"Yesterday show I talked about statues and listeners have chimed in with suggestions already sven. We love that so I up from cat. I'm thinking we should recommend Elizabeth. Denison I read the dawn of Detroit by Tia Miles two summers ago, and was so inspired by the book and Elizabeth. I live in midtown overlooked the more midtown three plus acres project. Yes, building was. was supposed to go there, but greenspace would be so much better and cat envisioned a statue of Denison right in the park there. If you don't know Elizabeth Denison forth was born a slave, and died in eighteen, sixty six, she was both emancipated among the first black women to own property in Michigan, and the first land and Oakland County. She also left behind. Behind enough money to build a church where poor and rich folks could worship together, that's on grow seal, and that's Saint James, Episcopal, church and most recently. She is also a member of the Michigan Women's hall of fame. Which you know after so many years I'd say about damn time, but glad to see that Another one is from Joan straight up. Up aretha Franklin makes perfect sense. A lot of folks talked about like the motown. San Guy absolutely well. That's kind of what I've gone to. I mean like somebody like Marvin Gaye or stevie wonder, maybe the supremes. motown would be an a really obvious choice. You know kind of a nod to the city's rich musical legacy I also thought about Austin sweet. Kind of a dark story, but you know you there I think there bieb interesting way to kind of tell that he was an African American physician who bought a home? It's over. It's still standing today on the east side of Detroit and his white neighbors famously essentially formed a mob and started lobbing. Rocks and and shooting guns into the house because they were so unhappy that. Their neighborhood was being invaded by by a black family. Essentially well, that was super common back in those times. I, remember my Dad, even like my dad's generation, talking about how a black family moved into a neighborhood within a week, somebody would get a pickup truck and just pull the Portuguese off. As just common back then. Yeah, yeah, absolutely, and then I also thought you know frankly with all the efforts around kind renaming what used to be called Harmony Park in downtown Detroit as Paradise Valley Black Bottom. It'd be good to have something marking that former African American neighborhood, which essentially is today is now paved over by three, seventy, five, and I seventy five in Detroit. Detroit but this was a vibrant neighborhood. The city called it slums, but there were there were thriving black owned businesses pharmacies, the hospitals there were record stores entertainment venues theaters a very important neighborhood in Detroit's history. Oh, for sure and one of the places I think about that. Remember when we interviewed Marsha Battle Philpott force the I think was the Aretha it was. Yet episode Yup after Retha. passed away, so her dad owned Joe's record shop, and so that would be a great place to commemorate and kind of tie in with his music history. Be Kind of an on ramp for folks I think a lot of people still need. I mean I remember we did that. Three seventy five piece I was stunned with how many people did not know the history of the black bottom, and I three seventy five, and that sort of thing. I was stunned by the reaction that TV..

They lived and that's what they practice the band so. I was like maybe twenty four twenty five years. This is the coolest Shin ever. I can't believe you're. This is awesome so psyched. I can actually say practiced in a band downtown in. The ultimate I, honestly like our time the the time period that we live downtown was. Like no other in in downtown Detroit, because it was starting the culture, starting to change, the suburban kids were starting to move down there and and live and cool off and practicing bands in the bar scene. WAS APP man. people were still leery of coming downtown, but you'd still come down for the sporting events. There is a throbbing nightlife that was restaurants and stuff like that, so you could go down there and make it, and you didn't need a car. You can and walk to work to take. The people mover everywhere mourning. Ever live above a bar. Before. Now, but my last job I basically lived inside of it. Fair enough. I did I lived above coach's corner over in harmony. Park. When it was over there and it was cool. We're on the third floor, but like on Friday and Saturday night they'd have Dj. You could hear the music you need people even up on the third floor.

