"To doctor Laura earlier was how everybody's talking about all the Democrats that did or did not show up to vote for Joe Biden Bernie but what we're not hearing a lot about the trump voters showing up in the primaries they are showing up in full force manned leverage a perfect example few weeks ago New Hampshire right and that's a blue state New Hampshire is not a state that the president count on winning but he had a record turnout there and a last night let's talk about Texas Donald Trump last night in a primary where he's based simply running opposed people don't have to show up there's really no need to show why he got almost two million votes in Texas can put that into comparison George W. bush in two thousand four as an incumbent president six hundred and thirty five thousand Barack Obama in two thousand twelve as an incumbent president five hundred and twenty thousand trump had a one point eight seven one million now let's go to some states that aren't necessarily Republican friendly how about Colorado Colorado blue state Bernie one Colorado last night but turnout for Republicans higher than the previous three G. O. P. presidential primaries combined then you'll get a state like Tennessee Tennessee coming off just an awful tornado where it's created all kinds of heartbreaking and a lot of people don't know if they were gonna be having their primary on Tuesday president trump received more votes than any other incumbent president the last three decades in Tennessee the day after a deadly tornado I mean even in New Hampshire it was freezing cold that night the primary right trump voters still got out Oklahoma the president one with the highest margin of victory than any incumbent president since before Reagan and their state after state seven we don't have enough time to mention them Vermont and Arkansas and Alabama huge turnout numbers for Donald Trump voters and we've talked a lot about how the Donald trump voter isn't necessarily Republican the Dow trump voter isn't somebody it's gonna vote in mid terms a lot of people just vote for that guy number forty five and he brings them out in the numbers are there so that's why it's so important for a lot of these Democrats to talk about building up the base getting voter turnout Bernie Sanders didn't get voter turnout the young people that support Bernie didn't show up Biden is older crowd they showed up yesterday all right now the young Turks I'm not sure if you're familiar with who these clowns are it's a very liberal started off as a podcast another kind of growing the network to a website YouTube YouTube the young Turks very liberal hosts they were reacting in real time last night too Joe Biden having a lot of success and Bernie taking a big dump we cannot let by doing guys not just some progress is first established in this is so important I need you to understand this hi this is not gonna be trump is either near senile or actually see not watch any of the tapes and one was he's going to get caught he's okay the media is covering for but they're not gonna be able to cover what the Republicans go for it when trouble comes for him he's a big strong this weekend it is less likely to be trouble anyway we just twenty sixteen you would give me a slight problem and now here we go is that we can be that is far worse he lives a thousand times more than Hillary Clinton did right and you're going to run that guy because trump and we're gonna make a loser democracy hell no you have to them so they think Bernie could beat trump but not by correct their argument is and I kind of see where they're going as Hillary was a better candidate than Joe Biden and Donald Trump beat Hillary so why would somebody think that a you know generic version of pantsuit Patty would do anything better than what she did maybe she was the better candidate but was she more electable than Joe Biden I don't think so she was unlikeable I think she's extremely unlikeable but they don't here's what I'm saying the the D. N. C. can save itself a lot of time in trouble just just admit you don't want Bernie I could not that's the case because it's not about at this point the D. N. C. knows it can't beat trump so it's not about getting an electable candidate to run against Donald Trump at this point they're more worried about the nominee ruining the down ticket or the down ballot whatever you wanna call it for the other Democrats running for other offices like state races governors and stuff like that whatever I mean you put a socialist like Bernie in there not only is he gonna lose to trump but voters are going to flee the party all together right so at this point it's not for the DMZ it's not about who could be trapped there they're thrown in the towel already there throw in there they just that they're saving the establishment if you're Bernie Sanders what's your strategy moving forward I think we got a little peek of it last night when Bernie was speaking on the stage last night he had one Utah good one Colorado he'd won his home state of Vermont and California I don't know if California had been called yet when Bernie spoke but I think this is a little preview of what you're gonna see and that's full on warfare going at Joe Biden one of us in this race led the opposition to the war in Iraq you're looking to another candidate voted for the war in Iraq one of us has spent his entire life fighting against cuts in social security that's wanting to expand social security another candidate has been on the floor of the Senate holding for **** to social security Medicare Medicaid veterans one of our land the on trade agreements which cost us millions of good paying jobs and that's a big the candidate voted stall disastrous trade agreements one of us it said we will not support a disastrous bankruptcy belt and another in the late represented the credit card companies and voted for the disastrous bill Henley moved in communist Russia love with del Castro