They have antonio gibson back is huge. Smith did practice on thursday so it's trending towards him play now. He wasn't playing as well. His last few starts that we saw him out there even before the calf injury as he was when he first came into the lineup.

You're not going to get from the other quarterbacks on that roster this needs to be about washington's rookie class though to chase young antonio gibson these guys are key to this team and it's incredibly. These teams met in back in week one.

NFL flexes Washington-Panthers to keep intrigue in Cowboys-Eagles
"Let's start with. The panthers and washington got moved to four zero five because they do not want the philadelphia eagles and the dallas cowboys to know that they've been eliminated if washington wins. They want the eagles and cowboys to still believe that. There's a chance dominated a chance during that game. So what do you got for. Washington carolina while for fantasy purposes It's well we're going to have to see who washington's quarterback is this week although rate before we got on on the podcasts. Here there was a situation involving dwayne haskins. Where their post on social media of of haskins Getting swag on at a at a strip club without a mask on look believe me. I know that there are Those are establishments where clothing is optional. but in the nfl masks are not right now. So washington is not going to be very happy about dwayne haskins. I think it was Tom pal sarab. Nfl network reporting that the team is handling that internally not happy. I'm sure. I think they want alex smith back this week. Anyway against carolina that would raise the ceiling of this offense. I'm still not one hundred percent. I as a matter of fact. I'm not confident at all antonio gibson playing this game turf toe is very painful so that should mean a big role for jd. Mckissic once again had a huge fantasy game last week against seattle. It was nice to see terri mclaren. Come alive in that game. A little bit with dwayne haskins at quarterback too good matchup against carolina. I would use him as a wide receiver. Three and over last month of the season only two tight end. Travis kelsey and darren waller have been targeted more have caught more passes and scored more fantasy points than logan thomas. He is a tight end. One now against the carolina panthers and i think everything would look better for washington if alex smith can play quarterback.

The deal still pending formal approval from the P A in the board of governors, but all signs pointing towards the return of hockey within the next few weeks. And I felt a shorthand in Washington football team home against Seattle on Sunday. QB Alex Smith ruled out with a calf issue. So Dwayne Haskins said to make his first start since Week four after getting benched in early October. Haskins certainly appreciative of this opportunity. Biggest thing I wanted to do face in this whole thing's come on the other side stronger. That's what I did looking forward to doing that. With high opportunity that I get going forward.

Why is no one sitting down with johnny depp. In saying yo at this point we know what you want to do. You want to clear your name. We know you're eagles getting involved.

Money fame and boyfriends. Like brad pitt. But gwyneth paltrow says the cost of fame was so high that she didn't want to keep doing it. Here's how she explained it on sirius. Xm's quarantined with bruce part of the shine of acting. What wore off. You know being in such intense public scrutiny beings a kid who's like living every break-up on every headline like being criticized for everything you do say in where show and also the the you know you're you're it's so transitory you're always all over. You think was more famous for her acting or for headlines. Sometimes i think back. In the olden days of hollywood in the early two thousands they kinda sorta went hand in hand. I think you became more famous when you were in a couple. And i think that's why a lot of times eight listeners hookup because they realize that their currency is doubled. Now still true today. The people don't use it as much as the used to i think. Stars kerry washington a-list stars mindy kaelin. They don't really use their relationships. Kids that are personalized very much. They have restricted that access and they got smart because they realized that once you do it once you can never stop ever even if you wanna stop it yet. Can't do it also in tech entrepreneurs and the new this out is yeah. I agree with you. i think for me. She's always been movie star. I assure the tabloids all the time about relationships but nine hundred ninety eight was her year sliding doors shakespeare in love expectations that was about the film's first and foremost and then after. That came all this when i started google and that created like a whole new kind of door to joe. And yeah she. She's now opened the doors to say like whatever. But i also think he's at a point now where she is just like take handles it all so much better. That's why she's clearly pursued kept pursuing this staying in the main stream and being super famous at the way she could've hidden away and not been out and about but she's everywhere like does not shy away at all so she's clearly got come to terms with this. I do think like it always helps if you can get into a relationship with another celebrity. I mean if you're trying to increase your fame. I'm that's why you have so many I'm using i know wags is not a bad term but i mean the women who there are a lot of women that go after just famous people are a lot of men that just go after famous women and it's like they do that for a period of time because they're really trying to increase their stardom and it helps

