Robert yeah I was going to talk about the passing of Linda Tripp today yes well I always consider her a hero she was the only person in the group of people that was willing to tell the truth even though she she got lamb blasted by the press people calling her a liar she was able to show that she was the only one that was willing to tell the truth when other people such as the Clintons were willing to lie under oath and lied to the FBI and so I've always considered her a hero for troops and for people that want to stand up for the truth and I think it was very sad when I heard that she died today yeah yeah you're right it was very sad she was I can't say I guess the original whistle blower but certainly a whistle blower and and in everything you just said about I was kind of felt the same way she was seventy I think seventy years old I had been in the news for a long time but of course she was the one if everyone remembers the night of the Olympics but a president Bill Clinton you know here we are it worked Roberton and thinking about the recently with what was happening with our current president it was the whistle blower all the time and if you go back to the Clinton impeachment then she was the whistle blower thank you for your call my friend yeah by tape recording she taped the re intern Monica Lewinski that's how all that came about all that that was in the news Robert and she was working at the Pentagon of course she had befriended Monica Lewinsky Monica Lewinski we all know the story former White House intern turned out she was having the affair with the president and then back in the ninety seven she made twenty two hours of of these recordings the surreptitious recordings of Monica Lewinsky speaking about the affair and then so then she hands it over to the special prosecutor and that one was less severe than in Ken Starr well he was in the news all the time back then and the Clinton supporters trip became one of the primary villains Robert cultural hero forty Clinton supporters she was a villain of the impeachment episode just as if we ever found out who the whistle blower quote whistle blower and quote in the trump impeachment it would be flip flop right for anyone who support the president that individual would be it would be a villain but he was a false Freddie would be trade of Monica Lewinsky and silhouettes he's competence she remained unapologetic about her whole role in the scandal she said that she hoped at the time that the taping of Monica Lewinsky would ultimately benefit and she also remained adamant did the bill Clinton's misbehavior with the twenty two year old intern deserve to be exposed but she did she passed away seventy years old also Bernie Sanders dropping out of the race so now we have just as many

I think kept tropical fish as well. Sean. What happened to those peaceful night when you were out? Okay let me try. And a short version of a happen is may thirtieth birthday about two hundred people came. We roasted pig in the backyard. It became a Luau. Happy Birthday Party. I AIN'T J. Cast found a note from not long ago. Say he does come in ten. The party would mean even have to leave. His House. Sent me a chilly for birthday present but two hundred people show up and we told him not to bring gifts but people bigham anyway. When gifts was one of those goldfish. You Win in Carnival and easy de on. It was attached to a hat and not attached to a hat to go play attached semi thought. I needed something like that and continue my lifestyle but About two days later I remember. Everybody finally cleared out and going home. It's partly I was laying in bed with A. Oh my God. There's a live goldfish in that pilot. Prejudice of my so. I'm going to happen. But the smallest container of food at them book thing in this thing will be dead righty lived. He lived for another month or so and people started thinking like Goldfish. So they bring Goldfish to to play with this goldfish. And then guy gave me big tank. They had in his garage. He wanted to get bad and turned out to be a tropical fish tank. I didn't know this and so I had by that time. I hear about Lebanon Goldfish. And then you put them the bigger tank you put him in. They'll grow and if you keep minutes model and they didn't know this you learn by earn so when I go from metaphysics come to visit and experience. I said I said I'll be ready She said she says you go awfully active. Tha that and say they know it's Saturday night to right. We go out come home about two thirty in the morning. Go Fish Dad. The the the heating element gun Kill Them Barley so I started Flushing down the toilet. Those the humane thing to do when we should sit in and he wouldn't go down the