"Be well, all right. Okay. Thank you. Elvis Costello, up on many of the songs we played together as a playlist on the all songs considered site. His new album, the boy named if, is out, and I'll take us out on the song he spoke about called the difference. I'm bob boiling for NPR music. It's all songs considered.

"So the possibility of hearing other colors within our own records or my records as they were shortly to become, because I then tractions disbanded. We had a very argument that we needed to have, and there were no more good records to make after blood and chocolate. And I spent a couple of years just listening. Attending a lot of conscious of other kinds of music jazz and classical music particularly. And building friendships with people in that world because I had so much to learn, having never gone to college. You know, in that time, I also was invited to write songs with Paul McCartney. I mean, if I'd been out on the road with the attractions that may have never happened, and why in the world would I have traded that experience we rode a couple of hit records? My very face was a big hit for him. Veronica was a big hit for me. I signed to a record label now with T bone. I did the opposite of king of America. We did a highly orchestrated record. But when I say orchestrated, we pulled sounds from all the elements of music that I loved and tried to make them serve these songs. It was a widescreen, crazy epic. It was like Cleopatra. You know, the movie Cleopatra, not the Egyptian gods, or she is queen. But there were some marvelous moments in it. I went to New Orleans and can we play something? Play a little bit of deep doubt truth of America. That's that.

"You see I know you are well that's I mean that's one of the great gifts of recording music I hate to speak of at Donna Ross, but you've got to say that's Eddie Kendrick singer at the top and that's as good as you can sing. Anybody. Temptations and the supremes together. Yeah. So by that time, you know, I'm sort of like, I can see myself on the dance floor at the edge of the dance floor. You're about how all 15 or 14. Sort of trying to pluck up the coast and build a dance. And in my dream of my life, we're having the conversation in this song, which of course we're never going to have. And that's what I remember. That's why it's always emotional because it's not sentimental or supposed to be said about. It's not full of sentiment to me, but it's not nostalgic. I don't want to go back to that indignity, particularly. You know, I'm doing just fine. But the thing about it is, well, first thing to note, the introduction, you just hear the feel of the ban. These incredible musicians might have had none of these people were in rock and roll. They were in jazz and R&B, the way they play, you can tell. This hypnotic groove, there's no drum machine involved as a spaciousness to the music. And their orchestration, the simple orchestration, the temptation singing backgrounds. It's one of the great science of all time. Them as a quiet, quite often seeing how other people's records disguised. And then any cadres and then Donna Ross, which is, at this point, it's about as good as the voice can be for recording, where her voice operates on the microphone. It sounds like it's being amplified by something by other some other source. It sounds like to me it sounds like a sort of when it went on to the microphone. It sounded like it came from a speaker already because it came from her incredible vulnerable voice. And I mean, as a spoken bit on it, which is very much of its time where they have the dialog. And then any Kendrick sits a note. Which you can't write down. You know, it's just a note beyond all imagining. It's one of the most thrilling moments on any record by anybody. That band had David ruffin and Eddie Kendricks, but they had all his other great voices all around him. And, you know, Diana Ross had the supremes. Wilson was a great singer. City birds on. This music just, it was so much more than most English beetroots could play. And nobody could sing like this. Nobody's saying I'm Marvin Gaye. Anybody single at Marvin Gaye spoke in romson. Stevie Wonder, you know, and he was still a teenager doing things that were just mind bending. And that's before he really took charge of the production of his own records. And my talking book and things like that. I mean, we were so lucky to live in that time. And that's not sound because it's great music by this. But when you listen to this just next to a sophisticated orchestration like plasma, this is sophisticated music. At its