"Be a Grammy nominee. Who is celebrated in music city, Nashville, Tennessee, as one of its great icons. And you're going to write a book a memoir titled saved by a song. It just started that you know that tonight is you do this first. You just, it would have been impossible to believe. Wait. It's possible that I could get here from there. Wow. You know? And yet life is funny that way. You know? Maybe it was terrifying to the degree that it was because it meant so much to me. And I really wanted to do it. Wow. Like it went in my heart of hearts. It's what I really wanted to do. I really, really, really wanted to be a songwriter and an author and a person of words. And because of drugs and alcohol, I couldn't focus. I couldn't focus. I could, you know, machete my way through a kitchen, but I couldn't focus on the kind of things that make writing good. I couldn't do that. And I didn't have the self awareness or the ability to sit still and do this kind of work until I got sober. And so my recovery has been all about moving through the fear of a million things. And towards the light, towards the calling, that whisper that asks of me to do what is frightening. And I'm always being asked to do what is frightening. It just never ends. You don't get there. There is no there. It's pretty constant. Once a mountain is climbed, there's just going to be another mountain. And you know I'm now 32 years sober. So fast forward. I moved to Nashville when I was 40 to pursue this. I tossed the keys to the investor and said, your restaurant enjoy. I'm out. Go Shay out. And left Boston came here in 2001 here being Nashville, Tennessee. And I was very, very lucky. I got a record deal. I was able to be on a label that I think is probably one of the coolest labels ever called lost highway records, a division of universal. They had, oh my God, they had the best artists at lucinda, Ryan Adams, Johnny Cash, they put out a Hank Williams box set, it was an extraordinary time in Nashville. It was the very end, I think, of that kind of opportunity for an artist like me. And I caught it. I just caught it, just caught it, you know? It's a speeding car and I caught it. And you know, it is my story is a story of possibility. You know, people look at me and go, well, you'd think that the grand old opry wouldn't want someone like Mary, you know, who's, I mean, I am a gay woman, and I walk like a duck. I talk like a duck. There's not a lot of swan going on here. I look like what I am. And that's not a bad thing or a good thing. It's just a thing. And you don't see people like me on the opry, but I play the opry a lot. And so that's possibility for people who look like me. To say, well, she did it. You know, and the same thing with getting a record deal at 40. Who gets a record deal at 40? Well, I'm gaucher. Like I am the one. That is unheard of. I don't know. It doesn't happen. Not on a major label. No. No, because the demographic that participates most wholeheartedly in music is younger. And they want people their age, you know? So, against all odds, that's my story. It's against all odds and it keeps happening. And I love that I can be inspiration for people who are saying, yeah, you can't do this, but well, yeah, you can. You can. Yeah. Yeah, one of my favorite retorts the people who say you can't. And you have these herbs, and many people say, well, you know, I don't think I go, who says? Says who? You know what I mean? Who says that? Who says you can't do that, right? It's pretty great. So on that note then, it's a nice segue. I want to do a reading from your book. Thank you. All right. And it's this, again, for people who are just chiming in right now, saved by a song, the art and healing power of songwriting by the inimitable word I've used twice today, Mary gauthier, and I love this, which is taken from this chapter, our lady of the shooting star. So why don't you do this beautiful reading for me? I'd love it. This scene takes place a shortly after I moved to Nashville. And it goes like this. The first year I lived in Nashville, I was invited to a party at music photographer Jim Maguire's house that became a song circle with guy Clark, Lyle levitt, John Hyatt, Joey Lee Steve Earl, and Nancy Griffith. It was a wonderful night, and I was on the edge of my seat desperately wanting to go from being in the audience to swapping songs with that group of legends. I knew I was in deep waters, the new kid in town, but I longed to sit in that circle. I deeply admired everyone in it for many years. As the music was winding down, Nancy looked over and asked Mary, would you play us a song? A new Nancy, because that opened a string of shows for her a month prior. I was absolutely thrilled when she invited me to play. I sat in the chair, she offered, took her guitar into my hands, and played a song I'd written called our lady of the shooting stars. The other songwriters closed their eyes and nodded as I played, some even smiled. There was no wild applause when the song ended, but the smiles and nods made me feel like I belonged. I still had a long way to go, of course, but joining that circle was validation that moving to Nashville had been a good decision. Holding my own in that circle of songwriters whose records I owned, and whose careers I followed gave me confidence. Being around songwriters, I deeply admired humanized them. It made the star I was reaching for, feel less distant. When I was done, I handed Nancy her guitar back. And she shook her head and said, no, you keep it. I froze. Holding her engraved, signature sunburst, tailored 6 12 cutaway guitar in midair. Question marks flashing in both of my eyes. It's yours. She said, when I moved to Nashville, Harlan Howard gave me his guitar. I'm giving you mine. I was speechless, but somehow found the courage to ask, would you sign it? And she did. Someone handed her a sharpie and she signed for Mary because you will sing. I found out later it's an old Nashville tradition to pass on a guitar. It's an attempt to stay on the good side of the muse and the mystery. Some songwriters believe it is one way to keep songs flowing. Harlan gave Nancy one of his guitars because he felt there were no songs left in it for him, but maybe there were some inside it for her. Nancy had just done the same thing for me. It was as if she was saying, welcome to Nashville kid. Remember, you best stay on the good side of mystery in paradox. They

