"Casino the John Wayne Cancer Institute and the national cowboy and western heritage museum right here in the great state of Oklahoma along with the Oklahoma City zoo Jason thanks for coming on the cliff Davis show man no problem thanks for having me it's great to have you here I'm excited to be here tell us a little bit about how you got interested in sports became a sooner and how all that came about you know I grew up in Tuttle Oklahoma K. newer titles yeah okay but you know there wasn't a whole lot to do and total and a lot of farm land it's definitely grown since I was a kid but a lot of farmland not a whole lot to do so he really had that you were either a farmer are you play sports and so we didn't own a farm and I thought I played sports and in another reason as I got older I had quit baseball one summer I didn't quit I just didn't play but dad made me work every single day and so the next summer I was like you know what if I play baseball I don't have to work as much how to get out of it yeah so you know that that's kind of how started start with baseball started baseball really young and then started football and then eventually played basketball as well but I love growing up in total in a small town atmosphere great people you know is it in the movies you see on TV about the Friday night lights and stuff that's total you know the the place just down Friday night so grown up there and and seen that and I I want to there's one thing I want to do is you know play football yeah so when did the the coaches start to see some talent in you when did you look inwardly and go Hey I might have something here I might be I might be extra special or have an extraordinary talent you know I actually I played running back up until I was in eighth grade and so the quarterback part we always through like a halfback pass but I was the you know the the half back so they would teach me the ball and then I would throw it and so the the high school football coach at the time coach Coons he will watch the seventh and eighth graders play out on Thursday nights well after my seventh grade year the coach I light you know came in for the eighth grade football season and the coach said Hey I've been told that you're the quarterback I said I never played quarterback and they said well I've been told by the high school coach you're going to be the quarterback and so I said okay and you can't argue with that and so that that's kind of where the I think at that point was the time that I realize that maybe someone else all something yeah you know that I didn't and you know he always from that point forward even after my eighth grade year at went to the high school team camp but I wasn't even a freshman yet right I was the one with the high school team and was the second string quarterback for the high school and so at that point that's when I kind of like you know what you know coach can seize a lot in me when it comes to the football side of things and and a quarterback so I just kind of took it and ran it from there so the lights started to go off when did you when did the scouts find you when did you start getting recognized by colleges and how and how did that feel well actually my first college letter I ever got was for basketball was it okay yeah I I got a letter from Stanford for basketball and that was my at the end of my freshman year they just sent a letter you know congratulating me on that freshman year you know did blah blah blah stuff and but then my sophomore year the letters started pouring in just a a in that in in recruiting and things are different now because of social media but back then they sent you letters to show their interest and so you would get I mean I would have ten letters a day and that the teachers would bring it into the classroom and you know as a young kid you're like the teacher walking with this big stack of letters on your life yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah so yeah those are for me so that that was it kind of started then but it really picked up my junior year after my junior football season coaches started coming to the school head coach is coming to my basketball games and baseball games and and you always knew that they weren't from total they Butch Davis said at that time he was the head coach at Miami the hurricanes and he shows up to one of my basketball games in a limo and then not only as a lit he's in a three piece suit in total America and everyone knew he wasn't from there but they still they they all stood out like sore thumbs yeah something's going on yeah yeah so that you know ever that would be the talk of the the town for the next couple days so but that's when it really started my junior year than my senior year I I there was a coach at the school every other day you know and I've said and talk with them back then they could take a lunch and stuff so you know coach Gundy which is still at user he was very persistent yeah always coming to see me always take me to lunch so but it was a fun experience what what what what how did your parents handle it I mean how and how involved with day they they were involved but my family and as you know dad was always kind of like you you need some help let us know yeah but otherwise handle it on your own that you manage yeah that's good and so that's kind of what I did it there was only one point in time that I kind of got frustrated with it and I got tired of the phone calls you get home from school or football practice or basketball practice and then there would be a list of phone calls to return you know from coach coaches and I always felt like you didn't return a night maybe they thought maybe your interest yeah so I've always returned all of