Big Brass Banned
"Goes way way back and was created in distant disparate places egypt rome india italy hungary. You name it. There are ancient roman coins that depict niro playing the bagpipes so while we can debate whether or not nero fiddled while rome burned hinging mostly on what the definition of fiddle is. It seems clear. He played the bagpipes. It's not clear when bagpipes made it to scotland. But we do know that at the time they had only a single drone. The pipe put makes the characteristic constant background note until the fifteen hundreds won a second drone was added and the last drone was added in the seventeen hundreds all of the chiefs of the highland clans employed pipers for both peacetime and war spurring their troops on victory until seventeen forty five bagpipes were linked to jacobite ism the movement that sought to remove james the second from the british throne and restore the catholic. Stuart kings the jacobites saw the bagpipes. As an icon of scottish national belonging and military pride while there are loyalist opponents saw it at best as a risible accessory for unflattering caricatures and at worse as an instrument of war carrying pipes was viewed the same as carrying a weapon. And a your command was tried for treason. The court declared quote no highland regiment data piper and therefore. His bagpipes in the eyes of the law was an instrument of author and sentenced him to death but john gibson author of traditional gaelic bag piping seventeen forty five to nineteen forty-five said it didn't happen that way the bagpipe man. Not the execution. That part happened. In fact the execution of the piper james reid might have to the muddling of the historical waters. Some of the confusion seems to stem from the disarming act of seventeen forty six which would get an amendment quote restraining. The use of highland dress this outlawed tartan plaid but didn't say anything about bagpipes. James reid may well have been piper. But that wasn't why he got the short drop and sudden stop he'd taken part in jacobite rebellion's and conviction had nothing to do with the disarming act so a case could be made that the seventeen forty five ban. Didn't actually happen. That makes that one line from braveheart. Goodbye plan outlawed. Choose twice as wrong. Since that set over four centuries earlier the bagpipes were verifiably band. In the nineteen forties in poland. Germans forbade the polls to play their pipes for a similar reason. Because of its ability to stir up nationalist spirit. Just think about that the next time you say it sounds like a bag of cats and a garbage disposal in fairness though you're not completely alone in your entirely wrong hatred of bagpipes in eighteen ninety seven. Belgium sent an expedition to antarctica with the intention of being the first party to over winter there even in modern antarctica with modern transportation. A lot of planning goes into keeping a crew alive. If you're in charge of the food you might have to plan out a years worth of meals and order your supplies eighteen months in advance. And that's today so imagine what it was like more than one hundred twenty years ago. Part of the plan of the rv gca that being the ship that they took was to hunt and eat penguins which would not only provide them with fat and protein but also vitamin c to ward off scurvy catching animals perfectly adapted to the harshest climate on earth turned out to be much easier than they thought. The supplies of the ship included a few musical instruments to maintain morale and whatnot. Apparently all you had to do was play the trumpet and the penguins would come right up to you when one man took out his banjo and played. It's a long way to tipperary a whole raft of penguins which is the collective noun gathered to listen. The reception was somewhat more critical for the bagpiper. The penguins fled in terror and plunged back into the sea tremendous tinkerer. Benjamin franklin had been so captivated by performances on musical glasses. Were you rub your fingers around the rim of glasses with different amounts of water in them to produce different notes. It was big in the eighteenth century and franklin wanted to see if he could make it even better. He saw that before each concert. The performer would tune the instrument by filling each glass with just the right amount of water. That sounds like a half. And if you watched miss congeniality by choice or because it was on in the waiting room you know that musical glasses are one of the few instruments that can be ruined by being mistaken for craft services in a letter written in seventeen sixty two to the italian scientist. Giambattista macharia franklin described a musical instrument. He had designed that made use of thirty-seven cups to help you.

