"mr willy" Discussed on Bill Cunningham
"Cincinnati Cunningham. The Great American Jeff Pastor Live and city council. Today's the day that a lot of opening up throughout the city of Cincinnati and throughout the Tri State and Jeff Pastor. Welcome again to the Bill Cunningham. Show Jeff how're you doing how you doing? Great American Mr Willy. Great afternoon to be an American first of all before we talk about so many issues including patios opening and that kind of stuff I may find myself tonight at is walking around and see what's going on by the way How's how's the how's the west end coming with the new soccer stadium when I drive by? It's amazing is coming out of the ground. Looks like it's going to happen. Is the Western community excited? I'm I mean I mean it looks really. The neighborhood seems to be picking up. It seems to be vibrant Everything seems to be on time and under budget now. I have a text here from taxpayer just as slept lives in mount lookout tells me that when the bus tax passed on announcement was yesterday or the day before that part of the deal was that the income tax in the city. Cincinnati would go from two point one to one point eight percent however he also said that will never happen now. Those on city council use the covid nineteen as an excuse to raise it back up to two point one percent. Do you see that happening. I do see that. They're probably amongst my tactics. Fan Friend COUNSEL. I do see that as a possibility But my coaches at City Hall has always been Tackled as low as we. Can I think that having the lowest income tax rate which? I'm of the School of thought that you shouldn't be taking folks income tax income anyway before they receive it. I'm of the School of thought Mr Cunningham. We should get even lower you know and we should fund our figure out another way to fund our. Government. But I'M GONNA be fighting against Any increase in the income tax and. I'm pretty sure that they're the large portion of Cincinnatian who feels the same way that we're we're barking much We have extremely high property taxes. This you know. You WanNa go home. You GotTa Pay Property Tax. We're talking about working class people who are just trying to make a living. You got disinvestment in there. I mean you you have all of these things going on last thing that we need is higher income tax We're we're GONNA retired about sixty million dollars to the citizens of Cincinnati and I think that's a win because when one looks about where to locate a business where to go and work one looks always at the taxes the rules the regulations things that character and when you have a now a sales tax in Hamilton county close to eight percent and then two point one percent of the city of Cincinnati. And I'm with you at one point. Eight percent is not going to be enough for the Liberals on council. They're going to Jack. It back up to two point one percent and then when you have a bus system and every now and then. I might find myself riding. A bus. Haven't done it many decades. Who knows in the future You know in General Jeff Pastor. I'm in favor of public transportation for a lot of middle class and lower middle class Americans. They can't get to work. Can't get to the doctor. Generally in favor of that but over the next ten years the taxpayers. They're going to spend about one billion dollars to buy buses and bus routes one billion plus thirty million dollars a year over the next ten years. Three hundred million dollars. Are there enough buses to buy for a billion dollars over the next ten years Justin Hamilton county to me? That looks like a gross overreach. So half of the money that that that you're you're saying the eighth Percents that we're going to see is pay for those who live outside of county that's important To to mission also use namely one city in the state of Ohio. Then it's cut income tax right. You don't have because we cut income tax Really what we're doing aggressively pursuing company's headquarters themselves right here in the city of Natty and then why is that important to have a good transportation system because at any good Republican? Tell you I want you to pull yourself about Busa if you can't afford a car which is because you gotta to get gas. You have the risk that you take their. We want you to be able to get from your bed to your job to your Doctor's appointment to your appointment and wanted to get back home because we want you working. We want the city in. We want people. Investing and businesses overwhelmingly has said that transportation is a barrier to a lot of the people who live in Hamilton County who live in the city of Cincinnati. Now I WANNA point out. Is that most of our county is made up of working class folks. A majority of them are working class. White folks and class black folks so this is a non racial issue. This is the issue of class. This the issue of these folks want to work. This is the issue of college student. Wants to enter out there and my role and have a quick ride my a road. This is about Guinea businesses to invest in the city of Cincinnati and registered show whether it's Kansas City or whether any other city when you invest transportation and job begins to relocate there the city begins to grow and and and I am proud to say that I'd say and voted for a tax cut which is store in the city of Cincinnati and put more money back into business. Pockets IS GONNA put more money into the working class family pocket and now they're going to be able to put money in their pocket and it's been a dollar or two to take thirty minutes or ten minutes to get across house and get to their jobs and babies aren't going to be able to go to baseball practice and kids are going to be able to go to rant play and it's GonNa be a great day in the city of Philippi when all of this and that's not forget. The infrastructure the infrastructure the infrastructure. Be WESTERN HEELS. Viaduct the rose and have money for roads. Now these are things that