"I had no problems. Are you still with me, Johnny? Johnny has disappeared. What has happened to Johnny? Oh, no, maybe a cell phone died. All right, well, we are going to continue this discussion, if not tonight, if you can call back and get in, then certainly soon. I don't know what happened to Johnny. But yeah, it was also interesting that Charlie's business manager is a Cy Rosenberg, who was a former musician himself, and so I really took him through the lean times as well and really supported Charlie, so he was very good to him. But in any event, certainly was not above playing loose and fast with certain things. And I remember I was telling John the other day, the maddest I ever saw any songwriter get all men, I remember this like it was yesterday. Kenny Nolan, who, of course, had some hits, but back then he had written a song and when you write a song by the way, you have the right to determine who the first recording of the song will be. After that, anybody can record yourself. But the first one, the right of the first one, that's all up to you. So a songwriter wants to place what he thinks is a hopeful song with an artist that he thinks is going to actually get it into a hit. I mean, that's the way it works. And so here, Kenny Nolan thought he had placed a song with Charlie Rich. But what he actually had done was placed a song with Charlie Rich enterprises, which was sir Rosenberg. And psy decided to give it to an unknown guy, a guy named Michael Baldwin. And the record was you can't find love in the yellow pages. And you're saying, I've never heard of it. Well, exactly. That's the point. But I thought it was a very nice little rendition, Billy Sheryl produced it, but man, when Kenny Nolan found out that this was recorded, and it wasn't Charlie Rich and there was nothing he could do about it. Mad isn't the word fuming would be closer to it. So, you know, but on the other hand, the reason Charlie had money in the end was si, because psi early on had been in Columbus and liked those square hamburgers at this new chain Wendy's had brought out and so he bought the rights for all of Nashville Davison county for Charlie to on Wendy's. And got a former trumpeter friend of his Wayne Oldham to who I think been president roadway and for a while or whatever. But anyway, Wayne came in, Wayne Oldham management and mom go managed it and we had one that sold. That was all Charlie ever had to do. All right, Johnny's back. He's back. Where'd you go? I could hear you the whole time. You just faded away completely. You're gone. Well, I'm glad I'm not gone for good. Yeah, well, me too, but yeah, that's good old VOIP technology or cell phone technology too, half duplex. Oh yeah, yeah. The days of the old central office and the true land lines, sadly gone. Exactly. I did want to mention this to you. Your listeners are joined this after the news and so forth, we were talking about this calpo radio dot com and for your listeners who love true old country music, you might want to check it out. Absolutely. Really? Good. And speaking of that, have you ever heard a song that I think I heard it on a cowpoke radio? Wally Lewis was the artist and the song was Kathleen. Yeah. Now, there's two versions of it. There's one with him solo, which is okay, but there's another one with a background vocals, which is fabulous. And I think Sonny James even recorded this thing. And it was 1957. It was on dot. Yeah, now I don't know if that was the solo one or not. There was one on Sims and that song made the rounds, but it never became a hit. And as I said, other artists did it too. Let me look. You have it? I have the dot version, but let me look for I'm going to just go to see why you're looking. I'll just ramble if you don't mind. All right, that's really fine, but what I'm looking for here is what other label he would have cut this on. So it doesn't really say which is which I finally, tally. Interesting. That was it. Yep. All right. But I'll tell you one thing, Cal poke radio doesn't play as she's looking better. I don't know what's in it. Yeah, I love that song. Absolutely. Loretta lyn brother. Now, 1956, tally was in Bakersfield. And oh, that was okay. In fact, Merle Haggard, Bonnie Owens, they all started on tally. But the label was owned by a guy who was Lewis tally. And this was tally. And this was a baker's field label. So yeah, I very well may have that I'll look at that. But yeah, she's looking better by the minute. That's like 69. That's 68 69 was such a wonderful time for country. I was in country radio again in 69. Well, I loved Nat stuckey. He was my favorite. I loved his Paula stuff. Well, he went over. He changed late. Where did he go to? RCI, yeah. But don't pay the ransom money I've escaped is still just an absolute classic. And by the way, there is an R&B song. There's two of them, but especially one that just mystifies me because it was so good. And you can not find this on a Marv Johnson CD anywhere. And it was from about 63 64 and it was called unbreakable love. Okay.

Do you have a computer? No, I don't. Okay. I was going to say, you can always go to Raleigh dot net and right on the homepage or all those answers. So let's see. All right, they've been in our lives forever. Nobody wouldn't thoroughly familiar with them on a daily basis. You'd almost think they existed since before recorded history began, but even though a commonplace now, the first one only dates back to the 1700s first, what first restaurant, the first one was Casablanca.