"gibson" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"When she walked in the room, you knew she was there and you needed to pay attention. Or, she got your attention. So she had that presence she was also. I would say there was forlorn or disappointed that. In the in the eighties when so many people were becoming touring pros for resorts or Coming to. Be Aficionado, the tennis. So here was somebody that had won the won Milan and you have one woman in the US Open twice what was not being invited to do anything. Additionally. If she was being invited, it was because. Historically. Today. African. American women make less than white women and women in general make less than men. So in the Totem Pole, we're at the bottom. So, in the tennis world, her accomplishments were number one. Nobody was doing anything tennis. Whether, it's from the commentary standpoint or anything had won back to back Wimbledon and the US Open. So if she was sometimes. To do something, they offered her a crump. In her attitude and her conversation with me been I'm a champion. I should get the whole cookie and not settle for crumbs. So it was a bit of conundrum because then that capture out of the game. and. Other people that had not achieved what she had achieved. Get the whole cookie and more. So, there was I don't know if it would be bitterness but remorse or. You know it's it's it's it's a bit pill to swallow I would say. what she was also very giving. Of Advice and. Understood where her place was on the continuum of tennis. and. You know she made I remember we were in Africa at I was playing in a tournament and she was also part of an exhibition that we did. and. So. She was talking about my generation that you know basically the she broke down the door. So that I can get what I was getting and that the next generation after me would get even more. So she sort of understood what she did the heavy lifting. And now everybody else was gonNA reap the benefit. And that's important for people to remember so. In you know the the The harvest the Horn of plenty that thing And how it's really narrow at the end. But then as it goes out, you get the whole bountiful few fruit. So she was at that little in piece. where it all started and each generation because then invaded understand. Okay. So I, got it. Then I gave it to Xena, who gave you the chance to who gave you to Madison who gave it to slow or what? Whatever the continuum anyway. Now it's uncle at Koko. More and more and more. But we all need to remember we couldn't have started without Elsia. And wants uplifting and inspiring and sad. Depressing and eye opening interview with the. With Leslie Allen a wonderful perspective on Alpha Gibson and and what she meant an means to to the world of tennis can. Just a completely. Wonderful. Account of her experiences and an amd contextualising of Gibson in sports history I should say by the way that. Leslie Allen founded and. Instrumental. In her own foundation, it's called win for life pro win for the number four at life pro dot com. She She runs workshops and coaching, and she develops life skills imperative to excel in today's world. Win for life teaches the skills to be bold to be brave and to be empowered. And those. Those words are also wealthy Gibson this I mean I take so many things from. From speaking to Leslie Allen. But I think the one thing that I think anybody can take inspiration from and I'm not wanting to and putting a really positive spin. What is a really desperately tragic sad story But if there's one piece of inspiration than I, feel like. He can take in Gibson Story. It's the despite existing in a world which constantly told her. She was worth less. That she was worth less than her. than her. White competitors that she was worth less than any white folk worth less than male fake. She still believed in her own worth. She knew her own worth. She had this great sense of Own Valley And I can't imagine the strength it took to have that. But I'm bowled over by it. And and Leslie's account some we left left it in pretty uncut because it feels like it covers so much in terms of how is. Life both the happy times, the breakthrough and the sadness of it all. and. It also tells the story of how far things have come and the. That elsia Gibson did in order to create opportunity for all of those that followed and she succeeded fully in that regard because we have the evidence before us today with Venus and Serena Williams and Coco. Golf. And yet at the same time how far things still have to come. And we You know you don't need a tennis podcast to tell you that but. There are examples all around us and and I just. Ungrateful to at least of Woken up to the importance of of listening to the accounts of people that do know what it's like and to read the accounts of people that were there and around the Gibson and can tell her story for us to be able to help to tell it to you yet Leslie Allen, saying that things haven't changed in terms of things that draw fixing probably still going on at the lower levels of tennis out the Gibson's legacy as the USDA president at the time said when when she was honored in that two thousand, seven ceremony is that whenever? A minority touches a tennis racket now that that will start without out the Gibson and You know there were. There were five percents of tennis new come at the time where minorities now thirty percent, and so the has been this arc of progress. But to here, let's talk about how it wasn't just wasn't just click your fingers and suddenly. Suddenly, everything was better with we still learning was still trying to improve and to know what? Let's the Allen Chanda Rubin and all the other players had to go through. But the fact that they were able to go through it because they gibson had had kind of done it I, done it before them and. That is that is a legacy to the sport and that, and that will never you can't take that away and thankfully. I really do want to stress the importance of that statue that is that the Jean King National Tennis Center in front of the Authorized Stadium. That is so important says the Allen said their four starting conversations I'm forgetting people to learn her story and. I was I was reading the king was really pressing to. Was One of the people pressing to get that statue put up..
"gibson" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"Caught off guard by in a press conference you know they're expecting questions about forehands and backhands matches, and that kind of thing, and you do see it sometimes when they get asked a question on a topic, not expecting that they can kind of just freeze and shut down a little bit and I'm sure I'm sure he probably did know who gives Gibson walls but he didn't feel able to talk about it, and that is I think an illustration of the fact that has as you've been saying. historisches hasn't been told enough so that it's kind of right there in the forefront of their mind in a way that it should be. So he was Alpha Gibson You've done some some extraordinary research that that we've all read. I've watched. A film American mostow theory of the last couple of days David been listening to some other rival podcast, which we will accept in the name of research. But Black Mark Against Your name David. who was healthy Gibson most she was she was born in South Carolina in one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty, seven. But she she later moved to New York with her family during the Great Depression. To I think the family was sort of. Seeking economic benefits moving to to New York and sheep she. McCain. A product of the the streets of Harlem. She was in her own words a street kids she she dropped out of schools yet. She ended up completing high school I think in her early twenties she started high school, the age of eighteen 'cause she kind of just skipped it. Throughout her teenage years and she started playing paddle tennis on the streets of Harlem. That's how she she got into tennis. She was not very sporty played played all sorts of different sports. Thinks. She had a a tough and complicated relationship with her father. He opened the east to tell her. I learned from the the film that. He wanted to son and he had wished that she were boy and he was just GonNa treat you as a boy given that she wasn't one. And East, two stories of him taking up to the roof of their apartment and. Boxing with a genuine knee fist vising with her to try and as he put, it toughened her up. And it's funny. There are a lot of, as you hear people start to talk about out there is we will do what we're hearing Moose of significant people they like into her to a to a boxer. And those sort of street fighting qualities coming out. Coming out. In tennis. Yeah and that's something that she was well aware of but it's I suppose that's not that wasn't an uncommon story for people if the agent at that time, but it's a pretty extraordinary to come from a family of sharecroppers in in South Carolina job considered just just one step away from slavery really to, and there's there's a whole lot of story in between will come on bit to come from that sipping professional tennis player. Just alone is pretty extraordinary and I think it's important to mention here that the USDA at the time was the US l.. Ta and it was A. It was an all white organization. Black people were not allowed to play in US LTA tournaments and A. A rival Tennis Association the American Tennis Association the ATA was formed in Nineteen sixteen with the mission really of promoting tennis among black people and the once she picked up the game was playing on that tool and Dominating I think she ended up winning the national eighty-eight titled Ten. Times. But, it was wall she was playing on that that she was. that. She was spotted by Huber Eaten and Robert. Johnson Dr Johnson as as he's known and they realized that they were watching the Gibson who was a woman of. Great scale and they believe someone that could kind of transform the sport that I love, which was tennis and. Then, mission was to kind of find a young black player who was able to integrate the white world of tennis and they knew that it had to be a good player because they knew that that was the only sort of plan that would be accepted in that world they had to prove themselves. With a talent and with their skill and they chose. Gibson they they realized potential and keep some went to live with Eaton? And his wife during school year practicing on his core attending high school and then, and then Gibson with spend the summer traveling around this eighty-eight tennis circuit with Dr Johnson and. Steadily, Gibson's game improve and she reached the point nine, hundred fifty where she was really good enough to be playing on the main US Outta or rather than just the ATA tool. But there was there was still a barrier that had to be broken down. As, funny. One of the things that struck me about that, her involvement with the a which of course was for exclusively black tennis players was that she was an outlier even within the black tennis world because An and. This is something that I got from the. Documentary. The E, there was a certain class snobbery in the it was for the black bourgeoisie was for the Black Intelligencia and she was none of those things. So not only was she and obsolete I. Just by virtue of being a black person, she was also an outlier within the the. Should have been her her quarter of the sport. It wasn't she was. She was an outside on on every front and I dating it's possible not to. Understate. The significance of Dr Johnson in her development because he's somebody that that comes up repeatedly in her story he was also. Important to author Ashen and Leslie Allen who will will will hear from an yeah. He was overseeing an extremely significant person but as you say Matt. Until nineteen fifty, there was this huge obstacle a huge wool in the way of her. Properly, becoming a will not even a professional tennis play just competing in tennis at the highest level and it took a white woman. To change that it took alice marble, who was she the world number one at the time. I think she was the American number one I'm not sure world number one was a thing. That she was the top ranked American tennis player. She had status in cachet within the sport. Richard Evans the. The tennis journeys we'll be hearing from a bit later. Told me a story which sounds like. It will need its whole own podcast by alice marble being some sort of spy jury, second? World. War. Possible tennis relived episode on that in the future. But Alice Marble wrote a letter in American tennis American Lawn Tennis magazine. That said a portion of it said if tennis is a game for Ladies and gentlemen, it's time we acted a little more gentle people and less like sanctimonious hypocrites. If Alpha Gibson represents a challenge to the present Corp of women players, it's only fair that they should meet that challenge and one month. Later out the Gibson was admitted to the US National Tennis Championships Forest Hills, what the tournament that would later become the US Open when tennis became professional. And she became the first ever black player to compete and she went on to compete at Wimbledon. The next year. What strikes me through all of that storytelling and reading upon it is is that Combination of the activism of Alice marble the intervention. that. She. Does she has there in order to to force hands, but also the need for this this diplomacy from from out the Gibson and from Mr Johnson and the people that are trying to prepare and enable her to to infiltrate this. This sport that just doesn't allow black people to play it and. If they only were getting full on head-on and trying to break the wolves down with with. Fury in activism, it wasn't going to work. It has to be married with with the diplomacy in order to be accepted at the same time, and that's one of the most fascinating elements to me of both out there Gibson Anna thrashes story that there wasn't a single way in order to achieve the goal that eventually had in order to break into the sport and and to be accepted and Tim, and this was a moment showing. Does that quote isn't there that Dr Johnson was preparing for a world that didn't want us And I and I think there's something that we can. We can all learn from Alice Mobile's intervention that. Black people shouldn't have to dismantle the problem that they didn't create. And I think white people can and must help and marble is a is is an example of that and together they were stronger.

