  1. This evoked fond memories of a time when I sat with my father next to the old radio and we listened to Nat King Cole and the likes. It is unforgettable. I enjoyed your defiant ending

  2. Hi Paul wonderful poem, can relate to it with ease, to quote Jim Morrison, it was back then when every thing was simpler and yet more confused … though it was great, at the time it was also terrible because of the oppression and brutality of Apartheid, but love the music and the radio, I think we were very lucky to grow up with the radio. Best wishes and blessings, Charles.

  3. Actually the music has taken a backseat to on air personalities, ad driven radio , and heavy rotation of what’s considered popular. Just bring back the music. Thank you, Paul.

  4. Wow, powerful closing line, Paul–I agree; and I, too, miss the years when radio was FUN–every song seemed to inform the phase of my life, dancing and singing along badly but happy. Maybe that’s why I like the TV commercials where they’ve used great songs–like the Geico one (?) with Roy Orbison’s, “I ride the highway, I’m goin’ my way–I leave the story untold….”
