Croatia's ruling conservatives to analyze loss of presidency

"And Croatia's former Prime Minister Zoran on Novic won his country's presidential elections this weekend. The center-left candidate beat the defending center-right incumbent Kalinda grubber Qatar in a second-round round runoff. Mr Milinovic takes the reins just as Croatia takes on the rotating presidency of the European Union at the time of huge change within the EU. So so how will he manageable. This Guy Delone ISM is multiples Balkans correspondent and I'm delighted to say. He joins me on the line now. A guy a very warm welcome. Tell us about this new the president that Croatia has yeah. He's not exactly a newcomer to Croatian politics. He's not a fresh face by any means. He was actually Prime Minister for five years between twenty one ten and two thousand fifteen when he was at that point the leader of the Social Democrat Party And he was emptied out in two thousand fifteen hundred along with his government. Ostensibly I think because he the Presided over the bulk of never ending recession and it lasted for six years this recession. Although he was at pains to point out during the presidential debate that during during his last quarter in power as prime minister of Croatia had started to grow again economically speaking. You know you described him. As centre-left you describe. Kalinda Gra Qatada which is as a centre right. These things are all relative in Croatian politics. you you have both sides appealing at these nationalist tendencies save which have still existed even despite the fact that Croatia achieved its independence during the homeland war of the Nineteen Ninety S. They still think it's A. It's a winner to to drum up nationalist rhetoric. And we certainly saw Mr Milosevic and also script Qatada Mitch doing that during the campaign. Indeed I mean many people were quite surprised the fact that Kalinda grab architectural which has lost the election given the fact that she was extremely popular in so many ways. And also talking about the populist and nationalist point of view many remember her the World Cup final in two thousand eighteen when she was closing cozying up Vladimir Putin. And that's quite a statement to make who can forget those scenes When Kalinda quarterback Catava gloriously decked out in the checkable Jersey of of of Croatia during the World Cup final? As I recall she didn't have an umbrella but some I'm funky was holding an umbrella over over Putin's had but she looks absolutely delighted with the fact Croatia we're in the final and creations enjoyed the fact that not only their country's footballers footballer's but also their country's head of state regaining such an international profile. And you saw many profiles of Qatada in the international press after after that she certainly gained international attention and that was a big boost to her personal popularity For a long while and for much of last year you would have said that she'd be a shoo-in career election because you've really got to do something hitting quite unfortunate in order to lose the presidency and Croatia because it isn't a role the tolls a lot of executive power by any means means it's really a figurehead slash ceremonial role. But she made some missteps. And I think the key one among them was she made some sort of alliance with the mayor of Zagreb Millan Bandage Pitch. Who is currently on trial for corruption? Not the first time that's happened to him and needs to be said. And if there's one thing that voters in Croatia a sensitive about it's the idea idea of politicians troughing it at their expense and that seems to be in the biggest misstep which hit her popularity that she was in second place in in the first round of this. The presidential election to Mr Milosevic many people thought hoover up the right wing votes in in the second round. But it seems that wasn't the case against Milosevic assuming the presidency and a k next month I think as you said the largely ceremonial role but he does have influence when it comes to foreign policy and defense and security plus last Wednesday. Croatia took up the reins in terms of being the The EU presidency. It's assumed the six-month rotating position and has described itself. Is it being a historic event CRATIA and the most difficult test of its maturity since independence. That's an enormous job. I think that's actually Ahah comment because the issue we've seen had highlighted during the presidential campaign is the two candidates still hawking back to the nineteen ninety s and there was a think tank here in Slovenia which was looking at the issue and it said that the the both candidates were trying to prove which was the biggest Croat. And that's that's rather problematic when you think this is now almost thirty years on from the country's independence it's twenty five years on from the end of the homeland wars. They call it in Croatia unless still trying to prove who's more Croat than the other. The country needs to move beyond that and taking on the presidency of the European Union. Even if it's only for six months is a chance to show that it can be bigger than that and it does have an excellent opportunity to show that it can put all of these ethnic and regional squabbles. Behind it because of course the question of the expansion of the European Union into the Western Balkans is a really big live issue. Both Serbia and Montenegro are in membership negotiations. Albania north Macedonia would dearly like to be and would be were it not for manual macron. Vetoing them a couple of months ago so Croatia really doesn't have an opportunity here to stand up and say it'll be better for all of us in this region and in Europe as a whole if we he gets on the right track with these negotiations. This is the K. Isn't it guy the fact that when you do assume the EU presidency. You almost have to put your national interest to one side and thinking linkin terms of the greater good of the block. How capable do you think Croatia will be in trying this this task given the fact that it's issues of populism listen? Nationalism Migration border control a such a sticky issue for them. I don't want to make Zora Milosevic out to be an angel. He isn't he's he said. A nasty things about Serbia. Bosnia and Croatia has been locked in a border dispute with Slovenia a decades now However the fact that people wanted to vote for him him who is as we settle sensibly centre-left rather than Kalinda robot Qatada? He was supported by a right-wing Nationalist Party the party which founded Croatia the HD Zad that may be indicates that the voters think that they need to do something else. Now that this would be optimistic slammed on this it has to be said but perhaps people are thinking well. It is now time to move beyond that. The the arguments the politics and the ethnic arguments of the nineteen ninety s and try something different so so she would be optimistic in the New Year to think of Croatia moving in that direction. Why not thank you very much? Indeed guide

