"Brown Brown one he got mobbed more than Ali. Not so sure. I think it was Ali Frazier. It's a toss up you know but to really arguably amongst the top five most recognizable african-americans of your sure so you know so. Let me draw length reprints for minute? One of the things that some of the folks have been talking to me about is there was multiple personality. Revolution folks talk about like four distinct personalities. Right I is this you have you. You've certainly heard this did you. Did you did you discern the same sort of four? They talk about Steve and shaft in Fred Sanford and Marilyn Monroe like that. You're yeah but I'm not searched. You're out would describe it as four different personalities in pick a number three four five who knows because the so-called personalities were really just about his moods and don't we all have mood swing says much more pronounced in this moods might depend on the music that day or didn't make it might depend on how the show went last night. It might just depend on how he felt when he woke up morning might depend on something that none of us will ever know. That was just purely personal and secret to him. That would motivate a mood. Because you know yeah there was there was I mean you was a comedian. He was hysterically. Funny you know this. He had a great sense of humor. Dripping with sarcasm but funny He could be extremely generous and supportive insensitive. He could also be extremely hard edged and rude and I think the difference was not so much. I don't think it was so much about personalities it's a answer personalities. I think it really was just that he was the kind of person. Maybe this is where he similar miles where he isn't going to employ political correctness or make any attempt to even his moods whereas you and I might say boy. I'm in a bad mood today but I shouldn't take it out wife and I'm going to try to control it. Thanks so much to Allen for a great interview. Thanks to you for listening..

"The days of me talking about politics on. Msnbc and really who doesn't then check out my other podcast democracy ish where with Daniel Moody Mills and arguing strategize about twenty twenty race may black and progressive perspective. This pandemic requires you to have a level of compassion that I don't believe that white people in America have ever had right you can find. Democracy is wherever podcast or streamed all right back to Toray show. There's a moment in the James Brown movie right where Chadwick Bozeman plays James Before Black Panther and this moment stands out to me where he's he's rehearsing the band and he saying like you know what is a Horn. It's ultimately drum. What is this ultimately address All the instruments are ultimately drums. Is that the way that he looked at it. Yes yes yeah when you start looking at and his so-called funk era starting in sixteen let's say sixty seven with called sweat. It was very much of focus on. I mean all the parts were progressive by nature and with the horns. It was never something just mellow. It was like the intonation. The attack of the horn section had to precursor. It had to be bang so when new horns committed to play their part and it might be a simple riff but instead a DA. Which is what you might hear on Stax volt record or a motown record. And that's not meant to put down their horn players. They had great horn players. Just two different approach. But with Brown with dot data it had to be progressive and he realized that they're also carried with it and excitement level to translate it to the state so it was very much like. When he was making her record he was already visualizing. How will this song work onstage? How rides the emotion that the audience? What's going to take the show to the next level? It was all in the same and he said there's a great story in this early on in James's career. He said you know like you know. In small towns that they didn't have television always know what the artists looked like. And you talk about a Little Richard. Show where a little Richard couldn't do the GIG young James before he was way before he's a star he get up and be little. Richard was little every that exactly this great. Well I I talk in the book a little bit about that because the book is in just about James Brown like to think that somebody who's just in black music of sixties in general could find some Stephan book that would be worth their while even if they're not a James Brown fan and one of those sections is talking about how. How common sadly so common. That was that kind of fake artists. There was a promoter I was I went to junior high high school in Richmond. Virginia were got into radio which led to meeting James Brown but there was a a pretty local soul music scene in in the Richmond area. Major Harris came out at the air couple of the gamble. Frighteners came up to dear Watson came with the all. These guys played in local groups in Richmond. During the time I was there and to make a long story short there were a couple of local promoters that would take some of the local groups that just played local clubs in would would get us paint on the bus. Drifters or the Manhattan or whatever. Group was hot at that time. Take this group one of the club's enrichment throw them in the sin. Take him out to the boondocks somewhere in western Virginia or West Virginia or even parts of Maryland. The Carolinas and and they would perform and the drifters Manhattan's in do this like several times a year. It was mind blowing to me. But it's like the people didn't no no no no no. It was very little television. The black artists weren't getting on TV at all all it. If you were really really lucky get onto Clark. And if you're super lucky you got on it Sullivan. Maybe once but that was it for TV. And if you didn't have jet magazine you had no idea what they look like right particularly if you lived in Boondocks I mean if you lived in Richmond. That's a real city. Got Brits Monette from a newspaper out doctor to get away with daddy enrichment but you can small towns Ranville. Virginia Chesterfield Agenda. Who'd Slant County Virginia works? I mean a lot of this book is about you being a tour manager and moving with James Brown from city to city year after year for those of us who never got to see him perform on stage. I think I saw perform once on stage later in his life but what was what made him so great on the stage he just had knack of knowing what would excite annoyance. I mean obviously at a skill set. That's a no brainer. It was miraculous dancer. Who again did did things that nobody else was doing or could do. It was the Michael Jackson his era. When came to footwork he had elements of the the what tap dancers step brothers in you know people like that that he had seen as a kid so he had some of that but he also had his own imagination and skill set and the fact is he was just really that simple but he also everything. He did was geared to rousing audience to get houses. We say to get approval to get kids to jump up and scream in the same way. Michael Jackson would moonwalk in house down. James Brown moved the mashed potatoes in the house down and be sliding across the stage on a leg up in the air. And you know who else was doing? That I mean Otis. Redding couldn't dance. Great Singer made fabulous records. But you know it was a different onstage. God Love Sam. Cooke of the the hand looks so good. He didn't do anything. Jackie Wilson would get underground. Take your shirt off. Girls take the rest of his clothes off and will be the third song of his said. And that's all he had to say. Everybody had their way of doing but James Wolves like. I'm not to take cloth on Jackie. Wilson. I'M NOT AS PRETTY AS SAM. Cook so I can't just sit there and you know in pose. And he just had a headed nate sense of what would work. And I think it probably goes back to the fact that this was a guy as seventh grade dropout in heavily. Jim Crow Augusta Georgia from a broken family. His mother left him when he was what eight nine years old. His father dumped him a fun. An aunt who was who ran a brothel and that's where he was raised and he used to go out in the streets of Augusta and entertain the soldiers from Fort Gordon. Tap dancing her or what they used to call. Buck dancing whatever the hell it was he was doing so we already had it in education. On what am I gonNa do with Matt Feet? That makes these soldiers throwing extra buck in the CAN. He just had sensible what works. And you know as he became more sophisticated. Detainment hundred really work estates. He just took that attitude with him. So everything was designed toward arousing an audience and he always said if leaves the stage..

