Crank Crank Radio!
Not many people know this, but the popular Shamblers song "Crank Radio" is actually based on my deep and abiding desire to own a crank radio (just in case of an emergency). Last summer, I actually donated platelets to the New York Blood Center three times in one month, in part because I knew that it would earn me the prize of a crank radio. (Also because I have a surplus of platelets and people with cancer really need them.) It got here yesterday, and I broke it within 5 minutes of getting it out of the box. I got a little overzealous with the cranking, I guess. Good thing I have a platelet donation scheduled for this week!
