"If she just kind of slowly sort of parts from the man who gave her life. He's not for you. He probably doesn't like her. You know. So Kelsey, you're an absentee daughter in almost every respect. You know that your dad likes peanut butter cups. And live music, but have not even bothered to inquire as to what sort of music he likes to listen to. So, you know, and then you send into two strangers who don't know your dad. Now we've removed there's so many layers between us and your father, I mean, it would be a miracle for us to land on a item between the price of 50 and a $100. I don't know an expensive flashlight? I don't just get a maybe just I don't know. I'm trying to think something with the drumming, but anything between 50 and a $100 isn't going to be a great. You can't even really buy a symbol for that much. It's like right. I'm really stumped here and I have more of an issue. I don't think she deserves our advice to be quite honest. If you're writing in to a podcast asking people you don't know what you should get your dad for his 50th birthday. 50 years, 50 years on this planet. Look, this is what I'm going to say Kelsey. You've got 50 to a $100. That's enough for a round trip bus ticket. You go home, pack up your things, just clear out the house, hopefully while dads at a concert. Yeah. This is going to require a little getting to know dad, but find out his schedule. Next time he's out for the night with the boys. He's off at he's going to see I can't say Van Halen. I was going to say Van Halen. Right. No longer an option. Is that whatever version of Mötley Crüe is currently touring? Dad is, you know, in the pit at my crew. Right. This is my daughter, marshy crew. Mötley Crüe. If he's 50 in a drummer he's probably into classic rock. So let's say he's at a doobie brothers concert. Right? He's at the Eddie Money show. Wait for him, dad to be out of the house. Wait for him to be long gone. You get on the bus, you head to, okay, we don't know, even know where you live somewhere and within the vicinity of the Washington Wizards. Get your boxes, get out. Get out. And leave that with whatever, you know, the handful of positive memories he has about your relationship. If there's even that. And I also think that she should maybe when she believes her room move dad's drums up from the cold. There we go. And put them in your room. Set them up for the man. You know? Bring the posters up. The Playboy center folds, tack them on the wall. You know? Let dad, you know, as I on your room for years, you've been when will this person who doesn't understand me? I don't understand her. What is she still doing in my house? She's in college, legally, I can kick her out. I don't want to go that far. But I want that room for my drums. It's perfect. This is actually come around. I'm glad we spent some time we got to know Kelsey where you got me too. Scattered clues that she gave us, and we have solved, not only a gift situation, but I would say a family problem. Yeah. That probably wasn't talked about. It sounds like there wasn't a lot of addressing the fact that no one cares for anyone else in this family. It's a lot of quiet dinners. Oh, yeah, a lot of yeah, just the sound of cutlery on porcelain. Forks scraping, looking for that last morsel of roast beef. Yes, scraping and it's good, right? Just sort of that's the only thing that's discussed was the quality of the experience. Kelsey, I'm so glad that we've released you and your father and I guess ultimately was good, you wrote into the podcast. You wouldn't no one was going to be able to give you this advice, but us. This is honest, this is honest advice. I mean, if you called you wrote into another podcast, a lesser podcast. A lesser podcast. They probably would have been, well, you could. The apple has a new watch and then it's got really ten new bands and the rubber ones and ones leather, and that might be nice for old. We said, look, there's clearly a crack in the foundation. It's splintered over years. You don't know who your father is. You are lucky, you know, yeah. I don't want to keep going on, but yeah, I feel like we did a good thing. Oh, I'm so I feel like a weight has been lifted for people tonight. I feel better now. Yeah, right. I don't you feel less stressed now that you've well, I'll say I felt horrible. You know, after that letter, I was in a I was in a just a cloud of darkness. Yeah. Absolute just missed that I could not see through. And now it's parted and I'm I'll be able to wake up tomorrow and move on with my life. Knowing we did something good. Right. Yeah. Damien, I have my cruise control sign. I want to say it out loud again, just for one final. I have no cruise control. It's like the cruise's book themselves. What's that? I feel like that was the right amount of time. I also think the way you said it, it's like, I think that's your mantra. Absolutely. This is fans are going wrong. You stop and you take a deep breath and you go. I have no cruise control. The cruise has booked themselves. I have no cruise control. It's sort of like, you know? You're so ready now. This now that I'm saying this, I mean, I'm seeing this. It does seem just like someone who has is probably $300,000 in debt that explaining to whoever the guy who is from collections has come to take their car and they're screaming this. It's out of my control. Damien, I've had such a wonderful time. It's so nice seeing you. It was great seeing you. And now I have a beautiful piece of home decor that hopefully you'll see at some point hanging proudly in my house. I hope so. Listener, look. Go book that cruise that you're so mad at me about. You're so mad at Damien about you need to unwind on a cruise. Yeah. The podcast is now officially over, take care. Bridger take care. Thank you so much. Damien, I'm going to have the last word here. The podcast is over. The podcast is what we're drawing to a close and we're just wanted to say goodbye, right? The podcast is over. And goodbye. I said no gifts isn't exactly right production.

"Into the prescription thing. So I'm like, I don't really think I'll need that. But yeah, you go in and I remember walking in and I remember being, boy, there's a lot of people in this waiting room. Just like, it's like, he's clearly like, it's like, you know, McDonald's, it's like a drive-through. He's just gonna laser 30 people's eyes today within the course of like 8 hours, which is pretty amazing. I mean, it's a pretty amazing thing. He's like curing people's eyesight. So, but I went in and I don't remember too much of it. I just remember sitting in a room, they finally called me, and you go in, and you lie in a chair. And it's a very dark room. It's very cold. And you go in and you lie in a chair and he goes, all I remember is don't move your head. He's like, stay stressed. It do not move your head. And just stare at the little red dot. And they do one eyelid each. And what they'll do first is, and by the way, after I describe this, you're definitely not getting lazy because it's kind of a software in two minutes ago. Yeah. They slice the layer of your eye and they peel it back and then you have to stare into this red dot in the red dot is very sharp and then all of a sudden it gets super blurry and then it sharpens again. Very, very super sharp. And that's how you know you now have 2015 vision, whatever it is. And then they do the other eye and that's that. And so it's about a ten minute ten to 15 minute procedure. You're in and out. That's the shortest part of the procedure, really. And you just have to hold still for ten minutes. I can't hold still just on my own for ten minutes. I know, but that's how I am. I'm hyper and I like to move around. But for when you have the fear of God that you may go blind if you move a millimeter, you do not move. Wow, and then you're just ushered into this prize patrol van and take it to resort or something. Yes, right, exactly. Now, as your vision deteriorated at all, since in the last ten years, not that not that I've been able to tell. My vision, great. I mean, actually, now that we've been through this conversation that we've talked, you've talked me through this. And I've been so concerned about a laser going in my eye. I remember not more than 6 hours ago. A stranger was literally just sticking his fingers in my eyes and pulling my contacts off. Which feels probably more dangerous. I would actually probably like that less only because no one's touching your eye. No one's like and some people are like rough and then some people are very gentle and you don't know what you're getting. It almost seems like couldn't you have just done that? Oh, easily. Just ask me to I do it every day. Why? Why did he do it? I don't know. And you know, I guess I'm not. It was a little glimpse at who I am as a person that I didn't just say, oh, I'm happy to take the context out myself. And then he put contacts back in my eyes. Right. I've been wearing context since 9th grade. I know. Okay, wait, the situation. And he tipped your head back. He didn't even tip it back. How did he put him in? He said, look up, and then he kind of grabbed it. Woke up. He said, look up. Look up. And then some of these putting contacts in my eyes, the hope, I mean, the entire situation was very strange and look. He mentioned that he knew at some point new Mark summers. I don't know if we can even leave that detail in this because I don't want anyone to identify who this optometrist is. I don't think you're I don't think anyone is going to discover who based on what you've divulged so far. You can Google optometrist Mark summers and you won't get much. So the whole process, you know, I've had a difficult, you know, the year of I've had a difficult dental year. I'm now opening up this box of the eyes. It's like, I need to find some medical professionals that I can just depend on. I can't get some guys sticking his fingers in my eyes. My old optometrist was perfectly fine, but it's an extra ten minutes away. So I make this is all on me. Yeah, this was a mistake. This is a mistake. And look at you. You're not yourself. I can tell. You're just listen to the tone of my voice. Yeah, like when you signed on, I was like, there's something wrong. Something shifted. Yeah. You don't want it to be uncomfortable. And no. This situation. Also you know it another thing about starting interrupt, but another thing that I'm so glad I don't have to deal with at an optometrist is watching people try on new glasses. Brutal. Oh my God. You know, like guys just who have no clue about wearing carhartt. Shorts. And no fashion sense and they're trying on these glasses. And then occasionally, I remember going to LensCrafters and there'd be like someone trying on glasses and they FaceTime like their wife and their and it's just like this. Oh, it's so sad. It's a really sad, sad, sad sad thing to witness. It's a very vulnerable place to be trying on glasses. You don't know how they're going to alter how your face looks. No. And if you don't have any sense of style to begin with, you're really just stumbling through the dark. And you might put on something that is frightening to other customers. Yeah. Yeah. And then to FaceTime, that's not going to help anything. No one can tell what something looks like over FaceTime and I agree. Especially glasses, your face is a little distorted. It's a very close look at it. You have to bring you have to bring a partner to try on glasses. And then they should have a little booths. Why not addressing room? Right, you try on my pants or something. You get a little booth. It's a very vulnerable. I got to the point where I wouldn't even I would just look and go, that seems okay. And then I just walk out. And if I have to return it, I have to return it, but I'll try it on in the privacy of my car, you know, and I just don't want to be that. I don't want to make anyone else feel what I feel when I watch people try on glasses. Right. And just looking in a mirror in public feels weird. It's just something like, I'm looking at myself. I'm trying to figure out and everyone else is like you look terrible. We all know you look terrible. Right. Nothing you do is going to improve this. So it's just a sad situation for everybody. Yeah. Oh, God. Look. Damien. Talking about uncomfortable situations and things that I don't want to deal with. You agreed to be on this podcast a little while ago and I thought, I love Damian. Damian and I have known each other for years now. We've had delicious pizza together. Yeah. We're going to have a comfortable time. We haven't seen each other since before the pandemic. It'll be a nice catch up. We'll move on. And we'll continue to lead happy lives. So, earlier today I was a little shaken up well look, I've been shaking up a lot of times. Now that I'm thinking about it, this optometrist was kind of I should have just gone to bed after the optometrist, but what are you going to do? It was noon. I got a little package in the mail. I got a little something that was not something I had ordered was not something my boyfriend had ordered. My mom had not sent cookies in the mail. This was something from, I said, care of Damien fahey. But was addressed to me. Or was it the reverse? I don't know. I don't care of works. I didn't either. I was hoping is that a 50 50 chance? You put one name here on the.