Point Yeah it's very different what we're doing today and what we're doing with the Arthur Ashe podcast as well. When we were doing the Roland Garros relived Wimbledon the Olympics, they were all about events or matches or moments in time specific moments in time when we came up to realizing that the US Open for stop was going to happen and we really don't have two weeks worth of shows to fill much as I'd love to come up with twenty wonderful matches and memories which no doubt we will get to in the. List of Twelve Pete Sampras much is that he submitted for the short lift. US Open relived and fifteen Jimmy Connors matches. Including all seven from all from. Sorry. All five from nine hundred, ninety one. But When we came to to look at this and we started to try to think well, what what should we do I personally suddenly realize the the gaping chasm mind knowledge in my reading of the Games history and I think particularly Alpha Gibson I feel ashamed not to know what I now know and what we want to do with this show. Is Tell, the stories that we've discovered and to properly tell the history as best as we can. I. Think we all knew that line first black woman to play the US Open and win Grand Slam titles but I'd never properly engaged with that line or really understood what that actually. Meant or considered what she actually had to overcome to become that because tennis was this elitist sport at a racially segregated time in America. So it's an extraordinary thing that tennis was used as AVIK BY A. Gibson and now thrash. To advance the black race and I'd never really. Never really thought about that before how how, what, a, what a strength of character and what a special talent it took to be able to achieve as a black person in in that white world and it's just been. Just been happening really to have read and sort of spent time. In their lives over the last few over the last few days and weeks doing this research and and it felt very necessary and timely as well. Absolutely it is timely. It feels like the right. Right moment to be doing this I mean there's never it's never been a wrong moment to do it and we. Probably, should have done it sooner but this is a very important moment. In the civil rights movement in the black lives matter movement and two. Quite Billie Jean King via Mary Carillo you have to know your history or your destined to repeat it. So this is an attempt by us to get to know. The sports, really integral part of the sports history and yet just to. Reemphasize what David was saying. They're shame shame. Not previously having enough of an appreciation of the Gibson in her significance my second USA. Even as a fan was in two thousand seven. Previously been in two thousand and four times with my dad's just little jolie to new. York. And the opening ceremony that year. On it out the Gibson because it was the fiftieth anniversary of her first title at the US Open. She went back to back titles fifty seven and fifty eight and aretha Franklin song at that opening ceremony she she sung respect. And of course, I knew ether frankly. Very very excited to to see her and to sing along to respect and try and get my face on the jumbotron. But I had no idea twenty year old me twenty, one year old me I didn't know about the IT Gibson was and Ko is only twenty one but I had been a tennis fan for a long time and I'm not sure I ever heard her name before or if I had. Not registered it and not thought to myself you should. You should find out who that person is and what the significance is. Say I respectively very ashamed about that, but I did enjoy a Retha. And you weren't alone not knowing who out there Gibson was do we want to bring up the federal quote not to throw him under the bus but what we ourselves under the bus I? Federal join us the IT's representative of the wider. Misunderstanding or lack of knowledge of the tennis world of of certainly my generation and and yours and Roger Federer's parts of those straddles. The fact that he did not really know who she was when he was asked about a legacy. He said she was before my time. What's the exact quote? I, think you said you're putting me on the spot. I don't know who that is. I think is the quote because it was before my time and look he.

