Yuja Wang, Daredevil Pianist, Takes on a Musical Everest
"Happened in the world of music. Now, I control myself. If I get any award. For broadcasting the award I deserve, is that I don't talk about music more because most people and how to interested. And I know it. Nevertheless, I am going to tell you something. That even if you know nothing about classical music, a unique event took place. In Carnegie Hall, are you familiar with this? It's literally unique in musical history. What happens Saturday night? A friend of mine is in the Philadelphia orchestra. We spoke last night, and it was a remarkable, so there is a composer called rachmaninov, a Russian composer. Late 19th century, early 20th century. Who wrote exceedingly difficult pieces for piano and orchestra. Four of them, the colt concerto a concerto is a piece for a solo instrument and orchestra, so there are violin concertos, cello concertos, trumpet concertos, and a piano can share that was the most ubiquitous. He wrote four. They are among the most difficult pieces to play in the repertoire of music. He wrote one more piece for piano and orchestra, rhapsody on a theme by paganini. This is by far my favorite of his pieces. One woman played all 5 concertos. In one night, in Carnegie Hall, Saturday night. All 5. Yuja Wang. There is something else you should know about you Wang. She is she might be the greatest living pianist. Of her generation.

"Yes, it is. Amazing grace how sweet the sound that saved a red light like me. I want was all but now I'm down was blind, but now I see. Yeah man, that's awesome. Who wrote that? That is such a beautiful song. And there's so many beautiful, well, you know, they always, yes. But no, John Newton, but I'm saying it's never clear to me that he just write the lyrics or do you also write the music or whatever, but it's one of those songs. That it says it all. Yeah. How sweet how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me until you understand you're a wretch in need of saving and still you understand that you're broken and you need Jesus to heal you. You're not getting it because you can't you can't come to him in your strengths. No, no. And so that's why that song is so special, probably to so many people.

"It's not a renovation. It's a transformation. It's an entirely new haul. We stripped to the bones. And we rode the rickety elevator up to the third floor. A little history is in order. The New York philharmonic left its home in the acoustically perfect Carnegie Hall for the Lincoln Center complex in 1962. And their new concert hall was acoustically imperfect. And too large, Deborah borda explained on that construction tour. The hall was originally designed for acoustically for the envelope to be for 2200 people. When the hall opened the boards of directors of both the philharmonic and Lincoln Center, decided they wanted to have it the same size as Carnegie Hall, so they put in 2800 seats. Over the decades, various renovations tried to fix the inherent problems, but were unsuccessful. The philharmonic and Lincoln Center finally agreed to do a gut rehab making the space more intimate. And when the pandemic hit, those plans accelerated. The $600 million project employed over 6000 people, many of whom came from minority and women owned businesses. Coming out of the pandemic and Black Lives Matter protests. Henry Tim says the goal wasn't just to make a beautiful concert hall. I think the great hope with this project is that more people feel more welcome at Lincoln Center. We have been so committed to the heights of performance to that kind of ambition and that dedication which makes the greatest art. We have not been as dedicated to how do we reach more people. On their terms, not on ours. That's an important shift. So there are many outward facing aspects to the new geffen hall. People can watch concerts for free on both an enormous screen in the lobby and outside a studio next to the street. There will be visual art on display, and some concerts will be pay what you can. But of course, the centerpiece is the interior of the hall itself

"I'm not kidnappers who are. Oh, man. I don't know. I don't know enough things. That's why I hate going to parties because everybody else seems to know stuff. You know how you're supposed to mingle around? You ever walk up to a group at a party and then you instantly find out they're talking about something that's way over your head. I never know what to do in that situation. I wish I knew how to say, I don't know what you're talking about. May I still stand here? I'm gonna start doing that. Is that a party? And I walked up to these people, and they were talking about art. And I don't know anything about art. So, of course, I said, I love art. Oh my God. Well, what museums have you been to? I have to go home now. I could not think of a single museum name. And I had just released, I love art, like a flock of doves. I don't know what to do. I'm staying in there. And then I remembered I had read about a museum in France or something. So I figured I'm lying anyway. I might as well lie to get out of that first lie. There's nothing smarter than that technique. I was like, well, I was in party. At the la rover. Do you like Monet? And I love Monet. In fact, I spent a lot of money when I was in potty. What's your favorite Cezanne? When tear.