"Stubblefield Brunettes the funky Drummer John. Jabo starks Melvin Parker. He had a encyclopedia of great drummers. What's important recognized none of which played the same? I mean each one had distinctive style. If you the least bit James Brown savvy you could put a new James Brown record in ten seconds. Identify which of the drummer is. It's on that track just because they were so stylistically unique and all those guys combined into were just thinking. What do we do with this music? So it's not boring. It's not derivative and they were all of the same attitude and in James was the mastermind. He was the chemist and he was just like. We're going to do stuff that nobody else is doing. And I think it was a case I think the driving factor was he was smart enough to realize that recording artists come and go those that are associated with a styler a trend go quicker when trend is which is that. The artist is sill. If he was going to be the king of soul he was going to make himself so unique. That anybody who wanted sole had to go to James Brown and wherever soul music was going to go he was going to be the one to take it or if he fell behind he was going to be the one to catch up and move forward. He just refused to sound like anybody else or be influenced by anybody else in breeze influenced by the people behind them and one of the talk about is when Busey Collins comes into the band pray and boots. He's a kid when he brings him in but he can clearly recognize this guy's a monster when he brings him in the then the band and the sound changes again sure. Yeah no he was. The James Brown bans were very important. They weren't just backup musicians because they defined whatever stoutly was doing at any given time was really defined by the Group of musicians he had in his genius was not so much as an instrumentalist. I mean he could play organ but he was no threat to Jimmy Smith. He could play drums. He thought but all drummers made fun of behind his back but he had this genius of recognizing the strengths of all the musicians in the band and he would write in rindge music geared to their strengths and stay away from their weaknesses and the perfect illustration has that is how when the pains changed as you mentioned when Buzi Collins and his brother new bunch of young guys. These became the band. In March of nineteen seventy. There was a popular as well known amongst James Brown fans at upheaval in his famous sixties band. Macy's park repeat we L. as Jimmy Nolan. Clyde stubblefield leads guidance and they gave an ultimatum about salaries and working conditions and so on and so on he called their bluff and basically let them go and brought in St Young Group of untrained kids from Cincinnati which included Buzi Collins. Now the sixties being was known for their horn ribs. They were innovative. They were Great Horn player. So they're intonation and everything. What's like way above in did they were all guys who had jazz pedigrees and credit for you actually were not to play with people. Count Basie and so on and Sarah Vaughan and they were guys wanted to be jazz musicians in. Have the skill sets but here comes Buzi Collins where you've got a great rhythm section. Buzi and his brother. Catfish on Guitar. But you've got some burr young trained bar band level horn-players so brown senses that and he's like okay. You know for all these years. My horns were a significant part of my records. While these guys aren't gonNA cut the APP. I can't beat that old horn section. So let's focus on rhythm section so the first record he makes the new band is sex machine. Instead of a Mesa Parker's saxophone break keyboard break in the basin. The Guitar Mixed up higher in the usually were James. Records and Porn. Parts are so forgettable. You don't even miss him a just a case of something and if you listen to his records all the way back to when he first started recording with his own musicians in the late fifties when he had his first real wrote been. The wreckers were always geared to the strengths of that group of musicians and that that really was his genius in recognizing and knowing how to stay away from their weaknesses. And just make saying I rape if you love. Toray show and you miss.

All All these these people people are are productive productive in in home home right right so so the the actually actually more more productive productive at at home home so so it it if if you you can can kind kind of of get get over over that that shift shift that that paradigm paradigm and and just just just just recognize recognize that. that. It's It's kind kind of of just just like like at at the the office. office. There's There's GonNa GonNa be be a a little little water water cooler cooler talk. talk. There's There's going going to to be be a a little little break break in in the the day. day. Like Like that's that's a a healthy healthy thing thing for for for for everybody everybody to to to to stay stay connected. connected. Stay Stay engaged engaged and and and and really really to to be be able able to to live live your your your your culture culture and and your your values. values. It It was was so so fascinates fascinates me me because because I I was was talking talking to to one one of of my my longtime longtime clients clients the the other other day day and and I've I've been been probably probably helping helping him him for for fifteen fifteen years years he he said said really really for for the the first first time time people people in in his his organization organization are are really really stepping stepping up up and and in in fact fact being being remote remote now now his his company company is is actually actually working working better better than than it it did did in in the the office office and and he he was was kind kind of of person person that that said said he he didn't didn't want want anybody anybody working working remote remote and and now now it it actually actually is is more more optimal. optimal. Yeah Yeah that's that's that's that's phenomenon. phenomenon. I I hear hear every every day day from from companies companies that. that. Oh Oh my my gosh. gosh. We We didn't didn't think think this this was was at at all all possible. possible. And And the the facts facts are are that that the the work work is is getting getting done. done. People People are are stepping stepping up up as as you you say say especially especially in in these these times times so so it's it's It's It's going going to to change change the the work work place place forever. forever. I I I I really really feel. feel. That's That's the the case. case. That That working working remote remote is is here here to to stay. stay. It's It's it's it's particular particular to to a a few few industries industries that that have have been been doing doing this this for for a a long long time. time. So So you you know know tack tack in in creative creative have have been been doing doing it it for for a a long long time. time. Traditional Traditional professional professional services services banking banking finance finance and and professional professional services services have have been been a a little little bit bit later later to to to to come come on. on. But