A little joy and strangeness came into my childhood around 1980 with the arrival of 'The Unexplained'. 165 issues were published; contributors / consultants / editors included Peter Brookesmith, Dr. J. Allen Hynek, Professor A. J. Ellison, Brian Innes, Colin Wilson and Rupert Sheldrake. The tone of the magazine, contrary to popular perception, was agnostic - many phenomena were actually debunked in the magazine, others left open.
The 'Angels of Mons' got a good debunking, for example.
I'll try to upload an issue a week, time permitting. Click 'list of current
scans' above, for the latest issues uploaded.
Here's the full-sized album on imgur.

Issue #1 came with a 7 inch plastic record, containing audio recordings,
allegedly of the dead. This record scared the wits out a generation of 10-12
year olds, myself included. Fortunately, both sides of the record have been
uploaded to youtube:
Notice the absence of adverts (barring the one for the binder on the back
cover). Also notice the simplicity of the design/layout. There are rarely more
than two fonts per page, the text is spaced out for legibility, and there are no
stapled inserts with free samples for mens' cologne.
