9/15/09 Retro Show # 1 "There's Nothing Better Than Eating Fish!"
The Retro Show with Joe Pimenta airs every Tuesday at 2:30-3:30 pm on 90.3 FM. The Retro Show plays all your favorite hit songs from the 70s, 80s, and 90s.
On the 1st ever Retro Show today, media and Film student Umar Malik stopped by the studio. I allowed him to choose the songs for the day because it was his birthday on Sunday. We had a discussion on why he chose the media and film major, his current film classes, and what he is planning to do after college. I asked Umar about the upcoming films he is anticipating and his favorite and least favorite films of the summer. We both mentioned the film Gamer being very bad, which led Umar to do his incredible Gerard Butler impression. We also chatted about trying to start a new catchphrase, "There's nothing better than eating fish!" That conversation crashed and burned. We also had a brief discussion about the death of Patrick Swayze and how the film Ghost, made us both cry. He mentioned the saddest part of the film Ghost, was when Patrick Swayze became a ghost. We briefly talked about the songs Umar requested and we ended the show with Patrick Swayze's hit song She's Like The Wind.
