"I think within a three months span. I was working on and not just blowing names out. I was working on. Dylan's springsteen. Elton john billy joel. Kline oh richie and i became a session. Guy session guys. Show up at different studios sessions. Sometimes you do three or four day plan on whatever you make it work and i remember i said you know i'm the band guy. I'm a guy from louisiana. I thought i wanted to do this. Not my soul. I mean i can do it and i love it and thank god i can do it. I'm so blessed. But i said to myself. I need to preserve my love for music somehow. Got to figure this out. Because if i keep going like this session the session. I'm going to start not to love music as much as i do. You're like the maytag man coming in fix the dryer right wood-based you want me. Play this eight over there. You pick it up. Whatever caller whatever so. I hate it and our people before this because i thought they were the blame for the good music and a blamed for the ninety percent of the bad music which just ten percent good still on the radio and ninety percent bad right still the and our guys make these rockets. Siamese people i still don't like an art people and i was one bright so buddy mountains. We're going to columbia's man. You should try and our man you. I'm trying to get more musicians in a game. And i thought to myself. Wow real musicians record producers songwriters doing an arm while this is the way it started back in the day with the great guys that signed all the great stuff because it sounds weird to me but a musician the knows music take writer-producer doing in our no and makes sense to be in the business. Oh no so. I decided to jump in and do it and i realized that these are people still today. People can spot talent sometimes but they don't know how to make it go So you need to be able to have the right phone book to hire the right people to know who to hire to make it go so it's not just going on tiktok or youtube or instagram.

"The following program continued graphic material including offensive language. Discretion is advised. The Nicole Sandler Joe Authority. That could be very reason why. Youtube is upset. Pay You do the music venue here beneath my boys from broadcast sound library that I paid for and Ham the receipts so that you're happy right violation right here and now. Here's Nicole. I'm here hold on. I am here I really am. Hi and welcome to the show on Coal Sandler. We don't usually do a Monday show. But I'm I'm working my way back to it for those of you who've been with me for a long time you might recall that this program will this program used to be three hours daily That's what I was doing. Terrestrial radio and collecting a paycheck. Then when I when I Moved online I cut it back to two hours daily and then what happened was when I moved onto the progressive voices network They were only cowering an hour of the show. So I would do the first hour you know for the people listening to my strain and and for the podcast and then they would join us in progress for the second hour and then I got sick so four years ago Next month I was diagnosed with lung. Cancer maybe it was July June late June July When that happened. And when when I I went on hiatus to have surgery to remove a good portion of my left lung when I finally came back and I rushed back to be on the air before Election Day because it was twenty sixteen when You know the craziest elections of our lifetime when when Donald Trump was running so I thought I can't sit out this entire presidential election so I hurried back probably before I was ready and I decided I'd just come back on the air for the hours that the progressive voices network carried the show because they had big reach. And I've been off the air for months so you know my regular listeners. Who came to my website in my strain to listen. Were likely gone so Progressive Voices runs another show During my time slot on Mondays. I'm not sure if they're gonNA give me back the Monday slot when I moved to five eastern or not. It's still up for discussion. But they run a show called MOMS rising on Mondays in my place and apparently cure kristen Who hosted has it has a pretty big following. I don't know that's still up for grabs but anyway I decided one way or another. I'd probably come back to Mondays. And while we're at home with this pandemic I feel guilty. Not doing a show. I mean it's not like I have stuff to do. I need to pack up my house. 'cause WE'RE GONNA have to move soon I been rebuilding the studio and if you see me today. Part of today was is about testing the new configuration. Because I switched everything around I have three computers now working in my studio and this wonderful new mixing board. That's allowing me to do all kinds of things. I couldn't do before so now I'm hoping this weekend. I switch things around. I try things on different computers. I'm able to pull in video from one to another. It's really kind of cool the things I figured out but bear with me because I used to do the video streaming from my main computer. I moved that off to aside computer. That's only doing the streaming so hopefully nothing else will get hung up and I'll be able to do other things so You know today is kind of More or less trial and error working out in the new configuration. To make sure it works. But you know had also been thinking about if I'm gonNA come back on Mondays. Maybe doing a A music Monday show because you know my background is music. Radio and Sadly I always I always have chosen. The Path most obscure were the music format of radio. I did that I loved was called. AAA which stood for adult album alternative and although I worked in other radio network in almost every format it was AAA. That was my love station in Los Angeles. Kabc A that. I was I I was a disc jockey then. I became music director. I booked what we call the music hall which was artists coming in to perform live for us and that was it was my dream job. We got to break new music. We got to introduce The public to artists that didn't traditionally get airplay. We would play album tracks instead of just this single. We would You know and the station was on the air from ninety four to ninety seven and we broke bans from Dave Matthews to Sheryl Crowe to Oh God the list goes on and on counting crows to Tons of of artist throughout the nineties. got their start in AAA radio and they're still a small number of these stations. Most of them are noncommercial. Stations like w x pin in the Philadelphia area or of course. Now I'm drawing a blank K. K. K. K. C. N. N. now on the air in Los Angeles anyway so You know So I'm always thinking I've got tons of interviews and music performances that I did on the air in Los Angeles that I've been fig trying to figure out how to repackage and share and I share them on the blog occasionally and you know Matt Nay Nay was actually Kahlo. Os Osama number five. You're you're you're really reaching back there for me but anyway So to make a long story not quite so long and cumbersome I I was contacted a month or two ago by Ah publicized publicist or