In the summer of 1983 we moved to Watford City, ND. While walking, I discovered a discarded cassette tape in a ditch. This was music unlike any I'd ever heard and it gave me hope. The cassette was Kraftwerk (The Man Machine). Story appears in the chapter titled, "What For Watford."
When the band didn't show up to provide live entertainment, the manager approached me in a panic, asking if I'd breakdance for the rowdy rednecks in the bar. He offered $50 and a prime rib dinner. This was the song I chose (as I put my life in my hands) that night. Referenced in the chapter titled, "Breakdancin' Dana Hansen."