"It's Saturday December seventh and So we are really excited to host coaster next Noelle night this coming up weekend. Well and it's it's Kinda cool to see something that goes so many hours but I think one of the reasons needs to because it covers a lot of ground it's kind of broken up into two sides to correct so we changed our format slightly last year and We have kind of a afternoon tonight. Time portion in in our nighttime portion so the area north of Warren Avenue which really kind of consists of our cultural centers all the museums Wayne State University are participating from one o'clock to seven o'clock in that kind of helps kind of transition into the night time and then our traditional Noel night hours are five ten o'clock so most of our institutions that are south of Warren Avenue Avenue including the Diaz Omo. Cad You know a number of our churches and businesses and restaurants down there are going to be open from five to ten and part of the reason why we had to do that was has to try and create a better user experience The congestion for years had gotten horrible In two thousand seventeen or sixteen actually you know the DIA got over twenty thousand people in there doors within a five hour time period. The event has just gotten too big for everyone involved and then the traffic congestion was awful and then on top of that. You'd get people like you know you need to do this over multiple weekends within December when we just can't afford to do that instead to train kind of spread it out over a longer time period gives people more time to kind of see and do at all. Although the caveat here is there's no way you can see and do it all all at Noel night. I mean I'd like to see somebody. Somebody try I feel like that would be an epic adventure like start right at one. Then start the clock and try to like check off as many as you could. We should probably check that out. I mean we could probably come up with a really amazing award for that but I would be really interesting to see someone try. We've had people do like we're GONNA go see every dance it's Performance or we're going to every possible may contain activity for our kids. I've seen families to do that. But I've never seen anyone able to see and do it all because the thing is too is you're going to want to spend some time at each individual place. I got the note that there's a little bit of change when it comes to Woodward Avenue because I remember in previous years that Woodward Edward would be shut down in places for things there's a little bit of changes with that this year share hits another. I you're not having closed down so for years up through two thousand sixteen ecksteen Woodward was always closed down between the DIA and the Public Library and that was where weed hosts our end of the evening salvation. Army sing along. Well now that we have the q line we are no longer able to close down Woodward in fact you know we had it partially closed on our last electricity's festival you know in two thousand seventeen seventeen as well but that's not. We can't do that anymore And I think a lot of people forget that the queue line has a major impact on events and I think the thanks giving day prayed is one of the few events that is grandfathered in where they're able to close Woodward down obviously to the parade But we've had to kind of re rethink our footprint for or Noel night and soon our our end of the evening sing-along is now hosted in a Wayne State. Parking lot at the corner of Casson Canfield doesn't have quite the same. I'm feeling we know that for sure but it's a great block. It's a great block. It's where shy Nola Jolly Pumpkin city. Bird nest and you know MOTORCITY brewing works in traffic jam. Restaurant are located so it has a ton of action over there and it's really kind of in the middle of the footprint as it continues to grow each year and so this strikes me also as you're talking about congestion earlier this helps out with parking right. Makes it a little bit easier to put you know you can park a little bit closer to different the things because it's kind of spread out a little bit in theory. I mean it should help with parking. I think we all have a problem here with educating the public where to park and I mean I think we're still oh part of this car culture here where people expect to be able to park right next to the place where they want to visit. And it's not always possible. I mean it's Detroit is a big city like any any other big city and generally. You're going to walk a little bit and this is a huge event that it's just easier to get around by foot so we highly suggested a lot of people park in the areas That they normally wouldn't park. I mean there's a number of really safe Wayne State Park Index That are all outlined on our website. which is no all night dot org? Because is I think a lot of people come in and they think I know the Detroit Institute of Arts. I WanNa Park right next to it. And that's not always possible. And so we're encouraging people to explore some mother ducts to park. Just because you'll get in out quicker you'll be closer to a lot of other venues instill get over to the dia on foot very easily. And then also we also offer free shuttles titles that were loop around the footprints you can always jump on a free shuttle and get around fairly quickly. Well I mean it's all beautiful areas of town so that's really you know good to walk and kind of experience Detroit outside of your car. I think it's so important to do that. One of the things is that like I know. A lot of people. Think about that cultural center but in fact there are three three hubs right. Yeah there's a lot of new. There's a couple of new hubs this year so I mean obviously the cultural center is one major hub. That's it's part of people's traditions each year and I mean the same. Great programming is going on there. Then we also have another hub at the corner of Woodward and Warren Avenue. It's property that's owned by Wayne State. University they they This is the third or fourth year where they're hosting their winter art marquette and it's a really lovely collaboration between Wayne State and town. There's jain enormous tent where they have a ton of entrepreneurs in their selling you know their their products. There's also a number of Detroit based or Wayne State Artists in alumni that are in there selling their artwork. We also have a really large beer tent. It's a craft beer tent that sponsored by eight degrees Plato. That is a great place by the way if anyone hasn't checked Out Eight degrees Plato. This would be your opportunity to do it right. So they're they're doing our beer. Tampa also their storefront over in CASS avenue. That south of Mac Avenue is also open for Noel night and It's a lovely opportunity to kind of experience this new area we also will have A square dancing performance at the beer tent Through hours think of seven and Like five to seven o'clock and so I mean that's a whole new experience over there of having performances beer