The Story of Auld Lang Syne

"Well when this time of year rolls around you probably will hear one song and one song in particular seemingly over and over again. Quick note here. I was listening to my christmas traditional songs. And i kept hearing it. But what song am i talking about. Well i just told you old. Elaine sign it does have a rather big nostalgia meaning to it and along with it here in the united states. A bit of sadness and usually marks an emotional scene or we action. The song. old lang sign was originally written in scottish. When taken apart and put back together again. An- actually means old long sense and is translated yet again to mean all times sake or for the sake of old times this song that is mostly sung and means the emotional conclusion to another year. And don't we need that. It also means that one must remember people from their past and raise a toast to them. Originally it was written many many years ago as a scottish celebration song. Old lang zayn is actually a scottish language. Written by robert burns in seventeen eighty eight and set to the tune of a traditional folk song. But did you know that. In the netherlands. It is a soccer anthem and in japan. It is a song about firefly's and and south korea. It was the national anthem until nineteen forty eight. It is known as being easily adaptable and mostly all musical styles. That is why it is so cool but at its core it is well known and many countries especially in the english speaking world. It's traditional use. Being to bid farewell to the old year at the stroke of midnight on new year's eve it is also sung at funerals graduations and as a farewell or ending to other asians the international scouting movement in many countries uses it to close jamborees and other functions and a little note here when i was watching the crown on netflix day. Sung it when they said goodbye to the prime minister. Certainly most of us know the song old lang zayn but to quote from the first stanza of the english version of the james watson ballad. Here it goes should be aware since be forgot and never thought upon the flames of love extinguished and fully past and gone is thy sweetheart now grown so cold that loving breast of nine the thou cast never once reflect on old lang zayn in scotland. It is common practice that everyone joins hands with the person next to them. To form a great circle around the dance floor at the beginning of the last verse. Everyone crosses their arms across their breast so that the right hand reaches out to the neighbor on the left side and vice versa win the tune ends everyone rushes to the middle while still holding hands when the circle is re established everyone turns under the arms to end up facing outward with hands still joined in countries other than scotland. The hands are often crossed from the beginning of the song at variance with scottish custom. And did you know. The scottish practice was demonstrated by queen elizabeth second at the millennium dome celebrations for the year. Two thousand some press outlets berated her for not properly crossing her arms. She was unaware that she was incorrectly. Following the scottish tradition and because of its easy tune and melody it was also used as a song to signify for the war to end having the title. I wish the war was over and it was a popular anti-slavery song entitled fling out. The anti slavery flag both were using old anxiety as the basis for those songs. If you listen closely you can hear the song all lang sign and many movies too. Well did you know that these movies are we willie winkle a nineteen thirty seven. Shirley temple movie when her character sings to console a dying soldier. Mr smith goes to washington the nineteen thirty nine movie. Ocean's eleven the original of nineteen sixty as background music and the poseidon adventure one of my favorites that was made in nineteen seventy two ghostbusters and nineteen eighty nine. When harry met sally in nineteen eighty nine as well forrest gump in nineteen ninety four and elf and two thousand and three and most notably the very last song that is in the movie. It's a wonderful life with jimmy stewart. It is after all probably the best feel good ending in a classic movie ever with plenty of emotion for the main character at the last scene of the movie which brings george bailey the main character to tears as he acknowledges how great life really is and it is always at the stroke of midnight composer guy lombardi would play it on the radio and continued the tradition for fifty years afterwards. Dick clark took it up to play at the stroke of midnight on. Dick clark's new year's rocking eve. Every year and new york city as the big ball dropped at the stroke of midnight but after dick clark retired from the show ryan. Seacrest did the same at the stroke of midnight every year. They all had something in common with playing the song. It was an remembrance of those that came before and at the same time to mark the new year. All the fans and celebrators would sing along to the classic song so this year twenty twenty when the clock strikes. Twelve a m sing along to this classic song. Even if you don't know all the words we are indeed saying goodbye to twenty twenty

"Yes. That's from. It's a wonderful life because it's the end of the year looking at New Year's and the weekend of New Year's we usually at this time of the year. We do broadcast on George Bailey and Potters Ville the theme of the broadcast being what would the world look like if George Bailey wasn't here. What would it look like if you weren't here? Part of the reason is because we've had a tradition. Our household for years and years to stay off the roads on New Year's Eve. So what we do is we go out early. We get pizza become in. We all watch the old black and white version of its wonderful life. And then we go to bed and the biggest reason for that is because we are worried about the danger of what happens on the highways. And so we've decided over the last couple of years to change the nature of our final year broadcast. Because we have such a love and a passion and appreciation for the folks that listen to the public square to the folks who write us all throughout the year and tell us their stories and tell us what they're thinking for the people who get involved in the public policy side of what we're doing and they registered to vote. They go out they vote they run for public office. They tried to