But it's it's here here to to stay stay now. now. So So what what happens happens if if you you have have a a culture culture which which is is not not a a fun fun culture culture right right now? now? I I have have a a client? client? Always Always tell tell the the story story where where when when they they used used to to get get together together as as a a company company when when they they all all worked worked in in one one place place they'd they'd have have bowling bowling night night right right and and bowling bowling night. night. Start Start at at seven seven o'clock o'clock and and bowling. bowling. I I ended ended at at ten ten o'clock o'clock would would show show up up two two minutes minutes before before seven seven and and leave leave one after after ten ten after after a a while. while. They They realize realize we're we're just just not not people people that that really really want want to to get get together together so so if if you you have have a a company company that that doesn't doesn't have have a a culture culture of of fun. fun. What What else else can can you you do do to to make? make? Sure Sure people people feel feel like like they they belong belong and and to to actually actually help help them them in in their their isolation isolation. Yeah so so one one of of the the things things that that all all the the data data again again indicates indicates and and that that it's it's it's it's been been part part of of our our model model from from the the very very beginning beginning fund fund really really should should occur occur during during working working hours. hours Right right. that's That's what what people people recognize recognize is is real real genuine. genuine. And And they they they they appreciate appreciate the the most. most. If If it's it's after after hours hours it it's feels feels a a little little more more obligatory obligatory so so if if you're you're doing doing things things after after hours hours not not to to say say you you can't can't do do those those things things but but if if it's it's always always after after hours hours it's it's not not gonna gonna be be embraced embraced for for for for the the long long term term so so we we encourage encourage these these short short brief brief consistent consistent breaks breaks during during the the course course of of work work whether whether it it be be remote remote or or at at the the office office and and it's it's almost almost like like permission permission to to play play right right that that it's it's a a you you know. know. Some Some people people have have fun fun and and play play. as As part part of of their their core core values. values. Many Many people people have have not not gone gone that that far far but but It's It's it it really really starts starts with with leadership leadership and and leadership leadership saying saying you you know know it's it's okay. okay. This This is is part part of of you you know know we we work work hard hard and and we we want want our our people people to to have have a a break break and and

See Somebody taking a break from being cooped up inside their house walking down the sidewalk and that's not just during the quarantine it's anytime I live with what you call a walking neighborhood few years ago. I'm outside mowing my lawn. See A guy ruling up a wheelchair. He's with the dog is he. Comes to my house. The dog enters my yard and immediately takes a huge dump. I got this old guy in a wheelchair on the sidewalk in front of my house. A dog taken a huge dump and I'm trying to mow the lawn. Normally in this situation you might have a guy's got a bag so sorry man. Let me get that. This dude can't do it so it's a little bit awkward. What am I gonNA do get mad about it? No I laughed about. Hey Man stalks fertilizing my yard. I try to be nice. Trying to be neighborly so we talked for a while the small talk. He says he lives a street over and he introduces himself. He says my name is James Brown and you know what I said. Said like the singer and he was like hey say yeah like the singer actually believe it or not. I used to work with him. It turns out this guy's an old school urban radio. Dj It's an am station in Nashville an AM radio. If you don't know it used to be big. Am radio was big bounce off the stratosphere it will go everywhere you can pick it up so much farther than you couldn't FM signal. In fact they didn't even have. Fm Am was big as it was. This am station. It's still around today. It is maybe best known as the radio station. Where Oprah Winfrey got her start. People don't know this about Oprah very some people do I might have mentioned it. Oprah's from Nashville. She went to high school here. Another Weird Oprah connection. My father was her speech teacher in that high school. East high school so anyway. Am radio back in the day. When James was there it was big. It was big when he said he worked with the James Brown. It was because this was the big urban radio station. They call it black radio at the time in Nashville and they would bring these artists into Nashville. They would do promotions for them. They would pack venues and it wasn't just James Brown. He worked with the Eisley brothers every time I would see him. He had headphones on. I used to work with them. He had all sorts of great stories. But if you were looking at him now you would never know that you would see this old guy in a wheelchair with a little bitty dog over the next few years. Because I've got a dog because James was one st over I would see him all the time all the time it always be hanging out wearing headphones listening to music little dog always at aside and because. I'm walking my dog. That little dog will come. Greet s would stop we chat. We both loved music. We both loved dogs and every time he would chat he would have a story. It wasn't always about radio. But being radio myself. I'll get him. Show me how he would do. Intros an out does that old school urban dj way just to see how he would do it. And I would often tell him I would say man. I've got to get my recorder over here and get this on tape. And he always say something now. No that's I don't do that anymore. That's who I used to be. That was years ago last year. I was out in my car drove by his house. And I see a u haul and I was like man James Moven. He got sick of all this development. That was another thing that we talk about about how the neighborhood had changed. She'd been here fifty sixty years more or less grown up in this neighborhood and my father take it back to connection with. My father also grew up in this neighborhood. Just a street over from James was so I've got a connection to this neighborhood to talk about that and James Van. I guess he just got sick of this development because they're always threaten into tears house down. You know that story. Gentrification is what we call it anyway parked. My car immediately went to James's House and they're all these people in their moving stuff out. But no James and there's this dude on the couch and I asked him so what's up and he said James is dead and I was like it was disappointing because he was a friend of mine. This guy's retired as seem all the