Allison keyes, CBS News. A transportation department program to remove commercial truck drivers who use marijuana is working. 41,000 commercial truck drivers tested positive for marijuana in 2022 that's up 32% from 2021, one reason why more states in the district have decriminalized marijuana or made it legal for medical purposes. However, commercial drivers can't use marijuana under any circumstances. Transport topics senior reporter Eric Miller. There is a return to work system.

"If you gave it, that's a UA record. Most of them, a lot of his work. Yeah, absolutely, because when Barry Gordy was first producing a Motown wasn't in a position to distribute anything. Yeah. Oh, and then you played a buster Brown song one night. Was that called, I'm going, but I'll be back. Yeah Oh, God, that's a great show. I've never heard it before. Yeah. You know, that's my frustration too. There are tens of thousands of songs I've never heard that I know. I would just kill to hear. And some of them, like the buster Brown, yeah, that got some airplane, but there's some where probably never got any airplane, but still would have been the best record ever, and I'll never get to hear it. Well, try unbreakable love for me if you would by Mark Johnson. And if you can do Kathleen by Wally Lewis, I would be great. I've taken up a lot of time, but it's been a good while since I've talked. Yes, and you need to call more often. Yes. So I'm going to hold you to that. Okay. And thank you so much for letting me plug dot com. All right, good deal. All right. Okay, thanks. Good night. Yeah, so that's great. And when somebody does that they're doing it as a labor of love, clearly, it's not the kind of thing that's going to make any big bucks, but it's wonderful when you see that kind of stuff and here it actually. All right, so we got Stacy, we got Donna, we got Leo. We got a couple of James and we got, well, maybe time for you. We'll see. Now where were you last night? It was a desert. I'm Raleigh

"FM 97 7. A lot of us listen to podcasts a read books on how to become successful, but one very driven pioneer of the palouse found success repeatedly back in the 1800s. Northwest journalist Jeff burnside shares what he discovered while writing his new book cash up Davis, the inspiring life of a secret mentor. Here's Jeff's conversation with the Lisa jaffee. Jeff, you call homesteader and pioneer cash up Davis. One of our state's first national celebrities. What was it about this charming but brash British guy that intrigued you enough to team up with his great grandson to write a book? Yeah, his great grandson is Gordy Davis. He's a friend of mine and he kept telling me about this great grandfather of his cash up Davis. I said, that's an incredible story. Why don't you write a book about it? And he said, well, you're the journalist. Let's do it together. So we went on this journey really of discovery about Gordy's great grandfather, the secret mentor he never met. And what we learned really really opened Gordy's eyes. Let's go into some of the things his mentor did because he goes on this audacious venture and decides to create a hotel a lavish hotel really in the middle of nowhere in the palouse where there's just a few thousand settlers who can't even afford this lifestyle. Yeah. Everyone told him he was crazy to spend his fortune doing this. But, you know, he was obsessed really with this vision he had of building this lavish hotel on the top of steptoe view. You've been there. And there were no roads, no electricity, no running water at the top. Cash app had made a fortune. I don't want to see a four G is a wealthy man from his wheat and his ranching, and then he opened the stagecoach stop, which was wildly popular. That's where he became a celebrity. And so when the trains came in, all the stagecoaches went out of business. So he pivoted, he had always dreamed of this hotel. So he went for it. You know, he'd always succeeded in everything he'd done in life. And that's kind of a life lesson that we're taking one of many that I think he became blind to the risk and reward in this particular venture. But you know, all great decisions are sometimes half crazy. So this might be a successful people say, you have to be half crazy to be this audacious, as you say. This hotel that opens in 1888 closes just 16 years after that grand opening burns down in 1911, just a few years later, were the risks worth it and what it is great grandson Gordy Davis take away from this risk-taking relative that got him so emotional. I think that he did not see cash up as a failure just because the hotel went out of business. And in fact, I've talked to a lot of the cache of descendants who feel the same way there's still immensely proud of cash app and the legacy he left, and don't false him for the fact that the hotel went out of business, that they really applaud him for trying it to begin with. Doing something that no one thought could be done. And yeah, while it was wildly successful on its opening day and maybe our first couple of years, it started to quickly fade the novelty fit wasn't easy to get up step to Butte in a horse and buggy. And so, you know, and it closed during the winters, the harsh winters over there. So yeah, it went out of business, but then beyond that, one of the life lessons Gordy took away was he was so determined to be successful that he kind of became a strange from his family. Another life lesson, you know, go for challenges, but don't forget what's important to you. The family was really his legacy that cash up never even probably considered. He thought it was his hotel and his money. And of course it wasn't. And we discovered that cash of his hotel went bankrupt and they literally did the sheriff's auction, you know, at the corner of the street and colfax and how humiliating for a guy advanced age wildly successful in life to have to face that kind of humiliation. The takeaway for every person who reads this? I think it's important to chase your dreams, don't listen to the doubters. Don't listen to the skeptics so that it's in your mind or among your friends and family. At the same

