"The album on which it appeared as well as some of his others are heralded in so many ways and no doubt about it Their country But believe it or not that record was number one for ten weeks on the R&B charts and no One for 5 weeks on the pop charts and it did not chart country That tells everything you need to know Ray Charles ultimately did short country in the 80s with a few things But he was recording country music from 1959 through the 80s and it wasn't until the 80s that he got any recognition for it with a Nashville or the country music annals but there I think Donna in Oakland wants to talk about Ray Charles I'm happy to do it So hello Donna Hi you were talking country earlier and suggesting some songs to a lister and I thought you had mentioned bunch of 60s people that now wait a minute Rachel's venturing into forbidden territory by his country And at the same time he lost a whole bunch of Ray Charles fans and did not pick up a whole bunch of country fans for very long time But he was one of the first people to venture to cross that gap but there were others to follow him later on Charlie Pride Well that's a whole different story Charlie Pride was a country act He didn't cross But he but the deal with Ray Charles and in fact that song from her 62 which was so big on the pop charts came from modern sounds in country and western music and there was a volume one in a volume two and 1962 on ABC He'd actually been recording country from 59 on but it was just ignored throughout the country community and ignored in Nashville So he wasn't the only one to do it Tommy Edwards was famous for it Some of the Tommy Edward stuff was just great and don't fence me in and I really don't want to know And so many other things that he did that were just wonderful But there was no room at the inn for these individuals And it wasn't A lot of people would make this make this an issue of color And that was secondary I'm not saying that wouldn't have been an issue but you don't have to get that far At the time country absolutely abhorred what would be considered popular or mainstream music Yet at the same time they lusted for that success because of how well it sold So it was a are in large part because of the use of different instruments Well that's part of it but there's a whole cultural thing You know I mentioned before When I was in Nashville I was Charlie Rich's promotion manager when we crossed him over and got him some really big hits And when he was named country entertainer of the year in 1974 and the female vocalist was living in John The country community went crazy And the dreaded Bill Anderson who I'm never liked he along with Barbara Mandrell and others formed the ace the academy of country entertainers and basically what they were saying is I like Charlie but he's not country and I always laughed at that because of course later you know you had Barbara Mandrell headlining in Las Vegas and I thought I like Barbara but she's not gantry In any event it was a cultural thing more than anything And I'll tell you where it got sad And that is that in the earlier days if you were a country star this was for life You know if you're kitty wells or if you're Ernest tubb you're going to be in the grand Ole opry until you die and you're going to be having albums and record contracts and all that And this really didn't change until last 30 or so years and the artists who were once you paid your dues and you were consented you were in a stage Right You were there forever Yes but what happened is that changed and it changed when some of these acts like Johnny Cash were still alive And they literally could not understand why suddenly they couldn't get a record contract And you know they said never happened before but it happened in their lifetime so that's the old don't wish too hard for all that crossover because ultimately it ended that caste system The other thing with Ray Charles especially was when you first started performing he took the gospel and the country music and the country companies and gospel of God will have and brought them on stage to do secular songs He ended up getting a whole bunch of people manage him Well to a degree but of course that amalgamation of country and R&B and of course you're adding rockabilly into this and what became rock and roll It was fairly common out Ray Charles before he had that you know that soulful approach to himself some of his earlier stuff on Atlantic like greenbacks I thought these were just tremendous little records and it was a very very different sound than you know hallelujah lover so which also was of course Atlantic Yeah so he went through a lot of different periods But the interesting thing like I say is that he finally charted country in the 80s but here he was with records that were number one for ten weeks that were as country as country could be and yet no AirPlay The country was on the country on country stations Southern not only southern country in general there was country throughout the country Chicago had a big country state Well back in the 50s and 60s yeah Yeah well of course you know later after the plow station WJ JD which is sort of a daytime or when they drop top 40 they went country for a while and then of course and 74 MA Q picked it up But yeah in terms of sales it was not a big selling market but I remember when I was working at epic bob lumen came into my office one day to go over sales figures And I'm showing them everything And he said in Boston Raleigh it says three three what And I said three copies bob And said well what about us today I don't know who bought the three to Titanic truth but the other thing is a lot of these locations were rack jobs So you'd see these totals from Dallas being huge and people say oh really popular now is no western merchandisers was an Amarillo and they racked most of the.

"Politan and Billy Cheryl entered the strings and all that stuff And then when Charlie Rich was entertainer of the year and crossed over it was really funny because while they always wanted the pop hits because of course that's where the money was The number one country album would sell 20,000 units and number one pop albums A million units but when they started to get that the old core country acts hated it They just resented the hell out of it And Bill Anderson who is a real jerk but anyway he started the academy of country entertainers in 1974 because he was just so aghast that Charlie Rich and that a living Newton John could win awards and it was funny Barbara Mandrell joined that organization and I had to laugh later when she was doing her glitzy Vegas shows while she was in 74 saying well I could live in Newton John but she isn't country And you know I'm looking at these Vegas shows and I'm thinking well I like Barbara Mandrell but she isn't going for it you know That was but you know the grand old opera he was always like that 'cause originally no drums and originally no electrified instruments I mean it's always been Sort of that way But where it is now is not even a shred of what it was I consider it to be male adult contemporary When you're looking for country oldies today don't play country oldies on one of those stations play classic rock because that's what the audience knows Yeah So yeah Well before rock and roll me well when rock and roll first started then there was the more collectible records rockabilly They're one thing There are a lot of you know I'm not a huge rockabilly fan but there is a whole genre of that and of course sun records in Memphis kind of spearheaded that on a national level But there's a rockabilly Hall of Fame and there's a number of acts that to this day are big on rockabilly but sure country and R&B both came together to form what was rock and roll Of course You know no doubt about it So Frank I will play your Macarthur park next Well thank you All right very much Sure It's great talking to you Likewise You call me again thanks Thank you Okay Okay all right You too So we'll get to that as a closing bumper Then we'll get to Rick and we'll get to Mike and Mount Pleasant and hopefully you too before it's all over If not again we got hockey tomorrow night and then we got me again on Thursday night including with Marianne one cows ski So that.

