Seen and Heard in Edmonton podcast: Episode 2

Rev Recluse of Vintage Edmonton

Meet Kelly McConkey, also (in fact mostly) known as Rev Recluse, the amateur historian and fascinating completist behind Vintage Edmonton.

Kelly’s daily compendium of articles, ads and ephemera from 134 years of media in Edmonton draws me in like quicksand. He shares why he started doing it, and why he doesn’t foresee a day when he’ll stop. And he talks about his new podcast, in which he pulls treasure out of his collection of old records made in Edmonton.

Kelly loves history, so naturally he recommends a couple of history-focused blogs: Lost Edmonton and The Ave We Had. Among the podcasts he listens to are The Unknown Studio and Dirt City Limits.

You can find Vintage Edmonton on Facebook, and @revRecluse on Twitter, where he mostly tweets about history and Edmonton, except when a Cleveland sports team is in the playoffs!

The podcast was recorded in downtown Edmonton with the help of Adam Rozenhart. The music is from Beethoven’s Sonata No. 1 in F Minor, Op. 2 No. 1, played by Daniel Veesey and shared under a Creative Commons licence.
