Are you ready for a little time travel?

The year is 1958, and the much-adored rock and roll idol - Conrad Birdie - has been drafted into the US Army. His songwriter and agent, Albert Peterson, along with Albert's secretary and girlfriend Rose Alvarez have created a brilliant plan for a huge send off. They're going to have Conrad sing his latest song "One Last Kiss" on the Ed Sullivan show, AND actually give one last kiss to Kim MacAfee, President of the Conrad Birdie Fan Club in Sweet Apple, Ohio. Hopefully, this will ensure a huge hit for Conrad, keep the public's adoration for the new G.I. and ultimately keep Almaelou records from going under.
