Mr. Movie, RIP

I would like to mark the passing of Steve "Mr. Movie" Friedman on 9/21 at age 62 from kidney failure.

Friedman was the host for my only non-prank phone call to a radio station, circa 1986 or so. I called his movie-themed radio show ostensibly to talk about Doctor Who (for some reason) - and then babbled like a nervous Asperger's patient for about 15-20 minutes about James Bond. He was very polite to me. A lesser host would have bailed (with good reason) within the first minute.