"Hi Everybody Debbie Gibson here. Welcome to the Rhino podcast. Thank you we've been. We've been trying to do this for how long now? I know it's been a while. And the good news is it's because they've had one of the craziest most amazing career years. I've had I feel like in decades and had no time for the past year. So it's like that is happy. Reason reason we will accept that are now we will accept that. Okay here we go. We were determined to make it happen. We're going slash long island meets Queens. So let's start with where in Brooklyn Benson her sped. I only lived there 'til I was too move to Long Island. Yes we have to say. Long Island that was at age to yes. So do you remember anything about Benson Hers Because Benson Country Actually Remember Brooklyn? I I have a very strange memory. I mean like a strangely good memory in general of things from my childhood so I very very specifically remember this block party because block parties. Were big and we lived in the attic of my grandparents place so like. I was a third kid so my parents were up there with like the one bedroom apartment and the three kids and I remember the block party and what I remember. And this was like foreshadowing of what was to come with my very tenacious personality and a bit mischievous. I grabbed a hotdog from like the hotdogs. Guy And went into neighbor's house wandered away from my parents and was like hi and I was sitting at their kitchen table eating my hotdog while my parents were in a panic did not where I went and when they finally found me I was. I remember the feeling and like looking at them. Like with a big deal. I just got a hot dog. Came a really house like I was very independent that way. That is my biggest memory of Brooklyn. So we're not going to go necessarily in the right order but I wanna get here really early because there's a difference between growing up in a musical family and then the story of Your Dad and the being quote singing orphan in far rockaway. Would you take that a little bit? Yes so my Dad Daddy. Joke Gibson was put in the foster care system and spent his entire childhood in a boys. Home with a hundred other. Boys It was really a Catholic boys home. In fact two different couples wanted to adopt him in at the time. They didn't let them adopt him because they were Protestant and the methodist because they weren't Catholic better for him to remain. I guess yes so kind of crazy but that those were the times and so he found music or music. Found him in this home. And one of the Brothers brother Frank Spring men and by the way I remember him so vividly because he was my friend. He was my pen pal. I remember eight years old. Writing him letters him coming to visit And he gave me this amplifier and microphone and these things from the home that he was eventually replacing. You giving away and and So he was kind of like a grandfather figure to me so he took my dad and three of the boys under his wing and started them singing barbershop and they were on name. That tune and Joe Franklin. I eventually won a spot on the Joe Franklin show in talent contest and so I was on it like you know. You're on like three in the more that shows on like the night. I'll bring it full circle in a minute. I tell kids like I. You know I've been a judge on this show America's most musical family and when they're disappointed they didn't win. I said listen. The prize is you got to be on television. Performing and random people like that literally was a prize. I won once and it was on. You know to show that was on the middle of the night so my dad was on all of these shows and I still have forty five records that they made and they did this. Incredible barbershop rendition of the Ten Commandments. It was like I. I must honor. God can honor his name. Bulbul and my dad was the base. She looked like Ritchie Cunningham. Look like Ron Howard. As a kid and saying base and Yeah so I got a lot of my love of music and I think any innate vocal ability from my dad. He's a really incredible singer still. He's got this crooner's voice and he's carefree out of his own way. Which is the biggest lesson that he gave me as a vocalist because I'm very cerebral and I get my own way. And he just goes for it. He just relaxes enjoys it. So good.

