Featuring Bob Mielke, Frank “Big Boy” Goudie, Bill Carter, Bunky Colman, Bill Napier, Pete Allen and Dick Oxtot

Unique performances from unique performers.

There is no evidence that the music released on FJAR was produced using Stan Page's monster Ampex rig, pictured here. 

But it is possible since he was a noted photographer, jazz recordist and audio enthusiast who was a Bearcats fan.

Sadly, Page lost all his tapes, photos, negatives, and presumably his Ampexes, in the 1991 Oakland Fire.