manager but Somebody who I guess remembers my Old Music Days and he mentioned to me that one of the artists he works with a guy named Michael. Mcdermott was getting ready to release a new album. Well I remember Michael Mcdermott and sure enough. I I knew we played him K. Sea never had a big hit but really good singer songwriter. In the Dylan's springsteen John hiatt vein perhaps And so I You know the he sent me an advance of the new album and it's really good and this new single is just just what we need. Because I be Mon. The fact all the time that we don't have much in the way of protests music these days occasionally orders like Bob. Dylan's got a new one out. That's that's very Appointed pointedly against a trump Who else the the the? Dixie chicks recently released a song that has political overtones are undertones But this new single for Michael Mc Dermott is just as so good. It's called what in the world and The video for it is spot on so Michael McDermott's actually gonNA join us for the second half of the show today. We're going to do a special Monday. Music Show Will Premiere that video which is also good and he'll be with us over zoom and You know he'll perform song or two and we'll chat and you know we'll we'll we'll play it by ear Hopefully you had a chance to hear Friday show. Oh my goodness so knoll. Casler was my guest. And he's the guy who worked as a talent wrangler basically on celebrity apprentice on the finale of separate celebrity apprentice for six years. I think he said and I I heard him about a year. And a half ago when he emerged. Ooh sorry. I didn't mean to boost that when he emerged as a A stand up comedian and what he told us on Friday was astounding to me. The reason he became a comedian is to tell his story. It was a way to get out in public and explain what he knew of Donald Trump. And He's been telling his story but he's been doing it through standup comedy through an occasional radio interview. I know he John Melendez I keep wanting to say Menendez. But he's not one of the Menendez brothers. Those are the ones who killed their parents John Melendez Most people know as stuttering John who used to be on the Howard Stern show and then he wanted to be an announcer for the tonight show with Jay Leno and these days I guess he. He does a podcast. He's been on this program a few times. We go back many years Anyway he apparently no. Casler is a regular on stuttering John's podcast. But I just for some reason. I never reached out to him until last week. I don't know why then last week I thought you know. We're about due for a good dump on dump session and so I invited him on the show Friday and if you have not heard it you need to go back and listen. We we Excerpted police did. I gotTA thank Paul. I was planning on editing out the segment with knoll over the weekend and pushing it out on its own. So you don't have to listen through the The whole first half of the show which is when I do this. I- I- waxed philosophical. I you know deliver the news. I rant. From time to time. And then it's the second half of the show when I have a guest so a hint for those you who come looking for the guest Q. Win About thirty minutes and you'll get past this stuff and get right to the heart of the thing so like Michael. Dermott will join us at the bottom of the hour. Anyway I just had to say again. What an awesome interview that was and how much respect I have for no casler. He I worry for him and I said during the interview and I've noticed in the comments on Youtube everywhere where the where the show was posted. People are saying things like stay away from windows. Please be careful if it surprises me. That he's not been contacted by a trump attorney yet trying to invoke NDA the nondisclosure agreement. But what I'm thinking is something that we talked about. Which was you know? He's being interviewed by me. He's interviewed by stuttering John. I Guess Stephanie Miller had him on one of her shows And but why isn't he being questioned by anyone in the mainstream corporate media? This is a man who worked for Donald Trump personally worked for Ivanka as her personal person for three years. Obviously he knows things and no-one no-one from the corporate mainstream media has interviewed him. I find that to be a dereliction of duty. Frankly so anyway I you know. I've got a standing invitation for Knoll. Casler to come back anytime I I'm really impressed with him in the fact that you know he's not he's not afraid he's he's saying this is information that people need to hear and he's fearless so good for him and here. We are so all right. What do we do now? I oh I WANNA play you comedy. Song right because there's because we like to do that at the beginning of the show and there's a bunch that came out this weekend now you know. I started on this by being so enamored of Randy rainbow right his videos. I've been loving for a few years. Now he always makes me laugh not always an easy thing to do especially in times like these. But there's another group out there who is fighting for the basically fighting for the the attention that Randy Rainbow God. They are given him a run for his money. They're called founders. Sing and you know. We discovered them a few months ago. The first song they did the for Song Parody was a great rendition of American Pie. The song by Don McLean and but the reason the group has called founders sing. They used like that deep fake technology. I think that's what it called. Where where they can. They can manipulate a graphic of someone space and make it appear that they're talking or singing it looks real and so that version of American Pie I think they called it the day. Democracy died They had all the founding fathers singing the different lyrics. It was pretty epic well now founder. Sing remained the the name of their group. But it's not the founders doing the singing on each subsequent song it's different characters and so the one. They released today just about two hours ago. I happened to stumble upon it probably moments after they put it out features many of those female journalists that Donald Trump has such a problem with from Michel Singapore from the PBS Newshour Katie tour of NBC to which Jiang of CBS. You get the idea. So that's who's calling today Suzanne in the chatrooms saying it's called. Cgi But this is deeper than CGI IS NOTCH CGI computer generated images that deep faked technology. Remember a few years ago somebody released a video of Barack Obama speaking and it was What's his name Key and Peele one of those guys who was doing the voice and it wasn't real. It's it's more realistic than CGI. But again I'm not the technical person so I forgive my lack of the proper terminology anyway. here's their latest. It's called like a kidney stone. And with more than more than a simple nod to Bob Dylan alright get ready strap in and again for those who are just listening to the audio stream. I will post the video on my blog after the show today at Nicole Sandler Dot com slash five Dash Eighteen desk twenty because today's date is may eighteenth twenty twenty. Get the.

