"And we're in South Central. So just remember that I don't believe what you read in the papers. I can't see. How are you? Hi, well, another green book site here in L. A is thie infamous Clifton's cafeteria downtown for people who may not know it described Clifton's and tell us why it was so important for the black community back in the day. Well, Clifton's was a special place and it still is. You know, it's a five story cafeteria. First of all, so that's unique in and of itself. It was owned by a man named Clifford Clinton, who was an incredible humanitarian and he was a Christian in the real sense of the word. You know he had seen abject poverty. He had traveled to China, a cz missionary with his parents. He just could not accept that a country this wealthy is America would have people hungry. So when he opened up his restaurant, he swore he would feed everybody, regardless of whether they were able to pay And that's what made Clifton's very different right on the menu. It said. Pay what you wish dying unless delighted. He sold so many five cent meals and gave away free meals. It was Depression era restaurant, and it was listed in the Green Book. So he opened up an integrated the space and at the time was it one of the few integrated restaurants in Los Angeles? Well, Los Angeles was a unique place when you look at America at that time, and you see that you know the South had it's Jim Crow laws and people assumed the rest of the country was liberal or especially the West. In California. We think we're so liberal out here. But the truth was segregation was in full force throughout the country, and it was even more confusing and even more dangerous to leave the South. If you Black and just travel West because you didn't know where you were Welcome or not, because there were no signs. And that's why the Green Book was still really critical, even in places like downtown Los Angeles. Now I understand that you're trying to document every green book site on Route 66. Why well, actually looking to document Green book sites throughout the country. I started on Route 66 because I developed a partnership with the National Park Service, and I was writing a book on Route 66 was a travel guide, and I was just struck at how little had been written about the route in terms of its earlier days. It started 1926. Ah, lot of the things we read and learn about Route 66 of that heyday 19 fifties quote unquote good old days of the white suburban families who jump in their Airstream trailers and being a black woman. Self. I thought there's got to be more to this story, and I was just tired of 99% of all the people who've written books about Route 66 or white males. I felt like there's got to be a different angle here, and I wondered, where were the black people who drove Route 66. And then I learned about the Green Book. I reached out to the National Park Service because they have a route 66 Corridor preservation program and the director there, Kaisa Bertha Lee was just Really loved my work. I loved what they were doing when she said We'd love for your documents. Some of these sites does l a have more preserved sites from the Green Book than a lot of other cities. I'm not Particularly more than other cities. New York has a densest concentration of green book sites because Victor H. Green, who created the Green Book was a postal worker. He is from New York, and the first green Book was published in 1936 and he felt like even in New York. I need to figure out where we can go, that's comfortable, and so he started. It was inspired by Jewish travel guides in the thirties that were being developed for the Bush Bell. What's the most unusual sight that you found? It's hard to say, But there is one that stands out in my mind. In Victorville, California, There's a site called Murray's Dude Ranch, and it was quite special. It was billed as the On Ly Negro Dude Ranch in America. You know Pearl Bailey bought it in the fifties, and she ran it for a while. Joe Louis used to come there and he had his entourage, the boxer. It was on the cover of every magazine. It was well known. And when you look at these photographs of these black men and cowboy hats, and you know a lot of kids, it was one of the first places where there was integration between Black and white Children playing in recreational spaces. This was unheard off. You know this was something that throughout the country blacks were expressly kept out of recreational sites or pools or any type of place where kids would play together. Even in Pasadena, there was a pool that was segregated. They had international day quote unquote. And it was the last day before they would clean the pool. So it was when the pool was the most dirtiest was when blacks could use it, and then they made sure to tell white people. Don't worry. After the blacks get out, we're going to clean it. This was a reality, You know that we're dealing with in California. Another thing about Route 66. It's interesting to note in terms of like, how I came into this project is because there were sundown towns throughout the United States describe it. That means sundown. Towns were all white communities, and they were all white on purpose. James Lohan is a sociologist out of Harvard who wrote a book called Sundown Towns. And he's estimated that there were over 10,000 of these sundown towns throughout the country. So again, most people assume that segregation in the Jim Crow laws were curled in the south. But that really wasn't the case. Once you left us out, there were sundown towns, which was largely a northern phenomenon, and these towns were all white. You could not be In the town. If you're black after six PM again, you didn't quite know if you're passing through a son downtown. Some of them had signs that literally just said, Don't let the sun go down on you here. But there were other towns you didn't quite know. Sometimes they would ring a bell at six o'clock and you would know what that meant. Anybody Black, who was working in the town would know what that meant. They knew they had to leave. But if you were driving through, you wouldn't know, And it's estimated that there were 44 out of the 89 counties along Route 66 were sundown towns. So you had to keep moving along. You had to keep no, you had to have a plan. You had to make sure that when you were driving through, you weren't going to be passing through one of these sundown towns after 6 p.m. You needed the green book to figure out where you could stay once you even got to a multicultural or say more, You know, ethnic place like Albuquerque, where there was a large Latino population and American Indian population even once you got to Albuquerque on Route 66. Out of the 100 motels at lined Central Avenue along Route 66 on Ly about six of them accepted black people again If you didn't have that guide once you were there, you know you'd be knocking on doors and being turned away, so there was a very real threat to personal safety. And there was also just simple convenience of getting from a to B. Specifically on Route 66 with sundown towns even once you got out to California,.

