Original play the Virginia 20 actors 20, while actors gently adapted updated by me, along with the producer and actor George George Menace Co.

Born on Nashville based Layla Frankel. Her knew her new EP postcard from the Moon features five great sons. We were just listening to one of them there, and a bonus track is available. Azad fans only download and limit edition CD at Layla frankel dot Tom. Um, I'm really stumped by a cover. But Layla Frankel, your version of the cares. Just like heaven was so masterful, massively re imagined I had to listen to it twice. Yeah, for I could I could Could connect it to the cure I had. I have to say that's the first time I actually listened to the lyrics of that song. Yes. You know what I mean? That's what he was saying that that's beautiful. Yeah, it was great. Thank you. We sold it. Yeah. Welcome. Welcome s O. So talk about it. Talk about what? Inspired that particular cover on And why? Why you chose a cover? Uh, for Ah, I believe that was on team, the Fox Yeah, That's right. So my first EP was releasing 2017. And that was a cover off of that record. Yeah, well, I'll start by saying I grew up in a musical household. My father is a musician, Chicago based songwriter Joel Frankel. And so we grew up sort of always talking about music around the kitchen table, and all you know, sort of our life is music. Um And he sort of raised me with this mindset of listen to a song but reimagine it And so I think we often in my household at least will sort of be jamming living room and Playing songs, different ways. And so that was one that he had mentioned to me. You know these lyrics. They're so beautiful, but you often don't think about what he's saying, because it's where by the pop rock production On DSA. Oh, I was sort of reinventing it as ah 68 just to see what it felt like an end up feeling really cool so well, that that's cool. Your dad actually said that That looks so be it because that's what I got from it immediately. I was like, Wow, I never knew how beautiful that song was there, and it's heartbreaking. And you always don't you would miss that time 100%. I never listened to it, except for the first opening an opening line. Those only where recognized it? Yeah s o. I want to go before we get to the music on a postcard from the moon to disregard. Um That I believe is the only video I have ever seen shot in Evanston's Clark Square Park. I'll take on what looked like a like a very chilly afternoon. Yeah, You know, I think, um it's hard to come by a warm day in Chicago has the time. Uh, e had a 50 50 chance, but it would be one Um, yeah, that was one that shot with my friend Teddy Golden, and we were just looking for kind of a space that would provide the right Setting for the feel of that song, Blustery day. In Chicago. Isolate a line in the distance was was absolutely, honey. The reason I called that out or or or highlighted that song was, um The lyrics are are are are are rendered with such poetic economy. Um and and such symbolism. That's that's Arlo and what'll Go Woody Guthrie stuff. Thank you. I appreciate that confident. I actually studied creative writing and poetry in college, So I think that's kind of that was the head space I was in when I was writing those lyrics. So that's working for you. And I'm guessing you got a name. Yeah. I don't know sometime, right? So, so how's how's Nashville or your national now, right? I mean, national now? Yeah. How does how does that environment differ? Because you don't fit into a box as as a singer songwriter? How does that environment differ? From from being in Chicago. Are you? Are you finding it easier, too? Right there? What? What is what's the benefit one of the kinds Well, save it. National during comb. It is kind of its own different conversation, but pre Cove ID. One of the things I loved about Nashville was just the Um, just immense amount of music everywhere all the time and and also You know the songwriter community? I think I was sort of looking for the opportunity to be surrounded by other songwriters. And, you know, creativity, sort of breeds creativity if you're around creative energy. It will feed your own creative energy s. Oh, that's what I was seeking. And I've definitely found back to be true. I think the number of songs I was writing per year as a songwriter, doubled easily after moving to Nashville in just being surrounded by other people who were hustling and writing and trying to make this artistic life happen so I think that was what I was sort of attracted to, and then you know, it gets a reputation of being a country town, but it's It's definitely not S O. So I'm narrow it. Zoe. There's a wide range of maybe maybe roots is it is a better term. I would say so. Because the blue Americana Yeah. What is being a national done for your single grams by Layla? Oh, well, so the singer Graham's eyes kind of something that's An entirely online, so I don't know if Nashville as sort of impacted that so much as my reach, But I think you know, I think being surrounded by other musicians who are doing the freelance artist life sort of inspired you to come up with creative. Ideas for how to make a living at this, So that's where that came from. All right. Let's talk about postcard from the moon. What was What? What was what was the inspiration behind behind this particular eep? Why the CPI right now? By the piece, so let's keep the Sort of.

