How many people out there have maintained a friendship for over 50 years? Pops and Uncle Frank (Frankie “Cheech” Farina) met on board the USS Independence during the Vietnam War becoming brothers from other mothers and adopted sons into each others families.

We converse about movies, growing up in Brooklyn, the Navy, their bucket list and the question “pops up” as to whether or not Uncle Frank is taking Viagra.

Ben Sturgell’s Christmas song “1983” opens and closes the show.
