Listen: Roy Clark, Glen Campbell, Johnny Cash discussed on Red Eye Radio
"Gary mcnamara. I'm Eric Harley as we move into a Friday. Hey kids. It's the bonus show, Gary, how are you? I'm doing really really good. It's the Friday show. Said Friday Friday Friday, Friday, Friday, we're finally here coming up on the show. The accosted decision is delayed. I wonder why the league maybe the judge giving them a chance to think about it there at the Justice department. You know, we talked about it yesterday about either the incompetence with a conspiracy theory of the judges I had somebody writing say, we'll no. But the attorneys are attempting to do is protect the intern. Nah. Nah doesn't make. What do you mean? Protect the intern. I actually saw that being tossed around on social media during the day on Thursday. That in order to bring this up that they could call the the intern as a witness and at the intern has begged them to keep her out of it. Then they're doing this to protect. They would want to protect her and not involve her by going in different directions. It doesn't make sense because in their defense. They talked about the fact that big as as we'd mentioned right at the last part of yesterday, which I said, this is the the pad that the judge could rule for the White House. And due to the fact that the White House took out the most important part of the altercation, which is not to defend the second amendment. But you don't need to get to that place. But talk about the altercation that actually happened by bringing in the first part of it you've brought her in and they talked about the fact that he would refuse to give up the microphone, and so you've brought her in at that point. Well, I guess that's the question. Do they feel like they've brought her in? If it's the if it's just another reporter refusing to yield to the next reorder, right? But where did that come up from where where did that? That's just that's just a hypothesis or tried to protect her. Yeah. I think that's all you got right now because they don't know. Nobody knows nobody has said that. And I don't see that happening. I don't think that's the I don't believe that's the case at all. Well, because here's what they failed at doing the lawyers for the Justice department and defending the the actions of the White House here what they failed to do is go the actual full measure. And I think this is what judge Kelley was talking about or alluding to or trying to get to a point too. And that is another reporters shouting something or refusing to guild to the next reporter is not a unique situation. What makes a very unique situation in terms of behavior, and it is a definitive crossing of the line, which would have been your huge massive weight. Was when he pushed her arm away and essentially used in order to keep her from getting that, Mike, right? And and that's what's unique to this situation. And they didn't go there. That's it's still boggles my mind, maybe maybe judge Kelley just needed till Friday morning to stop shaking his head. It's just bizarre. We'll see we'll see where that goes. Coming up. Also Broward County misses the machine recount deadline by two minutes. Yeah. Oh, and Scott picked up seven hundred and seven hundred plus votes. So now, it has to go to a recount they missed it by two minutes with all the time. They missed it by two minutes. Anybody by that? Right. Clark Adine yesterday. That was yeah. That was really sad. You know, growing up in my family every Saturday. Here's here's what it was. I mean, at least every other Saturday dad had steaks or something on the grill, but we would have family dinner around the TV that one night not at the table. We were able to actually take our place out into the living room and watch you know, that righty show the hawk and if you just if you look at the musicianship on that show. It's just it's just incredible. But ROY Clark there's the clip from when he was on the odd couple original. Yes. Yes. Unbelievable. As the guitarist. I mean, I think of all of my guitar heroes. One that's real close to home. In fact, we're right now just a few miles as the crow flies from where he grew up Stevie Ray Vaughan. But if you look at the way that ROY Clark picked unbelievable. It was a lot like Stevie Ray in that. They I mean this glee they were putting everything in to they're playing you could see the look on their face the way that they picked the way that that they really I guess executed a song. That kind of passion, you know, can only come naturally you. You don't learn that kind of passion that talent is something. I also believe is is it very natural. And it's in its purest form I posted on social media yesterday. The when he was on Johnny cash and just went nuts. You know? He just went nuts and the Qatar. But the thing was when he was really really going at it. And you see his fingers flying all over the place the camera split and went between the fingers in his face. And the look on his face was absolute intense enjoyment. Yeah. You can tell the tent city that he was just like, whoa. But there was a part of it of the look on his face. Which was like, I can't believe my fingers are doing this. Yeah. My thing with ROY Clark is actually he haw. Tainted me. I I anything that came from hee-haw. You know, when I was growing up I was in teenagers like climate he other things so hokey it actually tainted me from not understanding the talent of the musicians on their show. Just because it was so hokey and ROY Clark in particular. It was a couple of years after abso-, and I started seeing, you know, more videos of him and went oh my gosh. This guy's just unbelievable. And then I realized that okay? That was just a comedy show that he that he did which by the way. Now, I find it ever comes up. I find it. Larry's because it's so silly and its nature if you look at the purpose, and I have no idea I would