New Music Friday: April 3

"Right now every household in the country is being asked to fill out the. Us Census is the form that helps us determine how voting districts are redrawn where to build public schools and hospitals how to spend federal money. So why are some people afraid to fill it out? We're getting into all that this week on. Npr's which podcast happy Friday everyone from NPR music and all songs considered. I'm Robyn Hilton. I'm here with an powers. Am Hey Robin and Stephen Thompson. Hello Robert It's new music Friday and we're looking at the best albums out on April third including new ones from thunder cats and Sam Hunt. But we're going to start with the latest from m ward is called migration stories are search a dream I saw one strive to anywhere the sun strikes anywhere this feed on a stream. The most off road on Salem's this is an award. The album is migration stories. In the song we're listening to is called unreal city in mortars Matt Word. I know we've all loved his work for about twenty years now which is hard to believe but this is his tenth Solo Album. And it's kind of a concept record that as the title says is Steven full of stories. All about human migration. Yeah it was inspired a bit by his own grandfather's journey from Mexico to the US in the nineteen twenties. And you know if you've followed an ward's career over time you know he's gone through a lot of different phases and there are a lot of different sides to a sound you know. He made six albums with with Zoe national and she and him. He was in monsters and folk. You know ten records. They've exported a lot of different sounds. This is an album of dusky. Musings if you know it's it's Dusky musings side of more that I find really warm and really comforting. There's a dreamy peaceful quality to these recordings that I found really comforting at this moment in history. You know this record made me think of a classic of American music. The wonderful songwriter. Hoagy Carmichael You know what I mean. Yeah conjured stardust for me in general. I think I'm more always been great at at tapping into vintage sounds in a way. That feels totally of the now and very personal. You know that's such a great way of putting it. I like the idea of stardust because immortal. Done more straight up Volkan folk rock albums but the ones I like. Have this as you said? Dream Year feel. I always think of songs from another time like drifting in on crackling airwaves. I think migration stories kind of straddles. Both those Sonic Worlds. The he inhabits really nicely in word is the artist. The album is called migration story. Let's go next to the singer Ashley. Mcbride Ashley McBride has announced today called. Never will this scene then issue between me new rubble. Big It's kind of funny you `Cau- lab butcher sadly own. The this is Ashley. Mcbride the country singer Ashley McBride. Her album is called. Never will and this song is called Martha divine and Ashley. Mcbride is originally from Arkansas. We covered her last album. Girl going nowhere which was almost exactly two years ago. That was her major label debut. And now. She's back with this follow-up Ashley McBride is one of my favorite country characters who submerged in the past few years. She was a hardworking songwriter. In this town of Nashville for many years before she finally got a chance to make her solo album. But what's been wonderful to watch is who rise and her success in a moment when as we all know women country have had trouble getting on the radio and maybe you know trouble getting through to a mainstream audience Ashley. Mcbride has found that. Audience by relentlessly touring Being so relatable to country fans of all kinds you know she sings these songs that are classic but they're also rock and roll and you know they touch the heart of the heartland. She tells the story songs and on this album. She goes more rock and roll than she ever has before. And this record to me really kind of leans into almost more of a stadium. Rock style. these songs feel feel their pitched bigger and bigger that Martha Divine Song. That we heard is just this absolute anthem. I just will go wherever she takes me. I love this record. I just love the pictures. She Paints her words and stories are. They're just so plain spoken but really really vivid. I could just feel the world's that The people in these songs inhabit Ashley. Mcbride is the singer. Her new album is called. Never will let's go next to nom de open-eye nominee. Okinawa has a new one called Brat. it's not This morning you sir. This is nominee open. Nyah his new his called Brat. And the song we're listening to is called Salou and back for this when his host of Culture Cypher Radioed XP and end the podcast series ratchet. John Morrison John. Hey what's up? Rob Nandi overnight. He's he's so many things. He's a multi instrumentalist composer. A rapper So much more based out of Chicago this guy has so much creative energy bursting out him and I thought this one was pretty incredible. Yes I was not familiar with his prior work before this album Brat and this really caught me off guard in a way. He kinda alternates between this beautiful like sing song. He almost wrapping vocal style. And then he slides into this weird quirky like high pitched vocal inflection. A lot of the music itself. I would be easy to call it. Sean. Realis- or something like that but he's packing so many references in does like folk music here. There's modern trap elements electric elements to the production. Here does like some absurd rock elements thrown in. He's like packing in so much beyond genres really interested in project. Yeah nom de open. I had a song in twenty seventeen that I absolutely loved called. Don't turn me off. That's tapping into some of the sound with such a swirl of influences and creativity just all bursting out of out of every corner. He's actually rebranded himself for this record. Actually as just NUMB D. in all caps and and thematically. This album is kind of trying to touch on the difference between nominee obey the person and number D. The Star. So you have all these examinations of like the difference between the performer and the Self But just once again. He's just such a ball of ideas and energy. I just he's there's so much talent here. I just like record that surprises me with every new cut and this one does that. I'M GONNA come back to it in a few months. It's going to sound totally different than what it sounded like last week. My favorite song Might be the opener actually is called flowers to my demons. And it's just like this harrowing tune it. You know if you listen to at one way it could be about heartache or relationship but then you dig into the lyrics is really about him. Shaken off like all of these personal demons and this is just like a weird wonderful record in like the best way. Nom De Obama or just Nandi and that's spelled in in a M D Nandi. His new has called Brat and John. Let's do one more before we let you go. This is Wilma archer. The artist known as Wilma Archer. His New Annette today is called a western circular poison miserable annoying avoid the blues. Them boys them join taxpayers treatable forcing them to other wearing denim leans real dirty play goals enemies in the twos legacy with numbers of course to Libya sensory heartbeat streets. Damn just try an evening fee. Fam- drug out complete sham rebel while throughout the system. A big jam. Not My wants to watch us to the last pagan who asked me. If the blast for masks and put double overtime to the last sniff Wilma Archer newness called a western circular. And the song. We're listening to his last sniff. Features the rapper. Mfa doomed their Wilma. Archer is otherwise known as will archery's producer based out of London. He's had a number of other records out under under the name slime I guess he's now retired. That name. And this is debut as Wilma Archer and much like the last record. We heard from Nandi Obama at John. This is one that just kept surprising. Me Yes there's a lot of things happen in here. Musically like you said London based composer producer multi instrumentalist and sonically and stylistically it. Kinda straddles. This line between Jazz. And then this almost undefinable rich or eight soundtrack music. A lot of the music here. Put me in the mind of any. Oh Moriconi the Italian soundtrack composer this is just a beautifully composed arranged record and you can hear the care that archer put into composing and arranging this music. Yeah you can't really drop the needle anywhere on this one and and with the whole record sounds like so. We heard a bit of the song last sniff. I WANNA play a little bit of a an instrumental track called killing crab which has almost eleanor rigby like. Strings and Kind of the circus like rhythm to it. It's just I don't know it just really blew me away. John used the word ornate To describe this record kind of kept coming back to the word ornate what I have in my notes here is three different. Uses of the word cinematic There's such there's such a film like quality to these to these recordings and Robin you mentioned just being able to drop the needle anywhere on the record and not get a sense of what else is on it. I mean the guests we've talked about. I mean you have Ms Doom. Sam Herring from future. Islands also works with Sudan Archives I mean those are three very very different artists. All of whom fit really perfectly on this record th. This is a very kind of big swing as an album. Five years in the making and it really sounds like it and it's worth mentioning that those guests. They're not just dropping in these are people. He's worked with a lot so he it feels like real collaboration. Right Wilma Archer is the artist is noon is called Western circular. Thanks so much John.

Its New music Friday from NPR and all songs considered Em Robin Hilton. I'm here with an powers and Stephen Thompson and we're looking at the best albums out on April third. We start the second half of the show off with thunder cat in his latest. It's called it is what it is even say you. This is thunder pat. His new album is called. It is what it is in the song. We're listening to his fair chance. Thunder cat is Otherwise known as Stephen Bruner. He's a producer. A songwriter singer. Bassist fakty writes much of his music starting out on the based and he's from Los Angeles known apart for his collaborations with artists like Kamasi Washington and Kendrick Lamar. This fourth album under his own name and mandate is also seriously packed with features. Yeah Stephen Lee. Brunner has one of the best rolodexes in the business. He worked You mentioned Kendrick Lamar. He played unto pimp a butterfly. These played in everything from snoop Dogg's band to the band suicidal tendencies and he's very collaborative musician. He's actually played several tiny desk concerts at. Npr One that he headlined. He also played with Mac Miller for Mac Miller tiny desk concert. Shortly before Mac Miller died and on this record you know he produces it with his longtime creative partner. Flying Lotus and as you mentioned just many many many features their guests all over this record childish. Gambino Kamasi Washington Lobi tidal sign. You just have this big mash up of voices and ideas and a lot of different themes. I mentioned that he worked with Mac. Miller the song fair chance that we heard as a reflection on Mac Miller's life and death but elsewhere on the record. There's more of a sense of playfulness. There's a song called a dragon ball do rag. That's kind of addressing a thunder. Cats love of anime. So it's just a it's just a big mash up of ideas that's just really joyful. Thunder cat is sort of like okay if Kendra kissed John and Kumasi Paul. I think thunder cat is George and Ringo mixed together. You know 'cause he's very funny and as you said Stephen. There's a fantastic element to this. But there's also a really deep spirituality to what he does and a kind of cosmic element to what he does. And you know this album. It's really interesting. Mix Thunder cat. Is the artist. The album is it is what it is. Let's go next to something completely different. This is the artist clarice. Jensen Clarice Jensen has a new one. It's called the experience of repetition as death. This is Clarisse Jensen. Her album is the experience of repetition as death in the song. We're listening to is called data tonight. She's a cello from Brooklyn and this is one of only five cuts on the record. They're all pretty long so I want to jump ahead about five minutes into the Song Day. Tonight it's called five minutes in and and here this goes only And here's how the song sounds a little closer to the end. I don't know I was listening to this thinking. Maybe the week's most essential listening I for the places that you can go ahead and certainly the one you can cut carry with you in a way you know. It just capture a certain mood of our time's man. This was the record I have needed for my morning listening. I have gone back to this record several times clear. Jensen is just one of the best Goto cellists in the business. She has worked with people like the Max Richter Orchestras Stars of the LID. Yawn seed Johan Johannson. All these names that I go back to again and again for comfort and beauty in my music listening. She creates loops and drones with cello. Sounds to make this very enveloping sound. I just absolutely love getting lost in her music. I just absolutely offer. It has a physiological effect. I think you know the combination of the long low cello lines in the drones release slows down my heartbeat and allows me. I wouldn't call it music for relaxation because of course I mean it's there's a kind of ominous tone to it but it just physically allows me some breathing space. And that's what we need most of all right now clarice. Jensen is the artist. Her new album is called the experience of repetition as death. Let's go next to the singer. Anna Birch Annaborough has a new record out. Today it's called if you're dreaming a sound again This is Anna Bourcher. Newin is called. If you're dreaming. The song listening to right now is called can't sleep. I mentioned that we covered Ashley. Mcbride's major label debut on New Music. Friday almost exactly two years ago. The same is true with Anna Birch. Her debut full length dropped two years ago and she's back with this follow up. I just find everything about her music. So transfixed for voice the Jangling guitars at all. Has this really sweet? Sleepy Lazy Day. Feel to it that I really love. Yeah I love her first record. Is this cheerful very buoyant? Sweet pop music. This record is kind of the flip side of that. Sound a little bit. It feels more interior more template of inspired by feelings of rootlessness. The words that she used to describe her feelings going into this record were isolation weariness and longing which again you know perfect time and the field is records a little softer. A little jazzy are a little more melancholy. I think when you put these two records together and hit shuffle. You just get one of the best double albums around. I think she's Marvellous Robin. I agree with you Stephen. You mentioned themes of isolation and I know that we're reading a lot into the music. We hear writing the man that just the songs on this one We we played can't sleep. There's one called go it alone. There's another one called. Party's over the hidden bonus track. Wash your hands. It felt very much written for now. Anna birches the singer her newness called if you're dreaming and we've got one more album that we wanNA play for this week's new music Friday but there are a bunch of other notable albums out today that we need to mention starting with the band born Ruffians. Their new and is called juice. This is a Indie rock veteran banned from Ontario. This is their sixth full length albums. Just big euphoric bighorns on a couple of the cuts. A lot of lift to it juices the record from born Ruffians. The singer Ellis has a new one out today called born again. She's a singer also from Ontario. Really Beautiful Voice Bob. Boylan played winter for cuts on the show Back at the end of February and One more on mentioned a band called the lovely eggs they have a new one called. Im Moron This is a duo from northern England. They just make this really fun. Really ragged psych rock to treasures of Nashville Abigail. Washburne FE to string. Players will fe plays the Chinese sitter and Abigail of course is a bluegrass Banjo player. They come together for an incredible project. cross cultural projects their debut album. Another great guy from Nashville. Who I love one of the sweetest voices and most tender songwriters Caleb coddle released his album better. Hurry up. And finally let's bring on the email all-time low always loved them for their pop tunes and they've got a new one wakeup sunshine. That's the five I need right now. I A wonderful reissue of a little heard nineteen eighty two album from Nina Simone called fodder on my wings recorded when she was living alone in France. But it's full of this tone of liveliness and revelry That's got a few bonus tracks. It's really worth checking out. Singer-songwriter Logan Ledger recorded his new self. Titled Album with t-bone Burnett The Canadian. Electro pop duo. Purity ring is back with its first album in five years. That's called womb The PSYCHEDELIC Rock and pop artist. Eve Tumor Has a new album called heaven to a tortured? Mind the dream pop band peel. Dream magazine has an album called agitprop alternatives. That sounds just like college. Radio in one thousand nine hundred ninety three full of really dreamy shoe gazing music really worth checking out finally the DC electronic group Thievery Corporation. They have an album called symphonic. It is kind of an electro orchestral album recorded with Prague Film Harmonic Orchestra again. That's called symphonic all those many albums out now on April third along with this last one we wanna play it comes from the country singers Sam Hunt. It's called South side and the glass bad will operate. It's my first one a day to a car at the mall. I see your face in Perfume House only to come from Alma. You got a true God. I got up break my heart. This is Sam Hunt. The country singers. Sam Hunt is numerous called South side and the song we're listening to From it is called hard to forget country singer and down in your hometown of Nashville. And I know this is a big win in your world this week. Here's this young guy who is mixing hip hop elements are NBA elements with country and hard country in a real country. Seamlessly effortlessly somehow is evolving. Really interesting ways you know. He still is balancing his love of hip hop and rb with his dedication to traditional country. And there's a real ninety s country Kinda Randy Travis side to this record but there are still tracks that sound like they were influenced by genuine or somebody like that It's that mix and personally legally he's telling a story he's he's embodying a character possibly very much like himself who's quite imperfect you know. Struggles with drinking loses his girl all this classic country tropes but he brings a confessional element to that. I think is a little bit unusual in contemporary country. In general I think still to me the most artistically interesting Mayo mainstream country artists out there I again. I know we're we're reading a lot into everything right now but this was another record. I felt like written for the Times with songs. Called Downtown's dead drinking too much too much Not Nothing lasts forever But you know but much like the Ashley McBride Record I thought you know story songs about everyday life in rural America which You know having grown up in rural Kansas they were something very familiar and comforting in In these songs Sam Hunt is the artist his new and it's called southside and that'll do it for this week's new music Friday.

The great leap plays fundamental question for me is the question of whether or not you will choose. Choose to be a person makes movement and there's a basketball metaphor here in the a one whether you choose to be still and a pair of composers give a new series about Emily Dickinson at decidedly modern. Sound all back coming up on the frame Komo. KPC podcasts are supported by Warner brothers presenting the good liar. A suspense filled thriller about the secrets. Secrets people keep an allies.

In the vein vein of Hitchcock Thriller Imbued with Intrigue Danger and surprising twists on November fifteenth. Read between the lies. The good liar rated R. under seventeen not committed without apparent only in theaters November fifteenth. Welcome to the frame. I'm John Horn. The CMA awards are known as country. Music's biggest night at the third annual award show last evening the stated focus was celebrating legendary women in country music but for many fans of Country Countries Superstar Carrie Underwood who's also a long running host of the ceremony. The night was a bit of a letdown. Here's Nashville based NPR music critic. Ann Manpower's the status of women in country. Music is a hot topic in Nashville. These days and it has been since two thousand fifteen when Keith Hill who radio consultant made some comments since that gave rise to the phenomenon known as Tomato Gate or salad gate. He basically said that the reason that women were not often played on country radio. Oh is because they were the tomatoes in the salad of country music just there for an accent. Unfortunately the data backs up. What Hill was saying? It's shocking looking how little there played compared to men so there's been a grassroots movement activist groups like change. The conversation down here is it's a big one that have really fought back against this and women are organizing women artists organizing and one way that people respond to these kinds of challenges. Challenges is to mess with award shows. Because you know what John. It's easier to mess with an award show then to mess with the radio format. Sadly yeah I saw on the red carpet Jennifer nettles from the band Sugarland War Cape. That said play our expletive records. Did that message carry out into the show in terms of what people we're saying as they were picking up awards. Oh definitely a one. High Point was when Casey mass graves one for female artists of the year. She gave really heartfelt acceptance speech where she talked about. How female energy is important? Not just for country music but for the earth right now. It's kind of like Greta tune. Bergen Komo moments. But you know that vibe ran through the night in the way that the hosts spoke the evening was hosted by three women usually it's hosted by Carrie underwood and Brad Paisley. But instead of Brad we had to legends of Country Music Reba mcentire and Dolly Parton three women hosting the CMA's Ama's your lucky and definitely surfaced. When women won awards I I guess one or two of the dudes mentioned something to I think Dan Shea The duo who won I think they made a comment about how wonderful it was to see. So many women performing forming. Let's talk about some of the winners Johnathan cleaner was the first ever woman to win a CMO award for musician of the year. She's a fiddle player. She's known for playing with Blake. Shelton Shelton and how important was her win. In terms of that category today flinders win is so important. No matter how visible and audible stars stars like Marianne Morris and Casey must graves are what really is not changing or is changing far too slowly in country music and frankly likely throughout popular. Music is the makeup of the band's who support these artists. I WanNa ask you about another winner. Ashley McBride beat a a couple of guys to win the award for new artist of the year. She had a debut album that did really well called girl. Going nowhere Sir Bradley in Cranston Look Cane Fan Owning van I am so excited. That Ashley mcbryde one best artists. The thing about Ashley McBride is really powerful is that she appeals to the bread and butter country Fan She's not a Casey mass graves. Whose core audiences like? Cool millennials. Ashley McBride is out there. They're playing what I like to call flyover music music for the heartland and capturing the imaginations of that core country audience. I WanNa ask you about award that I think a lot of people thought a woman was going to win her name is Carrie underwood and it went to Garth Brooks again. Dan as entertainer of the year. It feels like he's one that I think pretty much every year since the Carter presidency but what was it about Carrie underwood. The people were surprised that she didn't take that trophy home. Wow John I have complicated feelings about this so Carrie underwood the most successful woman. Artists in the country format the highest charting most played women on radio. Put out a great album master cry pretty that pushed her in new directions. So so yeah. Everybody expected this to be her year with the theme of the whole award. Show being women in country and there's carry the whole time I mean it was. I was shocked. And when Kerry didn't take that award and I love Garth Brooks steeply. I truly do. I am a huge admirers. Him in every way I love his music I love his live shows rose. I think he's a mench but I just want to say to you. Garth you coulda done a macklemore. You could've done an Adele. When those pop artists one big awards that were expected to go to other performers in the case of macklemore Kendrick Lamar in the case of Adel beyond say they said something in their acceptance speech about that? Now garth did something interesting. He called out reba mcentire's performance that night she had performed her classic Song Fancy and he also called out Kelsey Ballerina younger women artists. Who's really strong and moving up in the country world and said? Hey y'all are great and y'all y'all deserve awards to but why he chose to not say. Hey Kerry could've been yours. I don't know there's probably politics I don't even understand their but I wanted that moment. Night and get it and powers is a critic and correspondent at NPR music. She joined us from Nashville. And thanks so much for coming back on the show. Thank Houston much. John is fun to talk about it. Having on the frame beatty Wong moves from actor to director for a new play about basketball and international politics ways in jail Welcome back to the frame. I'm John Horn. Orn has made his mark as an actor in various settings. He won a Tony Award for his performance in M. Butterfly on television with series. He's such as Mister robot in films that include Jurassic World but recently we took on the role of theater director for the great leap which is now at the Pasadena. playhouse the play written by Lauren. Ye is centered on a real life basketball game between the United States and China in Nineteen eighty-nine around the same time time as the TNN square protest that themes of the play basketball and China also have been very much in the news. You feel like you've kind of hit the Jackpot Jackpot because you are doing something that is on the forefront of people's minds the comparison of course between what's going on over there and the play itself is is is really real relegated to politics and basketball and China but those are three things that don't really use saying the same sense all the time so I don't know what I'm you know why I'm complaining and if you're pitching greatly to an audience member how would you describe what you want the play to do in terms of how they see the world or see themselves themselves in it. I'd say that I think the play at this time in our lives as an American really is there's a lot of political turmoil with our leaders and the the the kind of mess of the current administration and that frustration creates a question in our minds about what it is that is our own responsibility. What it it is that we choose to do? And whether we choose to step forward or not in the plays fundamental question for me is the question of whether or not you will choose to be a person who makes makes movement and there's a basketball metaphor here in there in the play or one whether you will choose to be still and that is a powerful question that you walk away from this display asking yourself witch character are you. Are you the one who moves. Are you the one who stands still and I have to say that we all in this audience thinks it is the person that moves always. We always think we are that person but when we really ask ourselves we have to ask wrestle. At what level are we really that person and to see two characters in great relief in the same play who are struggling with the issue she was that creates that question for us. So that's what I want them to walk away with asking themselves that question. What is it about San Francisco about these characters lives that you think is is so important to reflect in terms of the bay area and what that city is like and what these characters lives are like in that city? Well I think it's really wonderful. Full when a playwright uses a specific time or place and explores the universality of her characters through that specific time. Replace so when she describes these things struck a chord for us who know the place but it also strikes a chord because of its authenticity to anyone who doesn't know the place because as it turns turns out Lauren. Herself is from the bay area. And that's one of my touchstones with her is that we're San Francisco Chinese Americans and the San Francisco chinese-american vibes very prevalent travelling in this play. And so I feel a sense of kind of understanding her in that way and I love working on the play because of that I always have from the beginning as an actor actor but now as a director kind of trying to imbue in whatever way possible. My point of view as a person from San Francisco in Chinese American. That's one one of the more fun aspects of doing this particular directing job for me. We're talking with actor and director Beatty Wong. You played one of the main characters. Won- Chang who's the coach of the Beijing University team and two previous productions when you step out of Plano character and directing that character. What does that transformation like in terms? News of your perspective on the role and the overall production. This is super interesting. Because you know you you just. It's a completely different point review. You have a much more global view of the play the production and the other actors and so for me. My intimacy with the character plays a role in my relationship with the actor playing the role that I once played because I have a kind of shorthand with the part that allows rosemead kind of cut through some some things that I have to be very careful about cutting through because it actor should have his own process and find something out in his own time and in its on rhythm but sometimes I can have insight into a moment for example One of the things that actors do play like Lauren's which is written with a great great deal of humor is to try to find where the humor for that particular actor is but I can also say you know I I know per pack really honey careful that you don't say this is how I would've boy if someone's actually says those words which I think is something you'd see in a movie. There's something like that. That's just bristle at the idea of it. The Pasadena playhouse. Like a lot of big arts institutions in and around. La Has a core audience that core audience. Because I've been to a lot of plays they're older and it's white. This is a play about a Chinese American experience. So how do you make sure that you are authentic to a new audience. Audience Chinese Americans who are coming to the plows and also give what I'll call the older white audience a perspective into a story that they may not have access to any other way humanity. You know it's like it's like eliminating humanity for a person of any color or any age is undeniable and when you strike strike accord emotionally or with humor and Lauren does both of these inheriting very deftly. Then you can reach anybody. I will also say Lauren. kyw Is a bit bit of a kind of gateway playwright. She really can draw people into a seemingly specific storyline of location and culture churchgoer and open it up through like I said before humor emotion to make it seem completely universal. I mean universal is a kind of a buzz word that people like to use but it really is true that people can relate to the play because there is simply human beings and they have feelings and aspirations and dreams and and Disappointments just like the characters and displayed regardless of their race or their age. We're talking with actor and director. Beatty Wong Nina Jacobson. WHO's the producer of the movie? Crazy Rich Asians told me the story of shopping. That movie around was met with a lot of rejection and in not one but two instances was told by a potential attention. Funder does she have to be Asian. Yeah the movie got made but still there. was that resistance to this idea. That people wouldn't be interested or studios wouldn't want to finance a movie like that how have you seen the evolution of the willingness and TV and film. I think theaters a little bit ahead of Hollywood in some regards possibly to start challenging their own assumptions about what people will and will not show up. Yeah I love that story that you've told that I have heard before because you know I really wish she would out these people say their names heterogenous because that that's kind of shameful and couldn't be more ignorant and clearly as a result has been proven to be very out out of touch so she dodged a bullet with those people because they didn't understand the value of of what she had. You know as far as how things have evolved. I do see you know having been in business for many decades. Now I feel that the needle shifts and I feel a difference in myself and I'd the difference in my ease and interfacing with the industry and with my own career and yet I still feel the same frustrations partly because of conversations positions like this. So that stories like this that you've told and I'm encouraged at the same time to kind of continue to kind of push the envelope. I guess just because the encouragement is is is greater than it was when I was first starting out when I was first starting out. Encouragement did not manifest itself in multi millions of dollars in much smaller kind of achievement. That you would take delight in but now this is a real kind of formidable contribution that Asian Americans are making to the mainstream media in a way that we haven't been able to do so before so that's got to be encouraging and when you say there's a parallel development and opportunity in frustration with the way that stories about LGBTQ characters are told. Do they track each other as one ahead head of the other or are they all part of the same conversation. You're part of the same conversation. But they're very they had their unique traits and their unique differences and and as a person who is a member of both both of these communities. I feel similarities and the parallels in my life always as an actor I also feel the unique differences and you know the the one the thing that people often point out that I can't really hide my Asian nece my Asian. This is always here and I am if I want to hide my sexuality and some people believe that that creates a different dynamic in the media when it comes to any number of issues that arise as a result of being part of these these marginalized communities. They're just different nuances that that come into play because of that Fundmental difference we talked about crazy. Rich changes we didn't talk about another movie that I was a landmark and that is the farewell with Aquafina us. And you're doing something with aquafina coming up that I have shot. The first season about Phoenix show show called AQUAFINA. Is Nora from Queens. A really funny show for comedy Central Half Hour Comedy for Comedy Central and had the time of my life doing that. That is airing January and fairly exciting about that because she is a force of nature. She's really really having her moment and rightly so because not only because she extremely talented and and appealing to just mandy demographics of people but she is a very smart producer and a very smart generator of her own material and of her own community and and is very intentionally creating Kind of power situation. In which which women directors women artists there were women everywhere on the set in a way that was so incredibly refreshing. And you realize that it takes a person listen to actually make it happen at this stage of the conversation. Thanks so much for coming in. Thank you so much thanks. The song is the director of the great leap. It's at the Pasadena playhouse. Through December first up next on the frame the composers of the new apple. TV plus series about. Emily Dickenson give a modern spin to a classic story. I'm John Horn and this is the frame apple. TV plus recently launched with a slate of original TV shows including Dickinson. It stars Hailee Steinfeld as the poet Emily Dickinson and the rapper wiz Khalifa as the personification of death even though it's a period story the soundscape includes contemporary pop songs and based heavy score the frames. Jonathan Shift spoke with the show's composers about the first piece of music they submitted we did something So strange and so out there and they're like Oh we love it and we're like okay. I think this is going to be fun. Yeah we thought those main titles would be the first and last thing that we've done this show. My name is Chris and I'm from composer German lace. We can call me so FIA and I'm also a composer and performer summer. It was pretty random like we had no idea was coming in and we just got a call from Apple. I think November of last year. Saying saying that. There's this new strain show about Emily Dickinson but with kind of like a modern since score and I think we kind of thought that they might have been pulling our leg because we're like yes. Hello this is apple you know like what but turns out that I guess they really liked what they'd heard and thought that we would be good for the show because of our different sensibilities instabilities US exciting maybe a little intimidating just because a lot of the stuff that they were putting in his temp music whereas like inspiration is really well known pop music music. That's out now and produced by like three Swedish people months of time and thousands of dollars or like how are we going to compete with the. Yeah so you know it was kind of a tall order to have a score that can compete with tracks that it but then also live in Emily's world job NBC kind of carry all these different ways at the same time. I'm madly in love with you. Is If someone else I guess actually busy. I'll kill. You can't kill him his death. I'm in love with that. We can see some of the statistics of people listening. And actually there's One of the themes that the death theme and we you keep saying that that's the most shows aimed and it's such a compliment because they think people think it's an actual hip hop track and then they find out it's us and I love that. I wonder what people's reactionist God side one thing that we've kind of played around a bit on other projects. But it's never really been at the forefront was using Sofia's voices and actual instrument A different texture just to kind of make it somewhere interesting and his soon as they heard it. They're like wis that's amazing and now it's become like the biggest thing that we keep getting more. Sophie Marceau People's her singing voice is really kind of become like the inner thoughts of emily in a way so I didn't really think about the fact that there could be the psych further connection between tween the vocals and you know the way she's feeling internally and you know invoices kind of something that's been used to express oneself since at the beginning of time and I feel like especially there's well there's one episode nine has one called the our death which is interesting because it it starts off with being within a setting where you would hear a vocal piece. Because they're in a church but then by the end of it. She has an account one of the many encounters with death and it becomes like her eulogy in a way the foreigners to and fro. I feel like we've worked together enough at this point where we've become really good being critics to ourselves and trusting each other so if someone says something's not working leisurely trust that you know I think at least once every project there's always a bit of an explosion and maybe a door get slammed or something but but on the flip side it also. I think that there's been times when if IAN started a Q.. And he's like no this garbage like let's start from scratch. I'll go in and it'll be like no we can salvage this and the new transformed into something different. And that's why it's nice to have the two of us because it's like something that Ian or that I would have thought was a complete disaster at the beginning can evolve into something that actually works. We I work at home studios so we're literally in the same room for every single Q.. And every single moment sitting at the same mm-hmm desk and we end up spending a lot of hours in the studio together. Yeah I mean I've been trying to get on almost like a nine to five schedule lately. But he's just in this crazy world of scoring like you might get an email full of two pages of notes at ten pm that are due the next morning by branch. Whatever so you? I don't really have a choice. What happened last night? There's a lot that I think needs to get caught up on especially in the age of streaming coming especially when it comes to the fact that it's so hard for us to release soundtracks as composers and you know like even terms of you know royalties and there's there's is a lot of questions in the air that her talked about every new project. It's like so how the Rights GonNa work in this one. Once upon a time people would be like okay. Well the royalties. Are you know at least for us. It's like we kind of talk about this all the time like Oh to have been a TV composer in the nineties. You know because you see all these like TV composers opposers from the eighties and nineties. And it's like welcome to my Malibu home with my lake too studios. Meanwhile it's like. I'm just excited that to make like any kind of living doing this but at the same time it's like the same way that it is spotify and apple music and with all of these kind of extreme platforms. Is that people just expect for things to be free so when people booked for things to be free and when music is something that's so abstract it's really hard to put a price point on it because you know if you're buying a painting you're like okay. Well you can see the materials IOS and whereas with us it's like it's all just time and how do you quantify tired and that'll we'll do it for today.

Our 2021 Pop Culture Predictions

"I am linda holmes. I'm here with glenn glenn so glenn how many streaming services would you say there are. Do you think there are too few streaming services to many streaming services are just the right number of streaming services to the goldilocks. It's just the right amount if you have unlimited spare time that's right and what would you say if i told you that i had a way that you could maximize the value of all those streaming services simultaneously by doing one very very important thing. I'd say it's too good to be true. It does sound too good to be true. But it's not because you know what you can do if you go to donate dot. Npr dot org slash happy. You can support our work here. Pop culture happy hour support. Your local stations support public radio and we try to help you make the most of every one of those streaming services your netflix. Hulu your shudder. Your prime your him. Oh i made up the last one but all of them can be worth more to you when we can help you. Navigate them again. Donate dot. Npr dot org slash. Happy every year here at pop culture. Happy hour you make predictions about the coming year and when the year is over we revisit them to sink. we could not have predicted. The course of twenty twenty is a ridiculous understatement but nevertheless we press on we also turn our eyes to the future and try to figure out what the next year. we'll bring even when that seems nearly impossible. I'm stephen thompson and i'm linda holmes. It's predictions time once again. Pop culture. Happy hour from npr. So don't go away. this message comes from. Npr sponsor family of businesses looking for the perfect gift for the leaders in your life look no further than in good company a national bestseller and a forbes top ten business book of twenty twenty by arthur m. blank blank not a thing or two about leadership as he is not only the co founder of the home depot he is also the owner of the atlanta falcons and atlanta united and a world renowned philanthropist. Get good company at arthur blank. Dot com welcome back. You just met. Npr music stephen thompson with us glen. Weldon of the npr's does glenn joining our annual tradition for the very first time. No pressure is our newest co host. Aisha harris welcome. I hello. It's a smile hazing ritual. This is one of the moments when we test ourselves against ourselves. So the first thing that we are going to do is good. Glenn glenn is going to listen to his previous prediction again. Wind wouldn't be at but let's just listen to what glenn thought twenty twenty would bring the streaming wars will get their first major casualty. I actually thought about making this my prediction big streaming service is going to go under not not like a coin. Td inherit box. That's one of the biggies The last time one folded was film struck back in two thousand eighteen. And the reason. I think this is going to happen again. Is because the cause of that was just the way that warner's media restructured so like everything kinda went higgledy-piggledy on them. It wasn't fault of theirs. There was nothing wrong with their plan. It just the other things impinged we are living in a ceaseless churn of mergers and acquisitions and restructurings and this is just gonna keep happening. So all of these be streaming services are gonna keep running into that at at some point this year. A big ones. Go down. Qube glenn as i listened back to that prediction i think to myself. Essentially twenty twenty played out for streaming services about the way we all thought it was. Well my mistake was ahead to be bold. Had to be dramatic i to say a major streaming service and there were major casualties because qube doesn't count didn't count because he didn't exist when i made a proposal given the amount of hype that went into it i think you get partial credit for okay. Well let's let's put it at a b. now a minor service like dc universe kind of folded into hbo. Max but seeing what happened My mind has changed about this. Because i think the streaming landscape is now a lot less volatile than it was a year ago. I mean some of that is the fact that warner's decision to throw their entire slate of new movies to hbo. Max and twenty twenty one kind of bolstered it So i'm no longer convinced that the streaming landscape is zero sum game. Because what have we seen as the streaming options. Keep exponentially multiplying. I've been surprised. About how our cultures collective reaction is just like. Okay like this collective shrug. It just keeps expanding. And i can remember a time when i was like wait. Netflix and amazon. And now it's like netflix. Amazon apple disney. Hbo max peacock and those are all the major ones. And there's a lot more besides those now. All those that i mentioned are investing in original programming. Which is probably going to bolster them a little bit of give them some balanced. But i think you know. The era of consolidation hasn't hasn't changed but i think the real existential threat to any given Streaming service is not that it's gonna face plant liquidated but it's going to get merger out of existence like dc universe it so i would give myself a b minus here. That was millions of dollars in clubby. I don't know. I feel like you should give yourself a be. Yeah i think. I i would give you beef or qube. I give you be for quit. Be okay yeah. All right glenn so having given yourself a be what is your prediction for. Twenty twenty one okay. Mine is kind of related and it is strangely. Brandon lee hopeful. I predict that by this time. Next year the experience of moviegoing will return to the state it was in before the pandemic. Now you're wrong it's still gonna be problematic is still going to be precarious. But and it's not gonna look the same because a lot of the chains and the individual theaters have aren't around anymore so the names will be different. But i firmly believe that our need for familiarity and consistency and community is going to assert itself so strongly that it's going to put the light all those you know. This is the end of the cineplex forever articles and I don't know i. I just believe in us as a people and you'll know if i'm right you'll know it the first time you go to a movie theater and you don't think about it. It's not gonna happen in the spring. Is that going to happen in the summer. It's not gonna happen in the fall. I predict that by this time next year it will happen. You'll find yourself not thinking about it. Because we got we got ourselves a collective glimpse of what the future of home theater looks like and it sucks Now granted. it's not really a one to one comparison because the home experience we're having now is there's no alternative to it's like all we got. I think movie is going to go back to what it was before. I hope you're right. We'll it count as you being right if i'm at the movies but i'm in a spacesuit be mine isn't by minutes pacey fear but i'm having a panic attack. Think about it all right. The first time you don't think about it i think is going to be this time next year. I think that's fair. Then he is optimistic. I appreciate you being optimistic. A stephen thompson. I want to hear your prediction four. We we do not have to hear my prediction for this year. I absolutely crushed it a plus. So let me go ahead. And no. No we gotta here last year buddy. Once upon a time in hollywood. I think will win best picture. It is a love letter to old. Hollywood what could be a bigger slice of oscars catnip for album of the year. I'm going to say billie eilish over lizardo afterward they team up and do a remix together because that's how things go and for super bowl. I'm going to say ravens over seahawks. As for my other prediction i predict. I keep going hopeful with these. And maybe that says something about my about my personality that i keep being hopeful and wrong but i predict a certain amount of knocking down barriers to women in music particularly in the fields of country. Music and hip hop country. Radio is famously dominated. By what's known as bro country a bunch of dudes with one syllable in their first and last name singing about Tight fitting clothing and that you have all these amazing women in country who have hard time getting played on the radio. I think some of that will ease up in two thousand twenty. My metric is an album of the year nomination for the singer. Ashley mcbride who is celebrated on this show before She has an album next year. I predict it will be nominated for album of the year and the grammies and i'm gonna go ahead for hip hop. I'm going to say an album of the year nomination for megan thee stallion stephen thompson. How did it go all right. This is a very very mixed bag. Once upon a time in hollywood did not win. Best picture parasite did ya. Billie eilish did win album of the year. She did not record a remix with liz. Oh i love how. I made an accurate prediction and then undercut it with something. That didn't happen ravens over. Seahawks completely didn't happen. It was chiefs over niners the knocking down of barriers. I actually think. I'm in the ballpark on this ashley. Mcbride was nominated for best country album trying to predict what was nominated for album of the year in. This year's grammys Was a crap. Shoot if i had tried to do it. Twenty four hours before they announce them megan thee. Stallion's album didn't come out in time to be eligible for album of the year but she was nominated for four grammys including best new artist and record of the year That was pretty. That was pretty on point. So c-plus sela be that super bowl. Prediction was pretty heinous. Okay i don't think he can feel too bad about that. What what is your prediction for for. Twenty twenty one. What are you have. Well i think in the big picture. It's really hard to predict anything beyond more limbo. I am not as optimistic as glenn about a return to any kind of normalcy. I kind of predict that we're going to record our predictions show from our respective closets and apartments. Kind of the way we did this year i will. I'll go through. My oscars grammys picks. I'm going to say i'm gonna say thank for best picture on the exact same principle that i picked once upon a time in hollywood loves a movie that celebrates the way hollywood used to be. It's probably going to be something. I have not even heard of because of the way that that whole schedules shaking out. I'm gonna say folklore win album aveer. I like that's kind of shoe in say chiefs over packers for super bowl thus destroying my friendship with my cats at musically speaking. I think when we're talking about the grammys for twenty twenty two. We're going to be talking about. Adele and kendrick lamar. But i also predict a massive and colossal and much deserved breakthrough fourteen zero wack wack is gonna put out a record in twenty twenty one. The will absolutely blow our minds if the current singles are any indication. I think she is in for just a gigantic stardom wave that. I'm very very excited about but beyond that. I see a lot of inaction twenty twenty one. I i imagine a lot of talk about some sort of entertainment industry bailout to save theatres and venues and i just see not happening. I just see inaction well. This is good sets up an opposition. Yeah one of us will be right. One of us will be wrong. Alec when it's clean like that and there's no wiggle room usually the optimist. I do not feel optimistic Interesting interesting interesting well. Very optimistic about tier wacko. Who is awesome. Yeah it's safe to say none of us know aotearoa tiriac is awesome. All right i usually. You do not have to listen to any predictions from last year. You get off very easy with the beginning. Part of this and i would point out. We all also made some pandemic predictions that we are not revisiting yet so We've all still got some more in the camp. This is true whether they come to fruition but If we ask you just to look ahead to twenty twenty one. What kind of prediction would you have. Well i a non-production that riana is not going to release a new album this year. I'm i'm saying this in the hopes that actually comes. I know that. I actually does release one but my real. My real prediction is that we will see an unprecedented number of women nominated for best director This year at the oscars now. That is a very low bar because no year it have more than one woman ben. nominated in that category. And they're only been five women total. Who have been nominated and kathryn bigelow remains the only one who has won for the hurt locker so very low bar but because of the pandemic way things have shaken out in terms of what's been released what still needs to be released. There's a lot of chatter about the possibility of a clue how who directed nomad land. Which i've seen in. Which i think is a fantastic movie and i can't wait for more people to see it and for us to be able to talk about it hopefully And then also Regina king has getting a lot of buzz for one night in miami. So i think that you know if we have two of them nominated. That's already a big year for diversity. Now other either of them will win. Who knows but I'm very curious to see the way the oscars were still three ish years away from when the academy actually enforces. Its new inclusion rules about diversity and eligibility for films that want to be nominated for best picture right so you know it's going to be a slow train going but it does seem like because of the pandemic in this weird way that we might see a little bit more diversity that we wouldn't have otherwise it is sad that it took a pandemic for this to maybe happen but i will be happy if it does happen. So that is my cautiously optimistic prediction. Twenty twenty one. And i would add on if they provided that the dates lineup For eligibility wise. I think also emerald financial who made Promising young woman with carey mulligan. I think that's a spectacular movie that i think they are trying to do. An oscar nominated run I think that is the kind of movie where it might be too weird but it also might be the kind of thing that will get so much attention and so much respect and admiration. I can see that happening to even though you know. She's not a super well-known Director i it's it absolutely blew me out of my shoes. That movie and i can't wait to talk about it. And i think that's one that could definitely happen. And while wrote a kelly record for scowl absolutely all right. So the time has come for me to revisit. My prediction from twenty twenty as i recall it was pretty compact it was pretty simple straightforward Let's three words baby. Yoda movie announcement or some kind of some kind of rumor or announcement of a baby. Yoda movie if you've been watching the mandalorian on disney plus or even if you haven't you have probably seen the little thing that is not a baby. Yoda it's just a new. It's a thing that looks like iota but it's small but it drinks tea so it's not a baby. It walks and drinks teeth resolved. Maybe not baby. Yoda issue number now. It's possible that baby. Yoda will burn very bright and then be forgotten but that doesn't happen in star wars. Mainly people still care about boba fett man those pork dolls everywhere and that's been quite a while just right now. There are little poor things that you can buy. That are to put on the top of a pie The true facts baby. Yoda movie now. It might be disney plus only movie that counts scandia olafs. Big adventure does not have to be a theatrical release in these star wars either dang or the big thing. You know what i'm talking about but it can be streaming still counts so baby yoda movie. Let's bear market. It's impressive that. I didn't get all the way down to like. It might be a four minute. Short ensuring that prediction and it might be an interstitial between commercials on the oscars so while the movie didn't happen there are two very resonant sort of half predictions in there one is stream counts jj does and twenty twenty and two that people still care about boba fett That's that's also has a certain power. This year i mean. I think look. I think people still care about baby yoda. I don't think baby. Yoda was forgotten. When the new season of the mandalorian came out there was a lot of discussion because they finally told you baby. Yoda 's name was people were very invested in baby his. Maybe what. I should have said instead of baby. Yoda movie was baby. Yoda name. but that's not what i said. I said baby. Yoda movie and i get an f and f minus cause absolutely no version of that happened. Not even close. I i think you were ahead of your time. I think this will eventually happen. I also predict that in our next year one of us will say what linda just said. And i quote. I think look linda. What about baby. Yoda spin off. Would that count like spinoff series. Yes in a way. That's even more than move because like movie is like a one off. Because what i was really envisioning was like disney plus only one off movie. In some ways spin off would be my prediction outdoing itself my prediction over performing as occur. And thus still being wrong. Maybe there'll be a baby. Yoda holiday special in the future. I went wrong i did. They went instead with the lego star. Wars holiday special who could have predicted that So my prediction for twenty twenty one. I thought long and hard and decided that i would make a prediction similar to that one pretty easy to nail down. Whether it happens or doesn't happen. I think you're gonna see at least one more prestige documentary miniseries about a cult. I think they cannot help themselves. Because of the success success and buzzy -ness of the vowel and other nexium stuff plus. There's one a. coming out right now about heaven's gate. The thing is there are plenty of colts. Unfortunately it's the kind of thing you can put together depending on how good you want it to be. You can put it together. Relatively quickly. And i suspect there are ones that are in the works right now being pitched right now and potentially even assembled right now so i think in twenty twenty one you will see at least one more prestige cult documentary series. I like these ones. Where i'm gonna completely succeed lately. Fat no in between. So that is my prediction for twenty twenty one. I think we can say we've all learned a lot from looking back at our predictions or twenty twenty. that brings us to the end of our show. We want to hear your predictions for twenty.

