In 1980, a movie was released that the world wasn't ready for, it starred Olivia Newton-John, Gene Kelly and Michael Beck and it was called Xanadu. Billed as a musical fantasy film, it didn't do well at the box office because it was too much for the ordinary movie-going audience, but in the years since its release, it has developed a cult following and has also become one of my favorite movies. When I first mentioned this episode as a possibility, my friend Paul Francis Sullivan, a.k.a. Sully Baseball said, "I will do the Xanadu episode with you." And I was thrilled to find someone else who loved it as much as I did and loved it for what it is.

Sully and I have a conversation about the movie, about its stars, about the music, about other movies of its time and much, much more. I hope that when you're finished with this episode, you appreciate Xanadu as much as we do and I hope that you learn some facts about the film that you may not have known before.