time I'm working from home. I'm walking my dog. He's out rolling around with his dog. We teach each other all the time and I was like. Oh that's not going to be the same. He's my connection to the neighborhood. You know but also thought about this story that he had and about how I missed that opportunity that history that radio history and those intros and those out rose and the way things used to be in the things that I could learn from him and I've talked about things like this before you now have missed air checks from Great Radio Legend. Here in Nashville. Because I was too scared to do it and with this it was just one of those things that I never got around to that guy that I talked to who sit on his couch. That was his son and we talked about me trying to get some James Air checks recordings. I'm still working on that. A check in with the station the owner of the station. They don't have anything. This was way back before everything was recorded but there are a lot of old air checks out there and James was really popular as a DJ at one time. He didn't go by the name. James Brown for obvious reasons. He went by the name. J Albert Brown. It was weird because he was living among people. That didn't know who was because of that. But sometimes I mentioned it to these older guys in the neighborhood and said you know James Brown a radio. Dj and they'd be the WHO J. Albert Brown. The Oh man. Jail rebrand live here. They didn't even know but they knew him. So sure. There are some recordings out there somewhere. I'm looking for them. There are a lot of people collect air checks. They're out there. I'm still GONNA look but I want you to think about this. This is why bring it up. We take for granted that there is so much on tape these days but there's also a ton of stuff that is it. It's not online. It's not written down on paper. Sometimes the people that might have been on tape there known in different ways than they are now and we don't even know they're around us. We don't know how to look them up. We don't know where to look them up. Maybe the only place they did exist is in the minds of people right now because of covert nineteen one of the things that people are thinking. A lot about is deaf and the importance of relationships. And if you've got the time you definitely have the skills you could be somebody who gets a lot of this important stuff. These stories this history. The intros in Altos of an old radio. Dj that we could all learn from. You could get that stuff on tape. Maybe it's from your family. Maybe it's from your friends. Maybe it is something that you could turn into a business. Think about that. We are on the edge of a lot of people. Dying people. Dial the time. James didn't die from Cova Nineteen. He died because he was old. He didn't take care of himself and one day. You're here and you've got these stories and you can share them with people and you can make friendships and the next day that's gone. It is gone. You can be the one to archive some of this with your skills with the equipment that you already have. You may be familiar with story core. This is an NPR show. They have a great APP. The story core APP that will guide you through a story core style interview. That's where people interview their family interview. Their friends interview people that they know and they get great interview. So if you're a little iffy on interviewing that's not the kind of podcast that you do. Sto Or Y. C. O. R. P. S. That's how you spell it. You can look up that APP. They will guide you through an interview. And maybe you just open up that Mike and let somebody talk. It doesn't have to be perfect to be meaningful. No real marketing device on this one but an opportunity for you. If you are looking to make money with your podcasting skills and definitely an opportunity for you to help humanity out so we don't lose some of the stuff

"james brown" Discussed on Huddle Up with Gus
"Found that you build upon that will set the stage for success or the lack thereof later in life because everybody including adults are still focus with the mobile devices that we have even when people go out to dinner to fellowship. You look around a restaurant in look at how many adults are so engrossed with cell phones and tablets right there and we don't have the same quality quality of Socialization and interaction. As we did back in the day I think also the self officiating negotiate you to compromise. Is You learned all that in early age. 'cause there wasn't an up there to do it for you to figure out what the strike zone was. How ghost runners worked? Well Yeah and you had to figure out who the leaders were. The leaders were the ones who picked the teams And then like the young kids had to keep up the older kids to play within the rules and and the rules were all set with you know within the group every game was a different game. If you only had three people playing baseball on the corner you know you couldn't cover every part of the field so you've got homerun Derby there's always new rules those and those things. I missed so much there is no question about it when I think about my mother and father. God bless them. They I look to say that they were high school graduates but they have PhD's in determination they want us the five of us. I'm the oldest of five I four boys and one girl They wanted us to have a better quality of life than what they had grown up but I have immense respect and admiration for what they did. I mean five of us. My father was a security guard of prison working working at a local. Oh prison and gus would remember that from his days in Washington a Lurton Krizan Argentine DC. He also drove a taxi cab but during the holidays he also took on a third job as a handyman helper. If you will go out at the Reagan National Airport worked in Asia's rental car and doing whatever needed to be done all so my mother could stay home because she always wanted to be an excellent homemaker and she was so we called her. The Sergeant Bob was only five five forty. Carry a big stick and we affectionately called her. The the sergeant we need to not mess around with hopper. You said something. It was Gospel but that was the environment that we grew up in with all kinds of respect. Hey Dave there are people in our neighborhood and we you. We've just consider our neighborhood was a universe That four or five six seven block area but all of the adults apparent in the neighborhood. We knew them by Mr Mrs. We knew there by MR and Mrs Smith we never called them by their first name. It was just a matter respect the way we were raised. And whenever we you said Mrs Smith on Farragut everybody knew who we were talking about so that sense of community and even when we hear the expression that it takes a village to raise a a child if you will that will certainly ed because we had such respect if we were to three blocks away plane. An adult told us something that we were doing wrong or to. You know to straighten up enact right. We did because there wasn't that level of respect for authority right so then going on to high school you go into ninth grade. It's a big transition in for everyone and I don't know it doesn't matter if you're the star athlete or or or just a