(Twee weken later op 6 augustus 1942 verschijnt het allereerste nummer van Tuney Tunes. Dit Nederlandse muziekblad is een uitgave van de Eindhovense drukker Jan van Haaren. Tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog wordt Tuney Tunes ondergronds uitgegeven. Jan van Haaren is een groot muziekliefhebber daarom wil hij sinds de jaren dertig een eigen muziekblad beginnen. Tuney Tunes is aanvankelijk een soort boekwerkje met uitsluitend songteksten van Amerikaanse hits. De naam is een knipoog naar Looney Tunes, de Amerikaanse tekenfilms. Het eerste nummer bestaat uit acht pagina’s, verpakt in een kartonnen omslag. Tuney Tunes kost vijf Belgische frank. De prijs wordt in franken vermeld om de Duitse bezetter om de tuin te leiden. Amerikaanse muziek is tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog in bezet Nederland verboden, vooral als het door zwarten wordt uitgevoerd. In 1965 verkoopt Jan van Haaren Tuney Tunes aan Paul Acket, de uitgever van Muziek Expres. In juli 1966 verschijnt het laatste exemplaar van Tuney Tunes. Paul Acket laat het blad samengaan met Teenbeat, één van zijn andere muziekbladen. Uiteindelijk wordt de naam veranderd in Popfoto.)

(Op 23 augustus 1942 begint de Luftwaffe Stalingrad te bombarderen. Het zou het zwaarste bombardement van de Tweede Wereldoorlog aan het Oostfront worden. De Luftwaffe voert meer dan 2.000 vluchten boven de stad uit. Het doel van het bombardement is paniek te zaaien onder de bevolking. Omdat de Duitsers hopen de fabrieken zelf nog te kunnen gebruiken als Stalingrad verovert is, zullen alleen woon- en kantoorwijken worden getroffen. Na enkele weken wordt er geen onderscheid meer gemaakt. De houten huizen aan de westrand van de stad krijgen een regen van brandbommen te verduren. Ook de grote olie-opslagtanks aan de oever van de Wolga worden getroffen. Brandende olie stroomt in de Wolga en wordt door de stroming verspreid. Er ontstaat een grote, loeiende vlammenzee waardoor het lijkt alsof de rivier in brand staat. Door de dichte zwarte rook en het stof boven de stad is de zon bijna volledig verduisterd. De rookkolom is in de verre omtrek te zien. De stad is veranderd in een inferno waarin in een week tijd ongeveer 40.000 burgers omkomen. Kortom de Slag om Stalingrad is begonnen. De slag zou vijf en een halve maand duren. Van half september tot half oktober 1942 vallen er aan Duitse zijde in de stad 14.000 doden en 60.000 gewonden, terwijl de verliezen bij de Sovjets daar nog een veelvoud van zijn.)
