"In a Playboy Bunny outfit for her husband's Um, so she presented her husband, Carl, who we never see with a memorial. I'm sorry, not a memorial birthday present a memorable birthday present by recreating the iconic 1978 Playboy cover picture that she was a part of it The time she did an original photo shoot in. 78 became the first country singer to pose for the magazine. So she didn't show too much because it wasn't about Nudity. It was really about promoting her brand, and so I think we have a little audio of her talking about it on instagram. Today is July. 20 is my husband Carl's birthday and you're probably wondering why I'm dressed like this one is for my husband's birthday. Remember sometime back I said I was going to pose on the Playboy magazine 75. Well, I'm 75. They don't have a magazine anymore. My husband always loved the original cover. Fire. Oy. So I was trying to think of something to do to make him happy. He still thinks I'm hot chick every 37 years and I'm not gonna try to talk him out of that. And I hope he agreed. What do you think, anyway? What I did for his birthday? I did a little photo shoot in just all outfit, and, uh, I had a cover made. Of the new Dolly, the old new darling, and in the first one say, Remember this. I was kind of a little butter ball in that one about extreme cheese. Now he'll probably think I'm cream cheese. I hope
"parton" Discussed on NEWS 88.7
"Parton is as popular as she's ever been, and throughout those decades of success Her signature look has never changed. Not even when she was being filmed getting a dose of Moderna. When I was little, I patterned my look after the town trial up in our town. I guess that's what you call them. Well, I thought she was the most beautiful thing. She had all this makeup and hair and all the top clothes and everything I want is that it impressed me. According to author Sarah Smarr, sh that look keeps pardon connected to her working class roots, like Pardon Sarah's Marsh. Grew up poor in the rural US south and women in her household related to Dolly Parton songs. Last fall, Smart spoke to day six host Brent Banbury about her book. She come by it Natural, Dolly Parton and the women who lived her songs. Here's part of that conversation. You dedicate this book to your grandma Betty. What does she have in common with Dolly Parton and the women dollies things about My grandmother who had a large hand in raising me. Actually, she and Dolly are almost precise Contemporaries. They were born just a few months apart, both born to poor rural families and Dolly Parton, early songs, many of which are very dark, haunting stories about adversities faced by poor rural women. Really describe the literal hardships of my grandmother's youth. That particular demographic has precious few ambassadors, or at least ones who seek to really dignify their experience in the way that Dolly does, so she's a special figure for that reason. Well, Dolly has told this joke many times. It takes a lot of money to look this cheap and given the kind of ribbing that she's endured for her appearance. Why do you think she has maintained her look over five decades? Well, this really gets at the heart of what I think Dolly Parton is all about over the course of all of those decades. Of course, she had the money and the smarts and and all the other resources that would be required to sort of transform herself if she so chose by transform herself. I mean class herself up if you will. Quit with the too tight clothes and the two low neckline and the two high hair and the too much makeup. Um, and the too twangy voice, But instead she really kind of dug her heels in double down even you know, she not only continued to do all of those things, which are sort of trappings of home for her. But did it to an almost, um, well to such an extreme effect that to some folks, she almost represents a caricature. And so there is a kind of performance going on there. And yet the paradox there in is that while she is at the height of fame and fortune, she's continually returning to home in a sense in the way that she presents herself physically and in her the cadence of her voice. In the stories that she tells in her songs, Um all amount to what you know in some places would be deemed quote unquote trash and the You know the the mission, I think, and I would add Mission accomplished. Is that in her doing so she forces the listener or the viewer to reconcile whatever negative stereotypes that they have about the place that she comes from dumb, ignorant. Bigoted and it immediately just by being herself. Just kind of obliterates all of those negative stereotypes..