Republicans have championed the White Eisenhower which is my favorite president by the way we are now what? Republicans have been arguing for the time we are giving people are to pick themselves up about a boost up now. I WANNA ASK YOU ABOUT THE STREETCAR. Talk about public transportation. You didn't vote for it but Kevin Flynn did and many others counts of. Pg voted for it and seal voted for it and Two or three others. David Mann voted for it. And do you support the idea of asking the trump administration? Forgive that fifty five or sixty million dollars. I am for anything that's going to. I mean we already called. The triumvirate of doom at the street was a waste of our tax payer dollars I think there could have been better uses to improve multi mode of transportation in the city and whatever we can do to get off the hook. I am absolutely positively willing to do. I mean that's just like an albatross around the city especially when we're laying seventeen hundred workers with China forty. You know what I mean I. It was a bad investment. And I don't think that my my brother sisters at lobby for transportation but I'll be my brothers. Sisters would admit that it was just a bad investment people. See it as a tool of classism That it just it just goes into one point my my loop as so whatever we can do to get off the I willing to do. I think the president has been a short Mary when it comes to things and I think people honestly should really take a look and listen to what he has to say about transportation. Most people don't do that but but trump has been exceptionally positive about transportation. Company had become from you know a large city like New York City transportation is incredibly important for them and I think as a business owner businessman. He understands the need for transportation what to say that because we have a need for that. We're going to spend it on a tree. Car is going to say that we're talking about a fast train to get me from Chicago in our to me from here to Cleveland or they give me from here at Mason and and cut the traffic on seventy absolutely in fact. There wasn't a plan. Tony Bender talks about a plan about sixteen years ago. Then had like Light Rail connecting Warren County and Kent County and connecting the airport to Fountain Square. That thing made no sense so instead we spent hundreds of MILLIONS OF DOLLARS ON A STREETCAR. Nowhere now that was stupid. And you know the the cost to do that. At the time I believe in two thousand I think mood The plan to do that at the time. You know with a connected this whole region you have fans you know folks would have been able to get out to that manufacturing jobs for their distribution jobs. You've been able to get off a plane and get right over to downtown Cincinnati An and quite frankly it's one of one of the many reasons why we lost out on the Amazon because we just do not have the epicenter. So my thing isn't that we decided to do that. And we decided to go and build a streetcar which I think was just a bad investment. I think we know what's the bad investment at the time Strange use of taxpayer dollars and this is why it is important that the citizens behind the leaders who are going to take the charge like myself that we fight with everything. That's in these. Do not go for one point. Eight to two point one percent incredibly important. Because I'm telling you that businesses are going to look at Cincinnati now that we have gone through chapter station. We're GONNA improve rose. We have the University of Cincinnati Xavier. Mount Saint Joe. We have all of the things that are going backwards. Yeah CENTRIFUGE FIFTY TAX. Everything that we're looking for now right and the last thing that we need to do is hike up the city income tax. So what we need to do is figure out how you're going to. I mean we have to be some pain because of the pandemic of course Williams is. We have to work carefully to make sure that we're balancing the need for business growth and economic development growth without running people waiting. Matthew we lost macy's Matthew wearing pants we've saying economic downturn proctor and gamble. We have all these. You know Gee We all these things. We can't just go raise the taxes and think that that's going to be the healthiest that's working class. People need in fact you know if my mother was living and I tell them she make a forty thousand dollars a year she could you eight hundred bucks in her pocket to go to her children to feed her family to to upkeep on her nineteen eighty nine hub at the five. I mean these are real life. Examples of how money is going to be returned to the working class people on the website. It's not in the inner city of fifty nine inhale even on the east side of Cincinnati in California but we need to do is make sure that folks are thinking in terms of the common man and comedy woman the Common Man. I'm the voice of the common man for God's Sakes yes you my friend. You're the voice for the common man and now I don't want to learn how to become a millionaire like you Mr Cunningham. But you could teach me how to be a millionaire coming mass but but what we need to do is we need to make sure that we are we. Are you know five tuning our budget? So that we don't run away and that folks they get employed because businesses are relocating to the city. Now Geoffrey Pastor.

He may come back and do you ever talk to them about the mistake of spending hundreds of millions of dollars for the Streetcar Nowhere. Do they acknowledge it was wrong or do they want to change the subject matter? They say matter. I you know my thing is is that Alive man told me you know the proof in the pudding. Sometimes you don't need to say a word Mr Cunningham. I just gotTa let things play out and what we're seeing the streetcar is that it you know. I image thousand words. Every time the Streetcar Mpn City of Cincinnati I mean that. That's that's the more than anything could ever say my father now.

