    I still remember listening to WCCO radio (THE main radio station of the upper midwest back in the day) with my dad and the reporting of it missing...

    Gordon's memorial song the crew and ship still gives me the shivers when I hear it.

    Ya know, for someone that has not been around the big water of the great lakes, it's really hard to imagine how bad the conditions were to have had that ship go down. And I agree, that song is really haunting.