"Weekends, and we'd stay in like a $26 crack motel and we'd boss in front of the grand old opry, and then our shift would end about 9 o'clock, we'd go downtown, we'd busk on lower Broadway. God, we were making like $800 on a Friday night. And we come back to that crack motel and we'd buy two cases of beer and a cart and smokes, and we would just feel like king. And we were the high rollers in those motels. And it was a different Nashville, like people weren't clamoring to move to Nashville. There was like the country music thing and there was healthcare, but you know, you could have bought those houses for nothing. Well, it was around that time that we stumbled into Marty Stuart when we found that the uncle Dave Macon days festival had a $500 prize without, well, let's go down there and win it. And we went down to Murfreesboro and we were busking there, making a big hoot and Marty Stewart walked in. He was the grand mason of the festival that year. And he brought us into his fold right away and made sure that we played the opry. He hosted our first opry debut at the ryman, which came just three months after that. And then had us open for him, had us out to the house, made us know that his Nashville was a place that we were welcomed. And what was your first performance like in the opera? It was in January when the opry would traditionally move from its home at the opry house down to its old home at the ryman auditorium. And we all got dressed up in suits. And we were all so nervous. Critter was so nervous he threw up in the trash can right there in the wings before we walked on. And we were all just sweating bullets. And we came out there and Marty had given us each little guy gauze to wear. It was really helpful, honestly, to Kevin, our get Joe player, he gave a pair of glasses that had belonged to some old Hollywood movie star. And to me, he gave a funny kind of velvety bow tie that had belonged to slim Whitman, and everybody had one little thing to borrow for the set because Marty's a collector. He's got all this crazy. Memorabilia. And we did some old time hokum songs that brought the house down. And when they asked for an encore, we didn't know what to do, so we just played the same song again. And then they wanted another encore. Honestly, it felt the closest that I've ever felt to feeling like Hank Williams must have felt. That time that he made his opry debut, or just to be Hank Williams, it was like there was no nothing digital about the world. It was like an analog moment. We were on a.m. radio. We were not on the Internet. It was the year 2000. We didn't have a cell phone, I was still carrying a spiral notebook in my back pocket. And the crowd in a 120 year old gospel union tabernacle all rose to its feet because we were playing hundred year old music that made them feel joy. We have to take one last quick break, but after that, we'll be back with more from Bruce hedley, catch C corps and Jerry Pentecost.

