"The board from Allan Sherman tell you what kind of childhood I had first of all three Stooges I was allowed to watch by my dad my mom no she said out first my not my sister on the head that was the end of the three Stooges but we snuck the three Stooges and because my dad allowed me to watch the three Stooges but we had in our living room one of the big stereo console scenarios that you know they don't longer make anymore one of the big boys and we used to play Allan Sherman records and Bob Newhart records so they were worn out I had every Alan Sherman song memorized and every Bob Newhart routine memorized and you know what that in a bad thing I'm Dave serial it's Saturday morning and that means you wanted out to the phones we go Tom in Bel Air good morning to you Mister Tom how are you Tom we lost him all right we got Tom in Java town Hey Tom how are you Sir good how are you I'm doing well hope you were just going I'm here I'm here to target yeah we had to Tom's arose a sorry about that money so how are you this morning I'm good good my question is I got a two thousand nine forty one fifty Econoline van okay and when I bought it I did have a remote start put a warning okay and it had a like alarm system yes yesterday driving down the road you need to do one liking you could hear it like trying to lock unlock laughed but if you look at the locket just wiggle okay and if you push the button it when it wasn't the one it the locks wouldn't work at all okay so I went to the back door and I just pull the block I guess labeled a lock a little bit and pushed it and started working okay and then later on that afternoon it started doing the same thing well got a situation where the actuator possibly to but you may have two problems you may have what's called a body control module or it could be related to this remote start I'm not a big lover of the remote starts that are installed in the after market a lot of times over time are all by Ford even then still it's still after market unit to a certain extent it may be manufactured for the Ford vehicle but it's still it's not a factory rice so as an adult and they have to get into the system in order to do that that could be affecting the body control module which could be reading this problem the reason why I think it's sticking is because of a mark a actuator but that isn't enough another issue so I think the problem is related to the remote start I would think that would be the primary problem almost all the time we see electrical issues like that if it is something you've been added whether it's a cruise control or remote start or rear camera or some like that to the vehicle the wasn't factory normally they can sometimes be a problem so that's where I would lean towards as being the issue and I think the river one of the actuators is just sticking is what I'm thinking they're attacked all right it's a it's a tough decision but it if you don't use your remote start that often I would say probably you know it may be time to completely get it out of there if you do and you can live with this it's always winter times over and try to get the good use out of it if you go to use it for winter time and I understand that yep yep and that's why I got a for all right sounds good job thanks a lot bye bye and as we always do in our show we always have helpful people would give us a hand one of them is Derren from sharing cross your we talk about down a lot as well some of the other guys that own the shops in the area and Darren text me about the equal knocks the gentleman called about turns out that they are having a ring problem and not just a valve seal problem so the products we're talking that could possibly help but what Darren is recommending recommending the customer with equal knocks to go to GM again what's called will consumption test that's what they'll do is they'll check Phil do they will change give the warp topped off properly and then have him bring the vehicle back every thousand miles usually to see if there's any loss of war our according to their and repairing some of these vehicles under a good will warranty because they had this problem so it may not have any factor on the miles in this particular case so definitely get a hold of GM started will consumption test first approved to see if there is a problem and if there is hopefully GM will take care of that under warranty all right let's go to coral no by the way thank you dear all and we'll go to coral in Maryland line Hey Mister Carl how you doing why are you doing I'm doing great

