Tony zane Friend of mine growing up he is well wanted to train. I said how would you feel about training to cup. Love us we. Yeah that would make difference. I said we have the money. And there was a third guy david mcgee. We all had five hundred bucks tad had a big day that day. And i said we have a gas. Go to put a ring if you can find us one or sell one and he's gonna put it right here because you know we have jobs. We still have to keep our job. Obviously and he said well. Yeah obviously so ted. Mr hicks ball terrain from ted. Put it in his store and that we started training from that time. And you know just from watching what we've seen on tv.

Hey i can get you guys on. Tv i could take you to knoxville and i can get your books now. You're going to get you're not pounded in your ass. Tell you before you go. That was the least of my worries. So he took us up to knoxville. And that particular time Blackjack mulligan had a territory up in knoxville very briefly with flair. Right very briefly sure. Ns wassall kelvin sell for the first time blackjack mobile the first time and bucks different wrestler so we did that that tv a couple of times maybe twice and then we continue the train at ted said as i got credible news for you i get you booked on atlanta tv. Oh my gosh. To put that perspective everybody atlanta. Tv is no longer just a regional channel. Atlanta tv means. Tbs the superstation georgia championship wrestling six zero five. It's everywhere right if the deal. It's the deal. The biggest wrestling show in the world. Where you're gonna get thumped or do the top. And if you show up on that tb you are seen cross. Country exposure is ridiculous so we got a couple of weeks of that and now we're trying to three days a week and Temple was picked up and about that third or fourth week of doing television. I got booked against bob and brad armstrong and that was my break In those days they didn't talk to you very much The guys that were stars. We were just snare as tackling dummies. We knew our job. We knew our role but we went out there and start having a match. And i just tried a couple of things i think. I just grabbed an arm or are reversed an arm. He was working on arm or something. And i flipped over. You know took a single egg just just some wrestling around which made me look like. Maybe i knew more than what i did. We had our match I think the guy that was about partner was named rivers Find that name. I think that's who it was one hundred percent sure but anyway i got to do some stuff in the matches over bob. You know brad came back to me backstage with you. Know we've never seen you before. Where are you from so right down. The road sir from rome should really so so we're neighbors baba's from marietta right and the shocks so that kind of was like a door nail little bitty say we know you handle yourself pretty good out there you know you enter stand on You know going on the road. And i said sir. That's all i've ever wanted to do is be a wrestler. Absolutely he says. Well you know i'm booking down episkopi florida. I just came up. Brad now to get some exposure on tv. We're going to be going back. He said i've got three weeks a slot where i got three weeks of work for you. If you want it you have a job. I see i do have jobs. What do you do what. I'm assist market manager at the grocery store. He said what's pretty good job isn't it. I said yes sir idiots. It's really good for rome. He said well you all. I've got three weeks. I can you know quit your job. I said i'll quit my job. A matter of fact i just quit my job right now. If you could really use any says well yeah you just you start monday. This was on a saturday. He said you go home. Pack pack a couple of bags. He said. I'll see you. Monday and birmingham. While i went in turned in one day. Notice the media cut job that had for four years now as an employer. You tell me how that was received. That sucks but As hot as the meat market guy would have been granny had to be hotter. She couldn't believe it. Yeah son you've got a good job. You got a job that you could keep for twenty years. You can retire at that job. I said i know. It's just a gut feeling. But i know if i get a full chance i can do this and i know on the other end. The upsides go to be far greater than what i could accomplish in that grocery store. She said don't do it. Please don't do it. don't do it. I said this is one time. I have to go against you. I know i can do this. So she said okay. And i'll let down. And i did my three weeks and i got to work with bob pretty much every night and that's where you really got your education in the wrestling business and that's where we'll take a pause for this week's episode.

