This week on Sound Effect, we share stories some of the biggest fans in the region. We start by learning some meeting a huge fan of 70’s and 80’s arena rock, who was called on stage recently to perform in place of the lead singer of Loverboy. Next, we meet a woman who found a personal connection with the movie Amadeus. Also, we learn how the worlds of being a nerd and burlesque are paring up. Then, one of Seattle’s biggest sports fans shares how cheering on his teams kept him going. We’ll meet a family that has been on The Price Is Right three times and won big. Finally, we hear an audio fan letter that is twenty years in the making.