serve in their community for the people who contribute to this broadcast on a regular basis. People who come to events, we get to meet and share together and pray together and cry together and laugh together, we love this listening audience and every year when we pray for our families and for safety and protection for health. We also find ourselves praying for our listeners. So as a group those of us that have now all become parents and some of his grandparents this is a time of year that scares us because we lose people this time of the year. And we lose them on the highways, and we lose them too drunk and drugged driving. That's a long way of introducing a show to say, I'm Dave NADA. You're listening to the public square with us today is our executive producer Ellen Donkin and the vice president of the American policy roundtable, rob gate, and rob were about to bring back an old program when you went out to Dallas to interview with the leadership of mothers against drunk driving took a road trip, and it was a road trip that impacted me because I heard real stories of real people because many of the folks that are involved in the president of mothers against drunk driving are that way because they've been impacted directly and the president Colleen Sheehy church lost a son to someone that was drunk and drugged. He was in a car and to hear the stories that are told it breaks, your heart. It really does. Well, we've got a program here that's going to run for almost an hour in which we're going to cover that interview. We're going. Brief with others from our public square team from that two thousand fifteen interview, but I wanna make a very clear point here back in two thousand fifteen mothers against drunk driving was doing research. They were watching what was happening with the addition of the legalization of drugs across our country, particularly with marijuana use in specific states. And they were analyzing if there would be an impact from the legalization of marijuana, and what was happening on our highways with accidents arrested fatalities in the final segment of our broadcast. We're going to spend some time talking about that specifically because we've waited to put the renewed close on this show to update everyone with the realities now, and it's something that you're not gonna wanna miss. There's a very important component to this as well. Rob just for the record. How bad is the problem when it comes to drunk driving, very bad? Colleen can cite stats off the top of her head and one of the things when we hung up a little bit ago that she said in you'll hear numbers in this interview from two years ago as well, but every day over three hundred thousand people drive with drugs now call in their system on our roadways in every day four thousand people are arrested for drunk or drugged driving. Not convicted just arrested for it. So yes, it's a big problem it impacts each and every one of us I figure three hundred thousand what was that again three hundred thousand every day are on our roadways driving with drugs now call in their system. Now, I I know this is not exactly happy radio. I know that we're to the point of the holiday season words, happy holidays. It's New Year's Eve and should old acquaintance be forgot we gave him four weeks of Christmas program. I mean, we're due to get the feet back on the ground and the reality of all the sludge. And this is a very serious problem. Why are we doing this? Please understand. We're not doing it because of a moral crusade against substances or.

"In fact, the first actors over we are an intermission. And I appreciate the lead actor here. Full of Callen plays George Bailey. Taking the time to join us during intermission, Philip. Thanks. I appreciate that. Good to see again. It's great to see you. Dave. Thanks for having us on. This is exciting. And Jim Cunningham joining us here during the intermission. What are you guys normally do during this time period? Normally we drink a lot of hot tea swallow some Honey to try and maintain our voice. Well, again, let's talk about the success of this Philip let me ask you about this thirteen years ago, you decided to take on this role. You guys are basically everybody still together that's amazing to me. But which also interesting and Christopher and I were chatting about the popularity was good. It just keeps getting better. You've sold out. Most of the shows before you even started. It's incredible. I know for a fact that none of us envisioned being at this point and thirteen like, you said thirteen years. I've nobody works on a project that has that kind of longevity. I mean, you're lucky if a theater comes back around on something the next year and says, let's do it again ABC can't make it. But can you just it's not her? It's unheard of. And so that's. You know to be able to have that kind of connection with our friends, and and the story, it's it's remarkable. You don't to talk about the movie, but I want to mention this Philip as well because you play George Bailey. But you're not doing a Jimmy Stewart impression yet, you know. It was interesting. We first started working on this, Jim. And I talked about this at length. I like, I'm not there's no way I'm not doing. I'm not doing the movie I'm not doing Jimmy Stewart. I'm I'm going to create my own George Bailey. Well, you realize pretty quickly that that's not really what can happen right is the movie script. So it has Stewart's rhythms and his inflections. And it's a it's an iconic movie. So but I'm not playing Jimmy Stewart, which makes it easy. It's like a level of protection. And then there are moments that are so I kind of Jimmy Stewart where and again, it's not me impersonating him. It's just giving into the rhythms of the story. And I think for some people I'm sure in the audience they go, oh, well that's Jimmy Stewart. And it's not because I'm trying to be Jimmy Stewart. It's just his performance is so powerful that it informs. What you say how you said. It's a weird. It's a weird thing. But it's beautiful. And it's obviously the audiences love whatever you're doing to say, the least and GM congrats on the success was talk about the movie itself. Oh, this is the radio play. But the movie everybody seems to know. Yeah. I. The message of this movie is so powerful the idea that that heaven is interested in one guy, which means having might be interested in all of us individually and collectively, but the idea that they would take enough time and trouble to send and Djelic help for one man is very hopeful message. I think for all of us. And I think that's why this story resonates today is strongly or maybe the more strongly than it did when the movie came out when the movie came out it was not an overnight success. It did moderately well, but would have disappeared completely like so many movies from that time period had the rights to the film, not been renewed. And because it lapsed and was in what's called public domain television stations could play it for free. And so they started doing that. And it gave it this second life. And it's the reason we all know it now. I often wonder is that some sort of intervention. In terms of getting this message back out to people. 