Ladies and gentlemen, Luke Hammond, Zach Al Qaeda. John Williams here, bringing you the 1st 2 hours of sports talk. Let's talk about Michigan, Ohio State because that's been the hot topic over the last 24 hours or so. Big 10 Media Day was a couple days ago Monday, almost a week and then This happened. Jim Harbaugh called out Ryan Day. And if you don't know who Ryan Day is, he is the head coach of Ohio State. And this is how it went. It was a complete mess. And the rivalry just got hotter. Zach, which had taken the Ryan Day Jim Harbaugh beef going on here. I mean, it's good that they're you know, like Jim Hart was tryingto entertain. You know some type of competitiveness because it hasn't been that type of competitiveness on the field since he's been the coach. But I mean, I don't know what you greet those statements. You said. Well, this is this. This is the statement he made was What about Ohio State pregnancy with their players on campus in the Said that you cannot practise on on campus with any coaching staff because a covert 19 and this was going on until Friday, and this happened on Monday. So Jim Harbaugh was right in that aspect. But who cares? Because what was it was like a a picture of the linebacker coach with linebackers, linebacker coach. He called him out by name you as well. So a straight bird on his name, Jim Harbaugh. Well, he has going for me is that he is a savage. But he is not getting the victories over Ohio State, which is really what I care about you. A lot of You know, teams in the conference is nobody. They don't care, bro. Like they really know. And I don't know how you're Jim Harbaugh and you get hired for kind of one reason. And you're one reason is to beat Ohio State. I mean, I could I wanted Nati. Of course, I haven't seen one in my lifetime and I mean, that'd be good, but I've also we've seen his Beetle house would like once really that I can remember right we might have done in the early two thousand's, but yeah, I I don't remember you beating Ohio State, So maybe you should get your your coach on the field with the with the air players, so maybe you could try to do what they do it. That's why I took it as I took it like he's just trying to get The Sparks fired how state Michigan robbery because he knows us Michigan fans when it comes out of state are just like you ends up in there like because every year it's every year. I go into the weak and I'm just like man. I can't wait to watch the first quarter of the Michigan Ohio State game before I kick my TV into the wall. Yeah, I mean, it's It's sad, dude, especially it's really sad Do when I go. I mean, I was at the game last year or this last year. I mean, Another blowout and we scored first, and it was loud and then that we missed the P 80 and then from then on out, it was louder on Ohio State first down in the big house than it was when we scored. Like that Defeated. Yeah, You have a defeated mentality. Not all the players on the field that the coaches, the fans, the fans. Yeah, well, here's the context for it. So big Ted Media Day they had a conference call with every head coach in the conference. And Jim Harbaugh out of nowhere, they said. It's out of left field, says Al Washington calls the man by name who's an assistant coach at Ohio State was pictured working with the linebacker's on campus, and this was on Monday. And the NC double A said. We're not gonna have on feel practices until the next Friday. So Jim Harbaugh in that aspect is correct. But here's Ryan Days response how, but I worry about my team and you worry about yours. And that was kind of a low blown kind of Read between the lines there because he says, You can't beat us and then in a team meeting later that day, Ryan Day says, Um, we're gonna hang 100 on them. It's a way to go Jimmy Way and and and that aspect Ryan Day. He's a tool bag. He's holding practices. He knows about him. If he didn't know about it, he's a moron. And he didn't deny the fact that it was going on. So the only needs that they do need to look into this thing. But there's another day. Who cares? Really? Because even at that, like, what's the worst that say that insane goes, this is Oh, yeah, they were holding practices like where they're going to do. They're going. They're going to be like Wow. Slept on the wrist of house. They we've already sanctioned. You want? That's what I think That's what the harbor was trying to do. He knows the last time we beat him. They were sanctioned up. He should get somewhere. Sanctions on. So if you come back with another, don't get that. Get that little contract decision. Yeah, well, I got some stats..

"Adjustments will obviously be based on, have how marketing performing, but right now, we're actually buying relatively small. So. One other market that's been in view has been repo and what's been interesting, and maybe not as highlighted as the corporate credit facilities is the fact that repo balances from the Fed Balance Sheet. A went down zero as July eighth based on the most recent ballot sheet print from the board I. Guess I'm wondering there has been concerned as we saw not even just from Kobe nineteen, but from September episode that maybe there's enough. Enough funding out there in the banking industry, and there's been fixed proposed. Maybe changing the regulation of Jesus surcharge or perhaps actually directly lending New York that being Repo funds to hedge funds. Is that something that you're entertaining? You talked about earlier this morning. But what? What's your thinking on that? Well, I. Do think that the experience, September where we saw a disruption in the in the retail market ten years ago but. Less than a year ago. And then in March you wear, which was an extraordinary shock with pandemic. We've seen disruptions in the treasury and related markets. This is clearly Know part of I think the you know we'll be studied very carefully, not only by the Federal Reserve. But by others in academic thought leaders are already thinking about better ways to build a better mousetrap around how these markets function of things. Today is not the time to solve that problem. We're obviously selling a crisis more focused on. Keeping things running smoothly and and keeping the markets functioning well, but I do think like the financial crisis over the next few years, it'll be a lot of thought. Given to how to best. Organize in How to best Carry Out of the core functions in these markets right now. They're they're you know they're functioning really well, the reason, no one's coming to our our repo. Ribas liquidity is ample. markets are functioning well, and and so right now things are very good. But I do think this will be an opportunity over the next couple of years for people to think. How do we make sure we have a strong financial system? Especially, there's very poor area. The rolling off of REPO has brought the Fed balance sheet down not by a lot, but it did tick back below seven trillion dollars but can be. Right, I WANNA ask a big picture question..

"But what we've seen over the past recovery since is that that has been undershot on, which is hard to kind of stimulate inflation. How does that guide your thinking for win to maybe lift off? I? Know you're not thinking about thinking about raising rates the. Time. Actually. Right. This is not the time to think about liftoff for normalization. Rollo's those where it's. In terms of your actual question around inflation I mean, the goal here is we want inflation to be anchored at two percent or people are the way I think about it is of You know a regular person or business person is thinking what's inflation likely to be over the time period of the loan I take the mortgage I. Take Order Carload. Yeah. What's the inflation rate I should think about it and I want that to be two percent for everybody, and that's what we need to deliver over time as if to percents Latian, and as you pointed out, that's been harder to do than to say. and. I would argue that much of that is because of this issue of the the lower bound interest rates in the limited ability in a in a global situation, very low interest rates to really provide. The combination or stimulus is needed to boost commun- and get inflation back up to what we want. So my view is very simple. Want inflation people understand that inflation will be two percent over any longer term horizon and we just need to both take the actions and communicate them in a way that helps US support that's been challenging in the past, and obviously that's something that we're thinking hard about how to do for the future. So you mentioned that businesses and households to want certainty in the future in something that. That kind of plays into that is longer term interest rates and something that's been floated is this idea of yield curve control pinning down yields on, let's medium-term three or five year treasuries to kind of provide a more a solid guarantees that rates will be lower longer..
What will be in the next stimulus bill?
