"Comes to mind was one dick perton left sea kale W it is not. Necessary, it necessarily the case that the audience will follow you. Never have been, you know, people's habits, you know, happened to me many times. People who would be listening to me at one place, they wouldn't be listening to me at the next. So you start saying that loyalty is just, well, I have known loyalty for a long time has been gone from pretty much everything in life, but you're telling me that even a long time ago it was gone? Well, but yes, but remember when you're going back far enough, the disc jockey was only part of the package. If you like the station and you like the music and you like the promotions and you like the presentation, well, if the jock left everything else didn't leave with him right. So but I'm saying let's say it was it was July 28th, 1996. That was the day they switched back to adult standards. After being on talk radio for years. Here's the question. The audience scattered. And in that case, the audience had to scatter because they weren't going to necessarily stay with a completely different format. It's like if they went Spanish language, they wouldn't stay. All right. Correct. Well, we'll assume that whatever format they're approaching whatever station we're talking about don't happen to be what it doesn't have to be 1160, but okay, so a radio station changes to a format that is completely different from what it was before. The listeners are going to the listeners are going to go somewhere else. Well, they're somewhere else if they're happy with it. What's the impetus for them to leave that? Well, here's this is I'm sorry to say that I don't have an answer to your question, but to follow it up with a question. The day they switched back. Jack, July 28th, 1996. Okay. That was a gorgeous, I remember the day, beautiful, gorgeous summer day. And for me, you know, I would assume that I'm like most Americans, I tune around a lot on the radio. And if I happen to hear that music, which I love playing on that station again, I'm going to be excited and start telling people and all of that. You need to tell me that nobody switches around and says, hey, the music's back on 1160. Well, not the majority of people, but you're bringing up a priceless example because when JJ D, which of course dropped adult standards for talk in 94, came back to it in 96, they still had G Gordon lydian Tom likes. So depending depending upon what time you tuned in, you weren't getting your adult standards. Right. But you had all you had all day, though. Well, I understand that, but people, you know, in general, you're going to get some people who will. But in general, once somebody's needs are being met somewhere, it is hard to get them to make a change. So you're telling me, you're just told me that average listener might say, oh, 1160s back on the music, I don't know, I like though. They have Sinatra playing here or Nat King Cole playing, oh, great, great tongue that are playing, but I'm oh boy, still does it for me. Well, it's not so much that. Remember, you're very interested in radio for most listeners, radio was a utility. So it's not that level of interest. So if AIT is playing the same things and they're liking them, well, why do they have to look further for it? Okay. Well, it goes back to loyalty again. Well, but it is a case of loyalty. Again, think of it as a utility. Okay. And so I'm the exception then to the rule that I'm the loyal woman. Well, you're in the minority because you have a deep abiding interest in it. You know, radio is for most people is a timeshared activity. They're listening to the radio while they're doing something else. Maybe it's driving, maybe it's washing the dishes. I don't care what working. Whatever it is, nobody is sitting in front of the radio and staring at it like it was 1932. And so that would be me. That would be me doing that. There are very few people who will do that. You are absolutely in the minority. So for most people, it's much more of a casual relationship. Now, if suddenly AIT stopped playing the music that they liked and nothing else was available, they'd be just saying, I'm losing my music. I can't hear it anywhere. If it came back somewhere, well, they'd hear it again. But that didn't happen. They were being fed a diet of what they wanted where they were. So I don't think they think of it in terms of loyalty. Okay, well, that's very interesting to me. Well, they are, I had this conversation with my brother who owns a business and can you tell me that there's no customer loyalty to businesses anymore and I said, yeah, I think that's pretty much true and everything. And I don't know how much there ever was other than your core customer. Like the business that your brother has, he's got a core group of customers who are going to be loyal and going to be there and, you know, they'll be his power consumers. But that might be 5% of his total take. So, no, it's not like that. And the other thing, of course, is at this point in time, so many things are competing for the attention of the listener back to that. It's almost an unlimited supply, and if you add online to that, whatever somebody wants to hear, they'll find it. Right. Wow, you've given me an education. So you mean to