making any announcements well if the every fifteen years off we've held off as long as we can but now we're going to I guess we're gonna have to but I said you know so piece of people are trying to make the best of of all of this of the pandemic I see that the Miami dolphins are gonna have turned to their stadium into a drive in movie theater there by making it useful for something because it'll certainly was not useful for playing football in because they couldn't do it well meanwhile on the other side of the country the Dodgers the stadium in the parking lot the mayor of Los Angeles is arranged for everyone in Las every LA city residents to be tested for free and they've got him all lined up and did the Dodgers parking lot drive up kind of a situation nice now hi David yeah I don't know what you have to sit in your car for too long though I don't yeah that would be and I'm not you know what I don't have to do that everything takes longer now it just it just does everything you have to wait for there's no quick way to do anything now so I mean I was having dinner I'm even having to wait I don't know I'm not going to do that I was gonna make it a bodily function jokes and I'm just not going to do it I thought better of it I'm glad you stopped yourself but in a way did he stop himself so when he does hi I had to make the joke without Makin which I which I if I admire and look at the same time thank you well and and you talk about stoppage that's where I was going everything takes longer but de what what's going on I don't know if it's like one day is now starting to really really just blend into the other I don't think mine will do that until the kids are out of school officially because we still have meetings they have to do and I think as soon as they're done with school that's when my days are going all seem the same I think it was the day off through through your own timing a bit yeah because you see I I woke up yesterday morning going what days and what day is it really that's what did it right and like today I am fully loaded I mean we've got we got a meeting a meeting right after the show offers all the show goes to eleven now that working at home now we have a meeting right after the show I got a glowing going to quickly run my dog to the groomer and we had another meeting and I come back here for and then I got to go to Costco in the liquor store today you're going to school today I know right exciting we just slightly panicked about paper towels just slightly past well a paper towel plant a panic you know you forgot to throw in there right after the show we also have to do about fifteen minutes worth of work and then there's that yeah recording some stuff and then have our meeting which I hope is better than and then last week last week we tried to have our weekly meeting and there was a problem with the wifi I think in that at least two zero it was a it was a problem here but I'm pretty sure I'm pretty sure it's fixed it was the most frustrating it was the most frustrating of I mean the zoom meetings in the team's meetings and the whatever interface you're using they can be frustrating anyway but this one was just like most of the time zoom meetings are frustrating because somebody refuses to mute yeah well I cannot listen I had that I have but my literature class with the zoom meeting with that with the people in da club and Fiona the yeah yeah it's a book club board worst were reading that popular fiction bleak house by Charles Dickens so it's on a book club the book but at any rate one one guy I won't call him out although he doesn't listen to the show one guy he has his computer or whatever he's using on his chest kind of and he's leaning back in a chair so is facing but that he's continually going Jesus and I was trying to make a point finally I stopped on the side Liam I'd call him out Liam Liam Liam what what you have to mute your microphone please what and then yeah I've met everybody else went yeah Liam come on you got a mute your microphone poor Liam specially on the zoom views those because the way it works you can adjust to different ways but kind of the way I like it is that whoever's talking goes full screen yeah and then and then you can see people down on the side the but the but the but then if anybody makes a little noise drop something or or you don't bounces their coffee and something because full screen for a second you just need your damn Mike unless you're gonna talk and then then doesn't happen but they they don't remember so well I suppose we had officially begin the show we've not we've not been having really a glottal walk I don't I don't think with check ins late sure sure we have not in the not in the early morning part I but I think you

"Eighty wine. Bring a question so so something else happens in this decade and that is hip hop pop and that that changes everything. How does that happen? And what is driving that. It's been a change a long time in the making. I mean we. We discuss outcast and our first chapter. And we found this quotation from Andre Benjamin Benjamin who said he was very nervous to release that song. Because the idea of a singing rapper. Back in two thousand three was kind of petrifying for him if we fast forward hard to two thousand eighteen two thousand nineteen that fear. Would I think be out the window. I think the The merging of hip hop and song has become become a really a core part of the sound of Pop music. Thanks to artists like Kanye West and drake. We're talking with Charlie harding and nate. Sloan about their book switched on Pop. How Popular Music Works and why it matters? I'm GonNa play a song that you have a chapter about by Louise Fonzie featuring Daddy Yankee. A Desperate Sita Yarmuth they do question. The last time I looked it was just a couple of minutes ago. I think we're up to seventy five trillion of us. I don't know what the governor is. So what is behind a song like d'esposito there's so much to unpack in this modern masterpiece apiece. One is the son merges old new elements. You have this kind of classic traditional Puerto Rican Cuatro Guitar. But you also have these very modern programmed Graham drums. You have the characteristic reggae tone rhythm it marries the the kind of smooth. Romantic vocals of Louis Fonzie with the rat tat. Uh almost rap like delivery of Daddy Yankee. I think this is a song. No matter what you're looking for in a pop track this will have it for you and it's probably not that big a leap to Understand the popularity of d'esposito to go see a lot of people at the Rose Bowl who don't speak a word of Korean singing along with every every song that A. K.. Pop Ban bts will perform. They don't understand the words but it doesn't Matter.