Currently over sixteen hundred. Local communities provide the imagination library to almost eight hundred fifty thousand children each live across the us canada uk. Australia and ireland. It's amazing she also helped to find one of the covid nineteen vaccines so i mean i could go on and on about dali yes. We absolutely could. Let's bring it back to the theme park. Dollywood was opened in one thousand nine hundred eighty six and one of the really interesting things about this. Is that for all its growth and offering of thrill rides. The park still retains a lot of history in roots. The park now known as dollywood has gone by several other names throughout the years and it still pays homage to the older parts. There are four years in the modern park river town junction. The village country fair in craftsman. Bali dollywood offers a fully functional. Gristmill where you can get incredible cinnamon bread and rolls and a fully functional chapel. That was actually named after the doctor. That delivered dolly truly. This is a part where you can ride some incredible thrill rides and get a glimpse back in time. So talk more about dollywood with us. We welcome amber. Davis publicist for dollywood amber. Welcome to the show. Thanks so much for having me and we really appreciate you coming on chatting with us. So robin our both. We're going to confess it. Where such huge fans of dolly. So can you talk about what her influence in the park. Looks like it could be major things or just simple touch here and there. Just give us a break. Yeah absolutely. I mean who doesn't love dali if you know anything else are dolly. We claim. She has a national treasure every believes she's just about as genuine as they come. We do see dolly from time to time so it's neat that the park not only bears her name. But there's there's things around that just remind you of who she is and what she means to a community here and at large but start dollywood really was her vision and so it's her. Her name is on it. She has the managing partners who know the theme. Park world but dolly. She really started this park to bring more people to the area to create jobs. And she's done both of those things so just the very welcoming nature of the park in a. We've were proud. Always tell people. Were the friendliest park. We won that award so many times that they actually retired at so now have the best park experience award from the golden ticket amusement today awards dolly wants us to be welcoming into you. See that and just the. The charm of the park itself are host week. We actually call our employees hosts because people who come our guest and so everyone who works there were hosting you so it again. In the culture in the nature of of who we are dollywood. You're going to see There's there's actually if you want to come for the dalai factor. You're gonna find dolly. There's a whole museums. Actually a fantastic museum chasing rainbows. It has things one of the things. We like to joke about dolly. Never throw anything away whether it's warehouse in nashville or if it's at dollywood we've got our hands on just really neat things. I mean her birth certificate and a replica of the coat of many colors. Actually it's a replica. Because you know. Intrigue fashion was continued to be handed down so that code is is longtime because it was down the many more kids after dolly but Her mom made another one for on us to put on display. So you're gonna see the coat of many colors. You're going to see movies threats and costumes from her movies. You're going to see you know dresses. Steve warranty to award ceremonies. You're going to see her awards museums. Fantastic there's also a replica of her. We like to call it the tennessee mountain home. So if you don't know dolly was one of or is one of twelve children so she grew in a very small home and so we need to put that in the context of walking through this house credible. You're like how limped year. The beginnings replica of the home. In what i mean by replicated. Her brother built it. Her mother decorated it. So it's not the home. She grew up in. But it is true to representations of of dali's. You're gonna say you know things like that in the park. There's there's there's smaller things like a popular. Eatery is drive in will read is actually a nod to the very first place. Dolly parton had a hamburger so easter eggs. You know the pines theater another location. That people don't know but that's where she had her first concert. So there's lots of things throughout the park that it's not in your face dali if you want that there are different areas. Not the whole. It's not all dolly all the time. So there's there's a lot but you have to kind of know where you're looking. Yeah i remember go into dollywood way back might have been the early nineties and then just recently. My daughter's chorale group went for to sing at dollywood. And i was shocked at all of the roller coasters. I mean there are rides galore. Can you talk a little bit. About what kinds of rides and attractions are dollywood. Mentioned some of it but talk about more than rides and stuff. Yeah you know. A lot of people don't realize that jolly win actually is a fantastic coaster park. You know a lot of people Thinking oh it's it's probably small little entertainment park actually does quite a few of the the big name coasters that the coaster enthusiasts talking about so yet we have our parking one hundred sixty acres. And we've got eight bay coasters so we've got lightning rod which you know we love and we're very proud to to reintroduce this year. I had lots of work in the off. Season practically brand new track thunderhead. That's a wooden coaster while eagle was the first wing coaster in the state So we liked to go. After unique rides we have fire chaser. Express which is a considered a family coaster. The reason is considered family is because it has a very low height requirements. Thirty nine inches. My actually two little boys and both of them were writing. Fire taser express when they were three. So you know on a coaster is kinda crazy but it's a fun unique ride. It launched as you out of the station forward but then by the time you're ending the ride you get launched backward. So that's it's a dual launch coaster. So that's a lot of fun so we we look for a lot of the The rides that are unique or that offer something that people haven't experienced
