Welcome friends. Our trip back to the 1980's today focuses on movies about rock bands. We have Joan Jett from her movie with Michael J. Fox called Light of Day, Fire, Inc. (which no one has heard of, but it's a great song written by Meatloaf's writing colaborater Jim Steinman) from the 1984 film Streets of Fire, and we have John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown band providing the music for Eddie and the Cruisers. The cool coincidence, is the lip-synching lead singer in Eddie and the Cruisers is the same guy who plays the hero in Streets of Fire (but does not sing or lip-synch). It's Michael Pare, who was also the bad daddy who left Sandra Bullock in Hope Floats, and he also played the head cool student in Ralph's class on The Greatest American Hero.
