Jim Wood of the band Loaded Poets and the film The Front Man experiences a Make a Wish Foundation  moment when Graham Maby  of the Joe Jackson Band (who also makes a cameo appearance in The Front Man) duets with him on one of the seminal pop masterpieces of the New Wave era.

 
 
Quite a journey for Jim, who at 16 watched in awe as Graham performed at New Jersey's Six Flags Great Adventure.
