System that the board of supervisors out there was trying to roll out and youtube banned the video at censored the video and gave him a strike is now facing his is on the verge of earning third strike in a permanent ban since then john has moved on to start covering critical race theory. Which is this idea that race has to be the prism that every discipline in school has to be taught through everything from social studies mathematics to music. John talks about how there are music teachers that he's interviewed who say there are debates going on and music departments in schools all across the country over whether the national anthem should be taught should be played in school and so john has taken upon himself.

"Again the crazy world we're living in. Maybe. It's smart that they just do snare drums, but I hope that it really grows to be something more you know and I would love to see some some great tremor. There's so many amazing drummers. Out in the world right now, I would hope that maybe one of the they could be the new gene Krupa so guy clay bring bring it back and represented and. All these brands there's there's been I mean not to keep talking about Ludwig. But there's so many ups and downs in that company. His story that is just like they're gone now. They're back now other WFL now they're back there. It's like. It's just you know you. You never count them fully out and I think the and. Honestly think thank goodness because. It's nice to have. Not Everybody is going to be. Ninety by only eight drums. I endorse Sir Peter Drums I love him, but there's you know there's my. Yourself or what am I other drummer friends? They might like the sonnet Ludwig or slinging. We need to have all those different companies you do. Yeah, you know really, but it's. Yet it's. It's A. It's it's a tough market like anything cars Alma Ford. Man I'm a Chevy Fair Fair enough. But I hope that I hope that they can. Keep going, you know. It's like. It's crazy because I, don't know why just single mom all these other companies like tricks in vox where they were doing. He's creating ideas well. Maybe it's time you know what I mean. Maybe it's time for another crazy idea and something spur interest in in the signal in brand, but. I I guess it could be in a Lotta ways seen as a conflict of interest in my case but I love the story. I love the brand. Even I endorse another company. I love its domestic. You know and. The excitement you know. My Dad had all the drum catalogs when I was growing up I would sit there and you know how you. Look at all these catalogues in. The how the drums are set up. First of all.

"That was the top of the line, and then all the artists customers. Artists Custom and classic, if it was wrapped with white marine for all these different, but they had a sound. And then he went to the you know the the the Pearl type of Tom Mounting system and all that, but essentially they stuck to same formula same logs same floor Tom Brackets. In and of course. You know there was always changing going on in his symbol stands and and throwing. pedals that was always a always a concert I notice, you know. But trying to figure it out it. Because I think as a as a person who's looking out of now. You'd think like a ninety slayer land. You know now I don't want that, and it's actually kind of a parallel that I heard about like speed king pedals where where Vincent who's been on the show, said like no the nineties speed kings were awesome like they were great. They're more reliable they're. They're more this and that so it being from the nineties doesn't make it bad. I mean just right now. Right what you're saying. Yeah well, and it's just it happens to be I think who is who is running the show you know and and the decisions they were making. And again I praised buzz king, because he and I had the opportunity to talk to him a number of times and I, just told them I said you know there was something about those drums, and he would just kind of laugh the Keanu It really put the I really believe that you know He. He was running the show and he puts time in to make those things right. Really, he did a lot of special things with slinging et time. Unfortunately the carpet got pulled from under him. You with Frederick Selling. You know an that really screwed a lot of things up. Can you explain? What actually that that last bit there with Gibson and in this and Fred Gretch bean involved what actually happened at the end? Well as far as I know the story is, is again a people. I could probably told me that I. Don't have it all right, but as far as I know the story. Is that Frederick Soul? And I think that. As far as I'm aware of buzz and everybody else. They didn't even realize what was happening and it was just kind of like. Yeah, it's done. They sold it to Gibson. and. We saw a lot. Of course maybe. We saw it on Ebay. You know a lot of. A lot of all stock just. went out to different places. You know people bought it, and then he just. Literally moved on Gibson and unfortunately we saw music, Yo and different things like that. There was all this excess excess stock. But. Competence has got Kinda pulled from underneath all those people at that time Enslin, and that's that's a bummer, and then what happened we saw sterling goes to Gibson..

