"Popular Music's most individual visual talents close quote and quote an extreme example of the singer songwriter close quote who quote represents something precious a serious artist working in a popular genre close quote and by one thousand nine hundred ninety eight the New York Times declared quote subversive young artists hoping to break new ground had better just just give up because Randy Newman has inevitably been there. I close quote that same year variety asserted that he quote belongs with Dylan springsteen and Simon and on the Mount Rushmore of the greatest American rock era singer songwriters close quote and a year later. The Guardian cut right to the chase quote. He is the best songwriter in the world close quote but you don't have to trust journalists and critics just ask Bob Dylan himself who said quote there aren't many songwriters in Randy's sleek. He knows music a song Louisiana or cross Charleston Bay also known as sail away. It just doesn't get any better than that. Close Quote Newman was inducted into the songwriters hall of fame in two thousand two and the rock and Roll Hall of fame in two thousand thirteen but what is perhaps most remarkable about him is that he is just about artist prolific and celebrated as a film composer as he is a singer songwriter indeed his film scores include nineteen eighty one's ragtime nineteen eighty-four is the natural nineteen nineteen ninety s awakenings and Avalon nine thousand nine hundred eighty Pleasantville to thousands meet the parents two thousand three seabiscuit and most famously nine nine different pixar films nineteen ninety-five toy story nine thousand nine hundred and bugs life one thousand nine hundred ninety toy story two two thousand one's monsters INC for which he in his first Oscar on his sixteenth nomination for the song. If I didn't have you two thousand six's cars two thousand ten toy story three for which he won his second Oscar her for the song we belong together two thousand thirteen monsters university two thousand seventeen cars three and two thousand nineteen toy story four over over the course of our conversation at Newman's home studio sitting beside the piano on which he creates many of songs the seventy five year old and I discussed his emergence at the dawn of the singer Songwriter Era A. and why unlike most of his contemporaries he has always preferred writing and seeing songs as characters more than himself how it felt for his original songs longs to win the acclaim of critics and respect of colleagues but rarely a mass audience why it wasn't until the nineteen eighties that he finally ventured into film composing and and what led him in the mid nineties to Pixar and what he makes of his crazy two thousand nineteen in addition to scoring toy story four he also wrote. What a great song for the film. I can't let you throw yourself away. He's featured on five year plan a track on chance the rapper's debut studio album the Big Day which opened that number two on billboard's. US Chart his songs same girl was heard on an episode of HBO's Buzzy New Show Euphoria and he composed his first dramatic score in almost two decades for Noah bombecks marriage story which has emerged as one of the year's top Oscar contenders across the board and so without further Ado but with some wonderful audio snippets made available to us by Mr Newman for this milestone episode of our podcast. Let's go to that conversation. Mr Newman thank you so much for joining us great to have you on the podcast. We always begin with just a few basics. Where were are you born and raised in. What is your folks do for a living. I was born in Los Angeles and my father was a doctor and my mom took care of my brother and and I don't think there's a family more associated with movie music than yours and I wonder if we happen to have a listener who is not up on their history. Can you just share who the Newman family is. Comprised of. It's comprised of Alfred Newman Lionel Newman Able Newman when who were all film composers administrators. Lionel was head of music at Fox for forty five years yeah Alfred this one nine Kademi awards and deserve them. He was really good and he came out here. In nineteen thirty and their father was gone Sam those seven voice and three girls in the Newman family and Al came out here nineteen thirty when he was like twenty nine nine or thirty years old. There's some debate about that winning this war but then the whole family followed them and and when you were growing up where you did you see them at work as a kid yeah I did. I go on the sound stage. I remember I think I remember all about eve. A little bit of wow and a movie called the gunfighter. When I was really young I remember seeing it at the studio because it's kind of a distant western school yeah and I know I remember or like the king and I tercel. I don't know where he recorded little sure from watching them particularly. I think Alfred sounds like Eliya watching them at work. Did it make the idea of following in their footsteps appealing or did it look like something that you might not want to do well. It looked intimidating and whenever I saw him in later years you know after piano working which is what he did all day every day. He didn't seem happy back there. You know deadlines and even good as he was. Maybe because he was good. We worried about little things I mean. He played me things soon. You'll what do you think of this people counter melody and I said Yeah I mean I think so. I think it was when he was doing airport. Looms less awesome okay so now your own music education I read you know it starts out fairly conventionally. You're doing piano lessons like a lot of kids at seven or eight or whatever but I wonder what happened when you went to get actual training at Ucla where you go there but you don't finish their what was the reason reason for that lack of parking in a way I came close. They're talking about getting degree to do something but yeah I was just organized. You know people have counselors there and they say you take this. You take this then when you go to the I. I must have missed that week. 