"Charted. GN radio I'm Raleigh James and yes that is a John Denver and worse than that, although it will not come at all as a surprise to you is that mill and taffy danoff the starland vocal band wrote it. Yes, of course they did. 1973, that's probably around the time both of my other TV shows Bill and taffy were the summer replacement of course for John. The taste of the American public. So number 69 on country and number 69 on the pop charts. So there you go, Leah. Oh, I second answered it. And I do that. No, you can not. But you certainly can second it and maybe others will choose to make it a tertiary vote. That'll be fine. Oh my God. Well, you know, how on earth it sharded is completely beyond me. Yeah, I'm close too. That's just horrible. Crazy. Yes, it's called please, daddy. That's the title. Oh, it's horrible. But on to better things, did you get my email that I sent you on Sunday? I don't think so. Let me look. I will pass Albert's picture. Oh, I did get that. Yes, indeed. Okay, yes. All right. Yes. And did you get the other picture, my mode of transportation? Burned up? I probably did. Let me look for this again. Yeah, my mind packed up and left me. So let's see what we got here. Yes. And so there we are, a great radio. Fine fine radio. And let's see. No, the motor transportation, I don't know. It just comes as a question mark. So that picture didn't make it. Okay, I'll try sending it to you again. Okay. And also, you manage some you were a manager at one time if someone in country music, right Yes, not business manager. I was the promotion manager for Charlie Berger enterprises, so that was Charlie Rich and all the bands that were produced under his name. Are the rich and I forgot the name. Most beautiful girl and very special love song, although the stuff I liked was earlier like mohair Sam. Okay. Yeah. All right. And also, what is the name of that book that Mary Ann says you can take the jinx off of you? Spell in the back that she said. It's one of her books, and you can go to her website, of course Mary Ann, when she dot com, and I think you will, let's look at your books, books, books, books. Which one? When ghosts speak as a live so dead, goes I think when go speak, understanding the world of EarthBound spirits when ghosts speak. She said there was a spell in the back. Well, no, there wouldn't be a spell there would be a way to get rid of spells. Not spells, but get rid of curses. If yes, she said it was the spell, and then someone else had to do it. You could call it that. But it is a way to get rid of curses, yes. And I think that is in the back of when goes speak. But I would go to the library and get a copy. Oh, yeah. We're just going to order the book. That's why I wanted to go to Amazon because usually, you know, on the used market, you can get them for a couple bucks. Oh, yeah. Oh yeah. Yeah. Yeah, how many books does she have out a lot? No, let's see. She's got one ghost speaks, and she's got the ghost whisperer's cookbook, yes, that's right. Recipes over a hundred recipes from the dearly departed. As a live so dead investigating the paranormal and so that is one of the book of illumination, which, as I recall, was a novel, and I liked it. Ghost world's part one was also a novel, and the ice cradle was a novel. Oh, okay. I didn't know she wrote novels. So that's the deal. And can you say another one of your listeners? Like romance novels or something. I think you're thinking of sorolla, who writes zombie love stories, yes. Oh, yeah. How do you spell her name on look up her books too? And I'm trying to think, is sorolla is essay a, but I'm trying to think of her website because it's not it's named after one of the books. And I should know this off the top of my head. Oh gosh, why don't I? Oh, why don't I? Still checking this is terrible because I've read these books, how terrible of me. All right, well, I will find it out and I will definitely put that on the website. Okay. Thank you. Yeah, absolutely. I'll miss you tomorrow, but I hope you can recuperating in that time. Yeah, I'm going to try. That's for sure. I got a couple things I need to need to do tomorrow. Just discovered I've got a sense of mine. Oh, here it is. John just brought them in. Velvet heaven and velvet hammer. We have the books right here. Velvet headphones. And let me see about the website. If it comes up that way. Let's see. No, it doesn't. There's another name for the website, and I can't imagine why I don't know that. I'm still this is terrible. And sorolla is hopefully sound asleep at this point because she works in the day, but it should, it should be here. It's zombie zombie romance mystery fiction, yes. So let's see. What else do we I'm looking? Locking still checking. This is terrible. I should absolutely absolutely know this. And I'm seeing everything else, including four CD sets, which has nothing to do with velvet heaven. So all right, well, I'm failing you. And I think so. Yes. Okay, good, good, good, good, good good. It's the Joey Roxy chronicles book one velvet heaven and sorolla is SOR oya. So if you go to velvet heaven, colon, Joey Roxy, chronicles, you will see that. Joey, Roxy, chronicles. False. Yeah. Yeah, so good. I'm glad John found that. I knew it was here, but of course I can't find anything here. You should see. Well, thank you both for helping me with that information. I appreciate it. Yeah. All right, good deal. Thanks. You have a good weekend and everybody out there who's ill. You're all in my prayers. Sounds great. All right. Thank you. And yes, velvet heaven has reviews. It's a 5 star book. I think it has 7 reviews on Amazon and they're all 5 stars. So great. All right, that was a lot of fun to read and sorolla is still writing. All right, so what else do I should have known that? But there's a website too, Cena. This is a nice website I like the picture. It's like a Sunday morning and suburban Detroit and I love the picture on the homepage. And I'm not. Doing anything. That makes sense right now. So let me see. Maybe if I go to Amazon, I can see if they have a link to sorolla's website. And why am I failing this? Well, yeah, really. Like I said, my mind packed up and left me long, long, long, long, long ago. All right, so there you are, there you have. And that was her first book, and she gets some rave reviews. So I liked it. All right, so 888-876-5593. That's 88 88 Raleigh. We'll get to sharing a Naperville. We got a net in Chicago. And she's got some votes and Brandon in Chicago. He's got a vote and James on the south side. We're going to talk about some of his stories. Oh man, man. Yes, a common habit causes Alzheimer's and

"You did, really? Let's polygraph you on that, you know? He's a man of many talents. Oh man, but it was good story, though, and just it's one of those things too, you just never know, right? I mean, you think, seriously, you know, I love being from a small town area of the town I grew up in 1500 people. Just good people out there, you would never think. What's going on, you know, that Charlie Rich song, what goes on behind closed doors. What's going on behind closed doors or closed missile silos out there because there were a lot of them. I remember as a kid going by him, riding bikes by him. There were, you know, the minuteman silos, why? Because Kansas is in the middle of the United States. And it's takes longer to hit it. So we have a time to react and send missiles back. I never do that till later. And it's like, damn, now they're condos and LSD factories. Well, the other thing is, I think this chemist, you know, I don't give a piece of shit the credit mentioned in his name here. No. I think he thought he was smarter than everybody else. So you come to a small area and he thinks just because you come from a small area, you're not as smart as anybody else, and he took advantage of the people living there. And he was somewhat creative and the fact that used in the silo to produce LSD, but also hiring local law enforcement off duty as an off duty job to provide protection on the perimeter of the silo site. Create the appearance of a legitimate company. But he just thought he was smarter than everybody else and his happy ass still went to jail, didn't it? Yeah. And you know what? It's one of those things. Here pro tip to you universities out there looking to hire people. Do a damn background check. Somebody who's got convictions and is already dealing dope and you want them to be your drug control policy adviser. We call that a fail. That's a fail. And you know what? This guy, he'll be recidivist. You can think I knew that word, did you? Well, I saw you write it out right before we started. Because of his because of his ego and his superiority complex his narcissistic attitude and make a personality. He'll go back to prison forces are with. Either that or somebody will kill him. Yeah, yeah. He's too smart for his own good. But by the way, smart guy, guess where you're at, at least you were in prison caught by the dumb guys, you know, like us. Yep. Nanny nanny boo boo. There you go. All right. All right, well hey, look, if you guys enjoyed this, just head on over to our website game of crimes, podcast dot com. That's where we got guys.

