Go and still have connection with them even now but at the time it was just awkward and weird and but you getting along and we had a lovely breakfast at cafe de mon and did the benes awesome coffee yes and then we walked around french quarter all morning. Good morning just chatting and it was a lot of fun. It was a lot of fun and then when that was over we by the time we finish breakfast and got done walking in sightseeing we went back to the hotel and it was time for the bar takeovers. The afternoon again. We missed every workshop. Stuff on our schedule. I don't even other looked at this point. We're just like when does the bar takeover happened because the first one was pat. O'brien yeah and we were excited to go to pat o'brien because we had been there in one thousand nine hundred three thousand nine hundred three so when we were dating well as about say we had lots of great memories but we all the memories. Were a little sketchy drunk. there's pictures that's that's how we can reconstruct what happened in one thousand. Nine hundred eighty at pat o'brien's looking at the picture. It was fun.

They had that kind of totally cornered off for everybody. Yeah so for this so this was not a complete bar. Takeover right this is this is the are really the only one that wasn't a complete bar. Takeover pat brian so huge so but they did cordoned off. The patio area for a patio. Area was off limits to anybody. Who wasn't and i didn't have the credentials right. So we're chatting with this other couple or i was chatting with him and you came up to me and you said did you say i said look. Who's over there. Yeah and i turned around and it was for you listeners. Do we talk. We did talk about him. I don't think we know al. Gosh well i think that audio is on the cutting room floor. Something really yeah. Dang well really fast Fast step back in time at our second trip to kellyanne ever here in tampa we went and i had bound this profile of this amazingly handsome man on stc and we were sitting at kelly davis from our area. We were sitting at kellyanne today and he was sitting at the bar. This incredibly gorgeous man and tristan said you should go talk to him. I was terrified. And i said no. And then some woman came and sat next to him and they were chatting then they got up and i said all right. I'm going to do it. And long story short. I went over and talked to him and we had a great conversation. Oh yeah it was. We had never played was early early early on the process. We had our play date scheduled with our single guy but we had not done it yet. Actually that was like the following tuesday. I play date scheduled so anyways this incredibly handsome smart charming amazing man at the bar kellyanne conway was wanting to actually hook up that particular night and we were. I was so young and naive. And i didn't really pick up on it that he was saying. If you wanna go we're going to go and we ended up not going with him. Which was fine. Because our i play date was with someone we'd had multiple dinners with and things like that. Who was lovely as you guys did. Hear that story so we never connected with this guy but had kept in touch with him off and on and he's a very active member of the lifestyle community to put it nicely. So we've seen a kellyanne other times but we are never really crossed in the right way and then there. He was in new orleans at the bar at o'brien's like holy shit. So i said. I'm going to go talk to kind of time. I saw rod stewart going into starbucks. An apple different story. I'm going to talk to him. Ira tucker rod stewart of not letting that bobick get away. Nothing really excited to have with rod. He thought i was an idiot. But that's all right. So i went up to this guy at the bar and i stood there and he looked up and he said what are you doing here and i said probably does as you're doing so we chatted for a few minutes and he was there with a lady friend of his and it was hysterical. Be in new orleans at a bar.

And someday when i fucked that man it's going to be easing because now i have three years of experience. Well if you don't count the rear that we've had to sit out. But but anyway so he was there and that was just hysterical. It's one of those things that you can't you can't believe happened so i came back to the table.

Nobody seen or heard before defer to jump off the states. All right. He jumped off the stage went down in your audience FANG to the people that was unheard of. All right. So that was something that kind of opened the door. Being away. Gus will had opened many doors by the nineteen fifties. The traveling groups helped develop a musical ecosystem of radio stations performance venues record labels that could sustain their careers over decades. So many of these guys who came out of quartet, and they bring that soulful nece, they bring the swag gospel, DJ and scholar. Deborah Smith Pollard, they bring that ability to reach out to their audience. They really wanna pull the on and certainly within the black community because they still have all of that presence that great voice that ability to connect with them. But with great popularity with something to sail comes money, and responsibility. Mcgaw? Bo you. That's the pressure to cross over to sign deals with secular music companies mounted for the best. Singers, it presented an excess sensual spiritual issue for the groups who wanted to stay together and sing gospel music..