person who's not even playing sports but it's a big transition so tell me a little bit about that transition. Few you in how growing up in your neighborhood really helped with that. Well I like to think again. Maybe Co telling on that point that I was making about respect for authority I went to a public elementary school and then graduated from there and went to a middle school called junior high school. Then In the seventh and eighth grade but I was I have an interest in basketball. Could not play a lick but the coach. They kept me on the team simply because he said that was a good listener. Coach Don Fugel and gusting they. They had a lot of talent. Kings through that particular Middle School Adrian. Dantley who went onto I believe a fourteen year career in the NBA and a hall of Famer Kermit Washington. Who played played with the Los Angeles Lakers in professional basketball at such A? We had a lot of great talent coming through of their then but when Morgan Rootin- to the high school coach saw me playing. Cyo Baseball In the play offs and he saw me and I had a great postseason hitting home runs. He interested me and coming. Let me to demand the plate. Which of course was the Mecca during my time? L. Is an athletic and academic success in rigor if you will and when I went to Matha so it was a novel experience. Hey fellas five hundred dollars. A year was the tuition and we thought that was all all the money in the world. That my folks sacrificed to put me through school. Ed Demands of and of course change in classes That was a whole new experience appearance. One had to be responsible for their time of but again the respect for authority was was was ingrained in us so that art. That transition was easy easy in terms of dealing with the various teachers. But here's one big lesson that came out of high school and it showed how serious my mom and dad were about the the kids doing well academically because they felt that foundation stone would be the proper foundation for success in a game of life. I was blessed to make the basketball team as it might create our play. JV and I wrote a bench on the Varsity team. And this isn't the math. I mean one of the nation's our house and one day something happened to practice ran late. You guys heard me reference being home when the street right lights came right now. I was back home by the time the street lights came on my mother. Got On the phone and call apple and assistant. Coach picked up the phone and And she said this is a Mrs Brown. My son James Brown there and the assistant coach said yes. Ma'am he's floor with coach Wootton in basketball practice. She said well M- asked me to coach and he said well I can't disturb him right now. He's in practice. My mother said okay. Well here's the deal if my son is at home within the next Next hour that that will be his last basketball practice. Because academic success is first and foremost and boy he told coast coach called practice off in ten minutes. It's unusual that lay called. My mother said Mrs Brown. You're absolutely correct. And we know what is first and foremost here. This won't happen again. The coach Wilton was awesome because the priorities that he had all of us who play for him and he was also a history teacher. Superb teacher superb teacher which is why he enjoyed so much success athletically and Gussie also back in time coach the football team until they hired another coach but he told oldest priorities that we had to have which were consistent with those in my family was that God had a first family had to be second school was third and then your sport football or basketball coach and I remember many years later. Get an opportunity to go an interview coach for for sixty minutes sports when we had that here. CBS Why were those priorities. So important because to a player today today over forty some odd years and he coach. We all have those priorities in grave and he said I felt that if I had young men who I believe in and adapted those priorities as their own. I was working with championship caliber people and we would enjoy more success than failure. Your isn't that amazing. No that is really amazing. Because I think there's a lot of guys in professional sports today that are missing a lot of that uh-huh and I hear you loud and clear. I like to do or as many years as I have been blessed to do this playing and calling a game the football day where gus has suffered got were football than our ever no but I worked hard to just be a good broadcaster broadcaster and understand the basics. I went to work with one of his bosses at Washington and then Bobby Mitchell the hall of famers who was basically walk me through all the fun dimensions of football and so that I could call this work because my boss here at CBS. When they brought me on board I it came on as an extra announcer during the basketball season during college hoops and then idea professional whoops because that's how broke into it in Washington? DC as as an announcer for first bt doing black college basketball and then with With a CBS as extra announcer But I was doing. The Washington did name Bullets Games. So I did all of that. So it's become well rounded in the sport but that's what again I had to lay that foundation so I got to know a lot of these professionals at gus is talking about and I'm telling you many of these guys come from good family homes but the challenge is when you get around the number of successful athletes start making money and you start being a low into a sense of complacency by all the attention that you're getting one. One may stray from foundational principles taught in their home and the school or Internet search and by neighborhood adults. And that's when you start to the head down the wrong road and those things can really wreak havoc and indeed a take you also in the wrong rails off the rails for every day so I tend the focus in all that I've been doing on characters of integrity and character. Light Gusts Right. Those are the stories that I looked at more to publicizing visiting give visibility to because even though my friend Charles Barkley I understood what the end of the hall of Famer was saying. That athletes should not karol bottles. That might be true. Parents should be an other strong character and integrity and the community but the fact of the matter is de facto. Anybody who is highly visible in the world of scores is a role model whether they want to be or not. Which is why I think thank you understand that and model carry yourself properly? Then you're impact in a whole generation in a positive way. I agree I totally agree. James skipping back to when did you know you're going to be possibly a college basketball player. I mean you're playing with a lot. The guys that probably went on to play college and someone that went on. Play the pros did you. You're on JV freshman. When did you crack the starting lineup while It was a result. I'm sure and gus as an ex pro can relate to this. It was having the attitude day that you should always be in the the process of learning to never ever get complacent Morgan. wootten use this fundamental an athletic fundamental that had to be mastered as an analogy. He said when you're going up for a junk shot.