'cause I'm a firm believer in this message that there is there is hope out there, and certainly Bedford falls proofs that George and thrilled with our sponsor, spare key this year and the work. They do Boorda's that tie into the story. Yeah. Doesn't it Felton and Jimmy just touched on this? And I think that's a really beautiful thought that heaven would be interested in in one person, but that in explaining it, it's not saying you have value. It's that your value reaches so far, you have no concept of how deep your value goes. So I'm not just rescuing one person I'm sending the whole community because I save you. If we can save you everybody will be okay. It's it's this gorgeous message about your affect on the people around you. Your your life matters because you touch other people and you had hall of famers involved in this in the history of this movie. I mean, we're the berry Moore's in the Capra's we already mentioned Jimmy Stewart. Yeah. And what's interesting about the history of the movie, not only that it didn't necessarily do. Well, when it first came out, but that Jimmy was just back from World War Two. And and really filling your research. He was shattered. No this. I mean, we don't talk much about it. And we're dismissive not dismissive of of the contributions of people in World War Two. But we're because so many men came back just shattered, and we didn't have the language yet to talk about it. And they certainly didn't have the language to talk about it talking about it just meant they limit again. So we've just said sort of said, hey, Stewart came back from the war to a different world. Well, Stewart was bomber pilot and people were his lives were in his hands. And he came back with PTSD. I mean, they didn't have a name for shattered, absolutely shattered. I mean, the stories about I was just reading an article that talked about it. He he couldn't eat. They like had. He was. Started out on a different diet because he couldn't keep food down. He would throw up and go into rages, and so he had to deal with that. And then reinsert himself into Hollywood. And there was a whole new generation of young men that we're taking roles and his confidence. I mean, you can imagine his confidence was shot completely. And so he really didn't think he could carry a moving. Who talked him into Lionel Barrymore did who plays Mr. Potter? And he of course, he had a long relationship with America as an actor. But also, especially at Christmas time, he would read. Charles Dickens, a Christmas carols. So he I think maybe because of his understanding of a Christmas Carol and a Christmas Carol, and it's wonderful life are linked. I think because really a wonderful life is that same story. But it's told from Bob crashes point of view, Georgia's, Bob, and we're seeing the world through Bob's point of view. But Lionel Barrymore, I think maybe had an intuitive understanding of the potential important message of this film, and he reached out after Stewart had turned down the film and said, the only guy in Hollywood that can do this you the only person that could ever play this role you need to take take another look at the script you need to trust me. When I tell you it's right for you. It's right for America. At this point, you need to make this movie with me, and that was enough and Jimmy said, yes, Frank Capra. I think understood where Jimmy was. Because Frank Capra who had spent time creating inspirational films specifically in support of the war effort. And I think he knew that you had Jimmy wasn't just this one time good looking kid that went off to war. He came back a changed, man. And we see that anger and rage in George in the course of the film, and in the course of our show, and it's that. That energy that Capra was interested in out of out of Stewart. And if it wasn't for Lionel Barrymore, he might never have done it. And of course, she became the role that he is most closely identified with but speaking of relationships like you just did in in less than sixty can you tell me why thirteen years later you and the rest of the cast are still together. I think there's a variety of factors not the least of which is beautiful Saint Paul hotel and the home that they have given this show and their care of us as performers but also the beautiful beautiful hotel that we get to do this. And then the the longstanding friendships that were there before we started working together. But as we maybe have mentioned, this is an unusual. Kind of experienced even for us as actors to be able to get together once a year and do a month a very intense work twice a day Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I just so blessed so lucky to be able to do it. Well, we all are as listeners now certainly here on the radio here the rest of this. No, you're anxious to hear the closing of interest to be minutes. Philip great to see again, I know you live in New York. But I know what it means to you that you come back every year and do David. Thank you. It's it's so special to be back in. It's so fantastic. Jimmy said to have that relationship with the hotel to have a relationship with you WBZ CEO to be able to be heard live on the air. I mean. That's the that's just a it's such a joy. The Ray the way radio was meant to be. Jim great to see a congrats on the sellouts. It's been awesome to see again. Here this evening. I'll let you get back out. And thank you to both for taking the IV for your hot, tea, and lemon. So we didn't have to stop and get that Hanaway in here. We got remember these out back on stage. Speaking of I have to send a shout out to my parents listening at independence village, which we call IV in.