tell me you've lost a lot of listeners because you've moved around? Oh, absolutely. And it's funny that occasionally someone will find me. I'll get an email every now and then, oh man, when I was in high school, I listened to you every night in Denver, you know, and that was 40 years ago. That kind of thing. And so occasionally that will happen. But more often than not, no, it's out of sight out of mind. And as I say, you can look at some of the examples and dick the most notable because, again, he was just killing it at sea klw. He goes across the road and the audience doesn't follow. Well, this is all new to me. I thought I thought in radio that your audience policy, if they loved you. Well, with talk, there is probably more of a proclivity to do that because the host is going to stand out so much more than a guy who's just spinning records. But for the most part, no, it's stational. Wow. You know, this is the statement. I love it. I love it. Thank you. Thank you so much, you have a wonderful weekend. You too, thanks for calling. I appreciate it. Bye bye. All right, so 888-876-5593. And I think that's probably close to the end of the night, but we're going to try to get Brian and Frank and Mike in under the wire. Otherwise, of course, Monday night trivia tomorrow trivia is a pre recorded so don't call, but Monday night will be back live at it. And next week there are no sports interruptions. So there on WGN radio. Double YouTube I always had to be so good. No one could ignore me. Carve my path with data

"James and that's sweet. That's Jesse belvin unreleased like so many wonderful things he wrote. What can I do without you? And I'm going to appear on an ACD somewhere in the 90s though and Jesse would have turned 90 this month born in 1932 in San Antonio, sadly died in February in 1960 that fatal auto crash and hope Arkansas with his wife and that was after that tumultuous Little Rock concert with Sam Cooke and Marv Johnson and Jackie Wilson. It was actually the first integrated show in Little Rock histories. You can imagine what happened there. Jesse's driver actually was fired by Ray Charles for falling asleep at the wheel and he probably did again. Sam Cooke called him an inspiration, Ray Charles said he was better than he was. How about that? RCA was grooming him as the answer to Nat King Cole, sadly. And boy it was he ever free and loose with the songs he wrote. He appeared in so many groups or quarter on so many labels, specialty and money and modern and Aladdin and class and even more. And just such a terrific terrific artist. And yeah, that was a crucial loss to the music industry. I would have loved to have seen how it turned out. And as I say, he'd be celebrating his 90th birthday this month had it not been for that auto crash. So 888-876-5593 is 88, 88 rally.

"Right or wrong. All right guys, three topics in this week's right or wrong segment. The first one, taba, going in search of his third grade one victory this season and Monday's Malibu on opening day at Santa Anita. If he is successful, he will be three year old champion. Is that right or wrong? Yeah, right or wrong. Am I right? Timmy? Well, well, I've got my tape as bandwagon for a long time and I think epicenter will probably be voted the champion three year old regardless of what day but does. But in the Malibu. But you win three grade ones, I think that should put him over the top. I mean, that 8 starts four wins three seconds. You can't penalize him for getting hurt in reader's cup classic, which table finished third and behind the marvelous flight line. But if table does win, the Malibu, and there's no guarantee. I mean, that's not a, I mean, he's got to go up against some 8 other horses and two of them he faced in the Santa Anita Derby and messier and forbidden kingdom, but I have a vote. The table wins the three that the Malibu. I'm going to vote for him for top three year old. But I really do think the way the voters are because they're going to vote for epicenter. He has one grade one and two so far sanity is Derby in the Pennsylvania Derby. Do they Trump the Travers? Probably not. And he's got the Jim dandy Louisiana Derby. We're going to start grade two races for epicenter. So I think it's an interesting debate and I think that, again, I think epicenter will win. But I think it'll be close. It table wins the Melbourne. Yeah, I mean, theme pulled me his way a little bit, but I'm still on the epicenter bandwagon. I just put a lot more weight in the races. He ran into an end to traverse and then do some of the other races for table, but you're right. It is a close battle this year. No, we're going to find out. First of all, Tay boat will have to take care of business on Monday at Santa Anita. All right, topic number two for this week's right or wrong. Going to have some fun with the next two guys. It's a Christmas show. I wanted to tie in a couple of Christmas related topics. So here you go. You can tell me if I'm right or wrong. Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, and even Elvis Presley will always be associated with memorable Christmas songs. But if I were to say that grandma got run over by a reindeer, deserves to be somewhere in the top 5 all time, would I be right or wrong? What do you think?

