"Lose so be it. We'll we'll fight next week I don't think it does any good to double the ticket by using the union. Like I said I'm just GonNa go with warm and move on well and and there's there's not not just the talent level question or or positive associated with warm in this spot there's also a pace factor because mortal storm is the only speed and essentially the situation for Alex. CINTRON is the set up shop and just you know basically pick and choose when to attack mortal storm because Really warm is tactical speed and can sit close You know one the last time they tried the you know this this distance. There's a lot to like about this spot for warm. I very much agree and especially for those that there are going to try to tip toe around on budget issues. We stay at Laurel and go right to the ninth. And in this case another opportunity going the flat flat mile but these are twenty five thousand dollar maidens had this four three as the as with with the one at the B I. I went with bold trek. I know his lone dirt race. Wasn't you know VAT good But you know let's just look at it from a buyer perspective whether you like them or you don't like him I I use them as nothing else. As a point of reference this guy was beaten a length of a stretch but he ran forty two so the race was obviously sleep. Superfast seven on the rocks off the screen puts up a big number and now bowl. Trek goes to the TURF. Any really has improved in the run last time where he got out the two turns Really really improved. So I think he's going to have foundation on the cutback there will be a demanding one turn mile Enslave at the bottom line is I don't really trust any of the dirt courses either You know I'm kind of trying to get maybe a little funky look for a fresh new face here and Dan Smith we know how good of a job he does..

"Let's go to Randi cop. Thank you. Randy get after noon. Thank you for taking my call got two items that I'd like to cover with you go. I'm in the process of looking for car, I can either go new or used so for the new I'm looking at Honda Accord and wanted to find out if you had a dealer or contact that you want to recommend court. Of course, I do. You wanna go down and see Dan Smith at Huggins, Honda over and Hearst. Very good. That was easy. Dan's good guy, Dan's guy, my buddy, David albatross who have had on the show many times general manager there. I've known Ronnie Huggins, I've known Ronnie since he was a pup. I was there when the original dealership open back in nineteen eighty or eighty one. So very good. That's that's an important year for me because that's when I graduated well as a matter of fact for those old enough to remember, gene Huggins had moved here. I want to say North Carolina, and there they had a band there back when dealerships did stuff like that? And Jerry max lane played to the crowd. So they were doing country and western music for people buying Hondas. Well, I'm not sure that actually lined up, but we all knew Jerry max. And he was a good guy. So ask for Don. Smith, not run. But Don Smith, Dan as in. Yes. Dan smith. Okay. All right next question. I'm also considering used car I live CD players. I've got too many CD's don't. Randy. You were living in the past baby. You know this. I know a mind a modern CD player is your smartphone. No. But okay, now, you know, I do a moment. Rock and roll history. Right. Yes. And also do classic tracks in the first hour of the show. So if I can't it all the CDs in the CD racks in my studio, how many would you guess I would have thousand about fourteen hundred fifty CD's. Okay. When was the last time, you think I've pulled a CD out of my CD racks, the cover a good portion of the wall. Oh, two years ago. Maybe fifteen. And I would take them to half price books. Other than the fact I don't need to be ripped off that bad and spend four hours getting ripped off that bad. But I simply put them into my computer, and it actually translates into a little over eight hundred songs. When I got rid of all the duplicates. I have time to do that. I've got a lot of seedy I had over fourteen almost fifteen hundred of them now. Wait a minute. Wait a minute gets better. I actually went and dated the songs. So if I want to say, I'm looking at music from nineteen sixty five I only have to type and die tunes. Nineteen sixty five and pulls up every song from that year. I have the Mark all the way back to the eighteen nineties because I actually have some songs off the old literally gramophones at Addison made though I have lost and clean, and they're dated back to the eighteen nineties too. But I might need to find a specific song from specific year more than you will Randy. Well, yeah. And and what it is. If they're if they worry used car out there that had a CD player in it that you would recommend what would that be Hicabi? And who might contact to look at something like that? Okay. Randy. I don't know which cars still have CDs. I know my Mitsubishi Electric cars seven years old, and it has a CD player in it. Aspirin. How many CD's I put in it? Zero. There you go. So the thing is changed. Because now on my phone. I have on my phone one hundred twenty songs that I really really like, right? Right. And but my phone is big enough on the size. I could probably put a thousand songs on it. And when we got my wife's Jag, and I'm gonna give Jaguar credit that was the easiest connection between a phone car. I've ever seen it was instantaneous. And so you simply pull up your your phone on the dash. And you say here's a playlist. I wanna hear and you're good. You could you could put enough phones. Enough songs in your phone to drive from here LA and never repeat. You talking to instill has a four so and I'm proud of you. But it's it's a new century Randy. Oh, okay. Remember, I started on eight track tapes right here. How bad are those awful? There you go. But I started on eight track tapes. And I got hip I got cassettes, then I got slightly hip because I had a CD player fairly early on when they had no warmth to them Randy when they're pretty staticky pretty digital sounding. And then I found out you can put all this in the computer, and it's all at your fingertips instantaneously. Little quality. When it went to that MP3. format. There's no doubt an MP three four. Matt is not like listening to the master tape before it was mastered to make the MP three format, but if you're into tunes, they also have the AFC format, which is an even smaller file, and it is slightly cleaner. However at our age our ears of deteriorated enough MP threes, probably sound, okay. To us. Thank you. I appreciate you. Okay. Randy have a good weekend, buddy. We'll be back in a.

