Radio Contest Surprises

On Sunday, I wrote a post about it being my youngest nephew's birthday and mentioned that I remember watching a DVD of the 1986 version of Little Shop of Horrors when I heard he was born.

I went on to state that, a few weeks ago, he watched the film himself but he wasn't keen on it and switched it off. I surmised that the current generation isn't that keen on the movie.

The reason why I am back to this topic today is because I wanted to share something funny with you.

The post was written a few days before it went live. Somewhere sandwiched in-between me writing the post and it being published on Sunday was a radio contest I heard that made me realise that the, as I called it - 'current generation', might still like Little Shop of Horrors.

On one of the afternoons after the post was written, I was listening to the radio and there was a contest between a grandfather and his daughter. They were each asked to name a list of things and the player who mentioned the most items would be declared the winner.

The youngster, who is the same age as my nephew, was asked to name things from her favourite subject: musicals. As soon as I knew that was her topic, I thought to myself 'I wonder if she'll mention Little Shop of Horrors'. 

I didn't even have to wait. The show was the first thing she said.

Impressive. To be fair, she even threw out musicals I hadn't heard of before. 

What was also an 'ahh, of course that would happen!' moment was after she had won, the presenter asked if she'd like to say hello to any friends. 

She went on to greet friends from her primary school.

It was the very same school I went to as a child!