most heartfelt and expressive so that's one thing. Elvis Costello, what a thrill to talk to him. We'll be back with more of this conversation in just a minute. You're listening to all songs considered from NPR music. What I love about what's happening so far is that we're talking about hearing things absorbing them and either you doing something with that with what you hear or you having done something and someone hears what you do, and they take it, just talk about the way things take shape and pass along. When we seem to, you know, I don't think we intended necessarily to make this solely about orchestration, but the one thing it's unavoidable, even when you go to a song I heard as a teenager, listening to it now, I hear the sprints and the temptations, all the elements of support they get to tell that story, the way the voices are interact. Now, if you skip over all the records I made with the attractions, which is a lot of music, it's very difficult. Some of which people really like some of which people like a lot and never want you to do anything else. I sort of had the fortune to recognize when I needed to step out into a different kind of performance initially solo. I became very good friends with T boba net. We talked about the songs that I was then writing, which were the king of America record. You know, that was the first experience I had of working for a whole or for most of an album with other players. Leave it like James Burton and Jerry chef and Ronny Taylor play with Elvis Presley. And what do you think it brought out of you? Well, simply that they were more accomplished than pushing into the foreground. And it's kind of an American English kind of approach. And if you think about all the English rock and roll bands like the who and the Led Zeppelin, it's like the person who's playing is really in the foreground. Nobody stays in the background just laying it down. Interesting. Never thought about things that way. So do you want to illustrate something that you did with cheap own or pick something there? No, not because the point I was leading to is that I think it opened a door to the possibility of the attractions were a very, very good group that were other single mind or it seemed to be of a single mind for maybe only one record, which was this year's model. After that, it was me sort of trying to drive the train off various road. The car off various roads. And some of the results were armed forces was one thing, which was drawing from all sorts of ABBA and David Barry and Burt back where I have to say that all sorts of ambitious ideas, but still trust trying to make a pop record for the radio. And when that kind of thrill ran out, I went back to R&B to the things that I had absorbed from listening to stacks and we make get happy. Then I bought a piano and that changed everything. What year is that? That would be 1980. And then that is the reason why both I went to the melancholy of ballads. I went to Nashville made a record after we made trust, which has shot with his own gun on it. I went to Nashville recorded a bunch of Nashville songs that I had been loving for 20 years, the producer who was responsible for many, many big country politician heads was bewildered that I wanted to cut all these old as he thought worn out songs that we had like a sort of 9 day standoff informed by quite a lot of drinking. And made this record, which was a hit in England a huge hit. And not a hit at all in America just horrified all the people that thought I should be making new wave records whatever the hell they were. And I decided to make that we were going to the studio under 12 weeks, which was enough time to make four albums in our previous lives. With Jeff rap mercury we had worked other than JetBlue show, we'd only work with Nick Lyle. Nick and was our friend. It was somebody I announced as I was 17. We trusted a new each other, but he respected that I needed to try something. And that important thing of having somebody accept or that you could trust. So Jeffrey for imperial bedroom, letting Steve know his ability to orchestrate shine on a few tracks. His piano playing suddenly became much more expansive. I spent weeks and weeks in the studio with Jeff on my own overdubbing vocal parts of different registers and really using the studios and instrument. Then with T bar and I went the other way and stripped it to the acoustic guitar with instrumentalists who sat behind. And it opened up a, you know, this is leaving out to pop records we made every day out right the book, but working with chat baker on shipbuilding..

