RADAR RECORDS
*************

Radar Rec. was created by Jake Riviera (born Andrew Jakeman) . That was why
both Nick Lowe and Elvis Costello left Stiff Records. We should remember the
contributions of the rest of the staff , including Andrew Lauder , Martin
Davis and Tim Read , all whom were veterans of the UK branch of Liberty / UA
Records.
The official name of the company was Radarscope Records Ltd. , and some
releases listed Radarscope as the label , but others used the label name
Radar Records with credits reading "Radarscope Records Ltd. Trading as Radar
Records in Association With WEA Records Ltd. , A Warner Communications Co.