"Hello Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the Philly Blunt. My name's Johnny Guitar Re this Greg and we are extremely excited about our guest this week on this show. A living legend agent a woman who has done more for dance in the city of Philadelphia than probably anybody else ever get easily and and it's a it's an honor honor and a privilege ladies and gentlemen. Please welcome Joan Myers Brown. Okay great welcome thank you thank you. Well we're excited to have you on this show We wanted to talk We wanted to talk a bit which cover a lot of bases. Because you know you've been doing this for for a while now and I wanted to start with The nineteen fifties when you were dancing You were performing with names like Sammy Davis Nat King Cole. Duke Ellington Folks like that and I wanted to see if you could take it gets back to that time a little bit. Well you know. I've let me start with saying I wanted to be a ballet dancer and that time there were opportunities for girls in Bali so I ended up doing nightclub work and I was the girl they always let put on points us. South kind of always featured always had a good job so I was lucky to always work with the top stars. I I work with the most longs was Pearl Bailey. So she's from Philly spilling girls so we did a lot of Vegas New York Phoenix for me always excited by the travel. Well yeah of course but Went went sometimes. When you find that you only still only black person on the show like we're allowed only black girl for a while and it was always like you had the fit in when we were in Vegas segregation was rampant? That time the other girls who have to stay afterwards I had to go to the black side so ah we would always go in the back door even Pearl Bailey and Sammy Davis had to go back to the black side of town. So that time. Wasn't you know really exciting. It was his the job I was dancing. I was happy met a lot of people and with Sammy Davis our with him at the club Harlem in Atlantic City. You know so I I had a good the time I was young. I was cute I but I saw a lot. I learned a lot of what I learned. I still use with my school role and with the company. What got you into dance? High School my gym teacher at high school to me. You know you should be dancer while she was a ballet dancer with the Philadelphia Office. Civic Ballet with Philadelphia I think it was civic about Littlefield Ballet Company. But that time you didn't get a degree in dance. You became a gym teacher. You Got P.. We do agree and but she's to teach dance after school dance club and she invited me again. I was the only black girl. And she encouraged me and I had the attitude. If you can do that I can do it. But it was very difficult because none of the schools in the city were taken black girls into their school and that have is one of the reasons why I started my school and I stopped. Dancing is to try to give some other black girl the opportunity. I thought I didn't yet. Did you know at an early age that it was something the thing that you wanted to do as a career and then you kind of got the rude awakening that there weren't necessarily those avenues. Guess what no of course I I. I went to the neighborhood dancing school in our community but I lost my shoes after the second week and my mom said I don't have another dollar fifty. You can't go anymore but I I really wanted to be a artist. I like watercolor broker. And I thought I'd be an artist but I said when I got to be ninety I was going to start being grandma And oldies make a lot of money selling as my next career. But I haven't painted in a long long time but once I got the bug for dance. visit seem very detailed work. How'd you lose your shoes? I was seven eight years. It just put them down in Philly. Did you grow up in the South West Philly from Woodland Avenue Girl Grace Fairy So you start the dance school and this is one thousand nine hundred sixty. Is that right exactly. The School of Sixty years old and my company will be fifty fifty s old. And I keep telling everyone I'll be forty seven so the early days of the school wasn't in a smaller building energy. Do it out of your house. And how did you get it get Roman actually. I started fifty second. Who on that? Okay at a little loft above a children's dress shop right there. I got kicked out. We made too much. I moved around the corner to fifty second and chestnut over music store got kicked out and and I ended up at sixty third and market street on the corner above a restaurant. I was there of a sixteen years and then I when once I started the company company I needed more space than I found this building awesome so the company started in one thousand nine hundred seventy and that was because you had the students and then they. We didn't really have anywhere to go because there was still racist in the dance world. Exactly have you seen it. You know that's been there fifty years. Have you seen a fair amount of change in those fifty years or no well in the modern dance feel integration has always been a part of what happens. There is as a failing that along as you can dance. You can dance ballet world. We're still trying to give black girls in the valley companies. You know usually see they hire a man he has to be strong. Pick the girls up there around. So they'll take a man but we still don't have Pennsylvania ballet fifty years later has no oh black girls valley company right here in Philadelphia and I call him out on. They always have manual. See a picture of a guy never girl so we really need to. I think it's because the European art form they think it has to maintain that European appealed and look but we want it to look like America. Everybody have a chance. So is that an ongoing source of frustration. For you that that the ballets I been so slow to adapt is not frustration. Means I just gotTa Work Harder Hall. What is it about dance that you love so much? which I don't know I think the challenge of the physicality the the the for the fact that there's so much to learn as far as discipline? Perseverance all the things you learned being focused. I mean a lot of my kids like Blando Ronald Brown. She's you know. She attributes dance to her career as a councilwoman. The woman Lee Daniels. He was bad as all. Get out here you know. He's famous lessee. Odem these guys that use dance dance and what they learn and they are. It's not just dance. What you learn in the arts and being passionate about what you do in being focused and having an appeal for not only satisfying yourself but making other people feel good with what you do absolutely absolutely how many kids have passed through here? PEOPLE HAS TO I. Well I when I started. I started with thirty kids and I think I've had maybe up to eight hundred now. Think about seven or eight girls taught have schools. Aw so even outside of the city. Lot of the kids in my company teaching colleges because they got their degree in dance so thousands thousands. But you know it's so funny with my dance school when I started. I didn't want to be called Miss. Joan has made all the case called me Jones now so we can be relative and so I know now if somebody calls me ask John. I know they went to dancing school. If they say Yo. J B they were in the company. Was it an easy transition to go from dancer to teacher. No no no because I love it I was doing and children like sponges. If you give it to them and give it to them with love. They absorb it and they give it back. I like teaching young children teenagers. I could do without sometime sometime. But they are the fruit of your works and what does a typical day look like for you. What are your responsibilities throughout? The course of the day you I'm guessing you have to wear where a lot of different ads around here I do. I had to dance schools. I got four.