"I'm Josh and chuck is here in Jerry's here and there's a million elves surrounding us and making us kind of nervous 'cause they're just looking at us and not saying anything. And this is stuff you should know the holiday episode. The last recording of the year for us. It's great. And I'm so excited about that, and you and I love our jobs. But it doesn't matter how much you love your job. Vacation is better. Yeah. Some vacay is better, yeah, agreed. And this is going to be our longest Christmas break yet, and we're both super excited to do that, but we're even more excited to share with you another set of it's getting thin, but another set of great stories for Christmas. I disagree. I feel reinvigorated, I think we hit the we hit rock bottom two years ago. And we've been coming back ever since and I feel great about this one. Did you really look at two years ago? Was it bad? No, no, I remember it. It was not great. Yeah, I don't know. I need to be invigorated by you then because every year I keep thinking, oh boy, that's a lot of years to be doing 6 to 8 Christmas stories, like how many are out there? There's plenty, man. We'll never run out. Come over here. I'll invigorate you right now. Okay. All right. Thank you. How many? Okay, we're going to start out with your pick. One of your picks? Yes, this is actually from listener named Alexandra stock or stoke. I'm not sure. I bet it's stuck. She wrote in for several years with a bunch of really good ideas, but she really, really was pushing for the chestnut one. And I understand why now, because it's a really interesting story, the story behind why chestnuts used to be basically like the symbol of Christmas in America. For a couple hundred years until it just suddenly stopped being that way. And let's talk about that. Yeah, and big thanks to USA Today for a great article from Kate Morgan. I wonder if that's the same Kate Morgan that writes for how stuff works. Oh, I don't know. It's a great question. I bet it is. At any rate, if you've ever heard the Christmas song, a Christmas song, but the Christmas song. From crooner Nat King Cole, you might not even know that was the title of what's more commonly referred to as chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Yeah. This was recorded in 1946. It was a very big hit. One of the biggest Christmas songs of all times. And I guess it's sort of acted like everyone around was in America was sitting around roasting chestnuts, but I've never seen a chestnut, nor roasted or tasted one, and that's because by that point, there were no chestnut trees in the United States anymore. No, very sadly, a blight started to spread, I think, starting in 1904. And within 40 years, almost every single American chestnut tree was dead. And how many were there? There were a lot of them. At one point, half of the trees in the forests on the east coast from Maine to Alabama as far west over to Kentucky and Ohio were chestnuts, half of the trees in that stretch were chestnuts. And I think they were as many as 4 billion of them. So that's a lot of chestnut trees, and that's a lot of chestnuts. And that's a lot of roasting because people used to eat these things. The chestnuts themselves were small. They're about acorn size. And they had a very obviously nutty flavor, but very sweet. And carrot like is what I've seen. When you just eat them out of the shell, but then you roast them up a little bit. Things got even nuttier and they got a little sweeter as things often happen when they roast. And it was like a American and especially a Christmas staple where on street corners and cities all over the United States and the eastern seaboard. There were chestnut roasters serving up bags and bags of this stuff. Yeah, Kate Morgan puts it really, really great. She says, for more than a century, it was the smell of Christmas in America. Nice. I even wrote gosh after that in my notes. But it's sad. I mean, think about that. There was this amazing tradition that dated back easily to the 18th century, if not even a little earlier in North America, once Europeans came over and discovered chestnuts that I'm quite sure the indigenous peoples were well aware of for long before that. Of course. And they said, hey, these are pretty amazing. And they made it not just part of Christmas, but you could find chestnuts and dishes in America. And throughout the year, but something about roasting chestnuts at Christmas time was very Christmassy. And it's like you said chuck were bereft. Those of us alive today who were born after the mid 40s have never tasted a