The radio show Danny is referring to is The Danny Bonaduce & Sarah Morning Show on KZOK, a Seattle radio station. He has been hosting the show since 2011. Danny is best known for being a child star in the 1970s, on the popular show The Partridge Family. Unfortunately, he suffered from substance abuse problems years later.

When he was struggling with addiction, his former co-star David Cassidy helped him get sober. He said he asked him to come on tour with him under the circumstances of “no drugs, no alcohol, no smoking, and no women.”