"And my God. She's cute you raising and it was a different time. They were black people all over the place when you were coming up What was it like for you because I know you you you come from his show Biz? Yeah family right so it wasn't completely but what was it like for you being a little kid and it will facts. Life isn't even your first. I know thing your first time at the Rodeo. So how how is that. Just sort of coming into being a television television person as a little kid when they're worth many people do it. You didn't notice from that standpoint because you're at least for me because I was so young you know so it. It wasn't a as much of an awareness of. There's really no way that looks like me. and honestly when I first got started Danielle Neil Spencer who played D. on what's happening so And Danielle and I am Kinda group together here in New York before we both moved out to. La with our families families her her Stepdad and my mom acting school together And so you know she. She was around. So I had a point of reference. But it wasn't as consciously aware in terms of there's another black girl and I wasn't raised to see color like that quite honestly you know everybody's everybody buddy so by the time it was just me you know it was mostly about being a good person. My mom raised me any to be very professional And not be a little jerk of a kid you know and and that type of working actor. We didn't use phrases like child star car until I was grown. And Kinda then you know in hindsight So there was always a grounded nece to my life Come in and in a way because I also was treated equal you know on the show And with my first series being baby I'm back And so as a black family unit But again I just. I wasn't taught to think in those terms so I didn't started when when fact started. I was nine eight nine to eighteen and baby. I'm back I was eight really grew up. Yes right in front of us. uh-huh it felt like that and so how did it start. How'd you get the job? Facts of life. I auditioned for it. I had done under the Like I said the baby. I'm back series four season on. CBS and I dish ind and when I went into the room dude I promise monsieur saw like just all. These girls didn't look like me and they were older. They you know what I was brought up in the culture to to believe was the pretty girls and I didn't see anybody that looks like me. I mean even black white or otherwise just no I was. I was the scrawny. Ah Tiny small little girl And you know Mitee the head an over bite and I may just. I wanted to go home and I told my mom. I'm do no let me let me go home and I had just done that one I went in to do. The Mrs Butterworth auditioned for the that commercial and Janet Dannatt was there and she was on those summer specials that her family used to do and again it was like. Oh my God no I gotta go home. I don't well that's absolutely absolutely and I was a fan of hers. And so I and my mom. She took me into the bathroom and she says. Don't ever let anyone or anything intimidate you even if they're not doing anything and it's in your mind. Don't let that take hold. You go and you just be the best you that you can be and I. I mean for deck. I still you know. We'll carry that advice with me. If there there are times when you know now we we call it insecurities when those insecurities creep in. I'm you know I've had therapies name. A little girl anymore but you know to be able to still go back to that that sound bite in my mind in the bathroom author and there were years you know in the In the eighties and especially in the nineties when some of the black movies were starting to come out and I would go on auditions and you know you see all the usual suspects. Hey teasha Hey Jada I'm GonNa go to bat them pumped myself up with you. Know good thoughts from my my mom and not get My getting my own way and I get in my own head so anyway back to facts of life so i. My mom took me to the bathroom. Gave me the same talk and I did the audition and none of the characters were it. Never said like you know To the age twelve African American none of that and so They liked what I did but I was a small nine to play twelve and and so they said how can we make you taller and they said. Can you roller skate Yeah what am I going to say no and lose the Gigi. Agee you kidding me so yeah. I can roller skate. So they went and bought some skates. They put me in the Rehearsal Hall Ami Skate around a bit and the rest is history that that he was rollerskating. In and out of the season stood out of made you sort of pop a AH along the cue. Thank you skating with it was it was a it was a whole thing. It was a whole thing. How'd you mean how did you to maintain the professionalism being nine and ten and having learned the lines and yeah you know and it wasn't just like you had to say the lines certain in way be funny