chestnut the way that it's supposed to taste in America because the stuff we got now is not holding up. No, they're importing chestnuts. I think largely probably for the Christmas season, even though you can probably get them I imagine all year round. But they're mainly imported from Korea or Italy or China, apparently. And these are not the American chestnuts. They apparently do not taste like they taste, apparently they don't taste that great at all. The way this one person that was interviewed in here described them was this is Libby O'Connell. Who's a food historian, wrote a book called the American plate, colon, a culinary history, and 100 bytes. But Libby describes them as sort of like a soft potato and bland and not like this crunchy thing that you would think of when you think of eating a roasted chestnut. No, and in a horrible ironic twist, those chestnuts that we're eating today in America like schmoes come from the very same tree that was imported to Long Island in the late 19th century that started the blight that killed off the American chestnut. You won't catch me buying those then. It's terrible. Luckily, there is a glimmer of hope. There is a group called the American chestnut foundation. Since 1983, they've planted at least 73,000 test trees. They've been trying really hard to crossbreed American chestnuts with Asian chestnuts so that they'll be immune to the blight, but they'll still produce those American chestnut chestnuts. They think maybe in a decade, maybe a little longer, we will be able to experience the Christmas chestnuts like they used to have back in the days of Nat King Cole. That's right. So if you live in North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, or Pennsylvania, then your state is growing those test chestnut trees and we all

I always thought that I used to think that song was by Nat King Cole. Sounds so much like him. Yeah, no, it's a obviously. You listen to a lot of Nat King Cole. Right, right. It literally is kind of, he recorded a number of things and wrote some things, but that's a medley of his hit. The end. Ah. Okay. It's pretty song. Yeah. Well, I should have listened to Karen. Uh oh. One of your callers. I remember a long time ago about the CD player. Oh, man. Yes. A whole bunch of buttons on it, but they toggled. Yes. Well, I decided we found speak to me. Catalog. So I decided to buy the one that they had. And I haven't gone into the closet to look at the other one, but I'm afraid it's the same one. Oh no. All right. Well, if it isn't the fact because I didn't think it was the same brand. I got to look and see because I didn't think it was the same brand as the other one. But it's the same problem. The same. Yeah, it seems to be anyway. Although, maybe it's not because this one doesn't seem to have. Multi functions on one button. Okay. So if it doesn't have multi functions on one button, I can learn them. Well, you'd think that if it's in the speak to me catalog, it would have to be right. Otherwise, this whole catalog useless. I bought it. I mean, literally caught it because a lot of blind people buy things on it's not doesn't market or just to blind people. Some people like these little talking things that they have for kind of little showy things. But it's mostly I would think that it's mostly blind people who buy there.

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. Throughout my career, I've spent a lot of time dealing with Christmas music. Most of it being country music because it worked in the country music industry for so long, but also working with adult contemporary formats, middle of the road, music formats. I know a little bit about Christmas music. And when it comes to the end of the day, I still prefer hearing the classics. What's now considered ancient Christmas music? From people like Andy Williams and Dean Martin and Mel Torme and Nat King Cole and all that stuff that I hated as a kid. Around my house, we used to hear all that music all the time in the 1960s and 1970s. And by then it was still old, but there's something about going back to it and the feeling it gives me to this day. Sure, there have been great Christmas songs. Some people would say, since the 1960s, I'm not even going to talk about wham or Mariah Carey, or Michael buble, or any of the Christmas music that's come in the last 20, 30 years, but give me the old stuff. And I know I'm not alone because I've got friends, probably of the same age who were the same way. There's something about the holidays and that old time music. They really put you in the mood.

