Steptoe and Son Magazine..

Postby PhilGlass » Sun May 08, 2011 12:02 am

I was not in to Steptoe at the time we had "The Totting Times" and by the time of "The Rag and Bone", well, I was just a nipper... (honest...)

With the age of the internet, practically everything you want to know you can find online... BUT... if someone (i.e. me) brought a Steptoe magazien back, would you subscribe?

It would be a case of £2 every 3 months just to cover the costs, or something like that.. either printed copies or electronic downloads... nothing in the magazines would be featured online..

I know some fans want this, others don't.. but I'd be happy to do it if people were interested.. I guarantee a bloody good read...

Put your views below!!

Nice idea Phil

If you are happy to do it.

I have some old Totting Times which I was planning to scan and put on the site, but I'll hold off until you have made a decision on this one.

Bob,

It would be great to see "The Totting Times" on here, and I would be happy to take on the project of bringing a new mag to the fold, but it would be my own thing - not the Totting Times or the Rag and Bone, something of my own.

As long as enough people want it, I'm happy to do it. If anyone has any ideas as to what they;d like to see, or would even like to be invovled let me know..

Maybe we could do an offical magazine of this website? That's just an idea and no offence whatsoever would be taken if it is declined. The mag will compliment website news and updates, not be in competition with it. :)

Great idea count me in for a subscription Phil :o

Before I was on the net I wrote to the society and they sent me a pile of 'Rag N Bone' magazines free :)

I lost some when I moved house a few years back, but I still have issue - 5,6,& 11.

OK Guys Totting Times on their way.

Phil yours is a really nice idea and I wish you well wirh it. We can put a page about it on our mutual websites. I can also set it up so that you can collect a subscription vie the sites or sell individual copies. Perhaps we can email each other as your plans take shape.

Good luck

If anybody would like to make any contribution to the magazine, no matter how large or small, please let me know. Maybe a crossword (a clean one pleae) or maybe there's something steptoeish you'd like to write about? Don't worry about things like grammar, spelling etc, the editor will sort that out!!

If there is anything, any images etc, let me nkow and I'll happily welcome your contributions!!!!!!

(However, if we get raided for publishing indecent materials like the Vicar did then I won't be very happy!!)