"mr willy" Discussed on Bill Cunningham
"Cincinnati. Cunningham the great. American Jeff Pastor live and city council. Today's the day that a lot of. Our opening up throughout the city of Cincinnati and throughout the Tri State and Jeff, pastor welcome again to the bill. Cunningham, show Jeff, how're you? Doing how you doing great American Mr Willy. Great afternoon to be an American first of all before we talk about so many issues, including patios opening and that kind of stuff I may find myself tonight at. Is Walking around and see what's going on by the way How's how's the? Incoming with the new soccer stadium when I drive by, it's amazing is coming out of the ground looks like it's going to happen. Is the Western community excited? I'm I. Mean I mean it looks really. The neighborhood seems to be picking up. It seems to be vibrant. everything seems to be on time and under budget. Now I have a text here from taxpayer. Just as slept lives in Mount Lookout that tells me that when the bus tax passed on. Announcement was yesterday or the day before that part of the deal was that the income tax in the city Cincinnati would go from two point one to one point eight percent. However, he also said that will never happen now. Those on city council use the covid nineteen as an excuse to raise it back up to two point one percent. Do you see that happening? I do see that they're probably amongst my tax fan, Friend Council I. Do see that as a possibility but my coaches at City Hall has always been to cut taxes as low as we can. I think that having the. Income, tax rate which I'm of the School of thought that you shouldn't be taking folks income tax. Income Anyway before they receive it. I'm of the School of thought. Mr. Cunningham We should get even lower you know and we should fund our figure out another way to fund our government, but fighting against any increase in the income tax and I'm pretty sure that they're the large portion of Cincinnatian. Who feels the same way that we're? We're barking much We have extremely high property taxes. The taxes are. you know you WANNA go home. You gotTA, pay. Property Tax. We're talking about working class. People who are just trying to make a living. You got disinvestment in there. I mean you you have all of these things going on last thing that we need is higher income tax we're. We're GONNA. Retired about sixty million dollars to the citizens of Cincinnati and I think that's a win. Because when one looks about where to locate a business where to go and work one looks always at the taxes, the rules the regulations things that character, and when you have a now, a sales tax in Hamilton, county close to eight percent and then. Then two point, one percent of the city of Cincinnati and I'm with you. At one point. Eight percent is not going to be enough for the Liberals on council. They're going to Jack it back up to two point one percent, and then when you have a bus system and every now and then I might find myself riding a bus haven't done it many decades. Who knows in the future You know in General Jeff Pastor. I'm in favor of public transportation for a lot of middle class and lower middle class Americans. They can't get to work can't get to the doctor. Generally in favor of that, but over the next ten years, the taxpayers they're going to spend about one billion dollars to buy buses and bus routes, one billion plus thirty million dollars a year over the next ten years three hundred million dollars. Are there enough buses to buy for a billion dollars over the next ten years? Justin Hamilton county to me that looks like a gross overreach. Half of the money that that that you're, you're saying the eighth percents that we're going to see pay for those who live outside of county that's important to to mission also use namely one city in the state. Of Ohio. Then it's cut income tax, right? You don't have because we cut income tax really what we're doing. Aggressively, pursuing company's headquarters themselves right here in the city of Natty, and then why is that important to have a good transportation system? Because I any good Republican? Tell you. I want you to pull yourself about Busa if you can't afford a car, which is because you gotta discharge got gas. You have the risk that you take their. We want you to be able to get from your bed to your job to your doctor's appointment to your appointment and wanted to get back home because we want you working, we want. Want the city moving. We want people. Investing and businesses overwhelmingly has said that transportation is a barrier to a lot of the people who live in. Hamilton County who live in the city of Cincinnati. Now I WANNA. Point out is that most of our county is made up of working class folks. A majority of them are working class, white folks and class black folks, so this is a non racial issue. This is the issue of class this the issue of these folks want to work. This is the issue of college. College. Student wants to enter out there and my role and have a quick ride 'cause. I still a role. This is about getting businesses to invest in the city of Cincinnati and registered show whether it's Kansas City, or whether any other city when you invest transportation and job begins to relocate there. The city begins to grow, and and and I am proud to say that I'd say and voted for a tax cut, which is store in the city of Cincinnati, and put more money back into business pockets is GONNA put more. More money into the working class family pocket, and now they're going to be able to put money in their pocket, and it's been a dollar or two to take thirty minutes or ten minutes to get house and get to their jobs and babies aren't going to be able to go to baseball. Practice and kids are going to be able to go to rant play, and it's GonNa be a great day in the city of Philippi. When all of this, and that's not forget the infrastructure, Willie, the infrastructure, the infrastructure be. Western heels viaduct, the rose and have money for rose now. These are things that Republicans have championed the White Eisenhower which is my favorite president. By the way we are now doing what Republicans have been arguing for the time. We are giving people. To pick themselves up about a boost up. Now I WANNA. Ask You about the Streetcar Talk About Public Transportation You didn't vote for it, but Kevin Flynn did and many others counts of PG voted for it and seal voted for it and Two or three others David Mann voted for it, and do you support the idea of asking the trump administration forgive that fifty five or sixty million dollars? I am for anything that's going to get I. Mean we already called the triumvirate of? The Streetcar was a waste of our tax payer. Dollars I. Think there could have been better uses to improve multi mode of transportation in the city. And whatever we can do to get off the hook. I am absolutely positively willing to do. I mean that's just like an albatross around the city especially when we're laying on seventeen hundred workers. With China, forty. You know what I mean I. It was a bad investment and I don't think that my my brother sisters at lobby for transportation, but I'll be my brothers. I would admit that it was just a bad investment. People see it as a tool of classism that it just it just goes into one point my my loop as whatever we can do to get off the I willing to..