Beyond Technique: Cindy Harter Discusses Optimism, and Making Clients Feel Comfortable in the New Normal

"You're listening to beyond technique the podcast that empowers photographers to bring their businesses to the next level. Hello and welcome to beyond technique, the podcast that empowers photographers to bring their businesses to the next level brought to you by pod photo, focus and Skip Cohen. University this shimmering, young and joined by my co host and King of the Unicorn emojis. Skip calling. All right now I understand why you were worried about offending. Sam deeply affect. On now, I have to explain to everybody. Can do it thirty seconds when we do these podcasts. Shamir and I are connected via text. And just to see if I can get her to crack and have water coming out of her nose as she laughs in the middle of podcast, I will send. Usually it's the Poopie Emoji. Today. She got the the just the absurd Unicorn with the hearts in the is so. That's love. That's what started everybody hey. Chamara you know under the umbrella of rainbows and UNICORNS. Especially right now through the endemic and everything that we're all dealing with. I can't believe the number of creative ideas and images being shared on the Plata pod blog and the instagram and somebody really did say to me the other day that this is like a rainbow, a creativity because everybody is stuck right now. Everybody is still different states. Depending on where you live, you are more hunkered down than others, and out everybody has the freedom to just be out, and it's really been fun because Plata pod is giving so many artists an outlet of creativity. And things that they can do while social distancing while being either indoors or at least confined in a in a particular area, and there's so much gray the there's so many cool things being shared under that you know rainbow and Unicorn. Unicorn creativity. Cool I mean even just I'm looking at some of the content that people are putting out using the plateau pot and I mean I'm seeing light painting I'm seeing tabletop portrait. Some seeing self-portrait frozen fruit zinc toy photography music are all done while under quarantine. At least most of it is, and it is so versatile. It's it's it's unreal, and you know it's as far as plateaued being. We'll say the Unicorn of tripods. It's absolutely true as far as versatility creativity goes, there is no limit to what can what you can shoot either in your home, or even as this quarantine is lifting out in the field, it's very cool. I'm not sure that plateau pot is ever gonNA WANNA use that as an ad line. You know the Unicorn Pop. But it is kind of fun to find out that that those outlets for creativity really do exist at a time when. It's it's. It's pretty hard just to have fun these days. When everything is buried under the stress of worrying about your health and your family, and his an opportunity to just be creative with with your photography and speaking of Unicorns, we've got somebody from the Unicorn capital of the world, a little town in Georgia We've got cindy harder Sims joining us today, and she is no stranger to the SUV Scu blog, and in fact, it's thanks to a summer program used to put together. That introduced me to Cindy for the first time years ago. Now, there's probably nothing she can't photograph, but her passion is definitely people and lately specially babies, but stay tuned because she's one of the most creative and relationship building artists in the industry. There's no telling what her focus might be next. As an award-winning WPI master photographer. It's obvious when you scroll through our galleries that she's also a perfectionist and she's always meeting the expect- expectations of our clients so with the impact of the pandemic. It's never been more important to maintain your relationships with your clients and target audience, and that's going to be our topic today, because nobody does it better than Cindy, so cindy. This is going to be the. Lips to move a to be on technique. Thank you so much, skip then, thank you, Samir for having me. I'm really happy to be here. And you didn't know you lived in the Unicorn. Capital of the world. Well I'm really blessed to live in one of the most quaint small towns in Georgia, I'm about forty minutes north of Atlanta in a town called Carter Still Georgia, and my studio sits right on mainstreet, and we have the most adorable active main street. A lot of movies have been made in our town because it is exactly what you think of as a southern small town kind of environment, we have about twenty thousand and our city limits and I love living there. How far are you from? Ashley McBride's Little Dive Bar and ago. It takes about an hour and a half. Now. Is that driving or crawling home? Well, usually when we go to Lana, we get on the back of my husband's motorcycle, so it's about an hour and a half. It's pretty fun. That's a beautiful town. She that you didn't know that I had been there. Yeah! Yeah you know I. didn't realize Cindy that your town is actually smaller than mine town my town, Port Huron is about thirty thousand dollars in the city limits and is just so cool that you have a thriving business. Just for our listeners benefit Cindy I chatted on the phone yesterday for a few minutes and I was amazed to hear that her businesses your business. It sounds like it's thriving, and you're in a small town thriving business during a pandemic. This is going to be a really cool conversation. I'm really excited to dig into how you run your business, but I we do. We like to start with our favorite first question. Just listeners can get to know you. Can you share with a cindy how you got started in photography and doing what you're doing today? Absolutely. It was about fifteen years ago I had gone through a divorce I was a music teacher. In this town I was the music teacher for the primary school so I taught eleven hundred children every six days under the age of eight years old, and I loved that job, but after the divorce I started doing photography. Really therapy was not looking for another job. It was to prove to myself that love existed and that it existed with other people and I would. Would seek out people that I knew were truly connected, and as a way to roll around in I would take their picture, and that's how it started and little by little, it started to restore my own heart in that I knew love was real, because was seeing it all the time, and it attracted people to my work. They started seeing something in the work and started asking me to take their picture, and that's how it started until eventually over about. About a five year period, I knew that I had two full time jobs and I had to make a choice between teaching school, and following photography and much to my own surprise, I followed the photography and I have never looked back. My business just doubled and tripled and quadrupled, and I have been so thankful. My photography uses more of me than thing I've ever done in any kind of business life. Well I think it's interesting. There's another piece of the. The story here which we don't need to take the time to go into today, but we'll have the link to a post. We did on s you on your background a few years back, but you didn't. You just have your. I set on wanting to build a business a photographer use. I remember talking to you about you saving over five year period until you also had the money to launch Your Business and then lucked out with a small storefront. Literally on on what most of us would think of his main street USA in a small town. Seriously everybody this is if you ever watched mayberry, this is equivalent of mayberry. It's a very small town with a lot of trust and a lot of people in it that Cindy has managed to build relationship with and I think that's part of the key. Right, now, and in fact that that segues really nicely into. Social distancing and talking about out. How in the world you can say your businesses thriving? When? There's so many limitations because of the pandemic. So what are some of the things that? You're doing to keep in touch in terms of products or services everything. Yes, we'll probably want to give you a little bit of back story in that at before the pandemic hit I really do look for opportunities to be active in the community to pick up my camera before causes that I believe in within the community, so leading up to you know March I. Guess is when it started to hit. Where are they were encouraging us to stay home? And then it was at the end of March that? We got the shelter in place order. so had completely shut everything down as far as taking my camera and working with people, but leading up to that point I just in two thousand twenty. I did a project for a local personal care home for men with special needs. My husband and I were at dinner, and I also heard a conversation with some people that were at our community tables, one of those Tokyo steakhouses, so they were speaking about where they worked in that they needed some more light on something that they were doing and I. We were talking and I said I think I could help with my camera. I think could shed some light. And I did this project for this personal care home. Home with special needs and I have a pretty good facebook following from my community, and within I mean within two days they had people make hanging bringing food people taking things to the home, and it was really helping It was a little later on that the homeless shelter here in our community services. Oh, so many people and I decided to bring my camera out once a week, and I would focus on stories of take pictures of people who were helped, and they would tell their story of how they got there, and what happened after the fact, and then we had a big event one night in another displayed all the photographs I had taken with their stories. And it just help shed some light on the subject matter. I'm also do all kinds of projects once a month. I go into the schools and I take pictures of the children that are students of the month once a month. Anything that I can think to do to help. I will do. And so when marched the march hit, and we had the shelter in place I put out a basic SOS on my facebook feed that needless to say I. Think Anybody with a small business. We were all worried. With good reason there are many that have gone under and had to close their doors, but I am stubborn and I am a hard worker and I am not afraid to work. And I just kept thinking if we can all pull together, and if we can pull from the equity that we have put into relationships up to this point, people want to help. My husband is one of those guys. I learned so much from him about relationships. He's one of those friends that no matter. If your car breaks down, he's the guy everybody calls to come. Pick them up. If you have a tool that you need you call my husband because he probably has it and he will bring it to you. He has moved more people. Nobody wants to help people move, but my husband always helps so when he gets in a pinch. I can't even explain to you. How many people come out of the woodwork to help him? And I try to model that in my business because every relationship. Kind of an experience is the same in businesses. If my business neighbors need help with photography or whatever. I really tried to be there over and above what I'm required. And as a result of all the equity I've put in in so many different places. I had no idea how important it was for now because I put out an S. O. S. of. I might need some help. And I gave two ways. People could help at first and it was. If you have had a past session with me, please by a print. Please by another print. if you could buy a print for your grandma or your neighbor or whoever that would help me if you would buy gift certificates that would help me and if you can't do that if we've ever had a session, would you please go and leave me? Google Review. and. I can't even tell you how many people came to my aid. I have had gift. Certificates bought prints made. The sweetest Google reviews I feel like reading. My Google reviews I read my obituary. It was. It was just such an uplifting. It lifted my spirits. That is GONNA be alright. People are going to take care of me. It's going to be all right and making the personal texting that went on one by one as I asked. Every client I've ever had in the last ten years specifically. Would you be willing to leave me a google review if you have not done one yet? And it was an excuse to start conversation and get caught up relational e with the people that I have shot. The last ten years and people booked future sessions. People bought gift certificates. It gave me a reason to interact with people in catch up, and since then people have checked in, it's been really one of the most uplifting experiences through this in that, instead of just sinking lower and lower and getting more and more worried. I've looked for reasons. For interaction with those people who have kept my business going for the last twelve years. And it's working and here I am. In May and I've been I opened my business backup two weeks ago. Granted I live in Georgia. I know in a lot of states. They're not really allowed to be open yet. I'm so thankful that we've been. I've been working for two weeks. In so many people have not just booked, but they've I've had so many inquiries that I've actually double-booked some days where I usually do one session a day, but I've been doing two sessions a day. just to keep up with all the inquiries and I'm just so thankful that people are being responsive to the. And it's because of those people that I've been able to be okay and. I can understand how people might think that a small town it might be harder to. Keep things going because there's less people. But I would probably disagree with that in that. I see the same people at the grocery store as I. See at Red Lights as I see is i. go down the street. You know somebody's car when they pass by Your House and we'll look out for each other. And never been more apparent to me than now. I've had part of the Google reviews. People recognize the things that I had done for the community or things. That I didn't have to do but I. I did because I wanted help them. And they're returning it a thousandfold. By helping me now. And I just I couldn't be more grateful. You are one of the. Possibly the I if there's someone else, they're not standing out to me right now because. If you're one of the few people, maybe one of the first people I've heard, use the word uplifting as far as this whole pandemic t to describe the whole pandemic experience and I think that's really cool that you're able to focus on on on being positive and optimistic and also taking action. I love that you reached out to your clients in your your past clients and your friends and. And and just the rule of the years of selfless relationship building that you have been involved in. It's all coming back to you. It's like seeds that you planted and I'm really curious to hear because you have because he took action. And now you have future bookings to look forward to by the way. How cool is that while business? While Your Business was closed down, you were looking Booking portrait sessions for the future. What so now you have those to look forward to? What. How does Your Business Look with the new normal? I no I can't say post pandemic because we're still in it, but we are shifting into this new normal. Are there any procedural changes that you have made? To Your! Business I guess it's a two part question procedure wise. How does Your Business Look in the new normal and then? What tips are you? Do you have for people looking to to build up their business? To answer that question I think, and it's what I do even before the pandemic. I follow the lead of the client. I follow them to me some to make somebody feel comfortable enough to be vulnerable in front of a Camera Lens, which is really scary, vulnerable thing, and it is the same with a baby as it is with an eighty two year old is you have to meet them where they are? And I tried to really be a good listener. And feel them and meet them where they are. If if I have a mom come to me who is scared to death? But she wants her baby to be photographed at this age because she knows it's never going to be again. I the first thing I do is I. Ask her I. Want to follow the precautions that make you feel the most comfortable right now. What does that mean for you? And the sessions that I have done in the last two weeks. I have had some people say I want you ten feet away. I want you to stay over there. Don't touch me. Don't touch my kids. And I say that's okay. If that's where you are right now, then that's where that's what we'll do and I have had others that you know. Say Keep a mask on. Keep gloves on. And I meet them where they are and follow their lead. And, that has been what I have done. It is worked beautifully because everyone feels comfortable and once everyone feels comfortable and safe. Then you can get to the part where they open up their spirit and their soul to you. Because that's truly what I'm there for. We don't want just pretty pictures. We Want I. Don't I. Don't want just pretty pictures. I want a picture that speaks to who they are, and speaks to the story that they have detail in. You can't tell your story unless you feel safe enough. I to tell it the there's a point. Point that I wanna hit on, and maybe there are other things that you've also done that. It might might come bubbling to the surface here. Shamir and I have been involved in a couple of different podcasts where we've talked about the pandemic and people have come ended about the importance of keeping in touch with your clients, and just just being helpful during this horrible time in in history, and that people will remember it. And when you were talking before and Shamir talked about you know seeds that were planted. You've been planting seeds in the community and for people that that haven't done that I wanNA remind everybody. It's never too late so in terms of being helpful now and even if you're not well known in your community, if you're in the middle of New York I I learned a long time ago. New York has a thousand different neighborhoods. You still have your own little area. You still have a neighborhood you still have. Neighbors, and people that you see Maybe you haven't seen them quite so often. New York is a little as is hard, use an example, because it's normally so busy, and it's had such a huge adjustment because the pandemic, but the point is that being helpful now is something. People are going to remember later on. So, that's a big piece. You just happen to have started doing it five years ago. And, this is where the payback comes, and being able to say hey, guys. You know I need some help and you are known in the community, and because you've been involved in the community because of that that. That men's What was it a a nursery hall or care facility? Yeah, be because you got involved. They're out of overhearing a conversation. That's the way I wish we can help get more photographers and artists. Just to set your mindset that way and just. Keep in tune to what's going on around you and and how you can help with his money in it for you right now or not doesn't matter. It'll be there later. Absolutely, it is never too late to be interested in people. There is a smoothie shop that I go to and I love their smoothies. Sometimes I go for breakfast and the manager. She would serve me eventually. She knew my order because I'm I same thing every single time. and. We make sure that when I know she's got two kids I know their names. I know how old they are. She knows I photograph babies for a living and I always show her I laid this client of some picture from the last session. And we talk every time, and and she now she's part of my community. She's part of my tie community I would call her one of my dear little friends. She's one of those people I see several times a week. I go to the post office in a male off sessions. Prints or whatever to go wherever and they know they know me by name. They know what I do they know my packages always look the same when they get. Taken and mailed off, and so we talk about what I do and I've actually book sessions from the Post Office workers because they know that's what I do, and they know how I get excited to see you know them, although often I wish my prince well as they leave me and no matter where you go I, think you should take the time to be interested in people. People and ask them and people are so relieved to not just have to make a smoothie, but actually get a chance to talk about their kids or not just have to take you through the post office. Things that you do at the post office, but to actually ask you. You know who who's getting this set of prince. They always asked me you know this one was. WHO's this is a family, or this was a maternity session, or and it gives people a reason to have an intimate connection with you, which is what we all long for I mean the reason why I love being photographer is because the camera gives me an excuse to have intimate connections with so many people, and they tell me their secrets in all of their stories, and the things that are closest to their heart, and that means everything. I was just GonNa do a while. And then there was silence 'cause I was thinking about while. Oh, Cindy, this is so cool I'm curious, do you? Has the pandemic caused you to change your promotions for this for the rest of this year What promotions do you have? Or what plans do you have as far as continuing to bring in clients? Book Portrait Sessions. Well I have to say that you know. Booking slowed down of course in March and April and the first part of May, two for obvious reasons, nobody go anywhere and that sort of thing, but as things have lived did I have a winning booked for this Saturday I. Don't do very many weddings. Anymore I'll do about five to ten a year but God love her. She did not want to change it. She has she had maybe two hundred guests invited in the beginning when she first did it, but she and her fiance decided that they wanted to get married. Regardless of what's going on in the world and everyone on the planet canceled. Canceled on their caterer, the place for the reception new I mean people just started cancelling right and left, and I told her I will have to be dead to not be there I will be there. This is a huge wonderful day, and if it's just, your family is just your family and I'll be there, and she's ending up having it in her backyard. And how beautiful is that? Because our stories continue and I feel like my job is to capture those the histories of all family, so I can't say that I have a preconceived marketing plan in place right now except that wherever you are I want to meet you there. And I want to be in it with you and if we can't I've felt a graph several births, but if I can't be I, have missed some through this pandemic that I was supposed to be in the delivery room with them, but of course that's not allowed right now so I've had one of my dad's with the cell phone and I'm helping him to know where to be. Where the light is good and. Where wherever it is, and however I can be there with you in it. That's what I WANNA do, and if it's through your cell phone, because we can't be together in the same room, because of all this stuff will I will meet you there if it's your comfort level that we do a picture of you in your bed with a beautiful maternity portrait, or whatever and it's your husband taking the picture because you don't feel comfortable coming into the studio or me being close enough to you I will meet you there and I will help you if you feel comfortable more comfortable, being outside and being ten feet away. I will meet you there. If you WANNA, come into the studio and. And borrow my maternity gales that are in my studio closet, and we create something amazing with studio lighting. I will meet you there. So I'm once again following the lead of the people that that love me and come to me. I'm just curious. A while back Shamir on I did in fact not so long ago a couple of weeks ago, we did a podcast for Tim Ron. Recipes with Eric Valent and and Eric talked about how as a commercial photographer. He's going back to all of his clients. 'cause they still need. They still need especially lifestyle images. For whether it's online or advertising, and he's got so much in his archives and. When you were talking before about going back past clients and going through your whole database in saying hey guys. We take a look and. Think about purchasing. A, print. What's what's been your big seller from that part of the outreach? What did what did people seem to get those that came back to what did they want? I think mostly. They wanted to help and I had so. Many prints purchased I. Mean that paid rent for you know a couple months which is Google rate? just in the print purchases alone and some people. If they had all the prints that they wanted, but they still wanted to help. They did a gift certificate so I. Don't know that I could say there was a clear cut. prints from baby sessions were the big thing. That's the most or family portraits or I would say across the board it least fifty percent of my clients bought some thing or helped in some way whether it be a gift certificate for a future session or Google reviews. I did end up with ninety three new Google reviews so ninety. People responded. With. Just was I couldn't have and then to read them. They were so nice I was like who are they talking about? Oh I always do just teary reading them it was. Really really special. It really know you encouraging. You've helped. Build that community in terms of of the photographic site I mean. If this had been you still teaching music, they would have. They would have found a way to buy a new piano have been. It's the results would have been. Would have been different, but the method would have been the same, and that's the point that that I hope we get more of our listeners to remember that giving back and being helpful right now. The world has never needed it more and everybody is always even before the pandemic everybody is always forgetting about their past customers because they're searching for new ones. And yet your. Customers unless you really stupid and totally were horrible and pissed them off. Right I mean that's your best resource. So if you've had this relationship with men like I, said unless you've been horrible there's a great resource up up there to be able to go back to people and say hey, you know because we are all in this together to be able to say. Hey, we you know is here's what I've got and right now is a time. Time in history where I think photography, is more important than it's ever been because we're all clinging to memories of the good old days, and the good old days were only ninety days ago. Where we're not, we're not going back. Yeah, we're not going back like me. Being an old guy going back Oh yet twenty thirty years go. Here's what we did. It's ninety days ago. And those pictures those those photographs that everybody has in their archives of past clients are incredibly valuable. Especially in seasonality. Mother's days already passed, but you've got graduation of. As was delayed and will be coming up. In June. Even though normally it might have been in May then you've got father's day coming up. What a perfect time! To Go back to your archives and come up with some ideas past clients of Heywood. He Getting Dad for father's Day this year. What are you getting GRANDPA? If. They chose once with a little reminder. They will choose you again. That's right. Off Stuff and I can't believe we are already. To our final question, unless skippy WANNA. Jump in with anything else on your mind. No I'm good, Cindy, you. Have you have shared so much? Could content add so much of a foundation for people to think about in terms of their target audience in our existing client base. Thank, you I'm so glad I got to be here. Thank you for asking me mean. Not We didn't let you go yet done. Awesome are our favorite. This is our favorite final question that we like to ask Sandy. What advice you have for photographers who are just starting out right now? What should be their first step they take. Don't buy anything unless you have the money to buy it. Make do with what you have. That has been my scenes throughout. And there have been occasions by lost. My mind did something where I overstretched myself and every time I regret it and every time I have to preach this thing to myself. Not Buy it unless you have the money to buy it. That's perfect. That's perfect. You know it's funny. I was just talking to a family member who has a friend who decided this was I think sometime last year? Maybe they decided they wanted to be a photographer, and they purchased thousands upon thousands of dollars, worth of equipment and out false, even for future clients to or to build their portfolio for people to wear. Their passion lasted all of prepare yourself three months. Before the move. and. He started with thousands of dollars of equipment, and it's just it's crazy. It's crazy, so a love your advice. Make do with what you have. Learned how to use what you don't go crazy with the equipment, because the equipment does not make a successful photographer, necessarily so low, and the stress of having being in debt in the stress of having to come up with who knows however far, you stretched. Yourself is not worth it. I've been there. Have made the mistake you know it's. We've all kind of made mistakes the same mistakes so that's perfect. Advice perfect. And I?

Translating. He has walked to Wednesday show studio one and brothers Osborne coming in in about fifteen minutes. You may know them from this song it ain't my fault. This is their new and called all night. All y'all. GonNa complain the next fifteen minutes or so. The big news yesterday was a CNA awards. All the announcements We can start with entertainer of the year. And is not on the list he did pull himself off I voted for blank picture of him a mention yesterday show I still think he should have been there's no reason he shouldn't be in the top five. Top Five. Are Eric Church Luke. Nice. The awards third me I felt like clicking jumping. Luke combs. Miranda Lambert. Carrie underwood. Keith. Urban. Interesting, you have this whole group of people that believe Eric Church has been screwed every year his whole life since he was five years old before he was even making music. So like he should have wondered before even had guitar, you know there's that group of people. Luke combs is the biggest thing in the format rights rolling I. Still Think Garth Brooks is the true deserve our of this, but he's pulled himself out Carrie is the one they think should have won last year Keith. One two years ago. And Miranda is here. You know who you're picking I have to vote today. I carried or Lou Combs? Maybe I don't. It's tough match. Think about it. I'm voting for Kerry. Because of last year. Lou. Combs is amazing. I think deserves it. He could probably get it next year. Never, people could die. Well I'm saying never never know about what's happening next year I never want someone to be like, Hey, we're gonNA give you. You'll be fine. You get an extra. Yeah. No. But if you feel like you deserved it last year and you didn't get it i. mean they all deserve it. So let's be honest. It's really difficult. All right let's see. No. No clips here. But for male vocalist of the year, it's mostly the same Eric Church Luke combs? Thomas. Rhett. Chris Stapleton Keith urban that'd be Luke combs across Stapleton for sure combs. In, the female vocalist Miranda Lambert, Ashley McBride Mirren Morris Casey Must Great Carrie underwood that'll be Miranda Kerry Kelsey Ballerini to make it. How shocked she got shut out. So. What well, why not why do you think it's just between? Miranda and Carrie. I think actually McBride's a little too new I get that part. I think she's. Beautiful KC and again, this isn't my preference because if I'm picking up who I listened to the most Casey by far right I don't think that the voters. The people that are voting love Casey. As, much as they like carry Casey just isn't. Available. So I think some people hold that against her Americans in the mix but Miranda, is kind of the critic's pick for everything all the time and Kerry is the biggest. So I, put it up one of those two. What do I know? I'm just a vote. Did you pick one right now I mean you can't. I mean I'm Miranda Merrin the. America. Surprise you too. Okay. Okay. Here we go. Let's see opinion free news is coming to cable television starting today mazing now. They say unbiased journalism and well people like that and I feel like people want to hear opinions that they agree with we've been conditioned now to only here. One here opinions we agree with if it's in the news on twitter. We. We just WanNa hear how we already feel because it. It justifies our thoughts at vindicates our feelings from our fights with our friends. How we give people the news and then give them the opportunity to feel how they want to about that particular thing. Oh, I, get it I. Think in a perfect world. That's amazing. Encouragement to people but their debut in this let's see last night I. Don't get a chance to watch it three hour primetime newscast Leon wgn America two, hundred television stations across the country, the four hundred journalists, and there's GonNa let it. Rip and say, this is news. We don't have any and you know for the news people like I have friends I have a couple of friends that work at Fox News in there like we have to say things even if we don't believe in south. Okay I was watching it. I'm not going to say they are because I'm not getting him in trouble, but I have two friends at work over there and they go. Even if we don't, we know this isn't real. We have to say this and I'm like that stinks I'm not going to say what I was watching today, but it might have been on that station and I mean 'cause I watch it but I thought almost could predict what this girl was going to say of course before she said, it dig my head. That's what he was going to say and I'm like, does she go to commercial and she's like Oh, can't believe out of say that tired of this. Is, GonNa turn on Fox News. People over there right. You flip it to the next one and you know exactly they're gonNA lean the complete opposite and you can predict what they're gonNA say and I wonder if that's how they really feel or if they're just like, okay, there's gotta get paid well, I think sometimes you go and apply places that you feel like a right for you as well. Yeah so well, regardless that's that's happened if you WANNA. Watch news. Without, the bias I think that's what show is. Completely free. On, the bobby bones show now. Are you guys doing. Pretty good to see its first time to not see you on a computer and a few months. That's true. I know it's weird. Feels really good though it does humans. Are you guys get into play much in front of folks. No. In. Front of people at all, we went to blackberry farm. Okay. A few weeks ago. It was all social distancing masks and all that and we played like fifty people and it felt like we might plan for fifty thousand and it was so fun just an hour long acoustic but other than that. It's been like instagram live or facebook or resume stuff. You know it's good to see actual eyeballs. This is awesome. Guys good we. The people don't want to come in and play or they're just craving to come in and play because he's having played at all so. I was now I'll start with this tj because I comment on your instagram picture. Did you decide during corn just to lift weights and only eat chicken every day? And Honestly. When I hit I decided only to drink like tons of beer and Tequila and wine and it was like yeah, it was wasn't going well so I decided to hit the brakes on that and try to try to turn around I'm still in the beer and CACAK. His. Truck. It on. blushing. Hard I haven't a feel good though I think he even said on that comment that it's we don't have a lot of time to really honestly take care of ourselves. We have a lot of fun, but it doesn't leave time our health so it's nice to focus on. A lot of our friends left the fire Emoji and I was like, should I join in? Dot, fight. I didn't WanNa look just on my own heart. Before I, looked I wrote a little comment like and you forgot to I forgot to mention I'm totally ripped whatever, and then I started everybody from Casey used to everybody was just like Bam Bam out well, I honestly. I liked literally like. Thought about that for days, I'M GONNA post this my boys are going to give me so much crapper this. I'M GONNA put it up. Hey Great. Thank you. Hard, why in the world? Would you not be proud of it? Well, I guess I am proud of all of the all the smacktalk and. That's jealousy jealousy. That's. happened. But I would expect nothing less I. Tell You I was talking about you guys the other day and. When I listen to music whenever I'm working out. It's mostly not country music except it's all hip hop and some nineties, rock and brothers Osborne. saw which we do that or something which was thank you. Do you guys like you guys like being the rocking country guys I thought you were going to ask you to be like listening to our salon. because. Like you guys have that intensity. I like kind of energy. It's really fun to to be a show and have really high energy. It's something I really love. It's. Going shows that are that way and I mean everything has its time and place. But that's awesome. That's a huge compliment that we've made your your Jim playlist laughs show we want to be like our live show. It's fun. It's rock and it's loud. It's full of energy and you know it's not like we consciously do it. It's just fun to play. Alive brothers Osborne show whenever it aim doing any my fault in the whole freaking crowd has hands up. That is a moment. Every single like that's the moment for people. If they're medium brothers, Osborne fans like they've been exposed a little bit I think that's the converter for folks that's an and so two that was actually a conscious thing. Really let's put this on like I. Don't know we'll start off with my hands up because it worked with the lyric and the context of the song. But I always realize I like songs Kinda just tell you what to do like you know like the Hokey pokey. Told you how to do it. Well Listen I. I also love that you guys are putting out new music because I'm just a fan of you guys aside from. So, let's see skeletons I'm GonNa hit a few of these tracks real quick I. This is actually skeletons this. This'll be track five him some of this, right OWNED JESUS SHOOT This one I could work out to. This is it with the cool thing that you guys do is that your your ballots are so soulful to it's like you guys go one way and then when you slow it down, it's like the most heartfelt soulful ballads to use. The. There's been really crazy with all this. We made a record that we really wanted to perform live in this new record. Skeletons is all really about that a lot more tempo stuff and stuff that we think will work even the stuff that isn't tempo will would work really well live, and of course, we haven't had a chance to play. ATLANTA. So we have no idea. What we tried to do is even going to work. Out Some right yeah. You guys ever feel like you have to prove the people that you're literally brothers do they ever go? Are you used to get asked that all the time it used to happen all the time we think people thought we were boyfriends. We actually played a we played for who was Mark Wright who who's been like legendary. Songwriter. Label had and We went into office to play and he was looking at us. So where did you guys meet and we're? You're talking about this we live together. At like era getting the house decorated for Halloween and he was like, where did you guys meet like when my mom gave birth doing? couple. Fill about the success. Other extremely. Proud. You know we've talked about this a little bit and I don't know that a lot of people know this. But both both of them tried come the national and we were a little and they wrote songs and sang songs and these to come to Nashville all the time trying to get people to cut their songs and cut their teeth here and and and so it was. Really kind of a dream of their. So they're extremely supportive the whole time of US coming here. But I think there they couldn't be more happy especially seeing those kind of of dream they had just I. Think for most people I think just when their kids go out and do anything and are just having success I think it's just a surprise for them. Our Dad's just so he's very. Very supportive aren't so excited about everything but a mom still like promoting like constant promo and we told her replying on the show. She says, hi, by the way she's like. Do should tell bobby to get you on the Grand Ole opry and this is last night. I do that he can do. Own Boat here still need bobby. U.. S. Jeremy. At all. But you don't need it. That's right. That's funny. We will let me she like when you are I mean when when you all played before even came to national she like helping to make posters or she was always promoting and she still does that stuff all the time I mean I think anytime she's always asking people if they know who we are totally out of context I've gotten so many people like you gotta get the the manager at Lowe's the some tickets to the Orion show because he was really nice and helped me and Mike How To help you find something else he's got. But she also for the longest time was so mad at us that we didn't go on American idol and even after we had some success, she still thought that we had done it wrong that we could have done it faster. Her daughter American idol and who knows I mean? She actually could be right. Do. You guys thefts, but still didn't this could happen two years ago. Honestly, I can't prove you're on. It was her idea for us to be a duo and we we tried not to do that for the longest time because it was her mom's idea that we did and it works. And she was like, okay, I had one. Now I have to have the other duo partner so. My plan is complete. I'm GONNA play a little bit of hate and somebody this track eleven on the new record when it comes out. Many. Like what are we talking? How many takes you do? When you're making a song on what depends on that one? It was just one take because Jay Joyce as a jerk and you put you on the spot and he doesn't fix things. But it was that was I. Remember the first I? Did he his quote was I just WanNa take that Damn Guitar out of your hands. Thanks J. Even know what that means but I hate you for it and so basically was saying was playing too much but I spent a few takes Kinda sussing out the part but I don't know probably about three takes in I. Finally got my part and he was like, all right that. Was Great. Don't change anything a nice stacked it with another part, but try to keep it minimal because if you give me like twenty, it takes to do something I will perfect it but I'll kind of take the cool out of it. You know you want it to be a little rough around the edges as my next question is is, do you feel like part of you? The character of your music is imperfection at times Oh yeah. Oh Yeah. Things on. The Willingness. It's a good question I think the willingness to be imperfect. Is Scary, right. So the reason why you fix all the imperfections is because it's vulnerable I think imperfection vulnerability. So you have to be willing to do it unfortunately working with Jay Joyce our producer he allows you to do that. You actually forces you to do it and you have to trust them on that and I listen to things and it makes you a little uneasy but I think that's what makes me human none of us are perfect. We're GONNA play all night right now before I hit the song tell me about this wide open like when you ride it, what's the deal? With Andrew Roberts is a really really become a really good friend of ours collaborator and he's just awesome writer. He's worked a lot on that song land stuff and We've just worked really well with them wrote skeletons with him as well he's awesome guitar player and producer, but we kind of want us we just John we were in there kind of talking Jaundice started had this bear guitar and started playing this lick and I like stop a conversations like that lake is awesome. Started riding over it and when the Song Donna it wasn't like the lyrically wasn't overly complex, and at first we were we were kind of not sure if it was a song we want to record and then ultimately it was. GonNa the collusion that not every song has to be like the most the deepest depths and and just thought it was time for us to put out something that wasn't so serious was just easy to digest and and you know for people to kind of tune out with all the all the heaviness. I run to this song really. Yeah I hate running. By this on this song, I gotTa have the perfect place to run. So running tempo. On the bobby bones show now. Says, you guys are from Maryland Watertown? What's what does that mean a watertown? So it's on the Chesapeake Bay we grew up not on waterfront property, but across the street from waterfront. Property. And this just boats, there's more votes than people waterfront property at discount at a discount half off waterfront property. And and yeah, it's just a you know a lot of fishing lot of crabbing. twenty-second walk from appear that we would spend our whole childhood on jumping off of crabbing around and it's just we're water people. You know it's a little bit of a different breed. It's like I think we get a we used to get a lot of flack. From, Maryland in your country music you know and you down in Georgia it's farms that grew up in the farm. We didn't go on the farm. The water is essentially a water farm you know and it was just the same kind of mentality and and that's what it is. You know I missed the water so so much when you were kids, where did you guys play music for like there was a room in the house or you're a lot of people actually have like two to five ten to my arm and a lot of people ask. What it is and it was a band that we had with our dad called DEUCE and a quarter and we would play I. Played. Upright Base Jumping Guitar Dad Sang and played Acoustic Guitar, and we would play a lot of times at the house when we would the first tell me went on to play shows was at local bars. There's a place called Happy Harbor. That's their place called skippers that was there that we would play off in and a few other places but I mention those too because they're actually in our our video for our. Blast. From the past Birdsong Rum and be shot her music video there and so that's kind of a little bit of a bird's eye view into the bars we've played when we were fifteen sixteen just I kinda cutting our teeth and everyone that's in this music videos were war also at our shows at the. So it's kind of a cool Oh maget I guess to to kind of growing up there. All right. Here's a pitch for when the record comes out and you come back in. We get to five together. Yeah I know and listen I'm their mom will promote it. You guys think I'm kidding but how legit would that be? Would Your Dad do it? He would nervous were. Three, years before it can. Provide. Them. Think about that because if you WANNA do I would love to. Spend time with your jobs when talking about doing a little or a record on how they wrote some songs ever really awesome and you know and I. Still Think to this day recording some music on on our dad So that would be fun to do legit. Okay. The record comes out October ninth There are three tracks will swing through them real quick from skeletons. We have all night you can get this one right now. All. Their skeletons. Jesus you've got take. And here is hating somebody. took. Over ninth, that's when record comes out. You can pre-order. Now if you download it, you can pre save it three I don't remember. Everything. Yeah Yeah you guys have your tires. Your gracious enough to come into play a song and I actually requested Salo longer. Do you guys like that one? If you only get one to play Really honestly, we get asked what you were talking about earlier when people when people were clapping tonight my fault, we live playing the songs that just whatever the crowd bikes is really my favorite song to play that at that time. So if people request something like it and All right I like it. Right Now Brothers Osborne.

Show. Yup. This story comes from Cincinnati Ohio a woman stole a driver education vehicle. One that says be careful student driver on the sign she's just driving around. Then she sees a cop in front of her. She's like I wonder what a cop does all day she followed the cop for eleven miles cop became suspicious pulled over found other car was stolen. So she steals a car and then follows a COP follows A. Car a car that obviously is. Yeah. Yeah. Used for something other than just getting point A. to point. B.. In. Why is she suddenly curious? What does all day? Could you do that already? All. Right. What happened and so she got the cop pulled her over because she was like, why is this guy? This girl follow me another car was stolen arrested and that's crazy. I'm much box out your bonehead store the day. The Oklahoma City Police Department responded to a TACO. Bell. On Saturday night right before nine pm because there was a guy going through the drive thru completely naked. But naked to the drive Thru Christopher sale sixty one was in his vehicle in the drive through. He paid for his order the restaurant and then asked employs he can get an additional, Taco One of the employers not comfortable with this, and another ploy gave him the TACO. Then he asked Moore Sauce. and. So then he left, they called the cops would you call the cops? There's a naked man driving through now I just give him his food and beyond his way probably would've instant. On my phone. Maybe But I was thinking what I call. The cops falls working at the restaurant I. Don't think. So the thing is it could indicate that he's impaired in some way if he's driving then I'd be worried about that but. That would maybe be the only reason why I would call the cops but wasn't as because it's closer in the wash. Well, that's pretty sad. Yeah. Oh, we'll give within. Either warm weather or wait till they get other drier. Police were able to detain sale. He told them he was hungry and that all the clothes were in the Washer he also said and I kind of believe in here he didn't know as it gets a lot of Dr Naked because what of your car I? Didn't know that. Did. You know that's what I'm saying I didn't know that. Because if you can't see it. Are you naked in Mo-? So you can't see below the. RIMS. I wouldn't drive naked in case there was a chance or in case I got into a wreck. Oh, embarrassing wouldn't that be funny bed take lunchbox and make them drive to memphis naked and see if he. There and back without getting stopped. Only to see if he can make it without. Then through a drive through. It's just we've got. We've got put in jail before put in jail before for doing this other than a funny story, the guys in his car. You Ain't got in the wrong car at work here at work. Yeah. Somebody in our building drives a Toyota Suv a lot like my Mazda. Driving, which in it was I went to it pulled the door handle which this the it has the key lous Mazda has that you put your thumb on in opens, and so I thought I was just putting my thumb on it open and I went and I sat in and then there was all the stuff in the front seat and I, was like what and then I look at the steering wheel and see Toyota Symbol Lot Mazda and I was like so I get out. So somebody that works here left their car unlocked and it was parked in the spot where I had normally been parking but I had parked across the garage. So then I got out and I did the walk ashamed to my car do you ever do the thing where you're in a parking lot? You go to a car that's not yours. But looks like you're trying to get in and you're getting mad because it won't open up and you're like, what's what's happening here I, have. Now. This is definitely you're not even the first time I've got the wrong car before, but it's cars that are left unlocked and I'm free to get in. So I just get in. That's how most cars are stolen nowadays not people bustle windows because the criminal doesn't have to bus windows why would you risk hurting yourself whenever you can just walk and pull doors? And see one of them being locked, and that's what they do will there was a bunch of teenagers in the neighborhood I used to live in the cops told me and I saw them do this. They just go car to car down the road anything's unlocked and they're not trying to the car, but they wanNA steal money or so phone or chargers or whatever's inside. Kelsey Valerie twee yesterday. which what will she didn't get nominated for female vocalist out? No I. I only saw her post about her whole in the bottle video there are a lot but yes, the. Her not getting mentioned for female vocalist. And people were like, Dang Kelsey Ballerini didn't get nominated i. feel the same way. But she goes, Hey, last time this happened I wrote homecoming queen the next day about the feeling something beautiful will undoubtedly come from the current disappointment. Nonetheless congratulations to my friends and peers. The got nominations proud to be a part of the country family always. Does. A Nice response considering that she had to be dejected. She's good at that taking the high road. Yeah. She does that well, and I think a good reminder for all of us. When you go through something, you know you can process the feelings and then either create some things special and awesome or grow from it. Yeah I don't really create sometimes I don't take the high road. I just start firing off we all respond differently anyway good for Kelsey. So that's pretty cool. I was reading a story on wedding shaming and I was reading the story. This guy's going to his cousin's wedding. The rules require guess to sign a waiver and said masks and social distancing was optional. So you have to sign that if you get coverage and not gonNA sue. Oh, and also know that. I we're not wearing masks and we're we're not even gonNA buddy distance between us. So come at your own risk the rules also noted that guests need to bring their own beer. I guess the list of rules also included no children are plus ones and folks into dress accordingly. The weird thing is they're saying no children plus ones. You would think that would be the other way because if you're going to just go wild. Bring whoever you want to wear masks. Because of Kobe, the rules stated Damascus optional. But then the couple's guess would have to sign a covid nineteen waiver. Apparently the note insisted the guest bring their own beer quote bring your own beer and you my die. Best wedding ever. Those terrible ray what are you doing with? Yours is everybody getting tested before the wedding I think that's a great idea. Now. It seems like people can get them for They can be expedited for what five dollars so we have. Five dollars that's expedite I read on the news that they're common. Maybe by October, but we just don't want to get tested. We take that time and then nobody gets test back. You mean dude at the door and then they can't get a result. Now contact the people I mean pretty soon they can you go ahead and get a test? No not pretty soon the week before. All right but yeah, we'll do that and then October nineteen eighty. All right.

Here's Travis. Hey, good morning bobby I had a quick question I'm the same age as number two and yesterday you were talking Bro something you said that you were going to sign this thing after Eddie asks you if you were GonNA buy a Kayak? I don't I guess could you explain that to the millennials? Thank you. Yeah. To Seinfeld it means to go out on top and I may have invented term in this. Tax In this context but Seinfeld retired at number one that show ended when it was at the peak of popularity, which is rare most shows get canceled end as they start to go down and Jerry. So I'm was like you know what I'm done and we're GONNA go out on top and so when I had my kayaking and I didn't die and did pretty well, I was like I'm done I'm Seinfeld in this baby I'm going out world. Kayaker. So that's what Seinfeld at means does that make sense to you? Yes. I've heard you use it before but I could totally understand where people don't get it I guess if you're not at least thirty, three or thirty four. But they may yeah, they may watch Seinfeld and know what that is but not know that Jerry wanted to go out on top. Or the show ended like you did and it was a humongous deal more watching it on the streets in. Times Square on the big screens ideal. Now, let's do one more. This is Trent in North Carolina. After you where did you get the Green Bird? Shirt from I love it and I loved to have won. The green big bird shirt I have I had a big bird shirt on it was kinda light but I get some of my stuff from an APP called Stock X. where? I get a bunch of shoes from their love shoes and sometimes I'll get sweatshirts from there. So you have to download and it's a bidding APP there's not a commercial you bid on stuff and Or you can just buy it now kind of like Ebay but I get a lot of stuff from stock stocks mostly shoes I. think that's where I got my big bird and sesame street stuff. That's up. Amulets coming up in the pile while TV show from the nineties is reuniting for an unscripted special. Good. We don't care about from the Nineties, oh? No. I. Think you're one hundred percent going to be pumped about it, and then a company had to release a statement to warn parents about a challenge that has gone viral. So I wanNa make sure that parents know about it. Come back with that next. I'm holly. Markets Together. We're exploring the margins of history and specifically at the intersection of history and true crime. Welcome to the criminality podcast. Our first season of the show is all about lady poisoners. Is. Not been kind to ladies women have been marginalized even vilified their falsely accused and often misunderstood time and time again. But sometimes women take power for themselves and sometimes they do it through murder. Some of these women absolutely works. But some of them were probably labeled as criminals with that was not the case in all of them were reviewed societies, lenses sitting at this intersection of being both killers and the fairer sex but how many were just misunderstood Listen to criminality on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts for wherever you get your podcast. Pile of stories the Morgan Wallin tweeted I just called my label and told him I WANNA make a double album double checking y'all are good with that. So obviously fans are and he's going to be doing that and it should come out sometime later this year I don't like it honestly I love. No, it's too much at once so many good songs get skipped over because nobody has the time to sit and listen to thirty songs I wish you'd put out about three songs every two to three weeks, and now we'll keep music coming for solid six months. Because I, really like Morgan Wallin very anti this you should tell him he doesn't care. Is that how it works to you call the label obviously, I wanted to it isn't they might have had a conversation ahead of time. And also. A double album what does that even mean now because most people aren't buying CDs anymore right mostly just a bunch of tracks but love Morgan Wall I wanted my favorites now but I would rather have a few songs. Every few weeks can invest in each song because you guys know. I'm the comes out even give them an artist. You like you don't every song enough. True. I did do that with Taylor Swift's folklore that came out, and that's like the first time I had done that in a long time. Then what listened to a whole album when it came out but a whole album three or four times? I listened to a once and then I was like. One of these songs but if you've listened to what again, I bet you would have found more hard to do that. Anyway. Good Morgan Wallace fans will love it I'm a mortgage, Wallet Van, but I love it right. What else? So the cast of the fresh prince of bel-air reuniting on Hbo Max to celebrate the show's thirtieth anniversary I'm more excited about this and friends. Because, I know we're all the people from friends are I have no idea where Dj Jazzy Jeff is a why do I Samsonov DJ -Ing Stock is still on the Internet but I mean like Jeffrey Oh yeah I mean are they Alive Philip Banks, but I WANNA see everybody else in where they are now how old or young or their stories I don't more than friends will most everybody set to be a part of the special and they're taping it September tenth and then it'll debut on HBO, Max around Thanksgiving, and bats the home of fresh prince of Bel Air streaming sorta like friends can't stream it anywhere else except for if you have HBO Vaccine Greet and good for will Smith forgoing y'all do it doesn't take himself. So serious big one 'cause he's a massive international movie star He'd have to do that doesn't need the money, but that's pretty cool. What else well. Johnson and Johnson is begging parents to beware of a new Benadryl tiktok challenge. Saw The set's pretty scary. Now, a couple of months ago three teams were hospitalized in Texas, after they took part of the challenge and then most recent knowledge by the way, take a whole bunch of them in hallucinating. Yeah. Oh, it says take enough of it so that you start to hallucinate and a fifteen year old girl just passed away because of it and she was known as a really happy faith driven girl not one to experiment with drugs but she thought, oh, it's vinegar all you can buy over the counter we've got it in our medicine cabinet I'll just. Take Part in the challenge. Why not? So? The Johnson and Johnson's working with Tiktok and other partners make sure that they can stop the trend but make sure you're checking on your kids in that they're not doing this. Do you worry your daughter doing not this challenge but any of these dumb challenges that can get hurt or sick? Yes. Because she might see that and Think, Oh, I've seen Benadryl in the Pantry I'll go grab some and some of them do look fun I'll be honest right? That's the scary now. They do it and it was amazing.

If when Kayla I have a kid that if it's pretty because a heard, not because of me. Because sure and I would say, I'll deans kid not because of him. Yeah. Hopefully, it has like his. Ability like grit attitude but you Kinda hope we all we talk we're like. Don't. You wonder what side of the genetics because I you know if If, let's say we have a kid if it has her athleticism and my. nerdiness the kids going to have it all however. ATHLETICISM.

You guys are awesome. I can tell you my story is that I want to punch and paid fifty bucks and got one and I think guitars tough and so. You can start and it'd be like it's not for me and you don't WanNa spend a bunch of money on guitar for that reason. I. Would suggest going to a pawnshop finding a guitar and see if they stick with it for a few months and if they do then you start to find one that's a little bit better. It's an it's an investment especially with people just get bored with that order fingers her right Eddie. And I think that the two hundred dollar range is good because anything under two hundred dollars could be really cheap and it's not good and if it doesn't sound good, they're not interested anymore. I would disagree a bit I. GO cheap see if they want to learn. Yeah I bought it I bought too cheap ones, and then it just kind of buzzing a lot and they're just like I sound terrible on this. Show.

Morgan Wallin's up there with almost loophole. It's pretty crazy. He kinda snuck up on me a little bit. I. Know. My. My. Like for all of his stuff like he he just there I think he did something maybe with Florida. Georgia line care number maybe and I'm like, okay. Okay. This guy and then it was just like hit well. The the thing with Morgan Wallin. Was it comes out with like a party song with Florida, Georgia line guys. So you're like, Oh always can be a party Galley Florida, Georgia line in so you're like I wonder if that's just He his stuff is so much deeper and there's so much texture on a bunch of stuff.

Brothers category. For Siblings. Group. I. Think they wanted. To come to. My head. So hard. To the categories here, Brooks and Dunn for off. Love them but again, they put up the reboot album.

Safe, she doesn't to do this segment before they were. Why do we do? Lick them. We could've and they probably have said Dan Shea to. All right. Well, we're done talking about cms. That's an interesting thing. I it's award season doubly. Right now because of ACM's are coming up that's confusing to. If. You're not in the business, walk what the crafts, the difference. There's not a lot of different get to award shows happening in two months. we're lucky. We're lucky. We have a lot of great artists here. I saw Ozzy Osbourne as let as hair go grey. It looks, pretty? Cool. With me I don't like I get a little grim sideburns and get like some might change a little bit but I'm not really scared gray I. always felt like once I finally got the person because I was like I feel like I'm a peacock. Joma feathers until someone decides they want to be with peacock and then I'm good. And so I don't even worry about the gray stuff anymore sometimes on TV brush them. With a toothbrush with the brown stuff embarrassed to here I. Think if I were to start going gray I would just let it go also have light hair. What do you di- your grays yes.

071 We Reserve The Right To Refuse Service

"Thanks for pressing play. Hi, this is Christopher and on today's episode I. Answer a Listener Question. When is it okay to turn customers away, and if by chance you have a marketing or category, designed question or life, question or anything else? You can send it to black hole all one word at LOCKHEAD DOT com. We're sponsored by our good friends at Oracle net, sweet checkout, net sweet dot com slash different today, and our friends at spunk are the leaders in data to everything visit, spunk dot com slash D to e now as Joey Ramone said Hey Ho. Let's go. This is lockhead on marketing the podcast that helps you develop a lens for what makes legendary marketing legendary posted by Christopher lockhead. Three Times CMO Godfather category design and a High School Dropout with a marketing journal calls one of the best minds in marketing, and the economist calls off putting to some. All Right? This email came in from a gal named. And she says dear Christopher. This is such a confusing time. People are on edge. There's a lot of arguing and mistrust in the US. It seems like we see more people acting out. And in our case, we've had some customers behaviorally badly. When is it okay to turn a customer away? All right well first of all. Let's talk about the law and Super Caveat Caveat Caveat. If you're a longtime listener, you know exactly how much time I spent in law school, which is zero so I am in no way a lawyer, however I am three-time public. Company C Ammo. And have served on a number of public boards, and at least know a little bit about this so I'm not giving legal advice. That's not what I'm doing. However, my understanding of the law is that you're allowed to refuse anybody service, but you can't do it. On the basis of things like color race gender, sexual orientation things along those lines, and the sort of conditions under which you refuse service need to be consistent. That is to say you can't refuse service to people for doing action than change your mind in for doing why and so forth and so on so. First thing you really need to do check with your lawyer to make sure you are one hundred percent in compliance That's why big companies have general counsels, and that's why little companies have employment and other kinds of lower so check with them, but my understanding of the law. Is that You can refuse service to anybody is long as you're not discriminating on something along the lines I just described, and again I am no lawyer and I don't even play one on the Internet. Now, here's what I'll tell you from personal point of view, and from been doing this for thirty four years point of view. I think it's Ok to refuse service to anybody who's being a shithead. And we had a situation happen here in the Santa Cruz. Monterey Bay area not long ago. There's a super ding-dong place in Carmel by the way if you haven't been to Carmel it's It's a stunningly beautiful place. And this super, and also, if you're new Ding Dong is a term of endearment for something that something or someone, that's very high end thing anyway. This place called the Bernardus. Bernard's lodge in Carmel and I've actually been there and it's a wonderful place. Well, it turns out on Fourth of July there was an Asian American family. They're celebrating a birthday. and. There was a tech CEO named Markle lofthouse sitting near them. And he decided to pop off on them with a bunch of horrible racist slurs If you Google it, you can see it and we'll have a link in the show notes to an article. About what happened, but the bottom line is this guy lost his mind and said a bunch of horrible things. And then something legendary eappen, an employee stepped in. A A server named Janika Cochran. said to him, he was saying these horrible things. It confronted him. And said quote, get out. You're not allowed here. You do not talk to our guests like that. They're valued. Guests get out and quote. And through this misbehaving tech, CEO out on his ass for being the racist should head that he was being. That to is a legendary story. In the reason that's a legendary story is it shows several things number one. That the folks at the WHO run Bernardus Lodge have some core values. And that in one way or another, whether it was formal or informal, they had communicated to their team. including of course Janika Cochran that there were certain behaviors they would tolerate and others that they wouldn't and racism and out and being an Asshole, clearly with something they were not going to allow and so. Jessica felt empowered to do that. I don't know if she asked for permission. I don't know what she did, but she took action, and to so that to me is indicative of a Janika being a good person and being the bernardus lodging. Carmel Creating an environment for their people centered on a set of core values so that in a moment of truth there people would feel empowered to do what they thought was right, and that's exactly what happened. Now in my life I've had a couple of situations like this pop up of late. My father in law is a farmer. and He. has a a small farm with fruit trees on it. And he's He's well into his eighties and and he sells his fruit a farm stan on the side of the orchard. And as you might expect the whole family chips in so taking care of the orchard, taking care of the FA farm stand is a family affair, an Italian family and the family chips in, and we are there on a regular basis helping papa out. And we have put up signs. We put up hand sanitizer. The signs say you know one person at a time in the stand and please wear a mask, and there's a pure l. squeezer thing right there so that everybody can be safe and everybody can be clean and cleanline- De, sanitized and the like. And interestingly enough as a side note. It seems like people love businesses like this, even more than ever Papa sales going through the roof right now in a way that is very very unusual, and yes, we're having a good fruit. Year it was a cold winter in California, and so that leads to good fruit, but that doesn't explain all of it I. Think part of what explains it is people are looking for. For things that are real and buying fresh fruit out of fruit, stand and not having go inside a restaurant. I, think is really appealing to people right now. Anyway, so that's one thing that's going on in our family and my wife and I were there recently, and this couple showed up, and they both started sort of entering the area of the Farm Stan. And that neither one of them had masks on. And so my wife said. Would you please put on a mask? Know the signs right fucking there right anyway. They start getting Lippi about really. Do we have to do that? And she says yeah, we have to do that. And they say why. And she says well. There's a global pandemic on, and we need you to wear a mask. And by the way my parents are in their eighties and we're not. They're not getting sick and so where a mask. And then the woman says well I. Don't see your parents around. What why does it matter? And I step in. Say listen where a mask they said. We don't want to wear a mask. And my wife says well then you can't shop here. And then the guy says well. We're never coming back and then I say thanks don't come back. And, so look I know this is playing out all around the country right now and. I know this for some reason. Masks have become a political issue I'm not exactly sure why I'm going to tell you a little nother story about that in a second. But on this one, our families decided to take a stand. Our families decided to listen to the Stanford. Doctors and other medical professionals who say wearing a mask makes a difference in addition to that. We're doing everything possible to make sure that the old people in our lives that we love don't get sick, and so in this case we refused service and we told them to stay away forever. Now. I had a somewhat similar situation. As it relates to me, personally I have been posting some stuff recently about masks, and in particular we had heard recently from a Stanford doctor that if the United States, if people in the United States wore a mask for about six weeks, we would get this thing contained. And when I was told that. I thought Oh. Why isn't anybody talking about that? It's doesn't seem to be out there very much, and so I posted on social media about this and the Post. I put up on linked in was viewed over thirty thousand times I couldn't believe it. Anyway. On, one of the social platforms I won't get into one of the specifics. Of people who were being? And saying you know masks for idiots and for she poll and you know this that and the other. One guy started to criticize me, and and this that and the other and and he just kind of came right happening and. I told him in no uncertain terms. If you don't like my posts. Defend me. Go F yourself. And so here's what's clear. By me, trying to help, spread the word that masks are good and viruses are bad. I have upset a bunch of people because for some reason in the United States of America, wearing a mask has become a political statement as opposed to as opposed to anything else. And if you don't want to listen to my podcast or you don't want, follow me on social media because I am trying to promote what Stanford doctors and now subsequent to post the CDC and others have come out, and said masks are GonNa make very big difference, and echoed the point that I had heard from this legendary Stanford Doc. Anyway, the bottom line is this if you don't like me or you don't WanNA listen to podcasts because I'm trying to promote wearing masks in the United States. That's okay. And so I think whatever the issue is. There comes a time in our lives as people and as business leaders where we have to A. be clear about our core values and be stand up for them. Now in addition I think this also goes for employees to. And got to two quick ones for you. On this one attacks Gio that I know was asked recently a all hands meeting, because if you're good tech CEO or frankly, if you're good CEO all, you're having regular communications with your people now for sure and this text. He was asked by some folks in the company whether or not the company was going to stop selling its technology to the US. Government and specifically to the military into law enforcement, because these folks thought that selling technology law enforcement in the military was a bad thing. And you could just tell this was a potential tinderbox. And this? CEO In my opinion, did something legendary, which is make it very clear. That, he believed that selling to the government legally. Is exactly what technology companies should do, and that's what his company is going to continue to do. And you ever noticed that sometimes the unspoken is louder than the spoken. And in this case after making this statement, the CEO the unspoken was very clear is, and if you don't like the fact that are going to sell our technology to our government and our law enforcement and our military, you can go work somewhere else. Now Look you may disagree with me about that. And that's okay I happen to agree with the CEO. I think it is unconscionable that American technology companies who, in a very real way get to exploit for their own profit technologies that were originally pioneered by the American government like the Internet, itself and many other information technology components. That then are created by the government and then commercialized by the private sector to then turn around and say we are not going to sell to our government. That makes me furious. That's just my opinion, so I happen to agree with the CEO, but whether you agree with me or not, the point is critical, which is even when it comes to your people. Sticking to your core values matters recently. We just saw Ford do this. Ford CEO Jim Hackett, in response to employees some employees starting to demand that Ford stop selling its police interceptor, which is the SUV they sell to police forces. He said they're not going to do that. He went further and said it's not controversial that the Ford police interceptor helps officers do their job and again. Did something very similar which is saying? We believe that selling cars to cops is a good thing and we're going to do it, and that is not connected. In any way shape or form cops, having great vehicles is not connected in any way shape or form to any reform that needs to happen in the United States in law enforcement. So where does that? Where does all this leave us? I think whether it's customers or employees or anyone. Now more than ever as individuals and as companies and brands, it's critical that we are clear about our core values, and most importantly that we lived them, you know the last company I was Cmo was called Mercury Interactive. We did not have our core values written down. They were there was no mission statement up on the wall. There were no six words are three words, four words, or whatever stating our core values up. OP painted on the wall. But Mercury more importantly than painting on the wall. Live them. Everybody could tell you what matter at that company. And everybody in the company knew they were empowered to live the core values and execute on those core values as employees of the company, and so I think we wanna be people and we WANNA build companies that are clearly tethered to a set of core values that are understood and ideally are clearly communicated to people. The only thing I would say is. You know there are some companies that will throw the customer under the bus when there's any kind of a dispute between customers and employees, this is one. I would caution you about. Remember that our people are the ones that serve our customers, and if we throw them under the bus, we are going to so bad seeds in our company, and so when there's a conflict when there's a disturbance dispute between an employee and a customer. this may be a controversial thing, but I would tilt towards the employees. First of all get the facts. And then be clear headed, get clear about your core values and check out what did the employees do? And what did the customer do and be very thoughtful about who stand with and who you stand against because if we're creating an environment where core values are clear, and we're trying to empower people to live our core values, and we tell our people that we trust them. We trust their judgment. And ask them to themselves in any situation whether it's with a colleague or a customer or anyone else. What would a legendary person do here? And sometimes the legendary per the legendary thing to do is to tell a customer to take their business elsewhere. The other thing I would share with you is remember the words of American author and philosopher Aldo Leopold who said ethical behavior is doing the right thing when no one else is watching. And of course, we increasingly live in a world where somebody's always watching what we're doing. And in the case of the Bernardus Lodge story I told you about with the racist. Really CEO That video was seen by over a million people, and so wherever we are in the world today there's probably somebody with a phone who can plus press record and capture us being a great person or racist asshole.