Sir this is a Wendy's drive place your order so he laid the groundwork last night it's on like Donkey Kong he's going after Joe by yeah you better forget about Donald Trump for now hi to the guys it's quoted quoted as stealing voted rigging the election of the people that are rigging the election the primary against you in corona virus news there's a new poll out that says because of the threat of catching the corona virus two thirds of people in the survey said they would turn down turn down an all expense paid free cruise somewhere no no I'm not turn that down free all expense paid I've never been on a cruise before so I don't know some people swear by see I'm not a big cruise guy because in addition to what's happening now how many times have we heard those war stories about all the food being bad or something wrong with the food and everybody gets sick I'm a big cruise guy rather just sit on the beach get drunk and pass out he the guy that did the I got to get the bread and milk and remember that we use it in our snow warnings are hammer Niger severe yeah weather alert weather alert the guy that went viral by freaking out as I got to go get the Briton bill click I gotta get the brunt of milk that guy he's now done another one having to do the corona virus I've got to get the gloves and so on they said the corona viruses coming I think if the gloves and and so I don't get the gloves so I got to sing Happy Birthday while washing my hands for twenty seconds coronavirus government the gloves if if anything has come from the hysteria and that's exactly what it is because of this we've only made it a point to focus on washing our hands that's not a bad thing for somebody the other people that actually don't wash their hands when they leave the bathroom I'm sure there are hello we saw a video the other day of Mike Bloomberg like tearing off the crest of a piece of pizza putting it back looking as fingers then moving on I did see that grows all man is pretty nasty I don't even use the hand sanitizer stuff that's bad but like my skin gets rationally and yucky and dry enough my dermatologist like yeah just you know just wash your hands wash your hands frequently I mean you shouldn't have to tell people Hey the best thing for your health and I can't stress this enough wash your hands and wipe your **** please if you've learned anything from the hammering Nigel so today not necessarily in that order wash your hands and wipe your **** ticket dubbed do we have that clip of Celine Dion standing by mind because we've got the music news here you make music news that ties into politics so Beto Robert Francis o'rourke came out this past weekend and endorsed Joe Biden he did that at that rally down in Dallas kind of surprised a lot of people because many thought that the beliefs of Robert Francis were similar to that of Bernie but he didn't go that route well it turns out that his old bandmates member beta was in a band at one point they are all ticked off that Robert Francis endorsed Joe Biden one of his solo one of his former bandmates denounced him after the endorsement saying quote team Bernie all the bleeping way which got me thinking how awful do you think that band this how awful is the band that Robert Francis o'rourke is a part of what it sounds something like when Celine Dion try to do a cover of AC DC.

"Gonna be one of two performers here later today on suit the Superbowl halftime show which excites both Superbowl fans end those fringe fans come on you know who you are Shakira along side Jennifer Lopez is I think the first time that two female headliners again be performing at the halftime show I'm pumped for that although I do admit that I am more of a Jennifer Lopez fan than a secure a fan but it's cool that they're both doing it can mean excellent show I've never seen either of them live I've been to a lot of concerts but never have seen either of them live and I really missed out on the Jennifer Lopez in Vegas residency I really did but Hey there's always next time right well now maybe not but that that's one thing I would regret not going out to see that but us real live and if you've been to my M. you know that live is the night club there and Miami beach so I think it's kind of funny that the the Roman numerals R. L. I. V. fifty four and that club does exist I wonder if they sponsor just kidding that's that's just a joke and the skills you choose our wanna point favorites I just give you my pic I'm going to dance I'm going with the underdog I guess I just love an underdog story and are they really underdog though if there one one half point underdogs I don't know I'm going to San Francisco forty Niners thirty one Kansas City Chiefs twenty eight we are rolling toward six AM I'm Bob Salter comes your way and then carton okay and by the way do we grapple I think he's going to be the MVP we have just filled up the phone lines you guys and get through it all I'm I'm I will get to every single one two eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six let's head out to Rocklin at New York and you're on the fan we are doing a great job for first of all she Keeler verses Jennifer Lopez on that's the story who's gonna be the better performer hello Dow Shakira commodity too **** she got the Colombian blood held a little from the product that's all I know I did Jenny from the Bronx Jenny from the block what you know I I is for the Superbowl this one you know I predicted the the Denver Seattle super bowls a blow out long time ago when I was here at MetLife stadium right this one smells exactly like it I got it thirty seven to twenty one the San Francisco forty Niners me he knew I think might be the only two tonight that that are picking a forty Niners well listen I just see that you know defense and running game usually when there and went and when the throwing game is not working and they get behind I think it is this this time they're not going to come back