Wanted: Magic on the Radio

I'm seeking a book about performing magic on the radio. I've been pointed toward something like "Doing Magic on the Radio," or "Radio Magic," or something like that. The author is John Wade.

I've tried a number of book dealers...anybody have anything?

Re: Pick the new Martin Nash book Cover

Sadly, those three covers don't do the best job at emphasizing the quality of what's inside. (most likely) I will not offer criticism, since everyone's already done that. I'll merely point out a few things regarding magic and design. Books and DVDs have problems selling sometimes. Someone will alway...

Re: Closing Effect

I think some of the suggestions here for closers just don't work for what you're looking for, Rick. Most of the ideas spat our here are silly. They don't have the power that your closer needs. Linking Rings are too weak. A production can be great, but are better to jump-start an act. "Reincorpo...

Re: drinking glass production

Bottle/Glass Production form Cards

I'm doing a gag with three large cards (say Jumbo Bikes) and want to produce a glass, or bottle, of Orange Juice after the gag is done.

I'm thinking I can build one of the cards to hold the glass, but it seems faulty for angle reasons....

Thoughts, anyone?

Re: '5 x 5 Japan' and 'New Magic From Japan'

Those books came out in the late eighties, early nineties, right? (circa??)

It might be easier to just look in an old Linking Ring or Genii or something from those years.

Why would you like to see the reviews? Just for fun, or to see if you want the book?