"And it was a moment that made me realize that the full range of who I am as a person could exist in this role. I realized that there was room for my whole being. And by the way, Steven is a genius because he's able to have that range himself as a host. You mentioned this range on the show and there was a moment a few weeks ago that I thought was profound. Andrew Garfield was on and Stephen Colbert was asking him about the loss of his mother. And he said that he has started to see grief is unexpressed love. And that he didn't want to let all his grief go because holding on to it was holding on to some of the love that he didn't get to show her. I'd love to hear your riff on that a little bit because it fundamentally changed my thinking about grief and I think it had that impact on a lot of people. Wow, man, that was a moment that changed my perspective on grief as well. Just thinking about how in such a dark time in one's life, how do you find the light? I'm always searching for the light. Always looking for a way to connect grief to some sort of redemption. And he really put it in the words more eloquently and precisely than anyone I've heard. It's just about a renewing of appreciation for what we have in this life to be alive to exist with the ones we love and to know what they gave us indoors once they're gone because it's just that strong. It was such a de observation to say that look, you know, when you're grieving, it's not just sadness, it's also love. You don't have to avoid it. You don't have to run away from it. You don't have to rush to process it. You can keep a little bit of it close and that is a way of staying close to people that you've lost. Yes, it's a way for us to stay close to them. And to share what they meant to us with those who we love. What's in the horizon for you? What are you looking forward to? What are you thinking about next? Well, these are great questions 'cause they really do dovetail. I'm processing the grief and also the triumph of this American experience, this is an incredible epic piece of work that I'm premiering at Carnegie Hall next year. The working title as of now is American symphony. And I called it American symphony because it's a piece of work that is taking all of the forms of social music from the beginning of America and its inception.

I mean, you can't compare any other venue to Augusta, but it is interesting that there's no other tournament site where the roar has the impact like it does at Augusta and it has just an ability to carry unlike again any other place or site or any other major. It's almost like there's a soundproof wall invisible like in a, like one of those dog fences you put up in the yard. You don't see it got stuff, but there's some sort of soundproof wall that creates this Carnegie Hall type experience where you think of somebody whispered down an amen corner. It might actually travel all the way up to 18. I mean, it is, it gets amplified and intensified unlike any advice to I've ever seen, but Scott's point is spot on. It's part of the, it's a part of the tournament experience for those who are in contention. Sure, it happens on Thursday and Friday, but you get late in the game. And you can't always be eyeballing a scoreboard if you're out there and you're fighting for the green jacket. But you hear it, and I mean, it sends shivers or shock or fear into the hearts of virtually everyone out there. They know something is happening and you can. You can absolutely identify where it's coming from. Yeah, not only where it's coming from, but to Scott's point, if you talk to the players, they almost know who it's for, which is even it's just another layer of the intricacy and the authenticity of that event. You two are voices of the tournament. How do you experience the masters as part of the American fabric?.

"There are differences there as you say to be published or not or with the intention of public view. But it does seem to be a trend to do it in the morning. And to find that almost like the cream that's risen to the top or whatever has been in your mind from the night before. And what can you say about that, Julia? The whole habit now called morning pages and you can get it as an app on your phone or you can just buy a notebook and a pen. And people just literally put down, as you say, you know, the thing that is at the top of their brain and just get it down on the page. And a lot of people say that that clears their head. And so what people talk about for well-being is the intention that you set for your day can predict how good or bad your day is. So if you get if you put down say your anxiety and what you're worried about and then on your page, you say, well, I'm going to write for two hours today. And that's what you set yourself up to do. That can give you a better day. So what you tell yourself on the page can mean that you do it and you feel satisfied. So it's a positive psycho rather than a negative one. And do you do morning pages as well as the writing or do the two come together? I don't do morning pages. I mean, when I am working on a project I write and when I'm not working on a project I don't write. But I want to say, I think it is so important for everyone to know that they're allowed to write it's such a private thing to do and a lot of why we do it is because we love to do it because we can't not do it. And if somebody was practicing the cello and you said, well, you know, unless you're going to play at Carnegie Hall, there's really no point in you playing the cello. People understand we make music we paint pictures we write stories primarily for our own enjoyment and our own self expression. Having a professional life publication is a byproduct of doing that work much, much farther down the road. But I think it's the era we live in..

