"M. J. X. and CBS news this is take out with major Garrett as I'm sure you've seen the president's own former chief of staff general Kelly has stated that he believes jumble but more importantly he also recognizes the importance of calling John Bolton as a witness of swearing in men of letting the senators here from this out themselves that very relevant testimony that's the voice of Adam Schiff currently the house intelligence committee chairman our guest this week is Jim Jordan Republican from Ohio frequents rhetorical combatants with Adam Schiff I'd like to get your response congressman Jordan to what you just heard I was at a press conference that Adam Schiff any other house managers have after the White House counsel concluded its opening statements in the impeachment trial Dolly does he believe John Bolton to testify but he quotes John Kelly former chief of staff to the president saying I believe John Bolton he should testify yeah I mean look at like like I said before someone tells near times what John Bolton's draft management supposedly says and and we're supposed to stop the presses stopped everything he's got a contest but I just don't buy it and John Callies voice mean anything to you in this manner a not really I mean look I think the facts are so clearly on the president's side if John Bolton testifies it doesn't has flies not gonna change funnel fact he's for facts have not change will not change will never change at the at the we got the transcript of the call something the Democrats did think the president would it was actually released a transcript he released the transcript can see clearly there was no quid pro quo outlined on the transcript in fact second fact is that Ukrainians didn't even know aid was on hold eight had been pause for fifty five that they don't even know that at the time of the phone call third both individuals on the call I have repeatedly repeatedly said there was no pressure there was no pushing there was no linkage between release of the foreign assistance money and any type of announcement of an investigation by the prince and the most important fact is tell me what the Iranians did tell me what action they took to get the a release did they started investigation did they promise to start an investigation did they announced they were going to do an investigation it never happened so those facts never change have never changed will never change regardless of what someone thinks John Bolton's draft manuscript might say what what what job Mister Kelly thinks that Mr boldness say that doesn't change those facts so the facts on the present site the constitutional argument Mr Dershowitz pointed out Mr Dershowitz even said let's just assume that that what what Mr bone said is is in the measure that actually happened it's still not impeachable and then of course you have the whole legal due process lack of due process argument as well so those three arguments are so strong for the president we know it's not going to change the outcome he's going to be acquitted which is the right decision let's get on with that let's get this done and get back to the people's business so when you see John Bolton apparently wanting to testify he said so this manuscript suggest things that possibly could undercut the president's argument if John Kelly agreeing with them saying I believe him is this a couple all former people who work directly for the president teaming up against him and what do you think their motivations I mean these are people who work for the president he hired them also fired him right is that what this is about who knows what it knows what who knows what Mr Callies moderator there's that there's a service to our country but the the question at hand right now is this impeachment process which is divided the country for four months this impeachment process which I think will never end the Democrats have told us that our green said the day before we started the market in the Judiciary Committee out green says if the Senate doesn't convict it will not end so they are out to get this present they've been out to get him as I said before he was even elected and it will not stop we just need to understand that so let's get this this crazy impeach been ridiculous ordeal over with and let's get focus on the things that we told the American people we're going to do when Adam Schiff says I and Chuck Schumer the democratic leader in the Senate says Donald is willing to testify under oath and the president is not a Mick Mulvaney is not and others we have subpoenaed or would like to subpoena from administration won't that ought to tell you something he's willing to tell the truth under oath they're not willing to appear under oath therefore he's more believable than those who won't appear how do you respond to that although I know our whole executive privilege issue that means that this is this has a long term implications has real implications for the country in the separation of powers executive branch what what do you think is the underlying danger well you you start you start saying that people have to testify who have who who work closely with the president so then you're gonna do you gonna diminished yet the ability for the chief executive to have those candid conversations that need to take place between the president and his top advisers to get the policies done that the American people like the president to do with it when you pull the Saddam's about the sixty three million Americans who voted for president trump to get the very kind of policies done that he campaigned on when one of the things he campaigned on was he's not a big fan of foreign aid he ran on that he also said look look we we know how corrupt Ukraine is there's