"But I mean, I've been through ad absorbed. All the music of the 1960s, it goes without saying that I'm hearing music which is both thrilling. Music that emerged out of rock and roll were like The Beatles and R&B, The Rolling Stones out of R&B, you know, I didn't know to slip Harper was when they did I'm a king bay. I had to get a big Jackson at first. Then I heard slim harbor that went now, that's how it goes. You know, muddy water singing. I just want to make love to you. I'm sure Mick Jagger would admit now. Sounds a little more consequential than mixing it at 23. You know, but you've got to love that they wanted to sing those songs. John Lennon singing you really got a hold on me is not necessarily better than smoky Robinson of the miracles, but for me to hear that song somebody, the group I loved was wonderful. And then all at once, this music arrived in England, which I think sort of put everything on a different track. It's what we call tamala in England, tamala Motown label. And all these incredibly poised beautifully dressed young singers who we didn't know where they came from. Suddenly all appeared all at once. And there was one Friday evening television show, which you always tuned in to already steady go. And one week they gave it completely over to the Motown. And we saw like Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye and the temptations and I think maybe the supremes, or maybe Martin the vandals, I can't remember who was on it because it was such an impact. I couldn't even remember them by the end of it. It was just sort of what was that. And next week, we were back to four lumpy lads from Bolton, doing others. Fortune teller or something, jumping around it with beetle haircuts. You know, everybody tried to look like The Beatles after a while. That was like a glimpse of style and just vocal excellence. How about if I play this for you and you can?.

"How much you love this song when she made this? No. No, no. I mean, we never discussed repertoire. Donna's process is very different to mine. One takes up a lot of time, you know, a lot of space and air because I'm a loud singer. I thought I would be pondering songs. I mean, she's a very rare singer. In the contemporary era in that she's genuinely an interpretive singer, which was the thing that marked out singers from the 1950s, particularly, particularly after the record album became a thing. Because then you weren't just down to one song being played on a jukebox or a record player on the radio. But people like Sinatra kind of he really developed the what we now stupidly called concept record. Of course, it has an idea behind it. But the idea of programming a sequence of songs over two sides of a vinyl, 12 or ten inch, was almost like Sinatra's invention at the level of emotional commitment that he brought to records like only the lonely or no one cares. And the elephant Earl sambal records were it would be rather than hart or George Gershwin, but that was before that was commonplace to do that over an album. Now everybody is doing them whether or not they should. And I think in the not to put any singers down, but I don't hear two qualities that are essential to interpretive singing, curiosity and humility in the modern era, they are essentially recreating another version that they heard on a record. So that's different. That's a different skill, and it is a skill. It's called covering. And in the single record era in the from the time that popular records were easily disseminated, there were many, many interpretations. Some of them were not much more than somebody singing off sheet music. This is a hit. Let's make another hit. And the ubiquity of a song could be spread over 7 renditions, many of them almost the same with just a different vocal type. And only through jazz did they become so much more ambitious. You hear things as an artist who works completely different than she does. What does that do for you? Like you can't sing or play piano like her, but it comes out of you in some way. Is there some music other music that you've made that maybe you could be an example? There's lots of lots of music that I have made over the years, which refers to other idioms and the one I began with, I think that I wrote songs. Particularly in the early 80s, I mean, as soon as I bought a piano, I had access to different harmonies, then one could encounter with my limited abilities as a guitar player. I could suddenly see the whole diagram of harmony in front of me. And I tried in my way to follow that thread. And from the listening that I did in that time was almost exclusively jazz and classical music. I didn't really listen to other than the hip parade. I just needed to know what our pop competitors were doing. And I had to accept that was what I was dreaming was very far away from that. So that's when I wrote shot with.