"So much for taking the time. And it's a pretty exciting time to be talking with you because your song happier with marshmallow is at its number three peak on our billboard hot one hundred and the song is just absolutely everywhere. So first of all just tell me when you realize what phenomenon this song had become. Good question. I guess everyone that we've worked who's been excited about this own for a while. But I guess we'd be rund in working on on you album. And I'm writing for people, and they don't. Was that a little bit connect you for that? I guess I guess those appoint what song was just to buy because I've been a hundred nothing more more until I was aware of like us. This is on the radio quite in the UK. And I guess just getting a little of love messages from eleven people. But I think collaboration we we collectively bound to a couple of weeks off on call people play went of backpacking on because whereabout I said PD's to play an Orleans like some nights in in India. So which was anybody fun, but just hearing it out was like out of shop on and having that made stole, you know, we're lucky that it's just I'm ready. Well, I am big like filial have nothing in the back of Leka took two. Dropping John in like a small Indian talent start off. Yeah. It was just an amazing. See how it's done pretty radium. I yeah. I mean, it truly is a global like you said just, you know, happening to here in India. How did how did you invest? You'll end up working with marshmallow in the first place. Excuse me. Sorry. I read this song a lie. No, wait, pack, dealing mind. And like I said kind of everyone knows he was just very adamant that it should be something in all well that just couldn't quite fail. Totally like with like on that groups will kind of you know, us completely. So the me I was just kind of quite adamant that it should be a abrasion on. I'm reading video like. The productions by. Particularly funding state of it can eat him. And that was the point you care that scene in the one that you Davis. It goes coaches. Unavoidable, innovating noise and spend anything bit of of the of the kind of deejays in ADM people around. But he was something. Interesting different kind of hip been eating and untasteful about his stuff. You know, we go talks with him something in its version. And yeah, he was like he's pretty much Qiuping start on like, let's get working this. Yeah. Like look back and forth quite a day. He read the draw you tried the different drugs. I on the original star service that he weighed had like basically had like five sections that cycle out of the Dettori runs through these this is this genius. Go find section and I always wanted to call out the west, I if probably look anyway, watchman dot for less than there. They'd taught rows so. Yeah. Yeah. We just mess around with different. That kind of what connect- you tend chat on it. And then I ended up. When I was in. I like to his young spending, some David, Tim and rocking on it. You know, I'm very glad. Because to actually, you know, welcoming person just record. It's milwak- dot com. I like it was just going to be coming. Put properly like operated on for a while. And yeah, then people heard it and saw it. And you know, it's the best is just been, you know, the most you mentioned, LARs. Yeah. I mean, I think the message of the song of being selfless and letting someone goes seems to really be resonating with people have have fans been sharing their own personal stories with you after the song came out since it's such like, a, you know, a deep song. Yeah. Probably will these Gabby about it. So to back, and I couldn't all How all. you know that we right? It's kind of quite meadow. They can you know, local courses and stuff, but we saw the name towards. So you probably is little veils like Sony.