"Marvelettes and in some ways really got the short shrift at Motown. And they felt it too. And yeah, in the latter days come to find out they didn't get royalties either. She no shocked there. They weren't alone in that situation. That's for that's for sure. But what had happened is they were at Easter high and Gladys Wharton was 15 years old at the time, and she was in the glee club. And this was the fall of 1960, and she enlisted older glee club members, Catherine Anderson and georgiana Tillman and juanita coward. And she got Georgia dobbins who had graduated high school just the year before, to join her. And they were singing, they tried to come up with a name for their little group. They were saying to themselves, you know, we can't sing yet, so they came up with the cast and yet, as we can't sing yet. And then they changed him to the marvels, and there was a talent conscious in 1961, and they came in in fourth place. Now, the first three place winners got to audition for a Berry Gordy, and which at the time wasn't that big a deal because of course, you know, Tamil label wasn't that big a thing yet. But what was interesting is that the teacher who was spearheading the glee club said to the Motown people, you know, there's some fourth place winners here that you're going to want to hear. And so it was that they did a second audition and Brian Holland and Robert Bateman and Smokey Robinson and Berry Gordy, all were pretty impressed. And at the time, though, they were seeing other people's songs so Barry Gordy said, come back with your own composition And so it was that Georgia dobbins, the oldest gal in the group who had graduated by that point. Knew a local musician William Garrett, and he had an unfinished composition. It was a blues song called police mister postman. And she said, can I rewrite that? And he said, well, yeah, as long as I get songwriting credit if it becomes a hit. And so dobbins took the song home and that night, overnight, she transformed it into pretty much what here. And they go back to Motown and sing it. And of course, very, very gorgeous all for signing them. Well, you really, well, the problem was that georgiana dobbins, who wrote this, her father wouldn't sign the contract. He said, I don't want you in show business. And so even though she was the reason please, mister postman was the song that would debut the marvel at she wasn't in the group. And that left that left young 15 year old Gladys Wharton in full charge of the group. So she asked another insta graduate Wanda young to replace dobbins and it was that group that returned and Gordy said, well, yeah, we want to sign you got to change your name. And as I say that we're the mar vells at the time, they renamed them the marvelettes and signed them to tamla in July of 61. And then please, mister postman, was released on August 21st, 61, and it obviously was just a smash. And a follow up this success. They recorded twist and postman to take advantage of the twist dance craze, which shall be checkers, the twist had been rereleased, so they did that again. It was Gladys on lead. And it actually peaked at number 34 on the pop charts. So that's when they released that album, please, mister postman, and it just did nothing. That did not deter the boys at Motown. They released Playboy, and this was the second time that one of their singles was written by a band member. Because Gladys Horton wrote it and unlike pretty much like the other like policemen postman, what they did with Playboy is retooled it with other writers and upon its upon its release, it reached number 7. And then beachwood four, 5, 7, 8, 9, which Marvin Gaye was a co writer on that, got to number 17. And then they put out some albums that actually started to chart. And then the flip side of beachwood actually someday some way turned out to be pretty good thing for them because stations flipped it and it charted too and number 8 on the R&B chart snout. Barry Gordy had won him to finish high school, but that turned out not to be the case. And then they were, they were promised that they would have tutors, well, that never materialized. That was the end of schooling. But they were touring. And of course, Gladys Horton wouldn't have a parent who would object to her doing this because she was in foster care. She was a ward of the court and actually it was Esther Gordy who took her in and ultimately the group was bused all around to the motor town review shows and they had a number of top 40 hits and a strange I know peaked at number 49 and then wanting to coward left and she cited that she had a mental breakdown. She could not take touring and she apparently didn't do well on American bandstand and she said, you know what, I'm out of here. And so it was. So now juanita is out there's four girls left and they do locking up my heart, which was an interesting record because that was where Gladys Horton and Wanda young managed to share leads and it was the first one that they did that. And it was it did very well. And of course, the B side was forever, my favorite. And, you know, 64 was a problem. Now, it was a problem for a lot of reasons. For one thing here are the marvelous and they really are while they were the first girl group actually to go to number one as far as that goes and they were the first Motown family group to go to number one. That's for sure. But apart from what might be going on within the organization. And by this time, the supremes are getting more attention and Martha and the vandellas are getting more attention and they're feeling a little unloved. But really, there's a big problem because here comes the British invasion. And you had all the female bands, whether it's this or else or the raw nuts or whatever. Struggling to find hits. But meanwhile, Martha and the vandellas and the supremes, well, they're being promoted heavily. Much more heavily than the marvelous. There's a story about how the marbles were offered awarded our love go and they turned it down. That's actually mostly true what had happened is they were played where did our love go as a demo, and they were played too many fish in the sea as a demo, and they picked too many fish in the sea because it had all the music in the bongos and all that in the same time. They said, you know, we don't think where our love goes as hot. Well, probably not the best move, but apart from that choice, there was no doubt that the supremes and Martha and the band Ellis were getting more attention. So the marble, let's did reach the top 40 with Norman woodfield's too many fish in the sea again, reaching number 25. And that's about the time that Charli Atkins and maxime pal were hired. He was the choreographer and she was kind of the charm school lady to polish the dance moves and do all that. And meanwhile, georgiana Tillman married Billy Gordon of the contours and Wanda young, married Bobby Rogers of the miracles, and George had Tillman had to drop out. And that was very sad. She had been a longtime sufferer of sickle cell and she was diagnosed with lupus. So by early 65, she couldn't keep up with the recording sessions and her doctor advised her that she needed to leave performing, which is probably the best thing he could have done for her because she lived until 1980, which considering how sick she was was pretty amazing. So after that, that marvelous were a trio. Now, the marblers were a trio with Gladys Horton, absolutely the lead singer. Until mid 1965, when Juan de Rogers was chosen over her. Motown producers thought that her voice was more suitable and so now I'll keep holding on and danger heartbreak ahead and all this don't mess with Bill. Now we're into Wanda Rogers want a young territory. And so after don't mess with Bill smokey was mostly in charge and most of the marvelous singles featured featured Rogers on lead.

"If so, I'm not sure that I ever knew that. I used to hear rumors about that. You know, I don't know how true it was. Well, it was better than back in the day. She was born right in in Chicago, and right by Wayne state university, and where she was free of talent, so she was weird. And she left Motown and she never did get well, what happened there was really terrible, very Gordy at first. She was starting to act out because she wanted royalties, obviously. And I couldn't blame her. Right, you couldn't blame him. So you know, English might have got B and Jew from they manage. I mean, that demands you to layer with Ian label, Florence, listening. Oh, no, I was in Florence and was George goldner, but I mean, apparently it's this Hebrew israelite church that they belong to. But the deal with Mary wells is that Barry, that's when he hired and I thought this woman was wonderful. Linda greiner. She had goodbye cruel love, have you ever heard that? It's one of the best records ever. And it sounds just like Mary wells. And so they released it and then Mary wells started to behave. So very Gordy quashed the record and it's really a shame because there's one of the best records ever. And they got little rid of Linda because she was underage anyway. She's only like 17. But anyway, so Mary later came back with saying I want to leave. You know, you're not paying me, I'm going. And so he went to 2075, didn't you? Well, yeah, but here's what happened. Very Gordy wouldn't release her unless she signed over all her rights to royalties. Oh, wow. And she went mostly her step two back then. Yeah, well, she didn't get any of that writer's credit at all went to Berry Gordy because that was the only way he'd. Oh, no. Yes. What kind of deal did Brenda how do we get it over at Motown? You know, I don't know. Remember, she was an outsider because she was California. So she went to Motown here, you know. Give a little bit hurt. Of course. Quite a few hits, but I don't know how very good Pete is heard, you know. Yeah, absolutely. But as I say, she wasn't really in-house. And that made it a little different. Now, if how she got paid, I don't know. But being at arm's length, I think, was probably helpful to her. Although in 69, she left Motown and said she was retiring from the music industry. So I don't know how good it would have been, you know. Back in the day, people, we wouldn't think about the money we had mercy was just a chair and excitement and doing something you love to do. Well, that's right. Now originally she was on Donna. That was one of the labels like with Delphi that was owned by the guy who managed the kid who got killed. Richie valens. And so in fact, every little bit hurts was originally on Donna, which was a Delphi label. And then it was how Davis produced that. And that's how she met Barry Gordy. And she did that interestingly, Berry Gordy did something really good. He said, I will give you a recording contract, but only if you graduate from high school first. Yeah, it was nice. And a year later, he signed her. And then they released the first album every little bit hurts in 16 years. She went out in Detroit now. No, they were from like a tuscadero, California, like, I don't know why I thought she was very short. She and her sister, Lolita Holloway. I think it was no Patrice Holloway. Patrice Holloway. Who had do the Dell Viking in a couple other things. She and Patrice. So yeah, those were those were the two, but so in 69, when she left Motown, she retired, she returned to California and all her success was the 5 years at Motown, but she did not go back to that. Now, what was interesting is right after she signed a Motown, she was invited to be on the caravan of stars tour, like you say, they love touring, so that was Dick Clark. And she was the first Motown act to appear on shebang, which was a musical variety show that was not too big. And she was invited to open for The Beatles and of course, when I'm gone, was just a wonderful song. And you know, she wrote, you made me so very happy. Did you hear about Oprah Winfrey's father Dan? No, did he? Yeah, he had a date for him in town. I think he's from Tennessee. They had a big day for him in the 4th of July. And he was now at the 6th and 7th that he had dad, agency, the cause of death of legitimately Oprah Winfrey allows the wild and he had a big day for him in Tennessee on the board of July. Vernon, he would have been like, okay, he would have been like almost 90. So 89, 89. I think they see. That's what I figured. He was definitely definitely up there. So he got to see his daughter make her become a billionaire. Yes, he did, and you know, I'm sure that he wasn't expecting it. He was from Kasey esco, Mississippi. And I think her mother was from Milwaukee. So she lived in Nashville for a while. One more thing, Dan Bradley, when next time you tell the detective, saying that where when they have all these shootings, the people don't want to cooperate with the police giving them. They had a boy in Chicago with it, got killed, 8 year old boy. And they said he bad at saint Catherine's hospital. And they'd say it was over 200 shares in the car. You know, so many shares and the family is not cooperating, you know, they don't want to cooperate with the police or not. Well, I think there's a lot of people who have a checkered past that way. And sometimes. In the back of the head, he was 8 years old. But they say that it was so many bullets in the car, you know

