|My 1970s Vintage Radio|
I can remember clicking it on to listen to a five minute sports show "Mitch in the Morning" while getting dressed for school.
Over the years I've listened to it while working outside on the porch or in the yard. No, its volume isn't great, so I have to be close, with no major noises like lawn mowers or hedge trimmers nearby.
I can still recall lying on the top bunk in my bedroom, with the radio on my dresser, listening to the Detroit Tigers playing the NY Yankees...with Ron Guidry on the mound or Thurman Munson up to bat.
The old red radio still has a main use. When the power goes out, it goes on.
My wife laughs, as do my daughters. But it still serves a function, and it isn't broken, so why throw it away or 'upgrade' to something more modern? (I'll post more on this topic soon).
