Other thank yous:

Countless others have offered advice, comments, support, material, and assistance with The Radar Station since it was created. I would like to make a special mention of these few, without whom…

  • Derek Laskie for several years serving as our news editor, sniffng out great stories and trivia of all kinds.
  • Conor McMahon for hosting the Fire Party discussion list.
  • James Silberbauer for writing a very nifty utility to help me keep up to date with the old guestbook and traders’ message board entries.
  • Dave Pearce and Mark Sheppard for hosting www.beefheart.com in the early years and providing helpful answers to my stupid questions.
  • Mike Sheckett for all his work on Filtered Thru Dust Speakers.
  • Justin Sherrill for constant advice and assistance in the early years, and also for sending me an unbelievable amount of material, including the contents of his entire website.
  • Brainpang for articles, tapes, friendly support, rallying the troops and even a few choice duplicates from his Beefheart singles collection.
  • Rob Fawcett for his time as the Radar Station’s news editor.
  • Benjamin Horrendous for lending me his rare Beefheart videos and his hosting of the excellent Fire Party People pages.
  • Charles Holzhauer for a big box worth of excellent live tapes and useful articles.
  • Michael Scott for all his work slaving over a hot scanner. The paintings gallery would be a lot smaller without Michael’s help.
  • Detlef Juergens for his help scanning paintings and offering useful corrections, helping to make the site more accurate than it would otherwise be.
  • Stewart Osborne for his invaluable support, enthusiasm and stupid sense of humour.
  • David Naughton for his much needed proof reading, error checking and general helpful advice.
  • Ness for never once complaining when I stick the Captain in the stereo yet again (except first thing in the morning).

Donors:

Several visitors have also helped out with financial donations when money was tight to pay for server space, telephone bills, software, etc. A very big thank you to these people without whom there would be no Radar Station:

Bruno Ghezzi, Steve Froy, Hans Van Hulst, Stewart Osborne, Brainpang, Rick Snow, Richard Rainey, Dave Speake, John McLaughlin and Edward Coulson.

Many thanks, all.