we had a caller before say about you know do you know about Dustin call quick he's the best punter in the league yeah I do know about him but when you pin the forty Niners back that only eats up more time off the clock for it for I mean the the chiefs win with passion homes on the field and when Patrick homes on the bench tough side that they can't get anything going in my opinion I'll be surprised if Patrick Mahone's makes it to the end of the game of this one is going to try to do a little bit too much and by the by the mid fourth quarter though going to be he's going to be done an injured yeah probably a little little hip flexor little knee problem not that I'm wishin and all of them but I just think that he is going to come in time in this game that he's gonna have to run more and he's gonna have to start doing more forcing a little well Eddie if if that one is that is true Hey thanks for the call if that comes true if I pass from home doesn't finishes game which the bold prediction that that that's a hot take man I need you to call back next week with five numbers for Powerball for me okay that that's how we're gonna handle that one Mitchell in Fort Lee you're on the fence thank you morning how are you what's up okay listen you know thinking about this game and I hear everyone saying I know you're going to forty Niners I'm gone and the city and here's the reason why I'm taking candy okay number one I think the whole skit extra part shows the game that the plants or have you can run the ball right that I okay that's that's what I can change number two if you look at Kansas city they had two weeks back when it plays a tight and nobody can stop and we won't be able to append your grades are still weak no it's not gonna be when he went to Baltimore Kerr he went to a New England he couldn't stop but when they came to Kansas city they shut him down they only gave up fourteen points they only give a fourteen point after the deal the fumble and that you know and and big flight and also there's no way after the first five guys on on the line from the forty Niners they can stop they they can't stop all the wide receivers and the running back they're not and and right and they're just not enough people to cover so that's the other part to it yeah I'm running backs the chief they they don't they don't scare me at all they they scare you they struck fear into you but what is one point that because they have all these weapons home is another weapon he wants more than grapple once you're great yes for sure yes okay okay so one twenty two if if they go into shock on and if they know and they and they can't get morning give long they can they can pass one he can run well he's a great writer also hears about yes okay they had two weeks to shut down the bill Henley they shut him down you agree with Joe that two week shutdown had we had to shut down the running game if they shut down the running game the forty Niners passing in the last two weeks in the playoffs yeah yeah I know that's not what the game plan called for I mean look AT week fourteen verses the states I mean do we grapple for touchdowns unlike what some like thirty five attempts I mean that's what that's what it called for to for them to win they can do both things yeah but but but here's the part that the state championship their defense of their state and everything are can stop that because they don't there they can stop that they don't have as many weapons wide receiver white yes up budget old whatever it is the middle initial criteria yeah you got to stop he's a beast I just feel that stack and years of the park I don't put my hands on Shanahan the windows because look what he did when he was with a laptop right I think the wallet I think what was once a championship any and listen this guy's the ones for years and you know what China has going to get it yeah one day but the warriors get his his championship he's earned it he put his time in the NFL and that's how I look at it and I and I hope and I here's the best part whatever what I know are you know thousands of people what boxes but a Superbowl I hope the numbers come up so crazy that people have a good number it would have been up to seven seven zero zero I don't yeah I hope so I got to four to five so I'm next week but here's my prediction yeah Horace twenty eight twenty one all right we got a missile thanks for the call you know there's any read you know everybody will want him to win everybody wants to will him to win the game I just don't see it happening I want a convertible Ferrari and just because I want one doesn't mean I'm going to get one and just because everybody wants in you read to get this Superbowl it doesn't mean he's gonna get one I think Kyle Shanahan learn from that with Atlanta and I think I think he's the better of the two coaches Erica among Iran contra what's up this week it in L. O. missiles right my wife has to invite you go the though a little while the incident was you know just just real quick when you're playing that music for Kobe before that yeah that that always gets me said because they they they were must be Paul Walker you know what is your seat you know at that the that crashed obviously it's been an eight right and then they played that music in the movie that yeah has been yeah yeah that was so that you know it always reminds me of that you too okay you know to the about ten Coleman how much work you really think he's going to get a mini separate shoulders no no yeah that is somewhat of a big deal I mean that the way you want off the field and I can't imagine them using them too much on it because I mean if if they're moving around pretty good and it's a hard field or whatever yeah we did the wrong hit on there he's out again yeah I mean on it so that yeah but they they also have met Rita and they also have remote start so it's it's like yeah it does if they would if that happened to the chiefs it would be more