'cause I didn't have a counselor or anything and it was a bit of a mess you know the bad dream that a lot of the people have that they have a test in a class that didn't even though they had I had that how immorality and fell to us who is lenny and had he impact the direction your life. Tuck as you left school at Seventeen. Our parents were already leaps school so I was thirty eight time. I got Latin but let the parents were friends. He was his dad was a violinist in the Fox Orchestra and he was friends. Vow I guess and my father and that's how I met a lending you know we played war war and things like that and he was always remember he'd make up movies. One was called the title because I used to tease him about later. Later platform in the sky is called and he'd make them up and I listen to half years younger than He. I think there are two years. Here's to it's funny. He was the certainly the creative one between the two of us also he was braver. You know wouldn't I go to play songs for people he would have set it up and he would go like mckean judy and play the songs. It'd be very hesitant about audits of the way for a long time but he was essentially if I understand correctly like one of your big champions who said you should do more with this. Let's go to New York. Let's pitch as a songwriter will you was. I mean we went to new. York wasn't surly a pitch but I mean maybe wanted to meet or we wanted to meet. Maybe the Jerry Lieber which we did and did play him some songs I think for and against them on depending leafing well so you do now at that point go to work as a songwriter for higher centrally. At what point did you realize realize maybe I should start singing my own songs too. I started sort of a contract song. We're going to have sixteen seventeen so I'm still going to school and and I never necessarily that I can recall lenny would remember better than I thought. Oh I should be singing recording. I I don't know whether I ever did a couple record. Companies thought that it might be possible and warners and I signed with the wars and this was the dawn of the whole singer-songwriter. I want to read back to you. Something something that you said that I thought was interesting quote. When I started out I was certainly an of Carole King. If I ever had a hero of any it kind it was her close quote. You've also said that your nine hundred and sixty five Song Simon Smith and the amazing dancing bear was quote the first song I wrote where I wasn't trying to be carole king. It was the first song I wrote that sounds like me close quote why was Carole King such an influence and then what it means to sound like what she did yeah electricity fons record and all that kind of thing I liked seem like in those days we were interested in changes changes and she she knew the literature she knew the Song Literature Preceding Nineteen fifty four preceding rock and roll and she had enormous melodic talent Alan. I thought so that was what I mean hero. You know I don't know but that was scratching for an answer right but certainly someone I admired and aspired to be like I thought but I wasn't like her well. I guess the thing that you ended up doing doing differently starting with Simon Smith. It was slamming Smith. I say that because I remember it but I think there's other songs a little odd but before remember what they are but when you say this thing that you were doing that was unusual maybe not unique but unusual was essentially writing from the perspectives of people other than yourself exactly right as you were coming up where other people doing that. Where did the idea even for that come from the other no shyness Shi'as. Maybe yeah I mean. I don't know where it came from. I tell you when I I I know I read things were they. Had that really interested stood me. The Alexandria Quartet for instance where there's four different books different characters perspectives on things and things are not as they seem to. I can't do that in a song necessarily but it interested me you know sometimes aberrant personalities and the guy with the barest harmless but it's exploiting someone somewhere or some bare but I found that interested me and what I write something that pure me. It's difficult will fit. Saul snob to some answers. They wouldn't think big ways amazing calphalon. Is there any reason why you're drawn seems to not only writing from the perspective of others but the perspective generally early of others who are not always the most upstanding enough people well. It's more interesting to me than Heroes Yeah Yeah. I kind of don't believe in it heroes. I've always thought that it's a little