Good Morning Iowa! How A Robin Williams Movie Steered Brain To A Career In Radio

I grew up with Robin Williams.  From Mork and Mindy, to Aladin.  From Comic Relief to Good Will Hunting.  We all have a favorite Robin Williams moment.  That’s why his death on Monday left us all gasping.  As I sat down last night and reflected on what Robin Williams film made the biggest impact on me, the answer was easy.  Good Morning Vietnam.

 

The 1987 film featured Robin playing Disc Jockey Adrian Cronauer, and the wild antics he featured on his radio show during the Vietnam War.  The movie fascinated me, and would lead me down the path to my career in radio.  I had the soundtrack on cassette.  I would fast forward through the songs and listen to Robin’s radio bits.

That’s hands down, my favoirte memory of Robin Williams.  What is yours?
