Years ago, during my daily commute to work, I listened to a morning radio show out of LA—The Mark and Brian Show. In the winter of 1993, they were hyping a new movie about to be released, Tombstone, starring Kurt Russell, Val Kilmer, Sam Elliott and a host of others. One morning in particular, they spent a lot of time gushing about how cool and sexy Kurt Russell was. They offered a hypothetical situation: What if a guy committed a felony and the punishment was to have sex with another guy. Any guy he wanted. Just once. Which guy would it be?
Both Mark and Brian agreed the only choice was Kurt Russell and went on to explain why. This went on all morning long, ad nauseum, about the brilliant and desirable Kurt Russell.
Apparently, at some point, Russell caught the broadcast. Flattered and with extraordinary style, he arranged for a dozen red roses to be sent to the radio hosts that morning.
How cool is THAT?
By the way, Mark and Brian are in their 25th year as morning radio hosts in LA. I wonder, does Kurt Russell continue to send gifts?
