I fell asleep listening to Kevin. When I woke the next morning the radio lay on my pillow,l it's battery drained. That weekend I dug through Nan's basement until I found the old electric radio I'd seen there and asked her if I could have it. It kept me company from that night on, and I fell alseep to the sounds of Smokey Robinson and Cher, Rod Stewart and The Cowsills. I'm not sure my parents knew how much the music had become a part of me, for if they had they might have taken the radio and destroyed it.
