Cap'n's Cabaret #86: Farther, Faster, Higher!!

Around the World in Eight Days!  Move over, Magellen, and rethink the future, Verne, 'cause here comes Wiley Post!

Circumnavigating the globe was once the stuff of fantasy, then the stuff of years, and then the stuff of weeks.  Our old friend Hugo Eckner managed to circumnavigate the globe in less than a month in his fabulous Zeppelins, and, hey, we were impressed! …

Welcome to Two-Fisted Tuesdays, where we throw on our trench coats, don our fedoras, and walk down the mean streets of classic crime fiction.


Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar by Douglas Klauba Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar was a crime drama that ran for over 12 years during the golden age of radio. The main character, Johnny Dollar, was a smart, tough, wisecracking insurance detective who tossed silver-dollar tips to waiters and bellhops. While always a friend of…

Cap'n's Cabaret #85: Flying Angels

So you thought only the guys could fly?  Think again!

By now I'm sure you're aware of the lovely Mrs. Earhart, "Lady Lindy" as she is oft called, now that she has duplicated Lindbergh's solo transatlantic flight, besting his time by half in a Vega 5B...only 15 hours from Newfoundland to Ireland!

But Mrs. Earhart isn't alone.  A whole slew of Aviatrices…

Cap'n's Cabaret #84: Zeppelins Ahoy!

Behold, the amazing hand of science!  It's the size of a ship and the weight of a truck.  It's the Graf Zeppelin, a rigid-hulled airship, and it's available for hire!

Yes, folks, Hugo Eckner's amazing creation, a silver bullet the size of an ocean liner, the LZ 127 is not just the pinacle of human aeronautics, but the pinacle of flight…

A Very Kafka Birthday!

Ever had one of those days where you wake up as a giant rat or find yourself the inexplicable victim of a large dystopian tribunal?

Patriotic Pilsner's Picks

Well, maybe not that patriotic, except for the 1922 Okeh Records label with the Statue of Liberty on it. I posted just about all the flag-waving music I've got last July (including a rare electrical recording of John Philip Sousa's band), so now it's back to my usual grab bag of mostly 20's stuff, with a few risky excursions (copyright-wise) into the 30's and 40's.…