"Love it here G and radio That's it The legendary stardust cowboy paralyzed mercury records Yes Chicago's own mercury records release this in November of 1968 promoted at rock folk world and country And yes major Bill Smith published paralyzed That's the name of it By the way paralyzed And they were from what I could tell serious is heart attack And the legendary service cowboy of course wrote it under his given name who I think was Norman Odom if I recall But that is the deal The legendary stardust cowboy and if that isn't the worst record ever released I give up And I've heard a lot of bad ones but they were serious about that So yes that I think is the extent of Bill smith's legacy Yeah And he probably wasn't even ashamed All right James on the south side welcome back to WGN radio Well I was concerned if somebody was to have a way to wake them up Yeah And again you know it wouldn't have been so interesting if it wasn't on mercury And they promoted this Well I was going to thank you for playing our Patsy climb You know strange Happy to I was going to request on call me on your way down I also find I'll also when I read through the articles for four pages on Monday's paper arcade there was actually a lab gut in the hot water where supposedly kept okay and another state where they kept trying to retest some unqualified pot and try to enhance it so that it would have the right amount of kick to it I guess PHP fluid All right I would say I really the only weed I'm interested in my yard and basically put it over the cop Yes Well just don't use Monsanto and you'll be better off for it But according to the Chicago Sun-Times articles from what I can tell is what they really kind of discovered was that some of it's very moldy but no consumer alerts or recalls are going to be going to be made So I would imagine just don't really want to have I know I absolutely know firsthand about it Yes Yeah And I was going to say the well located already the next day I should say okay good morning as well In fact well yes Always good Good to hear from you James And we're going get to about 64 here Good Excellent Enjoy it while you got it Hopefully it'll last for a few days I will get this they will have a somewhat warm day tomorrow And then by weekend it's supposed to both be back in familiar terms Oh sure No there's snow in the forecast sooner rather than later All right we'll talk to you Thanks One other request Okay The Christmas song by Nat King Cole That's serious I don't know The rally James I hate the holidays club should we actually be playing something like that We'll have to think about it Maybe we'll have to put that one off Yeah play it in the summer or something All right well thanks Appreciate it Okay He's a fine Christmas song as far as Christmas songs go Yeah I'll be tempted to play G was it's Christmas by Carla Thomas In fact I'm sure I will But in the meantime you know there always having a discussions about things like gun control and all that not meaning to make this political just I didn't realize how many things were not controlled at all And would you like a flamethrower Apparently there is one guy lives in Florida who's settling disputes with his neighbors over their parking habits by using a flamethrower to scare them off Spraying them with fire Now the fact that he actually aimed at them did earn him some felony aggravated assault charges but for a while he's been menacing the neighborhood with a flame floor thrower And there are no federal laws against having one of your very own You can buy them online for about $900 And the guy defended himself saying this is a family whose guests are bad thing for the neighborhood I don't know if someone aiming at a flamethrower at the neighbors is probably bad for the neighborhood as well Yes do not take your frustration out with propelled fire It will not end well no matter how you slice it 888-876-5593 Now tomorrow night I'm very excited because while Bill Riley is going to join me and we're going to talk about the west side sound and you know for years I love my east LA oldies and chicano aldis and I knew everything that came out of there And I thought that was the epicenter for a genre of music which is like no other Well it turns out that there was also quite the scene in San Antonio the west side sound And in fact when I had heard that sunny Ozuna went to Burbank high I figured a minute in LA No I said San Antonio And of course sunny zonda with so many things that probably the only national hit talk to me But so many other things as well So we'll talk about the website sound and obscure oldies in general And whatever's on your mind then on Thursday night we have Marianne ghostbuster And I haven't checked to see phases of the moon at the moment but I did notice You know about the law of abundance where you basically write a blank check right before the new moon every month And the universe brings you all manner of abundance supposedly Anyway I'm always forgetting to write my checks But now I've noticed that Marianne has come out with a law of abundance checkbook So it won't be honored in any bank but you're going for the celestial bank of this as far as as far as that goes So you can check that out too But I have a lot of fun with this but the bottom line is that Marianne is utterly amazing in that she sees ghosts They're there's probably discarded entities or what have you But what goes EarthBound spirits And I know this firsthand There was a time when John and I drove to visitor in Cleveland and she had mentioned in conversation while we were talking to John you know you brought a ghost And I did And I'm probably told you this before but it was a deal where John who collects comics and stuff like that Apparently a go sledged on to him in a comic store and followed him home and loved the house because there was all sorts of electronics ghost like electronics And one inch video realtor reels and stuff like that and all that So the ghost state well apparently the ghost made the trip in the Z.