"Welcome Welcome. Welcome back to the show and just a few minutes we're going to talk to John Driskell. Hopkins. Dave is a huge fan. Uh, John Driskell Hopkins in the Zac Brown band is that Brown band playing this weekend and John Driskell Hopkins playing the night before at the Pace center in Parker, That is a nice little venue. You know, we have a lot of kind of smaller venues around town, The Arvada Center for the Arts, a spectacular the Lone Tree Center is a great place to see a show The pay centre in Parker's outstanding They don't hold very many people. So no matter where your tickets are, you're like right there. It's really, really nice. And they get some really good acts out. And John is one of those acts. So, Dave, I'm sure you're excited. Do you even know who's that? Can't wait. You know exactly how many Absolutely no plan. No idea. So joining us now is the bass player for the band. You've never heard of Dave that that Zac Brown band John Driskell Hopkins. Welcome back to the show, my friend. How's it going? It's going well, It's going well. But you know what's funny, John? I just want you to know and I want points for this and some grand scale. I knew that you were playing at the pay centre in Parker on Thursday. I no idea Zac Brown Band was playing this weekend like No clue. I follow you, buddy Fiddlers Green Friday and Senator Have you ever played the settlers before? Twice before. I love that venue, man, and some some people in Denver hate on it because they're like it's not as good as red rocks, and I'm like, but it's a great venue. The weather's always nice. Yeah, it's nice, you know? Yeah, so we love Red rocks, too, But we have to play white. We have to play four shows. To do the same numbers that we're going to do it. Fiddlers. Yeah, and and where? That's why we were doing Coors Field before because we could get 40,000 there. Um, but reverses a totally different experience, so we're super excited to be there as well. Like I said, I love that venue. I first time I went. I was like, this is awesome. Maybe it's because I'm from Florida, and it's too hot to sit outside. In an amphitheater there to actually watch the show. So this is a nice change to not have to play in the humidity. Uh, let me ask you a few questions because you've got a great album out. I listened to it after I set this interview up for the first time Lonesome High is the is the name of the new album. How How do you? How is the music that you work with? Was Zac Brown band. How is it different when you are just working on your own and kind of do in your own vibe like what is what are the two distinct differences there for you, or are they that distinct? Well, I mean, I think to the to the average listener. They might find a lot of similarities in them because we come from the same place musically. Um and I'm mostly responsible. My biggest contribution to Zach Brown Band is the vocal Harmony area. And you know I'm going to do that on my record, So it's It's very similar in that respect, but for me all the difference in a show of my own and a show of that ground band. Is that all of these songs are about my family and about my experience and and my personal life. And even even if some of that is intertwined in Zac Brown band, and a lot of it is, it's still a different different thing. When you're singing about Your own kids or your own, Uh, time with your grandmother or your own experience with your friends in college and that kind of thing, you know, so that part of it is always going to be used for me. I loved eight tracks and Daddy's Cadillac because I got to tell you that song. I just told my 12 year old daughter this story the other day, and John is from an area of close to where I'm from. So we have that same kind of You know, childhood redneck experience, But I told my daughter who's 12, right? You know if I go out to dinner with my daughter and I have a beer, my 12 year olds like all judgy, she looks at me and like Mother, Really, I'm like it's one beer. I'm eating. It'll be fine and I told her, I said, When your granddaddy would come home from work, he would pour himself a scotch on the rocks and we drive around and visit people. Like and everyone's house. He poured himself another drink. You know, this was the seventies. It was the glory days and that song the eight tracks and Daddy's Cadillac. It just kind of took me back to my dad and my dad had a Buick 88 this giant diesel Buick, and we just drove all over the place. And it was it was. It was a good kind of thing. So you know, and that's where I first started listening to music as a as a lyric guy, and, you know, really paying attention, and it was whatever Dad was listening to. And the fun thing about that song, and I'm glad you of it. By the way. The fun thing about that song is that there are eight different songs reference in that song, so there are eight tracks and Eight tracks and that he's kind of like, what are some of those old songs that you still like when they come on. And maybe you're by yourself. Maybe you turn up the volume and sing along with Barbara Mandrell or you sing along for me. You know who it is. It's an Murray. To the Canadian songbird. When I hear her, that just is my father and I, you know, and I just crank up and Marie and we sing, and it's awesome. What are some of those songs for you? Well, I mean, I'm on the rock side. If anything Steve Perry does from Germany makes me want to turn it up. He's got a new Christmas record coming out. Um, you know, so I followed some of these heroes divine on On socials and keep up with that, while I'm trying to keep up with all the things that my 12 year old is showing me, you know, with the new music, but there are other things. I mean, if I if I'm somewhere at a barbecue joint, not here. Marty Robbins song? Yeah. That's the kind of thing that my dad was super in love with when we were when we were really very small. So, like things like El Paso and these classic tenancy classic Western towns always struck a chord with me, J and Marty Robbins said. That awesome helmet hair like it just looked like it just snapped off at the end of the day. So how would you describe Lego? Exactly Exactly. How would you describe the music online? Some high like, how would what genre would you? I have an idea, but I want to hear from you first. Well, you know, the way that I described. The people is its arena folk, You know, I mean, you It's like this big, triumphant moment with my favorite, you know? Like Massive stack of harmony. And then there's this quiet, pensive moment with, uh, you know that tear jerker. And then there's a country song. And then there's a bluegrass song, and so it's got this folk element But the harmonies gets so big and I can't stop. You know, uh, putting everybody in the band to task with these intricate parts, And so it seems like Arena Rock, but at the end of the day, it's more arena folk. I was going to go Roxy Folk is what I was going to go because it's not. It's not really blue Z. But there's definitely I got the folk very, very clearly because the harmonies are beautiful and Uh, the girl who sings on good morning believers like her voice. You could drop that on the record in 1971. And it would have been the most incredible hit because she just has that pure, beautiful, clear voice. You know that She's an indigo girl. Oh, get out of tune. I didn't know that. Yeah. Emily Failures is, um, is the bonded to go girl named me raise the brunette and I've did a Christmas song with both of them as the Indigo girls and wrote this Good morning believers with Emily and This is she's just pristine voice is just absolutely now now that you said that now I'm thinking, how did I not recognize her voice Because it's hard to. It's hard to sometimes recognize them when they're not together, But those of us who are developed followers Um, can can pick them out for sure. They're like the Siamese twins of harmony. You cannot separate them because you can't hear it..

"Juilliard graduate ended up working with me in Vegas and then came and worked with me on the road. General Kenney, a hit song called a Love Song, which went number one around the world on my first album. So are Our careers were very close to yours and mine and Kenny, right, and, uh, and and our association, But let me just take a step back and tell you as I joined M records after I had I had prayed for a record deal, and I want to move to Los Angeles. That doesn't work for me stayed in Vegas a long time. That wasn't working for me when I got the call to go to Nashville, and it's a winding road, but I got there. And joined the label and empathy with Reba McEntire, George Strait, The Oakridge Boys and Barbara Mandrell just mentioned Barbara Way had an album together, I wrote. I wrote her. The lead song for that album called We Were Meant for each other turned out not to be the single single was to me. Written by my creed was for football player, but but all of those artists we work 300 days a year on the road. So, uh, in the first five or six albums with 10 albums, I had at least one song and every album because I was writing songs in my bus. I couldn't get to the studio and I hated the picture session. Thie pictures for the albums were heart, Tony. They're harder than the recording according to these e, But you know to have this photo session just like I dreaded it might have a root canal. And I got through it. And about my second or third album we had I usually after a concert when I have 10,000 you've been there. You know, Tony, Orlando and Dawn you're playing 10,000 people and and, uh, And I couldn't go to sleep so I would get in the truck. One of our We had three buses in two trucks on the road, and I get in one of the direct church and talk to the driver for 100 Miles, and then I get back on my bus and finally wind down so go to sleep. But Was always a moment when I could be created. And it was just one of those moments in 1983 when I was sort of like out of ideas for love songs and because that was my thing, and I have never lost the passion to write something for the country. So Musa came pretty quick. Uh, the only thing I didn't have under my hand was the cities and I remember playing out it out in Vegas and And I remember the Philadelphia the Dick Clark Bandstand. And that's how the kids used to judge a record like 1 to 10, right, Right. And so one of the records ahead with Philadelphia USA and I said, You know, if you mention the right cities, you probably get played in the cities. And I have no idea what before meaningful record Universal. Great story. My God. My God Keep don't stop. But when we came with the album you've got a good love coming, which is 1985 way had did it. We did a video and the London train station to support the song. And it was the name of the album first Single release. We have $25,000 in the in the video. In those days, CMT was scrambling for video. Please give us a video. And Patrick Duffy is a friend of mine with a cast of Dallas So he did a cameo at the top. I got to play factor phone in the in the in the video. Well, everybody doesn't realize what kind of a saxophone player you want, By the way, if it was a tenner that I was playing, but it doesn't show me playing it, but I played on the record. So we ready? We're got this in the can ready to come. Come with it in 1985. And I'm in a lot of awards I went, you know. Male vocalist 83 84 85 80 CME N CME and and I said, Maybe it's time to put godless USA on a record and and my producer is like, well, it's not the normal thing to do. But if you want to do, we'll do that. But that's not the single single is going to be. You got a good love coming. I totally agreed and then because we were a profit center in Nashville, Tennessee, We have never solicited Los Angeles to back a record, right? But we were having a little trouble with George Strait. And the reason I say that is because his manager was the A and R guy attempt A. And he put his records in front of me all the time. So I had to struggle to get my record, you know, played by All radio. It was it was a little bit of a battle. So this record we took to L. A for the first time. And Irving Azoff, president Universal and all of his guys sit around and listen to this album, and he's the one that said, I think the singles from this should be God bless you were saying had it not been that had he not said that? I would have never heard. God bless you. And don't get Irving Azoff. He and a pair of ears on him because he's the guy that brought us the Eagles as well. You know, so he new songs and I can't imagine he was the only one prior to that. That felt that way. Is it the same exact record? We've all know? But never nobody had heard it. That we hadn't released the album yet, so nobody had heard. I think I did it. Maybe one or two shows on the road just to test it. And, uh, That was interesting, because you know, when you put a song like that on stage and you're hot act, um they applauded screaming everything you do. It's just the way it is now sheriff to Blake Shelton, who it is You know they they love your your new music Great, but But the response for God bless the USA in the middle of my show was like I had a stop a minute and back up. I have to talk here because I can't go to another song. It's just like they won't let them stop..