"Welcome to I said no gifts, I'm richer. Weiner. Look, we should get a little business out of the way. I apologize. We have merch. March is available on the Internet. You're going to have to Google it. I can never remember the URL. But we've got greeting cards. We've got the gift master game. It's the holiday season. They want me to mention, I mentioning. There you go, go get something. Bigger news. I'm seeing a new optometrist and today he went and saw this man. He took my contacts out of my eyes for me. So that's something that I'm dealing with. A new chapter in my life where an optometrist has reached into my eyes to pull off my contacts. So if that explains whatever energy I bring to this episode, I hope that that's a little key, a little clue. Let's get into it. Our guest, I adore. I just love this man. It's Damien fahey. Damien, welcome to I said no gifts. Thank you for having me. I adore you, too. You're one of my favorite favorite people. I never see you ever, but we've hung out like three times. You are one of my favorite people. And in fact, I didn't want to mention it on our little pre podcast chat because I figured this is a good little nugget for when we're live. But you know Dave Holmes. I love Dave Holmes. Yeah, and so Dave Holmes was that some sort of a Halloween party or something, and he texted me, I got a text from him, and he said, I just need you to know bridger winegar is here, and he's dressed as what was the costume. I went as a woman having a horrible vacation. I mean, that's so perfect. Oh, that makes me very happy. After the party, David and I had no communication at the party. He messaged me on Twitter to let me know that he hadn't showed my costume. I let him know that I hadn't recognized him until he stood up for the costume party because he had this wig on. He went as mayor of easttown. I had passed this kind of alarming looking person through the party with kind of a bizarre wig, not realizing a mistake. And it all came together far too late. But I think we both admired each other's costumes from afar or at least kind of shocked and dismayed. Yes, well, I can say for him, he was admiring your costume because you don't send a text to someone who was wonderful. Anyway, I'm happy to be here. This is a trait. I'm so happy to have you here and like I said up top. New optometrists. Damien, do wear contacts? No. You know what I got? I got lasik. And let me tell you something. You may not hear this from a lot of people who get lasik. I may be the first ever to say this. But bridger, it was the greatest thing I've ever done. Don't you hate the lazy people that if you ask someone who got lasik about lasik, they go, let me tell you something. I guarantee they'll say 90% chef. It was the greatest thing I've ever done. And I think that speaks to a life below a certain threshold of excitement. If getting lazy, if getting a laser shot into your eye, it was the greatest thing you ever did. I think we need to take you out and get you put you on a roller coaster or something. Some sort of decent bit of some sort of drug, you know? Let's get a little dopamine pumping in you this is just a sad statement that that's the greatest thing. But I get it. It really is an amazing, it really is an amazing thing. And I got about ten years ago and I was working on the radio as a DJ out here. And I got an offer to me for free as part of an endorsement. Oh, okay. Yeah. And my mom just had it done. And I said, well, I'd like to speak to the doctor and it was one of these companies you hear that. It had like a jingle. And I always think, oh my God, there are so many red flags already with this free lasik. Yeah, I'm like, okay, this is going to be between like a liquor store in a vape store in a, you know, in a little mall, but no, but I did a little video interview with the guy and I asked him how many he's done. I said, I'm going to need to know how many you've done. And he goes, well, I do, I probably do thousands of years, so I probably don't somewhere around 80,000 of these. And I'm like, oh, wow. Well, that's a lot. I probably will be in good hands here. And I was. And so it is a remarkable thing. And kind of one of the weird parts about it is you go up until 33 years old. I couldn't see things unless I had glasses on, you know. Pretty pretty much that length of time. The majority of my life. And then one day you get the surgery and you can see perfectly and you just wake up in the morning and it's like this weird miracle because that quick moment where you wake up and you don't realize that your brain doesn't recognize that you had the surgery. So it's just like this weird miracle that happens over the course of like a month. And then you just slowly get used to it and now there's probably two or three moments a year where just out of the blue, I'll just be like, oh, right, I have lazy. I got lasik. This is amazing. Now, walk me through the actual surgery because up until literally a week ago, everyone that had had laser had basically described it how you had the whatever over the top, best thing I've ever done. Then I had some coworkers two different ones in the same meeting. Say that they had to be restrained while getting the lasik that and also I think that they were given xanax. So I'm now I'm now wondering because I have considered it. But I, my fear is that my primal instincts overtake me. And I'm like, throwing the doctor off or doing moving jerking so hard that suddenly my face is sliced open. Yeah. You don't want to move. They say don't, it's really, you get to a point where they well, first of all, let me just I'll take you through what you do a little consultation. Then you come back and then they say you can not need someone to pick you up and drive you home. And I didn't have anyone at the time to do that. So I had to have one of the prize patrol employees at the radio station. Pick me up. So after this crazy surgery, I'm bandaged up, I can't see anything fairly. And you picked up in the prize patrol van. No, you know, for this story, let's just pretend I was. And you know what I mean? Yeah, I can only live in a reality where a rap Durango with dollars all over it. No, it was just a regular kind of car. And anyway, so you have to make sure that you're picked. And then they say, if you want, because we'll give you, we'll give you a small prescription. We'll give you some xanax, a small little xanax. And I said, I don't think I'm not super.

"That is John Fahey, the American guitarist who died just before his 62nd birthday in the year. 2001. Major figure for anyone who picked up a guitar in the latter half of the 20th century. That piece is called Twilight on Prince George's Avenue, and it comes from the best of Fahey. Volume two. Hey, he's music characterized by open tunings on strings and this so called finger style technique, and we will hear both of those in these next two pieces, both short and both. In the style of John Fahey. In fact, this first work is called Requiem for John Fahey, and it comes from Gwen Raymond Glen Topher Raymond to use her full first name. From an album called You Were Never Much of a Dancer, which is full of Fahey style guitar work and a little bit of banjo and even a little bit of fiddling, too. She's a Gifted, multi instrumentalist. We'll hear that from Gwen Raymond. And then we'll hear from Glen Jones, who actually recorded with his band called A Sack on John Fahey is label back in the nineties and has become AH, kind of keeper of the flame of this John Fahey style of music will hear a piece called the Sunken Amusement park. From his latest album, called the Giant, who ate himself a reference to John Fahey and other new works for six and 12 string guitar to just finish the title. Takes almost as long as say, the title is takes for Glenn to play. The piece will hear that right after this work by Gwen Raymond called Requiem for John Fahey. Thanks. Thank you. Thank you. Yeah, If you're wondering about the water at the end there, the piece is called the sunken amusement park from Glen Jones from his album called the Giant who ate himself. And other new works for six and 12 string guitar. The giant who ate himself is a reference to John Fahey, the late American guitarist who was such a formative influence on Glenn Jones. And before that, we heard the Requiem for John Fahey from the English guitarist and occasional banjo and fiddle player, Gwen Raymond, one of her, Raymond. To use her full name, and the album that that came from is called. You were Never much of a dancer will return to both of these records. Both both Glen Jones and one of her Raymond as we continue with this edition of new sounds. But right now, let's hear some music from the American guitarist Michael Hedges, who in the 19 eighties and nineties really amassed a huge reputation actually sort of outstripping someone like John Fahey, who was at that time. Living in obscurity and in fact in poverty for a few years, But Hedges had built up a sizeable following because he was an incredible live performer on also because he had this amazing technique where, like they, he would use open tunings and finger style guitar playing. But it would also do the two handed tapping technique, which back then was still kind of a newish thing. And he was on the Windham Hill label, which you know, although it became associated with the new Age music movement actually started as a tribute to John Fahey Zone to coma label. So that's why there were so many guitarists in the early days of that label. Anyway. Michael Hedges first in this set, and a piece called because it's there, which is played on 1/19 century style harp guitar. Had just died at the age of 43 in an automobile accident back in the late nineties, and since then, the mantle of his kind of guitar playing has been picked up by, among others. Khaki King, who's based here in New York. She uses a lot of the same tapping techniques, finger style guitar playing open string tunings the whole bit from her album Glow will hear a piece called Bowen Island.