The Dixie hummingbirds have stayed true to their gospel roots for more than ninety years, they'd seen how be trained their base could tear people apart, but musicians and promoters have asked them hundreds of times to consider recording secular music, this came to a head in nineteen seventy three when they received a call from singer songwriter, Paul Simon. He asked them to collaborate with him on the tune loves me, like a rock Jerry Zoltin wrote the definitive history of the Dixie hummingbirds. He told us about the group's discussion after the Popstars invitation. Should we do this is this, you know, not being true to our audience bitchy advice? God was you know, why just preach to the choir? You've already got the choir. Are there ways to reach out and get people who might not necessarily be? Part of the choir and bring them into the fold so to speak the Dixie hummingbirds felt it allows me like a rock with a song that fit the spirit of what they wanted to get across the message that they felt was worthwhile getting across and so they they recorded loves me like a rock with Paul Simon. Coma. After all it was a gospel song, and the money was good the same year, they recorded this version with Paul Simon. They recorded their own version and won a Grammy award. Despite the high profile collaboration they insisted on being the same Dixie hummingbirds with the same values Dade always held IRA.

Now, you're talking about time in down allow the thousand. Money. The group had never seen before. And would never see again. But James Davis. Then the leader of the group said I can't say no to men I gave them my word. So that's what I would. Good nature a vote and everybody said we want to you want. He knew they were gonna file because miss Davis was a man on the ad to do say.

And so all of that helped to propel gospel music beyond what people think of as the small church venue and bring it out to the wider world. The Dixie hummingbirds were hungry to join their reigns. The court tits in this period, wore matching outfits and developed intricate stage choreography. As the group's got better the competition to top each other group, pretty intense.

A gospel quartet is a group usually early on a cappella where the four voices are represented in harmony gospel historian, Jerry Zoltin of Penn State university wrote the definitive history of the Dixie hummingbirds. The typical structure would be a lead voice who saying overtop, and then middle voices who would carry the harmony backup. And then usually underneath a Beijinger who would pump out the bottom and keep the rhythm going. You know, and I think the groups were acapella in the beginning. Because frankly, they they didn't have the money to buy musical instruments to take lessons. They worked with. What was right there handy in front of them trail-blazing court tits like the golden gates and the heavily gospel singers pass through Spartanburg touring churches and revivals on what people called the gospel highway. There were hunt. Hundreds of these groups so in the Dixie hummingbirds IRA Tucker saw ticket out of town, his childhood friend. William Bobo was already singing bass with the group.

He mimicked the stage moves and vocal acrobatics of his idols the singers of the Golden Gate, coretec the Fairfield four and the heavenly gospel singers, his favorite group was a cortex from a few towns over the Dixie hummingbirds said. They had a style of saying that I used to hear them on Sunday morning. Here's the late IRA Tucker speaking with NPR's, Terry gross in one thousand nine hundred eighty four really like their hominy. You know, I had heard them a good while and I was just trying to keep the train of what they were doing Davis. He created that style. You know, he created humming. Birds sound and it was it was tremendous yummy. You know, he had a beautiful sound baked in he's talking about James Davis. The longtime leader of the Dixie hummingbirds Davis established the group in one thousand nine hundred twenty eight after he witnessed the success of other travelling gospel court tits. A gospel quartet a group usually early on acapella where the four voices are represented in harmony gospel historian, Jerry Zoltin of Penn State university wrote the definitive history of the Dixie hummingbirds. The typical structure would be a lead voice Xu Shang over top. And then middle voices who would carry the harmony backup. And then usually underneath a Beijinger who would pump out the bottom and keep the rhythm going. You know, I think groups were Capella in the beginning because frankly, they didn't have the money to buy musical instruments to take lessons. They worked with. What was right there handy in front of them trail-blazing court tits life, the golden gates and the heavily gospel singers pass through Spartanburg touring churches and revivals on what people called the gospel highway. There were hung. Hundreds of these groups so in the Dixie hummingbirds IRA Tucker saw ticket out of town, his childhood friend. William Bobo was already singing bass with the group. And I remember what he told him. He said well later on I'll come back, and I've try to get you in the group, and I guess about a couple of months, maybe three months, they came back to say, Mr. Davis came back, pop deterrent, thirteen Irish son IRA Tucker, Jillian says the Dixie hummingbirds James Davis recognized his father's talents any as IRA's mother. If he could join the group, so he wouldn't as my grandmother would be all right for my dad to go on the road with the group. She made him promise that he would take care because she felt he stood a better chance with that. And I went to hear them at night, and I've been with me ever since. Hey, john. Yeah. This was in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight for the next couple of years. They would mostly toured the south on the same gospel highway as iris idols. Yeah. The Dixie hummingbirds would get in their car and travel from little town too little town. They called it. Wildcat Jerry's Alton says before the interstate highway era. Jim crow rule the two lane roads. These black gospel quartet wrist real danger. They didn't know where they would go from day to day. They created a path future rock and soul musicians would navigate their would go to a little town and back in those days radio is a far more available sort of thing they'd knock on the door and said, hey, can we sing on your radio station and most of the time that would be okay..

