This 292 page book accompanies the boxed set of six CDs that contain 100 Cold War songs, several dozen civil defense radio announcements, and nine civil defense short films from the 1950s and 1960s. The artists include well-known performers such as Bill Haley and His Comets, Marty Robins, Teresa Brewer, and Tom Lehrer, as well as many who are lesser known, such as the Goldwaters. Numerous photographs and images accompany a text which places the artists and their music in the context of the times. The authors represent CONELRAD, an organization dedicated to the preservation and examination of atomic popular culture.
