October 26, 2021

Everyone has a story. He gets them to tell it. Lori's delighted to welcome broadcast veteran Aron Bender to do a little east coast swing as they sing the praises of Boyz II Men’s 1991 breakout album, Cooleyhighharmony.

Laugh along with these high school buddies as they chat "sexy sex songs," divo behavior, Aron's B2M-adjacent boy band days (and epic Michael McCary impression), and the "cool kid club" they created as nerdy freshman. Later, cry along with these two old friends as they discuss the importance of normalizing male emotion, the pain of losing everything, and the bittersweet journey to learn about life and love in the process.
