"The situation with Michael Brown. Glad to have you with me so because we were kind of somewhere near the one year anniversary of the lock downs and 15 days to slow the spread, and all of that malarkey as President Biden would refer to it. I thought we could spend a little time this evening. Just kind of doing a retrospective of where we are how we've gotten here and kind of what it means And I'm gonna use is my jumping off point. Dr Scott Atlas. Now, you may Recognize that name. He was a member of the White House Cruella Virus task force that he that President Trump brought in after Trump became a little frustrated as I think a lot of this world with Dr Fauci and Dr Berks and they're on again, off again. Recommendations that we do this we do that we don't do this. We don't do that. Because he is He is. He has penned a piece over it. Stanford, where he's a fellow at the Hoover Institution, about kind of a Where are we and a couple of the points that he makes? I think you're worth You like it least considering you may agree. You may disagree, but I want you to consider them. The first thing, he says, is that he is shocked at the enormous power of the government. To unilaterally decree to simply close businesses and schools by edict, restrict personal movement, mandate behavior and eliminate our most basic freedoms without any end. And very little accountability. Let's do a little constitutional law for a moment. Because under our system federalism The federal government doesn't really have a lot of power. When it comes to things like this. I'll give you an example from Hurricane Katrina during Katrina, even though things were going pretty well, and it was actually were going very well. And Alabama, Mississippi and the Florida Panhandle, the focus of where everything was falling apart was in was in New Orleans in Louisiana. And because the mayor and the governor or ultimately responsible for what happens in those states, the federal government is have any rope the federal government's role If you've ever watched any sort of disaster unfold, the federal government's role is to simply assist state and local governments. Well, even in a pandemic like this, there's not a lot of authority that the feds have. If you stop and think about it, and I know that everybody remembers Mike Pence talking about 15 days to flatten the curve. Well, that was a request. He was asking us to stay home to not go shopping, too, You know, avoid contact with other people because they don't really have the authority to do that. That authority resides in the states. And that's because under our system of federalism, the states really have most of the power. That's why I always thought the best job in government was to be a governor because the governor can effect a state much more than, say, the federal government. And and Certainly we know that statement we know that local governments and county governments Our subsidiaries of state governments, so government is really have a lot of power. That's why in any disaster, I always immediately went to the governor to find out. Okay, what's working What's not working? What can I help you with? What can we do for you? Because we were there just to assist that governor who was always in charge of a state. Except in New Orleans and in New Orleans. I tried to get it actually got President Bush to agree to this to waive Posse comin, Thomas To invoke the Insurrection Act, which would allow the federal government to come in and effectively takeover estate. In this case, Louisiana Those were old civil war statues. That pretty much preserved state rights and on Lee under exigent circumstances can a in the federal government come in, and it requires the president to declare an emergency that national security is a stake and that the local state local governments would just Absolutely incapable of handling the emergency themselves. President Bush agreed to that. But Governor Blanco, who was the governor of Louisiana, the time balked at that request, and for President Bush backed off and we never. We never ended up invoking the insurrection Act. We just continued to plot along, trying to get Governor Blanco and Mayor Nagin to to try to do the best that they could I say all of that, because if you want to direct your ire at the lockdowns mask mandates all of that stuff. The only authority of president has with, say a lockdown or a mask mandate is on federal property. So you're military base or federal courthouse where he can order that in the federal courthouse. You must, you know, stay 16 apart and you have to have a mask on and and perhaps even closed down the federal courthouse for a while. The state has no role in that whatsoever. So if you're upset about lockdowns and mask mandates and you know, social distancing and everything else look to the governor's because it is the governor's Hmm. Just decided under the emergency powers that are granted to them. My state legislatures. To impose these lockdowns, and what Dr Alice is pointing out is that he shocked at not just the enormous power that governors have in an emergency situation. But how all of us just fall in line and we never questioned it. And we allow it to continue. That part is what bothers me the most. I think that, for example, in Colorado, in fact, I was encouraged every legislature in all 50 states to re examine the emergency powers that they grant to the executive branch in case of an emergency. Because if you notice in Colorado, it's never ending. Jared Polish, just at the end of a 30 Day period just extends his own emergency powers for another 30 days. And the way things have been going for the past year. I don't see any end in sight. Yeah, he'll tell you the end inside and he'll tell you if we just keep doing x Y Z that eventually he will allow us which I just find it offensive. He will allow us to go back to a normal life. The car rental General Assembly needs to re evaluate the emergency powers to thank Grant the executive and I would say this whether it was Jared Pulis's governor. Bill rigorous Governor Bill Owens is governor. I don't care who the governor is. For governor to be able to take those emergency powers and just continually extend them. 30 Days. 30 days, 30 Days, 90 days. Whatever he wants to do, I think is blatantly unconstitutional. And the only way to fix that, But you have two ways to fix it. But we don't have a gubernatorial election coming up and that is to remove that governor. Through an election or for the Legislature. In this case, the Colorado General Assembly to rein in those powers. Now if you watch in New York because of all the controversy that Andrew Cuomo is facing his governor of New York sexual harassment charges covering up the death nursing homes, the New York General Assembly Which is a Democrat controlled is raining in his powers so it can be done and Democrats have been known to do it. We need to do it in Colorado because we can't have an executive that just every 30 days just says to the population of the state. I'm going to keep you hunker down. I think the other thing that we have to re evaluate as citizens. Is how much of this we just put up with how much do we and this is what Dr Atlas is pointing out that he shocked at the ability of people or not the ability of people but the willingness of people to just without question. Except these edicts. And I would question the sanity of people that do it, too. Does no one think for themselves anymore. I think you should. If the situation with Michael Brantly K away news radio, let's see whether or not the traffic is thinking for itself tonight with Aaron Copland, and I'll be.