"One of the fundamental properties of music beat rhythm this this song is is a great example of how there might be more than meets the ear with with pop songs I mean this is a sign that always gets people on the dance floor the card a Spotify is one of the top ten wedding songs of of all time and yet if you listen closely to the lyrics it is not a very happy song actually it's kind of a pessimistic song about how no relationship can really last and yet we don't seem to recognize that we just seem to want to get on the dance floor and shake our booties and Andre Benjamin kind of predicted that in the lyrics of the song he says yeah I don't want to hear me yeah I just want to dance so the song kind of reflects that in its rhythmic structure it doesn't use one of the standard meters and and meter is a term that refers to how many pulses are grouped together in the song right so in this song it starts with the four beat pulse or four beat meter you can hear that in that like the very beginning Andre three thousand counts of the sun goes one two three on and so he sort of establishes that for beat me to right there but then every time the the song comes around there's there's one section where he's strips to beats from that for B. meter goes one two three four one two one two three four and view when you're listening you might not even notice that there's this moment where the post kind of like shifts from four to two but maybe you feel that unconsciously and you it kind of reflects the discordant message of the song that even though the song is catchy there's something under the surface that's not quite right I'm Joshua Johnson and you're listening to one a one more song we definitely have to get to before our time is up because we it is Christmas time holiday time there's one particular song that seems to have constantly come up since nineteen ninety four and you know which one I'm talking about it is that perennial hits by Mariah Carey All I Want for Christmas is you by Mariah Carey I want to make sure that we made room for this one eight because Christmas music is definitely pop music in a way yeah this is like a textbook.

"On please your lasting good view virtues we gotta get you want to be never been around. Just turn it out. So are we still alive. I got was Brittany Spears with oops I did it again. We will rehearse. Is this again next time Dan. What is this song? Teachers need about pop music. There's so much in here. We could talk about vocal Timbre Brittany Spears. How she sort sort of alternates between Sort of naive wonder in the chorus and knowing sophistication in the verse. We can talk about the chord progression. Here which is actually actually Called Lav Olea. It goes all the way back to the fifteen hundreds composers like your Friedrich Honda have used this chord progression. But I think one of my favorite things things about this track is something that the music theorists Meghan lab and good points out at the very end of this song. You get a collision of two different choruses. It's so sometimes in the song spear sings what we were just doing. oops I did it again. But then at one point she sings this other version of the chorus where the melody you slightly different and it has a pause. It's like oops I did it again. And so at the very end of the song they slammed those two cores or is it together and you hear like two versions of the chorus sounding at once in this contra mashups that is just so epic and exciting and by by the way do before we move on just for that term Contra Pencil. You're talking about different. Sounds that are played in counterpoint. With one another that locked together in a unique way right right to me. It's it's it's difficult thing in music. Because you have to write to melodies that will sound good on their own and then also worked together when they're played simultaneously painlessly so going back to the age of Bach. It's been like a great sort of technical challenge for composers to write counterpoint. Karen in Saint Louis emailed most pop. Even if it's about a break-up does something that connects us to it in a way. That feels personal. Even if the song is sad it makes us feel good. That's pop Karen Sharon. I think your comment definitely applies to a pop hit that definitely charts by storm. One of the biggest hits Alan. Take a thank you learn. Hey are by outkast nate. Wise this song significant you write in the book that it contains decades of rhythmic progress. What do you mean by that? Yeah I mean this. This is the actually the opening chapter of our book because we think the song is so icon and it's especially the way it deals with one of the fundamental properties of music. Beat eight rhythm This this song is is a great example of how there might be more than meets the ear with with pop songs. I mean this is a sign that always gets people on the dance DANCEFLOOR. According to spotify is one of the top ten wedding songs of all time and yet if you listen closely to the lyrics it is not a very happy song actually. It's kind of a pessimistic song. About how no relationship can really last And yet we don't seem to recognize that we just seem to want to get on the dancefloor and shake our booties and Andre. Benjamin kind of predicted that in the lyrics of the song he says. y'All don't WanNa hear me Y'all just WANNA dance So the song kind of reflects that in its rhythmic structure. It doesn't use one of the standard Meters and meter is a term that refers to How many pulses are grouped together in the song long bright so in this song it starts with a four beat pulse or for beat meter? You can hear that in the very beginning Andre. Three thousand counts off the sign. He goes one two three On and so he sort of establishes that four beat meteorite there but then every time The the song comes around. There's there's one section where he strips the two beats from that four beat meter essentially it goes one two three four one two one two three four. And when you're listening you might not even notice is that there's this moment where the pulse kind of shifts from four to two but maybe you feel that unconsciously and you it kind of reflects the discordant message of the song that even though the song is catchy. There's something under the surface. That's not quite right. One more song we definitely have to get to before our time is up because it is Christmas time holiday time time. There's one particular song that seems to have constantly come up since nineteen ninety four.