That's a bit, sir. Thanks so much for joining us tonight. It's my pleasure. Thank you. So let's go back, and let's start with. What is the prevailing sort of legal framework here? Is there a provision in North Carolina State law that would set the parameters for the conditions where you'd have to have a new election? Well, we do have general statute that did lay out the process by which I state board of elections could decide to call a new election there were four criteria. And everybody was looking at the fourth criteria regarding the number of irregularities that potentially could taint the election outcome didn't say anything necessarily about whether the irregularities would overturn the previous decision and the votes in the majority. But now we're kind of operating in legal no-man's-land. Some would argue that the governor's power to fill vacancies does exist, and that he would be able to create this. Interim state board of elections that would carry on until January thirty first when the new board which was voted yesterday by an override of his veto would go into effect Republicans in the legislation.

"Until TJ mentioned it the sun's out. Suspend an interesting storm for the Charlotte and vicinity because we've got trees down all over the place. But. I haven't been any farther east than where I'm standing right now. Belmont this morning. Other side of the catava river, Gaston county. Rain was coming down in buckets from I don't know seven thirty till eleven something like that. And by the time, I left the house about noon. It was kind of a sprinkle not to the point that you needed an umbrella to get to your car type of sprinkle. And so I get in here and I run into boomer and boomer says that between one fifteen and two o'clock this afternoon. He was listening to the scanner. And there were nine reports of ninety two down trees. And as you're listening to boomer traffic reports this afternoon. That's what the story is. There's less traffic on the roads schools there were no schools today. So that's going to be less traffic automatically. But a lot of people probably stayed home to avoid or work in staggered schedules or something along those lines. So the traffic is lighter. But there's obstacles to you getting through the way that you're probably used to going all over town. Trees are down. Now, we expected wind gusts this afternoon. Even after the rain started to subside a little bit. We've got this cold front coming in. And we're still getting the tail end of the of the whipping winds from Matthew. So I've been kind of standing here at the studio window all day long waiting for the big gusts to show up and at one point. I guess what would that have been two o'clock this afternoon deejay? We looked out. We've got these huge oak trees in the back of our property. And. The ones that are still left from Hugo because there used to be more and Hugo came through here and took out a bunch of those. But anyway, we were watching those trees move around probably as actively as we've seen in a long long time. But I don't see any destruction around here. And in fact, I don't see any limbs or anything like that. Hanging around out here, but huntersville and sometimes in south Charlotte.

"So these bands you're seeing right now. Will in essence, add to the rain total. We've already seen on edge engineer half depending on where you live. We'll see two inches. Probably in a lot of areas before we ever really even get started. And you take an answer inch and a half two inch and added onto the five or seven inches that we may see overnight into tomorrow. I heard it was Todd. The Borakove for the Weather Channel when he was talking to a Mark garrison estimated that he thought we'd probably see more. Remember what he said five to eight inches. Then the six to ten that had been listed a little bit earlier but five to eight inches throughout the day. And then you add that onto what we already have all the sudden, and you are seven to ten inches or something along those lines. So what you're seeing right now as part of the saturation of the ground that will lead to the flooding later on. And so we were watching and have been watching the radar and the bands. Pull that up. So I can get a better look at it. But. Charlotte is seeing the bands come through a band come through right now. And we'll for the next half hour. Forty five minutes. So it's probably rated at your place. And if it's not it will. And then it'll stop again, that's when you take the dog party. And then you come back in and it rains again. So you got to kind of a time to six they have a worry and flood warnings out for some of the rivers of North Carolina, including the south fork catava river at Lowell affecting Gaston county runoff from expected. Heavy rain will cause that river to rise above flood stage. So you've got a flood warning for the south fork catava at Lowell from essentially Sunday to Tuesday night, or until the warning is cancelled. The the flood stage is ten feet and yesterday afternoon. It was at two point two feet. With a forecast to rise above flood stage by Sunday afternoon. And continue to rise to nearly sixteen point one feet by early Monday afternoon. The south fork catava may be flooding. Several roads in the Cramerton area. And. I ran into a sheriff Cloninger from Gaston county earlier today, and I asked him I said guest and county sheriff, and I asked him I said is that the area that you concerned with and he said, yeah, Cramerton were very concerned about south catava river may begin to flood riverside drive between fifth and sixth streets in Cramerton floodwaters within approach homes along the catava run road. Hoyle creek flood waters possibly due to backwater effects from the south fork Cotabato river may begin to impact the old Willis school road bridge near a sandcastle road. So this is all not happening right now. But these are all the concerns and all the warnings that have been put out for what all of this deluge of rain that will see could do in the future. South fork Cotabato river, flood waters are beginning to inundate goat island park, which is right there in Cramerton. So floodwaters are approaching riverside drive near fifth and sixth streets and Cramerton and again, maybe approaching Lakewood drive adjacent to the far yarns in mccaddon Ville as well. So the southfork catava floodwaters begin to it or riverside park at Cramerton. So that area in through there, south fork and catava. That's a concern and has been for the last couple of days..

