All ready for the 72nd anniversary of Don Van Vliet’s birth, I am delighted to present an all new Radar Station website.
Apart from the content (much of which has been expanded, revised and brought up to date but in essence remains the same) it’s entirely new: new design, new structure, new way of doing things.
I do hope you like it.
It’s been the product of about 18 months of incessant clicking whenever I have been able to around work, family and general life stuff. The new site currently contains a massive 2,610 items which perhaps helps to explain just why it’s taken me so long to get this far.
I’ve felt for a long time that while the old site was adequate 15 years ago when it first went online, it now just looks like a 15 year old website and that’s not a fitting way to remember the unique music, painting, words and personality of Don Van Vliet. To make matters worse, the state of the old site was actually deterring me from making many updates: why bother when it’s just going to get lost in the big pit of a very tired looking site?
I hope that isn’t going to happen any more.
I think this is a considerable improvement, but there’s still quite a long way to go. Still to do:
I hope to gradually put these problems right over the coming months along with any other snags which crop up. If you spot anything which seems wrong in any way at all which is not on the above list please do let me know.
So that’s the bad stuff, what about the good? I’ll let you find that for yourselves!
Thanks all for your support over the last 15 years, here’s to the next 15.
