"Morning. Welcome back to the show. And the Donna and Steve show on my talk one of 71 everything entertainment. I'm gonna valentine that is Steve Patterson, producer I am drawn to is also with us. Oh, we're buddy. Studies have shown that memories have shown that the micro several long term studies have shown they've studied the study's scientific studies have shown and here with their findings. Study buddies the president, couple, Donna and Steve Question is pretty simple. It's pretty a day later. Do you sit in the same seat? Every night. Dinner. Um That's a tough question for me to answer because they don't really sit at the table. I said it that counter or sit at the counter in my living room. I just had this conversation with my dad about how dining room tables cause I just got offered a dining room table from my aunt and I was like, I just don't have a lot of room for it. Beautiful table. I don't have room for it. My dad said a lot of people don't Heated dining room tables now because of like islands and countertops, like people sit at their counter tops. Yep. But Steve, do you sit? You guys have a family arrangement the same Every time it rotates Lou and I will rotate opposite heads of the table. Oh, I don't know why. We will, but by and large The kids seem to move around quite a bit. When I was a kid, we had seats, right? Always always the same seat. I was always just to the right of my mother. My mom was just to the right of my father, the head of the table Then Janey was on the other side of him. And then I believe Got was over there and then Josh was the other end of the table. It's It's funny 68% of people. Sit in the same chair every single night, Same seat. Same space every night for dinner. 11%. Only 11% of people say that they change up their seat and 19% say they either don't have a table, Donna. Or don't eat at the table rather or quote. I always eat alone. Now I do use the table when I have company. Sure. When I friends over, that's where we'll go and eat and play games and all that. But You know, I mean, I was doing my taxes at the dining room table the other day, because I just want to justify having a dining room table. Um, you know, the only thing I would change in our dining room situation. You have to work with whatever space you have. Only thing I would change is if I had the appropriate space for it. I would have a circular table. The circular tables are the best tables because each best for conversation. Yes, thieves. There's no turning. There's no turning, because when you're sitting next to someone at dinner You don't want to turn to that person. That person, whoever is to my immediate left or right. Like if I'm in a dinner with friends there who I am not going to talk to the most right. I want to talk to the person that people across from me. Notice Circle. There is no head of the table. I love it. No interesting. I went and had, like I told you guys had dinner at my family. My parents house last night we sat down and I sat in the same spot. And I sat in 25 years ago or 30 now 35 years ago or whatever it was, Yeah, my mom and dad said the same one and Lily said, because I don't have any siblings. So Lily said What would have been if I had a brother sisters? Probably spot but we all sat in our same spots. 30 years later. We're doing the same thing. God forbid you should sit, Dad. See, it would be like to get out of my chair. I think We were very much had that system growing up, and then I think back to my mom's generation at my grandparent's house. If we had dinner over there, my grandma would always be in the same seat. Of course, my grandfather always in the same seat at the head of the table. And there was always never never a meal without white bread and butter. Such true. What happened to that I don't know. Over comes out, says We love bread. Everybody loves spread, and we have done away with Any kind of like it didn't matter what the dinner was. If it was Tuesday night, there was white bread and butter breaking bread, absolutely breaking bread. That's he used to always say as well. The same prayer weed every night. We do so it wasn't you do the same prayer and we did the same prayer that we always did yesterday. And we still do the same for 30 and my family. When we get together with my It was the same prayer at my grandma's house and whoever's house where if we were on my aunts and my uncles are our house for whatever holiday it was the same prayer, whole family. Whose parents made them say the entire rosary before you got Is that long yet Seen a rosary? It's long Each little bead is a prayer. Oh, my God. So the food is just getting cold. You gotta start like an hour in advance. I think I think about my grandfather's was four lines, so that was nice and efficient. But like, thank you. It was come, Lord Jesus. Be our guest and bless this food which thou has provided for us. Amen. Then I remember is kids that reversing a prayer as a kid? We saying to the tune of Fred Roggin, aka we saying, God, our father, we would sing it now that stopped, Probably once. I don't know the youngest hit Maybe eight or nine. But we would routinely sing. And then the question is. What are you doing? Are you holding hands? He just holding hands. You're folding hands. You holding hands? Definitely not holding hands. Never held hands. No, that's weird. I don't even wanna. I don't wanna hold it like you feel like an idiot. But I guess I see why. Because, like if a lot of people do that our father before you eat just so they are father. And if you're a Catholic and mass, you're holding hands when you do the our father free pandemic. So maybe the idea is there. I think there a few times there for big family events We might have, for the most part fingers in hands. You know, there was the used to do the passing of the piece. You know, Um You know, it's kind of half time of like an Episcopal service or a Catholic service Half two in pre pandemic. Yeah, you would. There were some women in my mom's church that I grew up going to and when we would go back for Christmas. I just knew this person's coming in, and I'm going to get kissed right on my lips. I just know it. That's okay. And I know it's coming. You can't do that now. Whoa! Times have changed. Happy. Um Wells fought everybody. We looked into our childhoods. That was exciting. Now we're gonna look to our financial futures. It's a money Monday. This one has nothing to do.

