Martin Luther King Junior said that the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends towards justice we all know that it only bends towards justice because of individuals willing to put themselves on the front lines of the Civil Rights Struggle Laura Sweater who turned ninety on April tenth. Twenty twenty has never left the front lines. She's a force of nature that has transformed the lives of those who grow and harvest the food that sustains each of us creating the phone welcome movement with Cesar Chavez she is the mother of the modern labor movement also came up with the idea that consumers have the power to shape and push industries like great growers to improve farm worker conditions. She then that. Labor negotiations to memorialize will can benefit in the nation's first of their kind collective bargaining agreements. Deloris is a fearless and incredibly effective advocate legislation. She championed the landmark building nineteen sixty to allow people to take the California driver's examination in Spanish. And and she's never stopped last year. She helped enact leads to create California's Fund for safe and affordable drinking water Quetta who describes himself as a born again feminists consciously incorporated feminism into her fight for workers rights and push Gloria Steinem and the one thousand nine hundred sixty s to expand the feminist movement to include issues of race thereby helping make feminism and Movement for all women not just white women from the beginning.

I think it's over a thousand oil workers that have been laid off. One of the company is completely. Shut Down Lager. People EARN EMPLOYEES CIVILLY TRAGIC. But we know at the same time. And that's why we see that our air is a little cleaner a usually here in Kern county. We are women the worst areas of pollution for air pollution in the country. And we know that that air pollution really affects not only the physical health especially if the children but also the mental health of children. Here we have Not only to freeways that can make your highway ninety nine and highway five of but then we have all of the pollution that comes from the Agricultural Industry Caesar industrial growers that have not really converted their tractors They're so easy in a lot of diesel. It's a big struggle and when you try to bring to the attention they consider this to be an attack instead of thinking. Okay what do we have to do to make them more economically friendly jobs for people so these are the challenges that we have ahead of us as we try to convert all of the fossil fuel industries into industries. That are more friendly for everybody. So deloris in the late fifties and sixties when you have founding the farmworker movement and and really bringing those issues to the full when whether environmental issues like drinking water and air quality and pesticide runoff. How did those issues fest? Come to your attention right at the beginning at the very beginning you know. I grew up in Stockton California which is also like a cultural area. I was in a field in. I see this what I thought was fog rolling in but I thought how can you have fog in the summertime? Well it was a pesticide residue. That was rolling in. That was one of the first things that farmer who's complained about about the effects of Pesticides. And so we had so many cases of pesticide poisonings. Sometimes Terry crews like thirty. Forty people would been poisoned at the same time. How can this happen? Slow regard for the health farm workers so one of the first contracts that I signed a day. Employers tell exactly how many pesticides they were going to spray and where they were going to be spread out and then we passed legislation to make sure that the appeals are posted of when they sprayed some of these dangerous pesticides and then we work very very hard to get some of these dangerous pesticides restricted and banned forever and unfortunately a lot of pesticides we had because like Didi they were then shipped to Mexico to Latin American countries. And so here but we had all of these farmers could children that. Were being bored with these horrible deformities being born without arms without legs so horrific here you had children in Mexico and parts of Latin America.

without saying we have to restore flows in rivers and the bay delta I think everybody from wherever you are in the on the spectrum of of water stakeholders agrees on that what we need is scientific monitoring and scientific research that is transparent and then informs our management which has to be adaptive we can't lock ourselves in these decade old management decisions and and manage through

"As you mentioned Owens is of course the guy and he's also a country Music Hall of Famer as its Haggar. How rooted in Bakersfield is Merle haggard music as well? We'll Merle haggard is one of the few people who was actually born in Bakersfield acres field. A lot of these other folks who were creating what we now call the Bakersfield sound. We're coming their children from places like Texas Arkansas Oklahoma bucks mom and dad had migrated out to California from Oklahoma but he was born there and he was actually raised in a train car that his father converted into a small house for their family. So Monroe was a true son of Bakersfield. He grew up in that environment. And you know in addition to Buck Owens Merle haggard is. He's the other are pillar that those are the twin pillars of the Bakersfield sound and Very different in a Lotta ways. You know they. They worked with a lot of the same musicians they had similar. Sounds at times But where buck was really all about that upbeat fun Kinda music. Moral was called the post the common man and he wrote at the common man he wrote some really insightful full and in thoughtful reflective kind of songs about the migrant experience in California and about heartbreak and you know he just was one of those rare people who was gifted as a true musical poet. And I put him up there with Bob Dylan or or Woody Guthrie you know the icons of of American can songwriting. Let's hear what you're talking about here with MIRA. Hi Gertz California cottonfields mm-hmm Labor camps bill with worried man with broken dreams. A means as well this daddy ever came he. Can you talk a little bit about the influence of Bakersfield on other places on the world you talked about how radio came into play and how these two pillars really influenced other artists but give us a sense of how that sound traveled yet. It's funny because I think today People who may be are not really early into country music but they just kind of have an idea maybe of what country music is. They're probably more apt to be thinking of Bakersfield than they are to be thinking of The stuff that's coming out of Nashville Bakersfield that Real honky-tonk Twangy Electric Guitars Pedal Steel Guitar. You know and I think if people just have a rudimentary understanding understanding of what is country music. That's kind of what they think about And so oddly. Enough Bakersfield influenced the public concept of of what country. Music is Almost more than any other strain of country music's history and Ken Burns recently. Did this fantastic country music documentary and really shown a spotlight on all of the various roots and branches that make up country music's complex story But Bakersfield is so important in that And it really I think set what Buck Owens and Merle haggard did was take that music from a local musical scene introduced it to the world in a way that people really just latched onto and it had reverberations that we continue to hear in modern country music. Today this is very fascinating. I can't wait to listen to your the entire box set which I can't carry on a plane. It's kind of bit pounds. I believe it is eight pounds bounds but beautiful artwork and and such a rich history. A booklet two hundred and twenty four pages right. That's right. That is a book in itself. thank you.