"And what it's been through. They do not understand what our country stands for. They do not understand. At the South. And all of America must move. Forward Pass is a rich source of inspiration. We've had lessons that we learn with a great deal of pain. The past is not a place to live way must go forward in the south, and we will say there's Charlie Daniels playing in the background, too. So how was he received amongst more conservative politicians from the South? I think a lot of people in the South were the traditional conservative politicians were not happy with With him. You know, there was an element of racism that was rampant still and you know, but it's interesting, though, that during that time period you looking back on it now and hearing some of the stories about what he was able to accomplish working with People on both sides of the political spectrum. It makes such a stark contrast to see the sort of civility that still existed during that time that people were willing to work together to get their jobs done to do what they needed to Dio. There's a great story about the first Chinese ambassador coming Tio, the United States and Carter's people asked him You know what he was interested in in terms of American culture. They would always ask people like, you know. Do you want to go to a baseball game? Do you? You know what do you want to Dio and this gentleman said he was a fan of country music, and he wanted to go to Nashville. So Carter's people set it up to, like, Have Nashville. Roll out the red carpet and and have Barbara Mandrell play for him and And, you know, set up a brunch with Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash and Minnie Pearl and and all the greats of the grand old offering were all there to have Sunday brunch with the Chinese ambassador. The other thing just to follow up on Mary's point about the But you Nashville, China, etcetera Camp David. Still again, no matter what people say about Jimmy Carter Camp David is probably one of the most complicated. Agreements and diplomacy, foreign relations that's ever been accomplished, and that's an example of again his empathy. His his genuine, his integrity, his honesty. I mean, it's incredible, yes, Oh, Camp David was his signature foreign policy achievement, the peace accords between Israel and Egypt. And yet, so there's that and then, of course, there's the Iran hostage crisis on the other side. Which doomed his presidency, right? Yes. I mean, it obviously played a big part, but you'll marry Mary did a great job taking a very, very difficult Topic and sort of finding a way to, you know, include that in the home. So Carter in your film, You say he would retreat to an office in the White House and listen, Tio. This music. He would listen to Willie Nelson during the hostage crisis to think about what to do on his own. How did he use the music to come up with the with his strategy or To think about what he should or shouldn't do. A lot of people were calling for him to bomb Iran, and he decided against it. I think that what he utilized music for is the same thing that we all utilized music for a times, which is that he found solace and it also allowed him to maybe get out of his own head for a minute and just Listen to the song on this. The album that he's talking about is Willie Nelson performing those kind of classic American gospel songs like Amazing Grace and this Little Light of Mine. And And those songs that Jimmy Carter knew very, very well and sometimes one of the great things about music is that you can listen to it and sing along and just Remember that? Yeah, Your problems are big and his problems were probably bigger than anyone could possibly imagine, But there is a sort of higher power. There is something out there that is bigger than you and I think you know that's that's a big part of what faith is, and I think that's a big part of what music does for us as well. He lost the 1980 election to Reagan, Of course, so he was a one term president. And then he went off to to found the Carter Center and do all sorts of humanitarian work. He was eventually awarded the Nobel Prize. Jimmy Carter is 95 years old. And he did have that cancer scare recently. How is he doing? Mary and I saw him in January.

"From Oceanside, California on this last weekend in August, 2020 For those of you who have never been here or Even more appropriate For many of you who have come to Oceanside or gone through Oceanside. You might be tempted to think of it as just another California Beach town, and in many cases, it would give you that impression. When I first came down here in 1971, it was just another California Beach town. Very, very much. Part of the military at that point still is Because of its proximity to Camp Pendleton. But it's really grown since then. And believe it or not, As you know, there's ah, a supposed to what? One person said about anything west of the Hudson. There's no there there. There's a lot of their here. There's a lot of history here and joining me now from the Oceanside historical Society is Christy Hawthorne. All right, Christy. Great. Thanks for having me Peter Prison. You've been here. What about 27 years? Actually 37 37 years. You know what I feel? But when you came here in 1983 It to me, right? Even then, it was just orders like a sleeping military beef town. It was a military beach town in the 19 eighties. It was really transitioning were had a kind of hit a rough patch. Economically. Downtown was in a downturn and but we great thing about a downturn. Is it eventually going to hit up turn, and it was just a few short years. Actually, Ocean side began its renaissance. And why Why? Well, because, as you mentioned, we are California Beach Town and who doesn't love a California Beach town? We were the most affordable beach town on the coast in California. And finally, somebody got smart, absolutely absolutely one of the things That we had going for us was the ocean side Pier another way, which is the longest wooden pier in the West Coast. Yes, Yes. So it's our claim to fame. Oceanside has had six piers. We wouldn't be ocean side. I don't think without it, but it's one of the amenities that we offer here. Now. Of course, I hate to ask you had six peers because Well, because, you know, eventually over 130 year period, you know, they do wear out on DH when we the first one was built in 18 88. It was probably low to the ocean. The technology to build those things was an all wooden pier One storm. Goodbye. Yes, absolutely. It lasted. You know all of two years and it was gone. And most of the piers that I see in California these days are not wouldn't right. We have a concrete approach, but ours is a wooden pier. It's probably the most affordable way to build. They had looked into construction. Excuse me all concrete pier in 1927, but the cost was too prohibitive. Really? Yeah. Today. Well, today even appear that we have that was built in 1987 was at a cost of $5 million so on and that's an all wouldn't pierce. He can imagine that cost of rebuilding that today. Exactly One of the things I find fascinating. Is that? What back in 1988? You started the oral history program? Yes. And you've been able to preserve those memories on absolutely because there's nothing like a living history and people who can tell you their journey, you know, not even just through ocean side. But what brought them to Ocean side or the stories of their parents? Or the grandparent's getting a glimpse of what Oceanside used to be in the thirties? Forties fifties? Even you know nowadays, of course, you know the eighties or historic s O. You know, preserving this history is really important. You're just a couple of minutes ago, we were talking to John Daniels and their surf history. Of course. Absolutely. Yes. Yeah, we have the California Surf Museum here in Ocean side, So the surf history is very big. It started here at the lifeguards. They would just use their boards there rescue boards that they were used to paddle out to save someone, and they started figuring out that they could surf on them. And so that kind of transition here in ocean side and kind of very natural way. And But there's much more than just serve history. Oh, absolutely earlier in the show, But you have a tattoo museum here. We do Have a tattoo museum. Yes. On Mission Avenue. The front front line tattoo? Yes. That he got his is the original tattoo and the art is the art from the arcade tattoo parlor that was very big in the fifties and the sixties. World famous tattoo artists. You know you've been here 37 years from the historical point of view. What's the thing that surprises you the most about Oceanside? Well, you know, one of the things I learned recently. You know, a lot of people know here in Ocean side. He may be abroad that you know Barbara Mandrell the You know, huge time country Western singer, you know, grew up here in Ocean side. We're graduated in Oceanside. Hi. Cut her first record in Oceanside. But just across the street from us now was actually the 101 wheel club and country and Western size like Merle Haggard and Little Jimmy Dick ends, You know, they got their start here. They played here They would to her and come to California and so just across the street was one of the things I discovered just a couple of years ago. I mean, I'd heard those but just a research and find this kind of gem things because again equating a surf history with country Western music doesn't Really melt. But apparently did Yeah, it's all a part of ocean sites, interesting culture. And so we have layers and layers and layers. And you can access a lot of this online. Can't Yes, we have a website. Ocean side Historical society dot or do we have a great Facebook page? You have an instagram page. Sure you're up to speed? Yes. From the Oceanside. Thank you. Thank you so much. Peter. That means we have time for this hour would.

