Governor Greg Abbott says the manager of power in the state came up way short. Cut repeatedly assured the state and the public. ERCOT was prepared. Those assurances turned out. To be false. He blamed power suppliers of all sources, but also said it was outrageous. That electric operator sent sky high utility bills to customers because demand soared. The state is Already investigating multiple electric providers about these spikes, But utility companies have said they're just following orders from utility regulators.

"Resignations atop board leaders of the embattled Texas power grid operator. Have taken the fact five board members of the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, known as ERCOT, resigned following outrage after more than four million customers lost electricity last week during a deadly winter storm.

The governor says the Texas Legislature will take the lessons learned from the last week to come up with the immediate solutions. To keep
Thousands In Texas Still Don't Have Power As Lawmakers Investigate ERCOT
"Last week's mass power failure continues, and so does the political fall out. Have been resignations from the body that oversees the grid and lawmakers open their investigations tomorrow. Joining us now is Dominic Anthony Walsh of Texas. Public Radio. Hi there. Hi. First. How's the recovery going? How are people doing? So the majority of the state does have power and water back. But there are still thousands of residents, especially in the Texas Hill country, for example, who don't have power and their electric provider isn't sure when the power will be back. So for thousands of people of this crisis has stretched on for more than a week. And you know bodies are still being found. Local officials are saying it will be weeks till we know the full number of people who died in this disaster, but it's already in the dozens and is expected to climb to well over 100. And these are people who couldn't power medical equipment people who froze to death in their homes or in their cars, as well as people without housing, who froze to death outdoors, experiencing the worst of the conditions. Wow. So in the face of that staggering death toll, the hearings begin tomorrow and the actions of ERCOT, the body that manages the Texas grid are likely to be front and center. What do you expect to come up? Is gonna be a lot. But one key question. Why wasn't the power grid ready? But ERCOT, which again is at the center of all this doesn't actually own the physical infrastructure that provides power. Rather Okay, just oversees the flow of electricity. Here's Peter Crampton, now former member of their cots board. He spoke at his final board meeting earlier today. Cutlets flying a 7 47. It had not one but two engines experience catastrophic failure. And flew the damage playing for 103 hours before safely landing in the Hudson. In my mind the men and women in their car control room here out. So in this analogy, those engines that blew up could be power generating units owned by public and private power companies, not ERCOT again. Haircuts rule was to do an emergency landing. That's the order of so called Syria's of controlled blackouts. So that and even worse crash when it happened like the entire grid going off line, which, according to Urquhart, could take a weeks or months to repair. So far, Kat is likely to argue that they were just doing the best they could with a bad situation. Are there other places Lawmakers might look to hold people accountable. Absolutely. First, there is the Public Utility Commission of Texas. It oversees our cod and has a three member board appointed by Governor Greg Abbott. Second, there's the railroad Commission, which actually oversees the natural gas sector, not railroads and the natural gas sector failed to provide enough power during this crisis. Those two agencies, the Public Utility Commission and the railroad Commission have regulatory power. ERCOT does not. And of course, there is the state Legislature itself, which actually makes the laws that these agencies are supposed to enforce. One proposal mandate that all plants whether as against cold weather, and there's a debate around that who pays for the weatherization taxpayers or the company's And finally, people are already resigning. Tell us about why So Peter, cramped in who we heard earlier, along with a few other board members resigned after taking heat that because they didn't live in the state now did them living out of the state caused these blackouts. No, but Governor Greg Abbott was quick to welcome The news. In the short term market officials will face hearing from the state Legislature tomorrow, and there will be tough questions for them. But again, Ultimately there are other bodies that hold most of the power is actually mandate changes after all of this.

Why Some Texas Residents Now Face Huge Electricity Bills
"Think for a moment about that. Famous survey suggesting that many people would struggle to pay an emergency expense of even a few hundred dollars now think about texas where some people suddenly have utility bills in the thousands of dollars. It's a side effect of last week's storm that overcame the power grid. People who managed to keep their power are now paying for it. Christopher connelly is with member station k. e. r. a. in and joins us. Now good morning. Hi steve what's an example of the kind of costs that people face right so well. I talked to shannon mars. She has one of those big bills. She lives in frisco which is a dallas suburb with her husband. Mike and three kids in january. They paid two hundred fifty seven bucks for electricity and as of saturday. The families electric bill for the month of february was ten thousand one hundred eighty dollars and seventy six cents during those real. Yeah during those really cold days last week. The marches were paying one or two thousand dollars a day for electricity shannon. Maher said it makes her sick to her stomach to think about it too awful and there's nothing you can do and i've been really stressed about it and ten thousand dollars is a ton of money. I guess you gotta explain the texas system here. Because i get a utility bill. I pay the utility bill. I don't even necessarily know what my costs four day is. How does this even happen right. So this is wonky but but bear with me here so. Texas has a deregulated market for electricity. It is designed so that when there's a shortage of electricity of the price will go up in power. Companies will have an incentive to generate more electricity that deregulated market also for the sale of unusual policies. Like the ones. The mars is have plans with variable rates for electricity and those are the customers who are ending up with these sky high bills. The mars family spent hours trying to switch to a different company last week to find one with a more traditional fixed rate plan and normally they would be able to do that but the storm made that impossible so they were just sitting there watching the charges on their credit. Cards rack up. Does this suggest that this deregulation doesn't work well. It works great when the weather's good but you know it appears that there weren't market incentives in this market system for power providers to make sure that they were prepared to weather a massive winter storm. There have been warnings about that for years. Actually and the system broke down almost exactly like this about a decade ago. You know the other issue that we're seeing is that. The deregulated system assumes that consumers will fend for themselves that they'll find electricity plan where they won't get hosed if a big storm rolls in cable weight from the consumer rights group public citizen says. That just doesn't really happen. In reality people have a lot of different things tugging at their attention and their bandwidth and so a lot of our economic decisions are actually made on autopilot and therefore all these theories like that. We will shop for the cheapest and best plan for ourselves. They don't play out state trying to help. Now yeah so. There will be hearings looking into the issue. This week governor greg. Abbott says no one should have to pay these exorbitant bills and yesterday the public utilities commission temporarily blocked companies from sending out bills or shutting off customers power for non-payment abbots also saying that the state will force power plants to weather is so they're prepared for the next storm. I got to say this. Level of government intervention feels anathema to the way republicans have governed this state for decades. But there is so much political pressure right now to make changes because even as people are just starting to repair burst pipes and get the water running again. Christopher colleague of kera. Thanks thank