How Libraries Can Help You Learn, Connect and Grow With Rebecca Stoltz
"I am excited today. Because you've got a guest on. This is a guess as a little out of the box. From who've you brought on before. And i'm really excited that rebecca salsas here and What what are you guys talking about today. yes so. I'm really excited. That rebecca was able to join us today. Rebecca is the executive director of the josephine county Library foundation and is really an integral part. The library there in just being county. Where grants pass. Where i live is located. And i just wanted to spend some time talking with rebecca about the value that libraries bring to our community and to our lives and so rebecca. Thank you so much for being here. Absolutely thank you for having me ma. It's our pleasure our pleasure so We tell us just a little bit about how long you've been working with the library and What your position entails right now so i have been through. Many different transitions At our library. And i've been working about eight years back. When the library was a nonprofit i was doing the fundraising and now i've transitioned over to the library foundation and i'm not the executive director and my job is to help raise funds to support special programs and things that are outside of the library. District's budget very nice. Very nice and and i know there's a long history there with what happened in josephine county with the library system Do you want to just give a brief overview of that of what happened to it. Seems like almost twenty years ago now with libraries being defended and then what what happened in the community after that absolutely so in two thousand and eight the libraries were closed and e funded and the community really rallied. They wanted to have a library in their communities so it was a grassroots efforts and they raced funds and was able to st- originally started out of you know checking out. Books are lending out books in their vehicles in a parking lot and then they were able to raise enough money to open up. The libraries and tons of work was involved with that and our library system. Which has four branches. One in grants pass one in williams one out in the ohio valley and one out of wolf creek operated as a nonprofit for ten years so phenomenal work. I'm and it was really exciting to see a community so passionate and really finding the value of libraries in a community because there there weren't a whole lot of libraries being run as nonprofits at that time. We're there no. Our library system is kind of like a unicorn very unique. We had over three hundred volunteers at one time. Doing all of that work which is just amazing. And even within it becoming a nonprofit. There were still three over three hundred volunteers that were checking in books. Checking out books doing all of that work. In fact we have about two hundred fifty volunteers. That still are doing that. Work today. so wonderful i my. My sister has has volunteered to the library. Here for years before covid. Kind of shut down the the day to day operations of checking in and out books but What what. I wanted to kind of touch on i. I remember this is this is my embarrassing story is probably sixteen. Seventeen years ago. I was much younger and definitely not as wise and i was standing in line at a community event here in jackson county and we were at the library and i had made an offhand comment about. Why do people need libraries anymore. and what. i didn't realize. I was standing right behind. One of the board members for the jackson county library and she took me to task for about five minutes explaining the value of libraries to the community. So i would love for you to just take a minute And i'm gonna humbly ask why our library still relevant today. It's a great question and we hear it quite often. Actually you know not. Everyone has the same resources in today's world and libraries are the technology access points for so many people and we see that even more now that we've endured through a pandemic and libraries as a whole. There's just so much more than book. Repositories the cultural and community centers. And our library here in grants pass even attracts more foot traffic then the local post office so when you think about all those long lines in the post office and how busy it always. Is your library here. Josephine community library is is busier than that. And really we service as venues for community meetings host workshops from anything of you wanna learn about coating to changing a tire and i could also take a task for a long time about the importance of libraries. But just a couple numbers to run by. You is each month. More than twenty. Two thousand items are checked out. And they're in homes within our community and in a county where at least a third of our residents don't have computer or internet access at home patrons lock more than fifteen thousand computer sessions in a year and have nearly forty three thousand personal devices. Connect to the library's wifi so it is a library is so much more than just books in building. It's really an important piece of the community where people can connect and grow. I just can't agree more promptly. What got me back into. The library was have having a daughter. She's six now. You know taking her back to the library to have those experiences in the children's roman being able to kind of just see the books touch the books and kind of just have that that feel of what a library feels like is just phenomenal. I know you. There's just so many Children's programs happening at the library is as well absolutely and we have families with kids of all ages coming to participate. Whether it's our summer reading program we have sensory story times the dolly parton imagination library program or registering kits through josephine county to receive free books. Mail to them Every month and and that that is just such a fantastic program. That was a partnership. I think with The library in rotary there in josephine county. If i'm correct but That is really phenomenal. That is any any family can sign up for it. Any child and from birth to five years old every month. They get a new book in the mail. Mail to them. Yeah it's it's wonderful and we have over two thousand kids currently receiving books every month in josephine county through that program and and thanks to all for the rotary groups in grants pass and and the many funders of that program.

