In Remembrance of Harold Sunshine

Harold Sunshine

In remembrance of our behind the scene supporter (really, he kept me on top of watching all the shows I reported on and movies–in fact he would ask if I had my recommendations and topics for podcast night), we repost my reading of “Casey at the Bat.” He was a major baseball fan and also taught literature and the humanities, so I went to him for help with the poem’s cadence and inflections when I recorded this for National Poetry Month. In addition, he knew the importance of Need Coffee and DragonCon to me. He was a veritable Charlie from Charlie’s Angels.

  • Harold was a good friend and often a guest in our home. We attended baseball games with him (and Karen)concerts (at Ravinia)and he had a perennial seat at our Thanksgiving table. Karen came to visit me this past year and we had many long conversations about our friendship.
