CED Digest Vol. 3 No. 23  •  6/6/1998

Subject: Intro, kind of.


I'm a new voice in the news list. I'm currently working in Tucson for a
microelectronics company. I worked for RCA during the eighties as an engineer in
Sommerville, NJ, when RCA was assembling and dismantling the CED program. It was a
good time to pick-up cheap discs which I did. From my understanding Tucson seems to
have some good CEDs too. I haven't looked. I believe that the CED program placed
RCA in the position which allowed GE to take them over. Well no use crying over
dead companies.

My most played CEDs are Easy Rider, Apocalypse Now and Wizard of Oz. There are a
bunch I don't play. Any one got really good recommendations regarding skipping. My
Blondie and Grateful Dead CEDs are particularly bad for that; nothing worse then
jumbled skipping Blondie..

Well enough babble.

Best regards,

Lee Fisk

   I have been into vintage televisions and radios for years and my scope
of interest has wandered into video discs as well.  One can find several
radio museums and a few television museums on the web.  I can guarantee
each one of these started with a collector with vision (or lack of
space).  And there are over time some of these that don't succeed past
ten years.  Usually these go to auction and the cycle starts over
again.		                            Why not support this
museum fellow?  If he's looking for freebies it will be a thin situation
and luck will determine what interesting stuff will be seen there. 
Without support I am sure success will elude him.                        
                         This website seems to be a sort of museum
itself----the information available is almost  impossible to find
elsewhere.  I give credit and thanks to Tom for having the vision to set
up a base point for interest in CED movies.              CRAIG

I have a CED that some one might want, "Academy Award Winners Animated Short
Films".  I would like to trade for an older war movie like "Sargent York",
"Stalag 17",  "The Longest Day" or "A bridge too Far".  ...Anyway just Email
me at     Thanks.... JP