"The country and where I'm Raleigh James, of course that's Martha and the van that was dancing in the street 1964 on Gordy number 8 on the R&D charts two on the pop charts mark in Chicago wanted to hear it as just a terrific hour opener and I often think in the quality control meetings they had at Motown where everybody would vote on what they thought I would think that this would be a hands down winner. Yeah, that was just a smash from the opening opening notes. I think anyway and even bigger when oldies as a format was so big because it made for a perfect hour opener as far as songs go. So there. All right, now, before we get back to sherry and to James, which we're going to do. I want to finish the flamingos that we're trying to anyway. We left the flamingos on deka, where they didn't want to be. And because deco didn't want to promote them because of course deca found out that the elite singer Nate had a deal contract with chess. And so it was going to languish and it did. So when the flamingos got the chance, they went to end. And it was Richie Barrett, who had brought the chantels to George goldner, who had to convince him. You got to take this group. And of course, it didn't hurt that not only had the flamingo has been in the Allen fried movies and been on stage with doctor Schiff repeatedly and the Apollo and everywhere else, so goldener didn't take a lot of convincing. And in fact, I think there were at the Impala when goldner signed along with Jerry butler and the crests and little Anthony and wade flemings. Yeah, and more. So it was that they wind up on end and the first session gave us lovers neighbors say goodbye, which was a hit, period. And no matter how you slice it or dice it. Now, by the way, check or noticed that, oh, I guess they can have hits. And so they went back to the vaults, and that's why when I said earlier that whispering stars, the record that Scottie had requested that it was recorded in 1955, but not released until 1959. That's because shekhar, even though they no longer had the group had the rights to the stuff they had previously recorded, so they figured, well, if they're having hits on end, why not? And so it was that whispering stars ranked fair. But keep in mind, when the reviews on that came out, this is 1959, and this was a record that was recorded in 1955. So N released more and more turned into by the end of April of 59, I only have eyes for you, which of course had been a pop standard years ago. And it was Nate's on lead on that the problem was the flip side. And it was just a smash. And at that point, George goldner releases an album, flamingo serenade, and there were a dozen standards on that like love walked in and begin to begin and I only have eyes for you, which was absolutely a pop standard. Where or when. And at this, at this point, the flamingos were definitely in a heavy duty pop direction. And that's what George goldner wanted because he knew that these records would sell. And he also had the role model of the platters who had at one point been the flamingos as we talked about not knowing there were Chicago flamingos. And they went from the doo wop stuff of who the Avi and Maggie doesn't work here anymore into smoke gets in your eyes and you saw what that did. So it wasn't lost on George golden or that that was the way to go. And so Alan fried brings out another movie, go, Johnny go, which was also April of 59. And yeah, guess who's in it, of course. The flamingos among others, and they're doing jump children. And that was, that was great. Now, it's interesting. The movie opened in April, but it didn't make it to New York theaters until the end of July. But nonetheless, I only have eyes for you, was absolutely unstoppable. And it was it was clearly their biggest hit. And it was number three on the pop charts and actually number three on the R&B charts. Number 11 on the pop charts, which is amazing to think that that record, which is so big and oldies circles never made number one, never made top ten on the pop charts. Number 11. And so meanwhile, remember those dark decades when decker wouldn't really promote anything? Well, here they are. They're saying, well, a lot of hips on end. And so they start coming out with records too. So it seemed like the flamingo said more records than you can imagine by summer of 59 when they're doing ten days at the uptown theater in Philadelphia, along with the Fiesta and Jesse belden and Clark in the drifters and Chubby Checker and Jerry butler. Yeah, really nice. And they were on the Dick Clark beach not show the Saturday night TV show doing I only have eyes for you and lovers never say goodbye. And again, the beauty of being on Dick Clark, whether it's American bandstand, or the beechnut show, was that you were going to get universal action across the country. It wasn't going to be a rolling hit. And so it was just great. In 59, man, they were unstoppable. And by 1960, the second album, flamingo favorites comes out. And that was standard and non standard. Everything from dream girl to besame mucho. And on and on. And that also was a well received album. And they're back at the Apollo with doctor jibe and everything's wonderful in 1961 is coming and we're almost done with our story. Yeah, the flamingos fell apart. Now what happened interestingly, and there's still on stage there at the Apollo and they're everywhere else and they're doing well and they're

"He gives me mine and says don't have your phone just come back to me when you want love baby baby don't you lift up and I don't even want you to open up again. I'm not a James and that is maple John. That's MAB LE. Mabel John and that is love Willie John's oldest sister and that was on tamla. In fact Mabel was the first female singer that Berry Gordy signed unto his what would be Motown, but Motown corporation anyway, although Tamil was the label at the time. And he co wrote that along with sister Gwen and Billy Davis and it didn't do anything. But it was a fine record. I thought, but Mabel was the oldest in the family and I think she's still alive. She'd be 91 years old this year. It actually she turned 92 at some point this year. I don't know what her birthday was, but in any event, she was born in bastard, Louisiana, and they moved to Arkansas a little while he was John a little bit of John was born Then they all moved the family. There's a lot of kids moved to a Detroit. And that's where she was working when she graduated high school in the 40s. She was working for an insurance company. Friendship mutual that Berry Gordy's mother ran. And later, she left the company and was in business college and all that, but she ran into misses Gordy, who told her, you know, my son berries right in songs now. He's looking for people to record them. So sure enough, they got together. And this was in the 50s and this continued, in fact, she was performing and it was Barry who got her in there. I'm sure at the flame bar, yeah, in fact she was there for the last show, Billie Holiday did. And then very wrought out Gordy records and she was signed to UA, which Barry did with a lot of his early artists before he had labels, but didn't release any of that. And then Gordy's only able tamla, when that started up, they put out the song, I just played for you. Who wouldn't love a man like that in 1960? And absolutely no success. And they did three or four others like that. Great records, actions speak louder than words and no love. And nothing happened. And they were backed by the miracles or the marvelettes or Marvin the vandellas are what would become the supremes. They were all doing background vocals. And after a while, within a couple of years, Barry Gordy realized that, you know, the future is in these kids, not in early blues artists. So he thinned the roster and that was it for Mabel. Mabel John. But she became a and did a lot of backing on the Ray Charles stuff. And then she signed with stacks and managed to get a chart record on the country charts that did pretty well, but it didn't crack pop. And they released several singles on her and none of them did anything. So she went back to the rails for a while and then she left secular music in 73 and was doing Christian gospel axe managing them and things like things like that. And she continued along that vein founding a charity for the homeless in Los Angeles and all that. And as I say, as far as I know, she is still alive in Los Angeles at 91 years old, so unless you have other information, that's what I think the story is. So 888-876-5593 Fran is an Austin.