"But now she said goodbye and I'm oh so lonely my baby's done left up in radio. It's the last bumper stumper of the night being a human and so I'll tell you what they all have in common, but maybe you know who he is. That part's the easy part. All right, interesting what they have in common too but as I say, I would have been stunned if someone said, oh yes, I know that. All right, so sherry and April, welcome back to WGN radio. Hi, Riley. I had to hang out before but gave it a store colony. Anyway, so I have sort of a guest for the themes while you're bumpers. Okay. Too young to know any of these. So I have three things, either unrequited love, breakups, or not being kissed. Nobody has nothing to do with the content of the music. Oh, okay, I'm sorry. Anyway, and I was going to say one hit wonders originally, but you said the redhead guy had money hit. Well, and so did the impressions. Oh my God, yes. Okay. I mean, I've been listening in and out putting on. Well, good deal. All right, and then I don't know if you'll let me comment in that lady in Wisconsin, talking about old time radio. I didn't catch her name. Okay, Stephanie. But I'll ask you to call me about that tomorrow night since I've only got two minutes left. Because I have three ideas for her. Okay, good deal. If I understood the conversation. Okay. All right. So yeah, I've got precious few seconds left. It means bill's old time radio will probably not going to get to that, but hang on Bill who knows maybe. So I want to tell you about these bumper stumpers. I'm going to tell you who they are firstly and what they have in common. And what they have in common actually, I guess I should give you the broad stroke first. Every last one of these people who had lots of songs on The Rock and roll charts was on national television this week. Different years, but all this week. Nobody Stevens was on the 1959 Dick Clark Saturday night beach nut show. The impressions, which is our second song, was on the 1965 whereas the action show where the action is show, sorry, Dick Clark and Steve Alamo. Dale Hawkins, he was also on the beach note show 1958, 1958 Dick Clark Saturday night show. Little Anthony and the imperials did if I love you, they were on the 1958 beach not show along with Dale Hawkins. The amazing rhythm aces doing lipstick traces from 1979. They were on midnight special in 1975. Johnny Taylor did I had a dream 1966 on stacks. And he was on the 1976 midnight special this week. Charlie Rich, which we just played, my baby done left me. He was on the 1975 midnight special, along with the amazing where the masons. Rusty Draper held for questioning. He was on the 1958 beechnut show. Jeanne Chandler, in 1966 constellation. He was on American bandstand 1970 this week. And the jive 5 if I had a chance to love you, 1970 on decka, flip side of their last chart record on the R&B charts in 1961, this week they were on American man stand. So all of them rock and rollers, all of them on national television. And that pretty much is going to be a wrap. So apologies to Bill. But 21 hours from now, we will do it all again. And I'm hoping you'll call until then we thank Dan for keeping us on the air. John for screening your calls. You especially for calling, I couldn't play trivia without you. I'm Raleigh James.

"Never at the time that Louis Jordan was just huge. I never thought of camp being as big. And of course, later, you know, as time went on and Lewis's popularity started to wane, that's sort of as the trajectory when cap Callaway started to start to really rise. So yeah, and not in any way to take away from Callaway. But to me, Louis Jordan had it, had it over everybody when he was in his prime. So 888-876-5593 is 88, 88 Raleigh. And that is going to take us. Let's see here too. I'll figure this out sooner or later. Let's see, to bob and Tennessee bob, welcome back to WGN. Hey, you Raleigh, how are you? All right, how are you tonight? Well, in some pain, but I'm managing it with my pain management guy. Wins fee. And number one, I like him like him right. At least he's listening in these and he will get to the bottom of this. He started me on some medication for pain that is associated with neuropathy and. Muscular and then muscular problems. And he said that it's going to take about a month for it to start taking effect. Yes, yes. Let me know how it goes. That's all I'm going to say. Okay, so yeah, good luck. Okay. Well, and then if that doesn't work, then there's an implant that holds out. I hope there's other choices between, you know, neurontin, which is the brand name Ford. And implants. There may be some other choices between those two. Well, I will ask him about that when I go back in a month to first of all. Well, I'll be curious for some people I shouldn't laugh that way because for some people gave a pen and does work, but hopefully he told you the plethora of side effects you might, you might have. Well, so far so good, I haven't had any and this is my second day on it. Well, no, that's terrific, but there's just a world of them that some people have encountered where they've said, no, thank you. But two days down and hopefully many more to go. Yeah, well, you know, it's kind of that you start out with small doses and at the thing for the first week, one pet tablet today and then the second week, two tablets day and after the third three, three tablets on out. And you can also use the extended release version. All right, I think that's what I got. All right. So anyway, that's where we are. And I'm encouraged, really. Good. Well, you know, attitudes about 90% of it, so hopefully that'll do it. You are here, we're talking about the banks that the New Zealanders air news has put in there. Now Qantas on flights have those and one of my flights I checked in into. Getting one of those, but you know how much they charge for those $3000. Well, yeah, it's different in that when you do it on Qantas, you get the birth for the entire flight. You don't get that on what they're doing with their New Zealand. Yeah, you rent the pod for four hours. You know, which is a whole and then they also, I don't know if it's a New Zealand or one of them has a deal where if you've got like a family of 5 people, they will give you some weird thing that rolls out into a bed across the seats. You know, I can't really describe it. But yeah, I think what what's happening with air New Zealand is they're trying to bring it to the economy classes. Well, right, right, exactly. And when you look at them and they say bunk beds that I'm thinking, I think they're stacking more than two. I don't know. But I don't know if I'll go for that really. Yeah, Lou Sansa had something like this. I did get upgraded clients to first class on global flights down to Australia and that was nice. Oh, yeah. Of course it is. Yeah. I have bad knees and sweet talk the attendant to upgrading me on. That's good. That they had a lot of room in first class. So what the heck? So she did that for me and that was real nice. Yeah. Really enjoyed it. And in a couple of nights ago, you were talking about early Charlie Rich tunes. Yes. My favorite early tune by him was Philadelphia baby. Oh yeah, I've got it. You bet you that's the best part of the sunset. And then next time you play multi Sam just