"Just really when I don't like to speak over peg Lee. I did actually meet one. She was so nice to me. The opening, you can understand its attraction to a child's ear, can't you? Because it sounds like music and a fairytale. And it's only now I'm older that I'm going. Yes, these arrangers had heard Alban Berg. You know, they'd heard, like tell us Calvin Burke, tell us, for those of you who had had Viennese music and some of the arrangers were very, very conversant with music from Vienna and I know that now because I got drawn into finding where all these sounds, but the use of the harp and the this is not like this is more like FiLMiC music, isn't it? And a lot of film scores drew from well, write that off and tchaikovsky, but also chromatic music, which kind of suggests the shifting sands of fate. You know, in a story, swirling sort of harmonies. That's comes from Wagner and WC and this sort of stuff where it's not even clear what key they're in until the guitar comes in. It's really like Vietnamese music and not as extreme in its theory. It sounds very intellectual what I'm saying, but I'm not a musicologist. I just absorb this emotionally. So when I hear some of that, then these music post schomburg, I don't hear the intellectual therapy, I hear where it takes you in a dream. And just as this does, now, this song is like circled around. This song being you're my thrill. I can think of versions of it that I've loved, Peggy Lee, the next voice I would think of singing it would be Doris Day, who also sang it beautifully. Julie London sang it very beautifully. Billie Holiday, right? Billie Holiday, of course, she would sing this beautifully. One of the most beautiful vocal performances is Joni Mitchell's record from travel augment, then spend those arranged. But I'm a little biased here because I mean my wife recorded this song. And it's not just I'm not just playing, you know, want to play a little bit of this because it's the woman I love because I genuinely think that it's the most connected to the sense of what this sunk can mean since I was a child and herd Peggy Lee. It's very strange. It's a very strange contradiction to hear Peggy Lee when you didn't know anything about sexuality sensuality, yet you're here in a voice that pause is so it's such an almost erotic and definitely.

"Feeling okay that's farewell, okay, the opening track to Elvis Costello is thrilling new elements called the boy named if I've been listening to Elvis Costello's music since his very first album in 1977 was so stoked to talk about this new music. I love it. So I picked some songs to play from the new record. I asked to play some songs that helped shape his life, but after over an hour of chatting, we barely got to talk about his new album. Elvis was more excited to talk about how his mom and dad met at a record shop. How she refused to sell one of the very first portable record players to well. Well, I'm going to save that part. We hear the sounds of Peggy Lee, something Elvis Costello heard as a child. We hear his wife Diana crawl, her Chet baker, his love with Motown. And what a thrill ride this conversation turned out to be. We begin with an early childhood memory, and a life-changing event. Some of my first sort of sensory memories are revolve around a decade, which is a kind of record player. It's one of the first stand-alone final record players, and it's, you know, it's a design of consequence, because I think they have them in the Victorian Albert Museum. I don't know. It was the pie black box was the first portable record player in England and then set obviously in these other ones which are other brands in America. But my mother was working in a record department of selfridges, department store in London, and she told a story that she was demonstrating a pie black box record player. They only had one, the factory only sent one, because they were trying to sell this new idea because prior to that, as you know, record players were sort of big bits of furniture. Yeah. You know, the early ones were victrolas and if you go back to Edison machines from the 1910s, they really substantial cabinet. They look like you should put your China in it, or even some clouds. And maybe that would make them sound better. I don't know they sound pretty swell at our House. So gradually they can't miniaturized it long before transistor radius, radius, as you know, we're also quite big things in the part. And they had this black box, the pie had made, and that was going to be the revolution. You could carry it from road to room. It was unheard of, you know. And a large man came in and started trying to buy this one demonstration record player. And she said, I can't sell it to you. And he pulled himself up to his full height and started shouting that this was unreasonable. And my mother who, as I say from south Liverpool, where you tend to be able to use your tongue as fast as your face if you want to stay around. Certainly in her time, particularly for young woman of mid 20s, she just said no, you're not having it. I can't sell it to you, sir. I'm sorry. I want you to see the manager and it was only after the manager kind of hustled him out of the department because before they sold the one record player. The whole history of music might have been different if that pipe record player had disappeared. They existed. Because that was the demonstration model. This is about 1951. And it was only after he left that the manager said, you do know who that was. I had mama said, I have no idea. So that was awesome wells. Oh my. And also, well, it's obviously rather used to getting his own way on the movie set, I just sort of like, you know, he was in some terrible film that he took bit parts when he's trying to get money to make his own great films, you know? And I love also wells, but that's a very comical image of a world having basically almost a fist fight with my mother over a record player. My