Wild (published at Long Beach State in 1960)

Posted: February 2, 2011 in colleges, publications
front cover of Wild portraying Ike’s exit and JFK’s entry into the White House in early ’61 with threats of the day (just to fill in the blanks for anyone younger than 60 years).

A heavily satirical / political magazine, Wild, was published by Jim Dombrowski and friends at Long Beach State.  The address was shown as 58 Nieto.  Filled with articles about American adventures in Cuba, Laos and Korea, it was heavily critical of U.S. policy, but even-handed to the extent it also critiqued an advertiser, the Hat on Belmont Shore for presenting rote and boring jazz.

Good luck finding an original issue of Wild.

wonder if the Hat re-upped after the relaxed mauling its in-house jazz combo the Tophatters received (“producing a constant lull”) in the jazz review pages.