Cold crawl Footage taken on the sat by didn't have much in the way of master elements for the film. And i i never really discussed it. Much with him It it. It was kind of sensitive subject and i didn't feel comfortable bringing it up by the i don't believe there ever was a finished version of the film. I know. certainly the those you'll know cut negative or assembled negative that may have been a work print and some assembled sections and jerry always had very high hopes for picking up the ball and finishing net project up until that whole spy magazine harry shearer story hidden and and all the negative press and that just let the air out of the balloon. He decided after that point he had to walk away from an in later interviews saying he was embarrassed to the word and it should never be seen. I'm not sure how much that he believed. I think he he really had a passion for the film. He put a lot of his own money into it. But there's no complete finish version to be seen Jesus little sections a little assembled work print sections so there you have it folks. The official answer on the day the clown cried. Here's a wildcard question. That i think ron can take a wack at because i find weird shit when i'm researching was bud. Abbot kidnapped as a teen and taken to norway. I think that's a publicity story. But he he actually did sign. Nobody did sign onto a steamer to to be a cabin boy on on a steamer and then they basically room in the hole and made him shovel coal so he got really kind of shanghai but not really because he received at volunteer to go on according this is according to his sister site. That was a popular story that they kidnapped him. And just through a mom. This both gilbert. How do you define popular. I since since we mentioned sinfield contributions as a writer to the series. I'd like to mention john grant as well. Some some john grant was the. Ron could probably address in greater detail but john grant was the burlesque veteran that they hired a put on you know on staff and he credited on almost every one of those movies they made because he remembered all of the burlesque routines verbatim and and found sometimes ingenious ways and sometimes not so with sort of a of integrating those routines into their movies and tv shows. Yeah process was they would write a screenplay that was basically the straight story and then handed it to john grant and then he would say okay. You know what this will work. This routine will work here. We'll put the lemon table here. We'll put the dice game here or whatever whatever would be and then it just have to find one sentence introduction to get it into the into the movie and if he knocks cars. He's kind of an unsung hero too. Because the film's didn't work on. But you can tell. Something's lacking he was also not only was he. You know Inserting these things. You know into the script but he was on the set while they were shooting and he would come up with abacus. Okay with ad libs to come up with. Hey why don't you try something like this or something like that. So he was constantly coming up with bids improving the scenes and everything. Castillo apparently did a lot of blocking a lot of seen blocking. He was very good at that. But also john grant help contribute to that. Then i guess what. Maybe you want to get into the whole mccarthy thing with very very very patriotic and he became a a you know somebody who supported mccarthy and the the communist witch hunts and leasing. Rinaldo were blacklisted. So costello saw the people around him who are working on his movies. Where you know accused of being communists or had been in the communist party anyway. So costello wanted anybody who works for him to sign a loyalty oath that you are a member of the communist party and john grant refused to sign it. He says me long enough. I'm not signing anything. So castillo basically fired him and he was gone for a loss that alaska and he was at a house. You're right at it shows and a couple of others that he was gone for but then they brought him back into the fold and he kept writing stuff he worked. I think he worked on just about every colgate comedy hour also. It didn't work on the radio after the kate. Smith show didn't work on the television series because he had sinned feels brockman some other people but he worked on the some of the live shows and the movies are going to ask you guys as we as we wind down. I'm going to ask you guys favorite films and favorite bits favorite moments. But first i'm going to ask bob bob. Why do you have a gold record. Oh well in nearly ninety s a was doing some producing for capitol records and my brother. And i were working on a dean. Martin released the capitol collectors series and the idea of this release. It was going to take for the first time and put all of his chart charted songs on compilation while there was only one problem in that is that dean had nineteen charted records and we were supposed to put twenty tracks onto this.

