#252 Today’s Boondoggle with Retired NYPD Officer, Tom Kelly


In this episode Bill talks with Retired New York City Police Officer, Thomas “TK” Kelly. We talk about finding a dead body at a young age being early inspiration to become a cop, the chaos of working wall street, the psychological tests involved in becoming a cop, catering on the set of The Warriors movie, telling Flavor Flav what time it is, and all the things Mayor Giuliani did to clean up NYC. We also talk about working on the force before, during, and after that fateful day of September 11th 2001. Ironically meeting each other on the 20 year anniversary of 9-11 at a Danny Wimmer Festival, how Mayor Bloomberg treated him and his fellow officers during the 10 year anniversary, some of the wildest experiences he had as a NYC police officer, dealing with Y2K and 9-11, being the first cop on the scene for the death of Eric Clapton’s son, retirement and enjoying live music, the many musical charities that have helped support his habit, plus so much more.
