Nostalgia Digest: Celebrating the Golden Age of Entertainment

If you have been visiting my blogs for any amount of time, you know that I not only love Disney, but so much more. I’m into silent movies, old radio shows, vintage toys and collectibles, classic television, musicals… oh, the list just goes on and on!

So when I found this little digest at my local Chapters store, I was intrigued, and it was a no-brainer buy for this nostalgia nut:

Nostalgia Digest is published in Chicago and is a quarterly journal. It has about 65 pages but is a black and white publication. Which is appropriate, given the subject matter. What really caught my attention though was the fact that it is linked to an actual modern radio station that still broadcasts old radio shows and talk shows about same! The call letters are WDCB 90.9 FM or you can pick it up on the internet at www.wdcb.org which boasts a Jazz and Blues format.

But back to the digest:

Being as this is primarily a blog about my love of all-things Disney, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the Disney connection in this digest. Author Jim Dohren writes about growing up with those great record-readers we all listened to and loved. And of course, Disney was one of the main users of this medium to reach an audience:

I have many of these Record-Readers in my collection

I’m so impressed with this publication (and that it still is a publication, and not a digital offering) that I just have to recommend it too any fan of nostalgia programming! You can pick up individual issues for just $4.50 US or get a yearly subscription delivered to your door for $17.00 US or two years for just $30.00 US. Back issues are also available.

Check it out! You’ll be glad you did.
