Youth Waves #8 - My Dad the Boiler Maker

By Eric Orwin

Salt Lake City, UT – Today's story is from Eric Orwin who lives in Salt Lake City. Eric loves his dad. His dad is a boiler maker, who welds metal every day. This is one of my favorite pieces in our series Youth Waves, not because it's polished and professional, because its not. Eric is 13 years old and you'll notice he reads haltingly. But this radio piece is innocent and fresh and real. And it shows a teenager's pure love for his dad.