I am your host Sarah, and we have all kinds of trending events and videos in stories to share today. The first is this adorable video of a baby chatting with his dad that has been popping up all over my social media. I have seen it so many times posted by various people, and I can understand why because it is cute. It is really, really sweet. And look. Up a little more information since I just saw the video and found out that it is actually a video of comedian DJ prior talking with his son, Kingston Jere, who is eighteen months, old and DJ is watching. Dad is watching the season or the season. Finale of empire? And his son is sitting next to him seeming, like he's watching along and just bad blabbing away, like babies do and then, you know, dad just starts at interacting with him answering questions that maybe have been asked. And so, for instance, they need to work on that right prior says, yes. King segues handedly. Did you understand it though prior asks? No. And you're not getting the full just because not only does he answer. But there's hand gestures and there's facial expressions. And there is babbling of an adorable adorable nature than you know, the baby seems like he asks the question, so prior replies. Owner. Oh, no. Not this one. This is the grand finale of this one, and then Kingston babble something else, and prior answers, it's really, really adorable because they just seem like they're having a conversation and dad's not speaking babytalk. He's not he's easing gauging in, in a conversation with his son and making from a parenting standpoint. The sun is getting what I'm one time with dad. He is being listened to. He's being interacted with at one point. Dad says that's exactly what I was thinking. We think a lot of like, and they're just having this adorable conversation that is sweet. But also, as I said, I love it because it's adorable and it's sweet but also because he is just speaking to Kingston, a normal conversation, kind of, you know, teaching him, the teaching him, the art of communication. One person is speaks another person responds, a you indirect, you're sharing something. You know, they, they happen to be watching a television show. Oh, when they're talking about it. You can't Poon owes what really the baby is thinking, but dad is engaging and it is so adorable. His Prior's wife actually posted the, the video to priors Instagram page, and it has already had about a million shares and nearly two hundred seventy thousand comments on Facebook, and I'm sorry, I actually miss read that it's not on Pryor's Instagram paid his wife didn't post it on the Instagram page, but it is it has been posted. And it's gotten a lot of comments and shares and prior says that his kids do make some special, and humorous, appearances on his Instagram page, the family feel stunned that so many people responded to it. But prior said he knew his son was funny Kingston acts just like him. He is very animated prior who's thirty told today parents, he takes after me if you haven't seen this video, it's really adorable. It's not very long. It's really cute. So as I mentioned prior is a comedian he lives in Tennessee. And when he's at home, apparently Kingston follows him around the house, and does everything daddy, does when he's working on a stand up at prior holds a microphone, if he puts the Mike down Kingston picks up and does his own routine. I'm thinking they should video that because I'd watch. Prior said he's walking around and imitating in the stand up and he goes, he he at the end. It is so funny to him. He keeps doing that until other people have that wouldn't be hard. I don't think that I would have trouble laughing. One one tweet that I really thought was funny said, this is the best babies all the other babies are cancelled on or the other babies. Don't need to be cancelled. Very sweet. And it's gotten a lot of positive feedback. Some people are saying, you know. That's right. Start the conversation bonding early and another wrote that baby. Boy is going to be as cute with as much personality as his sweet daddy, precious. And prior said he and Kingston chat so often that sometimes he forgets Kingston is a toddler. He doesn't see himself as a baby. I don't see him as a baby. He said. So very, very sweet while pressure prior isn't surprised everyone loves Kingston he feels a little pressure. Thanks to his gregarious son. We made a joke. He said, I have been chasing this dream of making it as, as this famous actor and comedian for sixteen years, and Kingston's walking around, like damned. Add it to sixteen years. It only took me one. Well, at least he has a sense of humor about his son sense of humour at any rate like I said, if you haven't seen the video, you should definitely check it out because it really is adorable. Let's turn our attention now to some sports and celebrity trending news. And that is the that game three of the NBA finals was on, on Wednesday night, and beyond say, and husband. Jay z were in. Attendance is, of course, the Golden State Warriors versus the Toronto Raptors the Toronto Raptors worse. Success one twenty three to one zero nine making them two games up to one over the Golden State Warriors. This was the first game to be held in Oakland during the series. So apparently beyond say and Jay Z's showed up partway through the first quarter and of course, made social media just kind of explode. That's pretty much what they do. Right. They. They arrived as I said, a few minutes in to the first quarter and caused a bit of a frenzy, they were seated next to Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lakoba on the court. And, you know, be Jay Z's just in a sweatshirt and Beyonce as dressed in the amazingly, fabulous gold, concoction that I'd not even sure I can describe to you, but it's, it's very beyond say, and it can't think that I would wear that to a basketball game. But what do I know? I'm not Beyonce's. It is. It is very impressive. I mean if you're if you're looking to make an entrance this outfit will do it. She was also wearing gold heels, and she accessorized with a by far leather clutch purse neither of them wore jerseys for a specific team though beyond cited work goal, so that could probably provide a hint, as to who they were rooting for they do attend. Several busboy games per year. I saw several mentions of this being a date night for the couple. Not sure if that is actually true or not. But not a pad, not a bad thing to have a date night for get dressed up, and go hang out at the NBA finals. Speaking of Jay z. He is, he's had a pretty interesting. We himself as he is officially hip hop. First billionaire, according to Forbes, and this is from NBC news. The Brooklyn rapper and mogul, whose real name is Sean Carter has amassed a fortune worth one billion dollars. According to Forbes, making him one of only a handful of entertainers to become a billionaire and the first hip hop artist to do. So his sprawling business empire includes stakes in liquor art real estate and big name, companies like Uber. He has won twenty two Grammys, which is amazing. He's launched his own brands. He has his own clothing label called Rocca wear, which was sold to iconic for more than two hundred million and twenty two thousand seven sorry. I should have said he launched his own clothing label. Is so the, the, the relatively short list of entertainment industry. Billionaires also includes Star Wars, creator, George Lucas, Oscar award winning director Steven Spielberg media mogul Oprah at Oprah Winfrey. Excuse me, Oprah Winfrey and retired NBA star Michael Jordan in this was according to a list published last year. By Forbes, Forbes said it calculated the artists net worth by evaluating his positions in private companies, adding his income, and subtracting a quote healthy amount to account for a superstar lifestyle. The magazine added that it ran its numbers by outside by outside, experts to make sure it's estimates were fair and conservative, so interesting. Yeah, I guess it's not like they just go knock on someone's door and say, hi can we have your financial records? We'd like to write about you being a billionaire. Jay z is forty nine they officially became a billion dollar pair in two thousand seventeen with a combined net worth of more than one point one six billion dollars beyond say who is thirty seven has an individual net worth of more than three hundred fifty million, according to Forbes calculations the hip hop star who comes closest to Jay z is Diddy with an estimated net worth of eight hundred and twenty five million in twenty fourteen. It was thought that Dr dre would snag that first hip hop artist billionaire spot when his beats company was sold apple for more than three billion dollars. But Forbes estimated his net worth at the time would have been almost eight hundred million saying capital gains taxes, would eat a big chunk so well, congrats to Jay z for being that for hitting that milestone and being the first hip hop artist to do so. It is now time to take our first break of the podcast. I do want to talk to you, as I said about care of that.

Merrin morris? Luke Bryan and an all-star Tanya. Tucker rendition of delta don's. So it sounds like it was quite the production and congratulations to all the winners segue into something completely unrelated. At least I can't figure out how I'm sure there's a segue that could be made. But my brain is just not capable of making it right now, tomorrow is national Donut day. I I've seen people already posting about this on social media. I follow Sandra Boynton who writes children's books, you may have read them. If you have small children, who like to read, she's, she's got regular children's book, she's board books, and she is a wonderful illustrator, and I love her, and she is very active on social media and all. Posts. I frequently know what random holiday is coming up, because she will post on it in this post has think it was an elephant. She draws all kinds of really cute. Animal animal. Illustrations, in this one was crumbs all over and something like donuts. No, I, I haven't seen your donuts donuts. So, yes. Tomorrow is national Donut day. I know that Dunkin donuts usually has some kind of promotion going on. I think I read it was you by any beverage there. You will get a free Donut. Probably lots of other places have specials or possibly free Donut. So you should definitely look into that. If you are a Donut fan if you I don't fan, what is your favorite Donut, I am maple bar all the way, which is really funny. I love chocolate. Chocolate anything almost except when it comes to donuts, and I do not like chocolate doughnuts. I don't like the frosting that is on a chocolate frosted Donut. Nope. Just don't like it so snap. Snapper. Been my favorite. I have always been a maple bar fan. I've always been loyal to my maple bar. Love when it comes to doughnuts. I like maple bars. I will eat the round frosted maple doughnuts in a pinch, but I would prefer a maple bar. Thank you very much. I recently learned, although my mother says that I had them as a child about something called cream sticks. They're called a bunch of other things depending on territory, depending on where you live. My mom said they were called something different where we or I grew up in Montana and cannot remember what she said where my husband grew up in Ohio. They're called cream sticks. It is a maple bar filled with cream. Yeah. So you get just get all sorts of flavors going on. You get the maple frosting. You get the get the doughnut you get the fried the fried bread, and you get a cream filled inside what more could you ask I still think I am a basic maple bar kind of girl. Though. So I'm going to stick with that may, lavar, but in fact tomorrow is national Donut day. So just trying to give you a heads up. In case you wanna go out and get yourself a Donut on your way to work or class or hanging out with friends or whatever it is you're going to do tomorrow. I don't know your life. But maybe it will involve donuts. I think I need a Donut now she look into that. In case donuts aren't you're saying tomorrow is also chocolate ice cream day I'm down with that. Maybe doughnuts and chocolate ice cream. It's also fish and chips day. Hey, there you go. All of June is candy month as well as pride month so tomorrow, June so you can eat donuts, you can eat chocolate ice cream, you can eat fish and chips. And then you may just throw up from eating all of that. But tomorrow, it was also VCR day, and I don't know why VCR day, but let's look and see what this says, obviously many of us grew up with VCR's many of us grew up with whatever precluded or jeez. Whatever was before. Four VCR's, many of you have never used a VC, but it was first being developed in the fifties, which I did not know but very popular, of course in the eighties, if you have VHS VHS tapes, maybe should dig them out tomorrow and, and, and celebrate that way, while you're eating your chocolate ice cream your donuts, and your. Fish and chips. You can have a very lazy couch day, watching your VCR watching your VHS tapes, and eating a bunch of food that is really not terribly good for you. Enjoy. I think I'm that note, we're gonna go ahead and take our second break of the podcast. When we come back, we will have some news from the world of social media platforms. So stay tuned.

You're just talking about the fact that tomorrow is national doughnut day and chocolate ice cream date and fish and chip day. And VA VCR day. I mean. You can be busy tomorrow. If you really want to, but in terms of social media news that is about actually social media platforms rather than what is being posted upon them and trending it cetera. We will turn now to Snapchat that has recently introduced games. It announced its new snap games platform at its partners summit back in April. And now it has announced the first big game for the platform with a new group shooter along similar lines to fortnight from farm, farmville creators, Inga. So, before we get into the story, a little more I'm curious, do you do you play games on Snapchat? I have not yet I looked at a little bit, but I haven't really done much with it. I spend more time kinda fussing around with the lenses and those sorts of things haven't really gotten into playing games on Snapchat, but I may have to look into it a little bit more anyway. This new game is called tiny royale and it pits. You and groups of your friends against others in similar style to other group shooter games as reported by tech crunch players can choose custom characters and form squads with friends or battle alone for quick two minute rounds together, loot and shoot. Their way to victory up to thirty. Players can battle at a time in teams of up to four the game play is much the same as other battle royale, games with maps shrinking and size until only one player or team remains. So it sounds like the game will offer trophies and rewards. There are plans for league play and more in the hopes that it catches on with the growing gaming crowd. There's going to be options for enga- messaging and interaction with view to boosting on platform in engagement. The addition of games on Snapchat probably makes a lot of sense, given the apps younger audience, for, which gaming has become a key, interactive element matching that with the addictive elements of Zinger games, which have seen Zinger achieved significant success on Facebook could be a great move for snap as it looks to attract more users, and more importantly, keep the users it does have on platform for longer. If it's exceeds it could become a major element. In snaps gross strategy, making it more attractive platform for advertisers and driving. New ad options through game related promotions. Again. The game is called tiny tiny royale, excuse me. And it is available on Snapchat now. So I'm curious. If anyone has tried what you think of it, if it's something that you can see yourself playing if you like the sort of game you know with the battling other teams and joining in and having that be interactive in that way, if it's even something that you think of in relationship to Snapchat. Do you go on Snapchat to play games? Or do you just use it for this naps and the lenses and the stories it cetera? I'd be curious to hear your thoughts. So speaking of gaming and social media, it is becoming bigger, all the time and Facebook is, of course, very interested in being able to tap into that growth potential with gamer related product, offering and offerings and tools aligned with the expansion of the new east sports shift. So this is an article from June fifth twenty nineteen and well hopefully from twenty nineteen but it was. Unify this articles from June fifth nineteen fifty seven sorry feeling we'll silly today. Anyway, over the last few years. Facebook has rolled out a slew of game related tools and products including livestream tipping for gamers, and the, the capacity to stream via desktop overlaid on gameplay footage. Facebook also launched its gaming creator platform last year which takes aim at the dominance of YouTube and twitch providing new tools to help gaming broadcasters, build their following on social net on the social network. Which, again, makes me ask do you play games on Facebook? I don't think I ever have. So I cannot speak to that. But Facebook, according to this article has a long way to go to catch up with those two leading game platforms. But given the the rising popularity and potential add value of gaming game, streaming, it does make sense for Facebook to use it scale to draw in more. Game related content this week Facebook has released a new set of insights, from a recent survey conducted into emerging cultural shifts in gaming, which not instantly highlight the rising importance of social elements in gaming engagement, the insights provided some new consideration for those looking to launch promotions. In the gaming sector. You can read Facebook's full understanding the quest for new console gaming content report online, or you can check out, you can I'm sure you could find highlights of that. If you don't wanna read the entire thing. But some, some of the stats from this report seventy seventy percent of eighteen to thirty four year olds surveyed are open to playing new console game genres when playing with friends or family sixty four percent of the eighteen to thirty four year old surveyed say that playing with friends or meeting. New people is what makes gaming great and fifty one percent of eighteen. To thirty four year old console gaming buyers survey agree that Facebook and other social networking sites are great ways to learn about new games. So there's lots of statistics in this report, there's lots of different types of. Elements that are being looked at, for instance, some where does Facebook fit in while fifty seven percent of the eighteen to thirty four year old console game buyers say the Facebook family of apps helps them. Discover new console games while fifty six percent. Say of those same console game buyers surveyed say that advertisements on their social media feeds their social feeds help to discover new game. So of the people surveyed a lot of them, actually. Learn new about new games cetera from Facebook. So it makes sense that Facebook is trying to tap into that to get more interaction from that eighteen to thirty four year old crowd draw them into gaming. And once again, I have to ask you, have you. Have you played games on Facebook? A guess would be a good question. Have you played games on Snapchat or alternatively? What are your favorite social media platforms to play games on when you want to play them, socially? How do you go about that? What are your favorite ways of learning about new games? And do you like that? Interactive element of the social media platforms, where you can meet, quote unquote meet because you're not face to face, but meet new people in those ways, be interested to hear what you have to say about gaming and social media.

Run after months of speculation. The band finally announced their reunion in October. Twenty nineteenth scheduled for twenty twenty. Now with the grammys tribute and his posthumous grammy wins. I thought it would befitting to do a history lesson on nipsy hustle. Earning a Grammy Nomination for his critically acclaimed twenty eighteen debut view victory lap. nipsy hustle was at the peak of his career when he was murdered a year later in March two thousand nineteen following his death. Public outpouring helped to push five of his efforts onto the billboard two hundred and also resulted in the renaming of an intersection of Slauson in Kershaw. In honor of the fallen rapper he adopted his stage name from iconic black comedian actor Nipsy Russell Slauson braid airman's acid dom built an early following following. That made his rap style reminiscent of Snoop Dogg and ice tea. Nip was once a full fledged member of one of the most notorious subsections of the CRIPS crips gang. Hustle was a man of the streets and became a quick mix tape favorite in the late two thousands with his gritty street observations. Starting with Slauson boy in two thousand five. The rapper issued a trio of bullets. Ain't got no name volumes in two thousand eight and two thousand nine before moving onto onto the marathon and its sequel in two thousand eleven. His eighth official mix tape crenshaw arrived in twenty thirteen drawing attention. Fords one hundred dollar price tag. It still broke into the top forty of the billboard heat seekers Chart Mellberg's money was released on that last day the of twenty fourteen in featured Rick Ross and among many other respected Street wrappers in two thousand sixteen. Hustle teamed up with Weiji for the anthem F. D. T. E F donald trump which peaked at number fifty on the hot rb hip hop songs charts the following year hustle returned to his own material with still which road a sample of Dr. dre still dray that same year. He issued slauson boy volume two featuring Mazi young thug Dave Snoop Dogg Young Dolph and more a collaborative effort with Beano Redo. No pressure arrived before the year's end in early twenty eighteen hustle issued his official debut full length victory lap which featured guest Lake Weiji. Puff Daddy Kendrick Lamar the dream ceelo green in more the set debuted in the top five of the billboard two hundred and was later nominated it for best rap album at the sixty first grammy awards. The critically acclaimed set would be his only official album release on March thirty first twenty nineteen. Hustle was gunned down outside his marathon clothing store in Los Angeles. He was thirty three years old. Following a significant vacant public outpouring for the fallen rapper including condolences sent from President Barack Obama the marathon crenshaw mailbox money and slauson awesome boy volume to all made their debuts on the US album chart while victory lap return to the billboard two hundred peaking at number two to honor hustles contributions to the community. The city announced that the intersection of Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard would be named Aramis Nipsy Hustle Aussie Dom Square January Twenty Twenty hustles legacy was honored tribute at the sixty second grammy awards where he also received served the post humorous nominations which resulted in two wins. You know my heart. It's still sad over newsies passing the tragic way that his life was taken. It's one something to have an accident like I don't know I mean just thinking about Kobe. In nipsy nipsy and just Sunday it was just a really heavy and just lake. Rip Night and is tragic is. This is Kobe's passing in his daughter's passing in everyone that was on board an accident. I think it's a little bit just a little bit easier. Easier to wrap my head around pat an accident versus someone murdering another human being just blatantly. Only taking someone's life away with no regard. Just there's video footage. We literally saw Nipsy Hustle. Aw Get gunned down. And it wasn't enough. That Lake Home Shot Nip Nip. Went down late homey just ran off. I'm found arm. Really WanNA say his name but it was reported that like nip has said something like you got me in do comes back and shoots him and that was the final. That was the death bullet. I loved Nev- I totally respect him. there's there's no replacing him him and that's the sad thing. He was doing so much for his community. He was doing things that nationally other communities could replicate and I still some to some degree. I know things are still going on. There's still the neighborhood nip foundation that the money from his Including line proceeds are going to go to but nothing is ever really the same as when the creator the heart of it it is living in putting fair heart into it and I just pray that all of his efforts continue I pray for the marathon clothing line. I Pray Crave Lauren for his grandmother. His mother his his entire family. Everyone who still trying to keep this marathon going because yes the marathon continues Tinubu's and my prayer is that it continues forever. I definitely appreciate your time.

New Music Friday: The Top 7 Albums Out On April 2

"Jesse thorn on this week's bullseye. Christopher lloyd the back to the future star tells me why he's so enjoyed haunting nightmares for thirty years as but i i love. It has to be that nasty. Put that little squeaky little shoe. The dip bullseye for maximum fund dot org. Npr happy friday everyone from npr music. And all songs considered. I'm steven thompson. New music friday and for april second. We've got albums by leslie. Jordan flock of dimes. Godspeed you black emperor and more but first up nasty cherry and their new ep. The movie few six six. That's six six six from the movie. The new ep by the band. Nasty cherry for those. Who don't know nasty cherry. It's four women from l. a. Part of a reality tv show called. I'm with the band Basically the singer. Charlie wanted to build and mentor the kind of band. She wishes she could have grown up. Idolising joining us from atlanta to talk about nasty cherry is writer and co host of the bottom of the map podcast christina christina high. Even it's a great to have you here so tell. Tell me. More about nasty cherry. Charlie gets to play the role of impresario. Which is really refreshing. Because you know instead of having a simon cowl or perlman essentially guess. What teenagers actually want. Charlie just gets back to what she wanted to listen and to hear When she was coming up at age fourteen. And so i think the initial influence or the initial touchstone for nasty cherry was something like the runaways for sure and i think the image makes that totally clear. But you know as we're hearing with this ep or sound is clearly diversified since then. Yeah it doesn't sound like charlie. It's not maybe as aggressive as i would have expected a band with a name like nasty cherry to sound But it's a little bit of a slower burn. The night expected. Yeah absolutely with the lead single her body. Charlie has writing credits. They're one of her trademarks. I guess is that rather than turning the song into a song to really mope too because the song is about being cheated on charlie ex. The ex basically pushed the group to be like no make this raw. Make this real. What would you like. Get a little bit spiteful. Here and so. That's how you get lyrics. That are like well. I'm a be better in bed. Which i think is really great comes off as more of like a juicy secret than something. That's kind of yelled in all caps. Which i think is charlie's trademark. I think in part. That's due to the lead. Singer's voice gabriel back dell is really interesting because she was a model essentially before she started singing this group of but she has his voice. That's really naturally romantic and wistful and a little bit sultry. So the delivery is a little bit sneakier. I think yeah. I just listened to this and i think mission accomplished in terms of the kind of band that i want my daughter to fall in love with this band i want. I want people to get to hear bands like this. Instead of i mean lou lou pearlman managed to put together some some good artists but i would much rather have charlie mentoring the bands that my kids listened to. I mean just always beware of the women who managed to pull off a mullet. I tried to that when i was a teenager. I was inspired by karen. O of the. Yeah yeah yeah's and i mean nasty. Cherry definitely has that same sort of like confidence and bravado issues. That like it's just not fair. Because i never could. I never okay. Well you know the fans can give something to aspire too. So that's nasty cherry. Their debut ep is called the movie christina. I want you to stick around for our next pick mellow music group. It's a hip hop label with a great new compilation full of rising stars and veterans. It's called bushido baggy pants. Stylish them to manage stuck in the third game. A problem napster. I'm just glad tat chest us. Walking on the path still houses. That's one of the last Featuring the hip hop duo marlow from a new compilation called bushido a plays kind of like a label sampler for mello music group but there are larger themes at work throughout this record christina. Who brought this to my attention. Tell me about bushido so bushido is not mellow music. Groups first compilation. I mean the label has been around since essentially two thousand eight with the rapper. Odyssey being sort of a flagship artists. I think if anything while the labels core sound has clearly diversified from the days when it was clearly inspired by raucous records and this really idealized version of what nineties hip hop sounded like the core. Ethos of this label's still remains to honor and dignify. I think the middle class rapper. You know somebody who just wants lyricism them to beat their tricks of the trade without feeling like they re. I guess resort to like this rags to gold chains narrative. Yeah i was just really taken. By how cohesive and consistent this record is i mean given how many rappers and producers kind of weave in and out over the course of the record. You've got open. Mike eagle who have loved for longtime homeboy sandman. Who's great georgia and moldova. Who we've talked about on this show before murders kool keith. You mentioned odyssey. I really loved marlow. Marlow was kind of a discovery for me The rapper solemn brigham and producer l'orage solemn. Brigham just jumps out with this flow. That's the track that we heard. I just fell in love with it right away. Yeah there's a lot of newcomers that i think are going to be forced to reckon with I was really looking forward to hearing from mir blade He is out of nashville and his mello music group. Debut last year affiliates. Traveling circus was like this soul force sci-fi so wanted to hear how he was going to hold up to like all these like bona fide lyricists. And let me tell you like he could kill a feature. I love hearing him in this context. Where all he was concerned with which is bars. Yeah this record is terrific. I have really fantastic showcase for this label and yeah like we said i mean there are. There are old favorites but there are new discoveries kind of peppered throughout so that's bushido a new compilation from the label. Mello music group. Thanks so much for joining us christina. Thanks for having me stephen. Let's go next to feed drian young and ali shaheed muhammad. They're back with the latest entry in their jazz dead series. It's a collaboration with saxophonist. Gary bartz called jazz is dead at six two. That's spiritual aviation from adrian. Young ali shaheed muhammad and gary bartz. Their new album is called jazz. Is dead six joining me to talk about the record from his home office in philadelphia. Is john morrison a writer and host of serious rap shit and culture. Cypher radio john. Thanks for joining me. Hey thanks for having me steven. That's great to have you so adrian. Young is an arranger and producer. He does a lot of tv and film work. He made this incredible record earlier. This year called the american. Negro ali shaheed muhammad is a producer best known as a member of a tribe called quest. He also full disclosure used to work with npr music on great podcast called microphone. Check john. Tell me about this new record. This record is gorgeous. It's interesting to for the past a few years adrian. Young and ali muhammad have been working on this series. Jazz is did where basically they act as a backing band or or co-conspirators. With a different elder jazz musician. They did a really doe project with roy ayers they came out recently they did one with doug carn and under. This jazz is dead banner. The latest like you said is a featuring the saxophonist. Gary bartz and is really gorgeous. In a lot of it reminds me of some of the older early to mid seventies stuff that gary bartz was doing this kind of fusion between hardcore jazz fusion and Electric jazz with this underlying spiritual feel to it. Is it's really just a beautiful record. A lot of it does tippett's hat to those Older records in that period of the seventies but it very much feels like a contemporary jazz record as well i love the way. The series is just kind of shining a light on musicians who are still around and still making music but aren't necessarily getting the shine that they used to get. If you look at gary bartz discography my god. I mean he's worked with mccoy. Tyner max roach and art blakey and the jazz messengers and miles davis but then you look at his discography and those records kind of come out less and less frequently and it's just nice to hear him here. You know with just the full support of this great band and together. They make this music. That is so kind of spacey and cool vibe and atmospheric at the same time i love. This record is very much a celebration of gary bartz as a musician As a figure in jazz and black music in general but it also showcases that he's still a really strong instrumentalist. You know what i mean like. His playing is so strong throughout this. He has this bright tone on the saxes. homo psyche. Sing into you. Which is something that you know. If you know his older records it very much feels the same is that and the arrangements here are incredible adrian. Young you know as you said in your intro. He's known for that for taking. You know these compositions and adding this instrumentation relief fleshes out. The compositions and i would have to say ali. Muhammad you know. I grew up in hip hop so i know him as a dj producer. Like you said a member of a tribe called quest but listen to this record is really interesting to me in his stuck out that he's really developed as intellect agreed bass player as well. You know what. I mean his tone some of it. It kind of reminds me of carol. Kaye like his playing throughout this record His tone lega said the way that he freezes. His ideas are really unique and distinct. And when you add that with how. Gary bartz playing and the arrangements from adrian young it really kind of coalesce into this beautiful whole. That's it nods to the past but it's its own unique thing. yeah that's adrian. Young and ali shaheed muhammad. Their new album with gary bartz is called. Jazz is dead sixth. Thanks so much for joining me john though. Thanks steven next up is leslie jordan. The actor and singer leslie. Jordan has a new album called companies. Come in Phone if i was. I tell you what i think. I've quit by lot building and off off those of bomb go again. Don't tell you what i do. It'd be hard to quit drinking into a learning plan. That's working on a building from leslie jordan. His new album is companies. Come in that song features guest performances by charlie worship and the great ashley. Mcbride joining me from nashville to talk about leslie. Jordan is our pal. Julie hi julie welcome. Hey thanks for having me. It's always a pleasure. Julie i have to say i knew leslie jordan as an actor. He won an emmy for a recurring role on will and grace. He's been kind of like an instagram sensation. I didn't really think of him or know him as a musician. And this gospel record is a is a delight. I think you are. You're right about that. We can acknowledges right at the top leslie. Jordan has not been known as a music maker. I mean he. Although there are things that he has done with his different and recently social media roles that have to do with music or even the role that he played in that you know cult favorite films. Sordid lives brother boy where he performs tammy wynette songs in drag you know so i think for that reason although i would usually give serious serious side i to an actor making you know indulging in the making of an album in this case i really feel like it's an extension of all of these different roles in personas that people associate with him and i feel like i don't really think of it as fitting into the familiar categories for album approaches. You know it's not. It's not so much about statement making or self expression or you know establishing pop cultural importance. This is more of. I received this as a combination of tent revival of bluegrass pick and party musical theater and a drag gospel brunch. You know this is also a larger attempt to kind of reclaim gospel music as a place for queer people. Yeah i think for him. I mean he grew up in the modest sized tennessee city of chattanooga. He grew up southern baptists and he jokes even in some of his banter during these songs that he was baptized thirteen or fourteen times because he was worried that it didn't take you know. I mean that's that's tragicomic. You know material right there because the job is he didn't think it would take because he knew that he was gay you know and he was growing up in a religious tradition. That was sending homophobic messages. You know over and over and over again. But i mean the songs that he's chosen. Most of these are older songs. There are a few new compositions that are written by his producers. Travis howard in danny myrick. But i really love you know that. He chose all of these old songs. That are really sentimental and pining for the comfort of this idea of being in another world in an existence beyond pain and kind of. I mean there's a melancholy element to that to feeling out of place. But i mean on on the track that that you played where he's singing with asha mcbride and charlie worsham. Those are excellent accomplished vocalists. And here he is playing as as you said a little bit of a of a ringmaster or kind of invoking those preachers. That can't really sing but jump in on the action and kind of line out the lyrics and spur people on a little bit of that. But also i mean he's playing a little bit of a rube persona like there's a great tradition and in country comedy or he hall or the grand ole opry or you know all these different examples of of that kind of exaggeratedly heartfelt but it's supposed to be untrained kind of singing and he does some of that but there's definitely a theatricality to it. I love here in saying with Tanya tucker and with morgan stapleton and chris stapleton dolly parton brandy. Oh yeah dolly parton brandi carlile absolutely. It feels to me like a like a celebration of certain kind of you know. White southern queer gospel loving but church shunned Experience and identity like. I said it's something that you could also experience a in drag gospel brunch. I mean i don't know if they have those all over the country. But i certainly have been to a bunch and you may not know this but i'm also part of a very very dirty country and gospel drag show and we have incorporated a few adapted versions of the songs that leslie jordan does on this album. I cannot quote our version. See you there too dirty julie. I learned something new about you every day. So yeah that's companies. Come in the warm and wonderful new album by leslie jordan jewelry. Stick around for a second. We still have a handful of other records that we want to play for new music friday. But first let's take a quick break support for npr and the following message come from better. Help offering online counseling better help therapists hassle. Joe explains the importance of creating a safe space for therapy. I can't tell you how many times i've had clients that. Say that expression like. I've never told that to anybody. That's when i know. I've made some kind of momentous move with this person. They feel safe enough to expose that part of themselves and doing that together with somebody also can be very powerful to get matched with a counselor within forty eight hours and save ten percent. Go to better help dot com slash songs. It's new music. Friday from npr. And all songs considered. I'm stephen thompson and we are looking at the best new albums out april second. We're gonna kick off the second half of our show with flock of dimes. Flock of dimes is back with a great new record. Called head of roses. a That's price of blue from flock of dimes. New second full length album head of roses flock of dimes as a solo project for gen wachner. Whose one half of the wonderful band wi oak. A flock of dimes started out as kind of a pop side project. Gen wachner julia fuck dimes. Fan right i am. I love hearing gen pudding. a more. Specific particularized vanished point in the songs that she writes. You know for for this side project. I just feel like we get to see another side of her perspective and her songcraft. And that is it's kind of a casual profundity To her vantage point that. I hear even on a song like to on this album. Julie you mentioned casual profundity. I think that's a good That's a good phrase for it. I mean this is an album about heartbreak. It's a it's a break-up record. That is really trying to look at the story of a break-up from both sides and kind of understanding how everyone hurts and i think that maturity and forgiveness and sense of empathy really helps fuel this records warmth. I have really loved pretty much. Everything john wosner is don but i will say one thing that i really love about this record you know why oak has evolved from kind of stormy rock band with lots of big guitars to incorporate more of the synthesizers of her work and flock of dimes. And i think listening to flock of dimes. Now it's starting to move back toward that y oke sound a little bit. You heard at the top of the song. The return of these kind of billowy guitars. And i think that's a really welcome sound and it still sounds like flock of dimes. And not wow oke. This record was co produced by nick. Sanborn from sylvan esso in genoa's new hometown of durham north carolina. And both of them really know their way around making synth pop incredibly warm and welcoming. So that's jen. Wosner and her project flock of dimes. A flock of dimes. New album called head of roses. Thanks so much for joining me. Julie you are so welcome. Next up is dry cleaning the band. dry cleaning. Has a new album called new long leg. Many john was fully consoles the world. Don't send me keep comes come hyphen conflict council. It'll be dismissed for sandwich. Me ceramic shoe of hunting smash email. Come to come to two dogs. Come to join come to hand with my own. Water short sessions. Tokyo bouncy bazzi titian inconsequential. These folks do every taking famous scotch. That's scratch-card lanyard by the band. Dry-cleaning joining me to talk about dry cleaning from his home in washington. Dc is npr. Music's own resident liking. laura's got rich. Hey lars hey steven dry cleaning. It's a post punk band from london. New long leg is their first full length album. Tell me about dry cleaning. They put out a couple. Ep's a couple years ago and they kinda mixed the moody atmosphere like broadcast and had kind of like mutant post-punk roofs a pylon. So they death lake checked off a couple of boxes for me and then there is florence. Shaw who doesn't so much sing as speak with this disaffected tone and she has a way of saying whereas kinda make you question their meeting or change the image of what they being our mind. That contrast is really striking on those eps but maybe not sustainable for a full. And so this new record solves that problem with cadence. I think not just from florence. Shaw's delivery but also how the bent interacts with space. Yeah it's interesting. You talk about that kind of speaking. And yes she speaks ing but her voice has this warm quality to it. It doesn't feel emotionless or detached. Still feels approachable. And i it was. It was interesting. I listened to a few songs on this record before it even occurred to me that she's not technically singing the way that she plays with words. gives the effect of singing so like the way she says chocolate. Chip cookie is absolutely delightful. But also makes you turn around the phrase in your head chocolate chip cookie chocolate chip cookie way. What does she mean like. I was saying the way that they play with space. The band really rummages through these long breaks silence that allows to come like ruminate on the things that florence is speak singing and return offer like this clattering respond so in some ways record reminds me more of sonic youth than the ps did. But you know that not so delicate balance of noise and melody but this record is also so so lush can really get lost and the stranger textures of it. Yeah it's quotable to. I mean that song that we heard scratch-card lanyard kind of leads to this killer. Line do everything and feel nothing which is just and that's a that's a phrase you can really work with. Put it on your twitter bio done. So that's new. Long leg by dry-cleaning larson. I have one more record to get on this week's new music friday but before that i wanna do a quick lightning round of a few other records were recommending. This week the pop star and actress demi levato has been extremely candid in interviews. She's talked a lot about her mental health and her battles substance abuse. She has a new album out today. It takes that candor and spins it into big and bold very dramatic pop songs. That record is called dancing with the devil the art of starting over bryce destler one of the famous desktop brothers from the national and other projects. He's got a gorgeous new album with the australian string quartet. that's called impermanent disintegration. The four ad label turned forty last year there. Now celebrating by having some of their current bands perform classic four. Ad song you get big thief performing readers song aldus harding performing a deer hunter song and so on really nice stuff in there. That's called bills and and blues jazz dope. Hilarion includes some major players like bassist. William parker drummer elvin fiedler and kid jordan on saxophone. They've got a terrific new album of like really frenetic and exciting new jazz. That's called the bond. Hey king is the duo of natalie. London and taylor plessey. Their music is raw and rousing personal and really builds into these big grand loud feelings. Their new self titled album was produced by ben harper. And finally no boy is an intriguing project from a guy named julian saporito who plays folk rock music while incorporating his own family history of surviving the vietnam war. It's a project that is kind of academic at its roots but very emotionally powerful sonically. It's kinda got echoes of andrew. Bird noboa's new album is called nine thousand nine hundred seventy five and that's out today We've got one last album on this week's show godspeed you. Black emperor is back with a new album. Called god's p at states A woman That's our side has to win for d. h. From godspeed you black emperor. Their new album is called. God's p yes godspeed. It's god's p. and then in parentheses at states end godspeed you black emperor from montreal. They've been putting out records on and off. Since nineteen ninety-seven. Those records are very intense and unwieldy mostly instrumental sometimes with very unnerving found audio often. They're accompanied with these kind of radical political manifestos. This is their seventh album lars. Hit me with two thoughts on cod. Speed you black emperor. I wasn't sure how is gonna feel about this record. Because here's a band. Due to their own making are not has always been described as a soundtrack to the apocalypse. Well a last year and a half has been Pretty terrible and you know when Godspeed announced this album. They said this record is about. All of us. And i was like. I don't know that i can. That feels so those you know. It's just like here's suspend that. I've been listening to for well over two decades now and they'd certainly occupy a space in my for when i need to be bleak. And here they are. This has been part of their wheelhouse for so long. So i'm like. I don't know how i feel about this that i listen to the record and they admitted that they went back to some old moods. Where a listen to shortwave radio. Which is what. They did on their early albums. Used field recordings to cut up like set a tone. And they said the apocalyptic preachers were still there but they were saying in times now instead of in time soon and that stuff is out there but the thing that i have found in listening not only to god godspeed but kind of like understanding where they come from is that there's always of light in the darkness. There's always a little hope so the track that you just played. That's the hope at the end of the album. Their arrest the record contained these longer pieces that are gone. Nineteen and twenty minutes long and they definitely cycle through some familiar modes for people who've been listening to godspeed for a long time so grand orchestral gestures and scored by some by some heavy riffing every now and again and it's all sorrow phone side but also at that can triumphant. This almost feels like their spaghetti western album like twang to it. There's a little bit of twain to it. There's a little bit more dust. There's a little bit more grit than i've heard in the music and it felt a little best like of rock band tried to do their best gavin bryers impression and instead an ensemble of really figuring out where they fit into twenty twenty one. That's god's p at states end the new album from godspeed. You black emperor. That'll do it for new music. Friday thanks so much for joining us lars.

I have seen it so many times posted by various people and I can understand why because it is. Cute, it is really really sweet and looked up a little more information. Since I just saw the video and found out that it is actually video of comedian DJ. Prior talking with his son, Kingston, who is eighteen months old and. DJ is watching. The DAD is watching the season finale or the season finale of empire, and his son, sitting next to him, seeming like he's watching along and just as bad labeling away like babies do, and then you know Dad's starts at interacting with him, answering questions that maybe you've been asked, and so for instance they need to work on that right prior, says yes, king surgeries. Did you understand it? Though prior asks no, you're not getting the full of it. Because not only does he answer, but there's hand gestures, and there's facial expressions, and there is babbling of an adorable adorable nature. Then you know. The baby seems like he asked the question so prior replies Ono. No, not this one. This is the grand finale of this one and then Kingston Babbel's something else and. Prior answers, it's really really adorable because. They just seem like they're having a conversation and dad's not speaking babytalk. He's not you know he's. He's engaging in conversation with his son and making. From a parenting standpoint, the sun is getting one on one time with dad. He's being listened to He's being interacted with an at one point. Dad says that's exactly what I was thinking. We think a lot of like, and they're just having this adorable conversation that is sweet, but also as I said I love it, because it's adorable and sweet, but also because he is just speaking to Kingston in a normal conversation. It kind of you know teaching him the. Teaching him the art of Communication One person speaks another person responds you interact. You're sharing something you know they. They happen to be watching a television show when they're talking about it. You can't who knows what really the baby is thinking, but dad is engaging, and it is so adorable. His prior's wife posted the the video to priors instagram page, and it has already had a about a million shares in nearly two hundred and seventy thousand comments on facebook I'm sorry I actually.

His wife didn't posted on the instagram page, but it is It has been posted, and it's gotten a lot of comments and shares and prior says that his kids do make some special and humorous appearances on his instagram page. The family feel stunned that so many people responded to it, but prior said he knew his son was funny Kingston ex just like him He's very animated prior. Who's thirty told today parents. He takes after me. If you haven't seen this video, it's really adorable. It's not very long and. It's really cute. So as I mentioned prior is a comedian. He lives in Tennessee, and when he's at home, apparently Kingston follows him around the House and does everything daddy does. When he's working on a stand up at prior holds a microphone if he puts the Mike Down Kingston, picks it up and does his own routine. I'm thinking they should video that because I'd watch. Prior said he's walking around and imitating in the stand up, and he goes he he he at the end. It is so funny to him. He keeps doing that until other people have. That wouldn't be hard. I don't think that I would have trouble laughing One one tweet that I really thought was funny. said. This is the best babies all the other babies or canceled on all the other babies don't need to be canceled. Very sweet and it's gotten a lot of positive feedback. some people are saying you know that's right. Start the conversation bonding. Early m another wrote that baby boy is going to be as cute with as much personality as sweet, Daddy, precious and prior said he and Kingston Chat so often that sometimes he forgets. Kingston is a toddler. He doesn't see himself as a baby I don't see him as a baby, he said. So very very sweet. While pressure prior isn't surprised. Everyone Loves Kingston. He feels a little pressure. Thanks to his gregarious son, we made a joke. He said I have been chasing this dream of making it as as the famous actor and comedian for sixteen years and Kingston's walking around like damn data sixteen years. It only took me one. Well, at least he has a sense of humor about his son sense of humour. At any rate like I said. If you haven't seen the video, you should definitely check it out because it really is adorable. Let's turn our attention now to some sports and celebrity trending news, and that is the the game three of the NBA Finals was on on Wednesday, night, and beyond say and husband. Jay Z were in attendance is of course the Golden State Warriors versus the Toronto Raptors the Toronto. Raptors worse success in twenty, three to one, zero, nine, making them two games up to one over the. Golden State Warriors. This was the first game to be held in Oakland during the series, so apparently beyond say and Jay. Z's showed up. partway through the first quarter, and of course made social media just kind of explode. Pretty much what they do right they. They arrived a few as a few minutes in to the first quarter, and caused a bit of a frenzy, they were seated next to Golden State warriors owner Joe Lakoba on the court and You know be Jay z's just in a sweatshirt and beyonce as dressed in this amazingly fabulous gold concoction that I not even sure I can describe to you, but it's it's very beyond say and it can't. Think that. I would wear that to a basketball game. But what do I know I'm be say. It is it is very impressive I. Mean if you're if you're looking to make an entrance of this outfit will do it. She was also wearing gold heels, and she accessorized with a by far leather clutch purse. Neither of them wore jerseys for a specific team, although beyond cited work goal, so that could probably provide a hint as to who they were rooting for. They do attend several basketball games per year I saw several mentions of this being a date night for the couple, not sure if that is actually true or not, but not a pad, not a bad thing to to have a date night for get dressed up and go hang out at the NBA Finals speaking of Jay z he is, he's had a pretty interesting week himself as he is officially, HIP hops first billionaire, according to Forbes. And, this is from NBC News. I. The Brooklyn Rapper and mogul whose real name is Sean. Carter has asked a fortune worth one billion dollars, according to Forbes making him one of only a handful of entertainers to become a billionaire and the first hip hop artist to do so. his. Sprawling business empire includes stakes in liquor, ART, real estate and big name companies like. He has one twenty two grammys is amazing. He's launched his own brands he has. His own clothing label called Rocca Wear which was sold to iconic for more than two, hundred, million and twenty, two thousand seven Sorry, I should have said he launched his own clothing label is so the the the relatively shortlist of entertainment industry billionaires also includes star, wars creator. George Lucas Oscar Award winning director. Steven Spielberg Media Mogul Oprah at Oprah. Winfrey excuse me Oprah Winfrey and retired NBA star Michael Jordan in this was according to a list published last year by Forbes. Forbes said it calculated the artists Networth by evaluating his positions in private companies, adding up his income and subtracting a quote, healthy amount to account for a superstar lifestyle. The magazine added that it ran its numbers by outside by outside experts to make sure it's estimates were fair and conservative. So interesting. I guess it's not like they just go. Knock on someone's door and say hey. Can we have your financial records? We'd like to write about you being a billionaire. Jay Z is forty nine. They officially became a billion dollar pair in two thousand seventeen with a combined net worth of more than one point, one six billion dollars beyond say who is thirty seven has an individual net worth of more than three hundred, fifty million, according to Forbes calculations, the hip hop star who comes closest to Jay Z is diddy with an estimated net. Net Worth of eight hundred and twenty five million in two thousand fourteen. It was thought that Dr dre would snag that I. Hip hop artist billionaire spot when his beats company was sold to apple for more than three billion dollars, but Forbes rated his net worth at the time would have been almost eight hundred million, saying two gains, taxes would eat a big chunk so. Well. Congrats to Jay. Z for being that for you know hitting that milestone and being the first hip hop artist to do so. It is now time to take our first break of the PODCAST I.

Making it right now. tomorrow is National Donut Day yea I. have seen people already posting about this on social media I follow Sandra Boynton who rates children's books.

