A classic in context
Hokey story by Heinlein.
It wasn't much science fiction. I wouldn't have done the story at all.
Of course, he has some classic sci fi. This just wasn't up to his standards.
The actors were fine, the premise was stupid.
Not turn on Country music radio.
This was a story about a blind musician. It could have been done anywhere. It was not what I expected and was pretty lame.