"Just a few moments live on tape from the four seasons landscaping company. This is the michigan cast. Were all about michigan. Politics and policy in the national stories. Impacting our pleasant peninsulas. I sort and i am christine. Bury the governor and the attorney general. Pull the rug out from under end bridge line five. Let the fat lady singing quite yet for the controversial link between peninsulas. Legislators apparently aren't concerned with our skyrocketing covid nineteen pandemic. they've left town after doing nothing to slow the spread. And we haven't forgotten about the presidential transition or the looming debate among democrats between pragmatic progressives and the purists and later in the bottle talk with by friend and former partner voters not politicians founder. Katie fahey about the upcoming round of gerrymandering across america. Let's begin though with the pandemic christine safe. To say shit's gonna get serious. Legislators say they want to be a part of the solution michigan but this has been a long hard stressful time for all of us and also know that the legislature showed some interest in having the table however i have been asking members of the legislature for some thoughtful partnership here to bring our numbers down. I would encourage you as members of the press to ask. If they've got some plans to bring. Because i've been asking and the one great tool that we know makes a difference in terms of a mandate they have taken off the table and the governor makes it clear. She's not tightening restrictions just yet but it is more than just a possibility. I've been very clear all along that. I put the health and welfare of the people front and center and listen to the best scientists that we have which are the best in the world and we'll make decisions to keep people safe but if you wanna ask the legislature. If they've got some additional actions that are willing or interested in taking. I would be interested in the answer. 'cause i've not gotten one when i've asked the question. This has been a long hard stressful time for all of us and and all that the legislature showed some interest in having a seat at the table however i have been asking members of the legislature for some thoughtful partnership here to bring our numbers down. The governor's between a rock and hard place. Right now. she has. She knows what needs to be done. The question is will the decision can do it. It's a matter of voluntary compliance and there are people out there who simply refused to wear a mask because it infringes on their freedom although i would speculate that having a ventilator on or dying is a much bigger infringement on your freedom and i don't understand why it's such a burden to put on a mask just to be on the safe side it doesn't it doesn't hurt that much to put on a mask for most people who can't medically wear one clearly. That's a different situation. But so many people say. Show me the science where this help. Show me the science. They don't mean show me the science they mean. Show me the science that fits my ridiculous world view. There might not be any science. That does that because your worldview is just messed up. I don't get that. I think it's a kind of a selfish thing. It's not an infringement on liberty at all in my view But more importantly while this this lack of action by the legislature who complained and complained for months that they weren't part of the solution that governor went had rolled out. They wanted to be part of it. Finally the supreme court comes in cuts her off at the knees say that we hope show worked together with the legislature and then what happens the legislature leaves town. They say oh. There's no time sensitive work to be done. She says come to the table. They will come to the table. But we're going to rule out lockdowns and asks so i don't know what they're bringing to the table in a if they think that there's a tax cut or something that's going to make covid go away but they're they're a one trick pony and that trick when it comes to cove. It is to do nothing and the reason they wanted to do. Nothing is because it's not popular. There are no easy solutions to this problem. What has to be done is a one hundred percent compliance with wearing masks and a shutdown of the most dangerous types of businesses that means shutting down. The bars severely restricting. If not shutting down indoor dining across the state of michigan things like bowling and the large meetings and weddings and funerals anywhere where people congregate in confined spaces and that's got to be stopped. None of that is popular. None of it's fun. None of it something that any of us wants to do but it has to be done. The legislature says it wants to be part of the solution but the reality is. It doesn't have the balls to make the hard decisions that need to be made this cowardice on the part of the legislature. They would just as soon that the governor take all the political heat for what's gonna come down and there's going to be more i would venture to say in the next few days we're going to be hearing more from the governor and is going to be stuff we don't want to hear other than if we want to stay healthy. Well you know. She's the only grownup in the room. And we were talking. How there's no political courage to do the right thing on the part of the legislature. It's more than that. They insult us with what they do. They insult us. I might shuki said the other day that mother nature can't be beaten you know. This is part of mother. Nature covid nineteen this kind of spread this pandemic. This is not part of mother nature you know. A tornado is nature. This pandemic human behavior plays a part here and there are things we can do to slow this down to stop it. It's not mother nature. And i you know this herd immunity that he wants to develop what they're just trying to force on us by not taking precautions and by modeling. This really bad behavior going out to super spreader. Events not wear masks not distancing at all. It's it's it's an insult it's important to that we get out of our silo. We are not alone in this. Everybody across the nation is going through it right now. And it's not just southeast michigan in in the state of michigan where it was the first time it was southeast michigan lesser extent was lansing in a little bit of ann arbor because that's where the population was but now the entire state in fact on a per capita basis. The very worst part of the pandemic's in the upper peninsula were very few people live but an awful lot of people are getting sick. And it's not just michigan. Michigan is doing better in the midwest than most of our neighbors other states are reinstating partial downs from border to border of the united states and that includes states run by republicans democrats and independents in chicago. The mayor's issued a new stay at home order. That is in place for thirty days in both wisconsin and ohio. The governors are taking action democrat. Tony ivers and republican. Mike dewine pretty much on the same page each day. This virus goes. Unchecked is a setback for economic recovery. Are bars restaurants. Small businesses families and farmers will continue to suffer. If we don't take right now so tonight. I've signed executive order. Ninety four advising wisconsin is to stay home to save lives. We must get back to the basics of fighting this virus just like we did last spring and it starts at home. It's not safe to go out. It's not safe to have others over. It's just not safe and it might not be safe for a while yet so please. Please cancel the happy hours. The dinner parties sleepovers play dates at your home. We know that mass work they are the easiest most cost effective way to limit the spread of covid nineteen. Every retail employee. Has the right to work in an environment that is safe as can be which means all customers must were masked are mask order was issued on july twenty third and fat says chest that we are joined by chris mitchell the executive vice president of the michigan health and hospital association and chris You guys are right in the middle of all of this. First of all how prepared right now are michigan's hospital systems to deal with these record-setting setting levels of cases and aspirations.

