Get ready for a very special episode of the Cult Film Club. On our last episode Pax, Jaime and I broke out our BMX bikes and took a look at the 1986 sportsploitation classic Rad. To cap off that discussion we had the opportunity to chat with the star of the movie, Cru Jones himself, Mr. Bill Allen.
We talk about the film, Bill’s penchant for extreme hobbies, his music career, what it’s like to be associated with a cult classic film and to have inspired countless athletes and filmmakers. We also dig into his new memoir, My Rad Career, which highlights his 30 years spent in front of and behind the cameras. It was an honor and an amazing pleasure to chat with one of our film heroes and we hope you enjoy the conversation. So without further to do, queue up Send Me An Angel, put on your sequined shirts, and jump on your bike as we talk to a supremely Rad dude!