"Get right into it. I, want to ask about the economic outlook to get numbers this morning on detail sale showing up pretty nice rebound in June. But then on the other hand, you have seventeen million Americans a still touring to unemployment insurance. And that you couple it with the epidemiological numbers I. Guess I'm just wondering, do you still see the baseline as a recovery in the second half of this year as I? Think you said back can. You highlighted a bunch of cross-currents it were trying to analyze and understand, and of course, the just an enormous amount of uncertainty and the uncertainty really stems directly with the you know the corona virus in the end pandemic and and how that behaves and and how effective and successful the efforts to contain it at the same time to bring the economy. Back up to full speed. So right now, the way I'm reading is still consistent with you know how you described and I've been talking about it. I, expect the second half to be a continued a period of economic recovery. But it's still you know we're in a very deep hole unemployment is over eleven percent. We have a long ways to go to get back to full strength My hope is is though that will continue to see positive signs of a gradual recovery over the second half. Half of this year into next year. But right now, this is camp critical inflection point. We're seeing these mixed signals in different states where the states where the case The number of new cases has been rising or definitely seen people back from going to restaurants, and in other things, wound states like where I am in New York around here, we are still seeing steady improvement in terms of people getting back to work and going out to restaurants and things like that. So it's IT'S A. Complicated situation and were watching all that you know high frequency data very closely to see what's going on. So, something that was interesting from the Beige Book, that was just released yesterday that in New York. This was the case in many other districts as well. Are there were stories of furloughed workers that have now been laid off permanently and I guess I'm wondering what you're seeing specifically in the second district covers New York Arts of new, Jersey Connecticut of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands. What are you seeing there? You mentioned also earlier this morning that you think it's going to essential for fiscal authorities. Quote, put cash directly in the hands of Americans based off of what you're seeing the district. What would that look like is that an extension of Ui maybe more picky P, for example. Yes. So what we are seeing and what I'm hearing is definitely that this obviously is a situation where a lot of employers don't have demand for their products and services whether you're restaurants or other. You know businesses They are having to to lay off workers despite their efforts, and despite the PGA and other programs have been there to provide a support of businesses and obviously to the unemployed. And households more generally. So I, I would take to kind of signals from what we're seeing is obviously, this is going to be a longer more drawn out period of getting through the pandemic I. think that you know work businesses are struggling because they don't have revenue state local governments are struggling because they don't have a tax revenue or other sources of revenue right now, and I do think an important lesson of the past few months, the federal actions and I really don't think of this is stimulus that really think of these actions to to help support Basically, grants and transfers to households and businesses has been absolutely critically important it's meant the people who've lost their jobs have been able to continue to pay the ramp of food on the table. It's also the pre program which you know is obviously had his challenges has been I've heard this from businesses or district has been effective and getting money to the small businesses. So they can keep going and hopefully come back. So my lesson from this disease have been effective tools. I'm not saying what Congress should or shouldn't do specifically, but this has been effective at dealing with the situation through July and I think you know are there are lessons to draw from bad in terms of? Guinness. The next six months. In, the meantime, the Federal Reserve has pin interest rates near zero. But I want to chat something fun. Now, forward, guidance right and I know that you can only speak for yourself. But what's your preferred method of messaging to the market? How long you will keep rates at zero bound especially now that there's been this discussion as the minutes of noted of federal. Reserve officials be playing around with the idea of an objective base or guidance that perhaps might be pinned to inflation, for example. Well as you know over the recovery period and the expansion following the global financial crisis, we did use for guidance pretty aggressively and I think very successfully starting in two thousand eleven. We did try different versions of. What we call, you know database versus you know contingent. Guidance and I think what the lessons from that is, you know win market expectations for the public understanding of what the Fed's likely to do gets out of sync with our own thinking for guidance has has proven to be helpful to help people understand how reviewing Monte policy. You know right now I actually think that are are the guidance we have in there, which is maybe more kind of descriptive informal or guidance his serving as well. So we do have some time to think about how we should. Should evolve that guidance is going as we go forward to me. The critical thing is, what's the problem we're trying to solve right now, we're still trying to fit you know all of us were trying to figure out where is the economy going today? Where is it likely to go in and learn from the experience of you over the next few months, and from that position, we can really I think considering and decide what's the best way to describe our thinking around the future path of a Monte policy. And, link that obviously. To our. Objectives of cheating the maximum employment and price stability goals. Now on inflation something. That's interesting that we're hearing from other Fed officials is where do you shoot the target as we know is two percent for the reserve. But what we've seen over the past recovery since is that that has been undershot on, which is hard to kind of stimulate inflation. How does that guide your thinking for

CPS alumni call for immediate termination of police officers in Chicago public schools
"Of Ah, Let's see. They are Chicago public schools alums, and they are writing a letter. They wrote a letter to the mayor and Janice Jackson alumni for the abolition of police in schools and basically, let's just read some of it to you here. As graduates of Chicago public schools. We urge you to terminate the CPS district contract with Chicago Police Department in advance on the August 31st 2020 Deadline. So City Council was supposed to take it up again and in the summer to see if they renew it or not, but they want it done now wanted over and let's talk Tio. Let's talk to one of people was part of this who wrote this letter and as part of his group Rest E fu phone on. I hope I said that. Right? You're what did I do Okay with that Rusty You did a great job and I'm happy to be here. I'm happier on too. I mean, look, I'm one of those who believes that should be up to local principles and local schools. You are not one of those people. You want this terminated right now. You don't think police belong in the schools. And I guess explain to us your position. Why? That is So I really think that you know the money going towards funding. The contract could be used to fund better resources to create better burning environment. You know, the contract is worth $33 million. That could be funding. You know, over 300 social workers, psychologists. This position is not really a firmer evidence rather than criminalized. Um, well, I think principal could make that decision and 33 million box. It's not you can't purely be a financial argument. I don't think Rusty because 33 million bucks is a lot of money to you and me, but CPS budget of 7.7 billion. And if you think about how 33 million is distributed, I mean, look, I don't have that goes. I just understand why, if a principal and the local school council which ultimately be ideally represents the parents, the teachers, the administrators and everybody, you know the community leaders and community groups that if they all believe that you know what our school one needs a police officer What? Why wouldn't it be okay? Well, you know, you have the loc it up completely. And then you have the students who are actually going to school. Dealing with the school resource officers on the day to day basis on the fact is that most people do not feel safe. But the school resource. No district of you know, almost 89% of color and I'm 36% of students are black and on a national scale black students are 2.2 More times likely to be referred tomorrow enforcement. So kind of, you know, message that thunder students when we have the story starts off in our school. How do you know most students don't feel safe. Has there been a pole of Students. I mean, how do you? How do you know That's true? Because look, I'm sure if I went out there, you could probably find people who say that they they've had a good relationship with the police officer has been stationed in their school for 15 years. Doesn't that exist, too? Well, you are on a local level. At my side. We had a debate about the student body and other responses will be collected. You know, over 90% of students out that we should remove school officers. The 10% felt like we should keep them. They you know they were in favor of having those peasants police officers for a shooter. Situation and, you know, data showed that resource officers don't really make a difference in that situation. All right. So you're you're you mentioned what kind of cut out there for a second. But you mentioned Northside Prep College prep, which is where you went, and which is with one of the schools that is making moves to remove police officers, right? I think I saw a story about that yesterday. Maybe Yeah, you know, we believe were one of the first actually vote to not retain our school resource officers, But I guess my my pushback on that rest he would be. I mean, you've got to be a bright person because no one gets into Northside College prep. First of all, Let me just put that out there because, of course, you have to score like 99% of all the tests in order to even get we've looked at. It's Ah, It's not a school that's known for violence. I've covered crime in the city for years, and I responded to violent crimes. Many many, many times many, many, many days I went to schools. Many, many times as well. I never went to Northside College Prep, and I didn't want to Lane Tech either, which is one of the other schools you attended. Those kinds of schools may have different needs. Isn't that fair to say? That is hard to say. But I think you know whether you're at Northside or whether you're a student in the throes of Inglewood. We all believe that we should have, you know, a better learning Thio more, you know, affirming learning community one where the horses are going to, you know, dealing with trauma that we experience growing up in the city rather than you know, having Cory and criminalize criminalizing them and sort of perpetuating the school president Pipeline. Is, um Is there some way of just kind of polling schools are we are sorry students because that's what you're pointing out. You're saying it's the students who really want this? Is there some way of truly figuring this this out? What would their with their concerns are there with their poles? Are is that is that something you guys are trying to do or so left unmentioned. We pulled Northside in particular and open 90 students. 90% of students were in support on our website. GPS alumni number

