"Tell us about Morgan Mindy, and this book that you're listening to so I'm listening to the biography of Robin Williams. It's called, Robin. And it's so good. I mean, it's one of those ones you put it in. And it tells you you're not gonna finish this book for I think sixteen hours. I don't know how many pages that comes out. So I got to speed it up. I got my reading speed at one point two five which is fast enough. So that you're making better progress, but it's not and then Robert went over to Hollywood. And when he's in Hollywood, which is how wrong. Spoken at that speed. So they talk about how he how the character of Mork came to be now, did you watch happy days? Donna I did. Okay. Did you watch more can Mindy? I did. Okay. So I watched happy days in syndication. But I don't think I've ever seen an episode of Morgan many. But I know of it have seen little clips anyway. It's just made life is amazing. So Gary Marshall is the director and the producer of happy days. Okay. Darren season five of happy days season five of happy days. Incidentally is the season where it jumped the shark phrase that we get when a TV show goes from you know, kind of be the rage and believable. Then Fonzie went out to the west coast and jumped to shark on his motorcycle in that same season, they were running out of some ideas. The year before Star Wars had come out. So Gary Marshall, admittedly, a little hard up for new ideas was talking with his son at the time. And he said, what do you think we should do which we do on happy days? And he said you should have some some kind of like a space alien because Star Wars was hot and his son loves Star Wars. So then Gary Marshall goes into the writer's room and said all right guys this the same season where they've already jumped the shark which by the way does not mean the ratings went down you are right about didn't just got weird. It just got weird. And then the weirdness continued. He goes into the writer's room and says, all right? I need Fonzie to square off with an alien and they're like, no. But Gary Marshall said, but I was the boss. So then it was gonna work. So then he goes the writers of thinking how are we ever going to be able to pull this off? This makes no sense. No one is going to buy this. And then his son he's telling us on this. And they say how can we make this believable? And he said, well, then you can just say that it was all dream, which I guess is how they ended up solving that in within happy days. So then they make it all dream, Robin. Williams comes in now, what happens at the the curtain call, you know, after they tape it in front of a live studio audience all the main players are going out, and they're all getting a plus when Robin Williams who had only ever been in that up. So nobody knew him when he stepped out on stage. They said that the studio audience stood to their feet. So he got bigger cheers than Fonzie. And then Ritchie, and it was people took notice fast forward to that summer. ABC hard up for shows. They look through the cupboards were bear. They had no interesting new shows. So then Michael Eisner who was head of. ABC back at the time. Call Gary Marshall and said, hey, what do you wanna do? You have any new ideas? We we need some new ideas. And he went on to say, look, they love you. We love you just make something up. And so then Gary Marshall said well, there was this guy who appeared on one episode, by the way, most of the executives in the brass at ABC didn't even watch it. Because by that point happy days had been on for five years. It was a ratings success. So they didn't have to manage it. You know what I mean? So when he said more it wasn't like they said. Oh, yes. Of course, when Robin Williams, they didn't know, they were none the wiser. So he said he got a huge standing ovation. He just crushed it. Why don't we do that? And they said great figure out where it's going to be set. So then Gary Marshall had a sister who was in school in Boulder, Colorado. And he said, let's have it set in Boulder, Colorado. And then Michael is a contact says, look we liked the idea we like, Mark. But we need we need something else in Gary Marshall quickly figured out what they were getting at. And he said, look, I get it you need you need it to be more and somebody what about Morgan. Mandy morgan. Melanie Morgan Mindy? Now, we figured it out. So from one from Garry Marshall's son having benefactor of Star Wars is what caused Robin Williams to become more on happy days. And then eventually more can Mindy ha. From just a kid like in Star Wars. I bet there's tons of stories in Hollywood like that agree that we don't know about that just comes from talking to your kid or your whoever your mom, your dad at the dinner table. I bet there's tons of them that would be fun to put put together a book like that. Little stories of how things came to be. And then if we look back in our own lines, we all have these little pivotal moments. Where you think boy had this not happened had? I not been there at this particular time. And I remember my father-in-law once said whether that means something good happened or bad happened. He said don't don't ever get weighed down by that. Because if you really analyze your life, you will find it is I would believe that these are all divinely orchestrated moments or if you think that they're coincidences whatever they are. He said they are all