for kicks, how about playing the answer song, but April Stevens? Oh God. I tell you what. You'll definitely get Philadelphia baby. Not promising anything. All right, well, it sounds good, Carolyn doing okay? She is, well, she's okay. She's in a lot of pain tonight. I hate to hear that. She went with me to my pain management doctor and anytime she there's a car ride. And Monica, any update on it. Well, the last time I heard, doctor Clark, Dave for yesterday and she is doing a little better. Good, you know, making progress. All right. Well, good report and hopefully the gabapentin will be just what you need, keep us posted. Yeah, I'm getting ready to take my evening dose and in along with a couple of muscle relaxers and go to bed. Yeah, just make sure you get a full glass of water every time you take that. I'll do it. Okay, thanks. You sound like you saw you sound like Carolyn. Well, no, I mean, you know, sadly, I mean all of us have probably dehydrated to some degree or another, but, you know, most people who wants to sit there and have ten ounces of water with a pill, but there are some pills where you really do want to do that. And that's one of them. Yeah, well, I'll drink whole bottle of water with it. Absolutely. Yeah, good deal. All right. All right. See you later. I know I should take my own advice, you know, here I am with a Mexican Coke in hand, thinking one was at the last time I had water. While there's water and Coke, nut doesn't count. All right, so 888-876-5593. We'll get to Cleveland Dennis and Ken in Chicago and Fran and Austin and there's room for you too coming up on WGN radio.

"888-876-5593. We're talking Johnny D and I forget what about, of course I do. I wanted to know what was the year of the Chicago world's fair that, you know, Westinghouse lit it up and Tesla. Oh yeah. Absolutely. And Westinghouse did light it up. That was that was a huge thing, and that was 1893. The world's Columbian exposition. 1893 of us? Yes. 18. Wow. That was a year to my grandfather was born in 18. Yeah, so as everybody else born in 1893, as far as I can tell. But hey, we're all you're not going to make fun of me. No I wouldn't dream of it. But no, it was a very interesting time. And somebody like your grandfather or even your father, the leaps that were made technologically were astounding in one lifetime. You know, it's like things went along forever and ever and ever and then come the late 1700s through now. It's just been like every year there is another milestone. Well, I do say, we're just at the beginning of that digital stuff. Oh, yes. You know, we won't be around. It might just throw everything so out of whack. I'm talking politics and everything. It's going to change everything. That's for sure. And right now, I think we're almost at a point where we have more scientific knowledge than we have wisdom. And so some of the stuff in the way it's being used are detrimental to the public at large, but give it give it 50 years, give it a hundred years. It'll be interesting to see how it shakes out, but I don't think it will be recognizable anymore than life before the wheel was recognizable and hominid days. Yeah. When you were saying that earlier, 'cause I really get to the point where I called you right after this, but you know, also, when you mention a will, right? Yeah. Do you know that the American Indians never discovered the will? They never, do you know that? I did not know that. That was not at all. Not totally surprising because they didn't have contact with anybody who had. Exactly. Because they crossed over from that frozen part of Alaska, something like that. Yeah. And yeah, when Christopher Columbus came, they didn't have the wheel. Right. They never used to drag things around like carts or, you know. Well, what was really interesting is when you look at the original wheel, it was more of a toy. And then there was also the wheel that was more for spinners rather than to move things. And so you have got a rolling energy Egyptian. Right, oh, absolutely the Egyptians had it. And prior to the wheel, the system of logs, the Egyptians had as well. Theoretically, that's what's moved a lot to the great pyramids. You know, I don't know, I wasn't there, but I don't believe that. I don't know how the hell they built it. It wasn't what love. Well, you know, I mean, we can claim it was extraterrestrial for all I know. The world. And I don't want to talk about that no more. I want to talk about why I called, all right? Quickly. Now, I told John when I called I said, Phil Henry. And he's all right. And he goes, I said, here we go. Not a long time. But then I rediscovered him on YouTube. 'cause I was thinking, whatever happened to your injury, all right? Yeah. The lions to laugh like when I first started listening to him. Years ago, he was on 5 70, WK Vienna and when I first heard his first couple of shows, I said, what the heck is this? Yeah. And a lot of these young voices are characters. Oh, absolutely Bobby Dooley and bob green and Ted bell. Barbara gray and yeah. Absolutely. You know, he started. It KB Ian and Ventura. He got a job in 1990. And that was one of the things you discover when you're in a small market and Ventura was small. You're not going to get callers. And so what he did, it was during the first talk about Iraq and all that. He invented Raj faheem and of course Raj faheem duty was to defend Saddam Hussein. And of course, the listeners thought he was a real person. They went ballistic day called. And yeah, yeah, yeah. It was brilliant. I was watching him being interviewed by some other radio guy on YouTube. Talking about how it all progressed, you know? Yeah, I remember you remember a guy named because I tried to do something there the other night that I was going to bring up to you. A radio executive named bob green. Which one there are several. I don't know, but he said that he got in trouble. Oh, no. He got along with bottle green. Okay. You know, because there's nothing more frustrating or I don't know. Than trying to talk to viral radio with a radio executive. Yeah. Well, the nice thing and stuff. Nice thing about bob green is it's a name that several people have used over the years, the one that was married to in need of Brian and then one who was on the air in Houston and in Detroit. While both of them were in Miami, believe me, both of them had been in Miami. So they did an image of a guy named Stephen Crane. Oh, that was a jock. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, you said he really liked him. But damn. You know, he used to do some pretty risky stuff, I guess. But then you got in trouble with the radio executives and stuff and then he had to go to some other fire or something. And then he went to some place and he goes, he was like, squeaky clean, you know, because he had a wife and kids, you know, he couldn't lose his jobs no more. Yeah, well, I think anybody worth their salt has been fired a few times. But yeah, I think the obscene Steven clean, I think, his name was Steven. That's what he said. Yeah, yeah. His name was Steven Siegel. And he did well in Boston too. I think that's where he went, Boston. Whatever happened to Bill injury. So I go to YouTube and I put him in all these things come up, okay? Yeah. I was listening last night, not last night. It was one show after another, you know, Bobby Dooley. This guy talked about his adult movie career, I forget the name of the character. Yeah, of course. And I wanted to request one song, maybe two. Charlie Rich mo here, Sam. You know I like that, yes. And then July of 12, 19 and 39, I'd like to hear again. Okay. Yeah, I'm having a transmitter delivered next month and when they said, what data do you want to deliver? I said, July the 12th, and they said, okay. It'll show up on July the 12th, 2022. Charlie Richard be proud of you. Yes. And especially Nora Wilson, who wrote it, you betcha. Whoever. Yeah. Yeah, but nobody could have seen that song like sorry. I agree. I agree. Except for maybe the guy that did Raleigh.

