You can read the story right below, transcribed by Alternative Nation.
“People have picked up this music and they take it to a religious sort of fervor. I know people who have gotten married and decided to have families with this music.
I know people listening to this music who decided to join the marines. I know some people who are big fans of this music and joined the Marines and didn’t come back.
I know a guy who has requested that we played ‘Hot For Teacher’ as they lower the box. Literally, it’s in print.”
“You’ve got to take that seriously. When I walk by, small children stop crying, young house pets inexplicably obey your every command, women feel desirable, and all men see me as a brother. That’s the result of the music. That’s Friday, that’s not even Saturday. Saturday is the dance contest.”
