You might remember the old fanzines that you would find in record stores in the pre digital music days. Underground publications with practically every subject covered and almost any opinion represented. This week we speak to a man who had one of the most popular fanzines in the nineties and he has put them together into a marvellous book about b grade cinema and tv. Also on the show we talk about the death of Acker Bilk plus we reveal the secrets of Area 51

Cocktail Nation 318 Johnny Carson

Posted in , bachelor pad, lounge music, retro by cocktailnation on June 22nd, 2014
The king of television Johhny Carson reigned supreme for decades on the box and is part of the mid century story arc that we just love here on the cocktail nation.
His story is so very big that it's difficult to do it justice so I thought let's take a look at the beginning of his career and what made the man. We have a look at a nice book on mid century culture to check out and how would you like to own a derelict nineteen twenties movie theatre in LA? Well there is one up for grabs!