Megan show we give ourselves a NAS? A man of distance but was still gonNA cover a lot off here on Friday. We had to bring you all of your writing analysis. The satellite joined Bananas Salmon Marshall Absolute Pleasure to have you invoice. How we going is big really good Saif Sand and happy to be working side gang to be bringing you the best of Roseville this weekend and right around the country of course but I'll tell you something right now. Hug taught him how many has never looked better from the. Toronto's you look terrific today hugging Ka. That's the best I can but nausea to courtney love a band hall. At the moment we are in one. But we're going to get out of these we're GONNA roy stick fatty hiking winners. Send us only away from Josie. Now we know where we started. Tweet we stop at Joseph's track report the prohibit loss. Wait let's let's recap these second he said. You gotta be gotta be pies on spayed. Di Di all were. And they'll be coming off the route of the middle of the track. Josie absolutely not last week Josie placed hammers. She got something for this. Well hopefully we can get something Roy this week as well look ask seeks maters. We'd go at a little bit. Further soft seeks at the moment so expecting fifteen meals on Thursday fraud. I expecting I Ryan but Saturday expecting zero to six meals a gain so I think we're going to be in that soft seek seven Ryan Account. Expect these track to draw it really interesting to get further off the rile. Not so much the case he really own speed again but even horses. Just on the riles or a big advantage. When it goes eight six made is in the soft six Ryan. So don't be surprised. If the riles are the place to be. Look back to rile fullback rows. You could probably still win so darn expecting to get too far off. The fence are now. That's the pattern that was last week. And you sort of Virginia again. This week I think would be the case this week. Woy think they might go for horses. They're hard up against the rows one-two-three lines this Saturday. The Guy. We've heard that I very good Josie. Let's jump into the rights now. I rice. We're going to have a look at of course is the Tankard. I've a twenty four hundred metres very elegant. You're five and deservedly so to five followed in the market village. That five dollars Mugabe does muster g non does Mirage dancer in southern France both thirteen dollars tariff at twenty three dance area twenty-six truth at thirty one dollars Josie. We'll go to you and the map here. Really Secular Fahey woolley done. There's a lot of speed on Piper. Roy think very elegant will roll forward. We saw her roll forward last seven days ago when she was just beaming boy a dive. I think they'll roll forward John McCain take deposition Angel Truth Going forward I think four nail you'd expect to be at its fetus. Mugabe possibly could go forward. I think now it's had its second. Go at twenty four hundred meters. It could possibly roll forward. And there's a few days that just don't have the yearly gates paid to be able to do that with very elegant fourth. This time last year she was fourth option. One the CEO. She went really well. I think they said something really. Well spoke about that Rice where she finds finished second to die. He's a superstar. We spoke with these inform. One hundred and twenty-five die have absolutely gone extremely slow in that Rice lost weight but twenty two or three to eleven to seek time clearly the best laws four hundred lost two hundred of the die by far just close to half a second best boycot or. I think she'll win. I think she'll roll forward. John macrobiotic control the rice and she'll be two affiliates. Yea won this race last year. Two dollars sixty seven to a dollar sixty but that was off the back of winning the brain but somewhat unlucky in Australia Cup with issues. He's not going as well for me. Plus doesn't have the tactical advantage that very elegant will have always very elegant in the tankard. She proved a class. Last docked ships loomed up. It was a terrific Roy. Thomas macron Donna. Because he was able to take it up. A heated flat spot very elegant nosing front about he was able to fought back and Buddha. A love the way she held and she backed up once before that was from the white fool. Obviously into the Oxygen Victoria. Sh we know she's a two thousand four hundred made a win in the. She's charrier off by very elegant and I think rolling forward outside of Angel of truth or couldn't imagine she'd give up that advantage and get into a NAS rhythm and then settle for the twenty four hundred Mehta Gallup with that Mirage dancer and Moussagy. I think Mr. Jeez the best at solder in this field. He beat southern France over in Europe when they last met day. And I up. Winning these runs behind master on was terrific last dot. Ob It on a heavy non draw surface. He could improve out of the Ground Ivy. These trip most ability. He's not going as well Mugabe wait got group three. He comes up another level he so it's very elegant rice to win. Technically he bought oil Weiss. I look for a broad from one of these jockeys to get rolling at the item. I can take away that breeds and that turn of foot from very elegant and it might be the Rod on Moussagy. Just quickly you did mention. It was a really good. Pick up to mention that she did back up in the visa off the white full she actually filed she seven so there is. There's a slight knock. It could be that. Maybe she doesn't back up. She needs some link. Between Iran's bought. The profile was perfect but are just want to punish that you mentioned it so. It's really good to cy that she has backed up before she rented finished seventh in the works and she was four dollars. It was a foul issue variety wrong. That's the case. I think that animated well You guys know nothing more than when you hit the sign. That horse especially in a group want now. Let's have a look at the voluntary. Well I'll tell you what we're GONNA shorter Ye. Gentlemen Don Wait Funds. Ta Adults Seventy Five. So I'm interested. He chance they probably don't four. Forty MARKET GETS FROM THE PAINTINGS. Twelve bucks for say no and Missile Mantra. Both Iden- Does as got twenty shot about twenty. Six game of thrones. Twenty seven nudge. Forty six dollars and then just over the page aspect ratio. Best of the rest at sixty one dollars Josie funster very short but is justified. I think so. I think she's an absolute potential superstar. If she's not already there just with the Matt I think she had the barrel forward but again not a lot of speed on pipe. Pontes aspect ratio. I think we'll go forward and here. I think where the rights can be won or lost. I think that he's talked to clearly. Have between them they both exceptional phillies hard to knock either of them. But I think our probably roll forward as well and I just don't know where the problem beale has that tactical speed to be able to do that. Third up he fund star in the spring on the floor knocking off probably'll it was a dollar seventy four or five hundred one three and a half links. I just think these rice. It's up so much like that Rice They went extremely slow. Start yes fun. Style was in the advantage position and just had the technically vintage probably it was pretty good ren very close to debate and link not even that but they've come home twenty five twelve thirty four. That was the best of the die by a significant margin. They would've won the Kumo. They used to run the Cornell if they decided to run. They've got panels on the wrist. They got panels on the is the too serious racehorses going forward with both of them but I think fund star will have the tactical advantage and she's an absolute beauty. She will be but the last question overdrawn barrier right. She's she'll be in two minds early doors where the row. Ford and talking. Just come back and rod for a little bit of luck. I think that plays into the hands of probably joining soda. A breach of the China of probably Siamese. She's not based on a wet track in which funds stop later on last stat and she was able to technically outlawed on that occasion. But I love the white probably going fishy. V that she's had she's GonNa run a good tooth estimators. She can jump and lane close out and be wrought on fun styles hammer wherever she wants to sit in this field. These are clearly the 2-based horses in this race by five and ninety bad luck will bring one of these two undone because missile mantra as IAGO.