concerning to me but since there are two other guys that are more than cable it doesn't worry me that much yeah yeah well well when is breeder just you know I I've been watching them too because I I like the you know I I've been you know thinking about using them on my fantasy team you know during the end of the season and you really I never really racked up a whole lot on there is really more Coleman at most but yeah that's it that would be a good fantasy play because there are three of them it's like the one third of the workload you got to pick a guy that's taking most of the the carries on fantasy team right I think I don't I don't really have the you know specific you know team that I'm thinking is gonna win I'm open for a great game and if it turns out to be like you know that the end of the ramp heightens Superbowl on there that that would be phenomenal there that that's all we can ask for an a and a again like that you just hopefully doesn't come down like a like a poor referee handle I know I know or or even like a weird play like me and I given the ball the Marshall Lynch you know and thrown it right the yeah do you want you want to see it you know if someone's going to get stopped or whatever you want to see it with their best player kind of thing right I'm open for yeah I agree with you enjoy your weekend and thank you to Erica yeah and I agree I think I think referee should might my always opinion on referees and we could talk me probably next week about how the MLB is gonna Mike up their own partners all my god it makes you want to are you know I think referees and officials should be seen and not heard let them play the game my god the what I do not want to see in this game is a referee reaching into his pocket and yanking a flag on on on a questionable call that that will slant to the game one way or another on a fifty yard pass down feel you get a flag I mean I just I that I I hope it does not rear its ugly head in this game really I mean we think about the saints it just right I just I hope it's not part of it and I don't I mean I'm not one to give fantasy advice I don't think either but even when you think of three running backs have to spread the workload I mean I thought lay beyond that was gonna get a lot of the work load this year but the here we are with Adam guru as the coach well you know how that went Jeff in Jersey city on the fence thanks Danny O. good show away thanks my main topic is issue well one quick one on on and I'll be yeah dusty Baker is a great little well one of baseball's image control yeah yeah yeah and he's a great guy and and you know he's a little eye candy we hope you you that you're going to turn away quickly to ball which I I tend to agree with all your points jelly and I what I want candy city but you know you can't we'll go with your heart as you just stated yep you will you mention the keys chemical Apolo is actually at night he's in okay he's an excellent quarterback yeah thanks to bill Belichick's yep you gave that to forty nine is if you remember that yeah for nothing and it also now the forty nine is as you said their running game is a powerhouse the chiefs don't have a one game right when he nine have a great defense Kansas city not so much I.

"Sound engineer for Woodstock ninety nine actually built some from from scratch because you had to for this massive event and I'm guessing that you way before anything else is bill you had to go out there and look at this field to get a sense of what you had the bills how did he ran figuration of the field affect what you had to build well but will markets way up at the outer extremes of the audience and show we look at sound the same way you look at like you gotta go can't can't have obstacles in the way stretches of the people in front well the yep engine trying to the people of have to hear more of the the hills cover are higher than the their heads up so we push the thing up to about seventy feet high for the rear speakers and then a conventional set up but we do know when I'm in the hall on the lower trims speak and then these speakers was specially built together much narrower dispersion as possible so that we can concentrate the sound up on top of the hill all up to the top of the hill narrower dispersant because the distance was so great well because the square root law that gives expands and expands by putting line arrays we see all these tall a reason speak your mind their own business beaming speaker in the get look less sound bouncing off the walls of the internal surface or to just run along the line it will just make a narrower dispersion in which is you goes up the birds in the sky facing down a little bit not trying to trying to beat that nine don't speakers to that special hourly did you have to get out to the field to you know get involved where you are six months out or four months I've known groups we now do one do walk he'll when we get shut down in one of these are designed it there and then we stopped in went back to Medford and waited for them to make the deal for the new potential space then I went back out there and went on to Max's hosted sold out with him and several of the people I can't remember which ones were there at the time and then drove on the southeastern let up certain season turn left the next room not right in the midst of looking to small appeals and then ran into the big field with a bold type set up and Mr that would be the perfect place to do this and then I walked field with no phone use park itself with the trunk that has become very then later in security wall system to try to contain no people and make the walls high enough so that they couldn't see the stage they stood near the wall which one is yours as ground control I didn't realize that the site was chosen based upon how it would sound I didn't realize that you answer and got to choose the room if you will yeah right yes then they decided that the people