"Is heavy stuff in it is and should be it needs to be because that's what it is and this is your life doesn't get any bigger heavier than that. This doesn't have to overwhelm you. It just has to consume you in a manner that you really take it seriously and you take decisive action. So the decisive part is step one. Where am I And choosing where you WANNA go right so if it's where you are now great step two is now going to actually take steps to improve and I'm GonNa Practice and really GonNa take it to the next level in step three is get a mentor. Make sure you're not asking your boyfriend girlfriend or mother or father how you sound or how you look or how your business is going. Because chances are they'll say great and that won't be the case you need right now a mentor. You need guidance. You need someone or some group that will say to you. You know. Look No. That's not really that's not really how it is. That's like no you're you're you don't you don't sound as good as you think. Or you know. It doesn't groove or doesn't you know or doesn't feel like this feel like that's you can go back to step two and keep fine tuning it and that's how you're really going to accelerate your growth and then with those three steps when this is over and you have to get back to the real world and no longer will you have all the time in the world. You will have had explosive transformation. And that's what I wish for everybody. man very well sad and I think just jumping off that last point of It's a slippery slope of working in isolation like you said because you you think that you may sound great but you don't want to go in practice the wrong thing for three months and then go boy practice the wrong thing so having those check ins where fortunately we live in time now where you can connect with people for free via like zoom or whatever the APPS you want us to video chat and And I think people are everyone's at home that's the beauty and I'm like I'm like cleaning up with interviews because everyone's at home and they can't escape me so I'm right we will. That's you know that's the way it should be. You're doing you're doing exactly. What is the best thing you could be doing? Is that the. That's one of your passions is to have this podcast an through drum history. Podcast bring you know the these various people in subjects to the world At no cost and And now the access that you have is grown substantially and so you're taking advantage of it And that's in everyone scenario. It's easy to understand in your case because you would have been at home or in a studio in isolated anyway right. But you're you're multiplying because you see that now's the time where people are available to talk and it's easier to schedule etc but the fact is that everybody in every field has a similar opportunity. You may have to go a little deeper to find it in. You may think a little harder. Maybe even go outside the box but you gotta do it because this is you know. This is a one and done time period and and I'd like to see everybody make the most of it. I also did an instagram posts for anybody that wants a you know a little more explanation on this on my At David Francioni instagram and Talk exactly about what you just ask. Which is you know. What should people do right now in the stay home? I saw his Gra. And it'll that's how people grow. I think it's cool to and it's really across some industries. But I like how right now people are like like unlike online lessons. Like the one that comes to mind. Is I know Dan Bailey. Who's great very predominant? Drummer is releasing his like master. Course he was like sixty six percent off or something because it's like everyone's at home use the content. Don't you know it it's like let's bring down the price let people actually buy it Which I think is very noble. Now that being said I do see like Nike doing it and stuff which you know that might not be. That might be more like buy shoes. You not as like you know. Pure is a drummer doing it but I think everyone has good intentions and is just trying to build each other up and in the I always say up at the drumming community very special. Where be at your jazz drummer or metal drummer. We we all really want to help each other So I think we're lucky to have to not be alone. We're we're altogether through so hundred percent Yeah I mean. The drumming community is is so connected and such a brotherhood sisterhood. It's IT'S AMAZING. and You know that's another thing that that I've always thought was so important about modern drummers that you've it's it's it's vital to the drumming community is as anything could ever be because that's what you're only community when you're acting in a in the manner of a community and in order to have that central place where everybody has would which really kind of dictates the community. It can't just be drummer scattered all over the world who loved drums it all has to be centralized to actually turn into the immunity were referring to and that's modern drummer gives it so. I think you know between what everybody has to do with stay home and in that central place of modern drummer listening to resources such a podcast. and really taking a good hard look at what they're doing and how they can improve. This will turn into a moment in time. That will change your life. Yeah absolutely and I do think it's important to stay to save for people like you know it's hard to do it but really staying home and I don't WanNa get political or anything at all because I'm not a political guy but staying home really is very important because that's the only way to stop. I mean people are dying so it's really a very effective way. You literally like everyone keeps saying it but you just have to stay home. There's no there's it's it's relatively easy. Just stay home and don't go out and don't see a bunch of people so well I see most people do in that right. Yeah of course I mean that's one hundred percent right now as we get closer to the end here. I think it would be really neat. You yourself have a very interesting background. So you wrote the book crash which features tons of really cool drum sets. You've worked with major band. So why don't you Take a few minutes and just let people kind of meet the new. Ceo and publisher of Modern Drummer. And tell us about you well. David Francioni My world actually started before I was born because my parents who met right after my dad got a World War Two They're dreaming goal was to have a family and they ended up not being able to have children for over fifteen years of their their beginning of there from the beginning of their marriage. On for no reason the doctors couldn't tell him why so they literally just kept trying to have kids and and you know just kind of accepting the fact that as I got older and older that they may never have this family that they dreamt up then they had my brother John. Three years older than me and he was like a miracle kid to them like. Wow the dodgers couldn't explain why they couldn't have kids and they couldn't explain why they finally did advocate so this was all big mystery and then they had me And that that's my family. My Mom and Dad who are no longer with us on my brother and myself and when I was two I got diagnosed with Retina Bostonians which is cancer the eye and they were sure if I was gonna live so this whole idea of the family that they jumped was now being challenged that they could lose the younger son to cancer at age too so it was riveting very traumatic as you could imagine. Yeah I think losing a child at any age under any circumstances beyond comprehension in terms of sadness trauma for for any parent and They were no different and I ended up. Having to have my right eye removes. I've been blind in my right eye ever since. I only really know in. Remember what it's like to see out of one. I N that really formed my life from then on. I found drumming literally at that age at the time. Of course I had no idea even as I get a little older. I always said I started playing the drums around seven or eight years old but then I then I found pictures lit when my mom passed away in two thousand four. She was my best friend than closest person to me. Ever in my inspiration And really the reason. We're on this podcast right now with with credits in in any kind of success And when she passed away I was going through photos that I had never seen before and I was drumming at eighteen. Nineteen months in two years. Old photos were dated. It was unbelievable right before Mike. Answer and then of course right after so. I've been playing the drums literally my whole life in one form or another at eight years old. I started taking lessons. We couldn't afford a drum kits. I was taking drum set lessons every week from a local public drummer. I in school and then from a guy to music store Mr Willy