over your life for better and for worse. And so don't, you know, you don't have to get way down with all my goodness. What if I wouldn't have been in the store at that? Exact your life is made up of those things it's going to happen. It's hard to have regrets about big things that happen in your life. Right. Because if that thing wouldn't have happened, then this thing wouldn't have happened. Well, hey, do you remember when when I found out that I had gone to school with the girl from vendor pump roles Sheena we were like in class together. And then I come to find out years later. Oh, she's in the show that I never watch. Anyway. So I'm I'm reading this one of my college professors who was a mentor to me in a friend. She was the one who really liked pushed the intelligence. She was fantastic. Her name is Monica, Janice. I knew that she had appeared in Morgan Mindy at some point. So I was waiting thinking. I wonder if this will ever happen. But I didn't remember much of the backstory and they keep referencing. This comedic duo of Rick and ruby throughout the throughout the book. And there was a time that Robin Williams in San Francisco was opening for Rick and ruby then when he went on to do some stuff in New York City, it was part of a big comedy show out there. He would have Rick and ruby. Open for him come to find out. They he's going through listening to the book. And then they said Robin Williams who was in a limo at the time with one of the members of Rick and ruby Monica, Janice, and I was like son of a God listen to this. Now, the story that they were telling was actually at one point early in his career with the success of Morgan Mindy. Comedian started having backlash against Robin Williams because they said that he was stealing some of their material that he would drop into the comedy shore on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. And he would steal jokes from comedians and use them later in Mork and Mindy. Comedian said look when you use it on national TV in front of an audience of some forty million people. It's not going to work the next time. I do it. It's gonna feel like I bring you exactly. And so the example that they were giving was he was in the limo with my professor from college. An my professor from college Monica. Janice tells him a story about how her cousins grandma died something like that in before the end of that ride wherever they were going. He had retold the story in about his own life. The same parts were in the whole store. They were saying his mind moves so fast that some argue the innocently he lifted material from other people, but tapping in example of in the same ride to wherever they were going. He heard a story, and then regurgitate regurgitated it as his own story. Interesting. Very interesting. Yeah. You're right, though, mind probably because it works so fast. You just start throwing things in the story and your. Yeah. Sorry about somebody coming a comedian coming up to him at the comedy store backstage slamming him against the wall. Saying you use my joke in demand at three hundred dollars in regulars of the comedy store back then said that he paid he paid up. Wow. It's really interesting when I was a kid. I remember for Christmas one year. I was so excited because I was a fan of Mork and Mindy Robin Williams had a comedy album out called reality. What a concept. See it right now. I could see his head on the, you know, just a head shot of him on the Elbe them. Yes. It is pretty dirty. I don't think my parents realized that's because I just read about that this morning. That's what they were talking about this morning. And he saw that. In fact, there's a point I guess on the album, he just uses the f bomb lot. Yes. Where he and by the way, they do document not gender. No. Excuse me. She talks about how he got away with all sorts of dirty stuff talk about the metoo movement. I mean, they would be running a line. He could be stark naked suddenly at a rehearsal, grab her breasts on my all these things that he would get away with back then anyway, they were talking about that. And he saw that as an opportunity he felt sort of suppressed by Morgan median the network executives as kind of a family show. Yes. And then people just the corporate execs were always reeling him back in. And so that was a place for him to just let himself go and on that album. The crowd starts chanting more more more. And then I guess he breaks character and one of the only moments on the album where he uses his actual, Robin Williams voice and says guys, look, I come here. So that I can take a break from the they go on without making thing on it. Okay. So again, the name of the, Robin. It's not an autobiography and biographies on autobiography this is a biography that came out posthumously for. Robin williams. So, but it's it's really interesting listened to the narration is great too on on audible. So if you wanna listen, I don't know. But this guy's got a great voice in at times. He has to do sort of his own version of Robin. Robin Williams is doing he's pretty darn good. Oh, good call. All right. Good deal. When we come back. We're gonna put some people in time out. Oh, you're gonna put a TV show in time out. And I'm going to tell you about a guy who proposed to his girlfriend and now wants to take that proposal back. We'll tell you about that coming up next on mytalk one zero seven.