But that one day I went out with my tripod. On my iPhone. That's from my ice on by the way, which is interesting. Set up the tripod, and I just started running down the tracks and then running back at the camera from the camera, and I started seeing a really beautiful Kind of shape take place in this video. And after looking at it. Um, it was kind of a draft day. So I decided to to go into that even further and making a black and white just tiny little. I call it a microbe felt But for me, it really expresses sort of the frustration about where to go with all of this. Is there anywhere to go on this track? I had just lost my father. He died on April six. It's coming up, right? Yeah, coming up here. Really kind of mourning that feeling those kind of feelings and I decided to just rather than wallow in it.

That's funny that in a vault no one has the combination. No no what what to two other quick things. I Bet Your Dad before we move on James that won the touch me too. It'd be obvious you said I'm not a martinet but you said that you learned that much psychology that by the way your description of working with actors actors it's fascinating but you said one of the things that you got from your dad was was treating people with kindness yes more than picked up yeah. He was <hes> aw you know. When I was a young boy I didn't I didn't see it but then when I stage manage for him <hes> on a <music> <hes> first one was breakfast at Tiffany's and then on the road company of Cactus Lower and then on forty cards I could see how he worked with the actors and and my dad was a playwright and a director sure so he would rewrite a lot on his feet but he would always treat everybody with kindness he would. Did you know take all kinds of suggestions. He even took one from me that ended up in forty carats and <hes> he was he was he was not. You have to be over here. You have to be over here. It was like you know I learned that from him. You know <hes> walk in the door. That's what I say starting a scene. You start over here. You start over there and let's see what happens so <hes> you know that's it was all it was never now. Don't don't do it that way. It was never I never got angry. <hes> <hes>. I never <hes> said <hes>. There's only one way to do it and it's my way because actors if you if you catch the right actors <hes> you cast them because they're good and they're creative so they can only make the peace better and they can only make the peace better by having the freedom to experiment and we do that a lot. I thought it was interesting to in Gilbert appreciate ashamed this that that your your dad gave he mentored some some young people like Dick Morris like you're dead.

Why did you do it and he said because there were fifty jokes I could never thought of wow so <hes> there was <hes> there was a connection connection there with woody and my dad and the last thing that you wanted to do was go into show that's fascinating as you said you wanted. No part of that I did I I went to I went to I went to music and art high school. Believe it or not I went to <hes>. It's now laguardia. It's combined with performing arts. When I was twelve years old I was in sixth grade and and <hes> <hes> people from the Metropolitan Opera Boys Metropol monop- Burke came around and they wanted to know who could sing my country Tis of the and I I could I sang it and I got into the Metropolitan Opera Boys Chorus and I was in it from when I was twelve till I was seventeen and we would go. Oh you know we would take the subway down. There would be in Janicki Alaba William or or Cavalleria Rusticana or Carmen was our big was our big opera we we had <hes> two big choruses and <hes> so when I was going to apply to college at a High School I sang for music and art and I got in on my voice which was horrible I was I was a boy soprano and <hes> a bad one but I got in so I got into music and art and <hes> then when I <hes> <hes> you you know I I I didn't I couldn't sing. I couldn't be in the entertainment world and then I went to Oberlin college which had a great theater department and I didn't want to do anything into theater. I felt you know that my dad was a legend. I DIDN'T WANNA go into that business in New York City. That was you know he was he was he was very very prominent. A giant and I didn't WanNa do any of that. I didn't think I had any any of the skill and then when I got out of the were calling people for the Vietnam War and I didn't want to be in that area either so I <hes> <hes>.

