“The Photokina is the world's largest trade fair for the photographic and imaging industries. The first Photokina was held in Cologne, Germany, in 1950, and it is now held biennially in September at the koelnmesse Trade Fair and Exhibition Centre.”

After some chit chat about color transparency films and Hamilton Photo Labs, Michael intros the Photokina clips:

The Polaroid am/fm radio - Kodachrome image by Michael Raso

Dane whips out the unusual Polaroid AM/FM portable radio. It’s super cool and is powered up by empty Polaroid 600 packs! Dane turns it on to the sounds of The Ramones “Rock and Roll Radio!”

The music on today’s show was performed by Kilsy and her band from her album Bonito-O (available here – )

Most recently, Kilsy has been making guest appearances with The Smoove Sailors. (FPPers John, Dane and Mark are Smoove Sailors!)

FPP 68 closes with the cut “The Window” from NJ artist Kilsy.