"And the three minutes of it is just able to hook you in and just like Rivet your attention. What is going on that? This song is so powerful that rules the the charge that so popular. What are the musical characteristics that go into it? Once we started brewing deeper and deeper into the compositional logic of the song I think by by the end we emerged as people to people who formerly me a jazz like classical snob Charlie more of a rock electronic music SNOB BOB on the other side of this experience we were like Whoa pop. Music has a lot of depth a lot of beauty a lot of artistry. It really wasn't ear opening moment for us. Do you think it was just that song in particular or was there something in the way we generally talk about pop. That was shifting at that moment in time. Because that's sort of a little a bit into the rise of optimism. It's a few years after that big essay in the New York Times magazine called the rap against rockets them that sort of suggested adjusted that may be music. Criticism had spent too much time lifting up rock music as the most important genre areas and that it had had ignored the artistic possibilities. Ladies of pop did that play any role in your thinking. Do you think even subliminally. Yeah absolutely I think there were two big trends that were happening at the start of our show. One was a larger larger focus on popular culture within cultural criticism at large but also the rise of explainer journalism and. I think that we were really sort of marrying being those two with the show with optimism. I think part of what we recognize in our former snobbery is it so often when we it derived a kind of music. Those arguments can be based off of known unknown diocese of gender or Sexuality Race Class and when we listened closer to pop music I think we saw the ways in which especially women are written out of getting credit or even being seen as musicians because so often while they're just the singers and when we look at someone like Carlson we see a great amount of autonomy expression. Unique unique ways of showing US emotional cues ways of expressing ourselves giving ourselves allowances to be able to have an extended Human experience but not really for the two of US I think the most important influence was just listening and I think that that is what the whole point of the book is about when we call the show switched on pop in the books. Which Don pop? It's about `bout really truly being switched on to listening to listen very deeply. I think that's where so much change has happened for our ears. I think for our listeners as well well There's so much you can mind from the music so tell us how the book will help us. Listen deeply become switched on to pop. How will it help us make sense? At the top of each chapter is designed to have two overlapping goals. One is to reveal the sort of inner musical. Go World of a well known song from the past twenty years from artists ranging from Andre Benjamin said and each chapter in doing doing so also introduces the reader to larger musical concept that they can then go and apply any listening experience whether it's in pop Bernie Genre of music so you'll learn about that particular song but also like an underlying musical idea involving rhythm harmony syncopation timbre etc close. So what are all of these building blocks that you're teaching us about in the book so the book is sort of in three remain sections we can think of it as the essential building blocks nature just mentioned a bunch of them to understand us a have to have a sense of rhythm we have to understand what his rhythm. How does it work a perfect song for exploring rhythm is outkast's Hey Ya.

