Thanks for the brain-melting post again TC.


Because of your blog posts, I very much look forward to Thursday fortnights.


The non-alien dude on the Astounding Science Fiction cover is definitely into steroids. I hope the story is as interesting. I remember years back in the late 80s early 90s the book shop on lower Fifth avenue (can't recall the name - where all the NYU kids got there books) had a used shop on the west side of the street. They had all these pulp fiction paperbacks in there and were charging like $25 a pop because the art became hip again. Crazy how stuff recycles itself.


Thanks again for another amazing post. Keep up the excellent work/sifting, TC

Thanks for mentioning my old 1st solo album "Symbolism" and the 2 songs from it "The Birds" and "Sense of Real". I agree the production wasn't that great (or the slow drum machine wasn't best) but that's what I had to work with at that point :) I try to improve as I go along and now I am up to album 14 :) entitled "Epiphany"...in which I got brave and did 2 Beatles covers :) All the best regards, Rick Cuevas, Palo Alto, CA (also a longtime member of the band Zru Vogue)

Near the top of one of your web pages, I see a photo of several racks of boxed (and unboxed) audio tapes. That's how it might look to most folks, but as I look at the photos, what I see is gold. If that were my own collection, I'd love to be going through them, hoping to digitize, catalog, and share the contents. And don't forget to back-up all that material, too.

I came upon your site quite by accident. Nostalgic as I am, I was recently inspired by the voice of the announcer for a radio PSA that a local station has been airing in recent weeks. I recognized the voice and I even remember the face that goes with the voice, but I had forgotten the announcer's name, unfortunately. Remembering that this unrecalled personality also hosted game shows, I screened hundreds of photos of game show hosts until finally finding a photo of the gentleman whose voice and face I remembered ... which I finally realized belong to Mr. Jack Narz.

However, I'm truly perplexed. I'd bet a month's pay that the PSA I've recently been hearing (April 2013) on WMAL Radio is voice-overed by Mr. Narz. However, I was shocked to learn today that Mr. Narz passed away in 2008. I have the time and patience, so I intend to look into this. I hope I might be able to catch that PSA they've recently been airing with the intention of definitely determining whether it's voiced by Jack Narz.

As I discovered your site only a few moments ago, I haven't really begun to explore it yet. Don't be surprise if I return to comment further.

Thanks very much for sharing "your gold" with the world.

Wow! I've been looking for that Rick Cuevas "The Birds" song since 1984. Of course, I was spelling it "Quavis". The Bay Area's THE QUAKE radio station played it on their show EARLY TREMORS when it first came out. I have the tape somewhere but just ran across an old list of songs to find while I was moving and decided to use the power of the internet to find it. Thanks again!
