Now after eighteen months of it shouldn't shouldn't be position where it could be overwhelmed again. You'd think Things would be in place for that happened but It seems like it might do taking the look down at the table. And as i said it's my previous experience and it's not off the table then it kind of feels like it might happen. I mean it's just it's just unbearable to come to complex but it could have. Couldn't it be i suppose you why it'd be. We have been joe for several years now that the winter christ the nhl winter classes comes earlier every year. Nobody starts august. We start a but this question of the just being overwhelmed. I know it's actually. One of the impact has been on a other treatments and patients. And and that sort of thing but i mean we currently back in january. We were seeing four thousand patients indictment also and we're running it about nine hundred. Which is you know. It's still a lot but it's not minova near what we saw in january and actually the. Nhs came under huge pressure both early last year and january this year but was not over where it didn't completely collapse and actually the is there to look after us. We're not we're not in the business of looking after the nhs. It's hugh jacob could breathe smoke that it's one of the few things he's ever said that i agree with that.

We had a month lockdown november and then we had three months lockdown january february march.

It just looks like it's higher rates of covet We'll struggling all the jesse struggling. And i think that will come back at him in the polls.

We haven't gone top with this that we probably didn't do enough during the summit makes sure be and it just was okay when there was a breathing space that we didn't catch up on the backlog the people still haven't seen that gp's The actually the there wasn't enough impetus put in to make sure that wasn't gonna happen all over again and he can't say now. Oh different one of fantastic. You know because that doesn't work anymore because you look at them. All look at italy look everywhere in europe almost as got a high of fascination now worse position nothing that thing is the astra zeneca won't be used in the booster jab cry done. Which is i mean. That is a significant blow to all kind of field factor about coming up with the vaccine. I and getting out there.

Well, this is before they were right, right? Where did the Beatles meet Elvis? At at his home at the White House. Know, is that his mansion in Bel-Air? That's right. George Harrison was a member of which society. The Elvis Presley Society, the Buddy Holly Society or the George Formby Society, Buddy. Holly. Yeah, Buddy. Holly that would be incorrect.

Well, they came to America in February. I'm answering all the questions 64. We made this attack team Affair. Okay, 64 was when she arrived in America, to be on The Ed Sullivan Show February, but the song She Loves You 63. Yeah. It was late sixty-three. So I'm going to say 64. So your answers here are February, 63 to February 64, February 65. You want to go with February 64? That is correct about that. It was big, wasn't it? Smitty, you know, it was, you should have been there for that, you know? That's, that's awesome. I remember the Kennedy assassination and how everybody felt about it. Everybody was depressed. They felt bad. They were scared because, you know, it just seemed like such an unusual shocking thing that we all witnessed off and shortly after that, it was sort of like the Beatles brought everybody out of that, three months later, they did. Yeah, they, they flipped the entire world and it was like that night when Ed Sullivan, the first Ed Sullivan appearance by the Bee Gees With the odd statistic on, that was New York City, for that 14 minutes or whatever. They run. New York City had no crime. Yeah, no crime. Everybody was watching. Well, what was the guy? Cultural shift pre Beatles post-beatles. There was like a mind-set in America but because the assassination and who we were as people and then the Beatles came and what did the Beatles represent that made them so popular. It's like I don't know. You were 17. I know. 17. Yeah. If you know what, it was David that was the newness and change. The the generational I was ten and I was like blown away. Completely became a radio, listening Beetle freak record buying, you know, and it lasted the whole time that they were together until I was sixteen Seventeen years old. And then after they broke up, they went individual careers. They still had magic honest, you know, we listen to everything. They said, even after would you like most off? First Beatles breakup. Well like their music and jumped into their music. I like John's lyrical anger. Which he always had and how do you easily Paul McCartney's. Melodic ability to just have a song that you could always have in the back of your mind that you helped sing along with. You know, they were two different people. One was a kind of a light bulb and I think more more setting the pace for the, the lyric, not the lyrics, the the melody and John was this guy who had these biting, you know, the lyrics that got to you with John. Whether I wasn't the the melody so much. I agree, same thing and when they wrote together, that's what made a magical age. I'm right. The middle eight Paul, write a song and then John wrote a song and Pollard, right? The middle late in the song ended up being two little songs Running. Did it quickly to they just throw that stuff together. So amazing. They did it quickly. They did it quickly. And they did it well, like, a prostitute and they, they had everybody's attention.