"Riley James That's one of my faves and Johnny D wanted to hear it again In fact he came up with his own words and we can't share them but they were hilarious But well just leave it at that But nonetheless there was a fine fine record My all time favorite Charlie Rich record actually And that was not a huge hit Got to number 21 on the pop charts It was on smash And let's see what we'll get to Johnny D here in a moment Don't Karen in Madison and Karen it was sherry and Naperville who had a terrific suggestion for you I hadn't really thought about this but here's the deal Did you do you have anything in your house like a smart device or anything that could possibly be used that could be voice activated I have Alexa All right Told by a neighbor that if she did not install it then that shouldn't be a problem Well maybe maybe not but she had access to your house It's also possible There's something else there But now before we even go down this path this is a neighbor who you had given a key to your house because you're living alone and wanted somebody to be able to help or what happens So is she the kind of person a with the kind of technical skills who could bug your house to begin with He wouldn't be better son would be Okay so now here's the next question I got another question Yeah Is there any is there anything overtly they could gain from this Just vindictive Well yeah that's okay That makes her a rotten person or what have you But you understand where I'm going Is there any like to have my house she'd like me to sign papers she doesn't want she wants me to let her do be the power of attorney Right You're not going to do that So in other words you have assets that she might like to avail herself of if she could Yeah But they're dwindling All right I won't get to the point where she could set something down and just said it there And there's enough clutter around that I would not see it And then notice that Well then she might have done that That's possible Depending on that that's kind of the end of the story Well that's frightening actually It's more than that I think you need to find a way to be able to go through your possessions to know what's there and what's not And there are ways that bugs can be determined other than other than the eye Do you have anybody in your life who is tech savvy No Okay All right Her son Yeah well obviously misplaced So what you think is you could be a victim of their chicanery and they might have access to what you are saying or doing Yes Yeah you have to have this house swept then for bugs And right I'm not a 100% sure Because see the thing is most people if you call and say this if you don't have the right words in the right way to say it they're going to think you're nuts you understand that So you know and that's another thing when you have a label and of course of course use that against I also understood So If you can parse this to where you can write it down in a couple sentences where it's not a big deal where you're saying I have a reason to believe that someone has installed a device in my home I would like to know who I can hire to determine whether that is the case It's just as simple as that You don't have to explain anything else And you might even call your local police department to ask them that And again I did do that But you didn't go on with the I think my neighbors listening listening to me did you Yes Of course they'll think you're a wacko That's what I'm saying Do not say that Just say I have reason to believe that someone has placed a listening device in my home who can I hire to sweep it Okay In other words he would like to know that Well don't do it from home Don't do that Do you have a cell phone Yes but I won't use it because she Okay All right So do you have any other Friends in the world or relatives Anybody Not the relatives I have in this town Hate me because I had to get a liar Okay Do you still have to live with this You still have the lawyer No All right I don't want that lawyer No You're going to have to get out of your house somehow even if you go to the police station in person And ask again not this story about who's spying on me and all that because you're going to sound like you're whacked Just say I have reason to believe someone has placed a listening device in my home Who can I hire to sweep it It's as simple as that Now maybe somebody else is going to have better advice but that's what you need to do But if you start out well I think people are listening to me They're going to think your fruit loops You understand that Yes Okay So you don't start like that We've now learned you don't start like that You don't have to explain why you have reason to believe someone has placed a listening device in your home Okay And that's all you say And if they say well why would they do that Here's the simple answer There are questions about assets That's all I want to say That's all you need to say And what you're looking for is someone who can sweep it You know who can come in and know whether there's anything there Right you know And if anybody listening knows of somebody who does this I assume it probably wouldn't be tremendously expensive but it's going to cost you You can pay for it right Well it would depend on how much money you're right No I understand that But I mean some reasonable amount wouldn't be terribly burdensome correct Right Okay All right I would do that Yeah So that's what you need and it should be easy to sweep And if you had somebody in your life they could do it for you And I wish I was closer but I certainly can't do anything from sitting here But yeah that's been your problem You're telling the story the way you told it to me in such a way that people are going to tune out They're never going to get to the point which is the point is very simple You think somebody has planted a device a listening device in your home and you want to know how to sweep for it That's all you want Okay Keep me posted And keep listening Thank you Sure maybe someday have a better idea Keep me posted and if I think of something else I'll shout it out I will All right thanks I will just say very quickly that green river I have drank those when I was growing up Random drug store was always here Madison when I was growing up and they made phosphates and things and greens were came out of the old time drug stores Like cresti and respect Oh yeah No that was a good old days Yes Oscar winner Yeah Ready Yeah Limes phosphates and Carrie cokes things I just want to let him know I heard that and I throw.