I like it better. You know when you're playing tune audience audience theoretical entirely but I mean you don't want to be up there pontificating. Even though you're raised up I like to be on the flats. You know on on level with the idol really like did you can't see but but yeah see. I've always thought mistakenly the anyone could get my song. I mean what's hard about him. There it is my life is good guys. Clearly not someone you'd along. You're bowling team. You know what I wonder is when you started doing this kind of music in your twenties. I guess it would be where these personas zone is a reflection of your own mindset at that time because I've read. You've talked about another interviews. You had something like a dozen car accidents by the time you you were first breaking through. You've said you were a heavy drinker. Were you. Were you upset. About what was your life. I got got songs out of it when I was trying to. I guess with purdue juvenile offenders look at night and I heard my father come in to get me. He said whereas my angry mad that I didn't know what it was. I was unlucky. Lucky you get caught with that. Everyone else did and I don't know what I was angry about today the truth right but yes I was angry. I knew a lot of other people who were chair. I wasn't a heavy drinker. I would say I couldn't have done that but you know we drink drink on the weekends standing outside our cars. You know that was a We'll talk about how the first studio album self-titled came about and also how I guess it came to include a song that maybe is this covered almost any of yours. I think it's going to rain today a which had already been around for a while. You'd already done it yeah..

about what aspect of that area do you feel is over look we'll get our callers on who knows you a couple questions we want you to respond to and social media or here with your calls and let's begin with Neil Neil you're on the morning yes two questions first I am I correct in thinking that the British government of that era was a little more restrained in a little more democratic than most governments around and second were there any freedman freed slaves in living in the in in America and the American colonies in that time yeah well the answer to the second one is yes there were freed men there were quite a few in northern colonies and there were some in the south you know you've got a place like Charleston where in the low country of South Carolina more than half the population was black but there was among them some Friedman and some of them actually later would fight in the Continental Army was a contentious issue whether they would be permitted to or not and finally Washington was desperate enough for men that he agreed to allow blacks under certain certain circumstances to the fight the British government I mean Britain in general was an enlightened monarchy was a constitutional monarchy the reforms of sixteen eighty eight meant to the king was no longer an absolute monarchy had to pay attention to both houses of parliament the lords and the Commons he had to pay attention to his cabinet his ministers they really ran the government he was intended to be more of a vice re titulaire figure in George's case he's really driving the train when it comes to the revolution is the hardest of the hard liners but there are no checks and balances it's you know it's a flawed democracy the percentage of of men who can vote is relatively small the percentage of women who can vote is zero they they it's a society that's in some ways less enlightened than even American colonial society in the sense that a larger percentage of Americans are literate a larger percentage of American man can vote and hot and they do hold property than their British counterparts but now having said all that Britain is a it's a vibrant thriving ascendant society it's in seventeen seventy five it's right on the verge of becoming you know the industrial power of of the world and it's a fascinating place to to to to read about to learn about them and it makes it all the more extraordinary that the rebellion succeeded against them because they really are a powerhouse of the greatest navy the world's ever seen and they were also in terms of enlightenment given to torture and all those kinds of things that often go with war plus when you have them with their Hessian soldiers are paid soldiers about ready to go to New York to ready to rape and kill and plunder you know the British are coming the title of this book is not something the Paul Revere cried in the middle of the night on April nineteen seventy seventy five he rode through middle sex outside of Boston to alert people to the British Army coming out what he is quoted as saying is the regulars are coming out the regulars meaning the regular British Army but to me it's a metaphor because that's really what the first couple years the war about the British are coming they're coming with a substantial portion of that greatest maybe the world's ever seen with a majority of a very fierce army with thirty thousand German mercenaries and they're coming to kill your men to rape your women to destroy your homes to plunder towns in some cases to burn your towns so it's it's a no kidding a war and they are determined that the insurrection will not succeed and it has with it all of the heart breaking all of the terrors and horrors