But, Kate... Richard was not naked in this magazine, wasn't he ???KateR wrote: ↑Tue Dec 17, 2019 6:16 pmNot so many people with RDA regularly on their minds?
Okay, so with the movie "Cats" coming out this week, here is another funny story to share to explain why "Cats" reminds me of RDA...
When I lived in NJ, one of the easy ways to see a Broadway play was to take the community bus into the city for shows. In 1986, my friend and I, my mother and her friend, and my grandmother and HER friend all took the bus into NYC to see "Cats." We got into town a little early, and my friend hadn't had time for dinner after work, so she and I dashed down to the corner donut shop for her to get something to eat before the show. As she was picking out her donut, I glanced out the window to the magazine stand on the sidewalk, and there was RDA's face on the cover of Playgirl magazine. By 1986, I was already a big fan of RDA, and this was the first time I had ever seen an article about him anywhere, but I just didn't know how to buy a magazine with naked men and bring it back to the theater where my mother and GRANDMOTHER were waiting. So I didn't buy it. Instead, a couple of days later, I went to another shop (not TOO near my home) and bought the first article in my collection of RDA articles.
So yes, in a weird way, Cats, Playgirl, and RDA are all connected in my mind.
despite the fact that he said it very often "you have to see me naked"....
I can imagine how embarrassing it was... But now... You have something to tell and something funny in your mind
Thanks a lot for sharing this sweet memory.