It's a dramatic role. He plays a drunkard. And it's a little bit. It's interesting to see him in that role because it doesn't play for laughs at all bob. Tell us about some of the challenges of restoring africa screams and jack and the beanstalk too recently. Yeah i mean they were both Independent productions and that jack and the beanstalk which is the current project that we're working on is an enormous challenge because the original elements are gone. The thirty five millimeter color negative The red blue and yellow colour separation masters that were made to protect the film oregon. And i've gone back to records back to the late fifties when the rights were sold to a company in new york whole sterling television. They didn't even get the elements then us so. These materials have been missing for decades. And it's it is challenging because in the case of jaffna beanstalk we have to restoration from released prince that actually played theaters. And for a film. Like jack and the beanstalk that was so enormously popular and and play for so many years. It's a real uphill battle to get very pristine copies but thankfully I've been pretty successful in locating good material. And there's all norma's opportunities to clean things up digitally now And and things that you couldn't do years ago when all the work was done photo chemically or optically on film So we're going to have a version that's gonna be pretty outstanding. And i think fans are going to really enjoy it but do if i can just go back to one point that you're making about their your favorite film of their best film and one thing that i've tried to do over the years anytime. I've had an opportunity to to show their films to annoyance. I've tried to go a little bit out of the safe area. You know everybody can do buck privates or made frankenstein. But i've gone with some of the more obscure ones and what's been really surprising in every single case when shown with an audience even the things you think are really poor like avidan console. Go to mars or meet captain kidd. They come to life on the big screen. I'll bet and the audiences respond and there's a laughter and it's It's it just gives the film a whole new appreciation of don't get when you're watching it on television by yourself. Doing the lord's work bob. Thank you so bravo. Thank you very much important work. There was a man Who is like the third string film critic at the new york times for many years named howard thompson. He was a very good writer and and very witty and for many years he did their tv listings and one of my all time. Favorites doesn't express my sentiment. But i have to admire the joke. Because the listing said abbas cello go to mars. This comment was and about time. A- also right lost the last less in alaska lost his right. It brings to mind the classic leonard baltin movie guide review for. Isn't it romantic. Leonard which is my favorite thing of all time. This got me in the guinness book of world records and it was a reader who submitted it because of the review is no a review of all time. Perfect i mean. There's not a highly informative review. I grant you but i couldn't talk. Speaking about is a good actor. He was given the chance to act. You guys talk about it. In your book. Bob and run an abbott and costello and that that movie like timer their lives gives him something different to do and you guys make the argument that it proves that he could have been a character actor. He gets to be the hero in that too which is a rare thing. Yeah i think he's saying he's not used to working without lou anybody's working with these other characters in the in context and he only postseason with lou at the very beginning of the movie but he really does carry the film. And you're right he does. He's the butt of anger as spirit. And he's also the guy who redeems himself at the end so he does carry a lot of the movie and in fact in fact some so much so that at one point costello wanted to switch parts so he's and he stayed away from the set for a few days until luke acquiesced and he said no. We're not gonna switch playing the ghost and that was it and that turned out to be great because it's a very touching film also with in that in his character you know being down to the earth and things and let's talk about some of the other after the success of meat frankenstein me jekyll and hyde killer yellow. Yeah visible or as karloff and it meet the mummy by then. Abbot was putting on weight. So just an sec again. Louis just been sick again. They'd lost a lot of weight. So that's why the scales were balanced differently. There meet the mummy. Is the last universal picture. Run yes yeah. I kind of like it in spite of the fact that it is in prime i. It's i think it's just back from las than alaska. That's for sure me too. I agree. I mean i like the middle ones. I may be in the minority in society. I like to life there. Yeah like naughty nineties. I know they're not considered top five. I had done. It is one of my favorites the first one without music. Yeah done it very much done. It has the little majda who's on first exactly two of them. There's the watt and volt bit. What's and then. There's the bit where the the the routine is playing the radio. 'cause they're famous enough at that point to parody themselves. Yeah that's a great moment in that movie. It's really funny when they turn on the radio here themselves. it's good. I like pardon. My sarong alive and I also like the. I like the service comedies as well but privates is a great one hold that goes probably equal with frankenstein. I mean i really. Joan davis can't be. He can't be joan davis in that movie. you know. And she's really funny and that and perfectly suit to work with.