of of any war and those are the British shortcoming and we'll go to more your calls let me go next to Roger who show any from the city right you're welcome you're on the air thank you I'd like to narrow of what importance that the French play in our success in the revolutionary war thanks Roger well they play a big part the French want nothing more the French meaning Louis the sixteenth who has become king as a young man and and version and who is his foreign minister and the entire French apparatus they want nothing more than to avenge the loss of of the seven years war when they have been humiliated by Britain they have had to surrender Canada half a billion fertile acres west of the Appalachian Mountains very sugar islands parts of India and so they are living to to of Ben's those losses and beginning in seventeen seventy six they start to surreptitiously provide money arms and other war materiel after the battle of Saratoga which is in the fall of seventeen seventy seven when a British Army coming down from Canada is is trapped and utterly crushed the French will overtly come into the war and at that point you know they're they send their good good portion of the fleet they send a number of talented experienced officers like Lafayette arrives here famously and then the Spanish who are their allies in in Europe will also come in to the war on behalf of the rebels are against the British is what it amounts to so the French involvement is the bagel biggest single factor in ultimate success of the revolution over the eight year period particular in the last several years of the war this is a fair to say the single biggest figure in bringing them in was Ben Franklin a true Franklin is sent to France in December seventeen seventy six he's the most famous American the world he may be the most famous British subject in the world of of course he doesn't think Vince as a subject any longer because of his scientific achievements sees is world famous and he shows up with the the mandate from Congress to persuade the absolute monarch Louis the sixteenth to make common cause with radical Republicans in America and he's quite brilliant and he is our first diplomat he is and remains our greatest diplomat and he is largely responsible for the success in bringing the French into the campaign on our side hi Ben Franklin worry when we really here's Matthew right to your guess speak about the large guns there to try to George Washington commanded his troops to get and drag back in the winter yeah they weren't near Detroit though they were near Ticonderoga which as much as they can and then take a yes that's right Ticonderoga is of a big force had been changed hands between the French and the British during the French and Indian war how the American rebels captured it within the initial weeks of the revolution beginning and they had a lot of of old guns there and Washington sent overweight Boston bookseller name Henry Knox who had a knack for gunnery in the middle the winners and said seventeen seventy five seventy six to get those guns and to drag them by sled and bring them by boat back to back to Boston to Cambridge and it's a wonderful story is extraordinarily important in forcing the British to abandon Boston because they wake up one morning and they're the guns on the high ground overlooking Boston commanding ground at Dorchester heights and that's early March of a seventeen seventy six six and within two weeks they have evacuated Boston so it's a it's a terrific story guesses Rick Atkinson and his terrific stories called the British are coming up John wants to know can you comment on the role of the battle of Almansa North Carolina to the revolutionary war yeah well I can I can tell you that you know in North Carolina there's a there's a wonderful side show that's very important to the to the to the outcome in the first years of the war the British get in their minds that there is a large residual loyalist population in the south and it's true in North Carolina their number of Scottish emigres who settled in the Piedmont and their places in South Carolina also so they sent an expedition the expedition is very poorly conceived it's very poorly coordinated when the bulk of the troops arrive from from Britain there's already been of a battle that has seen the defeat of the largely Scottish loyalists it has ended the hopes of the British of had to is to flip North Carolina back into the British camp the same happens in South Carolina they go farther south they try to take Charleston there's a battle Solomon's island which is a barrier island at the mouth of of Charleston bay the Royal Navy is handed above really damaging defeat there have heavy casualties severe damage to the ships from the the shore guns at the Americans are are manning along Sullivan's island so the combination of those defeats means that and and other problems in Virginia means that the British are forced out of the south almost entirely until seventeen eighty so there's gonna be several years in which Washington first of all is able to draw troops and sustenance and money and and everything that he needs to wages war farther north because the British are not a factor in the south now they're gonna be back and they're gonna be back with a vengeance you know some people will realize how small the American fighting forces were I mean it never really