them and it just got to the point where like you kind of work you're missing out on everything else you know all your buddies are going out to the edge of the river you know and but you're sitting here making these phone calls back so that's the only time I got frustrated with it but it was it was a great experience just that everything involved with it the you feel like a king yeah right right so moving forward what was what was the the trigger what was the decision maker to choose the university of Oklahoma what happened what was that so my first trip I took to Miami first time I'd ever been on an airplane first time you know yeah first time I ever really been out of state now I've been to Texas and Missouri I mean the bordering states but I'd never been Miami you know or any place like that so that was my first trip and I will tell you I was sold the campus is ten minutes from South Beach I mean it's just an amazing experience and then you're also talking about the Miami hurricanes that you know when I growing up they they have some really good teams and so I just to let him know they were interested in take that trip I was sold like that that was where I was headed I've actually started wearing the Miami hat and the head of Miami shirt that I wore I never I never committed to them but I told the coach like Hey this is the spot you know so far yeah so that was where I was headed and in fact at that time up until yes that was November when I took that trip you had not restarted recruiting me because they had a different coach they ran a different kind of offense that I really didn't fit in and so they never really recruited me now keep in mind I grew up a sooner fan dad always listen to the on the radio or watch on TV just as part of the house you know so I grew up a sooner fan so it's kind of disappointing they weren't recruiting me because I was twenty minutes away did you feel overlooked a little bit based on their performance now because they were you know that was part of that downed slump that we had yeah you know so I I really didn't and then come January I'll never forget this is I was at school and had the TV was on and one of my coaches classes coach stoops is certain there internet they're introduced him as the head football coach and I was like man that's cool he came from Florida probably gonna throw the ball a lot started things started and then I had basketball practice that afternoon I got home from basketball practice and mom said Hey there's a new coach that call that I haven't heard his name Bob stoops a city called she said yes well I'm calling because I called him back right away and he said he said Hey and kind of light on the recruiting trail that you're in our back door we'd love to have you know some Oklahoma kids here at Oklahoma and I'd like to come visit with you sometime and I said well we can do that you had to felt ten feet tall L. as in some is cliff Davis with Jason white two thousand three Heisman Trophy

there in fifteen minute intervals so it's not a long wait we started eight thirty in the morning and then we take slots until three thirty so you've got all that time to come in and pick your time and

K. Y. W. K. Y. television this was about her favorite photograph of him a and she was just thrilled that was on the cover of the book I would just I would have to absolutely agree you know people sometimes in the business they don't understand they'll hire you for something and and I do all kinds of different media projects along the bottom of the people to do too they don't understand that you know if you tell them that we're gonna do a photo shoot well you know what you just come out and it's just gonna take a couple seconds no it's going to take a couple hours are going to shoot about five hundred to a thousand you know picks and we're gonna roll and we might find one or two or three that we like this is golden where if you found that absolutely golden beautiful I think one of the things we have probably fifteen hundred plus photographs from W. K. Y. radio W. K. Y. television and the W. K. Y. collection of the Oklahoma history center and I think a part of the reason for that was healed the Oklahoma so they were always sending photographers the Oklahoman down to take pictures of your dad to take pictures of Danny to take pictures of of of of of don Wallace who ever and so they're just tons of photographs of all the different people who worked at W. K. Y. radio W. K. Y. television and then when they in nineteen fifty one when they broke ground on the building out on Britain road there are a number literally a hundred or more photographs of that building under construction it was funny is to look at those photos that were taken at a distance Britain road was a gravel road back then about the middle of the country but he owned that entire section from highway seventy seven down to Kelly from Britain south the Wilshire he owned that entire section so that was also overhead is dairy farm he had a dairy farm back in the thirties and forties of his doctor had told me needed to get out get some exercise and things like that so he had a Gaylor Guernsey farms was out there he had his dairy cattle and that he had the Derry really process the milk I'm I'm fortunate I have three glass of milk bottles from that time I had a half gallon bottle and a couple of pork got a court jars there were milk jars of say **** Guernsey farm had the logo on it so how did not did not know that and then one other quick story too was he also had a horse farm a ranch with horses it was west of Oklahoma City were Galardi is today that was originally were he kept his horses wow but he'd grown up it was real growing up he was born on a farm