"Finished my undergraduate degree i went back to school to get a graduate degree in a <unk> creative photography. It was called at the time sir the art program the normal place to go would be to become a photographer. At what point do you wind up finding your way though into the the selling side of our business well it was a bit of epiphany. I realized at a point in time that i could be a photographer in an struggling artists like many of my friends or i could get into this area of showing an exhibiting their work and back in those days. <hes> one major way photographers interacted was through an organization called the society for photographic educators as during this time when when i was in grad school i was also teaching photography at compton college so they would have the annual meetings. The teachers would gather other there because many of the cars that were well known where teachers and that's cow. I kind of got to know them all and so when i got out and the gallery world was was just starting a i was able to contact these people. I know who they were where they were. You know they knew me and i said let's do an exhibition of your work and so we begin during that very thing coming you stay at the gallery. World is just starting. You're really referring to photography. Yes gallery world but you had done some work with g ray hawkins unbelievable yes and at the time i was the director of contemporary photography at jury hawkins and i worked there for ten years all working on all the exhibitions and in my main area was sort of ours press relations and so that was my main thing and of course those are the days where we were doing things that you've never been done before in photography <hes> we set records on prices aces for the first time and we sold a curtis sat edward curtis set of careers. I remember the first time we had a whistle advance. Finance allows for a thousand dollars people just went crazy. They could believe it. It's possible and <hes> so those are the head ears so to speak. What do you think that was happening. Then i mean what was it about that time period that made it right well. I think film you know in the sixties and seventies big part of our world and french new wave and just american in a cinema was developing a very serious way you know and tardy was always there but it became a collectible genre genre me people responded to it. <hes> people like dennis hopper allen ginsberg taking pictures helmet new of course an avid on and pan and these were you you know top high end professionals were making beautiful images and making them in small editions. If if even edition at all some you know they were not that many out there and and so back in those days she for very little you could build a very important darva collected. Many people did who knows the latter. Half of the twentieth century became something that was very new new and fresh and people responded to that. You know it's interesting. Were you right now. How these pieces up in the office that were sitting in. I'm looking at them and some of them. I have never seen before but there is an inherent familiar holiday with us paces. I know them and i know them before even seeing them because it's speaking in a language i think that amari familiar with and i'm wondering of that's what made it finally work by the mid nineteen seventies you had a generation coming into their own grew up in a time that television has come onto the scene that movies are more mass and more artistic a ah more available <hes> that magazines have been around and more importantly. The camera has been in the hands of average people for a longer period of time in that it feels feels. Perhaps maybe more something that belongs to them. It was a part of their generation when ansel adams's workshops up in yosemite. It was the rich which lawyers dentist you know where doctors that photography was their best <unk> hobby and they had the dead money to buy a great equipment and they would go up on these workshops as occasion and ended up buying his pictures in the evenings if you hey if you like picture you want to buy it it's available for nothing of course at the time but that kind of started an aspect of photography collecting and then you had <hes> you know beaumont newhall oh and edwards family man and all of the and john circus gi who the museum started to become interested in building photography collections you know in major museum recognize tar visa a work of art. You know you have to do something to be reckoned with you have to you have to open your mind up to that possibility ability <hes> even here. It was my own exhibition. I created an exhibition called massive starlight with linda rich and we had it at the we held the exhibition at the county museum in i think it was eighty six and it was the first time a major museum in the west coast really recognize the power and the creativity inherent inherent in hollywood photographs sell the general idea of recognizing wonderful new original innovative photography was it was in the atmosphere. You're harming. Everybody was very open to it. It isn't a parallel market or was it becoming already part of the more formal gallery market i mean was it just a new medium that was coming on or was it a new business that was coming on. I think it's a new business <hes>. How would you distinguish at because it was a certain amount of resistance because you know people felt when they were buying a painting they're buying unique object but as you know the painting aren't necessarily unique you know van gogh did sunflowers painting ethics six times you know so different versions around even even in painting and sculpture but i think because it was a multiple and certain stivers did not addition some did i think that was in many ways a little bit of a deterrent for people you know in quite <unk> early on but it took twenty years of educating the the <hes> public to really how rare these things are and how important they are to really settle in. It took a while to do that. I was there in those early days. You couldn't give those pictures away for nothing and <hes> of course herb and peter if set records in pricing <hes> we did a man ratio and in nineteen eighty six <hes> soda pick for nine thousand dollars in the same image suggest sold in paris for three point one million million dollars chases and so when people start seeing that kind of turnover. That's another incentive to kind of wake up and recognize the monetary value. That's you know <hes> people don't really have that as a factor in collecting they collect collect collect but then when they see evidence of the prices increasing dramatically that becomes a factor in making decisions about what they buy and when they by being in the business i've always i have this term that i've used which is <hes> crass but gets the point class. Am i call it. The schmuck factor and that is that people are attracted to whatever neverthe- attracted to beautiful things and whether they are by someone who is important to whether it's not by someone who's important whether there's great craft and enter does not great craft they're they're just attracted to it and they wanna possess however there's always the same basic stumbling block somewhere along the lines which is if i buy this for whatever whatever the price is and i get an home in a hanging on my wall and i'm happy with it and my neighbour comes over renison. Take a look at this new picture. I just bought and they say what would you pay for it because i spent a thousand seven dollars when he says what do you mean. That's a thousand dollars. What is the thing that i get the say that the fines why it's a thousand dollars and you you need to make an argument for this now you really have to talk about you know what it is inside that image that makes it important well. That's many questions and in that one question that you just said first of all. I always tell people you know. Don't buy what you think is going to go up in as an investment as a factor and but put it aside for obama and really look at what you're looking at and say am. I passionate about that picture to do. I feel good. Wow look at that picture. Droid learn something about the world. That's different than what i knew who and i see that picture. Is this something that gives me pleasure. Visually you know you're not obligated to have to justify it with a neighbor or friend but you can say i simply like it and if it goes up in price that's just pr that's great because i get to enjoy it for ten fifteen twenty years and so that's my motivating factor there now. Some people want to know oh that well when i spend a lot of money is going to appreciate in value. It was no guarantee. If there was a guarantee i'd buy everything and if you look around around and see that certain photographs are increasing in value and you asked me my advice. I'll give you my advice and then you know if you're if you're really secure scheuer you approach it in respond in that manner. If you're insecure about what you did i spent a thousand dollars while then maybe you should make but the thing is is that you can look at all of the figures in the history of art that when they first purchased whatever the first object was they acquired that many of the most of them were chastise in some my for buying something that was worthless or meaningless to most people bet subsequently became something very significant and the evolution of our cultural history and so that's i have to look at it. I'm just floating along responding to what i like now. If you have a good smart dealer that's very informative. They'll tell you you know here's something you should look at because it's in the direction where you're going with your collection but if it's nineteen seventy five and you're trying to convince somebody you spent a thousand dollars you have to you have to find that one person. That's very confident very secure and loves. That's what they're looking at when i did my first serving pen show i had was hanging the work one night and i got a call after hours. This guy said hey. I'm in my car. I'm <hes> i'm just a block away can come in and see the show preview the show 'cause they have opened and i. I wanted to go home but i said sure. Why don't you come on. I i would refuse him so the guy came any watch around four urban pictures right away and i was you know queering him as we were. I was writing up the invoice and what made you make this choice <unk> active so quickly said listen when i grew up i knew of these pictures i was young. I didn't have any money now. I'm a successful for business person. I have the money and the wherewithal to buy them and once again. That delay was there where now he can afford it now. He wants to rely great because so many times they get the opposite person at that. Which is the guy who can't get over the fact that at one time it was this price now it's this price and and what's the percent usually doesn't buy. I ran into that quite a bit. Also you know there are people out there that collect to that or compulsive people they spontaneous people and and they just react on instinct his just as valid as has anybody. You're in an interesting situation here to here. We are on la brea. Very few people are gonna come here by chance and not on a shopping straight. I'm not in farmers market a non third street promenade. I'm not on rodeo drive. So whoever comes in your door probably made a decision at some point or another that they at least want to see photographs. Yes are most people coming here to see an exhibition or are they coming here at the collecting on the brain we'll know with all our galleries including painting thank sculpture and photography <hes> ninety five percent of the of the viewers that come to the galleries are non buyers in the in the immediate <hes> time they may become buyers later. It's primarily not buyer serve. You're they're passionate enthusiasts educators. They just wanna come for the pure enjoyment of seeing the original prints in front of the other five percent are a regular buyers and so they're aware of what we do by the the internet by our advertising and because we over period time a build a mailing list up and we inform them what we're doing and so they come specifically going to see that show now our gallery stable is very diverse so i can have a fashion show one month in a civil rights show the next month so i like the idea if people coming in to see civil rights and walk in the back room and seeing a fashion pictures they love the end up buying that or vice versa but i would say it's about ninety five five five percents breakdown for us now many galleries painting hours. I'd say it's you know it's ninety eight percent to percents that by so that's kind of how breaks i know a lot of artists are photographers or what have you come in to see what their who inspired them or what their colleagues are doing to equals. I just came from a gallery in beverly hills. <hes> one right on rodeo i would say a large percentage of the people who wander into their gallery are wondering into it because they're just on a conveyor belt that has to be a jewelry show shopping. Did we dress shop. It could be anything they're just you know this flashy things in it and they just happen happen in but you at least have people you know. There's hardly anybody that comes in here. That isn't at least interested in what's on the walls whether or not they're gonna find themselves as a collector. So are you creating your own market. I mean what percentage of the people who you count on as your bread and butter are people who you picked out of that group that just came to take a look at his show and develop them and cultivated them. Why would say was photography in the beginning of my career photography. We've always it's always always been about creating that that collector <hes> being being a finding the connoisseurs and contributing to their interests and then and once you <unk> pentecost place that you you keep that process in play you know and you build on it and you their friends instrument <unk> new people discovered targeted the artists brings in new people that interested in their photography and see things that they didn't know existed and so the collector base broadens and grows over a period of time and it's like anything <hes> you just become well known and so people will seek you out to see what's going on and the other thing too is that i'm not interested in hollywood pictures or music pictures or sports pictures or wha- photojournalism ivan stood in the best of those genres so in other words. I don't want to be known as a music gallery. <hes> the those most people just collect the subjects. I want them to collect the photographers recognize that the handful of music stars really were innovative in really were presenting something really different or truthful or genuine authentic those people i wanna work with and represent and subsequently show and place in collections because i think the collectors over time <hes> what they collected recognizes important ever find that difficult cult. I know if i was in your position eventually be faced with this conundrum. Which is i can take a photographer who i appreciate it a lot. It's a very good photographer for <hes> in music is their subject matter but i know the picture they took keith. Richards is always going to sell ten times as much if not one hundred times as much much as the picture he took us some kid getting his first crack on stage at some honky tonk in the south that he wants shot no not really i mean if my collectors have to trust me and what i put in front of them as something that's valid authentic and real and whether or not they like it is up to them. I won't take a picture that someone made of keith richards 'cause. I don't sell keith richard picture. I sell jim marshall's picture. Keith richard hoare eastern eastern russell's picture of jim of of keith richards so it's really looking for the people that made the most iconic meaningful portrait's i started stick with that <hes> but that's zone tricky business to not that it isn't really the definition of a part of the definition of our job by you know jim. Marshall was always always gonna be caught underneath the shadow of his own subject matter to some degree it takes a great deal of art dealer muscle to be able to make sure that that collector knows they're buying a jim marshall not buying a vehicle to the rockstar that they you'd be surprised at how well informed and educated people are nowadays oh days about ferrari the past less so but nowadays you can throw out a bunch of those pictures you could lamb across a counter tabletop and you can pick out it's jim marshall the world anti leave of its or the eastern russell or the barren woman you whatever it might be marc seliger it you can spot the stylistic stylistic differences between these different individuals and this is what i try to even with. Jim marshall the first book we did. I added called not fade away and we deliberately put a little teeny picture jimi hendrix the cover but was only about two inches by three inches and the idea was we're selling jim marshall here not jimmy hendrix right and it was that was the whole concept and when you look at his pictures distinctively different than <unk> leave of it certainly mark seliger. Allergan is a very different <unk>. Danny clinches different picture than jim marshall even though danny was very influenced by jim. They're all different so i my job is to find those different people so just a handful. I don't want thirty. I want six or whatever five or sex and those those stats to work. I wanna represented sal. I can't be greedy and try to corner the market. Just you know have everybody i mean. Even though i have a lot of artists right now it's time making a difference in this and occurs resumes. We're talking time. Well yeah that if we go back to again mid seventies when mrs beginning for you and it's beginning for a lot of the business in general you take an example like some of the names you drop like irving pan. Irving penn was an active photographer of that time period of the nineteen sixties as well and that at that time it's it's just contemporary work. They were yet to become the iconic images at that they are now are and he wasn't yet the institution that he now is just by surviving over that time period to buy in irving penn. Today is indirect respect to the fact that over over the past fifty years he has remained at the top of the heap so that becomes somehow a little bit more important than it would have back then then the photograph itself yeah. It's it's <hes> just was meeting with a collector day. Who's a major art collection and he said one of his photographs is frozen food food. He has an important collector recognize that and he was probably way ahead of 'cause he bought it many years ago so he was just ahead of the curve as a as a visual individuals. Somebody's collectible interested in the art world and visual imagery. That's significant. He recognized that because because he was informed and because he was aware of that contribution attend made and how he was distinctively different than his his peers. Our things things changed over the years both the business of the collectives themselves. You know it's currently made that. There's something very generational. More people interested in collecting a ah.