toilet afternoon and seven for put him in the freezer and we're on the road. The next day came on by Muslim. Don't freezer fish and I figured I can't tell them in the garbage now. Just do you know do that. Keeping them frozen tend to a dancer during the way out in the country at the time in children of say bester days go fish guys got nothing but Moose Indira down. He looks at it. Looks at me and I said the kids miss it Fischer my bar home says below. It says the kids. Well how how did things change after you met? You met Fiona and you guys had kids. I guess we looked at me and this guy needs fixing if I've ever seen anybody needs so The quick to have family and it's really great is nothing I really experienced before order you've written you've written great songs about marriage. You've also written songs about divorce. Which which is easier to write about divorce has good friend. Steve Government said the reason news Berry sounds about heartbreak is because when you go into that you all the time in the world to sit around sorry for yourself or write a song about it but when things are going good relationship to last thing or lose stop-and-go that's very so great things. Are you know when you when you went to see a doctor back in nineteen ninety six? John What did he tell you? A nosedive head shaving handed this eversource like lump of my neck and I didn't think much of it but it didn't go away and then start to go away in came back. Even worse wasn't visible to the eye so I mentioned it to a back Joe. Mind who also just said. It's nothing and I looked in on a little boy I wanted to go see. A said just didn't seem by. I felt fine. Felt good never thing. It was cancer but finding went I went to voice. Doctor was concerned about this. The throat scratchy. And he knew what was right away next thing I knew. He had a doctor's in her room. All looking down my throat and these again turns and stuff you wanted them to know with this loop back and they sit me in furor was with me and they send us over across. The street to Friday. Met almost close in time to see another doctor a one surgery two days later on me and I go into fast and need so down. I think it's the most difficult time for most people. They're diagnosed with cancer. You WanNa make sure you got the right Doctor what kind of treatment did you have to get our? They had Surgery where the big scoop neck because the kids are spread too much you know over there and they had to be out there all those and they found the primary with that was at the bottom of my tongue. There may have to do that anymore. I found that they handle. All with Radiation Chemo. Imagine the the radical surgery and I remember my base. Steve Government Stave Daddy Leukemia. He had radical chemotherapy but the whole time I knew him. We'd be on the road together. He'd have to drive to the nearest hospital and get a bunch of Chemo. Acted nothing to it yet but I saw what he went through with that and I just do my chemotherapy online. That they don't want you going do your surgery and come back and tell me have cancer anymore and I said no take care of the rest of it. They were concerned about because I was a singer. China say my vocal cords and I said Hey. I couldn't sing in the first place to make make up. I just talk and then at the end of sense I go take the word out so if you know it's the end of a thought. How was it to sing again? After you've finished your treatment it took a while because it was mainly I just didn't have the strength to say it was and slowly Feel a major that you picked up guitar and try and sing of once in a while and to the bay year before and also like you confidence factor. You know you know what's going to happen when you open your mouth to sing especially find people so we booked a show over in eastern Tennessee near Bristol best. Those that have been tendency in half in West. Virginia we bunker to show related. And we figured that if goes off of maybe it'll take nine ten before five back but there is about eight hundred people there and we sang saying half the songs I ever wrote. I just going good kept singing. And afterwards we stayed in every single person show gains afterwards and it was. I was back on track again. That's only break I've ever had from singing in forty seven years right from your first album. John You were writing songs about getting old. And you've got songs about that on. This album is different than you expected. It was GONNA be back at twenty three. I mean between my ears. Nineteen I have not seventy two years old. I can't remember Meknes. Seventy two zero as a kid. That was anything like me but sometimes I pass by the mirror. Go well you might be losing your hair.