"And I really liked that analogy because like, yeah, that's it's we think of it. And they are artists we call the artists. It's that's weird idea because it's such a singular personal artform. But then it's clearly people, you know, the lines are no longer there the collaboration the Cobb colaboration. It's same word enough. And it just seems weird the collaborations that were sort of before the nineties that and this is a tangent. This isn't part of our notes, the ones that I remember as being like big hits were usually kind of unique moments like, you know, Barbara, Streisand and Neil diamond doing you don't bring me flowers which in itself, never meant. It wasn't meant to be duet in the first place. It was a fabricated duet where radio station took to existing solo recordings of the song by Barbara and Neil mash them up it's hard to plane, and then Neil and not be something. I did not know that you didn't did not know that. I'm sure I've said it before on the show. Barbara would Jason co host. Barbara and Neil both had their own celebrations of you. Don't bring me flowers on two separate studio albums Lau. And and they were both in the same like tempo oklahom-, basically. And so a radio station. DJ took them took the two songs splice them together to create a virtual duet and started playing it. And then he started giving out copies of the song to other radio stations. And it became this sort of this weird regional national hit. Then the record label started to notice what was going on. And they're like, okay. Maybe we should just properly record this together. So Neil and Barbara got to the studio and did the song. And then it became a huge number one hot one hundred hit now. But back in the day something like that was of an event Donna summer and Barbra Streisand doing no Martinez enough is enough is a big deal. You know, when you know, it was just unusual, and it would you have to be very unique circumstance for a duet like that to happen between two megastars and now in total forty three out of the year end top. One hundred hot one hundred songs are collaborations. Thanks for bringing it all back there. It's my math survey. There's been at least one collaboration in the year end hot one hundred top ten every year since nineteen ninety four and you may be wondering what was the first collaborative effort to reach the year end top ten on during that would be Frank Sinatra and Nancy Sinatra's father daughter duet of something stupid, which was the number seven song of nineteen sixty seven. Did it Robbie Williams? Do that with Kylie Minogue your girl, Kylie? No, the Nicole Kidman, coal Kidman, Nicole Kidman. Yeah. He he also did to do with Kylie. That was a love song is a great. Well, lastly, we thought we take a look at some of the interesting similarly named titles that charted on the billboard hot one hundred songs chart this year. Okay. So we're thinking like, you know, Z fi fi KiKi tot. He by the way. All those are the four letter song titles. All of them are in all caps, all capital letters, and each of them have kind of a consonant vowel consonant vowel. Yeah. So Z easy. E F F E K E K E T A T. I yes. And then we also have to give an honorable mention to the chorus of Drake's in my feelings where he shot it out key. Yeah. I feel like I also also should mention that your colleagues dander wrote a great article about Kodak blacks as easy being the highest charting Z song ever as the billboard hot. One hunt z z top when you need them. Another was I like it, of course, Cardi B. I love it. I lived it it, I miss, you know, it's like it's almost like a country song there and just four song titles. Like it. I love it. I want some more of it. I like it. I love it. I miss you. And I lived at. Let's not let's not forget no brainer. No excuses. No mistakes. No name, no roots. And no stylist. Of course, what a time to be alive. Key system. Weird weird year. We'll twenty nineteen bring. I dunno..

"Of the differences that you'll see between billboards urine lists and lists that you'll see out the top two dozen nineteen which show. Nielsen music's top songs artists albums of two thousand eighteen because that's actually the sort of the full calendar year 'cause they're being I'll stodgy and following like the actual, you know. Yeah. So if you enjoy it all of those story, if you enjoy all those stories that I that I wrote or kind of edited for our year end charts. Tune in at the top January when you'll see more from me about the Nielsen calendar year, you know, 'cause it just never ends. So following a very male-dominated 2017 where not a single woman ranked the year end top ten overall artists lists for the first time since nineteen eighty four. Four. Yeah. And that was ridiculous. I did research year ago. And I'm like couldn't believe it while it was different this year. Three women are among twenty eight teens top ten we have Taylor swift at number four Cardi B at number five and communiqu bail at number ten front of the podcast commingle tobacco. Yes. Now swift tops the year end billboard two hundred albums chart as well with reputation making her the first act to have the year's top album with three different releases. She previously did it in two thousand fifteen with nine hundred eighty nine and in two thousand nine with fearless. Now Adele has claimed the year end number one billboard two hundred album three times as well. But she did it with two albums. Yes. Twenty-five did it into dozen fifteen and then she did it twice with that album that you may have heard of Twenty-one in both two thousand eleven and two thousand twelve which means like she had the most popular album two years in a row, which is just nuts. Like, I think at the time when I wrote that I think the. Last album to have done it before her was thriller. That puts it in perspective. Yeah. I like that just sort of like, oh, that's how popular album was anytime. You're like dealy other person who's done. It is Michael Jackson. But you know, it's a big, you know, you're in like some weird other universes chart phenomenon and success. Elsewhere in the top ten on the billboard year. End billboard two hundred chart post Malone, actually has two albums in the top ten and that's the first time. An act has doubled up in the top ten on the year end list since two thousand ten and the first time a hip hop act has ever achieved the feat post Malone's two thousand eighteen released beer bonds and Bentley's ranks at number three on our year end list, while his enduring two thousand sixteen sets Stony said set number nine at Stony album just wouldn't go away wild so collaborative singles continued to grow popularity twenty eighteen as a record seven of the top ten year end alward how one hundred songs are team ups led by of course, the unstop.

