Aww my transistor radio, it even went to bed with me so I could listen to Rock N Roll before I fell asleep.
RCA Victor 1034 I remember listening to Sargent Preston of the Yukon, Fibber McGee and Molly, Sky King, The green Hornet,The Shadow, Amos & Andy,Eager Burgan & Charley Mc Carthy ( Mortimer Sneerd) and of course,Mom's soaps, As the world turns, Guiding light and more.
Lol I Love this color; even though I doubt this is the color Jefferson had in the room with him I think the radio in the book symbolizes so much. I took the radio as being Jefferson's voice and freedom in a way. He was so happy with a radio and Grant was willing to give him happiness again for once. Knowing that sometimes the wants of a person in PRISON are so small makes all my wants and "needs" so immature.