"Much Nike lost and market. Capitalization today, not not person per share of stock. But overall four point two billion dollars four point good good. Move nike. Four point two billion dollars banished because they with Colin Kaepernick as their as their new face. Meanwhile, as as Corey Booker and Kamala Harris and the rest of the Democrats made fools out of themselves today on Capitol Hill. Did you see this thing about Eric Holder? Another guy who wants to run for president, the former attorney general. He had his picture taken with somebody at the Aretha. Franklin funeral was. It was calypso Louis. Rush Limbaugh calls him Louis Farrakhan, member Obama had his picture taken with Louis Farrakhan. And then the photographer wanted to help out and so he sat on the photo for twelve years because he knew it would not exactly aid Obama's first campaign or a second campaign for that matter for president. So apparently holder doesn't have the same instincts or the photographer doesn't have the same instincts. So now, we have a photograph of Eric Holder with Louis Farrakhan out on the internet is Eric Holder. Louis Farrakhan's man, very good grace, very good. Remembering that lie? With wingmen with wingmen like Louis Farrakhan, you don't really need any zeros bearing down on your plate. Do you because he's gonna he's gonna take you out all by himself? Here's a headline from the from the Daily Mail. They had the Caribbean festival yesterday. The big parade. NYPD requests. Fifteen ambulances in three minutes for quote impacts an unconscious unconscious partygoers at Brooklyn's annual Caribbean festival that began with an early morning shooting. Let's see the event which has been marred by violence. Stephen death in recent years had a rough start today when revellers reported seeing fights gunshots and one man was shot in the back. And again, this was the head. This was the tweet on breaking nine one one. Developing NYPD requesting at least fifteen ambulances within three minutes for unconscious and intoxicated victims at the West Indian day parade on eastern Parkway in Brooklyn. Is this is what we're talking about here who knows eight four four five hundred forty two forty two Elsa. You're next with Howie Carr. Go ahead Elsa. I howie. Thank you for taking my call. Thank you. Yeah. Welcome. I have an idea to stop the fighting between the right and the left what I would like to see is the left in one part of the country like the show all the sheltered state second half and the right in the north well, put up a wall day can elect narrow Democratic Party organization, whatever they can. Did you say all the right voters would be in the north? I don't I don't wanna stay up here. Much longer in the winter. I want to go into the south. I wanna go someplace where it's warm Elsa. All right. You want? If you want to climb the wall. All right. Thank you. Thank you. Also, I appreciate it. John, you're next with Howie Carr. Go ahead. John. John. Go ahead. Yeah. I don't hear too much about your lookalike guy. Wesley Clark anymore. I guess you still around Wesley Clark. There's a name from the past. How come you're saying? He's a local guy. He's a is. How was he a local guy is he for mass? I'd say was. I'd say was local I just said he was a lookalike a look alike for me Wesley Clark. Okay. General Leslie Clark is a compliment though. Thank you. I appreciate that. I I saw him at a diner once in Manchester, and I didn't say there's my d'appel ganger. I didn't I okay. But I wanted to talk about the Senator from Connecticut, Richard Blumenthal. Yes. Isn't that guy? Isn't he served in Vietnam for so many years, and they caught him on it and found out? He never went over there. Yes. He is. That is the same. Yeah. Yeah. He wants to talk about it. He he doesn't trust the Trump, and he doesn't trust cavenaugh. And here are the guys found out liar, and he's acting like he's more integrity than they do. I know how John John how bad does it have to be you know, who called him out on that lie? The New York Times. Really? Yeah. I know somebody off at the New York Times do that. But I wanted to say about him is he kicks referring to President Trump as an unindicted co-conspirator. I didn't know that that was just stab list. Well, yeah, I know it's all ridiculous. Speaking of stolen, valor. You have a you also have Tom Harkin, and I can never say at enough that f Chuck Todd of NBC used to be the spokesman for Tom Harkin, and other stolen valor guy. He's not quite as bad as Blumenthal. He flew he flew a cargo plane in the Pacific theater. But he always claimed until he got busted. I don't know who busted him. But he got busted as as claiming to be a combat pilot. So Todd is is his sparring. And I'm sure he's a spread that that BS around what he was working for him. And so now Chuck Todd has got an essay in the Atlantic used to be a magazine now bits, basically a website on the Atlantic say, I've been a journalist by entire life. And I'm shocked that all these people like Sean Hannity who are Ingram. Tucker Carlson, they're not real journalists. Unlike