Radio

by Al Smith

Lying there, drifting up into those ancient lights was exactly like looking into the past. It is looking into the past. History, I think, is just a property of light.

Charlie Fairbanks was born in the dead center of the United States at the dead center of the twentieth century.

Americans are going to the Moon and Charlie's sure he'll be the first one there. But as he shines his spotlight on the Moon, so too does it illuminate the darker side to his nation's history.

Radio is a story about memory, love and spaceships.
