The Noise [Nov. 8th, 2015|12:27 pm]
Tony Grist
My mother watches television from just after lunch until she turns in for the night. Today because it's the yearly celebration of militarism Remembrance Sunday she's started earlier. I won't say I never watch with her but mostly I keep my distance. Of course- small house, deaf old lady- I'm never out of earshot. Over the past two and a half years I've come to think of TV as The Noise.

Growing up my mother always had the radio on. I don't think I really knew what silence was or how much I needed it to function until I left home.

Looking back I think my mother was just desperately trying not to drown in her own thoughts. Radio 2 was her buoyancy aid.

My mother had the radio on most of the time when I was a kid. This was before The numbered the BBC radio stations.
I think what she mostly listened to was The Home Service.