like I mean? How did you do all that at such a young age I studied not study to cheap ourselves. Entertained the kids that none of our parents could afford babysitters when our parents weren't acting classes. So that's how I met in Yell and you know A whole the whole lot of us and So you just kind of learned we would do little plays and things like that but Doing the commercial. Where you I start learning lines doing The the baby. I'm back series. You know where you learn you learn your lines that sort of thing. Just I was around my mom. You know my I might. I would see her Rehearse her lines or go to see her performance she was out here on Broadway with Pearl Bailey and Hello Dolly so being being around it and my mother was not a stage mother so she wasn't like you know. Learn your lines. Read your script. And she's made sure that I was a good kid. She never never stopped parenting did you. I know you didn't use the phrase child star Shirley. You're getting recognized all the time. Did you feel I comic. Did you feel like I'm star. No didn't feel iconic come much later when other people would put could that Monica on me but even now I I felt like a working actor. I don't feel I kind of understand and I'm grateful that people people have that they look at me through that Lens but my mom had said a long time ago you know. Don't don't start believe in the hype type because there's hype you know and I understand how fans regard my body of work uh-huh they and the characters in the shows that those characters were in They resonate with them in in a way. That's beyond just being entertaining so I I have a lot of clarity when it comes to how fans see me and how the industry sees me So that my head stays on straight and so what is the. How does the fans see as you're saying yes? So it's it's it's the sentiment of You know I love you the sentiment of I'm not a stranger to them. I'm immediately like family. Because they've allowed me into their living living room since I was seven and so for several generations we've grown up together or you know they were grown and watched me grow up that sort of thing. So there's is a familiarity that's very surreal And it's based upon their total experience with shows like facts acts of life and living single there experience of when when men say to me my sisters and my family. We used to watch your show when in taxi drivers and other people that I've encountered that or not from here in the first thing he says I learned how to speak English watching your show. Oh you know and those sorts of things so I get the place that it comes from some actual life lessons were learned. You know and and you you went through because we were going through them. People who wore braces people who had challenges with their body image and you know developing impunity and all the things that we were in the fishbowl. Going through so I feel like they. They have that real familiarity. You know what I mean And so that's what I mean when I say I see when they say I love you the place that it comes from because otherwise you know me they they do absolutely and because not only been those characters. I've been in the media since I was a kid and and the media certainly has as we all know grown into the you know the eight hundred pound gorilla that it is today but at the end of the day they still have at any point. You can google me and you don't know what age Jammeh when when that thing opens up through So yeah there's been at least two iconic shows that you've been part of not just next also living single which is so beloved by so many people How did that come about that is it? Is it that like Oh everybody knows her from facts Alexa life. So let's let's not not to my knowledge so the way living single unfolded for me. I was Looking to Do a romantic comedy. The show mad about you had just kind of started and I thought I wanna do something like that Smart comedy at didn't feel Sitcom me and you know those sorts of things and so I had this. What was his great idea? And my manager said Great. You're you gonNA need a show runner and my mom at the time was working on hanging with Mr Cooper. She was the coach there and they had said Yvette. Lee is really you know getting her comeuppance. Now as as show runner in as a writer. you really should talk to her and so My mom introduced us and also so we had some other mutual friends so we got on the phone and I pitched the idea and she said I love it is just. I'm already in a deal With Fox and Warner Brothers. Developing a piece for Queen Queen Latifah in Kim Coles and I went..

