A cherished memory: Listening to the radio when I was but a kid

Another great memory for me: the number of hours that I spent listening to the radio when I was but a kid.

From the earliest of years, I used to sit under our radio which was mounted on the wall.  I would pull up a chair and there I would sit for hours just listening to any and everything.  There was the music, the news, and then those countless shows with all of their tips, hints, and contests.

I listened to them all and had so much fun.  In those days Braille books were just a luxury for me and they were  very scarce so the next best thing was the radio and oh how I loved just listening to it.

I can still hear the voices of those wonderful announcers in my mind.  There was Don, June, Valerie, Barbara, Jim, Dick, Ann, Chris, and oh so many others.

I especially loved listening to the recipes and the contests and I even won a few of them!  Then the radio was where I started to get interested in the news; local and international alike, and it was Dad who was my constant coach.

So many wonderful memories for me to remember and keep close to my heart, and oh yes!  Those ongoing soap operas with Mom, Granny and me listening in and my brothers dropping in and out to listen.
