    Today's Brush with Greatness comes from a long distance radio listener, Mary Kovack. Mary's great encounter? The medium of radio, no less:

    "I think one of my earliest memories is of turning the dial on a big, old, brown console radio. Later we got a modern green plastic one that sat on the counter in the kitchen. I wish I still owned one of my transistor radios, especially the one that I bought with my Christmas money when I was eleven. It was a shiny silver receiver, from Canadian Tire. It had a leather cover, with a handle that snapped over it , with cut-outs for the speakers and the control dials. I took it everywhere with me.

    A while ago I moved away from Toronto but I still get a strong signal from JAZZ.FM91 so that I can enjoy the programming every day while I am working."