Shows Making guest appearances and what I learned is the level of her talent and her musicianship when you think pop artists you just think well she goes in the studio she sings but there is so much more depth to Debbie Gibson and this is a two parter because we talked for a long time and it's myself and executive producer John Hughes at Rhino headquarters with Debbie Gibson. How was it hanging out with her? What was she like to hang out with? She's bubbly. She's fun and well. I felt pretty good because she is a born and bred New Yorker.

"Gibson. You know it's kind of crazy to me. How much like he seemed to flash last preseason. He was making plays <hes>. Maybe everything was perfect. Obviously he thought that mike upon closer view but still like he was. I think he led the team in receiving receiving last preseason like he was he was making plays he showed that he had some and for innings offense that sorely lacked element last year they were down to using kamar more akin in markus wheaton point in even putting josh perkins a tight end wide receiver the fact that gives him couldn't get on the field in that situation where there was no one in front of him a that was pretty damning. I thought that was pretty as a bad sign for shelton gibbs yeah. I don't think i i think that's not just a thing where the coaching eighteen staff is just being stubborn like they just really did not trust him at all. It was frustrating because one catch that he did have last year for like forty eight yards so even if you can't trust them my asked one of them out there just because at least he could do something come back in is giving you like nothing like like okay. You can trust them out there but he was terrible and he certainly can't do do that. So <hes> kind of unfortunate for gibson obviously now being waived injured. You will be subject to waivers in anyone claims him you know maybe maybe of the us with the the jets who knows in if not he'll revert to the eagles injured reserve list so he will go on i._r._a. Passes through waivers i would assume from there that heels might recent injury supplemental tame it should be noted that you can't ever actually cut an injured player you have to write onto a settlement with empty not cut them tough luck for gibson if he stayed healthy could potentially competed for a six receiver spot if the eagles are gonna keep that many but now it looks like it can be either mark and michelle or charles johnson or greg ward or less likely carlton agassi fighting one of those spots again if the eagles even keep that many so that's the only real thoughts i have on that. Are you excited about bruce ellington. Possibly coming to town the design of i guess they would signed him right especially like you know they're. They opened the roster spot with getting rid of. I don't know they they brought in ciprian two months ago in here. We are yeah. That's true but it just kind of funny to me. They opened the roster spot by cutting gives an end. They fill it with a quarterback. Instead then then the news comes out that they worked at <unk>. I i guess if they really wanted to ellington. They wouldn't have let him left philly so i guess that isn't happening and if it does it's clearly just a can't body yep. That's what it is was sojourn shelton and <hes> real tongue-twister there. She sells out on the sea shore. <hes> shelton l. c. stores by the seashore okay so you got it <hes> yes so i it's just the can't think we've seen this with the team. Doing a bunch of these moves like bringing announced l._s. Springing a jana harris in all these guys who are kind of just filling up some reps <unk> own in a ula harold and making that trade so that those kind of things that you lay herald being brought it on the trade which is interesting to allow these guys just just kind of make it man but moving on to the two who practices that have gone down in the past two days. I think the first order of business should be some injury updates since we're doing housecleaning here what's up with guys like rodney macleod day. Sean hall picked up a knock in the in the first preseason game. The vinny curry had like some sort of sickness blank countess's another one. What's the injury report hort looking like for the eagles today yes..

