Colin McEnroe Show: What Do You Miss Most?

What do you miss most? Is it a person? Maybe your grandmother's cooking ... or an ex-lover who you never got over. Maybe you miss a place, an old torn down building or a resturant that served a dish you can't find anywhere else.

Perhaps it's a moment in time that you miss, or the freedom of being a college student. Maybe you miss VHS tapes, vinyl albums or your tacky Christmas sweater.

Today was one of our most-called shows ever. At times, our courageous intern fielded upwards of six calls a minute. Fortunately, we got a lot of your voices on the air.

But if you didn't have a chance to talk with Mark, we still want to hear from you. What do you miss? How has missing this thing shaped you as a person?

What I Miss

Civility. It's been gone for a long time, so long in fact that people don't recognize it when they see it.

I miss...

...kids playing in the streets(kickball, big wheels/bikes, running races, with parents looking out for them "stoop sitting." "CAR!!!" "Game ON!"

Email from Thomas:

Bath and Body Works used to have an aromatherapy scent called Balance that was lemongrass and watermimt that reminds me of a great summer in Florida.

I miss my Uncle Don who passed away in January of this year. He was 76, mentally retarded, and the joy of my life. I shared guardianship of him with my sister and his brother, but I think I was closest to him. He lived with me for some years until he moved to an assisted living facility, but remained a constant in my life. He loved everything about life, and was never complained. Everything I do daily, everywhere I go, there is a memory of Uncle Don. I am fortunate to have had him in my life and think of him daily as I go about my routine. I miss him so much and don't know if I'll every get over the loss.

Email from Scott:

I miss when radio stations always said the name of each song and the artist...so I could go to the store and buy the tunes I liked. When this stopped...is when I could no longer buy music. I never made the transition to clairvoyance or MTV required to find out the name of a song and an artist. I bet I'm not alone. Thanks.

Chocodiles - "It takes a while to eat a Chocodile." We can't buy them anymore.