And he had, uh, Clinton come on and play the saxophone. You know, you thought outside of the box. I'll tell you one thing as an entertainer. You always loved the green room. You know, every you know every good entertainer goes to the show Hundreds uhm Does the green room set up with the food?

He was It was true. And I still have my are spending all robe. Oh, wow. Robes, everybody. I didn't know that school. Even great guy I loved and I loved doing it love seeing them and I love it. I'm really excited about the movie. Yeah, we all are. We all are. Louis. Let's talk. Louis. Let's talk a second about baskets. Look, it's actually and who now, which is great, because I would encourage anybody to watch baskets. If you didn't catch it the first time around. It's one of the best shows on television. The last you know, year to, you know, a couple of years and you were so brilliant in it. You actually won an Emmy for your fear role is Christine baskets. The mother to Zach Alfano, Actresses character, and so I guess. You know, Mike, I've heard you and interviews to say that the Christine baskets character was based on your own mother, and you took a lot from her butt. You know it's comedy, but it's also you know, it's It's a bittersweet role, too. And you want an Emmy for that. What was that, like winning an Emmy? Not just for your comedic talents, but just kind of Ah, really, you know, well rounded character. Well, you know, it was just a dream come true that you know, I just did a I'm doing a show right now. Call back the fun with Blue Anderson and I just I just that there's a clip of it up on my Twitter at the understand I interviewed the director And also Martha and I'm in interviews that coming up But I interviewed them about their experience that baskets and for me my experience, Wass, I got a call. From Louis CK and Jonathan Christel and back And they, Louis that I'm doing a show was back out, Tanaka And, um I will. We want you to play a part I go. Yeah, I was down at the I was just driving into the Plaza Hotel. Backstage parking because I had a show down there. Which is a beautiful show we have ever seen that And they said We want you to play his mother and I go. Yeah, they said they'd be in touch and then like a month later I get a call that, uh To come to Hollywood, not talk to anybody about the character. It's going to be a surprise. And I went there and shot one scene in the kitchen. And I want it to the director. And I said, Listen, I'm not gonna change my voice. I'm just going to be really going to be Israel as I possibly can. And I shot the scene and then Must've been five or six months later that we got the call that they're FX picked it up and In a way we win, but It was incredible. It was an amazing thing. And when I won the Emmy I was, You know, I was shocked and pleased and You know, thrilled Then I thank my mom. You know, I think I said we did it, Mom, Because really, I based a character on my mom. My five sisters. And all the people in my family, you know that And then my life that I didn't I just tried to play a woman. Ah, you know, patterned after my mom who was a wonderful Person and raised 11 Children. So That was really good and There's a voting starts, the second of Of July for this year because we missed the cut off date last year, so basket is up again. Preemies and I'm hopeful. That people will vote for me again because you know you want your peers. They vote for you a lot of competition out there, but I don't think I've ever done anything better in my life Acting. What? Yeah. You deserve it. Louis. It's a brilliant performance. So I always tell people don't you find yourself because I got my dream part when I was 61. It's a good point. It's inspirational. You've worked so hard your whole life. You've had an unbelievable career. I want to ask you a little bit about your stand up because I've seen a lot of different comedians like somebody who I would say is the opposite of you who's very talented, but a dirty comedian. Which is not the stuff you did would be Bob Saget. Right. You see Bob Saget, You think America's funniest Don't be Bob. Yeah, I mean, and he's great. I think they think it's going to be from the show. You're exactly And it's the opposite, right. But then something I've always Pre. She ate it about you because I like the dirty comedians and all that, But I also like the guys like you or you can take your family to see your show and everybody is gonna laugh and have a good time. You talk a lot about your family, Your self deprecating You talk a lot about yourself. You talk about your weight. You talk about your mom a lot. And you know, everybody has a kooky family in some way or another, A loving family. But you know things that people can laugh about, and that's what I've always appreciated about You is like I said, You could be 10 years old or 90 years old Goto watch Louie Anderson and you're gonna laugh and you're not necessarily talking about politics. You're not, you know, hating on anybody. You're just everyone's there, and they just had a good time. And that's why I've always appreciated about your standup. Well, you know, stand up my first love. Everything else is great. On the stand up first and foremost, there was the thing that got me to where I am. I love it. I just had on the 23rd on the CW. They just played my special big underwear. Which was really nice. They're doing a thing called Happy hour Tuesday, and I was the first Yeah, Sean, that was really a nice compliment me Just really enjoy that love that. I guess the thing about stand up is, you know, Let's say your actor, our TV person if you're not working, this is the town. You still can have a career. You can travel around the country. But Vegas was always my own. You know, I probably have done the majority, I would say 3/4 of my shows of my life. I've been done. Done right in this town. You know, the week after I opened here in 84 I opened the next week at Valley as the opening act for the Commodores. And then I worked with the point of this. And Barbara Mandrell and I opened for Smokey Robinson and I, I opened for Kenny Rogers and going Campbell and Rachel. I had to clean that. Like you say, right? Nobody, you know, got offended, and I had just the most fantastic time doing my 20 minutes. And then getting to watch these superstars. Do what they do. I'm on so much and ah I mean, I have really pinched myself. Sometimes you know how lucky I am and how grateful I am. But it's a serving. Nobody handed anything to you. You earned it. I guess that we only have a couple minutes left here. This would be my last question for you. What advice would you give?.