"You still have a team on a mission. They lost the sewer or last year. And that's the kansas city chiefs and they are very good. They try to revamp that offensive line. Baltimore is still strong team but they might not make the playoffs this year in a very tough division and if they don't win a game like this i'm not i gotta go ahead and pick the but don't be shocked if baltimore win this game and salvage some pride. If they lose this game it could be a rough season in the charm city. We're talking with ryan. Anthony davis gordy sports or more locally and around the globe. Perhaps remember our little slogan now. It is national apple dumpling. Day apple an apple dumpling. with dumpling gang member. I tell you what i could eat. A good apple dumpling. Oh yum you put some vanilla ice cream on that bad boy. I'm doing a town. I suggest that you pass it on to your wife right away here. Perhaps that could be easy meal desert. Well i tell you what I already told her that. Today is apple dumpling. Day and our good. Gordon is going to send us a A baker's dozen of apple dumplings so she's excited. I appreciate that your question is. They came to pennsylvania. I in this country. But where do they originate. What country was that. England was it. Germany was at france was a denver. Where do they originate in europe. You know i. I'm probably leaning towards denmark here. But i'm gonna go with germany. I wish you'd gone with england. My wife is english and she's a all the more reason they're going to get to your faster. She makes a well. I i tell you what. she is. A fantastic baker. That's why i know that she knows how much we share with each other. Well that'd be great but you know she deserves the day off according to go ahead and send them. I'll give you my address. Thomas edison like gavel dumbly. You know that wow he. You'll leave the late. On in an apple dumpling. To did you play with plato. When you were young. I ate plato when i was young. Gordon yes there's national plato day and that originated in cincinnati ohio. The official plato name came about in nineteen fifty six. But you're going to tell everyone. Plato was actually used for some other purpose before became known as play doh that purpose was on ding cleaning wallpaper making pots. It was used to see a windows or plug tires. Why said bonding coming to see feel windows. It was actually used to clean wallpapers. They had difficulties with soot. Getting a wallpaper and the gentleman was involved with wallpapering. And that's what happened. Well i had naturally curly hair as the kid and misses. Mom would. Mrs mom davis would not let me have too much. Plato one i mixed the colors. And then i'd get it all through my hair and she'd have to try to take me to barbara and get it out. It was a big mess. So i don't get a lot of plato. We let our kids plato. And they they really you know they followed my footsteps and they make a mess with the two. So we've dan played recently but now that they're twelve and fourteen. It's not as bad when i share this yesterday. Most adults as they comet is parents did not prefer plano though. They allow their children to play with absolutely. I definitely agree. What a great market. Though man they make a lot of money on that stuff yes sir and it's been around for a lot of years now i did. I did eat it as a kid. But you're still here to talk about it. Yeah i think that's why in the way i am it is safe. We don't recommend it. But here's survivor plato. Yeah yeah i mean i. I'm toxic everywhere. I go so i guess. That's why go steelers all right. My man wave that terrible towel. It's going to be a nice weekend..

"That's kind of been the The way fitzpatrick's been used in the last The last five or six years you know. He is basically a backup quarterback that comes in and is able to lead the team all season long. He's a he's a nice luxury to have to. So i thought that was a great signing but jaehnke. We saw in the playoffs last year. Gordy off yeah. We saw it last year. And i can actually tell you that tyler kayla heinecke is a taylor tyler. Whatever his name is. I think he's good. And ron rivera knows zooey yet. He did the same thing. For ron rivera in carolina gordon different system. But you are correct. Now you're probably up on this but your former quarterback devlin hodges sign with the auto red blacks of the cfl. Yes i remember the ottawa rough riders way back then they were the ottawa renegades so the duck has blown north usually ducks fly south around this time of year but we loved. Evelyn hodges in pittsburgh he is he is great. i still have my devlin. Haji jersey go read blacks. I don't even know when they play or what they do. But i'm rooting for the red black read. Black is the cfl gordy sports and we actually do that journey. Leyla thursday we weren't through the entire league. We do last weekend's games we do this weekend's games we have coaches visit us. We have such a wide receiver from the edmonson elks. They cannot be the eskimos anymore. The has to be the elks and we give that flavor from north of the border as we cover it. You know what we have at our deputy editor behind the curtain dot. Com is a young man who is an assistant head coach for simon fraser. University now he is michael becky and he is from canada. And i believe if. I'm numbers taking i think he's a bc lions guy. We should hook you up with back. Because i think he knows his canadian football as well. Well please do that because again we've been covered for a number of years. We had for a while. We had earl winfield with us. He had to move back to virginia but while he was in the area he is a former wide receiver special teams player and using the hamilton technocrat hall of fame. And he used to be gordy sports a little more. You are international. I'll put you up with my ozzy guys down under if you ever wanted to be. You know you have the permission. Do that just like this. Other gentlemen were talking about with the university but this is why we do that that why do we cover it. Well here we have devlin. Hey this is why the nfl is a good league. You know what wide world sports back. In the day. When i was growing up on. Abc that was the thing you're worldwide man thank you. Let's look at some other games. How about san cisco philly. San francisco is build the real deal. The the team that you saw last year had so many guys on that team. They were super bowl team. That should have won that super bowl two years ago. Don't don't think we're second that the forty niners aren't a fantastic team. They just play in a really tough division. That nfc west. It's going to be fantastic. I know the cinderella story that could be the philadelphia eagles. Well clock strike midnight in week to my friend buffalo miami. I told you before. Buffalo is for real. I like miami is a very good defensive team but buffalo is going to win this game and how new england near just nobody cares unless you hate the patriots like i do I really like. I think the new york jets are going to figure. Start figuring some things out maybe not this year but the patriots are probably going to get the win in this game but root root root against the new england patriots cincinnati. Chicago interesting game chicago a weird team. I don't know what it is that. I saw on my screen on sunday night football when i saw them. I have to say this. There's a quarterback controversy already. They're not gonna be able to stick with. Andy dalton and i think justin field you give him an opportunity. He's going to do a little bit. Like jalen. hurts it in philadelphia. I think he's going to make some magic happen so i think it's time to make that move already. The cincinnati bengals are a team that i disrespect in cannot stand but i really love the offense of firepower of that team and what i fear about that team. Is that when you get joe borough going with that trio great receivers that they have their he higgins. You've got tyler boyd. And of course his or fringe amar chase. Where i think he had seven hundred. Forty thousand touchdowns at lsu with joe borough thrown on the ball so this is going to be an up and coming team. They get an offensive line. Look out for cincy. And i hate to say that. That actually makes me queasy doing it. I sinc- in that game. One final game kansas city. Baltimore sunday night. Oh what a game. That's going to be and i feel dirty rooting for the chiefs. I just don't like him. But you have to. If you're a steelers fan you root for the chiefs. That is that game is in baltimore in. This could be very interesting but baltimore man. I really hate to see them. Banged up. I just want to beat them at full strength so they don't have any excuses. But what you're looking at here..