lots of great shopping Lift will be over there as well that will be one of the locations for a ride share. One of the other new hubs that we have this year is Near the Detroit Symphony Orchestra Costra. They have A courtyard over 'em persons called SOSNIK courtyard. And that's where we're we're we're we are relocating. Our annual ICE SCRAPER CHALLENGE DON JR so students from Wayne State University and college for creative studies have been learning how to sculpt ice under a professional ice sculpture. This year it's Randy finch whose some people they know as the Ice Brigade is on the food network and so he comes in and teaches. You know these students how to sculpt ice for years we had done that in front of the Dia and it just doesn't work anymore because of the queue line we we don't have Woodward Avenue closed off anymore so we're testing it out over by the DSL. We also have a really strong performance over in in the cube inside the DSL featuring rank tankeea. So we've got like this really nice hub over there. There'll be lots of carolers outside bars and places to buy snacks. And and then our third hub that I think a lot of people will care about is where we're doing our and of the evening Salvation Army Sing along so are no no L. Knight bands and again is located at the corner of CASS. ASS in Canfield. That's right near where shy Nola and Jolly Pumpkin is. You know we'll have entertainment on that stage all the way from five through ten o'clock there is is also an area to buy you know Baked goods there's an area to make Craft Activities Holiday based craft activities for kids. So so that's kind of an area that's kind of growing activity and we'll get people out into the neighborhoods more to kind of see a number of the small businesses that have been doing so well in midtown so many good ones over were there. I imagine most of them are going to be open for this one. Oh Yeah I mean I think no. All night is a really great GR- grossing revenue night for a lot of the businesses. It's also really great. Wait wait you know when people don't WanNa go out shopping on Thanksgiving or black Friday. This is a another at night to get it done. You can buy a lot of really great unique gifts for family and friends and it's just a great way to see all the development. That's here in midtown. I swear each year we have more and more businesses that are opening up. Some of them are more experienced base. Some of them are stores. So there's just a lot for people to see that you're not gonna find anywhere else if you haven't done a shopping trip. Rip along that Cazin can field area. I mean twenty thirty places at this point. It's absolutely crazy and then you've got the restaurants you've got. I mean it just originally kind of great place any time of year but this is a really good time to check it out. Are there any specific acts or things that you know. I know it's hard to pick favorites. Because you're you're part of right but are there anything specifically that you're looking forward to that you know that you're going to check out. Well there's a number I am really excited. That one of our big headlining performances is Saint Paul New- broken bones Were do they ever perform free anywhere. Maybe occasionally but this will be a free performance over at the garden theatre which is located. Did on the block right next to a great lakes coffee and they're doing a performance at nine pm The Gabriel brass band will be opening before them. We'll have of a DJ over in the theater Dj Parana had from like five to seven forty five. There'll be a fun spot. There will be some vendors in the lobby as well selling some really nice Wears I think that'll be a really amazing ban. Doing courage people to arrive early for that Just because of the interest is huge. I mean this is a really big national act coming in I'm also really excited at motor suit motor city brewing. Works Warehouse Right near Shy Nola. We're bringing in an act from Portland Oregon A guy named Earl Thomas and his band the pain and what's interesting about him is that he's almost scathed years old right now and he just started his soul music career not that long ago he was back in the business in the fifties and sixties did a lot of backup singing for major African American singers. And then I I don't know his career just kind of stopped for a while because it's a hard business to make it an. Oh Yeah and then he is back added added and he's got an amazing career right now so we're super excited to have him come perform the sole holiday performance that will be at nine o'clock and and then another one. I'm really excited about Is We're bringing MSU Jazz Professor Etienne Charles and In his band from New York to to perform a creole Christmas performance. At the right museum and that'll be at six. PM and this we've brought him here before but it is such such a high performance like if you WanNa get out of your seats and dance. This is fantastic. I mean he's a jazz professor by day. You know bandleader trumpeter. By Hi this is someone to really watch his really up and coming in his late twenties really making a name for himself worldwide. And we're excited to have because the quality quality of music is just utterly fantastic well and you mentioned the Gabrielle Brass Band and then the Krill one of the things. I always remind people of is that you know Detroit and New Orleans have a lot of ties together because we're one of where some of the only French founded cities that have really stuck it through and so there are some things that are kind of like assured between us and I think that whole like it love of music and jazz and things like that is one of them. I agree and I mean we love having different jazz performances differences. I mean we try to have a variety of music so that. There's something for everyone at Noel night but jazz is really big. Blue's really big. I mean clearly. It wouldn't be no all night without a Thorn Davis performance. Of course you gotTa have their Annetta. She's doing her annual. You know performance at the first universal as UNITARIAN UNITARIAN universalist church at nine hundred. I had a friend who went there for years. They never could say and So we're really looking forward to that the other cool thing too is. It's a really great lineup. Over there our The car center who's now located in the in the Park Shelton lower level. That's right because they were unharmed. Park were in harmony park. For a long time. They now have have their new Contemporary Art Gallery space in the Park Shelton but they have the series of they've done for years. It's called trae jazz in the city. And they've partnered with Michigan in State University. The Jazz Music Orchestra Orchestra over there led by Rodney Whitaker. And then they're going to be opening for Thorn Atta so I mean there's going to be a lot of really great jazz big band. Blues over there There's other bands School groups performing ahead of time as well but that leads to a whole other thing is what I get really excited about..