"Another that was blown over by the wind tending to his dogs. There was a lady I believe who had a heart attack and emergency workers couldn't get to her because the pathways were blocked by fallen trees. So the Gaston county river they're more than concerned about. In fact, there's been a couple of weather warnings. That have come down from flood standpoint one that came down today, national weather service in Greenville Spartanburg issued a flood warning for. The broad river in South Carolina near Blacksburg, which would affect Cherokee and York counties and blog broad river in North Carolina at boiling springs, which would affect Cleveland county run off from expected. Heavy rain will cause those rivers to arise or that river to rise in those locations, especially above flood stage. Now, remember river stage. Forecasts are based on observed and forecast rainfall it actually is rainfall varies from the forecast values. The river stage will vary accordingly. So would depends on what we're about to get? But that's that's their best prognosis in Gaston county, and we've talked to county commissioners in the sheriff Allen conjure up there on a couple of occasions tonight. Gaston county emergency management officials warning people who live around the south fork river to be prepared for flooding through Sunday when the heavier bands do finally get here, and they will. Then that's then you get a steady day of rain tomorrow. And then at some point during the afternoon tomorrow is when they'll become really concerned about the south fork river concerned about communities that lie along the south fork in the Spencer mountain Lowell mcadam Ville and Cramerton township areas which could face they say significant flooding as they move through the weekend. So if you're in that area, you are asked to be alert and be aware. So that you can't evacuate without delay. Should that need arise significant flood levels are intercepted by tomorrow afternoon and Florence they say could dump ten inches Raynor's that throughout their Charlotte area. Keep in mind at some areas, we've had in the neighborhood already to two and a half three inches. So to get to that ten total. You only need another, you know, seven eight inches or so so heaviest precipitation should be overnight tonight into all day tomorrow. So the south fork Cotabato at Lowell affecting Gaston county runoff expected heavy will cause that river to rise above flood stage the south fork and catava river at Lowell from Sunday till Tuesday night, or until the warning is cancelled flood stage yesterday afternoon was at two point two feet. Flood stage is technically ten feet. The forecast says that it could rise above flood stage by late Saturday ours sometime Sunday afternoon and continue to rise to nearly sixteen point one feet by early Monday afternoon. The south fork Qatada, maybe flooding several roads in the Cramerton area. And that's where they're where they're most concerned. Riverside drive between fifth and sixth streets and Cramerton. Floodwaters may also approach homes along the catava run road. Hoyle creek flood waters possibly due to the backwater affects of the south fork catava may begin to impact old Willis school road. And the bridge they're near sandcastle road. So the south fork and catava floodwaters are beginning to inundate goat island park, and those floodwaters are approaching riverside drive near fifth and sixth streets and Cramerton, and that's one of the areas. Forecasters also say maybe approaching floodwaters could be approaching Lakeview drive, which is just adjacent to far yarns in mcadam Ville. So the south fork and catava river floodwaters begin to enter a riverside park in Cramerton, and those are the areas that Gaston county is most concerned about from a flooding standpoint..

