Ken Burns on America, selling his first film and more
"With With such such an an acrimonious acrimonious election. election. We We turn turn tonight tonight to to a a man man who who tells tells the the story of America in all her divisions and struggle for unity. Ken Burns. Documentaries range from the Civil War to baseball, Vietnam and last year's country music. Burns calls himself an emotional archaeologist. He excavates lost love letters for gotten photos and overlooked heroes research so deep Viewers can feel like strangers discovering America for the first time. His films asked what it means to be American, so we asked, What does it mean to be Ken Burns? I have had the privilege of spending my entire life making films about the U. S capitol you capital s, but I've also had the privilege of making films about us. The two letter lower case plural pronoun that has a kind of intimacy and warmth to it in the country Music film Merle Haggard says. Country music is about those things we believe in but can't see like dreams and songs and soul is telling us that there is In front of us a kind of rational world in which one in one always equals two, but that the thing that compels us forward as human beings is that we look for one in one Equaling three. We find that in our faith, we find that in our art we find that in our love of each other, and I think one of things I discovered working on country music is that When I understood this dynamic between the US and US lower case upper case that I realized there's only us no them. The choice was easy because Thie American struggle to forge union from diversity has been Ken Burns obsession since he was 11 years old at the end of this lane in Ann Arbor, Michigan. In 1965, his mother was dying of cancer. At the same time, the fight for equality was in critical condition. Before my mom died, I would watch and I would hear from the other room about the dogs and the fire hoses in Selma, and it would make me as upset. As upset in my gut. As the worry about my mom. And it was almost as if I was transposing the cancer that was killing my family and the cancer that was killing my country. And if you look at my films, almost 40 of them, you can count on the fingers of one hand. The number of films that don't end up dealing with race. His early films included the Statue of Liberty and the Congress, but it wasn't until his seventh. That America returned. Ken Burns affection. The Civil War was seen by 39 million viewers, an 11 hour epic that immortalized a love letter and the walls. The Ashokan farewell. The fiddle to the fiddle tune that you could never get out of your head already died out of the home. The lament seemed written as a score. For the letter union soldiers, Sullivan Ballou wrote his wife a week before his staff. I shall always be with you in the brightest day in the darkest night, Always Always On When the soft breeze fans your cheek. It It will will be be my my breath breath or or the the cool cool air air your your throbbing throbbing temple. temple. It It should should be be my my spirit spirit passing passing by. by. I I think think every every man wishes he could say those words to the woman he loves. And every woman wishes that her man could say that that maybe our shot burns films are a letter to the country he loves, but not out of blind devotion. His is Theophile action that endures after confronting America's founding flaw. We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal, yet he owned more than 200 human beings. And never saw fit to free them. Burns finds Thie American paradox in the wars we fight and the games we play that told people that baseball was the sequel to the Civil War, and I meant it. I meant it, how we play games and the nature of immigration and the exclusion of women and popular culture and advertising and heroes and villains and our imagination and race and race and race. Are who we are, and the first really progress in civil rights after the Civil War takes place when Jack Roosevelt Robinson, the grandson of a slave makes his way to first base at Debits Field on April 15th 1947. Then there's no question that the story of baseball is just going to take off. From the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and the failure of reconstruction and moved to that to that moment. Ken Burns moment came in 1981 with his first subject, the Brooklyn Bridge, which no one thought was a good idea where you had an inanimate object and no one to interview right. Great television. Yes, and I look 12 years old, So I was out trying to raise money. And they say this child is trying to sell me the Brooklyn Bridge. No. PVs bought the Brooklyn Bridge and Burns structured his style. Animating images frozen in time and giving them voice here. I was 32 years old, suddenly in charge of the most stupendous engineering structure of the age. Famous voices volunteer just to be in a Ken Burns film Meryl Streep as Eleanor Roosevelt. Courage is more exhilarating them fear Tom Hanks in the war. You'd never realised now that he was one of those emaciated, tortured souls who survived by some miracle. The horror of that death march at the town. His films have the pace of patient revelation. And time. To think. This is a beautiful beautiful part part of of the the country. country. It's It's the the rhythm rhythm of of a a director director who who lives lives not not in in New New York York or or L L A, A, but but on on 50 50 acres acres of of Walpole, Walpole, New New Hampshire, Hampshire, where where even even his his apples have history. So these air cuttings that were taken from trees at Monticello. Of course they are. We met Burns before the pandemic at 67. He has four daughters from two marriages, but his longest relationship for decades. Is with PBS unfortunate that PBS exists. I can go