This performance in the Agnes Moorehead Award. That's that's a really, that's a really prestigious achievement. Yes, I played an old movie star named Judy Holliday. And what was great about it is that you know there's tapes and videos of her. So I had to inhabit her body and her voice and she has a little bit when she talks like this really fun to see what it is, is somebody new, which is totally different from my like Chicago cop persona. You know, we had Patrick Pflueger and Andi. I know he was just texting me. I was like, how did it go? What he was, but he was talking about be starting out on the stage. Age on DH. That's that's where you began. When was the last time you were on stage and do you miss it? No, I really missed it. But, you know, I spent a lot of time building to get here.

Chatty's is correct part of pronounced eight ways from Sunday. I'm sure I'm sure anymore. It's a lot of vowels and a lot of oxidants and just roll with the punches. I've got a one syllable name and people get that wrong. So so I Yeah, I can. I can I can fully sympathize you, you You were in AA, a production that the Patricia wrote. And produced and directed called Light. Yes, um I want to talk about that. Because it was such a powerful and moving piece. And then that movie can be seen on a website like lasagne. Dada work because it's it's about what it's about. We we distribute our short films to counseling centers and detention centers and we make them Films with a purpose. You want to see this as you're hearing about it, and I didn't know if the whole film was available there. Really? I was going to ask you, Ben. But then what is stunning Wood and Amy Morgan, who couldn't be with us, and we hope that everything is is okay with With her and her family, but the but You. You brought such emotion with with a minimum of awards to this piece on and I I know you're very close. You guys wrap around Patricia like a warm family blanket. But not anymore because I cove it. It's like that's just calling. That's inviting trouble in fairy these days. I suppose you have. Ah, if you're an actor in a film that doesn't have a lot of words. That's you really have to trust your director because you have to trust that. What? What? You're emoting or what? Your feelings being captured on screen. You don't have any words just sort of rely on and I think honestly, I'm not just he knows. Spouting compliments, But I think that's more of a testament to Trish otherness to me that she was able to get what she wanted out of me and other the shot. That's really I think more director's medium, but I'm glad you liked it. I'm glad it was good, though you were about and that's a diminished not to diminish Patricia, but that that also that also takes a mastery. Of of acting in order to pull To pull the value of those emotions out of out of yourself and and express them, especially non verbally. I mean, I feel like I learned a lot since I started on Chicago P d camera. I mean, I started the theatre actor. If I feel I was just much bigger before, and I sort of learned tone it down a swell and one of the problems they say with theater actors is that they turn it down so far that they turn off because they don't know how to To sort of keep it into a small box their emotions and they try and make it so small that they sort of disappear and so, finding that balance for theater actors on film, Teo to have enough but not disappear, But not too much is in theater. Ah, is a really tricky balance Well, and it was hard because when you first came on P d you in uniform And a lot of comedic scenes with Anna and it was hard. How do you tone that town when it's kind of the right, right? Right, Right. I remember I had, like a year of directors tell other show telling me, Doctor Don't smile and do it. Don't do it again. When I brought him his product for intelligence, they're like, Yeah, that's great. Just don't smile. They would find a sort of move my character into a sort of a darker place, which they definitely have. But it was like a year of like Tonal notes of doing your wonderful on the show and you were. You were really wonderful in in light on and I didn't want to call out because we spoke about it before before the show today, Patricia Scott Field. Who? Ah, who was your camera? Director of photography director of photography who? Ah, And I'm guessing this was a collaboration. But the you know the tree from the city to the lake. Andi. Intimacy of the shots was absolutely beautiful. We we had. We only had a little tiny 10 person crew.