"And now he's in terrible pain is on pain. Other narcotics is on medicines. To stop the cancer is getting worse and worse and worse and his doctors tying while. They'll be okay what he's not. Okay. I saw him this week. I saw on Tuesday. And I told him that he's got this terrible cancer in the bones of eating through the bones. The reason to be treated as to try to kill the cancer in the bones and take away the pain. The current strategy is not working at all the surgery, add an work. The robotic surgery had at work left him impotent incontinent and left him with metastatic cancer at age forty nine. He came to me. And why should he come to me? Well, if you come to me because he's in. Pain. He's suffering the cancers growing through the bones. And if you only knew the data he thought that he could trust the surgeon the robotic surgeon on fortunate if you look at the data with the best surgeon in America, we have the day that here in our book that already to you. So he had a PSA fourteen is chance of being successfully treated is only thirty percent with open or robotic surgery. Well, he had recurrence of the cancer nearly immediately which means there's no chance of cure with robotic surgery and who left input an incontinent and the cancer spread. And well all the day this year, you can see after surgery robotic surgery, the likelihood of sexual damage is ninety seven percent likely of urinary damages. I do six percent. He's had at all. So why come to us while you can see the data? I at a patient with similar circumstances. He came to me, and I shot him other day too. I showed him how he would be better served more likely to be cancer. Free. If he came to us, and you can see the data it's right here for Gleason, fate prostate cancer page eleven of our booklet figure seventeen you can see that were two and a half times more likely about one hundred fifty percent more likely to be cancer free than AVI had opened a robotic surgery. So the lesson is it's better to learn. I teach in time saves nine he should've taken time out not necessarily believe the surgeon. He should've taken time out. Learn the options rather than getting cut so fast. I know that sometimes the surgeon is pushing surgery while the doctor shouldn't be pushing anything the doctors should be advising educating. And then the patient should make the decisions round say, oh, you need surgery surgeries of option. Look at the day, then you'll see surgeries Alousious option for prostate cancer. That's why so many men have side effects and also. Unfortunately, many men are so proud that don't wanna talk about their side effects or shamed. Other side effects, and so other men don't necessarily learn the facts before something terrible happens to them. So why do we have this show while the show to learn to educate together to understand that just because you have cancer doesn't mean it has to be cut and cutting the cancer cutting the nerves open the body often is associated with spread of the cancer and all the complications of that surgery. So learn once and save a million times, and I can tell you that these tear phonies, sad that he's lost his friends because I don't understand how a fifty two year old men would feel in his predicament. He sat about that. He sat about his health. And finally, he came to us to get better. And that's the work that we do here at radio to New York. And of course, we wish she came to us first or at least. He learned all the options. I before he make a decision that way doesn't have to regret. I'll talk about a woman spry woman who's about eight years old. She had breast cancer she had her breasts removed. She thought she was going to remove her breasts and remove or troubles and far from it. Guess where the major number one site of breast cancer is where does the press cancer come when the breast is removed. The number one site is the same site, and this woman cheddar brass removed thinking that was going to buy or some good and the cancer just came rip roaring back shed mess Tacamiche had British in. And then she came to me with a massive malodorous bleeding pus ridden mass of cancer size of a fist. This a slender woman should probably one hundred ten pounds and a mass on her chest while right where the breast used to be like a big pile of hamburger bleeding in.

That's I'm getting old now. That's what scares me was on all the shows. Frank Sinatra just write it down and sometime go down Sherman, and he had a had saw one hit song on the charts. Comey sixty two sixty three right around when the Beatles were coming out. It was called. Hello mata. Hello Fata that was Ellen Sherman. Who did that? I know that song. Okay. That was Allan Sherman Perry. That's just the funny song. Well, he may. Okay. I'm already a funny.

Follow was about being a camp. Right. Yes. Exactly. But he also he did so many records. He was on that. But yeah, he would take a famous melody, I guess you'd say, okay. Even the classics.