"Along with? L ATV low. I con I. Was GonNa say Legend Fred Rogin filling in for Chris. We saw it if you're just joining the program Chris and his wife celebrating twenty five years of marriage. It's their anniversary night. And Fred. I hope you're not going to be another. One of these guys who are GonNa fall for what's going on in baseball and tell me you're gonNA be chicken. Little that disguise fallen. Please don't tell me you think the sky's falling. Well I, think disguise falling. Figured that I know. Rob Baseball I love baseball, and it's very annoying me watching. What's going on the NBA? Got To figure it out. They're coming back. Hockey got it figured out. They're coming back. This is a time where this country needs. They're sports. They do not want to hear people complaining. About all right, how about one hundred and forty four games? No forty games no fifty games. Worrying about the money I understand it's very difficult very difficult in baseball, because of the contentious nature of the players, association the Union and the owners, but this is not what people want now. They want results. They don't care about the squabbling. Owners have painted the players into a very bad spot. I do. But. They don't want that rob. What they want now is their game. They want their baseball the NBA. The NFL they are more popular than baseball, which may be the best game of all, and I think they need to figure it out and get it together because nobody wants to hear this winding back and forth. It just negotiations. We've had twenty six years of labor, peace and baseball in unprecedented amount of time. And, in this case, here's where you missed the mark. The NFL, the NFL hasn't had to deal with because you're out of season. The NBA NHL their seasons, season's already underway. They already got their money. There was no debate about how much they were going to get paid. NBA players have played sixty five percent of sixty five games on eighty two. That's why there's no squabbling. They got paid their money. Not play they going to go to the play offs and they're not there. No salaries paid during the play offs. That's why Fred there's no debate or argument about it. Those players got paid. This is a totally different situation because you're season never got started. No, so they have to figure it out, Fred. They gotTA figure it out. Just can't pay them A. Whatever they were GONNA make. Look they sat down? They figured out at the beginning. We'll give you a pro rated amount fine. No now we don't have fans. We're going to change the game again, Robert. I'm saying to you. Is this and you're a member of the baseball? Writers of America, so you know the sport inside and out the back of your hand you a podcast about baseball and soccer. Right that being said no one cares right now. Do these people understand? The country is in the middle, not only of a pandemic but racial unrest. No one cares right now. What your problems are and I believe and I think you'll disagree. I think the I. Think the players got him. And, I think with the next collective bargaining agreement coming up this time for the players to draw a line in the sand, because those owners on those franchises, and there were billions of dollars that asset not only will will not appreciate. It will depreciate if there are no players to play. This is the moment right here as you would say and right now. This is the moment for the players to go no. No. Because I'll tell you. As all small business owners in America No. This has been terrible terrible for business. People have lost their homes. People have been forced to move out of their apartments. You, know you WANNA. Play this game. We'll play it right back. No, we're not playing. It's GonNa hurt. It's GonNa hurt the players. A bit I was GonNa say for. Don't think about don't forget if you're lucky bets and those guys who were hoping for four hundred million dollar contract. You could forget that for it. If there's no baseball, we go eighteen months without baseball. It'll permanently damage the game right. I couldn't even be mad at people who decides that? They don't want to be bothered anymore. I love the game you know Fred I go to the Games even when I'm. I'm not working I baseball, but there's no way that they are not going to play a season in come together. It's negotiations. They want to save face. The Union doesn't feel like it rolled over for owners and the owners want to hold on I. Get all that and we'll get into to more of that later on, but I do believe we will have baseball, because anything less will damage both sides and the game forever so I do not believe will not have baseball. Twenty twenty, and hopefully in July all right, it is the couple. On a worship Wednesday, Rob Parker and Fred Roggin for Chris Broussard right here.