"As close to a rival for American band to the Beatles as possible Brian Wilson Influence. Paul McCartney Who Paul McCartney influence. Brian Wilson They also went from being. You know happy surf. Music to onto pet sounds and other albums that did not have the commercial success but still some great music They are they sold southern California as a place where there's two girls for every boy and that You know the the though Janet Dean Sang that Song. Brian wrote it They were just icons and When you hear other musicians talk about Brian Wilson And with his brothers and friend and cousin being that instruments of his genius You realize how far his influence that the branches from that Brian Wilson Tree continue similar. Like you said about Bruce when you hear about the people so I'm GonNa go beach. Boys stotts. Dr Scott Well. Four honorable mentions and they were one of the honorable. Mentions so I I can't argue with with with what you said. I think they're kind of fun. Surf music the fact that you know the toward for so many years with like different people including John Stamos. I think it's kind of her brand over the years I would've loved. I mean Brian. Wilson is a musical hero of mine. and You know I. I think if they had a second leg of their career like the Beatles did after all the you know overcome gum. Poppy stuff and had you know maybe three or four or five Pet sounding type albums that kind of really resonated with mainstream culture. I think they would definitely be Probably probably make for me And I think that's a I mean you're you're not gonNA you're not GonNa get an and and you're not gonNA get argument not only because we're polite and and love each other but I think that's fair. I think that's a fair assessment of of why if you were debating Let's say there. Were you know we were committee of Seven or eight experts If if someone made that argument back and forth I would as much as I love them. I would be willing to okay. I'm going to move forward with them. Not Making because you can only have four. So yeah that's really well done What's next for you okay? So this is the fourth one. So this is as I said earlier in the podcast from Cleveland till now So this is the only one that team in frears gave us one while foot and number four is pink floyd very concerned by British invasion. Ask You could say like I think you have you colleges making. Have you always hated America? Dr? I Hate American I had I look. I I thought about two and rem and you know Yeah it's You know what they are Number nine all time albums sold My to me Dark side is the in my people. The best album ever made I think The wall is genius. I mean you know the drill album album. But they're just this iconic life force and you know they. They let their You know personal differences really get didn't the way What could have been a much longer torn careers? They broke up during before the division bell tour Which Roger Waters is not even On the album or tour but You know they of literally I mean I don't know the number I mean but like I mean we're talking like like five hundred million or something like some crazy number that they've been asked like oh thousands of times To get back together and tour and You know it's interesting 'cause I I was really debating between them and I'll tell you who else after that you're forced election but You know what I what I thought was interesting was when I went on kind of want to see just from like any kind of popularity standpoint. They still relevant in the whole thing. And I found this thing where like Spotify like rank like their top twenty like streaming bands like of all time and Ford. Was I think like in like the top ten to fifteen still You know you still see people with the dark side shirts every day. I mean I just I can't say enough about the think they have one of the most unique sense. I mean nobody sounds like Which I think is also a big criterium also For why I decided to go with the number four. I mean nobody like they almost created their own genre of music. I can't argue with that. They are not someone that That speaks to me but I certainly can order that so debated on my fourth. Dr Scott and I wanted to do something that represented motown because of the huge influence. It had on radio and music in the sixties. So I ended up picking the temptations though I also thought about Diana Ross and the supremes And so the temptations ended up being my pick For and kind of representing Motown And and I know that's kind of I think that's a little bit of a stretch and as I said if we were in a committee I would probably would lean toward if someone said. Well no I really think it should be Zeppelin or pink floyd. I certainly could not argue that point. I would make my stand and then move forward. But since it's mine I went temptations. Well I mean look they have a very successful show on Broadway right now. So it's not like you picked secure bands. Yes all right You're you've just my dad. Very nice but that was my temptation your exactly literally you I mean. Look you it sounds like you. You want us to kind of topped your sound. That was so influential on to popular music. And you know. I can't argue if With temptation there Sometimes admittedly str- admittedly struggle with What the temptation song. And what's the four tops song and smoke house and in the miracles right like miracle? Yes yeah I mean I mean you know like but temps were probably the best at what they what they want for that John Laura Just like you know When we're talking about it's like you know someone could say. Bob Marley someone like that. I mean right. It's like you know if you're looking at different like Zahn Ras If we're doing country right you could do a johnny cash. Could even some might even say for gas. You know So I don't I you know you're not gonNA get a lot of pushback for me because you know to you know to me you know. It's it's interesting with my wife when I talk about this a lot when we're listening to music And we'll talk about like. Is this person. Does this person like Homs lie or be this band or do they have like their own sound Or they you know. Very derivative and And you know that whole like genre of music You know again in the Broadway show now is getting like you know. It's very hard to get tickets to and Huge ovations and So I mean you know. They were I it's IT'S A it's a very it's a very interesting selection but I think your argument for why they're while you put them was very solid very nice guy. That was fun. All right I- listeners. I know we've been long but we did want to take a few minutes We've got multiple people that have reached out to give their discussions. I don't unless in. Here's what I figure we'll do Dr Scott will will read them and unless something just stands out like Oh. I think that's a really well. Thought of discussion. Obviously we're not going to be you know if we're not going to be disparaging if someone picked the monkeys which no one did thank God. I'm just checking Though I certainly I certainly a fan of Peter Tork and Michael Nasmyth and Davy Jones and why am I drawing a blank on the last Guy But you would not put them on that list but we are not we know this is all about positively So I'll start with about positive on so I just want a quick introduction or I'll As the college I will I'm GONNA HAVE OCD. If I just don't say this I just have to. Just give the The just the four five honorable mentions you no because I really. I've never 'cause I really really struggled with the fourth one and Originally I had the WHO at number four on about them So I had the honour mentions or the WHO? The Eagles are only finally. I'm sorry. Go the Eagles fleetwood Mac. The doors and the visuals so I especially think the eagles and fleetwood Mac are the icons of the seventies I think were and and I do think their influence as eagles especially in modern country music I think is all over the place and I think to a certain degree you know I agree rock and roll so yes. All Great Honorable Mentions Okay So Mary Great Discussion. I knew it would be wonderful idea all right so as I said. We reached out to twitter and facebook asked for people to send their information. They did not have the criteria we just. I just asked for individual artists for groups. What would you think? So Marian Tin from twitter said Elvis Chuck Berry Bob Dylan springsteen or Bowie. David Bowie I think is certainly someone that is worthy of discussion. And then like when people do the when people do the or I'm Gonna I'm GonNA teach kids speak with the rebound food and then groups. They said the Beatles Stones Birds Rem. I think that's really interesting. 'cause THE BIRDS. I think an early influence or and rem you mentioned on someone. That certainly was some influences birds I love the sound of the birds. mostly Just cover songs but You know they're great at the greatest. Hits album is is is great Very random choice but Maryanne thank you. You've got one From twitter motion Newman An artist that Apparently Jussie doesn't like his name is Bruce Springsteen he's from New Jersey Elvis Presley John who was an honorable mention and Chuck Berry. Can't argue with any of those groups we have the Eagles Fleetwood. Mac each three bands so double dipping their. Yes and the Beatles. Yeah that's I thought about the eastern band because they're such an iconic band but I think it's similar to you like when you say Tom. Petty and the heartbreakers RESP- Racing East. You Ban you kind of think of those together so great choices Chris Bloom who is going to be on the PODCAST. Coming up. Pretty soon Returning he said Elvis Bob Dylan Bruce Springsteen Jimi Hendrix which I think Hendrix is a very nice choice that You and I. I don't think either one of US brought up Now I did have them on my honorable mention to me he's like the Arguments sports reference the the the Sandy Colfax of musician In terms of you know when people think of Colfax you know when the greatest pitchers in the history of baseball only had six great years got a twelve year career. Sixth Grade Years. And you know obviously part of the Infamous twenty seven club and died way too soon but I mean talk about His influence and his his his iconic status though I I loved Jimmy. Yeah and I think that's really good choice. I also I think back of your point that all along the watch tire right is is that's a Hendrix Song. Even though Dylan wrote it so very nice His groups he said REM second for. Im Pink Floyd U2 and the doors so a couple of year honorable mentions I gave a lot of thought to Youtube. Youtube is a pretty influential band and And there's a Lotta love between you. Two and the e street band so bruce and Bongo so that those are all good choices and probably when we look at from eighties on You know maybe Kroll Jam probably with that group Probably the you know already on Youtube Program Nirvana not enough body of work But those those would be probably the the the the biggest in terms of popularity And Body of work Those three bands would probably be from from the eighty five. You know what would be an interesting discussion and we may put this on. The future is pick a rushmore for the decades in. Like what would be your top four bands of the sixties. What would be the for the seventies the eighties with ninety s? You know that because then you could have that a little more diversity in the influence. Still a lot of choices the discussion You've got another one for me. We got him. Arnold thank you tim for Chiming in Kim is GonNa get some negative points here for cheating in multiple spots him your call to the principal so fit him. What would chuck Berry Springsteen.