That's pretty beautiful. Did you know he could say? No. We we sent him the song. Probably a month or two before we started shooting. Listen it said. So take a crack this Brennan sent it back and we thought oh beautiful. That's the original. Well, I don't know about the original. These are these are black folk songs that ballad goes way back. That's an early version of that song about a man who is. Well, it's about a man whose lover gives them venereal disease. And he does it. The use of the word disordered so interesting in it. What does she say? She disordered. My body told me before she disordered me. Yeah. That's I might have got pills salts or pills of weight. Mercury. Right. I didn't realize it was about syphilis or some. Was trying to figure out what the white mercury pills were about. Like, those are not pills. We take anymore. Otherwise for treating syphilis. Yeah. So, you know, and you you book on the home movie with an instrumental version of the streets of Laredo. So it is one of the classic death songs about the old west is that why you chose it. Because they're. Josh death in the movie. Yeah. It's a beautiful elegiac song about death and familiar to almost everyone. At least the melody is. But it was interesting to us too. Have it makes its appearance in the movie, at least when you hear the song with lyrics that people weren't familiar with. And there probably were more appropriate to the period. Okay. Stupid question. Did you ever hear the Allan Sherman parody version of streets of Laredo, of course, called streets of Miami? That's really horrible. We're really big on. Yes. He was absolute giant. Do you? Remember the lyrics? I don't remember the streets Miami. Now, not really the fountain blue. He's the founder blue hotel. He's taking a trip with his instead of his like a side kick or something that says life partners Sammy it has the line and pay to the firm sixty dollars a day. I no no charge to the firm sixty dollars because he's expensing the trip. So another story I want to talk about from your film takes place on a wagon train. And that's another trope of westerns. Why did you want to do a wagon train story? I think it really was sort of it at a certain point rummaging around in the western genre thinking, well, we haven't, you know, in thinking about this sort of sub genres, well, we haven't done a wagon train movie or we haven't done a stagecoach movie that might be interesting. So we came up with that. I have to say that it might have been a good idea on paper. But when we discovered when we went out to shoot, this wagon train movie and most of it was shot over about a month in western Nebraska. We realized it was just an incredible pain. Well, sure because you have like nearly looks like a mile of wagons with people walking alongside of them. And there's like there's horses and oxen that's like oh. And the problem is that you have essentially sort of a half a mile long chain of wagons and the cameras in a certain position. And when you say action. The first wagon moves in ten minutes later, the last wagon can start moving and you finally got everything going together. And then one oxen team will decide to cut sharply over to the right and ruined the shot. So you then have a choice, which is to reposition all the wagons back where they were in relationship to the camera position, which will take an hour or so or move the camera back in reposition the wagons. But in a nut as beautiful camera position for the shot. And this was you know, over and over and over. Well, I remember after we talked about your movie inside and Davis where there was a cat. Who is a co star of the film, you said you would never work with a cat again. And so now you've put yourself in the position with this film of working with like oxen and horses a dog. There's an. But it seems to me like you set yourself up for travel. Yes, we did have you forgotten. How hard it was just to work with a cat. The problem is when you're writing it. It's so easy to write sages go. Okay. Yeah. Wagon train? Yeah. There are twenty wagons. It's easy to write. How many Rattlers did you have working on this many? I don't even a very in. The Nebraska thing there were Wrangler is for every every team and every few horses. But they're great. But the animals are sadly, they're just animals they sometimes they play ball. And sometimes they don't what did the Wrangler. The action Wrangler great guy, but I. So I asked him if the accident could I don't know what it was come to a Mark and stop or something unique something that seemed kind of simple to me, and he rolled his eyes with a kind of silent idiot, look, and he said, you know. Driving accidents that is self evident as people think it is. I thought man. Why should that be different than anything else on a movie? Our oxen responsive. I mean, I've never worked with an ox. Exactly, there's a considerable or specific lag time. When you, you know, use the little prod or give it a little flick. It's an it's rump with you know, whatever they drive them with and when the accident actually decides to attend to your wishes, they got a hell of a neural network.

These are these are black folk songs are that valid goes way back. That's an early version of that song about a man who is. Well, it's about a man whose lover gives them a venereal disease.

Because there is in the movie. Yeah, it's a beautiful elegiac song about death and familiar to almost everyone at least the melody is. But it was interesting to us too. You know, have it makes its appearance in the movie, at least when you hear the song with lyrics that people weren't familiar with. And there probably were more appropriate to the period. Okay. Stupid question. Did you ever hear the Allan Sherman parody version of streets? Laredo, of course in costumes have Miami. That's really horrible. Really, we're really big on Ellen. Yes. He was absolute giant. Do you? Remember the lyrics? Remember the streets. Miami, very, no, not really. The fountain blue he's the fountain blue hotel.