You have great writers on your on your payroll, there that are writing these things, and you have a very I mean, it's just a quality magazine and it's, it's been out a long time. And you've got you figured it out. Well, thanks great. Well, I mean, Chuck shading, who started the magazine sort of set the template in the sense that he, he reminded me with every issue. He did the down just a very broad umbrella. I mean I love I love radio. I know you will both live radio. If this had strictly been a radio publication, there'd be an awful lot. We'd miss out on. Yeah. So the fact is that yes, we can, we can cover radio and radio performers like Agnes Moorehead, but we can cover movies and movie stars like may west and Burt Lancaster who are both in the summer issue. We can cover though the golden age of humor fiction, and how all those great stories were made into movies with share by the. Dozen on television to classic. TV is part of it.

"Hall of Famer Chuck shade about the ninety fifth anniversary of WGN radio and it storied history. So WGN we were talking about the nineteen thirties. They were part of a network at the time called the mutual broadcasting system. It was the only network that did not have any owned and operated stations. It was a programming service kind of network, and they were formed by WGN Chicago. W O R in New York. It was also w l w in Cincinnati and XYZ in Detroit, and all of those stations join together to really form, what was called mutual broadcasting system and the each of the stations to some degree provided programming. They'll pitched in. Yeah. Yeah. For original programming that was heard prior the prior to their organization together. But also, and after that would be heard locally, and then it would be heard on the national scale more or less and those stations constituted, a gigantic part of the coverage because they're all powerful stations. And so the mutual broadcasting system continued for many, many years, it was finally, it dwindled down to just a news and sports service, kind of network. And but at the time in the nineteen thirties. Because in competition with CBS and NBC there was no television. This was your source for entertainment. Yeah. Oh, that's right. That's right. And, and they did all these original programs from the stations that had more or less. Part of the audience, some programming that they had was was basically well, like a bulldog Drummond radio program detective kind of show with not very well known actor portraying bulldog Drummond, with a little organ music, and sound effects guy, and never studio audience for anything like that. But it fill the time, and then the local stations would sell into those programs as well. But there were a number of major programs heard the mutual network that really boomed out across the country and became very, very famous shadow is probably one of the biggest who knows what he will lurk in the hearts of men have Shanteau, and that was on the air for ten or fifteen ten or fifteen years. And it was when you think about that these radio shows were on for very long periods of time anymore. Kids and you talk today. Everything is what primetime demographic and all of this stuff. This shadow was on so. In Chicago at four thirty in the afternoon on Sunday. Now, you think Sunday, the afternoon, there's not wouldn't who would be listening, but it was five thirty in the east and the, you know, it was a great Phil. And it was you, you heard had heard at one time. Orson Welles as Lamont Cranston wealthy, young man about town who went to the orient and learn the powers to cloud men's minds. And Agnes Moorehead was his companion, the lovely Margot lane as they as they always said and Orson, you might know this orbison had difficulty saying the shadow knows. And he didn't like to do that. He didn't want to do it. So they had used the voice a recording of an earlier actor who preceded Orson came up. Yeah. And they use that layoff because Orson while he didn't want to do it. He was busy, and he was he was playing the shadow even at the time around the time he was scaring, the dickens out of the country with his war of the worlds broadcast. Now, you mentioned Sunday afternoons different back, then you had an early dinner and after dinner, maybe one two three o'clock. And then by that time you were kind of settled in and ready to listen to some radio. Well, that's it. And, and, and you would, you know, some people were real radio families than they listen to all day long on the weekends and all into the evening, but and, and sometimes they were visiting people used to a lot of relative visiting to one another, and you may not have been to listen to every show and every every station every time, but they were so dependable the programs, especially. These mutual programs. They were there year in and year out. You can always depend on. They didn't do a lot of juggling around with the with the timetables. They didn't put this program over here. They weren't word you know what the what the biggest rating acknowledgement was. It was so much, what, what the Hoover rating had for the station. But it was how many products sponsor soul. You know, some of those afternoon kids shows you had Jack Armstrong, for example, Tom mix, and all those other shows, if they were moving the product off the grocery shelves sponsors. That's the rating, I want matter what the agency would say, well, you've got this kind of an on it. Yeah. Yeah. I know that's fine. But I want I want the boxes to move off the shelves. That's why they used to get the premiums secret. Decoders whistles all those highly collectible, and you get you see those things going to sales would be going up and sponsors, would be happy agencies