SELLECK mustaches like it's like a monument unto itself I I wonder if it's If he doesn't sure it if it needs to look exactly the same because I don't think it's changed since one thousand nine hundred seventy nine. He's had plenty of roles where he doesn't doesn't have the mustache really really. TV movie where he played. Dwight Eisenhower had no mustache. Was it when he was born. No was that it was the only time he didn't Mustaches like one. He played the baby version of Dwight. Eisenhower well maybe I well. I was trying to think of other. Mike phenomenal mustaches. I feel like you have Tom selleck in this or in anything he does really. It's A. It's a glorious stories Moustache I Ron Swanson from parks and REC. Here's another glorious mustache. Who would you put on the mount? Rushmore of mustaches mustaches. Because we're doing this for movember right so I mean we don't maybe we don't need to do it now but maybe over the course. 'cause it like it's tough to just like think of it on on the fly. Well I mean if I told you it would kind of spoil the movies that are coming up but I put Sam Elliott on there. I put Burt Reynolds on their Burt Reynolds. KINDA IFFY TO ME I. Maybe I'm just not seeing. I put Celik on there though. So he's got to be here right. This Guy I. It's what all the ladies come for right the mustache right it's Yeah so we Kinda spoiled what movie we're talking about without really talking about it because we're talking about Tom Selleck this week for Movember But the movie we're talking about is a is an oddity in terms of this podcast. It it is called Ramblin. Man From nineteen seventy nine. You put quotes around movie. Yeah it this one is. They called us a quote unquote movie which really we call it? Call this a movie. 'cause it's actually a pilot for the nineteen eighty-one series concrete cowboys Tom Selleck only elite shows up in the pilot episode Would later go on to continue store Jerry Reed and a man by the name of Jeffrey Scott who is basically the very low budget legit version of Tom. SELLECK But guys what is your experience with. Tom selleck mustache Again just it's really really it. It's reputation precedes itself. At this point. I when I think when you hear the name Tom Selleck you just think mustache before you in vision his face or anything like that His mustache will probably outlive him. It'll go down as one of the best and that's yeah that's all I really. I know it again. I've never seen him without it. So you you just blew my mind by saying he didn't wear were free sure he also did not have a moustache in the movie in and out remember that movie client. Yeah yet. None of that. There is naked upper lip right there. Those movies that second word in that sentence disappointed me lower. If I said lower lip you would have been the words after naked. I I refuse to believe that those movies actually exist. I won't acknowledge them. Mark Mark Yes so so let's mustache my experience with it is Being the first time that I realized that my grandmom had a celebrity liberty crush because she does not miss an episode of Blue Bloods Land and then she started going around the hallmark channel. And Finding it's something Stone Jesse Stone movie yet Jesse Stone that's it. There are still and watches them constantly. white key used to no the marathon on ion when they would just run blue. Bloods for like hours on and if you want all day. So that's my blue blood's there's two hundred eight episodes. Wow think tank 'cause they had a list of I saw was like longest is longest running TV shows and like four the top six or something weird or like some kind of CBS property. OPERTI I'll tell you when I'm when I'm at work and I'll be walking down the hallway to my My workspace it's all of the TV shows. Rose and at the very end is blue. Bloods and Tom. Selleck just looked almost every day and that mustache. It's it's staring right at me so it's It's really become a big part of my life so it's important. I mean blue bloods. I haven't watched a single episode of probably never will because I'm still thirty so oh I don't know a blue bloods does or I just know I. Tom selleck is in it. Yeah like mark. Tom Selleck the reason why I I realized my dad had celebrity crush. He doesn't just an episode of Blue. Bloods if my in laws the same and he you could probably tell you exactly how many episodes you could catch in a single day. Just ion now is that they attributed to the show or is it attributed to Tom Selleck in his moustache. I think my dad's got a little bit of a man crush on Tom Cell. He definitely really has very you know he's very rugged I mean he what is he like sixty now he's He's ninety five so he sixty four or sixty five still looks good. You know still looks like he can He can be rough and tumble seventy four. Seventy four seventy seventy four God. Math isn't working out well for us. His mustaches immortal. That thing looks like it's right off a concrete cowboys. Yeah he's still that's great. Yeah Hell Yeah I WANNA be. I hope I look like that when I'm fifty four and the answer one question we would stand and it's as close to a show trying to toe. The line between being woke in blue lives matter. That's a tough line to really try to. That's a tough line to cross man I. They must be doing something right again. I like Tom Selleck. Like I'd I would wish ill upon this. This is one of the longer running series. That's probably the best sir and The former Mrs Tom Brady. She's in it bridget. Moynahan girl he kicked to the side pregnant right and yeah and a new kid get on the block that we're no yeah. Yeah true goats status right there. That's with that's what goats do. Yeah right I'm upgrading. Auto never mind. We won't go there all right. I will say off air but I think I know who you're talking about. Yeah all right so yeah the movie we are talking about is Ramblin man guys what if think about Ramblin. Oh Man for a movie it doesn't work but for TV pilot. It also doesn't work because it didn't get picked up. Well well did episode at seven more episodes. I see that it says failed pilot so I thought maybe get picked up but You now it has. It had potential and I liked where they were going with it. But I don't I don't think they can. I don't think they can put all the pieces together to make it coherent because like you said Tom Selleck He had good chemistry with Was Jerry Reed Jared. Yeah so they had had good chemistry there but mark you'll bring something up in a little while about one of the other stars but it just it didn't all fit even though they had everything everything together to me wasn't very enjoyable. Okay yet this. This movie purposes for the purposes. This is a this podcast recalling some movie movie. I was GONNA my little joke. There is that felt more like a TV movie. It would have been right in line in that time period with your murder she wrote. S- you're Colombo's you now just three or four times a year hour and a half making a big deal. You know Sunday nights are. I don't know television was like in the eighties. In terms of what days were popular or not For shows that you know just something that comes on. It's it's a special occasion. Tom selleck is this cowboy detective or fake cowboy. Detective you know going around the south and you know solving crimes you know it. I think that's one of the problems with this. Movie is because they as we find out. It's like accidental. You keep that going as a as a series as did I just keep going to southern states like Oh you guys look like detectives and we'll here we go again you know. It's kind of strange Setup sure I think yeah I think to to your point it kind of I think maybe even fails as a series because part. The Fun is watching these guys get into hijinks right. And if they're just if they're stuck week-to-week just solving crimes or and just kind of taking away from the the actual things that I enjoyed from US I didn't I did not dislike this. I thought it was that we were in trouble when I got about twenty five minutes and I realize that there's something slightly slightly off about this movie that I came to realize that it was a failed TV pilot That is that a show that would run a additional seven episodes roads. Without Tom. selleck Jerry Reed would reprise his role as JD. But then they replace Tom Selleck yeah. It didn't suck but it would mostly what was what I liked about it. Was Jerry and Tom selleck. Kind of having that buddy relationship And sort of a cross between we've mentioned off air dukes hazard and cannonball run and smokey in a band that that kind of just like drifter sort of mentality that seem to be popular in the nineteen seventies where these guys are just going to pick up odd jobs. Move from place to play is going to adventures kind of like that aspect of it but it got bogged down in this kind of murder mystery And probably a lot of the country music stuff would probably lost on a lot of us No because I do bring up a couple of cameos Arroyo cuff Barbara Mandrell and Ray Stevens just like I've heard the name. Barbara Mandrell handrail. But that's the same thing and I thought immediately thought he would enjoy this movie at because one of the first scene. It's Tom Selleck. And Jerry Reed hitching a ride in a box car and one of your dreams when we first getting to know each other. was you just want to ride the rails like I'll have my My Knapsack and I'll just I'll ride the rails man. I'M GOIN' wherever the train takes me so immediately. I thought well ants going to like this movie so I have to hate it so so yes. That's one of the things I liked. I liked the idea of a series where these guys would just jump on a train at the end the very episode and they jump the train at the beginning of the next episode newtown in a new adventure that weights. I don't know how they could possibly work that for an entire long. Run series There's only so far you can go on a train. I'd imagine. Yeah but that's what I would like. I really do think it falls into that that that that made for TV movie four times a year sort of thing so if you would have found like an older cowboy look someone from a Western rather than an upstart actor thorir. That was just about the hit big a year later in in. Tom Selleck if you only did it a few times a year. Maybe you have more time to figure out what each special episode is because it can be all contained and also just make sure you don't hire Morgan Fairchild again about this talk more about God from the first first time okay. Do we want to spoil points because go ahead the acting when she comes in in the beginning at least in the beginning When she first shows up and immediately is like playing her sister of the character she is in the movie and the acting is awful Foale and I immediately kind of knew the ending point? Just because you know it's not a great actress and it also is working fairchild. It's Kinda hard to hide her either. Even under a wigan glasses so the reveal. It wasn't the scooby. Doo reveal older. Ooh Week even though they tried to play it off like that Later on probably the biggest problem with this movie. Yeah and and also she's not a great late singer. She's actually pretty yeah. Jen made sure to let me know. She's not that good. I why now okay. I know in a movie where you have Barbara Mandrell who we sort of. Just no in. The periphery in this movie. The and then you had. This girl is like Oh yes she was trying to. You know she was just as good as anything else I've ever heard of this country star saying that you're just like Oh oh man but and the funny part is they have a line about her character in this movie. Yes to why She wasn't making it big and I I was like well. That's exactly what the actress is like Either she's really good and method and got into how that would sound or she just has no emotion with singing at all but yeah that was my that was the I was so glad. She has limited screen time and she did yeah. She's not ain't much but to your point like yeah as soon as you see her walk and with that terrible dark wig as like oh well. That's their sisters sir. It's maybe they were kind of banking on knowing who she was. I wish that popular when this came out was in a soap at this point but not really that popular. I don't believe yeah yeah I I wonder if they thought they hit it well enough but I mean you could have you could even say they were twins and maybe got away with it for Ben but would aim leaned into it and they said that she's a couple years older than here..

