Bruce Caplan is a Seattle native with very eclectic interests. Back in the 70’s he was the sponsor of a 40’s music radio show on KXA in Seattle. When he watched the movie Titanic staring Clifton Webb and Barbara Stanwyck in 1953 Caplan became fascinated with the horrible tragedy. In 1996 his book on the subject was released. It’s now in the 20th printing. A decade ago Caplan began to do a weekly radio show on KIXI. The program is called Radio Trivia and he weekly brings to his audience the best of the best of the comedies from the golden age of radio. Because of Caplan’s interest in true crime, he began a second program on KIXI called Crime Club. On this show he often discuses events with authors of books on criminal subjects and weekly plays the great radio mysteries from long ago. Bruce has lectured throughout our nation and on scores of cruises. His greatest thrill is searching through the goldmine of radio gems of mysteries and comedies from yesteryear and bringing them back to an eager audience of young and old. --- View other articles by Bruce Caplan

  1. Many people think that (crystal) Einstein’s name was inspired by the German Nobel Scientist Albert Einstein, but this is not correct even though Albert Einstein himself was said to have admired crystals. There are also phallic symbols carved from crystals, such as, the very ancient RCA Crystal Microphone, dating back to the late 1920’s, representing the power of the broadcast medium, the effectiveness of radio advertising and the popularity of the superjocks. It was discovered out back of the WEAF transmitter shack in 1928.

    1. Well having personal knowledge I would have to say marketing would be the reason for naming the crystal skull Einstein.

  2. Back in the day when people believed they could trust the news source, like Murrow, Kaltenborn and Huntley.
