RADIO AT MY HOUSE
ORE THAN once when I have been in the middle of an
English lesson I have heard the radio going full blast,
a woman screaming for help, a pistol shooting, and a
siren sounding-my little nephew enjoying "Dick Tracy, the
Man Hunter." Such a situation not only is nerve racking but
detracts your mind from what you are doing so that it is impos-
sible to concentrate.
Radios are terrible things sometimes. I, being a member of
a rather large family, can say sincerely that a radio can be most
annoying. In fact at times I wish we had no radio, and at other
times I feel as if I would like to have one which I can always
It is a usual thing in large families for each member to like
something different in entertainment as well as in food, and so it
is in my family. My father enjoys nothing but string music, his
favorite program being the "Grand Old Opry" from W. QS. M.
CNashvillej on Saturday nights. My mother has a fiair for Sym-
phony Orchestras. My sister likes classical music. My little
nephew likes drama, while I like o11ly jazz.
It seems as if every time I turn the radio on a good jazz
orchestra some one in the family will have in mind another
program he wants to hear and just must get. Then I think if
we only had a radio for each one I could get what I wanted, but
I realize this is impossible as my father is no John D. Rockefeller,
and besides with eight radios, my home would be a tower of
Babel. If I can't hear what I like I would rather not hear
Our radio seems to have more static than anything else.
It buzzes, pops and cracks continually. just as soon as I tune
in on Glenn Gray or Guy Lombardo the radio starts its popping
and cracking. At first I did not know what caused this. I
thought perhaps the aerial or the ground wire was loose, but
upon inspecting I found this not to be the case. I soon despaired
of finding the trouble, so my only recourse was to cut the radio
off. Later I found that when the wind was blowing the limbs of
a tree would strike the aerial.
Our radio, being an antique, is different from most radios. I
find that switching the aerial and ground wire changes the volume.