"In Austin, Texas. The group is headed by Michael Gibson, co founder and chairman and Willett Jackson co founder and vice chairman in black America Ruthie spoke with Gibson regarding purchase. And the future of the publication is been two years since we last spoke so give our audience little background about yourself. Were you born race? I grew up in Mississippi down in Biloxi, and I moved to Texas in nineteen seventy nine here in Austin. And I pretty much have been here in Austin says nine hundred seventy nine intended Jackson state, Jack state have. Undergraduate degree in computer science from Jackson state university. And what was your favorite scub- subjects while you're in school, math, computer science? Really? Yes. And when you moved Ouston did you come to work for him or an idea? I was fortunate enough to land the position with IBM right out of college. And I stayed with them for the next twenty one years, and what brought you to the point that you all found it clearview. I think it was we collectively my partner, and I will Jackson wanted to do something special. We wanted to do something more entrepreneurial space. And so we found it your group to be their vehicle to make acquisitions into other industries. How do you go about putting an investment group together? We have a a process that we use. Typically, we have a number. Of companies that we're looking at on a continual basis we sought through those companies to try to figure out which ones had the best financials, which ones make sense for us. And then we work closely with the financial industry and with the sailor to work a deal. So you are using you ause money of someone else's money is always good to use someone else's money. We had initially had to use some allow money a seed money, but typically in a deal, we try to use someone else's money. Now, you all the new owners of every and every jet, but you also own other companies tell us about in other companies before we started talking about any jet. So we own a bus company. It's called star line luxury coaches headquarters in Seattle, we have about one hundred fifteen buses it's a charter buses, and they support customers throughout the west coast from Oregon down through all the way down to California. So we've owned it for a little bit over two years. It's a great company. We also have a financial kind of wing. So we made some investments into some companies really kind of loans those are doing quite well, and then we just sold a staffing company. So we're out. Out of the staff and business, and now, we're really focusing on media. So what made you all invest in this bus company, really as a great opportunity? He was is mentioned we look at a number of different opportunities. This company had a great management team. It had great financials is in an industry that is ripe for consolidations. And so, you know, all those things came together and made it a good opportunity for us. How did you and your partner get together head, you know, we'll at four time and I met Willard in twenty fourteen in. I mean, it was just kindred spirit. Both of us seem to have the same goals, and we have some complementary skills. We were working together on a couple of deals, and we discovered that we have a lot of things in common. Why not go take it a step further and create cvt are the clearly group what made. Did you all become interested in purchasing every jet when it became available? You know, it's an iconic brand, right? Been around for seventy years. It is probably one of the most sought after brands in in our industry. And so for us. It was a couple of things the brand itself the the historical nature of avenue and jet and we had a good team. So it all kind of made sense force was it somewhat overwhelming. Once you out got in that process of of knowing that you just stated the conic brand itself. But the responsibility Jettas had as far as informing the African American community in the world is been it's been one of them exhilarating experiences. I can tell you anyone could have it is such a pleasure for me to travel around the world. L and to be able to to tell the avenue jet story, but be a part of the future of what we're going to do with ebony and jet, and I just can't tell you..

"Dollars. So they're making incredibly good revenue and margin on those guitars, but at the expense of bringing new people into the market and new people into the Gibson brand itself. And that being said, there's a mother competitors who position themselves to get that entry level market. Fender which is their biggest rival has traditionally offered a lot of cheaper models for entry level. There's niche makers like Reverend guitars outta which is out of the Detroit area. Now out of the Toledo Ohio area. They make really nice guitars at less than thousand dollars. And I see more and more pro working type players going with those niece brands and some other brands instead of your classic Gibson, which which spells long-term trouble for them as well. Then Niedermayer's turn to the top fifty last. He brought to our interview. There's probably two artists in the top fifty today that even really play guitar one is Taylor swift. And the other is ED's Sheeran and both of them. Don't. Gifts. It's like me all the way to number fifty three to get to a real electric guitar based song, and that was country music. That was Kenny Chesney. I don't think they've done a good job of cultivating influencers. One of the things that's difficult for them is they've been trying to invest a lot of in innovation and in one of the things that they're kind of famous or infamous for is over the last few years as they've been trying to market a self tuning guitar. So they were trying they basically created a technology where the tuning pegs tune themselves, and I've used it, and I've chatted with a number of people who have and nobody really has a very high opinion of it. And it's one of those things that they're trying to slap technology on something. That's otherwise perfect. It's it's it's a beautiful design, and that type of technology is not bringing more people to that product. David Robertson, grew up less than one hundred miles away from Gibson former headquarters in Kalamazoo, Michigan. He's a former guitar player who once owned 1937 Gibson arch top he's also the author of a book called the power of little ideas, which argues that companies often take too narrow view of innovation. They focus on radical changes instead of smaller complementary ones that could have a big impact. Researching this story, I realized how many ways that the company had touched my life. And how sorry I was to see it going through bankruptcy. I mean, it really is. I Kana Camerin company that is dying from self inflicted wounds. Gibson back in the late sixties was an Ecuadoran company. They're owned by an Ecuadoran conglomerate called Norlin, and that company was making decisions from Ecuador about the US market and guitars in the US market, and it was making some really bad decisions, and basically almost put Gibson out of business and then some guitar lovers. Bought the company and over the next eight years grew at thirty percent per year every year for eight years from eighty six through ninety four and they did it through some. I think some smart acquisitions, right? They they went into things like. Steinberg's which is high end type of guitar Dobro. The company makes it his called OEM. I. Later, they bought drums, which kind of makes sense and Baldwin pianos which again, kind of makes sense, right? I mean, you could see how company would want to do those things and how they were related, but then they started to become more acquisition happy they reached farther and farther away from their core, which was great guitars. But I think that those acquisition did something that was fundamentally more dangerous for Gibson. And that is they took their eye off the ball, and what's Robertson's number one piece of advice to Gibson's new CEO? If I was sitting down with the new CEO, I would say go talk to these little guitar shops. I talked to one of these guys today, and he said, I don't even do business with Gibson. They ask for too much business. They make me guarantee one hundred and fifty thousand dollars in annual sales, and they will choose two thirds of the imagery that I have to carry in. And and was just too big. And ask I think that's exactly the wrong approach. I think Gibson. If it was smart would go in and look at these guitar shops around the country and around the world and say, how can I make this this small business successful not just from selling better guitars, but also from helping them run their