"Thank you for your meal. Yes, a native great to have you one consider where we are in the country and what's going on and they? I I just want you to respond to. The drew brees comments. He's got a lot of pushback. People just feel like you know it's. It's the same smokescreen narrative about the flag and about kneeling. What did you think of his comments? Well you know I mean I. I grew drew, drew brees. A good guy trees, a good person. JEWELRIES has done a lot for the community a lot for the city New Orleans. Great respect to the military, and has a great respect for you know for for his teammates as far as I know, right I mean and said. In in this time, especially as a as a white man. We come to a point where you know more and more. And now more than ever, we really need to just to just listen you know and when somebody asks us a question like that and and maybe. Hoping or exciting to get us out there you know expecting to get a sound bite or something to to be able to news and put out on the airwaves, elicit responses and continues to divide us like the media often does no offence You know that that was. That was an opportunity to to maybe go another way with it, but. You know it's the way he feels. I respect his feelings on that and I understand that a lot of people that serve in the military, the feel, the same way but you know it also hurt a lot of people and also upset a lot of people, and it seemed a bit tone deaf to a lot of people considering everything. That's going on this this week. Especially you know and and to me. At the end of the day being. New protesting during the national anthem during that song during that time, was always about. How how much of a response we would get people get. seen that happen at that moment. You know less about the song itself. less about not about the military. You know because for me I get it I. Stand with pride every time. I hear that song man and I feel the same way drew is talking about I feel those same things, but not everybody feels that not everybody feels that, and it's not. It's not their responsibility to just feel that because you know. We were in the military and we this. This country's so everybody needs to go that think of respect. They don't feel like they count the same way I would never want somebody standing putting their hand on heart, saluting the flag out of obligation. You know that's not the kind of country I wanNA live in. That's not what I thought for. I want people to feel the same way that I do. They don't gotta fight until they do. Need with US rob, Parker and Fred Roggin for Chris Russo Today on the couple of Fox sports radio. Nate, but here's the problem and I think you just summed it up. Things become so confused and convoluted. When people don't stay on point, I mean this is a major issue. This country's dealing with right now. And there's no unseen. What was seen and this is a time for people to be aware, and even a comment like drew brees made perhaps by pointing that out. He becomes more wear because nate. That's been the problem. People just aren't aware. They have not walked in someone else's shoes. Yeah. No, you're absolutely right with. It, you know a lot of things that are said and even a Lotta honestly. Even a lot of the and I'm one of these people that you know. I posted posted A. Black screen on my social media yesterday and I know drew did too and I know a lot of people. And I think a lot of people did that out of obligation. You know what I mean and did that a feeling like the sense of like well. I did something now I'm you know I I did my part. I'm supporting the cars and it's like. Do you even really know what's happening you why? This is happening beyond just? Seen this last week you know I'm beyond just you know those names that that are that are commonly used from the George. Slow to the Trayvon Martin's to the tender blends to Emmett till to all these dry. It's so much more than that so much more notches. Police brutality so much more than that than that and I'm trying to learn as much as I. can you know I have a long? Time to learn to I absolutely not a subject matter expert in any way. They. Do you feel like you know? Column was sitting, and if people remember how singly started, he had sat on the bench during the national at for couple of games until Steve Weisser reporter from the NFL network noticed him, and said Hey, what are you doing and that's how we found out about the police brutality protests, and then you Tokala. It would be better. Better for him to kneel rather than sit, and when you see all this pushback from people, you're a veteran. You gave him some advice. He followed your advice because he thought he's not here to disrespect the military and he's listening to a military man. What do you think about people who push back on him despite him listening to a guy from the military? Yeah well I think it's important to people to understand that calling me south to me. I call and called me and asked if I would meet with a massive I. Would you know have a conversation with him? Wanting to hear what I thought what I felt and you know. He wanted to make sure that he wasn't offended people in the military and told him. Call no matter what you do, you're GONNA send people. You can't do anything in this world without without offending people. You Never GonNa. Please everybody. There's just there's just no way. He knew that I think he knew that, but I said no matter what you know, even if you stay with your hand on your heart now, people are GonNa be. Offended that. Are Proud of what you're doing and and speaking out on are going to say well. How come you're coming? You're talking. You're tail