and that was playing on phone books in pots and pans and tables to emulate a drum kit and eventually I gotTa Use Drum Kit. My parents saved up for a couple years and I played the heck out of that thing and started playing in bands started looking at. How can I be the world's greatest drummer I wanted to do? Something bigger in life than what surrounded me in my neighborhood. My environment was very limiting environment very very blue collar. People kind of stayed in the town. And just you know kind of kind of almost resigned in that area to like. Okay will this is. This is what it is and I was such a rebel against that Zig. No Way I'm going to do big things if it kills me and I worked really hard to accomplish that. I didn't. I didn't just dreaming. I actually did it which I still do to this day. fourteen sixteen hour days on a regular basis. Because that's how much time it takes to do it. You know so after twelve thirteen years. Old playing gigs I starting to lead a band in. I started to learn about booking gigs and SORTA learn about business which I had no idea which really learning I was trying to do is get my band into different venues clubs and whatever But of course with that comes agreements you know. How much are we GONNA get? What's the set time? What's load in load out in all these things that I was just learning all these cool things that had no idea would serve me for my entire life? Found technology through drumming round. Seventeen years old. I was searching for great drum. Sounds technology now or in the early to mid eighties was starting to become very important to drumming. So that's what my first explorations consisted of with like okay. How do I trigger drums? How do I understand the basics of programming drum machine and that a falling in love with technology as much or more as I did drumming and what I saw as my technology career was really taking off and it came very naturally to me is I saw that I became a consultant? Mini consultant got a lot of clients. And I saw that while like in this environment I can contribute to music and take everything I've learned about music and I can do it on a much bigger scale in a much more Passionate in end interesting scale than I could even as a drummer because a lot of the bands and artists that I would dream of working with had a drummer. But they didn't have anybody helping them with technology so yeah it would just kind of a hand in glove fit so I really pursued it than you know. Had A very successful meeting consulting business before I was twenty years old and get through a lot of hard work from starting at zero and then got the Gig with I was referred to them and I came in to do one project for a week and never left and then from there.

Shall we with our guest this week? the legendary head coach and national soccer hall of Fame Inductee of the old. Chicago sting of the North American Soccer League and his name is Willy. Roy and as you'll soon learn from his accent is almost you could call a native Chicagoan I of course because he was born in Germany and has a very strong and distinctive German accent. But there's no guy more synonymous I think with Chicago Soccer Than THAT OF MR Willy Roy Who was the longtime coach of the Chicago? Sting From around value. We'll talk about it. seventy six seventy seven or so is there was an interim head coach title there. We'll get into some of The House and wise of that but he Stayed with the stink for right through the end of their at least outdoor Life in the North American Soccer League in Nineteen eighty-four and then a little bit later as to the indoor thing with the MSL went on and we'll get into some of that too But the The game that you heard there featuring dulcet tones of Howard Balsam longtime on air broadcaster for Chicago Sting Games and There was no more exciting. I think while there are plenty of exciting games and sting history for sure But there was certainly one of them right there and that was on October. Third Nineteen Eighty Four. That you just heard when the Chicago sting won their second ever North American Soccer League Championship against the Toronto Blizzard in Game. Two of what was then had become not a singular soccer bowl championship game but a three game series for the soccer bowl title and That was a mere two games. Two Games gives me two days after he says The first game which was on October first in front of about eighty three hundred people in the the old Comiskey Park in Chicago when the sting won the that game? Two TO ONE Now two days later on a Wednesday evening at Varsity Stadium in Toronto Actually. I think the blizzard of the time. We're playing home games at the much newer exhibition stadium but for whatever reason exhibitions said he was not available that evening. So varsity stadium where The Old Toronto teams the Metro Korea and I think even the the Toronto Earlier versions of of Toronto's Asl and Even precursor Lives were so. It's kind of sort of an interesting sort of a circle of life there but what game. That was on October third. The sting had actually gone up to zip around the minute. Sixty eight were winning to nothing and and looking like everything was gonna be Honky Dory and in a blizzard in succession in a in a matter of two and a half minutes scored two goals in the seventieth minute and the Sorry Seventy First Minute. Seventy third minute and then potter more headache. The Magic Man A guy who will be talking about here in a second with Our guest willy. Roy scored in the eighty. Second Minute to to take it off the sting two games to none and of course the interesting piece of Trivia around that game that was also the last ever game in total for the North American Soccer League. I'm I'm not sure people recognize that at the time. Although there's absolutely a a feeling in the air that things were not good and matter of fact quite quite dire for the North American soccer league as it played out in the months afterwards it limped along and ultimately Gave up the ghost death in the early part of nineteen eighty five but the Chicago sting. Why very Interesting team and certainly a A big splashy name and the people involved similarly splashy great personalities and a tremendous legacy and as we've talked about in previous episodes Mike Conklin and particularly want to search that episode up longtime sportswriter for the Chicago Tribune and Scribe if you will and and chronicler of the Chicago sting a very fascinating precursor to this conversation with Willie this week. Really climb the mountain in Chicago and became synonymous with it's championship. History at one thousand nine hundred one ticker tape parades and all that nineteen eighty-four. I guess not as a sort of a you know a memorable as the eighty-one championship season. But it's certainly solidified. The Stings Major League status in a very tough sports town that of Chicago and it was absolutely also part of at least for an initial bid of time the indoor success the Chicago sting also was successful and enjoyed Both in the NSL and then later in the major indoor soccer league and then of course it all fall apart fell apart as a lot of things did in the mid to late nineteen eighties. But I digress. I encourage you to listen heartily to this great conversation with the head coach of many of those successful years with this ghosting. Willy Roy and you know we actually start prior to Willie's a tenure with the sting and I think it's really important in maybe lots and lots of people that Willy Roy was a member of Some of the earliest teams in pro Soccer history in this country in the late sixties when that was getting rebooted The Chicago Spurs of the National Professional Soccer League and then the second year than becoming the NSL the Chicago Spurs playing in Comiskey Park They relocated to Kansas City to become the Kansas City. Spurs in Nineteen Sixty Eight As well and that's part of the The NFL's history. And then Willie was part of the Saint Louis Stars. Very important legacy franchise from seventy one to seventy four in the ASL. All that was before he came to the Chicago sting both as a player and then player coach and then as a coach full time and so we get into all of that sort of how willing sort of got involved in pro soccer in the United States in the first place. Oh and by the way was part of the. Us national team for a good eight years from nineteen sixty five to seventy three including a whole bunch of World Cup qualifications in certainly for the nineteen seventy World Cup and then some so all of that stuff and then the sting. We get into with our special guests this week. Willy Roy the longtime coach of Said an ASL legacy franchise coming up in just a few moments. Entertaining is not the best word. It's it's more than that. I can't come up with another adjective right now but you will enjoy it for sure.