"Back to Alderman O'Shea O'Shea. Thought we were talking about Vaping earlier, but there's a lot. There's a lot going on in the city. Aziz, you probably have noticed, and I want to just kind of since you're here, old man. I want to ask you. You know what? What do you think? The most pressing issue for the city right now is you look at everything on the agenda. I know the budget is front and center, and there isn't Great news there. There's a lot. There's a lot of holes to fill this year. And next. Is you Look forward. What? What can you tell us? Way have very difficult decisions out of us pertaining to our budget. But I think the most pressing thing right now is the, um unbelievable amount of violence we have seen and some of our communities of the past several weeks record numbers and I feel like every weekend. It's a competition to surpass the weekend before, um Chicago Police continue get dozens and dozens of guns off the street for weekend. But you know, we keep having these These incidents of, uh, you know, mass shootings, you know, just last night in our neighboring auburn Gresham community you had, uh, you know, Our group fires into a crowd. Five people shot 10 minutes later. Full box away. Tell it toward gunfire. People shot. Um the unbelievable level of gun violence right now in our city is the most precious thing we have to. We have to try to, uh, you know, get some of these bad people off the street. You know, That's something that point is, well, we'll take it and I just I feel like we talked about this yesterday, and I'm hearing it again from the police superintendent and some of the top brass have been doing interviews today, and they're they're they're honing in on It's home monitoring system that they're saying is failing. The police department at the police department goes in. They find the guys with the gang members they might have. They have some sort of record. They're caught with an illegal weapon and they get the home monitoring system. There are 3000 of them connected to the county jail. There are 1000 of them connected to the county courts. And basically, no one's really watching them after they get out, and they directly pointed them as some of the key suspects in the last three weekends of the most violent crimes in our city that there seems to be this disconnect. Between the courts and what's happening with the whole monitoring system. I get this whole idea about the jail and the risk of Cove. It might make some judges more lenient on that sort of thing. But when you see this sort of pattern do you agree with the police superintendent when he makes these calls, and the mayor has mentioned it as well? About those calls to say, You know what? There's something about this home monitoring system that's failing us all failing those communities and putting these violent offenders back on the streets. Uh, 100%. I agree with the superintendent and the mayor, and, um I mean, peach, and every week we continue to see young innocent Children out in front of their own homes. How many young Children have to die? And where is the outrage? Yeah, We're almost desensitized to it as a city, And that is utterly frustrating. Um, the families decimated by gun violence. Um Absolutely. We have it. We have a problem with the monitoring system. There are thousands of bad people. Repeat gun offenders are on the street today and each and every weekend when we look at the numbers somebody involved in these shootings. Has a very extensive criminal record. That should not be out on the street. We need to figure out a way to get them off the street where they continue to go back and commit these violent crimes more often than not. Shooting innocent people, not the rival gang member. Um, it's it's so disheartening. It is.

"Answer Sir as we have the pleasure of doing here sometimes it can feel really hard to be able to put that framing around it in a way that allows you to say it out loud and articulate particular with precision and the thing about this. Is The music. Does that for you. It convenient for you that feeling in your heart that thought in your mind you know when I was learning my film scoring college is one of the things first things they tell you. There's this balance it's like when you notice the film score that's probably bad. It needs is to kind of melt into the scene in a way that supports it and I think John Williams pushes the envelope in a really interesting way because of course you're blown away by by the visuals on the on the screen but the music is really front and center in a way. That's kind of uncommon. A lot of other scores. I think jaws is like that too where you almost can't separate the suspense generated by the Fin. And the feeling that the shark is coming from that bomb bomb Obama Shrink Motif. He's really in a category by himself in that. Way William Taylor's his approach free track to what specifically the scene it pairs with it is attempting to evoke was playing on the screen. How will that make us feel? How can the music amplify that or even guide it one? Emblematic example would be duel of the fates in that same nineteen ninety nine. NBC News Feature on the making of the score Williams spoke about crafting that specific to and he said quote quoting thinking about what to put for this sword. Fight Dr Arnn fight this arch villain and his fantastic tastic about letting exploits these swords SARS so funding the music could have religiosity to a love so the thought you were watching a ritual that is incredible quote continues chorus and orchestra. Always give you feeling like you're in church or you're participating in spectacle spectacle and that's what I hoped the music would give this sword fight so that it wasn't action music accompanying fighting but some support to a spiritual contests and that. I mean that that really like allows us to think about so many of the things. We've been talking about the point that you were just making about how the score has to be totally of a piece at one with the rest of the film but also is such an achievement that you you can't help but notice that you can't help but think about it how it is informed by what is on the screen but also then informs what is on the screen that just incredible symbiosis that really is uncommonly rare senior Williams was ultimately nominated for an Oscar for five of the eight main movie soundtracks each movie in the original trilogy. And the new trilogy but not any of the prequels the soundtracks for new hope and the phantom menace went platinum empires in attack of the clones soundtracks reached gold. One more tough beat for the pre calls else there. Let's talk about the legacy and influence on the rest of not only star wars but he's a giant culture. Large Williams is present in the sound alums of Star Wars. Even when. He's not one crafting. The score Michael Chino scored rogue one and in so doing incorporated many of Williams's themes has he adapted the familiar Melia music like the imperial march to a new kind of story in an interview on starwars Dot Com. He said that he wanted to include quote little Easter eggs. That you would get to go. Oh Oh yeah. It's a way of reminding you of the universe you're in as well. I certainly didn't want to say hey I'm going to do a whole new thing with this and now it's going to sound like heavy metal. I wanted it to feel like home. I wanted people watching it to feel like they were in Star Wars Universe that quote I wanted it to feel like home is so wonderful. It is wonderful the composer's behind so low and the clone wars and rebels and resistance animated series all included. These kind of Oh Maggio's to Williams work for Solo Williams wrote a half dozen small pieces film according to Star Wars Dot com which helps set the tone for composer John Powell's work quote once John Unwritten his stuff. It all made a lot more sense and I really felt like we figured out the puzzle. Oh he said I also took the themes and develop them in different ways for other sections that he hadn't scored their woven in and out of the fabric of the whole score during the tussle. Run sequence Powell specifically reference the music that played during the escape through the asteroid field and empire because of the Han parallels and in Scifi Dot com interview in two thousand eighteen Kevin Connor the composer behind the clone wars series said. Dave Colonie told him quote. George doesn't really want us to use too many of John Williams tmz is star wars themes on this show at first he wanted to kind of have its own. Voice O'Connor said they'd sometimes go entire episodes at a time without so much as referencing Williams's work with rebels. Though given the time period subject matter the score was much more connected to the movie tracks quote we quoted the heck out of that kind of said of the new hope score in particular trickier hilarious flex kind in that interview as he talks about composing for so many TV episodes quote. If you're measuring by the pound I win. I've written more stores music. I think that anyone else alive and I'm Michael. That record for pretty longtime I think. Here's a here's a very simple way to kind of measure. The influence and legacy of John Williams name five film composers not named John Williams Isaac. Jason Asked you question. Oh Oh like a cross doesn't even matter if whole just in the popular. Right Naji Nation. Yeah he's mainstream across properties Williams's tracks to become so ingrained in our brains and our cultures that we instantly recognize them to Jason's point recognizes recognizes name. But you hear one note of one of his scores and you know what it is and who it's from. The imperial March in particular has become synonymous mess with authoritarianism and evil. You hear second in that you know immediately the kind of tone that whoever's playing it is attempting to set fun story from Cram in high school. He says he had a teacher who played imperial March every time an administrator came to their class to tell them about signing up for electives or graduation requirements. That's strange but intriguing. Everyone though has that one sound from Star Wars that triggers some sort of almost PAVLOVIAN response in them. Think of the way that you felt when you first saw the phantom menace trailer or years later decades later the force awakens trailer the we that hearing the a signature tones means you know Joe says fully as seeing the Millennium Falcon Flash across the screen or a lightsaber woosh across your screen. That you were back in the Star Wars Universe back in that galaxy. Think of how people don't want to be away from these sounds really longer than they have to think of. How many people? For example of Star Wars ringtones people want to carry. These sounds with you has stores. ringtones is Ben Burtt the pioneering sound designer owner who we will talk about in the temple eases some of unused sounds from. I believe it's the force awakens as his ringtone wonderful incredible auto flax sometimes we hear these blaring into a far bigger audience than just those near shot of our full. Think of Star Wars in sports number of starwars are worse themes have been used by sports teams EP club Tottenham with duel of the fates during its lineup introductions many NBA teams use the imperial March when introducing the opposing team which. I don't get because it's like it makes. The opposing team seemed more medicine. Yeah should play. You should play like the Benny Hill. Yeah yeah theme or something really pratfall Jar Jar Gung Gins Wasilla bad the good meanwhile the Yankees introduce reduce their own lineups the tune of throne room and entitled the Medal Ceremony Song from the end of the new hope while introducing their opponents lineups tune of the imperial March. Here again. Dan Yes same thing. What are we doing so you guys are the evil empire wire you doing? This and Brian Cashman himself called the Yankees. A death star they should be the ones embracing the imperial March. What you do and you would know.