I couldn't remember if it was two thousand or three thousand so whatever whatever you're fine Andre Benjamin but I do stuff like that all the time were and in turn will go home that's not right. but to his credit Anthony Hopkins I thought dean I thought I was watching you on the line on the big screen thank you captured my **** off you know who might play Wendy in a in a made for TV movie was that he felt thing at all now see the Rockies perfect great as when it would be good to be so good as you look good in anything that she has seen the movie joker has not come out yet so good but it's it's steeped in controversy out it is it's bringing back the the controversy regarding shootings of you know these loners who you know sit and fester and the way that they take out their frustration and anger and hostility this by going to get a gun and just you know shooting up innocent people would yeah I have not seen joker yet so but I'm I'm told that that's part of this story line that Joaquin Phoenix Phoenix her her plays a guy like that that goes out and just starts murdering innocent people because of his own inadequacies in people are concerned that this will bring you know the this might inspire people who have leanings that way who have you know the put the possibility of being that way is seeing it on the big screen inspire them to actually go and commit a heinous a crime in fact Joaquin Phoenix was doing an interview with UK newspaper yeah and of the interviewer asked Joaquin Phoenix if you have any concern that this might spark similar acts as a result of that I can't pull bucking Phoenix walked out of the interview her he was flustered he walked out of the interview it later came back and apologize to the journalist who was doing the interview but I can't believe that he never thought that that would come up the the that question will he said he never even consider that an option that what why would that be a thing if he's in a moving he's playing a guy why would that lead people to act violently the joker is not in a nice guy in other movies too right but did that this is particularly because this is twenty nineteen. this is after this is after church shootings in school shootings on all kinds of shootings where we know we learned that the profiles of the people who are doing the shootings are very similar to this particular character and to think that it's never going to come up I mean I'm I I guess I'm I guess I'm just the you know naive to think that somebody would go into an interview it's like with you know my interview with Mel Gibson yes in which she called me on air and a whole yes because I dared to ask him if he thought that the controversy that he had been through for about the previous three years of allegations of domestic violence and anti semitic behavior and all kinds of very well publicized a terrible behavior yeah this was the first movie that it come out since all then and these were the first round of interviews that he was doing and for him to not I I asked him if he thought that his fans would still accept him as they did before right fair question I could have easily made it a must much more salacious question than that but I I thought that that was a fair question and you know the result was in calling me in a hole and the the the fact of the matter is they really think that nobody was going to bring that up right it's too big to not bring up here you're you're not doing your job if you don't bring it out to you how do you how do you. you know how are you in a movie like joker or how are you an actor who has got all this terrible stuff in your personal past and you're sitting down to do an interview thinking that none of this is going to come up that you don't prepare in one sentence response doesn't have to be a big deal but you just you have something prepared so you don't have to walk out of an interview right or call the interview right eight right which is true by right no one knows exactly correct I'm not no it's today at all and just saying there was an awkward moment for us all but it gave us a highlight on the twenty fifth anniversary primetime. yes it sure did help do you think the fact they were remind me on this it was one of the Batman movies were you had that that Colorado shooting the movie theater was showing one of that name of Aurora Colorado so that adds in to the the background of all this to some extent as a part of what fueled all of this controversy because theaters in Aurora Colorado where where the shooting took place in front of the the Batman screening they said that they were not going to show this movie the there was a you know still too sensitive a sub of a subject for that community and they are working to show it Warner brothers Reno responded saying you know they're they're they're sorry to hear about their decision that the movie and no way condones violence Munim typical kind of corporate response but you know and and I'm not I'm not an advocate of it a censorship in movies right but the the fact of the matter is with where we are with random mass unexplainable shootings at St churches and schools in places where you would never expect anything like this happen before I think you do have to be careful the the other element is is that some of the parents of the victims of that particular shooting have come out to say that they're uncomfortable with the subject matter this film it's a P. R. nightmare for Warner brothers is no yeah I don't yeah of course it has of course it has some in this movie was trucking along and you know getting eight minutes standing ovations at every Film Festival where it was playing and now that you know this is this is somewhat that's been thrown on the movie and I think it's one that's going to stick around for awhile I don't know what the answer is that there's someone there you know there certainly are plenty of movies with you know crazy would sure crazy killers and yeah you know this involvements and you know the tons of plenty of plenty of of violent acts that I guess you could make the argument that if somebody was prone to become a murder that any number of movies might set them off like this. maybe this one is just ring a little too true of someone who is a loner who if you know feels like he's you know that's the societies have their their foot on its neck yeah in the way that he retaliates is with violence it's just one canning Lee truthfulness took place and rings very true to so many horrible tragic news stories with dean you can sing because I agree a hundred percent especially about the censorship everything but you can certainly see where a town most specifically the parents of victims would be so ultra sensitive to something like this I get that and maybe a from Warner brothers I say I so totally respect that we won't even push for we don't have to show it anywhere near the town of dynix income and it should be an individual decision whether or not a theater wants to run something because otherwise there are going to be movies coming out that portray something that could happen in actual life and then do we just not see them right yeah I I agree I mean it's it's a tough question to answer you know I I I think we need to be respectful of families who have lost absolutely especially young children I think that needs to be a priority more than he knows Warner brothers gonna make enough money yeah with this motion picture people want to see it they'll find a way to go and see if there's someone who's you know prone to violence I suppose they're gonna find a way to see the movie anyway especially you know it in a way all of this controversy I'm sure Warner brothers is also loving because it's got everybody talking about this movie and people are going to be curious now but you know what if you're not respectful to. people who have sitting in a church in worshipping in were gunned down by some you know a crazy person mad at the world or school children who were gunned down because somebody was mad at the world at the you know maybe you need to re evaluate your priorities of that that's the true dean Richards is our guest will talk about the new movies coming out this week and most notably Judy we're gonna tell you all about shooting next it's billion WGN.