decided to solve or fact that's great design how long did it take your actually erect this stuff went when you like that out there we only have three full weeks deal with it in and out there then we walked around and well greens didn't put them up in the air yes No which weeks well no we you where were you during the whole concert we once in one particular spot we all over the place one second I was all over the place on everything to make sure it's running from one the other man watch out he station one of them and put the actual plans on the the moments hearing on stage underneath the stage and then not with only a sixty nine one of problems once you have to find the open he this is because a lot of problems in blowing out and then compress the signal so it was similar to what you know new radio hours to get there the route in the year you're listening area more people there than expected did that affect sound I'm sorry one hundred thousand and one hundred thousand shown up so they say the point is that you're pretty good at the back as long as they wanted I'm having trouble with the the phone signals anyway you can adjust the phone is a little bit low level up yeah yeah that's better yeah what about the weather the weather in the water we had a problem did you have to scurry around and protect things from the water we had one bad one banned weapons skater and we just batten down the hatches when they asked the kids to get down off of silence so we wouldn't get to overload and slide down the hill on the apple and now let's muscles on the when the going to meet them but we're worried about that and then we just covered everything appalling polyethylene did you want to try to get out into the crowd and how did you get out there did you try to get to the top of the hill because I'm sure you want to hear it from everywhere how did you get around was that was that a struggle or were you able to get around I was able to get around I'm just went down on that I'm the backstage and then up over around the crown many bombs that all the way up the top and walked across the front your arms covering improperly and then back down to keep an eye on everything mix a little bit in mind people wearing blue number doing groups all over the country anyway what makes it more familiar with so so when you do and sound in a in a room having a lot of people there is helpful sometimes as I'm thinking because they it absorbs sound how did that the extra three hundred thousand people I thank the sound at Woodstock we lost our signal that's alright we get the general idea thank you very much bill it was a it was a poor connection anyway I expected it would would go there it is you actually heard the voice of the dude the man the father of festival sound bill Henley who built the the F. sound system for Woodstock ninety six and the guy is a certified genius he invented he invented the concert sound it didn't exist before that they just had kind of loud speakers like you have a race track not you know the guys because it would announce the names of horses at a horse race and tell Bill Haley there was no attempt really to have well balanced sound with bass meds and highs you know there was no real mixing board kind of thing going on he he is was crucial to that event and crucial to any for any festival you've ever seen you're going to great woods you ever go to Foxboro see a band well what which is in there invented by that guy that was on the on the radio on WBZ thank you very much for van with us Michael lacking it is not a perfect guy but he made some real good choices it means which eyes runny Riccio's chipmunk he tapped on the shoulder and said Hey you have to be the MC which I think is a dream job maybe it was stressful at the time but imagine being the guy to make those announcements it's on the movie you in the middle of that maelstrom there is a mean bill bill the scientist I like to talk to in person sometime can't you couldn't really hear very well for that I apologize six one seven two five four ten thirty we'll move right along now listen there was a big rally up in New Hampshire no New Hampshire damn new Hempstead Donald Trump was up there people wait in line for a long time just like with a good start we will wait never in line for for a long time for that to kind of a different event certainly and I don't know why you would it take a lot for me to wait in line for something camp hope for something they're not many things that I would camp out for I do remember there was some sort of events to make like a Supreme Court case if I could get into a big Supreme Court case focus in the front row the Supreme Court all right sit inside the Supreme Court during a big case I wait in line I I do I can't overnight for that if if they were giving away free first class flights to somewhere I'd I'd wait in the in line for that as long as it wasn't in the hot sun question is what is something you wait in line for it actually wait in line for like four hours or maybe even camp out what would you wait in line for the one seventy five for ten thirty WBZ they wait in line to see the president good for them I mean is the president I remember I am a we're going to see Ted Kennedy when he was in Rochester New Hampshire I when Saddam I want this kind of dates me I went inside Alan the shepherd with my father one of my first memories actually he was in Terry New Hampshire what would you what is something that you would wait in line for would camp out for would you care about is the leads up on if there was a reunion maybe any bands you if you would camp out for six one seven two five four ten thirty let's take a break and open it up after this two things operate congresswoman's Rasheeda to leave of Michigan on the on more of Minnesota apparently will not be visiting Israel anytime soon Israel's prime minister after earlier saying he'd be okay with that visit is not now after hearing from president.