Yes, tomorrow is National Donut Day. I know that Dunkin donuts usually has some kind of promotion going on I, think I read. It was few by any beverage there you will get a free doughnut. Probably lots of other places have specials or possibly free donuts, so you should definitely look into that if you are a donut fan, if you a fan, what is your favorite donut I? Am Maple Bar all the way which is really funny. I love chocolate chocolate anything almost except when it comes to doughnuts and I do not like chocolate donuts like the frosting that is. On a chocolate frosted donut, nope, just like it so. It's never been my favorite I have always been a maple bar fan. I've always been loyal to my maple bar. Love when it comes to donuts. I like mabel bars I will eat the round. frosted maple doughnuts in pinch, but I would prefer a maple bar. Thank you very much. I recently learned although my mother says that I had them as a child about something called cream sticks. They're called a bunch of other things depending on territory depending on where you live. My Mom said they were called something different where we or I grew up in Montana and I can't remember what she said. Where my husband grew up in Ohio, they're called cream sticks. It is a maple. Bar filled with. Cream. Yeah, so you get! Just. Get all sorts of flavors going on, you get the maple frosting. You get the Get The donut you get. The Fried Pickles Fried Bread, and you get a cream-filled inside. What more could you ask? I still think I am a basic maple bar kind of girl. Though so I'm going to stick with that Maitland War, but in fact tomorrow is National Donut Day so just trying to give you a heads up in case you WANNA. Go Out and get yourself a donut on your way to work or class or. Hanging out with friends or whatever it is, you're going to do tomorrow I. Don't Know Your Life, but maybe it will involve donuts I think I need a donut now. She's Lookin' about in case, donuts aren't your thing. Tomorrow is also chocolate ice cream. Day I'm down with that. Maybe doughnuts and chocolate ice cream. It's also fish and chips stay. Hey, there. You go all of June candy month as well as pride month so tomorrow, June seventh. You can eat donuts. You can eat chocolate ice cream. You can eat fish and chips, and then you may just throw up from eating all of that, but. Tomorrow. It was also VCR day and I don't know why. It's VCR Day, but let's look and see what the says obviously. Many of us grew up with VCR's. Many of us grew up with whatever precluded. Jeez? Whatever was before VCR's many of you have never used a VCR. But it was first being developed in the fifties with did not know but very popular of course in the eighty S. if you have vhs VHS tapes, maybe you should dig them out tomorrow and and and celebrate that way while you're eating your chocolate ice cream your donuts and your. Fish and chips. You can have a very lazy couch day watching your VCR, watching your VHS tapes and eating a bunch of food. That is really not terribly good for you enjoy.

We're just talking about the fact that tomorrow is National Donut Day and chocolate, ice cream day, and fish and chip day. And VCR Day. You can be busy tomorrow if you really want to calm, but in terms of social media news that is about actually social media platforms rather than what is being posted upon them and trending etcetera. We will turn now to snapchat. That has recently introduced games. It announced its new SNAP GAMES PLATFORM AT ITS PARTNER SLIP BACK in April and now it has announced the first big game for the platform with a new group shooter along similar lines to fortnight from farm. FARMVILLE CREATORS INGA so before we get into the story. A little more I'm curious, do you? Do you play Games on snapchat. I have not yet I looked at a little bit, but I haven't really done much with it I spend more time. Around with the lenses, and those sorts of things haven't really gotten into playing games on Snapchat, but I may have to look into it a little bit more anyway. This new game is called the royal, and it pits you and groups of your friends against others in style to other group shooter Games, as reported by tech crunch players can choose custom characters and form squads with friends or battle alone for quick two minute rounds together loot, and shoot their way to victory up to thirty players can battle at a time in teams of up to four. The game play is much the same as other battle royale games with maps shrinking in size until only one player or team remains. So it sounds like the game will offer trophies and rewards, their plans for league play, and more in the hopes that it catches on with the growing gaming crowd There's going to be options for a messaging interaction with a view to boosting on platform engagement, the addition of games on snapchat. probably makes a Lotta sense given the APPs younger audience for which gaming has become a key interactive element. Matching that with the addictive elements of Zinger Games which have seen Zinger significant success on facebook could be a great move for snap, as it looks to attract more users and more importantly keep users it does have on platform for longer. If. It succeeds it could become a major element in snaps gross strategy, making it more attractive platform for advertisers and driving. NEW AD options through game related promotions. Again the game is called tiny tiny royale. Excuse me, and it is available on snapchat now so I'm curious if anyone has tried what you think of it if it's something that you can see yourself playing, if you like the sort of game, you know with a battling other teams joining in and having that be interactive in that way, if it's even something that you think of in relationship to snapchat you, go on snapchat to play games, or do you just use it? It for this naps and the lenses, and the stories, etc, I'd be curious to hear your thoughts so speaking of gaming and social media it is becoming bigger. All the time and facebook is of course very interested in being able to tap into that growth potential with Gamer related product, offering and tools aligned with the expansion of the new East, sports shift so this is an article from June fifth, Twenty nineteen, and well hopefully from twenty nineteen, but it was from. This articles from June. Fifth Nineteen, fifty seven. Sorry feeling also today anyway over the last few years, facebook has rolled out a slew of game, related tools and products, including livestream tipping for Gamers and the the capacity to stream via desktop overlaid on gameplay footage. FACEBOOK also launched its gaming creator platform last year, which takes aim at the dominance of Youtube and twitch providing new tools to help gaming broadcasters build their following on social on the social network. Which again makes me ask? Do you play Games on facebook? I don't. Think I ever have so I cannot speak to that, but facebook. According to this article has a long way to go to catch up with those two leading game platforms, but given the the rising popularity and potential add value of gaming game streaming. It does make sense for facebook to use it scale to draw in more game related content this week. FACEBOOK has released a new set of insights from a recent survey conducted into emerging cultural shifts in gaming, which not coincidentally highlight the rising importance of social elements in gaming engagement. The insights provided some new consideration for those looking to launch promotions in the gaming sector. You can read facebook's full understanding the quest for new console gaming content report online. Or you can check out you can I'm sure you could find highlights of that if you don't Wanna read the entire thing but So some some of the stats from this report, seventy seventy percent of. Eighteen to thirty four year olds surveyed are open to playing new console game genres when playing with friends or family. Sixty four percent of the eighteen to thirty four year old surveyed say that playing with friends or meeting New People is what makes gaming great and fifty one percent of eighteen to thirty four year old console gaming buyers survey agree that facebook and other social networking sites are. Great ways to learn about new games, so there's lots of statistics in this report. There's lots of. Different types of Elements that are being looked at for instance Where does facebook fit in while fifty seven percent of the eighteen to thirty four year old console game buyers. Say The facebook family of APPs helps them discover new console games while fifty six percent say of those same console game buyers surveyed say that advertisements on their social media feeds. Their, social feeds help to discover new games, so of the people surveyed a lot of them. Actually learn at knew about new games, et Cetera from facebook, so it makes sense that facebook is trying to tap into that to get more interaction from that eighteen to thirty four year old crowd. Draw them into gaming, and once again I have to ask you, have you? Have you played games on? facebook would be a good question. Have you played games on snapchat or alternatively? What are your favorite social media platforms to play Games on when you want to play them? How do you go about that? What are your favorite ways of learning about new games and do you like that interactive element of the social media platforms where you can? meet quote, Unquote. Meet because you're not face to face, but meet new people in those ways be interested to hear what you have to say about gaming and social media.

I believe Tricia to do it or the movie and then Kellyanne had already done it. He have. But Leeann did it for the movie I right and they did not using it Tricia? So they had both versions crazy in the same category. Do they hate each other because of that? Or they just kind of like whatever it's over I don't know. I. Separately, talked to Tricia about this, right? Yeah. She didn't seem too bothered by she also one. Okay that's probably also won the grammy. I think what she said was she remembers Leeann doing the performance in that category categories right after the performance and then that's when you know you're about to win because you're categories right after you perform. And so they just expected her to win. That Lien was in the movie right? Not Tricia. Pretty. Sure Tricia I can check it. I barely remember this as a kid. But yeah, that's an uncomfortable thing. We'll come back to that. Little known facts about Chris Gaines who is Garth Brooks alter-ego Chris Gaines was in a teen pop group called crush. And he spent two years undergoing plastic surgery to repair his face after violent nineteen, ninety, two car crash really is Chris Gaines on on streaming services nowhere I would not even on Youtube I would think of it's all garth earth just keep that to Garth I actually liked Chris gain stuff I'm going to be honest with you. There's a whole part in this in that garth documentary that I watched on Netflix there's a whole segment on it word where they're talking about Chris Gains and Tricia Earwood is. Just protecting and defending it as hard as she can say, like all you guys that hate on Chris Games, you've got your stupid because you didn't listen at Chris Gains. It was amazing I remember liking it. And everybody hating on it it'd be like what he did Saturday night live as Garth and Chris Games was just confusing for a fan. Explain it you have to explain it. You're not going to get what they want you to get from it, and that's what Garth said. That was the problem with it. It was just it was too much of an inside thing for us and we didn't market it right well, I was going to be a movie correct fell through and then it just ended up being the music they were GonNa make for the movie. Yeah. Mine did you find the Leandra stuff? Yeah. It was Tricia Earwood in the movie at the end. So what happened with Leeann rhymes then they initially went to her to record it she recorded it and then they went with Tricia. Virgin. Dirty at hurts man Deana Carter strawberry wine was inspired by Boone's farm. Strawberry Hill Flavor Know you didn't drink in highschool you don't drink now but men in highschool that boone's farm. that. Was the easiest to buy, and that's what everyone drink numerous people passed on the song to record it including Tricia earwood speaking of Tricia. She was again not for me. What? What Smash Razi home. Early on billy ray Cyrus was dogged by rumors that he used to Chippendale dancer. I remember that rumor. But he was so good looking or you believe it like that's a great thing to have as bad rumor about you that you're a chippendale dancer you gotta be like ripped and hot to do that. Okay. Three dudes you're talking about this but I'll ask you like right now current country artists who would be who who would fit that rumor chippendale dancers. Sam Maybe Sam was Sam Hunt. Keith. Couldn't keep me one made a little too small I think. About Dirks No, we'll do small. No just doesn't have to be a chill you to be almost cartoon Lee rip okay. And Keith this thin and in good shape but. Like me, I'm thin in a good shape I'm not cartoon. Sam maybe like that Riley Green Ball He. ripped. Yeah Repton. Just, like leave it there map. Justin lunch maybe. I don't know I see that though I did see that that's kind of plays off the short career as a chippendale dancers bragging vegas yeah. George Strait. Tried to get the name of his movie pure country changed too because he believed it was more than just a country film it obviously. Didn't work. No. Great movie by the way. I've seen at once a longtime ago. So good. Why just it's quotable he good and no, he's terrible. He's he's not a good actor but just the storyline having Georgia in there. So good garth Brooks Nineteen, ninety-one hit the thunder rolls was originally recorded by Tanya Tucker she didn't release it. Brooks included on no fences but fans off wait seven years to purchase a version with a third verse. Do you know where the third versus course? Where every what what do you mean like? What is it? You know where you can hear it on? No. You can do it. And it music brooks included on no fences which where we heard I, but the third verse wasn't in this version. Oh, did we get to hear it I live with? Is Central Park or what was it? The double I record. Every lad is burning. Yeah. We're talking about the third verse. Okay let's shoots him or. He shoots her Willie Nelson's Nineteen Ninety two album the irs tapes who will buy my memories was recorded to help settle his massive tax debt. It was originally only available through phone order. Back in the day. I got some critics. He's able to pay a bunch of debt bag. How awesome is that? You a lot of money to the government let me just make an album real quick and take care of. Alan Jackson's Chatahoochee was inspired by a book about the Chattahoochee River and Sidney Lanier's poem Song of the Chattahoochee. Is it is it the same story line of dislike live in? Snow cone in their aftertaste. Snow cone originally, Garth Brooks hit the dance had a very different set Olympics writer. Tony Harada said that. Those were lost in a move and never recovered. Version fans no today was inspired by the movie Peggy Sue got married. The. Original. He doesn't even know where they are anymore crazy. That's I like those man, those are good. Yeah most Muslim I didn't know I'd kind of heard a little stuff about didn't know they're all right. There you go and that's why that was the motivation as to our guest this week. On right now, Richie McDonald lead singer of Lonestar. Hey Rich. How's it going? Doing this morning pay pretty good. Where are you right now I'm in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, at home. When you go out to a restaurant and let's just say you're GONNA go to olive garden or Red Lahser GonNa go for the night even if it comes to table and go hey, Ritchie from Lonestar. I got the soup and salad covered they used to before I had to start worrying map. Recognize. The masking does stop a lot of people knowing who you are a bit. Yeah. I think so because it, Kinda Kept off after face. But if people recognize you by your eyes I guess you know they're pretty good. You know we were talking about. How big. Lonestar was as a ban but really whenever it comes to amazed and at the time I was a teenager and I had I was working in Arkansas's working on pop radio and the song was was massive on the pop side of things. But now that I'm over in, you know in country living in Nashville and I have a lot of friends that have. Songs that our country that good crossover I can see it from beginning to end from when it starts to the country song. Country Radio and just continues to build momentum. What I'm curious about is Kinda the ride of that song from when you put it out, did you feel like you had a pretty good shot at a country hit and how it slowly snowballed? Craig looking back and thinking. how that song was pitched US IN A. You know over at the record in a song, baiting. And you know the art department was just really passionate about it and We kind of got on board, and now we never had any idea where recorded it. We thought it was a very passionate song that song that you know people could relate to a love song. we've always had great success at the ballot. But you know once we saw saw started commun-. Charts. we had no idea what it was gonNA. Do you know? Go on to. Be. Shoot I don't remember. Eight or nine weeks on the country charts and then crossover to the fall you know at one point. there were so many different mixes of amazed bobby. There were contemporary hot contemporary I mean I was driving home for National One day and I kid you not. Hurt Advancement. Ever live thing that you do. Oh Kick Drum beating nineties nothing I'm thinking. Well I wonder where that came but. You know it took on a lot of its own it really did. When that Song was just rock in because I was reading a story about how it was obviously the number one country song forever. But it was a number one song on the billboard hot one hundred, which was the first country song to do that since islands in the streams nineteen ninety-three like whenever it's at the top of the pop chart and you have not only a bigger audience in the states but I have to figure that the international audience was starting to grow to right. Oh, absolutely without a doubt, it opened up a lot of doors for us and we went to Europe and you know. A couple of times on just on the. Basically. The strength of amazed just crazy to. Think Asong could you know could be powerful not just here but but abroad? When you're doing this song live do you think about every show someone would proposed? Well you know over the years we've had so many so many fans and. Just, come up to us before the show they can come on stage and You know propose yes. So what's happened? It's happened a lot so I I would imagine. You know probably every show there's somebody out there that. That loves that song and it's you know they pick their you know perfect timing to propose to their loved one. I got imagine there's a bunch of babies that are probably like. Twenty. Two, twenty, three years old now that were conceived amazed. Without a doubt. You know I'm trying to think. I took a brief. Hiatus from Lonestar few years and while I was out, guys out doing the process, right? And WHO CARRY That He called him as one of the love making songs that he'd ever heard and. That that was on, that was on the price is right but that's twenty years ago. You know we're we're celebrating twenty years of the lonely grow album. Amaze was on so It's crazy to think. You'll. Implies but a song like that. I don't know it just It's timeless. Really, I, mean people still come to the shows to hear that song and I mean it's Just. One of those classic songs I suppose Lonestar. was founded in nineteen, Ninety two by you. But you are not the original lead singer how can you be such a good singer but not be the original lead singer like when creating a band Okay Well I. Think Dean Sampson listening this morning. I got to clarify that actually i. mean there's a lot of Topo in some of the. You know. I guess some of the information but actually. was working at oprey land. and. I hadn't moved from. Texas to Tennessee and I had tried out property in a year before League met briefly. In Texas, anyway I saw him out at opera name one day and he goes man he goes I'm thinking about putting a band together. So long story short they can actually No that was really you know. He wanted you know he he kinda ran the. You know his time at oprey land and he was ready to do something else. So. I think it was actually really responsible for putting lone star together. John Ritter was out there found Michael Keech rainwater. we had two lead singers at the time and you know John and I were sharing responsibilities. We're kind of like a burks done but are. The label Kinda wanted to you know have a direction and they wanted me to. You know have the responsibility of lead vocal so Anyway John was you know wish shared that responsibility at one point and then I kind of took it over and he went on to own having Nashville? Yeah. That's true. Half literally land and bars John. I assume you guys are still call. Oh, yeah I mean you know John Calls us to do stuff from time to time? You know a lot of his. Radio Events and we've done we've been to his birthday parties and So yeah, you know we still techs from time to time and. Day He had sent us all texts we back. Then before we had a wreck deal, we were called Texas see. And we made this little. Little tape could sell the shows and John had found one in and took a picture of it and send it to us just an songs that we hit recorded back then. Yeah, we're. Still. We're still good friends. That Texas. SOC- seems like it would be confused because that's because you're in Tennessee, but you all loudly were. Texans. Right. Exactly. But I know we're we're going with the seems hard to say are hard I'm reading it I would I would be like tech Sassy took saucy. You know there are so many times that we'd pull up to club nor honky-tonk and you know the our name would be you know in the marquee and they would say tech AC- or Like you said it would be spilled techs SC, and there's nobody could pronounce it but and also give credit for that as well. So who was it that suggested Lonestar? Well we were actually in the studio recording our first album with Don Cooking Wally Wilson. And You know mortgage out that bans are in the studio looking for songs and cost US had called. Don Cook when mornings at hey heels I hear that the, you know the labels asking the band to change your name. He goes off Texas. He goes about Lone Star. Pretty. Sure. That's where that happened. Did people think you guys were and I'm not sure the environment then but you know there's such a distinction now between Texas country and and Nashville country whenever lone star was the band was was Texas country such a definitive thing do they think you guys fit in that category? You know what? I don't think I really don't think it was not when we started not like it is now I just I spent a week back in Texas you know last week in Lubbock Texas where I'm from my mom. TV Show but. You know and listen to some of the Local stations in Texas music. That is now it's just. It's you know it's its own animal you know but back then. I don't know that we were really categorized that we just because we were from Texas in our name was Lonestar. I don't think it really put us in that category as. His Texas music not like it is right now because it's like it's got, it's got its own identity, own sound and. You know. It has money like have friends that are Texas country artists and they don't really have Torah outside of Texas. Oklahoma. Arkansas. And they stay completely busy and making plenty of money. Yeah it's. Crazy. Stars got nine number ones I wanNA start one, thousand, nine, hundred, five. This is the very first one. This is no news suit. then. What is this song? Make you think about Reggie? Who Am I I think I remember the first time. We did that video out in. I want say it was grim out area in. That old time school bus and. You know try just trying to find extras for the. For the video there was a girl that did the girl in that video. At the time she was sixteen years old and she was the one that was on the bus is shaking and dancing and. So. That was ninety five to. She's. Thirty one now it's crazy. Wow. Okay let's go. Let's see. Let me run through some of these. Come crying to me nine, hundred, Ninety, seven. Jews need. Jam Thousand Ninety nine obviously amazed number three. Let me play this. When I like this one lot to this a smile from one, thousand, nine, hundred nine now here's a clip of smile. So was this the next single after amaze like directly. Upper Amaze. Same year I know it's tough but I wonder what the the mindset is after have such a massive hit and it's a ballad. Do you feel like you have to chase another direction you go. You know what? Let's dance with the girl that brought us. Well, I, mean, we had some success with that at times you know with the You know front porch and Mr Mom and a lot of. Family ratings related songs. I guess yeah sometimes you think that you know if it ain't broke, don't break it and try it again but sometimes it can It can. It can backfire you know. I'M A, I'm a play a few more real quick. I'm already there two thousand jam. This is this is probably my favorite song I know that amazes the jam for most people but being a kid that grew up on country music like straight up small town in Arkansas, like this song hair screams loan start to me more than anything else. Think about that. Well. You know I'm kind of partial to that song. It probably is my favorite song. Is a song writer and a performer just because of what it meant to my family. How happened with my four year old saying daddy when you come at home over the phone and inspiring that. Song. For it to go on. And What it has meant to the men and women in our military you know they adopted that can two thousand and one You know right around outlet right after nine eleven and I don't know that song has just meant so much to so many people over the years and That has a lot to to me. Yeah that's a jam. A couple more clips here. Here's my front porch looking in from two thousand three. It's not from. Jan Love that one and two, thousand four. Here's Mr Mom. Crazy how? And it's only Monday Manchester. You know what's interesting too is when you guys put out walking Memphis it peaked at number eight and I would have thought the song was a number one not knowing the charts from that time because I heard it so much. When you guys put this out? This is a pretty big song for you guys, right. Oh, absolutely. But the thing about that song is no results who don't know. You know that was a pop hit of. Way before it was a country hit by us, Marc Cohn had written and recorded that song and it was pop i WanNa say. I don't know what early eighties maybe. But Eighties. Yeah. No we We used to do it soundcheck messing around and Joke Lonnie. Hatton's doing one day and said, you should re record that and so. We did you know you basically just take the song in at a little still fiddle and you go? All right. I got trivia question for you. What song knocked off amazed from the country charts. After eight weeks. I WANNA say it was A. A Tim McGraw phone. Shelly right. Single White female. Oh Shelley Rod. He's still dated at like Dang that Jelly right? No, that's okay. She's all in the family. You know she worked at Opera Land as well with INC yeah. Do you know what? Song later tied Lonestar Amazed at eight weeks on the chart. At number one. ALEX I'll go with Tim McGraw two hundred. It's Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett. It's five o'clock somewhere. There you. Well let me let me finish with a really cool stat and then I'm just so grateful for your time amazed spent forty one weeks on the country singles chart giving it the second longest chart of any single ever. Is just you know for so many people that was such a massive song, and then once you start to go through all the number ones that loan star had you guys did so much for country music I did see to you guys played a socially distant show pretty recently how was that? Was Awesome winning. Play Utah Talk. Show and you know they they did it by the book You know they did the social distancing seating three. Three chairs, sixty-two chairs, and. I was you know honestly it was great to play after our first show in six months Lasso February twenty seven I think Gulfport Mississippi. And You know what we didn't even rehearse and then you know you have the jitters but when you get on stage and But whenever maybe a few little hiccups. But for the most part, we just got out there and we had fun. Fans enjoyed it and it was great to be back on stage. Again, I appreciate the time love your work. You can follow on Instagram Lone, Star Band official, and hopefully I'll see San Richie thank you again for your time. Hey Bobby, all those songs just played. I gotta give you a shameless plug. We re recorded auto songs, the albums called. Tim To warn it'll be up next to you is. Okay. So like the number ten, ten to one, ten songs that went to number one. So it's was called tend toward nice and are you re recording? So you own the master. Well. That's that's part of it, and then also just to you know I don't know just kind of fresh off given. The same song and there's You know maybe just a little different instrumentation just to. Like you just got change it up the can't sound exactly the same. We already did that. Well, let me know whenever that record comes out and I'll say this to if you're a fan of Lonestar whenever this record comes out play that one. So the record companies not getting all the money we need the ban, we need the riders to get the money we relaxed with making sure all these mega corporations get the money off this music. All right you go. That's my that's my shameless plug for you to Richie. There Ritchie mcdonagh Richie thank you very much. Talk to you soon. Okay. Thank you. All Right, bye-bye. So Mike. Taylor swift has been rumored to be doing right where it's. We're still recording, right? Yep. Where it's you know she left her label big machine And there was all the controversy about of showing her masters. She didn't own a masters and then it was what she's GonNa read record everything. So when people are and find the songs they like that and so she makes money streams and downloads. It's the same thing there. Yeah. These guys who are like I want to make any money for songs anymore. Record of the trouble with that is though. What's hard to do is to make it sound. A lot like the original. Yeah. So you've got two things. You can either try as hard as you can make, and it's tough because the production value the instruments you can try to dial in and make it sound exactly like it or you can be a little risky like they're doing into. Do it slightly different? So when it does sound different, it's for a reason. So ayler that's hard because their voices changed so much. Yeah. Just like you wish that you had a voice filter like. H, filter. They could just change your voice to be sixteen. Again, i. be curious what that sounds like yeah. That's why when he said that I was like. Anyway, good to talk to those guys and. I think that might be the first ever spoken with Richie I've seen them play before like the OPRY but I don't think I've ever spent any time with them but really nice guy. All right. There you go.

All right now as chuck wicks bringing on to be the musical expert here as we talk about the as they just announced the nominations chuck. How are you? I'm doing fantastic. Not nominated this year but I'm doing great. Hey, have you been nominated? the only nomination I've ever gotten in my life was for a C. N. T. award for breakthrough video of the year and I lost to Kellie pickler. What a joke right now we love Kelly I know I'm kidding Chuck's on. We're GONNA. Here's what we're going to do. The criteria are not who we want to win. But it's just who do we if we had money and we had to bet who do we think will win based on what we know about the voting system in the awards okay. That way that gets US OUT OF TROUBLE WITH HAVING Friends because I would pick my friends in some of these even though I don't think they'll win you know. Right, even though they're not that. Good. Terribly, untalented. Yes. Okay. So we're going to start with entertainer of the year. Let's start with a law clip from. Eric. Church where you go. Having record. Luke Kuhn also in the mix their. Down Main. Verandah. Lambert. Carrie underwood. Stand. Finally, Keith Urban. Who Do you think we'll win who deserves is to myself. I'm not even talking to you. Who Do you think will win the award. I think it's long overdue I. Think Erica Church is going to win this award. Okay I think Kerry wins because I. Think People felt like she got screwed over last year and that is going to affect the vote this year I. Think She Dan Shades this award where people think she should have won last year so like all crap, we can't forget her this year. So that's my pick Mike. Are you keeping notes on these? I'm keeping them here because chuck and I better thousand dollars on this. Okay. Have all the notes except unless I lose and there was never a real bit. Changes Okay Female vocalist, and we don't need all the clips on this one. Here is Miranda Lambert. Ashley McBride Merrin Morris Casey Muss Graves, and Carrie. Underwood. Mile. I. Yeah. I'm, GonNa go with I'm. GonNa go with. Maranda Lambert. Because of Bluebird because it was it went so well for her yeah I'm GonNa go with Miranda to she is that the voters critics darling and rightfully so in a lot of ways. But I'm. GonNa go with Miranda as well I. Don't think she'll win entertainer but I think she will won't be my vocalist that'd be weird because Kerry I think's GonNa win entertainer even though she doesn't win female vocalist. Which entertainers that technically the big one anyway did it'll be happy. You'll be happy. All right. Let's go to male vocalist of the year Eric Church Luke Combs Thomas Rhett. Chris Stapleton and Keith Urban Male vocalist of the year. COMES, Luke, combs, strong that's a strong pick. Yeah. And I could definitely see where Luke comes should win entertainer of the year because he had the biggest share however I think that the win male vocalist. Because People Mana can't get her, but we should give them the the second place award, which is male vocalist of the year. Chris Stapleton is the guy's got a beat, but I think he can do their right. Came out with the song little too late. You gotta realize people are voting like Chris Stapleton just came out with song, but all the boats were already in by that. Yeah, because they like last year or the year before and any put a music out people just like. Yeah people just like to vote for Stapleton and I don't blame him but yeah, I feel like. This year not. Included but like Maddie and TAE would get nominated for duo and then put music out in two years. So you know just sometimes the voting is weird. Okay. All right. What were the same their song of the year? Now this is a songwriter award. So Bluebird from Random Lambert. Written by Luke Dick Natalie Heavy and Miranda Lambert. That's number one. The bones. And Morris Jimmy Robbins and Laura Volts. Even. Though I'm leaving by Luke Comb songwriters Lou. Combs Wyatt d'arret and ray full chapter. I. Hope you're happy now by Karl. Pearson. Libra songwriters Luke Combs Randy Montana Carly Pearson Jonathan Singleton. and. Finally, more Hartson mine by angered Andress. Britain by Ingrid. Sam. Ellis Derek Sutherland Chill. bloomer the bones even though I'm leaving hope you're happy now and more hearts demise go ahead. Definitely a tough one for me because a lot of friends and glory a lot of songs that I like you know preference to I'm GonNa go with the bones though. This is a good one. That's it. there. Yeah that's a good but there are four of these five that I can actually see winning I really can't see I. Hope you're happy winning. WAS GONNA ask You There's no way I. Hope you're happy. Now when's good for them for being nominated? It just wasn't that big of a song. It was a number one, but it wasn't like. Career defining for anyone. To people to get their yeah that's right and you. I'm. GonNa. Go ingored andress more hartson mind because that's song is written. From A. Perspective never heard an a song before. Like it's a love song but it's a love song not between two people love song between like, Hey, if we break up. Okay. Well, that sucks but you've heard all my family to and I'd never heard that song before. That's true I. Don't disagree with that. I. Say the bones. Bones is because it crossed over had. Had hit over and pop world as well. So huge Song Yup. Again, and then you can argue Lou combs because he's freaking Luke combs and that songs amazing and then Bluebird by Miranda's her first number one in years and but but I'm going to anger going and Morris. All right. All right. Now to the new artist of the year. You never nominated for new artist either chuck what the crap though I was actually really disappointed in Allen I- Kelsey Ballerina about one I would've. Twitter was hot back then and like all that stuff I would've been tweeting away. Nominated so. Did you do you remember the morning like you're waiting knowing that nominations were coming out? Yes I. Actually it was a lady antebellum James. Auto and myself we announced all the nominees Oh. No you. Yes and guess what? James was nominated lady A. I'm for sure. I was the only one that stage I'm like, yeah. Let's take a picture nominees. Everybody who got nominations to take one step forward. All right you. Chuck. That sorry because that's that's like, okay, we go new artist of the year. Jimmy Allen. Ingrid Andress. Gabby Barrett Carly Pierce and Morgan Wallin. Now. What's interesting is carly was up last year too. So this is their second I'm being on new artist of the year. The rest are first timers who got. I have. Morgan law one in this one. Why's that? Because he's the only. Artist I think not even new artists. When seven summer's came out when I go for a run every day I, put on the top fifty stream songs right like I'm like what's hot? What's hot right now and he was up there with all the pop songs like he was he was like number three. And he did that. I mean I I don't think I've ever seen. That yeah I mean him in Luke homes the guys that have just separated themselves in the streaming world. I'm picking Morgan Walla to for the same reason that he's just separated himself from all of the all those guys I had great new artist years more than while I had a great year for anybody in the format like cinema an amazing year. And I'm also. I think you'll probably you may relate to this is that I'm around country music so much like the current countries being made, I don't really gravitate to loving a whole lot of things because I'm right in the middle of it. But when I do I'm like man this is so freaking good and that's how I felt about Morgan Wallin stuff. Although Jimmy Allen did do a song Nellie that is kind of cool and Gabby more Charlie Booth Guinea did subway commercials come on. He didn't think about that. All right. Morgan. Wallin. We're pretty similar. Most of these. We got a few more here. Let's. Purpose up on purpose going forward. Vocal Group of the year. We'll play some clips on this one. Up I is lady. Antebellum. Lady a sorry there you. Know I know I know what are they in late? No, we're not edit messed up apologizing. Lady A. Also is little big town. Midland is in the vocal group of the year group. Old Dominion. Dog. And finally, Rascal flatts. Chuck. Wicks who's your pick for vocal group of the year. Okay Part Old Dominion is going to win Old Dominion handouts going to win but really rascal flatts means the win because they were gonNA retire after sheer and if they win. If they win I think it will keep them together so I'm. GonNa go with Rascal flatts if they win they'd they go well guys you know are seven ninety three awards didn't really keep us together but are seven, hundred, ninety, four I really feel like that's the thing. I think they had a rough here everybody. Washed a lot of money this year or either got fired or furloughed, and they were one of them. I think flat seeking win the awards at least say together. Okay. Okay. I'm also with you I'm Old Dominion. This has been there award last bunch of years they just put out hit after hit after hit although they had to jump off their latest single there on a new single now they had to really slow song that I love the Thomas Rhett and Matthew Ramsey wrote together. Those call my and people do some people do It was a little too slow and I saw they had they were like a we got to. Start Bailing. Water on this and they switched their singles up. Maybe they. They don't deserve it then that's right. All right. Just a few more here vocal duo of the year we have brooks and Dunn. Brothers Osborne. Dan Shea. Say. Key Florida Georgia line. Maddie and Tae. prognostication. Please Mr Wicks. GANNON'S SHEA I mean they're all great obviously brooks and Dunn the best ever. But Dan Shea Shea. Actually Brooks and Dunn and Dan Shea Shea is the new Ronnie. Go ahead. Because Ronnie Dunn. It's Ronnie. Dunn was a Solaar to begin with. He would have won every male vocalist of the year. He's like one of the best thing ever to be fair. Let Me Stop You for one second Ronnie. Dunn did try as a solo artist failed after the fact. Okay. Go ahead. So sharing is like that Shannon could win every meal book was as the best thing that ever. So Dan Shea and dance my smyers, right Dan is like a great great producer. I mean, there is a good act good act identity have separated themselves cleanly from the rest. However you for what they do and they don't have the streams or the crossover and I'm picking Dan shape but I, understand why brothers Osborne sneaks in and wins sometimes or they want a bunch of years in a row before Dan and shaded is that what they do is different, it's distinct it's good and although it may not get the the mainstream country music love like they have a passionate base fan base, Anna critic base, and so damage factor and the cool factor when they're not trying to be cool right Right. Because you know. Some folks try to be cool and sometimes it comes off call sometimes it doesn't but those guys never try. Yeah. They always seem to be super cool kind of like yourself chuck Wicks. Thank you so much. Talking Walk Them Let's see. Let's do. we'll do two more of these album of the year. What you see is what you get Lou combs, heartache medication. John Party never will Ashley McBride Old Dominion Old Dominion or Wildcard Miranda Lambert.

Okay Luke combs although old dominion did their cat album this year which for the meow mix album didn't make it I. think it was right six. Yeah. Right at that line where they cut off the. I'm going Luke comes to it. Just it. It just did so much better than every other album of country music this year. Through okay, and then finally single of the year, which is the artist, not the songwriter award artist, the producer, the mix engineer you have I hope from Gabby Barrett Beer never heart Lou combs ten thousand hours. Dan. And and Bieber Bluebird Miranda and the Bones Mirror Morris. That's a tough one right there. Real, tough Oh Man I you know. I'm sorry. Let me go back I think the industry is gonNA. Pick. The downs. Wow. Okay. Good. I. Mean I have the industry's going to pick luke combs beer never broke my heart. Glucose primes away with five awards out of six. That's the only one. He doesn't win as entertainer and then with that too I feel like. He might you know can you can you imagine being Lou combs right now like just got married. He's got five, six seven nominations and he's got his own crocks. I I know I can't. I hadn't thought about that last element of it until you brought it up. So Here's the thing about his craft because I had some and then they sent me some the thing about crocs when they're made specialty for folks it's the same crock. All Do is put the little NUB INS on it. You bulletin my dog ate. What do you call? It giblets my dog get all the let's microbes and then just like normal crocs. CONES, crocs my dog ate there's now they're just normal cracks. You wear them all the time never. You've never worn them wants like in on purpose I will wear them if I need to walk in the backyard but they, they're just cracks generally for me. Those big ones aren't the kind of shoes I like to flip flops but I don't really like them with the holes in them. Judy where eleven I put this. Is Going send may want that is going to go. For you I'm going to senator you're GONNA love it. Instead he's like. To have. We're pretty close to. Announced Jacksonville Right, Mike.

As you can see I like how you can note yourself wreck and Funny Chuck Wicks is Anyway. Thanks for coming on. You can follow Chuck on Instagram, throw your name out there chuck. Chuck Wicks principle. It is has saw you at a softball game. The other night were you watching one of your daughters games? Yeah. So I got three bonus daughters to in but one of his nine years old and she's back. We were a little concerned bobby because she said, I don't WanNa play softball anymore and then whole pandemic it and there was no softball but then her best friend Avenue School. Don't my God we should play softball together and she said, yes so we're like watching her she's the athletic she's doing her thing we felt normal for a hot second So it was good. It was good stuff. When they play because their kids something. They were because I wanted to play softball is a very selfish question is the only reason asked about this 'cause I'm very selfish is that I wanted to softball here in town and I thought I better not. I'm an adult man I'm GonNa have other adults out there can't play because it just look bad even if we don't get sick I feel like it'll just look bad for me to be running a team and so I liked it sports or playing I. Think especially with kids who definitely have stronger immune systems Are. They doing anything at while they played a cover, their face or they just letting it rip. LEADING TO RIP They have signs around the complex because there's like five field out there in every single field will take in with. Teams. So a lot of people are out there. They just had signs that say six feet apart and I saw one person with a mask on it was actually a kid which I found interesting she was walking with her mom her mom didn't have mask on that she did and then she no, there was no, I mean and everybody Kinda I dunno, I think we're at a point now. With everything that's going on that we just more aware of things. So we just generally are are just more careful about what we're doing. Yeah I think so too I mean I would go watch a softball game like you did as well if it were again, you're outside. You you'd have to be super close but I, bet you it's hard for you to beat off all the autograph seekers like how do you sit on the bleacher when everybody's trying to pop right so you get all the get some signs you know you're right ought dude all them softball mouths or after me you know what I'm saying I'm like ladies ladies my wife's right he was running in the oven. Okay. We're pregnant can't can't touch that right? There is. At check I'll talk to you soon and thank you for being on the. got.

Is it cool for me less at I know that we've met I know that when we see each other last at the Kennedy Center. Our nation's capital it in so, but this has never been on my show. And that sounds pretty cool for me from beyond recall for off Brooklyn Donner here kicks you, and I met I don't know if you remember. But the first and second Tom played the opera you were playing and I wanted to your room. And you're very nice to me that was you. That was me. I think the first time we met actually was was at when the in Norman, Oklahoma. Oh, that's right for the tornado. Yeah. We both did a benefit together out there. And that's right. I had to get over there. Quick and your manager with nice enough to go. Hey, get on the plane, and then you and I flew back together. Yeah. But I want to say that because I don't know if you want to know, how rich you are shut up my plans. Plans this plane was that anyway, we know I just got on. And nobody said anything that metoo. Luckily, it was going back to national report of that. Paola trial. Jet ride, and Ronnie Dunn come on Ronnie, okay? Come on. Are you kidding me? I shut up. Have you seen you? I must say nothing door. We've all been dislike I used to get on the radio and beg you guys to come in. And you got. This. Okay. She kicks call your radio station would be like aching kicks come over. And they'll be like. No. And I was like I don't care what somebody told me anything what's up with this project because I know about it. It's out there. Couple songs out today. How do you feel when someone does like a celebrate Tori project toward you Ronnie like they made these songs the two that are out today. Luke combs brand new man caned Brown does believe like how does that feel when someone celebrates you and make your music? Well, it just kind of old, you know. And that's Monte Rosa said I get over that. And go dang how cool it's it's super coup and started to in the studio with these guys, you know, and and get to do it in real time. No in today's digital age. Everybody's like cars are going on cross town. This dramas are over here. Singers are over here ones over here. Well, got in the same room. And did it I'm gonna hear this. There's some headphones if you want, but I'm gonna play a little bit of brand new man from Luke combs, you can check this out right here. You guys are in the room whenever that's happening. Like, you guys are making that with him and put us THEO pretty whole school in the room with next to one another face to face that is old school, and you know, look actually had posted ham and a couple of his band guys acoustically plan brand new man, and and it got sent around to us. And you know, we just said that's cool. You know as crate, and it's kinda how this guy going. It really wasn't our idea. Couple of different Casey must graves doing neon moon in her show, and whatever and our manager said, and this these seemed to dig y'all's music in there may be a project here and know several like, and I guess he came back about a month later and said, hey, I got a big list, and then everybody seems to be in. So we'll shoot a single again. Here's Kane Brown doing believe. There was anybody. Desert ticket to the other side. Dance lead on. Me any. Come on. Isn't it crazy because that's a legendary song? I got a massive fan of you guys. And I'm okay sitting in front of you telling you that I'll geek out a little bit. I think I have every time I've you geeked out and that always happen. But like that's didn't even go number one back in the day. And when I hear that that's quintessential Brooks and Dunn, right? That's didn't even go number one. And everybody knows everywhere to it. That's crazy to me. Let me somebody career songs that come along for you as an act they don't necessarily hit number one. And that was a song was long. You know, I remember Keith Olbermann doing with us in a country fest concert and turned around the mill the show, and he gets or the rehearsal getting goes, this is no this is no like two minute boy pants. So yeah, it's just so many was a great surprise stepped up. I mean in his records are one thing. But we plug somebody into a song like that. And that's that's Ronnie, STAN I can't take any credit for it. But I think we both just kind of lifted each other when he started singing. Wow. This is going to be good. No what he's like really started singing and just light Ribeira down, right, man. It's like all the stuff you need your voices. Their love it. Then the whole new album by two songs out today. But the whole album comes April, fifth and reboot. And so who else is on it Casey's on it? Canaan Luke obvious. There aren't Luke combs who else Thomas Rhett, Brett young Landco linka. I have the list. Yeah. Yeah. I know everything I'm starting to like help us. Others. Ashley McBride John party. Br young Landco Midland Cody Johnson and Tyler booth a hell. Yeah. All those guys you can comment about all of them banned. Enough time. Let me ask you a couple of questions. I always want to know, my heart is, okay. Yeah. Can we do it can add some Bobby hard questions? Go. All right. Because when I've spent time I don't wanna geek out. But now, you're my world, I could do whatever I want as I walked onto bobby's house. Okay. So you guys got together like thirty one years ago. I looked it up like exactly thirty one years ago. So you get put together like suggested that you guys should meet each other. Right. So who makes that suggestion? What's the first impression? You guys have each other. When you meet. Tuck it k b well Tim DuBois called us both up. He he was he was starting the label Aerostar at the time Nashville with club Davis. He'd already signed Alan Jackson. So he didn't want another boy singer. He was trying to get one everything. Yeah. And he'd signed down in Rio he'd signed Pam Tillis was his girl photo formula yet and the judge were breaking up. So he was determined to get a do they needed a new do? Exactly. And so, you know, he just said we literally met at launch over a bad enchilada, and he pretty more less offered as a record deal. If you know if it worked out if we could work together, it didn't really say that he's saying way and write some songs. Isn't that same week we rode a brand new man in next broken heart? That was Tuesday. We wrote those songs on Thursday and Friday de modem to come back, and he jumped up and down, and then he offered us a record deal. But when you okay, you're right brand new, man. Do you go? Oh, we this is something like, we didn't even know each other, you know, three days ago, but we don't brand new man. This is something we didn't know never know never know when you ride him in until they you know, they're become hits. I guess I thought it was pretty good. Yeah. I really did. 'cause you know, and Ronnie had that idea, I'm a changed, man. And and my near miss on. What if we changed that? But he already had the I saw the light. And I was baptized by the you know, in Ronnie came from Oklahoma. He hadn't been hanging out in Nashville for ten years like me. So you had a lot of fresh ideas that I think we get bogged down and formula riding sometimes when you're doing that for a live. And so it was for me as a writer. It was a really a breath of fresh air, honestly to to have some new ideas that you weren't just sitting in a room and everybody passed around twenty times already, and it was kinda it was fun. We wrote a lot of stuff early that. I thought it had some good energy to it. Whenever boost Gutenberg you happens and the dance blows up and everybody. That's you know, what I actually learned to step to boots can boogie like a big part of my life was being in Arkansas and this girl named Kari Carter had the biggest crush on was headed to step in and electric slide, by the way, both of them. I learned to boost Gutenberg the theme song. And so when the boost Gutenberg, you starts to be a thing did you guys come up with their dads. Did you know it's gonna be a thing. Like, how does that whole thing happened? I wrote an Oklahoma. We played a big club there. Call Tulsa city limits, and we we had to do cover songs, and you play club bars and stuff or they don't they want regional stuff. And the people kept coming up in asking us you'll play it again. So we'll maybe there's something there. So we'd sneak into the set late at night, but they were doing those dances. And you're the dance doll line, dancing, and all that stuff is already up and going strong and Oklahoma, Texas, but down there if you if you play song or or play in any of the clubs, go dance. Then you're you know, you're out. So we had had to write songs that kept people moving to right Tarn soul beer now. So. So I've never been close to Alon dance acting to step a little I would kill myself. I'm the clumsy person in the world. I'd kill myself trying to LAN dance we used just don't in front of the stage and go. And dangerous. Boogie was such a big part of the song though. Like, I mean for two guys that don't dance like that was such a massive part of this song was that was the music video may not even watching t that's crazy. That's awesome. Awesome. You offer like fifteen minutes. This is the best thing. Out to harder now going. Oh my goodness. Okay. So how about these Las Vegas shows? You guys are doing like you come back together. Right. I mean, I bet that Pasto much does Vegas shows. Holy crap. Little change all this money to I mean, right. Like, you get to play all the hits and do stay in Vegas for like three or four days. They put you up. How does that work? The give us all sweet. And have you seen the under yet? I wish that they're that big. Skates. Come on. So if you want something that anytime, you get that. But on the night. Good you. Yeah. We're two weeks at a time four times a year. So you're out there. You do three shows a week, and, you know, get some golf in and it's just fun to stumbled down from your hotel room onto a stage where all your tar ten and it sounds the same as it did last night and just as sing and play. It's about as great situation as as you could ever hope for and it's fun to sing those songs again. I think it was good for us to get away from it for a few years and REBA, you know, kind of we got a great referee out there. So, you know, it's it's we've been having a good time. Honestly, we we both. We mentioned earlier what the Kennedy Center honors, and you guys have a longer relationship the review than I do. I'm again hugely fan. And she's been great to me. How did you guys become friends with REBA? Gosh, she hired us in two or ninety three. I guess she was the first tour the that. We actually got hooked up with and hardest. I think back then they were like four or five major her straight Alabama who else I think. Yeah. And then REBA so either she had a spot and gave us the opening spot was ten feet of stage in ten minutes a hundred dollars or not we took her bucks. But if you years later, we both kind of kind of got a good a good wave going and and hooked up. I think in ninety six and maybe ninety seven we we did some co headlining together we had twenty one trucks nineteen buses out on that tour. So for for that, really. Yeah. Good. Wow. What song is what gets the biggest reaction when you play what song 'cause you have so many hits that people react differently. Have where you go. What what's the one where you get people go? Boom firstly. They got it. I'd probably say mammary morale come on. That's a dance. Yeah. Maria. Gotta be kidding me. For me sleep is so important when I do this show. I'm sure whatever you're doing today sleep is so important, but you feel like maybe you can't get quality sleep because you're so busy. We're all busy.

What's that number one party like back, then I time you get a number one. Oh back in the day. You hit number one. What do you do? I know Donna Hilley through so party Sony. I just remember we were big into our logo is this this this Longhorn steer on steroids. And Donna didn't know the difference for bless her heart. We turn the corner on our party, and she's got a cow out there. You know, these little horns America. Okay. Let's good effort. You know? But I think not. Did it ever get too big for you guys where you go? You look around and you go holy crap. Like, this is this is a lot like a lot of trucks a lot of stage ever go. This is this is a show. You know, it's just a matter of personal. I guess subjective viewpoint there. There's time was growing to the point to where you get on the bus and the door would open and shut like every fifteen minutes somebody going. Hey, we need more lights. We need to add the lights where do you think about adding, you know, more more monitors and that kind of stuff that's the most strenuous part. I think just dealing with the day to day. You got going opened not gonna step out there. And you know, not have enough a quick moment. And it was that was kind of out of our wheelhouse. Let's sing and write songs like more to it than that. Obviously you ever did the thing where you have the wrong city what up to below talking? When you're in rapid city and Cedar Rapids. And you know, some other something city, you know, that where you really have to remind yourself. I think the worst mistake I ever made that way was we played the basketball Coliseum at Michigan state. And I and I was really disoriented walk into the stage and going where what town is this though. I know I know we're Michigan state. But anyway, I just a see their logo going to the stage. And I went okay, I got this. So while you wanna scream something when you go out there walked out there, and I go how about you. Oh. I know I saw was on the wall. You know? Spartans. No, you're not coming back, dude. Like halfway through the show. They start to kinda smile. Smile again. Yeah, that's funny. So we started type. Right. The city on the ground swore. I'd never have to do that. But red deer road you both wrote that right art kicks heavy lifting. Does that mean you come in with most of the article? The bus were not after a show any said, he's got this idea title, or whatever. And we started talking about I grew up like in rural route three in Eldred Arkansas kind of you know in. We we talked about a lot of that stuff. And I'm not sure we didn't have the course. No well on its way. So funny. How we remember this stuff? Yeah. Everybody rock song. A different story. I'll tell you what really happened with after. This is my law. And then I remember having to like Tuykov and go, and we it was a long long drive like from somewhere like somewhere to Oregon relented in San Francisco, and we had a show in Sacramento at ARCO. See I'm in Oregon, you're on the other coast. You're on the right coast. They're both over there. All right. So anyway. I am in Beijing. The buses takeoff. We got morning kicks us buses parked in front of us. And I see him get out in. This is hair is like it looks like he's been through World War three or something. Stumbles up on the bus was guitar and he plays plays the song the versus on like good. God, man. Bingo, you hit it. You could tell done. So what really happened? Ronnie wrote down the primarily those great lines from the chorus on the airplane flat to San Francisco yet Terry McBride with you, and he hands it to me and goes, what do you think of this? I'm like shit that is great. And we had had this discussion about where we grew up in the red dirt roads, and we decided to name our album that but we'd said we got to write a song that goes with it. So I jumped on my bus he jumps on his and we had for Sacramento, and I just grabbed my tar went to work. We get there him and Terry go knock on my door and go let's go get a steak, and I said, cool, but you got to hear this. I saw in listen, and as rare Ronnie Dunn for him, he went I love it. That's great on which along with you. Let's go let's see to stay drink a beer all that kind of stuff. What was the one hit? You guys had with over twenty three number three number ones are looked earlier. What's? The one where you wrote you went that's the one like you could tell them media because I ask you the flip side of this in a second. What's the one where you went? That's it dirt red dirt was pretty close. I mean, I think that was a moment where we were all sitting around in played it for the first time went, I think, I think we've got it. It went in the studio. And then, you know, here comes that lick dot dot dot dot down. And it just turned into a like, I couldn't wait to get home and play that for Mark. Right. Because we we started gathering up some songs, but we needed that anchor and to go with the title, you know, and that's it's just that mammary go how we did it. So many variables contribute to that moment. In a lot of times. It's just when you sit down in the studio not knowing where it's going to go and the guitar player. It usually if tar sit down hit that lick, and he hit that intro lick up up up up up on there just turned into like kind of an anthem kind of the way we went on the other side of that what major song, but big hit you guys had the took forever. And you're like. Oh, let's think took forever to write to. We didn't get it. Right. And producing the first couple of times, we didn't put it like what's the struggle song? They're all struggle. That's like having a go. Do your homework. It's fun to saying funded fun to play. I think he'll Billy deluxe was one that was. Totally different song than believe. But it was a song that never, you know, barely got in the top ten. It might have made it might not even made top ten, but I'll watch our sales double. And and it's some of those songs just like believe people to this day.

We'll also check in on last year's resolutions just to keep ourselves honest. We'll also make some predictions for the New Year and will undertake the often painful job of seeing whether we got anything right twelve months ago when we did the exact same thing I'm Stephen Thompson and I'm Linda Holmes. It's a resolutions allusions and predictions time once again on pop culture happy hour from NPR said.

