Sitting In Red
I'm 15 and it's 1974. I sit in my red room with the headphones on listening to the upper end of FM around 107.9. That's where the progressive radion stations are. You remember those stations; the ones that play Yes, Pink Floyd, Argent, ELP, Eno and others. My bedroom was in red. Red carpet, red curtains, red bedspread, red bean bag chair and a hanging red light. Headphones are state of the art Sony and the stereo is cranking. Lost in the sounds of Pink Floyd.