Wow He's been nominated in six consecutive decade that is incre- and won so many other awards that it's impossible to list them all here without taking up the entire runtime of this podcast which actually you never know cast so Williams was born in New York. Just like Jason. That's right in one thousand nine hundred eighty two not just like Jason Sits right but he moved to La just like Jason as a team and he eventually attended UCLA. Go bruins studied with Italian teacher. Mario Castelnuovo Tedesco wonderful. who was a renowned Hollywood composer and after stints in the air force band and Juilliard Williams moved back to California where he began his career as a session musician and a composer for television? According it is personal website Williams wrote music for hundreds of episodes of shows like a call a Premier Kraft Suspense Theatre Chrysler Theatre and playhouse the House Ninety fucking crushing it. But of course it was his film. Career that made John Williamson's famous composer. The country perhaps the world the first feature film he worked on. One was nineteen fifty-eight daddy o while the forgettable about drag racing beat Knicks. It aged will drag racing. Beat Knicks with the tagline alive with the beat in the heat of today's rock and roll generation. I'm GONNA be honest. That sounds great. Daddy O's remembered for two reasons being mocked on an episode of mystery. Science Theater thought hasn't and serving as Williams feature debut wonderful throughout the nineteen sixties and early Seventies Williams worked on a variety of projects more feature films also. TV movies TV shows score adaptations of previous work and it was through that latter category that he received his first Oscar nomination for Valley Allie of the dolls and is first win for best scoring adaptation and original song score as he helped bring Zac. CRAMS cherished changed. What hasn't this man touch from the business? It's crazy got it. Tighten it really is and then his career really took off and that was all before his career took off. Yeah just like fiddler. On the roof ooh and hundreds of episodes of television that his career Eliezer because he began working with a young ambitious director named Seeven Steven Spielberg who Chaz Williams with scoring his little movie about a killer. Shark named draws partnership produced produced another Oscar winning soundtrack then they matchmaker Spielberg suggested John Williams to his good buddy George Lucas. They can't only talk about Out Battle droids. That's it you know he's always sounds great soundtrack. Right gotTA talk about. I got a guy and wonder of wonder miracle of miracles. That film and Williams's Williams's score were hits. Mega hits huge. Do you love me. They asked audiences across the country and audiences responded. With a resounding the star wars soundtrack soundtrack one Williams and other Oscar went platinum when it was released as it standalone album a disco version of the main theme and Cantina Song by producer. Meko reached reached number one on the billboard charts. That is honestly astonishing. As an interesting thing about this soundtrack it really was a curveball. For the time disco was the raining genre. And so doing kind of throwback orchestral score was seen at the time as certainly for a project that was as as the off the beaten trail is star. Wars was seen as a risk So it gave them another move in that they could then release the disco version and rake in the dollars amazing in one thousand nine hundred nine. NBC News interview around the release of Phantom Menace. Lucas set of working with Williams quote the first film. I was very nervous. I worked a little bit more closely with him and then after that I just let them do what ever. It's honestly a great great show. I think John Williams Leo's has it. Just let them do it. Let them roll. It soon. Became tradition for Williams to work on each core star wars project even through the sunrise sunset of the prequel trilogy trilogy which Williams salvage in part with the lakes Dula fates great one and across the stars and after Lucas pondered if he could be a rich man and sold Lucasfilm to Disney. By the current decade decade star. Wars universe was perhaps far from the home. Lucas love but William stayed on even without his longtime collaborator by December when episode nines the rise of Skywalker Williams. We'll have completed the scores on all nine films in the Skywalker saw. Congratulations on incorporating all of those fiddler on the roof references into that description. So what about about John Williams's style. How does Williams craft his signature? Sounds how does he ride arrangements. That are at one St Inspiration for Omegas and copycats everywhere our end that are on mistakenly heats specifically his that make us here star wars keenly as we see it and feel it Williams is known for using themes specifically the Term Leitmotif evolved Marion Technique Wagner by the way bad guy but great composer That utilizes a recurring musical motif corresponds with a core character. A significant location fee matic concept up to use them so much that. If you Google the word Leitmotif the first related image is one of the imperial March from Star Wars when us well as Williams does a late motif can serve as a powerful powerful connective tissue adding unifying layers underneath the surface level sentiment of the moment for example. All Ben conovys. That'd Happy Obi Wan I wonder if it means bank. nobis Theme Aka the forced him which is first introduced as entirety during the absolutely iconic binary sunset onset seen in a new hope luke using out to the distance staring longingly at the sky while the two sons of tattooing begin to set upon the horizon. And it's appraised repeatedly throughout the saga. Yeah well most notably in the final moments of Luke's life toward the end of last yet. I when just like his younger self. Luke is staring at the setting sun this time before joining the cosmic force now. The tenderness of that queue alone is a highly effective complement for the scene but the significance is enhanced by the MOTIF powerful book ending. Luke's Arc Williams is known for an affinity for brass instruments. I think when I think of brass us in soundtracks Bernard Hermann who scored many of hitchcock's films and taxi driver as well brass is muscular and just powerful often ominous especially when used with sparing amounts of strings like many film score composers of the time. He's he's influenced by late. Nineteenth Century and Early Twentieth Century Neo Romanticism. Traces of composers such historic cough Ski Mahler Wagner and even some Stravinsky Kinski when Williams does lean into more string heavy arrangements like raise theme which is called a New World Symphony remix. It's often reminiscent of Isaac's favorite composers of all time divorce Jack. So how did Williams find. He's star wars sound specifically while in a behind the scenes documentary about the the making of the empire strikes back score producer. Gary Kurtz offered this insight into Williams's first step to a larger star wars world quote. Originally John John was recommended. George Lucas by Steven Spielberg who used him on jobs. Dun Dun Dun Dun. We'd we'd all like the jazz scored very much had as good a traditional phonics score. We went through a period and feature films where traditional. She'll scores were not used. This is of course similar to the chase was making earlier quote continues Popular Music Scores and jazz scores. were the rage in the sixties into the early seventies. We felt for Star Star Wars. That it was very important that it be a traditional romantic score that decision very fair to say forever changed the history accessibility ability and visibility of cinematic scoring. Yes in that same documentary. Williams said quote. My first concern is a rhythmic one. I sent a speed to film. Every scene seems is to have an underlying tempo or a series of tempe a whole set of them perhaps at different levels the dialogue may go at a certain speed. The action may go at another speed so the thing that I try to feel and spot in the early stages of film or simple things like how fast is it. or how slow is when is the point in the films. That it accelerates. When does it press on? Press forward winner. The brakes put on in my mind. That's the first consideration that's fascinating. Yeah estimating around the turn. The money on the American Film Institute AF I celebrated one hundred years ears of American cinema by making a ton of best of lists you can find all of them online star wars a new hope ranked number one for best score and for many people remains means the absolute pinnacle the titanic achievement against which all other efforts are measure