"From october twenty six through april thirtieth of next year. Keto basically it's going to go six months it's a hologram residency correct. Would you you love concerts. Yep would you pay. Let's just say it costs the same as going to a regular concert. Would you pay to see whitney houston's hologram show okay so here is here's my take on this. I first of all. I grew up loving whitney. Houston i a huge fan. I think she was the voice of regeneration voice of a lifetime. Really whitney houston unbelievable. I never got a chance to see your life on. Never got a chance to see. Whitney houston live so i would try out this hologram experience to at least recreate the feeling of what it must have been like to see. Whitney houston live It seems to me that this. I've seen one hologram show all right one song. It was natalie cole when she was doing her unforgettable gap years and years ago that song from her dad and turn it and then they they did a basically one song nat king cole came out and sang a han ram gettable. Yeah that's what you are so do. Do you differ. By the way do you do you would not go to holograms show would not. I would feel creeped out. Did you ever see whitney houston life. No don't you want something like that experience. But i feel like a hologram. Show is one step beyond normal. Now i could be dead wrong. This thing could sell out now did you. Did you click. The story sent you. You can get it. Did you watch the video. The video looks interesting. it does look interesting. I mean it looks pretty legit. And i'll throw this at you john so one Let's see on this date and some year nine hundred fifty one. I think frank sinatra released strangers in the night. Now you're a huge sinatra right. Yeah would not go to a hologram show of pre. I would absolutely go to a hologram. Show of frank sinatra. I never got to see frank sinatra. In real life. I would go see a hologram performance of elvis presley. I never got to see elvis in real life and you would pay the going rate like. Let's say youtube was in concert. And you paid two hundred and fifty bucks to get in you. Pay the same price whatever. The price is to go to a hologram show. Because i feel like you're not getting a live performer. You're getting something on tape. You could watch on youtube. Well you're getting something in person right. You're getting something that i'm not saying. It's the same as going to a concert of whitney houston would pay the same generations of people. Going forward will soon forget whitney houston but she can. Her legacy can be kept alive with a residency like this a whole bunch of people. I don't know. I don't know if that's true like people haven't forgotton about sinatra and forgotten about elvis and those guys died years and years ago. Your music tends to carry on like nobody's forgetting about the beatles. Lennon died wayne in the eighties. Lennon was shot in eight. Maybe he's gonna late seventies. no. I think i think it was eighty one. Yeah i think it's eighty one. I think you're right So music lives on. Music is has a life of its own but the experiences different than you. Just listen to. It doesn't feel like her. Estate is is basically milking her legacy for this no. I think it's doing a service for i. Don't get the creepy feeling that you get. I mean i know it's a hologram. I know i'm not really seeing whitney houston but i'm getting some semblance of what it must have been like to see whitney houston in concert. And that's cool. I would go see a beatles concert if it was all holidays. Went to mania. Remember beatle mania. Zito meeting was a huge hit on broadway. It basically was four guys and they would dress up in costumes starting with when those guys mop tops young early sixties and then took him right through the seventy s when they had long hair and just did a two hour show where they changed the music behind him. Or there's a show right now in vegas at one of the one of the casinos which is basically. It's called the beatles love show. I've seen it twice. It's really good. Manatee salute to the beatles for two hours playing. It's a cover band playing beatles songs. So it's it's this you're all out on holograms. Not all out. But i would as with most things let you go first. Yeah i know. I if it was creepy i will go first on that one although i changed to concert industry forever. Think about it. If it's a hit all of a sudden you really could think about it you can do. You can do it for live performers. You could do a konya show in new york l. a. in paris all in the same night you could do a beatles reunion with paul ringo hologram. John and hologram george right. But i'm saying can you imagine if the hologram thing takes off you don't normally when a guy when a performer or a band goes on tour. Yes -sego from la to san francisco. Vegas you could. You could play all those towns on the same night at the same time. See if they're alive. I i wanna see them live. That's point torn. I if if i can see you. Or if i could see you. Imagine dragons can see mumford and sons or whoever it is live then allah see him live if they're dead and i never had the experience of seeing them. Then i understand the hologram conscience selena selena your way you would go to a selena. Show a hologram show. Yeah yeah me and brenda like totally up for it yet. Offer it to you. Depending on the artist. I mean it was a short career but she was those dead that you really want to see jesse so the first one that comes to mind. Yes and lena definitely and then another one is actually jim morrison. Because i'm i listen to lot classic rock so a lot of Your show with morrison. He's got a lot of stuff on definitely use unless he's crazy craziest trip though. That's anytime it'd be fun. Jessie are extremely. You can hear the the beat. That's that's the actual sound of my heart right now. This is your debut performance. Run radio tinder right. You know time.

