Blast from The Past! – Tom Snyder’s Tomorrow Show Segment On "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" and the 8th Street Playhouse NYC – 1979 (Video)

In a distance galaxy, far far away…….

Well actually it was 1979 in NYC’s Greenwich Village at the 8th Street Playhouse.  Tom Snyder’s “The Tomorrow Show” did a segment on The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the 8th Street Floorshow.  And I was there.  Not only was I there I was a member of the floorshow. (I told you I was old)

So when you watch this report.  (And yes the quality is not that great but it IS from 1979 after all) and you hit the 5 Minute and 21 second mark and wonder who that cute 17 year old twink is playing Eddie and being interveiwd.

Well thats me.  (Please be gentle)

My kingdom for a time machine…..