and and eastern Kansas and then they had moved to Colorado and was that working in coal miner not a coal mine but a mind silver gold something in Colorado so largely he had grown up in rural America well you know in the dead came from from a farm in vice side yeah honestly I'm it without a penny yeah I gladly any exact and a lot of us did a lot that you know that's one thing I need a swift John Wayne's granddaughter when we have our on we're talking and we do a lot of things together the one thing that she says the stands out about Oklahoma she knew in the family knew and John Wayne knew how hard it was to make a go of it here in Oklahoma yes what an easy yes and the people that hunker down and stayed worked their **** off to make this city work and the other thing about that we used to talk about this at the Oklahoma history center when we were doing tours was it's our Oklahoma heritage that the way we came to Oklahoma the way our families came to Oklahoma what they had to go through when they came here and how successful they be game became and their families became successful because of all the hard work that they had to go through to get to whatever field of endeavor they were in I think about Tom Stafford mastered all sure his mother came to Oklahoma in the back of a covered wagon right and settled in Weatherford and she watched her son grow up and watched her son fly in space a lady who came here in the back of a covered wagon about that right right just incredible my grandmother on dad's side eva eva she could just look at you a new new you're in big trouble and she came over in a covered wagon yeah I'm a I'm a Greek side of my family they post a lot pollicis whether they were pre no can't settle in Oklahoma or not and have had a hard go of it they came over on the boat and went through Ellis Island and made from Chicago to hear because they heard there was land how that that we need to have and he wound up a a dry cleaners that had the first chain dry cleaners downtown couldn't speak a lick of English yeah great great man you know yeah so anyway not to get off on all of that but everybody that's you know from the great state of Oklahoma and three four five generations deep Mike Morgan talks about all the time on television yes so proud you know a being from here and and being a generational you know person that you know that has had has a lot of family the that was here before him and I'm I'm the same way and over just a little bit prouder with your dad did two things we're talking about broadcasting television read you will get to that shows on script did that did two things I was real proud of he went off to Korea and was a recipient of the bronze star so so so I think he's a national hero yeah okay he fought for our country absolutely blob a lot of people split or tried to get out of the deal he went and fought and did it he comes back here creates the foreman Scotty show yeah eight Rick looked on Google it look it up but you know I'm I'm I have a whole lot of time to sit and talk about about did to really great things for this country and for Oklahoma so did a lot of other people in our daily Williams and you know will this markets just chock full of a lot of talented people that really you don't care about their state and cared about their jobs and wanted to build this thing called radio and television you know here we are sitting talking about a book that you wrote and it's just absolutely I get chills it's fantastic.

And you guys were there to help in a bunch of different ways. I think that's great. It's awful. It's scary. And we do we have, you know, resources for people, you know, the first step is defining out about what you have. And, and we have resources for people to find out more about what they have, and get in touch with doctors and we train doctors I've made to be surgical, oncologists, which is fabulous. We have a few hometown, Oklahoma hometown. Yes.

What was your favorite experience with him growing up that you can remember that was movie related, which movie and what was your favorite experience? I get that question all the time, ask her about her experience on a movie set on movie set. So my favorite movie set experience was we I was on the set of the hill fighters. Okay. And we were, and it was just it wasn't like in one of those great fire scenes or anything. It was on the set where we were with VERA miles and Tim Hutton, and Katharine Ross and just had a huge crush on Jim. So of course, you know, I was bringing Jim Hutton coffee, every five seconds. We'll get out every time break happened. I was bringing poppy, my grandfather turns around visit this man is going to be in the bathroom for the rest of the night peeing. We'll not leave him alone. That's great had the biggest crush on him. And of course, has at Ross absolutely beautiful, and but that, you know, I just loved it, and it was, it was always a thrill, because everybody was so nice. And, you know, of course, my grandfather was always, like, don't make a peep. You'll cost everybody million dollars. Don't disturb the other actors don't mess with the set. Quiet. Everybody freeze your mouse. So it was always fun and exciting. You know that's really go. I saw on Facebook that Ethan said that he allowed a lot of time for you guys to talk to him. All what he was inbetween rehearsing lines. But there were two roles one don't touch the camera and to don't get in the line of sight. That's right. Really cool. It's been an absolute pleasure having you out here in person and on the show. So happy, I could spend your heart they with appreciate the presence, and the gifts and the time that we spent together with awesome out in Hollywood and doing Musso and Frank.