We have this is astronaut play by Robert Pattinson alone on some space vessel with a baby. Oh, I read about this. Yeah. All right. And he's he's taking care of this child and doing in trying to keep the ship going and keep them alive and everything and you find out what was going on led to all this to be be that way, and which involved prison inmates and a crazy doctor played by Juliet Menashe and and the inmates including Andre Benjamin. And so stuff stuff going on. And but what's most interesting about it is this father daughter relationship? Okay. That that that that takes place, and it gets very surreal gets very strange back one. Oh, crazy. Especially character. So it's it's interesting, but it's definitely a trip. So three stars three stars for highlife little woods Littlewoods test, the Thomson and lily, James we liked tests. They play sisters who are living in a. North Dakota in oilrig country and Tessa is on parole. She was she got caught trying to smuggle in from Canada. Salvage for her ailing mother, which oxycodones delta the owner makes money.

Drug dealer could risk parole had risk new job opportunity anchor rest getting killed by the resident in charge drug dealer who doesn't want anybody to doing the old stuff drug dealer could risk parole had risk new job opportunity anchor getting killed by the. The resident in charge drug dealer who doesn't want anybody muscle on his turf, right? So quite so bad options all around, and and that's what makes this movie. So fascinating. Because you be you're looking at the way poverty, basically cuts off any other viable options in people's lives and the details of greatest new filmmaker need cost. She's great test is great low. James great. It's it's really worth checking out. It's is a very Sundance if sort of wasn't at Sundance. But it was it feels that way. It was all by their laps.

"It's five fourteen as you probably know having a hard time finding someone to host the Oscars year. Kevin Hart said, no, thanks. You've moved on can't find anybody else. Don't know what to do. That's not the only problematic area as a Super Bowl or maroon five is to play halftime at the Super Bowl. They're supposed to have a side act with them on stage. And nobody wants to do it. So the question is who will perform with them they've approached several stars. But can't get anyone to say. Yes. An insider tells variety nobody wants to be associated with it. I don't know why the Super Bowl halftime show. They've approached Cardi B Andre Benjamin Mary J Blige. Usher, Lauren hill. They were all in the mix. None have confirmed. Some say the fact that it's a free gig doesn't help you get so much publicity out of that. But the NFL could fork up what ten grand or something they said, maybe there just won't be a halftime show and everybody can do an extended take when the go to the bathroom like we're used to doing. We'll see what happens and then thousands are urging maroon five not to do the show. I don't know. What's the anti NFL thing? Brian. Is it back to the Colin Kaepernick stuff? I don't know probably.

We're FC Cincinnati. They break ground for their stadium in the West End today at four o'clock is the official time for the groundbreaking. They're inviting people to come join them. In fact, they're giving away two thousand commemorative shovels anyone who shows up today. Asking them to help them participate in turning the ground that will become the new Major League Soccer stadium in the neighborhood replacing start stadium high school stadium right there behind Taft today. Gates to start the stadium open three o'clock looks like the weather or cooperate. This is fourteenth and central in the West End, they are asking people who come be good neighbors with the people on the West End and not park on the street, this I guess just kind of a harbinger of what's to come down the road. But they're asking anybody who's coming today groundbreaking two parking garages nearby. Whether it be over by music hall. In Washington park, or even a couple of blocks further north and use some of the over the Rhine garages that belong to the Kelly instead of parking on the street. So that they don't cause a disturbance for the people in the neighborhood. I see that not happening. Being a problem way down the road. If you're interested in going and wondering where these garages are we've got a map in story up at seven back.

That said I mean, height wise, I guess to get the extra seats that they're going to need. It's going to go up over one hundred feet tall. So I mean, it won't be as tall as Paul Brown stadium. But it's gonna come pretty close in on that site might look a little strange. Well shows the word Cincinnati on the top where you're gonna read that from. Hundred feet in the air was mega you have to be several blocks away right on something very tall. Maybe clifton. From the top of the hill. You can read the words Cincinnati. I mean, there's a lot of work to do the March twenty twenty one is when it's supposed to open, but there's a lot of getting through the city planning commission, getting approval from council for zoning changes. And they haven't resolve the parking garage where there's a lot of issues to be settled over the next year to make this happen. And then ticket prices, which they are up, but not a jump like some be some people. Remember, they're going there, so planet Nipper. In two years when they go on to the new stadium.