"It for on the air that way, I can offer you could just say it's a ruin I we can keep it a secret. No. But this way, I can offer some context, and you can hear the inflection in my voice that I'm not actually being serious, which is tough to to know. Sometimes you make particular comments on experience. Sometimes I can be a little sassy Twitter and people take are very quick though to respond. Incorrect course, totally. I'm like, I'm very very very sassy. But I also have a good heart. And I'm okay, I'm okay with admitting that I'm just being sassy. All right. We were talking a little bit about we were going to talk about this last hour, but we'll get to it. Now. Associated press. We haven't discussed this on the show yet drew president. Donald Trump is proposing executive order to protect protect free speech on college. Campuses follows a growing chorus of complaints from conservatives at the nation's universities are attempting to silence voices when they're heckled disinvited or their presence on campus is otherwise discouraged. Critics counter that conservatives are turning the the shared goal of protecting free speech into a partisan fight. It's unclear what Trump's order will contain. But the administration has been laying the groundwork. Apparently for months Justice department filed statements in various lawsuits, citing with students as of late attorney general former attorney general Jeff Sessions pined in a forum last fall about the issue education secretary, Betsy DeVos made a similar statement saying administrators too often attempt to shield students from ideas, they subjectively decide are hateful or offensive or injuries or ones. They just don't like. There's no there's no out from the White House about issuing this yet. This is potentially one of those hashtag fake news stories me personally, if they White House does do this move. No. This garbage that happens on it is garbage that happens on on university campuses. But let it play out. Trump doesn't need to issue an executive order on this. Agreed any more than you are going to enforce a business to serve somebody that they don't feel like serving. Don't don't go down this road. Bled. It let it just play out. I tend to agree. This is not something that requires any sort of federal intervention or presidential decree or intervention. This is something that I hope will sort itself out because you're already seeing college in Romans dropping and dropping and driving and in my opinion that is not a negative trend. There dot dropping because people don't don't don't value education. They're dropping because people don't value. What those colleges are offering as an education nor for the price that they're offering at at the entire higher universe higher education, higher university system, in my opinion needs to be completely. Imploded and start over from scratch. You're not talking about doing damage to colleges are you? Okay. Well, she's figuratively imploded with some context. So I say let the colleges continue down this path. Let them go ahead and be stupid. Let them stifle speech. Let them stifle thought. Because the the the end result is more and more people will look at them and go, you know, what? I don't value. What you're offering especially at the price. You're offering it at and I'm gonna go better myself. Elsewhere. Yup. Florida Senator Marco Rubio reintroducing the sunshine Protection Act. Most of the nation will set their clocks forward one hour on Sunday Rubio is hoping to make the change stick. The Florida Senator is expected to reintroduce is sunshine Protection Act, which would make daylight savings time permanent for all the United States. A love it. The Bill originally filed on March twelfth didn't advance. Then governor Rick Scott had just signed a Bill into law to have Florida stay on daylight saving time around year round earlier that we congress still hasn't approved the measure. I don't know if I don't I don't remember Florida that that that be making remember seeing that news. The Lord is not going to change their clocks anymore. Now. Florida's going to be one of those confusing states where you know, what time is it in Florida. Well, congress didn't approve the measure. That's why. But it said the Rick Scott signed the Bill into law right to stay on daylight saving time. Okay. So he did Jason in Florida. Oh, that's what that's how that reads. That's what that tells me. Okay. So that's got. Gotcha. Okay. My bad. I'm where I was reading it wrong. I was thinking that he signed it. But they didn't move forward with it. But you're right. Studies a show many benefits of year round daylight saving time, which is saving time. Right. I don't know all things a stupid construct. Because I always savings time. I hear everyone savings. Nobody's tried to me on Twitter yet on us. That's okay. To happen anymore. Now it'll happen. Studies have shown many benefits of year round daylight saving time, which is why Florida's legislature overwhelmingly voted Jamaica permanent last year. Reflecting the will of the state of Florida. I'm proud to reintroduce his Bill would make daylight saving time, permanent nationally. So all right. Oh, gosh. It's gonna require how does that? So we would go forward and our on on Sunday. And then stay that. It would we we wouldn't. Fallback would not change our clocks at all. We would not fall back in in in the fall. Can we get rid of time zones? To know we need those. Confusing. I mean, I think those make sense. For some degree of uniform time altogether. It concert is a human concert. No, I think I support this. I think you know, the the the reasoning behind daylight, nobody really knows the roaring. That's not true. There's been stories about everybody likes makes things up and says watch because a farmer's it's because of this because of that, and it's it there's really no good reason any more right to change our clocks twice a year. We just do it. Because we've always done it and people feel like we need to do it. But we don't I was always under the impression that the reason. And maybe this is the reason I don't know. But I was always in the impression that we did it. So the days maintain to sort of their their daylight nighttime, our consistency. Right. Isn't that isn't that the conventional wisdom that you change it because of the way the, you know, the planet turns and all that kind of rotten. So your day's end up being similar all year long. I think it's all fake. It's all lie. You know? But then that changes depending on where you're located United States, right? There was a there was a great segment and Sam I'll I'll send you the audio. Maybe we can play it in the next segment 'cause you need to screen it to make sure it doesn't have any any any any curse words or anything like that? And now, my adblocker is not letting me read the article that was the gist of drew. I don't okay trying to four. Why you know? But again, like the further north you go, then when you're the daylight saving time, you know, it it it changes drastically, right? That was the big thing not anymore because I live here now. But when I first moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan. I remember I remember how different that was depending on how close are you got to daylight saving time in the length of how long the day was. And how I just it was it was just trippy to me. Or would you talk about like in Alaska when you go really really far north many people grow being told the daylight savings time is to help the farm industry, but as the segment from John Oliver points out it has nothing to do with farmers. The modern daylight savings time was actually introduced during the first World War is a fuel-saving measure, by the Germans Germans. India? It was it was essentially as a fuel saving measure during a time of war. And then everybody started doing it. And then everybody just assumed that this was what we had to do energy consumption is very different now than it was back, then Indiana adopted daylight savings time in two thousand six I was there in that state when they did it because Indiana used to not change their clocks. So they would be on eastern time for half the year central time for half the year, and it was very confusing mo- mostly for people out of the state trying to do business with people in the state not knowing what time zone it was in. But when Indiana adopted daily time in twenty two thousand six the data shows that daylight saving actually led to a one percent overall rise in residential electricity. One percent amid a one personnel lacks. Well, don't don't don't don't don't talk about that article anymore because if people find out that it's Marco Rubio it originated in the war was wartime, Germany daylight savings. You just know where that's heading daylight saving. DSP kills people in the the the week after the time change there is an increase in car accidents and work related injuries. Because people are still adjusting. I don't understand why we still have it. Tom, man. I want somebody somebody bring me the stat of the of the unintended the the deaths related to governments unintended consequences of their actions. Like yesterday, we were talking about the the article about what how how renewables don't work. And if you go to twin cities news talk dot com, and you go to the Justice and drew page. You can see