now and and moving away from it so. We sat down. We talked we had you know pretty in depth conversation about everything going on his feelings of my feelings and his experiences and my experiences in through that conversation He asked me if there was another way besides sitting on the bench that I thought he could protest. It wouldn't offend people in the military like I said I said there's. No Way, you won't offend some people but I think. If you if you released alongside your teammates, that would be a big step, and the only way I can see doing that with outstanding because you committed to. Not Standing, people understand that. The only other way I could see you doing that. Be taken a knee and I don't see disrespectful I don't speak for the military I'll speak for anybody but myself but I think it would be harder for people to find that disrespectful because people take need a prey to propose to their wives It's just never been a symbol of disrespect to my knowledge. And he agreed, and he said that would be more powerful, and that's when he did that very same night on the field in San Diego. What did you think or Whoa? How did you feel? When? You saw the backlash he received. I knew he would receive it. I received it to not nearly at the Level I'm sure Colin did, but I definitely see the two. People I served with I was called various things a disgrace to the green beret. you know even today I had somebody. We chat from my unit that. Upset that I use the special forces motto, sometimes when I when I write things when I say things and Tomato is day oppressively bear, which means to free the oppressed. And they're upset about that like you. Don't speak for a unit, so I get it. And I'm sorry I apologize to everybody now. I'm not intending to hurt anybody anyway. but I I was surprised at the backlash now. Now three and a half later and just works social media is and what it does to people what it does to our country. I'm not surprised at all in way less surprising now because it just. Leads to so much it's. It's tough now naked. We just can't we acknowledge. As we saw. The murder of George Floyd at the hands of police on the streets of Minneapolis..

It was doctor lawyer failure when you decided to what was going to be. I was going to be an attorney. That's absolutely right and the problem was as I was going through school. ooh. My mom always insists that greats I mean that's the whole so I came from and I simply get tired of school. I mean I had won a National Boys Club Award. I deplore your scholarship paid to college. I'm not going to mention the name because people go. Why didn't you take it and I just got sick. I got sick or not burned out out out of going to school so what six months to a junior college and I was going to be an attorney an NBA referee a major league umpire and and I went to the Mass Communications Program at Phoenix College JC in Phoenix and I was there six months and I said you know what I'm ready to get a job so I started. I have six months of junior college that that is my formal education and I often started and radio in Globe Arizona. And where did you passion for sports. Come from was playing or watching or both both growing up grew up born in Detroit then moved to Phoenix. My Dad was a huge sports. Fan didn't realize at the time also betting on the Games that makes you a big fan yeah so he was a huge fan of we're big lions tigers. Red Wings Pistons and so I would go to the lion's games with them and we'd go see the Tigers and the Pistons and he was a huge redwings fan huge right wing. Fan and I developed a love for sports so then I started competing if you can call it that when I was a kid we moved to Arizona and I continued to play a but I was always an enormous sports fan so I knew that was something I wanted to get involved with somehow some way. I wanted to be involved in sports. It was just what the vehicle was going to. We got there and you have obviously voice for TV and radio. You have have a face for radio radio. Thanks for radio. Voice Choice 'cause I. I will tell you even at a young age because I have a deeper voice. People's Davies should get into announcing and broadcasting. You have a great voice for that but you have a face for radio. Stick to the podcasting really though what age did someone tell you that that is a profession that you may have great career career in or no one ever told me that and my voice related in change. I got here when I was twenty. Three and my boys not changed yet. So this really happened to me when I got to be in my late twenties early thirties that it kind of dropped a few octaves because prior to that it was much higher and I just think it was with age voice just dropped. It always had residents but it wasn't this low. This is a great voice. Now from junior college went out and started making the money and I always tell people. Don't your point of entry. You're looking for experience and it wasn't as if you're going to the biggest network you took a job in Globe Arizona right. I got paid four hundred dollars a month. I was a top forty disc jockey but in the process I also was allowed to do the highschool play-by-play knife I saw the Miami vandals and Globe Tigers so part of the deal was I had to be on every night as a top forty disc jockey and you had to sell your own show so you go out and you sell your commercials for bucket spot wow yeah. I wish we rates block. One dollars spot commissioners so you know I started there in all I try to do every day was get better and I had a real real tape recorder behind me. When I was on the radio and for every stop set in every reintroduction I would roll this this recorder and then when