"fahey" Discussed on Art Dealer Show

"Hello years since i've seen video and it was just that one time and to be quite honest. I'm not even sure of what i'm remembering. At least this part of it was even in the video itself. It might have been just a a story that tim bradley told us about after our before showing the video or maybe i just completely managing it or will look. I wasn't one hundred percent focused on one hundred percent of the time back then. If you understand what i'm getting at but but now here we are decades later and i'm back at the same old fahey klein gallery at the same place and la brea boulevard and this time i'm invited and and i'm not even stealing wine and cheese. I'm here to interview david fahey himself for this year pumpkins somewhere along the line. You started to tell me about his early days while he was starting out as an r._t. You're working for the now. Legendary g ray hawkins gallery during that time magazine of sorts that did all in his own a project not like this here podcast for this journal. He interviewed important photographers of the a day along with that. He took portraits of them. This by the way became a project that he continued on for many years and while talking about about this i took notice of a picture on the wall and it looks really familiar to and as i stared at i started to whack my finger rat at nasr iraq my finger at it i said to david i said you know i saw this video from probably the early eighties of g._o._p. To work and then i knew i was looking at your pictures. The portraits and then i saw him and i said i know that mask from that interview i saw back then and then i can't remember if if it was part of the video or someone told me a story from when the video was made paul tell you the story. This is now becoming a lower so that was aziza. Tim bradley yes. It was ten mystery solved. I'm going to see this tape again. Chimp rally was my neighbor in pasadena and anybo that tape and i i try to get that tape back for years ono tim has it up shirt but no what what happened was we're doing. The interview on the backs backyard of jack. White house and joe has a mask on and okay. It wasn't just a mass with the whole time of this interview has been wearing a large black lone ranger style mask and in the center of the mask between his two is and pointing straight down his nose was a detailed sculpture of jesus. The kind again in one of those christians supply houses is this is one of the graphic kind to blood legs limp. You get the picture. I had a pretty damaged thing interview going and i taped it and he was really on top of it and i thought my questions were cogent decline and then also there's or sunday morning nine o'clock and we're we're in this middle class. Neighborhood pat pasadena and we went both went to the front door. We opened the door and right at the front of the right at the door. It was this little black girl. Her first kim is coal black and white like a prom dress. She's probably ten. She's at her sunday best and pure white and our eyes were rolled back up in her head because she was blind and her cue when the door opens to say christ died for your sins you know you how 'bout she was a jehovah's witness and launch into her speech to save you jack so she couldn't see joel because she's blind. Though the the two women and another little girl were behind there and they were cited you could see but he of course after the door this crucifix keep in mind with this family family isn't saying they're not seeing the pictures by this artist that would fill their nightmares for the rest of their living days the artist standing before them mm-hmm has photograph sideshow freaks amputees hermaphrodites hermaphrodite amputees as the bondage on on on sunday morning nine o'clock in this little neighborhood so of course the girl would beautiful little girl just speech and the other the other three step step three steps back. We've just arrived at the home of the antichrist's. Gonna burn in hell right here in this driveway. The little girl's family has has now worked their way down the walk sacrificing their young blind child to the devil and as they left her there there on her own she she goes on she goes on aware that her family has abandoned her and joel continues to listen politely the little girl continue to share the good news this she was doing the whole thing he listened the whole thing we bought each of us bought a watch tower and then they left and i thought to myself you know who would think to take their camera camera and to the door opened up i didn't he was going to wear the mask but and then that same day i took pictures of him wearing the mask. No as i have taken official wildly dr is over the years but yeah that was that was that interview now but the worst part of that back and finally copy i copy of it or anything look. This is a great conversation coming up with david fahey but honestly for me getting the here <music> this story confirmed in person all these years later it was worth the whole damn tree then aside david's portraits and interviews some of the most it was notable. Photographers of our times is an amazing body of work not to mention an important contribution to art history but then as far are from david's only significant contribution as an art dealer. David fahey was one of the very few knew that the works of the twentieth century contemporary worries tigers would prove time to be as important art history and as valuable to collectors as any other fine art works by a._m. Yards now fourth decade. His gallery has arrived at a time. Were the vision of the future has been realized due in no small way. Hey to his ongoing <unk> rating showcasing of iconic photographers david himself did not come to this as an art dealer or even as a fan but rather as a photographer as we started to talk in his office and the gallery he shared some of his early beginnings with me including a story about out buying a camera while on leave when he was in the army in vietnam he bought this camera to document his own personal experiences fighting in that war one of those photos even made its way onto the pages of the new york times as a feature ramage prior prior to that in the sixties i was i like to play music and so i went to all of the clubs <hes> jazz rock clubs and i photographed these clubs for the sole purpose of hearing the music for free. That's kind of how i got involved the tar affi and then when i came back from vietnam i i went back to college and i decided to get a degree in communications with an emphasis in photography.

