Re: New P&T Magic Set

Seriously? Penn's saying their the first ones to actually teach the tricks on a video? ??? A quick YouTube search for Marshall Brodien's kits in the 1990's shows him demonstrating and teaching his tricks on a 1990's VHS video, teaching the tricks that came with his magic set. Way before Penn & T...

Re: New P&T Magic Set

What a lie! Marshall Brodien's magic sets had VHS tapes with Marshall himself performing / explaining the tricks. A quick search on YouTube and you can find them easily. The first one to do it ???. What a crock !

Re: On stage in Dan Sperry's Pocket!

Dodd,

I know David Regal's interview was lost due to a computer failure. Is there any plans for another try with David? I know he is busy with TV projects. As always, great job. Too bad David Kaye's internet connection failed during the last Magic Newswire show.