Well, it's nice. If that's all it does. I hope it does. You don't. I they told us you is it, you know, the there were a lot of these media reports were talking about the possibility of dislodged snakes alligators. But I hadn't heard any update on that. Have you heard anything more about people finding unusual creatures where they shouldn't be? Absolutely. I sure have as a matter of fact, I was a biology and chemistry major at university of North Carolina Wilmington, and I studied all the different poisonous snakes and non and I've never killed one. But there's no problem here. But yes around Newburn. Oh, Carolina and the Outer Banks, we're all the swamps are going to be backed up all of these reptiles turtles snakes alligators right in downtown. New Bern North Carolina. Ian is going to have. Alligators and already has seen in the end of street right there in downtown Newberg North Carolina, which is right on the news river, I saw that. That was the there's a small TV station there, and they had to evacuate. They they they all they did. I think the chief meteorologist stayed there at that Newburn TV station until the absolute last second. And then the water came pouring in. And he's like gotta go. They dislike turned off the cameras and left, and that's all they had. Yep. You're exactly right. But this this is going to be devastating from a rain standpoint. The flooding we were already saturated we have we've had already had more rain before the storm, then we normally have a full year. So we're Brown was already like a sponge. And now it's on top of it. It's it's going to be devastating all the way to pay Bill. Raleigh North Carolina. I'm glad you're up on the bluff, I feel better about it. And I look out for those shark NATO's. That's the only thing we got to worry about those now to apparently. So even I out let me get your quick story. I was trying to catch Chris on their zeppelin story. And you can tell me if it's true or not because a rare at rolling four years ago. When Jimi Hendrix England in the late sixties, and we're full club. There. Jamie pay a biography was about right. Pete townsend. They went down to the club wash Hendrix, intercourse interdiction blew the crowd away with his back. I mean, you're a player. His name with his teeth. And after the show was over. They were standing around and Jimmy pays look beach house. Well, all I got to say as we've got a whole lot more. Well, I have that story is not in the book, but I will tell you. He did they mention how much. Jimmy page was influenced by Jimi Hendrix, in the sense that it was his showmanship is ability to stand up there with the guitar. What was interesting was that, you know, Jimmy page doesn't sing. And so that kind of hampered his career, and it's part of what made, you know, you know, Pete Townsend and makes. Jimi Hendrix, so different. And that was one thing that the Jimmy page was very much aware of was that he needed to find these other pieces of the band. He could never be the leader. Like, the frontman Jimi Hendrix could could be because he couldn't sing. Yeah. And at one point he didn't try to steal the drummer from the from the Jimi Hendrix experience. And he couldn't get he was trying to try and get him to be to replace the drummer in at the end of the Yardbirds. I tell you what made a pretty good choice with John Bonham. And he was an unknown. Which is interesting. They tried for Keith moon. And there was a very much of a rivalry between Pete Townsend and Jimmy page. There was no there's there wasn't a lot of camaraderie between the who. And and and the Yardbirds or Led Zeppelin. They they had a they had a tense relationship. I think they made it up later on. But that's in the book too. I think you'll find it. Interesting. I I gotta jump. Let me get to Joe in lung enjoyed talking to you burying and stay safe Joe is east of the Rockies in Long Island on coast to coast AM joke tonight, a couple of questions really on Led Zeppelin now, you read most of the books, etc. But one would be the song stairway to heaven. Now, I understand that was like supposedly the number one requested song on the radio on. Seventy is just a just an awesome. You know song? That's so, you know, chilling, but what you really even call at a rock song or or when it almost to you wore people Celtic, you know, supposedly wants wedding and part on that whales trapped would. Yeah. So, you know, you bring up an interesting point, I would say it is like a lot of Led Zeppelin songs. It has it starts in in one. I'm gonna use one of those fancy words, but it starts in one mill you and ends and another. So it starts kind of as a folk song and ends as a as a rock song. And I think they do that in a couple of places like houses the holy does that with over the hills and far away where it starts as a Celtic thing. And then it goes into Iraq's off. And so that was pretty standard for them and the whole point of stairway to heaven was to break rule Jimmy Jimmy page. Always said. You know, the number one rule for any session musician was that you never sped up or slowed down the time. And that was what was the number one thing about you. As an artist is that you could keep a perfect time through the whole session. And that's what he does with with st- intentionally. That's what he did with stairway to heaven. And that's why the song it just starts slowly increasing the tempo is it goes along. And that time signature is part of what makes that