Radar Station Overview

A 4 track EP of songs recorded at the Avalon Ballroom in 1966 (the exact date is unknown) for the radio station KSAN pressed on blue vinyl with luxury wrap round sleeve. Recording is very good
stereo with Beefheart introducing “Evil” cut saying “We got a request for a Howlin’ Wolf number”.

A great cartoon label too although the group named is ‘The Soots’ – a pre-Magic Band collaboration
between the young Zappa and Vliet.


All these tunes are now legitimately available on Grow Fins (Rarities 1965-1982)

A fifth ‘lost’ Avalon track known as ‘Blues Jam’, an instrumental with some storming harp playing from Don, eventually found a legitimate release of sorts on the Railroadism CD.



  • 198? US(?) vinyl EP on Blue Desert 1