"On just a happy friday afternoon. Good daddy. Brian coach gordie. What is up beautiful friday media where we know what's up. It's the pittsburgh steelers in this big win. They had a can't buffalo. And yes even yourself. We picked buffalo. But i just questioned consistency. And i don't know how good is going to be this year but you're going to break down his us. Buffalo can be very good twenty three sixteen. What that three sixteen. Yeah twenty three sixteen in buffalo. Gonna be good good team. The pittsburgh steelers did something that not a lot of people expected them to do and it's not flex and that's what made this game so special. That's what makes us coaching staff. So very special. You can say what you want. But they knew last year that they. What's the heck out of josh allen and they blitz more than any other team in the national football league last year in two thousand twenty and josh allen expected. And what's josh allen going to do when you bullet some he's going to run. For first downs yardage touchdown he was. He could be their leading rusher. That's how good he is with his mobility. So the pittsburgh steelers a team that have led the league in sacks for the last. I don't know how many years they come in. And they say. Are you think you know what we're going to do. Well checkmate we're going to cross you up. And that's exactly what they did. They blitzed twice and josh allen was confused. A majority of that game they were able to key on those receivers instead of rushing the passer. And that meant josh allen. Had nobody to throw to now when you're talking about consistency. Yeah the pittsburgh. Steelers remain a first-half second half team. The first half they were garbage they were hot. Garbage and fact bums would have not slept in the dumpster. That was the pittsburgh steelers last week. Gordon in the first half. Oh my a what happened. The second half that young offensive line started getting it together. Not harris who only average two point eight yards per rush and that entire game was averaging over four in the second half things were starting to gel. That team got it together. They looked like a completely different team. They made halftime adjustments. And that's something that they were not able to do in the days of randy feet their offensive coordinator. So that's something to be excited about but a good team and a smart team does not get too excited and say hey. We had one good half. We're just going to dominate the rest of the year. The band base has to realize that this team is a work in progress. There's going to be bumps in the road but they could win a lot of games with a quarterback that they have and that young team receivers in that line gets better you throw in a defense. That is absolutely fantastic. Held the number two offense two thousand twenty two sixteen point. That's absolutely amazing gordon. It is amazing. I want to go back to josh. Allen as we talk with brian. Anthony davis on this football friday afternoon of the happy variety. And that is when. I wondered how well buffalo's gonna do. The the remainder of a season aren't other teams going to look at him the way the steelers did. Yeah but they are way too. Good and sean. Mcdermott is a fantastic coach. You know look at the green bay. Packers to the green bay. Packers are not going to go and seventeen. They had a horrible start to the week. You have a team. Like the cleveland browns. That lost last week. They're not gonna go seventeen. Those teams are going to win a lot of games and they're going to be challenging for the division. Buffalo is going to have it together. You don't think that this is going to be a wake up. Call you're crazy. The buffalo bills are going to be a dangerous team. They have a very tough test. This week with the miami dolphins. And i can tell you. I think that they're gonna come out smoking. They're going to re tanker and they're going to be very good so i still find it very satisfying that. They beat buffalo. Because i still think they are one of the contenders for the super bowl in the national football league this year. We shall wait and see because obviously come playoff time. You may be saying. Hey that was a really big win for the steelers. I really think and i think that's one of the cup is game on their schedule in twenty twenty and it's behind them with a win going into this game. A lot of people were saying that. Okay it's okay if you lose week one that's fine. I even said that. Last week. Because i did not expect this. I knew they had the ability to win this game. But i've seen this movie before. I used that phrase last week and it just seemed like this was a game that they could win down the road maybe in the playoffs but not in a week one. They showed me a lot more. And like i said the most satisfying opening day victory since nineteen ninety-two bill cowers burst twin. When that team was twelve point underdogs to the houston oilers in houston texas at the house of pain. Gordy looking ahead to this week. Vegas baby they come to the steelers. One o'clock kick-off after beating the ravens. Mon- night that was the weirdest game i've ever seen. I gotta tell you teams that make that many mistakes that late in the game and use up all nine of their lives. They're crazy and dangerous. And that's exactly what john gruden's team is right now. They have a probably the best tight end in the league. Darren waller who the baltimore ravens just happen to let go which i take great pride in that but this team is not to be slept on gordy. I will say that right now. The los angeles raiders. Now they're not them anymore. The oakland raiders. They're not them anymore. Sin cities. Las vegas raiders. Jon gruden they are a tough team they always give the steelers pits especially when they're not that good. I think this is a decent team. I don't think it's a blockbuster team. I think the pittsburgh steelers should win this game if they play their game but be cautiously optimistic about them and if they are who we think they are gordie then vichy. It'd be a two zero team at the end of the day. That being the pittsburgh steelers as we do give a score going with twenty seven or twenty three this week and so for those better out there you could probably take the raiders To cover the spread but the difference is going to win this ballgame looked for a big game from pat prior mu with eric hebron on the self possibly with a hamstring injury. Look for najji harris to have possibly his first one hundred yard game in the nfl and look for him to reach the end zone as well and look for a lot of terrible towels flying high Last night's action washington's last moment win. I tell you what tyler heinecke is right now to me. The best backup quarterback in the league and it looks like he's going to have a chance to run that team. I root for the washington football team. And i really think Washington played a pretty good game. The new york giants are still trying to figure themselves as well out as well. That's going to be an interesting division with your philadelphia eagles. Getting the big win last week as well. Anything can happen in the nfc. Least so you see heineke. Possibly keeping their sunny position after fitzpatrick returns. Yeah i i really think that I really think that if he could show the next couple week that he's the guy that they'll probably make that transition..

"Because you are shaping your team both of these teams are essentially rebuilding and we have atlanta. You eluded to. They do not have the receivers they used to have now. Julio jones has gone some news gone. I mean they do have calvin ridley though. That's that's another guy. But i don't know even how healthy ridley is. Let's go to the nation's capital. La chargers at the washington vaulting la chargers one of my favorite teams as far as to look at as a future juggernaut. I love justin herbert. I like what they were doing. As far as cleaning up their offense of line. They've got the receivers and keenan allen and mike like williams was well. This is a very interesting often heckler. He's you know your fantasy football darling right now. He's a little guy. The bay like those little guys as far as you know. Receivers out of the backfield. I just think this is going to be a very good team. But once again when they travel cross country they lose a little bit All those teams lose a little bit on the one o'clock game and it's going to be very interesting. You still have a very good washington football team defense. It just depends on offense what you're going to get. What kind of firepower. You're gonna get out of mr ryan patrick. If you're gonna get that fits magic back and it is definitely possible because this is a guy that continues to do it year after year on assuming but he can put up three hundred and some yards in a game. Just like that. And with terry maclaurin there guys that know how to catch the football now yet antonio gibson as you're running back they have more firepower than they have. I think the washington football team could surprise you especially with coach of smart. And it's cutting as ron rivera. Final game baltimore vegas. Maybe man i tell you what. I never thought i would say this. But gosh do i feel bad for the baltimore raven because i'm not a guy that that Roots for a team to lose a player. How i mean. Gosh what kind of deal with the devil do they make. What is now being cashed in because everybody is going down with acl. yes gus edwards yesterday. Then you turn around and even a bigger deal than gus edwards to me is losing marcus peters who is one of my least favorite players in the league but my gosh he is fantastic. Gives the steelers fits. But he's so good as a steeler fan. I wanna beat the baltimore ravens straight up head to head full strength but with this thing said we're going to vegas. Team has little weird team but they invaded for. They have enough firepower. They have a former raven. Darren waller that is tearing things up as one of the best tight ends in the league. Right now derek. Park could make things happen. Josh jacobs makes things happen. This is going to be really fantastic. Ripple game as far as viewing. Because you still have a guy. Like lamar. Jackson the can take the game into his own hand and mark andrews who just signed that new contract. He's the guy that if they connect over the middle over and over. There's no stopping than either. So even though the ravens are hurting right now. I am not counting out for the twenty twenty one season and that's really hard for me to do because once again i live in maryland my favorite team in fact not my favorite anything else. Brian anthony davis. Let's play a national day. Today is national. Tv dinner day. I had a tv dinner in a long time. But i gotta tell you. There was a time in the mid eighties. Where i was loving. Tv dinners now. I wasn't like a hungry man paper guy. But i i like those little pasta dishes that you can go ahead and peel off the corner and and in the eighties i. I started doing those like the french bread. Supreme pizzas from like stover's my thing. Well certainly they have kept the name. The types have changed and there are various. Ones out there. But your question. Multiple choice is going to be. Which brand is the most popular in the us as we speak is it. Banquet is it. Offers is marie calendar's..