"Just give me one back and hold on to believe and this is just the hard wave singer and songwriter. John Klein used his years growing up in working class. Maywood to we've stories that would break your heart or make you laugh out loud. Sometimes both would happen in the same song was loved by fans and revered by fellow musicians. John Prime passed away yesterday due to complications from Kobe. Nineteen seventy-three music critic author and Co host of WBZ's sound opinions. Grech hot joins us now to talk about the life and work of John Prime Gregg? Welcome back to reset. Thank you jen. So a couple of months ago we were sitting together talking about your retirement from the Tribune after thirty two. Pay Per lot has happened since then. I if you were working there today. What would the first few lines of your remembrance about John Bryan say He was one of us. I think that prying you know was both a serious singer songwriter. One of the geniuses of the last half century but at the same time. He never acted like one. You know I would compare them to somebody like Dylan Bob Dylan the level of craft and genius. That he brought to his writing but Dylan was sort of unapproachable. He's he's almost unknowable. Inscrutable figure prion. You could always imagine yourself having a drink with him at the bar. In fact I I had a drink with John. Pry Bar once and he was always it was always like talking to an old friend so there was a a humanity there an empathy that always projected itself not only in the person but in the songs and to me the line between John Song and who he was like in real life was was very thin indeed in fact. I think they melded together more often than not. So there's the lyrics and then there's the music talk about his approach to to the music. His music was pretty simple. You know it was a folk based country based you know. His family was from the south and moved to Chicago for for jobs. So he grew up as a mailman and You know he was in the service the military services well so he's a blue collar guy and a lot of ways And grew up around blue collar. People you know salt of the Earth type people you know no. Bs type of people Chicago people so his songwriting was informed by that. Don't make too too complex. Don't make it higher than you think your audience is. It's it's almost like I want to relate to these people In the way that I want to be related to and so his craft was deceptively simple but at the same time as gift for melody and also for wordplay. Where were you know on unparalleled? I think he was one of the the genius at putting words together in a way that was extraordinary You know there was both the mundane details of everyday life that filtered their way into the songs and then at the same time like you said I liked living deep down inside my head and there was this element of surrealism in their his gift. His ability to hold comedy and Pathos together at the same time in the same song sometimes within the space of a couple of lines. And giving you this complete human experience in the span of three or four verses. What was the live performance with him like he essentially did the show that he did in the folk clubs of Chicago in Nineteen Sixty nine? Nine hundred seventy seventy one when he was first starting out He did that. Show is entire life. He never thought there was any need to gussied up or change it. I mean he added musicians over the years. He played with some great musicians Had A had a great touring band But it was still a pretty stripped down affair and it was basically John doing a set like he would have done at a at the old town school folk music or Old Town you know. He was just himself up there on stage singing his songs and he could hold an audience wrapped for two and a half three hours. Doing forty forty five songs ranging from obscurities to classics like Sam Stone. Hello in there and I probably attended a dozen fifteen of his shows and everyone was different. The banter between songs was different. You know the stories he would tell to sort of set up. The songs were were different but at the same time There was a feeling of like you're GonNa get a great show because the guy never found it was always in the moment and his audience was in the moment with them and it sounds like there was a certain intimacy there during his absences. Absolutely I mean he used to play in rooms I mean he told me his first audience was about twelve people. You know fifty cents He got fifty cents for every head they brought into the tour you know. I got twelve people to show up you as his career spiraled upward over the years slowly but surely cult following turns into you know major you know major mid Tier Act. He was never a superstar but at the same time he was able to sell out places like the Chicago Theater. Which is like you know. Three thousand plus people. So that's a hell of a way to you. Know to make a living in a big audience. And at the same time he made it seem like he was singing to a few friends in his living room. So Again that intimacy that sense that we were in it together You know people throwing around a lot in this Cove Ed pandemic. You know. We're we're we're in this together. John always felt like his shows were about. We're in this together. It's about this community here sharing this music. When you think about somebody for springsteen he'll take the quote unquote regular guy and tournament to this sort of heroic mythic character in his songs but price characters were were quieter. They were simpler but they were still so