"Too. Like, what do you mean from your starts in ten minutes? I remember theme. And yeah, that's how a bird groups came together at the last second. I'll tell you what. All right, so our question, which we will reveal, this half hour, if you don't get it, though, I have a feeling we're going to have a winner. This became very popular in the 1960s then faded into almost obscurity but is now making a comeback. What is it? Karen in Chicago wants some guesses, so what do you think, Karen? Okay, we've got three of them. Pocket radio. Nope. Skateboards? Nope. Scooter. Nope. Oh boy. Can I ask you what's the name of that first Bobby womack song in play for mark to identify? Oh, the one that was not looking for out looking for a love. I'm looking for a level. The valentiner Valentine is a notion I can escalate and play the whole thing. Absolutely. And play the Valentina play the Valentino's version two and then decide which one you like better. Okay. Thank you. All right, thanks for calling. How about great night? All right, so 888-876-5593. And before we get to Gary in his charts, John in Covington has some guesses. What do you think John? Hey, rally. Good morning. I am going to say an aquarium. Not an aquarium. Okay. What do 1960 TV trivia please? Okay, and I had a question right here and now and now it's gone the way of all flesh. Let me see if I can't find it again here. I'm not sure what I did that made it disappear, but it's gone now, but I'll find it. I know I will. So find everything else. Why not this? All right. I'm going to have to actually hunt for it, but I can hunt for it. Let's see. All right. All right, you're right, right. Here we go. So we're going to talk 1967 because that's the year that the television show debuted. It did very well, but not in its first year. And it was a desilu show too. All right? And the original title was going to be intertect, but they changed it. And the theme was going to be computer based, which the first year there was a lot of that, but they decided that's too high-tech. They changed that too. And wound up with a hit on their hands. What was the show? It ran from 67 to 75. And that first season, 67 and 68, like I say, it was planned to be called intertect, but they changed that in the last minute, but the story, though, revolved around someone ignoring computer solutions and all that kind of stuff and doing it his own way. Well, it didn't do too well. And they finally decided it was Lucille Ball, along with the producer of the show, said, we've got to make some changes. And so they got rid of the computers and all that kind of stuff and made it more mass appeal. But intertek and the character, by the way, in the first episode of season two, explains why he quit interdict. Is it mammoth? Yes, it is. It absolutely is manics. You're a 100% right. Thank you. Yeah, all right. We have a winner. Hang on, don't go away. All right, so it's absolutely right. It's Maddox. And yeah, the deal of that was the mannix was always a detective, but originally he was working for inter tech and this was a company that had all the solutions based on computers and he just basically ignored them in one anyway and that was the theme, but it didn't do that very well. So then they said, let's make it more of a standard detective drama. And so it was that man success loyal secretary, who was Gail Fisher, the actress in Peggy fair the character. She was actually one of the first black actors to have a regular series role. We're working at it. And 8 seasons total. So it did well. Single camera set up, done at desilu. Initially, and then it moved out paramount for the other years. So 8 8 8 7 6 5 5 9 three. Before we get to charts, Howard and Glenn Dale heights. What do you think? How are you tonight? All right, how about yourself, Howard? I'm pretty good. My John sounded like he's getting back to normal, so that's good. Yeah, as far as it'll be a full year probably before physically he will be. But certainly as far as I'm concerned, he's doing just great. So we just pray there won't be a recurrence. Yes. That's a great thing. Anyway, backstory to my guests, we were just talking about this Sunday. Yeah. And I used to go every Sunday to hit sale and go slut car racing. Yes. Before I got my license in 68. You're a 100% right. That's what it was. I used to go all the time too. And there were over 2700 slot car tracks in America. And it was usually high. Yeah, sometimes it was a bowling alley of a very often it was just a hobby store, whatever, but 2700 that were devoted to slot car tracks. And I loved them. Yeah, I grew up in owners, and there was a big one in the other in the south side of town. We used to go to install racially. It was in the basement right by their trade station and in sale. Oh, and they were just, they were just wonderful. Well, recently in Germany, they had multiple teams of slot car racer setting the world record for the longest route ever covered. They raced for 60 hours and covered 2463 miles of track. Wow. And today they're still making them for home use