performances for the first two trilogies came from the London Symphony Orchestra. extrava heard of it for the new trilogy. The Hollywood freelance Studio Symphony and the physical location wasn't all that evolve before force Awakens Williams said in an interview with the Star Star Wars Youtube channel quote. I haven't seen the script story is still unknown to me. But I can't imagine that there will not be some references to the existing stories that we know that would necessitate acetate and make appropriate the use of some of the earlier themes which actually for me as part of the fun of doing film after film because in each case I've been able to use the earlier material and develop new material that would coexist with and that statement obviously helps to solidify something that is in some ways. Intuitive for US Williams is always innovating always experimenting always trying to create crossing new. But he's doing that in concert with an effort to continually connect to the past building. These ties justice justice. He's building something new that you always feel. You're heading into this fresh frontier while also just bathing in basking in those familiar sounds and QS in a two thousand five NPR interview Williams explained that because the themes of the movie went beyond Sci Fi tropes. He went that way with his composition composition to quote the translation of roic impulses and feelings and reactions and thinking in terms of melodrama. An opera brings us in the direction of a symphony orchestra. Rather other than with group synthesizers computers that might produce the spacey. otherworldly sounds you might expect. And that's important. I love that snippet the quote translation nation of heroic impulses idea so much I mean that's so core to how we think about these stories and how we talk about them and it's truly a wonderful gift to get it hear here him. Say That and get to think about how that informs process. Because when you're thinking about a story like this and how you respond to it what aspect of the hero's journey in general or Luke's journey or any other characters in particular. Do you respond to. Why does it resonate with you in the way that it does? And sometimes it can be like a great joy in your life to get to articulate that.

"Big thoughts, so you don't have to. Here's John Williams. Today. Justin Kaufman infra Chon pre one to ninety one seventy two hundred we're gonna talk tornadoes. Stories don't to get to the gaming Bill has been brought into committee. So it has been filed. So it looks like state rep Bob Bob Rita file a new gaming Bill which does include a Chicago casino. It's in committee right now. But they're starting the movement on that Bill would like we said we have ten hours, but they are moving ahead. And there should be a vote soon. Right. Steve on the marijuana. They're, they're getting down to the trickle of, of the last people who are speaking. We're still watching you. Yeah. So we'll watch for that as well. But it seems that we're starting to see some movement. The here's the one thing about we talked about this yesterday and roadshow, the gaming Bill and it's still in there, which is just weird. So it was a sports betting Bill to begin with. And then they kind of can include all the casino stuff on top of it. Then they made at one big Bill. But one of the things that was the whole point of sports betting into. Beginning was that you would be able to do it online that I be able to use Steve. We'd be able to go to a White Sox game. And while we're at the White Sox game, we could say, oh, let's go to my account and I can on your phone on your phone like a fan duel or whatever. Right. And I know that, that they were outlawed to begin with. They were outlawed in the state of Illinois and fan, dole, and draft kings. They went around the law didn't care. And so there's a lot of the players in this casino fight in Chicago. But also just in Springfield. They're mad at those companies they want retribution to those companies in this Bill, which is strange, but they want some punishment for the fact that they jumped out when the state told him, they couldn't. So here's the punishment. It will take for the first eighteen months. After the first license is operating. All accounts. For people who want to gamble all accounts will be set up at licensed gaming facilities. So you have to go in the first eighteen months to a brick and mortar place off track betting the casino, the racetrack whatever might be to put your to place a bet. It will not be available as a mobile operation. After that after eighteen months after the first license deposits can be made online. I don't get that makes no sense at all. That's in the Bill. They're this is the casinos and the race tracks and others saying, hey, we want a piece we want the sportsbook, we've followed the rules. We didn't do sports betting. You these other guys did it and they, they flaunted in front of you. So at least give us some some way to catch up or put him at the back of the line, wasn't the original Bill. If there wasn't original Bill going to allow the, the brick and mortar places to operate online facilities to. Right. Right. But that that's gone as well or not sure I'd have to look at how they do it. But yeah, I mean right now, they're saying, if you want to place, a bet in the first eighteen months, you got to go to the actual space that do it. Which, again, that's just seems weird especially as someone. I've, I've done fantasy football on my phone. Could you imagine if I had to do fantasy football where I have to go to go get on the bus? Go to a place. That'd be like stand in line like number forty three. Yeah, that's me like to can I please get Adrian Peterson. This seems like a very antiquated way to set up sports betting the whole concept was supposed to be that it's online, but it'll be an eighteen months. If this Bill gets through. All right. So we're watching that. We're watching recreational marijuana watching everything. That's happening in Springfield. Three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred there's been much made in the Chicago area about may the month of may being the wettest on record. There's been so much rain that has come through this area that the most in history, which is hard to believe, may as always wet in Chicago. But this is just been out of it. And then if you add on, on top of extreme weather, we're talking about some severe thunderstorms and tornadoes. This isn't just Dylan. Oh, this is the overall may twenty nine thousand nine could be could be historic month just because of what happened on this week where there was a tornado streak. I think thirteen days Walker Ashley's a professor of meteorology at northern universe near the Illinois, and you and I you northern Illinois university and walkers with us now Walker. Thanks for joining us. So are you surprised for the fact that, that there's been this much tornado activity in the month of me? It's certainly above normal, but the pattern has been conducive for. And so in the pattern is conducive in remained stagnant, the numbers will will rack up very easily. You know, I think about it. And the reason I asked the question that way is I always wonder because media will will spin it whichever way they want to this the wettest on record. This is unbelievable. All these tornadoes has never been like this before. But when you talk about meteorology that you have all the stats in front of you is it out of this? Does it have the, the community the, the academic community and also the meteorology meteorological community scratching their heads on this or is this, you could see this coming in this is this is just how weather works? I mean this was well cast of in my colleague, Dr John Seaney back in mid April was forecasting, that a very active mid to late may long range, forecasts, unfortunately, and, but we'll, we'll study this pattern for years into the future. But, you know, I think it's a signal that we've seen in the last couple of decades while we have very, very active years, but another years, it's very quiet, for instance around Chicago last couple of years, it's been quiet and ensure enough. We would kind of poke the bear with end. It's been very active over the last couple of weeks there. I mean I just some, some terrible stories coming out of parts of the midwest. When it comes to devastation these twisters to have this kind of all of the factors come together, and there's talking as well-forecasted, what has to happen for these kind of for this kind of activity to take place. Well, we always looked back to ingredients, like baking a cake, you're gonna basic ingredients to do that, at least correctly and in the fear, we need.