"The water there. It's a story about a battle against the authorities. Thought by a stubborn, gifted professional. Bring the story home talk about stubborn, gifted professionals. These historical fact based stories about descent and difference of various kinds coincide with the death of the writer Walter Bernstein at 101. After a lifetime of writing magazine pieces, tele plays and screenplays, teaching, writing and surviving the anti Communist blacklist and the 19 fifties. Bernstein was a bit of living history, and he knew it. It's notable that when his death was announced a couple of weeks ago, so many TV and print interviews popped up all over the Internet. That's not because Bernstein was greedy for publicity, but because he saw this as a mission of his to be interviewed to be the living history to talk about it to tell the story. As he told it to me in 1999, starting with the moment his name appeared in the booklet, Red channels along with about 150, others. You found yourself in Red Channel anathema medical list. Remember, I came right after Leonard Bernstein was a listing of your so called communist activities or Communist front activities. Also on the list. Dorothy Parker, Arthur Miller, Pete Seeger, Aaron Copland, all automatically unhygienic ble in film or TV, and there were about eight listings for me is I remember something like that? All true. They were Things like supporting the Spanish loyalists in Spain, sporting Russian war relief. Writing for the new Masses of communist publication. Finding these memberships and associations, he said, hadn't required much sleuthing on the part of Roy Brewer, who had been appointed to a special committee to clean up the ranks of the entertainment world. Activities of Bernstein and the others were all a matter of public record that the committee noted the names and made their own record. Sometimes the things, Bernstein said. About all this in 1999 might have been said yesterday At first, I know I thought that these people running the House committee on UN American activities were Just a bunch of He gets and Racists and part of what we considered a lunatic fringe. And it took a while to sink in that this lunatic fringe was in many respects running the country host blacklist, Bernstein and his friend and fellow blacklist e director Martin Red managed to get a movie made out of this bit of seemingly ancient history. It all came together in 1976 when they got the idea to do it as a dark comedy about a free spirited bartender who fronted.

The ballet rodeo takes place on a ranch. The cowboys are getting together at the end of a long work week to have a good time and show off what they can do so aaron copland called the opening movement or section of rodeo buck aroo holiday.

She dresses like cowboy and tries to show them how good she is at all the rodeo activities but when the cowgirl gets thrown from a horse the cowboys and the city girls who've shown up dressed just for the dance that evening all laugh at her. The next part of rodeo is called corral nocturne a nocturnal. The animal is one. That's active at night. Nocturnal is a piece of music that has to do with nighttime in this section of the ballet.