"Life episode. That ralph edwards did guy yeah and And bud refers to their breakup of backing forty five and says you know. It was just stubbornness and you know. There's no good reason for it to happen. And it's so so frighteningly bad taste where he delivers that like a real game show hosts fashion goes and we'll be hitting upon the time that the saddest thing that could happen in any man's life the death of his child and then later in the show and they start talking about it. I think they play paul geometry. So you'll know that it's saying early television. Here's a here's a listener question from a friend of ours. Bob greenberg who does a pretty good Lou costello gilbert. You'll love this. I've always been unclear about buds jewish roots. I ran into bud junior and a convention years ago when he was wearing a star of david on this one leonard. I know nothing about this well. Abby willing to learn its mother was jewish so and then buds a married but got remarried. I think to his wife has said the same. Wipe they'd had another ceremony in the nineteen fifties. Where they do. They did a jewish ceremony but but have been married by a minister originally. But i don't know if. I don't think he practiced bob the did bug junior. Ever say anything about it now. I don't recall now. I mean i went to was a lutheran. I mean the the family was raised lutheran. I believe so. I was trying to give you one their gil. I know i did hear about that. He was jewish. Got all the stooges come on and the marx brothers. Exactly here's a. Here's another one from jonathan windshield. Do you guys all agree that abbott and costello meet frankenstein is by far the team's best film. And if not. What is your opinion of the best film leonard. Well i think it's not only their best film but it's a terrific movie. Yes by any standard by any measure and a time has been very kind to that movie. It looks better than ever and joel barton. Did a great job as director. And i can make himself much. I don't think he was. A gum has acted in some movies. And then he worked his way up from like prop man to assistant director and then he became a director but he directed so many comedies. I mean movies and tv episode episodic television lined joe besser. I think said that you know. He was one of the best comedy directors a around at the time they were comfortable with them talked about their home movies or their take their notorious outtake. Do i hope. Bobby barbara shows up in some of those aspects. You betty does. Have to mention bobby barbara. Because i promise you know. It's it's just a gift to drew friedman. Well i was. I was enjoying a bob. Firmenich is responsible for putting out africa screams. Yes and just a gorgeous gorgeous blu ray copy and it has among the extra features on it are out taste and to call him out. Takes is really stretching the definition because it was it was the these. Were like intro. Gags like you do. Suffer a christmas real. And that was the the equivalent in abbott and costello case. So i mean they're fun. Well i've seen. I've seen like glenn. Strange cracking up one loosening on his lap. Frankenstein i've seen some of them. Bob didn't make any. Did you make any other discoveries. and he Well again the outtakes are fascinating. Because i believe lou may have been one of the first if not the first to ask studio editors to assemble a gag. Reel or they. Call them blowups He started doing it in nineteen forty two. I think pardon my sarong was the first blow up real and he did it for almost every film up until africa Leonard are you aware of any other Actors or stars. You know requesting gag reels of their movies at that time. Not really. I mean those warner brothers. Blow up reels from the late thirties. But that was done by the studio for a christmas party and I don't know of any any other. Stars are celebrities. Who did things like that. By the way he just in passing. You mentioned the title. I think about the we're in the year. Twenty twenty you expect to open a newspaper or go online and see a movie title of today. Call pardon my sarong robertson.

"The things where he's talking about. Atomic reagan's nuclear reactor put down at atomic bomb bomb. Right that's right. Yeah yeah but but he run. How many shows did do with candy candido you. That he did a few live shows with him. I think maybe six or seven maybe and they got good reviews the variety gala. Very good review. They did a place called the holiday house in pittsburgh which probably was a big venue. And eventually i think but just i did get sick. I think at one point a on a tour and then he lost his hartford because he didn't think that it was the same as working with louis he said quoted saying nobody could live up to liu. So i mean. I'm thinking about but abbott i mean. He was in burlesque many years before he teamed with louise he had seen dozens of comics from backstage from working in box offices even from his father's day's his father was a advanced man for the mutual mutual for the columbia so budwood had grown up around burlesque and he'd seen dozens and dozens of comics. He's finally saw lou. He's like this is the guy and fainting for lou. Lou would work with many straight men and he went this does. He's the best treatment in business. You know it was. It was meant to be an added. Thanks so an epileptic. They were stories that sometimes a castillo could sense. When one of abbott's sample uptick fits were starting. Cbs's yeah lou could punch him in the solar plexus and that would bring him out of it so apparently it wasn't that often but it could happen on the set once in a while and one of the reasons that had the This guy Murray teff around. He was also that they carry them case. He did get a seizure and and but apparently the thing about being a performer. Who has to go out in front of a live audience. And you're worried about having a seizure in front of your live audience. Thousands of people have come to you. Estella sponged work like fibula later. Something he's body. I guess i guess. Being of having been a boxer for a little bit of his life Helped with that for castillo. He tried amateur boxing for for a few months or so. Lot of boxing scenes lou in the rink. He's he's awesome buck privates privates abstinence-only. So we have the year right because we talked about the eighty fifth anniversary. I mean if they don't start officially working together as duo till thirty six do they work together for the first time in thirty five which we said was eighty five years ago l. tinge at the theater named after julian elton who was a famous scene male impersonator who true crowds and they built the theatre for his performances. Believe he was he was huge. He was a huge star and But by that point you know during the depression like half of the theaters on broadway. Wor dark because there was nobody was coming to broadway because brushing so the theater owners started. Leasing them out to less companies and that was one of them the l. Tinge and thirty five i thirty five. It had been opened a few years in avenue castillo. We're on the same bill with their different partners at abbott. Had every evanston and lou had joe lions canadian. Born straight men and lines was ill for whatever reason and bud did a scene with the actually. They did the lemon bit. A lemon table routine was their first routine together. I like to say that you know who's on. I made them famous but the lemon table brought them together and they went their separate ways because they had been booked on other circuits thinking. Back about Early in january of thirty six they teamed up and they got to work for the minsk and they had to been ski separately. Before that went out was on the minsk circuit after that. So and i remember seeing a lewd to the lemon bit and crazy house in a couple of other those Burlesque standbys on the steve allen. Primetime show at this is in the fifties. So i was very young but the memory is so vivid to me because it was lou costello and there. He was on live tv even to a young kid. That was that was really exciting. And i remember one of the shows that he was on was one that steve did from havana. Obviously before fidel painter power They did a remote episode of the sunday night. Primetime show from havana. Cuba with lou was hyman roth in that episode. Also just not just off state. They was odd. This story that. I've heard a few times. The saying that the lace nail in the coffin their teamwork was. Lucas made earlier forties. Yeah that was in. That was a big rift in nineteen forty five where costello fired made. Abbot hired her because she was dating his is butler chauffeur and castillo. When you got a fire the mate and he says i'm a fire in the Free country can hire whoever i want and that they were just about to go out on a on a tour and they had a big fight and they didn't speak to each other except on stage during that and then played around. Custodio said you know that was really a ridiculous reason to have a fight but almost act was you know. All of the gossip columnist carried it that they were speaking and breaking up and universal. Going to movies with castillo. University's not going do movie stallone's all this stuff. So then the has hard copy they were. They were still very big very popular start. I just watched on youtube. The this is your.