"Storage. I you know I can get emotional but you already but can and I think that's the beauty of this <hes> I could have picked and we'll go to our last song shortly but I you know I I could have picked like I almost picked Sam Cooke to change is GonNa come because that's one of my favorite songs and and I had other songs that I could have picked that I just adored and I of course to make it a little different. I wanted to share as I said. This is my musical autobiography biography based on songs that kind of tell about myself. I I love what you're done with it. That's all right so your final song so Mo- funny not the final song ever absolutely in a couple of years. We'll do a follow up. Okay so <hes> well I guess before before I say the the final not and I referred to this area about you know and you also said it just we've got we've got access to so much music these days but one of the things that noise May and I have to say a tends to be males and it tends to be males of all sorts of vintage I am you use the phrase beverage before they'll typically have a beverage in the hand and they will lend tell you that there's actually being no decent music made since one thousand nine hundred to really annoys me because I actually passionately believed that the as but chick mortgage museum ran now than ever you know I can tell you the rubber plants spend the night. Some people will say this Harris played for better than the two times I still Zeppelin so that that is an annoyance for me and what I wanted to do in sort the last choice and again that was looked options you mentioned Jason is bell before and now I think he's one of the greatest songwriters to come at the last few his stunning is Nashville this past album just amazing <hes> so who am vampires almost made my list but the song of chosen he's he's actually read is by war on drugs. <hes> on the reason is that it's for me to Song An. It's a band who they have already distinctive sound. I think it absolutely sands now but there's also in a good way. There's an awful lot less fifty years of music in there <hes> so if they felt like <hes> felt like a good good way of to use a springsteen it felt summation in felt like it pulled things together and is a piece of software called Rune to manage Oh my music play stuff and they have an I loved this quite which was summoning summoning summoning up the patron saints of F._M.. Radio rock the band is an update to the wild eyed sermons of Dylan springsteen and the summit abandoned. Tom Petty perfected all filtered through wolves of India tall noise an egg depravity all of their own. I just think Aspirin Ryan so I think a bit like were drugs music. You know flowery flamboyant a bit pretentious the big ambitious ambitious creative music. I'm always going to be for that say war on drugs all right here we go mm-hmm here. uh-huh <music> all right that is awesome so the question is is he going to go through a whole list without picking springsteen song and the answer is no okay now this one I cheated a little bit technically land of hoping dreams was released in the late nineties during the tour the reunion tour however it's official release was on wrecking ball. It was indeed which was twenty you know which was in the twenty twelve I have said very many times that my favorite Bruce springsteen songs <hes> are better days and land of open dreams and then the third one changes every day and I gave a lot of thought to nineties being <hes> better days but <hes> there's just something about the song it makes my heart sore. Every time I start hearing that sound there are things that go on with your life and by the way I played this on that trip back to college with Chris Jackson <hes> I will provide for you and I'll stand by your side. You'll need a good companion for this part of the ride. Leave behind your sorrows. Let This Day be the last tomorrow they'll be sunshine and all the starkness passed. I just think that today in every day you know the idea of let's shoot for a better future. Let's put aside the our past than our sorrows <hes> so I had to end with that one because Levin mercy one land of Hope Dreams if I had a manifesto Ooh what I wanted my life to be that trilogy would at least be what I'm trying to shoot for the yeah yeah <music> all right there we go to old guys schering their life and you know fourteen songs <hes> I did not make any plans but I thought ask you is there. I did you have any close that you thought about that. You hated hated to not pick. Oh I mean the agonizing over <hes> over the song selection as being as being awful but I think that's that's that's part of the process and if I look at how many revisions divisions of gun since I kick myself but I now know 'cause we committed say tape but whatever whatever digital media <hes> and I feel if you take aways in the ninety s that was a late edition <hes> and I feel really good about that because I think it really does. Some you know that decade for me <hes> I actually had one of the guys that came in a couple of weeks this guy he chose Romblon as sixty some by Zeppelin and I look human oh city boy. It's obviously the seventies and then went checked realized he was right so I had to change that selection but now I I mean my my my comment would be this is I am not gonNA pretend that this was in my head when came up with the format but you've just proven in this in this hour. It's a great way to have a dialogue with people and to find things and I mean the one story I would like to finish with a friend of Mine Chris <hes> he was actually the last person to come round and do this and is eighties. Choice was the pixies and we started talking about. How did you find music and he grew up in Minnesota? He grew up in a fall aw he was in the middle of nowhere. He didn't have access to music in the only two things he had would. He could get a subscription to rolling stone magazine on his died. As my dad did had a subscription to the Columbia record club and what Chris used used to do is a fifteen year old was look at the college gigs and charts and if any of the names in there were available on Columbia he persuaded that to buy him the out never having heard and by the way he then says that that's how I found the pixies R._E._M.. The Smiths and <hes> and I just thought that was brilliant story about sort of music and what people do and and nice to find that but people because you know.

