The several of them have left because of the pandemic several of them have left for private agencies where they could get an easier job and a better pay so that makes More holes to cover for it so to speak so for their an interest and they've been forced to force the nurses to stay shifts. I very often during the weekends and evenings. So this is Making the life of the the nurses very difficult you come in. And you don't know when you come out you say that some nurses are leaving for better pay with private agencies. What does that say about the salaries of nurses in the public system. While i'd say that we're not competitive with the private sector and There was a better maybe a retirement plan and stuff like that but the nurses are are looking at short term now. They really are fed up with the system and the fed up with the way The way they have to work On top of their normal shifts so The the salary is better shirts.

Yesterday that quebec's emergency rooms are stressed. The minister also said he was meeting with directors of of regional health authorities. Who are trying to come up with long term and short term solutions. What do you think those solutions should look like. I think it shook obliged the private agencies to cover on the nights evenings and weekends So that are more on. Vertical hours are covered This is where the problem is mostly a this moment because nurses do like to to work on day shifts during the week They have families they have kids at school and stuff so It was hours more easy to cover but they the off hours of. They're very hard to coverage. So that's why. I think that this is the obliged to to work on those hours if they come from an agency. How many of your own colleagues have you lost a to other agencies who are paying better conditions. Are how the problem and just to make that tear. We're not talking about additions at all. We're talking about nurses and with three therapists. Mostly we lost forty percent of our nurses that left. They were left for private agencies in the last year. We lost several hundreds of nurses more hospital. So you see the magnitude of the problem. It's it's huge We lost thirty percent of those to retirement or either early or scheduled retirement and all this is another area where to the government should do something to to prevent the nurses that want to stay longer after their retirement. Deal forced to leave. How much has the problem of people who have been waiting to go into hospital during the pandemic. How much has not exacerbated things. I don't think has exacerbated too much to the situation because we see what we saw before we do see some patients that have the cancer. That's a little bit more advanced than it should be We see that but as far as just raw numbers as we don't that too. Many patients are coming compared to before the pandemic you talk about. The province working preventative strategy. Shouldn't this problem have been anticipated. Tackled months ago well actually years ago because we were complaining about that shorts of staff for already years but the the thing is that we haven't tackled as a problem and now it's it's much worse than it was before the pandemic Now we have like in my hospital. Twenty percent of the beds are closed because of a nursing staff a shortage. So that's a huge stress for the immersive department because we don't close and we don't have the access towards like we should have before if i'm a patient listening to you and i'm hearing you talk about exhausted and overworked hospital staff. Should i be worried about mistakes being made while you should be a worry of course and we are worried. Stuff is worried too. We certainly don't want too many accidents to happen. But it's about to happen and it will probably has already is prone to accidents. A group in the youth away is now asking for the red cross or even the army to be called in to help with their emergency room shortages. Would you go that far. Well before we completely shut down that. I think that's something that should be considered. Yeah good idea like we did with the pandemic with the the long term care hospitals. Or did they have to call in the army to to cover for their lack of personnel. So that i think this is not necessarily something that the government wants to do but if we are close to shutting.

