23 years ago, Bon Jovi played a sold out show at the Civic Center. This was on the Keep the Faith Tour and we are pretty sure this was the last time they came to Portland. It’s a particularly memorable show for me even though I wasn’t there. The concert was the night before Valentines Day and my wife, Sherry went to the show with her sister, Holly. WBLM did a backstage meet n greet for winners and I managed to sneak my wife and her sister in as well. While they were back there oooing and ahhing over Jon and Richie, Sherry decided to announce to everyone that she was pregnant! Cheers all around! The next morning I got up and went into the bathroom to find a Valentines card on the the toilet seat with a lump inside. That lump turned out to be a pregnancy test and it was positive. So that’s my little story of how Jon Bon Jovi learned that I was gonna be a Dad before I did.

Join us tonight at 6:20 for live Bon Jovi!
