Funny story.....this fantasy dates back to high school. I worked in the public library and the local radio DJ, who was probably 10 years older than me, would come in the library every day to read the paper and I thought he was pretty cool, so on Saturday nights while I was babysitting and he was on the radio I would call up and anonymously request this song.....more than once! Good thing they didn't have caller ID back then!