"Hello welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi Lewin American composer. Aaron Copland was born in Nineteen hundred in New York City. Both of his parents came from Russia when they moved to America Erica their name changed from Kaplan to Copland Vivian Perlas teaches at Yale University. She helped Aaron Copeland right to autobiographies autobiographies books about his life. He had grown up over his family store in Brooklyn New York. Every once in awhile young Aaron would go oh and take over the cash register when they were short of help in the store. Aaron Copeland had four older brothers and sisters. They all got piano. Lessons isn't but Vivian Perla says nobody had any talent whatsoever when it came to young Aaron they were not much inclined to give him lessons so he learned whatever he could from his older sister. When Aaron turned out to be very musical his parents finally let him have. Have lessons to but it never occurred to them that he might become a composer. They didn't know the word composer. They didn't have any idea about what a composer does or anything about writing music so when he started to write his first short pieces. He kept it to himself herself because he knew that nobody would understand what he was doing. Vivian Perlas says Aaron Copeland also tried to hide his music from other kids in those days young people who were involved with music or a little unusual and he would get teased on the way to school carrying his music books and on the way to the library when Aaron Copeland was a teenager he went to study in France with a woman named Nadia boulanger say she was a composer and organist and conductor in in fact she was the first woman to conduct the New York Philharmonic and the Boston symphony but most of all Mulaj was a teacher for nearly sixty years. People came came from all over the world to work with her. She was very tough but she had a way of putting her finger on exactly what people's special talents were <music>. Nadia Boulanger was very good at helping her students find their own style especially their own national style back then no one had really figured out what American classical music should sound like Vivian Perlas says Aaron. Copeland didn't succeed right away what he did it. I was to use jazz in his music and that was very shocking thing to do to have jazz in symphonic music and for those pieces to be played for regular concert audiences eventually eventually. Aaron Copeland found his American sound when he was a little bit older he used American folk songs in his music and that also it was an unusual thing to do Aaron. Copeland also used folk music from Latin America in his. There's there's another very American kind of music Aaron. Copeland wrote film scores Background Music for movies. The most popular piece Aaron Copeland Ever wrote is is one that sounds completely American without using any folk music his fanfare for the common man <music> that was Aaron copland conducting his own music. He had quite a career as a conductor to Aaron. copland composed two ballets set set in the wild west. I'll tell you about them next time on classics for kids. I'm Naomi Lewin. Please join me then.

I celebrate myself and seeing myself, and whatever I assume you've shallow soup for every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you. How did you tell him that?

I spoke about information unverified. They're related to allegations that he was with prostitutes in a hotel in Moscow, and that the Russians had videotaped it. I didn't go into the rest of it. I thought that was noticed enough. I didn't mention the salacious detail of of the two prostes getting up on the bed that the Obamas stayed in because it was the presidential suite on, and you know, engage. He didn't mention that.

It's it would have been one thing if you just posted so many questions because. When could expect that that's fine. But the fact that he put that picture in. I've said a longtime will about Komi that before any of this Russia gate came out that he just seemed to love being on television. He just had this kind of like Sammy Davis junior thing when he was talking about issues, and hey, this is fun. And he just cannot help himself from being the center of tips put that pick.