"WBZ so it's the sixteenth Friday the sixteenth which puts us right squarely in the middle of the anniversary of the fiftieth anniversary of Woodstock nineteen sixty nine I guess that this will be Saturday the middle day I'm thinking and we are very fortunate to have another key player somebody that that couldn't happen with if he wasn't involved bill Henley thanks for being with us great to be working thank you now have a quote here from Michael Lang this as I was trying to find someone who could use a sound system for Woodstock there was no one would ever done anything like that before that's Michael Lang he says there was this crazy guy in Boston you might want to take a shot at it thanks as they spoke at length eleven feeling that Hanley understood the herculean task at hand he points out that in those days you couldn't rent systems they needed to be built from scratch so bill thanks for being with us and maybe you can help us understand the herculean task at hand well I don't think it was sort herculean but that was my work the society was to make large events happen well audio lives can you talk a little brilliantly okay you were just doing their job now before we Michael talks about that meeting with you can you talk about your life up to that meeting he grew up around here Anya you know we've set some some got interested in this I will always fascinated by why someone chooses the path and how they happened upon this is Pat how did you happen upon this path that's a good question are you interested in the audio and they'll do I found it make like they do in this field and nobody wanted to do big events and the ones that would damage is done with colon said people would come in an old hello and they say hello and that they heard it the sound was working and then left it I spent a lot of time around Matt Boston gardens and I get interested in the fact that nobody seems to care about it and I thought this would be a good contribution to society and to make these things work out happened well audio lives on the nobody else was doing this thing I went to New York for mass who did most of stuff on Broadway and they weren't interested in sound associates no everybody was in the dorm churches factories and small theatres most often the go ahead well that changed I guess when the Beatles showed up because they were so huge and in my understanding is that you couldn't even hear the band and and that's why they need guys like you what that's true the Beatles I did and that was the screen was so loud you couldn't hear the sound system but a couple years ago a couple of guys call me to musicians that were up on the top balcony and they could hear the bear which amazed me because I couldn't hear anything but in two thousand young lady screen in my year and but I get into it before that with George we in the Newport when they were having a lot of trouble in nineteen if the seven or so and I went to I heard there was trouble when they turn the stage around or not yeah I'd stays around the face towards the grandstand and then the sound ricocheted off but we strive and the musicians crazy trying to hear one another and the right kind of thing George windows one story bill at the time and I went check that out if someone has a from New York and I went to the story but alone try to get it and and when the show happened I went down there to see what was going on exactly and I yeah but actually you know I'm behind the console the guy that brought some big speakers that was dealt socialized this is a typical way of say hello that's the sound system works delay there yeah and other than my king was done with a few microphones and trying to do stereo recording at the time and so I did that for a couple years and then George actually you do a show George shearing bride could root for across the street from the music all excuse me and then now I took it over let's see right about that time I went up into the big show at pleasure island prove myself yeah and then took over Newport sound reinforcement when I called it that because that's what I look at it trying to enhance musically what was going on out of the audience as a last see my house and nobody I was doing that couldn't get any worker York they didn't care about it didn't want to bother with it they had their Broadway shows to deal with and yes I took it over and does that tell I proceed along on the folk festival Stodden I recording companies weren't paying attention to George and turning his microphone a lot when the when the songs with being played they would go up and check the microphone to the next group would be kind enough and they forget to turn his microphone on because they were more interested in the recording it than they were in the show so I got to do the recording at that four track and that sh how it's progressed a long track okay a technological stru struggles are challenges did you have so you you needed to build new equipment new cabinets new amplifiers from scratch right in you you know you probably have a trial and error and and you probably had to find the right materials can you talk a little bit about that the technological development well I had built speakers that we could take a pot because we didn't own a truck at the time of trying to think of the guy's name Paul Klipsch from the Midwest was building one of the whole and strong range so you get a better low frequency response from the sounds of much good base and that's where we started getting bigger speakers and then as of he Sherman cell do you understand the calls up because television acumen after the wall all the engineers went to work on television in and building high all my fidelity amplifiers shot sure Natchitoches the best names in the market place in that time and I just started building on who call me in the mall and com with which you thirty seven Pontiac in sixteen loudspeakers on top of it talk with them I was soon radio on repairing television repair get interested in that kind of thing in making that happen with high fidelity line a high degree of the television and so that a long George and his problems and I we're told that the night don't my own mixes and stuff car amplifiers and found mac was make a better one that I could make the time Senate specifications all the rest of them were pretty poor compared to that one so we decided to take that on exclusive power source only a partial with talking with speaking with bill Henley sound is an excellent start and we need to break and at what upon returning from the break we will start to get into the wood stock event and I would like to hear the the long form story of your involvement like how how early did you get their due what what did you have to specifically designed for Woodstock and answer I'm sure he went out there and saw the lay of the land and how did you take the shape of that room so to speak or that field and how did that factor into your design up all that kind of stuff hopefully we get to after this on WBZ James.

