I know this is an ancient thread, but I thought it was worth commenting on.
LOTS of people are interested in atomic age stuff, I see variations of it all the time, e-post cards, vintage era pictures of 1950's house wives with political slogans on them, and lots of other things.
There are a few cafe-like places with the 60's modern look, people like those.
The thing is, no one really knows what to call it and people don't actively seek it out.
Thats what happened to me, I'd forgotten about the music (I used to listen to a man named Franklin Hobbes when I was younger.. I've always been highly interested in radio.. I once had so many antique radios that... well.. I digress..)
30 years later, I was searching for some java code and stumbled on Javas Bachelor Pad... quite by accident... then it all kind of came back... I used to really like that sort of music, and I'd forgotten all about it!
One would imagine others have had the same experience.
As to the lack of interest (or seeking it out)... frankly, facebook ISN'T helping.
I was on the net' back in the 90's.. even before the web.. now THAT was a social environment! what passes as "social media" these days is a crock, on many, many levels.
Peel people away from the monolithic corporate "social" sites and you'd probably see a lot more interest again.