So go see Dustin loyal at discount garage door. We appreciate him being a sponsor. Okay. Our guest today, a pretty special, they are in the field of real estate in that business, if you will of that ilk. David Patrick is EDP sales manager business development representing Chicago title. I believe working with corporate real estate professionals lenders builders buyer sellers attorneys and commercial and then also across from me is Kathleen forced, she's with metro brokers of Oklahoma twenty years experience. With over. A billion in real estate volume sold. I guess they just don't hand those out two chimps. Right. You've done a pretty good job. Kathleen. The possibility. And David, you just had a nice little event and appreciation party out there. Louise the other night, and yet a great turnout, so you're doing something right? Absolutely. It was good to see. Yeah. Likewise. Good to hook up. Tell us a little bit about a little bit more about Chicago title your role and how you're helping the great state of Oklahoma. I, I know that it feels like to me were coming out of this five ten year slump, and I know people in the business. And, and when I talked to them, they really feel like Oklahoma City and Oklahoma in general is becoming a hotbed for property, acquisition, and our economy, strong and I, I really do. I think we were rebounding, and we're recovering nicely. There's two areas there's eight or nine ten and that, you know, national recession thing, and then we had a Dipsy doo back in sixteen when oil kind of froze up, but I really think we're airborne, and on our way. Would you agree with those thoughts? There's no doubt about it. Are. Our economy right now strove we're seeing a large influx about a state people come into Oklahoma. Both residential and commercial, you know, I it's, it's a fun place to be in real estate in my side. I'm not in the same side as Kathleen, but I get to see at all. And I'm the last step in that long line, the real estate transaction. It's an interesting side, it's really fun. What, what all does Chicago title do, and what is your thirty second commercial? Why are you better than everybody else? Well, I'm only. I'm not any worse or any better. Who dictates how good I am or the people like Kathleen and others that do it. She do how they choose us. We measure ourselves very similar to TV radio with market share. I pull marks. That's my job is to make sure I know where we are every minute of every day. I don't wanna sound braggadocious, but it is a point of pride. We have gone in less seven years from sixteen and a half percent. Market share in Oklahoma county pulled pool report last week that showed us at thirty seven point three percent. All filings in Oklahoma county strong have closed with Chicago title so it's point bride. So, so what, what do you commend that to? What do you what do you pin that to what, what are, what are the different elements that represent that growth? What do you? What do you think that might be? It's our people there. There's no doubt about it. Our frontline people, I would call them are escrow, people, people that, that face are realtors, like Kathleen, and others their service levels there. Their ability to care about the consumers that we all serve. It's, it's interesting, I, I was at another company for nine years. I came here seven years ago to Chicago title. And when I made that move, you know, be as intimidating as it was. I, I immediately saw a difference in the people and the ability to work out work, I should say the competition care about the consumer do whatever it takes it. It's, it's amazing. So when someone is in the process, and I've done this many time when someone is in the process of buying a home, the end game is closing. How do you all smooth out that process? I know communication is one but two there's all these little prick lease that can lock up pop up. How do you guys handle that and become more proficient than the other guy because your growth represents? Right. It's going back to the people and having the, the knowledge of being two steps ahead of everybody in the transaction. You know, when I think about our closer specifically on the commercial side, and the residential side, their experience of every transaction and knowing what's coming, or even more important knowing what's not there to give everybody in the transaction, the heads up. We need this. We need to make sure this is in the file before we get to the table, making sure you're always ahead of the game. It makes a difference being the last step in a long transaction be at commercial residential. You don't ever want. That last step to be a hiccup, you want it to be a positive experience that, that shines the light on the service industry, people, the realtors lenders and at the end of the day, if the consumer walks away with a smile on their face. We've we've all one and done our jobs. So, so what's the craziest thing that you've ever seen? I mean, you've been in this a long time here have and you always hear these stories about who were getting ready