It appears that the good folks over at CONELRAD have been working with the German record label, Bear Family Records, over the last 2 years, to bring you, Atomic Platters: Cold War Music From The Golden Age Of Homeland Security...

"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!"

Very nice indeed... And if you would like to get your copy, you can do so over at the Bear Family Records online store.

Finally, I would also like to extend best wishes and a happy birthday to the gents at CONELRAD, for their 6th birthday, Cheers! By the way, check out CONELRAD's Online Store if you're interested in perhaps a Fallout Shelter clock or something similar.

UPDATE: Currently Amazon has Atomic Platters listed for preorder, with a price tag of $195.49... The release date is set for August 16th. Also, if you would like to hear some of the tunes before you buy, then check out CONELRAD: Atomic Platters on Live365.