"WGN such a great song in such a bad recording of it. I've got to upgrade that on this computer, but still ernestine was a fine record that Johnny just mentioned. And so to go back to our discussion oh man, that takes back what memories with that song. I don't know is something about 1963. There was just a lot of really good stuff back there. Oh, I agree wholeheartedly. And you know, as far as I'm concerned, it was the last good year. Of course, the British invasion. And I realized that music historians consider that early 60s to be nothing but pablum and all that, but I'll tell you, I thought these records were just terrific and some great production values too. Yeah, yeah, I do. You know, back in those days too, if you didn't get one of those records when they came out, they'd be gone from the storage. You're just going to have to search everywhere to find well, right, because most of the places we're buying, they were just racked, so a rack jobber would deliver what they were going to, and that'd be it. Yeah, I mean, it took me forever to find a copy of that Bobby womack in the van Valentina sar, I'll make it all right. It was years before they ever got that on a CD. I thought they never would, but they finally did. Yeah, the longer we live, the more we get because they run out of other stuff. So they'll put things they never otherwise would have considered onto CDs. Some of which they really should have kept buried, but occasionally it'll be things like I'll make it all right, which Curtis wrote, of course. And it is just a wonderful, a wonderful song, but I don't think that ernestine is on a CD. I could be mistaken. I don't think it is either. I don't think that made the cut either. Because there was a couple of there was a sar of little box set. Sam Cooke's picture on it. And I don't know if that was two CDs are not high 5. I did get it. It was released in an early 90s. And that's when I was really disappointed that the Valentino's I'll make it all right was not on there. And then they released another SARS, this was just a CD, but I don't think ernestine was on there either. I've got this 45 and it's not, I mean, this is better than not having it at all. Yeah, it's on soulful kind of ladies volume one. Oh, it is on a CD? Well, yes, but not a CD of hers and one of those compilation CDs that has some baby Washington and a bunch of other the only killers. Is that an import? Yeah, it's obviously somebody's boot and God knows, but I'm trying to I think the label was like popcorn records or something. Oh, speaking of bad quality CDs, I got one that I'm getting ready to send back. I found one on the radiance. Oh yes, yes, during the Leonard. The quality is terrible, but I mean, even the good stuff sounds terrible. It was all mastered off of record. I mean, it's terrible. Well, you know, some of the message off of records I prefer because they don't mess with the production values of it, but yeah, the radians during the Leonard casting days like it ain't no big thing, that's my favorite. So I'm wondering if I'm pretty sure that was on here. But I mean, it was obviously a bootleg or something. I bought it through Amazon. What was it that ultimate collection, those 29 cuts? It just says, baby, you got it. Radiance and it was on a Titanic labeled. No, no, they have ultimate collection of 29 cuts of the radiance on Amazon. And you might say, but it was. I think it was Titanic, so I'll bet you it's the same thing. It's this purple and pink. Yes, yes, yes, that's it. Well, I've got it in my hand and I got what I wanted off of it, but it was, I mean, the audio is just off, that's so sorry. I hate to hear that. You know, because you don't know why they never legitimately put anything out on. Well, again, I think that it's only when they're going deeper into catalogs that they find a reason to do this. It's our music, but it's not what somebody would consider to be commercially attractive, where we salivate for it, but we'd be a small cadre of people. Yeah. I mean, some of the stuff on there I wasn't really happy with, but it got down to about track number 27, and then it started skipping and going crazy. Oh, yeah. Well, you know, of course, because those are the ones that are closer to the outside of the CD and CD rot will take care of that in short order. One of them that was pretty good was the last track called, I don't want to face the truth. That was pretty good. Okay. I'd never heard it before. Yeah, I have, but don't want to face the truth. And that, oh God, that was later. And I'm trying to think it was on Twilight. It was not a chess record. Oh, really? It was a flip side, the a side was my sunshine girl. And this was 71. So I think Leonard cast and junior was already gone and my sunshine. Okay, that was the a side. And the B side was don't want to face the truth. Yeah. Well, even the good ones like the hold ons and the shy guy and all that. It was totally mono and crackled and popped and that's unfortunate because, you know, you can make good bootleg CDs. It is a shame that somebody didn't go to the trouble to do that. Now, no, not really.

