(And now for some thoughts from our friend Ted Maturo who contributed this guest blog about skipping work to see the broadcast) :

When I was 13 years old, my family moved from Brooklyn to Staten Island. 

To boot, we moved in October; so I moved mid-school year.  I was in 8th grade.  I felt lots of peer pressure to try and “fit in” at my new school. 

A few months after the move, I was walking to the bus stop, and a kid Ronnie who lived on my block said he and a few friends who were blowing off school that day to hang at his friend’s house, and asked if I wanted to come. 

I had never played hooky before, but figured why not.  Again – pressure to fit in. 

We made a day of it – watching movies and doing other stuff I shouldn’t have been doing. 

Later on, at about 7 p.m. when I was home, my doorbell rang. 

Of course it was Ronnie’s mom, asking my mom if she knew where I was that day.

Turns out, we were spotted on the bus by one of Ronnie’s mom’s friends, and didn’t get off at the stop near our school. 

Boy, did I catch it that night.  Needless to say that was my first and last time playing hooky. 

This Friday is your chance to play hooky from work (at least for the morning) and join Free Beer & Hot Wings for their live show at River Rock Restaurant and Marina Bar on Route 70 in Brick. 

I guess if you’re gonna play hooky it should be for a good reason.  And live radio at its funniest is maybe a good reason…just don’t tell your boss (or your Mom) that I said so.  And most importantly, don’t get spotted getting off at the wrong bus stop.