"On a regular basis. He travels all over the place in usually in the name of, of good food, and good drink. And he's been everywhere in here. We are connecting with him again. Now, we are over. I think our Dublin Ireland, right? Dave hammond. Welcome to WGN. Hey, Dan, yes, I am in Dublin today exceptional an exceptional vogue. And this is really great, it feels really close. Right. Remember when you and I talked with Dr Watson Egypt and it was kind of scratchy from so far. But so here you are in the middle of in the middle of island. You know, a country that has for the dairy such a great connection. Greek community here. So you've been there a couple days, what are your is this the first time that you've been there? It is the first time I have been here, all the other UK countries. But this the first time I've ever been an Eyler Ireland. I'm really glad to be here to his DNA testing indicates that I have a larger percentage of Irish blood in me. Italian, I've always identified with the Italian side of the family. But it turns out. Statistic, not that long ago that this like a huge number of people in the United States identify as Irish particularly Saint Patrick's Day, of course. But they feel there's a we there's a real close association between the people of the United States, and the people of Ireland, you can see it in our folk music. I mean, a lot of the, you know, bluegrass music, and so on drew on folk songs that I refer roots. So there's a cultural connection. But also, I think there's a certain sympathy that people of the United States have for folks at Ireland in part because we both fought the British and are maybe still fighting the in some ways. So we have we have that fellow feeling that connection with with Irish people that we may not have with some other countries necessarily. Well, maybe, maybe you're getting a little bit of that five being over there that the kind of animosity or some friction with the no, I shouldn't. I did not detect any anti British feeling. Ireland nor in our own country. I'm talking about historically. There's been a battle against the imperial force of England. You know we had a revolution here. And of course, they had years of fighting and fighting continues in Northern Ireland where they have the troubles, which is friction between what they see is British occupiers and the native the native people. Continues there. We resolved our problems along time ago. You have a culture that has is a big part is certainly has a big festive side to it. You something right? When you have an entire line of, of well-worn t-shirts, kiss me. I- mirus. Right. You. This Lavi and you just don't see as many. Is part of our connection with with Ireland is, is one. You mentioned so many people identify with, and you mentioned somebody will have kind of that lineage, based in it, as well as it's kinda the quintessential American story. One of those big waves of, of immigrants, you know with with the Irish coming in and assimilating and being such a big part of everything that goes on. I think that's part of the reason why you know, just as you mentioned, you know, with England as well, but that there's just such a I think, I think it affects. Right. I think there's a great relationship. I think there's an affinity, I think, at least I feel like because, you know, we feel very warm towards everything all things Irish here beyond just what happens in around Saint Patrick's Day, but you get that, while you're there, that, that they're that they're like Americans that were you know, we're all on the point. I think so I think there's impact, I've noticed that in many countries, I've gone to, and they tend to people in other lands tend to make a distinction between American citizens American government, and they're mature enough, those people, I've met to see that there's a difference between the two. They may not always agree with our government's policies generally, like Americans and one reason for that. I think is American music and entertainment because. America has the some industries that we've excelled in, our, we may may see as falling behind, but entertainment, American entertainment, I think reigns supreme example, walking around Dublin. First day, I'm here. I see people wearing a Bruce Springsteen t shirts. Marilyn Manson t shirts, it's their list, a set from you to what kind of Irish musicians t-shirts shirts have if you've seen in this in our country in America, which brings me to the side for interesting visit I made yesterday. We went to Slane castle and though the producers of slain whiskey. In fact, the reason I'm on this trip is to visit different two stories in Ireland, Irish whiskey is really coming on heavy right now, kind of fun fact. In the last century, there were like was like eighteen eighty one hundred Irish distillers people making spirits in nineteen eighty two Irish distilleries precipitous fall, and now, they're like twenty five with two more scheduled to open up this year and projections are, that Irish whiskey could actually exceed sales of scotch in the United States, by the middle twenty twenty-five, something like that, which is, which is pretty amazing had meteoric growth in the last decade or so. What are you tribute that too, because you look at here in Chicago, as far as the craft distilleries and just the ability to go ahead and do that. And just how can be received any just don't have to be a big giant manufacturer anymore to find whether it's an audience or a fan based, or get your product out there is it just that they may be hadn't had the, the marketing for it or maybe hadn't had, you know, maybe I think maybe one because they're so identified with Guinness. Right. And so you have that it's certainly a culture for, for festivity and imbibing and all that kind of stuff, I'm surprised that. It's, it's taken this long. Well, it's a. A lot of people that one, one factor is quite definitely. It's it, it hasn't had the marketing muscle behind it. That say scotch has head has bourbon is, is a beautiful example of another beverage that fell out of favor in the seventies and eighties. And so on, and now is big can hardly build bourbon distilleries fast enough to keep pace with, with the buddy of mine. Chuck Cowdery who wrote a book is a couple of books bourbon said that he thought this is kind of the women's movement. Save bourbon, he has said and what he means by that is that with, with the increasing independence and voice, that women have in American politics and culture, and they should always have had it, of course, did in a in a kind of background way. But because the women are demanding and receiving respect equal pay equal to that received by men that also drinking some, the spirits that used to be. A guy thing in bourbon used to be something, the men would drink in the women would have, you know, Chardonnay or something like that. But now women account for huge proportion of the bourbon drinking population in the United States. So. irish whiskey coming back it's it's interesting to me just as another side note the very word whiskey is gaelic comes from a gaelic word an old irish word is like this or something like that which and wisco- that whiskey that that sound within a plight to the whole class of beverages called whisky so they need marketing muscle behind him also i think just as there's an increasing interest with mexican spirits like moscow princeton's i think there's an increasing interest in the united states and elsewhere in spirits that have been big in their homeland but have have either fallen out a favor or were never really a