Producer Rikke Houd and illustrator Anthony Calvert tell the story of Pat Herbert, founder of the Hurdy Gurdy Museumn Ireland, recalling the time he heard radio for the very first time.

In an little cottage in Ireland with no electricity, but a battery driven radio, people from many farms gathered in the dark listening, and it changed his life forever.

A story that parallels the birth of radio with what is, in a way, the birth of this young boy, seeing the light of the radio from within the darkness and all its possibilities.
