1970s

To kick off things for Halloween in a ghoulish way, this old piece of 1973 wax will most likely do the trick (…or treat). Doctor Druid’s Haunted Seance is sure to scare and entertain everyone in the family, especially if used with one speaker hidden in the ceiling for the proper “stereo spirit” effect. Heck, even I am a bit freaked out by this old time piece which revolves around a haunted seance hosted by our Doctor Druid. The good...

If you ever wondered how it was like living in the old communist eastern Europe but were unable to do so before the wall fell? Here is your chance. In the heart of the former eastern side of Berlin lies a quite ordinary looking concrete apartment building that once was home to dozens of people, but today houses the quite unusual DDR-designed and inspired hostel… Ostel. Once inside, you have a selection that ranges from tastefully designed single or double...

This scene really defines the mood of the whole series which is undoubtedly a fine piece of classic television...

One of my all time favorite John Barry scores is the one from British movie Follow Me! (also known as The Public Eye). Released in 1972 and set in London, it portrays the story of a wealthy jealous banker hiring a eccentric and strange private detective played by Topol to follow his wife, played by Mia Farrow around London in a cat and mouse type of game. Not only does London play a big part in the movie, it is...

Like out of a modern love story, musicians Charlotte from France and Magon from Israel first made contact online. Two years later, they met face to face at the airport in Tel-Aviv after Magon invited Charlotte to fly over to produce a vintage influenced pop album with him.