memorable. Talk about that element of his writing. Well I think the key was again as you said You know the characters were were down to earth and and They were relatable. They were people like him He was writing about what he knew what he knew. Was you know working class was You know salt of the Earth people you know the farmers from the South the factory workers in Chicago the Mailman in Chicago. The you know the guys who were not superstars They went to see superstars perform but they weren't superstars themselves. I think John Always cared himself. Like a member of his audience springsteen to was able to relate to his audience but his gift was in creating these big choruses these big refrains these big big songs and by the time born in the USA. The songs are blown so out of proportion that people didn't even understand what they were about you know born in the USA was consistently misinterpreted as this. You Know Grand Patriotic Song. When it was in many ways exactly the opposite prime songs had a lot of layers to them But I don't think there was any doubt about who we was singing to or who you singing about. I mean to me. It was startling for him like an angel from Gourmet to adopt a woman's voice. You know one of his earliest songs early Seventies. It wasn't a common common thing to do that. And I don't know if it's a common thing to even do that now. But I mean it was one of those things where he could relate to people like himself male or female. It was You know that sense of empathy that came across in all his songs and by extension that empathy created a sense of intimacy and made the songs intimate so he wasn't about creating these big sing along refrains alone. You know Song Lake. Marie certainly had it sing along aspects to it but at the same time there was a sense of he was writing about everyday people in the vernacular of everyday people. You spoke to him a couple of years ago for sound opinions. What was the most memorable part of that conversation for you? I probably interviewed prying a dozen times over over thirty years and You know the the sound opinions interview. I I felt like I'd heard every story and you know. Of course he you know he was never as I said on stage he. He wasn't one of those guys who just kind of had a stick. You know it was always kind of in the moment. So whatever sort of popped into his head he'd talk about and you know he told his story and I'd actually heard him tell before about meeting. Phil Spector but it was just surreal. You know story you know He. He brought some details that I hadn't heard before meeting the surreal character in this serial setting like the just the oddity of John Prime Meeting this. You know sort of a gigantic music figure who was sort of on the down slope of his career at that sort of very vulnerable moment in the to live sort of intersecting for one night and creating this memorable series of events and and prime was just great at telling those kind of stories that you could just imagine yourself sitting there you know over a few beers hearing these stories over and over again all you WanNa do is hear him. Talk and tell these stories because he was so entertaining. I mean the guy could have been like I don't know a camp counselor or something or preacher. He was just so mesmerizing. You didn't even need music and then you go well. The wonder this guy's such a great songwriter. Because he's so great at not only coming up with stories but the the vivid details that he was able to include in those stories a really made them just. Pop made them live in your head for for decades. Well we're going to go out on a song you chose. It's one of John primes earliest songs. Sam Stone really quickly by the song. Well you know. There's a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes you know. Jesus died for nothing. I suppose know I mean in those two lines just crush me. Every time you know he He talked about a guy returning from Vietnam. Got Hooked on heroin. New People like that that just you know Lives were destroyed by Vietnam. They may have come back in one piece but they were really never the same and this guy Became a heroin addict and Egypt's talked about this sense of hopelessness and this guy's life and again that sense of empathy you know. Forgotten figure. He talked a lot about outsiders. People who are overlooked people that society in care about in his songs. And that's onto me is where where it all starts..

Remembering John Prine

"For more than fifty years ago John wrote songs that were sad and funny and overall just human songs about regular work in life songs about quiet ordinary days rolling by the songs that were incredibly profound he wrote songs you could grab your guitar and sing along with songs about simple honest truths songs you could use a sort of a road map to life songs that use the language that you spoke with your friends at the bar and songs that you could spend three or four weeks parsing and trying to figure out John died on Tuesday at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville he died from complications of COPD nineteen he was seventy three years old that road map to live John sang about so often he was singing to one person in particular take a listen to this I want to say this is when whenever I've read naming this sounds like advice S. as in I'm talking to myself and you know I was trying to convince myself for that at the time that time don't get wrapped up in your anger you know because people don't realize it but there you can be your own best friend