mess call never really that much in favor in this part of in the united states in that part of north america so i think fans of of spirits and this is one thing that i think has changed maybe the perception the last twenty years or so where you thought hey you know people would find a situation where it's not broke don't fix it you know if you're a bud man or whatever whether it's on the beers and now it seems like on the craft beer side people can't get enough of every single kind and wanna try every single kind and the variety is the spice a life i think you're seeing that on the spirit side to where there's room for for everybody to go ahead if you're making some good stuff you can find an audience find a fan base that i think if you're in a place like ireland you mentioned that history with so much going on in the past you just tap into some of that lineage and and i think you've you've got products that you can do here's the other side of it to you mentioned you know on the maybe women are getting more into some of these different spirits maybe finding ways to enjoy any brand ambassador worth their salt is going to have way that we can enjoy something needs or find some great cocktails and be approachable for anybody but you're seeing some of these other countries like china now with fifteen percent of the g._d._p. where they're buying up a lot of these things that were seen as kind of indulgences they're getting in on with the bourbons and and i think that's one of the markets to where you can you can get into the american market Then also too. There's other places on tap as well. Definitely, just as the Chinese are interested in, in Bordeaux in French cheese. a wine in french teeth they're becoming more interested in american spirits and hopefully irish spirits although people i've spoken to here say that there's been very little market penetration in china so far but that's of course a gigantic market and i think it's just a matter of time before we break in there so we say we went to slain yesterday this this old estate we talked to this this young man who's the ninth is kind of like a older hippy guy now but he's the ninth earl of cunningham at the state and his dad who was the marquis i guess my my my sense of royal hierarchy and britain is the united kingdom is a little bit but his dad was a marcus he's an earl and the rock and roll enthusiasts so on this property slane castle they have i don't know what it is at something like a hundred acre field that they regularly host rock band for instance we were there a few days after metallica performed there Group, but performed in this field include, like David Bowie Dylan Springsteen Queen. I mean, there's been amazing X that have been brought to this castle, which is not in Dublin. It's like thirty five forty five minutes outside of Dublin U2. in fact, if you remember the song pride, which was unforgettable fire, U2.'s album. They recorded that if you've seen the video they recorded it in the ballroom at Slane castle, and they're one of the first bands to be book there. So this is this is kind of a cool place. Yesterday, talking to Alec the ninth Earl of Cunningham and he. Telling this, this is your take this with a great assault. I thought it was hilarious. He said they were thinking of putting into the needed to dig for water because you need a lot of water when you're making whisky you needed, not only to put in whiskey, because you don't usually so whiskey at cask strength. That is the, the proof that comes out of the barrels, because it's way, way to idea to tone it down a little bit more, like eighty five proof, something like that. So you need water for that. You also need water for cooling, the fermentation tanks and all kinds of stuff. So you need water when you have a distillery. So he hired these science guys to come in and hydrologist. I guess you'd call them to look for springs, and he couldn't find spring couldn't find springs and he said he spent like six thousand dollars. A pop heaven. These guys come in wasn't doing any good. So in the local community, he found a diviner these I wanted to talk about this diviner situation, and it's going to be a great story. So what we do have to get to a break on a typical. Quick break. Come talk about the ancient art of divining how the, the ninth Earl of Cunningham. This is pretty great sustained do for that day. Whole tight will be right negotiating with fairies negotiating with.

That's going to be performing at the ninth annual warns Yvonne birthday bash Thursday, January twenty third at space in Evanston. We have a link for more information on our Facebook page, and Chris and Charlie welcome back guys. That is a great song. Obviously one of many many great songs at orange, Yvonne. Wrote. And we always talk about this every time you guys come down. The fact that he's never been nominated to be in the rock and Roll Hall of fame. The fact he's not in the rock and Roll Hall of fame is a massive misjustice toll. And the fact that he hasn't even been nominated off guys influence just about everybody. Yeah. And there's we were talking about an I drive over here. There's a reason he hung out with hunter S Thompson. Yeah. Yeah. You gotta rock musician. The hangs out with the Harris Thompson, it's probably pretty good. Yeah. Yeah. And I just want to remind everybody. Bon jovi's in rock and Roll Hall of fame warns Yvonne's never been nominated def Leppard is in the rock and Roll Hall of fame warns Yvonne has never been nominated. How old would warranties on business the eight sixty eight. Yeah. Yeah. He died in two thousand three four three or four three. I think it was September two thousand two thousand three because I remember he was diagnosed and he lived longer than they they said he was every diagnosis. I think he lived over a little over here about a year. And he, but when he when I remember when they when they when he got diagnosed with cancer, he said, look all I wanna do is make it to the new bond movie 'cause he was he was a huge fan. The world is not enough was the bond movie and they ended up screening it for him. It would have been die another day because day the rose not enough as ninety nine. Okay. Well, wow. Yeah. James BOND fan. Maybe. Okay. So die. Another day is the one with Halle Berry with Halle Berry. Did Madonna do the song? Okay. That's that's the one. I get my Pierce Brosnan movies all mixed. She's and she's well because Pierce Brosnan is in a different movie. He's great. Yeah. And those movies are terrible. Yeah. Like, he's he's in a great JAMES BOND movie. I don't know. I'd love to see those you don't like GoldenEye golden is pretty good tomorrow. Never dies. Pretty good. Great. Well. Yeah. The world is not enough has got some great stuff in it. But it's super it's because it was it was directed by the guy who did the seven up movies. And then the action sequences are directed by somebody else. Yeah. And so it's this great like emotional thing. And then these super crazy Michael habitat directed there. Yeah. Wow. Yeah. I don't even remember, I really don't even remember. Yeah. It's got sofi. Marceau and. Robert Carlyle is the bad guy. Carlisle's the bad guy, which which one is the one where Jonathan is the bad guy. That's tomorrow. Never dies. Upper he's he's selling. He's starting a war to get the cable rights to China for a hundred years. Good reason. I don't even remember see. I'm not the biggest bond guy in the world. You know, I thought. Casino. Royale was phenomenal. And I wasn't crazy. I know everybody loved. For sky fall. Yeah. Everybody loved that. One. Albert