Alert - it's a CONELRAD multimedia extravaganza!
Watch & Listen: History Channel & Platters Podcast

CONELRAD makes its basic cable debut tomorrow (Friday 12/8/2006) with the Duck and Cover episode of the History Channel's new original series 'Our Generation.' Hosted by resident historian Steve Gillon the series "tells the stories of the unforgettable events that defined the Baby Boomer generation and changed the world." CONELRAD co-founder and creative director Ken Sitz was interviewed earlier this year about the 'Golden Age of Homeland Security' and CONELRAD generously provided archival audio and images for the production. The announced air times are Friday, December 8 at 12:00 PM, 6:00 PM and Sunday, December 10 at 8:30 AM.
The Boomer Generation was the first to live with the real threat of mutually assured destruction. From the beginning of the cold war and Sputnik to the hair-raising reality of the Cuban Missile Crisis, the potential of nuclear proliferation became a way of life. Growing up with the knowledge that, at a touch of a button, millions of people could be killed was one of the most formative experiences for young Boomers.