"But at a lower cost point using lower quality stuff maybe or maybe not as precious materials maybe that's better way of putting it they were frequently considered a sub brand of gibson and sort of looked at as the entry level for guitars that followed the gibson style so that maybe you would wanna go and get an episode before you went and got a gibson because gibson's really expensive and episodes were less so but there are plenty of electric guitar experts who feel that this era led to some really bad decisions among major electric guitar companies not just gibson they point to cost cutting measures that were meant to bring down the manufacturing expense for guitars to make them easier to produce in larger numbers and to make them less breakable really there were saying why can what can we do to make these cheaper to produce make it easier to produce a lot of them and to try and reduce the number of customers who bring back these instruments that are under warranty and then we have to replace something and the way you do that typically is that you start cutting back on features you start simplifying the the guitars so that there are fewer things to break and it's faster and easier to make them and you might take some liberties when you're making designs things that allu the're would not have considered the most frequent way i saw it referenced during my research was that the design of instruments was taken away from luthier musicians and handed over to accountants and being counters for gibson this era stretched into the early nineteen eighties when two companies called rooney pace group and piso electric products moved to make a hostile takeover of norlin rooney pace group was a brokerage and private investment firm with a specialty for helping companies preparing to hold an initial public offering or ipo that's when a private company turns into a.

"They give up different qualities of sounds so it all depends upon what kind of sound do you wanna go for what is the tone that you're looking for and that would help determine which pickup you would most want to go with it's not necessarily that the gibson model was superior defender it was just different but the marauder was also a bit of a frankenstein's monster the marauder had the body of a less politician gibson guitar so it was shaped in the same way as a les paul gibson but the head at the end of the neck was not from a les paul edition guitar from a flying viga tar so it was a different style head than what you would normally see with that style of body and the qatar had a pair of humbug pickups now i mentioned the humber in the last episode but did not go into much detail slim give you a quick rundown now as i said in the last episode electric guitars have at least one coil of conductive wire typically wrapped around a permanent magnet the strings on electric guitar are ferro magnetic and the area above the picnic pickup gets magnetised just through proximity so because those strings are close to a permanent magnet they get a little there magnetized to a small degree and as those strings vibrate they create a fluctuating magnetic field over the coil of conductive wire that's inside the pickup this induces a change in voltage and thus current to flow through this coil of conductive wire that current can be sent out to an amplifier and then two speakers to produce sounds you could also do lots of effects on the signals and create all sorts of different things like the store should and stuff but what does that have to do with the humbug over well i'll tell you in just a second but first let's take a quick break to think our sponsor.

"The body of the guitar and then would be secured by glue so if you remember in the first episode i talked about the anatomy of guitar you have the body that's the part that has the sound hole in it for an acoustic guitar you have the neck that's the part that joins onto the body and it's the part that the strings are are strong against in have frets where you can press the string against the frets to make different notes and then you have the head of the guitar that's where these strings attached to the tuning pegs and you can tune the strings so where the neck and body would meet you could do what is called a set in neck joint where it has sort of the seamless look to it where the the neck of the guitar sets into the body of the guitar but the miranda was different it was a bolt on which is what it sounds like once you fit the neck to the tar body you secure the neck to the body with screws or bolts so fender guitars for frequently bolt on neck guitars and gibson had usually opted for set in neck guitars so the marauder was a new direction some people said oh they're kind of copying fender and some guitar said that it actually sounded more like a fender guitar than a gibson guitar which was due to the difference in the pickups that they used so if you remember in my last episode i talked about what a pickup is now we'll talk a little bit more about it again in a second but gibson pickups have sort of a more mellow sound to them typically than fender ones do fenders have a little more not twangy but there's a little more of a metallic sound to fender pickups and it's not the one is better than the other necessarily.

"At the time the new way of doing business ended up hurting gibson and included a fundamental change in the way the company approached products before the acquisition gibson had a single customer that was cmi gibson didn't sell directly to people gibson sold their products to their parent company cmi which was a distributor so here's how it would work gibson would manufacture musical instruments and then essentially would sell them to see him i at a profit so whatever it costs gibson to make the musical instrument they would mark that up a bit so they can see see a profit sell that to see him i see him i would distribute those musical instruments at a marked up price to make their profit so each stage the price of the tar or whatever it may be it was a mandolin or a banjo or whatever would go up so from gibson to see him i price goes up from siham i to say a retail store somewhere the price goes up and the price goes up a little bit more to the end customer the musician so that explains partially why these prices would get pretty high of actually because you're talking about several different middlemen that have to get their cut before it ever gets to the customer if gibson were selling directly to the customer the prices might be a little lower not necessarily significantly lower because gives them was always in the business of making high end qatar they're guitars were known as some of the flagships in especially in the electric guitars it was essentially gibson and fender where the two big names and so they could charge a premium because they were selling the premium products everyone else was kind of selling either slightly lower cost lower quality ones or knockoffs and that was about it well the gibson would take the profit that they made by.