"But she brought about going down into Pomme from Valda Masa, which is the lovely monastery in which Chopin and son were living throughout this winter to try and affect the release of the play piano. That was a terrible rainstorm and the trip that should've taken just a few hours ended up taking seven hours. But when she came back, she saw Chopin at the bows, piano, playing a piece that she'd never heard before. And it was the raindrop. And that's where she points out to him that the the repeated note, it was xactly replicating, the rhythm of the rain hitting the tiles in the in the monastery, which is where the the piece code its nickname from. But yes, she wrote about this in some detail. I just love that. When you travel you. Visit the homes and the places where great musicians were inspired to write their music, and whether it's on a fjord with Edvard Grieg are wondering through Vienna with Beethoven are waking up in Salzburg with Mozart you're saying that a composer like Chopin would be out in nature collecting, ideas working this out, and then he'd go home, and like we would go to a desk to write. He would go to his Pagnotta. Right. And he was sitting there frustrated because he was dealing with this. Makeshift temporary, piano. Waiting for the good one to come in on that panel. He wrote a collection of prelude that really changed music, piano history and a lot of ways. Well, they really did let's deal with the products themselves, which since Bach who died almost one hundred years before shop on was in Melaka no-one really was rotting preludes, and if they were they'll very primitive things, and here's Chopin kind of looked back to buck. But also looked forward to the works of shimmer. Ski and Dubose e in the twentieth century. So they're very unusual pieces in themselves. And then as you say, he would have these ideas, and these inspirations when he was walking his very internal, man. He's life was lived very very much inside. He's head and then would come and work away at the piano. And then Sandra also describes how this initial burst of inspiration would then take him days and days often weeks where he wrestled to try and get back the original inspiration and have it into shape on paper in the pieces that we know now this is so new to me to think that the actual finished product would have been shaped to a certain degree not by the inspiration of the artist. But by a combination of what the artists are the composer was inspired to write and the personality of the piano. He's working on. I know that if I came home and wasn't spared to right in the head of Stein way, might be more brilliant piece in if I had a Berge Darfur. It might be a more slinky are romantic piece. So we can see that in me orca. We can see that in Chopin is that something. That we can learn in apply to appreciating music beyond Chopin. It really depends. For instance, people like Benjamin Britten another composer. I've written very much about did the same walks shop, and did, you know still enjoyed walking along the shingle beach in albrough in Suffolk in the UK. But he actually would shape all the works in his head. And then would actually not go back to his piano. He would go to disk, and the the shape is the piece was already completely formed in east head, and he'd sit down then and rice, and it was all just kind of in his head. And there are lovely stories about him being in America, actually and Aaron Copland so him orchestrator at the very complex orchestral piece of his while holding a conversation with those around him because it was all just so automatic to him..

We're gonna have a brief word with our Rockstars are in on an Erin, we just we put that together yesterday and just so committed and so connected. Just love playing that with you and putting it together such we I don't know whether you could notice, but we split a lot of queuing. You know, there's most times when you have a situation like this everybody just the piano has the score there kind of traffic cop. But in this it was much easier. There it was quite obvious. You know, who had something at least similar to a strong beat. And so he would split split the responsibilities. Are there was a really loud squeak from the clarinet as we played anything. You wanna say about that? Well, that's particularly interesting usually on clarinet, you're told not to squeak so to have the composer deliberately right in over blow like squeak is actually kind of fun to see. And that's the kind of thing you see usually new music is extended techniques that there is also some quarter tones so something that Christopher could not play on the piano because it doesn't fit in there. But I'm capable of doing it. So that's a lot of fun in the squeak. It was loud. But it was there. I promise. Great great. Aaron this piece is very tough to play Conrad. Once you know that he hopes you don't hate him for that. What was was there? Anything particularly difficult for you. In terms of extended techniques, just learning the peace one of the harder things about this piece that he mentioned in the talk is that there are down Beat's, but lots of the time, we'll have different rhythms. So we won't be able to exactly here where the Dow meat is was really difficult and our three our hersal when up taking apart the peace into twenty seven sections our each five to six years long. And then we put it together all at the end. So that's how he broke it apart. And we just kind micromanaged each thing and put it all together, we had a sort of democratic sort of way of doing it to make sure that everybody was on point, you know, Arianna would conduct or Countess through one section than Aaron would Countess. And you know, they'd be be somehow hours on a five minute piece actually by worked really worked around received some very very happy news last week. I did actually I just graduated from these in school.