"We are literally living among legends. They might not be legends here in Detroit or even in the United States. But they're worshiped as gods in the UK. That's the voice of Dan Austin, the co founder of the motor city soul club which celebrates its fifth anniversary this weekend at the marble bar in Detroit. And this is an interview edition of your daily Detroit recorded on Thursday, April eleventh, two thousand nineteen I'm spend Gustafsen, and I'm Jerry stays. So without further ado, let's just jump right into it. Dan Austin is a man of many talents. He's a friend of the podcast, you might know him best as the voice behind historic Detroit dot org. We frequently call on him as a source. You were on our podcast special commemorating Aretha Franklin after she passed away a few months ago. You're also the founder or co founder of motor city soul club co-founders. Find co Fido need to take all the credit which is having its fifth anniversary celebration this Saturday at the marble bar, Dan. Austin welcome to daily Detroit. Good to see you. Great to be here, motor city soul. Club started five years ago. Like take us back. What how did this get rolling here? So got rolling because no Detroit being Motown. We didn't have a soul night in town where there was no where he could really go to just hear old soul records, many which would recorded here in Detroit and other been funked nights over been funk nights. And and Motorcity funk night is it's awesome. And and everything they do is great. But we were trying to do soul. You know that that mod more the Motown sound. And when I say the Motown sound, I mean, that's kind of a general that record label. Yeah. But I mean, there were there were hundreds of of labels in Detroit during the heyday as everything from gold world Rick tick to you know, taster I mean there were tons chest to right, Chicago. But they wish they were trained off. I'm thinking fortune was Detroit journalists to trade. So there are all these labels with all these amazing artists. Many of whom are still alive and still live here in the city. And and there was no where you could really go to. Hear these records. And I'm also somebody in terms of music who I get really bored with songs after a while. I'm one of those people who you know, I never need to hear baby love ever again. And I bet a lot of listeners don't either because you can sing the song from the beginning. You can hear the harmonies, you know, the song. So well, so why don't you dig deeper and see what else is out there and play the B side off of forty five or play in more obscure less appreciated record because there's so much amazing music out there again so much of it made right here in our own backyard that nobody was listening to people in the UK worship the stuff. I mean, one of the examples I like the togethers every week. I walked by this guy, Willie Kendrick he likes to drink coffee in new center one and people watch. And everyone's like, hey, Mr. willy. Hey, Mr. willy, nobody knows like who he was. But when the Detroit to go go comes to town every October will be back. This october. He gets up there. And he sings the song change your ways and everybody in the crowd hundreds of people from England who have flown over Detroit for this show. No every single word. There are hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people around the world who are actively looking for for those records. And nobody knows who will he is. He's Mr. willy the guy who's drinking coffee. I've seen this as a theme actually not just with your John RA. But I think about electron IQ, I think about other types of musical acts from Detroit that there is so much appreciation around the world for what happens here, but within our own regional borders, so many people don't know the magic that's created right here. Yeah. Like, we are literally living among legends. They might not be legends here in Detroit or even the United States. But there were shipped as gods in the UK this northern soul phenomenon that's been going on since the seventies over there. I mean, I guess they looked at it as if Detroit's not going to appreciate its own talent than will. Appreciate it forum. Yeah. So we wanted to try to bring some of that back to the city, and it started off real small. You know, we start off at lager house. We were there. You know, I've been bumping around playing some records with people like Amy hurl and Aldridge of nothing allegance and some other friends here and there, but there wasn't anything that was just soul. So I- Brad Hales from people's records had run the Ann Arbor soul club for a long time. And it was a huge success in Ann Arbor. But eventually ran its course at the blind pig. And so as went brand said, hey, you know, let's let's make this happen. Brad jumped on and then I'm trying to remember exactly a couple years later. I think than we enlisted undrafted Erica to join us and Erica eighths eights, and and it kind of all from being the small thing again went from lager than we went to Saint cici's for awhile until it closed, and it was usually just me and some friends playing records for our friends, and it was pretty small. It wasn't much of a dance party. The venue didn't really allow for it. And then we went Tamar are UFO we are at UFO for low while, and then we went to the marble bar and has become again this night of friends playing records for friends two friends playing records for total strangers like hundreds of people who I have no idea who they are. But I'm thankful that they're there. And you know, the part of the mission of the soul club is to educate not just in terms of the artist biles. But also, you know, letting people know that it's music's out there whenever someone comes up to me during a set, and they're not what is this record. You know that is like mission accomplished for me because nothing. I mean, that's why we're out there doing it. Try to spread the love of this music and get more people hooked on it and to keep the music live for as long as possible. And so you obviously are a huge music fan. D- were you a DJ in a previous life? I mean, did you work on a campus radio station or something? Yeah. With cds. I was at Michigan state, and I did the impact for awhile. But what we do. I mean when we talk about deejays it's much different than the radio deejays. We don't talk are sets. The Brits do. It's really weird. I think kills the vibe not gonna tell you how to run your scene mates. But but yeah, we I did some DJ stuff there. There was mostly just, you know, find this music that I loved and I wanted to share with people I always was one of those kids who made mix tapes or mix CDs. Jeff all my friends, I'd find maiden records. And I just wanted to share it because I couldn't, you know, keep it just to myself. I wanted everybody listening to this music that I that I loved and usually older stuff. I'm. Pretty out of touch with a lot of what's going on. Now. I my wheelhouse is like sixty two maybe sixty three to seventy one seventy two right before the disco stuff. That's kind of where I drop off. Why that era would