"To five targus is not just yet rockets fifteenth is coming up and isn't that let's see anniversary Woodstock right thanks now we have a guest in here who is a very interesting story one interesting book at least down and two and maybe another one on the way you'll understand in a moment we had John Cain on sometime ago and he mentioned a guy who had put together the sound system for which stocking and mention that we should at some point do special hopeful thing on that and we're gonna get into that but in the process of making that book he got involved in making this spectacular coffee table Woodstock book pilgrims avoid stock and it's just come out today John Cain thanks for being with us thank you so much brother really appreciate the opportunity to be here and to enjoy the show a lot thanks thank you so first of I like to say I don't even own a coffee table so again as a coffee I think it's because bank that's right so there's an interesting story of how this particular book came to be and it's probably going to take some time and we have plenty of that so go ahead well as you mentioned I'm a local guy I grew up in Somerville and Tom are proud of that and I I currently live in New Hampshire and I'll try to summarize as best as possible but so I finished my doctoral dissertation in two thousand fourteen my dissertation was on a guy by the name of bill Henley of Medford Massachusetts bill is known as the father festival sound was a doctorate in leadership studies and disruptive technology okay yeah I mean really I have no interest in studying leadership of from a six from a successful perspective more of an underdog Chris perspective those who failed with went on to two basic things it's more interesting to me and him the comfort that secretary and I was his first name bill Hamm hill Bill Haley from Medford Massachusetts Jeff it has some truck was at four thirty sounds street there's a Dunkin donuts there now and other rightfully so as you shop he had a son shot him a sound what was who what what did he do well well I'll explain bill didn't invent amplifiers speakers microphones but will bill did that was significant was he took basic public address systems at low for life music settings and introduced systems of sound that created a tipping point can shift for the quality clarity Intel drill and intelligibility of live music otherwise don't sound reinforce some reinforcement which you know seems kind of ridiculous right it's still a very young industry when you really think about it and bill introduced well I should say the construct in a simple way is to say that he took cinema sound of those large speaker system voice of the theater speakers he took hi fi equipments McIntosh amplifiers other amplifiers used for home hi fi use the microphones from recording and radio and when he does that and puts them together in multiples he then creates a system of sound a sound system and he begins this at Newport in nineteen in the late nineteen fifties Newport jazz beginning in jobs and as the music business it wasn't really an industry quite yet and it develops and grows and also a demand for better sound grows and there's Hamley right right right they're working with I mean he was out some of the most seminal musical events in American popular culture history when filling those electric families at the console when you know the jazz and folk festivals that happened in new port that legacy from nineteen fifty seven all the way through nineteen sixty seven moving on to the biggest and the biggest most significant of pop the schools to occur on American soil from Atlanta Atlanta pop to Woodstock and the moving forward and especially there's one the transcontinental pop festival festival expresses another real notable one is a lot of other smaller festivals and he did but it was the golden age of rock and pop vessels were Hamley was up in the mix so anytime anyone goes to a big concert with big sound they owe it to him they to him and there were others but it wasn't and in the chapter of the book I call the competition and I I couldn't really find a better way the title that chapter excuse me of because it really wasn't competition there were very few people doing it on a national level level there a couple in California there's one in Nebraska and this is the first generation sound engineer first generation some company as I defined it in the book these are first generation style live sound engineers for the concert industry what do you use for equipment I mean you will get into it a little bit yeah but can you get into it more yeah in the early days bill was using what was available to him there wasn't much available so there are no Marshall amps at the time well we'll keep bands would plug into Marshall okay for application or not there was none the Marshall people didn't make huge thing Marshall Jim Marshall a Marshall but that was all not too much but that those Marshall and from where it was a U. K. product then that there was a another guy in the U. K. Charlie walk ins that build the whim systems which would come would tour with the who the Hamley remembers them coming through in single systems we often said that they were very loud and thought didn't really give a lot of throw up but we'll bills using early on let's say for the Beatles tour in nineteen sixty six which he did fourteen dates for I should mention of he did the the decibels the screaming girls are screaming fans that were generating hi yes be SPL levels he could not overcome that with the equipment he had he was using amplifiers from battleships