"A bridge line recording is not going to give you Carnegie Hall, symphony quality, fidelity, but nobody really cares is what I've realized. I don't use equalizers. I don't use any of these external devices that one might think or necessary. Yes, they can improve quality sometimes. But as Morgan spurlock said to me on this podcast, once you get fancy, fancy gets broken. And I prefer to have the fewest number of moving pieces possible. When I record in person, just to cover that, I use the Zoom H 6, recording device with XLR cables and generally SM 58 stage microphones, which are sure microphones. There are the oldest microphones you can imagine. Yes. So you have the H 6. You could take the SM 58 mic and probably throw it against a brick wall, and it would be fine. That's my guess. I can throw all of that gear into a backpack. I can travel with my entire podcast studio. So to speak, it's been good enough for between 607 hundred episodes and I don't have any plans to change. So that is the gear. I use a similar setup and I would say I don't know if you know a specific one. You could go listen to the episodes I've done. And one of them someone had no headphones, no microphone, we were just using a MacBook, and I'd be shocked if someone could actually that isn't an audio engineer could go back and pick out which one it is. Pro tip that we ended up using earlier in this conversation, which I picked up from Kevin rose, actually, who has a lot of experience with this kind of thing, is if you're doing a remote recording and you ask someone to check their source to make sure the inputs and outputs are set properly. They might say, my mic is selected. But if it sounds funny to you, ask them to tap the mic if they tap the mic and you don't hear that. That kind of punchy Tapping sound then it means it is not selected. It's.

And you talk about why some people don't burn out and there are several resilience factors that you point to. I guess. Let's talk about doctors. Do you think doctors can learn to be more resilient. Did they become more. Resilient as time goes on and they face more and more these really difficult situations or what is that capacity. That allows us to be more resilient here. I think that medicine is not really bad. John but yes it's true. Some people do become more resilient. Some people burnout. And i don't think there's any workers not enough concerted effort in terms of building the capacity for resilience individual had collected way as in other professions for example. Kinda in the aviation industry after. Had a near miss if you're pilot not allowed to fly again until you have a chance to talk with someone about your experience and how you manage that emotionally as well as heartedly and their procedures in place that help people deal with traumatic events and even in the military in training for special forces for example. They know that they're going to be sending these people into very dangerous circumstances. They don't just throw them in at the deep end. They do some progressive conditioning so that they are able to navigate a mildly difficult situation moderately difficult situation that severely difficult situation and so it's just progressive training. I think musicians do that. Also you don't good musicians. Don't wake up in one day or playing in carnegie hall. They play for a small class from they play for larger group. But i think in medicine students can spend two years. Essentially in the classroom. Message has some pretty early clinical experiences but essentially their classroom learning. And then they're just thrust into these environments rich ross. Human suffering is unfiltered and often. Without enough opportunity to debrief and to build their capacity for resilience. In those circumstances and the culture of medicine as we slow out before doesn't acknowledge and reinforce us as the to chart. I really feel that. There's a lot to be learned have allowed the needs to be changed the cultural medicine to make it. A president is that not only patients but healers as well and it would certainly help the high levels of burnout among physicians. Yeah what is your meditation practice. What do you do every day.

They need to be addressed. And we can do that. But it's not an emergency. We can just take your time and just really celebrate and embrace our child and help them build the scales. I like that you pointed that out. Sometimes i feel like we think that these are personality traits like being polite and doing things like not interrupting but they're actually skills can be learned and taught and is that where accommodations. Come in. you mentioned that you would come back to combinations. That is where accommodations come in because if we always put our kids in matched environments than they don't grow so there's actually some benefit to having mismatch environments every once in a while or even regularly so not seeing that as an enemy but seeing it as part of the curriculum so i remember with my child who classic.