"I really believe that can I ask him one question about the seventy s Yeah, obviously it, you know, and when through regular drums, you know regular sizes. Everything was great deal from across in your collecting the slinger Lynn Phantom, the acrylic. Kits, have you ever? I that's what I was saying earlier, I know they I've never come across one. I've never seen one. But as we know they did. They did mess around with that, but no I've never seen any of those. Super Rare. I, mean you just. They didn't listen I'll tell you. They did some really wild stuff that people didn't know about. Documentation of which you know I, have again I have friends that have come across some of this stuff and really wild designs, so they were trying, but. None of the. I've never actually never seen any of that myself. Yeah. I'm just looking on on a Looking on a forum here and it just says I. Don't know if this is true. Because the first thing I'm seeing, says they were. They were there from seventy, two seventy three. An area. There's your answer I, mean you. And I again. I like to consider myself The Acrylic Phantom Kit. Call Right? Yeah, exactly. Yeah, yeah, I mean I'm a fan, but I. and. I had no. I had I never had any motivation. There's. There's an ad that. slinger makes one thing perfectly clear their new acrylic fantastic. Right and of course you know and like a lot of companies they were you know they were? To try to appeal to who you know to the market, you know these kits that were wrapped in a quarter or yeah. Denham and you know or Just all these different designs. They were always open and willing to do that, but Yeah I think. Would with a Lotta these import kits? That started like in the sixties when he starts seeing that in the seventies and eighties just flooded the market..

"Yeah, you know and I. Mean those people over lead working around the clock. And now if you think about it, too gene now jeans. He's kind of getting to the point where he's slowing down. And Buddy was buddies buddy. As. We all know and he's coming and going. you know in you know really having a brand ambassador I think it was things were changing and I. Think it really was tough for them. You know and through the sixties. into the seventies, it just started. It was. Hard for them kind of. Stay on top of we have when you have Ringo Starr? You know he's a tough one to go against. Yeah. So, but it seemed like I'm All the intricate parts of you know like I say how they were doing the shells, three ply or five ply sounds, but as far as the brand. It seemed like it was kind of it kind of put. It took a little win other sale. You know my opinion and they had their hardware getting sorted out You know of course taking. Know taking ideas from different company Oh, well, let's do something like this or like that. But It seemed like they kind of went in. This is my opinion, but it seemed like they went through kind of an identity crisis there. Once once Ringo the whole late sixties. Seventies, it was like. You know they didn't really get into the whole Fiberglass Drum. They did that, but they really push that. was kind of like they're always. It's an I again. I know a disrespect slamming, so I love, but they seem like they're kind of a day late. Dollar Short on a lot of things. Concept as sixties into the seventies. Eighties they started messing around with. You know like basically cardboard shells and trying to cut costs, because of course we know going back to that whole idea of how the seventies and eighties. We're going through a another financial crisis, and how that affected what materials they were using, and so forth and. Everything was changing so in, and it's funny, because again as a huge fan i. when I started learning about this, I felt bad. I was like. That sucks you know like. Look at these shelves or warping well, that's because a car, essentially like glorified cardboard her fiber. I mean they they. They held true with You know they stuck with the log designs. People weren't using L. are mounts anymore so now you start getting a different designs as far as symbol stands. You know in all the hardware. But the design in at look again going back to that class, he liked. The there's something about those lugs. The radio king logs. In of course design I. You know there's something about it just beautiful. They just look classic art. Deco kind of yeah, yeah, absolutely yeah I love that you know and I think every company kind of went through some periods of time where they were dealing with. Snares trainers, you know it's like that's the one thing that we're always grabbing at in adjusting in. It's never 'cause you know. Of course we're drivers. Nothing's ever right now, and that's the one thing because like buddy rich was he was known for being. He was crazy about a snare drum. Always you know was never right. But snare trainers. They seem to kind of get that right. You know after fifties, but yeah it was it again. It's was. It's too bad for Switzerland knows. In the sixties and seventies, of course into the eighties where they lie I think they again. My opinion is they lost their identity and it was hard to of keep up with the Times. You've got other. More companies coming in here you know..

"What? I'm trying to call these. Sixteen year old kid in I'm trying to call in. We didn't have the Internet. Trying to his drum shops in trying to explain it. These guys in. Yeah, no! Literally, they'd say. Why do you want that? It never worked. To restore my dad's kit, but yeah, so he would just use his regular symbol Stan. That's. Okay again like I hate. You don't want to be negative, but I think a lot of people. A lot of these companies. They had to work out a lot of bugs. Enslin was one of them, but I can tell you. All those drums aside from the stare. Always They had a woody. There was a sound there. You know there was. No is the heads as a tuning. Could you get same son of? Well I don't know I mean because I was asleep. Nut. I'm trying to figure out. Wow, is this is? Arby's lugs from this kit that I found as this chrome, or is it nickel because it's really bright? And why did he use nickel on his kit? When you know and then trying to figure it all out, and it seems like you know even that far back. There wasn't inconsistencies. How they put kids together Do you know what I mean like oh? Yeah, for sure you know like. We can get into the whole. The badge in the serial numbers. Thing which you know that that's an issue that goes across the board as far as always trump companies, yeah! and. This is the thing that we all sit in talk about it. These drum shows well. Wait a minute. This isn't. This isn't really all original well. Yes, it is well. No, it's not because these are two screws. They use it with Tash lugs. You'll. You'll have this conversation. Listen I swear. This came from my uncle or something like that, and then it becomes this. Then you see the sir, rubbing their shouldn't really..