attitude to music is colored by this kind of experience. And the fact that before that even occurred, my mother and father met across the count of a record shop. So records hold a particularly special place for me. When I was born, we were living in a basement flat in the border of Olympia and west Kensington. If you wanted to make it sound posh, you said west Kensington, but it was just a row of Victorian terrace houses divided into apartments from the very top where a man lived in one room to the bottom where we lived in the servants quarters as they would have been in the 1910s or thereabouts. You know, it was a modest place. We had a no bath and toilet at the end of the yard. So I'm not trying to make a poverty story out of it. That was the reality of the way many people didn't even live at that time. And many other places. But my dad had just become a singer full time. He'd been a trumpet player before that in a trumpet vocalist with a dance fan. And then he was hired the year after I was born for the journalist orchestra. And they were a very successful radio dance band. And with the money, he bought this decade. Because he had to learn a lot of songs for the repertoire, so they would send demonstration records. My first memories are of looking at the red on light. It was like a honeycomb grill in front of the speaker. It was a cream and pale blue covered vital record player quite a big thing, but still portable. And that red light, I guess I must have been lying on the floor with my toys or even possibly still crawling. I don't know how far back in memory goes. You know? But I'm very conscious of records that my mother played. We didn't have a lot of records. For pleasure, 'cause my parents didn't have a lot of money. They had some 78s that they brought down from Merseyside where they lived before that. I had my dad's dizzy glass be records. My mom's stank Kent and records. Not a lot of rock and roll. In fact, shall I tell you how many rock and roll records we had in our House? None. Wow. On the first vital albums I can remember the cover of our songs for young lovers. Which was a ten inch and songs for swinging lovers, which was a 12 inch. And a ten inch of Peggy Lee. Which was called black coffee. It was the black coffee album, but it was in a ten inch edition, which wasn't the complete album. But it was the sound of that voice as it was with Sinatra and elephant's Gerald and the other singers that Cole that my mother particularly liked were really the first sound of music other than in the hills of the song says. And I was very drawn to this very intimate stuff. So archer was one thing because he had a lot of energy. Unless he was singing a ballot and there was also swinging lovers as it suggests is swinging bright music. Peggy Lee on the other hand was like somebody telling you a bedtime story. I didn't understand the implication. So I became fascinated with many songs. Can I play you something? And.

Elvis, I've read that you're not one to look back very much, but what was the process like for you and looking back at the music for this project? I can hear in the choice of words and the choice of music and the experiences that are reflected in these songs in their original draft in English. I know where the bodies are buried so to speak. I know which hearts I broke, which mistakes I made, which romances I stumbled into that made these things come to life in for better or for worse. I can't hold on to that. And I obviously haven't, when I sing the songs today in English in my show, they are in the moment something that's happening there and then. I'm not in the slightest bit nostalgic about anything I've ever done. And I think this record is the proof of that, because you would be too protective of the original idea to ever let this happen. I don't know another group that's ever attempted this. And I frankly don't think there's another group that could stand the scrutiny of certainly not of our generation, not of our 77 kind of class of 77. You couldn't even do this. The tracks would fall apart without the lead vocal. So does that aspect of it? There's a certain amount of pride in it now, but I'm not in any way casting back trying to remind myself the way I felt. You can hear how I felt, that's what's in the original record. What I hear now are all the perspectives of all these artists in conjunction with our performances and Sebastian's incredible mix. It's an act of generosity, but I really do stress the wit the heart, the integrity of these people. Anybody that thinks we just got a pin and stuck it in the top ten, LatinX, you know, the fact that some of these artists have massive success and audiences, they stand shoulder to shoulder with people who have very small, but very passionate audiences, people who are newly on the scene and breaking through. That's exactly where I was standing in 1978. We were every record we released from late 77 to 81, I think 80 was a top 30 record. Some of them top ten some of them top 5. Everywhere every single we released. Every three albums, four atoms that release in that time were all top ten albums. But in America, that process was much slower because the country is much bigger. We didn't have any charts success until we were already forgotten as pop musicians in England. So I've never felt nostalgic in that sense because time has always been out of joint in terms of pop music. For me, the little bit of infamy that I had in pop music in England was just in that late 70s period and my career has largely been around the world since they're not limited to the shores of the United Kingdom. I left their 30 years ago. I haven't gone back. I love certain things about it, but I live in the world or more especially live in the present moment. Because you don't have possession of anything else. That's the truth of it. You have always struck me as a musical adventurer, your stuff with baccarat, the wonderful work you did