All four missionaries were on edge from that point on. Well, you would think. Yeah. Yeah. Kind of I guess you always have to write down the obvious in a police report. Willie demanded money. But the men told them we got any money. We're missionaries missionaries offered to go to a nearby gas station. Convenience store and get some money for him. I guess from a cash machine. While walking to the store Willie told the men that he'd killed people that he had dealt drugs, and then he'd run guns before victims the four missionaries believed. The suspect would have shot them because of his intoxication state if they didn't comply so drunk guy with a gun. Don't trust him.

And some people some of you may have been back in there. It's not very interesting piece of property, and there are sort of log structures back in there. Yeah. The been rented out for years. I've always been curious what's back there. But because it's not my property. I don't go back there. It's a public. It's actually a public drive, but they it's always kind of blocked off. And when it's not blocked off there. You're kind of discouraged from going back there. And things like that. You've been back there. People live back there. So there are people who rent. Of course, I've been back there, gene. It's it's so they're all of the structures back there. I don't know how many apartments in little places are back there. I wanna say five I read the same article. They're they're moving everybody out. Yeah. It's gotten quite rundown. Apparently and the owners of the property have said it's just gone too expensive to try and keep it all up. It was originally established as a bird sanctuary in the nineteen thirties by Dr George Allen, hence the name Allen park drive. It's he served as president of the sugarhouse businessmen's league, and the Salt Lake zoological society has recently served as a refuge for its residents from a growing city.

"I think that's a reasonable question. Just just. Fine, fine, fine. Mr. willy of his junior drop that beat her. It was her story. Hi, I'm glad. Story. Story. Okay. You're all set. Aren't you? Late in twenty. Sixteen on my other show reveal. I interviewed white nationalist Richard Spencer and one of the things that you said is that you were going to be able to talk to people of color about going along with your white Ethnos, no state. And so you've got a person of color right now. Talk to me about your white, Ethnos, eight. Let's not talking about the state. Let's talk about identity. Who are you if I say that don't think about it just answer who are you? Sure. I'm an African American male that has four kids. One of those kids is a white kid. I adopted him. He has no black blood in his body at all. He is the apple of my. He's my sixteen year old boy and I love him to death. Normally I wouldn't bring up my kids in an interview, but I'm so opposed to the way the Richard sees the world in the moment. The only way I could respond to him was by speaking the truth of my own life. Afterwards, people have asked, how do I have a white sun? All the story. Starts as many. Do a boy meets girl. Now, the boy has kids from a previous relationship. The girl has a son a baby less than a year old from a previous relationship. Boy, it was black as where his kids girl was white and so was her son and they lived in the deep south Jacksonville, Florida. The boy, of course is me. And when I met the girl baby caught by heart, he was such a happy cute. Baby loved a snuggling giggle and his biological father wasn't in the picture. It was just the two of them at the time. I was still trying to figure out how to be a single father to my kids. No one gives you a handbook. It's a series of trial and error, and to be honest, I was lost and then I met the girl and she helped me figure it all out and figuring it out. I fell in love with her and with her kid. I love this little boy. I loved his mom and it didn't matter what co-. They were. And so we became a family now I grew up in the south and I'd never done the interracial dating thing. This is almost twenty years ago. So it was a different time and place than we're in now. And my first relationship of this type I was extremely uncomfortable in public all is seem to be on you even when they weren't. I just couldn't help, but feel like they were at if I was uncomfortable holding hands with a white woman. Imagine how uncomfortable I was holding a little white baby when we were all together as a family. Everyone we passed will be trying to figure it out to black kids. One white kid, a black dad and a white mom. What. But we lived in a pretty liberal part of town. And in that bubble we mostly good except back then there was no grocery store in the neighborhood and to get groceries. We had to go to another neighborhood and I hated this place. People would look at me like, is that your baby? I'd get followed by managers. Whenever I went in, if I had a check I needed to cash without fail, they wouldn't cash. Once I saw an old woman getting robbed in the parking lot, I went inside to tell the employee's and the manager wanted to detain me. This was the type of store I was going to with my little white baby. So the whole time we were in the store, I would just talk to them and say stuff like, ooh, hey, but like this and think you daddy like