That is unless it’s 98.9 The Rock radio superstar Johnny Dare‘s Birthday Bash. Yes sir, just when you think, they’re out of ideas at the Rock…
Hell NO. Not even close.
Johnny Dare and program director Bob Edwards have pulled off another first. Johnny’s favorite bar – - The Full Throttle Saloon – is 850 miles away in Sturgis South Dakota. So they are bringing the bar and all its toys, girls, bands, stripper poles, motorcycles, and vendors to Richard R. Berkley Riverfront Park August 24-26. Johnny’s birthday is August 27th. Even the Wall of Death will be present.
Dare is the voice of the TV show FULL THROTTLE on truTV which is in its third season. The event will be taped for a program on this year’s season ending show.
Johnny is at this very moment in Sturgis for the Bike event that draws over one million people for the week.
And the Full Throttle bar is ONLY open for those two weeks. Imagine the income? It’s insane.
Dare is often on the show as himself, interviewing guests, and letting viewers know whats up at the bar. It’s been a second job for him these past three years. His radio show has been number one in KC for several years. And with charity events, like Bikers For Babies, Johnny has become a household name here.
It’s shows like this that keep the Rock number one in Kansas City.
