While traveling through Anderson, South Carolina, I had stopped to take some pictures of some old buildings when a local started talking to me about the T.L. Hanna High School statue. She informed me that it was often photographed by people passing through.
I remembered seeing the movie “Radio” but did not realize the story was about the school here in Anderson. This is a life size sculpture of James Robert Kennedy (“Radio”) next to the football field in the back of the school.
Bill never fails to find the absolute coolest stuff! These are great pics (I love the perspective in the close-up shot)!
I remember seeing the movie too. It’s a great Sunday afternoon “feel good” film. To learn more about the real-life “Radio”, see the Links of Interest at the end of this post. Believe it or not … “Radio” is still attending TL Hanna as a “permanent Junior“.