with Alan tusk. You have as the musicians say you have big ears and I want to congratulate both of you on this because the record is just fabulous for all the reasons that you talked about. The artists that chose their interpretations and just the work on fabulous record to begin with. Thank you. I mean, I really do think as much as, you know, if my big face is looming up on the front of this record, it's all of those voices and all of those artists and all their talents. But the person who wouldn't happen without Sebastian, because his. Insight into the strengths of these individual voices and presenting them to me is a can you imagine this, okay, this song is really different. But can you hear this voice and then we would have two or three choices and we'd settle and then of course there was the puzzle of people's availability and their understanding. We should mention the other writers as well. There's an elston Torres who helped and Vega who helped with the adaptations of the lyrics where the vocalists perhaps didn't feel confident to make that transition all on their own in some cases they preferred to have a lyric presented to them. But that's why we've got such a varied collection of different perspectives because we've got lots of different minds on this. But the singers group, dynamic, duo dynamic, men and women, writers and singers producers and songwriters, you know, that's a lot of different minds to bring together on something and have it. Most of all, enjoy it, you know? Enjoy it. Don't be so afraid, enjoy it. Your old copy of this year's model will not be erased by listening to this. It's a different game. It also speaks to the big ears of Latin America, the whole continent, because I think people's people don't understand that people who are from outside of the country outside of the cultures don't understand that we listen to everything, man. And I think that that to that point, Felix, you know, being able to shine a light on Elvis's great work through these voices was really important to everybody involved to the writers to me to the artists to be able to just hopefully have it opened the door for people to discover this amazing artist that is sitting here in front of us. I think if we get one person, you know, to me, it's like mission accomplished, you know? Yeah, that's the way I feel. I mean, we've been knocking on the door and we haven't had the opportunity to visit so many of these countries Spain a little bit. I've had a very unusual career there in Spain with some people really knowing all of my work but curious things like the Juliet letters having a specific constituency of listeners there and I toured places in Spain that I never would have visited with The Rock and roll band. And that was very curious to me. So that, of course, is a possibility. The countries where I haven't visited, we would be ready to go just as soon as people were ready to invite us. You know, we've always been ready to go. And three of the people that played on this record are in my band now. You know, we have access to this music along with all the other music that's come in the 43 years later, including the records that we're making right now. You know, we're making music right now that you haven't heard yet. So that's what I mean about the present moment being the one I can't predict the future any more than I can the past. It's just, it's not important. What's happening is what we're doing right now. The here and now for sure, but what about the past? Have you toured in Latin America before? No. We had one tool that was due to go to Mexico and Colombia and back to Buenos Aires and then something happened and the very delicate balance of needing all of the shows to fall into place. The only time I've ever just one show in Buenos Aires and the other cause large country that doesn't share the Spanish language is Brazil, I've been there twice. But the first time there, I was singing the music of Charles mingus. I wasn't even singing my own songs. I was singing with the mingus big band at a jazz festival. So, you know, that's what I say. Sometimes other music carries you to other countries. I mean, people's knowledge of me as a vocalist is, in some countries, is based on a movie song that I sang 20 years ago or more she by Charles Azerbaijan was in a big hit movie. Now that's what they know of me in Korea and the Philippines. And maybe some places in Latin America too, but that movie was a huge worldwide hit movie, and I was on the end titles. So because my records my own records have never had any success in those countries, they think I'm a balancing singer. They have no idea. I'm in a rock and roll band, you know? So that's all right. It gets me through the door. Then I make my own case when I get there, you know? So if this record at least explains some sort of starting point, this is the first record that the band I was actually in made this record. Now before that I was lucky to have people accompanying me as a songwriter on my M is true. In 1978, 77, actually, where we began the recording, we made this with the attractions of which myself Pete Thomas and Steve naive are still in my group today. And isn't that a great thing to say? You know, not only are the songs renewed by this transformation by the Spanish artist, but we are still here to tell you about it. You know? And we're all in Joseon's wonderful documentary, which is a beautiful thing, very funny. Not at all the pompous sort of more back in the days of punk. These iconic plastic, whatever they say, and that was kind of documentaries. We're not doing that. We're telling the story at the same speed as it happened. Because that's the way it is for these people as well. They've had this invitation and they've responded to it and they've done it with wit and they haven't overthought it. They just brought themselves to the studio. That's what we want. So we need help with Costello and Sebastian Kris.

