ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Known as Daddy-O to his on-line MSTie pals, STEPHEN F. FINLEY has been a fan of MST3000 since its very first season...no surprise as he was already a fan of old movies, bad movies, rubber monster suits, Hercules, clever writing, wacky impressions, non-sequiturs and, most importantly, hand puppets.
If you have any comments, corrections or additional material for DADDY-O's DRIVE-IN DIRT, or think that Steve would be a great asset to your company (hint, hint), email Stephen at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your contributions will be greatly appreciated. While exploring this monster, please be patient and keep in mind that this is an eternal work in progress.