"Marshall, her late brother, Gary Marshall is the one that created Laverne and Shirley. You know, and that was kind of a spin off of happy days wasn't it kinda sorta is set like around the same time, but remember Laverne, and Shirley, and they were up in Milwaukee and they were working at shots brewery. And and gosh, you're the other cast of characters lenient squeegee they'd come in from time to time. And then and then Carmine and worked at his. I think karma is dad had the pizza place. Yeah. That was a that was a terrific show. And penny Marshall was actually married to rob Reiner at one time believe it or not from all in the family. Okay. Yeah. But yet she she was she was on the happy day spin off and that aired for that went on for eight seasons. Because remember there are Milwaukee. And then I think they moved to Hollywood. But then after that. She'd of she'd kind of gotten the bug to direct because she had directed. A few of those episodes. And then she got in the mid eighties. I'm wanting to say she got her first big break because she'd already had some experience and one of the movie studios knew that she had directed. And they asked her to come in and be a last minute replacement to direct. We'll be Goldberg's movie was sisters. No jumping Jack flash. Wow. That was the first one. I didn't know that. And then and then she directed big with Tom Hanks remember that one now was a huge one a league of their own the women's baseball league. She did that one and then. Awakenings? No. Who else she directed? That was big. But I mean, she she she had plenty of plenty of big names that she directed. And of course, she a big name herself. But yeah, so yeah, we lost a good one yesterday at the age of seventy five she is entertaining. Millions over the decades. And of course, we all fell in love with her as the wise cracking Laverne defies EEO back in the day. Very sad. You know, we also lost Nancy Wilson last week. Yes. Yes. I think she was around seventy five to nasc- might have been. Yeah. Nasc- might have been a little bit older. Yeah. For some reason. I wanted to think Nancy Wilson might have been closer to. Eighty but I could be wrong. I could be wrong. Nancy wilson. Was eighty two. I was way off Eighty-one Eighty-one Nancy wasn't with eighty one was going to be eighty two in February that wasn't that far off. But still yeah. Yeah. Another great one, and you know, in a couple of weeks, we'll do a review of the year, and you know, on TV or wherever and we'll go back at it all the people who passed away this year, we lost a law lot of famous people a lot of famous people. Tiny j powers is gonna join us in about nine minutes here. She's talking about the legislation. That's being. Being pushed out there about bump stocks and making those illegal as as as the belief is that they've turned semiautomatic weapons into automatic weapons, and essentially and I'll at town you talk more about the mechanics of the bump bump stock. But essentially the recoil of a weapon is what it gets its energy fed from which allows that trigger to be. Engaged guess more frequently I think, that's that's kinda the gist. That's the that's the elevator speech on that. Bottom of the hour here. Our top stories next hour, we're gonna talk with Kemp. Conrad. I don't know if if you'd heard about this about the three vacancies on the city council, but they decided to not work on that in fill those yesterday that has been moved on. I believe district one district six and super district. Eight. They had two rounds of voting yesterday. The only finalist left in district one. Failed to get a majority of six of the ten council members. So the city is kind of in limbo, and you have a few districts that do not have representation on the city council. In the meantime, which seems like there's something not right about that to me taxation without representation, at least at the city level. I know that there's state Senate and congress I understand that. But not on the but not on the local level. Hey, you know, pennies been getting kind of I guess pennies been getting a little feisty about. Rick Barnes, the Tennessee coach, he had you know, he had some courteous things to say and. And then at the end of it all. Not not such a maybe some kind words regarding the coach of Tennessee. And you know, I I'm guessing some folks might have been taken aback by that. Maybe a little shocked by that. But. You know? So what? So what is he saying is he saying things that we're thinking as Memphis fans, adding fuel to the flames of the Memphis in UT, possibly rebirth of the rivalry. Now. You know, we can talk about family members. But other people can't didn't he accused the team of flopping and said that Tennessee had called hit called Rick Barnes. What low class said the vault the vault. You know, he said 'cause the vol's players were off the bench toward the end of the game Saturday, and you know, penny claim that they were wanting to fight. Yeah. I think he might have pushed penny. I don't really know. All the details. But. But get out of here. That's not exactly what penny said. But but. Get the outta here. But. Yeah. But it's interesting how how penny has played this. Because you know, he's characterizing Tennessee wanting to fight little ole unranked Memphis in here. They are big bad number three trying to come after the, you know, an unranked team. But that's even made news. That's supposed to be in house who told that what to fight the statement. Was it made publicly it was made. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Sidelines. Somebody bring that to the forefront. It was said after I guess a question and answer time. I think is when he said that. Okay. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It wasn't. It wasn't passed on. No confidentiality was breached. Let's just put it that way. Okay. Okay. Yeah. So. But penny doesn't like to lose penny. Doesn't want to lose to UT. And. Penny doesn't necessarily in this particular case doesn't say the the politically expedient or politically correct thing to say he's got a team to run, you know, it's not about puppy dogs and butterflies their reality is that was an emotionally charged game that was a hard fought game. And at one point we were we were what within six at one point. And and just missed like a three I think could have really hit that three pointer in pulled that two three the roof. Water started shaking on FedEx forum. I think the heat the heat would have been on Tennessee at that point the team play good all the way through. Yeah. A little nervous at first. But then they like this is what it's going to be in went for it. Coming up. We're talking bump stocks tiny Jay powers joins us. We've got our weekly legal analysis at seven fifteen we're gonna talk city council camp Conrad. He was one of the ones that did show up at seven forty five. We'll talk with him coming up on Memphis morning news. It's forty four degrees. Now, it is going to warm up today today. We'll be the warmest day that will have for the next several days. We got to look at that Christmas day forecast to.

"Los Angeles. Hi, jason. Hey, how's it going? Yeah. She died here in Los Angeles at her home in the Hollywood hills of complications from diabetes, which she didn't. We didn't really know she was struggling with. I mean, this kind of a surprise that. This would happen. We knew she had battled lung cancer few years ago, but she was in remission for that. So we didn't know that her health problems were so dire that she was near death at any point. Let's talk a little bit about her career because we felt we feel special tied to her and to happy days in a Laverne and Shirley here in Milwaukee. And that was really a big deal for her. But it went much deeper than that. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean that was the show that really launched her. And after that, she stepped behind the camera, but most people knew her face and knew who she was from Laverne, and Shirley, and of course, from the started on happy days with a guest appearance there. But really for her started on the odd couple where she was she played a secretary on there. And she came out she came out here to Los Angeles. Her brother, Gary Marshall was writing on the show and kind of gave her a break there. But once everybody saw they saw talented. She was while she might have known a couple of people and been in the right place at the right time. It was really her talent who really broke out and then on the wearning, Shirley. I mean, the magic that the two of them had together was just so fantastic that chemistry that they had. And you know, a lot of people at the time called her that generation's Lucille ball her timing. Her comedy were just so great. Jason her directorial debut, very revolutionary, right? And she was the first female director that for movie that grows. Over one hundred million dollars is that correct with that was for big big. That was the first movie that really was a successor her. Personally, she directed was jumping Jack flash. Which was a friend of hers Goldberg, they're having trouble on the movie. So they needed to replace the director, and they brought her in and she never really directed a movie before. So she again in the right place at the right time. But she did a good job that movie wasn't a huge success. But because they saw she can handle that. That's how she got big. And then with big directing Tom Hanks in that it was the first film directed by women to gross over one hundred million dollars. Which is I mean, just kinda crazy to think that it took until the late eighties to do that. But because of that, she not only inspired people through Laverne, and Shirley and her comedy, and inspired. I think a whole generation to to wanna get into comedy. She inspired a whole generation of female directors to want to get into the business to the point du Vernay one of the greatest directors right now tweeting today. Thank you penny. Marshall for the trails, you blazed the last few gave the. Hearts you warmed? So without penny. Marshall kind of paving the way in showing that women can direct a movie, and do it successfully people like do Rene might not be in the business ABC's Jason Nathanson in Los Angeles. Thank you so much Jason take some of the names associated with our very interesting to she gave Mark Wahlberg his first acting job. He got his break. Thanks to penny.