Albert Finney's in that one right? Running around with a gun. Is that sky fall? Or is that? Now. Yeah. Now because all of the all the action sequences in the in the crag movies are great and actually quantum of solace. If you sort of watch it as like a bunch of extra scenes from casino royale. It's awesome. Yeah. But it's not really a good. It's not a good stand alone movie. There's a great that opens with a great car sequence. Anyway, it's yeah, I'm a huge colbrad. Clearly, I this is something I did not know about you. Yeah. Favorite bond movie? Probably I'm supposed to say on Her Majesty's secret service. But I'm gonna I'm gonna which is a great. I imagine secret service is a great great film. It's a great diamonds are forever. That's the first one. I saw in the theater. It's it's it's so it's just everything that's right about bond. They Connery is just funny enough angry. He's old he's five years younger than. I think four or five years younger than Roger Moore was at the time and looks like he's like twenty. Yeah. That's true. I mean, it's just great. It's just all the way through it's funny because you know. The bond that during my formative years was Roger Moore was the bond. I grew up on the first bond movie I ever saw in the theater was diamonds are forever. That was his last. Well, Connery his last right bond movie until he did never say never again official. Right. But I remember seeing it in the movie theater, and I was really young when he came out probably five or six when again, but Roger Moore was like my teenage years more, and in retrospect, Roger Moore is not very good now in the bond movies. And he's well, I think there's some good again because all of those things kind of mashed together, and he made a lot of movies, really quick. Yeah. So I I enjoy looking back on it. I enjoy Roger Moore now more, and I like a lot of those sequences and a lot of the stuff from Roger Moore's from the books. So the the plots aren't the same. But all the action sequences are pulled. Yeah. Okay. So if you look at how I dunno. I forget which one it is. But there's a whole there's a whole movie where like everything. Has from directly from the books, and they were doing that a lot in those more years all action sequences are the really well. Composed. Yeah. You know, but he's faithful faithful he he's the Saint. That's why he got the gig. Right. So anyway, I did not know you were an expert on the JAMES BOND movies. Yeah. Well, neither did I know that. We'll bring it up next Wednesday. Seve on seven. Yeah. So here's the deal. So he wanted to in. So they screened it for him. And he was disappointed. Yes. In it. But and so another another aspect of Warren's, Yvonne. We have to talk about is. How much David Letterman loved him and the relationship that he had with David Letterman. Yeah. And that last appearance. That's Yvonne made on Letterman before he passed away is just fantastic and very touching. Yeah. And he was he like Paul Shaffer would anytime Paul Shaffer was a way in which wasn't very often. Would he always said and said to Letterman on his last appearance on your your best friend my music ever had? And I mean, I think that with with certain musicians definitely was Yvonne and even to a certain extent Tom waits like their guys like certain other. Talk show hosts our networks wouldn't wanna touch. Yeah. Let him was like that's the guy. Yeah. I want him on my show. It was always. And it was great because I've been I was as Yvonne fan for, you know, for years, and I love the fact that Letterman embrace warns Yvonne because you didn't see warns Yvonne anywhere right now, really easy. Didn't you have a lot of exposure on television? At all agreed and didn't get a lot of have a ton of radio play either. You know, I think people might know some of the songs that he's written that other people have recorded true like poor poor pitiful me, Linda, Ronstadt hit. Yeah. And he was down the wind as now the windy xactly. And so, you know, it's interesting that that people might have known some of his songs had no idea who he was or could he was always kind of on the fringe. We talked about we talk about this every year when you guys come in. What was your first? The first exposure warns Yvonne for it was saying, my my oldest brother's record collection and seeing the record. Excitable boy. And I'm like who is this weird looking dude. This is a weird. Look is there a gun on a plate on the back. And then I listened to it. Was ten years old. This is kind of scary. But kind of cool. Yeah. Yeah. So so what about you probably probably here in like where wolves on the radio? Yeah, I used to play game where I would try to guess who the when I was a kid, and I didn't have access to all the wreckage. Listen, the classic rock radio guests who was a singer visit song, I didn't know. And who did you guess was the singer was we're warns Yvonne. Oh, and now I mean 'cause he's so distinctive. I remember hearing lawyers guns and money the first time, that's the that's the very distinctive vocal style. No question about it. A question about the as we always mention. Incredible songwriter, and with a wicked sense of humor like his songs are there. Some really funny stuff in his sizeable. Boy is a hilarious song and Roland the headless Thompson gunner the payoff at the end like the final line is so hilarious. I was I heard where we'll London, and I thought it was great and got and got excitable boy. And then became obsessed with with it and with him and went back and got the first record. And then stayed obsessed with Warren's Yvonne all the way up until his death. And and. I just think, you know, one of the one of the best one of the best songwriters of all time where he makes his music with lyric is just it's really pretty. Like, I said he's up there with Bob Dylan Springsteen and Tom waits. They just don't make them like that. No question about it. No question about it. I love the fact that you guys celebrate his birthday every year. I went to the first couple. And at the now, defunct quenchers. Yes. All quenchers with all their beer like nine hundred different beers quenchers. And now it's gonna be a doctor's office is that well, that's appropriate. Yeah. Last time. I was here. I needed it. I had the the what what somebody told me the best phone interview. I just told Chris this story the best phone interview. I've ever had the day after that first is Yvonne show. So we were all hanging out and and drink, Dan and having a good time. And sometimes when I'm singing and playing you can't tell like, I've had a little too much you wake up I wake up with a hangover, and we're like, but I wasn't drunk that that morning I woke up with a righteous hangover, and I had this phone interview. And I sat in a Einstein brothers bagels with my hand in my ear, and I ended up not getting the job. And I knew the guy who I was interviewing and he's like, no, no, no. He was like he's like going into that going into the in person interviews, you're the top candidate. And in fact, that was the best phone interview I've ever had with anybody in in in my life, and you were hung over after I was I was hung over that night the next morning after that the next three days. All right. Hang on guys. Okay. Chris Anderson and Charlie shorter hair Andrews's mustache. We'll talk more warns. Yvonne, you guys should go out. And check this out. These guys do a fantastic job. And it's the ninth annual warns Yvonne bash and it's the twenty third at space in Evanston. Okay. Let's take a quick break. And we got more coming up after this. Act crazy little drum, by the way,.

