Some of you might recall that it was my very good online friend, Jordan of The House of Googie, who inspired me to begin creating what was to become The Atomic Hit Parade feature for KoHoSo Radio 66 before Live365 stole the last two weeks of its life (not to mention my money).
As everybody except their authors hates the seemingly never-ending trend of online recipes that come with a story longer than War and Peace at the top and your finger has cramped up before you finally scroll down enough to find out how to make the darn thing, I’m going to give you the PDF version […]
In what will be my final big post about KoHoSo Radio 66, the big item is to show you what were the fifty favorite songs chosen by Miss KoKo, Jordan of The House of Googie, and me for the feature that was going to be called The Atomic Hit Parade.
For those unaware of this news, KoHoSo Radio 66 is now offline and will not be coming back.
This simple postcard has been one of my favorites ever since I first saw it about six years ago. There’s something about these nighttime photos of businesses with nobody around that, for whatever odd reason, give me feelings of great comfort. I can almost smell the fabric softener in the night air.
This is also one of my top five favorite ads I have ever seen since I began seriously collecting them in 2011. To me, that is as perfect of a 1950’s female face illustration as I’ve ever seen.
Upon finding this photograph, I realized it was a good time to once again post my reminder about all the retro/vintage/Americana material on this website.
So simple yet so effective.
The photograph above was the first post ever made by "klappersacks" on Tumblr. As something he found on the Library of Congress website, it is the source of his best-known online name.
Over the past several days, I have tried many times to not only make a decision regarding my existence as an online curator of retro/vintage/Americana material but to also explain that decision.