We claim him here in Oklahoma and he's performing, he's had a rough year with his fiddle shop being destroyed by that terrible fire as they rebuild, and get to perform a great way to support him as to come. See them live. And we're we're, we're so excited how the awesome opportunity to, to do that. He'll perform along with steel wind. Other Oklahoma band. They're really great. And the all stars youth band will be traveling here. Some of the participants and they're a banjo band. Yes. And, and they play a lot like plectrums or four string strumming style, which is different than a lot of people think of the country. The bluegrass style the plectrums or the four string style is more like that. Jazzy style from the early nineteen hundreds, nineteen twenties. Hello, Ma baby. Hello. Hello. That's it the all star band, they'll perform as well. So that'll be going on the main stage upstairs, but then downstairs, Wayne Cantwell will be playing some, some early, Americana music from just beautiful early the feel of the Appalachia in different kinds of songs, froggy win a cordon and give you some history along with playing some really neat historic instruments now will be outside on the lawn with the kids all day, entertaining, the children and the adults with children. We've got an out all the good stuff happens. You Joe farm, I'm gonna play banjo, farm songs for them. Yes, we're going to do they get to make their own banjo. They get to take home. Get to decorate a banjo. We have sweet treats like snow cones and count and candy and all kinds of funds. Well kids under fifteen. Fifteen and under are free. That's right. So with an adult, the tickets are ten dollars for the whole thing, you get to see possibly at four bands. If you go see everything all day, long, and then and then the kids are free. So it's a lot of fun. It's we still have right now on display one of our current temporary exhibits, which is really neat. And everybody's excited about is the Kermit the frog displaying with the Jim Henson life and legacy. You can come up and see Kermit the frog puppet on display up close and personal with the banjo. They used on every episode of the muppet show that signed by all the guest stars like Julie Andrews, and Elton John, Johnny cash, and ROY Rogers and trigger. I don't know how that horse held that Ben. So it's a special thing I love getting to work with the museum. It's been such a, a gift. So hope to see everybody out there on Saturday from eleven to five is going to be a blast. Now how long have you been at the American banjo museum? Well, I've been working with them. They reached out to me a few years ago to do some different projects perform there, Steve Martin tribute show a few years ago when he was inducted into our hall of fame, and then I started doing a pick attune class for free we offer a pick attuned class. So if you've never played the banjo and you're curious about it or somebody gave you a banjo you don't know what in the world to do with it. I will teach you how to play in one hour or your money back, because it's free. So. How is that one time a month? You and it's by we do it by reservation. So you can go on our website. If you go to American banjo museum dot com on our events page, you can sign up for for the day this there we only take about five or six people so it's really intimate and they can accomplish something. We provide the banjos, you don't have to have a banjo and, and it's a lot of fun. And it's great for somebody that's kind of curious like, maybe I'd like to, we give you good banjo to play, so you can really feel what it's like a lot of people like believe become a lifetime, member of the museum to going out and buying their own banjo and, and it's a lot of fun. Did you come to play? The Ben Joe Lucas routes, man when I was a kid like Caroline. Is about his age, and I heard Kermit the frog play the rainbow connection. Yes. The muppet movie turns forty this year, I don't, but that movie does. And then I heard Kermit play the banjo the first time. And I love that instrument. And then years later, I fell in love with Steve Martin's comedy. And I wanted to learn and my wife got me tickets to see him when he started doing his bluegrass show about ten years ago when I was like, I'm going to start playing about ten years ago, I started playing the banjo like for real, and I might get good at it. If I keep trying so well on the American banjo. Museum is in the heart of brick town. I know it, we're so fortunate to have a right year in, it's the only one of the world and people in Oklahoma don't realize they're like, oh, does everybody have a banjo museum in their state? No. This is the only one in the whole world. It's so cool. People come from all of Steve Martin himself came to the Banja museum, just this past earlier this month came in breezed through took some pictures. And so we can say that he's, he's been lots of great banjo players and, and other musicians to Elton. John is walked through there and Eric Clapton people outside Oklahoma. Oh, about it. But sometimes here in the state. So Americana is a great way to come. And explore a real real beautiful thing and, and fun way to celebrate in bond with your families through music. And so, if you Google it, it's the Americana fist family music festival. Twenty seconds, twenty seconds. Yes. You be willing to show us what you might be playing with the children of on the lawn. I do a lot of silly songs and some sing alongs. I do like dueling banjos but I only play one banjo at a time. Sing-along or gets really awkward well. It's going to be awkward either way. But I have a song, I could play you're on my Honey banjo. Do you want me to do the, the beekeeper save it looks like honeybee comb? My parents, my parents are beekeepers Carlisle's grandparents are beekeepers from Meco, mink. Oh, so this is I'll do a little son of a beekeeper song for you said, okay. Please do. I was born in mink, Oaklahoma. My dad didn't have a typical job. A farming town with cows and sheep and chickens. But our lifestyle.

