I remember Sid and his Capitol Radio, which was located at 1 South Main Street, just around the corner from the stores and such that were located on the right side of Westchester Avenue, walking down to Brick Oven Road. I believe he and his family lived on Qintard Drive in Port Chester. He always had a smile and was so knowledgeable about what he sold. My condolences to his family and friends.