"Of him in that role but try to explain it to person in a rational way. He's never seen this show or heard of joe becerra. It's you just had to be there bingo. The chimp lest we forget mr blue and mr lewis brother-in-law remember like we were saying before giving information to the audience. Mike my old time favorite was on abbott and costello where they have to come up with some scheme and they had to get a print out a bunch of signs or whatever and it says hey. Remember that printing pressure on your birth paper. The savings bonds saw those. We listened. Okay i buy it could happen. I heard that bingo and lou did not get along bingo. The chimp down any any Any on this yet bingo. Bit both sid sinfield and lou costello at some point feels told the story of jim mulholland. Actually he said. I got bitten by the chimp. I'm taken to the hospital and the guy goes what happened to. You is like a bit by bit by chimp and says i'm working with abacus. So you're working with avenue castillo my kids. Can i get an autograph and it was like one of my finger. You know we've got a story but he made the mistake. Bigger made the mistake of binding lou and that was it. You know if you watch actually if you watch the episodes of bingo. Bingo is punches lou. Really funny kind of afraid of them. You really watch closely. You can see the body language. But hillary got along with bingo. Great and bud seems to be and talks to bingo way. Casella you know. Larry talk about well you know. We talked a little bit about some of the rumors about their fights and stuff but we really should talk about the talent. We should those guys and but it was just amazing. I mean he's just he's actually as funny as castillo in his own way. I don't question you know steering the ship. Yeah i always thought if you're a true abbott and costello fan you realize average the funding one. He i mean what i love. Well like in. Who's on first base. You know i'm a pretty good catch your myself. And he goes so they tell me that funny. Abbott and costello meet frankenstein. Costello's doing his. You know he can. He's trying to mime frankenstein and dracula and goes okay. Okay for giant. I mean as as the letter said he kind of steered the ship but he also had a delivery that was just a joy to watch all. Yes i know. They're doing routine where he he comes. In and louis Reading a comic book and gets into this bit where he's he's been looking for a job all day and he finally got a job. He's loafing in a bakery and they go into this whole routine and at one point but it's very like a kind of fatherly puts his hand on his shoulder and he says i never you but my whole family will bofors was big. Cut war moment. The greatest straight men ever groucho said. That didn't he about bud quite a quite a couple. Of course. Tom smothers is tom. Smothers said that. His brother dicky models the act model his performance of on bud abbott and hostility toward the during the sympathy on tommy by being angry and kind of admonishing him. These are huge fan of abbot of abbott. While he picked the right role model. Because there's nobody better than better true. And and when they do who's on first you realize what makes the big work is. It's a completely ridiculous farmers and app. It sends it that you think. Oh this makes perfect sense. Who's first what's a both believe it. It's they both are very much a in that world and the universe of verbal bit and he could no one could stop the merger up them and say wait a minute. What are you talking about. Because they're they're they're in it. They're engaged you could make the argument that that Because but is such a good actor. He turned to be a good actor. He's because that's part of selling it absolutely he's invested in the moment. I mean one of the things about that routine net Lou talked about somebody asked them. You give ever got tired of doing it. And he said no because abbots always trying to trip me up. And i'm always trying to trip him. So that's how that's kind of how. They kept their fresh. Maybe a thousand times. I mean the press agency fifteen thousand but that's ridiculous. That'd be like twice a day for every day that they were together. Which would be you know. i would say. Probably wind up killing each other if they did it that often but but that was one of the secrets of the routine was to keep the freshness to but they also you could also see in certain versions where they get lost in it for a little bit themselves and then they come out of it so it. It's a brilliant routine. And they. You know that a lot of norman abbott but a nephews credited lou with really a adopting the routine out of burlesque and making them work on it to become the great routine because it had been around in different forms for for decades really was something call you know where burn fields had done watched. I worked on wall street and there was another one called. Who's the boss. Who's who's your boss. Who's double read. That phil silvers in rags ragland. Did it to fill said he did it in the in the documentary bob the hey added okay so it had been around for a long time. Yeah not not in the form that lou. Of course i think it was like a short story the way the other guys did it. And they just stake piling bits into it and adding outfielders and all that other than doubling back sometimes as wide come downs and collected whose wife guess i told the ball to who naturally i thought the whom naturally that they added all this death. I like to the payment when you pay the first basement every month. Who gets the money every everything. But it's just so defiant. Why you get this about this. I don't buy that the audience where you go. We'll a here. yeah i was. I don't know if i should admit to this but One time in the seventies you remember the seventy papers and i wrote a variation on that bit using the names of popular rock groups of the time.

