Cold War Music from the Golden Age of Homeland Security

CONELRAD Special Projects Present Geerhart's Periodic Table of Atomic Music

Slim Gaillard and Bam Brown - BOOM! Atomic Cocktail!On the occasion of CONELRAD's launch of its comprehensive new database of Cold War music, the following is a convenient, easy-on-the eyes listing of 100 of our favorite radioactive hits, all of which are contained on the Bear Family-CONELRAD co-production, ATOMIC PLATTERS: Cold War Music from the Golden Age of Homeland Security that was released on August 6, 2005.

Over time we will be adding new (to us) atomic titles in our Updates section as well as to the database. We look forward to discovering exciting and strange new platters that we hope to share with you, the public via periodic podcasts. In short, the box set was just the beginning. Stay tuned to CONELRAD where the pop cultural excavation never ends.