reached any larger than about twenty thousand troops and fell down one point two three thousand yeah that's true in a country of two and a half million people yeah ruined Washington's retreat across New Jersey in December of seventeen seventy six after he has been roundly of thrashed in New York and forced out of New York he's down to fewer than three thousand men at one point when he rallies is of force and crosses the Delaware later that month he's only got fifty six hundred all altogether in only about half of them get across the Delaware so it's a small force gives you a sense first of all the scale of of of battles and and warfare in the eighteenth century in America it's not the massed armies the the conscripts armies that we will see a couple decades later in the day polyphonic wars much less the civil war but he's he's working with you know it's a thin reed that is to to to try to defeat the power of the British Empire okay this is Rick Atkinson is new book is the British are coming the war for America Lexington to Princeton seventeen seventy five to seventeen seventy seven and hears.

"What figure battle from the revolutionary war? Do you want to know more about what aspect that? Erie you feel over. Look, we'll get our callers on those couple of questions, we want to respond to social media or here with your calls, and let's begin with nail nail you're on morning. Yes. To questions. I a my correct in thinking that the British government of that era was a little more restrained and a little more democratic than most governments around and second, where there any feed men feed slaves living in the in America in the American colonies, and that time. Yeah, well, answer to the second one is yes, there were freed men and there were quite a few. You in northern colonies. And there were some in the south there, you know, you could go to Charleston where in the low country of South Carolina. More than half. The population was black but there were among them, some Friedman. And some of them actually later would fight in the continental army. It was a contentious issue, whether they would be permitted to or not. And finally Washington was desperate enough for man that he agreed to allow blacks under cert- certain circumstances to, to fight the British government. I mean Britain in general was an enlightened monarchy was a constitutional monarchy. The reforms of sixteen eighty eight minutes of the king was no longer an absolute monarchy had to pay attention to both houses of parliament, the Lord's and the comments he had to pay attention to his cabinet his ministers. They really ran the government, he was intended to be more of an advisory. And titular figure in Georgia's case he's really driving the train when it comes to the revolution is the hardest of the hard liners, but there are checks and balances it's, you know, it's a flaw democracy. The percentage of, of men who can vote is relatively small the percentage of women are converted. Zero. They, it's a society, that's in some ways, lessen lighten than even American colonial society, in the sense that a larger percentage of Americans are literate a larger percentage of American men can vote, and, and they do hold property than their British counterparts, but having said all that Britain is a, it's a vibrant, thriving, ascendant society. It's in seventeen seventy five it's right on the verge of becoming the industrial power of, of the world, and it's a fascinating place to, to, to, to read about to learn about, and makes it all the more extraordinarily that the rebellion succeeded against them because they really are powerhouse. They have the greatest navy the world's ever seen, and they were also in terms of enlightenment given to torture, and all those kinds of things often go with war. Or plus, when you have them with their hessian soldiers paid soldiers about ready to go to New York. They're ready to rape and kill and plunder. You know, British, you're coming title of this book is not something that Paul revere. Cried in the middle of the night on April nineteen seventy seventy five road through Middlesex outside of Boston to lurk people to the British army coming out what he is quoted as saying the regulars are coming out the regulars, meaning the regular British army, but to me, it's a metaphor because that's really what the first couple of years, the war about the British are coming. They're coming with a substantial portion of that greatest navy. The world's ever seen with a majority of a very fierce army with thirty thousand German mercenaries, and they're coming to kill your men to rape your women to destroy your homes to plunder your towns and some cases to burn your towns. So it's, it's a no kidding awar-. They are determined that the insurrection will not succeed and. It has with it all of the heartbreak and all of the terrors, and horrors of, of any war. And those are the British shore coming and we'll go to more your calls. Let me go next to Roger who shoney's from the city. Roger welcome, you're on the air. Yes, thank you. I'd like to know what importance that the French play in our success in the revolutionary war? Thanks, Roger where they play a big part. The French want. Nothing more. The French, meaning Louis, the sixteenth who has become king as a young man, and, and virgin, who is his foreign minister and the entire French apparatus. They