The inaugural Minnesota Fan Fest brought a cornucopia of fandoms to Saint Paul's Rivercentre, giving fans unique one-on-one opportunities to meet their favorite heroes and artists. 

One of the biggest stars at Fan Fest was beloved Power Rangers alumni Jason David Frank. Appearing in over 225 episodes as "Tommy Oliver," the original Green Ranger who later transitioned into the White Ranger and several other colors throughout the franchise's many incarnations, Frank spoke with Go 95.3's own Chaz Kangas about a quarter-century of "Morphin Time," the series' recent big-screen reboot and his new role as "Bloodshot" in the forthcoming series based on Valiant Comics' Ninjak.
