Retroist Podcast – Episode 167 – Fast Times at Ridgemont High

Aloha! On today’s show I talk all about the classic 1980’s comedy, Fast Times at Ridgemont High. I start off with a story about working in a video store and how Fast Times was a video that was very popular and had to be replaced a lot more often than other tapes. Then I talk about the film’s writer, director, cast, plot, characters, the TV show spinoff and much much more.

Vic Sage is back with a brand new “Why Should I Know This Person”. This week Vic talks about actor Ray Walston who played Mr. Hand.

Music on the show was provided by Peachy (the Mr. Hand of Wales), if you have musical needs, why not contact Peachy at And “like” him on his Facebook Page.
