Welcome to the Music Issue of Cold War Magazine.
This month’s issue covers the popular music of the Cold War, starting with the war in Korea and ending with the fall of the Soviet Union and the collapse of the Berlin Wall. There’s lots to listen to, so be sure to carry your earbuds with you.
Just a note of caution, though. This issue of Cold War Magazine works best on your laptop or CD. We’ve had reports of crashes, especially on older iPads. This is because there are lots of embedded You Tube videos, so it uses a lot of memory. You can listen to the videos as you go, or you can access the playlists at the end of most articles. Most of the playlists are on the Cold War Studies You Tube Channel. Access it here.
Cold War Magazine is proud to be all about Cold War history, culture, and politics. Many people think that the Cold War was just a half century confrontation between the United States and the Soviet Union. But it was really much more than an international conflict. Those of us who lived it know that the Cold War was a “state of mind,” encompassing every aspect of life from fashion and decor to bubblegum cards and comic books.
Here at Cold War Magazine, we’re all about Cold War fun! And we’re easy to read. Subscriptions are free at present, but we may charge for subscriptions in the future. So why not get on board now?
