  1. This is splendid, Goutam. I especially like the idea of memories being like the shells you pick up from the sand. The radio has always been important to me, especially BBC Radio 4, which I still sometimes listen to via my laptop.

    1. Am so glad to know that you liked it. The radio was all that we had during our childhood years; TV came to my town only in 1984. So there are many memories. The prompt actually helped to unravel some of them and I wrote down the piece. Thank you so much. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™

  2. I enjoyed this and can relate. As a boy, I stayed awake many a night, with a radio under the covers, hoping to catch faraway AM signals bouncing off the ionosphere from places I’d never been. I still listen to shortwave from around the world now and then.

    1. So glad to know that you could relate to my writing. Those sudden bursts of sound caught on the radio from faraway unknown, places were really like some divine voice from the sky. Thank you so much for your comment which kindled some more memories for me. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™

  3. Beautifully written, Goutam. I remember listening to stations from faraway places on my transistor radio and pretending I was there. I lived in Florida at the time and used to get a lot of stations in Spanish.

    1. I started my work life from a remote mining town where television signal used to be very poor. So my romance with the transistor radio was re-kindled once again during those days. With practically nothing to do after work hours the transistor radio was a constant companion. Blissful days.. 😊

  4. Lovely post. In the end, memories are all we’re left with, I guess. It’s enough to listen to a song from bygone days, and there you go plunging into them, becoming a child once again. It happens a lot, the time travel, during reading as well. :))

    1. The FM channel these days have too much advertisement; so takes away the joy listening to the songs. I do listen to the songs of my times, may not be on the radio these days but certainly on other modes. The radio however still remains entrenched in the heart.