"After a couple of films they typed in or us either i. I've never seen firemen saved by child does it. Is it any good. Haven't seen that don shaking his head. No i'm sorry once. I start once a very long time i never. I didn't learn about until i read. Leonard's movie comedy teams book. And i was like. Oh my god. This is mind blowing that they weren't in that movie. And then i saw the movie was on like some. Uhs fs channel. And i was like. Oh my god thank god. They didn't do this movie. But also the director was charles lamont on originally was charles lamont and then he did the screen test for hackett. And you'll brian and he said i'm not gonna the movie so he asked off the movie. What happened castillo. Were off the movie. And leslie godwin's i think wound up doing it and ahead go ahead. I was going to say in a cruel twist of fate. Hack hackett winds up playing lou all these years later well you know. He wasn't the first choice. Actually the first choice in the bud and lou movie were dan aykroyd and john belushi. Who wanted to do it. I wanted to play abacus. Stella gill and bernie girls. They're they're their agent. Bernie brill. Stein said 'cause they were just really glues. Brother was just starting to really connect and they said no. We're not going to do it. And of course thank god. They didn't cause the movie turned out to be terrible. And then the other piece of news is that Fr- buddy hackett went to frank sinatra. And said you wanna play bud. Abbott and franken. Yeah i'll play but abbott said. Nbc said we don't want. Franks 'cause i guess he's a tv movie or two and it was really hard to work with item. I'm not sure what the rationale was. Nbc said we don't want frank and then he went but he got newhart bob newhart which would actually an interesting kind of choice and newhart hemmed in hard and took too long to to say he wanted to do it or not. Then he backed off and then buddy hackett was going to quit. And then they got harvey korman. Who is who is great. I love harvey by buddy hackett scenarious but not nothing these movies and no no sir. Most importantly in the movie. Hardy johnson is i think eddie sherman sherman and and he gives he snakes him takeout strawberry. Malted to which buddy hackett says. Hey i i added either in mall teach by a bingo dies because now i now i'll never forget. Your rendering of that over was forced to sign the same contract. Leonard l. lou costello was allergic to strawberry. That's news to me in in discussing this with bob. And ron the other day an appre call that we had. That's quebec not quite what happened with with lou. No it was pretty widely reported in all the papers that his last words maybe not as dramatic as the strawberry multi. Buddy asked the nurse if she can help him role on his side to be more comfortable and that was it. And that's when he went. I don't where the strawberry milkshake came from. I tell you isolate at tv movie. When it first aired. I was guest around sixteen or so. I still haven't gotten over. It was unbelievably bad traumatizing. And the funny thing about it is. It's like somebody funding mute when they do their routines you'd think that the two of them never sore kostelic. No timing at all see that. They're reading on cue cards. It's really it's very sad especially the go ahead. No especially when you see like the laurel and hardy movie standing ali which has just done so well so affectionate again. The problem the thing is that that movie was written by somebody who is a fan and really sent them a love letter and these the abacus telling movie was kinda the opposite. It was bob. Thomas did the book with eddie sherman. Who had an apparently had an ax to grind. And a lot of the people that bob thomas talked to bob and i talk to these people the same people and even jamal holland. Who did the first avenue castillo book. A beautiful book that greg leonard published back in the day but jamal and and we and delo all interview the same people that bob thomas did and we didn't get any of those horror stories that wound up in his book and then wound up in the movie. Portraying louis such an sob leonard. Remember that period of hollywood. Where they're churning out all those really offensively bad hollywood bio-pics gable and lombard. Wc fields and me. Unfortunately i remember him very well. Alevtina one you know of. When when will they quit. what can we do. What kind of go fund me and we start to deny them. The ability to make biotechs.

There's there's about a billion apps for that right so wherever it is you listen to music. We have a new album. It's called the highway kind and I think definitely what it'll be fun for people. Listen to this record is hopefully when they listened to in their ten songs. They'll walk away saying man that nude is in a happy place in life because again. There's no songs about death. Not in writing songs about the biggest experiencers no songs about You know my first Divorce divorce years and years ago so This is a record about my current life. Is my wife love. We have the kids and the songs and you know. I don't want to be the artist that overhypes it But i would say everyone near me dear to me. Other artists My family whoever everyone says this is our best album today. And i think that that is just an awesome compliment. You know because once you get six seven albums in a lot of people like albums one. Two three and and so. It's hard for people to want to listen to new stuff right because we've already had songs on the radio. So those are the songs people wanna listen to. But you know you just gotta hope that people get this new record chance and see like how much we've grown as an awesome. Well best of luck with the new album. I'm going to have a lincoln description.

What type of advice do you have that new dad or for that about to be father. Who's out listening shirt. My instant go-to for guys having their first kid is the first couple months especially blurred but there's only so much you can do. I mean it's just nature's inherent way that the mom is just more involved in the first few months right In the skin on skin contact and the whole thing. And so i just tell everybody. Yeah your jobs to help with the baby but the best way you can help with. The baby really is to help your wife. You know mama al so making sure that she doesn't have to worry about our their groceries. Have the clothes been wash. You know the sheets getting done and the towels and I know that sounds so. Misogynistic amounts drydock. I'm not gonna say that. That's a woman's role but just in a lot of traditional homes like usually the wife is the one who worries about that kind of stuff. And so i told my buddies like man. Your job is to make sure that she didn't have to worry about her. Thin cleaning mean anything all. She needs to worry about that baby. Don't let she doesn't need to worry about the bill. She doesn't need to worry about anything. So whatever you can do to make her life easier. Do you know bringer go to starbucks and get her cappuccino in the morning. You know go do the things that she needs. You do the stuff that she likes to do. The errands and so your long winded answer.

