78 Quarterly still in business?
« on: February 10, 2010, 01:46:23 AM »
 Has anyone information whether 78 Quarterly is still active. I know they don't adhere to any schedule other than to consecutively number each each publication, and at times there may be years between issues. Seems like they were on a role a couple years ago, around the time of the Charley Patton seed catalog picture discovery. I've send a couple emails that were never answered. Thanks, Rob

Last issue seems to have been published in 2005 and not one since - see discussion here http://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?amp;Itemid=60&topic=881.0

Howdy folks, It's my impression that Pete Whelan (the publisher) is, for what ever reason, not able to keep up the job of publishing 78 Quarterly and there are not likely to be anymore editions. However, I would love to be surprised and maybe Pete could get it together or someone else could take up the job and keep it going.

Regards, Phil

It's not too surprising that Pete retired 78 Quarterly after issue 12 -- that issue finished the alphabet on the 'world's rarest 78's' series, so he probably viewed it as a good cutoff point. (But in that issue, he DID say he intended to keep putting out issues.)

I'm not sure that Pete retired 78 Quarterly, as much as the project just ran out of gas, at least for now.

I have Pete's number if anyone is interested.  Last I heard he has all the available issues, except number 1 and 2 - but he does have a later version of the two that are combined.  But he still has all the issues.

Anyone missing 78 Quarterly should consider the first Frog annual magazine which is a very similar type of magazine (plus CD) which is well worth getting.

Where can we find Frog magazine online?  Google keeps pointing toward a French arts magazine...