the the record started I would listen back in here. What I sounded like every single time. When I got to a point point where I thought okay I was proficient enough to advance. I moved to Yuma Arizona there. I made seven hundred fifty dollars a month and I was the mid a day host but I also got to the play by play of the Cova King High School team so the thing was I wanted to do play by play every stop and in Yuma they had a a TV station and it was cable cable radio and TV so I had been on the radio for a while and watch the TV and back then it was even black and white. They did an colored cameras yet and I went into my said you know I do the radio every day. I'd like you try out to be on TV and the guy looked at me and he goes. Are you crazy AINSI. We don't have tryouts here. You're on really that's how I got on TV last time so for TV. I got paid five dollars a night. Five dollars was the night for TB seven hundred and fifty dollars a month for radio and TV. I really had no training so I was making it up as I went along and they had no graphics throw anything like that so I created graphics used to get pictures out of sports illustrated magazines and I would cut them out and it would say like basketball and I would put it in front of a green green or blue background then I got a camera and shot with the graphic position exactly as it would be over my shoulder and then we started using graphics and that's how I created the graphics that I used so all along the way I learned how to do things but I learned on my own and from there I went to Austin Texas which was the ABC Station Asian and it was funny when I did. I called all of the NBC stations. I could find a certain market range but was tiny and I said I'm looking for a job. You have any opportunities he's and they would tell me no or police end tape and I always thought calling was better than just sending a resume and it take so I called NBC and Austin and they they told me they just hired somebody and I would always ask the same question anybody else looking in the market this ABC station so I call them. They said send the tape. I sent the tape and they said we'll get back to you. It was like four months later they called me and they brought me in and they hired me in Austin and it was great because they shot film in Austin and they said to me you know here. You're going to have to go out and shoot your own. Stop you know how to shoot film writing and I said absolutely uh-huh shoot film but you know what I thought. Other people can do it. How hard can it be a love that so I got there and I took the camera the first night I went out and I it came back and it was out of focus and it was green right and it was shaking and they look at it. They said Oh my God. What what is this. I said well I told you I know how to shoot film but I'm not very good at it. I told you that yeah you're right. We'll give you a photographer so I had a cameraman. I worked there and then opportunity but at NBC in Phoenix where I grew up and went to high school so I talked to them. Guy Calls me goes. Hey do not edit edit videotape. Absolutely of course I know how to edit videotape but I'm not very good head so they hire me in Phoenix and I go and they had to to editing stations back in the day and you know you would take turns and go in and edit your stuff. It took me three and a half hours to edit. Fifteen seconds didn't tape because I had no idea what he's doing so they said well. You backed everybody up. I mean this is unacceptable. You said you could edit tape. I said but I wasn't very good at it. It gave me an editor so every time I just figured you know I was proficient at some things the rest I would just pick up along the way and I was was there and then in one thousand nine hundred eighty the opportunity presented itself here at NBC La and I took that and that was twenty three when I got here unbelievable and through that experience you were covering multiple sports in multiple ways voice video etc yeah what I was trying to back. Then was what is commonplace now. You know I think a mistake that people make or did make for a number of years sports is they were all nuts and bolts die hard very focused. You have to attack if your audience. You have to understand your business you know I always say my business is now media. My assignment is sports so when I tried to do was given the smallest percentage of the TV audience watches for Mobile Sports Research tells us at the smallest percentage of the local TV audience watching for sports. I thought to myself what if I go after the largest percentage of the audience. I'll just do it differently. We'll have fun with it right create parodies. I'll try to do different. Things and bent may may attract that other segment of the audience which fortunately for me dead and that's really how I started things here by going after all the people that didn't didn't really like sports. I'm a huge sports guy. I do talk radio every day but I knew on television that wasn't going to work in a local market so that's why we we created the philosophy we did here. It's so interesting because growing up in the sports business world with the most notable sports agent and you can imagine all the celebrities that we my wife who grew up in San Diego but went to cease on here in La I mentioned to her that I was doing this podcast with you today and she has been with the Eric Dickerson and go who is that really big hall of famers and I told her going to Fred Rogan. Oh we'll get hero so did what you did because there's no tracy's watching sports but joy what you did exactly and also we use certain production techniques so we created Rogan's heroes..
