Today’s Magic Bulletin starts with Dynamo introducing his dog Bessie to K9 Magazine. You can read their interview with him on their website.

If it is still Thursday morning when you are reading this, you may want to turn on NBC’s Today Show to see if you can catch their “lunch with magicians” segment.

South Coast Today takes a quick look at local boy Alfred DeLage who toured with Prince Rajah in the 1930s. Deluge, a New Bedford, MA native, would be billed on his own as the America’s Fastest Magician.