where one of the Ernst young said one of the three most corrupt countries on the planet and you had a new guy who gets elected all in the third quarter big keep keep actress he wants our allies to help more it's called the whole burden sharing in a how many times you mentioned chancellor Merkel you need to do more Germany to help with with our allies in this area so those were key things he ran on he was trying to implement those policies especially in light of the Lynskey the new guy he was the TV personality comedian to get selected a rant on eighty corruption platform let's see if this guy's legit so for fifty five days we checked him out and guess what I'm convinced he's legit I actually think he's a genuine reformer and so was the president because we had four key meetings between senior US officials and presidents Lynskey and you saw the Ukrainians the new people his new party elected the in in the right of the parliament begin to take the actions they said they were going to do so let me ask you about that from evidentiary point of view several of your colleagues I think you're very good working relationships with Mike McCall he has an office just down the hall from your mac Thornberry those are significant voices within the house Republican Party on matters of national security Ron Johnson is a senator from Wisconsin you know him well I think you may have worked with him a good man just those three but there are others during this fifty five day period I had their staff contact people at the office of management budget looking for explanations on the hold of the military assistance congressionally appropriated signed by the president and yet in the evidentiary record there's no mention in the responses to the staffers working on behalf of these people you respect and work alongside about the two issues just identified burden sharing and corruption if those were the reasons all long why couldn't those people working in cook cook general collaboration with the present to the Republicans get those answers I mean if the edges were so clear and vivid why didn't ever get them for them the answer's respond on the call no no but if you wanted to know this kind of but but but it in his email conversations they never got that explanation and it seems to me that would have been an easy explanation for the office of management and budget or the Pentagon or someone to provide they could provided so it seems to me they were uncertain why the aid was being upheld we'll do it with the understand what is also going on this is so tightly help was arrested and nobody else knew there's a government wide look at foreign aid in general there there was that they were studying but that meant on sept well I wasn't itching we when we depose David Hale secretary at that that undersecretary T. department state he talked about the extensive study they were doing and in a broad sense on foreign aid so that was there but the president is on the call he mentions is concerned about burden sure he brings up he brings up chancellor Merkel too it presents Lynskey and it in and now the eye it's in the second page of the call we're present list he's talking about we're gonna drain the swamp here like you're doing in in the United States wouldn't be more believable from an evidence report if you would have more but first the president's argument if in these email conversations that staffers empowered by legitimate members of Congress asking a specific question about something we have a long standing interest in the administration said you know what it's a review it's a burden sharing issue and it's a corruption thing all these things seem to meet could have been communicated communicate rapidly and been consistent with this yeah argument which Democrats say wasn't the real reason at all it's a post game rationale to obscure what this really was about which was about leverage to get political investigations and the like but a couple things that ignore some some key facts like the August thirty first phone call that senator Johnson had with the president where the center Johnson says look we think we things Lynskey is worth the risk we face very strong on that very strong and ms big cat present I'm getting in the presence face a little bit and senator Johnson was getting ready to travel to it has an important meeting with let's get along with Democrat senator a Murphy but in that conversation the presses run if you're gonna like our decision so the present was already starting to become more convinced that you know what this this this once the guy is a genuine if he's the real deal he's legit we're actually going to and in the present was communicated that to center after a pretty pretty good exchange and what else did what else of the present mission to senator Johnson a call he said Ron Jeremy thinks which boxes were painted all they will pay so he brought up the burden sharing issue with senator Johnson few days later center Johnson goes to the meeting and remember this is in early September when their end keep him in center Murphy and the Ukrainians already no eight is been PA they never bring up that the fact that they have to announce investigation to get the it did the linkage never come if ever there was an opportunity for to come out that would in the moment because had a bi partisan centers who are devoted to release the money that was the moment and that they don't bring it up so this this idea there was all this pressure for them to make an announcement just doesn't pan out the facts do not demonstrate at all in fact they should just the op that's voice of Jim Jordan we will continue our conversation about a peach and other issues on the other side of the break I major Garrett.

