It has been a joy for me to produce this nostalgia magazine for the past forty years. Since 1973, Yesterday’s Magazette has preserved thousands of individual memories.

But now it is time to say goodbye.

Thank you for your support and friendship. I hope you will continue to be kind to one another.

Thanks for all the memories!

Yesterday’s Magazette 1973 – 2013


May 1, 2012

Yesterday’s Magazette Free Online and Digital Edition

Since 1973, this “Original Magazine of Memories” has taken you back to the thirsty 20s, the thrifty 30s, the fervent 40s, the fabulous 50s, the sensual 60s and the sequined 70s. YM has printed a multitude of memories from Vaudeville to Elvis.

Remember Mom in the kitchen cooking that fabulous holiday meal? Or, Dad taking the entire family for a Sunday ride in his new car? Or, Sis getting ready for her prom date? Your first car? Your first job? Your favorite holiday memory? Remember neighbors helping neighbors? YM readers remembered and they shared their stories with me and the world.

Since the very beginning, Yesterday’s Magazette has been about one thing: SHARING MEMORIES. For four decades YM has helped readers recapture that down-home honesty and goodness of the average American citizen with regularly printed issues. Nothing fancy … just plain folks who wanted to relate their own life experiences.

Yesterday’s Magazette’s motto has always been “Everyone Has A Yesterday” and I still believe everyone, regardless of age, has a cherished memory worth publishing. And, thankfully, YM has preserved thousands of these memories for posterity.

This has been a noble endeavor and I thank each and every YM reader who has contributed to this worthy cause. I hope all of you will continue to share your memories, if not within these pages then in another publication or in a book of your own. Future generations will thank you and be forever in your debt. And your life, or at least a small part of it, will live on for all eternity.

After more than 40 years of producing magazines and newspapers and meeting deadlines on a weekly, monthly, bi-monthly and quarterly schedule, I guess it is time for me to slow down a little and try to catch up on my own writing, art, music, and maybe even improve my golf game. (Scratch that last item. That would be an attempt in futility.)

Anyway, my nostalgic love affair with producing Yesterday’s Magazette has truly been a long and glorious ride for me. Of course, my deepest gratitude goes out to my talented contributing editors, Madonna Dries Christensen, Marshall J. Cook, and Carrillee Collins Burke, as well as to the thousands who have shared their lives with me and YM’s legion of loyal readers.

Enjoy our current edition now and remember to visit our website often.

Well, that’s it for now. Take care, and don’t forget to be kind to one another. Who knows? Your simple act of kindness may help change the world.

The Fall 2008 Issue of YM Is Here!

E. P. Ned Burke

Experts scoffed at my idea of starting a magazine that would be devoted solely to the preservation of individual memories … Then the first issue of Yesterday’s Magazette came out …

Dear friend,

That was 35 years ago … and YM is still alive and kickin’.

Publishing “experts” said Yesterday’s Magazette would never last.

They said a retro magazine devoted to individual memories was a bad idea.

They said a lot of things 35 years ago.

But, as you can see, those “experts” were wrong.

Founded in 1973 as “The Original Magazine of Memories,Yesterday’s Magazette pioneered the concept of making memories. First, as a small tabloid paper, YM soon grew into a glossy magazine with readers from coast to coast.

Today, the new YM online magazine is showcased here on the wide wonderful world of the global Internet. Now your personal memories can reach everyone on Planet Earth!

What a thrilling time for YM … and what a great opportunity for you to make and share some memories.

So, do you want to be remembered? Okay then, here’s what you do:

FIRST: Subscribe right now. It’s FREE! And  no spam. Guaranteed. So don’t miss out on updates and future issues of YM. Subscribe!

NEXT: Read this current edition. (It’s user-friendly, much like our old printed version of YM.) Go to the Menu Bar and click on the Front Cover and then work your way through the numbered pages to the Back Cover, or skip around. It’s up to you.

LASTLY: Take time to COMMENT on this issue or on any article or story that moved you and then send us one of your memories. (Click on Submissions in the menu bar for details.)

Leave a part of yourself for posterity.

Believe me, your children and grandchildren and future generations will be forever in your debt. And think how proud you will be knowing that billions of people from all over the world will have the opportunity to read a small part of your life’s story.

Thanks for the memories,


E. P. Ned Burke