"Then most beautiful girl and very special love song And those three in a row put him in the million selling category and suddenly he was playing big venues except he hated the monitor or something Sara Rosenberg what about him No you didn't I managed Charlie which is promotional affairs And so psi hired me Manage his business affairs but he didn't want to be handling the bookings and handling the record promotion and all that So that's how psi hired me I had nothing to do You know when people say you manage Charlie Rich not business management I had nothing to do with his money That would have been a terrible move for Charlie But I was good as I've mentioned many times psi fell in love in 1973 with these new hamburgers The square hamburgers that he heard about up in Columbus Wendy's which nobody really knew much at the time And so he got the franchise rights for all of Nashville Davis and county for Charlie Rich That's what you did with the money And then there was a fellow horn player that he used to work with Wayne Oldham who had become like prisoner roadway ends or something So he hired Wayne to take over what they called was womp called Wayne Oldham management company to manage the Wendy's franchises And I'll tell you what when you have the entire franchises for Nashville Davidson county you're going to make some money So I've often said when they sold that the heck with Charlie's royalties his money was Wendy's And that was all That was all size doing But it was sad because at the height of fame of course one half nuts and he divorced his wife and married while it doesn't matter But bottom line is Margaret and Charlie's wife didn't like that And so she insisted that Charlie separate from sigh and all that I could see the drama going down the psychodrama And when I saw Charlie I had to go to the CMA awards show where Charlie actually on national television lit the card on fire of the winners of the category that he was announcing So about that time I thought why do you do that Because she was drunk as a skunk And so in fact the last thing I had to do after that I had to come to Chicago to an MOA convention music operators of America which are the jukebox guys I don't have to say another word about that other than I had to accept an award from them And I said Charlie couldn't be there And one of them said yeah because he's drunk And I said you got that right And so anyway that was the alcoholic Yes absolutely And there was also a dynamic between he and his wife they're both dead now so I can say that and when some managed to get Charlie sober for a while but Margaret Ann then got heavily into pills And then the cycle got around and Charlie started bringing it And that was the story And that's very sad but it doesn't take away from his music I thought his earlier stuff like July the 12th and also like my favorite mohair Sam that I played were just the ultimate But of course the hits You can't deny They called him the silver fox and he had millions and millions and millions of records sold Yeah yeah I didn't even know the guy looked like joy looked that strong up and he got like I could see why he called him so great white hair yeah yeah wonderful hair Yeah and just a very sweet guy I didn't see him that often And he would screw me over not intentionally but you know I'd have lined up something like I remember one television appearance where he had won 12 awards And they called me and asked could I line it up And I said absolutely And so I do this And the morning of the performance I get a call from someone in size office Charlie is a little under the weather He's not coming In other words he must have had a hangover extraordinaire So I had to go tell these television people that they're central performer for that day wasn't going to be there Man daggers And so I wound up having to pick up the 12 awards They were not happy And neither was I but so Charlie would do that But aside from that he was a very nice guy Probably Yeah Yeah he was He looked like a good old boy to me And Arkansas and it was sigh made him move to Memphis because after a while he moved out of west Memphis Arkansas but the problem was as Charlie started to make real money Arkansas income tax kind of lost out because Tennessee didn't have any personal income tax So he got a house in Memphis Oh that's how that happened All right well earlier in the program you played song stormy Yes I did And laughter mine a song that I'd like to request spooky Oh another question Yeah it was another classic Ford Dennis yost in the classic Ford but he Bowie song Sure I'll play it Yeah All right Now I wanted to tell you you were talking about dogs and cats a little bit Caesar's got art to write us my dog Oh dear Yeah You know I used to have him down in Caesar's Caesar palace like I told you months ago about I got a bit And I get in my recliner chair down there you know watch some TV I hang out with Caesar See there's not a dog He's a people Right right I understand So I said come on And he jumps up on like reclines and leaves a little bit open so he could get that little pad at the bottom hop up on you know Soon the only wave

what was it 46 years ago this week Oh I remember that He was on the midnight special at the height of his popularity along with Dolly Parton Leo Sierra and Alan price So there All right And thanks to Carol for all the wonderful show prep She makes me sound like I know what I'm doing Though I do remember that appearance Yeah so I was working for Charlie at the time All right Scotty anish Chicago What's up How are you doing Robbie All right how about yourself Thank you very much Gerald for records from me I really appreciate it Oh my pleasure And weird Friends You know he would stand the estimated you know Vivian was crazy about him He was on BJ at the time And Kelvin her brother he was really arranged and he really ran to meet Jake But Calvin liked it once said he didn't like to do the sad And they were there was a big a lot of times but which they had to face Oh my man And he found a door He said you know we might have it that would have hit here And then he made easy love and that just blew her man Oh yeah Well you know when we did here I stand and of course my baby likes to rock He was 17 years old Yeah right He was young Right exactly And that was two words By the way new and comers Yes absolutely Yeah I can't never call it The one just dad with the marvel lips Oh oh oh Not allowed to sort in the other lead singer No She did Don't mess with B roll And I'm sorry ever She said and forever Forever was the record the first record that she really was noticed when she was lead before that It had been almost all Gladys And then when she did it right I didn't know she did Don't miss the deal Yeah You know I don't know that I knew that either She did my baby must be a magician of course and has more so And you know what they were very nice girls And they were just teenagers so when they made mister postman I didn't know that And that was of course Motown's first number one record You bet you they had never done it before But you mentioned wade flemmons he was in the salty peppers which later evolved into earth wind and fire and he wrote over 200 songs He was very talented He was very talented And his son By the way his son lives in Battle Creek and he's a musician And when I used to be on the international