Roger K. Miller grew up in Binghamton in the 1950s and remembers the era and the
Square Deal Towns in his new memoir, The Chenango Kid. Miller tells Bill Jaker about
the Moon Block fire that wiped out his family’s domicile, classes at East Junior High,
movies at the Strand and Regus, kids’ adventures on both sides of the Viaduct and the
popular culture of the Decade That Never Ended.