"I'll tell you something about that Sean that is everyone in your audience publicly remembers knock down drag out for the United States Senate between Beto O'Rourke and Ted Cruz There was a very effective and precise poll that was done at the time that election took place. It was an exit poll people who had already voted and believe it or not One of the questions poll is have you moved to Texas from California? In, the past five years and if so, who did you vote for Ted Cruz Juan the percentage fifty, eight percent of the people moved from California voted for Ted Cruz not for better work and the reason sean is this and that is the reason why they're fleeing. California the reason why they're fleeing new work and some other states and coming to Texas is because they're trying to get away from the liberalism socialism of these. Other states and they're coming to Texas for the freedom, and so we are importing the people who are freedom seeking people understand this. If you believe in more regulation more taxation, the elastic that you will leave as California and the last night you'll come to the state of Texas we believe low taxes, low regulations we believe in law enforcement and the rule of law, and so people know exactly what they're getting when they come. Here, and hence we are attracting the kinds of people who will keep Texas Texas I have friends who have my I have family members that have now moved to Texas, and you know, let me play for you. I'd never thought I'd hear this from a major political party. Let me play Biden dummy play Kamla Harris applauding the mayor's move to de Fund and Biden's police become the enemy listen surplus military equipment for law enforcement. They don't need that last thing you need is an up armored Humvee coming into a neighborhood just like the military and fading. They don't know anybody who could become the enemy they're supposed to protecting these people. So my generic point is that we agree that we can redirect of funding. Yes. Absolutely. One of the things that we also need to be doing is fundamentally changing the way and pushing it for years changing the way. We deal with our prison system. We got reexamine what we're doing with American taxpayer. Dollars s the question. Are we getting the right return on our investment? Are we actually creating healthy and safe communities and that's a legitimate conversation and it requires a really critical evaluation I plot Eric Garcetti for doing what he's done. Wow I mean. I. Never Thought I mean, that's that that is a major political parties, their candidates for President Vice President. Governor Sean that people must come to grips with, and that is this election were voting either for safe communities or dangerous communities. We're we're voting for law enforcement or by the rule of mob like what we saw in Seattle with the autonomous zone your voters very lives in property. Re remember that man and woman husband wife in Saint Louis, they had to pull out their own guns to defend their own property and defend. Their lives because the police were not there to help them out independent and so the Second Amendment and the ability to defend yourself in the ability to have safe insecure communities is on the ballot. This election stay right there. If you can governor stick with US Governor Greg Abbott of Texas I'm GonNa tell you what governor Cuomo said about conservatives like me that live in New York when we get back on the other side.

"Now I told you about the polar earlier in the show today I mean, there's not only a convention bounce trump is gaining on Biden according to Rasmussen but now the president's tied even in. MINNESOTA. Minnesota's employees and I would argue Nevada's GonNa play and New Mexico in New Hampshire, and we certainly need that second congressional district in Maine but we got to win Florida. Georgia North Carolina or. Got To win Iowa Arizona you gotTA. Pick off Pennsylvania. Wisconsin Michigan Minnesota. I'd make I put them all in play all these cities and states how Liberal Democrats done in decades of rule. Hey, why didn't Barack Anjos set one record after another unemployment for minorities in America? Why didn't they do it? Why didn't they go forward with criminal justice reform? Wires in the media mob. Identifying Joe Biden's praise of a former Klansman filibustered the civil rights act was against the voting rights act and then partnered with the former Klansman to stop. You know the issues of segregation integration it didn't want his kids in schools integrated schools of become a racial jungle hose. His words imagine if trump it said that what has he done in fifty plus years at the swamp nothing? What can you point to? What record did they shatter in eight years spider the lies that we've been hearing at this convention thirteen, million more Americans food stamps eight, million more poverty and the lowest labor participation rate in the since the seventies and the worst recovery since the forties that's their record. That's JOE's record. That's barracks record. Didn't grow into the job so that would be Obama. The laziest president that hidden by noon do anything. Biden fell asleep. Put everyone else to sleep. Why did Obama? Support Hillary over Joe. Why did he wait so late to support Joe because he doesn't the never underestimate Joe's ability to f this up that's what Obama set an politico. Anyway we I hope you're right I. really do thank you for the.

"Go speak at a convention and talk about basically this is a four alarm fire. You have to defeat this Guy President Obama make clear he believes that this is an existential threat and when I say this, he was talking about his successor, the man in the White House right now I, mean you almost saw it as a break glass in case of an emergency moment and he was breaking the glass. We're powerful words from the former president, the United States he didn't mince any of that and I think it was truly historic. Namely Anderson a history making speech from Harris and really history shaking speech by a President Obama. Just an extraordinary speech. This was sort of the new definition of the fierce urgency of now and I could see him in the oval. Office, it was intimate and it was chilling and he was declaring a national emergency and what he was doing was saying. I need you to save democracy President Obama's speech tonight slate me I'm sure people have different opinions fixes a different kind of thing from him but his warnings that we could potentially be at the end of American democracy. Scared, me and I found upsetting in our watch but just powerful. Powerful stuff. This was the the speech that Obama has given throughout all this I've read or watched that absolutely did feel like the most of a warning and I think it was warning about the potential end of America and that seems dramatic when people say it and people throw around. If we have one former years of trump, the country will end but there is a fundamental sense that if you break every institution that made it possible for there to be a Barack Obama, it will end I, mean, it's almost there almost evolved turned into Chris Matthews. We used to play this montage all the time. Well, let's pull up a Hannity classic and. and. I had to do. This is one of the funniest bits.