"But you know naturally when you're being interviewed by someone and it's an article where everyone's telling their story. It's different than for from my perspective what happened. which is that in other words? By the time I got the kid rock. Then that was that but the question that you're asking how did you get your kid. Yeah right right how kid rock yet to me however right around okay. So I was at a club in New York City and I can't remember the name of it but I was with a client of mine named Jamie Houston Jamie later. Went on to become a big writer for Disney. He wrote two or three of the top songs in high the school musical. Wow Yeah yeah if you look his name you'll see that. And and at the time he was signed to Warner Chapel music and he was an up and coming writer producer and he had a production company and he was looking to sign artists to the production company so so he and his girlfriend and my wife. Nancy and I went out one night. And we're at this club and we see this woman performing on stage and we're like Oh my God. This woman's amazing you know Jamie said would you go up to her with me and you know I wanNA sign or to the production company so I say sure so. After the biggest show we approached the woman I said. Hi I'm Tommy. This Jamie and the woman was carig regard. Who is one of the most successful songwriters? Now was a judge on American idol. Oh yeah wow right. So she turned to me and says well. If you if you want to do anything with me you have to talk to my publisher and she hands me a card of her publisher now. The publisher was a guy named Bryan Brinckerhoff. And and so he had heard some things about me from my friends in Nashville. One friend is to take your job braves and so when I called Brian Brian Up. He said hey you know I heard really good things about you from John and You Know Cara is is not you know. You can't do a production and deal with her. She's already on her way. And you know but I just got a call from a manager named Steve Hutton. And and he has an artist named Kid Rock and kid rock is looking for an attorney. He's had two or three attorneys and things haven't worked out for whatever no reasons and would you be interested in talking to this guy and he said you know he's he's a personality. That was the word he said he's personality. Alex and you sound like the kind of a guy that could do a good job representing him. 'cause representing him as like part of it would would be you know helping the manager and you know really integrating into the team so I said sure. Why not You know I was getting a referral from publisher so so naturally I would be interested. And then I called Steve Houghton and we spoke and we hit it off and then he said I'm going to have bob call you and then Bob up. Call me on a Saturday. When spoke for about a half hour and he said hey man I really did where you're coming from and you know I wanna work with you and then I think about two? She were three weeks later. I flew to Detroit and Saturday afternoon. Don't remember much of what happened after the. Yeah that's probably a good thing And then and then we just kept going from there you know. We started the shopping process assets and got to deal with Jason Flom Lava Atlantic records. Wow and then from there you know everything just started to catch on and become dot com. What legendary is today? Wow how how long after you met him. Did you go see him. Live perform live I because see there was. Yeah there was the way I remember. It probably was a month or two because the anr person Andy Indycar was gonNA was already sorted into this and he was flying into see Bob and so Carpet I flew in together. I first to see the first show and then after that show. That's when we went back and convince Jason Flom to fly in and then Jason flew in To the State Theater and then after that you know it wasn't much longer maybe two weeks and the deal is done. What what was it about with him? That made you WanNa work with him. Will there was a buzz on him. Right so bob bit already done a lot of the work himself. I mean he was selling out clubs he was selling out. I remember. I'll never forget. I sat down with Jason Flom. And he said You know this Guy Kid rock selling on our state theater. I've got matchbox twenty two million records. And you know we're we're almost like not selling out as well as he can right and and they're inaccurate. You know two million records so the body created a lot of the The buzzing the excitement on his own so that was a case where I was just again connecting the dots right. You look at all the people who are involved in all the people who are interested in it right Of course I recognized what he was doing. You know there was a little bit of a discrepancy because at the time but now is it just been dropped Telling me you know a white guy doing hip hop and you know and I was like. WHOA WHOA WHOA wait a minute? This guy is not doing hip hop okay. If you go to see his live show it's rock and roll is rock and roll can be doesn't have a DJ name. Dogu Cracker onstage spinning records. Yeah does he have a lot of the robot. Oh the you know. Some of the apart. Hip Hop artists have yes but in its essence. This was a rock and roll show Why and it's interesting that as he's progressed later in his year that that's that's where the show leans means more towards country rock right that that John wrote music right so from that point on? Punish you're going on your career. How did you end up meeting Frankie Jason Turner and let's I want to get into Zen bowl dot sure? Sure sure. Sure Frankie well. All roads lead to Brian though. Yeah Ryan had called me because he wanted me to meet with Mark Farner from grand funk railroad