music through the night

Since the time I was a teenager, I have preferred to sleep with an FM radio cooing softly in the room through the night. For the last 15 years or so, net stream replaced the radio. No talky commercials. Much better.

1984, I was in Guadalajara (MX) and woke up in the middle of the night to CCR’s Midnight Special on the FM. It filled me with joy and peace. It was Christmas Day.

I pressed tightly against the sweetie beside me and drifted back to sleep. I remember it all as if it were yesterday.