"Of the way first. So Johnny, welcome back to WGN radio. Well, watch good to be here. Very good to be here. How are you tonight? I can't complain. Good. Sounds like you had a better day today. John's doing better. And it sounds fine. And we all have better days than others. Exactly right. Yeah, I got a little good news today. I'll send you an email. They didn't go anywhere else. So I assume that good. So on another note, I was listening to TJ's call and I was a big Percy Mayfield fan on the represent invitation and the flip side on tangerine call baby please. Yes. That was more bluesy, but the rivers invitation that he wanted to hear was one of my favorites. I got to 45 on it. Oh, and speaking of, maybe it was 63 or 62. Do you remember a song by patience Valentine called ernestine? Yes. I would really like to hear that one. And that just popped into my head, right then, and he probably remembered. Yeah, that was on SAAR, wasn't it? Yeah. Okay. Yeah, that's probably. I think this was not a true live recording, but it sounded really good. It was released and I believe 63 again by Lloyd price called misty and it comes in like it's a live performance introducing the dynamic personality mister Lloyd price. Right. Yeah, I played that on KJ. Oh, that's a great sign. I don't think it was a real live recording. I think they just did that in the studio. I think so too. Yeah, but either one of those, that's forgotten about ernestine and there was another SARS song that was so hard to find for so long it was by Bobby womack and what the heck was the name of it now? Oh, I'll make it all right. Oh no, it's a Valentino's and bob. I'll make it all right. Exactly. Yeah. Okay. I can do that. I just had a bunch of them just come to mind right there. Everything's doing well. Good. And how scary doing? You guys? Dealing with everything else she's fine. They had a time. Absolutely. That's all we get. Yeah, doing a lot of research. There was a study that came out on there's been many studies, but I got this off of a website that somewhat was telling me about called epic times. Oh yeah, I'm a subscriber. So am I? Okay, 99 bucks a year. If I'm spending 99 bucks a year, you know that I must really want to read it. It's really good. It's not all kind of stuff in it. And it's even they've got a TV channel and all this. Yes, yes. You betcha. Anyway, so I've had it about a week now, but I was over there to their health section yesterday and there was a story about prostate cancer that was just it was done in a study done in the UK and it was just released a couple of days ago. Hang on a minute, don't go away. You're gonna leave it right there and we'll pick it up right after the news right here on WGN radio

"It was like and i'm a west coast. Do so when. I first heard ray kwan and goes face i'm like god damn day killing it. I mean that album for me. I love that album. That's just like certain albums you know. When i first heard quicks first album you know but demule dimuro's can hear it around the country outcast when you hear all of these different things at that time you know like damn you. It was just so much music for that decade along and so a lot of that music was truly the soundtrack of you know my adolescence in up to so you've been making music all through the nineties. I hadn't been making music. But i've been you know you know. I've always loved music always so i was wrapping early nineties. Free style in writing here and there but nothing to the degree of body ended up late nineties my writing ability. Immediate be able to go into you know star going and dabbling here and there were different. You know writing songs sitting down. But i'd always you know love music. I knew how to play trombone. Knew how to play trumpy. Since i was in middle school so the first person ever introduced me to music was my mother you know. She played throughout the churches. As i was real real real young and chicago and i remember you know i remember. We was very very young and she would just pull up and she could just start playing the piano. And i said why momma. How do you know which to play. Well as my soul. I hearing so i swear you know now looking back. I realized that my momma didn't know how