"james brown" Discussed on Huddle Up with Gus
"Hey thanks for joining us. Another episode of huddle up with Gus. I'm here with my good friend. Dave and Dave today I am so excited did to bring in somebody that I've known for a while and have followed and is just been involved in the NFL. For as long as I can remember. We have some old mutual friends from way back in the day and he's just an outstanding person and outstanding human being and if you want to model yourself after anybody it should you should model yourself after James Brown That's a tall order. But I agree with you. Well he is talking about the bus especially if we show some of yeah right right. Yeah some all types so joining us today on how to up with Gus James Brown. Thank you for being with us. And it's a pleasure. Well I can. It definitely share with you on day. If I am too dark the blush with that intro but I thank you guys so much and quite frankly as I was sharing with Dave before we went on air a gust. It will be right back at you because when you play one of the things that I actually talked about name Association it's it's character it's integrity it's consistency and you've been that way all along. As a matter of fact I think actually one of our friends when you were playing in Washington A. J. Northbound Who recently passed away but a big time executive who went on to become a serial entrepreneur? And he doesn't let many people into his inner circle. But you were one of those guys so thank you guys. Were having me on board. Now we appreciate join and and it's sad that he did pass but he was one of our mutual friends in getting know him and his wife and it was a pretty interesting story back there when I was living in Northern Virginia it could very close to him. And you know a lot of good stories coming back and forth between us about J. B. that's for sure and I know. He had a from understand he had had a Lotta influence in your life as well. Hey Gust end to be really clear about it. The Path was cleared for me to move into what I didn't realize was a passion to move into broadcasting because of Jay Maas bound. He was a senior executive with Xerox Corporation. which where I landed after not getting an opportunity you know I did have the opportunity? I didn't capitalize fully on my opportunity at the professional level. That will like you did mindless basketball. So when I got cut by the Atlanta Hawks and came back home Jay Nussbaum who was quite a football player himself way back the day at University of Maryland and he went after a number of athletes because he felt they would make good marketing people who knew how pick themselves up off the the basketball floor on football turf and battle forward and not let a disappointment keep them down and he was quite successful with that and I was humbled and certainly very thankful to be a part of his team where he knew that I had an interest in broadcasting. He lay prepare for me until I could do it as long as I brought. My numbers scandal Gandak a sales executive or sales manager so it was always about making certain I met the mark and he gave me the opportunity that led to how long I've been in the business. Now it's always about sales right dumping no matter what profession you're n you're absolutely correct. It is all about sales. Because you're selling yourself up a service or product or what have you. It really is fundamentally about sales. You know we're trying to dave in are trying to figure that about podcasting very part of your day. I appreciate you guys bearing Whitby as I was trying to figure out how to even get on late on millennials. It'll be out. Yeah so so. Let's go back to when you were growing up in D. C. What was that first time that you remember? Where are you fell in love with sport while my First Love was actually baseball? Gus in Dave My Parents Eric. God bless them. Were very much in love with baseball. My father And my uncle were very huge fans of the homestead grays. Raise Up Negro baseball team. That played in Washington Auto Griffith Stadium before you were born. Guzman dumb So I played. Cyo Baseball and was doing well. As a matter of fact we got to the playoffs. We were applying in high school basketball coach. Who obviously has in the basketball hall of fame? Morgan wooten of Damalf Catholic Highschool Fair and he came out to watch one of our postseason games but he was more interested in this off of multiple sports star. A blonde hair at your on are being by the name of Steve. Garrett and Steve Garrett is the reason that I no longer numberplate baseball because fellows standing in Bosco on a practice one day and he had a wicked array of pitches and he threw. What I knew was curveball? And of course it takes only mantles second to get to the plate. But here's what happened. I'm standing in the batter's box and I'm saying there's a Kerber okay. You know what is late breaking but I know it will break kirpu breaking. Oh my God is on the way and I dropped down to the dirt and last nanosecond if broke across the plate or strike and I knew baseball was the end of the at that point time and it was basketball after that was was so as baseball with the first team sport or you played Yes sir. That was the first team sport. Unlike would probably elementary school. Kids would say that kickball was probably the first team scored but but yet did they buy. It was baseball. There was a first team sport and we had some very civic minded actively engaged parents in the neighborhood who taught auto the right way to be teammates of what a good teammate was all about taught us fundamentals of the sport and it really carried over. As I'm sure you both know having Blake sports it carried over into the game of white recognizing that in the game of life is all about being a team player really is someone successful on his or her own and clearly in the work environment. It's all about being on a team as well and and recognizing that our job is to encourage our teammates If you will reciting the mantra of bubble bell check the New England Patriots Fan to do your a job but to pick up the slack where you see you can't and to keep each other encourage so those are some of the things that the world is sports teams or it's especially changes you. Well one of the things that Dave and I have found with all of our guests that we've interviewed you know over probably thirty now Everybody talks about when they were growing up their neighborhoods. How they used to go outside and play they would play? As Dave's favorite sport was wiffle ball and our whatever it was kicked ball like you mentioned and you get all the neighborhood kids and today. It's so different. We don't see that anymore. I mean I I love I mean you got up dance get out of the house come back at dinner then. Don't come back until the whistle blows. That was my that was my childhood. Go play any game you want. There were no parents telling you what to do. You had to figure it out you had to make all the rules up and I think a lot of that is missed today in society. How do you feel about that Jane? Hey Gus you know even as you were counting that There was a real longing feeling in our heart. For those times again you're absolutely correct gusts are parents would let us go. Probably about two to three blocks away from the house. We didn't have any adult chaperones a huge the yield a two three blocks away from our home and we will get out there and we play all kinds of games whether it was hide and seek whether it was K.. All baseball whistled or whatever you name it. And we had a great time. And you talked about off the parents indicating when to come back. The Cue for us is when we saw the streetlights come on. We knew back home to get in the house. How much do we long for those times when clearly in today's environment sadly cannot do that because of the way things turned so south in terms of you know kidnapings alike and certainly? I don't WanNa make this very Marlin But we all understand that we long for those times now. There are many people who might live in rural areas or semi rural areas. Might still be able to enjoy this. But I long-forgotten I missed that. And that certainly defy the neighborhood and friendships. That one still has till today a bonded. It solidified by that kind of experience. Yes Sir will you know. Gosh you know my neighborhood. There's about fifteen kids all within eight years injury injury and I don't even know if they've ever met like my my my kids play sports teams but none none of the kids intermingle like we used to intermingle will run around and and I spoke to a lady the other day James and she was telling me that her kids sometimes they go out. Sometimes they don't but they have a neighbor. He took his backyard hard and he made it into a sports Mecca. He said he put a basketball court and he put he put like nets up whatever we want and he has four boys and he makes his sons. Go Out and get the neighborhood. Kids come over to their house and place at all. I wanted to do them to go outside. And that's one of the only people I've ever heard be able to do that. You know what how awesome is that when we extrapolate from that experience to get prepared for the game of life what that teaches teaches you in the kind of experience as you said you figure it out on your own you have to realize that one cat B sawfish and hall ball or the Action Action that it truly engages you a team framework in working with the kids want. You're getting the exercise in because of that age. You WanNA certainly be able to burn on offense energy. Many schools in many major metropolitan areas don't have extracurricular activities that are physically injured. Or even phys ed which of course was a staple part of the school experience of elementary on up so kudos to that neighbor for doing that. And I'm telling you those friendships unshipped. Those early experiences are foundational stones upon which you build that will serve you well in the game of life. I mean again to that. A book What's it called everything needed to learn? I learned in kindergarten. The first story going.