"Gov look you really shouldn't loiter in bookstores don't worry intern bookstore and you see a copy of entertaining Chicago all I ask you to do is pick it up and read the relatively short introduction by Gary Johnson who is the president of what I will always call the Chicago Historical Society and also the short kind of introductory segments by Neil stammers and Bob dauber and then you will walk up to the cash register and give them a credit card or if you still carry that stuff called cash because of right there all three pieces are very evocative and sort of loving and passionate about system used to be and one of the subtext of what you gentlemen of done deals Amerson Bob daughter is capture an era that can never ever be repeated economics mostly right well he's the I I said this of the several people but you had to have enough money in in back in the fifties and sixties to take dates are to go to work because the shaper rainy or go to Mr Callies ago these placer London house but it was just just going downtown and am going downtown men men going in to the balcony cast theaters and then the restaurants as you said and then so many other things in Chicago there was so much it was so many placement attainment including this whole sports section that I put in sure sure when he was talking about having the money to go I was telling the other day I went to my junior prom and senior prom on poker winnings had I not won the but I think the going was not any into talking about the economics of it you could not you can not have even though she was a an early start at the time you could not have let's say mort sol forming in a night club to to mortals still alive you couldn't have him performing in a night club that he couldn't had surprising you can have that elephants Gerald racing on the corner of Russian Bellevue the economics of driven there were not arenas there was not you know this Chicago stadium in these other in revenge and these other places the economic sort of killed the intimacy there there get out of your intimacy one of the things I get out of your book is the in the intimacy that existed in these clubs you could sit you know one table away from Bonnie colonic or Steve good men at the Earl of old town and a number of other you do everything in here and you couldn't I hate hate hate great America and why do I hated because I tasted Riverview you must right in your chapter about do a chapter about amusement parks and certainly the white city gets a paragraph yeah they're very few people around them read me who would remember white city but a lot of people remember Riverview and they remember with stylish and fun is don't they nail absolutely and then there are there are a few interviews and hear people talking about how they work there how the and the rise in in on and and they have loving strong memories and especially how the old men would give out tickets to the kids of the schools in error just like just like the loving memories about Wrigley Field in Comiskey park would you get when you did get Shelly Howard who is kind of the unofficial mayor of rush St in a fascinating guy goes on and on and on about the error again which I think is one of the it's in your ballrooms chapter the spheroid the tree and on he goes on and on about the the Eragon which is owned not it's still around but it's not quite what it once was his his interview his I interviewed people I've ever heard of and actually tin cans Arensky charter second city alone remember the doctor Jack but off key characters okay Tim turned me on to Shelly Howard initially jacket Askey son Eric actually turned me on to a lot of the people that ultimately wound up in this book and Shelly Howard was one of them Ben Hollis was another one yeah people I didn't notice will with them yes yeah yeah so that was great because he served really as a conduit to introducing us to a lot of folks who never even find in interviewing these people a sense of worth a wistful about yes yeah yeah just wonderful you know when people talked about the jazz club that don't exist anymore how the south side was and how whites and blacks could be together on this outside know what is the holder of the doesn't exist so the people from the thirties and the forties and fifties have a wonderful wistful memories about any night or day of the day any time that you could go to these clubs and feel very safe and never worry about it some people just need to know that what you have in her corky Siegel who who would you cleaners corky Siegel on because like Mike Bloomfield who's dead now the book but who would who would go down and somehow got the blues in their system is kids growing up in the north shore suburbs white kids growing up in our church overage I got to hear this live and they would go down and they were welcomed at these places right Harold Ramos by the way was one yeah right these stories about how he went down to the jazz clubs and just loved it and then you know that and then then the near north side and all these things in old town so much of what we have today just doesn't exist didn't it doesn't exist anymore why I know part of it is is economics but I think these days there is that sense that there is this next new thing and you gotta go grab that and and there's there's not going to be the durability of some of these places to day lot of it happens because of their splash just a splash that occurs you know and if it doesn't get any kind of legs when we forget it when you mention corky probably the greatest story that I got from him was in who is he he was either appearing at quiet night or early hold on one or two and he said that every night there was a Japanese gentleman that would come into the club user was every night that night after nine this look when I feel like a couple weeks and he moved over to another venue and the Japanese guy followed him finally after performance tonight the Japanese guy came up to him and said I'd like you to play with my band he's a loser band Chicago symphony orchestra come on that's how chamber blue started while yeah it's a great story family respected courage great great stories another great story in the book or just some of the great stories from the past was a Arlo Guthrie was in town with a quiet night playing one night we sat down this kid came over to him and said look at can I play a song an early go through said well you buy me a beer you can play muse song and when you got to be over finished by the time the beers over and that's when Steve Goodman get laid him city of New Orleans they're just well there's so many good stories in this book again the title of the book is entertaining Chicago remembering the places performers and stories throughout the twentieth century they have in the book to there's of of vast section near the back some of course there's a comedy club section featuring zanies all jokes aside and the majority of the time getting to the second city how influential do you both I want you both to answer this is it how influential was second city no I think sex is that it was probably the most