On Episode 094 of the RETROZEST podcast, Curtis interviews ANTHONY D. GRATE, founder of retro-daze.org. Anthony has co-written the brand new book Tommy and the Order of Cosmic Champions with writer, sculptor and teacher Anthony J. Rapino. This book, to be released in the Fall of 2022, is set in the year 1988, features many cleverly placed ’80s pop culture references and has a wonderful, inspirational message! Also, in true ’80s sci-fi/fantasy franchise form, a great line of corresponding merchandise is available on the book’s website!