We're back with the rest of Bruce's interview with catch and Jerry of old crow medicine show. There's a song on your record I do want to talk about, which is the Ford Bailey rides again. Well, it's the Ford writes again, but it's about this incredible character to Ford Bailey. Can you talk a bit about that? When we were working on songs for the record, catch reached out to me and he was like, you know, I've been working on this idea of writing a song about D four Bailey. And so we got together. And we just kind of started talking about it, you know, like talking about him as an individual, you know, like what he stood for. And it kind of actually I never told you this, but it made me think back to in my early days of being this drummer for hire. And when I was starting to play country music, people would ask me, do you want to be in country music? And I was like, wow, there's no black people in country music. And every so often somebody would say, what about D four Bailey? And I never knew who he was. And you know, we played the opry for years now. They've been members since what 2012, 2013. There's not a really strong presence of him at the opry, so like an African American individual when I'm there. I'm sensing for a feeling of belonging. And so if you don't see representation, you know, like then it's kind of hard to figure. So yeah, so like I was really excited about resurrecting this legacy this wrongdoing because that's kind of like how I look at it. This fallen soldier or pioneer of the opry. Everybody knows about Roy Acuff and Minnie Pearl, but people seldom know about defort Bailey and he is a member of the country music Hall of Fame at only took them what 20 some odd years after he died for them to do it and you know him being on the show when the term or the name grand old opry was introduced for the first time being the first African American member like there's just there's a lot dismissing. So we wanted to tell the song about the legacy and the life of D four Bailey and it's actually kind of sad. He was the first performer was me on the radio show the grand old opry opened with an African American performer. He was a harmonica player. The harmonica wizard. They called him the harmonica wizard, and he would open up the shows on by playing the sound of the freight train called the Pan American that would blow that would blow as it went by the broadcast tower. And then he would sing a song and he did Fox chases and all this mimicry and he was the grandchild of slaves born in Smith county, Tennessee, 1899. He had polio when he was a kid as an adult. He was about four foot 9, and he became the very first African American recording artist in Nashville. And he did that in the 20s. His albums were released to both a white and black audience, his acclaim from the opry, he was so popular, he was a national touring act, and he would go out on the road with Bill Monroe. And they would have to put him in a suitcase to bring him into some of these hotels, where he wasn't welcome as a black man in the south. He was so small he could ride in a steamer trunk. It kind of makes me want to cry when I think about that. Did he perform on stage with white performers? Oh yeah. And so when the opry would go out on the tours during the weeks because, you know, the opry was a weekend show. But all through the weeks, Aubrey members could play anywhere that they could get a booking. And that's where they could really make money because the opera didn't pay. So he would tour with uncle Dave Macon, who was the biggest star of this era in which hillbilly music and vaudeville were sort of thick as thieves and before anybody even called it country in western. It was just called hillbilly music. D four Bailey was a hillbilly star. And the first black recording artist in Nashville. So we knew we wanted to resurrect the story. In the 1980s after the early 80s, after D four had been kicked off the opry, had his name dragged through the mud became a shoe shine, operator. Okay, let's back up, why did he get kicked off the operating? Well, the story is that in 1941, that BMI and a couple other songwriting performance royalty burying agencies determined that you could make more money if you did their catalog on the radio because of new broadcast, a copyright loss that would royalty bearing. And the opry says that they said to D Ford, if you're going to stay on the opry, you have to do a new catalog of songs, and defort said, well I only played the songs I play. And then after he was then dismissed, they said that he was sullen in his work ethic as attributed to men of his color. That was the quote from the honorable judge D hay, who was the longtime radio voice of the grand Ole opry. So they basically, you know, they blackballed him, and he lived another 40 years. And eventually moved into federal housing. He ran a successful shoe shine business, and then in the late 70s, they started bringing them back to the opry and kind of token roles, old timers show and there was a folklorist who discovered him who's since become a friend of mine named David Morton, who was working for HUD. And he was, you know, a college grad white kid, maybe at Vanderbilt or something, new employee, that summer for hud, and he's going around in the housing projects, checking in with residents, and somebody said he liked music and some old ladies said to him, well, if you like music, you need to go up to the 8th floor. Well, default Bailey lives there. And he comes back home and to his dad in Alabama. His dad was born in the teens or something. And he said, oh yeah, I just met this old black gentleman plays a harmonica. Oh, what's his name? D four Bailey, you met D four Bailey? He's still alive because this guy David Morton's father had listened to the opry in the 20s, and knew that D Ford was a legend. And so D Ford told David that he felt that God had called them together so that D four's story could finally be retold. And the D four could finally say his piece. And so he wrote a book. He made a record, all of these things happen in the year 1980. I think he died in about 1982. But I think the most moving thing for the whole story about me was I wanted to write a song about D four and ever since I came to Nashville. But I never felt like it would be appropriate for me as a white country guy to sing that song. And when Jerry and I got together, I mean, Jerry can write any song Jerry wants to write, but I thought that this might be a good song, and Jerry helped me finish it, and then tell him about our trip after we both got COVID over Christmas. Oh, yeah. So we got COVID three days before Christmas. And we were just constantly checking in on each other because we both had to be isolated. And I said, you know, it's kind of nice today. You want to go for a walk and he was like, yeah, let's go to a cemetery. And I had a cousin that had just passed three days before we had COVID. So I was like, I wanted to go out there and my mom's very Greenwood cemetery is second oldest African American cemetery in Nashville. So I've got a lot of family out there. And yeah, I said, how about Greenwood? And he was like, perfect. So we met at Greenwood and I said, you know, I looked up, you can do grape finder, found out where D four Bailey is great was. And first we went to D four Bailey junior and saw his grave, which is actually really close to one of my uncles, but then D Fords, it's right, kind of in the front, which is really like two feet over from an on a mine. It's a cross away from my mom and my granddad, you know, like, so there was just all this, there was this energy there that you know like all of a sudden it's like, even though we had to get COVID to experience it, you know, like we were right there. We were in the presence of country music, African American history like a legend, you know, like right there in such close proximity to my family and like potentially I haven't decided if I wanted to be buried, but if I did, that's where I would go, you know? So yeah,