he called and sent me some of his music and I played it It obviously is not like our music but it still is pretty darn good But I think for years I said hero stand was my favorite wade flemmons but now I think that other place is the one that takes me where I want to go But You may delay it Now that service I think that was the first record here we did And I think that was impressive back in him Yes it was in Curtis Mayfield wrote it Oh okay then because I know he was pretty tight because we feel because I want to know Right He made he left Chicago and went to Atlanta I don't know what he had some big records though He did And his daughter was mayor of Atlanta Right right I heard that Yeah right exactly And they were bad or real young didn't he Oh yeah it was not pretty at all As far as that goes And he went through a lot including some jail time So I know he left Chicago He's way down because we do a lot of share work together back in the day And he was on the note that was on the south side of Chicago And I think he was pretty nice gabber He was the first guy I knew that would always have a crowd with him everywhere he'd go you know hang on And entourage Yes Thank you Thank you After you get to worry about all the things you know Right And these are the first ones we went somewhere It was 15 to 20 I would have Right And then he went over to me And that was unusual back then It was It was He went over to Great Britain and did very well and then was real big on the northern soul circuit And I think it was 74 when he moved to Atlanta and it was kind of sad because they did a disco version of Playboy records And yeah and then he'd set up a label I think Al Jackson from stacks from Booker T set it up with him but then you got to run out of business and DJ Well yeah And in the case of stacks that was all because of that slimy guy from Atlantic who really really screwed stacks big time But yeah Vijay oh man Well sadly you know that was really sad That was really sad You think all of the challenges had the best news singers the best jazz Let's do us Yeah I agree When in session first come out they had to look brothers Right Right And then it just went into they didn't want to sing it But when they were to do the infection was one of the best moves you want to hear Oh I absolutely come back

"West So the Dallas tally would be inflated But yeah Chicago was it got country play and the other thing is don't forget the thing that Chicago had that nowhere else in the world had was they had a lock on the jukeboxes And why this is important to country is that for a country single traditionally a number one country single sold a 100,000 units but 85,000 of them went to jukebox operators So the MOA controlled to a degree with an iron fist what was on those jukeboxes And so that was huge with country and you can bet I used to go those MOA conventions and you know I mean meeting all these people because I knew that's where my country singles were going to land on their jukeboxes And once they were in it was a beautiful thing Well the other thing is you know it was funny No one else in Nashville courted them And I did I sent every one of them a Charlie Rich T-shirt and ashtray and you wouldn't believe the amount of jukebox operators across the country that would do anything for me You know and I thought to myself you fools Why didn't you think of this earlier So yeah You know yet I'm taking to the ground old opera and they're your friend for life Oh yeah So yeah but I've noticed when my husband was an advertising And advertising people were very very good at going to record dealios and performance stuff and any time there was free booze or free food They'd stand up and be very happy and very proud to show up But they also had real long memories Because if you did not grieve they didn't offer very long time Sure Oh no you know there are rules obviously But yes the country crossovers are interesting and how long it took You know in a way I'm mourn country being what it was because it was a unique slice of Americana today it's just male adult contemporary Well there were also so many subdivisions in countries that you don't have now Right But most of that didn't sell If you're talking about things like western swing and things like that and bluegrass you know that's nice But that's great for public radio It never really sold Yeah Yeah All right it was always good to talk to you Donna thank you You have a very good evening Thank you All right talk to you soon All right so 8 8 8 8 7 6 5 5 9 three that's 88 88 Raleigh.

"The album on which it appeared as well as some of his others are heralded in so many ways and no doubt about it Their country But believe it or not that record was number one for ten weeks on the R&B charts and no One for 5 weeks on the pop charts and it did not chart country That tells everything you need to know Ray Charles ultimately did short country in the 80s with a few things But he was recording country music from 1959 through the 80s and it wasn't until the 80s that he got any recognition for it with a Nashville or the country music annals but there I think Donna in Oakland wants to talk about Ray Charles I'm happy to do it So hello Donna Hi you were talking country earlier and suggesting some songs to a lister and I thought you had mentioned bunch of 60s people that now wait a minute Rachel's venturing into forbidden territory by his country And at the same time he lost a whole bunch of Ray Charles fans and did not pick up a whole bunch of country fans for very long time But he was one of the first people to venture to cross that gap but there were others to follow him later on Charlie Pride Well that's a whole different story Charlie Pride was a country act He didn't cross But he but the deal with Ray Charles and in fact that song from her 62 which was so big on the pop charts came from modern sounds in country and western music and there was a volume one in a volume two and 1962 on ABC He'd actually been recording country from 59 on but it was just ignored throughout the country community and ignored in Nashville So he wasn't the only one to do it Tommy Edwards was famous for it Some of the Tommy Edward stuff was just great and don't fence me in and I really don't want to know And so many other things that he did that were just wonderful But there was no room at the inn for these individuals And it wasn't A lot of people would make this make this an issue of color And that was secondary I'm not saying that wouldn't have been an issue but you don't have to get that far At the time country absolutely abhorred what would be considered popular or mainstream music Yet at the same time they lusted for that success because of how well it sold So it was a are in large part because of the use of different instruments Well that's part of it but there's a whole cultural thing You know I mentioned before When I was in Nashville I was Charlie Rich's promotion manager when we crossed him over and got him some really big hits And when he was named country entertainer of the year in 1974 and the female vocalist was living in John The country community went crazy And the dreaded Bill Anderson who I'm never liked he along with Barbara Mandrell and others formed the ace the academy of country entertainers and basically what they were saying is I like Charlie but he's not country