"WGN Anna happy Friday afternoon to you Jon Hansen for John Williams until three o'clock. So we're waiting on a few things are the sentencing trial underway for Jason Van Dyke were keeping an eye on that will, of course, bring you the ruling from the judge and whenever we get alive. But you just heard Stacey Saint Clair say that it could be a while. We're still on defense witnesses right now or excuse me prosecution. Witnesses haven't even gone to defense witnesses. So it could be some time. Also, keep an eye on this winter storm, which is barreling its way towards the area. Still a couple of hours away from that winter storm warning from officially taking effect, but I'm looking at the radar now. And I'm starting to see some snow approaching the Elgin area, the western northwestern suburbs. Oh, here we go weatherman, John hands. Sorry, I had to break in and thanks for chiming in pre sheet that before you officially starts do that was very county. But as I see I'm looking I'm zooming out the raiders far as I can this storm. This is a big one that goes back all the way to north South Dakota. Soaking california. Right. I mean, it's. Yeah. Moving across the country for a couple days, quite a clip. I was reading some stuff from Tom skilling in the newspaper that some of the parts of the Jetstream were blown at one hundred and fifty miles an hour. I don't know if that's faster than normal. It would seem to indicate that that would be as it's going to be quite an intense storm making its way through the area. But we'd love for you to chime in is it snowing near you three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred sometimes that when we talk we just like to commiserate with each other so feel free to chime in with what you might be doing this weekend with the snowfall here as well. I think it's a stay inside pajamas sorta weekend. But if you're so inclined to help some other people out the folks from my block, my hood, my city might give you some really cool. I'll -tunities to help out your neighbors Jamal Cole the founder joins us right now, Jamal, how're you doing my friend. How you doing today? I'm doing great. It's always great to talk to you. Give such a positive vibe. You do so many great things for the city. You're looking for volunteers, right? Definitely meant tomorrow Saturday at eleven AM be beating the red line station on Sunday nights. They were going to be helping out a lot of seniors in Chattanooga. They can't walkers and have neuropathy in the risk. They need help shoveling. So anybody that wants to come out and volunteer their time for meeting at eleven AM at the seventy ninth state Redline Jamal by then there might be eight inches of snow on the ground. You sure you can handle all this. You got a hundred glove. One hundred shovel we we got behind us. And we got Dr Martin Luther King. So what's something simple? You can do to make an impact on the city. You do not need a master's degree to shovel. Snow? You don't need a legal degree to wanna get to know, your neighbors. So we're gonna be doing simple stuff tomorrow by Shutler. So for singers. Yeah. I think a lot of folks out there know that the snow's common, and they kind of roll their eyes. But there are at least, you know, of an age where they're they're still able to get the shovel out and do it or maybe you got a snow blower at home. And it's easy for you. See it's easy to forget them. All that a lot of folks in our city don't have those resources to buy some like that. But they're just not physically able to do it. I mean this. This is something tangible you can do to make someone's life better. It's happening throughout history of Chicago as well where like a heat wave in the nineties were a lot of seniors. You know, unfortunately, lost their lives. But nowadays, we have technology what we can target specific demographic Swiss specific events, and we can help people better nowadays. So you live at Facebook. I'm utilizing technology to connect volunteers. So the thing is that need help Jamal. How many you've done the shoveling before right? I've been doing it for the last six seven years in Chattanooga community last year, though, there was about one hundred and twenty people that showed up of the United States to help shovel they came from Indiana, Edgewater, people from all over and John. That's the beauty of these events. You got people from all over the city all different communities cultures. Genders religious all coming together in Chicago to help people in need. It's beautiful part of the mission of your organization. My block my hood. My city is not only take kids from the south and west sides and take him to the north side of downtown. But it's really to encourage people from other neighborhoods to visit new neighborhoods, particularly on the south and west sides, where they may have a opinion of it based on what they see on the media. But it's a way different neighborhood toured the north Lonsdale neighborhood for the jam and had a great time doing it. So awesome. Awesome places. But I love that you're meeting at the red line Seventy-nine station because if you're anywhere along the red line or the purple line or the yellow line CD the trains run like no problem when it's no it's no big deal running with. So there's no excuse I on the north side not to come down to seventy nine street tomorrow. This red line of the order. It's harder Chicago, you know, you can't I fall asleep. I love the red line. You know, so tomorrow to Lebanon, but you're right. It's all to make Chicago better. We need more people to look up from the train when the rhino led lights. See what they can learn from different people at the sites around, you know, grab a bite to eat and neighborhoods. You never been to before we got to mean, our best quality of the city is our diversity step outside your appetite for adventure. They come out with help somebody that needs help in challenged tomorrow. Cindy, great. So you've got a Facebook page for the event, and they can also get a cool hat if they come right? Your little swag away. You already know for hundred people calling thirty if you will come and get a hat, you know, but we also you can text shovel the word shovel to five five to to to find out more information again, you can text message shovel to five to to learn how you can donate volunteer. But the first hundred people you already know you're getting. My city Jamal some people that are listening now probably have never heard of the organization, and you don't have to rehash the whole history of it. Because we've done that plenty of times you and I on the air, but I just think in thirty seconds or a minute, you know, how can people get involved in what you do. And I mean, it's these tangible things it's the cleanup things it's the snow shoveling things that your organization do that. Really? They just make such a big difference, man. Yeah. Well, my personal philosophy of democracy starts from the block level is not the city level in were just a block level outwear. So instead of saying the city is messed up the weather's messed up the politicians messed up. I think that's a of us messed up. Instead of blaming things. Other people. What's something simple? You can make yourself do have a positive impact. That's why we shovel snow. It's very simple. If you start with a simple things you develop the muscle. It takes to take on the biggest challenges. So. Hello. Your neighbor started blockbuster and your block started Facebook page for your block. What are you do easy stuff like that a ripple effect throughout the city? So tomorrow, we'll be Craig hopefully cleaning ripple effects if you can't make the United States. Go shovel your were snow through the block of UK. I wanna see that kind of ripple effect happens. Chicago, man, you're absolutely right. There are some folks obviously listened to us from the far suburbs. They're not going to have a chance to make it in. But you're right. Even in your call of a sack wherever you are. If you live in an apartment complex or wherever you need. Let's let's it's we're all in this together Jamal, Joe true. Doesn't matter. You can you can't make it agenda. You can get text message to five five two two two and make a donation. We you know, we buy the salt with buying the gloves. We're buying the shovels. We're out here. Trying to help as many seniors as possible, and we have a little one hundred eighty addresses of to do tomorrow. So I'm looking forward to as much help as possible. Or does mean United St. at eleven AM the month, Jamal, take it easy. Right. Thanks for calling in. You bet you have a good day..

