Way back in episode 64 Chanty told Lynx all about Rita Rae Roxx and her incredibly fun memoir Once Upon a Rock Star: Backstage Passes in the Heavy Metal Eighties – Big Hair, Bad Boys (and One Bad Girl). This time around we couldn't have been more excited to chat with Rockin' Rita herself!
A friend wrote in Rita’s 1982 high school yearbook: “I hope that someday you will meet your true David Lee Roth … and become a rock and roll queen.” Well, she DID and she IS. Rita's extensive scrapbooks of backstage passes and personal photos are a record of a lifestyle that rock fans only dream about.
After leaving Omaha and moving to LA, Rita pursued heavy metal bands throughout the 1980s and well into the 90s. She eventually traded rock stars for movie stars and did a stint in a stand-up comedy. After leaving LA with more memories than any single person could ever experience, Rita returned to her hometown and is a hard-working mom who is active in her church. RIta still goes to shows and supports bands in her community, and you can hear all about it in today's show!