your own best your own worst enemy yeah it's hard to say if you don't know yourself for for some reason you're the hardest person to get up for your case you know it's it's how it's difficult to forgive yourself but within three years of these that's kind of where I was staying there and it works for me is that I'm say this John Prine and Mariposa folk festival in a really Ontario over his seventy three years John's songwriting genius caught the attention of pretty much the biggest names in music Bob Dylan called him a midwestern mind trips to the nth degree who writes beautiful songs Kris Kristofferson hated him after he discovered him because his songs were so good and so easy Bonnie Raitt famously did a cover of his song angel from Montgomery which launched her career John this paper trail for tons of younger folk and country singers people like Jason Isbell and Margo price and Kacey Musgrave if you ever saw John do a live show he tell these hilarious stories and then sing the most devastating songs which is the combination that you really need in twenty eighteen John released his album tree of forgiveness at that time it was first new record in thirteen years and now well I guess it's in honor of John Prine I want to revisit this really special interview I did with him around the time that album came out I got to talk about a line of his that I repeat myself at least once a week even now as we go through this whole thing here's my conversation with the late John Prine when I get to heaven MACA guides in thank you for more blessings than one man can stand then I'm gonna get a guitar and started writing little band check in do swell down any day after live grand and then I'm going to give it back and is that this is there is god is my witness the judge John you can you

"Music John Prine has died at the age of seventy three his family said he had complications caused by coronavirus his songwriting began while he was a policeman in Chicago I'm not song that you can hear hello in that pro finding an elderly couple is typical of his song writing style small well observe stories of the lives of everyday folk music legends he influenced have in the past twenty four hours been paying their tributes Bruce Springsteen said on Twitter that he is crushed by the loss that speak to music historian Russell Clark who joins us from his home in London about John Prine's legacy I'm good afternoon good afternoon thanks for joining us that many business around the world will not be a hugely will not be a will not find trying to be picky familiar name but he did have a huge huge influence on on people who are household names right he did yes he had a small small and devoted audience and made his living just you know it was all down the road for fifty years he was here in the U. K. last year you had suddenly dates planned for I think thirty two thousand and twenty one so you know he he that's what he did for a living but he wrote songs that other people cupboards and they wrote songs that influence people so what's not many people necessarily bosses reptiles in the east so the reason I'm out but he didn't often trouble the chart compilers the point is if it's a bit like they said about the velvet underground if you are familiar only a thousand people below the velvet underground's album but they all formed the band sold the people look for John Prine rattled started writing their own songs and performing and then you know the second generation of those twenty years later he gets rediscovered so it's that it's that kind of influence and he was he came to prominence in the early seventies so that was it was kind of a second wave of folk revival in the early seventies on the back of that kind of thing to someone to sing the people will be familiar with cats even some that kind of thing where it says intro John we we were very short of time but I want to get as much in as possible means that the the profound influence that he had of the claim that you have have outlined on the kinds of people that we're talking about you know Bob Dylan radio admired him a Bruce Springsteen of course what was it about his his song writing that made him such an influence to think what he wrote about the sort of greasy of blue color issues you said in your instruction that he was on a mail that he was about five six years delivered the post in Chicago writing songs on the side so we managed to find stories possibility observe to delivering the published about about people you know in and the wrote about them in a very Ryan melancholy way and no one else was ready to protest songs are rising romantic songs he's become a greasy blue collar songs and so Springsteen for example who you think is the guy that writes best about political stuff is directly descended from John Prine I mean they will both actually tact with that new Bob Dylan the thing the spring thing went very commercial and we all know about that the jump from just sort of kept on doing the same sort of thing and have these really devoted audience that would come in seeing where we played in your town we will leave it that music historian Russell Clark on the legacy.

