On Episode 048 of the RETROZEST podcast, Curtis conducts an exclusive interview with DEAN CAMERON (aka Jeff Spicoli) in celebration of the 35th Anniversary of the short-lived FAST TIMES TV Show (which premiered on CBS on March 5, 1986)! This series was based upon the 1982 movie FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH, and in addition to Dean Cameron starred Claudia Wells, Courtney Thorne-Smith, Patrick Dempsey, Wally Ward, James Nardini, Jason Hervey, Vincent Schiavelli and Ray Walston.

Other aspects of Dean’s career are discussed as well, including Spencer, The Best Times, Summer School (wherein he played Francis “Chainsaw” Gremp) and his involvement with the glam rock parody band Steel Panther!
