The legend of Beatle Bob

This weekend, music fans in St. Louis will have a variety of concert options to choose from: Steve Wynn and the Miracle Three are playing at Off Broadway. The Alkaline Trio will rock the Pageant. Or, if punk rock's not your thing, you could check out the Rhythm Kings at Beale on Broadway. But, admit it, how many of you just don't make it out to concerts as much as you used to, or as much as you'd like to?

Well, the guy you're about to meet refuses to let anything keep him from the dance floor. Bob Matonis has been out to a concert every night for the last 11 years. KWMU's Adam Allington has the story of the man they call "Beatle Bob."