"They brought in dwayne haskins and haskins to did not have a very good start against dallas in the hall of fame. Game looked really solid throwing a touchdown pass leading them down to a couple of scores. Looked really good. He really he really quit his stock up so much higher in this game. Gordon really sold effort. All around the offensive line was getting some push as well they are. They're taking a lot of smaller steps with a lot of people. Wanna go but this is a team that needs to gel that it's nice to see kevin stockton back in there in the second year man. Who a lot of people have been down on for his conditioning but he looked very good yesterday as far as As his body weight and he looked and so he i he looked like he was really getting some push He's going to be the anchor on that line at left guard when the feelers were running the left side of the line with dan moore junior the fourth. Pick out of texas am and doctrine. My gosh they looked unbeatable. I know it's a preseason game but it's really nice if see the pittsburgh steelers run the ball with authority especially in the second half. What's your analysis about that. Other eagles right now. The eagles are their first team. Looks a whole lot better than the deficit they have. So if i'm looking at anything with the philadelphia eagles they are not very deep. They had that flacco had very good numbers. But you've got also remember that one of the reasons he had the members of the dead he have a huge like an eighty a seventy five yard score to To quads it in that in. I believe it was the second quarter. So it was he He had a really nice stat line. What really the starting team looks a whole lot better. They just need to get their their players in there. Certainly we agree that can happen with a team that is rebuilding a debt. Yeah and another thing going. You gotta remember that. Even next week pittsburgh is going to look better than the detroit lions just for the fact that they're youngsters and their players dot in game shape last week so this is the second day you gotta remember.

"One of these guys just not going to get a job and it's going to be a shame so i'm really excited about how they looked on. Defense the defensive back you had a guy named mark gilbert. He's from the pittsburgh area. He's related to Sean gilbert and another guy durrell rivas that you've heard of. He played a duke. Did not play a lot. Because he's had injury problems but if he's healthy number seventeen. Look really good on defensive corner. They've got a lot of young players. I'm really excited. And this game. Just showed them off showcase what they can do. I really think that next week against your philly boys. You're going to see so much more of what the pittsburgh steelers team can do. What we're gonna do is we're going to have you on next week for before and after we'll preview that preseason game more detail because again there's things are going to happen in both training camps between now and then players they may not be there. Is it okay with you. That's absolutely okay so this is good news. Everybody for the steelers organization will be there next week because of the hall of fame game. They have the the They do not have to cut five players like the other teams will after the first game. So that's that's really good news there so we'll see extended look at some of these guys and you'll get a chance to kind of figure out what the black and gold ministerial gonna look like this year. Ryen anthony davis heavy stellar weekend in unit. So you know it is national water balloon day it is well laid with some of those yet but do not tell my kids because they like to make a mess and they're not afraid to do it inside the house. So you're trivia question is and you're so good particularly when we come to the nineteen eighties music that being said the water balloon actually originated with a sock specifically a water per sock when it was invented in the nineteen hundreds. Can you tell us what decade that first waterproof sock was invented in the nineteen hundreds and that is where your water balloon playing started. Okay well i'm gonna probably say it how to be during wartime so i have to guess between the nineteen chan's and twentieth for world one or maybe World war tooth for some reason. I'm going towards world war two. So let's say the forties actually guess excellent and what analysis the man stellar. Actually this visit here is nineteen fifty. Okay it's almost like you always want to give it to brian. The nineteen forties would have been up to nineteen forty nine. How close okay. yeah. I'm sure that All of that running around over overseas they a lot of people realize that they need water through socks so it was probably in development probably doesn't develop his quick so the idea was probably born in the forties forty. We'll go to give you credit for that. I tell you when these contestants they explain their reason for getting the correct answer well done and you are a winner here. As a throw in wednesday we had a day. You probably really like. It was nestle chocolate chip cookie day. All yes i do. Those were invented in the nineteen thirties. This one i'll just go ahead and tell you in massachusetts by a woman who actually made a mistake. She actually ran out of your baker's chocolate and as you can imagine a chef cooke baker there in the kitchen this relates to the toll house. Toss restaurant and what do i do. Well all put in semi sweet. Semi sweet does not melt in your chocolate chip. Cookie was born absolutely. We suggest you again sometime in the days ahead and maybe perhaps that would be little snack suggestion. You know what. I've tried recently with an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. That i decided that at my wife was she could make and we made them together and they were fantastic. That's a good combo and the oatmeal is good for. You is really good..

Let's give it up brian. Anthony davis why did you hear coach. Gordie it is fantastic because we are back behind the curtain and the field is played last night and you are ever so correct. That's really why we're here. You did beat the dallas cowboys. Sixteen to three and as we you know. These preseason games mean relatively if little nothing as far as score perspective how important they are for the coaching staff evaluating young hoping to make that steeler roster and they are watching every move of that player. Go ahead for your role analysis that that will. You're right. And i put it matter the dallas cowboys the kansas city chiefs. Whoever it was because they're playing against themselves when you're playing preseason football you really need to look at here so fast that real steelers the guys that are going to be out there on week one.

It's kind of like mine league baseball that you'd like to win games but more importantly you are there to develop players and i try to use that word picture for all of our teammates unless that is what this preseason is which is also why it has been shortened with the addition nor game. That's going to be played this season regarding number seventeen so again when you get into even further when they're still did scores more points there in the second half now we have really some of those very lesser known players. Yeah and it's really great to see another guy that was not a lesser known but shades. Plateful really good in action. Last night he went out because he got the wind knocked out of them. But he is okay. He was Celebrating on the sidelines. When guys like kayla the lodge and other receivers younger receivers that Taller seven Who you might not be as familiar with your when those guys were scoring and getting opportunities so there's very team atmosphere last night and that was great to see but golly kaelin balaj at running back backing harrison not way can i considerable amount in the first quarter and look pretty good. He average only about three yards per carry. But the line looked so much more organized than those weren't started. What you had rookie kendrick. Green getting some whole forum. He did have a four yard loss but that was more on the offensive line. It's a work in progress but it looks so much better really. Glad to see what you can what you had out there. Kaelin balaj looks like he's a front runner for the number one back after this. 'cause benny snow journey her out. And balaj look. Wow gosh she looks punishing. He's a four year player out of the chargers organization and he played very well as well. So i'm really glad to see on the defensive side of the ball gordon. I gotta tell you. There's some names like jamir jones that you gotta get excited about. He's an undrafted free agents. Good media named jimmy jones. Jim mayor joan yet. See brian davis and i. I also be saying quickey. Rochet and rumbling rochet's another outside linebacker so the deficit outside linebacker seems so much better. When you have hype. Myth and watt and melvin ingram.