and I always laughed at that because of course later you know you had Barbara Mandrell headlining in Las Vegas and I thought I like Barbara but she's not gantry In any event it was a cultural thing more than anything And I'll tell you where it got sad And that is that in the earlier days if you were a country star this was for life You know if you're kitty wells or if you're Ernest tubb you're going to be in the grand Ole opry until you die and you're going to be having albums and record contracts and all that And this really didn't change until last 30 or so years and the artists who were once you paid your dues and you were consented you were in a stage Right You were there forever Yes but what happened is that changed and it changed when some of these acts like Johnny Cash were still alive And they literally could not understand why suddenly they couldn't get a record contract And you know they said never happened before but it happened in their lifetime so that's the old don't wish too hard for all that crossover because ultimately it ended that caste system The other thing with Ray Charles especially was when you first started performing he took the gospel and the country music and the country companies and gospel of God will have and brought them on stage to do secular songs He ended up getting a whole bunch of people manage him Well to a degree but of course that amalgamation of country and R&B and of course you're adding rockabilly into this and what became rock and roll It was fairly common out Ray Charles before he had that you know that soulful approach to himself some of his earlier stuff on Atlantic like greenbacks I thought these were just tremendous little records and it was a very very different sound than you know hallelujah lover so which also was of course Atlantic Yeah so he went through a lot of different periods But the interesting thing like I say is that he finally charted country in the 80s but here he was with records that were number one for ten weeks that were as country as country could be and yet no AirPlay The country was on the country on country stations Southern not only southern country in general there was country throughout the country Chicago had a big country state Well back in the 50s and 60s yeah Yeah well of course you know later after the plow station WJ JD which is sort of a daytime or when they drop top 40 they went country for a while and then of course and 74 MA Q picked it up But yeah in terms of sales it was not a big selling market but I remember when I was working at epic bob lumen came into my office one day to go over sales figures And I'm showing them everything And he said in Boston Raleigh it says three three what And I said three copies bob And said well what about us today I don't know who bought the three to Titanic truth but the other thing is a lot of these locations were rack jobs So you'd see these totals from Dallas being huge and people say oh really popular now is no western merchandisers was an Amarillo and they racked most of the.

"Politan and Billy Cheryl entered the strings and all that stuff And then when Charlie Rich was entertainer of the year and crossed over it was really funny because while they always wanted the pop hits because of course that's where the money was The number one country album would sell 20,000 units and number one pop albums A million units but when they started to get that the old core country acts hated it They just resented the hell out of it And Bill Anderson who is a real jerk but anyway he started the academy of country entertainers in 1974 because he was just so aghast that Charlie Rich and that a living Newton John could win awards and it was funny Barbara Mandrell joined that organization and I had to laugh later when she was doing her glitzy Vegas shows while she was in 74 saying well I could live in Newton John but she isn't country And you know I'm looking at these Vegas shows and I'm thinking well I like Barbara Mandrell but she isn't going for it you know That was but you know the grand old opera he was always like that 'cause originally no drums and originally no electrified instruments I mean it's always been Sort of that way But where it is now is not even a shred of what it was I consider it to be male adult contemporary When you're looking for country oldies today don't play country oldies on one of those stations play classic rock because that's what the audience knows Yeah So yeah Well before rock and roll me well when rock and roll first started then there was the more collectible records rockabilly They're one thing There are a lot of you know I'm not a huge rockabilly fan but there is a whole genre of that and of course sun records in Memphis kind of spearheaded that on a national level But there's a rockabilly Hall of Fame and there's a number of acts that to this day are big on rockabilly but sure country and R&B both came together to form what was rock and roll Of course You know no doubt about it So Frank I will play your Macarthur park next Well thank you All right very much Sure It's great talking to you Likewise You call me again thanks Thank you Okay Okay all right You too So we'll get to that as a closing bumper Then we'll get to Rick and we'll get to Mike and Mount Pleasant and hopefully you too before it's all over If not again we got hockey tomorrow night and then we got me again on Thursday night including with Marianne one cows ski So that.

"The kingston trio were coming out and their song. Tom dooley won the grammy award for the country music performance of the year. Which i mean. If charlie rich was pissed about living john getting the award pill must've been pulling their teeth out on the kingston trio. You know but but it discusses show the music business. Didn't know what to make of folk yet because even though the the weavers who had the massive success in the early fifties. They got blacklisted. Pretty quickly and kind to me got lumped in with things. Like tony bennett. Doing cold cold heart or You know patti. Page's version of tennessee. Waltz is just part of that weird period where three chord country songs were a big part of the pop scene for a while and then that changed and the weavers get blacklisted. In and kept their appeal they kept call. Todd hanson Reunite do the big show at carnegie hall and in the kingston trio just explodes as this massive massive pop phenomenon. I have to think it was people who were college students in a life fifty so they they were kids. Who were buying records in. The weavers heyday in the early fifties and listening to johnny ray and buying. How much is that doggie in the window. And all that stuff. So it's not quite the pre rock and roll generation that was the kingston trio fan base. And they're kind of out. Think notice the kingston trio didn't really make transition rock now desert The beatles made a lot of things passe and the kingston. Trio's wanna yes. Yes whereas people like peter. Paul mary who come along a little later managed to keep having hits all the sixties although beverly go folk rock either other than their parody song slamming the mamas and the papas. But that's a Goes yeah yeah. They you know had leaving on a jet plane and all that kind of stuff. So let's hear another song. This is johnny cash stab at the story song genre. And this is johnny cash. Don't take your guns to town..