"Total total rock and roll moment. And totally an icon. I mean, come on, Elvis castello has got so many great songs. You know, prolific, but he's one of those guys that after a while, he put out so much music that I think that people got lost. And to your point, they were just made. He started to explore so many different genres that, you know, people were hesitant to buy his tickets because they didn't know what they were going to see. Yeah, yeah, I mean, he was a different, again, like I said, he's a different dude, man. You know? He was a different dude. He was you know that when he put together his first album, you know, so the Elvis Costello and the attractions didn't exist. He actually had a backing band. And the backing band was was primarily from a band called clover and the majority of the band clover went on to form what famous band of the 1980s. They were Elvis Costello's backup band on Elvis Costello's first album my aim is true. He had a backing band play with him. He did not have the attractions yet. He was a long way off from having the impostors, so that the band that played behind him was a band called clover. That clover actually evolved into a band that was absolutely enormous in the 1980s.

We really are going to talk about some financial stuff. I promise women and then have the same opportunities for saving investing in borrowing the same investments and they're subject to the same rules. Yet their circumstances and often their choices can be very different. This divide is no partially because that strikes a chord with preparing and retirement. Women live longer. They've got longer life expectancies, so they're probably going to have to provide for themselves and retirement longer than then. Yet women often earn less than men and participate in the workforce more sporadically. As a result, they tend to amass less in retirement savings. Women, particularly on married women are less likely than men to say that they're very confident about how much they save for their retirement to live comfortably and according to a 2015 retirement confidence study. From the Employee Benefit Research Institute said. That doesn't mean women are destined to struggle financially in their later years. You know, we we've met women who have done extremely well in retirement because they have a plan. Remember plan is a plan is a plan. You can lament strategies now to improve your prospects for a secure retirement. We can help you with that. Or perhaps improve your financial outlook and the retirement that you're already enjoying. Here's some great advice from a recent Kiplinger article. You know many people feel or many women feel shy that investing I should say. To feel more comfortable about the stock market. It helps to spread the risk, of course, by putting money in a broad based mutual fund investments such as the standard and poor, using an index fund or even the total stock market. Increasingly popular are these target data funds What you're paid to your retirement date and hold a mix of stocks, bonds and other assets. And they're considered probably one of the safest ways to invest for retirement, Uh, more safe than other assets that automatically become more conservative, and they become more conservative as your retirement date approaches. Little Vanguard reports that women participate in the 41 K plans that manages that. Far more more likely than men to hold a target Date fund and that men and women have almost identical investment returns. Listen, you really can plan a safe retirement income and make sure you're getting the most of your Medicare supplement it well. As well. Give us a call for 10 to 66 11 20 again. That number is 4 10.