Sarah Chalke Talks Rick & Morty
"About what a dream career in acting might be. Sarah Chalke has sort of had it. She's been on some of the best love TV shows of all time, Roseanne. Scrubs How I met your mother. Not too shabby, right? But you know things must be slowing down during the pandemic for actors. Well, not for Sarah. Now she's part of the one of the most popular shows during this pandemic, the animated series Rick and Morty, where she does the voice of Beth Sanchez. I had the chance to talk with Sarah Chalke out in Vancouver, British Columbia last year after season four of the show rap. We talk from her home, NBC. Don't worry, I wasn't NBC hears our conversation. Hi, Sarah. How are you? Hey, I'm great. Nice to talk to you. Where are you? I'm in British Columbia and s O feel like you'd be here. You're still able to work right? You're on Rick and Morty. It's animated show. Are you still able to do voices? Yes, I'm I've been recording three cartoons up here, and it's been such an interesting adventure to find like the most acoustically positive sound And really, that's like a dead sense. You have to find somewhere small and s O. I started out in the lower bunk bed surrounded by every do they and pillow that was available to me and then try taking the kids play tent and duct taping seven moving blankets around it. Um and then you know you're in this kind of like dark space. And then I take like make a stack with like a thing of poker chips and Harry Potter books and then bounced the microphone on top and hope for the best. And I also say that like Beth on Rick and Morty Is not like a A super kid friendly cartoon character like No. Are you worried about your kids here in here and what's going on with mom in the room? So what if he like up and you know you're recording off campus in a sound contained sound booth? Um, so yeah, yeah, that's also been part of this figure out a way to not only keep the dogs from barking, um, and hearing birds, but also, uh, the Children not hearing you. So it's an interesting um Dynamic. They get to have some really loud. Screen time, huh? Get they get to watch their iPad as loud as they want so that mom could say rated r things into a microphone in the bunk bed. Totally. I mean, I was already worried about like my daughter who's three going to preschool and like she loves we have all the Rick and Morty like stuffed animals, and plus, she's and so she'll play with them. If you like, mister Q. B Butthole. Yeah, I don't know how that's gonna go over playing that with other Children. It's been really amazing to see how big Rick and Morty has become, like I remember when it was sort of like this little niche. Animated chauffeur for nerds and for You know, for people who like really kind of sophisticated comedy, and then it just becomes this worldwide phenomenon. And it made me think about your character, Beth. So for people who haven't seen the show, can you tell me who Beth was when you started and sort of who she's become, as the serious has gone on. Yes. Oh, so she's the sort of mother of the family. Um, Rick and Morty is the grandfather of the grandson. And you think you're gonna watch this grandfather grandson? Go on these like wild sci fi adventures. But what it ends up going into is like these real kind of rough family dynamics and on day kind of You know, not just this sci fi cartoon but asking these existential questions like if life is meaningless, and there are infinite universes, does anything really matter? So that's rickon Gordy in general, and then the best starting out kind of that, you know, as the Matriarch of the family and playing the mom and then over time, And as the seasons went on, you find out how much she is like her dad and the fact that when she was little, he had to build her a secret world. Because she was making whips to make people like her and mind control hair clips. As a young girl. You find out that she is kind of a lot like her dad, and and then and then, as the seasons go on. She wants to either stay or leave, And we don't know if she's a clone or not a clone, and that's been super fun to play kind of death. And then this alternate best as well. Space that it's funny like it. Z must be a challenge to sort of play your character and also sort of more sinister. We're like, deceptive version of your character. But it's all the same voice like You're not changing too much, you know. Yeah, Totally, totally. It's been. It's been super fun, and obviously we didn't know at any point that that was coming like we just get the scripts as we get them. We have no knowledge of. You know what's happening down the road in the future, so that part's so fun. I mean, to see like a Rick and Morty script in My Inbox is one of my favorite things because the minds of Justin Royal and and Dan Harmon are Unbelievable. There. So the scripture so smart and so funny and so wild. I love them. It's the number to show in all of North America like we were looking at in the US anyway. We were looking at the survey was conducted in the US to see what TV shows were being binge the most during the pandemic. So number one friends. Friends is number one. Right? Yes, I love it. I'm a big friends fan. And then sort of like the anti friends Rick and Morty is is not know that his number two in some states record is number one. What do you make of it? What do you make of it that during the pandemic, it's gotten even more successful. That's really cool. I didn't know that. I think I think people want to laugh and people want to escape into another world. And I think that it's a You know, a time for For a real need for for comedy, and the growth of It has been interesting to watch kind of through the eyes of comic con over the years like we would go to comic con You're one. It hasn't been released yet. So all the questions were to Dan Harmon about community and then the next year, it was like a couple of weeks walking around and then the next It was like a sea of Mr Poopy bottles and bricks and all these different characters was kind of cool. I get to see how it's how it's growing, but I'm glad it's bringing people less. Is it this time? Is it ever a bit intense? Like I know that I know that Even Dan and Justin, the folks behind the show have had to come out and talk to the fans of the show. Because they could be intense. They could be a bit toxic. That could be a bit sort of awful. Now when we're talking about a pretty small Group of fans of the show, but I can't imagine what that's like to be sort of in it to be in in the show, with all that's going on. Yeah, it is. It is wild. The degree to which you know I can't watch all the little pieces and I am you know, I think that That, you know, I don't. I don't actually read a ton of those, uh, those sites and comments, but I think it's It's cool how passionate people are about it. It reminds me because when you started, I think the first way we all knew you was when you were on when you were on Roseanne and you were brought in court famously, is second Becky. Like one of the biggest shows of the nineties, You replaced the original actress who played the daughter Becky, until the original Becky came back again. From what? I understand you were in high school in Canada, and then it got that gig. Yeah, it was crazy. I was 16 when I auditioned and I I was living in Vancouver and working on a couple things that were filming up here, but really haven't done anything under very much. And and, uh, got this audition and put myself on tape. And, um, I think we even like Mailed a VHS tape, You know, down to the states, and they called and said, We're gonna fly you down for an audition on day were seven of us and all the others were like 21 living in L. A actresses and all of us were doing this scene with Glenn Quinn. Who played Mark back his husband and the whole scene was like making out. You're making out with him. And you're like, you know, get job. The gas station, baby. Come and get it down to the gas station, baby. Come here. That was the same like there's this 24 year old, handsome Irish actor. How am I gonna remember one line and they said we'll let you know within a week. And then, a week later, they called back and said, Okay, come back tomorrow and do a scene with Roseanne and was like on the infamous coach on the set, and they were calling out. You know, camera numbers and having a laugh track and seeing if you could kind of adjust to those elements, and then they called and said, You got it. And Remember going to a party that night and telling a couple people and it just sounded so crazy. Sounded crazy. Yeah. Sounded crazy that you were in. You were in high school, and you were telling people having to be on the number one sitcom in the world. They would have been right to be like They're not. You're not like taking over for someone else like they're gonna not have like It just sounded insane. And we already had, like great seven. We already had, like someone like lied about being on the mini pops. Remember the many pox which were so amazing? I don't I don't know. The minibar like a Canadian band was like a Canadian kids. And you would like You know they would sing covers, and they were dressed these cool eighties clothes and they were amazing and someone in our schools that they were going to be in the mini pops. That wasn't true. So all the sudden I felt this feeling of like I'm lying about being in many parts, and then so then I kind of spread it on our school pretty quick. And then they called me back on Monday morning, and they said We're having cold feet about replacing Becky. So we don't know if we're gonna do it. We will do will pick you if we do it, but we're gonna put you on hold for four months. We're going to tell you in September just got this is jumping. You couldn't be a Minnie Bob situation, right? You're gonna have to go back to all of them ago. No, no, they change their mind like all you have Sara? Sure they did Change your mind. And then you then you find out Yeah. And then s O was my great 12 year and, um And I would go back and forth because they would shoot two or three weeks on one week off. So we would shoot Monday to Thursday. I would get on a plane first thing Friday morning and be at school in Canada on Friday afternoon and then and then fly back Sunday night or stay home for a week if we had a week off and kind of commuting back and forth I'm really interested in people like you who have On gun traditional first big gig like I was talking to Linda Cardellini the other day who played Lindsay on Freaks and geeks, Right? And you know, so there you go. She's her big break. Is this show that considered to be the greatest show of all time and then gets canceled after one season and I said, You know, what does that do for you for the rest of your career, and similarly for you your first Big is to replace beloved Actor. In a show that is the number one show on that, and it was it was controversial. When it happened, it was people couldn't believe that it was happening. And then I wonder if that taught you anything in your career going forward, whether it had hardened to you or heart And you do you think it did something to you? I think both of those things I think, you know, I mean, because Yeah, came. She would least he was Becky from seasons 1 to 5. I was six and seven. She came back for the beginning of eight. And then I came back for the rest of eight. And for nine. And so it was definitely, you know. As a kid. Um, it's you know, it's confusing and hard when they brought her back, and then they called this. Okay. Now, will you come back? And and so that piece, I think, um Was the challenging part of it for sure, And the other piece that was challenging was just going from complete obscurity to going on the number one show, and then you're at that age where gynecology just kind of wanna blend of a sudden that piece of it was it was hard, but they incredible part was the obvious, unbelievable gift of working with John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf and Roseanne and Sara Gilbert and Johnny Galecki and Sandra Bernhardt. And I mean it was It was crazy. It was like stepping into having not really worked out much to working with this top, unbelievably talented comedians and just watching them. Work and what They would do with a script from a Monday morning table read Till Thursday night Tape night. It was such a huge learning experience and so so interesting and obviously You know, open so many doors for me. I mean, I was Like my entire diamonds, girls. My nickname was second package would be like we got second back in the seventies. Really Good. Yeah. Yeah,