"You to come to Nashville and do the same thing out in front of the grand Ole opry. So the summer of 2000 we all came down in Nashville on the weekends, and we'd stay in like a $26 crack motel and we'd boss in front of the grand old opry, and then our shift would end about 9 o'clock, we'd go downtown, we'd busk on lower Broadway.

real big there used to be national association of radio talk show hosts or something like that And she would be there regularly in the last time I saw her was at a meeting in Los Angeles and I'm

never got a copy of it No okay But anyhow I had an incident out on kish walkie street coming from the airport by 3000 buck Here comes this collie into my head likes coming head on and I didn't have any choice but to hit the brakes And anyhow I'm thinking what's the matter with that crazy dog And I get up a little farther on where the dog came from and here was an accident Newspapers and glass and stuff scattered all over the street Somebody delivering papers this is about 4 o'clock in the morning Had been rear ended and just as far as I know they survived the accident okay But it's probably some backend recent stuff because it broke the back of their seat They'd hit him so hard Well heck with them How was the dog Well the dog went on up the road and then came back later And all he was doing was warning me about this accident that was up the head Because it was not visible at all Wow It was a very dark area And this was before cell phones And then I talked to the person you know that was in the accident and they seemed to be okay and then I had to get to a phone someplace And then the people they were working for Yeah But anyhow it was just like one of the last episodes Wow And I had another situation with a beagle that somebody could keep and they gave him to me You know with a doghouse and he used to get up on his dog I was just like Snoopy in the cartoons you know And straddles the ridge of the roof They're very talkative They certainly can howl like no other breed Well you know he had a personality and people would actually stop and talk to me Well he'd talk back Yeah Yeah he was he was quite a bit of pet He had been neutered So if there was any smell of anything in the wind why he was gone Yeah Yeah I can see that The call of nature Yes Yeah But I've had a number of pets over the years I had one that escaped from the veterinarian you know where she had gone for some different things to be done And she had broke her leg at one time and they pinned it

We don't hold on to history enough, because people complain about that in Nashville, the new Nashville.