to read music. She played it by ear so she played oregon and she would put it. just play. and my momma. How do you know which one i used to always ask my mother that and she just play by ear and so whenever our by the time you know i will go into band class. I started playing trombone always had i. Share always battled everybody in one first year so from there. I learned my boy. He was showing me. Abc allah keys trumpet. And so i just picked up trumpet naturally. So i'm always loved music and then you know in that time in an area you know you had to black sheep and you know what i'm saying. You know you had lost boys. You had all of these different groups coming from east to west and so dj was real big back then and so my stepfather. He had all of these records. I mean tons of records bobby. Womack brenton wood percy sledge. Hell melvin a blue nose betty right just all of these records and may god forgive me. I used to take his records you. I'm in their plans scratching them up. And so you know i. I've always loved music. Always a shame when you say that they'd like rap used to have so much more of a reason to be concerned with what came before it you know both because like at in one thousand nine hundred ninety. It's easier for people to remember music before rap but then also just the fact that you know sampling was huge now. Nobody wants to use the samples because they want all the money from the records and stuff like that said. I mean when. I'm saying these records and i'm saying is i'm live. I'm literally. I could see all the memories with it. As i'm saying you know you gotta imagine when ill mattie came out. Was that ninety ninety. Two or ninety four. I think it was ninety two. I think it was early. Nineties real well when ill matic just imagine ill matty. I'm listening. Ill matic incompetent. So you know i had homey. They plan sell sale. They got i got home. He's playing you know m. c. eight and i love him. See a compass warning. And i'm playing cosmo's warning i'm playing. I'm playing all of this. But i'm play. Ill matic wolfgang. I'm playing biggie. On playing jay z's reasonable doubt so my influence from both sides was just like damn. Because i love soulful music that a lot of those samples had from the east coast. And i love the that was here on the west coast in so it was just like. Is this musical thing for me. I've always loved music period for sure. So i'm sure that like the nineties before you actually got signed and all that. I'm sure it wasn't all smooth. Sailing was was a ups and downs during that time period. Definitely man it was a lot of ups and downs. You know at that time. My mother ended up moving from sitting in elm and we moved to tamarin. And you know from at that time. I really just got into you. Know stealing cars in you. Know you know went you know went to you know. What is that juvenile hall a few times or whatever and then by the time. My mother moved on competent in iran. Be i was just full blown. Just pretty much in the streets at that time so When i look back at that time there was a lot of good times but it was. It was a lot of bad times to seeing different loved ones that you know getting killed different people inside of the drug business fighting just different type of thing. You see wars breaking out throughout compton. Big hood wars breaking out so content in those days in at time era you know debt music was the soundtrack for a lot of our lives but a lot took place you know during that time you know you look back in early nineties in during that rodney king situation in all of that that happened you know. The whole unrest took and broke over the city. You think a lot of this music was the backdrop today. So i'm looking back at that and i'm looking back through that whole decade then when you have the d. Mx is come along and you know. God bless today of man i mean. Dms so many of us loved the amax. you know He was just man just. He spoke to buy him being from there. He spoke to many dues on the west coast. In a way that hadn't been spoken. I think for you know by a lot of different artists east coast. That's why he so loved here. Yeah energy that sort of wimpy on what coast from. You'd never heard something like that. Yeah