want nothing more than to avenge, the loss of, of the seven years war. When they have been humiliated by Britain, they have had to surrender Canada, half a billion. Fertile acres, west of the Appalachian mountains, various sugar islands parts of India and so they're living to, to avenge those losses and beginning in seventeen seventy six they start to syrup tissue sleep provide money arms and other war material after the battle of Saratoga, which is in the fall of seventeen seventy seven when a British army coming. Down from Canada is is trapped and utterly crushed the French will overtly come into the war, and at that point, they send they're a good portion of their fleet. They send a number of talented experienced officers, like blah arrives here famously, and then the Spanish who are their allies in, in Europe will also come into the war on behalf of the rebels against the British is what it amounts to. So the French involvement is the biggest biggest single factor in alternate success of the revolution over the eight year period, particularly in the last several years of the war, fair say the single biggest figure bringing them in, Ben, frankly, a true Franklin is sent to France in December of seventeen seventy six he's the most famous American in the world. He may be the most famous British subject in the world. Of course, he does. Think of himself as a subject, any longer, because of his scientific achievements he's world famous and he shows up with the, the mandate from congress to persuade the absolute monarch Louis the sixteenth make common cause with radical Republicans in America. And he's quite brilliant out. He is our first diplomat. He is in remains our greatest diplomat. And he is largely responsible for the success in bringing the French into the campaign on our side, then Frago were you when we really need to Matthew writes, your guest, speak about the large guns near Detroit, the George Washington, commanded his troops to get dragged back in the winter. They weren't near Detroit, though. They were near Ticonderoga which has been cannon taika. Yes. That's right. Ticonderoga is a big four two been changed. Hands between the French and the British. During the French Indian war, the American rebels captured it within the initial weeks of the revolution beginning, and they had a lot of old guns there and the Washington sent overweight, Boston bookseller named Henry Knox, who had a knack for gunnery in the middle of the winners, and seventeen seventy five seventy six to get those guns into drag them by sled and bring him by boat back to, to Boston to Cambridge, and it's a wonderful story, extraordinarily important in forcing the British to abandon Boston, because they wake up one morning, and they're the guns in the high ground overlooking Boston commanding ground at Dorchester heights. And that's early March of seventeen seventy six and within two weeks, they have evacuated Boston. So it's, it's a terrific story. Guess Rick Atkinson and history story. Has called the British coming. Joan wants to know. Can you comment on the role of the battle of L Monson North Carolina to the revolutionary war? Yeah. I can I can tell you that, you know, North Carolina. There's a there's a wonderful sideshow. That's very important to the to, to the outcome in the first years of the war. The British get in their minds that there is a large residual loyalist population, the south and it's true in North Carolina. There number of Scottish immigrants who settled in the Piedmont and their places in South Carolina also. So they sent an expedition the expedition is very poorly conceived. It's very poorly coordinated when the balk of the troops arrived from from Britain, there's already been a battle that has seen the defeat of the largely Scottish loyalists. It has. Ended the hopes that the British had to flip North Carolina back into the British camp, the same happens in South Carolina. They go farther south, they try to take Charleston. There's a battle Sullivan's island, which is a barrier island at the mouth of, of Charleston bay. The Royal Navy has handed of really damaging defeat there have heavy casualties severe damage to the ships from the, the shore guns at the Americans are, are manning along Sullivan's island. So the combination of those defeats means that and, and other problems in Virginia means that the British, you're forced out of the south almost entirely until seventeen eighty so there's going to be several years in which Washington, first of all able to draw troops and sustenance and money, and everything that he needs to wage his war farther, north because the British are not a factor in the south, now they're going to be back, and they're going to be back with. Vengeance. You know, some people don't realize how small the American fighting forces were, I mean, it never really reached any larger than about twenty thousand troops and fell down one point two three thousand. Yeah, that's true country of two and a half million people. Yeah, in Washington's retreat across New Jersey in December of seventeen seventy six after he has been roundly of thrashed in New York and forced out of New York, he's down to fewer than three thousand men at one point when he rallies his force and crosses the Delaware later that month, he's only got fifty six hundred all altogether and only about half of them, get across