Collecting Those Old 78s Lorne Van Sinclair
For 50 years the 10 inch 78 RPM disc was the standard format for records in North America and Europe. In 1901 the Berliner flat disc beat out the Edison cylinder to become as the medium by which popular songs were distributed to the masses. It ruled supreme until 1948 when the 45 and LP were introduced, but it took 10 more years before it was completely phased out. It’s safe to say the 78 disc recorded, and in fact is largely responsible for, one of the most fascinating periods in American popular music.
Jaws Memorabilia James Burrell
Released in the summer of 1975, the classic thriller Jaws captured the public’s attention like no movie before it and instilled in them a fear of the open water. The tale of a enormous great white shark that terrorizes the population of a seaside resort town, prompting the local police chief to join forces with a marine researcher and shark hunter to track and kill it was Hollywood’s original summer blockbuster hit. Taking an enormous bite out of the box-office, it smashed all previous records and made a household name of the film’s director, a then unknown 27-year-old named Steven Spielberg. But before it became a watershed movie Jaws started life as a bestselling novel by author Peter Benchley. A former speechwriter for President Lyndon B Johnson, Benchley was also a journalist for the Washington Post and an editor for Newsweek Magazine. Fascinated with sharks since an early age, he was inspired to write Jaws after reading a 1964 news piece about a fisherman who had caught a 4,550-pound great white off Long Island. Several years later Benchley would propose a shark-themed story to Doubleday publishers and Jaws would be released in February of 1974.

I'd Rather Be Sailing By Patrick Flynn
I'd rather be sailing, an enthusiasm of mine since my parents shipped me down to Mrs. Gardiner at.... basics of sanding a battered Nordberg hull ( the victim of the previous year's neophytes). Before that I remember fashioning boats from bits of 2 by 4, some doweling and cloth and floating them in puddles in a neigbour's driveway. Related work led to ....
