I reach for the radio and tune in 1270 WXYZ. 15 minutes later we are crossing the bridge to the island. We head for the South end and Scott fountain, an enormous marble edifice, illuminated by different colored lights that changed every 15 seconds or so, blue to red to green. It was a magnificent sight and we had it all to our selves. Freighters glided by on the Detroit river We would sit silently and watch. Then we'd head back to the two family flat on Chalmers listening to WXYZ, coconspirator's on a small adventure. The music seemed exotic and far away.
Then I heard "My Little Red Book" by "Love" and I was hooked.