"Miles per hour. I'm Eric rung in the WGN newsroom. Ready to join the conversation live whenever a story changes on Chicago's very own seven twenty WGN thinking big thoughts. So you don't have to. Here's John Williams. That John Williams everybody here, which you on. What is today is Thursday? It's a weird week. Isn't it? Good afternoon. Everybody map about here with you for John Williams on Thursday afternoon at one ten pm Eric rung in the newsroom telling us all the sad news about Oliver investments that have we got all excited yesterday. Eric today. We're not who knows. I mean tomorrow we could gain it thousand points on the Dow boy wouldn't this be interesting. If that's just the way things going out thousand thousand down then you never get upset you never get excited. That's why they always say, you know, you got to play the long game. You do have to play the long game. The long game is really easy to play when things are going. Well. Makes it easier to play. That's for sure. Things are going really bad. It's tough thing. All right. Have we just gotta wait another forty years. We'll come back. We'll be fine. But what goes John always plays in the show? What goes up must come down? Right. So things will come back here with you three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred is that we were talking Jon Hansen during cross talk. It does seem to be a crazy time of year here. I'll making resolutions, you're deciding should I do this? Should I change us? We just talked about the story about a couple that got married after knowing each other for one hour, which seems really insane. But a lot of people may this time of year thinking about do I need a job changes a time to move on. Or sometimes you get pushed to the brink where you can't handle it anymore, and you just walk out on a job. Eric have you ever walked out on a job? Just I have never walked out on a job that I I've heard plenty of stories of people doing that. It's funny. What's the newsrooms as well? I imagine you have. And it's amazing when somebody gets pushed to the brink of that point where it's just they can't take it anymore. Throw the computer out the window walk out the door. I'm mad as hell, and I can't take it anymore. Our friend Alexia Allah holiday Ruis is writer for the Chicago. Abune and she's got a great piece online right now. It'll be in your paper. This Sunday about people that just got up and went out in a blaze of glory. Hey alexia. How are you? Good. How are you? Good. Thanks so much for jumping on the phone with us. Now, it's funny because you right in the store, and you kind of mentioned a couple of times, it's really not recommended. This really isn't a good idea. You really shouldn't do this. But the none of the people you talk about the did it have any regrets over so. Let's that out because they seem pretty happy with it. I know I mean, we'll any expert on how to quit will tell you to maintain the relationships. Don't burn bridges. You know, the realized that this will come back and haunt you. How ever as you mentioned the people who do drop the mic and walk out the door and tell their boss to shove, it people talked to at least never seemed to regret it. Yeah. I wonder if there's three one nine one seventy two hundred if anybody's got their own story of what they did. Or what they saw happen in a workplace where somebody just stormed out. We'd love to hear it. But the people that you talked to I mean, one of them was a web designer who is very upset. It was a startup. So it's a small company and everybody's doing everything. Right. And we all know those companies where even though this is your title, you've got to help do everything there. But her boss introduced her to board meeting as a secretary, and that was infuriating to her because it's one thing to make much money. It's one thing to be to start up where do got to work crazy hours. But then tonight, even get the recognition. So she went back the next day and deleted, the entire website that she had worked on and just left a note and said and walked out the door. And that's not only did she just walk up and quit. But she took all the work. She had done basically with their that seemed like a really, but she was. Happy with that in the end. Yeah. She said she was just out of college. She'd only been there for a month. And she acknowledges that this was not the most mature way to handle the situation. But at the time, she was young she was maybe being a little dramatic. And she said that when she walked out that door. She just felt like she was the most powerful pushing the world because she like you said she just put a post it note on her computer saying, I quit after deleting. Our hard drives you didn't take down the website, but she kind of deleted she had done. So they couldn't track work they'd have to kind of do it over. And and. Yeah, so I got some great satisfaction about it. And you know, she said I wouldn't do that today. You know, I would voice my concern and say I was upset that you called me secretary when I'm going to factor webmaster. However, she said that if she could do it again, she would have just, you know, signed it you. Formula bastard, not your secretary that was the only two weeks. So, and that's maybe an easier one to do because right out of college. She doesn't have a mortgage and a bunch of kids or things like that where as we get older and have more I guess obligations in life. It gets tougher. But you also have a story about somebody who is in a corporate world and walked out. And then the next day was thinking, how am I going to feed my kids, how am I going to handle the mortgage next month? Yeah. That was an example of someone who had just reached the end of her rope, right? She'd been unhappy for a bit kind of better going to work had been really burned out and overwork and what her boss told her one day during one morning and said, hey, I'm gonna need you to work weekends or something. She just refused, and I couldn't put it in the story because a lot of s bombed data's exchanged bombs and she just walked out. She said she wept. The hallway home because she was responsible for half of the money at that time more than half the salary of her house will chat to kids and. Yeah. So she was very concerned about what this meant just four making ends meet. And what happened though is that she was able to then, you know, chill out you knew that she really loved gardening and slowly. But surely kind of built a business around writing books about gardening giving wellness advice. And now she has she has her own business, and she's so happy she didn't make as much as she did corporate salary. But her health is much better. Hit always stress related allergies which have since subsided. And so she also doesn't regret it even though in that moment. It was very stressful. It's such a tough thing to way, I think is basically what we look at his am I going to make as much money and looking at will I feel better my allergies subside when my stress abate is very tough. I think for us on the outside to look at it and say, yes, this is worth doing. I think it gets very tough as we get older. T- to maybe not just walk out of a job, and even to think about changing jobs changing careers when there's so much stress of life that surrounds us in our everyday, you know, credit, and and everything that we are in so many different places as Americans today. Yeah. For sure I mean, that's why we all. That's why people stay even when they don't want you when they'd be happier. Doing something else. Just because it's a fear of the unknown. I mean, right now, the reason the reason that kind of the story to the fact that, you know, two very tight labor market and the quits rate is really high. It's the highest been about twenty years, which means that people are quitting at at higher rates, which means that they feel comfortable that there's another job waiting for them. That's not always the case. But even when it is the case, you know, it's kind of like, the the w no versus you, don't or something. But ever that saying is that you know, you hate about your job. And you don't know what's on the other side. If you're gonna hate it just as much for other reasons, or even if it's going to be giving you the stability that you feel like you need you mentioned in the story. So the quit rate is two point four percent for the three months that was back. This summer was two point four percent for the three months over the summer, which basically meant that two point four percent of the American workforce was quitting their job over that time, and that was the highest it had been since two thousand one. Yeah. That's right. It's really interesting. And I wonder, you know, the workforce seems so different now than it did in two thousand one right because there's so many people working multiple jobs, and so many people part timing and contracting work, and I wonder how that relates to how we keep jobs these days because so many Americans aren't just working the one job with benefits and getting by on that. Yeah. That's a good point. I mean, people might also be moving more often because you know, just generation that's the case. And also the types of jobs, we have might be worse jobs are not paying quite as well. And so you're doubling multiple jobs. You're moving computer there. So yeah, that's true. That could also reflect just a change in how we're working. I think even when you're not going to quit a job like that. But you know, you need to move on or want to move on you talk in the story about how difficult it is for people to decide to move on from Johnson. What companies are doing a one company particularly here in Chicago who is doing to encourage their place. Look if you are looking for other work, there are ways to go about that. I want Alexia to elucidate on that a little bit after. We take a quick break. Three one two nine eight one. Seventy two hundred is the number and the text line Alexi alcohol.