"Me off the record or because you know them kind of second or third hand. Exactly. But I think your decision to go back. And basically revisit the story to me, says the essential quality of those stories to understanding Retha as a figure outweighed any sort of lingering sense of loyalty to the process of fifteen years prior. Well, there's a couple of things. Number one, she's too important in order to Jesus titan. She's the time just like you know, to Queen of soul and clean the slow going to sell. And also she's a genius and and I've never I've worked with, I think a couple of other geniuses, but it's hard to negotiate genius. When you have this electric charging three when you have these ideas coming out of your head be because of the grander of her art and her place in history. I kinda felt like, man, if I don't do this book who's going to do is and it isn't that people won't come after me and do their books and hope they will. And I'm happy to help them do their books because I, you know, like I said, my version is a version, but because I. I was so close to her and I entered or intimate world, I felt I had a historical obligation. The other thing is this, the other books I've I did before that, you know be became or Ray Charles or Marvin Gaye. I always felt this only got the story now it it. Those stories weren't perfect, and every artist does leave out different things. But I kinda thought Mike gift is a ghost writer to gre-, is getting the goods and getting the essence of the funk. So I had no regrets about my book with Ray troll freaking out. Even though he didn't tell me everything. And I certainly felt that same way about Etta James and all the people that I work with inherent in her case. I felt like I left the story on the table, and so that's really the only time. Time in my career where I felt as though it was an incredibly important story here. Right? It's being left on the table. I just have to tell it and and it it was painful for me 'cause I knew she'd be angry and I really loved her and and and understood her. I thought and I'm really uncomfortable when people are angry at me. I don't want anybody angry at me, but I thought what the hell history history history in she is who she is so anyway about her self-realisation is kind of a form of coping, right? Yeah. Can we talk about that. A little more detail in both a personal context, but also in maybe the context of the politics, social politics of the era. Cho's being Rita in the sixties didn't just mean being a Titanic figure in soul music and popular culture. It meant being political. It meant, you know, inserting inserting herself into the controversy of the day, and I've got a magin some of that when when it came to her later years reluctance is or or reticence may be is there are larger connection to be drawn from how she had to be in that era versus how she chose to present later. You know, one of the things that I think is that to have a black Queen in the in the United States of America nineteen sixty seven, big deal. Just a big deal, you know and you know in nineteen sixty seven at the Riga. Oh theater in Chicago. When the DJ Purvis Boozman span crowned her the cleanup though, you know, she put the crown on and she held it until she died. I mean, and so her Queen DM is a big deal and it's a big deal not only because it changes our character if they're kind of Hoti nece and dig the tea and confidence in public posture that she never had before, but it important because she becomes avatar. I mean, she becomes if this is the along with probably Nina Simone, she becomes an extremely independent, powerful black women at a critical time in our. History we take for granted in this moment, the sort of grand scale of rita's career and her talent and her level success. But I would say in in its day, maybe the story was was more complicated than not. It was more complicated because you know she was signed by John Hammond who discovered Billie holiday and signing about Dylan Springsteen, legendary. You know, like if you wanna be signed by anybody, wanna be signed by John Hammon and he really did know what to do with her. And though there are beautiful, beautiful cuts during her six years on co, Lumbia version of guy war. Absolutely breathtaking. It isn't a cheat in. She was great. So she's, she was always going to turn out great versions, but there were no major hits and the irony of all this is clo Lumbia gave her mainstream material to try to give her a mainstream audience when she went to it who Antic records in nineteen sixty seven to produce a Jerry Wexler had her do non-mainstream material, which is to say, gospel e. r. and b. Schmidt Curiel, and that God her the mainstream audience. He crossed her over with non crossover material because of the tenor of the times. And that was the golden age of so. About a re putting on the crown and basically not taking it off for the next four decades basically. How much of that was external pressure and having to live up to the sort of legend of Aretha Franklin, how much of that was that kind of self protective impulse that you were talking about? I think he should have dug it. I mean, I think he is not that I think. I mean, I know that she's like the Queen now again, it clean only have to talk when the Queen wanted to talk the Queen sort of maintains a distance from her subject. And and I think being the Queen in abled her to do that, and and and privacy was incredibly important to her. She used and she used to skillfully, she kind of used her Queen him to ensure the kind of privacy that was important to her. Now, given the crazy kind of media thing in this crazy country, she couldn't always put off. In other words, her goal. Oh, was to control the sort of story. And she could do that to a large degree by telling jet magazine or whoever said everything was great. But for example, which she had a first child when she was twelve and she had her just a couple of months before she was thirteen. She had her second child just a couple of months before she was a full. If teen now you can't change that story and it seems to me that story is incredibly important and and and requires empathy and understanding. And and but when she told this story, it was like, yeah, I mean, my father was cool with it, and my grandmother helped raise my children and it was, you know, so or her first marriage to Ted white, you know, it was, you know, physical abuse. It was witnessed by people and got in the press. And and then when she was I put on the cover of time when her hits for broke, I think the time cover with either sixty seven or eight. She was in Yuri, aided with this story because he told them of those things that are right that she had the blues that she had a hard childhood and and and so from that time on her propensity or her, her need to control, this sort of narrative became more and more important to her and and became harder to do. Sometimes I think at talent can be so so singular. And so specific than in a perverse way, their influence as broad as maybe otherwise been because it's it's almost impossible. I felt this about Whitney a lot where you couldn't possibly do Whitney after Whitney. It just wasn't a thing. So so there's not as much kind of like fo- Whitney or when the imitation or monkey Whitney. Can you talk about a Rita in that context, as I'm curious what you think our legacy is in which ways maybe what she brought with so specific. To her that it was hard to kind of late or or version upon interestingly enough, it's a little bit like Charlie Parker or Marvin Gaye when Charlie Parker was alive, every player in the world wanted to play like Charlie Parker, and today the influences powerful ever because he was hit two, gigantic kind of figure, you know, seems to have Coltrane, Marvin Gaye has that kind of thing where today I can name you dozen current arm be fingers, who are the children of our gay. I think in a recess cases saying through now you may not be happy with people trying to found like race, which is to say, sing is a thing with all these great soul thing emotionally extravagantly and so on and so forth. But look at these shows like the voice. She did open the full lead gates, two singers. Who would take it all the way out now some of you know, like Jennifer Hudson, you know, had the chops to do it. Yes, you know does and you go back to Charlie Parker, you know, sunny stint had the choppers to play like bird in Marvin Gaye space. Let's say the Angelo or Maxwell, you know, have the job to be a legitimate heir to the Marvin gay tradition. But it takes lots of chop that take lots of taste and ultimately won. A Rita did was set an incredibly high bar and yet. You know, as much as I love Jennifer Hudson and I could name doesn't current to mail focus now who I love, but they're still something about a and again, I go back to this combo nation of joy and pain praise and at the same time, abject angst. And you put those two things together man, and it is powerful. Before we go. I can't imagine that there. There are people on the planet who have probably listened to Aretha more closely and more widely than you. And I wonder if there is whether a specific song or a vocal performance live performance that's not kind of in the canon. The obvious ones. Yeah, I've I've, I've got a whole bunch, but I'll just kind of name you too. Right. One is I think I'm gonna mention is first guy lark, which is a beautiful virgin wrong. We're at the end of it. She jumped off to just think you're, you know, have a heart attack guy. Oh, great. Him.