influential comedy club in the country and when you start taking people came out of there and went into radio and TV and sex and and seven at live in all these people who came there and and just how how that all came out of you know the compass players and and just the whole history is very very very rich and the people get that from this book yeah the ripple effect of second city is is on going in tremendous I just so you know Tina fey in a car commercial well but when you always talk about the cost of the compass players yeah we sure when I was in high school had an older brother may he rest by her older brother and he and two of his friends were singers and a trio singing trio at the compass theater so I would go over there when I was here was like fifteen sixteen years old and on a certain topic Shelley Berman you know and you know Nichols may came out of there are always people get out of there so now talk about influential second city absolutely but prior to that compass I also think them you can you can argue that that Chicago can argue Chicago's influence on the blues you can argue Chicago's influence on folk you cancel March argue its influence on rock music there were some rock clubs yes but it was not the breeding ground for six months six came out of the south side of Chicago Chicago okay another ship that's right on their jazz rock not a big fan of Chicago we will after we don't have news anymore we'll have something at the at the end of this hour it was lovely the one of the loveliest interviews and here's with Hefner who've I've interviewed a number of times yes and I also want to talk about too I would be remiss not to talk about our mutual pal Judy Roberts has you took pictures of right years and years ago well hi so Judy when I was in college we go back a bit Danny and she is she's she's just a delightful character sometimes you want to put a collar on her you know to just to steer her came to where you wanted to be but just in a very giving person fabulous tale of course and I've become fairly good friends with Greg her husband great Ashland the yeah teachers saxophonist a saxophone yeah and I belong to an organization organization called the jazz education at work and I go to the conference every January and Greg is always there as either a rap for one of the musical instrument companies so yeah we get to hang with him a bit to work just nice people and people and four we take a break and forty five seconds I have a feeling that this book for both of you brought back astonishing memories of your teenage and you're really youthful years well tell you very quickly the picture of the stately of the Chicago theater answer and say street was a picture of a of a of a movie was playing when I went out senior prom so it's there that's great if you can write a book that makes you your own M. makes you some money that would be a grand thing is entertaining for money of our money remember in the play helpless plumbers and stories of the twentieth century Neil stammers and Bob dauber the authors will be back to talk more to them one talk about a couple specific things mostly the people are always think of of sports is entertainment and that's because of I think mostly because the bears who are anything but entertaining towards you know we'll talk a little about sports when we come back.

I DO days you can see the other girlfriend. and so on but you can't see both and at the same time okay. in jail or prison is not being in a luxury resort where you can see whoever you want whenever you want however you want in whatever conditions you want. I would say he should consider himself fortunate that he can see either one of them. at any time you know under the circumstances of the very serious charges. in this case alone sex trafficking Rico. which is a racketeering influenced corrupt organizations act. these are serious charges and he he also made an argument about his medical condition that is feeling stressed. most people in prison who feel stressed it's not. that is upset about not being able to see his girlfriend so Mister Kelly lives with two women these are his family. and the rules of the jail say your family can visit but there are chemicals they say that your wife your husband your mother your father your sister your brother your kids can visit but your domestic partner isn't covered in the role your girlfriends are covered in the rules so these are effectively as domestic partners and and come on it's two thousand nineteen they should be able to visit a. I don't think that Mr Callies being treated fairly I think that you should be out. the judge agreed with.

Woman who paid R. Kelly's $100K bond wants it back. A judge said no.

"So how about this are Kelly story today now let's talk about that this is wild so you remember back in February when R. Kelly was sitting in the cook county jail a twenty six in California after being charged with there's sex assault cases here in cook county and a mystery woman stepped forward to host a ten percent of the million dollars bond her name Valencia love she posted a hundred thousand dollars so are Kelly good could go free everyone was shocked that R. Kelly apparently didn't have the financial wherewithal to post his own bond and so this woman who owns a restaurant in blue island and I apparently met Kelly on a cruise or some place along the way steps forward and post bond for the singer. so he got to enjoy a couple of days on the outside you may remember he went straight from the cook county lock up to the old rocker home with don right downtown old cruising Spahn TV and I don't think you're supposed to say cruising spot like that well I thought it was kind of drive by and hang out outside wasn't that what yeah has he been use helicopters going going overhead etcetera well now of course a Mister Kelly is in federal custody after being hit with federal charges which supersede the local case typically and Valencia love his come forward her attorneys filed a motion in cook county saying Hey can our client get our money back she wants that hundred thousand back today a judge reportedly said no which when you think about it is a little surprising right because. bond money bail money has nothing to do with guilt or innocence is merely to basically provide some sort of collateral assuring that if we let you go you're gonna show up right corner. well he's in custody any where anytime soon but the judge said that ms love actually signed a document that says something to the effect of your money can be used in certain scenarios to pay for it for attorneys fees court costs and other things associated with this case so apparently was on that one grounds that he she's lose lose all the money. what we don't know that we don't know what would this mean R. Kelly is using that money from the woman who saved him and a tough time I think what the judge was saying is while Mr Callies finances are in question and they are. the money that was posted for bond could potentially be used to pay for his defense that's for you to read the fine print yeah. for work got to do that.