I guess that's a currency. Isn't it? Sure. And when I think about a guy in Chicago, I mostly think about tickets in. I know a guy who knows people, and I know that if I if I couldn't get tickets to the Blackhawks or the Bob Dylan concert, or whatever the big deal was looking about dealing on a sheet of paper in front of me. I think a reservations too, I serve jury duty probably twenty five years ago in the at the time the person who oversaw that he's like, hey, listen next time, you get a call. Here's my number, and I'll take care of it. And then he was my guy to get out of jury duty in a, you know, look the other way to say we lost a document with Bertrand on it. That could happen. I think when I'm looking to write a review on a concert. I always think of my guy, I go who's the person that I should reach out to that would definitely have a connection to the publicist who's my guy. He's your guy. This is John. I'm a retired cop female. And if I needed a guide to paint my front room, I'd have ten guys at roll call. Gimme a guy. And they said he said if they said he was a good guy that sealed the deal, and the guy is universal girls were also guys. So somebody who will get the job done for you. I think these are almost always cash transactions. Well, let's facilitates it. Having a good painter though. Yeah. That is a good guy to have somebody just texted. Hey, john. I looked you're not on tomorrow. I'll have to double check on that. I've been San I am right. I'm not going to break it to you in the break. Are you kidding me? You just found out now that you have tomorrow off. Yes, I thought it was all set to do the show tomorrow. You can go to the beam o'hara's MAG mile lights west so tomorrow, we've got a game on northwestern. Minnesota ten thirty pregame. Yeah. I know we cover the games here right here on WGN. Maybe a guy should've told me that. Hey, John the thing about you're doing think it's not going to happen. We've got a game. Yeah. It's. A game tomorrow. It's Karm and mazer. Yeah. I love those. I'm not gonna listen to that Iran. They're wonderful. It's your sports guys. Okay. So I don't know if I don't know if this is the thing. But if you who's your guy, and how did you get connected. What was the thing? Did you really buy a diamond from guy? Steve. Yeah. That's Joe said, I got a guy that I remember the woman who told me, so if you want to get engaged, oh, I got a guy on Wabash because that's where I don't know. If jewelers row still exists like I used to. But you go down there and the guy, you know, we'd pull out the the drawer with the diamonds in the first heat educate you and then once you were learned he'd rip you off. But I mean, but that's not how the guy the guy experiences that everybody wins. Right. We don't know where there's diamonds came from. No. But you know, if you're thirty or something it's impossible, though. I got a guy who can help you out. So if you're green you may get ripped off by the guy concept, but in my world, the guy I don't know how we got those diamonds they may have been mined in bowling. I didn't feel ripped off by it. I'm just saying so so he somehow acquired these things at a good price later than he was my guy that I sent other maybe Ryan to but there's always a guy at the company to that gives the most hookup up. So even if you go to a store, maybe jewelry store. No, that's the guy that you see me like, I'll give you the family friends this. I'll tell you what that is. That's Steve Schapiro at apt. Steve's god. The thing is he stopped taking my call apt is a store it's the largest single retailer of electron IX in the country. Right. It's the largest single store retailer of electrons in the country girl there too. And so there's a guy named Steve Shapiro there. And he's wonderful guy. His son works there too. I was on the phone with them recently about a stove. So I'm talking to him and he's always going. Yeah. I listened. We'll. We'll take care of that, you know, and I'm gonna take this off. And don't worry. We'll that delivery charge just disappeared. But he's the perfect example because you just put yourself in his hand. I totally do then he you know, that it's good. He's your guy. I do guy. Gold Coast auto. We can start doing shoutout. I don't mind, but I have to say this in Steve if you're listening. I'm just telling you my truth. I don't know how good my deals are. I know that he always takes care of me. I give great service. It's never liked. There's a line. If I say, Steve I need something truck is there with a refrigerator. And I think he's given me a discount, but I'm not even sure good. Even if he's not, you know, you're getting you're not getting ripped off. I like him. He likes me. I know I'm not getting ripped off. I think that you. I think if anybody calls, Steve they're going to get the same great deal that I'm getting so I I don't I don't know if I'm saving any money, but I love the number. Let's find out. So, you know, more power to you, Steve if if if you're having your cake and eating too because I'm happy for the service. And you know, everybody goes daft, and you good people there. That's for sure. The I think really auto body shops, the a great place for a guy. That's great because I'll tell you. What you what was the automotive problem you had recently? And I thought if I went to a traditional place. Costs a lot. What was the? Was your was transmission was at your brakes now. Yeah. No, no, no, your windows your boyfriend got you. Window film, or whatever from his guy. Now, I recently got rear ended from front and back. Smashed and bitch. I was parked out. My technically. Yeah. Go ahead. That was smashed in between two cars. So when I took it to the guy, I'm like, hey, and then insurance covers this on like, hey, get a discount for either end. You know, you know, what I'm saying also fix this thing. I just remembered something funny. John was. We'll be the judge. Burger you're my guy. Oh, that's right. I know that I get a text Eleftheros my mom's in town. And she really wants to have a good Chicago burger, we need a burger. Burger guy. And so I turned to my guy Brenda, Brenda. And she goes, well, you're the ones disorders the hamburgers. Brenda orders. Veggie burgers. So I said, well, the couple of places in the hotel Zachary, blah, blah, blah, you didn't go to any of them. Sorry. They weren't burger places. And then a few days later, I see Brenda at the polling place, and she goes, so did you get the Berkeley, and you go. Yeah. But we didn't take John's advice because he's not a burger guy. Okay. Three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred. Oh, yeah. What is this? This is Bill. Hey, Bill, you're on WGN radio. How are you? Okay. Steve mentioned a little bit of gold jewellery. Julia role. I had one also that was the guy he used to send people to him. He was five north Wabash. Yeah. I don't know are still own a business all those guys or not. But I had the same thing you go in there. Hit folder door out. And then I had some Jewish praised. We had over the period of years has given inherited from people to come down one day in his easier. So you play things and. Heading for the insurance and that and so one day, she said, she's gonna have reappraised. So I took him. He went out of business in it took them know, the guy and the guy said juris all fake. Oh. Appraised for a couple of thousand worth nothing. Save money on insurance. Then. I sold. I told her too bad. We didn't lose ring or somebody stealing. Hey, thanks for actually, I got a guy who could take it. Yeah. Really the your job is now to find some other guy to buy it. And isn't the essence of a guy? He's hitting municipal worker. They'll usually isn't your guy the garbage man at a cop or of the the guy who works for the alderman. That's the jeweler one is a good example of you want to feel good about the purchase you made. So then you spread that guy. You know? Sure. That is the currency to twenty three. This is WGN. Let Casteel will.
"john williams" Discussed on WGN Radio
"This is John Williams at the end of the mincing rascals podcast. You'll find it a WGN radio dot com. And on my Facebook page. I'm WGN king. John we asked the gang to give us a recommendation Patti Vasquez recommended a book, I told you. I wanted you to hear her recommendation this week, and this is that. You know, one of the great things about being WGN radio. Is that authors send us books? So this book is actually coming out on October second it's called what if this were enough. It's a it's a collection of essays by Heather have have Leschi. I'm sure I'm meeting her name. But it's it's really about how are we pursuing happiness through consuming technology and travel. I want to save money. Take my kids at DisneyWorld instead of these these goals that we have and what if you just sit back and thought, you know, where I am is pretty darn good. And it was a lesson. Where is it? Struck a chord with me because I have two boys Griffin and Declan Griffin is older than his brother by two years, and his younger brother has significant special needs. And when they were in grade school, they were they were only for six months where the able to go to school together, and the the prince of principal pulled me aside and told me how remarkable Griffin was in his twenty five years. He'd never seen a kindergartner Laker fan. And I said, I know Griffin is the best big brother Declan could have. And I really believe that. But when we got in the car. You know, because I always had felt like I'd burdened Griffin by having a second child with special needs it. We'll never he will never live independently and Griffin. Look, really serious. And I said, sweetie. What's wrong? He goes, you didn't tell principal Smith that Declan was the best little brother, I could have. And this book reminded me of those kinds of lessons that Griffin has taught me so I just really struck by that. That's why I recommend this book has messages like that. Like Russian shares Griffin. Shares could be saying or thing. Thank you Patti Vasquez. You can listen to her weeknights with Andrea darlas on WGN radio. And there is good at night as she was on the podcast this week..