"Of the often controversial Hugh, Hefner. The rumors are true ridiculous historians. We are joined once again, with a friend of the show and host of the history of standup podcast. Wayne Federman friend of the American people, Wayne Federman. Friend to our producer, Casey peck, from Wayne Federman. How're you doing? Wayne. I really would rather be speaking. Casey that guy's incredible. He made shaima in, but you won't be able to hear him because he's not piped into the phone, but we will rela- any words of wisdom that he provides on his behalf is he beaming right now because I'm talking about him is he says he says that he has his face is obscured by a giant computer monitor. So I can't tell you that person his voice in my ear says that he is okay. And he just leaned in and give a big smile fund story before we get started. And this is true story way when we were putting together this episode, Casey, actually asked us to hold and he traveled all the way back from Paris, France to be here today very special trip. It's true. It's all true. Yeah. Let me just say that it's very much on brand for casing. So when we previously spoke together, we looked at the history of what we call stand up today. Not just as the, the craft or the, the actual performance that we think of with somebody standing with the microphone in an audience that hopefully loves them, but not always we also talked about some of the bigger social questions that stand up brings to the forefront. And sometimes those can be uncomfortable questions that people don't typically explore now, the they laugh at too, but sometimes they leave thinking in our earlier conversations leading up to today's episode. Use started telling us about someone that was, I think maybe vaguely familiar to us but somewhere, we weren't super well acquainted with, with, which is the comedian and activist dick, Gregory wing, could you tell us a little bit about. Just for our audience who dick Gregory is, well, dick Gregory is famous in the history of up for one specific thing. And that is, he became the first major and there's a caveat, we can go into it comedian African American comedian to play white nightclubs. And how that happened, we will tell you in a moment. I'm sure but he was just a it was a funny kid. He was an athlete. He went to college. He was in the service, and then he moved from Saint Louis to Chicago to pursue his dream of becoming a stand up comedian and could only play the black clubs in and around Chicago and rears really struggling actually had a day job. He worked at the post office. He washed cars all trying to subsidize this career his and at this point, he's, he's married. He has yet has a lot of responsibility, so leading up to this big moment. We're gonna get into that involves another. Historical luminary and controversial figure dick Gregory was doing his best to get into the kind of Chicago stand up nightclub scene. And as you said, it wasn't a very welcoming scene for people of color, and I wanna play this clip from American masters, on PBS where Gregory, kind of describes this moment where he had to disarm a white audience at a club. I wanna say an Alabama or something like that, where someone calls him a racial slur, and he has to take that opportunity to defuse the situation rather than make a scene. And you know put his career in jeopardy because these were alternately his clients, who he was there to entertain. So I think it's really is a very teachable moment about the kind of climate that he was dealing with. So I go down there, and I'm not thinking of anything, I didn't know what to time that a negro is not permitted to work white nightclub. That's an all American in remember not knowing that I used to. Practice. What do you do? When some white person yell something negative out embarrass you. And so I used to practice with my wife, but it didn't work because us to nice and kind and in one night, I don't know how that this little job, and this little hick town miss your Walker, Indiana, so that you had to say no more. So I'm Michelle walking Danna and. And somebody get that nigger off the stage. Now, I was ready for and everybody just froze as why book. Call me call me a ring. Just hearts me trigger. I'm out of. There's no way you can feel sorry for me or embarrassed and laugh. When I got him back now I'm all together. Welcome to. Thank you. Jesus christ. I wanted to hit him myself, and then the guy walks say sorry. This. Sorry, almost pay. You man. I've been trying to figure out how to get to this, so Wayne, I wanted to know if you thought that maybe this was kind of, if he would have had to deal with similar situations like this leading up to this moment, and he almost describes it as, like an aha moment, where it's like this is how I can deal with this kind of heckling. Right. Well he, I feel like dick, Gregory, especially at that time, had a very high emotional, and comedic IQ on how to handle Krauts, and it's remarkable considering he's not that experienced other than basically playing these black clubs. But I just think he had an innate sense of one how to perform