alive he is eighty eight working one of the times I saw him as someone to the Carnegie deli you did yeah I've seen him twice one once the once one of the shows would wear what trimmer where the show was anyway he did this thing works says I'm gonna go to the audience I'm gonna tell you who's a Jew who's a gentile so the only do this with the women I have no idea for the right he was right every single time a total as you say to yourself well on average you you might get half or do a little brighter but you will do you would you you know I know and then he would say some of your gentile you know I know many would say it he was right every time this one is on a he is funny I love him Kim's review of the Barbra Streisand show that's what's hot for sure and we do what's hot what's called sponsored by American whether makers heating and cooling the sixty minute man all in all you thought it was a really great yes you do evergreen yes I love that song are you going to follow her around the country in a Volkswagen obviously I'm very it you know excited about our Instagram page yeah so is that when the only stars you follow on Instagram or other ones but I just started because I knew I was going to Susan's through who which one would surprise is the most like Barbra Streisand I kinda gad who I followed her is there someone you follow that who is will make when the I go what is can follow Mike Schmidt I fly follow Aaron riders stanica Patrick well does that surprise more athletes than well the reason I follow d'amico's because she's dating Aaron Rodgers well you want to I'm not a race card that makes sense you're just jealous of her right now well they get married I don't know she was married once before but it never been married yeah the key are you on Instagram it's fun and it is fine I follow Patti Boyd who you look wonderful tonight was there in about years married to George Harrison and Eric Clapton and I love this she's got a new book out and I love following some of these sites follow one of my favorites is Katie Couric she's a lot of fun and what is she put on her Instagram well she did everything from like pictures of our kids and our trips to you know her different podcast yes she does a real variety of her personal life and her tell your life I never had strong feelings about her one way or the other another I I I respected her I thought she was great which she did but I was not in my way crazy battered and dislike or she just kind of existed and then when her husband died she she made this tour where she was talking about the importance of getting checked to make use refused okay cancer right because they said with her husband is there a suppose husbanding Jeff Jay Monahan J. money at Jeff so with with him they said that if his diagnosis would have happened three months earlier they would have saved his life but he kept putting off putting it off putting it off and if so got to me do you still wear years to get a quote but I swear just hearing that registered and I went I really do I got half yes as afraid as I am still something that so preventive yeah we're curable yeah just a couple if you would have gone in a couple months earlier they could save this is now remarried and seems very happy yeah good for her she always sounded to me like she had a tic tac in her mouth when she was talking really it's not a bit but she almost kind of had a little bit I'm holding it so it doesn't go off to the side while I'm talking it just wasn't ever going to notice it's in it's a tic tac because it's a little thing that she's just I just don't want to fly out when I'm talking so if I need it to be right there so I can keep it in its little spot isn't it funny that not that long ago the networks just flat out refused to let a woman anchor the network news they just said no will believe there's no credibility you can have a woman anchor the news and unlikely Barbara Walters and Katie Couric and a few others have done it Jane Polly Polly but but not that long ago that was the feeling now they've Nora o'donnell right right there yeah but it's one of those things where you go when did that happen a hundred and fifty years now is now twenty years ago that someone we don't hear from at all anymore as Barbara Walters it's been a while yes yeah she kind of living I mean she retired but you know yeah you haven't heard from her in awhile she used to be like if there was some if there was not a bidding war but a war to get somebody news worthy it was always down her and Diane Sawyer thanks so you're still doing things I've seen her recent yeah nobody like her I I like here's a Louisville girl yeah she is so likeable yeah I really like there are you know what the white Sox baseball is going on it's not a

of Bette Midler and Barbra Streisand hard to believe hi yes it is and then there were the pointer sisters played there too so we're we're we're going to close it with a with a fun pointer sisters number seven you will I'm assuming during the performance I'm sure Judy we'll talk about her time in there casually actually did play there and in some interviews I've done with that lovely woman over the years she's just some you could not David Marienthal be fonder of your father and your uncle Judy is a great example of of one of the many talented women that were really nurtured in these places and I guess I have to just you know and they're all came up with the idea of the women of Mr callace it was just so perfect because there were so many women that were so important to the success of the business it wasn't only these you know great performers