Costello. But why don't we start in Detroit were you ball or? Am I right in assuming porn in the motor city no no. I'm from New Jersey just like Bruce springsteen. Does ago a Jersey girl exactly no. I actually moved there because I was briefly married to a lawyer who got a job with a federal judge in Detroit and I had been working for a year after college at scholastic magazines which I don't think you have the mayor but they're magazines that go into schools. There's a junior scholastic senior scholastic et Cetera. So the Detroit free press just happened to be looking for a teen page editor because there was no. Internet, in those as an imagine, nine, nineteen, sixty five. So they wanted to reach a teenage audience to get them actually read the newspaper. So every Friday, we did a teen beat page. So 'cause I of the scholastic experience are. So anyway, it was supposed to be about you know local doings at schools why MCI that kind of thing, and then I, realized thanks to some record promoters that the way to reach kids was to have some features about rock music. This is nineteen, sixty five and it just so happened that it was the height of motown in Detroit. So it was like a very exciting scene there, and then there was the underground rock scene. There was the MC five in there. A lot of local groups, some of whom like Mitch Ryder and the Detroit wheels who made it nationally but. I actually. Was Not a rock fan I was always jazz fan when I was a teenager. I was different than the other children. So my actual first celebrity interview. When I was in college, I wanNA contest with seventeen magazine was with Dave Brubeck who was my idol And that was my first experience interviewing a celebrity so that that really set me off. I mean you say you want to come rock fan but you're very convincing writing about rock and roll in sixty, five, sixty, sixty, seven you know I think problem with a Lotta the writers at that time they were big fans and they weren't. I think to be a journalist you have to be a little. Removed in disinterested. I. Mean I got to like a lot of the music and musicians and all that more like I ll loved. Soul music closer to jazz I guess and folk music because of the poetry in the riding in all hard rock. Okay. But So I think you have to maintain a perspective when you're writing about this? Not not be a fan girl. So we're featuring three of your pieces from the Detroit free press to from the Detroit free press on the homepage. This weekend. Well, love is that one of them's with the MC five and one of them is with smokey Robinson space of about three or four months. So that's that's Detroit in a nutshell isn't it? Exactly? Exactly I mean motown I went to his full USA a lot a lot of the artists and I guess it's come full circle because now I'm a co-producer of the temptations musical on Broadway Broadway ever starts up again. This pandemic well I. Thought it was lovely. Does bring the story full circle ain't too proud. We will come to that but Yang. Company many people who actually saw these amazing officer close in you you went to the hits Ville studios interviewed pretty much I. Guess All of the the the motown roster with up to say I mean I I remember also there was a nightclub called the twenty grand in Detroit in a lot of those artists played there. So I would go there to see them in hang out. Until the riots of sixty seven happened in. The van of couse you're in this was I was air I actually wasn't there when the rise started I happened to be visiting my mother in New Jersey which I guess was lucky 'cause I live downtown and when I came back a few days later, there were tanks in the street and it was very scary. Yeah Yeah The NFC five. So cool the mood of of those times. I mean, this is this is great interview. February sixty seven. So long before we at least a year before kick out the jams, you're talking to them about Psychedelia and the that kind of funny crevices many young kids who come play the guitar very well, just turn up the volume and think that playing psychedelic. Is True. I've found what must be the first ever mentioned them in print you reporting on a student or school Passi I'm one of the bonds listed as playing this party and this is the year before the MC five. Dogs. Yet. I probably ran across him at one of these small clubs that was around the grand ballroom or whatever. The the clubs were the chess maiden different small clubs in the suburbs. But yeah, I mean it was it was also while I was in Detroit. Jimi Hendrix for the first. Time. We have three be paid. We do. Yeah. Yeah. I mean now was thrilling that was like Oh my God. What is this? This is really amazing. Fantastic something else. It's a fantastic piece. The other thing is that it gave me a clue west look feel stuff turns out the website newspapers dot com now have vast quantities of Detroit free press. Yes, and so I've been undermine it for just loads of your stuff. Oh, good. Yeah. Been It's been brilliant. Be No shortage of that. But as Hendrix piece was terrific. Yeah. an interview.