"Another warmish hottest day. Let's just call it hot. Alright, fine Heart Then we'll start to see Uh what they're calling a cool down. We'll see. A major hazard statement is in effect from this morning until Wednesday evening Coast up to 76 today Inland 90 to the mountains 87 the desserts up to 1 10. Right now. Downtown. We are it's foggy. It's a little cloudy and it's 68 Kogo news time is 7 11 President Biden sweeping new vaccine requirements have Republican governors threatening lawsuits? His response have added, joining us on the coca News Live line attorney Arlene Yang. Good morning. Good morning. So is it as simple as have at it. Well, we know we've had a lot of questions from our employers admires novel about whether vaccines can be required. And we know that the data shows that employees who are vaccinated are less likely to get other employees sick and are less likely to get customers sick. And so the OSHA is responsible for protecting and America's workers, And so they have decided that this is the way to protect America's workers. And there was the fine administration has a legal basis to mandate the vaccine. Alright, let's talk about the request for accommodations for employees on religious and or other grounds, specifically religion because we have, um what is it three or four hospitals here and you know 400 to 600 nurses in each of the hospitals, has said we're not interested in getting the vaccine. And they're using religious exemption. What is the religious exemption? Well, this is a process that employers need to be very careful when they're going through. They need to. They're allowed to ask what the religion is and providing documentation to show that there is an actual religious belief. And then there has to be an interactive process where the employers and the employee has a conversation to see whether what exactly what accommodation the requesting and whether it's reasonable for the employer to do it. So just because someone has a religious basis for not getting it doesn't mean that the employer have to accept it and let them come to work without being vaccinated. So basically, I can't go out and Well. It doesn't sound like it. I can't go out and join a church that doesn't believe in. I don't know, modern medicine or medical science stuff like that. And then say, Oh, I'm sorry. I just joined this church and so I don't have to take the vaccine. Well, then ploy, ER has has two is able to make some sorts of inquiry to determine whether it's a sincerely held religious beliefs or whether it's really just based on their personal opinions. So it's a very tricky individualized, um, inquiry. Okay, So now let me let me come at this from a different direction. You know, as we've learned during the pandemic, there are quite a few people who just do not need to go to the office. They can work from home. And if you do not want to get a vaccine, then can't your employer, you know, just allow you to work from home. And that takes care of that. You're not a danger to the office that way. I think that that is a possibility for employers who are requiring their workers to be vaccinated. But the question is whether they can still do their job from home. And then with this new Biden this new Biden rules We'll have to see perhaps, for example for federal contractors, and they still may require employees to be vaccinated even if they're working from home, So we'll have to wait and see what the rules actually say. So far. We just had some orders without all the details. Do you anticipate that this is really going to be tied up in the courts for a while? I mean, do you think they're going to be a number of lawsuits? Right. I'm sure there will be a law school suits, but I don't know that they'll be preliminary injunctions to prevent them from going forward for now, so we'll have to wait and see what happens. You know, I think the bottom line is that that the government is trying to encourage everyone to get back in ated. And so that probably will help. Alright, Attorney Arlene Yang joining us here on the cocoa nears live line. Thank you so much for your time. Great Thanks. Have a great day. Alright. Cocoa News time is 7 15. Well.

