New Co-Host, New Logo for Die Cast X TV’s “Cup O’ Joe”

Jan 19, 2013 No Comments by

“Cup o’ Joe” is Die Cast X Magazine‘s live streaming show, appearing every other Sunday at 11AM Eastern, 8AM Pacific – and with over 114,000 viewer minutes, it looks like the show is really starting to get traction among collectors! That doesn’t mean we’re sitting back and taking it easy… far from it. Frank Quarant (the late Car Room Magazine’s “Why I Love Cars”) has joined the show to add his own particular spice and expertise to the program – and since Frank and Joe have been “besties” for over 35 years, the chemistry in the studio is what you’d expect from a couple of old friends talking about the cars they love and the models they collect.  The show features an interactive chat, as well as regular giveaways and prizes, including window clings and model cars.

As the clock ticks forward to a vastly improved stream quality (thanks to a new broadcast computer and a revamped stream server – on deck for Spring, 2013), Air Age designer-in-chief Betty Nero and her crew of merry artists have come up with a new logo for the show – and we’re happy to see all of these pieces starting to come together to make the Internet’s only live collectibles show grow more and more popular and entertaining.

Join us! The next episode will air on Sunday, January 20th at 11AM Eastern, 8AM Pacific , right HERE!

About the author

I was always crazy about toy cars and car-themed play sets, but I got hooked on car models when my cousin sent me a pair of built-up AMT kits - a '61 Continental and a '57 Thunderbird. I was six or seven years old when another cousin - Carl - showed me how to build and paint, and by the time I was nine, I had a pretty good collection and a great "spares box" on hand. The original Auto World catalogs were my dream books; my allowance was spent before it was ever earned, and I knew every hobby store and model retailer on Long Island. Then came slot cars, Cox .049-engined Baja Buggies and airplanes, and, ultimately, the real things. I still have some of those old models, and when time allows, I still build or detail scale cars. But it's the ready-to-display replicas and scale racing models that have really had me jazzed for the past fifteen years or so. The "mint" diecasts and the 1:18 American Muscle cars that I cut my serious collecting (and writing) teeth on back then led straight to the current crop of offerings from high-end makers and models in every scale. I also love scale model photography, and shooting, scoring, and producing videos of the models I love. I'm a proud member of the DiecastSpace Diecast Hall of Fame, as well as the Diecast Car Collectors' Club Diecast Scale Model Hall of Fame. I'm also proud to be a part of the Die Cast X Team, and as Editor-in-Chief, I'm looking forward to years of growing the publication and showing new collectors how much fun this hobby can be. And, yeah - I still have that spares box.