Pinning Down Prostate Cancer
"Well i of course. Our hosts quadruple board. Certified doctor of internal medicine pulmonary disease critical care and neuro critical care and still fighting on the frontlines over the war on. Covid my very good friend. Dr steven tae back. How you doing steve. I'm well thank you as you've heard joining us from johns hopkins medicine. Doctor kenneth pinta. He's the director of research for the james buchanan. Brady urological institute. He's the co director prostate cancer research program for the sidney kimmel cancer center. He's a professor of urology. He's a professor of oncology. he's a professor of pharmacology and molecular sciences. Welcome dr to. What do you do with all your spare time can. This is not meant to be a softball question. But it's going to sound that way. I'm trying to understand from your inside. Perspective. what is it about the environment you work in a johns hopkins that produces these kind of outcomes. These ratings and the international recognition part of it is tradition. Johns hopkins was founded as the first research university in the united states and we've always placed the tripartite mention of patient care education to students and research on equal footing. So that we're always seamlessly combining those and the other piece of tradition is johns hopkins hospital in the medical school itself. We defined american medicine at johns hopkins with william oastler. Starting out saying we're gonna do medicine differently. Use the term. Medical residents started at johns hopkins. Because ostler made. The doctors live in the hospital to be trained in. So that's where the term came from. You know we have this dome at the hospital. With with the wings of the building and medicine rounds what referred to the fact that they would go round and round the dome to the different wards. And you know we carry that sort of tradition with pride and people love to work there and we've always attracted really smart people who love madison in love taking care of people and really love combining that with the research that powers the next generation of medicines. Forward dr parton. Your department chair talked about. While other hospitals use reports for urological surgery hopkins actually makes their own. Robots isn't making davinci robot. No we use a commercial robots like everyone else but what we are doing is creating the next generation of robots to work with mri machines. We have danced in. Our department is making a special robot that does that. The hopkins whiting school of engineering is developing the next generation of robots to integrate imaging with robotic surgery. A lot of that is not just hardware. it's software we're living in a pretty high tech era. We've come a long way in medicine but still so many men die of prostate cancer. What are we messing up here in. We have to do to fix this. So you know in this time of covid and so many people dying of kobe. You know it's an infectious disease. We gotta do better and we tend to forget about these other illnesses that are plaguing the planet you know if you look around the world. Ten million people a year are dying of cancer in the us. Six hundred thousand people are dying of cancer. Thirty thousand men die of prostate cancer. Every year and cancer of all kinds including prostate cancer is curable if you find it in time because we can do surgery or radiation in jewelry you but unfortunately in about fifty thousand men per year we find the cancer too late. We find the cancer. After it is escape the prostate and metastatic cancer virtually of all kinds is incurable and prostate cancer. Unfortunately metastasized spreads to the bones as first sight and it causes a lot of problems for guys in the bones including pain and eventually kills them and we can talk about how that happens but essentially we fail because we don't cure people because we don't find the cancer in time. Let me ask you a question about that. Actually because i've been quoted by colleagues that if you're fifty years old you have a fifty percent chance that you actually have prostate cancer and at sixty sixty percent chance that you've probably already have prostate cancer and so on and so forth and it would beg the question. Would it not make sense to prophylactically. Remove the prostate. And then obviously the the major impediment to that is the major side effects. What does the thought process about that in. Where are we in terms technologically of mitigating the terrible side effects of impotence and incontinence. So i think there's two aspects to that question steve that we just need to touch on because the other thing you hear. All the time is that oh prostate cancer. You don't have to worry about it. You're going to die with it not from it. You know we do see that. Eighty percent man age eighty if you look in their prostates. If they've gotten killed by a car accident you'll see prostate cancer. So essentially prostate cancer exists in two forms one form. Is this indolent slow growing low grade cancer. That probably shouldn't even be called the cancer. But it still is in we find it by screening and and those are the guys that can be treated with active surveillance. We don't need to treat their cancers where a lot smarter about that now than we were even a few years ago. The other kind of cancer is the aggressive prostate cancer. That is not the kind you find on all types whereas the kind that's growing quickly that we have to get out before it spreads so prostate cancer is definitely has a hereditary component. If you have a father or an uncle who had prostate cancer your your risk of developing prostate cancer is double if you have to family members. It's quadruples you had three family members. You're gonna get it so it is familial. There are some genetic drivers. Like vr rca to that lead to a higher incidence of prostate cancer. And we definitely say if you've have family history us should start screening sooner.

This story of selling bank catholics chimes with how we in the beats a bass bass produce work for an audience. It proves that when you work is relevant to others this more reason to keep going the blog articles you produced back in two thousand nine nineteen. Maybe didn't get many views when they were first published. But that doesn't mean the not value sitting within your overall bank of work similar to music artists. Your job is to keep plane so that you keep developing your audience when people find you they can then join the dots and get a more complete picture of y you share is relevant to them. Those articles that received little traffic into nineteen are important in the context of your overall efforts.