"Good afternoon. I'm jonathan kaye. Part opinion writer for the washington post. Welcome to washington post. Live the united states versus. Billie holiday is the incredible story of the fbi's effort efforts to keep jazz great billie holiday from singing strange fruit. Her signature song about lynching director lee daniels presents a gripping drama that shows holiday in all her glory and tragedy. Andrew o.'day gives a stellar performance. So convincing you'd think you were watching lady day herself. That's why i am thrilled and honored to welcome lee daniels and andhra dade to washington post. Live thank you both very much for being here to see you again. I know it's been a very long time. Greats isn't a you again both of you. Congratulations on this film. The moment i saw it. I immediately sent a letter to y'all saying okay here. All your options. I need to talk to you about this film. Le- let me start. Start with you. Thanks so as we saw in the in the opening clip. The film tackles pretty much everything. Racism sexism addiction art abuse. And i'm wondering. How did you come to this project. And what influenced your approach to billie. Holiday's life susan lori parks the pulitzer winning a prize winning playwright Sent me this beautiful script that really depicts the government breaking her down coming for her coming for billie holiday and and really trying to cripple her. As an artist or singing strange fruit which was about lynching black people and that wasn't the understanding of billie holiday that i had. I thought that she was a troubled jazz singer. Got in trouble with the law. And you know the drugs and was fashionable. I did know that she was a political activist. And so and i you know i pride myself in being smart about our history and i thought to myself that i i don't do this. I don't know i had. I had to do it. And i thought also like how many other stories about our people have have. They have been hidden so yeah that was more threes in selena. And so right and i am going to latch onto what you just said before. Which was you thought of billie holiday as a jazz singer But you didn't really know that she was an activist. What what more did she do. Other than being defiant about trying to seeing strange fruit despite government opposition and government targeting. What other things that she do that made you realize that she's she's more than just lady day. What other than she did. Besides stand up to the government. I guess a lot to say i couldn't. I don't know that i could today. I don't think that i could. They told me lead. You can never make a movie again or coming for your mother. I'm going to come for your kids and you will. I'm like take it. But the thing about her strength and her being born in the into the world that she was being born in tipton board she didn't she didn't get to fly in you know what because she. She had nothing to lose by living in her constantly. And let me bring you in here. I saw your interview go ahead. Go ahead now. I just wanted to back off that too. I mean. I think what shows so brilliantly in the movies that apart what she did in standing up to the government was being human. She's black queer woman in the nineteen thirties.

Lee Daniels and Andra Day take on Billie Holiday’s legacy
"Afternoon. I'm jonathan kaye. Part opinion writer for the washington post. Welcome to washington post. Live the united states versus. Billie holiday is the incredible story of the fbi's effort efforts to keep jazz great billie holiday from singing strange fruit. Her signature song about lynching director lee daniels presents a gripping drama that shows holiday in all her glory and tragedy. Andrew o.'day gives a stellar performance. So convincing you'd think you were watching lady day herself. That's why i am thrilled and honored to welcome lee daniels and andhra dade to washington post. Live thank you both very much for being here to see you again. I know it's been a very long time. Greats isn't a you again both of you. Congratulations on this film. The moment i saw it. I immediately sent a letter to y'all saying okay here. All your options. I need to talk to you about this film. Le- let me start. Start with you. Thanks so as we saw in the in the opening clip. The film tackles pretty much everything. Racism sexism addiction art abuse. And i'm wondering. How did you come to this project. And what influenced your approach to billie. Holiday's life susan lori parks the pulitzer winning a prize winning playwright Sent me this beautiful script that really depicts the government breaking her down coming for her coming for billie holiday and and really trying to cripple her. As an artist or singing strange fruit which was about lynching black people and that wasn't the understanding of billie holiday that i had. I thought that she was a troubled jazz singer. Got in trouble with the law. And you know the drugs and was fashionable. I did know that she was a political activist. And so and i you know i pride myself in being smart about our history and i thought to myself that i i don't do this. I don't know i had. I had to do it. And i thought also like how many other stories about our people have have. They have been hidden so yeah that was more threes in selena. And so right and i am going to latch onto what you just said before. Which was you thought of billie holiday as a jazz singer But you didn't really know that she was an activist. What what more did she do. Other than being defiant about trying to seeing strange fruit despite government opposition and government targeting. What other things that she do that made you realize that she's she's more than just lady day. What other than she did. Besides stand up to the government. I guess a lot to say i couldn't. I don't know that i could today. I don't think that i could. They told me lead. You can never make a movie again or coming for your mother. I'm going to come for your kids and you will. I'm like take it. But the thing about her strength and her being born in the into the world that she was being born in tipton board she didn't she didn't get to fly in you know what because she. She had nothing to lose by living in her constantly. And let me bring you in here. I saw your interview go ahead. Go ahead now. I just wanted to back off that too. I mean. I think what shows so brilliantly in the movies that apart what she did in standing up to the government was being human. She's black queer woman in the nineteen thirties. Forties and fifties and that living in an owning their in itself is is is defiance than accident that she's integrating audiences music one of the first artists a black woman to integrate carnegie hall. She wasn't the first but she is one of the first shoes audiences in athlete. People understand. This is sort of pre.