because mark had some contractual issues with the record company that he had dealt with years ago so and then. Brian said to me as as Brian would right. Oh yeah and I have this song writer. I want you the knee. And he's worked with us at Harmony Park from you know the time he was a kid him so on and so forth and I said sure so I I met with mark and when that meeting was over. Brian was still at Harmony Park. I went downstairs and we had lunch. And Frankie I was introduced to Frankie and and You know I had heard some of the stuff that Frankie had done with gentlemen mutineers and but I really really liked the music that he had done. But I just fell in love with Frankie as a person and so then okay so from there it you know we we just started talking and we really got to know each other really well and I said you know. I'm not really looking in this instance. I was GonNa do something with you. I don't just want to do it as a lawyer. I'd WanNa do it. As a partnership and form a company would with former partner from company in a production company and he was into that and so. That's then you know we moved forward with John bulldog entertainment which is our production and Publishing Company. Tell how did the Zen bulldog how did that name come about that was Frankie's idea And and you know I was saying to him one day a I get. I get spastic with certain things. We actually with a lot of things in my corporate guy on the phone. It's like well. What what's the name of his company I'm like I don't know Frank Frank? He's like the most steady personality I've ever known in my life and it's almost like she manages me and so I hi call him up on freaking out. I'm like hey we need. We need a name. I don't know I don't know what name you know. Think of a name and you know. And so we when Frankie and I met what what I feel like we really bonded on besides the fact that I thought his music was great. And you know you talked again about values and principles right. I felt like we come from the same place even though he grew up somewhere. Far from me Besides the music and everything what we really bonded. aww We started talking about medication so thank he was doing some meditation and I said well. That's really interesting. I've been meditating for thirty thirty years. Oh okay got Taichi right and then I started telling on 'em about all the books I've read this subject And you know he was like Kinda surprised as most people are right And so he came up with the idea of Zen bulldog entertainment. You know I think there's it's a parent who is presented. WHO's the I really loved? It ain't yeah. It's a great story at my name. So what's your favorite book drew My favorite book well on in that area the Yoga Sutras of baton. Julie which are like the you know the Sanskrit tax of Yoga But I read a lot of Lot of things on Buddhism uh-huh eastern religion. Oh Wow I read a lot of books on religion. That's interested in martial arts. Yeah no I didn't I didn't know that. Yeah no no I do. I'm really You know I'm I'm keeping into it but I'm not fanatical but I'm very knowledgeable about it Yeah I I did. You have mentioned that we've had talks talks about that kind of stuff and it's my sister. I was saying you know she's I was talking to you. Know you really need to get into doing just a little bit of Yoga a little bit. Because I'm not that kind of person I said. If Tommy Valentino. There's no there's no type of person that can do this and then she started doing it. So yeah there's there's a lot of value to it and you want to necessarily think that that I would do it but it also also helps in business a lot Because it keeps you balanced and keeps you focused and it teaches you to live in the moment so that You know if I'm not crying when my favorite artist is debut in her movie at I say that it helps with that center of gravity. Yeah Yeah yes. That's that's just being present is an in the moment. That's what that is. And so you know. Frankie was aware that that I had this then side right and and so I think that had a lot to do with you know it is well even know the reality is I say Frankie's more than most of the time uh-huh than I am And I'm bulldog most of the time but there's a lot of times when When we have conversations and I'd like to I think that Zen in you know saying to him? Here's what you need to do this that kind of thing. You go pardon whenever I'm sorry you're both equal parts. You know what I mean like I do feel like they're bulldog each one of you and there there's more of a presence of at different times both of you are are very much you you both are Xeni and the bulldog which I think for John I that works out very well. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah No. It's it's I think it's it's a great combination and again if you were to ask me. What inspired inspired this partnership It was the fact that when we started talking it was about meditation. Wow that's interesting you know. That makes a Lotta Sense. Now that I think of Because obviously with the whole center of gravity we were very excited for Raqi but we were also also very excited for Frankie because I do feel like he he really has been grinding it for so long and now it sorta or to make sense with the whole zen being present in the moment. That's probably what has helped you guys day in it so long because because it's it can be very discouraging this industry and you know it seems like a lot of people just can't stick with it to get through it. Well here's the interesting thing about that. Our attitude is always been. We're going to keep doing this no matter what right right because when you genuinely like someone why would you not want to talk to them. Every day.

