SILVER OPENING CEREMONIES - April 25th 2008 - Las Vegas, Nevada
Silver Opening Ceremonies
Joyce and Arnie Katz welcome the attendees
of Corflu SIlver to the 25th Fanzine Fan Worldcon.
As is traditional for the Corflu
opening ceremony, a brief bit of humorous theatrics precedes Chairperson
Joyce Katz's welcoming speech, the choosing of the Corflu Silver Guest
of Honor and a live perfomance of 'The Goin' To Corflu Blues' by Bill Mills,
with harmonica accompaniment by Len Bailes. This is followed by duets by
Teresa Cochran Taylor and Bill Mills, a couple of fanzine filk songs by
Nic Farey (sadly Nic had no mic on the first number "Werewolves of Fandom"
and his vocal is nearly inaudible, but he's on mic for his second number)
and a one-of-a-kind impromptu perfomance by 90 year old Art Widner of a
blues song of his own composition and what he claims is the first filk
song ever written (by Jack Speer) "What a Mighty Fortress Is Our APA".

has recieved these few rare tapes of episodes from this series of shows
produced under the auspices of Odessa College and The Permean Basin Science
Fiction Association and ultimately aired on KOCV FM. There is audible hiss
suggesting that these may have been recorded 'off the air' as the program
was broadcast. My info on the show and it's hosts/producers is skimpy at
best. Darryl Lane, David Carson, David Cruz and Keith Johnson are variously
credited for participating in discussions and conducting interviews of
science fiction notables. Flawed though the audio may be, they are wonderfully
historic and informative, and well worth the listen.