"But the story is significantly different right so same beats as film then no no a meat. Very much in adept asian. Brian open source material. More of a bone identity. Type thing. Those were they. They basically take the name of jason bourne. And that's about it. Maybe some sort of incident in the book that uses their inspiration for the story but yeah they're largely inventions. Would you say this one is more invention or just kind of maybe of like some of the bonds where they take some setup they take some characters but they kind of changed the direction throughout. Us sums it up. Yeah okay that makes sense when you have Harry saltzman producing. He has his template for how he makes bond movies. That makes sense that he would carry that over to this world as well right well i want to get into the individual performances but one thing i did want to talk about quickly before we move onto that is i know. Obviously duncan you are pressuring musician by trade and we we know you love the soundtrack. I think camps. You're a big fan of the soundtrack to the fuss films. Well i that remember it so much myself but straight straightaway in. This movie is outrageously weird. Yeah well i can throw some light on that. Because i actually that comes from the novel i think because Now i'm gonna forget which character it is but one of the characters has Very sophisticated musical tastes and he listens to avant garde or contemporary twentieth century. Classical music. so we're talking about vape. Burn burg start housing. That kind of stuff Is he sort of daily listening. And so i think that the the the music beginning which is post office t to show us how sophisticated everybody in the west is Is taken perhaps from that idea in the book i wrote down. What is this opening track. It feels like mixed between george formby and the imperial march while. That's a styles clash right there. I want to hear that.