The Guy who runs a show in the night and directly under studies so slowly through that process I got more and more into directing but initially I was a government major Oberlin and I wanted nothing to do with the theater and the rest is history tackling quick this a quick departure a little a little side <hes> aside nope but you work with two people that were interested in in <hes> in Your Road Company Days Don Knotts and Schaja any any quick memories of either of them. Yes I know we could do a seven hour. Show James Easily. Yes I know I ran a theatre in San Diego Goldie off Broadway theatre way off Broadway theatre and I was he a tick director and we would do star vehicles we did <hes> <hes> Mister Roberts with <hes> James Drury the Virginian James Goodbye Charlie with Joanne Worley and we did <hes> the junior wolfe with <hes> with Carl Betz in all the big television stars back and then yeah we did last year the Red Hot lovers don not and it was a big hit so <hes> so we brought it up to the Huntington Hartford which is a theater we're here in.

"Looks pretty good. I mean, he's he didn't do nothing. He looks like he's. You mean he did do nothing last year? Right. But this year, I think it might be a different story. I think they're playing their young guys. Even though you're you're calling up these mistakes. I think that's the right thing to do get these guys out there, get them some seasoning Tigers need to do the same thing. Now, these guys they've got our twenty eight twenty nine thirty year old guys out here. They're not going to be part of the rebuilt Jones. He's twenty seven and I'll tell you what he looks great on the basis and he can play center field. I think that's one bright smut Jones for the Tigers hitting the ball hitting the ball a lot of thorny like for power. But we don't want to see him draw. Few wise. Because he's a great base writer. Yes, he is. I agree with you. Fielder showed it on the basis of this guy yesterday when they lost Candelaria. I think it was it was on second base. And he's not playing right behind second base. When it was Beckham. I believe at Ben hit the ball right up the middle. It doesn't candle. You're the players fielder guys, right? Being able to take halfway between. Second and third phase what they do. Annoy, you gotta take a peek. Right. You need based we're down four runs. He's an important rudder on base. You cannot get picked up in a situation. Back to back to Jacoby Jones. He's not swinging missing as much although he did swing in a bad pitch strike out yesterday. Striking almost ten strike outs. A game one hundred eighty strikeouts in in in nineteen games with no power except for Nico Goodwin. That's the only one with any power. He's done a power enter. Oh, stewart. But I mean, I don't know they only I don't know how they got it seven runs in one game. But I mean, that's all they've done. It will end matchup is going crazy. We set a a a season high for his tonight runs, of course, only got one or two every game. Here's the hitches. I told a greater hits his first home run is a tiger is up of first home artifice career in prayer and the guys in the middle of the line of cash Leno don't have petty. It's it's really discouraging Naasi aiding. What what what's what's really worse Ron is? When they get one injury. Like now, you know, Mercer is injured at shortstop. He was playing so well and then they made four errors in one game. I think three in one inning. And because these guys are playing on a position they don't really have good backups at any position. I mean, they put Gordon Beckham Mitch short. He was really a second basement. He made an air, and then can't can't alert throwing her, but a good first base dug that out of the dirt, but you got nickel goodra met. I. He's bad. He's not bad. But. He's really nice. You can tell that really up for sure you can. But I mean, I mean the guys that God, I I, you know, I don't blame the manager. This is what we've got in her system. Nobody ready to take over in an injury, by the way. That define the way after the next break, and we got calls coming in. But I promise people the minor league stats. I'm going to give you some minor league stance when we're done. Well, I looked up the minor leagues running. I like met manning is doing really good and Alex Fatos doing really good at doubly. Those are the guys we need to see out here and soon, let's get the young guy out here. Good one. Some experience even be bad. They might get hit around the guys we got now our not part of the rebuild and they're not gonna get much for Ross. And these guys are thirty years old. Nobody wants to thirty year old second baseman Arison. Nobody's gonna wanna thirty two year old pitcher Ross we ought to just get rid of these guys and get the young guys in here. And let's see what they can do right now because we're not gonna get any seats of fans in the seats with this team. They've got that's for sure. You're welcome. They're not coming to the seats. Now. No doubt about that. Final. Final is going to one point five. He's always been twelve innings. Fifteen strikeouts in no walks. You're going gonna see companies guys by the end of the