No. I love it. Will it grows it grows we keep talking to people? And when we say collaborations, we mean songs that were you know, by artists who don't normally record together. So obviously BBN flirts Storch line don't normally record together. And you know, it's just sort of incredible to see, you know, how clever rations are so sort of the norm. It's just that's it's very accepted in very normal. And there was a time when that wasn't the norm. Yeah. Like you. You just I mean, it was I remember when it was like a big deal when like Mariah and boys to men got together for once we day, or when like Madonna and Britney did, you know me against the music, or it was just it was very unusual for collaborations like that to happen used to be an event and now clobber since are so normal. They're just not really events anymore, which I think. Kind of takes away some of the fun of like like what at this point would constitute like an event collaboration. Mike who would it have to be? Yeah. I actually I'm trying to find I'm furiously typing here. I I didn't I was stalling. So I'm like, what are you doing? Yeah. I did the interview with a Lantis Morissette's like when was this?.

"So with the year coming to a close and considering billboard announced its two thousand eighteen year in charts. Recently, we thought it would be fitting to go over some of the notable highlights on our year end charts. So without further ado, the big daddy of all the charts. The big cahuna the the the the chart the champagne Papi of charts. That would not to give things away just gave it away. Our top artists list is sort of the the biggest list of them all and on. Our top artists. Lists Drake is number one. It's probably no surprise to anyone that's paid attention to pop music or music, and general doesn't eighteen. Yes. But Drake rules as Billboard's top artists of the year and scores the year's top billboard hot one hundred saw with God's plan. It's the first time he's been tops on either year end tally. And he's just the third rap act to be the year's top artist. Following fifty cent and Nellie believe it or not like he had three number one hits this year on the how it of dread. Yeah. You may have heard of that album called scorpion. That you might have heard of it. It's just you know, it was it was Drake's here and the rest of us are just sort of living in here. So here's the fine print about our year end charts. Arguing charts are based on chart performance on our charts dated, December second two thousand seventeen through November seventeenth two thousand eighteen that means the charts dated and that actually reflects like the data kind of like almost like a week and a half ish before those chart dates. So it's almost like we're like a November to November. Yeah. Range which is kind of how a lot of urine charts work the urine top artists category. Specifically were Drake is number. One ranks the best performing acts of the year based on active duty on the billboard two hundred chart billboard two hundred chart the billboard two hundred albums chart and the billboard hot one hundred songs chart as well. As streaming social media and billboard box score data. I think we just got a phone call now data registered before or after a titles chart run is not considered in these standings. So you know, if an album came out shortly before the chargers. Began then well that activity doesn't count on our charts because it wasn't on the chart during the charter now that methodology detail and that sort of November November to November kind of period accounts for some.

"Would cash out in nineteen Eighty-six, but Leo's stuck with it until he passed away nineteen Ninety-one working until the day he died and including the day he died. But now let's get back to Fender the company and brand. So you listen to the Gibson episodes. You know there was a period during which Gibson employees were going through a very similar experience. There was this large. Company that comes in acquires them and tries to create a more mass manufacturing approach to what they were doing and that the as a result, some of the employees develop a lot of resentment. And there's a general feeling that the guitar is that were produced in that era were of general just a lower quality than the earlier ones. The explosive popularity of rock and roll in the sixties had led to an unprecedented demand for electric guitars. So companies like Gibson and Fender were making these instruments that were in really high demand. So in some ways, this corporate move might have been necessary just to keep up pace with demand for the products. However, that decrease, in quality kinda balances things out. So those compromises made along the way made a lot of people unhappy both in the company and customers of the company in the nineteen eighties CBS was facing stiff competition from a new rival, not Gibson, but Japanese companies, there were producing electric guitars for a lower cost than. When Fender or Gibson and at first CBS's solution was to shift manufacturing overseas to Korea. But the guitar is that were being produced a those facilities did not measure up to the quality Fender had established in the market. So they ultimately said, well, this isn't going to work. So then they changed the executive leadership at Fender. They got some new leaders for that division. That would include William Schultz who became the president of the division and Dan Smith who became the director for marketing of vendor. John McLaren became the new head of CBS musical instruments. That would be the subsidiary company that would oversee Fender. And that executive team found that fenders reputation was really starting to suffer that musicians were seeking out older models of telecasters Stratocaster instead of new models because they said the build quality was just better than the sound was better in those classic models. And so on close examination, it appeared that they were onto something. Dan Smith would later, say, quote, we were brought in to kind of turn the reputation of Fender around and to get it. So it was making money. Again, it was starting to lose money. And at that point in time everybody hated Fender. We thought we knew how bad it was. We took for granted that they could make Stratocaster Zain telecasters the same way they used to make them, but we were wrong. So many things had changed in the plant and quote. So he's not necessarily saying that the employees were at fault, but that the changes that have been made over the previous decades were such that it was now impossible to make the tars the way they had been made, especially under the policies that CBS had created in one thousand nine hundred eighty two. William Schultz scaled back on guitar production focusing primarily on creating.
