Flopcast 282: Bring Home the Bacon Brothers
It's a post-DragonCon catch-up show, with concert reports on the Bacon Brothers (we now have zero degrees of separation from the star of Footloose), They Might Be Giants (we celebrated with a whole day of old friends, shuttle buses, and watermelon), and Micky Dolenz (touring without Tork this year, but still delivering all your Monkees favorites). We also have a quick correction from last week's show, and it involves the Hardy Boys and the Partridge Family, as all corrections should. Plus: For National Whatever Day, we're looking back at 1982, including the opening of EPCOT Center (you know you want to ride through a giant golf ball) and the top ten songs from 35 years ago this week (we keep forgettin' how Michael McDonald sounds exactly like Michael McDonald).
Kevin and Felicity found The Bacon Brothers to be a solid band that would likely still be appreciated without the star connection, at least on a regional level.
Two weeks later at the same theater: The Dolenz Siblings, Micky and Coco!
Arrow's Katie Cassidy is the daughter of David, shown here on a 1983 magazine cover with half-brother Shaun. (We should have saved this correction for one more week!)