RCA amplifiers of microphones that weren't the S. M. fifty eights that were so common we use now for rock and roll that was way before and you know equipment primitive equipment to a primitive technologies that bill was discovering that were suitable for the time and then as time went on he started to create its own speaker cabinets in cinema sound is is an amazing thing when you look at the quality of sound in early cinema and then when television comes in a lot of that sort of all those theaters are closing down bill was requiring that equipment so voice in the theater speakers were huge proponent for Haley to get that throwing needed from dissertation on this and you want to do a book in you have well together a book well my dissertation it was very it was heavy repair really researched and wasn't really like readable it was it was a good reference book you know what but it wasn't a story it wasn't really that to that level and I had a former professor of mine come back in two thousand fifteen so Hey I want to work with you and help you and and get this thing out there into readable manuscripts so he said re write it and then come back with me and will will read it line by line paragraph by paragraph together in this is Mike former professor Alan Diaz he's just been a a mentor of mine to make it takes a village he helped me out a great deal I'm not a an English major I'm a historian of a researcher so but my primary goal was to make sure that all those interviews and all that research was immersed into into a textual form where people could read it as a story as it hasn't had a clear narrative so it was a it was an adventure I'm Hamleys life is a series of adventures to me the rockets good rock and roll of ventures but also told a very important thing about how sound was developed for the live concerts and live outdoors somehow in the process of that book this would start work was terminated can tell that yeah yes so when during my research for Hamley specifically on what's document Hamleys culminating performance was his his development of a one of the largest sound systems ever occur on a festival field was at Woodstock you know big speakers so amplification and and and you have ten thousand watts of power which is whole heart for the talk to seem like a lot now but I would constantly be researching trying to find the stunned engineer in the in the mix of the of the crowd you know there are lots of people of these mass gatherings and I came upon a collection of photographs of that I thought were worthy to further evaluate in my search for handling he thought that maybe this collection of photographs would contain photographs of Hanley you could use it had a book that I could use my family okay correct yep and when you know the folks know me in the field now I I'm I'm friends with the museum up about the woods I have friends that are in the tech field of this technology so you someone said Hey John changes his collection you know I looked at it and I thought well this is this is probably something worth checking out so I I purchased the collection and in like an estate sale yeah it was bought from the state of a a now deceased photo journalist named Richard bell act of from Brooklyn New York is a state sat for two years he committed suicide very sadly ands that was bought in bid on by a Long Island a states by a company you know they would buy out the states and let me tell you well I have other collections and he was an African art dealer who was much more to this than not but the Woodstock collection really stood out to me because I'm a wood stalk someone of Woodstock scholar and historian and so you did you buy directly from them or did you him or did you that is stated you have to buy from the secondary I heard about it from the second I can purchase a with negatives and right right use and all that yeah and I thought it was a good investment I mean I took a chance and then after finding out that Hanley was not in it but is is platform you Hanley sat out seventy five feet stage left into the field if it if it was raining he would pull this queen the polyurethane sheeting over got a good shot of him well I I think it's a good shot of him but I got a good shot of the mixing platform like well okay this collection what am I gonna do with it so as this is happening I'm sending out of my manuscripts in proposals to various of published publishers mostly academic publishers because that's what my background is in and you know a series of rejection letters are pouring into my into my into my email and you know one of them came back and said Hey you know we really like what you wrote about him only but would you consider writing a book about Woodstock for the fiftieth anniversary and I of course said yes what I I didn't really know what it would be about but because of my connections in the field I knew I had access to interviews of attendees and production people and then I thought well what about a book there are tons of books on would start out there take your pick you know and I really thought about was a something wanted to create a book about Woodstock when there are I have all the when there's all these other books in Woodstock but I thought well what about a book that really just focused on the audience I could use the Bella collection because the Bella collections unique in that way that it just focuses on the youth culture that emerged on that on the Oscars fields the for those three or four days so you actually interviewed a bunch of attendees forty and then I chose thirty of the best attendees.