"For Smith's new album, The Cry of the Heart. And speaking of a Million and one Here are few other numbers from Connie Smith. She released her debut single Once a Day. In 1964. The song was a hit or, in the words of one TV host a smash through. It became the first debut single from a female artist to hit number one on the country charts and stayed there for eight weeks. Now fast forward to 2021 when the song was inducted as the National recording Registry, and Smith is putting on her first album in a decade, which is also her 54th, depending on how you're counting The story goes that Dolly Parton once said There are only three real female singers in the World, Streisand, Ron Stat and Connie Smith. And now you can hear on the new album, Smith, who is now 80 years old and still a performer of the Grand Old Opry. It's as true now as it was at the beginning of her career. Connie Smith joins me now for all of it, Listening party, Connie welcome. Well, thank you, Alison. This mighty nice words. Alternate. I got to live up to them. I'm not sure I can. I know you can and beyond. So you know, it's Howard Harlan. Howard famously said. Country music is three chords and the truth. You said, it's a cry of the heart. What does that mean? It just means that we have the same needs and the same desires and a lot of times the same experiences and it's wonderful to have someone that identifies with you. It makes you not feel so alone and what you're going through. And come to music is, uh, to me. It's not ahead music. It's not a, uh, even a learned music at times. I know I never learned and I never studied any music or learned any music. I don't know. You know, uh, all that stuff, But I I know when I sing, uh, singing from my heart, and it's either something I've experienced or watched in a movie or I knew a friend or somebody and it's something I can identify with. And when I sing Uh, it helps my heart if I'm sad, and I think it helps my heart If I'm happy thing, it helps my heart. When I hear George Jones sing a song it helps my heart. The story goes. The inspiration for this album came when you heard the song. I just don't believe me anymore. What was it about that song that convinced you that you should make an album? Well, it's a song written by Dallas Frazier, who has written 72 of the songs I recorded, He wrote a song years ago called Ollie Oop. He wrote Elvira, That was such a huge hit. Uh, he wrote, um So many of George Jones song so many of like, uh, Charley pride. I mean, Lorrie Morgan. So many people have had smashes, uh, from Dallas. Frazier and he's, uh They started giving them to me in the early sixties, and I had most of so many of my big, bigger on songs. Were written by Dallas and he just He just seemed to read my heart and he started writing songs not only for me but about me at times that he wrote one called Where's my castle about me during one point in my life, and he wrote one called just for what I am, Which is I love that one because that's that's me. You know, I couldn't be anybody else if I tried and don't want to be anybody else. Just My competition is not never with anybody else except myself, and I'm pretty hard on me. My guest is County Smith. The name of the album is the cry of the heart. Let's listen to I just don't.

"The CDC has cautioned the unvaccinated against traveling over a long holiday weekend. A tropical disturbance is heading into the Gulf of Mexico and could reach Louisiana by next week. That's what hurricane forecasters are predicting the system has a 30% chance of developing into a tropical depression in the next five days. If it does reach tropical storm strength, it will be named Mindy. Forecasters at the National Weather Service say it's too soon to be able to tell how much of a threat the system could be the Louisiana or other Gulf states, But it could bring heavy rains to the Gulf Coast, even if it doesn't fully develop into a hurricane. President Biden is ordering a review of classified documents related to the 9 11 terrorist attacks. Lisa Taylor has more as the 20th anniversary of 9 11 looms.

Some 9 11 families hope will shed light on suspected ties between the hijackers in the Saudi Arabian government. I'm Lisa Taylor, The president and first lady are marking the 20th anniversary of the attacks with plans to visit all three sites where the attacks occurred. They will start in New York City, then hit the Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and finally the Pentagon in Washington, D C.

Better weather contributed to the substantial progress made by Cruz in both California and Nevada.

Five years ago the isaacs started actually update that bio mom and dad started singing fifty years ago. Our dads the baby child of seventeen children who his parents were pentecostal preachers. His father was a preacher. They were farmers back in the hills and the hall of eastern kentucky and it was music that brought mom and dad together and the new york city gertie spoke city in greenwich village where a lot of people were discovered like peter. Paul mary and different ones and so they they were. Dad was singing. Bluegrass mama singing folk rock music and they were at the pentecostal family. Ends up on the hippie scene. Right right this is fun. Yeah it'll be a little story here. Her thought he was jewish with the name. Like isaac isaacs. How can you not think that he was not jewish.

Dad would put a base in ben's hand next thing you know when the bass player left ben wind up saying you start playing mandolin when mandolin when she was nine. And i was eleven. When i started playing the guitar and so we've just slowly Become who we are but you can see the influence of the bluegrass side of our father in the folk rock side the hippie movement over mom which explains a lot about this record. We've done a lot of records in the past that have honored the bluegrass side of our father. But this record kind of leans a little bit more towards it americana folk style and you know we give our momma hard time. She still has the feather. She kept those and she was at shea stadium for the first time when the beatles performed and she went to woodstock ask her. She still remembers woodstock but Yeah we're just like a. We've been called a little gospel. Chipmunks we've been called a kosher hillbillies hebrews were all mixed up. I'm a year younger than her. And my brothers. Three years older than me so from the moment we could talk. We could sing harmony full harmony. So cheap labor put you pay you race. You'll have to. You'll really appreciate this from the time i've been a child. I had the envelope program that you talk about. I would write down what it is. And i would put the cash in there and by the time i got married and so i still i still do some of your amazing most of what you talk about. So i'm honored art. Shana and becky isaacs.

