Synopsis
Joe grew up in a Jewish-American family in Rockaway Beach in Queens, New York during the Golden Age of Radio. Joe recalls how radio influenced his formative years from the late 1930s through New Year's Eve, 1944. Stories of the effect of favorite radio shows on his family members are recounted, as is Joe's love of adventure shows which colored his daydreams and shaped the way he viewed reality as a child.
