The Razz Revue Revived

June 28, 2019
  It was 47 years ago today, Dan The Man Harshberger and I made a momentous decision.

All 16 issues of the Razz Revue on display

"On June 28th, 1972, we decided to produce something that would be a collector's item and worth a lot of money someday. We haven't decided what yet. In the meantime we created and published the first issue of Razz Revue."

—My first editorial in the first issue, Vol. 1, No. 1

   We are now working on issue #17. Yes, we had a bit of a dry patch but doesn't everyone? As our Kingman Junior High School basketball coach liked to say, "Grandma was slow, but she was old."

   Or, as my father, Allen P. Bell, was fond of saying, "Better late than never."

   Or, as my muse, Kathy Sue Radina, puts it, "This is a totally lame project."

"The arc of history bends toward delusion."

    I have a copy of the 103 Irregular Arizonans somewhere in my books/magazines. Still remember Bill Molino - Token/Tokin Philippino.

    So did this ever happen?

    I think I own all of them (bought at that record store outside the main gate at the UofA) except for the two on the bottom right. If I ever find a copy of them, it's likely the universe will come to an end so pray for rarity.