"So you know? And then Steve Goodman. Who's a great songwriter? Who was there? He would have a great uncle. The city of New Orleans. He Calls Chris Christopherson in and watch John Ryan. Christofferson comes to town and hates it and says he hates them because he made it look so effortless. People had worked years and years to write songs like that. And then this mailman shows up. These songs like hated him for his extraordinary talent. That's exactly I can't think he had this incredible gift to you. Know of not just being relatable but also of helping people work through their own heartache and loss and why do you think that was the case you know? He really processed laws and process heart ache. Like we actually do and not like hallmark cards or mindfulness APPs. Ask US to like I. There's a great example of he has a great song called all the best. You know which is a song. He wrote to his wife ex wife. I should say after they had split up and starts off with. You know I wish you love and happiness in fact I wish you all the best. I wish you don't do like I do. And never fall in love with someone like you like simultaneously simultaneously feeling this. This profound love for someone when you when you divorced but also not being afraid to shy away from the hate you know and and the true despair is a he. Didn't he didn't cloud those emotions. And you know when it came to songs about death. He wrote a great song called. Please don't bury me down in the cold cold ground. Which is a song about death? Not about its finale finality or like the way the New Yorker would write about death but instead about like. Hey please don't give away my organs because I want to be able to see when I go to heaven. So it's it's it's funny song like he he. I feel like he processed he processed grief you process loss in the way that people do when they sit down in bars and kind of chuckle and laugh a little bit about their sadness. Not In this sort of fake profound way. That sometimes aren't asks us to do so. He he feels like a real person like he. Has this authenticity about him. Well Yeah I mean. He was a mailman from Chicago. Whose Dad was from Kentucky and he never lost that many of us. He's also been through some stuff. Hey look I know. He underwent cancer surgery in one thousand nine hundred eight to remove a tumor in his neck in two thousand thirteen. He had part of one lung removed to treat lung cancer. Imagine that probably had something to do with some of his work. You know I I was talking to a couple of my friends about this. And these are these are folks who knew him pretty well and they said that you know when John Got Kovic nineteen but he's diagnosed with over nineteen and he and he was brought to the hospital. The assumption was that he'd just be able to power through it because look what he had gotten through. It was after that time when he has his throat cancer that his voice completely changed and he told me in an interview one time that he thought his career was over after that and he thought he was a singer turns out he was a songwriter and even though he started to sing a little bit like this and not as beautifully as in the early versus Debra Gravitas. That brought a roughness that I think people really really loved about him But I think after that after that time was over he started to reflect more on his mortality but in his most recent record the tree of forgiveness he talks a lot about the afterlife. So it's really interesting to listen to it today. Given his passing. I know that's why you interviewed him a few years back and tell me a little bit about that experience experience of of interviewing him. It was a trip. Jamie. You know what it's like you know you and I have had coffees where we talked about interviewing people we think are cool and how How weird that. We're that is Allie. And how you don't WanNa be at loser in front of them you know. Try very very hard usually. You're you ended up being loser. But Yeah Yeah. You don't want to sound like Chris. Farley when interviews Paul McCartney and you remember the Beatles so we kept it cool. It was me and one of the producers Chris Trowbridge he set up the interview. And Yeah we talked about his life and we've talked about his songwriting. We talked about sort of the renaissance of younger songwriters discovering his music. I think around the late eighties and early nineties. The tree of forgiveness the record most recent one was his first one thirteen years. He felt a bit forgotten about and frankly he was playing shows to about one hundred and hundred and fifty people now out of nowhere. New Generation discovered his music and he was back to playing pretty much packed halls if not bigger halls and he had ever played before. But I couldn't help at one point. He has he has one verse of one of the songs that has meant the world to me and I repeat to myself an awful lot and I actually got the opportunity to take down the artifice of being a cool journalist and just tell him how much this to me and I was say to someone last night that I feel very privileged. Talk to me a little bit more about this because I re listened to this interview this morning and there is extraordinary. Moment where you where you go over this passage with him from Bruce Orange chain of Soros. Talk to me about this passage and what that was like for. You can read it for you. Yeah please you know I think a lot about you know when you when you deal with tragedy as I have as as everybody has you know. There's there's a hardening that can happen to you afterwards and you know I have friends of mine who have never recovered from that hardening and I often would worry that that I would. I would become sort of hardened become sort of cold I remember. I was in my kitchen one night and the song came for the first time and in the words are you can gaze at the window. Get Mad and get mad at Dewey Zale wet. What DOES IT Matter? But it don't go.