you never. It was like a bomb dropped at first albums it was like a bomb dropped all over the city. They was just playing are never forget man. I'm like i never forget. I had a thirty two ounce magnum in mom used. I may you dead new. Mx his whole album. And i remember we just played it back to back to back to back. We sit rolling blunts and we just like damn who is is and we. I remember when we are seen and we was like. where's he from. Where's he we didn't know where he was from. You know we were so young and then we found out eventually from new york. He's like we had higher than that like you. At so many people would be like fake angry on songs. Yeah but then you had him whereas they really felt the sadness and you know it was deep deep zog forget and then the second album so when you looking at that time when you look at masterpiece in that era in all of the music out of that you know that time through from the south he was one of those engineers out of the south that made music that was relatively relative to a lot of west coast dudes and the lifestyle that they live was almost a lot similar to a lot of ours and is just so dope how he was able to integrate it and make it happen then show so many dues entrepreneurial spirit and his understanding the dynamics of you know him being assad to gain from independent standpoint and understanding how to monetize in a way that hadn't been seen before. Where were you during the riots memories yet. I remember exactly where i was back then. Downtown on compton boulevard. there was a circuit city. So when the rise. I broke out What is this occasion or leander. There was a store on the left hand side. And i never forget. My mom's had hornet and we went inside of the store. Man i never forget. I must've took almost a whole crater beer. And put it in the back of their then. We went to another store. We put different food in there. Then we went to another liquor store so in the home. He's told me. Oh we go over here hit circuit city but they had they had bolted it up and everything like that so i remember company was on fire ryan down counter boulevard. You've seen everything on fire. Just i never forget that. Did it feel like the destruction in your own community did feel revenge on the police looking back at it. In hindsight it was revenge into police. You know you know at.

Where even though it wasn't good it was a way for me to express myself and talk about what i was dealing with emotionally. When it was easy for me to actually verbalize it but in music people listen to. He was good that they will give you criticism and some would be just straight up bro. You wet and as i hear. I hear uganda something with this and that you should just kind of keep going and there was a time where i was totally not in my lane by with everybody else wrapping his one. Ozk on my blog told look you fifteen years old rep about which you know as a fifteen year old. Start trying to wrap up. What you hear everybody else do. That was kind of the beginning of me finding that transparency. I needed to just grow as artists hand to talk about what i know in hope you can relate to and it's going i think it's important to know what he just said to just being authentic. Bu and writing things that you know firsthand experiences whatever may be because people can really relate to that when it goes music. Yeah so there's a thing about music where there's a superhero aspect to it right. Where you can. You can write glamorous of yourself when when people see you out and about they're gonna know how are they going to see. You not gonna feel like that every all the time every day. No one necessarily does and so by being people. The approach is more humid. And not this facade.

"Great Sam Cooke. Change is going to come indeed. You know, he recorded that song just before his death, and Bobby Womack and Lou Rawls heard it. Before it was released. They were with Sam Cooke shortly before he was murdered. And they said they had an eerie feeling about that song that an eerie feeling it was released just after his passing, and it is As pertinent today as it is nearly 60 years later, Welcome back to keep up alive with Reverend Jesse Jackson. I am Santy to Jackson.

