I have had a radio fixation since I was first aware that there was a little wooden box that would get warm and crackle and then let a statiicky sound emerge as the glass tubes came alive.
Then came music. Then came Radio Mystery Theater with the host E.G.Marshall, then there was Bob & Ray with Mary Backstage, noble wife, then music, then more music. There was classical, there was rock, there was country, all kinds of music and weekend countdowns. There was baseball, there were interviews, there was comedy and drama, radio had it all, even ads like Stiller & Meara with Blue Nun.
I still rely upon the friendliness which a radio brings and gives. There's music still and NPR and baseball even still and news and an entire world, even talk radio. AM/FM I check up and dial the down, each station delivers its own appeal and it's affordable and portable.
(but I miss the glass tubes)