"Who were pioneers of the Bakersfield sound really adopted that is the story of their own family and said you know that was really an accurate thing and so these folks move from places like Oklahoma Arkansas Texas and they came out to California and they preserve their traditions. They preserved you know the type of communities that they had back come and not included the music and these were hardworking people. They worked in oilfields. They worked picking crops at the end of the day. At the end of the week they wanted to blow off steam so dancing was going honky tonks and beer halls. And that's really the roots of why Bakersfield Music is a little bit more upbeat more drum oriented more danceable more more danceable. And this box set actually starts with field recordings of migrant workers. Can you point to a specific song on the set. That typifies the sound that you're talking talking about the nineteen forties. Yeah well it's interesting. Because the the recordings that were done at the camps and these were government camps where essentially the the the government had to step in because people are living in absolute squalor. WHO had gone out to California in search of a better life? The Roosevelt Administration stepped in. Set up these camps where people could live and the recordings that you hear from those camps were very much just a guitar kind of folk song oriented you see reflections of artists like Jimmy Rogers early country artists. But then as you get into the nineteen forties really get into this western swing thing. Where there's fiddles larger bands and Bob Wills and the Texas Texas playboys were really popular Western swing group that actually relocated to California in the nineteen forties and they played up and down the west coast Actually played in Bakersfield every week in nineteen forty-six And so there's some great recordings on the box. Set of Bob Wills and the Texas playboys live in a Bakersfield radio station and that really gives you a sense of.

He hit him in the head with a hammer and he slit his throat. The two boys then stuffed bucks body body into the trunk of bucks car. They drove the car back to bucks home and parked in the garage once they're they robbed the house and set it on fire later. Investigators found bucks body in the trunk of his burned out car. This was three days later. Robertson roy were soon arrested and one of the bits of evidence that they found in this whole scenario was they found a microwave oven from bucks home. They found this at roberts mother's place now. This case was a media sensation in sation for just about as many reasons as all of us could imagine robert would be tried as an adult it. It seemed that he was suspected in the unsolved murder of tommy tarver as well. This is because a hammer was also thought to have been used in that murder order now at trial robert and roy they turned on each other robert blamed roy stating that roy was the one that killed edwin buck roy's defense presented roberts involvement not only in the tommy tarver murder that was still unsolved as is but presented that as evidence that he was guilty of edwin bucks murder as well what came out of roberts trial rather than just the the facts surrounding the murder of edwin buck is why this case is famous right robert had all sorts of firsthand stories to tell l. about secret homosexuality including sex with minors and all of the corruption among the elite and bakersfield what he called called the lords of bakersfield all right. We need to provide some background information here. So until these cases aces broke in the late seventies early eighties bakersfield hs dirty little secret was just that it was a secret whispers and rumors existed as far back as the nineteen fifties of a loose network of powerful prominent white men who used their power and influence to protect each other and they harbored robert a dark secret they were into homosexual pedophilia in some cases and sex with very young men and others stories. He's about a so called white. Orchid society were told in town for years but no one could really substantiate these tales which were of a group of older male predators predators victimizing young men and boys so then in nineteen eighty five. There's a lawsuit by a former police officer which which alleged a network of corruption favoritism and cronyism in kern county a two thousand page exhibit to this lawsuit addressed a pedophile ring among the power elite using the term the lords of bakersfield the lawsuit was dismissed but the moniker stuck doc and the lord's legend has its name the two thousand three californian expose about the lords of bakersfield describes it it as formerly the province of conspiracy theorists except that now it seemed there was some truth to the legend. Yes seem like there's some some validity to these stories but this this was a really hard case to research. There's not a lot out there. Well i want to go ahead and throw this out there. <hes> for everybody listening and primarily for those that are already familiar with this case this is this is one of those weird situations where the tentacles of the story kind of spread far and wide and through a lot of different people a lot of different buildings organizations and such and it's also a story that may span not only a couple of decades but several decades i mean we have rumors going back to the nineteen fifties so so anybody listening to our presentation of this story. Please keep in mind that there may be things that that could be connected to this things that might not be connected to this. When you really look at this story and and you you realized that you have to present it in some form and in some light it gets difficult along the way to decide which portions to include and not to include the connections here are not not always clear so if in our review of this case if you believe that we miss something we may have just may just not have been presented us to have a clear connection or we had to pick and choose some of these to include into not include right so the ones that we're going to go over here are the ones that that i could find were for the most part believed or reported to be believed served as part of this whole legend of the lords of bakersfield so let's go back to that murder trial right. We have robert mistrial the the the the one that was involved in the first case that we talked about and now involved in being on trial for the murder of edwin buck he he testified to some bombshell information. That's clear now. Although he was under eighteen he claims that he slept with as many as one hundred in fifty men in both bakersfield and in los angeles he says many of these men were people of prominence in the community men who held positions the power and influence these men were politicians media judges attorneys county executives and more and robert took this a step further. He named names now one of the names that he named was edwin buck and tommy tarver of course. Here's where things get a little a little dicey year for go harry.