No longer with us. Ah working. Larry King passed away at the age of 81 radio broadcasting TV legend Hank Aaron, a baseball legend. Ana and James White of the Broken spoke the owner and operator of the legendary Broken spoke a real honky tonk kind of place. Yeah, man that you talk about an icon. Do you remember the first time you played at the broken spoke? I do I do. And it felt like such a non er it it felt like it. Listen for a local country band. To play at the broken spoke is a big deal that they've got Western bands play there, too. They like country and western. I just want to play there. Yes, but it's a big deal. We'll talk to me about. Maybe we could talk about the broken spoke, of course, but talk to me about James White and his influence on the well. The light music scene of Austin, Texas, James White. It was a big influence, obviously, because he gave a lot of bands. A chance to play there and land and playing the broken spoke gave you some credit. It did. So it was like the Tonight Show. If you will, locally locally for country music, there was no more prestigious gig. For a country band than playing the broken spoke. It was a big deal to break in there and then I was lucky enough to play with the band Chaperone for, uh, several years, and we had a regular Thursday night gig there for several years. So that was my Life I once a week, at least once a week, sometimes twice have is going to be at the broken, spoke and s O, and he was just such a great guy. He was such a wonderfully nice guy, and he was so enthusiastic about the broken spoke and I'll be honest with you. It kind of crave the limelight a little bit. He didn't have a problem and that's fine. Sure, he was a showman and and on Fridays and Saturdays, he would actually get up and introduced the band car and he had the spiel that if you ever saw Do it about how they didn't serve No gray Poupon that the broken spoke, and I can't remember it all now has to have it practically memorized, but, uh so He himself was very, very entertaining. He was always dressed up in this western, where that he was known for, had abandoned to be tied to the to the side. He had a grand old Opry. Look about it. Yeah, Back in the day in the fifties, sixties and seventies, when country Western artists really, really dressed up If your band knew the song rolling in my sweet baby's arms, he was going to sing that with you. That was his song right there. My sweet baby, Let me think about it. The broken spoke. It's kind of like our own little Grand Old Opry. Right here it is. In fact, I even have AH Little museum broken spoke museum that the whole place really is like walking in a museum. It's frozen in time, and the place has not changed much since the day he built. What's the deal with the low top ceiling? Because there's some having some, Some entertainers couldn't stand on this stage because there cowboy hat would touch the roof, right? Benson and Bruce Robison both have to stand there both very, very tall, and they both have just actually stand on the dance floor to Tonto. To be able to be in there but the but the family still owns the place. The family still runs the place and their son in law is the one who's kind of doing most of it now, and there's no talk of it disappearing. I sure hope not sure, in fact, have been plenty of developers that had tried to force him out of the yellow. And if you drive past their own South Lamar, they are literally horse shoed. With with new development around it's all which kind of is a cool look. It kind of gives it makes the broken spoke stand out even more, You know, But you've got all of this. This new retail and new residential all around it literally horse young and then you see the spoke there. The little broken spoke and their Koichi parking lot, so it's pretty cool. So the best thing that you could do right now they Tonto keep this going is to go. You got to go to the broken, spoke and support support. Local music spoke itself in the white family. And he's gonna be missed. There's no doubt about it. Rightly, miss. Well, I saw a post I think from his daughter. Maybe Friday night came home from the hospital and was feeling better doing better. Yeah, and then less than 24. Hours later, she posted again and No, he's going. In fact, I come. I saw it from Jenny. I commented on that as well. Great news. Thanks for keeping us posted.
