Life in Lexington

Show Summary Details

Preview

The Niles' trip to Kentucky took them first to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and then to Pittsburgh, where they spent Easter with their close friends, the Eliots. When they arrived at Lexington they checked into the Phoenix Hotel and had dinner with President McVey and his wife. Through President McVey, Niles got to know Elmer Sulzer, the director of the university's radio station. Niles was familiar with radio through his work in Chicago and New York City. He was a highly respected performer who could talk eloquently about music. Lexington offered a new beginning; they were liberated from the memories of New York City and Brasstown that haunted Niles's past and free of the family entanglements of Albany and Louisville.
