In a handful of pages, DJ Frederick manages to include: getting off of drugs and alcohol, the 70s gas crisis, the first time, 4-H, three decades apart from his first born, and working out feelings of abandonment. An interesting journey, for sure. 12 pages, half-letter size.

From the little he knows, DJ Frederick pieces together a complicated portrait of his father: a World War II veteran who was secretive, emotionally abusive, a lover of Indian music and member of a Christian Ashram, a singing cowboy the late 1930s. A short zine that is heavy, sweet, and complex. 12 pages, cardstock covers, half-letter size.

The follow-up to All My Fathers, DJ Frederick (Paper Radio, Turntable Operator) gives us what he calls, "memory sketches of my temporary brothers and our misadventures." In a small zine, he asks some big questions and tells some heavy stories. Half-letter size, 12 pages.
