Hi again everyone!

Hello Martinibomb, Chresti, Rich, Ursula, ARB :)
Avatar 12:08pm Martinibomb:

I think I read a long time ago that Esquivel did the audio for that universal tv logo you'd see at the end of tv programs.
Avatar 12:09pm Franco Twinkie:

Hi BC! Thanks for jogging my senile memory. I've been trying to remember where I saw Combustible Edison, and it just came to me - Fuzzyland! a long gone club in Los Angeles that use to be a bowling ally. Now if I could just remember the year.
Avatar 12:09pm BC Sterrett:

I wouldn't doubt it
Avatar 12:11pm BC Sterrett:

I've heard Quiet Village so much that I'll only play it if the magazine makes reference to it directly. ha
Avatar 12:12pm Martinibomb:

It's hard to ever get tired of. IF you didn't play it, that would be like a reggae DJ refusing to play Bob Marley. Hahah
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12pm Otis Fodder:

Tuned in, just rolled on to the computer. Hi BC and all! Hope you had a grand show Jan!
Avatar 12:12pm Franco Twinkie:

I never get tired of Quite Village.
Avatar 12:13pm BC Sterrett:

Good cause here it is again :)
Avatar 12:14pm BC Sterrett:

The first time I've played these versions back to back
Avatar 12:15pm Franco Twinkie:

This is the cover I will see as the lights are going out.
Avatar 12:16pm BC Sterrett:

This section focuses a lot on Les Baxter especially since he had just passed away at the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29pm chresti:

So, being wrapped in plastic gives you peace of mind?
Avatar 12:30pm Martinibomb:

The lady I used to buy my copies of cool & strange from is now one our city commissioner's :-D aahhh portland
Avatar 12:31pm BC Sterrett:

I had to order mine through the mail, since no one carried it here
Avatar 12:32pm BC Sterrett:

Oops, botched the end of that one
Avatar 12:33pm Ursula1000:

were Cool and Strange and RE Search related in any way?
Avatar 12:35pm BC Sterrett:

Yes, Dana Countryman started CSM because he had wished that RE/Search had started their own magazine. So he took it in his own hands.
Avatar 12:35pm Ursula1000:

ah cool
Avatar 12:36pm Martinibomb:

I didn't know that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm Rich in Washington:

Wow. I didn't know there was any kind of connection between CSM and RE/Search.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm Rich in Washington:

That first ten issues on PDF thing that Dana's offering is really worth it. It turns out it's the exact spread of issues I was missing!
Avatar 12:40pm BC Sterrett:

The PDF of all other issues are coming out soon!
Avatar 12:41pm BC Sterrett:

I have Dana's remaining issues of the physical issues.
Should anyone want some, send them my way :)
Avatar 12:42pm BC Sterrett:

oops, the remaining archive I mean
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Rich in Washington:

yeah. That, RE/Search, Michael Weldon's Psychotronic Video, - and a little before that, Forced Exposure - that was my primary outlet in those pre-internet days.
Avatar 12:44pm Ursula1000:

oh totally. RE/Search was a HUGE gateway.
Avatar 12:44pm Martinibomb:

Same here Rich! I was still down in Roseburg getting psychotronic video/forced exposure etc. in highschool Lol
Avatar 12:45pm Martinibomb:

used to have to mail order comics until I was 14 and someone opened a comics shop finally!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm Rich in Washington:

The Tower Records in Beaverton Mall was my oasis from living in a backwards-ass hillbilly town. I'd stock up on magazines, zines and as many import records as I could afford.
Avatar 12:47pm BC Sterrett:

RE/Search changed my life as well
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:50pm Rich in Washington:

I still have all of mine. But I still wasn't prepared for what a life changing thing that the Incredibly Strange Music books were. I really kicked my cratedigging thing into overdrive. I sort of felt stupid obsessively looking for and buying all these weird records before that.
Avatar 12:56pm Franco Twinkie:

Since I lived in L.A. the thrift stores were full of this stuff as well as dishes from outer space and sport shirts that looked like wallpaper, all for next to nothing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm Otis Fodder:

When the 1st ISM book came out I felt a kinship with a mass of people, where my tastes for school band to baxter to say, whistling records was meeting someone on a blue moon at a gathering.
Avatar 12:57pm Ursula1000:

fab show---catch ya on the b-side
Avatar 12:58pm BC Sterrett:

I didn't really start collecting vinyl seriously until I discovered Friendly Persuasion on the internet (Pre-Cool and Strange) and then the RE/Search books.
Avatar 12:59pm BC Sterrett:

Stay tuned for Sounds Spectacular up next!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm Otis Fodder:

Before '94 with the first ISM book, in the early 90s, I did get my fill meeting people via Factsheet 5. More print, but there were some great connections with like-minded musical madcaps. Did not properly listen to FMU until 1999 when I could access the web stream (while in Seattle at the time). Previous to that ordered a number of things from The Catalog of Curiosities.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00pm chresti:

Thanks BC! There's that Mark Ryden cover again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00pm Jan Turkenburg:

Thanks BC That was enjoyable!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00pm Otis Fodder:

I love that Baxter comp. Art to selections.

Thanks BC!