song so special, and that's how it it. It Moore's essentially from folk song Celtic kind of folk song. But I thought this part was really interesting. It was written entirely and performed as a song recorded. The music was recorded before the lyrics were ever written, which I think that's part of the masterful. This of that song because they just sound so seemless together some. When you look at some quotes from that time, deep purple being example, maybe a little bit later. Peter Frampton in Chicago. It's I thought listening to them that they seem to have drawn from Led Zeppelin not necessarily imitating him, but really kind of following their lead to a degree. We'll humble pie. Definitely did. So Peter Frampton when he was in you know, with humble pie. That was that was. Yeah. That's they were sort of the the second tier Led Zeppelin, and and they were happy to be that, you know, they were to be mentioned in the same breath is Led Zeppelin that was humble pie. Chicago. I don't know kind of what the deal was with the I know they really into the fuzz box thing. And that was that was another Jimi Hendrix. Sorry. Another Jimmy page thing was was playing with that fuzz box in getting that sound. When they were doing early other experiments with the with Yardbirds. So maybe that way. But there you go. Appreciate that. Interesting. Commodore. Appreciate you know, I'll tell you in you. If we have other calls on Led Zeppelin. I'm I'm happy to take him. But you can talk about anything you want. It's open lines. I will say this part. Of all of the revelations about Jimmy page in the book. The one I found most startling maybe other people knew I didn't that Jimmy page. Retained fifty percent of everything Led Zeppelin made and everybody else the other three guys in the band and the manager. Split. The other fifty percent. And that's I mean, he was a bit of a dictator in that way. Not that people disputed his talents both as a producer, which he was the producer. But also, obviously a performer, but man, I mean, so he it was his band. And I didn't think I fully understood how much was his band. He owned the band, and and everybody else was kind of on salary, which you don't necessarily it caused some tension, which is all explained. But by Allen is an Auburn California on coast to coast Allen. In staying with Jimmy page of fame. I had a brief encounter with Jimmy page when he was still with a Yardbirds. I was a huge still a huge. Jeff Beck fan. I seem to be to Santa Monica to to see the Yardbirds. This is toward the last year. I think that they were together and unbeknownst to me, and my brother Jeff Beck's equipped just several days before that tough that appearance. He'd been playing with Jimmy page and Hollywood have left the scene. Those two, you know, Tom betting on stage. But anyway, I was really disappointed when Kurt went up, and I'm looking for Jeff Beck, and no Jeff back, but it didn't take too long for me to realize you're in good hands with Jimmy page. Interesting story, they talk about it. It's in the book Jimmy page, where they talk about that particular period how Jeff Beck kinda split on. And then we sort of voted out of the band. Yeah. And that was hard problems yet some tonsillitis, chronic constantly. Oh, it was a lie. Oh that was a lie. Was funny is because they actually he mentioned that that, you know, it was wink, wink, tonsillitis, but it wasn't tonsilitis. He was you know, he was he was being a bit of a prima, Donna. And and and it was just it was really Jimmy page. That got Jeff Beck. The gig in the Yardbirds. They wanted Jimmy page. You wouldn't do it? And they brought in Jeff Beck. And then at the time they they came back to offer him another slot. And they offered him bass player and Jeff Beck was the lead guitar player and Jimmy page played bass for the Yardbirds not very well. But then when Jeff Beck split Jimmy page right away took over as lead guitarist. And then Jeff Beck comes back, and they do perform together a few more times together, and they sort of make up from that point. So that's in the book, so interesting that you had that little connection for that Santa Monica story. Well, that's the connection actually was I. I had a front row seat and when he played happenings ten years time ago one of my very favorites. Right. Underrated at the art Brooklyn. He came on the down stroke and the bottom e string curled up around the guitar, and he tore it off. And it was in a big looping reached out. I was like four feet away from any handed it to me, clearer girl, either side of me, and I hit the loop around my hand, and they were sawing on this. And I'm not sure diabolical about this. But it certainly hurt like the devil. Yup. Guitar string for a number of years. I'd I'd always bring it out. When conversations have stuck to run the let's figure this is Jimmy pages. And I got so tired of people going. Yeah. Right. Such a cool story. Well, it's very interesting. And actually, there's there's even more about that than that. You'll want to know because it was you you're hitting on a very pivotal time. So the fact that you have that I know connection as it were. I think you'll Yardbirds at three three one of the great gets three. Great guitar. So the twentieth century Eric Clapton, of course, like the commercial direction yard where we're headed. So just back, right? Hit their most commercial success with Jeff of course, as you mentioned Jimmy page. I'll tell you.