to close and a cat jump through the window or something. What's the craziest story that you've ever seen? And how did you guys approach it and fix it people like this kind of stuff? I, I've actually seen a fistfight. There are reasons why we had to put no guns. Oh, I see. No firearms, you don't ever wanna firearms in, in, in a tense closing. I remember one transaction that there was an explanation of bullet holes in a wall, and there's long story behind that one but, you know, you do you, do you hear crazy crazy things. But you also see some wonderful things when you when you are able to experience young people buying the first on the nervousness in Kathleen has has worked with these people a lot. But when you see that excitement in their eyes and they get done. They signed their documents they get their, their keys. You know, the just the sheer sense of accomplishment of they call it the American dream, right? Being able to buy that house in start your life. You know, independent, it's pretty cool. I remember my first car being approved for my first car, and that was that was quite of a feeling of elation. But you're right. When you buy your. Your first home and everything said and done. And you get that key. And you walk in. How you doing? Maybe it's not maybe it's not exactly filled with furniture yet. And maybe it's not doesn't exactly look like a home. But you walk in and you're like, wow, this is mine. Somebody entrusted me somebody gave me the opportunity to have something this nice. It's quite a feeling and it's a neat thing. So I mean on that side of the business, you get a lot of joy from that. I would say, yeah, yeah. It's really, it's really insightful to see, you know how the people react on the other side of that. You know, there's sometimes there's some bad situations divorces and things like that just tough working through those transactions it goes back to two people at Kathleen, you know, once the deal comes to us. How the realtors and the lenders have handled that transaction coming to, to the closing table. It really makes a huge difference. And, you know, when you hear numbers like sold in the billions right, people like that they're trusted with people's livelihoods, and that's where I got a gift, something, like Kathleen, a ton of credit because you don't reach those numbers without total trust and inexperience of people referring, you back give you give you a little bit of insight on some numbers, if I told you that the average income of a real estate agent was under forty thousand a year. Would that surprise. You would totally would that's the average right now of every real estate agent across the country. Thirty nine thousand dollars a year and Kathleen sitting the Bill. Making eighty nine thousand seven. What's going on over the white, and they're a book out yet? Well so, so Kathleen, and we're gonna we're gonna take a break here into sex won't get totally into. But Kathleen, so when you work with Chicago, title, and other closing companies, and you're in the business, and you're out and about, and you're working with people what some of your philosophy. I mean what's, what is your recipe for success? What do you tell people? Right now, focus on the piggyback off of what he said about Chicago title, people don't understand that. We're not one entity like on an airplane. You'll have a pilot, you'll have a flight attendant. You know, there's, there's different components of the transaction. But so many times the consumer just thinks that the.

And we last left off you basically need were saying that were some parallels between you and Hitchcock's granddaughter. And you realize that John Wayne your grandfather was extremely special when he he won the award. Kademi kademi award. Right. Right. So what was that? Like, I mean is that kinda like you you realize that, hey, I've got something really special here. Well, you know, I think yeah. I mean, I think he he was he was he was amazing and more than just being famous actor. I realized that people looked up to him for more than just that people really adored him. I mean, they they look up to him and for more than being just an actor. They looked at him for being a symbol of America. And that's that's when I realized that I mean. When I went to college and they're using him as an adjective, that's when I realized that he would more than just an actor. You know, when when they used him as a, you know, they they went in like, John, Wayne, you know, when they when people started using him in that way. Then I realized that he was more important than just to you know, an actor. Yeah. Certainly wasn't surly wasn't still has turned the corner just a little bit here. You know, cancers the horrible thing, and everybody's known someone or might be going through it. It's it's an awful horrible thing. And I know here. In the if you're if you have anything to do with ranching up outdoors. The no Anoma skin cancers. And then you're going to be touched by it with prostate cancer at some point in your life colon cancer on the rise with with