the Delaware, so it's a small force, it gives you a sense. First of all the scale of battles and warfare in the eighteenth century in America. It's not the massed armies, the conscript armies that we will see couple of decades later in the depaul onic wars, much less the civil war. But he's, he's. Working with. It's a thin read that he's got to try to defeat the power of the British empire. I guess, Rick Atkinson is new book is the British are coming war for America. Lexington to Princeton, seventeen seventy five to seventeen seventy seven and here's need a need welcome. You're on form. I, I understand the female sense, fatal about on both sides on the British the American tied, particularly interested in, in any connection or any value that American God, particularly with Ben Franklin others that made connections in, in Paris. With French be Mason and to common cause of freedom. In the American colony freemasonry, was, it was unifying element among white men who are aspiring to do, great things was a part social club part part secret society part of college fraternity. So Washington was a devoted Mason. Franklin was too many of the founders were were Masons. And you're right. When Franklin, first of all, he lived in London for more than sixteen years, he returned to America in the spring of seventeen seventy five. In fact, when he arrived in Philadelphia, the war, and already begun at Lexington and concord and his masonic connections were important to him in London, and then they were important also in, in Paris. It's an. Entree form. It's, you know, the secret handshake in the fraternity of freemasonry suggests brotherhood, and it's an interesting aspect of their culture. It also suggests that they've got shared beliefs in there's a kind of liberalism underlying much of what freemasonry stands for so yeah, you're right. Here's Ellen who writes, just finished Rix, book fantastic, as other books, have been well, written and grossing. Very informative incredible amount of boots on the ground detail with quotations and source material. That helps make the work very readable. Lemme think on ale and go right to another caller. And that's norm norm. Join us you're on the air. Hello. Thank you very much. This is my first contact with the author and I'm interested in the book, and I have two questions. One is as to the quality of their tackle pack. I'm sorry. Typical command on both sides, a Washington try to too much with too little. For the most potent. Put it in the Clinton. Really didn't have money to something. Push the heart as they could have to put their foot of cockroach as it were wholly on the cockroach was available. My other question with respect is. The author has been accused of inventing details of his detailed narratives, and I've read across other authors who do that. But I would like to get his his of side of, of, of accusation personal. Thank you. Thank you, first of all, known as accused me of inventing detail. That's a serious accusations. You can go look Joe Ellis's just one of the finest scholars on the revolution. You can look at the review that he did on the front of the New York Times book review a couple Sundays ago and he'll give you his opinion on that, where he writes about my writing style, but he goes back and checks, the hundred and seventy five pages of notes bibliography at the end to make sure that I have not done precisely that. And if you've got an accusation, specifically, I'd be happy to hear about it, and rebut it. I remember reading review or somebody's talking. And you do have an obelisk style. As I says, saying about blood on the boots, and how did you know there was blood on the boots. That benefit I was Ellison's review Ellison Ellison's review. Okay. Yeah. But I mean those kind of details often come in, and are really an organic part of what you're writing about and everything in there is sourced. I mean you look at the end notes and the notes are endless, and you wanna know how I know about blood on the boots. Look at the end note about anything else. Look at the end though. It's there a lot of notes. Well, and it's very expensive for publishers to do that. But we do it so that we were precisely so that we can avoid that kind of aquisition great review by Ellis to get reviews, someone of that stature, especially I must be thrill was, here's Bernie writes, my ancestor fry Taylor.

Six hundred twenty thousand union and confederate soldiers dead. Ouch. Indeed. On ninety eighteen sixty five apparatus Virginia confederate general Robert Lee, surrendered his twenty eight thousand troops to union general Ulysses grant, effectively ending the American civil war forced to abandon the confederate capital Richmond blocked from joining the surviving confederate force in North Carolina and harassed constantly by union cavalry Lee, had no other option and nine April eighteen forty two at the beginning of World War Two in the Pacific. Major General Edward king, surrendered at Bataan Philippines against General Douglas, MacArthur's orders and seventy eight thousand troops sixty six thousand Filipinos and twelve thousand Americans the largest contingent of US soldiers ever to surrender were taken captive by the Japanese the prisoners were at once led fifty five miles from Maraval is on the southern end of the peninsula to San Fernando on what became known as the Bataan death March at