It's low but this time tomorrow night. Let's go re right back up in my front yard, how how many feet above the Cotabato are you? So that if it crests how many feet do you have to to before you have to worry about it coming in your front door. Well, luckily, I'm right of a steep ruled by. The house sits up and my deck where I stand out and look at the way, which is only probably Casey see from my face to the water. And then I have a peer that goes out into late where I keep my bug. And anyway, the war would really raise how and they don't know. What's coming? Sometimes the war actually comes up over the rocks. The rip rap is called. Into my front yard and mortars my grants. Well, it's nice. If that's all it does. I hope that it does you don't, you know? I I was they told us is it, you know, the there are a lot of these media reports were talking about the possibility of dislodged snakes alligators. But I hadn't heard any update on that. Have you heard anything more about people finding unusual creatures where they shouldn't be? Absolutely. I sure have as a matter of fact, I was a biology and chemistry major university of North Carolina Wilmington, and I studied all the different poisonous snakes and non organise and I've never killed one. But there's no problem here. But yes, around Newburn, North Carolina and our banks. We're all the swamps or the backed up all of these reptiles. Turtles snakes, alligators, buddy. Right downtown new Bern, North Carolina. Ian is going to have. Alligators and already has seen him in in the street right there in downtown Newberg North Carolina, which is right on the news river, I saw that. That was the there's a small TV station there, and they had to evacuate. They all they did. I think the chief meteorologist stayed there at that Newburn TV station until the absolute last second. And then the water came pouring in and he's like gotta go, and they dislike turned off the cameras and left, and that's all they had. Yep. You're exactly right. But this this is going to be devastating from a rain standpoint of flooding. We were already saturated we have we've had already had more rain before the storm, then we're normal having a full year. So we're Brown was already like a sponge. And now it's on top of it. It's it's it's going to be devastating all the way to Fayetteville and Raleigh. Ollie North Carolina. Well, I'm glad you're up on that bluff, I feel better about it. And I look out for those shark NATO's. That's the only thing that we gotta worry about those now to apparently so keep an eye out. Let me tell you a quick story. I was trying to catch Chris on their zeppelin story. And you can probably tell me if it's true or not because role is four years ago. When Jimi Hendrix would your England in the late sixties, and we're football club. There. Jamie pay a biography was about right. Is buddy Pete Townsend. They went down to the club to watch Hendrix, intercourse, interdiction blew the crowd away. Whether it's back. I mean, you're a player behalf. With teeth. And after the show was over. They were standing around and Jimmy pays look if each house said, well, all I got to say as we've got a practice a whole lot more. Well, I have that story is not in the book, but I will tell you. He did the they mention how much. Jimmy page was influenced by Jimi Hendrix, in the sense that it was his showmanship his ability to stand up there with the guitar. What was interesting was that Jimmy page doesn't sing? And so that kind of hampered his career, and it's part of what made, you know. You know, Pete Townsend and makes. Jimi Hendrix, so different. And that was one thing that the Jimmy page was very much aware of was that he needed to find these other pieces of the band. He could never be the leader. Like, the frontman Jimi Hendrix could could be because he couldn't sing. Yeah. And at one point he did try to steal the drummer from the from the Jimi Hendrix experience, and he couldn't get he was trying to try and get him to be to replace the drummer in at the end of the Yardbirds. I tell you what he made a pretty good choice would John mom. Well, but he he was an unknown. Which is interesting. They tried for Keith moon. And there was a very much of a rivalry between Pete Townsend and Jimmy page. There was no there wasn't a lot of camaraderie between the who. And and and the Yardbirds or Led Zeppelin. They they had a they had a tense relationship. I think they made it up later on. But that's in the book too. I think you'll find it interesting. I gotta jump. Let me get to Joe in lung enjoyed talking to you bury and stay safe Joe is east of the Rockies in Long Island. Coast to coast AM joke tonight, a couple of questions really on Led Zeppelin now, you read most of the books, etc. But one would be the song stairway to heaven. Now, I understand that was like supposedly the number one requested song on the radio on. Seventies. Just a just an awesome, you know song? That's so, you know, chilling, but what you will even call out a rock song or all when it almost speed to you people Celtic, you know, supposedly wants Wettin and part on that well trapped yet. So you know, you bring up an interesting point would steer we'd have an I would say it is like a lot of Led Zeppelin songs. It has it starts in in one.