"Kick-starting big plans city works to spur action on long-stalled development projects. Yes. There's a whole whole group large group of of redevelopment projects in Detroit mid-size hundred department type things. That the city has awarded over the past several years that for one reason or another having a hard time getting off the ground. So the city doing a big review talking to these folks trying to see what can we do to get shovels in the ground in the next three to six months? They're putting pressure on partly because there's there's some out there a recession the next couple of years, which would make it even more difficult to get the project started if they can get more of them underway. They're more likely to finish them, obviously includes which projects such as paradise valley. Harmony park redevelopment and many others. We have a big long list. Hopefully, hopefully, they'll have some success in in getting these projects moving. Yeah. Well, certainly would hope so because we've had a lot of success with a lot of projects thus far. I would like to can't always stay hot and pushing and win. They developed and real estate development is complicated. Putting together financing and clear title in and this. And that is you know, it's it's it's not an easy business. Interesting that that Delphi technologies. I had to do a double take when I got my super-secret early Inc. Still wet copy of Crain's Detroit business over the weekend at the house. I look twice at this story with with what's going on with a new CEO at Delphi technologies. Doc. Yeah. They they've hired Richard out to to run to run the company. He is of course, the son of dick Dow who was the longtime Boston American Axle, both his sons were executives. There is other son is still the CEO mcdavid CEO now, right? Yes. Yup. Yup. He's divide that Richard taking the reins at Delphi. Big challenge. This is the part of Delphi that that was the the power powertrain business the fancy electronics business editor time when really the, you know, the makers are turning away from from gas powered engines toward electric, so it's it's company. That's that's. Flex for a while. All right. Well, we certainly wish him well. And he's got a great company. We were we were there from the beginning of Delphi. JT Battenberg the third who was given their project with the belief that it would fail, and he wouldn't let it fail and that was a long long story long long road overs over the last twenty five years. The rumblings column says you have some news that Dave Hillenbrand who just finished up chairing the appropriations committee in the state Senate is going to join a lobbying firm east going directly from from from the Senate to to to lobbying. He's joining the Kelly costarring lobbying firm founded by by impart by former attorney General Frank Kelly. It's not necessarily surprising news. We'll get people talking for sure because because it has long been criticism of people going directly from government to to the lobbying. There's been a passing of the torch. I spoke to Keith Crain that too long well, probably around Christmas to say merry Christmas and all of that. But he talked about basically passing the torch to son Casey who has been president for a while. Now, it's Casey that's that's writing the editorial in Crain's Detroit business, and he did a fine. One on the auto show. Matter of fact, came case Casey is as publisher of Crain's Detroit going to be rating is gonna be writing columns, and he made a debut this week. Really good. Really good Columbine. The auto show taking a part of you know, why it sees the need to change and besides just moving from January to June. But really changing the whole shape of this show to include more more more interactive exhibits, outdoor stuff that sort of thing a really strikes optimistic tone on the opportunity that this provides. Of course, has a huge economic impact here. And and it really needs to succeed in this transition at a time when Otto shows are changing in the automakers are a mess less than less and less valuable at least in their old attorneys. I hope they remember just how valuable this one is to the city right half billion dollars worth of importance to our area. Mike Lee, always a pleasure Super Bowls. Yeah. Right..
