8/7/2009 Across The Board


Here is my tribute to the man who made high school in the 80's tolerable, John Hughes. Without the soundtracks to his movies, Across The Board would not exist. This is a very personal episode for me. I hope you enjoy my tribute to the man who put Shermer on the map.

For those of you who live in the Twin Cities, my good friend DJ of Transmission, Jake Rudh, is celebrating the music movies of John Hughes this wednesday night (August 12th). Click here http://www.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/event.php?eid=115308247417 for more details.