"How did you hear about us and let them know that orange since you. You said a minute ago. And then he'd go cut hair. Did your grandfather have his own barbershop or did he have a chair. It's another shop. Or how did that work him. A pretty sure who was. Also one of his best friends shared the shop to cedar. We've tall at took a trip to rome. I took the whole family. And i took them by his barbershop and right across the street of told the story before was the projects and when i was a little on sunday My granddaddy would get me and you know about every other sunday or every third one he would take me down and he would cut my hair but a couple of you know a couple of times. I went down to the shop. And he said you want to make some extra money and he would let me sweep up all the hair and sit there for a couple of hours and they were pretty busy. They had the firemen policemen. All those guys structure workers. I was sweeping at harrow. Putting it in the bag well every other week they would be a group of kids that he would have come down to shop and i would be sweeping up the hair and there was a couple of times i would come in and they would get there before me. What he had done was he would have given them all a haircut free and he was leading them sweeper. The hair and i went in. I went to grab the broom which that was my job. I thought he came over and put his hand on my hand and he said side. Let them do it. They're learning something and he was teaching them little working a little pay but what he was really doing was giving them a free haircut. I didn't understand that at the time and a little bit later. Figured it out. And that's just kinda manuals ultimately of course father time doesn't their jobs How old were you when when your grandfather passed away How it was before a went on the road. I would have probably been twenty twenty one. Twenty two somewhere in there Their in that time. I had started to You still wanted to be arrested in the back of my mind. But my job's what's i got out of high school. The first job i had i was pushing pipe in the ditch for the water department. Two dollars and eighty two cents an hour. The started to learn how to run a backhoe same. Pay a little bit more upscale job data. Got for rome. What was a pretty good jobs. Call warehouse groceries. Yeah i remember. You told me about this. I think you have some in alabama. Yeah not too far from me. So i got a job Unloaded trucks and grinding hamburger. Me and putting chicken 'n trace which is like all simple stuff when you work at a meat department. And i started powerlifting in the afternoon which was given me. More confidence os getting stronger. It made by job eater. Easier unloading those trucks at three o'clock in the morning boxes of meat in a freezer and so that evolved into assistant mark manager. Believe it or not. But i still had this thing in the back of my head about wanting terresa i could not get it out of my head and We were go sometimes when when they were coming to rome on thursday peewee anderson myself. The referee and I was just fascinated by. But i continue the work. Which was that job was a good job in rome. It actually paid well that you know and there were that many enron to be honest and your grandfather passed away. Yup i got a call and my grandmother was all define showed. You need to get to the hospital. At apparently he had to pay the money we had had a storm and there were some shingles are blown off the roof so he decided he had the body of going up on top of the house and fixing that himself and as he was climbing up the ladder the ladder slip. He fell off and It's ironic that this won't happen but as he was fallen the clothesline that my grandmother hugged close on was close enough that when he fell off that ladder he actually clothesline himself on the on the jaw and across crosses leah and he knocked out a few teeth and split his lip really bad so it was bad enough. They had to go to the hospital and as they got him in there and they started talking to him a little bit. They figured out more was going on. They admitted him. They did surpass. That's where they found that he had pretty advanced cancer. And i don't know if it was from the concussion of fall of the a what exactly it was but it led to an four days. He was gone. It passed away never recovered. And you're how old at this point. Probably twenty one and What about what about grandma. Grandma's no longer with some sure granny. Still there really. Yes granny now no no. Hey still with us now. No no no. I'm dan so she was fire sale there and she was afraid to be in the house they got her sister was still alive. And she came down from north north carolina and live with four while Which helped just knowing that somebody was there and When it was a rough time of course she had no income coming in whatever she had tucked away. The job that i had. I was still living at home so i gave her everything that i made. With the exception of enough money to have A little bit of spending money and gas money and that's it. I gave her to run the house. It was tough times after my grandfather died. Somewhere in here you decide to Try a new path. And i think a lot of that had to do with meeting. Ted allan right. Yeah you know.

"I'm assuming they're telling the truth. I don't know why they wouldn't be but they say it's one of the most painful things there are all because it's in your bones and other than go to a doctor which people of his era didn't go to a doctor because they might tell you. You're sick exactly. Yeah and he had still had a family to complete you know Taken care of in his mind and not going to work wasn't an option and all those different things so the way he numbed the pain worse he had bottles of liquor hit around the house and he would drink a bunch of liquor tola would knock him out so we could go to sleep and get up at four thirty in the morning to go cut hair so that was the experience that you know. He was drinking. But i got it big time and he looked at me one day after my grandmother chewed him out took full portion of a bottle and threw it away and he looked at me and he said son i hurt and those words cut me in half. Because he wasn't pleading he was just stating a so. Yeah we're running up and down the road here in pensacola talking to arn. We're learning all about being a mechanic.

