ATOMIC PLATTERS: A-Day is August 6, 2005!

For the past two years the staff of CONELRAD has been engaged in a top secret project, a kind of "musical Manhattan Project," if you will. And not unlike the real Manhattan Project, our labor has resulted in a product that is extremely radioactive. Culturally radioactive, that is.

With this clandestine work finally concluded, we are extremely proud to formally announce that ATOMIC PLATTERS: COLD WAR MUSIC FROM THE GOLDEN AGE OF HOMELAND SECURITY, a five CD/1 DVD box set capturing the best in vintage atomic music and film, will be released/detonated on August 6th!

To ensure that this collection is definitive in every sense of the word, CONELRAD has worked hand-in-hard with the prestigious Bear Family Records of Germany to produce a set that should have fans of this genre salivating. Just look at what you’ll find on ATOMIC PLATTERS:
  • Over 100 Cold War tracks featuring CONELRAD favorites Slim Gaillard, Janet Greene, The Goldwaters, Bill Haley, Ann-Marget, Carl Perkins, Carl Mann and many, many more!

  • Two full-length spoken word 'scare' albums from 1961 re-issued for the first time: IF THE BOMB FALLS and THE COMPLACENT AMERICANS!

  • More than two dozen frighteningly naïve Public Service Announcements, many voiced by such celebrities as Groucho Marx, Pat Boone and Johnny Cash!

  • A DVD with nine short-subject civil defense and anti-Communist films!

  • A nearly 300 page hardbound book bursting with Cold War era photos and bizarre art with liner notes by CONELRAD co-founder Bill Geerhart!
This box set has not been priced, but we expect it to be under $200.00. If you are interested in ordering ATOMIC PLATTERS through CONELRAD, we are accepting pre-orders now!