Starting the a space that people can visit but also record of how you've developed in the music industry return longevity. What about you. How will you know wherever you're back catalogue is where something it won't be. The same. ballpark is bob. Dylan's three hundred million pounds. When he sold his six hundred songs universal music for how we find out. If what you share has worth you would. Immediate has been around every week apart from some short breaks since october. Two thousand thirteen almost eight years. Now here's why building a back. Catalog of content provides vani in both the short and long after the first one. Is this over time. People see the value provide be prepared to play. The long game is so important. I wonder where ought be now if i hadn't been producing content every week for you at the median. I reckon it would be somewhere where i am today when people recognize. Your work is something that they can get behind you have a license to develop momentum secondly it can support your wider efforts. Your back catalog makes it easier to introduce for new initiatives. The one thing that has remained constant from me has been my writing. This was the tree. I planted back in twenty thirteen and new branches of grown. It made introducing in person and then online live events easier. Don't think of the word you produce in isolation look at it as a way to connect your intentions and third lake is greater use beyond the immediate space producing a back. Catalog extend your scope by this. I mean what stance a piece of work in one channel can extend into other formats. For instance blogs have become talked topics for other people's podcast. One single article became a webinar in april. Twenty twenty on your first ten email subscribers the next point is that it becomes and it brings people closer or from people. The proof of the work. You've already done helps you by helping them. Make a decision go back catalogue in contrast to say tha that competitors whose output may be more sporadic demonstrates perseverance. Next point is that it contributes to sales while message of this. You the media online. That i'm talking to you now is not around selling your business based on your content. Your work can be indirectly related to revenue for instance. The world you produce can also present a way to sell products and services but in a way that isn't merely emphasizing for instance being a trusted business increases the impact. You can make and this links to one of the aspects of what the month of learning represents a recent podcast looked at the impact of trust. Next is your were becomes a reference and search to your back catalogue can become a place for us to take from an somewhere. Search engines recognize websites. We've over three hundred and eleven index pieces of work c. Two hundred and thirty six percent more traffic than no sign of not too many pages and this is ups ball. What this means. Is that the better. Your ongoing work is indexed. There is more for a search engine to look through and support your search rankings ultimately ultimately want visit us to stick around on your site for that you need to offer work they will enjoy and lastly grow from it. The more you practice delivering something the better you become by learning. How the audio space works. I've become a better speaker by sharing a short video every week for the of the media weekly email. I think become a better presenter by writing every week. I've become a stronger writer. Whilst as an emphasis on creating roughness never forget this contributes to your own personal development. Let's roundup similar to writing and sherry music. You just put all your effort into a once a year christmas. Oh you have to keep introducing new material. That can stand the test of time all comes down to having that ability to keep going is what you're creating talking to be worth. Something is what you're producing contributing to your overall message actions in commercial delivery to give you the freedom to play an experiment. Why if your entire back catalogue disappear tomorrow but people let you know what they show concern.

This is the interesting thing like reading all this stuff like you always hear a source close to WHO. Exactly the it could be the guy that was dropping off the seamless order you know, told her house then turns around and sells the story so I. Take it with a grain of salt I, think Sandra bullock is is strong enough as a person to go. Okay, great doesn't matter as long. He's happy all the great I'm doing my thing. Let him do his.