NPR Music Steve and Thompson. Also with us is Glen Weldon of the NPR arts desk sideline and in our fourth chair today back for another go round. been doing this with us for years. We welcome back writer cat chow formerly of NPR's codes which team welcome back cat. Hey thank you. We're so happy to see you. It's so good of you to come back over and over for this particularly often agonizing. Show we're going to get right into our resolutions and the first thing we have to do Glenn I'm going to go to your resolution from last year and we're gonNA listen back to what it was that you vowed to do this time last chair. If it's me and I make a decision that I'm GonNa consume something. I tend to follow through with one exception video games. I abandoned video games ames all the damn time. I'm not just talking getting one hundred percent completion where you get a respectable. I'm just talking about finishing the story right but on those occasions when I do make it through. It is tremendously tremendously satisfying. It's a rush when you see the credits come up and you know it's like anything in life. Writing is not fun but having written is great too. I remember. We're going through a long time ago. Getting through a game called Ninja guidance to I think it was which had all these terrible for me perilously difficult boss battles but when you do finally finally beat that posits just it's I imagine this is what heroin is that it's that feeling so I am no longer going to abandon video games in the middle. I'm GonNa see them mall through. That's my resolution. Ah Well let's let's put this. Na a not applicable. Because I I just play games this year for a host of reasons. One of them We've been out of the apartment while it was getting renovated so we were living in different places. Also you know. My husband was away for work thousand miles away and that's when I burn through games and now that he's back it's not my number one priority you know he's my arms your arms or your number linebacker put in that we're coming back so I still haven't finished breath of the while they still haven't finished dead reduction too Because came to damn big nowadays can we. Can we speak. You've finished fire watch. I did but that was a long time ago that I'm currently working. That's the kind of thing I should focus on like mobile games like. I'm GonNa the hand on that goose game. He was going to say you could probably finish untitled loose game. Yeah I'M NOT GONNA be able to resist getting New Star Wars game. Fallen order came highly recommended over Thanksgiving by my nephews. Who I trust I Reviews are saying it's very difficult and the boss battles are very very hard. Can we just game designers to stop with the boss battles there. It's just memorizing patterns earns. That's all it is. That's the most terrible thing about games inventory management second. Most terrible thing but I I'm going to do it then. I'm going to beat it this year. And you got this thing all right. Well what is your new resolution. Okay well I have a personal I don't know if this is gonNA qualify. Personal fitness resolution share. I am going to get at least one. AP They don't necessarily have your mind disguise. Look I have never I am fifty one held. Ms Years old never had an APP. Not One One Big One but You know even when I was swimming competitively we just just carry their weight around the midsection. It's just what we do. I couldn't figure out why was not losing the spare tire. Even when I was really active and then I went to a wealth and family get together and I was like Oh Ooh here. It is genetic destiny but unfortunately it just gets easier as you can see. This is the thing I got. This is why I'm doing this year as a matter of factors if I don't do do it now. My metabolism not getting any faster so I am going up. Push through this thing and actually That's my commitment over the course of this this year. Now it's going to require some sacrifice even more sacrifice than I have been making 'cause I you know I enjoy the occasional post-prandial tipple take care of an evening dry Sherry. Perhaps them that's going to have to lot of. That's going to happen. That's just that doesn't qualify. My other quick resolution is that I'll I will start up the D. campaign here at NPR. which which I've been promising to do even if that means? I have the EMMETT which I don't want to do because I know I'm a lousy because all I want is for my players to love me so I I just when I was a kid. I got a lot of popular kids at school. They came over to my house. We play Du not just kept throwing super powerful magical items. That broke the game. I I mean at one point that killed loaf queen of Demon went pits. They killed a spider God an unkillable spider. God which you know. You're just not supposed to be able to do. The game is written so you cannot not kill her and I had to kill her and get lots and lots of did did I think I just WANNA be loved. So Yeah I'm so both of those things all right Stephen Thompson resolution time. You are up first. We're going to listen to what you resolved last chair. I resolve to go out more and take in as much pop culture as possible with other people. Remember when we used to go to the movies. Together I used to take in a lot of this stuff kind of in collaboration with other people. And then talk about it afterward. Instead of slinging is linking off to press screenings and then disappearing or watching screeners in my house or on my laptop. I want to do things with other people now. Quantifiable you want quantifiable. All I will give you one quantifiable metric by which I will judge whether this New Year's resolution was a success in two thousand nineteen I will go to the opera the you follow. You can't see me holding up my hands as if to signify that I've scored quarter touchdown or that. Someone has just scored a touchdown. I we went to the opera opera as a team in part because I said on this show in twenty nine hundred I'm GonNa go to the opera so twenty twenty. I resolved to acquire some expensive jewelry. No we did. We went to the operas. We saw Rigoletto at the and the Metropolitan Opera in New York City. And you can find that episode in the feed. We did a whole show about it with our friend. Trey Graham our dear dear opera loving friend Trey. Hey you've been such a smashing success in your past one. What is your next one? One thing that I also resolved to twenty thousand that I didn't do as much was taken a lot of pop pop culture with other people and the one area where I've started to my toe in and have a tiny bit of success is going to concerts with my fifteen year. Old daughter she has suddenly had a huge musical awakening where she is in love with specifically the music that I listened to in college. She loves Green Day. I she loves Nirvana and so we've started to like to take her to a couple of concerts. We took her to a sleater Kinney show. We took her to Edessa show in two thousand twenty. I resolved to take take my daughter to at least one concert a month for the entire year all because because it is such an opportunity to enjoy these things together together now one way for example that we enjoyed slater Kenny together was we got to a point at the venue where we said okay. The show's about to begin. She handed me her phone and disappeared for ninety minutes. When the show is over and everybody was filing out of the venue she strolled back like nothing had happened so I don't understand the Porsche? Gave you her phone so I couldn't call her or tracker down a Mola one other resolution for twenty twenty. I intend to you partake of what I am calling. Silence Social Media Saturday's doesn't necessarily have to be Saturday but one day every week I will not only not I post on social media which I take days off from that all the time but I will not read social media for at least one day every week in twenty twenty in a year when which a lot of people are going to be doing a lot of things on social media. I'm trying to check out of it as much as I. Can you stronger than I am. I hear Ya I've been I've been pulling back some. I'm from from twitter myself so I hear that I appreciate that thing to do. I think it is too aright Stephen. Good job I'm watching you. All right cat chow. Let us revisit your resolution from last year this year in two thousand nineteen. I WANNA watch every film or short that Sandra was in the project and I don't want to have to watch stuff. Wow wait a minute hold on. It's much then. I won't do anything but you should do. I'll tell you what you should do. We will have people submit the ten grey's anatomy episodes. Yeah during her. Yeah that you must see in order to understand what she has done on grey's anatomy because she was wonderful on grey's anatomy so we'll ask people to tweet us a PCH. And tell us the ten Christina using episode of Grey's anatomy that you need to see because I agree fifteen or sixteen seasons is a lot of you don't have to watch until she left but but still at the same time but we will get people to submit some episodes for you to watch list. I'm excited so I thought thought that this was going to be a resolution that I would absolutely destroy it. You know because like we had that Michael B Jordan near where I watched every single episode of parenthood. I I feel like I really went in. And I'm such a fan of Sandra. Oh because I just I love her and everything that I've seen previously before starting this resolution and this year I just didn't really make the time to do it besides killing eve. I Did Watch the movie Meditation Park that she was directed by Meena Shem and. I don't know I just couldn't really get into I think partially because I've been working on this book. And she sort of looks like my mom. And so there's this uncanny nece there that really kind of makes me pause and my tracks or stop in my tracks but Maybe twenty twenty will be the year of Sandra. Oh again I don't know that seems reasonable. Yeah I think you can give it another try to knock any grey's anatomy episodes at all. Now I didn't all right. Do you have a fresh resolution for twenty twenty. I do okay so growing up. I did not really speak Cantonese or mandarin or any version of Chinese with my family and that has always been something that I've wanted to try to address by taking more Chinese glasses. I WANNA watch more movies directed by Hong Kong or Cantonese directors where it's in Cantonese with subtitles subtitles English. Because I think that that could be a really good way just to absorb more of the language and especially Rom coms or you know some genre. That is pretty easy to understand and where you know maybe there is a little bit of a of a plot that is easier to digest with fewer characters so if anybody has any suggestions for that please tweet feet at me. I would love to start doing that. Cool so Well Gee that's everybody's all right. Let's hear mind from last year. I have a couple of resolutions that are related to one's I've made in the past. I want to continue to expand the diversity of the stuff that I watch and read specifically. I'm trying to make sure it's inclusive of Native people and people with disabilities. I think those are both populations that I have sometimes uh-huh missed In my efforts to broaden but my big resolution that I would name. I was trying to figure out whether I could decide to go a year without grisly early murders watching grisly murders. I think because you're talking about in popular. Yes exactly I think because of the demands of my job. I can't actually commit to not watching any grisly murders editors. I am going to commit to really selecting against Grizzly and bleak things because I don't think it's good for me when I have the choice. It's in my own life. I'm going to try to seek out books and films that have other Pines of drama besides bleakness and misery That comes from violence and the mistreatment of people. Because I'm really tired. So yeah in two thousand Nineteen Watch and read about out fewer grisly murders that is equal. You know. I think I did this. Accidentally I don't know that I remembered that I specifically had a resolution about this but when I look back at the things that I really loved twenty nineteen I do think that I largely kept out of the business of grisly murder watching thing as much as possible There were exceptions when I had to see things for work So I think I think he did this this to some degree I will say particularly enjoyed following some indigenous folks on twitter and some disability disability advocates. Who have really helped? I don't know that I've done as much Taking of people's work as I ultimately want to do but definitely Ha- that has been helpful. Helpful to kind of broaden my perspective so that that I did do and I did that one quite mindfully did that one Intentionally remembering that resolution so for this year. I recently either saw conversation on twitter or read something where somebody was talking about phenomenon that I have noticed in myself which is we. We have reached a point where there is so much new content available that all I wanna do is watch things I've already seen on that flex it's almost like it. EXPANDS AND EXPANDS AND EXPANDS EXPANDS and. Then it's so overwhelming that you just collapse in on yourself and watch the same season of Svu that you've already seen it's like when you're or example speaking of trying to watch fewer grisly murders. So I'm doing a poor job in the sense that I still do. Watch a lot of law and order. It's like when your house is so messy that all you can do is take a nap. And it's it's sort of. It's a specific phenomenon. I've started to talk to people about where people are marathoning shows. They've already seen because it's hard to pick something so so. I'm not necessarily trying to get rid of the marathon. I'm trying to get rid of the already been there on so I'm trying not a to lose hours and hours just binging things I know I've already seen or already seen in some cases more than once hunts because you can really just turn on those law and order marathons or movie marathons. Well I might make an exception for Brooklyn nine mom on man but within reason is there a metric here is there like how can you metric. Let's see what would I call the metric. I I am going to try to watch no more than two episodes of law and order of for all like like that. I'm GonNa Make It until into the twenty nineteen one yes absolutely. So that's that's my resolution. Okay we want to hear about your resolutions. Chance for twenty twenty-five US on facebook facebook dot com slash P. C. H. R. on twitter page. H When we come back. We're going to make our predictions for the New Year. So stick around. Did you get a smart speaker for a gift over the holidays. Well consider it the gift that keeps on giving right because it can help you keep up with the news. Just say play. NPR take your your local NPR station. And all your favorite. NPR shows as well. Welcome back now. It's time to make some pop culture predictions Glenn Before we make our prediction we are going to listen to last year's prediction this is always an agonizing for all of us. So I'm I'm with you All right here is Glenn prediction for two thousand nineteen captain. America's is going to die. You guys there's no other way around it in a vendor's endgame Just negatively it's inevitable. They're gonNA bring everybody back spoiler they're going to bring all these superheroes that vanished in the great snap. Scher when you do do that when you hit the reset button like that even if there's you know all kinds of plot mechanics and the way it doesn't it's not satisfying so there have to be sacrifices and who in the entire Universe is made to make a sacrifice Steve Rogers Captain America in Infinity. War over and over again. He kept saying we don't trade life for life. We don't trade life for life. But the story of of Steve Rogers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that he's got this moral center which is inflexible and the universe around him rubs up against against that and tries to change him so I think he works best as an inspiration kind of the marble soon Semitic in versus superman and if he does sacrifice himself while saving the universe it will call back to his very first appearance in captain. America the first Avenger when we meet this character what he does as a skinny. CGI Skinny Steve Rogers is is throw himself on a what turns out to be a secret to save the recruits around him. So captain. America's GonNa die one hundred percent ninety percent chance ironman also buys it Before we give the updates say boiler alert feel free to use your thirty second skip button this time. Only if you would like to skip past this so Glenn how did how did it go the outcome of the number one movie on the planet. I know there's no getting ready. Beefed beefed it hundred percent captain America. No I'd say ninety percent iron man so I was happy with the logic that I laid out. There was air tight what I neglected. Is that Ironman kind of started the MCI when he goes out that phase of the MCI symmetry to that. There's a book ended nature to that. Well and I also would say he'd. Steve did kind of make a sacrifice in the sense that he absented himself from the world for a period of time and the way he did that was by giving himself something that he didn't get before are so the act of sex self-sacrifice starts his career and an act of rewarding himself ends that there's a symmetry they're just coming. Yeah all right well you you took a big swing. You were bold and wrong all right. What's your life story both? What's your prediction for twenty twenty the streaming wars will get their first major casualty? Actually thought about making this my prediction. Big Streaming Service is going to go under not not like acorn. Td Writ Box. That's one of the biggies The last time when folded was film struck back in two thousand eighteen. And the reason I think this is going to happen again is because the cause of that was just the way that Warner's media restructured so so like everything kind of went higgledy-piggledy on then it wasn't fault of theirs. There was nothing wrong with their plan. Just other things impinged. We are living in a ceaseless churn of mergers and acquisitions wins and restructurings and this is just going to keep happening. So all of these streaming services are gonNA keep running into that and at some point this year a big ones going to go down. I endorse it unless it's wrong. In which case I still all right. Thanks Glenn Steven I want to go back to your prediction for last year. Let's hear it. I think best picture will be the favourite. I think album of the year. We'll be Casey Moss graves. Because I love both that movie and that album I have to predict for the Super Bowl bears over patriots because the universe has to balance out in terrible terrible ways finally from my lips to God's ears I predict the collapse of Facebook I'll interesting I'm done via coupled with the rise of a new and more idealistic social so media giant perhaps coupled with kind of the cleaning of the Internet in two different camps kind of the way you see the cleaning of people into different camps on Cable News. Ah I see the rise of another social media force that kind of causes facebook to suffer some of the effects experienced by something like my space. Yes you're already seeing glimmers of this were like you've got that one woke friend who's like managed to delete their facebook page. I think you're going to see more of a push toward people just getting off a facebook trying to distance themselves from social media in general but really pulling away from facebook as any kind of a community online. I WANNA give some some sort of quantifiable metric for that. I'm going to see that facebook's stock which has already dropped some this year drops thirty percent in two thousand nine Concrete very specific predicting some massive tectonic. Shift that totally did not well. I look in fairness to your prediction. I am on facebook last but I do think a lot of people are on facebook a lot less. Yeah I do think that is happening. Happening shift where a lot of people were deactivating and posting about it. Okay so I made four predictions. It's like a flip of the coin. If you had a four sided Coin Casey Moss Graves did in fact. When album of the year best picture went to green book Super Bowl was patriots. Over Rams and a really boring game and know that did not happen with facebook. So I'm going to try to get get back on the old horse and try again. Stephen I mean in your defense there are a lot of other things. Take talk with. Don't quite understand which I understand what the youth love so I do feel like there are other things that are starting to. Maybe we feel some of issues of face but I I got. Prediction is only part wrong. Culturally shifting toward goodness. I don't know but Yeah I mean decency talk maybe no I never. I never should have suggested that decency would play a role in an can hope all right. Hey Buddy what's on deck for Twenty Twenty since its traditional do Oscars grammys super bowl. Once upon a time in Hollywood I think will win best picture. It is a love letter to old Hollywood. Would what could be a bigger slice of Oscars catnip for Alvear. I'M GONNA say Billy Bush over Liz. Oh afterward they team up into a remix together other because that's how how things go for Super Bowl. I'm going to say Ravens over seahawks. As for my other prediction I predict. I keep going hopeful with these and maybe that says something about my about my personality that I keep being hopeful and wrong but I predict a certain amount of knocking down of barriers barriers to women in music particularly in the fields of country. Music and hip hop country. Radio is famously dominated. By what's known as Bro country a bunch of dudes with with one syllable in their first and last name singing about Tight fitting clothing and that you have all these amazing women country who have hard time getting played on the radio. I think think some of that will ease up twenty twenty. My metric is an album of the year nomination for the singer. Ashley McBride Who is celebrated on this show before she. She has a new album coming out next year. I predict it will be nominated for album of the year. And the grammies. And I'M GONNA GO AHEAD FOR HIP hop. I'm GONNA say an album of the year nomination for Meghan the stallion Yeah Very Nice Nice. I like it it's concrete. It's bold and it does and it doesn't rely relies partly on goodness but that could also be mercenary so sure. Yeah so that would still account thank you very much. Buddy cat chow. It is time to turn. Our lonely is to you What is cats prediction for? Twenty nineteen. What was it? I predict that the good place which is a TV show that I started watching accidentally because someone told me to watch this is us on trade it up. Yeah I predict that for the Golden Globes best. TV show slash comedy. Hear something from Your Lips to God's ears yes S. fingers crossed and I also predict that this book by the Poet Ocean. Wong is going to do really well. The book is called on Earth. Where briefly gorgeous ocean is this amazing poet where his first book of Poetry Night Sky With exit wounds? It just blew me away and already. The book has been getting a lot of buzz. It's a novel. It's about a young Vietnamese American boy who kind of comes to terms with his identity. I just see getting long listed for a national book award for Fiction and other things and I feel like it's going to get a lot of acclaim and it comes out in June of two thousand nineteen. Okay let's start the second one spot on spot on on so happy for Ocean. It was such a good book. I hope that listeners. You have read it the the other thing. That is really neat. Is that ocean and I actually. I didn't mention it last year but we went to the same high school but did not know. Each other did not have We had to two years of overlap. Lap did not know each other so von was long listed for the National Book Award version which is amazing and he also wanted macarthur genius grant. That's pretty good. I really think you I don't know I. I think I do feel what Stephen was saying before. Which is that furthest predictions nations? They are always so hopeful or like. Please let the thing I love I really really do. I'm a good placing didn't happen. No so what is What do you have for twenty twenty? What's your prediction? So this is a very specific one. Also I recently started following Michelle Kwan on instagram degrom and have really enjoyed her posts. She does this really wonderful thing where she puts on rollerblades and goes to an empty parking lot in desert freestyle style skating and she was also on queer eye as a special guest this past year. So my prediction is that next year. Her lifestyle brand is I'm just going to emerge in some way. Maybe it's a netflix steal. Maybe it's a cooking show because she'll post a lot of stuff on instagram Or maybe it's just kind of if becoming more of a presence again because Michelle Kwan had a political career after her figure skating one and I am just personally excited head but also genuinely think that maybe she will. I don't know that she's working on something Yeah interesting show. There was another one which there was another prediction that I had that as much more tangible which is parasite by Bong Jun Ho. I think slash I want aunt slash. I really do think that he is going to get best director for either Golden Globe or an Oscar. I think that's extremely extremely implausible. Yeah yeah very plausible. All right thank you very much cat. My prediction go ahead Jessica. Net flicks is trying right. EAT everybody's lunch. That's the that's the rule of Netflix. If you're out there making money they're trying to figure out how to eat your lunch. I think the next thing for them is live sports. It just has other places make a lot of money off of it now. Netflix is not gonNa to live stuff yet that I can think of but Hulu has has and some of the other places have and Jessica was helping me think through what would be the most likely sport for them to get into why we decided soccer walker. They're going to get into soccer because it's a global brand and on a global scale. You're by far best off working with soccer so I am going to boldly predict. Today you will see the beginning of movement. I don't know how close they'll get but some kind of movement this year for Netflix to get into live sports aids a bold prediction variable bolt. That is what I'm going to the metric is if there's even a press release you so not even oppress not even anything. I think I looked really. It's Jessica's fault not so what I will say is there continues to be a lot. A lot of movement toward kind of getting live events off of exclusively broadcast as I mentioned in there who has live sports and they have run a lot of very airy specific promos about the fact that they have live sports there's a lot of around like ESPN plus and all these other streaming services. There's a lot of movement Matt but now from Net flicks which was sort of the heart and soul of my my prediction so it was a complete and total and utter with and so I'm going to try tried to make it easier for myself this year. It's a compact prediction very simple idea. Three words baby yoder movie and announcement or some kind of some kind of rumor or announcement of a baby. A YODA movie. If you've been watching the man delorean on Disney plus or even if you haven't you have probably seen the little thing that is not a baby e Yoda. It's a thing that looks like iota but it's small but it drinks tea that's not a baby. It walks around and drinks tea resolved. Baby baby no iota issue number now. It's possible that baby. Yoda will burn. Burn very bright and then be forgotten but that doesn't happen in Star Wars so many people still care about Boba Fett man. We'll see those pork dolls everywhere were and that's been quite a while just right now. There are little things that you can buy. That are to put on the top of a Pie That's a true fat baby movie now it might be Disney plus only movie that counts olafs. Big Adventure Insurance does not have to be a theatrical release in these star wars either thing or the big thing what you know what I'm talking about but it can be streaming still counts so baby YODA movie. That's fair market. All right and that is my prediction for twenty twenty. We want to hear of course your predictions for twenty twenty find us on facebook facebook dot com slash h come to us on twitter at A. PCA that does bring us to the end of our show.

All inclusive. Luck pop culture. Hello. And welcome to the MC entertainment podcast brought to you by the MC podcast network. I'm Sarah, and I your host for this episode. Hope you're having a great day, and we're here to talk about, of course, entertainment news. What is going on in all his various aspects of the world of entertainment? Let's start with the sports slash celebrity news. And that is that beyond say and has attended game three of the NBA finals. That is, of course, the Golden State Warriors versus the Toronto Raptors the Toronto, Raptors worse successful tonight, one twenty three two one nine making them two games up to one over the Golden State Warriors. This was the first game to be held in Oakland during this season. So apparently beyond say and Jay z showed up partway through the first. Quarter. And of course, made social media just kind of explode. That's pretty much what they do. Right. They. They arrived if as I said, a few minutes in to the first quarter, and at caused a bit of a frenzy, they were seated next to Golden State Warriors, owner, Joe lacob on the court, and, you know, be Jay Z's dressed in a sweatshirt and Beyonce, as dressed in this amazingly, fabulous gold concoction that I had not even sure I can describe to you, but it's, it's very beyond say and it can't think that I would wear that to a basketball game. But what do I know I'm not beyond? It is it is very impressive. I mean if you're if you're looking to make an entrance of this outfit will do it. She was also wearing gold heels and she accessorized with a by far leather clutch purse neither of them wore jerseys for a specific team all though beyond cited were goal. So that could probably provide a hint as to who they were rooting for they do attend. Several busboy games per year. I saw several mentions of this being a date night for the couple. Not sure if that is actually true or not. But not a pad, not a bad thing to, to have a date night for get dressed up, and go hang out at the NBA finals, speaking of Jay z. He is, he's had a pretty interesting week himself as he is officially hip hop. First billionaire, according to Forbes, and this is from NBC news. The Brooklyn rapper and mogul, whose real name is Sean Carter has amassed a fortune worth one billion dollars. According to Forbes, making him one of only a handful of entertainers to become a billionaire and the first hip hop artist to do. So his sprawling business empire includes stakes in liquor art real estate and big name, companies like Uber. He has one twenty two Grammys is amazing. He's launched his own brands. He has his own clothing label called Rocca wear, which was sold to Iconex for more than two hundred million and twenty two thousand seven sorry. I should have said he launched his own clothing label. So the, the, the relatively shortlist of entertainment industry, billionaires also includes Star Wars, creator, George, Lucas, Oscar award winning director Steven Spielberg media mogul Oprah Oprah Winfrey. Excuse me, Oprah Winfrey and retired NBA star, Michael Jordan, in this was, according to a list published last year by Forbes, Forbes said it calculated the artists NetWorth by evaluating his positions in private companies, adding his income, and subtracting a quote healthy amount to account for a superstar lifestyle. The magazine added that it ran its numbers by outside by outside, experts to make sure it's estimates were fair and conservative, so interesting. I guess it's not like they just go knock on someone's door and say, hi can we have your financial records? We'd like to write about you being a billionaire. Jay z is forty nine they officially became a billion dollar pair in two thousand seventeen with a combined net worth of more than one point one six billion dollars beyond say who is thirty seven has an individual net worth of more than three hundred fifty million, according to Forbes calculations the hip hop star who comes closest to Jay z is Diddy with an estimated net worth of eight hundred and twenty five million in twenty fourteen. It was thought that Dr dre would snag that first hip hop artist billionaire spot when his beats company was sold to apple for more than three billion dollars. But Forbes estimated his net worth at the time would have been almost eight hundred million saying capital gains taxes, would eat a big chunk so well, congrats to Jay z for being that for, you know, hitting that milestone and being the first hip hop. Artist to do. In other music, news, and in other news, relating to what was on television. Tonight, the CMT awards aired this evening. Some of the winners include Carrie Underwood cry.

That is from CMT crossroads de awards show was hosted by little big town and included performances from Luke combs Merrin Morris. Luke Bryan and an all-star Tanya. Tucker rendition of delta dawn, so it was a an exciting night tonight on television between the NBA finals and the CMT awards in more music news. We'll go back to the story. We talked about in a previous episode that Adam LeVine is leaving the voice, even though it had been previously stated that he was coming back. For season. Seventeen his wife Bahati prince Liu has opened up about this decision to leave the voice, and on an interview on today today, June fifth. She explained why it's a good thing. She said, she's happy that she that Adam LeVine is going to be spending more time at home with her and their two kids, dusty to and GIO, one now that he is moving on from serving as a coach on the voice, but she said, she's not sure what they plan on doing. She's quoted as saying, his departure, is good news for me. Good news for the kids. He is on tour at the moment. He's excited to get home. And for the first time have nothing to do. I'm like, what am I going to do with you with him? In addition to admitting she and Adam still figure out how to spend their time. She also gushed about how much she loves raising her kids with her hubby and how she's taking all special moments as much as possible. She's quoted as saying it's going great. I'm in it. I'm in the middle of it. It's amazing motherhood. I think as you all know is such a it's such an incredible experience in really something that you take so seriously and gives you so much joy. We are having fun. She also revealed that she tries to make sure her family is together as much as possible by joining Adam on tour with maroon five whenever she and the girls. Can she said I used to go a lot the girls came when he did America. We stayed in New York for ten days, and they kind of did all around we've done a few trips here and there, the older, they get and the easier and more fun. It will be so she was on the today show. Chuck about her work in protecting endangered black rhinos by supporting and being part of organization. Save the rhino trust Namibia. So she was on today to talk about that work. And of course, you know, they asked her about hubby and what's going on with them. It sounds like they will have more time together. Which is always nice when you have small children, it will definitely be interesting to see how the voice changes with Adam no longer being a part of the show of Asli the judges have changed each season, although Adam and. Blake Shelton have been fixtures. So it will just be interesting to see how it changes now that you don't have that energy and relationship that Blake and Adam bring to the show when they are on together.

Welcome back to the GMC entertainment podcast before the break, we talked about news from the world of music. And now we are moving on to a story about Jason momoa, which is always fun. You may have seen a recent video where in Jason momoa shaved his beard, there was a lot of comments on that people who were not thrilled with him shaving his beard. Some people liked a lot of people didn't. But he has. He used that video to raise awareness against single use plastic water bottles. And he is doing that again. He has grown a bit of a reputation for himself as an environmental warrior. He he has a company called. Oh my goodness. M. A. N. A N, A L. You have no idea how to pronounce that man, Annette men Manoliu, so sorry. I just butchered that this company, though. Produces canned water as an alternative to single use plastic water bottles. He has now partnered with real deal Mata as part of a hilarious. P S A against plastic pollution. His video featuring Mata a former WWE superstar was just one snippet from a larger PSA from lonely whale, where they urged against these plastic water bottles. So Amoah took Instagram to promote the initiative writing since we couldn't be at the shoot. This is my and at real deal, badeah contribution to the cause Mahalo at literally wail at everyone involved in this PSA. Okay. So the video begins with momoa. Walkie still beardless walking out of a Bill. Ding wherein a vintage t shirt from the nineteen Ninety-two patera album vulgar display of power under a black long sleeved shirt. He then proceeds to slap a water bottle plastic water bottle out of nearby man's hand and says it doesn't matter how you hydrate as long as you do it without using single use plastic. He continues his crusade and slaps bottle out of Matas hands and the to stand. I'd I as memo simply says what the video then cuts to a shirtless memo in a bathtub holding champagne glass filled with ice, which he uses to numb his cut up face. There are so many sustainable alternatives, you can reach for Moen says, well, reaching for a reusable stainless steel water Balz steel bottle to fill his glass, he then continues by saying for our planet, and for our future generations who depend on it. So please, stop using single use plastic water bottle models. Momoa says taking other sip water and with that his PSA comes to an end. So clearly slapping water bottle out of a, former WWE ease hand is, is not the best, the best option. Even if you are Jason momoa, 'cause then you end up with your face beaten all the heck in about I'm sure nobody who's watching the video minds that he is. Then in about two because there are some people who love them some Jason momoa, and they are not gonna complain that he is in a bathtub. Regardless of his being the bathtub or not people are loving, the PSA, lots of supportive comments about single use plastic water bottles about alternatives, that we can use, so, regardless of what you think of the PSA, I'm grateful that it is sparking conversation, even if it is just an comments on social media. But that's where things start and then conversations can grow from there. So hopefully this PSA will get people talking. Get people thinking and maybe looking into alternatives to those single use plastic water bottles because who wants to be standing on the street and get a water bottle slapped other hand by Jason momoa now that I said that, I can think of probably a lot of people wouldn't mind, they'd be like, hey, Jason momoa. I just had an encounter. And it was awesome. But raising awareness is always good. In other celebrity news. A never really thought I would be talking about MC. Donna and to park. But hey, why not it's celebrity news. And apparently Madonna has lost an appeal to block to buck break-up letter from going up for auction. I had no idea such thing even existed. Because apparently I lived under a rock at that point in my life. There was a handwritten break-up letter from two Pasha Kerr addressed to Madonna while he was incarcerated in nineteen ninety five and that litter will hit the auction block at some point in July TMZ reported on Tuesday that the pop legends final attempt to stop the sale of the love, lower would be blocked legal docs, seen by TMZ say a New York state appeals court ruled that Madonna couldn't pursue legal action against her former art consultant, Darlene lutts, or the auction house, that will sell the items gotta have rock and roll based on a release. She side way back in two thousand four. The letter dated January fifteenth nineteen ninety-five fines to pock breaking. Things off with Madonna following romantic dating period, in part because of their racial differences. It's quoted as saying for you to be seen with a black man wouldn't in any way, jeopardize your career. If anything it would make you seem that much more open and exciting. But for me at least in my previous perception, I felt due to my image, I would be letting down half of the people who made me what I thought I was. I never meant to hurt you. I clearly was living under a rock in nineteen ninety-five. Maybe not under a rock, but I was living in Montana. And I apparently did not pay any attention to celebrity news, because I had no idea that this even ever happen. Well, just admit that. But hey, I'm it's interesting. It's just interesting. The there was a letter. It's interesting to me that it's now being auctioned off. I'm curious to find out how much it goes for and who buys it. Sure, you know there's a lot of lot of two bucks. Fans out there who would love to have this kind of memorabilia, and it's, it's definitely kind of on the unique side in terms of Madonna, and to poke both being very, very big names in the music industry. So I would imagine that it would go for I have no idea, but something more than I can afford, if I were interested in buying a letter leg that, but yeah, so apparently not apparently Madonna has lost the appeal. She had tried to block the letter from going up. But apparently, there was a release that she signed in two thousand and four. And she cannot block this letter from being auctioned off who knew and all kinds of interesting, things, I want to move on now to Star Wars, and Star Trek, sort of, but not really. The story involving Star Wars Mark Hamill and star Trek's William Shatner, although not about either Star Wars or Star Trek. Exactly. It's about Schalke. The creepy little dull murderous doll that Gedo who is now returning to the big screen this summer. I didn't think we needed another Chucky movie. But what do I know this time, though, the doll is being voiced by none other than Luke Skywalker? Mark Hamill is going to voice Chucky. He is well known for doing voice work. He's done a lot of voice work after Star Wars, and bef- after after Star Wars and before Star Wars between Star Wars, he has played various animated irritations of DC's jokers since the early nineties now that the actor is out there promoting the upcoming horror film. Some of his fellow legends are trolling. His switch to child. Play William Shatner, who, of course, is very well known for playing captain. Kirk in the original Star Trek had a hilarious response response to Hamill's latest Chucky tweet. He said happy to know that the next generation of youth will be deathly afraid of you. You have become your father seriously. Congratulations on the role. The original tweet was Mark hamels tweet on June twenty-first. Are we having fun? If they don't let us play. They all go away. There's several knife, emojis creepy, and then at child's play booby at hashtag child's played. Oh, goodness. But I love. I don't know. Sometimes Twitter makes me laugh. Sometimes it's crazy. And the things that happened on social media. Make totally roll my eyes, but other times, you know, it's all in good fun, apparently Hamill has yet to respond to the tweet by. What could be his rival? At least in terms of Star Trek first Star Wars, one other. On other tweets that oh my God. That is so creepy ahead enough in the eighties, but just because of at Hammill himself, I will do the sacrifice somebody else, wrote live long and prosper and made the force be with the two of you. That's a mixture of John RAs. But that's okay. Recently child. Child's play producer Seth Graham. Smith spoke with cinema blend on the upcoming movie sharing what fans can expect from the horror reboot. He said, we sort of lean into more of the L slash kaslow's story hint at a Chucky that is driven by something different than he is the original series when he's Charles Lee Ray and he's just a truly psychopathic killer in the body of a doll. Also, there is the mother slum story, the emotional component of the movie, which I feel the movie really delivers, and then above all that, just the intensity, the gore the fact of the movie is rated R that it really does go, there, when it goes there, I think the movie looks big is much bigger than a lot of movies that are size, very affordable movie. We are. But we had a big we had big emissions. Those are I'd say the primary things were going for. I love Marquel. But even Marquel is not enough to make me go see this movie. I haven't seen any of them, and I am not going to start now despite my love of Mark Hamill, and, despite finding, it hilarious that Mark Hamill, and William Shatner are trading will not trading yet, but I'm sure it will happen trading barbs on Twitter about the role speaking of horror movies, apparently, halloween's, Jamie Lee, Curtis, and Jason Blum have been quote, discussing stuff that is specific. Prior to the release of Halloween. Last October bloom house. Productions Jason Blum said they weren't going to decide if we do a sequel or not until we see the reaction to this movie given that the film was quite the success, both critically and commercially, it's more than likely that we have not seen the end or the last of Michael Myers, I'm gonna tell you right now, haven't seen any of these movies either and not gonna do it again. Love, jamie. Lee curtis. Love her a lot. But Nope, not gonna do it at any rate. Jason Blum posted a photo on Twitter. Earlier today of Jamie Lee, Curtis and himself with the caption teasing where discussing stuff. Now the stuff in question, of course, could be anything, but Jamie Lee Curtis is holding a an action figure of Laurie strode. So I suppose that there is a possibility that they are. Are discussing a possible sequel, very cute picture at any rate, and they I don't know. They could be discussing whatever. Halloween. Co-writer Danny McBride had previously teas that they already had a few ideas of where they want to go with a sequel. He said, we definitely have ideas of what we want to of what we would do. I think we did not allow ourselves to really indulge those ideas until the movie came out. We just wanted to put all our hopes and dreams and having this film stick the landing, but we do have thoughts and ideas of what we could possibly do we hadn't invested a ton of time on them. But now we're being asked to figure it out. There are definitely talks on whether we will do more of them. And we're just trying to see what makes sense. So it looks like more than just Jason Blumin and Jamie. Lee Curtis are discussing stuff, people are at least thinking about stuff, and contemplating stuff and figuring out if that stuff is going to result in another Michael Myers, Halloween movie. Cool good for them. A lot of people love the franchise and that's awesome, not gonna go see it. But that's just. Me and my, my one, my one not going to see it as not going to make a difference to the franchise. It is time to take our second break of the podcast.

Slightly ridiculous. It's not ridiculous per se. It's just to me, it makes me laugh because Bill and Ted is really happening. This, this, the third billon Ted movie is actually happening. They've been talking about it for a while. And I loved the first one, I it was hilarious to teenage me when it came out. And, but now, I can't quite imagine middle-aged me watching middle-age Bill. It could go, so many different directions. But it has been announced that there has been, there's been some new casting announced, and that is that Bridget loudly pain who has been on atypical and Samara weaving, who has been on three billboards have joined the cast of Bill and Ted face the music weaving will play thea the daughter of Alex, Alex, winters character, Bill. Well, Lundy pain will play Billy, the daughter of Kiana Reeves, Ted. And now I'm just realizing that the Bill header parents and, oh, my goodness. Producers, Scott croup said in a press release recently when we saw Samara and together, it was like deja vu. It was exactly the way we felt when we first saw kion, Alex. We are so thrilled to have this funny and unique pair, join the Bill and Ted team. Dean Parasad is directing the time travel comedy, and it is been written by writers, Chris Matheson, and Ed Sullivan, it is set to open August twenty first twenty twenty and it does follow Bill and Ted's, excellent adventure, which came out in nineteen eighty nine and Bill and Ted's bogus journey nineteen in nineteen Ninety-one. Again, teenage me is super excited middle is. Middle. Weirdly, excited and also frightened. But I. Yeah, my brother, and I still have random quotes from Bill and Ted. There was also digital. There was also an animated Bill and Ted's series on for a while. I have no idea how long it was on. But a cartoon animated Saturday morning, Bill and Ted cartoon it, it was, I honestly, can't remember anything except that one of them once said, what odious aroma assails, my nose holes or something along those lines. That's the only thing I remember from it. But apparently that stuck with me. So, yes, I will watch it. Eventually, I will go see the new Bill Ted movie I'm not ashamed to admit it won't go see the horror movies that we talked about in the previous segment. But I'll go see Bill. Ted what does that say about me? I'm okay with that at any rate is time to wrap up this episode of the GMC entertainment podcast, thank you so much for joining me as I admitted all of my.

The Perils Of Animals Caught In Storms; Trisha Yearwood's 'Every Girl'

"From NPR and WBZ. I'm Jeremy Hobson. I'm Robin Young. It's here now. In Spain. World leaders are gathering for COP. Twenty five this is the conference of the parties those signed onto the UN treaty to combat climate change. The Twenty Fifteen Paris Agreement was forged at Cop Twenty one. President trump is withdrawing the US from that that agreement and yesterday. UN Secretary General Antonio Gutierrez pulled no punches. He said the largest emitters aren't pulling their weight and the point of no return is no longer over the Horizon Matt. McGraw is the environment correspondent for the BBC. He's in Madrid and Matt. We should say that The Democrat Nancy Pelosi is leading a delegation of Democratic lawmakers was to Madrid with this is a two week meeting launches a year long effort. What's the goal or the Mangold? Robin is to try and advance the promises that were made under the Paris climate agreement five years ago to try and get all the major countries and the smaller ones as well to commit to new plans that will be put in place by the end of next year when this meeting moves onto Glasgow in the UK and that is the whole point of all that is to try and ensure that the global temperatures don't rise by more than one point fight degrees which we're heading towards now by twenty thirty if those new stronger plans don't come into place and he said in his talks to reporters yesterday this Gutierrez ars. We're here to find answers for article. Six not to find excuses. What does that mean? Yeah six has been a bit of a bug bare on this process for the last year are so it's about how you use. Carbon markets how US markets to allow countries to trade some of their emissions to other countries so there's a lot of countries with vested interest in this the Russia Brazil countries who've done well in the past outer selling these types of missions want to continue to be able to use these types of the credits as they're called lots of other countries. Say Look you ruin the whole process of you if you try and keep value in these things. So there's a big dispute over that has gone on for a year now and it might. William to Madrid is wrong. This is apparently one of the most contentious things it's going to be hammered out over the next couple of weeks and what about the big hitters China the US the US in particular dealer with a president who has said he doesn't believe in even the theory behind all of this that the climate crisis is manmade and he's rolling back a lot of the Obama era environmental protection regulations. What's the sense there? How does that feel there? Yeah I mean obviously this might be the last year are in which the US negotiating team takes part in this process and so I think for a couple of years now people have been quite bullish about it. They've been saying oh well we'll be able to cope. We'll we'll be able to get on. The world isn't just revolve around the United States. But I think this year right here this week. I think there's a feeling that the big polluters United United States China Brazil and many others who have set their faces almost against climate change that their input is desperately needed. If the world is really going to turn this corner owner bend the curve on this one point five degrees. I think the message from Nancy Pelosi. WHO's been speaking here to say that the United States is still in his is very welcome news news for the conference but the reality is that in a year's time one day after the next presidential election the US is officially out unless perhaps as a change of occupied and we should say the trump administration is being represented by Marsha burner cat whose principal deputy assistant secretary of state for Oceans and international environmental and and scientific affairs? Tell us also about the language that we heard from Gutierrez trying to get across that. We're almost at end game here on this issue. Talking about we have to have the political will to shift taxation from income to carbon tax pollution instead of people people. What's the sense there of how much they're going to be able to accomplish given that we've had report after report and it it starts to feel like wallpaper paper? Yeah that's certainly true. I think what sexual Geno Guiterrez is trying to outline is perhaps the most radical set of proposals any UN secretary general. Oh has ever come up with to try and deal with the problem of climate change and I think it reflects his sense of exasperation frustration. Maybe he's feeling some sense of impotence But he seems determined to drive home his point that the world is not doing enough. The ambition is not high enough and the time is incredibly short. Well and there are young people making that case you briefly about teenage climate activists Greta Timberg of Sweden she. You sailed across the ocean to the US thinking that she was going to walk to Chile where for this climate conference was supposed to be held. It was moved to Spain. Because of unrest in Chile but now she had a humpback on her cameron and sail back across to try to get to Spain. Rain is she expected to make yes providing she can find her sea legs when she gets off the boats in Lisbon. She's due to get in there tomorrow. We think and she's is likely to be here at this conference before the end of the week. She's slated to give a talk to the to the assembly. It's bizarre to think that the little known schoolgirl year ago. Oh may now. Well the the biggest draw at this event this week and perhaps next Matt McGraw Environment correspondent for the BBC in Madrid. Thank thank you so much more pleasure today. Montana Governor Steve Bullock dropped out of the race for the two thousand twenty Democratic presidential nomination former Pennsylvania Congressman Joe. SESTAK did the same yesterday which means Sixteen Democrats are still running for president joining us now is NPR political reporter. Juana Summers I WANNA awesome. Hey Jeremy So. The next debate for the Democrats is December nineteenth and so far only six have qualified. Joe Biden Elizabeth Warren Bernie Bernie Sanders Pete Buddha Judge Kama Harrison. Amy Klobuchar D. Expect more candidates to drop out of the race before then. Yeah that's certainly something that we're watching for. The the DNC has put in place far stricter rules for that six debate. And there's only give or take two weeks until the qualifying deadline while not being able to make the stage doesn't automatically mean candidate will drop out of the race something that we've seen happen with other candidates like a WHO Young Castro for example who still in it even though he wasn't on stage at does deprive the candidates of a really really important platform to introduce themselves to new support would be supporters away to raise more money so that can have a winnowing. Fact and also frankly. The calendar is just getting really laid their about only a couple of months until voting again so financial realities could really start to set in for some of these candidates that haven't been able to break into the top tier and who don't see viable path for their candidacy. CFS point there one candidate who's been kind of in the top tier all along is Joe Biden the former vice president. He is still leading in the national. Polls he's on the third day now of a week long no Malarkey bus tour in Iowa by the way the definition of Malarkey is written on the side of his bus for people who don't know what that means Early on in his campaign campaign he was saying he didn't need to win Iowa. What's the latest thinking? So I'm heading bus tour later this weekend. The former vice president is going through eighteen counties in the state that's clearly a huge investment of his time at this critical moment in the race. We heard the former vice president kind of talk about why he's doing this now over the weekend. He made the case that this is the time to peak in Iowa two months before voters start to really tune in before those first votes are cast. This is when he wants to be making that investment and spending a lot of time there and make no mistake. This is also coming as south. Bend Mayor Pete. Buddha judge is performing quite well in the state and many say that he and the former vice president competing for that same lane of centrist voters for for primary support will. Let's talk about people to judge in an ad that is now airing in Iowa. He is criticizing his rivals for their free college tuition plans. He says they they would benefit a lot of wealthier students. Here is the only one that make promises that we can keep. Look what I'm proposing is is plenty old. I mean these are big ideas we can gather the the majority to drive those big ideas through without turning off half the country before we even get into oft and how concerned are the other candidates about Buddha judges surge in the polls and what are they planning to do about it. I think there is quite a bit of concern. And if you listen to the way he talks in that ad he doesn't say the name say Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren. But you hear him clapping back to folks who have bullet plans and big ideas and saying. Hey Look I'm a guy who has this kind of big plans to now when I talked to rival campaigns about Buddha judge and how he's performing one of the biggest things they point to is the fact that while he's rising in the polls in places like Iowa and New Hampshire and polls quite well and other places with older white Americans Americans he has almost no blocking from black voters who are incredibly important to a democratic path to the nomination and he lags behind some of his reiver's like Warren and Sanders when it comes to younger voters. So that's why you see him this week. Focusing on southern states like North Carolina and South Carolina looking for new ways to connect with black voters aiming get that weakness in a number of his rivals of pointed out. Do you think that that weakness among black voters unique to Buddha judge or a lot of candidates kind of in the same level of polling when it comes to African African American voters. That's a great point. I actually don't think it's unique to him. We've seen former vice. President Biden have sort of a strong firewall with black voters particularly a commanding advantage in South Carolina but other candidates out there Massachusetts senator Elizabeth. Warren also does not poll particularly well. Among black voters we've seen Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders certainly improve improve his standing from his first presidential campaign but it would be unfair to say that people judge is the only candidate who is lacking with that key demographic and the democratic electorate. Okay that final ask you about the two new entrance into the race. And how they're doing at this point. That would be former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and for Massachusetts Governor Deval. Paul Patrick yes so Michael. Bloomberg is obviously jolted this race just by the sheer amount of money. He's been able to spend really dominating. The television airwaves was was joking with some friends who are home over the holidays that one of the only political candidates ads they saw on television over. The Thanksgiving holiday was Michael Bloomberg. He's focusing his spending in some of the early Super Tuesday states that he is targeting and those are places that some of the other candidates aren't spending as much time or money and yet as they focus on those folks four contests in Iowa New Hampshire South Carolina and Nevada Asphalt Patrick he is starting to staff up. His campaign has recently announced. Some new hires and New Hampshire and South Carolina to stay teases is Keith has strategy. But he's entering the race a lot later than many other candidates risking the possibility of not being able to get into those debates. Doesn't have enough time or a poor showing in these states that he's targeting are getting that is NPR political reporter WanNa Summers. WanNa thank you in great to have you back at NPR.