Bakul musical come my dad are you gonna bring that up every every day I go yes for the rest your life for the right that's absolutely my mom phrase every year is what I was going through a twenty five twenty six years ago yes thanks my first drink what is with that my first legal drink was bought mine by my dad's best friend who had a folded up twenty dollar bill in his wallet that my dad a given before he had passed away and said buying his first legal drink for me nice and let him know this twenty came from a cell obviously that first drink that was going to be an important thing for me and the boy didn't work ray did not work out we are awaiting a statement from the White House from president trump that is supposed to be happening here in about two minutes so when it does we will go to that live but in the meantime can we appreciate you all holding on as long as you did can your up with big Alan judge on KOAA news radio are you guys doing doing okay one okay yeah I think I'll I used up all your I used to watch the Cincinnati Bengals when you were thank you brother you're the one you're the one watching today Bengals back then I know you guys were guys are pretty good when they when they drafted you that they're just got up right I heard Brandon Marshall speaking and I was glad to hear that some came out of that those protests the football players were doing but I'm a fat and and their message got lost with me kneeling for the national anthem I just wish they could have found a different way to do it but I'm glad to see some good came out of it and I'm afraid what's going on now people are going to lose the message with all this writing going on you're gonna lose the basics message I got one thing to say I'm a white older guy you know it that automatically in most people tax me as a racist but you know what I do when I fill out forms at the doctor's office or somewhere else where it's gonna call Cajun black white Latino whatever I close it all out and put American that's what we all need to do is be Americans no black brown yellow whatever and that's all I just want to get off my chest you guys thank you for coming to you by the way thank you can we are you we we appreciate your comments and that's a great point about and I think that's the message that when you hear of black people talk you're African Americans talk about what they want that's all we want right we just want to feel comfortable no matter where we go in what neighborhood we in our old what car we drive in when we get there so are all of those things that would just say it that's that's what that's what we want that's what we all want we all just want to be treated fairly but that's just been the struggle I mean we have to have a civil rights movement just to get that all right well we've got a vendor Cain waiting as we await president trump who's going to be making a statement coming up here just a momentarily but it's a great player in the National Hockey League and somebody I never want to see on the other side of the ice when they're playing the Colorado avalanche's his offender cane vendor we we appreciate you joining us in a very divisive time in our country right now well they certainly August well this sorry business certainly as band and I opening experience something for the entire country and and to see all of the the pain that was because just last week when George Floyd died unfortunately has has taken this whole country and moved us in a different direction than we were going to felt like that we will coming out of this corona virus and we were heading to a new place and this is shook everybody in this country and I think the the images will never be forgotten yeah if somebody were told told anyone any of us in the last week that coronavirus is going to be a footnote today we we will probably what we want to believe that you know it would have been a surprise you know this is definitely taken over the world especially here in North America and it took us another black man on on on video get murdered by the hands of you know police officers a vendor you for somebody who obviously is a professional athlete and I think so often and more often than not you have professional athletes that are too concerned about their brand to concerned about their image to to speak their mind and to speak up when is the time becomes appropriate and you put all that aside and you spoke up anyway yeah I mean I've always been one test to speak my mind and you know when it comes to when it comes to this technician which was really a bad idea she wants something or not you know it's something that affects everybody not just black people and and I you know I I can't stress that enough but but the people that are being oppressed the people are suffering from from the inadequacies are black people and and the black community and I think that's that's what needs to get fixed you know it's it's really unfortunate that it took another senseless murder a little of a black man for this to be highlighted integriert you know I haven't seen in my lifetime and you know there's countless examples of of this transpired over the last number of years the last couple of months the whole John Taylor is well and and so on and so forth and we as a society I think just because of the fashion in which George why this was murdered I finally and hopefully taken taken notice that you know this this happens often they have to change once you for all when I saw the video I just broke down in tears and I think you know what social media played a big part in most people's lives now that everybody has a cell phone internet access the internet you see protests everywhere now you see him in London Berlin and Milan all over the world people are participating in this I got a feeling that this is not just about George Florida feels like this is about just doing the right thing is always doing the right thing and it starts with our policemen I really you know I'm I watch the video once in full and it was the first time in the washer I I I can't watch it hello again just because she was scared and you know I I think and I I hope it has that effect on on everybody and like I said it's unfortunate that the one thing I will say Gee whiz I I keep hearing some of the people that are trying to take away from what the cause of all these protests and riots looting what what actually truly because this is not the George Formby murder that happened late it's not that people are trying to shift the narrative poems and and kind of again sweep this shoot your Florida under the rug and by focusing on the looting and the clients and it'll look violent part of this incident and I'm not in the interest of you gotta blame the media and and for me people talk about how the media talks okay well this isn't what George Floyd died for he didn't die for anything you want to suppose that I should have died he was murdered so this is all about what George Ford died for you wouldn't do it he was going about his day my numbers he was murdered he didn't die for anything in die to try to create it all this media storm and and and and the uproar he has still be alive thank so I'm sick of hearing the media talk about business only die for it when it comes to trying to stop people from protesting and you don't I don't condone any of the things that they're doing not for sure you know I I don't understand the destroying small businesses and and and stealing I I don't I don't get that but at the same time I understand that I get the reaction I I it just comes to a point where it's it's too much for people to handle and and and they act out and that's what you're seeing but the reason that this happened was because George Ford will murder at the hands of police officer accepting four days just to arrest one of the four officers good point Evander Kane great player for the San Jose Sharks is our guest we are waiting for a statement from the White House from a president trump that is going to be coming momentarily when you talk about speaking out and one of the things I you know I heard you say is you do think that it is a time for professional athletes especially professional athletes of color should be speaking out and should be taken a stand against what is happening hi I think I think it's professional athletes will put on a pedestal you know at the very top when it comes to role models when it comes to town having power powerful voices and and powerful platforms and they would be a shame if all I did was use that platform to talk about sports and and and and have it be sports related especially when you know the country I live in a log fire because of racial racial injustices that have been going on for hundreds of years and now we're just being caught on video so I think it's imperative that we continue to use those horses and have more more people starting to use their voice on these issues that are important to society because if you don't I think it's going to affect you your family rock it's going to affect everybody and I hope it doesn't get worse I can only hope it gets better from here you know one thing about I think a lot of that gets lost in translation is it my being silent if you're just being complacent and you know we can't afford to have that type of complacency what it comes to these issues bannermen I want to say thank you for joining us and I gotta tell you man you know when you start talking about the likes of all the pro athletes that you can muster up there to to say anything about this maybe one of the greatest voices today or so say yesterday said something Michael Jordan which means that that would be that officially I think the first time that I've heard anything regarding race relations in this country with Michael Jordan or some of the other most famous people that are that are involved in pro athletics and I would like for this not to be politicized I don't want this to be something where it's the right versus the left this was just wrong and we should just call that out that's just all I want to say about it yeah I agree the vendor we appreciate you joining us we hope that you are staying healthy and good luck just not great like it when you shall see if it gets back underway okay all right well I appreciate your help I thank you very much vendor came from the San Jose Sharks joining us here with big Alan Jo Jo centers is always been a thorn in the side of the Colorado Avalanche so when the inventor Kane himself thorn in the side of the Colorado Avalanche so we are waiting to hear from the White House a trump but he is president trump is going to be making a statement from the White House that is supposed to be coming up at four thirty when it does we will carry it live here on KOAA news radio listen to this understanding Colorado we re opening getting back to work wearing masks in public understanding the country