people under the age of thirty now. You know, it's getting to be so prevalent. It's it's like heart disease. In the sixties and seventies. You know, it's just getting so prevalent, and you know, my grandfather in the sixties had lung cancer was going to ask you about it his his battle with it. And then how that changed now when he had. So when you worked for the studios, you had to be insured every and so you went in for a physical, and he'd gone in for his usual yearly physical and they found a spot on his lung. So they went in. Cancer and removed three quarters of his lung and most most people in that day and age would have just gone on the Mary way, not set of saying because they wanted to be re insured. And but my grandfather didn't he he kind of coined the term the big c-. He came out. He spoke about it. Because he didn't want people to keep smoking. He wanted people to know that smoking caused cancer. And so, you know, he decided to use his cancer to try and stop people from smoking. So, you know, even in the sixties, you know, he was he was trying to stop people from getting cancer. And so, you know in this in seventy eight. When they when he was. He couldn't he was having trouble swallowing, and they couldn't figure out what it was. So they didn't exploratory surgery, and they found that he had cancer stomach cancer a weird pancake like stomach cancer that couldn't be seen on a regular x Ray. So when they thought they knew it was that was it. You know, it was the end for him. So. He went to UCLA where they had a lot of clinical trials going on. And he said he asked them to use him as a Guinea pig. You know, trying go ahead. Try try try me out if it doesn't work at least, you know, maybe it'll work for somebody else. You know? So even in his final days he was. Being strong and using asking the doctors to use him did it. So, you know. To me that was just an amazing legacy for us. You know? Well, absolutely. I mean that shows the content of his character. And what a beautiful thing just shows how real and true and strong. He was not only as the movie star. But as just a man saying, hey, I've got this. And maybe I can help other people and that kind of transcends today. Now, you served you served as the president of the zilla for quite some time. And you're Patrick Wayne is the chairman of the board at the John Wayne Cancer Institute has your family always been real involved with orgnisations. Right. So when so my grandfather when he was dying asked, my uncle, Michael who has since passed away who. His image in this after he died to find a cure for cancer. So whenever you see John Wayne mug or. Anything? Any kind of a t-shirt that that has been authorized by Wayne enterprises that portion of that money goes to the John Wayne Cancer Foundation where we? That we use we use that money to fund the John Wayne Cancer Institute, which is research institute. That we have their few things that have come from our institute. But. It was the doctors that treated my grandfather. Dr Morton Donald Morton at from UCLA that started the German Cancer Institute. And we get the sentinel node biopsy for melanoma and breast surgery that it's become the standard of care. So when you have a either one of those cancers, they do this particular biopsy, and they did that over thirty five years ago. So we developed about there, and we also developed. We began the development of immunotherapy so using your own cancer cells to fight cancer. So we we have been quite a bit with our little research institute. I wouldn't I wouldn't call it a little hall. I'd got a really cool thing. Really big thing that helps people. Yes. I mean, I would too. Absolutely. And we are you know, we continue we continue to do this. And the Hillary itself was started by two grateful patience of Dr Morton, these two ladies got a group of friends together about thirty years ago. And you know, these gals to. They've raised over twenty million dollars. And you know, actually a lot of them have passed away but their daughters and granddaughters are now on the board. So. In the sponsor your question about the family. Yes, we're still very very much involved. Not only financially, but man hours. We are all we do what we can at this point. I can tell you that. My cousins are all involved either. You know, we do several different runs a year. There's like marathons that were beneficiaries for. And I have a lot of very healthy wonderful cousins that are that run in these marathons and form teams for different for the Orange County marathon. And and there's another marathon in Dallas. That we are benefits beneficieries for and you know, everybody has what they can. And we are still very much involved because people like to see us there. They don't want us to not be involved anymore. So we're still there Patrick is the CEO at the hospital. I I'm on the board at the auxiliary, which is the fundraising arm their eastern runs. John Wayne enterprises, and is the head of the foundation has rich cycle, and she does a huge fundraiser every year. It's called greedy up.