in front of white audiences. And to like, had a diffuse these very volatile situations that I'm sure would come up all the time. Right. Because as as you venture before he was he was working. Let's see his comedic career began in what the. Mid to late nineteen fifties. Is that correct? Yes. Yes. Yes. That's exactly correct. And at that time, there wasn't a lot of, you know, African American comedians on television or on the Sullivan show is just a few and once in a while see somebody, and there really wasn't a, a big circuit to play the big white nightclubs, which we called nightclubs at that time. And, but they wouldn't use African American comedian, once, once in a while, they would but as a rule, that's the, you know, they'd have an act, you know, Sammy Davis could play there or something like that. Or, you know, a team or a singer, Pearl Bailey or something like that, all the time, but not, not a standup. I saw really interesting clip with comedian Paul Mooney who was another very outspoken comic, a contemporary, maybe a little younger than Gregory, but still kind of very much like in the same scene as Richard Pryor, maybe like the next generation, but he talked about how in Hollywood nothing could ever be. The two white, but it was very easy to for something to be two black. And I think that's a really interesting distinction, where like you talk about Sammy Davis juniors performers of that Keller. They were a little more palatable to a white audience, but a comic like Gregory, who wasn't pulling any punches. That would be a little harder to take for these folks. Maybe weren't used to seeing things like that is that would you say that's accurate? Yes Mooney is one hundred percent on like people would go, okay. This is this is too much for. But again, dick, Gregory I think really learned how to thread, the needle almost like in a, a Jackie Robinson kind of way that he was like able to like take white audiences expectations of what a black guy would talk about. And he talked about racial stuff all the time that was the centerpiece of his act, but he did it in a very, non threatening very human way, as opposed to an angry way in that same NPR PBS clip that, we just heard later on talks about that. He. Was always respectful and he wasn't bitter and that he wasn't angry. And this was all I'm sure underneath. But again, I just feel like his emotional IQ was through the roof on how to handle these situations. So it wasn't like Paul Mooney who would not, you know, I can't imagine Paul Mooney handling that situation in that club the same way it would be way more confrontational. Yeah. Absolutely. I, I agree. One hundred percent with that statement about emotional IQ recently this, this is not a plug. I actually do. Listen to the history of stand up. Oh, yeah. Season two started. And in season. Two guys just had an episode come out recently about the playboy circuit. And this was something that I didn't recognize this episode for anybody listening is available now when our episode comes out, so give it a listen. This brings us to something that we'd we'd love for you explore with. Us here, which is the interactions between dick Gregory and Hugh, Hefner, the mastermind behind playboy magazine Lear the playboy empire. No, this is something you were alluding to in the beginning for sure. And this playboy clever, I didn't realize was a big source of entertainment and massive, you know, opportunity for working comics. If you've got a regular gig at the playboy club, which was in Chicago at the time of that was a massive break for you. Can you tell us a little bit about how dick Gregory literally kind of stumbled his way into this massive break? The story is fantastic. Well, this is you soom. This is why talking to you guys. This moment is very important in the big history of stand up and we covered briefly in our first season. And then went a little closer in. Thank you. For the kind words about the playbay episode. I appreciate if we ate it for anyone. It's the eight of us that are interested in the history of. Stand up. So this is what happens twenty nine thousand nine hundred sixty the first playboy club opens your. Like, what does that mean a playboy club well in fifty three real quickly Hafner publishes this magazine, December fifty three called playboy, Maryland rose on the cover? There's no date stamped on it, because it might have been the last one and it's basically has nudie pictures in it. But nothing too graphic it. I hope that's clear. What that means? Yes. Yeah. And then like articles, and he was into literature. And so anyway, this magazine, attache cog. Oh this kid who had this dream becomes his runaway success in the fifties? So he is like printing money by fifty seven is outselling time magazine outselling Esquire. It's like this incredible end has a big female readership, as