"That he did everything humanly possible to bring these people to the table to negotiate. He offered their plan. They said no just because the team voted for in the parents, they're the ones being unreasonable. Well, of course there. Of course, they're being unreasonable. And I I see where you're coming from that it's showing the entire country that they're being unreasonable, but on this shutdown the perception is even amongst the president's most ardent supporters is that he backed down now whether that was a strategic retreat. Doesn't matter. He lost this battle now. Winning the war is imperative great column by the New York Post, Michael Goodwin. Who has been a big Trump supporter? He says look. Yes. The president back down don't count him out just yet. Because even though as the media has been telling us he's met his match in Nancy Pelosi. He does still have weapons at his disposal. Now, the national emergency is one that people are pooh-poohing because oh it'll be held up in the court. So it'll be held up in the courts. So what if you want that objective to be realized sometimes you have to wait for it? Sometimes you have to wait for it to make its way through the courts. And yes, obviously, the Democrats would get a sympathetic district judge. Yes, obviously, there would be a similarly sympathetic ruling in the ninth circuit court of appeals. But this is obviously an idea that would need to go to the supreme court. And is this not the reason that one of the biggest Trump victory says, Ben? Getting two justices on the supreme court, supposedly reliable conservative votes. Who would interpret the president's national emergency powers to be brought enough to say, yes when we have excuse me. And when we have thousands of people hoarding at our southern border just just attempting to get in by the hundreds of thousands. Yes. This is an emergency. Yes. This is something that much like you have illegal immigration costing this country what eight billion dollars per year. I believe that number is is low. I thought it was eighty billion eighty six billion that was it was like eight billion dollars just for Texas. This is about as close to the dictionary definition of an emergency. As a gets moreover as I interpret the president's powers on immigration. They are broad now. The question here is whether he has the authority to essentially reallocate congressional funds for quote unquote, border security to build a wall that congress didn't specifically authorize. That's what's going to reach the supreme court. But when it comes to the issue of immigration, the president can snap his fingers and close the borders unilaterally. He doesn't need congressional consent. This is what the so-called Trump travel ban rulings have all shown they've all demonstrated that when you get a definitive ruling on this. The powers of the presidency are pretty darn clear. Allan Sherman park you're on the Donald shell. Hey, dan. So many things to say on this wall. But I think the president cook a reprieve to regroup because you know, what? Sometimes what you do in a cut of war. You just let the rope. Go right. But what I think he needs to do is keep pushing Nancy and the Democrats further and further to an untenable position where they just simply don't want to close any loopholes at the border to explain how these drones are supposed to work. What are they gonna do trap munitions on people because the way our border security is run right now, we have people trying to find people after they've entered the country, right? And then run around and chase them and drag them out. That's where we stand right now. Drones aren't going to be any different radars not going to be any different. Because even as you get notified that these people are coming because you still have to run down try to find where they're hiding and dragged them out across the border. That's where we are one of the things we can do to pay for this wall is to tax all those wire. At looks like we lost you in the snowstorm. That's okay. Dropped off yet. We can tax all of the wired transferred money back to Mexico. The so-called repatriation, I believe Jim Sensenbrenner was a Grossman had the idea of seizing drug money. Now, a Sensenbrenner Bill. Grossman is basically said the same growth men's idea was the go fund me, but Sensenbrenner had I think the best idea which was just seizing the taken assets from El Chapo and the other drug cartels and using that to to fund a border wall. I mean, it it is obvious that the wall is affected. It is obvious that we need something to at least slow people down so our drone technology. Our motion sensing camera technology gives the border patrol agents time enough to get to these people if you just have drones a quote unquote virtual wall, but there's no physical barrier. Someone is passed long before the border patrol agents in a pickup truck or Jeep are able to get out there and round up the people crossing the border and this idea that oh, well, they'll just try again or they'll tunnel under. They'll do you have to make it difficult to enter if this if this were to dissuade that the idea that people would tunnel under that prison that Andy do Frayne escaped out of Shawshank wouldn't have had walls around it to begin with Mike in west Allis. You're on the Dan O'Donnell show. Good morning. Then let's make a worst case scenario. I'm assuming that Pelosi and the crowd is gonna do absolutely nothing to try to cooperate through the negotiate. So let's say Donald puts in his plan is his constitutional right