She's the country singing legend. There was great excitement earlier this year when she released every girl her first solo country album in twelve years. Here's a little the lead single every girl in this town. Aw Down Stars on Toll Hearts Taunting Zoff EH. This with every girl in this town is somebody's daughter. TRICIA earwood also has a hit food network. Show Oh Tristesse. Southern kitchen now in its fifteenth season. Vince just love her recipes but also her breezy style. I'm going to get to work on a smoky Ailey to go on toffees potatoes which is Super Yummy. So Aley is basically fancy manage. I had to look it up. I'm not sure. And did we mention that that she's married to some Guy Garth Brooks I think only the best selling solo artist of all time this week Tricia earwood hosting the country. Christmas show taking over from her a friend and mentor REBA. mcentire and she's found a few minutes to talk with US Tricia. You're welcome thank you. I'm so happy to be here. What do you think it is? You know of your life experiences that have fused together and created the TRICIA earwood. Who is this artist and also you know an artisan in the kitchen? You know what I I don't know. Oh really but I think what it is not to quote my own album but I really am sort of every girl I feel like I kind of represent most of us. Most of us. Who Cook are not chefs? You'll learn how to cook for mom or dad and I came from a very small town and wanted to be a singer since I was five years old but didn't know anybody who was doing this so I kind of feel like I'm the one who gets to do it all for all of us and I'm as surprised and excited about it. Still Twenty eight years after getting started That I get to to do it and I really am and I think that's probably why people like because they feel like I could be in the kitchen with her. It wouldn't be weird and if I dropped an egg on the floor. She wouldn't think that was a bad thing 'cause she does that too. Yeah well the girl with the wind in her hair up in the ferris wheel when the fair comes to town on the porch under the yellow light crying when the date goes wrong on Friday night. I'm just a beautiful song out. Let's listen to another one. This is Bible and a forty four. Listen he had a southern draw. The red bone never were already said was my favorite Sam. It'd be the last one. Aw Kinda Mansfield be around. Kinda my Sanofi's he had half as wide as he expand your story lack of wagon we all heart and soul song written by Ashley Mcbride and she wrote it about her dad but we understand it was a song for your dad is well. Yeah how so well. My Dad was That southern drawl line really got me actually asked Ashley if I could change. Her Lyrics said every song he sang was my favorite sound. And I asked if I could say every word he said because is my dad. Had this southern accent that was almost like foghorn leghorn say and and so he's gone now but his voice voices what I remember so much about him. It's still in my head and I think the power of a great songwriter is to be able to write something. That is so personal to them. I mean the song is about Ashley's Dad and for it to feel personal to me and this is one of those songs that when I sing it live. It really does connect with especially girls in their daddies all heart and soul. Aw and made of steel. When I was listening to that lyric about your dad I was thinking Garth Brooks? You had a hard act to follow you know because everybody's dad you know if if you have that relationship that's your I love. Would you say Garth Brooks is anything like your dad. I absolutely I mean I do think that I think that's one of the things about him that I love so much is that my dad was my biggest fan. He was a huge fan of country music. He loved and got to see a lot of my career but I always felt like at the end of the day. I was daddy's little girl and I felt veliky had my back. And he he was there to take care of me and Garth has always said. I don't want to take care of you because you need to be taken care of your independent. You do your own thing but I I want you to know that I'm here if you need me. And he is one of the last things that my dad got to see was garth and I get engaged and my dad was like okay. I feel good now now. I feel like I honestly feel like my thought. Okay Gar Scott this oh I feel a song coming onto describes that but did your dad have sparks that flew Lou from his fingertips. Let's listen to a little bit of a song that you have said is maybe something of a metaphor for your relationship with Garth Brooks. It's called the matador thrown thrown rose to the matador not sure why was to in for my was true. Heart was full. I I love the fighter and the bull. Only a woman can a very complicated mom located Ma'am bound his. I heard his cries. I gave him. I told him mm-hmm so we're picturing the matador and again you go on to say you know. His rage is made anything's faithless women wedding ring. Snakes and snails and alcohol sparks fly live from his fingertips. Words like birds fly from his lips. What an image of a Garth Brooks onstage tells more about what what is that? He agrees with me on this. I'm I've always been very dramatic even as a little girl. Before I even had any heartbreak. I would sing these songs that were so about heartbreak. The matadors written by Gretchen Peters incredibly talented singer Songwriter. And for me you know what what I felt was there is something about. I mean he loves me more than anything the world. He loves his children. More than anything in the world. But there's something about being in the musical arena. Narayan getting to do what you do that is unmatched and is something that no one can really share with you. In that moment I think he and I being the same industry comes closest to people can to sharing the railing but there is something about watching him in the ring doing what he does and sparks fly from his fingertips. I mean it is something to behold but you know words like birds fly from your lips to How whoa what's that I mean do you talk about that to you? Each talk about Something that nobody else I mean. I don't even know what it would be. I think one of the things I mean. Everybody talks about got to celebrities being married. And how hard that is and it is the only thing hard about it is because we both are really busy but I think we can that the advantage to being married to someone who does what you due to be able to talk about what you do for a living and also to have kind of an unspoken understanding of the drive and the need and the desire that feed as your soul of why you've really feel not even like you made a choice to do this but you're called to do it and so you've gotta give each other the freedom to be that because that's that's who makes him who he is and that's who makes me who I am. Yeah then that's hard for some people maybe not familiar with that centerstage to exempted in somebody else. Yeah plus you have to put up with his breakfast bowl which I understand. She's in garlic. Tortellini it is and you know what I gotta say. I've been I've been working on the cooking show and I've been releasing this album and I have been just really busy this fall and I haven't cooked at home very much and I told him yesterday or a couple of days ago at home I said the last couple of times that I have walked into the kitchen and it has smelled amazing. You have been cooking not me. And he is really good and he. He's just that guy and he. The breakfast bowl is everything. You would wanna ever eat for breakfast that you could imagine in a bowl plus toward laney and you really need to eat that and then like you don't have to eat for a week because it's a lot it's a lot. You have one of your cookbooks. I wouldn't want to hear some more music including Um you did an album of songs that Frank Sinatra own. Let's just listen to a little of comply with me it if you can use some exotic booze. There's a bar and come fly with me. Let's at SPA flyway. Wow I mean are you at the point where you're like. What else can my voice do? I mean is it fun for you to try something nothing like that and see how far were you could go. Yes so much fun. You know it's like getting out of your comfort zone a little bit as scary but also usually the most rewarding thing in an I had always loved this music my mom was a third grade schoolteacher and we would get home the afternoons and sometimes before. She'd have that little amount of time before she'd have to start dinner. We would watch some of these old movies and musicals and listened to these songs and I always felt like man. I love this music. I feel like I wish I would have been born during at that time in the thirties and forties to do this music and so I I did the record and I went to capitol records where frank recorded. I used his microphone. Some of the guys in the band were had played with frank and I was terrified. You know watching the first day and I thought they were GONNA go. This little country girl is here. This is going to be so terrible and then when I sang the first song. And they're like Oh oh okay. We're then we had the best time so I'm so glad I got a chance to do it now. Love to hear other things that you experiment with. But meanwhile the album every girl is just great and we want to hear a little of one of the other songs. This is called love you anyway. It's with Don Henley in part by the way do you think the end of the innocence was maybe one of the most perfect albums ever made perfect. Okay love him so much. Yes we young okay. We agree and he's backing you up. TRICIA earwood listless jess the key. You any a sublime that's country music. Star Tricia earwood the latest album. Every girl also hosts Tristesse southern kitchen on the food network and she'll be hosting the CNA country. Christmas show tomorrow. Night TRICIA I. I don't know how you found the time I tell you. But thank you so much. Thank you Today is cyber Monday has as if I had to tell you that and we have reached the point where today is a big day for many retailers than black. Friday is that used to be the biggest shopping day of the year for more. Let's bring Jill Schlesinger and your business analysts for CBS. News host of Jill on money. Hi Jill hello you have any money left after the shopping this morning. A little rough between radio hits this morning. We're we're already getting some early retail numbers. According to adobe analytics online sales increased by about twenty percent from last year while shopping at brick and mortar stores fell fell by about six percent is cyber Monday even a distinct thing anymore. Is it Kinda like cyber week or black November December. What what we? What are we looking Kanat here? We know that some large retailer started rolling out the deals as of November first. So imagine this your goblins come down your wreaths. Go Up and and they've gotten very smart. There is a distinct part of each of these days. Mostly because all of these large retailers have tons of data and they they are dribbling out deals based on the day so we know that today cyber Monday. You'll probably see this deepest discount UNA television however an appliance may have been a better bet on Friday. All these things said it is becoming a massive long holiday season for those who are paying attention. I noticed it is something interesting. which is that on Thanksgiving Day? Almost half of the online sales were done on mobile devices. which just made me imagine some people sitting at the Thanksgiving table looking down at their phones and oh by that yes? He's probably may have been cheaper than their therapy session that follows but yes we're shopping everywhere. So desktops smartphone tablet and it's all being tracked now some of us are actually surfing on our smartphones but purchasing on our desktops. And I think that that is really kind of this interesting trend that we are seeing in that we want to shop where and when we want to shop and retailers are actually actually changing their business models accordingly. They call it multi channel marketing essentially just making sure they are where we are. And that's why you will see some of these things that pop up in your face in places where you never realized. I guess there's no concern right now about a recession based on the fact that people are still spending so much which buddy you know if there is a concern and certainly surveys will tell us that people are having some recessionary fears bubbling up. But I think two factors that are really the important number one. We do still have a good jobs market. We're going to get another Labor Department report out this Friday. They're going to be more people employed they're going to see we'll rise faster than the rate of inflation. So that makes people feel confident. You're likely to get something like nine point. Four billion dollars in sales this day day this cyber Monday and that would be almost nineteen percent increase from last year so joe with all of this online shopping. Let's not forget about. All of those packages is that have to be used to send things out and a lot of cardboard being used. We remember that China isn't taking our recycling materials anymore. Where's all the cardboard going? That's a great question. You know the cities across the United States are talking about something called the Amazon effect and We are seeing cities trying to scramble to figure we're to send their cardboard in their plastics. And the municipality said there just isn't enough domestic ability to supply paper mills to meet the demand hand. And so unfortunately this is what's really piling up in a lot of our landfills stuff. That hasn't even been recycled that could be as Jill Schlesinger business analyst analyst with CBS News and host of Jilin money. Thank you thank you freezing rain. Rain and snow in the northeast of blocked millions of people from returning home after the Thanksgiving holiday airlines cancelled or delayed thousands of flights in anticipation of the weather but while humans can make plans to say safe during storm. Our animal friends aren't always so lucky for more. We're joined by Steve Vanilla. He's an outdoorsman and writer and the host of the Netflix show meat. Eater Steve. Welcome thank you for having me on so when a storm system headed towards a place We humans have very sophisticated weather forecasting. That often gives us enough time to make preparations maybe evacuate. What kind of capacity do animals have to sense? It's and avoid storms man You know it really depends. It seems on the kind of animal definitely fish we have a lot of sensitivity to barometric pressure and there were some studies that they work down in Florida where they happen to have some sharks that were wearing the shark equivalent of a radio collar right ahead of Hurricane. Gabriel in two thousand one. They had fourteen black tip. Sharks were wearing transmitters meters in all fourteen of them moved out to deep water off the coast of Florida ahead of Hurricane. Gabriel but then there's other species that seems he's not really care. When Hurricane Irma came through in two thousand seventeen in this hurricane happened to pass thirteen miles away from deer study area hundred one hundred thirty five mile an hour winds twelve inches of rain right and they had sixty dear wearing? GPS collars not only are none of those deer killed. None of those dear change their tune they they acted on that day. The day that made landfall. They acted just like they always act and they win about their business like nothing was going on okay so but for the animals that do you notice that something is about to happen. Apparently do you think that it is about barometric pressure and that pressure dropping and they know that they've got to move. That's the the most people have and it seems like Fisher specially in tune to it You know the Fisher thing called a lateral line they can were they sense pressure and can detect pressure changes changes that could be movement in the water near them but other things as well and some fish seemed to become active and like feed. When there is a high pressure system other Fisher high pressure system might send them off but it seems to be that there'd be barometric pressure that's usually something that we with our instrumentation that we can monitor not that we have a change in barometric pressure of a storm? If it's not that it's something that we don't yet understand about what it could be that they're picking up on and looking at there. There are some wild horse herds in the Outer Banks in North Carolina and people were watching these horses and very worried about what would happen. When Hurricane Doreen came through and people notice it ahead of the storm it seemed that the horses were moving to higher ground and gathering up clusters because one of the things the horses will do so? They'll gather up in groups maybe to stabilize one another and no face of their rumps into the wind and they were seeing this activity on the Outer Banks. Somebody's wild horse herds words ahead of the storm but in one case on Cedar Island. Even even that didn't say these horses because there's a herd of forty nine horses. On Cedar Island Twenty Twenty eight of them were killed by a storm surge from Dorian so even though they seem to detected it was coming and took the right steps. It wasn't enough but there are certain species at one eight winners from storms There had always been Burmese pythons in the everglades may be going back to the seventies but that number jumped tremendously sleep. After some hurricanes destroyed some captive wildlife facilities and freed Burmese pythons. And maybe enough of them to hit a sort of critical mass. An Lao Burmese pythons. The really take hold in the everglades that brings us to another phenomenon that happens. which is that? Sometimes because of storms animals are picked up and moved by waterspouts right like the there could be frogs that that don't usually fly that ended up flying and moving around around in storm. Yeah that does happen. It doesn't happen to the degree to which we sort of as a society would like to dream of it happening and if you've ever seen the movie v Magnolia which ends with this fantastic storm of bullfrogs but there are cases. I mean even in eighteen seventy seven. The New York Times reported on ate alligators about twelve inches long being dumped within two hundred yards near the Savannah River. So I think on one hand you can look in. The storm can come and one can feel empathy and pity in the short term for individual animals. That could be you know. Suffer some kind of catastrophe and die in mass numbers. But it. Also there's this little bit of solace that can be found the idea that these big storms and these events are things that also distribute animals in some way allowing species to move beyond their geographic range and discover new places and evolve into new beautiful things down the road. I guess from a global sort of wildlife perspective it's a bittersweet occurrence when we have massive weather events. Well so let me ask you then. Finally with climate change making these storms more frequent sequent and more severe Is that more bitter or more sweet for some of the animals are going to be affected by them. Well I mean there you're going to do you know a very a large question and global climate change even if it does result in some distribution of species around life is not able able to evolve quickly enough to be commensurate with the destruction that we would see in cases of the Arctic warming. The oceans acidifying acidifying. The oceans warming I personally I can't look to species distribution as being a bright spot in I'm a climate change scenario but you know it's almost taboo to say this but there will be certain species that win from global. Oh climate change that animals that may be are restricted in their northern movements because of severe winters and temperatures change. They'll become big winners In some part of US might someday looking celebrate those winners but it's hard to find anything that like in a holistic sense seems optimistic. Stick great to look forward to for wildlife in terms of scenarios in which we have more and more severe weather and more changes on our planet. well as somebody who spends so much time in the outdoors and focusing on wildlife and we hear about these things I think people think. Oh Wow these. Is these these animals. They're smarter and more interesting than I thought. But do you think that humans have a enough of an appreciation for the other species on this planet. You know on whole as a culture I would say that we're suffering from some dissociation with the natural world You know were increasingly urbanised. I do worry about what that will mean in the future for the conservation movement. If in fact people do move away from the natural world and and become less interested in preserving it I think that that has implications but all in all I find like in my social circles or the people people I spend a Lotta time with. They tend to be infatuated with animals. And that infatuation will oftentimes lead people to think that they're actually smarter than we are. More capable or more adaptive in better evolved to cope but again and again you're reminded of places and times were animals. Just make mistakes steaks and that's an interesting thing to think about with animals is that they can hit a certain age. Certain species like deer twenty years of age but they oftentimes times make a mistake way before that happens in. Don't live that long and I think that it's interesting to start in look at wildlife and that way as things things like individuals who are out there you know attempting to cope with a constantly changing environment and constantly evolving threats. Will I have to say. I've always loved animals but as soon as I got a dog I see all animals in a new way now because I understand just what you're saying that they are individuals that are just just living in this world in the same way that we are. Yes that is Stephen. Ella who is an outdoorsman and host of the Netflix Show Meat Eater Steve. Thank you thank you for having me on I appreciate it and while we are talking animals the Washington Post reports that British and Australian researchers had success in drawing fish back to dine coral reefs by broadcasting the sounds of healthy reefs using an underwater loudspeaker. They saw twice as many fish flock back to the reef. Here's one of the researchers Timothy Gordon. Climate change in warming sees cause more damage to Carl reefs worldwide in the last four years than they have in the whole of recorded history before at the start of my PhD listened to reefs. I compared how they sounded five years ago before that damage to how they sound today and it was the saddest thing I've ever ahead a great animal. Orchestra of the reef has been replaced by the sounds of silence. Gordon and his team say if they can scale up the experiment of broadcasting the sound of healthy thief's they could bring life back to reefs that have been devastated by rising sea temperatures so if the cement industry were a country it would be the third largest carbon dioxide emitter in the world behind only China and the US. You may have heard this statistic nick and it's because the process used to mix cement mixing sand gravel cement binder and water not only gives off. Co Two as a byproduct it requires a tremendous amount of heat that normally comes from fossil fuels. But don't boycott your sidewalk yet because there is some good news. Helium Jen is a solar power. Our company that's developed a new technology that could make industrial manufacturing renewable by using the power of the sun. Bill Gross is CEO and founder of helium. Jenny joins US now and bill. Just take us through this because we know you brought some investors big investors including Bill Gates and the owner of the La Times out to to Lancaster. California we've got something set up there. What did you WANNA show them well? We built a solar concentration field. We're essentially making Govan a huge oven. Who set at two thousand degrees Fahrenheit which is basically one third the temperature of the surface of the sun? And we're making this oven almost like a one acre magnifying glass. It's a field of mirrors. That are all perfectly computer controlled to reflect the sunlight to a single spot. Well we can make these high temperatures news and now use the sun to power these industrial processes like making cement steel making glass. All of these things previously used a huge amount a fossil fuels and it wasn't solvable with renewable energy previously because electricity from solar panels can't provide this kind of heat so we're really excited to try and reduce emissions us and make these industrial processes possible with renewable for the first time so so what these cameras in combination with these panels these mirrors did was create. What you're calling a a death-ray where you can just focus it right on something you might need to hit lake cement mixer magically exactly the the the analogy would be this imagine you went into a football stadium and you were sitting with a mirror at one end and you want to reflect the light to someone at the other end but now imagine all fifty thousand people each have a mirror mirror and they're all reflecting it to one spot? We need a lot of coordination and computer control to get that to happen perfectly. And that's the technology developed computer vision software that could take all all these things and move them very precisely accurately and you said. We went out to Lancaster just a few weeks ago. We've been building this all year long. We fired up and the very first time we achieve these high temperatures these record temperatures. And that's why we're so excited. What about Cement Company? That's not in Sunny Lancaster. California very good question right now. We are going after all the types of factories that have either land adjacent to them at sunny and can integrate with our process that probably is about half of the industrial opportunities. So it's still a trillion dollar opportunity over time. We plan to come up with storage methods and other transportation methods so we can move who've the material maybe to the desert where the sun is great and then moved the results back to where the people needed but for right now. We're focused exactly on what you said places that have the sunny land adjacent and that's still an enormous opportunity. Still more than twenty percent of global emissions happened from that. And we're GONNA target that I well and you know it is amazing. How much much? Co Two comes from cement and how much cement is needed. I mean we just can't right now anyway live without creating cement cement well to to to house the seven and a half billion people on earth and to build the roads buildings transportation everything for them. The two biggest ingredients in our life are cement and steel and both of those release a huge amount of co two because of the burning of fossil fuels to make them and we're enjoying the fruits of of the benefit of those great materials but at a huge cost of the planet one wonders what Joseph Aspden of Leeds England with think. This is the early nineteenth century bricklayer. Glare who came up with this process and now you know cement is just the most desired building material around the world as you said causing this problem You've Said said that the applications for he agend technology will be industrial mixing cement also steal but down the line. This kind of concentrated solar power that you've described could be used to make hydrogen fuel. People are now only dreaming about that. Why would that be such a big deal? That is a huge deal so right now we use hydrogen in almost all Oliver fuel to date all of our gasoline has hydrogen hydrogen is the single best. Fielder is the problem with it. Is it's clean when you burn it but it's dirty when you make it right now. All Oliver hydrogen is made by burning and splitting methane to get hydrogen if we could make completely green hydrogen that would be revolutionary. Well how could you make completely green hydrogen Asia. Will you could split water if you could split water. Water is a molecule of two hydrogens in an oxygen but those are bound together very tightly. It takes a huge huge amount of energy to split them will. How would you split them? What you can burn fossil fuel split them but then I would defeat the purpose but if you could split water with the sun that is the holy grail? Well well it takes fourteen hundred and fifty degrees centigrade to split water and we have already achieved than that temperature. So Argo long-term is to use solar energy energy to split the water molecule make fully green hydrogen and that could really have an impact on reducing fossil fuel use and of course reducing. Co Two emissions. Milk that's bill gross founder and CEO of Helium Jen the Solar Power Company.

The 2020 Who, Me? Awards!

"They wanted know ping ping bill and welcome to the twenty twenty who. We're live from the same place. We always record our podcasts. Our respective bedrooms. that's exciting. It's great to be here. It's great to be here in my own bedroom as usual but you know this year as opposed to doing it because we're lazy we're doing it because we're responsible and this year the celebrities who couldn't come had a reason to say now right they didn't just say no like they normally do a had a reason and honestly we didn't even ask so. I think what better way to get into the whom since. Just get into the whom he's right. We don't eat opening banter. We didn't talk about the huge stuff. That's happening today like lori. Lock let getting out of prison. We can talk about that on friday lorenzi clara baldwin thread. We'll get there on friday. We'll get there. We'll get there on friday today. We're focusing on the who means though we've been hosting virtual awards shows no celebrities want to come to for years now. Everyone else is trying it for the first time. So let's look back at some of the most memorable hosting moments from other socially distanced award shows from twenty twenty. Wow it's been quite the year of innovation. I would argue and desperation. I would also argue. But sometimes they would put those zoom clapper's on like walls fake walls of zoom clapper's it all began with amanda seals who hosted the bt awards. Back in june when no one knew how or even if virtual audience free award shows seals not proved it was possible. She managed to combine the sort of lame jokes. You expect from log. With urgent commentary about racism and the george floyd protests and we have the protests. Now we've been out here in east martin. This new eruption of consciousness has been beautiful leukemia. Some the only out. That's because the club is close by august. When the vm as aired a virtual audiences had been somewhat figured out and kiki palmer delivered her jokes as screens filled with people watched from behind her. I can't believe mtv to host. I don't know if i was a first choice. The only one brave enough to do a during cova either way. I got the job love. If you don't think there's truth behind that joke you're crazy because there definitely is. Nobody wanted that job but not everyone was as comfortable as kiki at the billboard. Music awards kelly clarkson found it a little tough to say the least to perform without audience reactions. Because right it's reacting react tonight. Music from every genre will bring us together again. Thanks to the billboard charts. There's an audience just as me my own hype girl very weird and by the time demi levato hosted the people's choice awards wine and we let her do that. We don't practically forgotten what award shows used to look like it. Felt like we'd been experiencing this type of award show for ever. This is a long clip. But like you need this is we just let this joke. Happen in two thousand nine hundred ninety have been five seconds long but in two thousand twenty it was. This are shetler. Like billy crystal say excited to be here tonight because honestly this year has been the longest three years of my life. Don't get me wrong. It started out amazing. I performed at the grammys and son the national anthem at the super bowl. But then kovin hit and everything shut down so i did what everyone else did. I went into lockdown mode and got engaged. I got into painting photography. Meditation tested the limits of postmates unlimited. Also didn't know this could happen. But i reached the end of instagram four times. I've been seven seasons. Pretty little liars got engaged and then i went looking for aliens and desert so basically the same as everyone else got a producer in the background. Just has their head in their hands. Watching horrible fees. not read that before. She said it just sounds like she's renting it for the first time this year's emmy awards went even further by making the lack of an audience part of the gag hosted by jimmy kimmel the the show used audio reactions and clips from old emmy shows to fill in the blanks of kimmel's self deprecating hosting gig. I mean it sounds more interesting than it is. Here's a clip. You know what they say. You can't have a virus without a host. The big question. That i guess we should answer is why would you have an award show in the middle of a pandemic seriously. I'm asking. Why are we having an award show in the middle of a pandemic and yet here you are here. You are just acting above it and you really wanted to cash the check. Yeah you're right. Jennifer aniston thing with the fire was funny stuff. A sustainable was funny. It was funny but not all fake laugh. tracks are created equal. Here's a clip. From the mtv tv awards also like renamed goat or something hosted by none other than Vanessa hudgens it's the mtv movie and tv awards. I ever celebration of the best moments of stars of all time to recognize our. I go to the night please. Welcome derrick cuff. Nice porch to how terrible that was that audience what she was doing the dote what the goat i mean. Know what that means but like okay. Fine whatever as time went on award shows began playing with the idea of small. Socially distanced audiences. Here's a clip of ghosts. Reba mcentire and darius rucker doing their best with terrible writing in front of tables sparsely populated with celebrities. Like cam and someone named rex. Reba kept talking about rex and it would cut to rex and i was like her boyfriend. Was it at her boyfriend. It was her boyfriend rex. Linn you're right. Wow here's the clip. To the war. It is really great to be here. Y'all hey in two thousand and twenty. It's great to be anywhere. You know rebuild. This is my first time hosting the cma awards. You've been to this rodeo many times. How does it feel strange being six feet away from areas. Now listen. I hosted with dolly parton last year. Oh the two big reasons to socially distance but a joke about dolly parton boobs being six feet long. I was like what and you could see cam in the background being like one being award show without a joke about dolly parton boobs connick and one upping the as if it was even possible. The mt awards which also exist who knew added a third owes to the mix. That's three hosts to deal with the awkwardness. We didn't need one. We needed three. So here's sarah hyland. Cain brown loss in my backyard. And ashley mcbride. Who i've never heard of it. It's a clip. That'll make you say bless their hearts we're bringing the hardest and their salsa life at incredible locations all around middle tennessee. We've got little big town coming to you from inside a cave. trust me. it's amazing. And brian's gonna shaka's hips on plus kelsey ballerini and halsey are gonna rock moves. That would probably get them thrown out of a bar. I want to be thrown out of a bar with halsey. Be my first time but you can count me in. I just love sounds better than it is no. I love to see them perform in a cave. That sounds fantastic. That clip really is the one that really did me in. But despite all the complications of virtual awards shows manage to contain their fair share of memorable moments there was gaga trip to chromatic during the as megan thee stallion going full. Mad max in the desert during the et awards. And then should i. it's wayne performing alongside countless mannequins during the deal so funny that she performed like a what thirty year old song with mannequins. No time no no relevance we loved it but you forget about the mtv as which were hosted by three fourths of little mix no. I didn't lindsay. They were boring. I tried to find a funny clip to pull. It didn't work. I did however pull a clip from the best part of that show which was the doja cat performance. No it was when bb resumed in two or to lady gaga. who wasn't there. Neither was bb. Both know what does not to be there. I mean nobody would thing nobody was there. I think even the three little mixes the three little mixes when they come in they sort of get the. What is it the. Beam me up scotty dissolve. It's like oh yeah. And i'm not sure if they were all individually filmed on different sets and then compiled or if they were together. Because they never interact. I sort of assumed that they were shooting on different place. Each little mix but there was one little mix missing which was kind of the focus of it even though you could tell. They didn't plan for that. Because they had animated the intro in full with all four little mixes okay. My will say there were plenty of cultural events where it it may be helped to have people able to zoom in but i will say that award shows were not one of them. They did not have really did not help us in any way to enhance our award show experiences but enough about other award shows. Let's get onto the who means because we have a lot of awards to give out today a lot of them. Let's begin with best relationship. I'll read the nominees and then revealed a winner for best relationship. and these. Are courtney stodden and brian austin green katie. Holmes and emilio vitolo junior banana florence.

Hey, welcome in welcome in glad to have you on this edition of other side at Texas broadcasting from the racer car wash studios in my say. I'm playing through the pain playing hurt. Don't know what's going on Byerly. But I'm rolling along here in the race car wash studios. Racer car wash voted love expense wash for five years running. Stop into one of five convenient locations across hub city for the best wash around guaranteed racer wash dot com to find your best location. They're big show. Head w today Tech's Tribune's Ross Ramsey up. Here is we broadcast live twelve minutes from now. And then Thomas Mooney of news slaying it we're going to have some new candidates for bumper music on the program excited. Have Tom Mooney out to tell us about the latest in Texas music. Also have Daniel the digital guru in studio. Daniel how you to ingrates beautiful, Dane. West Texas, lovely weather. He got to talk a little bit louder. Okay. It's great outside. It's really cool. Good weather. Got my slides on. I'm feeling good. What slides slides are like. Slippers? Oh, okay. Yeah. I'm not wearing shoes. Daniel the millennial. Guru. I am I'm an older millennial. Okay. So a more refined millennial my taste has been refined over the years for share. Okay. Daniel in studio with us. It's mom sees real. I told you that he's a real dangling studio with us. This is where I'm going to start today for we give Ross Ramsey getting to bring you the latest on had somebody called me and said, you know, what they told me was if you really want to know what's going on. You gotta listen to other sides of Texas. I appreciate those compliments what's going on in state government right now, we're going to get into with Ross Ramsey state government matters more than anything else, and it Beck's your day to day life more than anything else. Does we stay on top of that here? But one thing that is really just. I've heard I've heard this a lot last week when the rob was in Austin. Kill Seliger state Senator in Amarillo. He's a free agent. That's the term that I continue to be heard about Kelso GRA now. Listen, here's the deal. Kill Seliger is worth. I believe I believe he's worth a couple hundred million dollars. And if you're worth a couple hundred million dollars, a hope that your free agent Daniel if you are worth a couple of hundred million dollars, would you be a free agent. Yeah. I'd probably have a burrito shop, and you know, maybe own a liquor store too. And then free agent. Yeah. And then I'd probably have something to do. Maybe not the sod poodles. But like the the great Amarillo, actually, I bring the army dillas back. I remember seeing that now's your force. Yeah. The Armadillo was back. We'd have to teams name rela knowing Armagh dillas and then Saad poodles. So this is my argument is that guys who have represented this region from the cap rock to the panhandle have always been they've always been free agents. Now just hear me out George Mayon. Let me tell you a couple of stories about George Mason, George may Han was US congressman in this area from nineteen thirty five until nineteen Seventy-nine. He's Jody airing tin's original predecessor. When it came time for then president Lyndon Baines Johnson to get emergency funding for the Vietnam war. He had to go through the appropriations chair who was the appropriations chair, George Mahone. George Han voted with his party sixty percent of the time in his last two sessions. Now, you could say that's because Texas was turning your say what it is. But it's always been free agency. That's my point. What did he do with his free agency? He put together a little deal. The president called him said, hey, we need money for this war in Vietnam. And George Mahan respondents said we'll uneasy some money for my farmers in producers to get some agd products to export to which the president respond. Are you telling me it's gonna take an interstate out of Lubbock for me to get my Vietnam money to which George may hunt said yes, that's what it's going to require president. And I'll spare you his. Libbed nece. But might Ajab mother drop the GD and said, I'll call you back in thirty minutes. Thirty minutes later. I twenty seven LBJ calls back and says you've got your interstate. Now, give me my money. That's how I twenty seven one of the shortest interstates in America came to pass. Now when about the other ten miles that just went to the north side Lubbock, what about the ten miles. That stretches across Lubbock George may Hawn worked with that. Terrible. Awful democrat tip O'Neill leader the house during the Reagan administration tip O'Neill made a deal with George Mahan raven on as he was George Mayon. That he would support the underground railroad system. An underground railroad. Excuse me underground subway system. I almost went Harriet Tubman. Yeah. That was really confusing for a second. But also really exciting how 'cause it was a long time ago, you know, different era now. Okay. That he would support the underground subway system im- Boston. If he got ten more miles of interstate across Lubbock, which would be the extension of I twenty seven from the north loop. All the way across Lubbock is it dwindles down into eighty seven. Now, there's an excellent documented the about the subway in Boston. But how is just a giant open pit for a really long time. But do they talk about George may haunt in that I don't know this service to the American people, and they didn't make the Lubbock connection. So it took Lubbock to make it happen. Really? That's what west Texas cans do. And that's my point is that George may haunt. For all those years emblematic of most lawmakers in this region, a free agent Delwen Jones, I could make the case for Delwan Jones at nauseam could also go into and I will go into. A cotton farmer in hill center. His name was Pete Laney. Who was a free agent in worked with a word to cross the aisle. It's almost like plink go in reverse plink. Oh from prizes, right. Like Linko in reverse works its way across the aisles. And then. In then makes a good policy point in. That's what Pete Laney did over and over again in that tally was elected speaker of the house, and that's always bellowing crown this program is who will be the free agent because if you're straight line partisan, you're going to be a west Texas can't Nana west Texas, can and that's the cry that we need in. It's not just a guy get down on you. Daniel is like the digital millennial. Guru. That's true. But. You in your cohorts are the future. That's true. Like where does millennial Goto like you gotta be born in what year, I think from like. Maybe eighty five two. Nineteen ninety nine. Okay. So I'm seventy nine. Okay. So I've got a listening base that I think in you'd have to look at the demos for me. But majority of who listens to us on the program because you go through all these numbers, right? Is about my younger. Yeah. No generation y. The wires here. But it takes a west Texas can to get things done in. Those people have always been free agents, quote unquote, free agents in I could go through a dozen other names, they probably wouldn't recognize now, I don't know. What's gonna happen? We're gonna talk to Ross Ramsey coming up. What's going to happen? Kill cylinder in where he's going to. He's been the chair of higher education in the Senate fairly powerful seat going to see where he lands in the next few days is the Senate announces their appointments, but you gotta be smart. You gotta be shrewd to sit at that table. And you gotta be a west Texas can in those are all labels it what us above free agents. And that's where I want to start this edition of the program going to get in with Ross Ramsey coming up right here after this quick break. Stick right with this on other side of Texas. Some. All the stars up in this. Yeah. So. Jags. Go out to the phone lines. We have our friend the one and only Ross Ramsey Texas Tribune Ross Ramsey. How are you buddy? There. You are Ross. Sorry, great. I'm doing great. What's going on? What we were one button away from hitting on cue that close. Yeah. That that close you went to the inauguration. What were your takeaways? Well, I noticed that the first thing I noticed when I was out. There was that. There was a head in the middle of the median, and so the people in the UT band couldn't see the people in the Aggie band and vice versa. So we can't we kept him from fighting riot protection. Where was it? Take man. I don't know. I guess they were in Lubbock, or, you know, I don't know. I don't know eating hamburgers at the White House. I think they were not eating hamburgers. They were there. I know that I saw picture evidence can add to the president in the chancellor after the show where were the band's how many how many would you say we're in the UT and ADM bans know, they were they actually had small bands up there. There were probably fifty piece small for civil for university bans. I mean, all all three of those bands can put a mob on the field. But you know, they were small concert bands. So when we fifty people up in Lubbock, that's what we're entering with here is why can't we bring fifty from Lubbock? You know, let me know how it goes gay. Just it was it was interesting. They did they did a couple of things differently. They did it on the north side of the capitol, which is. Unusual. It's usually on the, you know, usually when you see things at the Texas capitol there on the south steps of the capitol facing down congress avenue. This was on the north side facing university of Texas. And the argument was that the sight lines are better because there aren't trees on that walk. So for whatever reason they put it out there. Issue. Why on this side of the building? No, it was just you know it. It's like anything else. If you do something for, you know, a, you know, decades, and then change it everybody goes, wait. Wait, wait. What are you doing? No wasn't a big deal at all. It was actually a very nice setup. And they had a good little deal and. Abbott and Patrick got sworn in and spoke, and then everybody kinda went home the house came in today. The Senate came in today for the sole purpose really passing resolutions that said they won't be back until Tuesday of next week, and you know, the legislative sessions in Texas start the same way roller coasters start you kind of go real slow, and you go up this really slow hill and nothing happens for a few minutes. And then it goes crazy, and we're in we're in the hill, climbing part. The people asking questions Ross about like, we especially in the midst of a government shutdown in people tend not to disconnect the two, but you've got lawmakers in Texas who've been dismissed today through Tuesday, I believe on the house and Senate side and asking why are these people still getting paid when there are federal employees are not still getting paid apples to oranges. But the question still resonates. They're getting paid six hundred dollars a month. They get a nother peace. They get what's called a per diem daily rate when they're in town. So you know, one way to do this would be to say they get the six hundred dollars whether they're in session or not and they don't get the other money unless they're in Austin. And if there's no reason to have them in Austin. You just let them go home. And you don't pay them. They'll so let's talk Texas legislature. When the one at one of the first moves that we see is that the house and the Senate the only thing they have to get done in a legislature is pass a budget. We see the houses initial proposed budget. I don't know how many other adjectives I can use to say, this isn't the budget. But it's the initial proposed budget. Has a certain amount of money for public education. Some say seven some say nine billion for public education the Senate coming in at three point five. What do you make about that discrepancy? Well, first of all, what do based budgets matter? And Secondly, whether the discrepancies in the based budgets, Matt Ross, it's a, you know, think of a budget, you know, works like all the other legislation, but it's a complex when it's about a thousand pages long and think of this as a one hundred and forty day negotiation, and the first thing you do in negotiation to say, here's my proposal. And the other side says here's my proposal. And then you sit down, and you start knocking out the differences, and you start, you know, the first thing you do is you lay in in the legislature is you lay out your proposal for the people on your own team. So if you're in the house, you lay out of house budget, so that the people in the house can. Fiddle with it and change this. And I don't like that. And let's put this over there. And they do their version of it the senate's doing the same thing somewhere. You it usually happens in late March or early April they finish their versions of the budget and each sends their version to the other house, and then they start negotiating between the houses. And and you know, the house will eventually vote out a budget Senate will vote out a budget. They'll go to a conference committee, which is five people from the house and five people from the Senate, they'll really hammer it out and at the end of it. We always get a budget. It takes a while. But you basically say here's our first opening bid. Here's their first opening bid. And that's where we are today. Okay. So when about this incongruent now, we're gonna get into how the big three or singing Coon by ya right now. But right, there's a lot of difference. Between what the house is laid out in. And this is how I'm going to put it in criminal if I'm wrong, my political counselor. Ross Ramsey it seems like the house wants to bolster the public institution that is public education and the Senate simply wants to bolster the employee's of that institution is a wrong way of looking at it because they're a long ways off billions of dollars off. Well, yeah, I mean, the only real difference. There's two big differences one of them is they're using a different number. And that's really just you know, how much does the Senate want to spend that much the house wanna spend. And that's the beginning of number negotiation. The second one is how do you want to spend the money in the house has been relatively less specific and the Senate has been pretty specific about at least a part of this. And the Senate has said let's spend three point seven billion of the money that we're going to give to public education on five. Thousand dollar raises for each teacher. Now, if you were in the in the house budget, and you just said, let's spend a bunch of money on schools a bunch of that money is going to turn out to be part. It turned out to be teacher pay the Senate just being specific about it. Right. You don't spend money. You don't send money to the students. They don't get checks. So you know, you were going to spend it on something. And it may well be that the house's version gets spent on teachers just as well. So, you know, the governor is talking about something else that, you know, both the house and the Senate are open to which is rewarding schools financially that perform better where the students do better. And you know, you know, maybe giving them a little bit more money for this or that. And you know, there are going to be a couple of questions, you know, the broad questions or how much more money are you going to spend on schools? What are you? You going to do in terms of changing the way we distribute the money we spent on schools, here's a dollar. How do we spend it or here's two dollars? How do we spend it? You know, that's the school finance part. Are you gonna spend enough state money on schools to lower pressure on local school property tax rates, and maybe even up the share of the cost of public education that local tax payers and state tax payers pay. And all of those questions are interlinked and both the house and the Senate proposal, and what the governor has said, you know, less specifically are are elements of those three questions Rossellini thinks a bigger issue for people right now. No, I'm gonna ask you to take on your own poll analysis here. What's a bigger question standardized tests or property taxes property tax? Okay. What people pay it, the, you know, if you do standardized testing and talk about it, the people that are impacted about that one way or the other are really emphatic about it. But you know, they tend to be they're not all, but they tend to be parents and educators, and parents and educators school parents have school. Children and educators are outnumbered by property tax payers. Ross Ramsey at Ross Ramsey on Twitter as we carry along here. I want to ask you this for people, especially people who are listening live and listened the podcasts Ross there's a discrepancy of seventeen point three million dollars in the house versus four point one million dollars in the Senate for the vet school in the base budgets again. We're back to base budgets, but that's a pretty wide diversion between those two on that particular issue. Now, we just got done talking about public education were billions of dollars apart. But on the vet school were millions of dollars apart some thirteen point whatever million dollars apart. How does it play out? What what going to be part of it's going to be. I mean, it's going to be negotiation and sometimes those small differences oftentimes, those small differences are harder to reconcile than the big. Differences. I'm talking about a big difference. Like three billion dollars in schools that spread out over so many districts. It's a little bit hard to say, well, the house wins this we have to fire that guy. And if the Senate wins it we get to keep him. You know, it's not that specific when you start talking about particular programs like a vet school in a particular location at a particular time when you feel with the dollars in that that's a direct budget. That's a straight up, you know, you're arguing over in this case, whether or not tech is going to have a vet school, and, you know, whether they're in the budget or not, you know, there's partly the you're in the budget, partly and you get to spend the money and you're authorized, and as, you know, as well as anybody the weather tech gets to have a vet school still very much in the air. Okay. I'll take that. So tell us Ross Ramsey wouldn't make about the Koumba yon between the big three the gov- Lieutenant governor and the speaker of the house sound like something a reporter would say by John. Yeah. You know, we like it when they fight. Right. You know, it's interesting. They are making you know, really pleasant noises about each other. I think we're all on the same page. I think we're all talking about the same thing. We all want the same stuff. And you know that has happened before it's been a while. I mean, they've been kind of test the up here for a while. And you know, it's interesting to see the top three in Texas, whoever they are starting off. Nice. It's been awhile since they did that the question in a legislative session. Again, it almost doesn't matter who the players are is will they be able to hold this. Is it going to be is it gonna survive everything from the fights over things like the that school to the fight over the debate over the negotiation over whatever you wanna call it over public school, finance and property taxes. Is it going to survive? If you know, the governor wants a particular thing that the Lieutenant governor, and or the speaker don't want. There are a bunch of ways to slice this one way to think about the Texas capitol is that you know, that building was built for fighting. It's you know, we don't have wars anymore. We have debates. I mean, you know, you have these votes and everything and things can get pretty heated over there. And even if you're in a good mood, and even if you're working with friends, you can get sideways. So right now, they're, you know, everything looks like a hallmark card or an after school movie or something, and it may remain that way it would be unusual. If it did. So that right now, they're all saying nice things about each other about each other's ideas. So I never ask you to be the predictor at least not explicitly. But if things that every week, you don't give me the over under on where things would fall apart. What date would you say this is where things fall apart between the big three? You know, I don't know that I would predict that they will. It may be that they get all the way to the end the session gets more and more difficult as it goes on to Ross maybe not somewhere in there. You you run against deadlines and you start running out of time and you start getting down to brass tacks. And people getting exactly what they want and people settling for something else. And that's when tensions get high. And that's when tempers rise, and these guys may be so focused on school finance property taxes teacher pay raises, you know, school safety that they avoid all of that. And only the only thing I'll predict about it is that that usually that kind of togetherness usually doesn't completely hold. Okay. One last little question for you. Let me peek pick your brain a little bit. I've gotten quite called just texted. Then it's been the question on lot of people's minds here in Lubbock in the surrounding area. Has Avium ever offered up of flag football game and bust lawmakers to cow field to play this game free beer this way in that. Yep. Okay. It's happened before was the last summit happened. The had a guy I, you know, this is a pretty regular affair. They had a guy in the Texas house. It was a former pro football player. Name Scott Turner from plano or from Prisco. He was from Collin county. And I remember I believe it was two sessions ago. Everybody came back from that game at Texas AM, and you know, you basically have. A bunch of normal humans out there with the actual athlete. And apparently, he ran them pretty hard. So yeah, that's been going on for a while. Okay. So it is par for the courts roster. Of course aunt Ross Ramsey on Twitter every Monday Wednesday, Friday on Texas Tribune dot org. Ross any other things we need to know about out here. Now, I think, you know, the this this slow start is nothing unusual for the legislature. They've got the budget's out. You know, there are going to be plenty of people, you know, during a quiet weekend. It's a long weekend here with the Martin Luther King holiday and everything and the slow start because the house hasn't named committees. Yet the Senate I'm told is on the verge of naming committees. But it's a regular slow start. But there are plenty of people up here who are digging into those house and Senate budget proposals and taking them apart. And that's really where the that's really where the work of the session is in that budget. It's the main policy document of the whole state government. What do you think you think kill Seliger holds onto higher education? I don't know. I'm fascinated by this. You know, the Senate has seller in in general, you're you're fascinating about Seliger. I'm fast. You know? I've I've known Seliger for a long time. He's a, you know, fascinating guy. I'm, but I'm fascinated by the situation and the politics of the Senate, Dan, Patrick doesn't have the margin and the solid and the the bigger Republican majority. He had a session ago. He's got a one vote majority, and it wouldn't pay. To make any of those Republican votes angry. So it's gonna be very interesting to watch. How waltzes through Republican committee Senate, right? Yeah. Right. I felt it's just gonna how does he how does he wall through this? And I I think that's going to be you know, that and the one open committee chair he's got which is health and human services after Charles Schwarzenegger's, you know, who's been involved in a sexting scandal said he didn't want to hold onto his chairmanship. So there's one open chairmanship, there's this new political situation. And there are a bunch of, you know, political nerds like you. And I out here waiting to see what Dan Patrick's gonna make of the Senate when he does his committee. He is Ross Ramsey. Ross Ramsey on Twitter chicken there. Like, I do it. Bring Monday, Wednesday and Friday, text few were always pleasure Ross. Thank you, buddy. It's always fine. We'll talk to you next week. All right partner again to get into a quick break in get in with our Thomas mood. Maybe a little annual the digital winning. A little bit for. Stick right with us on the other side. Today. And now we have with us in studio Thomas or Tom either way. Okay, I'm gonna call you Thomas out of deference. Thomas Mooney at underscore news, sling there on Twitter, we're gonna talk about some Texas country music. Glad to have you with us here, buddy. Thank you. Yeah. It's been a minute since I was over here. Yeah. Yeah. I can't remember when it was about four or five months ago. People always give me compliments on their bumper music in always defer back to well till Thomas Mooney that you appreciate the bumper music here on the show how things been going. You're always fun when you travel what not really I mean disrupted here in west, Texas. I'm from fort Stockton. So I go back every once in a while go down to the big bend area. But that's mainly up here. Yeah. This about you follow a while the Texas musicians. Yeah. Yeah. Of course, I just do a lot of writing about music. That's coming out of the state Americana stuff some stuff out of Nashville, but always country. Yeah. Yeah. Like, Americana stuff. I mean roots music, just whatever, you're you're. I guess whatever. People think of of country, I know like. A lot of people think nationals who were will. But there's some stuff. That's good. That's coming out of there. So yeah. Just the Brian about. Music from the area and Texas till everybody where you do that from. Well, I have my own website called new slang glove ACC, which is kind of closer to just some stuff that I knew until have people can get to it Thomas. I mean, it's new slang Lubbock dot com. Okay. I've been writing some stuff over at Rolling Stone country dot com to some other places like that. I mean, you can find me find anything that I ride at on Twitter at underscore new slang. So we've got some music that we want you to take us through this stuff that you sent me and said, hey, you need to be listening to this. So I just want people to be prepared for the kind of. I don't want to say that you're the two old men in the Muppets who critiques who word in in every line. But you know, a lot about music and. Go it. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I hope I'm not the tool been in the Muppets evil even the historian whether they wore moulder must look it up. Yeah. I hope I'm not that way either. But maybe like in thirty years, I can be that. Yeah. Angry old man that angry. Oh, man. So Thomas some stuff that we win again are into with you on is flatly and cavalry. Yeah. Flatland there originally from they started up here in Lubbock clutter, the lead singer, he he's from down in Midland. I think they've all kind of graduated from from tech now. So they're kind of locally or I guess centrally located in Fort Worth now just to make it easier on on touring. They have a new record out coming out this Friday called homeland, insecurity. Yeah. They're just kind of one of the the big buzz bands of the scene if you will. So we're going to go to their lead track on their new album, and it is come back down. Yeah. And i'm. Gonna play these in on what you to take listeners through what their ears ought to be perking up to as it distinguishes particular styles with particular artist's death. Sure. Us. Taste of what it is. Around you. This. Can get his. No. Brought you. Flatland the really kind of this is our second record right now you see their their pallet or sonic palette kind of building a little bit more expanding. I've always kind of compared them to a blend of Josh Abbott and a Aban that you play just a minute ago turnpike. They of have that sound it's especially fiddle and close Hong riding his very Evan Felker of turnpike. It's very similar, but they also have I think what they always kind of build themselves as easy on the years, heavy on the heart. So it's kind of that light pop land. I guess that you can see from Josh. So again this record out Friday. So it's my why was. Easy on the is heavy on the heart. Yeah. Yeah. That's. I like these guys already. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I one too. Yeah. He's a he's done. I guess like they have to records and an EP and Scott various a local. Park stadium. Local record studio they've stayed local. That's one of those things. That's really interesting is that flatland is really a band. That's really blown up and yet they stayed local in a lot of their production. And like, I guess the the the business operations of the ban. You know, they've they've stayed Gokul and stated in a comfortable area. I guess okay. Cavalry making its play to new bumper music Daniel on the program. Yes, sir. I'll get that down. Okay. Plattling cavalry. We have our print. Thomas Mooney at underscore news slaying on Twitter in pseudo with us next one Charlie shafter, Charlie chapter. He's like a old Lubbock guy originally from Illinois. And yeah, this new record of his it comes out Friday as well. He's live. Over in round the DFW area. And this new record. I can't it's I'm blanking on who co-produce it. But I know one of the co producers was Josh Abbott, actually 'cause they're okay buddies. Yeah. Believe the song is over to you was lever wild. I liked Billy creek better. But it's okay. You wanna play Billy creek at school to let's play Billy cre-. Yeah. I thought that was you know, you run the afternoon radio program. Will people be jazzed about what's going on? I think that this had a good beat to it. Even though it's hot. I mean, this is kind of. Influenced by all the corruption. Arkansas acting as the eighties. Listen to this other. Kind of a little. Stamp here. Did write this Tom Cruise? Overtake. She'll off your. Made you sail. Sandra something care about. I was getting shape. To around here. Wants from West Virginia ones. Annoyed once little more. Guest Charlie style. Chris. Charts? Obviously, I'll weenie turns his name to snarly style. So I mean, if that is not a description for for that, Charlie. Pull three song. So. Charlie schefter. Things that pique your interest on him. Well, you know on this new record. And he's always kind of been this way. He's the way he describes things that are when I guess you losing were mind. Yeah. That's a new record titled. That's a mouthful of words. He's he's just always has an interesting perspective on header describe something that can just be casual or typical that everyone goes through. But he's coming at it at a different way, a lot of abstract kind of descriptions and stuff like that. That. I mean, I think it's one of those things where when you're remembering something sometimes you attach something that is just kind of an off description of the one on thinking right now is just the new season retrea detective he keeps on mentioned. It was Steve McQueen died that day, and it just something that attached to memory. And in a lot of ways Charlie's always attaching that just something that happened that that you just can't shake to member, you know, even though it may not be the most important thing. Charlie. So you were with him you've been with him. Yeah. Charlie. Like he said he lived here in love it for awhile. He's he's considered one of those Lubbock songwriters. Lou light, the blue light all that kind of. Okay. We have Thomas Mooney at underscore news sling. You take out his podcast. Yeah. The new slang podcast of I have not had a new episode in a minute. But now, I mean, I've had you been doing that. Oh, I don't know maybe eighteen months or so really. Yeah. There's a lot of people podcast and right now, it's a I'll have to check yours out, man. Yeah. Definitely do. So it's just like, you know, about one hour interviews with different artists coming through town. So I know 'cause I've tried to have you on the show before. And you're like, oh, I've got so in so studio like, well, that's a lot bigger name than me. Let's do one more. And then let's take a breaking back in this is coal country by Charles Wesley. Good one listeners queued up on this in then break down. That's nice. Yeah. He I really like this guy right years. He's from West Virginia tell that Appalachian Darcus as far as the the richness does a lot more stuff going on. Musically. Sonically the kind of. Reverence town sound dreams and welcomes fading VAR behind. Cool country. Entry west. I'm vos. Zone. Two. Didn't then now from federal. Lynn snoops newer zone. The album is Sinica Buddha. Spent low in the background which talk about he's got that either one or two things right there with a name like that. You're either a serial killer songwriter, the three three name Bill. Yeah. Again, like he's from West Virginia. I feel like he especially on this new record. This one comes out February fifteenth believe. You just you have that richness of like, the the West Virginia Appalachian salad. Of course. There's a difference in the fiddles between if you notice on this in the flatland stuff. The flat line stuff has more of that upbeat kind of kind of a way like closer to the western swing version of what you'd use your fiddle versus this, which is just a little bit more of that bluegrass Kenna sound Ultime. Yeah. This record like I said fifteenth, there's a lot more upbeat stuff on here. But he he does go into a lot more just storytelling about West Virginia. You know, the, I guess the some more social commentary in action. Yeah. That part of the world in this for the. Yeah. Yeah. Definitely. So I did my ancestry DNA in. That's like where my ancestors came from was from Appalachia down into Missouri in the end, Texas. Well. I've slept since then. But Troy stout. He he's from West Virginia who were talking about a minute ago. He's I came here. What book is read and whatnot? But they I guess like. I'm gonna mess this up, but essentially like West Virginia and west Texas are about as close as you can be as far as what the the people were like. Obviously once flatten ones Rocky Mountain, we're not necessarily rocky. But you know, I think that, you know, everybody everybody here did and ancestry. Dana whether or not they'll be enrolled in government records, I do not know give disclaimer. But I would find a lot of. A lot of our wristy in a lot of. A lot of the same DNA from Appalachian on here. Hey, let's kick a quick break here and get back in three more songs rake in with our friend. Thomas Mooney at new slaying. Checkout is podcast will be right back here on the other side of Texas. Have with us in studio. Thomas Mooney running through half a dozen songs here song number four, Jamie, Lynn Wilson. And this is death and life. This is like seriously probably top three song of my for you right now as far as like top three favorite song of last year because this was released last year. Yeah. So really really great record. Let's check it out. And then you break it down for. Crawl? Purse down by. She takes a look around wonders Cain be the bullet stare beside or spitting of. Of all the way this has it is too. She. It's been threes. She stilling stone. Be love but still feel. That's. In the. So chill muscle of about J. Liberals, jamie. She you may be familiar with the the band Tristesse. It's kind of like a super group of four female songwriters. She shoes in that band for a long time. They're technically not disbanded anything you don't play. But a couple of shows a year, they all kind of. Been more concentrated on their their solo stuff. This new record for jumping over rocks. It was released back in the fall. I believe Charlie Sexton is the one who produced a record who was a guitar. I still think he is guitar player for Bob Dylan, and he's gotten really into producing a whole lot of records. Now. Like he's producing the new Ryan Bingham record. That's coming out and February. But yeah, Jamie. She's a songwriter. She lives at. Whereas it better pronouncing this Danis to Hannah's Texas little small town outside to in San Antonio. Unlike you've Oudi anyways. Yes, she. This record right here. There's a song called Oklahoma stars as well that she co wrote with Evan filtered when the lot in turnpike. Yeah. Her version is really really great to you may throw that on for some bumper music. Yeah. Some point now, I just really love the way, Jamie. Write songs. She's a very kind of guy. Clark econo-, Phil. Nice. So good bowl there. Yeah. Great voice, really strong voice in. Yeah. Yeah. To your point. But. Try and make it last. We were store. Despite. Grabs can expect. And we saw. Probably mid thirties. She know that you're right for always. Arose. Don't you know, she's like a married woman of like four kids? I wasn't insane. Weighing anything, actually, you know, her husband. Here's a great little cameo for for you is in the music video for turnpike, troubadours Jin smokin lies. That's her husband who's like kind of the brooding cousin in that music. So. Next up canyon. Joshua Ray Walker by some of that. And we'll get into some critique with the Rolling Stones. Thomas mooney. Now, just going to say, yeah, he writes pretty. School for me because we wrote that south wing. We were on the newspaper. Stuck with the I was never made it. I've talked with Charlie going back teaching one of those classes as a guest speakers of time. Love that. Being. Not just in stature n- terms space. I'm about this. Drop. Spill a nice line. Is a big. Candy. This is first record. Josh Ray Walker. From around the Fort Worth area and. Yeah. He I don't know if there's like a an artist to acted see blowing up and getting some really big national recognition. I think it'd be it would be Walker over here. He could have like a I don't want to necessarily say like a Chris Stapleton type of is or anything. But you know, he could definitely be. An artist that you. May not be able to see in a year's time. Six months time without having some. Having to go to a bigger market. I guess this is a new record of his called wish you were here, which is out at the end of the month. January twenty fifth. I don't know. I just really liked the five of this record. And just as as you're up and comer. Yeah. I could definitely I know. There's like you can't really put odds on these like on what what the next unquote is. But I mean, I would I'd say he's he's got some potential really rise. So another female artists. Ashley McBride girl going nowhere. Yeah. This this record came out last year. And she's she's been around for a while. She's a up in Nashville. I can't I think she's originally from Arkansas. And I know she did a co ride with Garth Brooks recently. That's what's to be on his new record. Or maybe he covered a song. Simple like that. But yeah, I don't know. I just she's got like a a really what I'd kinda describe is just kind of like that heartland kind of. Rock sound an Esa people probably don't like him. But Eric church kinda has a little bit of the same vibe, some people. I mean, I know I think like churches there's nothing wrong with him. But okay, so girl go in nowhere, Ashley bride in also. When I whenever I checked out. What you sent me? I really liked a little bar and the linga. Yeah. I mean, that's a great song is in Georgia. Yeah. Is I googled it and looked it up. But here is girl going nowhere. Actually mcbride. Don't waste you. Guitar. Do you get? The. You can tell. Come on that roll your own. Spain. Wasting. Scum. He's bane where they said. Exactly. He. Look around. That game. Not bad. That's an interesting turn. I mean, this is like that. Goes down that classic kind of classic country. Trope of you know, being the the songwriter who everyone tells, you know, stop doing that. Because you know, it's not gonna be a great. You know, you're gonna fail basically. Right. I don't know. What's that Travis trip? Song gonna be somebody. You know, you kind of has. Yeah. Go ahead. Yeah. Somebody someday. Yeah. Bad company. I guess that song shooting star. I mean, I don't know. It's just one of those classic music tropes of being told. Don't try don't you're gonna fail. And I mean, that's why the whole you know, girl going nowhere. Usually how many times have you met people who try to be musician in just kinda either give up because life catches up because you know, they're not that good over there. I don't know just other things get in the way. Well, tell us more about Calatayud be writing for Rolling Stone there. Thomas mooney. I dunno. It just kind of depends on what they want. And what they like that. I don't know my it's one of those things where you some much of journalism now, especially in the music. Journalists journalism stuff is it's all based on pitches. I mean, it's yeah. You know, you everything's freelance now, and it's kind of you just pitching a lot of different ideas to people, and if they pitch from mid America, I I don't know. I mean, there is better more interested. I I mean, I think it's helped that Lubbock music scene has been kind of important lately. So you can have boots on the ground. I'm not asking definitely help. If I was in Nashville or Austin or. See I would disagree because of this because everybody missed Trump like Vegas, miss Trump. Everybody miss Trump that Trump was gonna win because they didn't have an ear to the ground in middle America. Like, they didn't know that in Texas. He was gonna win by nine like would sad about. But then he was going to carry up into the upper midwest all the way up into Wisconsin. Right. So it seems like we're missing on all levels, not just politics, but music arts and sun RA. Like it surprising for me to hear you say. Maybe if I were in Nashville, or if I were an editor I would wanna hear somebody who has her ear to the ground in mid America right now because that's what's driving the country's policy effectively. Yeah. I mean, that's definitely part of it. But I would also say. You know, everything is built on relationships. Right. Yeah. And I mean, obviously with the internet Email. Social media in general. It's easier to connect with people. But also, I mean, sometimes it takes shaking the hands of the principle that you're working with or like that you're meeting that that actually kind of helps you get looking with certain places, I'm not trying to shine your boots. I'm just saying even if I didn't even if I didn't shook your hand, I would say there's stuff going on out there that we don't know about. So maybe we need to get to know about. It may be I'll go shake his hand. If even if he doesn't know who I yeah. But I mean, I think it's it's just when I say that is just because of like national is the the quote unquote, country music capital of the world for reason is because people go through there. So like now now, I would I think that it's important that I I did start out here because I did meet. Like, I said all these Lubbock songwriters as they were coming up. But if I operated in move to Nashville now, all those people are going through anyways at some point. And that's just part of. It's just a bigger hope. I guess. Yeah. Unless somebody on new who is it. Daniel the digital millennial better labor. Oh, yeah. Come up with better tagline. It's like the digital guru people are going to call me about their emails. There's open, but I could put together records here. Yeah. Man. Came to fruition. Love to, you know, get some people record it and released music until then other side of Texas dot com.