would be happy. And that's where that went. Now in ranger used to be part of this as well. And that went over to NBC blue and then the adventures of superman was picked up through WR. That's right. Well, now those shows were the, the shadow was originating in, in w are in New York, and the lone ranger originated at W XYZ in Detroit. And that was so, so big that was starting in thirty three in. It was picked up as as mutual became an entity. And, and then that was followed or added to the success of the lone ranger who wrote on Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights. The green hornet game in there and sped with his black beauty automobile with his scientific his his Japanese valid Cato Cato was Japanese until December seven th and then he became a Filipino. Valid is. Well, sure. Because. Attack. And then later on sergeant Preston and the challenge of the Yukon came in there to take care of Saturday's. And so or one other day during the week if there was one opening these shows these adventure shows lone ranger superman were they written for kids? Or was it really written for everybody? The most of the shows were written for an audience that could be there listening to it. Together. Okay. And family audiences dads, and boys. Love the lone ranger. Sure absolutely. But fathers and sons listen to dramatic programs as well. And with the mothers, everybody was together. If you had you had to radios in your home was consul in the living room with a flickering green, I and the other was a small radio that said upon the top of your refrigerator in the kitchen. So and mom was in the kitchen listening to some of the soap operas WGN on every room of the house at some point. Well, it didn't come the radio was on in the two places that was stereo while your kitchen. No one in the while you're walking through the house and missing that one of the longest mutual shows that aired on WGN was the return of Nick Carter. And Nick Carter master detective. That's right. Yeah. They've there'd be knock at the door, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, may, what is, what is it? This is a case for Nick Carter. We used to laugh case a coke or a case of beer. But, but that was those were very low budget programs. But they were but they were very effective. And it gave good programming to these independent stations, who independently would not want to have big cast of actors all the time will, you know, suspense, which was on CBS head-on famous actors, but they that on mutual. There was the mysterious traveler, which was kind of like a twilight zone and series. Yeah, it was it was a traveller was aboard a train, and he would be telling the story and you do the train chugging along. And he was he he was not identified as, as with any name character name. But he was the mysterious traveler, MAURICE Tarpley was the actor who played the mysterious traveler, and then there was quiz shows, too. So there was twenty questions which ran on the air and then quiet, please, now, now, that is a little bit more. It's a horror like a horror genre. Quiet. Please was a little like lights out not quite as violent as inner sanctum, but a little more subtle, like like the lights. Oh, but that was very good show. And it was on the mutual network that came out of Chicago. That was that was come out of Chicago. You know and, and all there's so many so many things that came out of WGN in Chicago. But it came out of our studios, right? Yeah. Which were in the Tribune tower and time right now and that was that show quite please on a very short period of time. But there's some very, there's episodes that are very highly regarded. Oh, yeah. In the classic radio days. So w radios legends radio hall of Famer Jack brickhouse began his career WGN radio all the way back in nineteen forty Chuck, yet, he started in when he was only eighteen years old in Peoria on a radio station called w m b that was back in nineteen thirty four and then WGN hired him in nineteen forty two broadcast cubs and White Sox games. Now, some gene carried both the cubs and white over there. And they were they were introduced brick house. By their by WGN's top announcer at the time. Bob elson. I just can't believe that Jack was not only, you know, obviously one of the first big sports guys WGN radio. But he was the first face to be seen on WGN television. Well, he was a long lived guy here on Santa line and GM. That's, that's for sure he was in the marines during World War Two, and he missed the nineteen forty five season, but the and that was the only time in his long career as a cubs announcer, and the cubs would win the National League pennant at that time his only pennant as a broadcaster would belong to the White Sox, fifty nine but then either the cubs nor the White Sox won the World Series in forty five or fifty nine Jack brickhouse covered many other events. He always considered himself as an announcer rather than a sports announcer. He said he told me that he would he would rather be known as an announcer, because he did so many different things. I mean he he announced radio programs. He announced dramatic programs. He announced band remotes, and he did all of that, sort. Thing he did other sporting events to. I mean he did some professional wrestling. I guess that must've been television. I don't imagine the Hans and Fritz tabulated tag team match on on radio with Chicago Bears football WGN radio. Forget that it was the nineteen twenty through seventy I believe that the, the bears played and Wrigley field Irv cups in from the daily news. A daily news. The sometimes yeah. Was was his cO list on the whole Kobe commentators, I guess, and that and Jack recaps would say something and, and couplets debts..

