The Journey Force Fan Club Newsletter from January 1988 part IV; Force News

This week we end the Journey Force Newsletter from January 1988. This includes the Pen Pals and Merchandise pages. The tuxedo still looks great to me!

The Big Force news this edition is that they are changing the way they are numbering the Journey Force editions. Due to space limitations (or not wanting to add another page) they are holding off on announcing the winners of the Questionnaire from last edition...

The Journey Force Fan Club Newsletter from January 1988 part II: Dock Of The Bay

This week, the Newsletter from January 1988, starts off with an Archives Giveaway! The prizes included a cassette of Journey's "Oh Holy Night", from Neal and Jonathan. Also there was the album "A Candid Conversation", and A HASA T-Shirt.

Some members questions are also answered including an interesting piece on a TV Special that used Journey Audiences for other bands and never really showed Journey at all. I wouldn't even think that would be legal.

One cold day in December in 1987 near dusk, as the fog rolls in, Members of Journey can be seen on the beach in San Francisco. Pictures of Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain, and Randy Jackson while working on Michael Bolton's "Dock Of The Bay" Music Video fill in the last page this week.