that entire fantastic piece that we were referencing yesterday. Remember in that we were talking about the difference between renewables and nuclear energy, and how how nuclear power has actually saved lives over the years while renewables has killed people like you get stats like that. And they go how how many people have died because there's just stupid legislation. Shouldn't have anything related to any kind of Desa whatsoever. Unintended concert rights. Speaking of which Caroline, Minnesota lawmakers have revived bills that would increase penalties for those who drive to slowly in the passing lane. I don't care until you bring me the legislation of people who tailgating. Happening again yesterday was on the phone with John yesterday. And we're in the middle of the conversation. He just he stopped short. And he's like somebody's tailgating me nobody else on the wrong. Oh behind me. Because they were I was in the middle lane the far right lane in the fast lane. We're completely clear. There was nobody had any nobody about them. And this. Giddy. It is behind me in there. Honda SUV right on my bumper. I'm like why? I've done nothing. Nothing. I don't know you. Idiot. Couldn't believe it. Anyway, there reviving the slow poke the the slow poke crackdown. I think this Bill promotes an easy way. For better traffic flow throughout the state Senator Inskeep. Bill would raise the fine for driving too slowly in the left lane to what dollars from its current level of fifty once you attack on the seventy five dollar standard, surcharge, all for for all moving violations. This Lopo violation would be a hundred and seventy five dollars. Now, that's significant. The measure would also that's a deterrent permit. People to exceed posted speed limits by five miles per hour in order to pass a slow poke. Yeah. The Bill would also also calls the State Department of safety to run public awareness campaigns, alerting people to existing rules of the road. You call. You you call with the increase in increasing penalties. How do you how do you enforce that? By the way. I was I was feeding officer because I was passing. That's that's slope poke. Yeah. Right. I mean, I think most officers are already sort of grant, you that leeway if you're clearly passing somebody if you're in the left lane, and you're not excessively speeding you're within that ten mile an hour window over the speed limit. And you know, I think it's very rare that you'll actually get pulled over for that. So you know, that that's that's already fine. But yeah, I think you know, we have rules on the road. And if you don't follow the rules, you get a citation and one of the rules of the road is that the left lane is for passing. It is not for sitting in and driving. The speed look up. Mentioned quite often the Barbara Mandrell CBO commercial. And I was a kid, right? How how how what an impact that had on me? Bob Mandrell at the red card. Thirty seconds before I got into this accident. I buckled up if I hadn't. They would have died in the world would have been deprived of Barbara Mandrell, one of the one of the this one time when I was during the dark years the most effective. Means of getting me to slow down. This is the strangest thing was coming back. No job Tijuana, Mexico. I'm passing these free nuclear power station for those that are familiar with southern California. And I got pulled over was me and a bunch of my buddies, right? We'd been up all night hadn't been drinking wasn't wasn't given driving. But I've been up all night, driving back home. And there's officer pulled me over and I was stunned. I was speeding. I was shocked because he wasn't anywhere near me. Like, I don't know where he came from right? I guess the worst like he's like I'm driving and there's hardly anybody on the road. Right. The at isn't were driving along the coastlines beautiful morning. We're all tired, and it's just and then he comes flying up any. That's what it was. He keep flying up behind me. Like I saw him from way behind you can find them..

"Senator Scott Neuman said it has come to be a universal danger to us on the highways. It seems to be comparable to comparable to drunk driving. We are now dealing with cell phones in the twentieth century as we were drunk driving in the twenty first century as it were drunk driving in the twentieth, century voice commands and voice activated phone calls. Still be allowed but getting driver's hands off their phones would make it easier for law enforcement to enforce the current ban on texting while driving with Uber. Law enforcement can remain anonymous, if if you if like just in terms of the enforcement to aspect of this, you know, it's interesting too because and I've got a couple articles here that I'll share with you. We're talking with Jesse Kelly at eight thirty five this morning just as a bit of a preview for the rest of the hour. But a couple of articles here has the hands free law accomplished. This was out of New Hampshire. There's another one here is it safer to use a hands free cell phone. There's one particular item in this that I found I opening that we will that will get into. But I do know that when it comes to your we're going to get to your phone calls when it comes to law enforcement and their ability to. Pull somebody over or to witness somebody doing it that has changed in my opinion. I used to be and I've been I've been somewhat fluid and trying to keep an open mind on this. I used to be of the opinion that that was something that was very difficult to do for an officer to spot an individual on their phone and then pull them over. Right. That has changed with the smartphones. I think earlier on with texting before we had the full screen smartphones. And how big they've gotten right, especially if you look at the newer, iphones any of us driving around can spot somebody. It's almost comical. You know, it would be it would be funny. If it was it scary. But, you know, you're driving down the road, and you see somebody. Why are they driving so slow or why are they leaving back and forth, and it used to be there drunk now nine times out of ten you can pull up next to him and see them with their face in their in their cell phone. So I can certainly see from a law enforcement aspect of how this could be much easier than it's been in the past. And I'll get into some of these articles about the effectiveness of what's happened in other states that have already enacted this. But first, let's go and talk with Richard in Denver. Good morning. Richard. Welcome to twin cities news talk. And what are your thoughts on the hand free on the hands free Bill? Done. A I stop number one. I can't even count on two hands. The number of doctors. I've seen driving around talking on their cell phone number two as a conservative. I am terrified about your guests opinion. And that you agreed with him. Picked up with. Mommy government surpassed more law to start the punishing people or more in society. Well, let me hold on Richard. Let me let me I'll leave you on the phone here. Let me clarify my position on this. When it comes to the hands-free part of it. Okay. I don't like that. I don't like I'm with you. I do not like the the the government trying to step in and regulate behavior. Okay. There is a couple of aspects on the hands free one that I'm trying to keep an open an open mind on because believe it is a problem. What Davis mic was proposing was the increase in fines just what he was proposing. Okay. I'm not going down the road of confiscating phones or pulling data off but just the increase in fines. We're heading down a road where the legislature is going to do something if they are going to do something if we're increasing fines, I am more likely to get on board with something like that than I am to try to go and regulate a specific behavior like. By forcing individuals to go hands-free the increase in fines. You know, that's there's some wiggle room. In my opinion. I think we have laws on the books that already take care of this. But something is going to get done. You know, what the time and effort and money would be better invested into PF aid. Have you ever seen that one commercial where the girl week tougher? She's wandering around hell and injured and bloody. And it turns out that you and she was texting while driving. Commercial? Sure, that's very that's very effective. And that sort of thing is very very as a gradient packed on the millennial Mike 'cause they're all they all think in terms of video thing, movies and everything but just passing laws. I I've noticed it. It's going to have no impact. And once again, you're trending towards mommy government towards increasing clients towards taking money from private people and putting it into the government. And they absolutely applicants disagree with it in every way, and I was shocked and chicken that your. Agreed with a guy six second. That's a bit much. Really Richard second. He's still there. Okay. Okay. Okay, richard. Let's let's let's let's go here for just a moment. Okay. We do need to keep an open mind, in my opinion. We need to keep an open mind about these things. Okay. We we we we really do. And and I'm with you. I'm absolutely with you on the slippery slope argument. Okay. But that being said there isn't any restricting of freedoms or or liberties in an increase in in fines, and maybe a potential to