tomorrow to a premium channel or or someplace streaming service and get it. $30 million to Vietnam. But no one's going to say you can take 10.5 years can. This was the main bedroom. He couldn't take his time because he raises the money and runs his own company, Florentine films. Producers, writers, historians, editors and photographers craft a half dozen films at once, so Burns can release about one a year, even though a series like country Music takes eight years to finish. Country music, the songwriter Harlan Howard said his three chords and the truth is, if you listen to 15,000 songs sifted through more than 100,000 still photos And did 101 on camera interviews. Why so much? One would think that making a film is an additive process your building this? It's not. It's subtracted. The best metaphor I know of is we make maple syrup here in this town. And it takes 40 gowns of sap to make one gallon of maple syrup. And that's what the process is. Burns has boiled down the history of Mark Twain, the national parks plus 18 hours on Vietnam and 19 hours of jazz kins films touched Something at the heart of our mythology and who we have been. At our best in that are worse and who we want to be a composer Wynton Marsalis collaborated on jazz and country music. Marsalis is artistic director of New York's jazz at Lincoln Center and something of an expert on improvising with Ken Burns. He'll be vibrating. And that'll be in the fourth year of something, and it will be one o'clock in the morning after you've worked since nine o'clock in the morning. So now is one o'clock, so he's still like, No, no right here. We need to where we need to. In the sea, like a person with that type of energy and just on fire like that. And as he's grown older, he's gotten worse. So you know the fire's got bigger. The fire is the fires. And just the enthusiasm fired of passion can told us that you see him. So What do you say? You know for me? I always feel like a kid. If you can retain that childish What are in wonderment and belief that you can change things. If you can maintain that. And that's what I see in him.

"While Mama's Apprai- rob would be some Eugene by Merle Haggard and I you know there's a number of these songs Mama tried is another one. That sort of definitive was a special favored of my mother. She would always lecture me. You know what listen to this boy and how Mama tried and she never never shame me by going to prison like that. What what is I mean? Merle haggard as we know now did spend some time in jail he. He didn't turn twenty one and he did turn twenty one in prison but he wasn't doing life without parole. He did get paroled and he got out but he was actually in San Quentin and saw johnny cash. Tell us about about about haggard and prison and his relationship with that. Why was there a slow to publicize that? Yeah there's a lot to unpack there I'm going to. I'm going to push back in one part of your initial premise. In that while on the one hand it's definitely true that haggard is identified with present songs and particularly with him back home and Mama tried right. That's some of the greatest records but he actually didn't record very many prison songs. You'd see I When I was doing the book I saw that in over three hundred sides he cut while he was at Capitol records which is basically like nineteen sixty five to nineteen seventy seven thirteen. Most of those were early and and they're interesting and that they tend not to they. Don't tell us very much about like what life in prison is like that. They tend to be more existential songs. about how it feels maybe to be trapped but not not actually about day to day life in in in prison fugitive is interesting so because it certainly begins to help establish his identity as a kind of outlaw. Some hello right in the sixties But it also reminds us that while haggard is a great songwriter. He recorded tons and tons of songs that probably a lot of people assume he wrote but he didn't. That's all. It was written by Lynn Anderson and her husband I think then Anderson and mature forget Which they wrote partly inspired by the fugitive television series. I'd also point out that it also pointed out that The fugitive I would say that's technically not a prison. Saw back on the run criminal on the run I was trying to get two categories in at once. You know if he's trying to. He's he's on the run again. He's running kind again. Just recently occurred to me but senior back home. One of the greatest prison song is also a running. It's another other running song it's about how can I get out of this prison even if it is just with my imagination. Where where the songs the discreet singers can take me. Yeah it's it's it's fascinating and I didn't realize that until I read your book that that he despite the big presence of the prison songs in his legend and outlaw songs like you say it's a pretty small chunk of it but there's another two categories that want to cover together that are pretty big chunks of his of and that's and that's working man songs and drinking songs. The drinking songs were kind of where he came in. I I you know hit. His first. Big Hit was strangers. All my friends are GONNA be strangers. Which by the way is another one? Anderson saw But then he had swinging doors and the bottle me down drinking songs kind of where he came in his first. Big Hit for national top. Ten hit was All my friends are GONNA be strangers. Which coincidentally was actually another was Anderson Written Song But when he when his first big hits that he wrote himself were swinging doors and the bottle. Let me down those a lot drinking songs of sort of fallen out of favor and country music or at least I should say this particular kind of drinking song where you're drinking to drown your troubles like It's it was he he was. He became quickly expert at it. One of the things that he talks about a lot in both of his autobiographies is how before he'd had any hits he and his His manager Fuzzy Owen. Would you know sit down and go through the billboard country charts so by Song it's supposedly would sort of like just say okay? Here's why this is hit. And he would burn down here about. Here's what strong about it. Here's what it does and I kind of feel like. That's what haggard is green on those early country songs country drinking songs that he has his whatever. He's like trying to figure out the form. How do I have yet? He's a good study. It's when he gets to the fugitive and then the follow up song branded man That he begins to sort of distinguish himself those early drinking songs classic and Great. But they're also sort of There's a lot of other artists around like that. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah exactly And he actually you know you pretty quickly leaves them behind his single stop being that and he turns to what you talk about The working man songs. The most famous of those of course is working man blues Which I probably might say after hungry is would probably be my favorite. It's such a great record right. It's got that like you mentioned earlier. That James Burton was a key part of Haggard Studio Ensemble. The lick that That Burton is playing on that record and the groove that he and the rest of the band Get going is almost immediately transferred always Presley in Las Vegas when he was making those comeback shows in nineteen literally the same band. It's the same band and it's the same groove that thing that always I think people sort of Don't you know here as well today. They might have in that moment And it's just one more way. That haggard was sort of like you know playing around with top potential In that in that moment like Bucko and the Bakersfield sound and you and you go into some of the reasons this isn't entirely or it's kind of an oversimplification but the basic stereotype is that the Bakersfield country sound in the sixties was wilder and closer to rock Richard Drums. A lots of electric guitars and steel guitars less fiddles whereas Nashville was gone country politics with strings etc etc. Like you said that's a little bit overstated. But I think it's generally true and grown up here Merle haggard and I would hear him on the radio and I had a couple of greatest hits albums but Intel. The you know. The day of the celestial jukebox dawned on us and could acquire his whole out in our at least listen through his whole album collection. I never went back and you know through all the first fifteen albums or you know the things. I did preparing for this interview. And so it's it's really fascinating. I definitely never knew that James Burton and the the taking care of business band was backing up. Merle haggard and the next sort of theme or wanted to talk to was his tribute songs that he did a whole album of Jimmy Rodgers songs. He continually covered lefty frizzell and was very clearly an acolyte of great lefty prevail. He did a whole album to Bob Wells but the one that he really kind of fell flat on her. The most disappointed those four is his elvis tribute and real you know reading and realizing. Oh my God. He had played with these guys for years. They played for three years. Why on Earth do it upright on that Elvis? Yeah it's it's it is an odd odd thing it's It's a it's a testament to what a big Presley Fan Haggard was was that he was already working on those presley tribute album before Elvis died And but you're but you're right. I think that that's a pretty doug album wanted. The I'd put it definitely the probably the bottom third of haggard entire career and it doesn't make sense is a huge haggard fan. You came up in Bakersfield scene. Where all those bakersfield bar bands new their Elvis Presley cold could play it hot and you listen to that record and you think my God this is just a dreary sort of going through the motions thing. Why didn't he tap James Burton? Who had been as bandleader in the studio when all those records He didn't actually have the T. Cd Band Backing him in the studio ex- except on Surprisingly enough okay from skokie on brushes and Glenn Harden is playing the piano in the studio version And hardened played onto the tracks but it's just burden but why did he get One of the reasons I'm guessing is that you know. He grew up as an elvis fan in the moment right. He was where he goes to prison. He's it's in nineteen fifty seven and so Personalities already a superstar at that moment right and that's kind of the the direction higher tax on that record as he tries to not do contemporary elvis seventies late sixties Elvis. He's trying to sort of do a fifties all this thing that Fo- fifties does it. Work does get the Jordan airs Like those fifties with Elvis but I would have preferred that. He tried to get like Jd. Sumner and the stamps or you know the backing vocals in the later years. Yeah I sir and and you've got slow go I do before we leave this idea of tribute records so yeah. That is such a key to the haggard aesthetic and two. I think how country music works country. Tradition works as if you if people want to sort of you know have a model for how to ensure that the country tradition continues as we go forward. The trick is always not to make new records that sound like old records. It's to make new records that same sound brand new but that also managed to sound like or connect to the old records right. So that's what his Jimmy Rogers tribute album does. It does not sound like Jimmie rodgers singing in nineteen thirty. It sounds like the album road. Haggar put out right before that pride and what I am. He updated that old. Sound you Jimmy Rogers. As at the at the best of the class because he uses his state of the art sound.

