Actually true.

We keep radios around the farm so we can talk to each other when we’re out of earshot. Generally, we keep one of them on so we don’t need to worry about someone in the trailer radioing someone in the house. Since they have something like 127 channels, we don’t get a lot of chatter from other people. One night, we had some people over (a rare occasion) and were sitting around shooting the shit.

Suddenly the radio goes off.

The people on it are just barely in range so it’s garbled.

We hear a man shouting into the radio, a woman responding in distress, and then a child’s voice.

And then nothing.

The radios don’t reach out of our valley.