"It was just really fun to watch and very, very meaningful Oscar contender. You know, I think it could be. I mean, I think that the tonal balance, I don't know if Travis teen it yet in terms of the, there's this tricky tonal balance to it that I think, you know, some people might think it succeed better than others, but but it's for sure. I think one of his finest in recent years are sure are totally agree. I actually think it's it's the first time in a while, but like spike was released like passionate about. Film he was making. You know you talk about how unique the story as Ron stallworth African American who goes undercover in a clue cooks, clan sounds ridiculous, but it's totally true story. And I think people would be surprised by the by the tone of the film. It is sort of like a comedy kind of a buddy comedy with John Washington. Adam driver kind of has a blaxploitation feel to it. I think that's what spikes polling for. And I don't know if people will be prepared for that. And I do think sometimes it kind of blunts the impact of what he's trying to say. But he only things that spike is really good at is using footage and you know, like film film footage and current video to make a statement any kind of book ins film with with footage, you know, get a gone with the wind and the beginning in the emit get from Charlottesville, vise matter. And these scenes are real. Really impactful spike is great at that. I, I really did enjoy this a lot, and I think that I think spikes. Got, I think I agree with you that this is spike specimen long time. He was an early adapter of digital film-making, wasn't he. As I'm, that's a good question. I guess I hadn't thought of that calling early on. He made a film with the digital camera was okay. And also he's been passed over are disappointed by award. Most of his career? Yeah. He didn't go to Ken for a long time after the whole Duda right thing. Well, yeah, I mean, to lose to lose to driving miss daisy for that particular with this. Like really, and I don't think history's been kind to that particular decision, but but like practice that I think the thing that thrills me the most about his filmmaking is this talent that he has for these overtures beginnings and ending. I mean, he just knows how to work a straight. It's about image and music and feeling he did it with. He got game that just that there's an opening sequence that had that kind of Aaron Copland score, but that it says he can get you into his stories like no other and and the beginning and ending of this movie are just among his spineless filmmaking period. I mean, they're worth. It's worth it just to see these pieces of filmmaking. Sounds like it's the movie of the week the the currency this week. I think it's, yeah, I agree with and I think this is going to be the one that people are going to be talking about. And do you think this movie has the kind of potential as something like get out last year? The kind of people because it is it does. It is doing. Race in a in a unique kind of way to same way get out does do you think is the kind of movie that people will be buzzing about and it it might have the same kind of long lasting impact? You know? I do. I mean, I think that, like you said, it does have this kind of buddy. It's a very acceptable in terms of the kind of the buddy comedy aspects of it, and it's just really entertaining. And so I think that the the sheer entertainment value of it like with get out, you know, I mean, it was just it was just a fun movie to watch, and this is a fun movie to watch. So. Yeah, I mean, I hope it really doesn't. Of course, it's being released almost to the day year after Charlottesville and the way that he ends with the is it's just it's just so moving. I mean, it it's really galvanizing. And so, yeah, you know, I would. I would love to see that happen and we should mention a Jordan. Peele director of get out is actually a producer on the film as well. So so there's there's that connection to, so it's a wonderful kind of hand over its..

"Tone for question from Jacob from Liverpool who says, I am well into a second contract with a well known entertainment cruise line company. We are currently charting our way around the Alaskan fjords. Beautiful. I would like to go somewhere. I let's go don't. If I'd like to go on a cruise ship though as such, like, obviously, you have to do about trip to see the fjords identified three weeks at sees them. I think you can do a week. Let's do a week to what more can I say, says Jacob. The air is so fresh. The landscape views are breathtaking. I bet with the Aaron Copland and Thomas Newman themes. They pump around guest areas. It's an ideal situation for all the senses. Okay. I didn't know. I guess it makes sense that particularly sort of big corporate owned cruise lines would do that just to really manipulate every part of the experience on board probably to cover up some engine noise and air conditioning noise. I suppose the real concern would be if they played, my heart will go on. That's when you. Anyway, check him continues. I am. The ships only onboard calls. Matola gist is that Jacob takes care of the performance wigs and makeup. Okay. So he's a costume technician basically calls Matala gist on listeners of treaty. Fascinating jobs only mornings include he says, washing scenting, aggressing out, and then maintaining the wigs for the shows characters as well as dressing are numerous shows and characters in of costumes in the evening, and then helping with the laundry at the end of the seemingly never ending day that must suck like midnight and you've got a load of sweaty performance close to deal with. Yes and no. I mean, I've actually, I've just interviewed someone funnily enough is gonna come out a couple of weeks time on the modern man. I just interviewed a guy. Could Andy actually, he listens to this. So, hey, Andy, who for a period worked for Disney cruises. So I'm gonna put an episode cruising with Mickey every just did it for the title, and he talks about how when you're on a ship, even though it seems ridiculous that you're working that many hours a day is your whole life.