"Radio specials. Seventy five days until you we the people, you are the ultimate jury. And I have an urgency that I keep talking to you about and that is that everything matters everything's on the line, their stated policies. You know they're now saying all of this openly Democrats used always hide it It matters we have a full election by the way on Hannity Dot, com it's interactive it's informational and that is okay. How do you register in your state? How do you? Want, as early voting start near steak and you believe sixteen states will have early voting already started before Biden and trump ever debate. That's madness anyway information you need to know for example, what about? Locations for voting what about absentee ballots if you WanNa if you voting absentee this year. Toll on Hannity Dot Com who's running for Congress where you live is there a Senate race where you live this year? It's all update. Now what's Amazing Rasmussen has their poll out today is is now you know day three of the Democratic National Infomercial I mean the most of I mean it's I could watch more infomercials, choose it any day over this. It's so dull so bad so boring. It's pathetic but now they have likely. Voters Forty Eight, forty four. The. Race is tightening week ago. Biden was up forty, nine, forty three. So, not exactly a big convention. They'll probably likely get something There's a brand new poll showing president trump and a dead he would Joe Biden and the ultra blue state of Minnesota. Law Order Safety. Security isn't on the ballot I think people in Minnesota according to this poll there they watched what happened in Minneapolis and they're appalled what happened there to watch these council members spend taxpayer dollars for their own personal security and then de-fund the police. Were watching this. You Know Adam shift show unfold before very is in their denying. Denying it all at some believable. Anyway. Hang on one. Second. Anyway, and so they got now that's that's in play. That's all in play to give you an idea just how unusual it is for. Republican even come close to winning Minnesota Note Gop.

"Welcome back to working now. Your host Ramana Lomb. And I'm your other host Isaac Butler Isaac. I hope you and your family are thriving in this weird period that I feel like there's no applicable now for you and I keep abreast of each other's movements on twitter. And so I know that. Like seventy people. You're not letting this larger crisis interrupt your cultural diet. You're still reading and watching movies and television. Yeah you know at the beginning there it Kinda did. I sort of felt like I didn't have the brain space to focus on anything. That was more than maybe twenty. Two minutes long Just because of the world like the only thing I really have to compare it to. Maybe the first six weeks after Iris was born. You know Only this time instead of sleeplessness. It was of course anxiety and just you know the world creeping in But now I really am trying to read books and watch a Lotta movies and stuff I mean. Some of that is just book research. Because the part I'm gearing up to write about right now is like how method acting changed American film and Popular Culture. So I have to watch a lot of twentieth century film and Popular Culture but I'm also trying to find time to do it for pleasure and to be connected to other human beings real and imaginary and understand the world and the human condition and society in new ways. I mean all that stuff you know that we want culture to give us all. Those kind of incredible gifts are still there. You know they might re differently or feel differently now but it still serves all of those purposes. I don't know about you but I find that my and looking at other people's cultural habits are changing though like lots of people for some reason wanted to watch outbreak and contagion when this all started which just seemed bizarre to me but like who am I to judge. Whatever gets you through it? It's fine and like you can't go see live theater so now people are streaming recordings of old productions or there's zoom table readings of plays and you know some people love that stuff some people just can't deal with it. You know for me. I find that I just really wanna be captivated by something that is not always my first priority with art but right now it's like I just want to encircle me and for me to like not wanna focus on anything else but I think there's an audience that goes to things like outbreak in contagion during a period of outbreak contagion in search of sort of Catharsis because reality can't quite provide that and I think that the inverse of that is. There's an audience that wants to watch thirty rock and some diverted entertained. And I think they're both valid and I think they both speak to the solace that arts and culture can provide and I think that's so important and I'm so glad that we have writers and filmmakers on the makers of television shows who out in the giving us that ability to transport us from this reality into another this week. You actually talked to one of those people. Megan Abbott and I thought it was a really fun conversation. Meghan is a wonderful and beloved crime novelist. Who's written around nine novels? She often writes about female adolescence. in fact my favorite book of Hers You Will Know Me is about a young Gymnastics protege and every one of her books there's just this really wonderful controlled intensity to her writing and I was really interested to talk to her for a few reasons. First because I think there is something that happens on a process level as you become really experienced at making the thing you make That process might be really different from your process. When you're just starting out and just trying to figure out you know what a book is and how it works. But I was also interested in talking to her because she's recently shifted gears and started writing more for television she wrote for David Simon's the Deuce and she recently Co created and was the CO show runner with Gina for Tori of dare me which is a TV adaptation of one of her novels and I should mention here that inbetween my talking to her. And this interview airing. Usa Network announced dare me wasn't being picked up for a second season which is an interesting reminder that in the midst of all of this the companies that produce culture still have to figure out how to make money but you know like how they make those decisions in the midst of all this which involves making some predictions about people's watching habits a year. Now is totally beyond.