this, don't don't do that to tell you daddy. When we get home, my goodness, your daddy would so proud of you? Yes. You're such a good boy. I was just scared. Scared him getting taken away. As scared of being put in jail, scared of what people would think. I know where that fear is from is sprouts from memories of my youth of being run off the road by big four by four truck with a confederate flag hoisted above the cap. I was nineteen. I thought I was going to die or when I was a salesman, I was going to collect a check for my employer from another business. I was escorted into the business owners office and the man an older white man pulls out two handguns places. One on the desk and begins to polish another one and looks me in the eye but says nothing. I was twenty two. I thought I was going to die. The fear is nurtured by white officers. Pulling me over checking my license, throw me on the hood of cars talking to me like I was trashed and at times threatening me. This happened all through my twenties. And at times I thought I was going to die in even if I didn't know what it was, then. I can clearly see it now. Then when I held this little white baby or held his mother's white hands, something deep inside of me thought if the wrong person in the wrong place on me, I might die. But if my father taught me anything, he taught me that every day you have to fight for your family even if they're fighting with yourself. And I did far Ford ultimately got me over all of that was love at. Look at this little kid who looked nothing like me, blond hair blue eyes, and he loved me unconditionally. He'd run around the house, calling my name and day by day. He chipped away that fear. And then one day when he was about to he and I were coming home from the park, and I remember taking him out of his car seat in his hand, pressed on my nose like a horn at honk. Get out of that. But after he finished giggling told him nobody. You can call me daddy. From that day on did, and I changed to, frankly, I didn't give a fuck what anyone thought. What I knew that he was my son and I was his dad. Years. Go by the kids grow up. We add another child net brings kid count to four, and you know, life does what it does. It grows its drinks. It struggles thrives at the elementary school. He went to all the parents and teachers knew me because I'd pick him up every day and the dreadlocked black man picking up a little blonde, blue eyed, white kid who runs around and screams. Daddy was well memorable. Whenever anyone stared at us, I could feel that fear bubbling in my heart, but I would just look at my son and concentrate on him because he's my son and I am his dad. I didn't want them to feel hesitation from me or anger from anyone else. Watching him grow up at times was hard. Parents are mostly white neighborhood where little weird about leading their kid play with my kid, the white kid with a black father. I don't know what the conversations were in their houses, but I imagine they thought our family was strange. No, the flip side go into my father's all black church was in experienced to. I felt like the congregation wanted to stare at me and my little white kid. Now they treated us well and loved us. So chances were they could care less, but I still felt it. I just look at my son and concentrate on him because at the end of the day, he is my son and I am his dad. When he was in fourth grade. He asked me to come to his class in perform to tell a story for the kids, and I realized I'd never done it before fourth grade and I hadn't been to any of his class stuff. I got a ton of excuses. Why hadn't I was watching his little brother. I was working. I was on the road yada, yada, yada, yada. Ya. And maybe that's true. But also maybe it wasn't maybe I was still dealing from this place of fear and and didn't even realize it. So I go. And when I walk in the room, the kids are jumping around excited. My son's in the back he keeps his head sees me and runs at me wraps his arms around my leg saying daddy, daddy, daddy, and we walk through the class in all the kids are looking at us at one boy says that your daddy and my fourth grader, the sweetest kid that I know stands up straight puffs, his chest out and says, he's my dad when a make something up. I didn't know what to say. I didn't even know he knew how to talk that way. Budel kid all the kids just seem to chill out, and I was just a dad coming to tell story. I did my thing. The kids loved it, and my son was overjoyed. But that night I got to thinking about it and it struck me that wasn't my son's first time defending the way he said it the way he squared his shoulders. He had done this so many times before and as much as I thought that I have been showing up for him. I realized that he'd been showing up for me in his own way fighting for his family that day didn't change anything between us. I loved him before I went in that classroom and I loved him when I left. But over the years, a lot has changed. Then little boy is almost eighteen. He's becoming a man. He's taller than me weighs more than me and looks. More like four than my Black Panther his mom, and I broke up a moved across country to the bay area and a year later him and his little brother moved to California to live with me when a few of my friends her that the boys will moving in with me, they asked up like even her son, he's gonna live at you. Like, how's that gonna work at first, I didn't understand. Of course he's coming to live with me. It's not just her son. He's my son too. But the world operates differently and even people who have known us since he was a baby can't see past the difference between us, namely the color of our skin. And I understand it drives me crazy when people say they don't see color because we live in America. Everything is informed by race. I absolutely see color. My son sees color, but when it comes to each other, I see my son the baby whose diapers I changed the kid that never wants to do the dishes, belittle guy that stood up for me and his fourth grade class, one of the four pieces of my heart. And when he looks at me. He sees his dad. Men that will always have his back. Because every day. You gotta fight for your family. Joe.
