Looking at the latest issue of RetroFan magazine

 It's time for another unsolicited plug for my favorite pop culture magazine out there right now, TwoMorrows' bimonthly RetroFan! The current issue, with cover stars Mark Goddard and Marta Kristen from Lost in Space, has a lot of interest to 70s and 80s TV fans, including:

*A look at Bob Crane's oft-forgotten career as a superstar radio personality (Hey, The Bob Crane Show was in 1975...and Hogan's at least ended in 1971).

*Andy Mangels' comprehensive history of Dynomutt and Blue Falcon.  Mangels has become my favorite regular in the mag; his stuff always delivers!

*Will Murray's look at the not-so-clear origins of Archie Andrews.

*A look at 1970s Partridge Family trading cards.

In addition to that and the Lost in Space coverage, you get amusing pieces on generic products (trust me, it's very entertaining), the World Famous San Diego Zoo (itself a fixture of 70s and 80s pop culture, though more on that is coming in part 2 next time), and more!

I have seen the magazine at Barnes and Noble, but it's always available in print and digital online. Check it out, and tell 'em BOTNS sent you!