well. So he three things happen around this time one he does this huge indoor jazz festival. Galled the playboy jazz festival to he buys a mansion in Chicago and the call at the playboy mansion, which is like this party house, and three he opens the playboy club and also four. There's another thing, I'm forgetting, he starts, this syndicated television show called Playboy's penthouse, which is this black and white, and the first two years, and you kinda get sort of presents like this party that you're invited to so people are sitting around, and they're drinking, and they're smoking, and there's a guy playing piano, and suddenly Sammy Davis comes in and sayings. And then Lenny Bruce does some comedy it's, it's just very incredible. Like insight into like the world. He wants to create after and that was kind of like a variety show for him. Right. Is that where we get that idea of him with the pipe and the smoking jacket and the whole? Yeah, yeah, yeah. But it's not it is a variety show, but not on a preceding stage in like a living room and then we let's go over to the dining room and then let's get some. Cocktails made over here. And let's listen to side Coleman play witchcraft. And it's it's just a great like promotional tool for the playboy brand, which was, and we talk about it in the podcast that he was going for sophistication like that was his like he thought got if I could make nudie picture, you know, this part of a sophisticated lifestyle with high fidelity and sports cars, and jazz, music, and great literature that. And that's what worked, you know what I mean? So it was like, suddenly not a smutty behind the counter kind of embarrassing thing if you wanted to see pictures of beautiful women, so that was that was another genius Hugh Hefner's. So he's make eats kill killing it killing during Eisenhower's administration. So he opens his playboy club, February twenty ninth nineteen sixty and the playboy club was this. You had to pay twenty dollars and got a key. Literally a metal key later..

"Five forty five here on this Thursday morning. And you know, we're actually going to talk about something other than the storm for a few moments. If you grew up in western Henrico county, no doubt, you spent a lot of time shopping at regency square went to see Santa Claus. At regency square the Easter bunny at regency square. I remember when the celebrities used to come through regency square. I met Pearl Bailey. The singer. My mother was nearly excited that she was coming at regency square at the record store. Gosh, I'm trying to think of the name of it. But Sam goody may be was what it was called. At regency. And then regency kinda hit. I don't know. How do you put it politely kind of a tough spot for a while? And everybody was not hanging out there. Of course, short pump town center opened up with there's this huge effort to revitalize regency square and they're thinking outside the box. It's not gonna be the normal mall equation where you have those standards stores Abercrombie and Fitch. What? The normal the normal stores that you get everywhere all around the country. That's cookie cutter. They're trying to shake it up a little bit. So the latest thing is that they're discussing with Nova the swim program opening a huge Olympic size swimming pool. Average now that kind of changes the nature of it. I guess it's not singularly a mall anymore. But as we mentioned last week sports tourism is becoming a huge industry for central Virginia. So the concept goes, you know, you build this huge swimming pool. Of course, the really great swimmers that Nova has produced over the years start practicing there at the mall. They got plenty of parking. They don't have to worry about the neighbors getting upset that all these cars roll in at five in the morning when the really serious swimmers are out there, and then you can host big tournaments. Big meets there at the swimming pool in the mall. Wow. I mean talk about. Thinking outside of the box and coming up with something that wouldn't be the natural thing to think about and then you know, we talked about a movie theater going in several months ago. Now that is in theory expanding and taking over the old Sears store there. I think originally it was going to be just one floor of the old Macy's. But now if they take over the entire Sears complex that could change things up. So big changes. I mean, you I don't know if tray of you have driven by their, but they tore down that overpass or the flying overpass that y'all felt like your car was gonna. If you're like me, and you speed sometimes you felt like your car was gonna flip off the top of it as you went by. That's no longer there. So the last time I was there. I mean, I was confused where I was it just felt so different. After decades of of that big changes coming for regency five forty eight.