"You know as as history of dry in no matter what company it is, you know as the economy waxes and wanes, you see. You know the screws that are used in our to using softer softer metal, because it's cheap I mean these all these little things are. Let's like for example. Let's we can even talk about the canister thrown. Yeah, you know I know in my case. I'm maybe I'm spoiled now but I? Don't I mean it makes sense for a jobbing drummer in those days to be able to throw all that stuff. Right into a canister thrown and go, you know. Because I. We just throw it into a case and then somebody. They moved out, but as And I am not seen. It I I wasn't. Just hop into this world you know. Quote Unquote Success but. Jobber? Heavily, those coffin, those big coffin trap cases that was that was a pain, so there was a lot of brilliant things because there was so many more choppers. I think you know unfortunately right now. With everything going on, there's there. There's no joggers. Yeah, but. You. Know it it really because it went from drummer being in for example, I can in early nineteen hundreds. Doing theater show so well there was you know you would? You didn't have a bunch of hardware, but it was separated, and all the gear was in a theater. It stayed there. Weren't moving around as much or if you did go to another gig in a theater gear, was already there? I mean there was already equipment there, so that's another thing we're once. He started seeing the drummer in his case because the trap could came together, and now we're moving around jogging. That was one of those things where it's like. Wouldn't it be created if the seat was the case you? It's really I love back, you know. I'm a fan of canister thrones. Of course you know I've I've never? I've never used a canister thrown I've sat. I've played them..

"Radio, King so as far as I understand. Radio King was kind of just a name that was put on a bunch of different things. What what was the time period of Radio Kings? Because as far as I know, it ends in the fifties right right? Well, see now. That's an I can't say for sure but right. They were based. The snare drum. It's actually kind of ironic because I have the you know I bought it on Ebay. It's like the blueprint of the radio King Snare. Drum the Patent Edison in. If I'm not mistaken. I think they were granted that. In it was like if I have it here. I want to say it was it was on my birthday was July eighteenth or seventeenth? In late thirties. But I don't know for enabled. Then they started. They started putting that name on a lot of kits, but Essentially, it started off with the snare drum. I know they were they were. They were putting? You Know My dad's kid. I can say it's a radio king, but is it a? It doesn't say radio king, but in the catalog. But as far as the snare drum, you're right. And I actually I. Highly Recommend you. Pick up! You've never played a radio king, you say I have not no well I'll explain a little bit about what well first off happy birthday early. Coming up, yeah, it's July sixteenth today so. I haven't avoiding. Thinking about it. As. You get older. I. It's not as important but the radio. It's funny. You bring that up and it's such an iconic sound. You know through through history and. It's it's funny. Because a lot of the people that I know and we all talk about this in a community. Of course, it's written on. You can get a good one, and you can get a bad one. They were not consistent in a lot of them were out of round. You know they would go out of own over over over time. And and it was hard to put heads on them because they'd go around. I mean. I hate. I'm not trying to disrespect struggling, but they weren't all. There was some dodds. There were duds I mean. Let Firsthand, but. That sound is iconic again. A Go back and reference that gene crew. you know his his snare sound on the Carnegie Hall Concert. There is something about it just like anything you know. It has a son of its own just like we super phonic or to Dinah Sonic. or even acolytes everybody they all have a character, but yeah, there's something about that, and maybe it's because I have this. I'm biased because I love. You know the Mystique of slinging, but there is something about the radio king. That's just fantastic. Yeah, and it's been mentioned in a few other episodes, but it's just cool to that obviously radio king. It was the era of Radio Beam. King, and you had your Retro Pastor, and it was just that that. You know big and brought and again you know. It's it's it's radio. King went through a lot of..

