Rad (1986)

Rad Quote: “God, what I wouldn’t give to go ass-sliding with you right now.” – Cru Jones

BMX bikes! “Send Me An Angel!” Lori Loughlin in a Mongoose bicycle suit! It’s the Shat The Movies episode we’ve been waiting six months to debut: “Rad!”

Listener Frank Falls commissioned this 1986 bicycle-racing stuntfest, promoted it and put thunder in all our hearts. But in today’s Xtreme Games environment, can Cru Jones’ speed and tricks still wow a crowd? Does the bicycle boogie still inspire romance? Will Gene Lyons ever learn to bunny hop?

In this episode, Big D questions whether the bad guys really knew anything about making money, praises the town of Cochrane for being so pro-kid and tells the tale of how his dream bike was stolen while he was returning a VHS rental.

Gene adds to the mix by highlighting 1980s hot dog prices, pointing out some gruesome wrecks and pleading with the Shat The Movies audience to validate Cru’s race-winning spin move.

Plot Summary: “Rad” The story of Cru Jones, a young man who can overcome all obstacles that prevent him from participating in the BMX race “Helltrack.” As he works towards his dream, Cru falls in love with Christian, an amateur racer.