Inside the Studio

Garth Brooks

"Iheartradio presents inside the studio. From your host Joe Lee. This time out, we road trip down to Nashville to talk with Garth Brooks. Garth told me about volume three of his anthology series, which includes his new triple live album, and we also talked about his recent concert. Four eighty four thousand people at Notre Dame stadium. And he shared details about the stadium. Tour is kicking off next March as well as the studio album. He's releasing next year which he hasn't gotten around to giving a name to yet. Despite the fact that he released a single from it, a rocking honky-tonk called all day long last June. Right now, the the basic working title is the fun album. Just a lot of fun on this record. It is untitled on Amazon. Yes, it is untitled drives them crazy. Because everything's data, they know exact, but this one just hasn't been named yet, so it's the fun album because it's all about fun. There's a cowboy song on their a song called. That's what cowboys do, and there's a song on their called party grow. Just talking about how Mardi Gras for us, guys of never heard this term before just a honky Tonkin Halloween, and that's what it is, and so it's just fun, drill, Cajun Zydeco, but yet same time real country and I. think that's what I do, so my thing is you never chase? Whatever's cool today. Congratulations for WHO's cool. But, you gotta be true to who you are. 'cause the last thing you want to do is walk. Had they were going? Okay? Let's go over this. Who Am I today? The greatest gift of been given by the people that come to see us is they allowed me to be me a be okay. They recognize you as a human being the greatest compliment hereto walking with the four ladies are GonNa remain nameless does walking with them. And one of the girls the one that was never said anything she goes. You know you always just appear to me as one of us. That just got lucky. Sweetest thing anybody's ever said to me you. Just one of US got lucky because that's how I feel. Meaning you're still you're still regular person. Yeah, I'm I'm still the the guy that's just full of flaws. We met Garth at the house where he has his offices and also to studios, both of them brand new for himself and his wife Tricia Earwood, he came to the door, holding a baseball bat and wearing batting gloves, and he got us something to drink right away, made sure we were settled in so for superstar who's told tens and tens of millions of albums. And also set a record for North America with his last tour. He did seem pretty much like a regular guy. Of course he's not. When he greeted us, he'd stepped out not from backyard batting practice, but from working on the upcoming CBS television special of that concert at Notre Dame stadium. He'd played just a few days before. And as for that Bat. Brooks is not just a baseball fan. During his thirteen retirement from touring, he reported for Spring Training three times with the Padres, the mets and the Kansas city royals. If you're keeping score at home, he went one for thirty nine with the padres in the mets, which is a point, zero two five average. But he did get one hit with the royals. His music stats are just a little bit better. Is the best selling artist of the SOUNDSCAN. Era is tallied more than seventy million in the US nine, hundred, ninety one when soundscan started. And in fact, sixteen point six million of those sales her, the second album alone roping the wind holds the title has the best selling album of the SOUNDSCAN era. Two years ago, the Recording Industry Association of America Certified Books As the first artist with seven diamond albums. That's ten times, platinum or ten million a piece. And when he did return to touring twenty fourteen, he did it in a big way. His three year world tour with Tricia Earwood sold more than six point three million tickets. He played three hundred ninety concerts in seventy nine cities now brooks went into arenas, playing four or five shows, and most of them, sometimes filling them for two shows a day, and finishing with seven nights in Nashville at the Bridgestone arena. It stands as the biggest North American tour in history. When Brooks tour is next year he'll be marking the thirtieth anniversary of his self titled Debut. Album which pretty much laid out all the ways that he'd both drawn country tradition and open up new frontiers that helped create the context for most of country music today. Brooks grew up on country, but also on seventies, hard rock, kiss and Queen and Singer songwriters like James. Taylor, Dan Fogelberg. For sure, you can hear that singer Songwriter influence on the dance from that first album. Memory. Dance we she. The Uh. You can hear so clearly it brooks hesitate to even record it worrying that it wasn't country enough, and then watching it go to number one on the country charts, but if you give them more straight ahead, country weeper Alabama Klay headphones listen, you can hear the rock side of Garth is well. It's. Man Alabama Clay. Old. got. is he explains in the first volume of anthology at deluxe, repackaging of his first five albums in a hardcover book that tells the stories behind each of the songs. The foundation of Alabama Clay Brooks calls it the carpet. Is it Qatar running through a rock man headphone amp an invention of Tom, scholz of the band Boston. It pretty much. Your guitar sound like Boston. If you listen to Alabama clay with all the harmonies says Garth here comes journey. Here comes queen what you're singing about his country as a biscuit that is garth talking that me I don't use phrases like country as a biscuit, but anyway what you're singing about his country as a biscuit, but it works even if you put the Boston big crunch in, it is still going to be country, so you can turn up your guitar and still be country. Those lessons resin country music to this day. Brooks accomplished building off. That first album is pretty much mind boggling, not just the sales which are legit mind boggling, but the music itself he could drown countries, storytelling tradition, in which the narrative in detail of feature film can be packed into three minutes of music to sing about both vengeful wives and murderous husbands in songs like the thunder rolls and Poppel of Mama, but he also sang about equal rights regardless of race gender sexuality in. We shall be free. Craft. Beer, he made billy. Joel I'm with the Eagles. When he covered Joel, shameless any added fiddle to an Aerosmith song the fever few years later. He did classic country like two of a kind working on a full House in American hockey tongue association, but he also got all singer-songwriter in ballots like the river and really. Just scratching surface. We ever. Ever, change his flow. And the dreamers JUSTA vessel that I follow leary. Go driving to learn from what's behind you. Mentioned for low places yet. Or the fact that garth had a number one country hit with a cover of Bob Dylan's to make you feel my love. Ten years before Adele got. Blown in. And who only zone? I our off. Will. Fume. Be Anthology series put together by Brooks with help from Warren Zan's. The former guitarist of a band called the del goes, who went on to write a really biography of Tom? Petty a few years ago, functions as an oral history of Garth, life and career, told by Garth in those alongside him, the latest volume again hardcover book packed with five CDs is particularly rich in well constructed. It tells the story of Garth's growth is alive performer and begins with the nineteen ninety seven HBO. Concert broadcast HBO's I ever with the country performer when Brooks played to a crowd of nine hundred and eighty thousand people in Central Park in New York City. And then it goes back to his childhood. Is College years. Is I absent at playing music professionally and his explosive popularity in the nineteen nineties when his albums live shows and television special made country, the biggest commercial power in American popular music. How? One of my favorite details comes in the mid eighties when Brooks was touring Oklahoma as a member of the band Santa Fe. As he it's planted Santa Fe love Southern, Rock, and Brooks love George Strait. Perhaps the greatest of the neo traditional centers, Super honky-tonk values back at the center of Country Music in the nineteen eighties. Aw! We went into these dancehalls, its planes brooks, and it was exactly what those places needed. Because during the breaks from the live band, the DJ's would be playing rock and pop. Where we brought the rock and roll. Feel right into the live set. Off. They're also set records. So today. When you hear Florida Georgia and rainy degrading hip hop pop into their country sound. They're expanding on the lessons. Brooks in the dance halls of Oklahoma playing with Santa Fe and then put into his music moving forward. When Kenny Chesney pack stadiums with his country meets Jimmy. Buffett vibe well. He's drawing on how Brooks transformed country with his Queen Vibe or his James Taylor vibe. You could say the same thing for Taylor swift who seems to have soaked up some business lessons from Brooks? He owns his masters in your remains very cautious about digital music, his music now streams and his downloadable through Amazon but only because Amazon last year absorbed the online music store that Brooks himself had launched in twenty, fourteen early on anthology part three. Garth describes the stage as a pulpit. You're either seen from it or you're watching it, he says. And as you're about to hear, he does sound a bit like a preacher when he starts talking about music. I think the only other artists I've ever spoken with WHO is compulsively quotable and is intensely passionate about the dynamic between the audience and the performer his Bruce springsteen. So without further ADO. Church his in session. In the sermon this week. It's pretty good. Garth Brooks welcomed inside the studio. So. We're actually inside your studio, so let me welcome you inside the studio. We have got a lot of ground to cover got a new volume of anthology anthology three. which has you new live album triple live? We've got your upcoming stadium tour. Your upcoming studio album, but let's start with a show. You played just recently Notre Dame, which was filmed for something else upcoming. Special in December and this turned out to be a bit of a neither rain, nor sleet nor snow, nor heavy winds can stop garth brooks from his appointed rounds. It was one of those things where you were worried that the weather was gonNA. Take Front, stay, center, stage and right before showtime everything just kind of went on. Day started off with Nice weather temperature drops. I started to get rain, and then Hale and then snow right, so it was, it was like in typical day in Ireland. It was cool man, so the greatest days start with the night before Friday night. We do this thing called student soundcheck. It's a new tradition that will have with the stadium tour and students with ninety get in free and faculty and staff have to pay like a ten dollar fee to get in, and then all that money goes back to a scholarship for the college were playing, so we were expecting what maybe five hundred six hundred would have been fantastic. Thirty, three, hundred thirty four hundred people shows up this thing so all of a sudden now soundcheck. The concert. And it was great, and it kind of set the tone for the whole weekend, and it was miserable that night misty rainy everybody was soaking wet in the stands on the stage, but nobody seemed to care and that kind of set the whole attitude for the weekend. What made you pick Notre Dame? Notre Dame kind of picked us. We're supposed to take this year off and a guy named Rob Beckham at W. Emmy. Call me one day and he goes. I know you're taking the year off, but. But there's a phone call I think you're GonNa WanNa take and just due to music business mergers everything that's changing always now. Some of the most prolific colleges in our history are opening up for the first time. Ever have concerts and their stadium at Notre Dame was the first one to make the call, so never been a concert in that space before never so it was, it was pretty cool and they when you the sweet thing was. They're the nicest people on the planet at Notre Dame. But immediately you realized they've never had a concert. Because none of them knew anything about concerts, so it was pretty good. You got to hold their hand. They got the hold our hand because we don't do stadiums and it was a good marriage so good that right in the middle of everything right in the middle of the concert that night. What it only makes sense. We had forty five thousand tickets into the on sale thirty minutes into the on sale. We still had sixty some thousand people in the waiting room, so you are not able to do another show because he's just unique, individual shows they were so sweet so good during the show that I said I. Tell You what let's just make a date. And right there and trust me. I know all our people are having a heart attack, so we're going to start the stadium tour Notre Dame and we're going to end the American leg of it back in Notre Dame will come full circle. I was just talking to some of your team here and that announcement came as a surprise. was that a spur of the moment thing for? Anybody. That's listened to do this reliving. Notre Dame the. Greatest Community way to sound and Stadium Dan. It's heaven you know in in field of dreams that hey this have no, it's Iowa. It's Notre. Dame is heaven when you get. So you call that audible onstage routed the tour. Right then and there, and it's really interesting how the book portion of it functions as an oral history of your life, because he's telling the story of you as a performer going back to the very very beginning, but one interesting thing. That stuck out to me was. I forget who said it, said you get a set list. It doesn't mean anything. Here see pirates of the Caribbean. And that rules are more like guidelines. That's what a settlers so is that still the case you're gonNA. Call audibles. Yes, it's all we did in Notre Dame because it's ever changing at ever been to Gar. Show the one thing you're going to know more than anything is. The guy that's name is on the Markie is not the boss. It's the people in the seats. They're the boss where they WANNA go. We go, so it makes it fun for us so instead of the Fed player knowing well. This is what I do I'm GonNa Fiddle here fill the fiddle player is holding both the guitar and fiddle in his hand looking at you because he knows he's ready. The lighting guy the lighting guys telling all the guys standby standby because I get a boom. We're going a different song and everything now is so computer program with video and media. Those guys in the back room are going crazy when you change things up, but the handle it so well. It's interesting anthology three. You tell the story that each step along the way. Is You going to school? And then going back to one thing that really stuck with me. Was Ye talk about how your bouncer? And as a bouncer you learn. which songs pack the dance floors, and which ones don't right? Where is school for you? Now school just started at Notre Dame I could fill up three legal pads with what I learned in two hours on that stage everything from which way the grading in the flooring is going on everything from that to where the points go out as opposed to the clusters. You're just taking notes. The whole time while the crowd is spur in Uganda. Just go crazier while. On a bigger better, the crowd should live. At the entertainer should live in the moment of start. Up because if you can surprise them. They will surprise you. So, you were talking about where the points go. You're talking about the layout of the stage, right? You now do I. Have This right? You had a whole new stage for the Notre Dame show. which you're scrapping and building another stage for the stadium tour, yeah, the Notre Dame show was supposed to be the blueprint for but what we did with Notre Dame was. We realized all the things that work really well on the things that don't. What are some of those things? Give me an example wasn't working, so let's take the cowboys star, so the cowboys star looks like a star on a badge. Right so at one point the point is going to be facing fifty yard line one side of the stadium, but the other side has two legs on it that neither one of them face the middle of the stadium so never. Are you getting to play to more than fifty percent of the audience at any time in the round? That was a big lesson so now replace it with a Mariner Star, which points north south, east and West. Along eight year East and West because the field is longer than it is wide, and now you're getting closer to everyone because the whole thing with us as it all starts with the very first premises. We don't Golden Circle. You don't pay more to be on the floor. Then you do at the very top of the stadium. It's all luck of the draw when you see, somebody said if you're up high and you see, somebody's sitting on the second row. They just got the luck of the draw and computer win. Flag went down for the Dick it on sale every ticket, the same price that somehow we've always always done never done the golden circle where the closest is more expensive and get no offense against people that do that. It's just never been our thing because it just makes the crowd one family, so you've always kept it. Every ticket is the same price sure. There's a philosophy on merchandise to for me. We didn't come from money so anything you can ever get that. You feel like you gotta steal on our bargain on. It fits better. It tastes better all that stuff, so it's pretty cool. Man You, so you do you merch? You do it out of one hundred percent cotton, so it's GonNa last forever I see those shirts twenty years later at Concerts I. See those shirts on Ebay they. They. Look brand new still so that's what we do and they're not fifty seventy five bucks, a piece of twenty five bucks piece something like that and it's cool. A my thing is as an entertainer. Your what they call working. Okay, this has never been working ever less time. I work does roofing houses when I was twenty three did this. Is You come out of the hole and they look at the ticket. They see the price. They look at the stage, the lighting rig everything and they go. Holy Crap show and he started yet and I feel like I got. My money's worth already now when you come out of the hole, that crowds happy. That crowd is not sitting there going okay, you better make this worth it never and when you get to come out to their, it turns to a party like that, and then the party goes all night long. It's fantastic man because. You're never playing a GIG for the gig itself. You're always play in the GIG for the next time you come back, you want to be invited back. And I have shamelessly at the concerts had such a good time like in Notre Dame and just pretty much invited myself back because I'm having the best time in the arena and stadium. You were just talking about that feeling. You get when you come out of the whole. You come up to the stage. Do you still get nervous because there's an interesting moment anthology three, the very start of it search with the HBO special in Central Park In nineteen ninety-seven, and there is documentary evidence. There's photos. Were you say I looked white as a ghost? And indeed there's photos you backstage before you go on, and you do not look well. Brother now down I was scared I mean literally scared of that shaken, and this kind of what you do for live, and so you think you're going to be okay. The problem was didn't WanNa. See The audience before you saw me. See the audience because it's live TV in all those reactions what I didn't plan on was walking toward the stage. The parks guys with me. Hand me a note. A said what this he goes. This was ninety minutes ago. This was the count ninety minutes ago. Under the note, the note says eight, hundred and fifty thousand. And I look at him I said you're telling me. We have eight hundred fifty thousand people out there. He goes now I'm telling you know minutes ago. You had eight hundred fifty thousand people and man when when you look I'm my town seventeen thousand people. When we moved their gay my downs now bedroom community, bocom seats a lot bigger. But I'd never seen that many people in my life in one place, and it scared the hell out of me. I be honest, and it took the whole show for me to. Even kind of absorb. There's a lot of things when I see that show now that I don't even remember 'cause. He just so damn scare. In, you still get nervous coming on. A Savant Bardo in. Utah Fun, part I don't know if you ever do like a water slides. Anything like that. You're scared to death. Standing up there, but as you go, it's the most fun thing on the planet will imagine that getting to be new every time. And there's only two things in my life are like that. Music is new and three time. And Monsieur is. Every time you see. Those are the things that. Let's talk about how touring has changed for you over the years. When you go out next year. You're going to be celebrating a thirtieth anniversary right now. I want to go back to something you talked about in the follow about your first tour in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine. I'm going to quote you here. I love getting in a van with a bunch of Stinky, guys. Laugh your ass off. Go to a club each shitty food. Food, that's been there three days. The Baloney has the rainbow on, and then the girl show up for the boys in the band to play for. It's the greatest thing. Yes, it is so imagine. The food's got a little better Yes, but it's still for the girls, isn't it? I mean it's just is I mean the thing about music that people don't understand which get. You don't get into this thing for money. 'cause it is you're you're shit Outta luck most areas not right. There's no money when you start to sing so when these guys come in, and they WANNA make big business deals, and they throw the money around. You look and go. That's flattering. I'm humbled. But the truth is. Have you seen the stars born. When he looks at her and says you're going to dig in your soul and find your legs. Why are we doing what we doing? So if you're gonNA, come and throw money around great. That's that's fabulous, but what are we doing? Are we doing something that's going to define the time something like that? That's what I want to be a part of I. think that's what we all want to be a part of. But what things have changed I mean these songs. Some of them have been with you for dirty years. How does the songs change for you I'm not sure that they do protect the truth. The thing all starts with seed, and the seed for here was Allen Reynolds producer in the mentor. And his goal was. He told me this when we first started. He goes. My goal is for you to look at that set list. And the song that you're singing doesn't sound anything like the song you just say. Or the silence coming after. And when you look down there, and you see the thunder rolls, playing the thunder rolls or go. This isn't anything like Rodeo. And sure nothing like like we shall be free, which is coming up next after we shall be free as much too young to feel this damn old. That doesn't sound like anything we've done yet. He did a great great job that way so. You do interviews with people all the time. That might not really know who you are or they're doing it because that's their job for their magazine, or whatever and the one question they continue to ask is if there's one song you wish, you never had to sing again. What would it be because they always want you to say fringe? No places. But what they don't understand is I haven't seen friends in places in twenty five e. I play the I corps. And I watch the rest the rest of the performance it's it's a joy man. By bringing. The crowd to the music. And by bringing on the music to the crowd. It gets. If you've ever seen a guard show, it gets to where you don't know who the entertainer who the fan is. It certainly is that way now right I mean. The crowd can do most of the job for you. They always have and it didn't matter if there was nine of them in the crowd, there's nine hundred thousand. They still do the job for. WE JUST WANNA come and sing, don't we? It's my favorite thing at a show. If you want to hear me sing, but okay. I do man I do. WanNa Hussein because it's the voice of your soul. Hope, that's what singing is. It's the voice of hope. It's the voice of love. And I truly think if God said, enter any opened his. You hear music. You know you you talking about the voice of hope, the Voice of love and you just mentioned you shall be free. I want to ask you about that. Songs from nine hundred ninety two. And for a long time. They felt like we were travelling towards the the wishes of that song. Yeah, racial and sexual equality, and all the other things and are moments now were. It feels like we're traveling back right? You know like it feels like we're more divided than ever right. How does it feel like that song or people? Having people more recent song exactly? How do the songs play for you now? They play the same now. If not more relevant, if not more needed to be heard. Than, ever right now, because here's the thing I don't buy into what's going on. I think what's happened is someone has given a microphone to the extremists. Two point zero zero one percent of. The far left the far right and social media has given a mike to them. That other ninety nine percent of us that live in the middle. We're still here. We're here. I get to see them every night. Thank God and they come. And they hug each other, and they'll come with a red SOx Jersey on a Yankee Jersey on, and they got their arms around each other, and they're singing. Because for me, music is the bridge. And so that that's what it's all about, so we can talk about all day about how bad shape or in. I'm telling you when it comes down to the cut in time. Will show up and we're the same country always where we love one, another will pick on each other, but somebody outside picks on us. Good luck to them, 'cause we'll stand together a mentioned before one thing I really liked about anthology threes. It tells the story of your life by talking about as a performer. Going way back on through your college years back to your childhood when you performing with your family, so we did this thing called talent night at the house once a week, mom would disappear one night out of the month to go. Sing it to most law. Yeah that's how mom Kinda still got her fixed to seeing and still was a mom of six kids because she used to. She toured with swing band a step before she had children, she was a teenager, but once the kids started coming. Mom had to put it away for us. And I think that was one of the greatest joys of my life was for Christmas when she got a tour bus and said mom anywhere. We're at any time. Here's your driver. You can tell us your common, not just show up and man. They lived on the road. They were gone. They were touring all the time, and it was the greatest time of my life. As far as the Sun because my sister was out, my brother was out with her mom and dad was out there I was. That was having for me. Those family nights that you were mentioning. What kind of stuff would you be singing? All the crazy thing is manda. We do music and sports. That's what our family does. So we have all Americans may have all staters and I was never one of those. So. I'm GonNa tell you. It's the same way music. We have some of the greatest musicians greatest singers. and Ain't one of in our family, and it all spawns from. My Dad was a great musician. and. My mom was I'm GonNa put her in the top five female voices. I've ever heard in my lifetime. That's where you learned to send you feel that's where school started. Sure Mom, always then. Betsy was the consummate entertainer, so you learned a lot from there so before I ever picked up a guitar. I had so much of it in my head. That playing guitar was kind of like just a formality of where I guess it was head, but I always thought I was going to be a professional athlete. 'cause I always thought I was better than I was the only thing that kept me from being a professional athlete was my athletic ability or lack of you know had so so it was college when you realize. Okay, realize now's weight and you're not going to be a professional athlete. What are you going to do and got my degree in? Advertising thought it was going to be an advertiser and. Ended up one credit hour to graduate and had to go back and started playing music to support myself. He say colleges where you realize real life is waiting, but there also these stories in anthology three. There's a great story containing Onsang. Met I was living two floors up started playing music. We used to put a blanket on the windows, so we could go all night into the day and just keep playing music, so that doesn't sound like real life. was there quite then well? You know colleges that thing where you can run from real life, but once you graduate or get out. You got no excuses left the difference. The the problem that killed tie and he was I was a senior. He was a sophomore so I had the routine down at all. My classes in the afternoon tie had seven am classes. They want to play till five. Am just playing music. You AIN'T GONNA. Get up from seven am wins so his. His Dad Yanked his out of college because his grades were horrible and took him back home to Oklahoma. City, but then again there it is, there's another year of my education Sti- England, you walk around with a guy that's beautiful, young kid, fantastic Dr Player unbelievable voice anywhere we'd go. Hey, garth great, but that kid right there that Tyke it. He can sing, so it was school for me. I enjoyed our time together. Learn a lot, and it only made sense that me and him would be buddies when we launched out as a solo artist for Capitol records, so let's talk about triple live the sequel I guess to Double Live yes, and commemorates the two thousand fourteen twenty seventeen tour. Three, hundred ninety shows seventy nine cities, yes, six point three, or is it six point four? Old It was a bunch of voices. It was beautiful. I always if you've ever seen it from, you can't call him fans. And you! How can't call them tickets? You can column customers. Voices Zaire one of them of red. Tell that you have incredible. Recall on on the shows. You've played jamming the same way. If you hang around baseball players, they can tell you what the county is where they're. Add all the end. They play one hundred eighty games year and you're like I don't know how they do that, but music get all comes back to. To you, if somebody says landover Maryland and the US air arena members the sickest day of my life. You remember those things, so you know you talking to the The beach wagon in Myrtle beach. There's a lot of things that went on there and we can't even talk about you. Remember them like they were yesterday, even though they were clubs that held. Two hundred eighty people all the way up to the stadiums that you know that the people just went on forever triple live. There is a few. New Songs. Recent records, but there's one I want to ask you about your version of an Ashley McBride's. Yes for her. It's girl going nowhere for you. It's guy gone now. What made you to do that song? But when you first hear it, it's like if you hear and people, are you kidding me? You'RE GONNA. Compare these two songs. Yes, I will compare these two sons guy going nowhere to turn the page there road anthems. If you've done this for a living, you live, turn the page and you've lived Geiger. And she just she nailed it. I just took it to kind of apply to me. She took to apply to her, so her lyrics different, and so when we did this thing live and got the response couldn't believe it. This'll tell you what kind of song it is. There's a sign in Notre. Dame, eighty five thousand people, and you don't want to stop this show. You don't want to slow it down. You don't WanNa slow down your shirt on. was whatever the ballot and you sure don't WanNa. Slow Down with the ballot. They've never heard. Then, you play it in Notre Dame stadium and it got so quiet. You could hear pin-drop an on the. She put in that song where you want to crowd respond. They responded like they had heard it their whole life. That's a mark of a great song, so mark of a great songwriter and you talk about Ashley McBride She does singing songwriting better anybody. This is a song about. Being told you're going to go nowhere as a country singer. And, then when you hear the crab when the lights come up, you feel like you're in your clothes. For me my dad. My Dad and my mom and my biggest fans. They really were, but my dad was very much a realist. Same Way I am with my children. So he wouldn't squash your dream. Season's going to tell you if you're really gonNA. Dream like that's a hell of a lot of work I don't know if you want. Put that much work into it kind of thing. And he said Garth wine or will be moving to Nashville. A Sedan amman-tel Tell Ya. I got people that come and watch me when I play, and they just say. You need to pursue this. And how remember his words rest of my life. He says carthy. Tell everybody. The UP. You're right they do. You're right. But. I'm going to believe them to fill in the confidence I. Don't have myself I wanNA. Take the confidence they have me. We're GONNA PACK UP I'M GONNA go try it. and. Really really glad I did obviously there comes a point down the line where you must have had a follow up conversation. No, my dad was always a realist I. Remember Telling Dad Sedan. Not Tell you this, but we just put on her I kind of big outdoor concert, said then we. We sold twenty three thousand tickets to this thing. He, said congratulations, Bud, but never forget. That's twenty three thousand people. You can disappoint so like holy cow. I never saw the other side of the coin so what he was saying I one hundred percent believe what he was saying. Do Your homework studied? Be Ready for the victory did not come in the selling at twenty three thousand tickets the victory. Kuzma those people walking out of. Of That stadium going get that guy comes back. Here I'll be here and that's what he taught me. You know it's funny. Going back to anthology through. There's a moment where you talk about being on tour and losing touch with your own music, and and the advice you get from Alan Reynolds is. Are you listening to the songs? You're singing God? Could it be that simple? Could it really be that simple? We're in Canada were making the run across northern Canada, so it's all the greatest towns to play, too so it's Winnipeg Edmonton Calgary. Wait places to play, but I cannot find it in my soul for the life of me, so I don't know if we talked about this and yet the algae. If we don't, I should have put a bounty on my own head. To, try and get things jumped up and it was a five hundred dollar bounty for anybody could not neil master in the show. This comes up. Oh, does it okay this? Version of Beckley so it was just to get. Everybody fired up and we had fun, and it was move around, but still. No matter all the tricks, no matter how you dress it up if it ain't burning inside. There's this cold air that comes out when you sing. It so called. Alan Reynolds is Alan I'm not done I. Don't know what it is I. Don't know if I'm tired. WHAT AN ALLEN REYNOLDS GOES! Are you listening to what you're saying? What do you mean they want the thunder rolls? We played exactly he goes. Are you listening man that night? I listen to the lyrics of much too young. It took me back to sit in on that. There was a coffee table in a house and still water no chairs around it runner knees who set near scribbling on notebook paper. Right much too young. When Randy Taylor Looks Amigos just WANNA line that says worn out tapeh occurs. Do That's all along? And it all brought it back and man. Everything came with it to one set. Fire starts burning then the whole arena start to get on fire and I have not looked back since that day I have never had a cold speller dry spell since three hundred ninety shows. Some of them were fourteen sixteen and in twelve days. You're doing two shows a day. In some of these places you're doing matinee shows, which used to be you go back to the nineteen sixties. That's the way it was done right even in the seventies, the stones played two shows a day on their seventy tour, but nobody does that anymore. They I tell you there was one of the shows. That was just another show. Ever was all because of that talk. Dad Is the power of the song and when people go, what's the future of music or music business? We have no future if it's. Okay you since you brought up the future, the music business. Streaming on Amazon now, but you've resisted the streaming era, and you still want people interact with your stuff as albums. How long are you going to hold out or you gotta? You gotTA. Hold on to. I am so it's. It's just who I am. All streaming does is become for me and no offense to invite this. My opinion streaming just simply becomes background music for whatever you're doing. It's not the reason why you do. Why do there's going to be people that find music and find songs, but the truth is? Let's define what music is. A radio single is the song that pisses the least amount of people. It's safe. It's Commercial Fair enough and I've got songs like unanswered prayers. I got songs like the change that were singles that I think are the most important pieces I'll ever speak as an artist. What is that song? You have the barrel of the gun in your. Year. Makes you stop? Makes you think. If you're anybody, that's thirty years old or older. His album cuts. It was things that. Weren't. Safe never things. It really took the music in the lyric into your world. Those things are here and those things are important to here, so he sat down to listen to Hotel California. There's a single on their called Hotel California. The album is called Hotel California and for me. It's thirty something minutes of just. Righteousness of highs lows turning it up. There's not a greater song for me. There's that room where all the great songs live. Life in the fast lane might be the perfect rock and roll saw. But pretty maids all through. Kidding me. Just as equally strong as equally as important was a single one was not but yet both affected my life, so my thing is just what the album does is give the artist voice. When you look, and you've listened to one hundred songs, and it's one hundred different artists. You have a chance of losing what AN ICONIC ARTIST IS! Were expecting another studio album from you know. All Day long is the song we've heard from it, but. That's been out since the summer. What can you tell us about this record? It starts with song called the road. I'm on right now with Amazon. If you do the album you get the road, I'm on three ordinary. Right the record. The road I'm on is just a simple salute to very much like. If you had the album, fresh horses was a song, called the old stuff on. It just talked about touring and the road. I'm on talks about the road. I'm on now's entertainers human being where we're at? Because for me I think music should give you a piece of the artist with everything that's out there. You should know something more about the artists once you hear a song. And Notre Dame, he played something the music one. Oh, one trilogy! It was a Gabe Dixon Song. And then also let it be in. Hey, jude, yes, at this come to be called the music one a one trilogy. What it is is We're going to launch a new tradition. We started at Notre Dame. We play colleges. We're GONNA do this music one on one and we're GONNA make sure the kids in the audience. Do not forget the greatest artists in the greatest songs. It's kind of feel like it's our job. So what we'll do is, we'll mix something new with something old that Kinda ties together so for us. Gabe Dixon everybody here in town nosing great session player great singer. He was an artist for a little bit. But you can tell his love. And Passion is in songwriting. He was with Paul McCartney for a run, and then legend. Has It that Paul ask him to stay on, and he said manages really WANNA pursue songwriting. Do my own thing I. don't care who you are if Sir Paul. Ask you to stay on, I'll tell you. What do you want me? Only sell my family, yeah. Whatever make to do. Yes, and this kid was so hell bent on just creating music. That that's what he does, and he's fabulous, great artists, so it starts with a live again of him. But when you play, live again if you've ever heard the song. It's Billy Joel Meets Sir Paul McCartney head on. It's gorgeous, but it only lent itself to. That it be. and Hey Jude. Pretty cool, but that is the one and only time probably will ever be played so the music one one trilogy then. We could maybe get Ashley McBride's Guy. Going nowhere with Bob Seger's. Way. It's GonNa work. Yeah, so our job is to just I wanNA. Say Educate, but the truth is when songs are so great I. Think the kids already know them. It's just to make sure that they understand what a great song is. A great artists are and My thing is if go. Hey, you know. We already know that that's a lesson. I don't think you can learn enough something. You brought up a little while ago. When you're talking about the sanctity of the album. Yes, what's the song you WanNa? Hear Gun to your head. What's the song you want here? So let me ask you You brought it up. What's the one you WanNa? Hear at any time. We've mentioned a couple of turn the page. Ricky, skaggs got a song called to highways. George Strait has a song called I can't see Texas from here. The crazy thing, though is we take a fifteen minute break comeback. Gun Your head. Tell me this on. They'll be three different ones and fifty minutes is it'll be three different ones? That's what I love. It is love music and I love work comes from so when you hear girl going nowhere a were pretty maids, all in a row or princess musicology, all these things come into your head as just great music that have kinda built in define you as a person I would have to ask somebody who's not a music for a living to see if music means the same thing to them if it's a fabric, their life that they can point to. I'm sitting here in this room sternly that I've known since she was a kid, and even though she's in the music business, she's not an artist herself. But songs have built every minute of her life. When she remembers her mother. She'll remember certain artists. You Remember Your Dad. You remember certain artists and I think that's the power of music, so here's the bottomline record labels own the music. Artists do not such the first mistake. We commonly makers Oh. My God why that artist allow his song to be on an ex. LAX commercial well, we artists don't own our music very rarely. Does that happen? So it's the record labels, so it's more like a commodity or a piece of product for them, but for us the listener it's everything. So, when you say what's the future of music business? It's still always going to be a business. It's still GONNA be product that's traded. But for us as a listener I think it's the Gospel. And I would love to see music treated like that, but you understand why I can't. Because art and business can't live. Your the. Little to had jake. Mile lease. On. Before we go I. Just want to ask you one question. Yes, I'm pulling out anthology part three lovely book that I mentioned a few times, and we open up for those of you. Listening home opened up to a page. With a picture of Garth with one of his first. Tell me about that mustache. Man Okay, so this must have been when Sandy Reid about when sandy and I got married. Because in all our wedding pictures I have that must do. Oh, yeah, and sandy hated it I didn't know anybody. That liked it well. Yeah, I'm not surprised. Why did you keep it? Are you kidding me, man? It's cool. Look at that. Is that not cool? It's the ugliest thing on the planet I would vaguely describe it as you look like the cable guy, but also like you're gonNA steal something out of my house. Avid Abo US man, but everybody in that band had facial hair, so I had to be cool, right? That is a great picture man, so the kid next to me Mike Skinner. When you say you go to school. He's one of my years of education. This kid was a self taught fiddle player that played Kinda Southern Rock Guitar. So when I heard a fiddle playing with this kind of muscle. It made sense that I love George. Strait and I love Chris Liu. But also love Boston. Can these two music's live together. To? In garth Brooks career if people are familiar with garth brooks his career. Alabama clay and a song called fit for a King Alabama clay was off the original album for King off sevens. Both of them have the hardest electric guitar. I've ever heard country music and they're both the most traditional country music songs that I've ever cut in my career so a Mike Skinner. Was the bridge that showed me you could put those two things together. We go through your jet Linzie Tom. Skinner Troy Jones. They all taught me stuff. I'm really lucky that anybody that I have set and talk with. Has Been A a founding block. That has built my life and the great thing is. Twenty stories later are thirty stories later in the career as far as years go. I'm still laying down foundational block. There are things that changed my life that I get to do in music and fine which makes me think. Things that lasts forever usually take forever to build. So my job is to do everything I can do while I'm living and breathing and if I've done my job, right? A Hundred Years after I'm gone hopefully the music. The music. Garth thank you very much for joining us is right now. Inside the studio is an IHEART radio original podcast. This episode was written and hosted by me Joe Levy.

I never in a million years would I even risk it like there's no way. I know that there are all these different stories about what he was doing but no way not a chance. So what was he doing? was He just kind of getting off on the people in the Zoom Room? Is that what it is or he was on another call with someone else or allegedly, and again who knows how much of this is true but he says he was also on another call at the same time.

The music awards tonight at eight seven central on see. If you're looking for something to do radio personality Elvis, Duran may be able to help all of us out. In the morning show, I'll help you out what do you want to do today? What do you want to accomplish today? Where you want to get done Gandhi what do you want to get done today? I actually have sold a couple of paintings and I need to finish the very finishing touches on them and then send them out. So that's what I would like to accomplish today. Many people are finishing up their artwork to send. Trying pretty impressive Daniel, what are you accomplishing today anything? No Oh. Yeah. Tonight. My friend gave me these fresh Ravioli stuffed with meat and I've been dying to eat them for the last couple of days I am going to accomplish that this evening. Wonderful Accomplished. I had to cancel last week. So now I'm rescheduled today, I'm going to the dentist for teeth cleaning. They're going to figure out like all these things that are falling on my head I. Think I've cracked something over here over here think filling fell out and I'm just I'm falling apart. So I'm sure if you're a dentist, you have seen all sorts of stuff crawling through the door. People have been stuck in their houses, seven months without being able to come out and have their dentistry taking care of I'm. So I've never been excited about going to the dentist until now I'm ready. I actually love going to the dentist. Then you figure out what's wrong if there's something wrong fix it but just on any pain no pain. Yeah. What's up? So my fiancee heather went to the dentist a couple of weeks ago and they said she had a cavity and I'm like, yeah. What's the big deal? She goes I've never had a cavity before and she's in her you know. You. Didn't have a cavity till I was in my early fifties Oh. Really. Yeah. To meet two years ago. No. I have cavities like all the time. Then again, I eat a lot of sugar. So it probably. How is that? No, it was two weeks ago that straight. said he's given up sugar but every time we look at him, he's eating sugar. Okay. Well, since you guys made me realize like chocolate milk actually has sugar and stuff. How did you not know that? Well, I thought it was just like the chocolate flavor I didn't know they actually added sugar to it. Chocolate flavor actually is not good on its own, you need sugar and. I've actually started to look at labels and I realized there's a lot of sugar and pretty much everything. So it's been a lot harder than when I was not looking at labels. So if you're giving up sugar I suggest to look at the labels because you don't realize there's sugar in everything. Really is so you have cut back on sugar. Well, I've yet e okay, you just admit it. That's what you'd okay. Don't fight them. All right have cut back on Sugar I. Did cut back on sugar but now I've kinda given up sugar because now I realized. Look, guys apparently were right that there sugar in everything you can't kind of give up sugar either you slow down on it. Are you give up sugar sugar and everything but okay well, then I really cut okay cutback before now I've really cut. Okay. Okay. That's what it is. Yeah it's impossible to give it up entirely all I'm allowed to have sugar on the weekends I'm allowed to have sugar at this special event that's not giving it up. Yes I am allowed to treat myself on a weekend we're going out to dinner. That's fine but don't walk in here and say you've given it up and move on but other than that. No No. You're not getting. You're getting the last word. And crawl in your. If this was like recovery, you would not have a coin nate. I'm not addicted to many things until I realized I'm addicted to sugar because when you guys start yelling at me like you just did I realize Oh, maybe I do have a problem. I tell you what back? On coffee these past four days religions Johnny got really sick. Uncle Johnny because my heart's already racing anyway, I'm a mess and now I'm finding that extra caffeine makes my my chest hurt and. See. So I've cut back on coffee but. Tragedy. Speaking of people are texting how are froggy and uncle? Johnny froggy is. Man He's a Miracle Yep. It was what day last week did he say so a little over a week ago that's it. They opened up his skull and they operate on pulled out some aneurisms and and he's got his speeches. Great. He's got a good attitude. He's he's great. He's miracle brother Uncle Johnny is not doing well still. I was hoping to hear from doctors yesterday because I'm the the point of contact and I left left a message. They didn't call me back because he is still in suspension he is in a deep sleep where they're trying to get his blood to come back to life because it was full of bacteria in. Anyway, so they're still waiting for that to. Take a turn. For the good. So I'm hoping to hear from the doctor today I'm actually going to go and see him today. Okay so I can't wait to hold his hand and say yo uncle Johnny. To crap man let's wake it up. Right. So. That's the froggy and uncle Johnny update a lot of good and a lot of caution. So with that said. We need feel goods producers, Sam. I am here for you baby. All right. So this story came from Debbie Nelson who lives in Wisconsin it's kind of unbelievable. It sounds like a thin movie plot to be but it's amazing. It's coming out of Russia and there's a man named Nikita Vancouver and he was on appear when he noticed a swimmer struggling in the water there were already two guys in there trying to help him out but they were clearly also having some trouble. So Nikita. Jumped in to help the kicker. Is Nikitas Wheelchair? Okay. This guy is paralyzed from the waist down alot. Yes, and he unfortunately lost the use of his legs thirteen years ago you guys on the very same peer rescuing another person from drowning. Fractured three vertebrae that day thirteen years ago and has been the wheelchair ever since but that did not stop him from jumping in the water and helping keep this swimmers head above. The waterline and he helped guide him to safety. He was ironically back at the Pierre creating a documentary about his spinal injury. So the rescue is actually all caught on video because again they were videoing anyway and it's up at Elvis Dot com it's just unbelievable I didn't know that there were these this kind of selfless hero in the world, but knows he's a superhero. So thank you so much debbie for this incredible story, and if you have a story that deserves to be featured, email me Sam Elvis Duran dot com subject minefield goods. Thank you SAM.

