Second Set: The sudden descent of 'Jet Lag'

Mar 8, 2012

This article first appeared in the St. Louis Beacon, March 8, 2012 - There’s really no exaggerating how important "Jet Lag" was to the music local community from its start in March 1980, to its demise just over a decade later. Begun by John “The Mailman” Korst and Steve Pick, his co-editor, co-publisher and a longtime local music writer and radio host, the zine began in the typical style of the day, a small, photocopied publication, bent in half and stapled. Priced at 50 cents, it featured a gang of young friends writing record and concert reviews, local scene updates and, eventually, some fun Q-and-As. Born of enthusiasm, the magazine grew slowly, but surely.