"parton" Discussed on It's Been a Minute with Sam Sanders
"So you're a creative. Who feels the need to do these side projects? What made you say the side project this year or two or three years? We'll be Dali got a lot of a lot of a give you I'm GonNa give you like a three or four answer and They should all be sort of understood not chronologically because they all happen at once. You know the first thing is i. Guess the the moment I got really interested in Dolly I mean. I grew up in Tennessee so I grew up in the south and Nali partners sort of the patron saint of the place. I I grew up and I mean I certainly knew of her knew her music. But I'd never really like stared directly at any of her songs are her influence and so she I was just kinda there. So part of it is that I've always felt like I knew Dali but I never actually knew her. There is that but I think more contemporary the Two Thousand Sixteen I she Came to Queen's did a gigantic stadium show and it was right at the moment when The general election was heating up. And I just remember like how this day you know you watch TV in the morning and you see the the headlines and it's just this garbage bridge fire of political discourse and then that night Dolly Parton goes and plays a stadium show in queens and first of all everybody around me was freaking how they were so excited and now caught me off guard. I didn't realize that everybody loved Dolly. Everybody here yeah you know in New York City which is in such a dumb naive realization but it really did surprise me and then when they came back from the show everyone was telling me these stories of what it was like to go to a Dali. The show where you saw this incredibly diverse multiracial multiethnic multi age Politically diverse most importantly audience. You have all these different constituencies little slices of America Slam together and they're being polite right. I mean they weren't solving the world's problems or any nice can show there. Yeah they were hanging out so that was the moment I got really interested in Dali but I would be lying if I told you. That was the real reason I did the podcast podcast in addition to growing up in Tennessee and in addition to the two thousand sixteen thing is that in twenty thirteen So I was saying non-linear Right Twenty Thirteen my my dad is a doctor and DOLLY GETS INTO A minor car accident in Nashville and then ends up being taken to vanderbilt. My Dad is a doctor. He ends up giving her medical advice in one of those random send him to a survey she was totally fine and he was only her doctor for a second but suddenly he had a connection to her and then they got to be pals and so so as I was having this thought I had a way to get a message to her dad so it was like you know described call. That's called Ali. Yeah that was that was pretty much I would tell you something. I probably shouldn't tell you this is what I want. I mean they got to be really good friends and it was always like. I don't live in Tennessee anymore. So it wasn't in my face but like every so often his phone would ring and would be her abby that I like I didn't actually believe it was Dolly Parton because that's too weird. My Dad is not that kind of guy who hangs hangs out with famous people and so there's a part of me it didn't believe it but then she sent my dad a little guitar signed from Dolly Parton to give to one of my kids and I remember seeing seeing the guitar and seeing the big cursive on the guitar. I think he really does know Dolly Parton. Leave him at first. I didn't unbelievable unbelievable. It's not that I actively didn't believe him. I just somehow it just as like that's too weird. I can't actually fully take that in and so when I saw the guitar I thought Oh I think he really does know her and It happened to be more perfect season three and we were doing an album of of different musicians. Interpreting amendments from the Constitution petition. And so I asked him you know can i. Can you set up a meeting where I could picture on the idea of. Maybe her doing a song which she did and then at that same meeting when I finally met her. I also pitched her on this podcast as well and you know years later here we are. I'm GonNa tell you one thing that stood out to me as soon as I began to listen to the show and I've binged engine on long South Western road trip just before Thanksgiving and I noticed from the start of the Dolly Parton. podcast a thing that you're already famous for or with radio lab the intense scoring and sound effects and music which we all love With the Dalai podcast. There were these moments moments in the episode. Where obviously you'd have to play a bit of a Dolly Parton Song but you and your team would add sound effects or some new repercussion on top of it like at the end of dollar ticks? You've got Joe. Lean running like with the new backbeat. Yeah and at first I was like this is sacrilegious That mess with Dali's music. How did you get that right because you could have gotten it wrong? Yeah Yeah I've I've I've so gratified to hear that reaction This is not this is this is about Dolly Parton in a kind of multi not verse right like the SORTA I I keep using the the the metaphor of the multi-diverse like each episode is a dimension in the multi because she is kind of everywhere like she has has many many worlds. She talks to so many different people. She has different Chapters in her life that are radically different. And so for me. Like one. Dimension of the multi-diverse was the way that Dali's music travels the way that it can almost like pierce genre and in cut at an angle across twelve genres. And so for me. It was important to try that musically try to embody that musically And so I you know I I did it a lot in certain places and then I played it for some people. And they're like too much STU Miley so then I scaled back and try to just be small footprint about it. I ended up remixing. Joe Lean in the process. Because I just couldn't help it. Listen jet just hearing when you say that as soon as you say I ended up remixing Joe Lean. My heart stops such a big risk. They don't say don't say you don't say your beauty is beyond was there one remix or update of one of her songs that you had done and you can't do it. This will not work. I I would never touch. I don't think anyone ever should touch. I will always love you. you messing with too much too much culture road. If you and Dahlie made a Admi will always love you remix for the album. I would listen I would will shoot you if Dolly walked in the room. Said Jad were doing this. I would do it. