Last night at the closing ceremonies for LOSCON 47, SCIFI.radio‘s executive producer Susan Fox and its station manager Gene Turnbow were named Fan Gusts of Honor for LOSCON 48, to take place Thanksgiving Weekend at the Los Angeles Airport Marriot Hotel.
LOSCON is the annual convention of the Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society, the oldest continuously operating science fiction fan club in the world.
LASFS began in 1934, as a charter group of Hugo Gernsback’s Science Fiction League. Gernsback, editor of the prominent science fiction magazine Wonder Stories, created the League so that magazine fans from across the country could correspond with each other.
We’re happy to be part of the sci-fi fandom community, and this is a sign that SCIFI.radio, this unusual project that we’ve been working on for more than a decade, has also become an accepted part of that same community.
It’s an honor we were not expecting, and we’re very grateful for the opportunity.
SCIFI.radio is listener supported sci-fi geek culture radio, and operates almost exclusively via the generous contributions of our fans via our Patreon campaign. If you like, you can also use our tip jar and send us a little something to help support the many fine creatives that make this station possible.
Congratulations, Gene and Susan! I think Dennis and I started a trend of couple fan guests and we’re glad you were picked next to carry on this new tradition =)
