Black and White Television Shows

Golden Age of Radio

Stories about his childhood:

Melancholy in Monessen,

A football star’s future—

Shortened by the family’s business.

Met a woman from Charleroi,

“Virginia is for Lovers.”

Completed a Family in 1971:

A corner house he purchased at Henry Street

In the borough of N. Belle Vernon.

I recall (those 14 vivid years

And the 16 visiting years),

What I want to recall…

A mill custodian, a provider,

A man who exercised like a prizefighter.

I waited for dad to play football,

To watch Black and White television Shows and

Listen to the Golden Age of Radio—

Stories about my childhood.