"From his tour recently at Carnegie Hall, Mr Bill O'Reilly, the author of Killing Crazy Horse and Killing the mob. Which I actually received this week. Bill. I have it have the copy. Yeah, I'm not going to get into it. But how difficult get anything you But first I want to say yeah, I'm gonna offer up mass on Sunday for your daughter. No, thank you. And then privately, Of course, if there's anything I can do to help, No, no, no, There's not. I appreciate it, you know? You never know. We have a lot of cloud. But whatever you need to know the season and amazing hospital and it's just it's really odd with Cove ID that you know people aren't allowed to be with their loved 11 person is allowed in, and so she selected her sister to be with her the whole time. And we just have to wait and I can't be in the hospital can't be with her when she comes out. It's just so weird time anyway. Bill, Where do we Where do we even begin with this week's news? All right, so I was surprised that by getting out of himself as this Um, very enthusiastic progressive. This week. I thought it would ease into that. My analysis on billoreilly dot com was that he really doesn't have any core values. Joe Biden. I'm not saying that with any malice, but if you look at his career, he's changed on every issue, including abortion. When really hard to change on that, Unless you have an epiphany, he had an epiphany the other way. Um, So you know, my assessment of Biden Woz and I said this throughout the campaign and after if you elect him, President, you're getting a malleable guy getting a guy. Who's basically gonna court favor with his party in the press. And the two press that he is most enamored with or The New York Times in Washington Post's what people don't understand is that Joe Biden wants the approval. Off these newspapers. That they are guiding him or so the Schumer or Pelosi or any of the others. The Obama's that he wants to see those papers praised him on a daily basis. That is what he lives for. So when you're going to take that turf, these are far left newspapers. They're not moderate left there far left. The U. S. A. Is a bad country. It always has been from George Washington onwards, and we got a record and build a new country. So essentially what The ex lap is explained to me then, if he wants the approval, he is now up to 40 executive orders the fascist dictator that didn't leave office. Donald Trump. Um, did 66 in his first week Joe Biden has done 40. A world record for presidents of the United States and the New York Times, came out their editorial board and said, Stop stop with the executive orders. Yeah, but you didn't read the full thing I did. I did. It said. Stop because you're making it harder for us to get our progressive agenda passed in Congress forever correct because Americans are getting nervous. It wasn't scolding Biden for being a progressive loon. That's not what itwas it was. Hold it. Your strategy is not good. Hold back a little. So I thought perfusion their word of the day. Well, it was it was more than that. It was like, Look, you're just undoing. Donald Trump's tough. The first few were just undoing Donald Trump stuff. And if you want lasting change, you have to go through Congress. But here's here's the interesting point on this. I don't think that anyone truly understands Joe Biden's Real agenda or the or the the magnitude of force behind him. They learned from Barack Obama. You have two years and you really have the 1st 100 days where everyone will give you a pass. So you got a jam it in right now, before something happens, and there's a tea party organized or or anybody knows what to do. Everyone's still talking about the last president. Just do all of it right now. I think that's what's really happening. Don't just agree. Because the very nervous The progressives that they'll lose Congress in two years. So they want to jam everything up. Now get it in stone it possible and drive the United States into a socialist state. That's the goal. I mean, they want the government to run the economy and dole out to the favored groups. That's what the equity thing is all the large Yes, that comes from Washington. I will tell you Bill have had I kind of have a different view on exactly what you just said. And I've been saying the same thing. We're headed towards the socialist state. We're not. We're actually becoming an oligarchy. Um, what was is happening right now is the use of these divisions the use of these favored status. Is very convenient right now. But the money the real money is not going to be going to those groups. The real money is going to these oligarchs. These giant Companies and CEOs and those with connections and those who will play ball with the new, you know, great reset agenda of of climate change union jobs, etcetera, etcetera. I think that remains to be seen. I think that these marginalized groups, as hasn't invited has described them will receive. Lot of favorability. Yeah, I agree with that. On the on the other side. I'm not convinced that there is a blueprint to enrich. The social media titans by the federal government. I think that they are they have an alliance. Um, the left wing Democratic Party. Certainly allies with Silicon Valley, But you've got to remember that the the Amazons and the Facebooks and the twitters. They developed something that People all over the world want.

