Part One: (Running Time: 18:05)

Part Two: (Running Time: 31:22)

Part Four: (Running Time: 91:50)

  • This time Scott really does die, thankfully in the hospital but lives on to create Rock For Tots and his Screamin’ Angles. Scotty also discusses how he was let go after 24 years at WRIF and looks ahead to a bright future.