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah I mean she said no to Elvis on that song. The you know that story. No now he wanted to make that song and I think his His business person whose name I'm forgetting colonel. Something or other colonels. He he wanted wanted to own half the publishing. Oh No that's Sally Song. And she's like no she wasn't she wasn't a huge star at that point but she's still learning down so I I am really interested. In the timing of this podcasts launch. It comes in two thousand nineteen which kind of seems like Dali's year like this Dolly. We're watching. She's been on a bunch of awards. Shows Getting Honors Performa people. She has a Netflix show. Then there's your podcast as well. Did you plan this timing. Just worked out out that way. I had hoped to release it earlier in the year. I knew that she had stuff happening late in the year. I didn't realize it was going to be quite to this level I know that with Dolly I. I know speaking to her manager. Dana Zell he He will tell you the decade ago. Maybe a little bit longer. A her fan base was mostly over the age of sixty. You know because I mean when I grew up with Dolly just a touch point g there was the the islands in the Stream. Dolly there was nine to five Joe. Lean and then there was like a long eighties period where she was making pop hits but she wasn't and I'm talking late late eighties. She wasn't hugely relevant to people my age or because the late eighties were full of music. That was not Dali's music. Exactly heavy abrasive pop exactly and she dabbled in some of that stuff. You know in in a tiny way and but yeah I know. She wasn't like speaking to a young teenage kid the way that she seems to be right now. But what Danny will tell you that you know over that decade and maybe it has a little bit to do with her being unhappy Montana and being aunt Dolly and because all of those young people right huge audience massive audience all those. Those young fans grew up with Miley Cyrus and they had like kind of crazy Dolly who kind of became their aunt and so now though all those people are in their thirties and they're loving Dali as adults adults. And so. That's what Dolly will tell you. God's heart of it yeah like you know. Miley helped kind of bridge her to an entirely new demographic. God bless Miley. Yeah Yeah but I also think it's partially it's Dali represents a thing in our culture right now that very few other people represent which is this person who can span ban difference who can kind of talk to everybody and I think that's and she has lived in epic life. Anybody who knows anything about Dolly knows knows that she is like the female odysseus like she has journeyed An incredible dirty and there. I think that is speaking to people like that longevity. I think really speaks to people time for a break when we come back. How is Dolly Parton political without ever saying anything political.

"Dolly Parton of course the ultimate entertainer she is funny talented she looks like a walking rhinestone and she can sing her song writing has soundtrack generation after generation from country music lover as to the LGBTQ community to immigrants building their lives in America Dolly Parton is an icon radio host and producer Chad album ride maybe you know him from the show Radiolab says growing up in Tennessee Dolly Parton was just everywhere and after his dad to struck up a friendship with Dolly Parton we'll get into that Jed began to think more about Dolly and what her music means to the American experience and he made a podcast about it it's call Dolly Parton's America in jobs here now hi hi thank you for having me great to have you so you met her through your dad yes yeah my dad at twenty thirteen Dolly gets into a minor car accident national taken it up she was fined taken to Venable hospital my dad was one of the doctors and the adviser a little bit and then eventually they just became pals and so when I got interested in Dolly I had a way to actually get a message to her so I nepotism works yeah lessons with this by you and public radio yes so okay it is unlikely because your dad is a Lebanese immigrant Anya she's she's a represents America right americana or at least that's what that's what we think going into it yeah well I always took her community growing up in Tennessee I we sort of saw her as this the patron Saint of the place I grew up they didn't entirely except people of Lebanese origin I mean this is like during Gulf War one and so I you know had I have complicated feelings about Tennessee and so to some degree I've always took her to be a regional figure that carried some of that baggage with me but I will you know one of things I discovered this podcast is that she is so much more than that right I think we all have this image of who she is in our minds and not least because of her looks which she you asked about her about her appearance pretty early on and I just wanna play a really short clip of what she says this is what you're gonna notice it you can't do that to the public I mean it's like a little comedy thing talking about her breasts yeah yeah I mean I think with that portion of the conversation we were talking about I had Astor like it going up in the eighties early early eighties mid eighties I for me Dolly Parton was the person who went on David Letterman or Johnny Carson or Jay Leno and they'd come to talk about her music for maybe thirty seconds but then inevitably the conversation would shift to how she looks they have certain guidelines.