Only been like three four three me paramount paramount network he plays the young Kevin Costner because. They. Do a, flashback in the third and third episode okay so the he plays the young Kevin Costner and so he was on. With kit and Natalie, this morning on access Hollywood live and first. Of all he is so beautiful and we know, him. We. Fell in love with him in sweet home. Alabama yes and so that. Was just on this weekend so I'm familiar with him and so the girls, are, saying would ever, do a remake of, sweet home Alabama, and you, seek excuse me a. Secret and he, goes you know I would love. That and, he says I talked to Reese about it you know we've kinda shot it back. And forth because Reese Witherspoon starred with him in that and that was probably. About ten years ago now I don't even think, so, and? So when it was, two thousand and two Sierra right. Like sixteen years ago but he said That he always knew Reese he always that Reese Witherspoon would head. Up a studio she was like that he said she just has we've heard. That before he was like she was that she, most, most? Closely resembles her character. In the election Oh yeah Yes very and even a little bit of l. without the super. Super. Together, okay well I'm in the. Movie topic Donny said we have our full official trailer for the. Bohemian, rhapsody Macrey it looks, amazing okay it looks so. Good and. Rami, Malik we were all set, you know Sasha baron Cohen was going. To play and he dropped out and we were like oh my gosh but he looks. Made up they do it's it looks so good, in, I wanna know the story more lean I don't know that I. Know. Like, I don't know about how. The band came together I really no moral Freddie Mercury such. An A solo career I believe and then they reunited for Live Aid yeah, I remember that's, when they get back because. He was. I, I'm curious sorry I know, nothing the music by the way Bette. Midler Hello Dolly she is back opened on Broadway tonight but listen to this Roger Friedman. I know we gotta get to the door Late Dirt. Alert he said she will close the show on August. Twenty, fifth and our return comes not a minute too soon because the it's reached a box office of seven hundred seventy seven two week with Bernadette Peters and Victor Garber and Roger Friedman thinks their production was superior to Bette midler and David Hyde Pierce because Bette midler was. Getting they were selling two million a week when Bette midler I was on, Hello. Dolly and then when Bernadette Peters and, Vic Victor Garber ticket prices return back to. Normal but this is not a sell. Out there are plenty of mezzanine and balcony seats available through August twenty four th, tickets but and producers must be counting on good walkup. Business the joke in on Broadway is the joke is the audience will walk up and up and up and up because it's that and he's recommending that you go see Donna Murphy on one of the Tuesday's when she feels in for Bette midler because she's Broadway superstar. Like Bernadette Peters and it would be worth hearing her sing Dolly Rogers like why aren't you guys keeping this going and bringing in other people like what David Merrick did in the sixties with Pearl Bailey and bring a black club right they could have McDonald's Gaddis night could do. It he, said well don't that's because this production was never about the art it was always. About the cash grab okay Roger isn't? That now I wonder if that's what they're, going to, say, about the sheriff shell well I'm we'll keep our eyes and ears peel but anyway if you wanna go see Bette midler you can go see her as, a? Tickets are there Well I know. You remember Bad but at least we didn't have to.