So you know for you before the acting career before the music business which will get to there was Buddhism right that came Beckham before the acting I think and I was wondering you grew up. Christian MRI. And I was wondering growing up Christian what was it that? How'd you end up Madonna breakage what drew you to the Buddha? Question. Is. It still boggles now it doesn't Boggle I. Am very lucky I grew up in a loving Christian household. So wasn't one of those you know fire Brimstone type situations might my grandmother was wonderful Christian? My my aunt is a is A. Wonderful Wonderful Beautiful Lady she is what it sounds like. You know it all intents and purposes and I have many wonderful Christian friends and family that that are amazing. But for me I felt like there was a point in my life maybe was a certain age of coming to being where certain things just didn't make sense to me anymore or or I. Felt that I was being drawn in another way and I wasn't sure what that way was. It wasn't a rejection of something but more a seeking more something else something that that just was sort of calling to say. So I. Couldn't quite out what it was and I remember my mother had this shelves. Books From College. There's one book in Religions of the World Textbook as a as a good place to start as any. and. So it's just kind of like starting through going through all the religions of the world literally starting with animism and and native American religions which brought me back to thinking of my own heritage and things that we learned from our grandmothers are on tees than you know, herbs and prayers that are not in any books or dances, or you know traditions, words that that are that I. Thought were Spanish that are not for example, and I started going to college and learning about that learning about old medicine learning about all different not just my try all the tribes of the Americas and I really was a great and still is a great experience. Great part of my life of the day I was still kept feeling that there was more and in my thirteen fourteen. So. I started going to hardcore shows New York hardcore scene, and there was a big Christian of consciousness movement bands like WanNa wait and shelter and and Chroma is and bad brains singing about this other esoteric type things and and you know the Christian of monks were always there hanging out singing hotter Krishnan and handing out food and stuff. So of course, I was checking it out and and there are some things that kind of you know paying some interest for me but then again, it was a lot of. Things that weren't also clicking. So know go back to the book the Book of the word yet it again. kind of thumbing through it and I see Dow is and I'm like reading through it. It's very logical. It's straightforward. There is no puppet masters like. Extra beings, there's no like get off the pay money you don't have. There's no strings attached. It's cause-effect cause-effect cause-effect that if you do a long enough, be will happen if you one plus one is to the softest thing in the world can cut through the hardest giving with time things like that and that kind of really appealed to me it was very grounded and very focused than. Kind of removed that, which may be I needed for awhile removed that. Mystical magical element at made it more about how to fix yourself now

My brother decided nothing was happening with the show business stuff so he decided to join the army as a result the guys used to always practice in in our basement to rehearse in all of that so I heard all the songs and after my brother was gone a great audition came an opportunity for an audition in came about and it was absolutely fascinating you know and that maybe you get an opportunity to be able to record and as a result smokey asked me would I go to the audition with them as their fifth member and I said yes and that the idea and when we got there and rehearsed the gentleman that was auditioning us. I'm sorry I don't like I don't really like the group he didn't see say it just like that but it meant that what he wanted actually at that time he wanted smokey and I'd be like a dual and the duo would have been just he and I see and forgetting the guys Mickey and Sylvia were real popular at the time and so therefore that's what they wanted that's so he wanted will of course we weren't GonNa leave the guys of course I was knew I wasn't really a part of their group yet and we we just kind of you know the guys especially. We're so so very very disappointed because they thought this was their one opportunity. They're going to get a recording contract. Well there was a gentleman walking around and that gentleman said do you have any more of those songs and smokey spoke up and he said yes he said how many said one hundred rid so we said well. Can I hear some of those so when the piano and we started singing and performing not very much performing mainly he just singing and re. I'm laughing because I actually was in my United States. Marine Corps a uniform. I was in the reserves reserves and I was you know it was that time of the day so it was coming from our basic practice and went to the audition and you know after all that happened and then this gentleman asking us to sing he listened very very patiently very repatirated. Every song has to have a beginning a middle and end so that you know how to write property can't be all over over the place and because we went to the audition singing five original songs and after that occurred you know when we saying the gentleman introduces himself and he said my name is Berry Gordy today. Everybody gets real excited when I say AH Berry Gordy but he wasn't as well known at that time but smoke he actually knew who he was because smoking you look at the hit parade magazine Zine that was out in that magazine actually had had the lyrics listed of the song as well as the song writer or writers and and he has seen Mr Gordie's name down there so he was like Oh boy you know I'm getting an opportunity to see this famous guy I must i I had never heard of Mr. I guess really sheltered or something and I thought who is because smokey was so excited excited. He was like Oh so at the end of that. Mister Gordy said he'd like to work with us so I was you know I'm new to the group so I I don't know include me or not and as as we kept talking to him then I found out later more about him and and his family is family was really well recognized around Detroit. You know they had so many entrepreneurship businesses. They had a a printing company. They had a record company. They had yes. They have construction. They also so had Mrs Gordy senior was well into the insurance business so they were really really entrepreneurs long before leaving her. Yes yes and there were eight children. Mr Gordon being a child number seven which always that's that's a pretty lucky number so we started working with him. Of course this year is that particular year was nineteen fifty seven so Mr Gordon was saying that we needed record so our first record that was released was February nineteenth nineteen fifty eight which coincidentally is bobby and smokey's birthdays and you know same same day same year same everything same hospital as well as they actually found out later an hour apart and they met fourteen years later uh well as story went on this is now nineteen fifty eight but there is no motown yet that had not occurred and and when we see that magnificent wonderful royalty check three dollars a nineteenth since it was like Oh my God you know. Is this this this what happens with showbusiness how you ever GonNa make are you going to ever have a home or an apartment or any of the above and smokey suggested to Mr Gordy that you know maybe you should have your own record company because we certainly could not do any worse yeah and that was kind of like the start a we had had prior to that a two record deal with the record label which was our I song gotTa Job can then after that we had a two record deal with chess records of and the thing is I don't recall with the royalty check was from wound gigantic. No no it was never gigantic. Unfortunately well well as as time you know went by motown itself which is now sixty years was started January twelfth nineteen nineteen fifty nine and would made that something remarkable as far as having a company Mr Gordon Gordon what had not only have thought that we should definitely have our own record our own whatever and and so the song for that became we recorded Chaperon my mother call she said Eh on you growing up now pretty soon new take awry and then she said
