Conelrad is a site devoted to all aspects of atomic culture in the United States, presented in an informative and visual stimulating fashion. Founded in April 1999 by two Cold War veterans, Ken Sitz and Bill Geerhart, the site is a vast clearinghouse of articles, interviews, book reviews, and visual and audio documents related to the post-WWII atomic culture that flourished for close to two decades. While the site does not have an internal search engine, it is easily navigated. The best feature of Conelrad are definitely the short films and audio clips originally produced by the Civil Defense Board, including tracks from the 1962 LP, "If the Bomb Falls" and the unintentionally hilarious 1964 LP, "NORAD Tracks Santa." For those who remember the fallout shelter craze, the site also contains several virtual exhibitions dealing with this aspect of the atomic age, including one specifically dealing with fallout shelters in California.
