This Sunday is the 40th Anniversary of the movie Animal House. One of the most iconic films ever made. John Belushi, Tom Hulce, Kevin Bacon and so many more stars emerged in the movie. Today I still find myself quoting the movie. Back in 2004 we decided to throw a Toga party for the 25th Anniversary of the movie. People got so excited it started to get bigger and bigger. First it was going to be just a Toga party with a fun local band. Then we decided to add a car show to it. Then we decided to have the band from the movie, Otis Day and the Knights, come and do a free concert outdoors behind, what was then the Hanger Bar and Grill". It was one of the funnest promotions I have ever done in radio. Now back in 2004 there were cell phones but they were ntohing like they are today. The videos were horrible so I don't have any video from that day but I did manage to find a few photos.
Here is clip that put Otis Day and the Knights on the map when they appeared in Animal House.
