My father, Charles V Piliero, served in the navy during WWII and while at sea got an idea for a song eventially written in 1947 titled Nitey Nite based on the perspective of a child whos soldier-parent was "away" and would be coming home "soon". The song was filed away in a shoe box until he retired and moved to Lake City, Florida. There, in 1999, he retrived the song for a local girl to sing on Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion contest: Talent from Towns Under 2000 Contest held in New York City on April 15, 2000. ( this show and song can be heard on the archives ) Leilani Clark was 12 years old at the time and won the contest hands down.