"Right. Another Hollywood news. You know, Taylor Swift surprised us all when she released her album, folklore, and we didn't make it or break it for you. Not so long ago with her brand new single cardigan. And a lot of fans talking about. There's couple rumors around folklore, the album from Taylor Swift fans saying they think that Taylor Swift and her boyfriend, Joe Done Zo reel of the lyrics, and they think that even though Joe Alwyn believe that I say it always was credited with writing under Ah, a pen name, they think that he wrote some of the lyrics, but I guess some of the lyrics are also saying that they have broken up and fans are really upset about it. Same old, same overtime now. Also something else. And this is where you really have to be a major Taylor Swift fan to even know this. But Taylor Swift might have given away the name of Ryan Reynolds and Blake, Lively's third daughter. They welcome their three okay, but the name of their third daughter has not been publicized. In one of Taylor Swift songs. She goes on to talk about it. There are three names Betty I Nez and James. Well, Inez and James are the confirmed names of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds daughters. And so now fans are speculating that Betty is the name of the third. Wow, Interesting, Taylor Swift and they are all friends, and they all hang out. And then as She just cement the room or even further. Blake Lively, offered a lot of praise, talking about like you. Folklore is full of heart and soul, humor, passion, intelligence, what she goes on and on and on with every positive and you could say about the album. And so fans quickly noted that the lyrics to the song featured the three names Betty, Inez and James the ladder to being the names of Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively's Daughters. It's interesting. My wife, Kelly is a huge Taylor Swift fan. When I first met her like, she said, When she goes to bed, she would have a Taylor Swift playlist and she'd go to sleep and were first married. You know, to go to sleep. She'd just hit it and They're so if we go to sleep, listening, Taylor Swift every night she got the new album. She was mad at me. First of all that, you know, we didn't make it or break it for one of the cardigan issue, And I was she was like, Did you notice we have new album like Yeah. Came out two days ago. And she was. Why don't you tell me? I forgot This was so upset. I think she would know that some sort of fan club mailing. Yeah, but she's been working like nonstop. I'm pregnant. All stuff.

I like sad girl like Adele like where she's you know. Tom Amaro, Where's powerhouses like Wow, It's kind of like Oppressing, which is the type of music with the artist that she worked with her. She collaborated with on this album. People like bony there, I think there's a couple other and that's Their style. That's so you could hear it when you see who she's worked with, you kind of think. Oh, this's what I'm getting. Okay. It's different from any album she's ever done, though, and I didn't listen to all that. We played the card. We played Carnegie Hall Cardigan didn't like it. I mean, this is too slow for me, but I'm biased. I typically don't like most super slow, low energy songs. I know lots people that do, But so I am elicit the rest of it. But Me and Kelly Taylor.