year Funkhouser. And they thought was he's had a tough start. Now. Punk Houser is not doing that. Well, he let me get the sense. Again, a moment front of me here. Now. Oh and two of the six point five seventy Irene twelve innings. Ten hits nine runs earned ten walks and sixteen strikeouts. Not too good. You need a little more work and Toledo. So Bo bridges. Fourteen ten hits three runs to earn for one seventeen strikeout. Bo bridges is doing rule one point two ninety array. So there. No, not all bad there. And I really like the starter. Jake Rogers in AA. I really liked then start folks. He's. Nine games. He's been about twenty nine times. Six runs which is good heat hits sixteen total bases. One triple and two home runs and eight RBI's. That's excellent. Six strikeouts, which isn't horrible. Not great. Like is nine walks for Rogers. I like that. So Rogers coming out hitter pretty doggone good in Castro's mental key to. We're gonna we'll Castro sitting three forty one in Toledo. With four forty four times up. And and he's how many years he's got four. It's a little bit too many. He's a kid. In cosmic Pete Cosmas new nice job. And he's not notice about it is a hitter, I should say four games. He spent fourteen times we runs five hits a double in home run into RBI's one strike up. No one which I don't like to see and Mike into good for him. He'll be back soon. He's really had a on three games LTd bands to runs five fits and a double to army is hitting four fifty five. No, oxo alone. No, no. I'm wrong. Hold on to five strikes, and a stolen base. The disciplines still not there either. It's still not there. The discipline. And the Tigers minor league system just too many strikeouts. Non networks, and they're supposed to change that you don't change it overnight. Hopefully that'll later in the year. That'll get get better. We got emails and calls coming like crazy. Let's go to combine Windsor Conway. Oh, hi, Ryan running. I didn't think you'd be here today. Why wouldn't I be here today? Well, I thought you'd be celebrating four twenty day by getting you know, we'll wait and maybe on celebrating. Now, I'm not a weed guy. Well, neither am I. But I just have have you ever heard Cowboys corner. No. I will say when on the valet show every weekday just before five thirty or just after it. Okay. Yeah. I've been on this last seventeen years, but. Anyways. So other Tigers are pretty good up the middle. You know, what the grinder behind the play in Arizona Mercer at the key dome. And Jones is one of the best center field is in baseball. But boy the corner of defenses kind of frailty. I don't know. What what we're that meant pros. Very very good word, and I'm not gonna argue with that. Yeah. Well, yeah. Cabrera's all right at first but point with with Kathy owls out in the outfield. Oh, boy and. I think. Candelaria is below average at third what he's average. Yeah. Kind of my average to my I he horrible. But he seems to be like he's a bit. Just be that. He doesn't have as much range as a lot of third base. I know he's got a heck of an arm arm. Yeah. Maybe not a lot of range. But he's okay at their base. I can live with him at third. Yeah. But anyway, now that you think that when they won't do it. Now, even though more of the season, when do you think we'll see manning or boroughs or one of these young pitchers? Yeah. I think you're gonna see again. Let's see what happens in that really hurt him. When Matt Moore went down to the mat and more into excellent games. He did. And then really hurt when he went down. Let's give it another month. And see what happens, and I think you're gonna see manning probably September and probably her Fido and September two. Yeah. Well, they're more than eighteen. But you remember how David quite got right to the big league. They wanted them to be drying card right on a high seventeen years of age. Yeah. He'll be sixty four Bundy by the way, but he wasn't anywhere near ready, and he ended up injuring his arm. I did one hundred miles an hour. Well, on the guns back, then those were legit guns for the most part back, then oh, I know. He really. But he was on over the place. He can tell by the way, you knew it was coming back who's trying to make it come back now. Carlos Zambrano if you will. Problem with your h Ron always not quite he's thirty seven years as vague amount of. Chicago talk show the other day. He said I'm ready to come back in the bullpen. And once I talked to one Scott about it last year or less less the other day. He told me I sent a Thiessen. I heard he's come back. Let's see run about three hundred pounds now three hundred pounds blue. He's a big boy, really. Well, he was a big boy anyways to sixty wasn't. He he was to seventy they get them listen to seventy five, but that's just paper talk. Why they couldn't find Bobby gang? Flaming. Another big boy, but they couldn't find Gerry remember, Gary Peters. Lifton? I had him on my show when I was in Brandon. Do you remember sixty nine when Gary Peters? Yeah. Yeah. Earlier than six 'cause I go he when he had thirty two scoreless innings in spring training, sixty nine seasons. Thirty couldn't have gotten either one of us out.