have to talk to the creators of it and the writers behind it. It really was to facilitate the music in a different way. I mean, if you think about, you know, many Pearl being on there. She was a regular, but the. How silly silly jokes? It really came down to the fact that they were so stupid. They were funny that the jokes were so, and this is this was kind of in line with I think Carol Burnett and everything else it was a different. Approach because it involves music. But it was I think it was one of those comedy approaches that really was about. Finding a way to present country music every week. And and I guess keep it keep it fresh and keep it fun. It was to me. I didn't really laugh at it. As a kid. I didn't unlike you I didn't really laugh at until I got much older started watching some of the shows are parts of the shows back on on on YouTube. But when you look at those performances, and this is where you start seeing you know, when you see ROY Clark aside from that TV show. I mean you look at his performance. And he he's up there. As a as I said yesterday, he is up there with the absolute best that ever exists. There's good I because a good he what I look at people who have mastered their instrument. And there are a number of them. I mean, I I don't know how many count in terms of guitars, but he is he's in that list. Yes. I don't care if it's Joe Satriano, Steve Vai, inveigh moms steam, Eddie van Halen, all of these that mastered it in rock and let me add another one because he died recently. And I don't think a lot of people have a really really appreciate what he can do Glen Campbell Glen Campbell's unbelievable in Campbell's skills were way in his family. Even said in his last years, one of the things that still came naturally never left him until the very end. Was this plane? I bought an album where he did covers of his own. He redid his his own songs, and he did he did a foo fighters cover. Yes. And I bought that album, and he was seventy three when he recorded that album. Didn't miss a beat. He did Wichita lineman with stone. Temple pilots. It's just a video of him sitting in a studio doing that song. And it did it did not lose anything. In fact, it was better than it had ever been. And that was kind of when you know, someone has mastered their music their their songs their skills when it gets better when every time it gets better. I mean Clapton or any of them that you can put up, you know, in terms of masters, ROY Clark. Glen campbell. These guys were right up there. And they were there by the way for a long while and I think about how long in my life, and it's probably by the time. I realized that they were really good. I was into my thirties. But I think about how we were raised on music. We've talked about this before we were raised on top forty radio, which is different than today where everything everything is calm compartmentalized. You know, there's this format this format this format. And I remember, you know, for example in the nineties when you would have the grunge people. The only good music is grunge only. Good music is as younger music is metal. And we were we were blessed to understand that that because of top forty music because you heard everything you heard all forms of of news acuity of carpenters, and then the who and then free, and then then the Stirland vocal band. Alabama. Over Alabama right Alabama on earth. John denver. A you know, a Johnny Johnny cash. Then strawberry alarm clock. Still freaks me out that the league cars from strawberry. Alarm clock clock was one of the league of terrorists have Leonard Skinner. That's always blown me away. But it made me we were able to appreciate. And this is what I fear that a lot of young people today because they've been so focused on formats of, you know, this is the culture. This is what I'm into don't get to appreciate and are able to understand when we compare a ROY Clark to an Eddie van Halen. Right. And they go what are you talking about? There's no way way. Right. There's there's there's an, and that's I mean, you look at each of their contributions, you mentioned Johnny cash when he did nine inch nails hurt. I thought to myself dear Trent wrestler. Johnny cash owns this song from Huron. It's no longer yours. That's and if you went to Trent. He said that to him a probably agree. His response would have said. Yeah. I don't know how you could depict. I heard hurt I from Johnny cabbie. Yeah. And then saw said won't residents of this. And I went and saw him do it in concert. Yeah. And the funny thing is if I would have seen residue at first I'm to send onto really great song. But I saw him do it after I saw Johnny cash, right and her Johnny cash. Do it. I went as okay. When I heard a seventy three year old blend Campbell do the foo fighters. I'm just thinking to myself this right here. This is the best of both worlds because you're hearing a master do something that by the way sounded very natural just sounded as if it was written for him. Or maybe that he wrote it even it was it was incredible. And and I think that's what that's where the true appreciation comes in. And I have in my music election. I have everything from gospel to bluegrass too, the heavy metal and everything in between. You know, it it you you break down the, you know, I was watching the documentary on Elvis and how he would go to these clubs when he was very very young. And he was one of the only white people in the clubs, but the influence they said on him. That was the core of his music until the day. He died I can say with Elvis, I was tainted on Elvis because of the movie all my aunts and uncles were into the movies. And I went these searches hokey, well, then the big. This year's was what got me was the one film, and you, and I've talked about this the one film that was taken when he just broke right? And he's on the back of that flatbed trailer. Right.."