do I'm with you. I think we should go and increase awareness, and I have my own story initiated it many times on the air when it comes to seatbelts in the Barbara Mandrell commercial from years ago when I was a kid in the impact that it had on me, maybe the money that they bring in from individuals who are busted with this because they're having to pay more money can go for an increase in the awareness campaign, but I certainly will take and thank you. Thank you for the phone call. I certainly will take an increase in fines over a a hands-free Bill because they hands-free Bill one is the one that's way. That's that's the regulating of behavior. Something's going to happen here. I'd much rather. See you Dave Mack and an increase in fines than I would a hands-free Bill move forward, which in some instances has gone to show that the hands free Bill just forces the worst offenders to go and and hide it. Look at what. Okay. Here's the thing. What do we do? Sam you've seen this all the time. You mean, we all do the idiots driving down on the road, you know, on their phone with their phone like in front of it's ridiculous. So obvious about it. You know, doesn't increase in fines of awareness. Does that does that go does a fifty dollars to five hundred dollar fine? Does that go does that do anything to go and keep an individual from getting on their phone? Does that make them think twice? I think that the only time that it might. I don't really I don't really think. So I think that once people start doing something, even if they get fined they're still going to eventually go back to doing it. And I think at the very least if it does make them think twice about it. They're going to get the that fine. At least once and then maybe they'll start to maybe change their ways after they pay a bunch. Yeah. Does the extra law and the potential benefit of to safety? Outweigh the precedent. Being sent a set of a new law. You know, I don't I don't I don't think. So I mean, we had the conversation with with Senate majority leader Paul kazakina earlier in the week, and he was talking about, you know, eventually these things are going to correct themselves just based off the technology in another in and of itself. I'm already answering my car, but that everybody has a newer car or your phones automatically hooking up to your to your to your stereo, a lot of people that I know that don't have a that. It's not automatically didn't come with hands-free are installing things like hands-free like they can install it later market. That's a lot of people are doing. All right. Let's go and talk with what Tom in Roseville think he agrees with Richard. I'm on the wrong side. That is one good morning. Good morning. Tom. Welcome to Justice and drew. What are your thoughts? Good morning. Yeah. I completely agree with Richard. I don't think we ought to be making laws, and even if we do think that something is going to happen. I think I think it's worth I think we ought to not agree. And we ought to just kind of fight against that. Because it's too. To take freedoms. Even if even if you're just kind of taking little bits of freedom here, and there, I think that's just claim the wrong road. But even just in Jeevan, just increasing the fines. Correct. I think that's wrong to give it even increasing the fines because that's that's just another another penalty. That's another way of of having the law. And I think once you start down that road. You can always make the argument that. Well, we're doing that. We're doing this just in the interest of of safety of protecting the person church protecting the person from the person granted, I understand. There's there's always a danger. But getting on the road. There's you're putting somebody else in danger. I I agree with that. But at the same time to make a law where we're basically protecting ourselves from ourselves. I just think that is completely wrong way to go. All right. Thanks for the call. Tom. Look look when it comes to if. If increasing the find in my opinion, I'm just gonna go ahead and say it, right? I I don't like the slippery slope. And I'm the first one I mean on the first one to step up and go, I don't wanna see the slippery slope. But at the same time, there is a problem taking place here. I don't like the hands-free part of it. But if increasing a fine potentially could get an individual to think twice. I don't see that limiting anybody's freedom or or or liberty in this case. And if we're worried about the slippery slope that we need to also stop stop and go, okay. If that's the case, then we need to step up a start being adults and making sure that we go and look at every single issue. Invent every single issue out sometimes the slippery slope argument comes into play and sometimes the slippery slope argument. Does it come into play? This is a real problem. I see it every single day on my drive from ear to Blaine. Right. And I don't know if increasing finds is gonna stop those individuals those idiots on their phones that are staring at it. I'm going. Man. I can see eurobond your phone. You're being dumb. But do I. But again, I also don't know doing nothing. Either is the is the is the right course of of action. Hey, Dave Osma, expect good morning. Dave. Individual. I really do. Your arguments are ridiculous. And I'll tell you why. You know? Conservatives conservatives, quote, unquote, the call Dan, whoever was supposed to have a civil libertarian streak. Like, I do you believe if you're talking non hands-free on your cell phone, you grow through a stop sign because you're ignoring what you're doing. And you kill someone you take away, and you can tell I'm getting angry you take away someone else's life. You think that they should spend five days in jail. You're kidding me. Right. You have the ultimate ultimate violation of someone else's civil rights. This isn't about you. This isn't about your selfishness. This is about what you have done to another human being. Think about that one for a little bit, folks. I am not taking away. You're right, right. Lamb doing is saying you have the right. You have the risk. Just like you have the risk of having a drink and getting behind the wheel just like you have a risk of everything that you have in your life. I'm saying you're going to you can take that risk. It is a calculated risk everything yet. But if you screw up because of your own incompetence, you're going behind bars. Thank you for the soapbox. You may not refer to your previous previous. Dave. Can you hang on for one second? Okay. And and I also think and I and I'd be curious to get your thoughts. I also think that as conservatives we need to not always dealing absolutes. And that's what that's what worried. That's what worries me about this is that. And like I said before I'm the first one to get on board of pushing back against something because of the slippery slope argument, right? But at the same time, we can't just stanchly oppose something or a new built just because it's a new Bill, and that's what I think happens a lotta times. It's just well, it's new legislation. So we have to oppose it. No, not every time. Sometimes there's new good legislation that needs to be looked at and that doesn't apply to every single item. That's being pushed forward. And I think it's a mistake is conservatives if we start taking this absolutist mentality of opposing everything, and that's kinda vibe that I was getting from a couple of callers. Right. As a major correction. There are some times where you do need to make Luton vase. I mean, I'm working on other laws deal with the open meeting was that the supreme court is somewhat struck down in the state of Minnesota. I'm doing that. So that you as a citizen have the ability and have a new law that you are actually able to exercise your constitutional rights to protect yourself from your government. Are you saying that I shouldn't create laws like that to protect you from your city or your county or even the state of Minnesota the whole point here folks is this is healing with an activity that you voluntarily do. And when you hurt someone or you injure someone else there is a penalty prepaid. And if you don't think that that should be done if you think, well, I'll just give somebody five days in jail for killing somebody you think that's the right thing to do. You should go. Look at yourself in the mirror because the start of the constitution says life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. If you take someone's life, you're depriving them of everything. So think about that one a little longer before you make a phone call and make yourself into what you. Senator Dave is make really quick give us the the press. Release bullet point of the hands-free Bill versus what it is that you're proposing. Right. The handsfree Bill says you can't use a cellphone like I am right now. I'm thirty three ninety four. You can't put it to your ear. It must be mounted. And you can't it must be hands free device. It bans you from putting it to your ear. Right. That's the easiest description. My Bill says okay, you can drive now. Three ninety four with your hand to your ear with your cell phone. But if you get into an accident you cause bodily harm or death. There's going to be sentencing and punishment for the activities the risk that you took that you inflicted on someone else..