"Think but then it's it's a sticky situation. No pun intended with with the lord's baker fields because you wonder a couple of things one is it these people in power that are using this sick sick fetish of pedophilia to control each other and have one have something on top of each other right have something over the other person into can to be able to control them or blackmail them or is it just they're protecting these predators because of wealth or or their or their position of power so it becomes an i would lean to the latter two then that it some the giant group with some giant conspiracy if that makes any sense at all well no i think it does in only because because i've been you know waiting in these weird waters for for a while now and really trying to come up with an answer myself and thinking that you know the more i look at this case and the more that i dive into these different avenues that go off the main road of this case here that i think that i'm going to find my answer sir. Unfortunately i didn't like i said there's also other cases that that some consider to be connected to this and i may not have have gone down the right road off of off of the main road yet to find that but in the end my my general opinion is the look there was illegal activity going on. We can't deny that we also can't deny that there were plenty of murder's going on as well but there's there's also a situation where some people may just not have known everything that was going on or known what was at the rue of murder or at the rue of of this whole mess and therefore didn't take actions against any of that you know there is a certain. There's one thing to turn earn a blind eye to something and there's another to just be blind to it and not know what is going on and i think in this situation listen. i think i've walked down that path enough where i think i gotta try to to give this. Some kind of conclusion say we're good. Stop here okay so he's actually by the hat look it's it's very difficult with so many characters misdeeds invariables to really figure figure out and state what was really going on in bakersfield for all these years was there in fact an underground network hiding in the shadows and pulling strings wchs and where these murders many of them still unsolved connected to the legend of the lords of bakersfield from where i sit after reviewing this this whole mess <hes> i see a name that is repeated throughout this story and a general theme that seems to follow him. This is robert mistrial grell by his own admission and others he had a horrible childhood. He was selling himself at a young age trading sexual favors to men for money drugs in anything else to get him by right and while of course i find the actions and behaviors of the men who chose to employ him as illegal illegal immoral and frankly disgusting. It's very tricky for me to go as far to call those specific situations abuse. I understand he. He is a child and not of legal age but to me it's somewhat appears that robert was able to end this sex for hire relationship at any time with these men and in fact did so when with the help of another brutally murdered and robbed one of these men and could be suspected in another case as well so this story i just i mean it's just full chock full of victims and a lot of predators robert just might fit into both of those categories. I'm not certain as for glenn fits the second murder that we discuss. I have to wonder if he is the outlier lier in the story. Was this like a budding dean. Coral situation or is it as simple as wants. His wife passed and left left him alone. We have sick man that turned his home into a playground for teenagers filled with alcohol and they simply simply did not prosecute because they lacked the ability to do so right that there wasn't something to cover this up. They just didn't have the ability to prosecute a q. Him and therefore did not bring those charges forward and had it's not died be suicide or be it murder who's to say that they wouldn't have drug him into court at some point four daynuss murder eventually i also want to state that the double homicide committed by william tyack who planned murdered and then bragged about doing so just because two gay men were his neighbors that today likely would be prosecuted as a hate crime time and it's very difficult to figure out if those crimes had nothing to do with the quote lords of bakersfield old or if the lack of proper punishment what should have been a death penalty case very likely does have something to do with it. You know what i mean. It's it's tough to figure out if the lord's bakersfield are at work and some of these situations or if it's just someone else interfering with justice for unknown reasons. That's what i do think that we have is in fact a network of men who frequented the same locations and search of similar entertainment. They live secret lives and desired the company of young men and or boys. I'll keep in mind something something very simple that we have to remind ourselves when we start to look into conspiracies conspiracy theories and these pedophile rings and all these people possibly sibley in cahoots with one another anytime you have a person or persons committing illegal acts you will have those same people covering it up. Uh whether it's they're covering it up for themselves or if they're helping someone else and that's where it gets very difficult to truly discern what is going on in this situation and in other situations that we look at is in fact. There's no doubt that there's a cover cover up. It's just to what extent is that cover up. How many people were involved is just one person. Is it a whole army right of predators that are out there. It's there's no doubt to me that most of these men very likely knew each other again they frequented the same locations they were in search of similar things you.