to build the wall by whatever means, that's you know, as you just so well said, some low level judge is gonna be mealy slap it injunction on it could take months and months and months get scream court. But the end game the end point. I know what you're up on your history. You remember one time? I forget the exact case, but the court ruled one way and Andrew Jackson's administration and Jackson said all right fine. The court has made its ruling now let them that was a very famous a very famous quote. Yes. President Obama essentially did this to the last thing I think President Trump would be able to afford at least heading into an election year would be this notion of. Constitutional crisis where he's just not going to enforce a court order, and this is primarily because the media would just be all over him. The media would oh excuse me, the equally as bad. It's twenty twenty rolls around and President Trump has believable accomplish. Absolutely nothing. Toys this wall. That'll be the campaign issue there. Thing. And it might as well as people devoting dozen, damned if he doesn't well, it's not that they're going to vote against them there. It's not that he's going to to lose supporters to Kamala Harris, or whomever, the democratic candidate is it's that his base isn't going to show up that his base is going to abandon him. This was all this was the the thinking on the Donald Trump voter that they were either a disaffected democrat they were someone who typically didn't get involved in the political process, but Donald Trump. Unlike anybody else who has ever run for the presidency was able to speak to them. They were blue collar typically older voters who maybe had not voted in a while they were younger millennials as Hillary called them, the deplorables who are racists, and sexists and bigots and homophobes, and they just can't stand all of these minorities coming into the country, Tom Brokaw, even said that Tom Brokaw on meet the press yesterday. If. If you wanna know, if you wanna know what what the media really thinks about you. Listen to Tom Brokaw and a lot of this. We don't want to talk about the fact is on the Republican side. A lot of people see the rise swore Mary important who consensual here in American politics Hispanics, who will come here and all be Democrats. Also, I hear when I push people. I don't know whether I want Brown grandbabies. I mean, that's also a part of it is the intermarriage that is going on the cultures that are conflicting which other now Brokaw is getting all sorts of feedback for this old Tom can't figure out why people are so mad at him. And quite frankly, I can't either it's pretty obvious. He was talking about racist Republicans. And I thought that was okay. When you say Republicans don't want Brown grandbabies that Republicans hate anyone whose skin color isn't exactly like there's been no Brokaw is east taking a whole lot of heat for this. He's had to apologize. And now he's taking heat for. The apology, but this just sort of echoes what the more and more mainstream American laughed says about its political opponents, Dan savage. Do you know who he is? He is the sex advice columnist. He writes, a column called savage love, it used appear in the the old print edition of the onion. It's syndicated. It's on the onion sister site the club. And he is one of these guys who just campaigns against bullying. He is. He is just a guy who can't tolerate anyone bullying anyone else. He's about the most toxic awful bully. You've ever heard. This is what he honest to God thinks he was on Bill Maher's show on Friday. This is what he thinks about quite frankly, you demagoguery racism good at stoking all every everybody's like, oh, it's economic anxiety. Oh, it's the working class.

"Yeah, I'm living with it. Yes. Unbelievable. It really really. So when did you get your first break, what was your first break? Well, I real brick probably was getting on the doctor demento show 'cause I was just a teenager of the fourteen fifteen years old, and I sent him tapes in the mail just little cassette tapes of stuff recorded literally in my bedroom with an accordion, right horrible songs and terribly recorded. But he thought that they were quirky enough or novel enough to to give airtime to so he played him on the radio and encouraged me to send more. So the doctor demento show got started. That's amazing. And he's still he's not he's not on terrestrial radio anymore. But he still does a a weekly show online undocumented. I so who's your greatest musical influences. People that I heard on the demento show people, you know, from the forties and fifties and sixties like spike Jones and Allan Sherman. Tom lehrer? Stan Freberg people like that Sherman. Yeah. Hello phone. Yeah. I used to have Allan Sherman records. Sure. Big old, huge vinyl records that enormous. Right. I just I I always enjoy listening to his music, and and and listening to all of his comedic takes on things too. So that's that's how you begin with for a brief time. He was huge on Allan Sherman had two number one albums within like an eighteen. No, I I think three number one L eighteen month period of time. I mean, he was unbelievably big like around sixty sixty two so which Mitch musician out, we'd all an cure and the rich Eisen show, which musician that you sent up in song was the most appreciative in which one was maybe the least. Well, I mean, I I wouldn't say that anybody was not appreciative. Because I get permission ahead of time. It's not like a big surprise when I'm doing the parody. You