Celebrities from all fields of entertainment "invaded" Shreveport this past weekend for Townsquare Media's Geek'd Con convention. Stars from movies, television, video games, not to mention thousands and thousands of fans filled downtown's Convention Center for the fourth annual festival.

101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright, Erin McCarty and Matt Parker talk about their GEEK'd Con weekend and the celebrities they met - and became friends with. Erin, spent time with "Walking Dead" actor (and Baton Rouge native) Pruitt Taylor Vince and Robert with "Stargate SG-1 and voice actor Christopher Judge. But neither of the mornings host's stories could hold a candle to producer Matt Parker's three days with WWE Hall of Fame wrestler Mick Foley.

Matt described Foley, a major star in the wrestling world and best known for his character Mankind, as "a man who changed my life." And, after a little ribbing from Robert and Erin, beautifully explains how the wrestler gave him the courage to stand up to school bullying when he was a little boy.

Hear Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty weekday mornings from 6 til 9 on 101.7 / 710 KEEL, or by downloading the free KEEL app, presented by Office Furniture Source.