"Nate Wilcox and today. We're joined by. Debbie Cantwell author of Merle Haggard. The running kind David. Welcome to the show. Hi Nate and start this. Additionally has focused on sort of the cultural technological and business aspects of music with a lot of emphasis on you know what factors made somebody a superstar. What can things inhibited? Somebody from being a superstar and your books a little different in that. It's a critical analysis of Merle haggard as an artist with a heavy focus on the lyrics. But the reason I think this book is perfect for our show is that Merle. Haggard is somebody who achieved country music superstardom and had a real shot at pop superstardom but didn't make it arguably because of his lyrics that a fair assessment. I think that's mostly I ask. Yeah he's Definitely did not become a pop superstar because of records like fighting side of me. But I think that there was a moment in the early seventies late sixties early seventies when his lyrics and here's records one of the things just as an aside like I do a lot of you know lyrical analysis of Hagrid body of work in the running kind but I also try really hard to not forget that the music matters as much not more so I think he he. He was making records at that moment to they put him on. You know on the list of people who might become a pop superstar. He had a chance. So there's a lot of countries superstars in that moment Who crossed over Grand Campbell? Johnny cash so on So yeah but then but then fighting side yeah but then fight inside but and I'm glad you mentioned the music but you know James Burton among others offices famous Elvis side man in the Las Vegas years as well as Ricky Nelson's guitarist played a role in rural haggard and the records great of a great bands. Great Arrangements. And I definitely don't want to give that did that. You're only talking about 'cause you definitely paid out subsitute respect but right there in the opening in the Intro to the book you talk about one damned song as a dominating the Merle haggard legacy in the popular consciousness. Tell us about Okie from Muskogee and how it came to overshadow the rest of morals work. Yes Oh if we're if we're thinking about is in terms of how it overshadows why can't before so think about what came before Merle haggard is just had a series of Country Number One And songs that have kind of a country pop Real to them. That could've been pop hits but weren't songs like Mommy tribe especially seeing back home Mama's hungry eyes working man blues It's besides silver wings which is one of the most beautiful country pop records You'll ever hearing your life and all of these things are sort of you know establishing haggard as a songwriter and record maker that people who aren't country fans they're paying attention to even I think both rolling stone and life magazine at the time made the argument that you know if pop stations would placing back home. Then it would be a huge it. They didn't And then okay came out which did become a very minor. Pop hit so. I don't know how much you want me to go into the history of that particular song. I WANNA come back to that but I just wanted to get that point in there. That Merle's opera is overshadowed by one song. I WanNa get to the whole genesis of that song. Run and the right time and place and let's pull back a little bit and and there's one more question I asked before we get into this sort of historical narrative and start going in chronological order and the second question is the books called the running kind. Why did you pick that song? And what is it about that song that you feel is definitive or the right song? I picked to title a Merle Haggard analysis when I think that particular phrase right. The running kind is Really just an ideal sort of summation of what Merle haggard about the line in that Song Where he says Every front door down the hoping that I'd find a back door open. There just had to be exit for the running kind and then idea of wherever you're at you want to be somewhere else is a an idea that shows up in haggard lyric over and over and over again. I think it's a It's associated with his ideas of what he thinks. Freedom is We can get into at a few GAL. Let's go ahead and hit a hidden on the freedom point before we get into the life story. Yeah so I so one of the things just for example. He associated with frequently associated with train song. He's constantly trains. He loves trains You know he catches catches trains to get him to get him gone somewhere else to get him away from responsibility in working man blues He's a sometimes. I WANNA throw my bills out the window. Catch a train to another town kind of a classic idea that if I stay here I'm trapped with in a relationship. I don't like a job. I hate Just expectations from any demanding. Anything up me and so the way to be free of them is to sort of reject them does is a very common kind of rock and roll trope. I think there's lots and lots of rock songs they do. The singing presented very romantically br example. Free Bird No. Where the where. Where he's he's. He's leaving. That woman behind there are other Eagles songs and Allman brothers songs all round men and such and it's all about rejecting these obligations and freedom. Is that rejection? It's moving on for Haggar. When the things that interested me about him is that he does that too but he tends not to presented romantically. It comes off as its own sort of trapped so for example in his in his train song he's constantly saying trains of or the things that are going to give him his escape route to freedom but one of the things about trains is that there you can only go on the tracks. You only go to the one