got Michael Jackson's. You do that. Well, you know, I didn't know Michael Jackson. But in contact them the way that you do I went through my manager. And he contacted a Michael Jackson manager publicist or answer. I don't know how it works. But it got the Michael and he signed off on it. And he actually had a great sense of humor about it. And there is in fact, a contract that Michael Jackson signed that that says that he is the coal writer of eat it. He coasts. So did somebody have to play. Hey, Michael, sit down. There's a guy named we're now yankovic and he's come up with a song called eat it and somebody pressed play for him. And he sat there and listened to. I I didn't record it before. I probably I don't even know if I'd I'd probably written the lyrics at that point. Okay. But no, we we don't record unless we have permission little wise a lot of effort money wasted. Okay. And that's the way you actually got permission through my did you ever meet, Michael? I did a couple of times us great. I mean at one time I actually gave him a gold album because my album even worse, which was based on his how bad. When gold so I gave him a gold album for that. And he was very gracious another goal for the pile this over here. I mean, he's a coal rider. You'd at least you should be able to do is get them back. Collaborator. You know? Fantastic. And you got a so nobody's been unappreciative. Right. I mean, I mean, everybody's had a really great sense of humor about. Okay. That's great. And you got a star on the Hollywood walk of fame. Is it true that you request your star be near two of your most favorite music icon, ROY Clark, and Barry white is that a true story. Sure that I've said that and I. And I do like Ray Clark in berry white, but it was just kind of goofed because it just happened to be. That's actually, yes. Yes. That's not too bad. And I like to think that it was Qismat was synchronicity that it was meant to be. Did you ever do? Barry white song. Did you ever do? No. But you know, the day is.

"Because it also has the most amazing world class musicians playing this kind of Arabic tinged music, and you're you're watching them connect 'cause they do a lot of improv improving within songs. So I think it's a really unique experience and every time I see it. I'm sort of pleased. Good less. I that's nice to hear got a flashback because I mean, I didn't own that many comedy albums, but I've heard billions of them and with comedy albums and also music. I remember like you play a record. And you'd hold the Recco cover tactile Shula listening to the and you would like looking at the pictures and the words on it. I used to go to Lincoln center library because it wasn't there wasn't items. You know, I'd go to Lincoln center library from a pretty young age. Wjr. And you could take ten albums and stack them up sit down at a little kiosk with really greasy headphones because everyone used the same FM and listen to anything you want and a big part of that was that feeling of. That feeling of slipping it out flipping and then slipping it out of the dust cover holding it a certain way, you know, and that and then looking at the looking at this that you could read the type because it was big on the big album cover, and then sometimes gently reaching for the handle with the needle is and putting to hear this. Yeah. Yeah. And we were the in the eighteen hundreds now say those feeling yeah. That feeling of that like feather light little touch of the of the tone arm, and you have to just carefully and then that. When you put it down. Yeah. I'm old enough to remember when you go into a record store like record world, and they would they would let you hear the single before you bought it. I don't remember that in the sixties wasn't that long ago. Those little plastic swastikas could single. Who knew that's was. That's why we have so much right wing violence now because that was all that was a simple little talking about so many things like that on the show, you know, this show, and we're you know, we're drenched into stallion. He's talking about how you would you know, we're talking about the end of those the death of those record stores albums. But also that Gilbert what Gilbert talked about before we're top forty you could hear Allan Sherman and and Doris day. And you know, and the beach boys and era song from show or. Musical on the charts at the same time. People say education often, you'll get everyone get every composer guest this some critic or some personal say I went out. And I I I wasn't whistling any of the songs, you know, going out and think it was psycho man said, you know, what it's not that people. It's not that shows were so great in the old days that they left the show whistling the songs they they walked in whistling the songs because a lot of already on the hit parade or already on the radio. So it's almost like psyching yourself up for a rock concert by listening to the band's. That's that gives you a that gives you a lot of wind at your back. If you're a composer of musical if people are coming in, and they know two or three of the songs, it's alright. How do you sit down to tackle something like writing theme song for where in the world is Carmen sandiego, which is God damn catchy? Also stayed with me all these years. Well, that's like I've done a lot of jingles like in the past. And that is almost like a jingle. And part of it is just just. Trying to come up with something very quickly. You know, 'cause it's about like a little hook or something. Like that. In this case.
