In memory of George Coan, a great fan of the western and publisher of The Old Cowboy Picture Show (TOCPS) newsletter. George passed away on October 28, 2009.
|George Coan was the publisher of The Old Cowboy Picture Show (TOCPS), an 8 1/2 x 11, B&W publication that celebrated the B western.|
George's pal Leo Pando published the final issue of TOCPS which I received in December, 2009. The cover is shown on the right and the issue chronicles three passings: the death of George Coan and John "Lone Ranger" Hart as well as the closure of the Roy and Dale Museum in Branson, Missouri.
|Bill Russell, who contributed the Old Corral writeups on Bill Cody, Harry Carey, Hoot Gibson and others publishes his Western Revue fanzine several times a year.|
On the right is the cover of the January, 2010 issue which features Reb Russell, Lane Chandler, Lucille Lund, Bill Patton, and a Tex Cooper Appreciation. The issue is 8 1/2 x 11, in B&W, and is $6.00 postpaid in the U.S.
