hi All,

Colin Wilson was a serial believer.

He agreed with each and every theory as it came along.

Regards,

Simon

Does anyone know where in Ipswich the first conference was held? It would be ironic if it were in The Great White Horse - that's where John Harrison, of Harrison, Barber fame, ended up.

It wasn't an old building and it wasn't in the town centre but I can't remember the name of it now .
More of a typical modern hotel ,one level , lots of parking space etc
I do remember going to burger king before checking in though 😀

Did your burger have a bit of a horsey flavour?

My impression, too, Simon. He was somewhat credulous - to put it mildly - when it came to the occult and parapsychology, and perhaps this tendency infected his thinking about the Ripper case.

Still, he was never less than interesting, so many thanks to Mark Ripper and Jon Menges for making this recording available.

Hi,
Colin was a collector of theory's and stored them.
I had a correspondence with him back in 1975, he was generous with his time, and as well as the letters I received which I still have somewhere, he sent me a new publication Ripper book , as well.
He was very enthusiastic about the case, and relished new ideas.
I will find time to listen later.
Regards Richard.

It was interesting to hear this. I have a friend who was an original member of the Cloak And Dagger Club who has this talk on video. He's also got a lot of video camera footage of other events stashed away somewhere.