And we also wanna stop down for a second. Thank I heart radio for believing in us, entrusting us and making all of this happen and possible. So we thank you very much. Speaking of sponsorships. Really taken back by this Mike at the shows come a long way, and we'd love everybody. We live all of our sponsors. And we really do appreciate of the believers out there and how the show is growing at such a rapid rate. But we've got the John Wayne Cancer Institute now on as a sponsor, we've got the national cowboy in western heritage museum on now as a sponsor, and we've got the Oklahoma City zoo the zoo trust out there is on. Now, a sponsor how about that three major gets as we say some big gets. So we're humble, and we really do appreciate them listening. And we appreciate being a part in helping them. We're going to do a lot of different things with these folks. And and make people more aware of what they do and all the great things that they do for the great state of Oklahoma and also nationally. So we thanked him so much sods covering the Oklahoma memorial marathon, which is super important to the great state of home. He's on location down there. So he's not in studio. But we appreciate I'm going out and do. Everything that he does for this. Great. I talked to him earlier in the week. And he's got to go down there and set things up mature he's good to go because he's got to be down there. Brighton. Early at daybreak you because everybody's gonna show up, and you know, and in the marathon is in early morning hours. So he's very busy for a very good reason for obviously, obviously a great cause. Okay. So we're here on our six month anniversary, and I was lucky enough to meet a a swift. John Wayne's granddaughter. And I I wish I could tell you some grandiose story about how through her travels and the iheart radio network and KT. Okay. And maybe some of my past history and dad's past history being in radio and television with the form and Scotty show that somehow our families crossed and we've been friends forever. And it's this great thing. And we help each other. I I wish I could tell you a nice robust story like that. But the truth is we met in a bar. Didn't we need? That's right. Into a bar. So and I'll be. Forever. Yeah. I'll be brief on this. But Anita was in town for of the museums awards about three weeks ago, and I run into her over at the Waterford. And we start chatting it up, and I tell her a little bit about my background. And then she drops on me that she's John Wayne granddaughter. I was just kind of speechless. And so from there forward, it was like, hey, you know, let's let's see if we can do some business together and help each other, and she has just been so warm so kind so giving in so welcoming with the cliff Davis show and myself and my craft and sharing her family's lineage and heritage, and obviously, you know, John Wayne being a huge, huge global movie star representing the essence of the western movie. I mean, he's the quintessential essence of what the western is. And so I was invited out to the museum and even got to sit with the family and Anita. Thank you so much. I humbly accepted that invite and it was so neat. Well, we were very happy to have you. I sit on the board of the national western Harry. On. Doing our annual western heritage awards, and it does all honor people who have made their Mark in the west and preserving the culture of the west, and I have been representing my family there for many years. So I was wonderful. It was to me. That struggles people have gone through several in the west. And and and the culture the people in hard times that they faced and settling the west so. You know, it's you know, that the culture of the people that truth the values that they? Cherish in trying to preserve. So we I think definitely formed a bond and definitely had a great time at the event. And I enjoy getting to see that in easy and up close and personal. It was absolutely fantastic. It was one of the greatest moments. I don't want this to sound cheesy in my life sitting with you and your family and Patrick. Listening to Kevin Costner and REBA mcentire. I really was I was I was pinching myself. Well, you know, I definitely every time. I meet people like Kevin Costner, and we the knack entire they definitely bring me back to back to the ground floor. You know, they're they they're amazing people with amazing stories, and you know, they really take you down to just real people. I mean, they're just they're amazing. And they they're just real solid. People say I'm glad you had the same feeling that I get when I go in there. So we had a good time with you. It was a good time. And again, I thank you for being a part. It was very nice. I am from the great state of Oklahoma fourth generation, I love Oklahoma. I understand Oklahoma. I'm proud of Oklahoma. And I wouldn't I wouldn't rather be doing this broadcast from anywhere in the world. But right here from Oklahoma City, representing Oklahoma. But also, I like the idea that the show is, you know, national, and it's global and we can help people in touch people and hopefully get a great message out. So it's it really is. It's a great thing for the great state of Oklahoma and meeting you and and being part of all of the different things that you have going on now in your sponsor on the cliff Davis show, but let's get to some of the business of parts of what you guys do. And the truth is Anita sent me a questionnaire, and I kind of liked that