"And we just absolutely love hearing from you. All right. It's time for the shadow Orson Welles for a short time we played Lamont Cranston alias the shadow and Agnes Moorehead who was and Dora and be witched was the lovely Margot lane. His psychic like, you're my my sidekick, I'll be Margo lane any day my lane. And the shadow came to radio in the nineteen thirties. But it was not like he wasn't a superhero or like, you know, could cloud men's minds or anything. He was just a narrator of stories out of street and Smith magazine, but by nineteen thirty seven they revamped the whole show and made him the central character. They made him Lamont Cranston. This wealthy young man about town. He had this girlfriend Margot lane. She was the only person that knew that Lamont Cranston was really the shadow or vice versa. The shadow was really on my Cranston and Lamont, Cranston. Had learned the power to cloud your mind. It was a hypnotic power. He could cloud anyone's mind and make himself invisible. To that person a used that power to fight crime. He would you know creep people out he'd come into the room invisible. And each year a murderer. I know you're a murderer, blah, blah, blah, and they people would freak out and kind of confess, and that's what. He used to do. So it was a whole show about that. And it was very popular that would work if only that simple, very popular show. Orson Welles was the first Lamont Cranston. But then he got so popular with the war of the world, and he was making citizen Kane. He left the radio show. Then Bill Johnson took it over John Archer brat Morrison. So I think you're gonna like this. This isn't Orson Welles episode. It's called the power of the mind. It's from April twenty fourth nineteen thirty eight here's part one now of the shadow. Knows. Oh, man. No. Shadow.

You know, this would be the start of maybe a documentary on on finding out maybe digging around and fighting anybody in beaver or Saint George or cedar city or hurricane or any of those areas in Utah had seen anything like it before maybe the townspeople to kind of chime in maybe dude trek out to fifty one or even the test site. Absolutely. I mean, you say yourself best known as the corridor. Then I wanted to surprise if there were more sightings like this out there. Yeah. I mean there have been times where when I lived in Utah. There are places just south of Provo Utah where they were talking about seeing things that they didn't understand. And of course, being having family in Saint George in having them being, you know, back in the fifties being subjected to the Nevada tests, the military and the the nuclear tests.

Movie companies rather John Wayne Agnes Moorehead and others doing westerns. There are many times they were onset. They saw UFO's over the area. Wondering what they were many of them, of course, wrote them off as being experimental aircraft. And no one knew what area fifty one was at that time. And I don't know how long I probably nineteen fifties has had their hands and area fifty one. And most of it's been declassified knowing that they are doing types of experiments there.

And and when people say they look nothing like drones the government says, well, they are drones and the situation in England. It's interesting is that while sixty people saw on December nineteenth over over. Glad Rick airport. The military and the police stepped in and said, Nope, they're drones. And when people were trying to look around for the drones to shut down the airport for three days. We don't see anything, but the radar picked them up. They're invisible. So were either dealing with drones that are able to cloak or special aircraft able to cloak or we have what you have in that some weapon that's movies so quickly or or some aircraft is moving so quickly that the I can't pick up on unless of course, like you say you're shooting something you accidentally pick up on this.