"When the departing nat king cole harmonizes with the beloved daughter. I get butterflies in my stomach but win the voice of department anthony bourdain chopped in spice to make him speak words. He never spoke. Well i get a little queasy in my stomach. So what are the ethics of audio and what responsibilities do creators have when presenting this work to the public here to help me answer. That question is karen. How senior editor the mit technology review. Great to have you here. Karen thank you so much for having me melissa. So before we get to the ethics. Can you claim to me how this kind of a i works. Yes so you brought us some great examples of depict both video and audio and depict is just. It's a very broad category of synthesized media that is specifically generated by artificial intelligence so back in the day like if you wanted to touch up a video if you want to touch a photo Or touch up some audio. You're manually editing things in photoshop. or you're manually mixing the sound. Try to tweak in two different elements of it to make it sound more like someone to make it. Look more like someone And it's a very laborious process and you need a significant amount of training and be a professional in that space to achieve that kind of high quality effect But with ai technology. Today you can. Essentially just take thousands and thousands of audio clips of someone's voice or thousands and thousands of photos of that person's face feed it into an algorithm the algorithm learns. What makes someone look. Melissa issue or sound melissa. Ish and then it will start pumping out new pictures new videos or new audio that really captures the likeness of that person to the point where today. It's really hard to detect. Sometimes if the what you're seeing what you're hearing is actually real or fake. So fascinating technology and i could see how it could be valuable if we had informed consent if we had a living subject. Who said all right. I wrote this is an email. You know. i've never actually said it but sure you take time to to use ai. To make that voice. I can even imagine for some folks who lose their voice related to disease or disability. That it's a way to produce a voice of them that closer to their own voice before it f- loss but it feels really different when someone can't give consent for it. I think you touched on one of the one. The core ethical challenges. Here i think sort of to that come into play. When we're talking about the ordain example. One is consent Obviously this was done posthumously. And if there's a question of okay we'll do you really want to portray himself that way. Sure he wrote that email. Those are his words but in the same way that a writer might right piece Fiction and then they have a particular vision in their mind for how that would be presented. It feels a little weird that someone just took creative license to present his words in in the way that they wanted not the way that he wanted And i feel like the second issue is disclosure so the public was feeling really riled up in part because they would never found out that this was fake audio unless helen rosner had actually house to Melville whether how how he actually obtained the audio of the email and then it came out through the interview that he had used synthetic method. And so because we're treading very new territory here. There are very few examples of technology being used in mainstream media production. I think we're starting to learn how much people can really care about the consent of person and The disclosure to the audience like those two elements. And i keep thinking. There's a political possibility here. I mean if i could just make you know former president trump or or current president. Joe biden say anything. Because i've got plenty of audio to feed into my algorithm. That strikes me is really dangerous. Absolutely i think that is one of the most terrifying aspects of duplex. There's definitely a very big worry that even if we have these technologies developed by companies that are responsible that will only take on certain projects after. They've vetted it for ethics. The technology already exists out there in anyone can use it at any time and that means doctors as well and there's concern of misinformation political misinformation where we see or hear Video and audio of politicians. Something believe that it's true and actually completely fake and there's also the flip concern that we see something that's completely real. But because the technology exists we now start to doubt its veracity and believed that it might be fake And this was really interesting. Because i don't know if people remember when the hollywood access tape came out probably like a few months after that came out. Trump actually said. Oh well these days there are so many like fake voice technologies out there now and he tried to vote the idea that might have been synthesized so both of those situations are a rather dangerous because they sort of slowly erode away our trust of media all right karen. I want you to.

How are they supposed to know that the footage was actually what's known as a deep fake now. In recent years deep fake videos have become increasingly convincing but many of those videos.

Anthony dane reading an email that he wrote to a friend. The decision was sharply criticized by many on social media particularly because viewers of the film would not have known that the audio was manipulated. If neville hadn't disclosed the fact during his interview in response to rossner's questions neville said quote. We can have a documentary ethics panel about it later in quote kind of thinking. Maybe we should have an ethics panel. Now i mean audio manipulation isn't exactly new. Remember the year. That the tearjerker track of the late nat king cole posthumously.

Twenty twenty one. faa administrator. steve. Dixon signed an order directing zero tolerance policy against unruly airline passengers in the wake of recent troubling incidents. Recently we've seen a disturbing increase in incidents where airline passengers have disrupted flights with threatening or violent behavior. These incidents have stemmed both from passengers refusals to wear masks and from recent violence at the us capitol. This dangerous behavior can distract disrupt and threatened crew members safety functions and as a former airline captain. It's extremely concerning to me.