she's the first guest who's ever taken the time to do that. So we're going to kind of follow this this questionnaire and ad lib a little bit. But to the first question is. What was your relationship like with your grandfather? I think that people will find that interesting. What how did that work? So I'm the oldest grandchild. So I was lucky enough to have Twenty-one fabulous years with him before he has to way and he guessing Italy valued his family time. So when he wasn't working he spent time with his family, and he had seven children twenty seven grandchildren. He now has twenty eight great, grandchildren and three great great grandchildren while. Yeah. Now, I see when he passed away. He probably had twenty grand twenty grand children. You know, he had three children who were one was my two years older than me and the other two were thirteen seventeen and then older the four older children were, you know, they were had children, you know, as old as his younger kids. So, you know, although there was a disparity in age. He definitely yeah. He was there for his kids. And he was yeah. Have everybody around and he anytime off at with his kids and grandkids. So lucky enough to have spent time with him on set, and you know, he'd like to go on his his boat and go fishing and go to Catalina and up to Lasca to fish. So I think if you ask any of us, they tell you we we got to spend some bit. Quality time, which is amazing. So so so let me ask you this. Now, the John Wayne that we saw on movies all of the great movies. Bryant was was that the same guy offset, and and at that thinks giving dinner table. You can tell in different parts of movies, where he gets Tinder around kids or in certain, you know, the lines enrolls that he's playing all also being able to convert over to the tuft up six foot four brawny western character that we know John Wayne to be, but what was the dynamic. Did you see a little bit of those different parts could could he? So he so he could be he could be could be he could be strong with you guys. But he also could be real tender. Did that did that scare you? It would scare me to death. John Wayne got mad at me. To this day. He was first of all you did not want to disappoint him in any way. Okay. But you, you know, I I don't I don't recall ever seeing him spank anybody or anything like that. I mean, I was pretty much raising eyebrow Accu. I bet you know, or say, what are they doing? I think. Yeah. Nobody want everyone. I remember my mother saying when she was coming down for her engagement party she had on red lipstick. And he said get back upstairs and take that lipstick off, you know, here. She is eighteen years old coming down, you know, for her engagement party and he's telling her to take lipstick off hard. I I'd I'd I already like it. How would you like it? You know, the one thing you could always count on what he always had a candy bar so hidden somewhere that he would be handing out for that. You know? I mean, he was that guy if you're crying in a in a store, he was all I to this day here. People people come up to me and tell me I was in. I was in a thrifty, and I was crying and he bought he bought me an ice cream cone, you know, because I was crying. And you know, my mother was just taking it home to give me dinner. But he he decides cream cone, you know, something's always doing stuff like that. You know, he was always you. He was a soft touch for sure. But he could definitely be, you know, dad or grandad, you know, you couldn't get away with much. So you were so did. So did you did did you ever get him in a low cool, calm of voice, but stern. Maybe you're in trouble for something at him. Go anita. Well. Let me just say the boys in our family, probably got that a little more than girls. I got you several times day, we're doing a couple of bad little fad. They think that they probably got that voice. A little more than than I did. So that you know, he was great. You know, we could go down and stay with them at the beach at his house at the beach. And and you know, he'd be up making us breakfast in the morning. So a great guy just a lot of fun. And and just a regular guy a regular grandfather. You know, he was really really wonderful that way up about what age because I can tell you what it was for me with with dad locally knows form and Scotty. But at what age did you start to realize that you were different? And that he he was different. And that he was this thing this huge thing. And what was that like as you started to grow older? Realize who he was and what he was doing at what age were you? Well, you know, my. From the time. We were very little. We were told, you know, we don't talk about it. We don't tell people, you know, who he who we are number one. And and you're you're nobody special basically, I'm no, I'm nobody special special. But I'm not, you know, but I I need to really behaved because if I do something, you know, it's his reputation that's gonna be ruined. Because you know, I'm the one my name may be in the paper. But it's gonna be, you know, Anita granddaughter of John Wayne. So, you know, I'm not the only one getting in trouble. He's gonna get his reputations. Could it be ruined? Because at me. So, you know, for all my time growing up, you know, it was like don't get in trouble. Because you know, it's not your name. That's gonna end up in the paper. It's his name. So, you know, the whole time I had friends that didn't even know I was related to him. Until you know,.