The best smart speakers of 2019
"In in the old days I would only recommend sonos because the trick with multi this call multi room music the the only the hardest thing with multi room music is playing the same music throughout the house so honestly I don't want if you don't care about that then this is easy and actually echo now I think does it pretty well sonas had a proprietary network formula that handled the biggest problem with multi room music which is that they would be slightly out of sync and that's the worst possible scenario you're playing one song and it sounds like it's echoing throughout the house sonos is magical in that regard it in party mode you can play the same music throughout the house and it just sounds like the whole house is full of music without any weirdness or latency right away this is something though that these newer devices have added and it's it it's a great capability you may not want to do it now but some day you might have a holiday party and want to have you know James Brown going throughout the house and then that case that's a nice thing to have but yeah you what you want to do absolutely fine with echo okay you get a dot in each room attach a new speaker or you can get one of the there are echoes they have pretty good speakers I don't you know for instance the echo show in my kitchen is fine I don't need a better speaker than that so what about the echo dot dots don't have great speakers they're better than they used to be but they're small speaker size is directly correlated with speaker quality and so the the the bigger echo the the the cylinder now had they've gotten better sound better speakers in the used to the dot is the worst better than it used to be but still the worst sound fine for spoken word it's like in a ham radio so not bearable not not like the little transistor used as a teenager like a a a bigger amaretto but in that small speakers talking to have a lot of bass is gonna be a little teeny but you're right if you look those up to an external speaker there's there's gonna sound great okay so what I put like and an echo showed in say the kitchen and then I love the echo show in a kitchen because it's got a screen you can attach it for instance your doorbell and see who's at the front door it's just nice to have that screen and the speaker in the show is very good so Linda I put wireless speakers in the other rooms are dot Sir if you want different music in each room you can use one echo you can say echo play you know jingle bells in the living room and it will it's smart enough to do that but those speakers in the living room will have to be connected somehow to an echo they have yes absolutely that's all on your wifi network so yeah did they have echoes that are specifically designed for smart speakers is brand new with their less expensive actually one thing they have is the echo flex which is twenty Bucks it plugs into the wall and it's a mini speaker that's the smallest speaker they make the the really bright branched out the dot is a great choice the echo studio is very good sound that's two hundred Bucks though now you're starting to get more expensive so that you should look at the variety of echo devices and you can really slowly it increase your I wouldn't recommend buying it all once you know slowly increasing as you understand it make sure you like it you like the choices it offers and so forth but I absolute you know I spent thousands of dollars because sonus is very expensive to put some notes in every room in honestly now but it could be easily done it for a lot less using occurs so conceptually it would be a show or be you know a dot in the kitchen and then dot server again shows and each of the room or wireless speakers I I'm still unclear on that because if I was in the kitchen playing her music or doing a cooking timer and I'm in the office doing whatever I won't be able to play different songs Astor yes so you tell when you do this you tell the echo where you want to play each location though is is is defined as location by the presence of an echo device so so you what you would have for instance you have an echo show in the kitchen the you talk to its kitchen timers you can watch you know Jimmy Fallon's monologue behind it or whatever cartoon it's nice to I will I really like the echo show then in the living room where you have a nice stereo set up you'd get the echo in put that right now is on sale for ten Bucks the input has no speaker at all it connects to your stereo but it becomes now an echo that's listening to your speech in the living room but also can be communicating with the echo show in the kitchen so you could say in the kitchen Hey some you know nice dinner music in the living room and it will play in the living room a lot younger you command it remotely in other words okay so I would say look at echo inputs anywhere you already have a good speaker system or you want to put a better speakers if you want to just get an echo that has a good speaker they also sell those at two hundred Bucks they sell a a you know fancy echo that has its it's called the echo studio that has high fidelity the echo dots are fine for just voice or you know the kids they even have a kids edition I honestly I think the input is good if you already have speakers and then there's also this kind of weird thing this is the echo flex which is a plug the plug into the plug one in and then it adds a voice capability so if you wired up speakers in the living room you have the echo flex in the bathroom you could say I'd like my theme music to play when I come out and it'll play in the living room any security issues to you all yeah in fact I haven't talked about this but this week there was a news story about the Amazon sells a cameras all as well called the ring camera there's a news story about a podcast that was looking in on people's ring cameras the if you're if you're have one of these devices it's on the internet so what you want now the good news is you can secure these you're buying it for Amazon Amazon keeps the you know if their security flaws updated over the air stuff like that but you definitely want to set strong passwords you what you want it all of these devices become gateways into your network and if you have cameras on them as the echo showed as you absolutely one make sure you have strong passwords the reason that this podcast was able to crack these ring cameras as they use the default they had changed the password the use the default or an easy to guess password so ring and nest and most of the better companies the nest is a Google product will allow you also use two factor authentication strongly recommend that and it only by these devices from companies that are reputable you know the name and they're gonna keep it up to date if there's a security flaw they'll push down effects and that's absolutely the case with Amazon and Google okay and the last question do you keep them on your wireless network will be trying to segment that I ordered it's a cut it's a very complicated thing do you do if you have if you happen to have two networks in your house you could do that otherwise

Muhammad Ali vs George Foreman: The Rumble in the Jungle
