Daniel! Just came in to hear you talk about your dad and World War II. Hits close to home. My parents are Holocaust survivors and met in the literal rubble of Poland. They too never talked much about their experience and at the end of the day I recognize their PTSD was something real.

Which is all to say, heartfelt feelings going back to you.

Thank you, Philthy! I'll check it out, Rev! Thx!

Suddenly remembered one of the first ever book reports I wrote for school was on a "Man From U.N.C.L.E." novelisation. (British spelling in honour of Vaughn's work on "Hustle")

Thank you, JakeG. A couple who met in Poland as the war ended lived in my building - first time I ever saw the number tattoos... They were inseparable - always walking around the block together. One day she was gone. A few months later he followed... I couldn't speak to them due to the language barrier, but still think of them both and what they must've gone through...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm Philthy woman:

The stories of our families especially if they involved trauma are hard to come by sometimes and seeking them out seems to make them hide deeper in the shadows from what I have seen. On my dad's side my family came here running away from the Nazi's after running away from the communists but I still don't understand it all. The one person open with me, my Baba told me stories openly when she was alive and I was too young to contextualize. I think she liked that I didn't understand enough to box up her stories and I just listened. But now I have these confused memories and I wish I could talk with her and hear her tell them again,
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56pm Andrew Waterloo:

wow... I just copied Tipsy's Trip Tease to my tablet. One of the songs sample this JJP heavily.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm Scraps:

yep! Trip Tease is a great album, too

Avatar 11:19pm coelacanth:

that was intense Daniel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm muhrvis:

So poignant and painful to hear these poems and stories... As a teen, my late father was a German soldier on the Russian front in Finland after 1941. He grew up in a German-speaking village in Yugoslavia, and was conscripted when the Nazis invaded Yugoslavia in '41. When it was over, he just wanted to get the fuck out of Europe for good. First he had to find his mom and sister (my grandma and aunt) who had escaped from a prison camp where they were held by the newly formed communist government in Yugoslavia. They fled to Hungary, then Austria essentially in their bare feet. He eventually found them in a Red Cross refugee camp in Austria and they made their way to the US a couple years later. He was so good to me and such a nice person.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I don't recall seeing Man From U.N.C.L.E. at our house. I think my dad liked Rat Patrol better.
Avatar 11:40pm JakeGould:

These stories are great! Thanks for everyone for sharing and for Daniel Blumin sharing on air as well.

As for me my dad gave me a glimpse of what he went through when we went to see “The Empire Strikes Back” for a second time in 1980. It was second time for me; first for him. Anyway, he didn’t give a shit about the film going in… Until one key scene at the beginning of the film.

When Han Solo cut open the dead Tauntaun to keep Luke warm in the cold on Hoth? THAT is when my dad became engaged. On the bus ride home he told me explicitly he liked that scene because it was exactly what soldiers in Europe would do if they needed warmth/shelter and there was no other choice: Find a dead animal, cut out it’s guts and crawl in.

I was 12 when he told me that and it was one of the few glimpses at his personal hell he shared with the family. So I guess “Star Wars” helped my dad lessen his PTSD?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm Daniel Blumin:

muhrv, wish I could participate more in these stories too but this music and reading business... ay yi yi. It's great to hear these stories, though.
My grandfather was also in Finland but in 1939 when the Soviets invaded. Think he was also just a teen. He was wounded. Once he recovered, he trained as a medic, and was sent back out when the USSR was invaded in '41. One of a very small number who made it through the war to '45 (though he was wounded again along the way)...
Avatar 11:44pm coelacanth:

Thank you Jake.

You’re welcome, Coelacanth!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm muhrvis:

Unfortunately, I didn't hear the segment where you told the story Daniel. I will listen to it later... I have to be honest and say that I think the PTSD suffered by my parents was passed on to me in some ways through the way they taught me to deal with situations.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm Scraps:

Wow. I haven't listened to this in thirty years. I had this on LP, but not CD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm muhrvis:

OK, I am done being sensitive and shit. Back to reveling in the dark music!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52pm Ken From Hyde Park:

My dad was in the army in the 50s and was told his unit was shipping out to Korea. He and some buddies drove home for a couple days to say goodbye to their families. As luck would have it, they got back to their base and found that the mission was cancelled.
