Her descripton of Isaac Asimov (reality) vs Isaac Asimov (what she expected) includes - "He turned out to be a senior-sized Harlan Ellison without the pipe and mustache.

YouTube: Thanks to Mowgli Assor for making it possible for this 88 year old fannish legend to participate in a 21st century Zoom.
--Part 1: https://youtu.be/fubdSdZSmrc  Juanita Coulson has been an active science fiction fan for 70 years. She's a marathon fanzine publisher, a mainstay of the filk community and a professional writer. Among her honors: Hugo winner (Yandro, 1965), Worldcon Fan Guest of Honor (1972), Filk Hall of Fame inductee (1998) and she famously outsang a steamboat whistle (NASFiC, 1979). In this fascinating interview, Juanita provides personal recollections of some of the legendary fans of science fiction, of whom she is one. Juanita starts with her entry into fandom, her experiences at Chicon II (1952 Worldcon) and recalls how racism affected her friend Bev Bowles as she tried to check into a convention hotel. Juanita tells of her first meeting with Harlan Ellison, the origin of Bob Tucker's "smooth" gesture, the first all night filksing and how she lost her job during the McCarthy era for being "different". This interview is a rare and enlightening look into science fiction fandom in 50s, 60s and onward. Part 1 ends with Juanita's rendition of one of the filksongs she made famous, Reminder, written by husband Buck Coulson.
--Part 2:https://youtu.be/hFVaScb9WmI  In part 2, Juanita talks more about fandom in the 60s and beyond There are stories of filk and its evolution, Filthy Pierre, her appearance as General Jinjur of Oz, and the quirky story of Gene Wolfe and the jacket shot. She recounts the start of her professional writing career, with the mentorship and encouragement of Marion Zimmer Bradley, and receiving this note from first reader Terry Carr: "In the immortal words of Lee Hoffman, you have lost your return postage". She speaks about women in science fiction fandom, the difference that Star Trek made, and getting lost in the basements of the St. Louiscon (1969) hotel. There are a lot of stories to tell, and after 70 years, Juanita is still a fan. Fandom is home.

Reminder: This Saturday, we are restarting our Zoom History  sessions, and featuring Juanita Coulson. If you're not on the frequent Zoomer list, please send an rsvp to fanac@fanac.org. From the announcement: Juanita Coulson has been a marathon fanzine editor, a mainstay of the filk community, and a professional writer. She’s a little bit larger than life, and among other honors, has been a DUFF winner (2014), a Hugo winner (1965), Worldcon Fan GoH (1972), NASFiC GoH (2010), Filk Hall of Fame inductee (1998) and a Big Heart Award winner (2012). Juanita has been widely known in filk music circles since the 1950s for both her singing and her songwriting, and was instrumental in establishing filk as a part of SF conventions. For thirty-three years, she co-edited the fanzine Yandro with her husband Buck, publishing a massive 259 issues. Yandro was nominated for a Hugo Award every year for ten years in a row, from 1958–1967. It won the award in 1965, thus making Juanita Coulson one of the very first women editor s to be so honored. Juanita’s first novel, Crisis on Cheiron, came out in 1967. In this zoom history discussion, expect stories of 60+ years of fandom, how Juanita beat the steam boat whistle at NaSFic, mimeography, her Star Trek fanzines, and maybe even a song or two.