place. It's a predetermined outcome as to what you're going to end up This happens This is comes up again and again and haggard lyrics You Know He. He sings one song that he has rambling fever He's talks and many many songs about how he was born to be running kind. It was born to have rambling. He he's got. He's got a disease and his blood keeps moving on so what is presented initially as freedom is also understood is sort of this thing that he can't get out of that's another trap another prison and one of the things. I value about haggard is that he definitely presents book. Those two ideas not as action. Definitely intention Intention with one another dome necessary complements like up and down good and evil city country which poor prison those two things are constantly always there present out romantically just the way lot is. Yeah and that's one of the things that's fun about Merle haggard fascinating about Merle haggard and earlier this season. We talked to Randy Poe about moral Bucko autobiography and Buck and moral both. Come out of the Bakersfield scene but proceeds moral and buck achieves countries to superstardom. I but other Than Hee haw which is a different thing. Never really comes. Close to the kind of breakthrough into the cultural consciousness. That haggard makes my theory. Is that that buck. Never created a legend. He made a Lotta great songs but they don't add up to anything. They don't tell a story whereas haggard is constantly from the beginning telling a story you've got the theme of freedom which you mentioned and we've already talked about the political thing and we're going to get into the. Mama tried in Hungary is he. He sort of becomes a poet for the Oki's The diaspora of Oki's that move West to California during the depression. And but I WANNA hear we're GONNA play one song and then I'm going to ask you about Merle's relationship to the to the oak and this is hungry eyes. Merle haggard one of the songs where he established himself as the poet laureate of the Oak Diaspora in California covered. Cabin crowded. Davor can stand in this memory..

Tuning Up: Gibson Guitars Sings Sweeter Song
"AH from wondering I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily happy Friday France. Maybe one of the things things you look forward to on the weekend is going to hear some music or perhaps playing some of your own today to celebrate our three hundred episode of business wars daily. We're going to take take a look at two icons of the Guitar Business Gibson Guitar and fender recently our sister show business wars to deep dive into their decades long rivalry and today we're going to catch you up on where the two are now. Gibson guitars been on a rocky road to say the least the company was founded in nineteen o two and named after Kalamazoo Michigan Inventor Orville Gibson over the decades it became known for its high quality instruments particularly guitars played by Les Paul Elvis Presley Jimmy Page and bb be king among many others less Paul of course had a guitar named after him but in recent decades Gibson Star began fading in the nineteen eighties instrument sales slowed as kids chose synthesizers and video games over guitar strings over time that trend continued by the early two thousands more and more musicians composing and making music digitally under CEO Henry Jessica Gibson attempted a risky strategy to try to reduce Gibson's reliance on selling mainstream mainstream guitars. He wanted Gibson to become what he called a music lifestyle company with that as its New Strategy Jessica wits lead Gibson into buying buying an assortment of consumer electronics businesses making head bones turntables in speakers but what about guitars will according to the Nashville Tennessee and between twenty ten in two thousand fifteen the company's sales grew from three hundred million dollars to over two billion dollars but the business model was hollow just go lewitt's had also tried to reinvent his electric guitar business pioneering several attention-getting innovation some of which like a rocket shaped guitar and electronic robot tuning. Learning machines were mostly rejected by guitar purists. Many Gibson loyalists complained that quality dropped prices rose in by two thousand fifteen profit margin's dropped to a meager four percent meanwhile Gibson's most famous rival thunder was doing quite well founded by a Radio Repairman in an instrument lover named Leo Fender Back in Nineteen forty-six vendor is famous for its stratocaster and telecaster guitars. The company also invented an electric bass. Call the P. Base the precision bass which became a foundation for rock and roll like Gibson fenders instruments appeared in the hands of world famous artists from country to our beat Iraq in the nineteen eighties eighties and nineties fender custom crafted guitars for Jimmy Page Eric Clapton Jeff Beck Merle Haggard Stevie Ray Vaughan and the list goes on while Jessica Woodson his team were pursuing doing an aggressive strategy that took the company away from its core business fender to was expanding but in an arguably healthier less flashy fashion the company added Digital Products Guitar Students along with upgraded amplifiers and other basics by early twenty eighteen gibson was in debt to the tune one of half a billion dollars and filed for chapter eleven bankruptcy protection some wondered whether this would be Gibson Swansong or if the one hundred sixteen year old company could be saved last October Gibson name new leadership and the company emerged from bankruptcy now. It's getting back to basics. No more rockets shaped guitars electronic robot tuners crazy futuristic takes on its mainstay. Les Paul Guitar Today.