"Anderson with cloud corner it's the title track of her new album and a live performance here in the studio Marie so welcome to the program thanks thanks for having me really like this record a lot that song in particular reminds me of some of the music of the late John Fahey was was he kind of a did you feel a kindred spirit when you listen to his music to be honest I don't I get asked a lot and the best that I can come up with is that perhaps John Fahey and I listen to a lot of the same records that's kind of where I was going with this because you know people peg him as a folk guitarist to add but he was a guy who's deeply into twentieth century classical music in Tibetan an Indian music and you know listen to all manner of of things and it seems like you've you've kind of taken that that ball and run with it as well I don't really listen to guitar players that often you know I find more inspiration and other another sounds like listen to a lot of music with an ear for the piano and the drums and if I listen to guitar players it's usually west African or Ethiopian guitar players more inspired by that so they're also kind of elements of of drone music yeah in several of the tracks on on cloud corner which you know that can come from non western sources or that you know that can be a very kind of Allah cart experimental western thing as well drawn for me also comes from the natural world you know if if at any point in your day you're like oh it's quiet and if you shut your eyes you'll hear a highway you'll hear a plane you'll hear something you know it's it's almost never quiet and I think we live our lives accompanied by an invisible drone yeah so in some ways I I think there's there's that in my music or are you familiar with lamonte young yeah yeah okay yeah I should visit that hacia over the dream house yeah in New York yeah so for folks who warned aware Lamont is considered to be sort of the founder of the minimalist music movement but he claims that one of his formative experiences growing up was listening to the sound of the wind blowing through the **** of the log cabin in his childhood home in Idaho and then the other big inspiration is the sixty cycle drone of of American electricity come along with the vacuum cleaner transaction and there was this like high sound and I would just like find my voice like and and like sort of moans of action but you know drone for all that it sounds like well it's just one known as goes on and on and on it so it is like a universe in there if you do exactly what you just said try and find your way into it yeah so is that does that mean that you're kind of naturally drawn to open tunings on the guitar we can have those sustained ringing sounds I flew in mostly open de is sometimes open the minor for a number of reasons and one of them is to have to to have strings that are allowed to ring out and that I can play against that ringing and create sort of the third voice that good harmony create so that is a big reason that I use open tunings and the other reason is that I I was trained classically and like have a you know my background in in the tire makes me almost I don't know how to say it but with standard tuning it's very difficult for me to find my way out of what I already think I know and so I approached open tunings as a way of on learning and re learning the instrument at this point I've been playing when I play with other people I play in standard because it's a shared language right but my sort of internal guitar language is just purely translated into mostly open the this for the last decade or so now when you say you're classically trained you mean as a guitarist Yeller classical guitar yeah so classical guitar folk music even some of the non western guitarists that you probably like these are all kind of acoustic but you largely play electric walk through sustain is the biggest reason like what we were just talking about like notes ringing in the air you know and another reason is our one thing I love to do is play very lightly but have it be very loud and I think they're the tonalities that come out of the instrument when you do that our incredible there's a real shimmering that can happen when you allow sort of the elect strict guitar in the amp to do that work for you it's counter intuitive you know you think you turn it up and play hard but if you turn up in place play lately you get this whole other palette that is beautiful now I ask you before with the you were familiar with will want young and I guess I kind of wasn't too surprised when you said yes because the piece you're going to play for us next call pulse has it seems kind of echoes of that minimalist yeah this one is the most sort of overtly you know it's not in not into to minimalism I was singing Steve Reich on this one he does this real nice like they kind of push pull push pull push pull and I'm also thinking about you know like all of the sort of schmaltzy movie violin string sections that go read thanks I tried to make that and then the other this this this is just me being a super technical merit the other thing I was hoping to achieve in this piece was to get my phone to play in six which is hard for a guitar player and guitar players out there two and four seem to be the default setting this this is just yeah kind of taking taking minimalism and then applying this to technical challenges yeah let's let's hear another piece for it so it's on the record called cloud corner the latest from a recent Anderson but here's another live performance that once again is Marie Sir Anderson playing a tune called pulse which you'll find on her most recent album called cloud corner how much of this music Marissa is if any improvised I mean it once you write a piece is it the same repeatable experience night after night some so the records are almost entirely improvised I think I came into recording cloud corner with one song that it was like this is a song and here's how it goes everything else everything else is completely improvised somethings are first takes other things are like motifs that I work and work and work until a peace builds itself out of them and then taking songs from the record on to the stages of process that I don't enjoy it it's the hardest part because what works on a record or whatever you know what you want from a listening experience of could be quite different then what works on stage and so the check the pieces change a bit to some of them only work exactly how they are on the record in other ones only work if I'm just really present with them night after night and those usually turn out to be my favorite I'm not a super fan of just memorizing and playing so there's this when I play live I tend to discard the songs that are no longer teaching me anything I have no more I feel like there's no more left for me to explore our find or learn and so every night I am finding like a new inner voicing our new rhythmic subtlety or a new like melody you know to wrap around although a couple of years ago you you did an album of traditional in public domain songs through which you know talk about songs that you would think there's nothing left to learn here you you were able to mine those furs some Klay kind of startling and an unusual versions yeah so that I mean it it's it seems like it if it's a good song is always something else you can squeeze out of it I agree with you sometimes you just need to take a break from you know sometimes it's like a friend that you've just do love you friend but you've just spend that much time with them and there's like in a couple weeks so with this with this album cloud corner coming into the studio with just one song kind of ready to go which of the pieces was the the kind of fully fleshed out thing that you went into the sample you the one you're gonna do now yeah where is this place it's in Spain on the coast about an hour out of Barcelona and I was playing out there a few years ago two thousand fifteen I think and I have experience inspired the song okay the full name is son Phil you degree shoals the name of this town it's on the Mediterranean yeah on the eastern seaboard of Spain and your play force yeah that this this necessitates another change of tuning or not you've already done where is Anderson is here with us use another track from her record plowed corner.

Diversity of our doctors benefits our nation

"This is Dr Michael Wilks where they second opinion in the early years of American medicine medical school classes were predominantly white Christian men, slowly schools, accepted more women, and then they further diversified while. Today's medical schools are far more diverse than they had been they still don't come close to reflecting the communities. They serve diversity is crucial to addressing the severe disparities in health care, for example, where I live the life expectancy is nearly fifteen years greater in one community. Then it is in the bordering next community healthcare disparities in the two communities include diabetes, and heart disease and cancer, but also profound differences in educational level, homelessness and substance abuse. When doctors have no connection with underserved communities those communities suffer there. Are places in Los Angeles County with the doctor patient ratio is amongst the highest in the world and then not a plane ride away. But a short city bus trip away, our communities that have doctor patient ratios that are similar to poor developing nations in other continents. This is a problem for Arkham unity when people who are poor or black or uneducated have poor health care than others. We need doctors who understand the health issues in these underserved communities now, certainly healthcare experts from outside of these communities can work to understand, but it is also important that these communities trust and can relate to their healthcare providers. Studies show that health in black communities increase when these communities have black doctors and satisfaction with their healthcare. Also increase. His this week a state medical school in Texas called Texas Tech announced that they would no longer use race to admit medical school applicants it's interesting that the community around Texas Tech is heavily Latino, but Latinos are greatly underrepresented in their medical school across the country. We have made only tiny positive changes in diversity in medical school classes, and if we can't use race, these small strides may disappear. The number of people of color, enrolled, UC medical schools, significantly declined by about one third after an affirmative action ban went into effect in the late nineteen nineties not long ago. The conventional teaching was that applicants with the highest grades or the highest test scores would make the best doctors. Will it turns out that past education is? Portent, but doctoring is so much more than answering a bunch of multiple choice questions correctly. There are lots of experts who claim that we need more doctors in this country. I'm not so sure we need more doctors. But we definitely need different doctors who work in different places with different communities, diversifying our health care workforce is crucial to the health of our nation.

Abigail Disney calls out Disney CEO Robert Iger's astounding pay

KCRW's Hollywood Breakdown

Abigail Disney calls out Disney CEO Robert Iger's astounding pay

"I'm Kim masters, and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt Bellany of the Hollywood reporter, and Matt I think some people at the Walt Disney company in the upper echelons or having a breakdown Abigail Disney whose grandfather was Walt Disney's brother ROY has written an editorial following some earlier tweets calling out Disney CEO and chairman Bob Iger, four his astounding pay. He made sixty five million dollars in two thousand eighteen she points out that's one thousand four hundred and twenty four times the median pay of Disney worker, not the bottom rung the median pay. And you know, she is making a point that that is a bad, look, right, and immediacy ios have famously been paid much higher than their peers in the last couple of decades for many years, Leslie Moonves at CBS was the highest paid CEO corporate America this year. I'm betting David zaslov at discovery will likely be the highest paid CEO in America despite their stock. Doc, not doing so hot lately, but Disney is different. And it is a public facing company. Unlike any other has a relationship with people who go to the parks who see the movies who have a strong affinity for the brand. So the fact that Bob Eiger is making so much more money than the rank and file at Disney. Does mean something in does resonate. And we're seeing that in the media right now. Yeah, it's a Sarah symbol of income inequality. I'm old enough to remember. When begets father ROY who was waltz nephew led an insurrection against management at Disney and ended up ousting Michael Eisner, and you'd never seen anything like the magic of Disney name in that context. Mom and pop shareholders old people young people came to this shareholder meeting because they were fed up. Roy Disney had made the argument that you know, Michael Eisner had wreck the Disney magic. Now. This kind of a dark twist Disney hasn't really responded to this and Abigail. Disney tweeted yesterday. That she was getting some signals that Disney was looking for dirt on her. And I will note that Disney in the past banned the LA times for a period of time for reporting on its tax arrangements with Anaheim, which was a wild overreaction and would not stand. They came after the Hollywood reporter when we reported on John Lasseter claiming that we had four were forced to publish a correction, which did not happen as we pointed out in our story. This tends to be a little a little reactive in these situations. And they've put out some stats that show that they have raised the minimum wage at the parks, and they're doing things to lift up some of the lower level employees. But the point that Abigail Disney is making is that it's not just idir if the upper echelon executives at Disney were to forego some of their extremely high bonuses they could provide significantly meaningful compensation for the lower level at the company, and they just benefited from this. Massive tax decrease that the Trump administration past and instead of giving employees a one time bonus, which they did they could have raised wages. Yes.

Changing prescribers' behaviors to stop prescribing drugs that dont work.