I sure have is a matter of fact, I was a biology and chemistry major at the university of North Carolina Wilmington, and I studied all the different poisonous snakes and non or and I've never kill. But there's no problem here. But yes, Iran, neighbor, North Carolina and our banks. We're all the swamp. So Gorby back all of these reptiles. Turtles snakes, alligators, buddy. Right downtown new Bern, North Carolina. Ian is going to have. Alligators already has seen in the end of story right there downtown Newberg North Carolina was you're right on the news river, I saw that. That was the that there's a small TV station there, and they had to evacuate. They all they did. I think the chief meteorologist stayed there at that newborn TV station until the absolute last second. And then the water came pouring in. He's like gotta go may dislike turned out the cameras and left, and that's all they only had. Yep. You're exactly right. But this this was going to be devastating from a rain standpoint of flooding. We were already saturated we have we've had already had more rain storm, then we're normal having a full year. So Graham was already like a sponge and now on top of it is going to be devastating all the way to pay Bill. Raleigh North Carolina. I'm glad you're up on that bluff, I feel better about it. And I look out for those shark NATO's. That's the other thing that we got to worry about those now to apparently so keep an eye out. Let me tell you. Quick story. I was trying to catch Chris on there. Zeppelin story. And you could probably tell me if it's true or not because a rate at rolling. Years ago. When Jimi Hendrix England in the late sixties, and we're for former club there, Jamie pay. Biography was about right buddy, Pete. And they went down to the clubs to watch Hendrix. Of course, Henriksen the crowd away with his back. I mean you play. His name with his teeth. And after the show is over they were standing around and Jimmy pays looking at peach house said all I got to say is we've got a practice a whole lot more. Well, I have that story is not in the book, but I will tell you. He did they mention how much. Jimmy page was influenced by Jimi Hendrix, in the sense that it was his showmanship his ability to stand up there with the guitar. What was interesting was that, you know, Jimmy page doesn't sing. And so that kind of habit is career. And it's part of what made, you know, you know, Pete Townsend and makes Jimi Hendrix so different. And that was one thing that the Jimmy page was very much aware of leads that he needed to find these other pieces of the band. He could never be the leader. Like, the frontman Jimi Hendrix could could be because he couldn't sing. Yeah. And at one point he did try to steal the drummer from the from the Jimi Hendrix experience, and he couldn't get he was trying to try and get him to be to replace the drummer in at the end of the Yardbirds. I tell you what made a pretty good choice..

"To us the podcast wherever podcast are hurt. Head over there. Subscribe to the Carolina outdoors and also reviews if you like us, and that'll help other people find us and enjoy us as well. But the riverside fast over at riverside. Marina in Belmont, North Carolina live music, food trucks, local beer, insider, kayaks and more our friends from Jesse browse are going to be on hand as well. So we might have a fly rod or two at their fly. Casting in the in the trees in the grass or in the maybe they'll even let us near the water. We'll we'll see. And Don earlier, I told you about sneaking up to lake Norman state park and enjoying a little bit of the lakeside of that water. Of course, the catava river is such an ever popular breadth of water through our whole commute. Unity and for over twenty years. Catava river keeper has been educating and advocating to protect the Qatada and watery river basins lakes, rivers and streams for everyone who depends on those and enjoys them, and we're gonna invite the executive director of the catava river keeper onto the Carolina outdoors right now. 'em bitch. Welcome to the outdoor gas. Well, thank you so much for having me. I appreciate it. Well, I just said all that stuff for the past twenty years or so, but let's just jump right in there. This has to be one of the toughest jobs in showbiz right now with the growing population of the region around here. Ever-growing construction development and recreational demands on the waterways of the catava river in watery river basins. Tell us about that challenge over the past twenty years, and how the river keeper has evolved with that certainly. Well, a lot of people don't realize this. But the catava watery river is actually one of the most endangered rivers in America. And the work that we do with the river. Keeper foundation is to work with those things that make us endangered like you mentioned development power production factory farming all that kind of stuff. We work in those issues on a state and local law and. Policy levels, and a grassroots level to sort of combat their negative impact on on the river. And what we're seeing is that over time what we're doing is working, and we wanna keep that up. But one of our biggest challenges is awareness. You know for anyone who lives in and around Charlotte. You wonder stand that the river is a good bit of distance away from Charlotte. And so a lot of folks don't easily access the river to recreate to enjoy it. And so that physical distance also creates this sort of mental distance that we have from our natural resources, especially water, which we depend on so much and where we are. And so one of the points of us having event like riverside fast is to give people an easy and fun excuse to get out on the river near the river and just to have a relaxing fun time. And hopefully, just learn a little bit about their proximity to water and their reliance on it. And then maybe care a little bit more about protecting it the next time around. So yes, it's to have fun. But it's also to bring people out there. So that they can enjoy something that they don't typically get to enjoy. You said one of the most endangered, but for our listeners, would you paint us a picture or an idea? Geographically of the Cotabato watery river basin. How many counties or from which to wear north to south what does that encompass? Kathleen. Good Taboada river is two hundred and twenty five miles long. It runs from ridgecrest North Carolina to Lake Mary, South Carolina, and it is contained in or touches twenty six counties in both north and South Carolina. And so it's a it's a pretty it's a pretty big area. If you think about it in terms of just where you are. But if you look at river basins all over the world, we're actually a pretty small to medium sized river basin and our river is interesting because we despite being two hundred