"We did a little QNA, and I don't even think the cameras were rolling at this point. She was just answering questions a girl stood up and Astor question. And, and after she sat back down Dolly answered her question than just said, I knew, you know, I don't think so she goes no one knew you got you on camera going through much trash, and then she just looked she goes, you know, somebody loves he when they go through your trash. And we were like, oh my gosh. What's happening is okay? Do we need to remove this person or is it but Dolly was great? She, she let her know. I know exactly who you are. And annot your little intense, but I'm going to be classy, and we're going to keep this conversation going, and everything's gonna be okay. And she handled it beautifully. Wow. And I learned right than in. There's like, okay. Being famous is hard, but you can still be really classy with how you handle people, and that is such a good point. It, it just blew my mind and, and she could have been very upset about. Well, she could've walked in the room and said, I need you to take that girl out of here or whatever, you know, and hope she wouldn't mind me telling the story, I don't think she would it it's all just to say she handles herself with so much class, and grace and is very kind to people, very, very kind of people, and if Dolly Parton, you know, one of a small handful of the most famous people on planet earth can handle herself that way, then everybody needs to get it together, and always, always early, and always professional and never lets us down ever. And I just I hold everybody to that standard probably unfairly. But how do you think why do you think do you think that's how she is so successful, one of the reasons why obviously, she's one of the greatest song. Writers singers performers artists of all time. But I'm top of it. She has his work ethic, this kindness. Do you think that has attributed to her? Yeah. Superstardom. Yeah. Absolutely work ethic. You know, few notice people's work ethic, as artists, can you tell with artists coming through new ones who has work ethic, and who doesn't? Yeah, absolutely. And there are times, I again, I wouldn't name names, but there's been a few artists were thought you don't have the best force, and you're pretty good looking, you know, and you, you dress. Okay. But there's I can sense this work ethic. And I'm like you're gonna blow everybody away and you're gonna be here. Twenty years from now. And, and I have seen it over and over again. And. Yes, an-, and people like Dolly, she so likable, you just wanna root for her people. Love Blake Shelton. You know what is it about Blake? Do you think people love, I sense of humor?.

"So you can now take an honors course at the university of Tennessee that's called Dali's America. And it's this seminar where they use Dali's life story to help better understand Appalachian culture, though Dali grew up about half an hour or so from Knoxville where the university's main campuses and the class actually looks at things like stereotypes of hillbillies and the way they represented in popular culture. It's it's class. I'd probably like the take. So this is gonna sound strange, but we actually have to thank at least partially for the existence of Buffy the vampire. Slayer Buffy. That's the one. So back in the eighties, Dalian or former measure and roommate sandy gallon founded this production company called sand dollar and dollar actually co produced Buffy as well as it's been off angel and gallon was listed as an exact producer, but partner she stayed out of the spotlight. Even though she she deserves some of the credit. Wow, you know, I think we've talked about this before, but of course you. Member Dali, who was the sheep that was the first successful cloning of a mammal. Well, it was in fact named after Dolly Parton. Now the sheets original name was six. L l three, which is not quite as catchy in my opinion, but supposedly one of the stockmen who was there at the time of six l. threes birth decided to give her the name Dolly because she was cloned from a memory. So now I don't think we have to explain that one, but it makes you wonder like if Dolly Parton would have been offended by this, but as she always does, she just rolled with it and said, I was honored, there's no such thing as bad publicity's. I like that she even made it into a little joke. There. So I think it's funny that Dahlie wants decide to enter a Dolly Parton lookalike contest in Los Angeles, and this was just for the fun of it. But the best part obviously is that she didn't come anywhere close to winning a apparently. They felt that she was too short to be convincing, and the winner ended up being someone in drag. And she, of course, just found this entirely hilarious. But the good thing was that she actually got to walk around some of our biggest fans, and no one, no one in the audience noticed her. That's awesome. Here's something that I'm excited about. There's apparently an anthology series based on Dolly songs that's being developed for net flicks and supposedly will be released next year. That'll be an eight part series. And each episode will be based on a different Dolly Parton song and they haven't announced which songs yet and they're obviously so many to choose from, but I'm really looking forward to seeing it. Yeah, that's incredible. Well, as if we needed any more proof that Dolly always remembers where she came from and hasn't forgotten how to do things yourself, do you know that before she goes on tour, Dolly, actually cooks a bunch of food puts it all in freezer bags, and then loads it up on the bus. And she says, quote, I do cook for a week before I go on tour. So I put stuff in the freezer. So we'll have great country food. If we don't have what I want at all the places we stop. Oh, man, that is so wonderful. Yeah, I, I can't decide which fact I love most in all of this, but just thinking about like the fact that she is partially responsible for Buffy. Being out there, but taking almost no credit as a producer, the whole humility around the look alike contest. And of course, always remembering where she came from with that last fact Van Gogh, I think I have to give you the trophy this week. I was so nervous. You were gonna say, I think I have to give it to Tristan because he's still wearing the wig. Hundred side now I might have given it to him, but the wig is just it's really kind of fallen out of place. So it's just just getting worse.