"Jim I at seven pm Sunday June second at two pm at Oklahoma City university in the Capac auditorium, and it is a zig field inspired extravaganza. And here with me in studio is the president of the organization. Jim Palmer, a cast member and soloist Barbara Bryant Wagner and sharing shared in. Michael who is the choreographer and director. So we mentioned a little bit of what was going to happen you all but Sheridan. I'm gonna ask you. What are some of the extravaganza numbers that forty performers that you say are going to be performing? Yes. Yes. We we have you know, few few kind of whole cast. I mean, that's the real extravaganza seeing that many performers onstage together. Another very exciting about this production, this format this follies format is we get to to perform numbers that don't really have a have a place in entertainment right now as the landscape currently exists, but this kind of old timey vaudeville shtick that is just hilarious. And then there's there's nothing like some of you may recognize Charlotte Franklin and yes. Yes. Uh-huh. Forever. Have a fantastic dare, I call it a strip tease. Sort of the opposite of that. It's a gag. They're cia. They'll be reprising that this year. Cha CHA CHA CHA. Not really words to describe it an aside from that will also have Billy thrash. Also, huge name local feeder scene. He'll be performing a showstopper from the musical. The Stephen Sondheim musical follies. I'm still here. There's one more performance that I felt mentioned earlier some of you may have heard about this the tragic fire in up in Guthrie Byron Berlin, his his shop burned down. We wanted to help support him and help him back, you know, back on track. So he'll be making a performance as well and appearance as well. How fantastic that's really something. Isn't it? In addition to the greatest opera singer in the world from Oklahoma Leona Mitchell superstar and another superstar plan, the fiddle. Byron birla. Wow, that's really fantastic. And he's got that treasured one. I'm sure you all saw that he brought out and everybody just assumed it was going to be charged any. Your heart weeping and all that stuff. So let me ask you Barbara of the cast numbers where everybody's on stage at the same time. Do you have a favorite, you know? I'm always partial to battle hymn of the Republic, and that will be one of the numbers will be doing the same arrangement of the Mormon Habur nickel choir. And that is so moving I think for anyone who loves America. And it will be awesome. I think, but there are so many that there's so many numbers in the group numbers that people will recognize those songs and probably won't to sing along with them. Are you inviting audience participation always? Well, that makes it really doesn't it. Yes. They'll be laughing so hard they won't be able to. But others. Yeah, I'm sure they want to. So are there comedians on stages? Well, oh, yes. Abso absolutely Christie. Carson. And again, like I said, Charlotte Jane hall, they always work up a funny little skit, they they've had some characters that they've actually developed for the follies over the years, and they'll be making an appearance as well. Well, you all have named some of the I'm gonna golf clamped here. Our houses of entertainment in Oklahoma City that have influenced so many young people for so long, and whether you attended oh, see you or you, you know, an Oklahoma kid or you're in one of the Christie's shows or whatever. Hell wonderful and how fantastic and these people are so talented. So we're we've got about two minutes to remind everyone how to get tickets. A good idea is very important that if you want tickets to the show, and I'm sure you're going to want them are, you know, someone you'd like to send to the show surveilled at okay, senior, follies dot com and song line seniors spelled out. But yes, okay. Senior S F O L L E S senior follies dot com. And you can get them by phone at eight six six nine six six one seven seven seven June first person June second, which is a Saturday and Sunday night at seven pm, and then the afternoon performance, which usually sells out I you know, that's a good question last year. I don't know which one sold at first for this age group matinees are very popular. Because you something really fun to do on Sunday afternoon. Absolutely. Well, Sheridan, forty cast members. Of talent of this senior nece and experience are they helping you with your choreography and direction. They certainly are. Yes. Just earlier today. We choreographed our our first number, and yeah, some moments that can't be like hurting cats, but you know, everyone is entitled to their experience and their their opinions that we're just we're just wrangling in managing putting together for the common. Good. Fantastic. And then does this show ever repeat anywhere else? Like, do you take it across the state or anything? We have not taken the full show anywhere else that I'm.