"Here in. This is our nighttime brief edition a few corona virus headlines from today to get you caught up. I on -Tario Premier. Doug Ford expressed his anger at the lack of Kovic nineteen testing in the province again. No more excuses it's unacceptable. I agree with you a hundred percent. I could give you every excuse under the the book why it wasn't happening the testing capabilities or the assessment centers or not having enough free agent. I'm done with that. I'm done. We have everything in place. No more excuses and you can see on. -Tario is conducting fewer than three thousand tests day even though it has a capacity for thirteen thousand raising concerns that it's failing to capture the true toll of the novel Corona virus in the province and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announce new measures today to support more businesses and young. Canadians were making changes to the Canada. Summer Jobs Program. This year we will now give. Cs J. Employers a subsidy of up to one hundred percent to cover the cost of hiring students. We will also extend the timeframe for job placement until the winter because we know that some jobs will start later than usual and because many businesses have had to scale back their operations. They will be able to hire students part time. This follows criticism. That benefits programs didn't reach enough people for small businesses. He's proposing they will be able to compare their lost revenue to the months of January and February as opposed to the same month the previous year. Okay so usually. With these evening episodes we try and answer a key question for you about cove in nineteen but tonight we're going to do something a little bit different. We're GONNA remember legendary singer Songwriter. John Prime we get to heaven. God's hand thank you for more blessings that one man can stand then getting guitar rock and Roll Band John. Pine died of complications caused by covert nineteen seventy-three and then moving to get back. I'm going to smoke a cigarette. This man Maslo kiss pretty girl was a songwriters songwriter. He had many admirers. Including musical. Icons like Bob Dylan. Johnny Cash Kris Kristofferson friend of the POD and host of Q. Tom Power is a big fan of John's and he's here with me today to remember him. Hey Tom Hi Jamie. It's such a sad topic to talk about. But I do want to say that always wanted to be referred to as friend of the pod initiate that. Well you are one of our best friends. Thank you so much for being here today. Even though it's not under the best of circumstances no it's so sad last night I had just finished watching the HBO Show Mic Millions Enjoyable. Show that like we had just finished the second last episode and we were about to watch the last episode and I got the texts that John had died and like I just broke like it's it's amazing to me. I think it speaks to the power of of music that you know. I think we can often sort of pretend that music has power in art has a power. We're never entirely sure. And then when someone like this passes the way you feel in your like your uncle passed or like a family friend. Past is is is is palpable. You know so got punch and then I went online and you know somebody people around the world are remembering him right now look. I mentioned that he was like a song writer. Songwriter and I know that he never had this. Big Chart topping hit but he was so beloved by other musicians so beloved by all these people over the world like you just mentioned you. It sort of feels like an uncle dying. And what was it about his work that made him so unique. Well he was sort of everything. You'd want Anna Songwriter. He could be the funniest songwriter. You've ever here in your life. He could be the satis songwriter. You've ever here in your life kind of at the same time. He could speak in everyday language. He could talk to you like your buddy at the bar and he could also be found in rape poetry that you'd spend weeks deciphering so he was the total package with simplicity of his music. That made it accessible to anyone and especially the working people like. He felt like he could be a working class working person songwriter. That never talk down to him because he was a member of the working class. You know that the story of John Prion is that he was a mailman who wrote songs on his route. You know and he gets up at an open Mike at a place called the old town school of folk music in Chicago. You know and decided to show off a couple of these songs that he had written while out delivering packages and he gets up on stage and he sings. Its Song. The first song you sing is is pretty much the closest he ever had to hit. It was angel from Montgomery which became a gigantic hit by Bonnie Raitt. After my mother it's the first ever sinks and there's no applause. Packed Room has no applause. And he says he really thought that he had messed up at all. This time that he had told himself in the postal van that it wasn't gonNA work turns out. He was rakes. No one was clapping..

Twenty minutes per phone. Yeah well not a problem but I thought I was just sitting here thinking you know. I didn't think this interview was ever going to happen now. I know it's not you call. Yeah I know it's just that you know I not only At donut see many interviews with you. I mean I can't even remember ever being offered an interview with few saws real excited when they said that. You're willing to talk to my right that you don't do interviews very often. Just don't do them unless you know unless we get like a like a new record out after know. Yeah 'cause Just hardly ever do because I just don't see my than I'm always worked out good but I. I can't really see the reason why I think that the thing you know. Okay well try to make it to miserable for You know these days immune responses I hear people raving about your music as always I people are always talking about you as a businessman and oh boy and how how great this is and it is oh boy a panacea? I mean this is the perfect the perfect thing for you. The as opposed to working for Major label it is. I never really had any of the horror stories of the like the bands and other individual artists had on a major label. I it's not anything like that. That's why started. Oh boy I just come from a working class background. You