Follow our suggestions and you’ll be well on your way to a positive “May the Fourth”.

Nigel of WIBCs popular radio show Hammer and Nigel, tells us his thoughts on the infamous Star Wars series, “I’ve always been team dark side. I’ve always been more of a Darth Vader-Empire kind of guy.” Hammer chimed in as well saying “It’s more of a generational thing. I’m watching Star Wars again now with MY eleven-year-old son. In fact, I bought the entire DVD collection when he was born.” Whether you decide to watch the movies or stream the television shows, we hope you are able to celebrate and may the fourth be with you!