KCRW's Hollywood Breakdown
TV advertisers are changing the channel
"I'm Kim Masters and this is Hollywood breakdown joining me as my regular Banter Buddy on the business at felony and Matt normally a lot of reporters would be gathering with a with masses and masses of advertisers in New York. This time of year for the upfront presentations when these advertisers are are given very splashy star studded presentations in places like Carnegie Hall Where CBS does presentation and these they unroll the fall shows and they they and there's huge parties. I mean this is where billions of dollars worth of advertising are are starting to get sold on the basis of the shows. I remember the year back when they played. Abc played the entire pilot for modern family. That's really rare. It's what you do when you think you have something great and you think all the advertisers will want to be a part of it and you can make a lot of money. So of course there's not a prince this year and their virtual. They're doing these things they're trying to do them. In one way or another different networks taking different approaches some of them are having sort of virtual presentations. Some of them are having smaller. Smaller group presentations virtually of course and it augurs badly all of this because advertisers are really fleeing the businesses not there. It's going to really really be devastating for television that is driven by advertising. Yeah I mean this has been analogize by a couple of analysts to the two thousand eight recession and what that did for the print advertising market which is it exacerbated trends that were already afoot and just absolutely accelerated and made them devastating to the print. Business and people think that this might be the case for traditional LINEAR AD driven networks. Where there are you know. They're the trend has been away from these massive commitments but the business has been okay because they've been able to get creative and come up with hybrid ad packages that a lot of advertisers could buy into but this year. I mean there was a Wall Street Journal piece this past week that estimated just in the third quarter between a billion and one point five billion in ad commitments are just going to go away and advertisers are experimenting more and they're seeing more traction on digital platforms and they're using this pandemic to experiment and do do things and will that Ad. Revenue Comeback knows. Yeah they have the ability advertisers in many cases to cancel existing commitments. To get out there trying to I mean they buy these ads well in advance of the TV season and they do have in some cases an chance. They did have a chance to cut back on some of their commitments before may first so things like General Motors pepsi-cola and and Pepsico and cracker barrel and General Mills. Big Huge companies have been trying to take advantage of that cancellation option to varying degrees. And and there was a survey released from something called advertiser perceptions that marketers will plan to spend thirty three percent less this year during the up fronts compared with last year and that is a six point. Six billion dollar decline. If that's right and I'll read you a quote from the one of their executives the upfront strikes at the heart of the uncertainty advertisers are struggling with. They can't commit long term but at the same time you know they do. Advertising isn't going to go permanently away if you're hoping lower to attract customers you got gotta advertise somewhere and TV. I think it's still a big tent broadcast TV. And the ratings have been up for broadcast network. They've been up everywhere during the pandemic. But we're starting to see some softening as these were made it. Home episodes become more ubiquitous. I think that's probably going to continue over the summer. In the fall. People are afraid to spend money so advertisers can advertise but people aren't necessarily buying and those companies are hurting to thank you. Matt thank you. That's Matt Bellamy joins me this Monday at one thirty business. I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown.