know and I couldn't really to work. For Warner Brothers. What could they do for me? You know like nothing because then money before I make and I just didn't see any sense it didn't make sense to me. You go after all you have to do is go through it twice. I went to Atlantic and then I went through it in an asylum for three records and I knew everybody I knew it all the problem and look like a new faces. They just changed suits and change Labels you know and there's always a guy that's hanging out with you know Tonya. Like each gonna freely tell them what the stuff is about the label and then there's another guy that obviously doesn't know you the guy working for him so like the only thing he does is tell me who you are. You know like you know just couldn't go through it again. That's not really I didn't want it to affect me making music and still but I I have a way to get my records out. Even though the records were the main thing with me sick during would have made more friends by by Going around and playing in a club or something or concert hall the records You know just kinda big it out there. And they're self supportive definitive paying for themselves and they they sell slow. Insure like jazz records. Do Yeah but you know. Everybody says when they're talking about you businesswise. They said well you know he gets to keep five six bucks a record comparative to the average artist on a major label. Mike at a dollar. Yeah true but to make it to the bank. You know we're doing. We're doing good right now. and pickers not a good time for independent labels lot emerge get rid of fallen are getting ready to because all kinds of thanks mainly the distributors get bought up. And you're doing good if you're supporting yourself with an independent label right. Now you're doing excellent and I'm sure there'll be better days and everything but we're doing all right. We're we're staying above water and everything's working. We did spend more money on his last couple of records and they sold more but we were able to get played on radio and stuff. What are you typically selling now? Actually Lost Dogs did oh lost dogs. Bit around. Three fifty years was around. Four twenty now the Laverick devout right now is showing slow. But it's good. We can't really tell with a record like tells been out for a year in the bottom line on. This sounds great. You get to keep more of your money. You get your artistic control. And you don't have to answer to the to the major labels truth and are there downsides to this and on top of it like The you're a all the stuff on the road. I it took a while to catch up. But because of the excitement and Sean the records This has been great. You're on a road all the places I've gotten better. The jets rooms could prettier. And the money's just thought double. Wow so like and that's all I'm sure a cumulative thing of what we've been doing over the last five years with two records and the Constitution and everything stay the truth mark. Things could be a great time attack. Got a great home life now and I'm enjoying the shows and Everything just fine you know. Great do We haven't really announced because we have all the participants. But I'm I'm writing for my next record. And then meanwhile I WANNA do do ads record me. All girls like doing sheet song. Wow and WE'RE GONNA RAISE. Start on it as early as next month. I just haven't got everybody as from ballistic girls are GonNa do it during the country's chancellor talk to you about doing so But that's kind of what I'm working on now other than that. I'm going to start Christmas shopping. This is great. I really good just spent six weeks with my family in Ireland. We had a great time. Watch from there and Sala relatives shirt off the babies all over the place. Tv's got a son who slugged Suma and all that happened to an power man. Okay ask one of the question about the label and that his body. You think more people having done what you've done and then would you advise them to do? Yeah would Tell you we seem to do the perfect time. It was just You know we we thing about the mid eighties is when we started boy the reason. I say it was a perfect time. 'cause things are different now like it's even harder now What I tell people to do if I was going to get hit by solid like familiar with dead reckoning will. I think it's good to right now. I think things are so tough that people need game together in order to start something and it also good for the music. It's good for everything but four or five hours together under an umbrella and go into war that way you know I actually I mean this is pure experiences come up in conversations that I've had with John Mellencamp and I've asked me to why don't you jump Ryan does and I think it's just? He looks at as a too much work. Not Really And it's a lot more satisfying even for the for the people that do the actual day to day work which is all and denies that you make a little move in an independent thing and it's a big thing it's a it's very satisfying to everybody. Do you know what you're and we've had a Lotta a whole lot of helping. Novoye see particularly from the from the media. You know everybody was really behind one hundred percent for the get-go when I decided to go into You've got a lot of Indiana connections. You assure got a guy right now from Blue Jason Wilber and he came David Steel Got Jason. When David went with Steve Earle and I got both of them from Larry Crane so I the Mendieta connection and then John Mellencamp but I just go up there around the mid eighties done. It was just before I started. Were maybe I just started it and go up there? Sa- John and I could write something and just hang out you know. And he introduced me to a lot of people around there and Larry's not with you now right as a Larry. Crabb Larry. Matter of fact Larry's taken he's Kinda abstained from the music business group out a year. He's gone out with a race car driver really. Yeah how man. I had no that who who is at the show and produce him and get him and Eddie plays and you had the role in the mellencamp movie to right throughout the song and yeah and stuff. So yeah it's just it's weird here in Indiana connection all over the place. I was reading up some of the things. You're press kit which are cut interesting and one of the things you're saying there.