me. I mean, I wasn't even going to mention that today grace until the until you know, he brought up Richard Blumenthal. But I mean, Chuck Todd is a real journalist come on. I mean, let me tell you. So by Tucker Carlson, IRA Tucker Carlson is is comes out of the print world. Just like me. I remember what he I'm better what he was working for the weekly standard. When the weekly standard was a decent magazine. And and for and for a democrat operative with a press pass like Chuck Todd to suddenly, you know, beat his breasts and declare the journalist mean come on come on break. Steve Steve Howey else's plan is really taking off on the text line. People are liking this idea. But maybe saying instead of north and south. Let's just give them everything west of the Rockies. Well, it looks like they're getting everything west of the Rockies the way the voting is going, but I I don't know. Let's just win the elections. Let's just the let's make America great again, by the way, another we're having more problems at the polling places here in Massachusetts today with people being told that they one guy said he had an Obama shirt on earlier they told him he couldn't wear it, which is Bs. No bought Mr. no bomb is not on the ballot in Massachusetts. You can wear the shirt and somebody else says that he was just told voting staff made me reverse my maga- Trump shirt. I checked the rules with Massachusetts secretary of state. And they said they were wrong you could wear anything you want. That's not on the ballot. That's VIP. Daniel. Yeah. I mean, you're not supposed to wear a button for a candidate or or if it's a referendum question vote, no on three or whatever. But other than that, you can wear whatever the hell you damn well, please. It's a free country. I have so much swag from the show that I just wore one of my all I want for Christmas is a big tall wall. Sweat shirts. And nobody soft you now did you vote Melton or Southie? Nobody well in the streets in my hometown. Nobody's gonna stop you ward. Six or seven for wearing a wall t shirt, I should've worn my triple. Oh sweatshirt. Triple oh is the bar that used to be on by Whitey. We we thought we got some we got the original jacket there are copies of the original jacket tournament. Sweatshirts? Do you think we should sell those again at Christmas grace, I think super comfortable, they're really nice sweatshirt. Eight really are and their historical there have historical value with. Maybe we will. I liked it. They have no hoods too because the hoods tend to pull down and make you feel like you're choking. But we don't really have a lot of hooded sweatshirts. And it's nice you feel free. No, I I'm not a hooded sweatshirt guy. Either five one six says Chuck Todd is a journalist like you are a chef amid a chef five one six, but I'm a better chef than f Chuck Todd is a journalist eight four four five hundred forty two forty two doc, you're next with Howie Carr. Go ahead, doc. Hi, howie. Hiring teacher, and I've talked government world history. Yeah, I'm finding that the Democrats kind of repeating history. That means we we look back through ancient times or think Democrats you're taking on the role of the national socialist party. The all we all know who they were in the thirties and forties, and he'd always destroy this country in the world. And I think they're taking on I think maybe they're reading Mike. If you remember when that was that was Hitler's own personal testimony. I guess he wrote it when he was in jail after the beer hall putsch in nineteen twenty two or twenty three. But yeah, I don't I don't know if they're they're Nazis. Really? But there there definitely status. And I and I was reading a column today on the internet comparing what they're trying to do too Cavanaugh to what they did the board to Bork, Ted Kennedy got drunk at lunch, and then he came back reeling. And he made this long speech about how Robert Bork with take us back to the days of of a back alley abortions and cl- with with coat hangers. And he said that there would be a rogue cops. And that line really took me back when he broke cops. Because what is the FBI become if not rogue cops with this whole this whole frame up of Carter page at attempted frame up of Carter page in the Trump campaign and Donald Trump junior and the president himself. These are rogue cops. And now, the Democrats are in favour of rogue cops. And that's that's another thing. You doc, doc and tell you we alerted history. Is that often people are societies eventually become what they started out railing against. And now the Democrats who were who were thirty years ago were so concerned about rogue cops and even less than twenty years ago, we're concerned about the Patriot Act now now these rogue cops in the Justice department and the FBI are using the Patriot Act and the and the secret courts, the Faisal courts that were set up to what to allow this surveillance supposedly of of terrorists. Now, the rogue cops are using it against citizens of a different political persuasion. We'll take more calls. We come.