A. it's the making the kind of show broadcasting on both stations how you doing I'm stressed how are you tonight I'm stressed. stressed out I'm a stress monster today. what I'd like to have as a brandy old fashioned sitting here in the studio that's what I'd like sailing Vance a nice Oktoberfest is it would I think would help me very stressed. very stressed today why am I stressed I wasn't stressed until this morning. real quickly I'll share my stress story here so I'm I'm testifying tomorrow before Congress I'm kinda psyched about it I'm the one who thought wow how cool would this be I was completely looking forward to this I'm just fine for the house committee on on oversight and reform the subcommittee on economics and consumer policy. so. men a congressman Krishnamoorthy of Illinois is the term Democrat in a ranking member on that committee this is Elijah Cummings committee by the way. he is the the general committee is Elijah Cummings committee I'm vaping so I was very that I get to share my story about how I quit smoking by switching to cigars I was very yeah. right. yes finally someone's going to get a little little little dose of the truth here in Congress is they you know have a moral panic about vaping so it was fine I did my testimony rode up yesterday practice did a couple of times in front of my husband made some tweaks you know shot out to friends of mine who are good editors because my biggest challenge was getting my testimony in under five minutes that was my biggest challenge till this morning. till this morning I get an email from mark from our corporate risk managers. who want to copy my testimony. well okay all right I am representing myself I'm not there representing any group don't pay me to go in fact I'm paying my own way and give me a copy of testimony is all of a sudden it got put through the legal structures of our our global company and I'm freaking out well you know can yet can you please make sure to phrase this is what I was like oh oh whatever just now I'm flipped out. yeah. and what is not the company you know anyway it ought to be fun I got I got the green light on it so but now I'm a little bit stressed out some flying out. right after the show is over all right here's is coming up on the program. going to we're gonna talk about. the weekend. inanity. of the climate marches and the demands being made by various people the policy demands that are being made for the bite I guess allegedly serious people democratic presidential candidates and we'll also talk about some of just the. mindless. lunacy that came out of the miles of college students and high school students over the weekend as multiple countries and certainly every state in the United States participated in this climate strike over the weekend so get to that on the program list of the war and she is the front runner now she she's the one to beat it now pay it behooves us to pay very close attention to some of her policy prescriptions. not the least of which is to policy prescriptions one that would potentially create another stock market crash and another that would reduce the value of our retirement savings. this policy proposals this is a woman who only imagines economic policy theoretically but we actually have real world examples of how to live for key policies could destroy our retirement savings my retirement savings my four oh one K. your four oh one K. your IRA whatever it might be. and another that would do double whammy were created a double whammy on it and that would you know potentially be policies that could just because the stock market to tube. we'll talk about that the latest from the Dallas in preliminary hearings in California that virtually nobody's paying attention to some very interesting information has been forthcoming because of the put preliminary hearings member David Gallatin center for medical progress put together videos exposing Planned Parenthood and the trade. of fetal body parts the deliberate manipulation of abortion procedures soul leave to allow companies to pro Q. R. fetal body parts for experimentation in medical research data delegate has been charged with fourteen felonies for quote recording confidential conversations in California. the people who are actually engaged in the trade of fetal body parts of legal trade a fetal body parts are not being prosecuted but David delegate is on trial and is someone who's willing to go to prison for the rest of his life so that the truth comes out let's help them do that on the program today so we'll get to that on the show and hands free driving and I got him if it will start with hands free driving Kevin Nicholson's gonna join me here to kick off the show in the first full segment of the program that real quickly I can dispatch within three driving John sparrows represented Spiro he's a good guy I like him John I like you has authored it is a bipartisan measure a law that would ban. talking on your cell phone in your car without being hands free. right now we've got a hand no hands free tech we have a hands free only texting long and we have got a law that says you can't be talking on your cell phone unless your hands free in a construction zone and represent of Speros would extend the hands free role to all driving then it it makes sense doesn't it sounds like it makes sense it sounds like this will actually reduce distracted driving. there is. zero evidence this will work it has worked no where no where it doesn't work it will I mean I guess it's not that big of a deal because everybody uses hands free for the most part anyway the ones who don't you know if they get a ticket everyone hates them I'm sorry but if you're talking on your cell phone while you're driving in your completely distracted and people notice that they hate you. they want you to crash it's really awful actually so probably won't do much harm this particular law but it is. it will do nothing to improve the condition on Wisconsin roadways there has been so much research done on this question that the conclusions incontrovertible. hands free driving. is it just like non hands free driving when it comes to distracted drivers. it is exactly the same it doesn't matter if you're talking on the phone with your phone stuck to your ear or you're talking on the phone while you're driving and your phone is in some kind of holder somewhere it doesn't matter is not gonna improve the problem with distracted driving it just doesn't. there is so much research on this. this just it did it does defies logic that someone was a with the one thing we really need in Wisconsin is a hands free driving we really don't you're not going to improve but if you know people like it it's probably gonna make people feel good lot of pent up rage out there about distracted drivers we already have a law on the books that bands distracted driving by the way it's never enforced. but Hey. three driving will do hands free driving laws will do nothing nothing. to improve highway safety or road safety will do nothing to reduce distracted driving because the moment you're on the phone be a hands free you're not you're distracted I know it's the most counter intuitive thing because it seems like it should work it just doesn't and there have been I don't even I let me just too many studies to count on this anyway here's what we're gonna do were you to the serious stuff on the program because of course the world is going to end in twelve years I'm a little worried about that right are you we're gonna talk about serious climate policies that Democrats have put forth will also talk a little bit about Elizabeth Warren's determination I think to ruin our ability to live well in retirement that's coming up Kevin Nicholson from no better friend court is going to join the cabin of course a Senate candidates in the past but he's got a new organization called no better friend that's where we're gonna start folks this is Vicky McKenna show.