It's all about breakfast cereal in when they first came up with this idea we're like, that's brilliant. And it's doing really well, you know what I they really are onto something I don't know do you guys have a lot of? Scotty. Yes sorry I dropped my cereal. We do we have a couple of thousand followers and Andrew. Says that we have upwards of like five thousand listens a week. So that's pretty good. That is how. Larry how many listeners do you have for your Brooklyn podcast? The Brooklyn Boys podcast has about thirty five thousand to forty thousand a week. Wow, that's wow rate. That's awesome. But it's down and we used to be. So we want to think you know I think you guys needs new stuff to argue about it. Really. The Brooklyn Boys podcast is really about two guys arguing, right? New -periences. The thing about serial killers is they always have new serial coming. They always have zero to talk about truth. Anyway. So a my question is this I saw this on Reddit. Scotty? Yes. Of all of the cereal box characters who? If they all entered a coliseum only one exits alive. We've talked about this. We're we're going to do it better here. Okay. Who is the? Ultimate serial killer music scary. Scary Oh the undertaker. Yeah. Cereal, box characters into the COLOSIO. X. Ally, really be too can SAM. The lucky charms leprechaun. About the dangerous snap crackle and pop rice krispies. Voice The dangerous captain crunch don't rule out captain. Crunch. See My. Vote could be with Tony The tiger, ass. Or if you're allergic the BUSBY FROM The tricks rabbit? Wouldn't trust him Danielle how about Blueberry Count Chocula or Berry. Cereal Monster Cereal so. Could it be a? A match between Tony The tiger and the monster. Cereals. I duNNo. Tony's tough. He really is he could kick ass, but you can't rule out sonny, the cuckoo bird cocoa puffs because he's out of his mind and he. He might peck you to death to. You have to also think about Corny from cornflakes cornelius full name but the rooster on cornflakes like I think a cockfighting man, he could go nuts. I can gouge your eyes out with his claws and I think Tony The tiger is he he's in captivity so I don't think that he's got what it takes to fight back. No offense but I'll tell you even tigers in captivity will kill you. Because your dinner and you are dinner to them but look at Toucan can Sam for Halloween. He's aware wolf so I mean, he can you. Know. She didn't see it on, hold it up. Yeah I'm. Voting Tony, the tiger, any thoughts Gandhi? I feel like we're really discounting Fred Flintstone. Pebbles because he's like isn't he a caveman? That they could do some damage domes with the club. Yeah. Yeah. Weapon and adopt pet dinosaur. Okay. All right. There was someone else you said in the beginning that I was thinking possibly what were some of the name was in the beginning snap crackle and pop kid from Captain. Crunch. Oh. No, it was the little the the leprechaun because he doesn't have magical powers so Magical powers. Has that no one else has that. Yeah. Yeah. But also captain crunch could make you walk the plank. What NATO? Mean I don't think you mentioned but Franken Berry. Did I was dead like he's dead, there's no way you could kill him. Kill everybody else in Detroit you could shop his arms off. You'll still walk around and we'll still bite you if you cut his. Hands Down all right. Then you have count Chocula and you have blueberry the goes it goes. So. What actually sent a Texan Hey don't don't underestimate the power of strawberry shortcake. Whatever power? told me. Continue. Well, that's the thing you you never ever would guess in a million years someone that's like that would hurt you. But well, let me tell you when I was growing up had all those strawberry shortcake dolls that they blueberry muffin and and they all smell if you put them all together, this sent alone would kill you because. When you put them all together. It was so bad. That's awful. Yeah. Thanks for that wonderful memory from your childhood. Welcome. I don't know who missing or they're more. They're more characters that were missing out on Scotty Yeah there're more. There are some obscure ones I mean there is the the crazy craving from honeycomb. He was like the Tasmanian Devil like he could kill you too. I mean there there can look back here. I, have a lot of cereal back here. What's Gary I'm going to say the snap crackle and pop boys least likely to kill you I. Think there's the other end of the spectrum there like the scary and brody of breakfast cereal box. About. Sugar Mall you. Got About sugar from Sugar Chris Hey. Where's James Online one I just answered your question. He is online online one. James, how you doing? Are you going I'm good. Why I ripped us off from reddit. Cereal box characters all enter the coliseum who walks out the winner. I was thinking that the lucky charms. Leprechaun for sure I mean these guys make a living off of being elusive. So like they're gonNA walk a lot. This is true. He'll be so elusive fit I never thought of it that way. I never someone to send a text never underestimate the luck of the Irish. I thanks for playing on. James say. Thanks guys. Tank. Mara is. On Line Four.

Many ways even looking for apartments I was like did anyone die here because I heard you have to ask they won't just tell you. So that was like my first question everywhere who died you I think some state have. Have Law disclosure laws were. Your husband would know this right now but I think I think you're right. There are some states I've asked that before do you have to tell them if someone's like dead in the House are haunted house and he's like some places you do. I. Think if it's been reported is haunted or if someone had been murdered there in the house and I don't know if natural causes counts I don't know but I do know and I love this I tell them all the time. If you're in New Orleans and you see a house for sale in the middle of the quarter, it will actually say haunted but because they actually get extra money, you'll pay more for. No, now it's an attraction especially in a place like that you can. Pay Money to. Fifty grand for the Ghost Erica online five wants to explain the witching hour. I. Would Love to hear I know about the Happy Hour I've got that one. pair. Tell us about the witching hour. Hey guys.

But this doofus ends up following three people because I told you I only follow five hundred people and I noticed I was really really close to my Max right now. So go and see and I'm like, Hey, what did you do? She said Oh my God did I follow them Oh my God. I look like the psycho instead of her and never ever letting her use my stuff again I don't know why she didn't just user Bernard Count Why did you? Why would you give her your account information I don't know I should've asked why do you need mine? She must have done something bad with the other one I. got to go investigate this. Success on your door taking you away in handcuffs. Good thing you're rolling around the country hiding from the law of course the best is when you get a DM, why are you following my boyfriend I'm like I don't know your boyfriend I'm sorry my friends he's my account. Also. Did you WanNa talk about that creeper that was on you in an followed drunk? Look. Okay. So we all have people who like to just give as hell and they're just people have no lives I feel I feel sorry for be honest I feel sorry for them. They're very pathetic. But this guy was. GonNa Cram and so you blonde right? Yes. He sends boyfriend messages. He sends me messages he leaves them on the show account whatever I've blocked him. Thought it was over this guy created another account. and. Just to follow and talk crap and he's talking crap to himself from himself. He's two different people, but he's using the same exact name and same photos. So it's like, what are you doing? You're terrible at this so God. Is. Exactly. That's the question. What is wrong with people. I just don't understand why anyone. Has the time or the? To do things like that to. Do that to people I don't get it. either. I. Don't know if it's because he loves kind of a hateful comment and then people started yelling at him about it. So he felt the need to then go and leave a nicer comment and say that the other version of him didn't mean what he said and it's like I don't. I'm like every personality I guess has their own instagram account and they're all GonNa talk to each other, but it's Your hypothesis is the other version of him didn't mean to be so harsh. That's what it looks like. Someone left to come underneath. It said, dude, this is the exact same person. You even said, follow my backup account in your account what are you doing? Just somebody weird people. Billy online twenty four interesting hey billy. Elvis how are you? I'm doing fine. Sir. So you're talking about we're talking to talking to Gandhi about she and her friends and they have their burner account. But. You and your wife. You know your wife used to have a burner account as well. yeah. She had a burner account was called fence. Felt it. Right. Yeah. That's so she can creep on people that he doesn't WanNa know. Watching him yet. Fascinating to. Be. Able to keep an eye on someone without them, knowing that you're near them. I don't find need to do it but. I, do have a list of names. I. Wouldn't mind checking out like. Telling you and we have a rule. You can never a troll comment on from our fence to count because that's just annoying and we don't want to be associated with any of that. It's just to lurk, which is still creepy I know. Your wife does your wife still have her account? Oh, I have no idea. We don't talk about it anymore. All that thing you know. I know how I find it interesting when someone's trolling trolling one of our accounts and the they have zero followers, they follow zero people. They don't have a profile photo. It's just like. The thought Billy of taking the time and energy to start an account justice say mean things to people. It says so much about you. You're such an a hole you really are. We we could sit here and talk about the psychological makeup of someone who does that but I. Would say it what it is you're in a home. There's no other way to slice it. This is why I love you Elvis. You tell the truth well, Billy Billy I hope you're having a safe day today you Thank you for listening. Ended up. Stay safe out there. Okay. All right abby abby got caught with her FESTA account. And would happen. Hey Elvis. I'm so glad I got through. My Name's. My Name's Abby Catfish, my ex boyfriend girlfriend into following me. On instagram. Want because I wanted to see what they were doing and why he chose her over me and basically found out she's super boring. But the best part was that I was following her as if I was she was really into triathlon. So I followed all these triathletes and she thought that I was one which was the best part. Well I got caught because one of my damn friends followed my cow and she figured out that my friend was following my count and she also following my real instagram. So it was all the friends fall. posted. It says like mutual friends or following. Oh, yeah, I got an ICBM saying, please stop following me Abbey. You set out just to like. Or whatever, and then when you got caught, did you actually stop and go? Oh God this doesn't look good for me. That moment of punching the guy like Oh God, what did I do date? It was it was literally worse thing getting punched in the Gut. Thanks for admitting. We've all learned a lesson from you. It's all good but. I'll. Tell your friends about your. Account. Don't follow your friends on your. Pure trolling. Elvis now that I got through which I've been listening to you guys since I was four years old I used to try to get jingle ball tickets all the time when I was little Is there any way I could get a t shirt just approved that I made it through?

It just drive through ones though they have some cool drive-thru neither fun that we go because they're fun W- you don't haunted house because they're scared there's nothing it's just a bunch of actors with your bloody faces Spa. Ghandi's freaked out she can't do it. nope. She's She's convinced that if you're the type of person that will be an actor in one hundred house that you are probably a murderer anyone now she said, I think you're one step away just one step away from wanting to allocate chop someone's head off. Then am I, must be because I've always wanted to work in a haunted house and dress up and scare the senior. On the show was going gonNA murder somebody next to nate it will buy you Crazy. The Best Yeah runner-up for murder on the show. I would lump maybe I should have said something earlier I would love to hear from people who are actually in the cast in the cast of a haunted house. You know they've seen some all all sorts of crazy messed up stuff. You. Know just and I think that they get this little joy out of scaring the crap out of you and maybe making some people pee their pants or whatever scream and I think that if you're getting out of that, you're just one step away from taking it further. Oh man what are the makeup artists at great adventure for hollow fests? Her name is Andrea, Olivia and she does all the makeup. She's amazing and she dresses like that during the year two. Oh No. I don't think so but I think issues like that stuff. I don't think she's going to go kill somebody the. Last year I visited a haunted house in New York City this place Bain and they got they get to touch you. So I liked I actually liked it I liked the fact that next level haunting because it was like the pushing you into this area go into this room like and they're right in your face I mean obviously we can't do that. Now I, actually like Oh, my God I'm I'm into it for that weird reason of like the thought of maybe this could go either way you know what what are you saying because my whole life I Wanted houses and it was just like people popping out and it's swearing so. You're saying you actually think you get a thrill out of knowing that their they may kill you know well not. An elevated, yet elevated level of. Being like. Put me in a coffin they shove. Of coffin and spun it around which we had one now. I don't know you know I D I m seeing some text messages and someone said that was probably the most fun job they've ever had. Wow, that's awesome. Jay here. Where's Jaden on twenty four? Hey. Jay. Jay Talk about the haunted house she worked for and what role did you play? Now I was at a haunted house Syracuse and just one of the actors and I. Honestly it was probably the most fun job just trying to come up with a new techniques and waste to scare people and and seeing sometimes the sheer terror on people's face you make sense it just makes it worth it and and and now there's been ups and downs. I've been punched in the face by people that have just been scared in it but it at the end it was definitely or it. I loved it I do it again if I had the chance, we'll Jay. I mean when you take that job, don't say you hate keep in mind there is a good chance you're going to scare someone and they will you know. Without knowing without. Power, they will just be senseless. was never worn. I was never warned about that until a happened but you know looking back at it it wasn't that big of a deal but. It's been a scare people and the fun and is wakes at worth. One hundred percent. Gandhi. Gandhi J. sounds like a normal guy. He doesn't sound like a murderer to me a little murdering me just kind of because he said he loved and even though he got punched in the face, he was still about it. That sounds like I. Don't know maybe some Ted Bundy stuff us. See next year if one of the if if it's a normal Halloween next year, I want to work at a theme park and be one of those for one night only I wanna be a corpse bride and I want to have shovel that I just drag along behind me and the noise on the and then just look at it and don't even talk to you. So that sounds easy. Sit Jay, what you do is more physical like you like jump out from behind things and. Scare the crap out of people. Exactly Yeah I. J. Thank you. Are you working there against you? Know. Doing this year. Maybe. Next year we think clean up a little bit Jane. Thank you Cindy Twenty three. Cindy Loves IT WHEN PEOPLE WOULD PEE their pants.

Do you have some guy dressed up in a vampire costume come in, mop it up I mean, how do you gotTa clean that? You have to detour out of that particular room. So it's actually the next group that Kinda gets gypped. So usually people are auditing because they screamed so loud. Reflects thing. But. It happens as often people paying themselves.

If you look around the house you're living in right now it's it's pretty much haunted. My frightening. Come into the kitchen look stack of dishes in the sink. I'M NOT Scary take a break. We're back after this. Got Something to tell US Senate tax fifty, one, hundred look at the texting standard data and messaging rates may apply Albie strain in the morning show. The morning. All. Right. So we talk about this a lot on the show, the lack of sleep in our lives. Are Any of you sleeping really well, these days. nope. Not at all. No. So I think there are three things I'm going to start doing number one. Only use your bedroom for sleep. That's it don't do anything else in there. What? Time sexy time kitchen counter man alley. I'm reading this. Article Off Bustle If, your bedroom has become your office in your gym and your Yoga. Studio whatever. Watching, TV it staying in Reading A. stuff on your phone don't do it. Only use your bedroom to sleep, and then they're saying only crawl into bed when you're ready to go to sleep. That's the hard part. Yeah. They don't want you tossing and turning. I was up again this morning at one, thirty, one, forty, five for no reason you know got up in your house. No No. Keep me up. Well, Sheldon. Woke me up this morning and said Hey make sure you don't miss the alarm and it was an hour and a half before the alarm. Go Dude this even close to. Put a gloss. Also, it's so important to move your body during the day. You just a little bit. You don't have to do like a three hour workout or something. They're saying you need to move your body every day, and this is what we have a hard time getting scary to move his body. Forget it. I've been doing more sleeping than ever real during quarantine. into this things. You're saying you're doing more sleeping than ever, but you're not sleeping well, no, it's not a good sleep, right? It's not the deep sleep where you feel refreshed at the end. It's the you wake up wh. Lethargic. I hate that you remember needing. Do you really wake up making those noises, I? See it. It doesn't make a sound, but where I, it's more of a visual, but we're on the radio. So I have to accent it with what was sound. Sound would be if a bad idea we and this is something we should not do. But I've thought about it for a second nab idea because it would make it worse. There's gotta be a way like, for instance, last night when I was up at one thirty I know, Alex said he was up at one thirty as well for like an hour I wish I had known could have said something to him, but I don't want to wake him up. Yeah, right hey are you awake there's gotta be some way like you turn your light on we're I'm awake if you WANNA say hi and then turn it off and you go to sleep I don't know. But then if you start talking to someone, then you're going to be longer. So we don't want to do that. You just heard the rise and fall of an idea. I always forget stuff in the morning. Always, I'm always creeping back into my bedroom and I try to be quiet but then I, realized can't find it without the light some like cover your eyes I'm about to open the light up and then. The whole. Of. The allow Larry. So look. Use your bed for sleeping only. Only. Crawl into bed when it's time to sleep don't watch. TV. No stimulation whatsoever if you're going to have sex, do it the bathroom floor like all normal people? Try to move your body a little during the day. It's they're saying. So let's see if we commit to some of that stuff. Come on scary move your body today. Your jaw. Eating. Right now these are pumpkin see. It's okay. That doesn't sound too bad. Girl. Low Calorie. Very good. All? Right. Let's take a break. We're back after this maybe. Hey, this is Dan Shea. Rogan. What's up? Boy. Elvis Duran. Elvis three in the morning show. On the radio. New. Tell someone.

We've had some controversy there already, but every once in a while they'll light it up and they'll they'll have a contest they'll do they'll do quizzes or whatever, and whoever's last in that room wins ten thousand dollars. So if you WANNA watch it can go to Z one, hundred, dot com do they want to stop by and say, Hi, do I don't know if that guy keeps talking about the time when we have time to go all gone.

Have you been doing this thing? People have been doing this scam for years you go and you know you get more food in the Burrito Bowl than you do in the Burrito. So what you do is you order the Burrito Bowl and then ask for a Tortilla on the side and they'll just use a slow throat new here is that what you can get a Burrito and you pay less you know this right? All they've figured it out the Tortilla on the sides came as now over there now charging twenty five cents a Tortilla. Oh, that's ridiculous. I know it's still cheap. Best invention ever say eletricity anyone WanNa go against me electrity electricity is a good one I. Think I'm GonNa stick with you on that. Anyone vaccines solar powered electricity does that still count as electricity? electrcity yeah. Trinity. So. Okay. On the list, the ten most important inventions of all time electricity, the telephone vaccines, the Lightbulb, the Internet TV computers, cars, anesthesia wow there's. Airplanes are on there. What about the wheel does that not count as an invention anymore I would think it should that one seemed pretty important folks for the toilet bowl. Okay thanks. Scare you. A corner. Right I know. But with a little luck trysofi see if you don't have electricity, you wouldn't have lightened. You wouldn't see what you did in the corner which. Does everyone have their costumes from Spirit Halloween. Got Mine. You Yeah retelling each other what we are. I think we did already kind of. Yom Homeland. Her. Oh, you are Oh, you are I. Don't think I knew that that's awesome from voice. Cool. Why are you laughing at that nate 'cause I've seen every episode and I know some stuff that homeland. Yes Last. Seen is the best imagining you doing that so Spirit Halloween own do we love them? They make us have fun every year but they also have this program which is focusing on making hospitals less scary for kids and their families. It's called spirit of children they've raised over sixty five million dollars for the child life development at hospitals across the country donations to spirit of children they stay within the local community where you donate money one, hundred percent of funds go toward a child life department which. Credible you get any join the money you fill out this little circle that says spirit and your name, and they put it up on the wall. If you come to my area, you will see my name wall. Spirit. Almost. Every. Time I go in I donate because you know you and you get these little cute rubber bracelets but I always want to you know I, don't want to say no when they ended up so I just fill it out I'm all over the place I'm like Oh. My Gosh this is so funny. So support our friends at spirit. Halloween especially because of spirit of children, we love the fact that we have so much fun with them every year but also they're doing great things for kids. By the way, a texture is saying electricity is not a discovery. Trinity is a discovery not an invention. Absolutely true. Should have prefaced it by saying the harnessing of electricity was the invention. In there you have it wasn't it Ben Franklin. WHO FRUIT FLEW THE KITE And try. To come down the wire into the key the jars. Give regretted that. Nine neighbor hit by lightning. He had the craziest scar ever. Use Love Scars I do I loved his car was like Greg Shire back again.

All right health experts say that the cold months ahead will make the coronavirus more dangerous since colder temperatures create a better environment for the virus to stay alive and so does the lower humidity dry air passages also make it harder for mucus to remove the virus from your body. Health experts are also saying covid nineteen cases. Here we'll begin to rapidly accelerate within the next week. In fact, the country up sixty thousand new infections. Yesterday that is triple. What the daily average was back in June one restrictions started to ease hospitalizations are also up in forty two states. So as we say, keep being careful and follow the CDC guidelines as best as you can. Senate, Republicans are fast tracking the confirmation of conybeare ahead of the November Election Mitch. McConnell. Says the Senate. Will vote to confirm her on Monday president trump nominated the conservative judge to replace the late Liberal Justice Ruth Bader GINSBURG and it's been a pretty big deal for a lot of people. Democrats have argued that the winner of the November election should choose her replacement as Republicans wanted the same course of action when Obama was still in office and finally German scientists say. That, they have measured something new and it's the shortest interval of time ever recorded. They used an accelerator in Hamburg and it's called a dough second. It is a trillions of a billionth of a second.

#202 - Sharna Burgess on Finding Out She Wasnt Returning to DWTS + Brent Michaels on What A Radio Programmer Does + Women in Country Music

"An elite group has godlike control over our world and the majority of the decisions be made. I'm talking on a carrier now my podcast behind the influence. I'm having revealing personal and and even weird conversations with those who have unparalleled influence in our lives your superheroes some villains and those behind the scenes making it all possible influencers serves of this new and digital universe unmasked join me for behind the influence on apple podcasts or on the iheartradio APP or wherever you get your podcast. This'll be a split episode. We will talk to Sharona. Burgess and we'll talk about a lot of things. We'll talk about dancing with the stars this season. We'll talk about her finding out. She wasn't going to be on the show this season yeah we'll just kind of jump into that with her. which I wanted a way to beat I could've called older medial and been like talk about it but I just felt like a friend I would rather not chased the clicks and also I was a little shocked by it but ever theory to dude one of the reasons why she didn't get aspects well? We'll get to her and just a bit and also we'll talk to. Our friend is a program director in California and so people often wonder what in the world is a radio program or do and how come they're going to pick music and women and country music and what's so him in Studio we'll talk to our buddy. Brent who is from Bakersfield California runs a couple stations out there and so if you've ever wondered radio program director does that's. That's what this will be so I think I'm trying to think about this. PODCAST is about like if we were to stick in a tag it with the line I think it would be talking to creatives and about music basically what we do. We talked creative people and then we also talk about music because I was I was talking to great podcasts. Koskoff four things with Amy Brown. I said Hey nobody knows what your four things are. So what are they put him on the front of your your image. She did looks great because if somebody just girls through they. I don't know like what in the heck four things pictures on there now which we need to put my face on the on the logo too because otherwise it just a couple of words isn't really nobody goes. Oh I not not that it's even about me but it gives you something to remember and hold onto because I school through podcasts on Iheartradio and say Oh let me see what this is about and if it's just word on click it. It's like a cartoon graphic this call or like somebody. I'd be like Oh that's cool or like. Sometimes people just address like their shows about so. I was talking to amy check that out four things with Amy Brown. I'm going to go ahead and get off of here. He's about to go see Elaine and shoots him dancing with the stars stuff but Sharona Burgess and then from Brent who works in Bakersville programs to radio stations and what kind of catch up on the program director does Hey how you doing good. Are you in the bathroom. Always ooh I hang on. I can take your speaker got better a little better. Okay what's happened to doing not. I am currently apparently buried in acting homework. What are you doing there. I've got a ten minute play. It's cold traces of memory and I'm one of the characters in it and she is very doc. It's about two women that meet on a highway uh-huh bye-bye runaways basically and she reveals throughout that she blew up the house and tied up a tree kids to watch the microwave while the CASTELLINA and it blew up collie dog family move out the family play. Bring everyone bring all the kids. I think it's really made for kids. That's my opinion. You know well listen. You and I have talked to bed since the I mean a couple times actually since you didn't get broadening with stars and I definitely didn't WanNa hit you up right after it because for me. I was like what I know for you. You're like what and I wanted to give you a little a little breath on it but then I saw you on instagram actually at the show the other night and I was like and I think that's such a healthy and now it's such a healthy thing I think for for you to be able to talk about because you're just going out to see your friends. So there is no bad I bought. I guess between you and the show No. There isn't a there's definitely my bad blood a lifeguard. I you know someone made a decision that they didn't want me to be a part of this season then and that's okay in our. I've had an incredible eight and a half million nine knees with the show and they're trying new things and they're really trying to revamp. He's anti and get it back so it can last another ten years and I'm on board with that. Goal serve me. There is what much of that was very sad and not be there. 'cause I love my job. I you know I don't take it personally and of course I'll go watch because these guys that available the cost and even the crew. Everybody is like family to me. After the last night you are going back. There is still going home. and I really love going to watch a week one and week three. That's cool because I sent you a note and I was like. Are you working and you're like no. I'm just watching and I was like Oh. That's so cool that you're just there because I know it was uncut cutoff for me that you didn't get brought back so I know initially the shock for you had to be like what the like because I think we all expected you to come back because you didn't know you weren't coming back. Oh Yeah I had no. I had no idea I didn't even have a hint from them but in in myself there was never a doubt in my mind but right become back I you know obviously we won last season and being the reigning champion wouldn't think they are going to bring you back little so it's been a been with them for so long. Indefinitely feel like part of that family part of a stable I guess you would say with the sharp and we were all getting text messages about Gm May rehearsals and the things coming up and whatnot so they was no feeling of. I might not have this. GIG Like I might not be coming back accusation so when it happened and I got the phone call it was it was a shock. I was driving on the freeway and had to pull over because I couldn't. I just couldn't process what was happening on this phone. Call that so much of a shock it was and the executive producer Andrew was the one that told me and he said that they just weren't I would've putnam me up this season and that they love me and I'm a part of the dancing with the South's family and the cost will be interchangeable now season to season. This'll soapy happening quite a lot and he hopes it you know next season to be different and whatnot so it was an interesting phone. Call Andrew is a new. AP EP. He's this is his season is taking photos and slowly and he's got. He's dreams an ID for it. So you know the only way it's going to work because if everyone jumps I'm from board and and believed in his dream to you know my theory now is they knew that I would have been like everybody everybody load up on Charen. It doesn't matter who she has. I do feel like that was a part of it and I think there was almost because again way after the fact because you and I as we were dancing knew nothing about how the votes were. We just knew we weren't in the bottom two and every week we were both like. Oh boy here we go again and in that moment when they're calling out the bottoms were freaking out every time because they don't tell you they didn't tell me anything and I worked for. ABC See and they told me nothing and so when it was all over randomly wanted executive said Hey your vote differential was has the highest on the show that has ever been a history of the show did the differential between first second place. We had no idea and I think it's better. We didn't have an idea because we just we worked extremely hard hard just trying to survive by and I think that because of that that maybe they were going well if we have to break somebody I think gives should be shorted this season because bobby's and knucklehead and he'll just tell everybody to load up on sharp and I do think there's absolutely because I would have uh-huh you know. I would have been right there with you so now that we've had a breath. Do you think if they asked you back next season or three seasons from now you would go back next season possible it all depends on where I'm at with other things and what's going on in her. I have this exciting riding twelve months of being able to try and make some other stuff happened really dive into my acting dive back into those too hopeful shores that are heartbreaking. They make it to Broadway soon and I'll be back in Australia judging as well. I'm excited about the opportunities coming up in the things in front of me but if I am available and they want me he then absolutely I would love to have another season because for me what was Super Thad was that I didn't. I didn't know I may not ever have another season as an announcer long after nearly a decade you Kinda WanNa just if you know it's a loss you wanna save every moment and every single person that has been a part of that family in that vision with you for the last you know however many years and that's the one thing that I wish that I did get to which is also watch amazing scar on his show but yeah I mean I would never say no to it. If I was available to do it and we've I mutually wanted me to be on the shots so never say never what do you think and I do too. I love it too and until I went on and had no idea anything about it. Honestly I love it. I love the people when I went yeah well. I just love the people when I went back for the Premiere episode it. My favorite people are always the crew the hair the makeup like the the normal folks because that's like. I feel like I'm one of them and to go back and they were all like oh my goodness it was so fun for me because it's not the stars that I'm most like. It's like the people in their grinding and now day to day and even the all the camera guys. A lot of them came back and they were like dude. It's so good to see you you. You know some of the dancing experts weren't happy to see me because I'm not like them but all of you know the people that are in putting putting the time and it was so great like like I love that show and I love the changes that they've made the season. What do you think about that. I think they've made I think it's beautiful. I think that some of the the visuals that they've had so far have been really stunning and I think they've done a great job with it. I love that the judges are being hotter. You know there's more people little thing threes and fours and fives because semi that's at least giving it some way to are. You can't just be throwing out eight for week. One all the time because then what's really the the difference between an eight nine and a ten once everyone starts improving and so I think it's actually great I think Lynn getting much more technical and they're really hot on dense content which some people loving and some people and I think that the rule of having to have more true to the dense content within the choreography has some people feeling like it's a little bit lacklustre like it has lessened disaster but also at the same time more of that will come throughout the season so oh I think it's GONNA be hot people to make their full assessment of how they feel about the changes until you get to the end and you see how they letting it build and grow but I think doing a great job you know like I said I want. They started lost another ten years. I want to be on television and so I hope that fans are responding to it. positively. I wouldn't mind all the scores are low but even the highest scores aren't that high so it's all the same right right now. The only difference is you can actually build up later and get better right because nobody's gonNA. You get rarely getting excited. We will when we go to night once or twice until the very end show exactly. It's like you want to feel that even as a competitor you want to feel that growth like Oh my God you go to you go to five live and then you work your way up when you finally see that then you are in that ten mealy Mexico's out which I think we actually hit the ground when we got very picture of sitting on the ground holy crap but at that point I do think that between you designing just a really fantastic final dance and them just going we throw our hands up like we tried to everything we can and to make people not vote for Bobby and they're still gonNA vote for Bobby. Insurance like I feel like it was a mixture of both of those when we got our tens or just like all right tap out we give up correct creation of a dance dance and I don't know what else we can do and well done you guys probably it probably was. I think they did try everything to you. You know have us not win but at the end of the day you know you can't help what the fans wanted. and I'm not saying they had something out for us that they tried to give everyone. NFL shot in knowing that our voting was so high but there was nothing that they could do and they do not something. That's also very different about this season that I'm not entirely show. Everybody hour's brought got the dances no longer get today to design the dances. I didn't know that every week you know how I was in the current process but still all the set the colors the costumes everything built with the team right now the dances just get creative concepts given to them. They get what they wearing wearing. What they said is what the song is what they're everything so they don't have that creative day in these pieces anymore they may do when it gets to the freestyle. I dog because then it becomes the jam but Week to week. It's no longer Lindy's creativity. It's no longer fouls creativity. It's old on full them by the new creative directed actively working on the sharp and so I actually find that really interesting to and I have no real opinion on it because I'm not in it but if I was I would struggle to give up that creative are that creativity in that hot of the dance to someone else because to me dance is not just you know if you're giving me full peace. He's that's already done and then asking me. Just put step students like giving me your biography and asking me to write your last chapter but I know nothing about you. You know for me that just seems disjointed disjointed but you know it seems like everyone's still creating great content anyway and maybe it helped everything work smooth behind the saint. I talked to Lauren Elena a lot and I tell her because when you mentioned that I think when we had breakfast yeah people aren't as in control as they were the past seasons but I would tell Lauren even Edison you have like two spots for you to act for Lauren for you to actually take charge and that is in that live spot after the dance like yes so much of what we did like a big part was was in that spot thought because they can't control. You can't control you. That's the one time yeah they can't edit your package and they can. They can edit the package and make anything they want. They can make you can do the dance you can do. Woah but in that one spot where they talk to you you can do whatever you want and that's when you have to be you and when America and that was the advice that I would give her as the person that's not the dancer as a person that went out there and we're just trying to connect with humans and you know I find it interesting. This season that Lawrence never danced before and I don't know why Hannah keeps acting like she's never danced. She danced for fourteen years and she had ballet for fourteen years. That's dance absolutely danced before heading at a high level cool yeah and she dialed that to me that people try and cover that up like you can't see it. You know what I mean. Even she's like well. It's not the same yeah but it's something thing and I like Hannah. Just fine. I know are a little bit but it's you know when they're ongoing. She never danced like this before yeah but you've danced and so don't don't even go down that. You don't have to say you dance or say. You didn't dance. You'll have to talk about. You're talking about something else but don't play the game of never danced you did in your your beauty pageants. That was your was your. What are you talking about you dance but I love James Vanderbeek and I love the him and Emma together because I love Emma is just the best she she's just the kindest and then I love Kate flannery so good as she won't win really well but she's GonNa do better than people think she won't win but she'll do better than people think yeah I agree. I got a little love for her especially like on the floor the way he just there's something very lovely special about the way that she moved and she's just so entertaining pertaining at the same time that week one didn't she came out and did like. I honestly just couldn't stop smiling while what she here. She's so such a phenomenal performer. The kill guy seems seems fake to me. He seems like he acting. He's an attorney always seems like he's acting like he's always connected to him either. You know what I mean I would. I would be on the same page diplomatic answer. I'm like I'm like fake and she's like well. You know I have a connected either yet at this point. That's a good answer. I like that good. I saw aw and let me do a little plug here for you where you got your your added on cameo so people can get a video message from you. Yesterday can actually just got on it a couple holy days ago. I don't even know how I didn't know about this but I'm actually really excited to be on that so I can any and everybody wants a message or answer a question question or a little bit. They shout out. I'm getting a lot of ours anniversary one which is really sweet. it's a very cool way to be connected to people and and give a little something you know yeah. I think that's cool and so just go to cameo and look up Sharona and get her to send you a video message and she'll say basically whatever you want. I've used cameo to give you older than me messages before I'm not GonNa pay you. I just text you. It'd be like hey send me a free one but I've I've done that with you from the office before. I'm like send me a cameo so go and look for Sharma there on cameo this season as insurance. If you got to pick a winner a winner this season who do you have I would love to say James and Emma Win it but I think it may come down between he and Hannah and I I honestly can't decide right now. WHO IS GOING TO BE I think that Hannah Hannah has a big fan base. I think she's talented and I think people are like you and I hope that Herron Allen get together. I hope that at all like no no. You're not saying announce the when they hoped we want yes yes yes. That's what I mean. I don't know I don't have that go ahead go Kenyon on whether they do and but I think that a lot of people would love to see that especially the Bachelorette and her on trustees and then how that entered. I think they'd love love to have the fairytale happen. He so who knows if that's what people are GonNa vote for and be sort of captivated by but I do think that James is the best answering the competition. I think he's lovable and I think he's got a fantastic potlucks or be. It's GONNA come down to the two of them but if I had to pick one I started to James. You know I you uh I'm GONNA leave Lauren out of this. Although I think she'll make the finals. I think that she's her. likeability is going to really come through and as long as you're on on the bottom two. They can't kick you out right. They have the new wrinkle. They've added is you're in the bottom two they get to pick who goes home and as long as you're on the bottom through the bottom two you have a great. Fan Van Vo in a pretty good score. You're rocking it so she's never danced before. If just hand has got to change hot Hollywood hand and now she's got Demi Levato auto out there. She's got she's all Hollywood with all over. China needs to go back to being Alabama. Hannah or America's GonNa go. You know she's changed. She's not for me me because that's a big part of it. Yeah I see that you don't want to see someone change because Hollywood I totally get that in banner because actually getting nicer as it goes you fall more and more in I love with them and where you go. Oh He's a fancy schmancy Ellie. Act or the more he talks you go await. This is a nice guy so you really. I'm picking and if the final four people I'm going Vanderbeek. Hannah Lauren and I'M GONNA I'M GONNA I'M GONNA put Kate in there because because I just heard likeability and that's it who's your fourth or third and fourth. Oh definitely Lauren. I think she's so lovable and I think the more and more people get to see her in her special and she's honestly talented. She's really really well. She was relatively self and how hard it is to lead but when not on before Kep fighting and I think she's doing a great job who would I say is going to be the fourth spot the dancer I. I don't think the dancer is that likable with with with Sasha. I think she's just a fine dancer. She's a pop star but she's not even the best dancer on the show and she's not the most likable. Although she is is kind of likeable I I can't put her fourth would you. I think she's likable and I think she's great but I think there are other personalities or more memorable ripple. If that makes sense I think she's she's lovely and I really enjoyed her rumble last week but there are the people that while they may not be as gifted hurt to at dancing that more memorable for some reason and unless she can break through that and find a way to be you oh you for people to connect to her move through the screen than I. I think that we might see her girlfriend before the final unfortunately because she's tweeting talented but yeah. I could actually agree with Kate again. I remember her every week and I love watching her and challenge. It and I think this Janet great job. I think pastas doing really good jump this season. We might have the same top four well there. She is Shawna Shawna Barges Dot com but I WANNA put in and say get a message from Sharma on cameo and she'll probably dogs and some of the video. You should probably be in like yoga clothes. She's exposing her midriff. It's all the time she's rocking it. Well listen I will I'm going to be back out there a lot lot obviously once we're we're shooting all of our stuff all over the country right now but when it's La time in Utah again absolutely all right time with you.

I five sleepnumber stores nationwide by one nearest you at sleepnumber dot com slash bones something we do here on this podcast sometimes because we'll get kind of behind the scenes of music for sure with songwriters but even with radio and Brent Michaels here who is the program director of a couple of stations in Bakersfield. Yes so you're stations. Are What we've got the bull 97.3. That's a moron show you're on and then also K. jozy which has been a fifty year plus station in Bakersfield Bakersfield. And how long have you been a radio program director only about three and a half years yeah. I thought you've been doing it for a lot which was compliment by the way thank you ed how you run those stations over there. I thought you been doing it for a long time. I've been in radio for about twenty years and just kind of worked. My way up at the station started the doing part time on the weekends and work my way. All the way up started doing promotions. Still there was a fulltime on air shift and became music director and now program director of two stations wild wild. That's pretty cool. I didn't know that elevation happened in the last few years so I guess when you became program does that when we when we went on a Bakersville yet right right after I became program Director Casey had been there for fifty years but we decided to because countries now so diverse to start a station that really focused on the newer brand of country right be more aggressive introducing new artists and you and your brand or so synonymous synonymous with that that we thought it was a great fit so I think a lot of our listeners wonder and he you know what even I do too won. The World of program director does because for me I I was. I'm going to get on the radio and I'm going to be entertaining and I don't want to do the hard stuff. Which is what you do? I don't want to have to make decisions on how how May I don't want you to management stuff. which is what you do like? You're mostly behind the scenes. You're on the air to I am yes but you're mostly behind the scenes so as a program program director of two radio stations you wake up in the morning what time so I get up every morning little before five. Why in the world would you wake up that early early. If you don't have to do a morning show well to get to the gym so that way I can help my wife. Get Kids and everything ready for school and then I'm at the office a little after seven in the morning and then what do you do when and you get to the office as a radio station program to stations like what's the first thing you check on so the first thing I do is I can take a look at our music logs for the day so for people that don't realize radio stations have all their music planned out and the program director just is ultimately in charge of everything that comes out of the speaker so we make the music decisions decisions and from there we just kind of make sure the music gets played the bigger songs songs people. Tell us they wanna hear more often. You know songs that are just getting started kind of putting that out there in certain times and places and so the first thing I do when I get there is going to go through the music for the day and make sure we're all set now you you bring up an interesting thing that you get there and you look at the songs so I guess. Is there a day of the week where you kind of decide what that week's playlist ish. She is GonNa look like for us. It's on Thursdays and so our station also has what's called music director so he also takes listen to all the different songs songs that are out there and you know I just feel one person has so much bias you know. I don't know that one person should be making the music decisions in my opinion opinion for a station because everybody likes different things and everybody has different wants and sure so together we sit down every Thursday and we take a look at all all the different songs that we can choose from for that week and we decide okay based based on the number of songs that were playing that our current songs at any given time okay. We've got one spot to put in a new song this week or two songs and so we'll go through that and we'll go through the research that people are are telling us. We have a mechanism for people to go online line until songs. They liked and what they're getting tired of. We go through all that information. We look at which streaming what's being consumed in the market. You know what people are watching on Youtube. What people people are buying and that's how we make choices so on a Thursday American rewinding now on a Thursday you go in and decide what the place is. GonNa look like now. If I'm right because for a brief amount of time I I was a music director and hated it because I was not for me. I didn't want to get on a computer and schedule things. I didn't WanNa talk to record labels. I just wanted to be funny so on Thursday. You meet and go these are the songs that are going to be put in for next week and then is there still kind of like a formula in a program where you go are most important songs or these six seventy powers. Would you have for us we have seven on KABC and six on the bull so those six big songs are programmed to play every X. amount of time so boom. There are no spots yep so you're not going scheduling every song every day. It's kind of a program based on the songs you pick each week. Yes we have a computer program and most radio stations. Do have a computer program. You SORTA tell it. K- These are the most popular songs these are the songs that are after that these are older songs that are still really popular and you come up what they call a clock clock which is sort of all the different songs and where they go so two or three songs that maybe people aren't as familiar with yet. Don't play all in a row spread. 'em Out to get him them out so you'll do the big big medium want people to know that a big one again right. They don't hear two songs in what what was that right. Okay so you go into in the morning now. We're going to go back to your day of yes. You've already got your songs pick for the week so now you're you're. You're looking at the law to make sure the computer didn't watch it right and didn't programs with an accidental into a wrong spot the right. How long does that take about fifteen to twenty minutes. I'll just kind of really scan through some of that's done the day before but just make sure you know. We're not having any technical problems or anything. I want to check in and then from there. It's onto the mailbox so when you're in or are you monitoring your shows because you have you know you have a legendary. Show accusees love those guys by the way they're they're always so nice to be. One of them is then there's US obviously. Are you like monitoring those back and forth major issues. I do as I drive into work. I flip back and forth between both both radio shows and I usually listen to some other shows that are in the market the city just just to hear what what they're doing to so. You're in you've major the logs cool. ooh. You've listened to the shows. You know fires then. What's what's an program directors e mailbox so you have lots of different things. you know there are three main parts parts to a radio station. I always tell people there's programming and that's kind of everything he sort of here coming out musically and the DJ's and that kind of thing and even the big voice guy that's like I uses e right and then there's promotions and promotions kind of everything you see so that's the website social. Media contests are social media parents now yeah. I've been out of that game. I didn't realize that was part of promotions cool for us. It is and with that said all the different print personalities. They're on both stations. they all have social kind of commitments requirements that we have them do just just so people can kind of see what goes on behind the scenes these are what goes on in their life and all that stuff but so there's promotions and then their sales sales is can ed how radio stations make their money is the commercials it's the most. Oh survival and most annoying part of my job and in that order by the way most vital part of the job I ever learned to embrace sales and at the same time to go okay these are boundaries and this where I can do the best for you and it's a balance for me. It's a big balance. like what can I do. How much can I do without really jeopardizing ising the show because smartly a lot of clients like I want everything automated mode much you can give me and I gotta go oh well. I can't give you everything but why don't we do this kind of promotion so it's a balancing act for me. I I don't know what it would be like for a program director. 'cause you have to manage all the sales all the day right. It's a lot of the same thing we want to do. Things that our customers our clients people advertising with the radio station feel they can partner with Assam but at the same time you don't want to do things that will alienate the audience or that will make the audience tune out so it is a balance of trying to find things that you know sound good for the person advertising but also don't drive people away from listening that just don't want to hear boring commercials. You know we had a issue today. Did you hear about the one today. Mike let the commercials the podcast. Oh Yeah I heard about that and can you hear my okay so you know I'm very much to just can't be off brand with our show like if it's not something that we would. We don't have to use. I have to either use it or for me to talk about it. Personally I have to use it or someone close to me has to use it or I will voice on it but that doesn't mean the show can't run things sure but there is not cigarette thing on our podcast yeah and we can do target analytic lyrics now apparently where on the digital part if they know your Outta I'd say a seventy year old dude from the Midwest they can target you with specific ads much like instagram does it's crazy and so one of Adam's running was an e cigarette at and I had to reach out and go. This is our brand like nobody on this show smokes. I don't feel like that's for me. That's a good look for for the show and that was a tough decision because whomever that company has paying money for that and I never want to say no to money right because our job we're brought in Dan so that the bottom line looks good for the people that are paying us and and my career have only had to like reach out about two or three times and ever go. I don't like a porn in shop at one point. It was like I don't know how I feel about. Xxx Ding dongs you know being on the show and I don't know what they're going to do you want to have. I don't even know what I was getting a lot of complaints about it. Did you hear the commercial I never heard it. I just saw people talking about it. Who like people on text line calling hauling off though I saw an email about it and you did. Oh good were they like bobby's right over. There like stupid bobby's complaining again no they weren't like that. No what were they. I I mean I saw initially like when they were saying what was running. what I saw. I didn't think anybody would based on what you said. Mike and I can see my. He's looks like a bumblebee today. He's he's in a yellow shirt with black stripes any walked up and I was like he's like what what what are you doing. Look Bumblebee Dude you these rocket it though it looks good and he's stripes at all because he wore a black black and white striped shirt and he was like people were like like the Hamburglar de compared to something else cartoon characters. There's something I'm a Bumblebee. You look like a bumble bee a good like a mobile. Thank you so okay yet your emails. You're dealing with sales and programming. What does that a day you wake up. How many work when you go in what are you looking at probably over the course of a whole day I probably get one hundred to one hundred and fifty emails really yeah. Do you ever check out and go. These are my hours hours or I'm not going to take me email. I really should but I don't. It's hard to because that's the thing is even with me. I go you know what I wanted to check out for a bit but the the problem is if you check out for a bit and we should by the way we should we should we should set but when we come back to it and there's like seven hundred never catch up well and I think part of it is and you're you're obviously a big part of the industry. Our industry's a twenty four seven industry radio station doesn't shut off. It's always going on. It's always happening and so you always kind of have to stay on top of things. Do you ever get with your your personalities and sit down and go okay. Let's listen to your show and play it back and go this what you can do better. This is what's good. Do you do though still yeah we do. They're called air checks and so what that is you sit down as you said with the personality and you listen to certain segments of the show and talk about different ways you can improve or what was great or you know. Maybe what miss the mark a little bit what we can do better next time but you know. I remember as I was. Kinda getting started in radio radio. There were program directors with me would give good advice about what's what's going on in fact my first program director now works on our staff and so it's crazy is it. He's the person that gave me my first shot and now he's on our air staff. Are you as boss. I am who turn tables turned and I'll be honest. I thought that was GONNA be awkward. I but he's he's great yeah. Yeah what's his name. His name is Ken Ken Macleod. We've been friends for a long time so can't shut out Ken so oh you you you play a recording back which used to be on cassette tapes now. It's all digital yep. You can be like all right. This is great this do this. Little better doesn't even do that to use and you're on the air no but I wish I had that as a resource I do I. I've never had a problem with trying to get better. I I believe that in everything I dare check the crap out of you so you didn't put val. I'm the worst speaker in the like me on radio as a broadcaster not very good. I mean on the radio as a human good right but I will be the worst person to go. You know as you could do better by saying I say nothing right no words right. No I don't sorry are you that pull up pull up. Politically Dingo through mine are not mine but you have great ideas. it depends on what you describes great trouble. Sometimes okay so you work at the personalities. What's kind of the second half of the day about. Is the radio program director. You know it's interesting because I've I've had this conversation with a couple of people lately the music and the radio and on air shift I think is about a third of what a program director does and then the other two-thirds is the other managerial stuff that we've sort of talked about so working with the sales department to help people's commercials and promotions get on in green-lighting some things sending some of the things he's back to work on a little more working with our promotions department to make sure we have the right contests and were marketing the station in the right way just dealing with you know even internal office politics when people worked together a lot in close confines. Sometimes you know disagreements come up and listening and hearing what people have to say and trying to get yeah people on the same page and really just just trying to do everything to market the radio station and and just make the radio station the best it can be. Hey Mike like how much more time do we have a brand before we in this part of the interview. You got like another five cool. I got I got some questions. I'm trying to decide what I want to what I want to get into it with them with and not in a bad way but I'll do this. Let's do the power rankings right. Now of contemporary country artists say I was reading a website and they they did like college coach football. It's country now which is a new country music blog and they've cranked like the top twenty five country arts that was pretty bold them to do to rank them and so oh much like college football clemson's one. Alabama's to whenever we're doing this podcast who knows what it'll be by the people here this. Where would you rank. Thank as number one right now and let's do this at the same time. We'll both say it but let's just say who were going to say at the same time so we're not affecting each other's judgement. Okay okay so I'll go one two three and then and we'll say okay okay number one one two three okay solid the to look because you look Brian. Yep Go ahead and and I would say luke combs number two. I now say Look Brian Number one number two yeah. They're both right there. Luke homes a new number one he just he doesn't miss he hasn't missed yet any need like a rocket and I haven't seen some in my time here. I haven't seen someone blow up this fast period. He's the biggest I agree he right luke. Bryan is the universally versus big. Thank you at home. Okay good so we're going to want to not go to in one good now. Would you have what have Muslim number three number three. We have right now. Say Jason Aldean solid four four. I will say Blake Shelton and Blake's in California a lot yeah. We don't often hear number five and five right now. I'll say Carrie Underwood people love Carrie underwood carry over in right now carry over Merrin. I think so right now. Xilai no disrespect Aaron marriage. I liked ranking them. No because there's no disrespect anyone people fall no slots yep I look at you. I like that you're making decisions. Mike anything you want to ask him. He'll tell you Brent break came out to watch me dance. Well the store crowd out there. We hung out. I sat next to Mike. Oh you guys it. I thank you for having us by the way because you're in California. Which is my point. You are two hours behind. What is it like running our show show when it's not exactly live. They're hearing it when we do at seven. You're hearing on seventy two hours back. Yes is that ever an issue. You know to some degree degree. I think it works in our favor. We tried or I do because I get up so early site. Get up and once I get to the gym before we start the workout. I'll scroll through social media. It's already so you you guys are doing on the show so we can kind of pre promote you know hey they're doing the draft on this today. Those kind of things are are so and so's making an appearance on the the show today so it works to our advantage the one part. I think maybe is a disadvantage and you know maybe sometimes it happens later in the morning. I don't hear it. It's harder for maybe a California listener to call in and get on the shelf -solutely but I do texting and and other social media avenues there's ways they can interact with the show but that's probably if anything the only drawback. That's a good one. That's a good point to make and that's why we don't do. National contests recall in because your people don't have a chance gotcha in mount people don't have a chance like a fair chance because we're hearing in an hour or two hours later right so and then another but I think a benefit to of you guys being behind is when I come in and do every morning and cut like before the show even started. You've got got all my stuff yeah. You know it's like you got before anybody does according to the time of the end on this there is as you know and as you are one of the guys really working to combat the issue with females on the radio and country music. Where do you see it now and where it's going uh-huh open ended question yup. I don't WanNA paint a corner. Go ahead. No I think two things one. I think the comment that to me gets made a lot about this. Issue is women. Don't want to hear women and I. I think that's false. I think women do want to hear women. I think in certain occasions we have factual actual data that shows they wanna hear certain songs by male artists more at a certain time but I think it's also the responsibility of people that put music on radio stations for for people to hear and discover. I think it's important for radio to still be a place where you can find an artist for the first time and there's more ways to listen to music now than ever between streaming services and watching videos on Youtube and the radio that if we want to keep up with everything else that's out there we have to be able to break artists artists and we have to be able to expose artists and so I do feel that as a radio programmer you have a responsibility to get artists that you believe in out to your audience and and sometimes going to work in and maybe sometimes you'll love song and and your audience doesn't get to it or love it as much as you do but I think it's important important that we do it and so I can't speak for every radio program director but we make an effort to try to get female artists on the radio and just even lately I mean I think Ingrid Andrews is great. I think Ashley McBride is Great. you know on the bull. We've highlighted all of the women that you've put onto your class of twenty nineteen. It's just you know we do have a responsibility to get female artists exposure her and still make sure people are hearing the songs from the artist. You know that are male that are doing really well too. I I think there's a way to do it. All he has a great voice how Mike he does he's talking and I know what he's talking about stuff that is cool and relevant alike it and I'm agreeing with it but I just started drifting away going into God who had a voice like that. I've never heard the MIC like pick up so it's like a broadcaster should sound like not me like a prepubescent. Fourteen year old has got like three pubic hair see sometimes I feel I sound to announce hurry see I think there's there's. There's got to be middle ground well well. It ain't us Bret michaels.

What happens our my listeners especially on this podcast like to know you know what's like a song meeting like what you guys get a room and go what we like.

Everybody knows a couple but they don't know them all and I. I think that's part of the reason they do it to. There is a lesson radio.