but it was people like Arlene Rosberg who what was discovered that went to New York for my for my father and came back with the smothers brothers Woody Allen and barber strife that it would put him in a car I got for you he was pleased and you know and then it was you know the the women that ran the dining room there was you know there there was you know the dining room manager for twenty years this Estelle manage the the dining room it was two waitresses that we interviewed that you know that were there for twenty or thirty years hold on hold for you David when you realize what your father and uncle did for a living I was five years old as soon as I knew I mean I knew that they were a big deal and I knew they were going downtown and the people recognize them on the street and wanted to get in I mean this is back when I think local celebrity really was you know was more recognize who's just smaller town and there was more more local the course the not only the great women these women that were involved in a business way we have my my mother Jean Marienthal and Oscar's wife Jerry that you know that were instrumental in in in the business brand from roughly nineteen fifty four nineteen seventy five with shows virtually every night and one or two shows every night sometimes it would be a comic opening for zingers sometimes a singer opening for you know Bob Newhart you have gone out he he you show and you will be showing at city winery and Daryl very momentarily I'm gonna ask you to tell people how to get tickets but you you have created the as part of this documentary would you call a sizzle role that will give people and you'll show it Monday night a taste of the upcoming documentary this guy you will have a a taste of all our you know all our interviews including one of our latest women which was lily Tomlin we've gotten back from interviewing her last year in LA and she and she told told the story you know talking about women in times of women of helping bus the law that forbade single women from sitting at the bar yeah yeah in the early seventies that's right and so the other thing again we were taught we're featuring the singers of Mr Callies this point but the greater to bigger to die you know the great women comics that came up there Joan rivers lily Tomlin toady fields I mean these were you know ground breaking it was also in the news is did Suzanne Petri and amber now you know it is never been easy for women in night clubs anywhere in this country no I'm sure yeah maybe even worse in in the comedy scene because there were fewer of them the fairer sex this is a this is an interracial club they had no you guys were one of the first people to have there was a delay on Georgian Oscar really you know made a concerted effort to welcome you know people of all races both in terms of their staff which was saying and I know some of you out there it's hard for some of you out there to believe but but believe it that's the way Chicago was in the in the fifties that's it is really hard to believe I know that later on and I worked at the underground wonder buyer I always felt that it was a microcosm of Chicago because it was also very interracial online and and and the woman could go in there and sit at the bar and I've got friends who always told me that is like I never felt uncomfortable yeah but that was in the eighties right so when you go into the seventies I remember my my boss Danny Miller would say you can't have a man by your drink is in your vehicle yeah right sure yeah because there were you know the the those kinds of clubs on rush street in hell yes there were but that was yeah so earlier there so I hope you know Judy will tell some stories but there are you too I think that I think that is something to punctuate this evening of song that you're going to have how can people get takes aren't many left how can there and so the you can go to city winery and you have to choose Chicago so city winery Chicago on then it's because the show's tomorrow as like the the first thing I'm thing yeah that's there also if you just I I

know who's left don't laugh at yourself ladies and gentlemen lake beds it's an honor to even be on your set and throw chickens and do the hand and so forth that I know they're special guests that randomly do that but it is for those who do it it's an honor to be there well that's that's nice to hear and I mean we do we have all sorts of people who always ask you can I can throw chickens yeah who who would have thought that that would be something that would be one thing to do the things that I've been here in Chicago the new set which is over five years old the five years old now yes your thirty three summers yeah that's when we brought the exhibit the relying as we move the old over the over the storage that's right that's right yeah it is well it is a storage right now but we'll talk about that a little bit but then the riddle coffin was Jerry's coffin yes it was it was originally his his first off it was actually a lay down one that was like Gary would understand he'd have people were the guest coffin openers he gets celebrities who went to places like Mr Callies in the blue Max old you know like clubs around here many have them sign it and we ended up bringing that wants to an appearance I made a son a spindly at the old Will Rogers theater while and while somehow we never got it back so I don't know if it's all gone or if somebody has if anybody knows contact seventy two hundred would be great but yeah the the one that that is now in the museum was cherries and when I started for the first couple