least six hundred Americans and five thousand Filipinos died because of the. Extreme brutality of their captors who starved beat and kicked them on the way, those who became too weak to walk. We're being at those who survive were taken by rail from San Fernando POW camps where another sixteen thousand Filipinos in at least one thousand Americans died from disease mistreatment and starvation after the war, the international military tribunal. Established by MacArthur, tried Lieutenant General Masaharu commander of the Japanese invasion forces in the Philippines. He was held responsible for the death March a war crime and was executed by firing squad on April three nineteen Forty-six and on eight April nineteen forty four again World War Two Russian forces led by marshal Feodor to Bulkin attack the German army in an attempt to win back by the southern Ukraine. Attack would result in the breaking of the German defensive lines. Just four days eventually, sending the Germans for treating Crimea was territorial plaything of many great powers from the Ottoman Turks to the rush of Ivan the third it had declared its independence in nineteen eighteen but was occupied again by Germany nineteen forty one. It was liberated by the Russians only to find trapped within the greater Soviet Union. It once again declared itself, independent Republican the nineteen ninety s and it's still a play thing for the Russians on eleven April. Nineteen sixty three one hundred troops of the Hawaiian base. Twenty fifth infantry division are ordered to temporary duty with military units in South Vietnam to serve as machine gunners aboard army h twenty one helicopters. This was the first commitment of American combat troops to the war and represented a quite escalation of the us commitment to the war in Vietnam. And that is military history today. Okay. Skip it's time for the armed America report lead us there. Boy, all of us here at frontlines of freedom. One our listeners to get trained and armed in that order, we fully support the. Right to keep him bear arms for all law-abiding families. And we encourage you to find out about the laws governing use of deadly force in your state and follow them to let her. And of course, don't forget the follow the rules of safety and common sense. Whenever you're carrying a firearm to protect the ones you love. What story this week Colonel an armed citizen provided timely aid to a store employee who assaulted by two shoplifters in Loomis, California, a man and a woman walked into a store and apparently with over fifty dollars worth of goods store employees confronted the pair over the alleged theft and was attacked by the mail shoplifter with a knife. As the pair scuffled. The woman picked up the knife unit attempt to injure the worker as well a bystander with a concealed carry permit. Saw the incident and drew a firearm ordering the woman to drop the knife in remain where she was author soon arrived and arrested the pair for multiple criminal violations. Thanks, carol. This scenario gives us a good opportunity to examine the science of knife-attacks more closely injuries produced by pointed objects or objects with sharp edges. Have referred to as sharp force injuries. Sharp force injuries are characterized by a well-defined traumatic separation of tissues occurring. When a sharp edged or pointed object comes into contact with the skin and underlying tissues. Three specific subtypes of sharp force injuries exist stab wounds incised wounds and chop wounds, ordinary kitchen knives are the most common weapon used in sharp force injuries. Probably because they are readily available easy to use and inexpensive divide most stabbings occur because of intentional violence or through self infliction. So how much pressure is needed to break human skin and caused lethal damage not much according to Dr as link and night engineering lecturer at University College Dublin he has developed a formula to calculate the minimum force needed for blade penetrate. Bearskin in a stabbing incident, quote, my research showed that the force required to stab bearskin is surprisingly low is in the order of ten to twenty two. Newton's which corresponds to the weight of a bag of flour of one to two kilos in your hand. After doing the math. I realized that it takes only one or two pounds of pressure to break the skin assuming the knife is pointed and sharp once you go through the skin the blade will continue under its own momentum until it encounters something hard like bone the attacker in this case was a woman in general women are physically weaker than men. However, they are certainly strong enough to exert pounds of pressure on a knife. That's pressed against your skin, the technical moral of the scenario. Here is do not underestimate a knife attack. They are deadly. Also, do not assume a woman with a knife is no danger to you. That's just not true, a sharp knife in the hands of a man or woman is more than capable of causing death or serious bodily injury. I think I will agree with that. And stay away from people who have those sharp pointy things that wanna hurt me movie. This month is say by it's a story of the Philippines. Please go to the frontlines of freedom website, go to the blog. Get the link you can watch it for free. We'll review it at the end of the month. And I really appreciate your input next frontlines of freedom.