The Recording Academy is imploding the week before the Grammys
"Welcome to the frame John Horn Sexual Harassment Arabe and denial claims of corrupt practices. No it's not a new soap opera. It's what the recording academy is dealing with just a few you days before. It's big event the Grammy Awards last week. The academy put its president and CEO. Deborah Dugan on administrative leave yesterday she filed a sexual harassment and discrimination complaint against the Recording Academy for more on the latest developments. WE TURN TO GEM AS WAD senior music editor at variety jam. Cham- welcome back to the show. Thank you so if we believe everything that was in the complaint which was filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Listen on behalf of Dugan one of the most remarkable allegations in well the the allegations sorta go in two directions. They're the ones against her personally. She says she was sexually harassed by a very prominent attorney who works closely with with the academy. She said that her ideas for changes were opposed by the board and top executives at the academy. And you know speaking with sources close to the situation. I'll say she didn't really fit in and it was a challenging doing situation for now having said that the complaint alleges is that there are all kinds of kind of insider deals going on inside inside the academy it alleges that people who are connected with certain artists are voting on nominating committees and financially the doesn't allege this is actually a fact the academy which has no in-house lawyer is paying millions and millions of dollars every year to outside law firms for work worked. She deemed unnecessary and sources say and her complaint alleges that she went into a meeting gave a big presentation about changes she planned to make which included stopping or at least dramatically cutting back payments to those law firms and three weeks later she was put on administrative leave. So let's look at a couple issues here. Hear the Recording Academy says that Dugan was shown the door or put on administrative leave because of the way she treated the former assistant to port. Now what does dougans defense of that issue. Her complaint says that is untrue that is inaccurate. And if you look at the academy's claims the public claims that they've made there are a lot of explosive words. Used the upshot of what they're saying is that she was mean and you know I mean. Do you remove move your top executive ten days before the big show because she was mean to somebody you know I mean it's just it strains credulity a bit especially if that executive we're not a woman and Dugan's complaint says the allegations are true. They say that the person in question was not. I'm not up to the job that she expected her and she was trying to find another place for in the organization in the EEOC complaint Dugan makes a couple of very explosive charges. One involves a rape allegation against her predecessor. Neil port now and the other describes some inappropriate behavior of not outright sexual actual harassment by Joel Katz. Who is a top lawyer that works with the recording academy what specifically she alleging for both port now and cats the allegation against port? Now this is an actual rape allegation. Apparently a foreign. That was the word they used. Female singer Songwriter on writer. WHO's in the KADEMI member who performed at Carnegie Hall you know? He admitted there was an allegation. He said it was it investigated and he was exonerated now. Presumably he was was investigated by the Academy in terms of her own claim of sexual harassment. She says that Before she had even started just a couple of weeks after she had signed a deal to become. CEO Joe Joe Cats took her out to dinner somewhere in Laguna Beach and she alleges she put the moves on her. We're talking with riders. Jim Aswa about what is going on inside. The Recording Academy so Porno said the rape allegations are outrageous terribly hurtful and untrue. A lawyer for Joel Katz said he categorically denies the sexual assault or harassment allegations. What does the Academy said? The academy has not responded and as of right now typically to the allegations. When it came out yesterday I went to them? Asked for a comment immediately. It took about an hour and all they did was basically regurgitate the accusations they had made about Dugan the day before and over the preceding couple of days they have happening addressed the other allegations and they may not. I mean that's the last question there are allegations and Dugan's EEOC complaint about how white and male leadership leadership and voting is inside the academy. But something that really caught my eye. I'm GonNa read a paragraph from the complaint is this. The board uses these committees. These are nominating committee for the grammys as an opportunity to push forward artists with whom they have relationships indeed it is not unusual for artists who have relationships with board remembers and who ranked at the bottom of the initial twenty artists to end up receiving nominations. So what that is suggesting is that the grammy nominating automating process itself is suspect that to me is the thing that should most concern the public. A lot of the rest of this stuff is inside baseball and and you no very legitimate complaints but you know that depends on how much you care about the makeup of the recording academy the fact that the nominations are skewed is something that has been suspected for a while because every year there are these kind of mysterious nominations that appear in certain categories. And you know those of us who watch is this. You know we've heard of most of these artists you know every year you'll just be like who would that and you know we might find out that a producer and engineer is on the nominating committee. The median Oh hey look there asong that album that they produced or engineered there. It is an old look also on the committee is someone who works at that label So Oh you know that sounds horrible. It doesn't necessarily have to be because the other side of it is the fact that the people who are good enough to get on the nominating committees prominent enough to be working with a lot of these artists. However I'm not saying that's the case all the time gem as Wad is senior music editor at variety gem? Thanks so much for coming on the show

Holiday's voice was sounding fragile and warn the toll of a life marked by hardship and addiction. Although the more energetic sound of her earlier records is muted here, holiday still delivers wise and moving performances in this collection of emotional, jazz tunes, many of the songs here became synonymous with her unique sound and persona.