Their response has been to respond to these issues directly. On. Do you know we've got to talk about that There was a stimulus package that was gotten through just before President Trump left, and it was going to boost the fortunes of HBC used by more than $1 billion for with infrastructure breaks. That's a good thing, but we've got a lot more work to do. Reverend Jackson and you and David Daley collaborated on a piece that's going to be out in USA Today. This week. David Daley, Why did you speak to that? Good morning, everybody. Um just you know what we wanted to do was make the case for why the reforms in before the People act are so important and How meaningful they would be in solving real world problems and the problems that we're about to be seeing over the next couple of years because As all of the things we're talking about are unfolding in Washington, where Democrats hold a big try Specter what we're already seeing out of state legislatures around the country in Georgia, Texas and Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and In Michigan and in Arizona. Our efforts once again to make it harder for people to vote to add additional barriers to put Hands on drop boxes to require voter idea if you're voting by mail to roll back a lot of the new vote by mail provisions that were instituted in 2020, because Of the pandemic, even in Georgia, where the secretary of state who's whose record on voting rights is Nick's but who was hailed for standing up to the president of the United States when he tried to Force and to find 11,000 more votes someplace, right? Uh, the Republicans and Georgia's Legislature. Someone happy about this that they're talking about. Trying to eliminate the secretary of state as an elected position and make it appointed by the Republican Jerry Mander of majority. In the state Legislature. So we have got to move on federal national standards on the right to vote so that your right to vote in Florida and Texas and Georgia and Mississippi Isn't less than it is elsewhere around the country. Some of the terrific things you see in HR one. A required two weeks of early voting. In every state. A requirement that They're being equal equitable number. Was polling places and voting machines available in every neighborhood. You would have automatic voter registration, Same day voter registration, online voter registration and immediate end to felony disenfranchisement of blood on this country, which again dates back to the Jim Crow days. And end to the voter purge is that we have seen in so many states that disproportionately affect voters of color and also a requirement that independent commissions are used. To redraw congressional district around the country, which right now Republicans have a big advantage on this, and they have Jerry Mander those lines. To their advantage in such a way that if the Democrats don't act right now, It is entirely entirely possible that redistricting alone hands Republicans back the U. S House. In 2022. Uh, we're from Jackson. There's a lot that people it seems like we have to do a whole lot of things all at once. Reference, Uh, do you think we should be talking about that All of that, Even I mean, uh, we should be having that conversation as well. I mean, Raphael Warnock seat is up in 2022. He's running for reelection about Frank's number, 11,000, both George and the other boats. Do it again. Mom attack, right, Reverend, I think And you want him to do that? Because you know as we look We continue to let you in, You know A and it turns out that Joe Biden's when was narrower than Hillary Clinton's right. Please explain. Well, we have an electoral college vote if you win the most votes in the state, then uh, the combined total of your state You're U. S representatives and your two senators equals the electoral college votes. And so those votes are then. Certified by the state legislature by the signed by the governor passed on to the Congress, which is what was happening on January 6th. The Congress was certifying. What the state had certified in terms of the electoral college votes. So if you take the difference in the votes for Biden and Trump in three states, Georgia, Wisconsin and Arizona, which was roughly and leave 12,000 and Georgia. I think 20,000 and Wisconsin and 11,000 and Arizona If you somehow switched. Those are ad 40 You know, 1000 votes in each of those for trump more than what Biden has. We wind up with a 2 69 vote tie in terms of the Electoral college. Because Maine and Nebraska award their electoral college votes on the basis of whoever wins the district congressional district. On and Trump won in Maine, but he lost in the second district in Nebraska. So Hey, one by 22,000 votes so that like Combination of those Three states, plus a second district in Nebraska. Total 65,000 votes, and that's actually how many votes put Biden over not the seven million votes plus that we talked about, just like it was 77,000 votes that put Biden over in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin in 2016, not the 2.86 million popular votes that Hillary lost by In 2016. Let me through to other numbers out there really quick if I could, um Because Frank's analysis is his absolutely right on. Um it's not on Lee that a seven million margin Victory in the national Popular vote can be erased that easily by the structure of the electoral college. But Democrats have a 50 50 tie in the U. S. Senate with Republicans, except those Democrats represent 41 million more people than the 50. Republicans. 41 million more people, um and you know, say that one more time. Say that 15 Democratic U. S. Senators represent 41 million more people. On the 50 Republican U. S senators. So there is a huge structural imbalance in the U. S senate..

The guy who wrote the song that went number ninety four for the black artists or the guy that hits number one for the white artists making the most money. So yeah so it's like he's basically they're both they're both fighting the civil rights struggle in their own way in their own way. And here's the thing like you've got you've got malcolm x.

A white man is writing a song about the struggle that you should be writing and it's like that did kind of like and that's one of those things i think in the back in the recesses of sam cooke brain like he knew the that's the song that he should have been writing you know he's writing like all these fucking like justin bieber songs where it's all about love love love and all this bullshit right and it's like you should be writing these songs.
