What a gripping story. I was a little girl doing the second world war. Times were tough and the radio was extremely important. Thank you.
This reminded me of stories my mother tells me of life during WWII.

I'm not sure that present tense works perfectly well in a nostalgic piece--consider a re-write in past tense if you do anything else with this story, and see which you like better.

The ending is powerful--good job!
I got a real sense of farm life in your story. You did a great job of "painting" each scene. Biscuits and bacon, Mmm,Mmm, good!
Oops! I meant to say ham instead of bacon, but I'll take both:-)
This made me think of a Walton's episode. I used to love that show. You surprised me with the date. Nice job.
