Okay, I confess, I’m a late bloomer when it comes to falling in love with the fellas from Bon Jovi. Back in the 80′s, I was listening to dance music (yes, I got RickRolled), and not paying attention to JBJ and his gang.

Fast forward to 2011. I was asked to be a judge at the annual Washington State Firefighter Calendar Auditions – full of buff barely-clothed men and women flaunting their stuff on-stage to be chosen for the sexy calendar. I asked one of the contestants this question (because we were also supposedly judging their creativity):

“What song goes through your head when you’re driving to a fire in the middle of the night?”

This young firefighter dropped to his knees and belted out these lyrics:

I’m a cowboy
On a steel horse I ride
I’m wanted – Dead or alive
Wanted ! (the crowd belted it out, too)
Dead or alive!

Exhilarating – I went home and listened to the entire album Slippery When Wet. Love.

Then, I get turned onto how a New Jersey-ite feels about Jon Bon Jovi – from the movie, Win Win.

Now, like the actress Amy Ryan, it’s me and JBJ, all the way.

Callahan – Jack FM. Win Tix to see Bon Jovi at the T-dome in October here.
