If we’d been broadcasting out of the studio in New York, we’d actually have gotten to meet them, which would have been uber cool.
I admit that I actually saw Footloose – twice – when it was released back in 1984.
I even had the novelization of the movie.
What do you want from me? I was in 7th grade.
Anyway, to my surprise I checked the mail on Saturday and found a package from Sirius. I figured it was a book or something for an upcoming guest.
Instead, to my complete and total surprise, was the copy of Footloose on DVD that you see in this photo.
There was a post-it note on the front where our producer, Adam Hamway, had written “Peel This.”
I peeled away the sticker only to find that the DVD had been autographed by Kevin Bacon himself.
If you’d told me back in 1984 that someday I’d not only get a chance to host a radio show, but would someday interview Kevin Bacon, his brother, and get an autographed copy of Footloose on something called a “DVD,” I’d tell you that you were crazy.
38-year-old guys shouldn’t get geeky over stuff like this.