"Not all drugs are created equal and majority of drugs on the market offer patients little or no benefit while costing significant amounts of money. This is Dr Michael Wilks, where they second opinion over prescribing medications, particularly opioids has finally caught America's attention aside. From opioids though, there is a profound problem of over prescribing across a multiple of class of drugs, including psychiatric medicines antibiotics muscle, relaxants, cough, medicines cholesterol, medicines and much more the dry for doctors to prescribe more and more medications is driven primarily by Farmaceutica companies with messages directed at physicians and other prescribers, but also to the public through direct to consumer advertisements physicians. Learn about new medications primarily from pharmaceutical sales people or by attending training sessions. That are often funded by drug companies and drug companies have become sneakier. They now monitor pharmacy records and social media to see who uses and who does not use their particular drugs, then they target under prescribers to change their behaviors these days. There is good evidence about what drugs actually work, and what drugs don't, but there is still a large gap between the evidence. And getting that information out too, busy prescribers so organizations have tried different ways to change prescribing behaviors one approach has been to use behavioral economics drug companies, but also hospitals insurance companies and medical groups have studied ways to nudge doctors toward making decisions that play to their interests usually to make them more money. These Dr nudges include such tried and true techniques. Putting reminder posters in. Dr work areas, sending letters to doctors who don't prescribe a particular drug and telling them that they're out of sync with their peers or programming doctors work computers to show a desire drug, I and labeling them as the recommended choice. We'll it turns out that psychologically, very few of us want to be outliers. In other words, we don't want to be out of step with our peers or in conflict with officer recommendations a recent study compared three ways to change prescribers behaviors a letter comparing a doctor with their peers a message to the doctor in the computer suggesting an alternative drug or a requirement that the doctor must enter a reason why she wants to prescribe a particular drug in the short term the first two approaches worked will both reduced inappropriate. Prescribing by twenty percent, another study looked at reducing the overprescribe. Robbing of dangerous psychiatric medicines by sending the doctors a letter telling them they were prescribing to many of the dangerous pills, and that they were now being monitored. This also worked in fact, what behavioral economics suggests is that anytime prescribers are told they're being watched either by government or their employers. They're prescribing behaviors change, but we need to be careful what we wish for what may be good for the company or the hospital may not always align with what is best for the patient.

The impact of hearing loss

"Rudy is a seventy two year old retired electrocution he and his wife live alone in a small house over the past couple of years Rudy has become more isolated. He no longer sees his friends goes to the movies or watches TV. In fact, he met many of the diagnostic criteria of depression. This is Dr Michael Wilks with a second opinion in the exam room was I turned to reach for my stethoscope on the nearby counter. I kept talking to Rudi I realized though he couldn't hear me when I wasn't facing him. I turned back in asteroid if he'd noticed any trouble with his hearing reluctantly, he said he had but had ignored the problem because it made him feel old and he didn't want to wear a hearing aid. I tried to suggest that he might seem older without hearing eight people might think he was ignoring them or not paying attention. It was Helen Keller who was blind and deaf. Who once said that blindness separates people from things deftness separates people from people for people over the age of sixty forty percent of a hearing loss that affects the quality of their life. Hearing loss has a more profound effect on the quality of life, then diabetes, heart disease or thrice hearing aids can be life, saving not only extending the length of life. But also the quality of life. A recent study in JAMA showed that if people have an uncorrected hearing loss. There is a forty percent higher risk of depression. Also for people with a hearing loss healthcare costs or forty six percent higher. They have forty percent more hospitals ations, and they stay on average two days longer compared to those without a hearing loss. Unfortunately, hearing aids are will outside the reach of many Americans most people. Wait seven to ten years before they get evaluated for a hearing aid. And only thirty percent of people who could benefit from a hearing aid will ever get one a hearing aid cost between two thousand and four thousand dollars per year. And they're not covered by Medicare or many private insurances. Now, you might wonder why Medicare the insurance for older Americans wouldn't cover hearing aids will Medicare's forbidden from covering hearing aids. Because in one thousand nine hundred sixty five legislators considered hearing loss normal part of aging, and according to the thinking at the time, why would an insurance intended for diseases cover something that was normal. Well, the sales of hearing aids which require prescriptions have been enormously profitable for manufacturers. But as with other disruptive technologies the world is changing fast over the. The counter hearing aids are now available at a fraction of the cost and many are linked to smartphones. That also offer transcription and other services. It also seems that everyone these days has earphone sticking out of their ears and facing cool. So perhaps the stigma is also changing well Rudy ended up getting one hearing aid. That's all he could afford. According to both Rudy and his wife his life has changed radically for the better. He's back to socializing watching TV at normal volumes and going to the movies as for me. I am now far more careful to ask everyone. Whether they've had any trouble with hearing. This is Dr Michael Wilks with a second opinion this season unless notes from KCRW how does it feel to be like a girl plane in instrument of this? Well, how's it feel to be a man asking simple questions? I mean what? Had I said, no to this invitation from John Fahey, I would have for the rest of my life wondered what I had missed.

"fahey" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM

"Ago, they had a case out of Pennsylvania. It was a challenge to redistricting plan there. And the justices were as they often are deeply divided the courts more conservative justices at the time for of them said no way, we need to stay out of this partisan. Gerrymandering business. You can't come up with a workable standard to determine whether something is a partisan gerrymander the courts, four more liberal justices at the time said courts can absolutely review these claims of partisan gerrymandering and the center at the time as he wasn't very recently with Justice, Anthony Kennedy, and he said, I don't wanna close the door on the passability that we could find a workable standard someday. But I'm gonna vote with the more conservative justices in this case and throw it out. So what's the argument that the conservatives make for the court not getting in and that the liberals make for the court setting the standard? There are a couple of different arguments at the courts make for not getting involved. One is that there isn't a workable standard that whatever standard. You're going to come up with is going to be what the chief Justice called sociological gobbledegook. I can only describe a sociological gobbledygook another argument is that it really is going to hurt that the. The institutional reputation of the courts if they start getting involved in these partisan gerrymandering claims that the public is going to see it as the supreme court decided for the Democrats for the Republicans. And then another argument that the conservative justices have made is that there are other ways to take care of it, most notably the independent redistricting commissions that some states have set up these neutral redistricting commissions made up of a certain number of Democrats certain number of Republicans a couple of independence to try to take the partisanship out of districting sort of an interesting side note on that argument is that the supreme court maybe four or five years ago actually had a case it was a challenge to eras independent redistricting commission in which the supreme court upheld eras redistricting commission rejected the challenge to it. But that was it self. A five four vote. So I think that the liberal justices in particular, don't necessarily regard that as something you want to rest your hat on from what you saw in the most recent arguments in front of the supreme court regarding North Carolina and Maryland maps, do you see that the court is just as reluctant to get involved in making decisions of gerrymandering as they were in previous cases. I think there was less sort of hand wringing about how difficult this is. There was also very little discussion of whether or not the challenges in this case have a legal right to sue. So I don't necessarily see any sort of off ramp that seems like this might really be that set of cases in which they decide once and for all whether they're going to get involved in partisan. Mandarin cases. It's still not really clear what they're going to do Justice. Anthony Kennedy seemed like he was the swing vote and till he retired just as Brad Kavanagh. No one really had any sense of where he was he asked questions it seemed to go in both directions. It seems like whatever happens. The justices are going to be deeply divided. But it does seem like they're going to resolve this issue. Why the this time so resulting it one way or the other? They could say the courts have no role in this that could definitely be one of the ways they could resolve these cases or say, these are the standards that should be used. And if they're not then they will come before us, and we will determine whether or not they met those standards. That's right and one of the problems that they face, and it's something that just indicate in his one of the more strategic justices in her questions or like, you -ment was trying to address is the prospect. Which all of them clearly dislike that they will become a sort of redistricting court one of the unusual things about redistricting cases is that if you file a redistricting case they start out in a three judge district court, and then the loser can appeal directly to the US supreme court. You skip the federal court of appeals, and you have a moral less mandatory right to appeal to the supreme court. It's not a discretionary appeal the way almost all other supreme court cases are so there are a couple of things about partisan gerrymandering that I think all of the justices can agree on which is that they do all think it's a bad thing. Even if they can't necessarily agree on what to do about it. And they all are all horrified by the idea of having a regular set of partisan gerrymandering cases, come before them every time that there's new every data. Yes. And we're still dealing with. The last twenty nineteen we're still dealing with the last round of of cases from the twenty ten cents and in a couple of weeks the courts going to hear or arguments about the twenty twenty cents and they're gonna conduct twenty twenty cents us and could kick off another round of redistricting cases. Right. So it just will never end an endless cycle and endless ten year cycle. Yes. Amy, how thank you so much for coming in and joining us. Thanks for having me was good to talk to. You anyhow is the co founder of Scotus blog. Wanted to close the show with Katie Fahey? She's the Michigan woman who we heard at the top of the show. She had no prior political experience but managed to win a hard-fought campaign to put the power of redistricting into the hands of an independent commission here. She is speaking on election night twenty teen. This is a moment. But a movement that people are country are sick of this. And if we don't come and say that enough is enough and nothing's going to change, but we have through that you can keep your integrity, you can make it. So that you can invite anyone to the table you can operate a campaign and a transparent way where we actually trust the people of our states to make decisions and up a beautiful result that unites people in is about to unite millions of people that you showed up in that. You're not matter that you signatures and stood in the rain and the cold and the heat all mattered for generations of people your sacrifices had changed our constitution. The Michigan state constitution opens with all political power is inherent in the people. We are those people. This is our power. Let's go have an independent citizens redistricting commission that restores faith in democracy. Her story reminds us of the power everyday people have in our political process. But here's the thing..
