His story extends to his determined but often stymied journey into broadcast journalism -- including his first job at a radio station, where he learned, after he was hired, that his work included burning the stations trash every Friday. And all of it is told through the prism of his deep and abiding love for his father, who, one way or the other, was with him every step of the way.
