"Fast Times at Ridgemont High" is a classic movie with a rock 'n' roll sensibility (and soundtrack). With the Oscars approaching, Dad Rock hosts Patrick Foster and Jim Lenahan dedicate a Bonus Track to the 1982 film, one of their favorites, and interview Bob Romanus, who portrayed Mike Damone. "The Dream Police, da-da-da-da-da-da-da." Romanus is also a musician and plays in a few Los Angeles bands. His primary musical outlet is Poppa's Kitchen, a two-piece group (with Steve Feldman) that has recorded eight albums.
