America used to be a very nice place, united and at peace. But God was asked to leave, and it’s never been the same.

In a mosaic of true moments wrapped in the warm jacket of imagination and memory, Philco invites readers back to the heart and innocence of an America as far removed from today’s reality as 78 rpm records and drive-in movies.
