These two Atwater Kent items came together so, as always, I kept them that way. The catalog isn't perfect, but is tightly bound and clean.

There's a also a tiny corner missing to lower front cover, a part of mailing label on front has been removed, there's a few faint pencil marks on back, and evidence that something was once pasted on top edge of a two page sp...

Price: $25.00

Publisher: Dunellen, New Jersey, Dell Publishing: 1937

Seller ID: 1944

Condition: Very Good


In the heyday of radio Radio Stars Magazine was the biggest publication of its kind. So many of the movie stars got their break on radio before they hit the big screen. The cover of this issue features Jeanette McDonald fresh off her honeymoon, plus a story about the then very young Kitty Carlisle. Some of the names have faded, but it's interesting to get a bird's eye view of the radio stars when radio was a Big Thing. There's also gossip and a complete coast to coast ra... View more info

Usually there's a name or two that jumps out of Collier's, but this time no luck. It's still interesting though with a hard look at what Russia was up to in 1949, penned by Frank Gevasi; an article about how much money it was going to cost to make TV mainstream; and Native American dancing by various tribes (beautiful pictures). There's also a really cool ad by Wurlitzer advertising a jukebox that looks like a work of art! As always, this magazine has fiction too. Magazi... View more info