I didn't I didn't hear that bit so. Yeah, that's good. Yeah. Well, I certainly a, a worthwhile project. Maybe we should get it going. Yeah. Maybe we sure it's not doing that. I probably as you say, it was probably too soon before because everything was changing so rapidly. But I feel I some things of kind of leveled off. So maybe it's a good time to do it anyway. Yeah. Yeah. Maybe something for laser it. Would it would? Yeah. Yeah, it would be interesting wouldn't now apart from using I mean, you probably one of the most autistic people, I know.

And it's really Greg community space. But you still got your little bubble to going to so, you know, so. Yes. So the company to these spicy. Early. It's a caravan talk it to festivals or events. And but before the event are go to the town and collect compliments I ask people to audio recording. So I ask people to think of someone in their life, and to say, a compliment is speaking directly to them, so you beautiful. I love the way you. Fogarty's.

Do an insult show I've done it once, but I'll talk to that more, where it's, it's kind of a room of five really add electric guitars, and you have to yell out insults, but you can't kind of voice, but it's about kind of getting something off just right. So vent venting frustration. Yeah, it's amazing. You can hobby, even feel your voice guitar, so that, but that's popular. People enjoy compliments bib a bit more. Do you have in what, what else, have you got in mind coming up since I've moved to heats this. I'm just starting to kind of. Now look at what's going on in what I can do.

And it's it's always performed by, like, who refugees in always perform inside a tunnel set kind of plays on lots at the end of the tunnel. And it's just it's a lot of this community kind of projects that juries, or sand, has strong sound element. So it's so that's all of they recorded stories about moments of light in the life. Have you connected with any of the ukulele community down in Tasmania? I did a of metacarpal. Was intensified easy. Bus going Honey, the part of the safari. Yeah. Yeah.

It was strange enough to be Hungarian in there wasn't really hungering community. It says. Yes. So just wanted to feed in fifteen it'd be knowable spice like other people. Yeah. It's tough. I guess, in that sort of mess to color, your, your work with them refugees now knowing that your dad was one. Absolutely. I mean. Yeah. And I just, you know if he was alive.

It's pony area for me. I guess, to them spending time spent time with and, and that can be creative things. Well to even thinking what, what shape I want to have this garden big garden based, what about a ukulele shaped garden bid that would work for a big thing in the middle. Like four rows of lettuces for the strings. Okay. I can do that one question, which I've never asked, which I'm not sure why haven't asked why turtle in rose turtle Littler. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.

Dad was living on all and through all before he was married, and he was while the side of the story goes, he was kind of, like, sheep ritual. That's a bit dramatic ran aground. There will try to save a man who'd been a local man who'd been bitten by shock who ended up not surviving, but they the ship sank and dead to retrieve few of his belongings, which review shows and to, to show so that he must have hunted. Hopefully it wasn't endangered one but and then I used to remember when I was swimming at the different Putin Olympic swimming swim only spec. I feel like a turtle and.

Banja utilize so one day sick of seeing my little soprano gathering dust in the corner of my bedroom. I also teach me a few codes. And that's where it all began. Now, I feel I should point out the plane. The ukulele wasn't extremely odd thing to do nine hundred ninety particularly in South Africa. Most people had never heard of the new fangled intimate and the only living person I've ever seen play was my step grandad. Luckily, I could go with my dad to a local folk club, which is where I started performing I emigrated with my family to a stray Ilya just over twenty years ago and my dad, and I quickly found places to play in two thousand and four I was invited to perform small concert that was being organized, by lovely woman named rose to.
