Today I was at Royal Oak High School and it got me thinking about how much I miss Dondero. The day this placed closed was a seriously awful day. I ended up leaving the district and going to a private school because I knew Royal Oak High School would suck. Royal Oak destroyed this awesome school……Dondero will forever hold a special place in my heart.
I’m guessing Freaks and Geeks creator Paul Feig has this entire collection stored away in his 80’s treasure box. I’ve been merely listening to these incredible productions until I just stumbled upon actual video today! You can’t write this stuff folks.
Paul Allen, the guidance counselor in F&G, may have been based off this treasured drama director arranging a Beach Boys medley!
Ever wonder what inspired the “I’m with the band” episode?