shows the still had his spindly chase on it and somebody so what you should do some of us so I painted my face on there right now I paint my face but but it was but it was a real coffin no no it was no it was made by by and one of the St chance their body Walker okay because I OP now when I was over there at the museum with Alex we are in the back is it's in kind of flux right now into a hunk of the fortieth anniversary version of the exhibit effort temporary exhibit and I opened it yet I know very carefully you have to be very you have to hold it very gently because it's forty years old yeah and when they were building that kind of stuff nobody expected to last more than a few years who thought yeah you know that the show would last my six year old to death is he in there like a question they got a genie bottle yes the same thing is she in there now spell I'm in the bottle with third I'm not personally in my life let's start a rumor I like it I like that no but the original set is going to be rebuilt in in the fall we have a we have a rock in politics is the color than words in there right now this to be a rock and TV exhibit debuting October along with a fortieth anniversary version of this Bingley civic and I believe we're going to be doing an event to celebrate your forty years final deal it'll be a great tie how cool as always let me let me ask you the last forty years what would you say to to you the top three universal horror flicks enter your favorite your personal favorites and three horror films in general that you would say are your favorite that are outside of the universal universal well well from the universal ones it's kind of a tie for one of them between Frankenstein bride of Frankenstein with bright afraid I get a little bit of the edge it was freaky and I remember watching them creature features in the beginning when I saw her old man what is this yeah and it's original Dracula and then and I I have to say creature from the black lagoon I always loved that yeah we went to see you Josh I maybe ten twelve years ago at the portage theater when you were there was a horror of banter convention of some sort we're Dracula was flying right and I remember that weeks later they were playing the werewolf and Josh would not go because that's the one character that free to muscle today thank you out it's creepy it's the just turns old for hearing aids Kurds tears well I think part of that is is just the fact that the animalistic savagery of of the wolf man yes well you know new here hearing this you know they have their throat torn out it's like you know when you're watching Frankenstein they're not going well you know he'd rip their head off or something it's like you know they had his throat torn out like by a wall for an animal and it's like oh no and usually the shows aired late at night so now you're dealing with the atmosphere of where you're applying it is right yeah and I remember when I was about Josh's age at the time and and in the afternoon when I think of channel seven ran the afternoon horror movies I was a teenage werewolf again Michael Landon doesn't sound scary but boy I was terrified we act like you're in your parent's basement you're watching a minute what time yeah oh yeah the where will definitely creepy what movie did you have the most fun adding spend that surround or a big last two there was a movie that we ran it was a terrible movie as I think track of the vet who don't have what track of the vampire and it was a terrible movie part of it was made like in some place like Yugoslavia the other half was made in LA and I think neither side knew what the other was doing so I hated that movie with a passion there was like a seven minute or five minute segment where is this girl during the is dancing on the beach and they did you know like you know S. too but they all like five this is segment thing in there with her dancing and it's like looking through a fly's eye and it drew flies believe and it was just so awful and so we decided okay we're gonna do some things to it so there is one whole segment where the cold vampire is chasing this girl through the streets so I read up the whole thing and she was supposed to be a girl who didn't want to go to her swim the practice and the other guy was her coach and chased her all through this and I'm doing you know stupid lines for the whole thing we doubled it up and finally they get to the beach where she goes into the water and there was like a bald guy who's in it so I medium curly from the three Stooges and is so we do that and then there was a hello a good friend of mine the late Mike Smith who was a film editor there it was a quite the conspirator so at one point he added in just a whole bunch of stuff all these clips from movies and things and and I believe it was in that movie and is this all these fan and at one point there's Liberace going and thank you very much it's a wonderful thing to be in Chicago cut to Martin and Lewis and Dean Martin going Chicago and this went on for maybe about three or four minutes and all this stuff and today I'm sure we could never do anything like that simply because you know everybody would be suing as raises a pair of but we had a good time with that one but they keep right divide you knew that was the source sure yeah yeah yes I can you stick around worse yet where am I going to do all the time what am I going to all right the Stooges are back I'd be TV really talk about that with rich because Jim Roach just player also hanging out is rich celebrates the fortieth anniversary as Bingley all next on seven twenty.