and twenty five miles long. We only have about fifty miles of free flowing river remaining the rest of our river is actually impounded, and we have eleven manmade lakes or impoundment and fourteen dams and those are essential for power production and water intakes and thing and drinking water, but that overtime has sort of stopped up the free flowing nature of our river. So that's. Something else that we work around and and deal with and it's great. It's created lake communities and a lot of people get to enjoy the river like they never would have. But it also comes with some environmental challenges. And you know, we were the first river in America totally developed for power production. So we also have this, you know, really interesting history with that as well. So that's a little bit about you know, sort of the scope and the history of the guitar. I'm asked this question. I don't have anybody from Duke Energy here, but they are an integral part of the Qatabi river. Because of what you mentioned, what is the relationship with the Qatabi river keeper and Duke Energy. Is it adversarial? Or is it a kind of a partnership or is it a mixture of both? Yes. It's a it's a mixture of both. I would say we have you know, on the one hand Duke Energy and their lake management division. They are in charge of managing all of our impoundment and release dam releases flows. If there's ever a, you know, a drought Duke kind of manages. Lake levels, and what happens in the event of a drought, and they work closely with the local municipalities that take in water to, you know, give drinking water and household water to around two point four million people. So we have a relationship with them a good relationship in the fact that you know, in the in the way that when they in the course of their managing the river. We work side by side with them. And we have good relationships with with those folks, it's advert our relationship is adversarial with them. In the way that one of the largest threats to the catava watery river and the two point four million people that rely on drinking water from it. Is the massive amount of coal ash and pelmets that are sitting along the banks of the river, and we are one of the organizations leading the fight to clean up coal ash. And in that way, we are litigating against Duke Energy to make that happen. And so it's adversary in that regard. But we have a lot of day today communications and relationships with folks at Duke that are great. So it's a complicated relationship, but you know, Duke Energy provides and amazing service to millions of people, and they give philanthropic lead to the community. And there are a huge employer any area. Overall, Duke is probably a great company. It's just that this. You know issue with coal ash has not been resolved. And that's what we're working toward. We got the catava river keeper foundation executive director on with the outdoor gas here on the Carolina outdoors. Sara, which is with us and. Switching gears but still talking about water and water fights. They have had water fights for lack of a better term in communities like Georgia, Alabama. And I think about the Atlanta urban area with the chattahoochee shared waterways that sort of thing has that topic been elevated in our area at all or and or d for see that becoming an issue as the Charlotte region grows and users more and more water coming out of this urban area in that two hundred and twenty five miles. Yeah. You know? I do I do I so we you you brought up Atlanta. And and actually, yeah, we talk about Atlanta. But if you remember back in two thousand seven, you know, there was a terrible drought here in the southeast. And and if enacted Atlanta, very seriously, and it affected Charlotte pretty seriously. In fact, we have this great photo that shows the water intake in Belmont. And they were just a few hours essentially away from running out of water back in two thousand and seven because of that drought. And so we've been threatened before. And it seems like droughts are occurring closer and closer together. And it's not necessarily because of just rain scarcity. We think of drought is rain scarcity. But the reality is the recipe for drought is rain, scarcity plus development, you know, when you have less groundwater infiltration because you've got more impervious surface like sidewalks buildings roads. You're going to experience drought more poignantly and more frequently and that's what we're we're seeing happen. In fact, you know, North Carolina just talked to the folks at the North Carolina wildlife federation, and they mentioned that they estimate in the greater Charlotte area region, rather we are losing about one hundred and thirty acres a day of natural space to development, and that's roughly about a football field a day. We're taking away natural space and putting some form of impervious surface. And that's really impacting the river both in water quality and water quantity. So we just wanna make sure that what our organization advocates. Anyway, is that we as a city and as individual households start to, you know, implement a water conservation measures just naturally in two thousand fifteen Duke Energy and eighteen municipalities created this group called the. Guitar watery water management group, and they released a two thousand fifteen plan catava watery water management plans, kind of a mouthful, but in it. They predicted that the deadline by which the catava watery river could no longer. Meet the demands of Charlotte's growing. Population was twenty forty eight. That's you know, that's not that far away twenty forty eight and they're implementing or considering implementing some measures like increasing lake levels a bit that would extend that deadline. But that is by no means a solution. And so what we're trying to figure out is how can Charlotte grow and how can the climate change? And how can we still rely on the river to meet all of our needs. So that's going be a complicated issue that we experience here in the next thirty to fifty two hundred years, but it is something that's on our radar for. Sure. All right. We have a little quiz for you. As we finish up talking to the catava river keeper executive director, m sear which m you're kind of a renaissance woman of sorts. You're a chemist and environmentalist and attorney classically trained pianist, you're all of those things but earlier in the segment we talked to Jim or earlier in another segment we talked to. Jim zaki? Here's your test. Okay. The Panthers on November eighteenth are playing the Detroit Lions who do you cheer for as a Michigan gal from way back? Look, I have I have not been a fair weather fan. I have cheered for the lions my entire life. And it has been just a lesson in patience for me. So I'm gonna keep cheering for the lions. Fail.