"Here's Monte coming across the Robe Muhammad Ali war while he trained for his famous rumble in the jungle against George Foreman. The Robe is a reminder of the political and cultural context of the Times made this one of the most important sporting and entertainment events of the Twentieth Century Tree back in Smithsonian storage would looks like an unassuming. Terry cloth training rogue with simple black lettering says Muhammad Alley and above is his signature so little frayed at the edges here a little yellow represents an icon and a legend who was the greatest that sports has ever produced here comes early. You can see in their very calm. It's age against you. They've got these two American African American boxers George Foreman Muhammad Ali is he lost his title Losses Bertel. Yes he was trying to jump to the current heavyweight boxing champion. The odds were stacked against L. E. Right out of gate because he was older form and had was undefeated formidable opponent Yasser when I'm meet this man if you think the world was surprised when when Nixon resigned wait allow with forms and in terms of the actual the fight in Zaire how did that come about it was with Don King I think they had connections with the people in Zaire and thought this would be like this great news sort of mass spectacle that would elevate interest just in not only the fight but also the nation of Zaire and also like a you know they had this big concert and James Brown in addition tend to be a major sporting event. The rumble in the jungle was also a major musical event James Brown. was there be king was there. The spinners were there this global spectacle well that was none other than legendary boxing promoter. Don King Jitney Super John's they come into one fold and do one thing six thousand miles from home that was blackness that was distributed to accept blackness to help platelets trust practice and into associated separate blackness. We all citizens of the world. It ain't about us being we WANNA be against. Nobody cares about us saying that we for each other so that there was this celebration aberration connecting African culture with African American poultry that both celebrated and exploited in some ways in order to get people excited about the fight by the time that was kind of a new concept but in terms of rumble in the jungle considered one of the most important sporting events at twentieth century. Why do you think that was no long run. There's a lot of big events but they don't always hold up so you have this huge audience championship fight that was like incredible years the Ali Lee story itself and I'll ease rope widow finish to that fight where you got let himself get punched basically and tricked form in and new yet one shot right and was able to accomplish it and that was huge. Ali's rope a dope finish was the key to his victory. He let himself get backed up against the ropes then used his arms to block as many a forms punches as he could once foreman was worn out. Ali made his move. We'll get into rope-a-dope put up a few minutes but just no it was all about outsmarting his younger opponent. Mohammed Ali dancing around the national anthem. I mean I know that like for myself growing up in a Muslim family and my parents grabbing India in the sixties and you know all the fact that he was this outspoken black Muslim. I think there are a lot of Muslims around on wall who sort of took ownership of him in some ways you know like he's one of us and I just remember as a kid the idea of sort of giving giving the middle finger to colonialism and the oppression by not going fighting in Vietnam. Why should I go and fight the White Man's man's war. What have they done for me as a black American so I think there was a real resonance about this fight being in Africa of all places right. I I think if it had been in America I don't think it would have had the same impact sure right yeah. The international scope of it was important and you know he won three lost at one three times james the belt so like that kind of like just adds to this kind of legacy stature that he had also so smart and funny he we know how to use his controversy to kind of help his bank account as well as the bugles fighting so. I think all around just like really is remarkable the term that he's worth remarking upon because he so

"James Brown appreciation month here on hold the funk. We just heard maybe my favorite song ever by the godfather. That was talking loud and saying nothing like a dull knife, the just ain't cut. You're talking loud and say nothing man come on. He's a poet. Yeah. And that was actually the original from from what I've. Read. That's supposedly the original version. That was far more rock and roll or ent than the version that was finally released. We're hearing this cut off of the James Brown's funky people part three which was the third at us. In a series of releases highlighting James Brown's. Label that he put put together people, Lynn Collins and. And Fred Wesley, and the j bees they all recorded on it. But yeah, that was supposedly the original mix of it. And I guess. For whatever reason, I don't know the exact story. But for whatever reason, they really toned down the rock elements and accentuated, the the soul funk Rb elements and. Anyways. Whatever mix it is. I'm in because I love that tune before that before talking loud, we heard you got to have a mother for me, which is again, one of my favorite tunes, and the band is just working at man like the drum interplay. I don't know if you remember back that far, but man, the drivers are killing it last good guitar work to probably should've checked into who was playing all that stuff. But you know, sometimes you do and sometimes you don't. But let's see I'm looking now. Trying to figure out it's just got a Nate Jones on drums. This was from January thirteenth nineteen sixty nine. What it was recorded? And actually we're going to we're going to wrap the show up with track. From the same date is a matter of fact, so. Yeah. Sometimes it's hard to tell especially with James Brown's projects. Sometimes you know, he would. Play a show. And then instead of the guys getting the night off after the show. He's like take to the studio. You know what I'm saying? Like, he was a well-known taskmaster. And for that reason, I'll appetizers, you know, guys would come and go and come back, and you know, whatever, but. Also because he recorded so frequently in so many different studios. It can be a little hard to piece together who played on what all the time. So it's possible. Maybe other than Nate Jones. There was somebody else playing the drum kit there in any case that was you got to have a mother for me. What a great before that we heard I've got money part one. James is saying, hey, I got money girl. But ain't got no love pretty sad before that we heard problems, which is a nice seventies funk track. And before that we heard it's a man's man's man's world. But it wouldn't be nothing y'all. Okay. So we're gonna get back into we're quickly running nap time here. I wanna play you at least this track. And then I'll be right back. This is the night train, y'all. All right, y'all..

"By the family's account. But neighbors in the neighborhood on the college campus, where he was a scholar athlete across the campus. Everyone had the same things to say about him, a young man of character and integrity. And a family of faith. So it's very heart wrenching story that I think viewers will feel that palpably when they see the the show tomorrow night and on the other hand, you have the lawyer for the police officer who says simply this man had a right to defend himself. He felt threatened and he took action and he's he's within his purview. Both attorneys representing the family and the police officer have excellent reputations. And clearly, Mr Brian suckle off the attorney for officer. Aaron Hess made a very compelling case strictly from the legal perspective in terms of the decision that his client had to make an a split second. You'll see in the piece, however, one of the bigger questions that really wasn't answered as well was did officer has have another decision that he could have made which was to get out of the path of an oncoming car that officer has says was one that was trash. At a high rate of speed. You know, why put yourself in that position as opposed to removing yourself from it? But his lawyer argues that very strongly indicating that he had no choice given a split-second decision that he had to make end that he was hit by the car officer has which propelled him on top of the hood defending DJ, a forty eight hours special with special correspondent James Brown.
