When I was a kid, I had a fascination with radio. I’d sit at the desk in my room, turning the AM dial slowly, and keep a log of all the out of town stations that I picked up. (It was just a reular, plastic General Electric clock radio, with a clock on one side and the dial on the other.)
I was so into it that my parents bought me a short-wave radio as an elementary school graduation present. That was cool too – I probably spent more time in front of that thing than I do now on Facebook.