And and listen a lot of fans who listen to this who just remember you know the old one in hard days the stories and tv and promos and all that and so. We have a different expectation. And then you know you meet. You have a a beer. And he's okay boys. I'm headed to bed. It's it's not exactly what you were expecting now. And i'm not gonna y. Back in the day we get back to the to the marriott bar and brother. I may whiff down ten or twelve. You know in a couple of hours It just you know you pick a time in your life where it's not bad aborted and part of that prayer that i had besides you know for my boys and stuff being a better role model being a better human being gotta remember for nineteen years. I was rolling out around monday night at eleven. Thirty with a three hundred mile job and i was pooped. I'm not young man anymore and when you're out driving two three four four thirty in the morning you don't wanna be drinking. That's just ridiculous and that helped me make that decision to not just quit. And you know i slowed way down on those nights And you know went went for breaking you know substantial amount of beer to just a few beers to just know beers and it was just. It was easy. But you're right. You know people hear the stories horse mccoy's and these days. I'm pretty boring cat. When did did there ever come a time where you felt like or maybe your family felt like i. It's gone too far or is this something you were just able to recognize on your own I never had any grief from them. They never those situations. But i'm sure there were times when you drake and you get indignant. You don't realize you're getting indignant unless somebody points it out right and then and then it's funny. You blame them know. Hey i'm just having a few drinks you now You never look inwardly and realized because the one thing i have figured out is and i'm not talking about social drinkers or casual drinkers or people. That can handle their booze. But the worst thing you can be around a bunch of drunks sober. Yeah and i've figured that out and it's it is not a good time. I mean just put it to you that way so i can only imagine the people over the years at were around me when i was roaring And they weren't so for all those folks apologize. It's pretty special that you were able to To just sorta go cold turkey. Walk away like that. I think a lot of people Feel the need to attend some sort of recovery process or facility I mean you know. I guess the word is rehab. Did you feel like you had to do some sort of a rehab. Even if it wasn't physically mentally and sort of train your brain to do differently well it kind of it kind of took care of itself. Though there were those some days after that first day that i would go get that deep sweat or we would be on vacation. I you know we're at the beach or out of the pool. Buddy actually you know. And i know there is nothing better than sitting out on you. Know pensacola beach after having had a hell of a workout old up with a cooler full of coal beer but it just never tasted the same and the taste is what you have to conquer anybody that drinks a beer for the first few times and say oh that tastes awesome full shit. Of course there. They taste terrible. It's a little hard to have makes drinks down on the beach. Unless i mean you can always mich up makes a pitcher and stick medical. And they'll last maybe a a little wild but that's a little difficult to have but Not much on the sweet drinks. Those kinda you kinda get sick before you get hammered. Drake of choice would have been seabreezes. Stolley seib range. Which i dragged some of those along the way but yeah i mean it's just a part of life you go through and some people never escape it when you know when you have the history that i have with my mom passing genome to me and stuff and and i actually really enjoyed drinking it just it like everything else you outgrow it and the the most important thing or your children and you wanna do what you can do to help them. Grow up the right way if there is a thing as the alcoholic gene as you mentioned. Do you think your grandmother or grandfather had at one point in their life and they just figured out how to manage it. Well i know this by grandmother. Never tried to drop entire time that i knew her however i did see that she caught my grandfather towards the end of his life turns out he developed cancer that nobody knew and the last say year and a half two years of his life with him like with a like there was a pilot liquor bottle. She called a couple of times in the clothes hamper. There was there were found liquor in the dryer and we thought you know our remember her name getting into heated discussions about it. She just thought he was drunk and that was her explanation as we found out later he developed bone cancer and for those that have had it..

"Sports was. One thing that rome had there was like seven high schools around rome. Leave that or not and Football was big georgia. Wrestling was big as far as amateur wrestling. Bigger than you with fake So it was. My first time could be conditioned at that level wrestling practice. I think any amateur officer will tell. You is the hardest thing they've ever done. And i will back that up. One hundred percent wrestling practice is a credible. But you get in incredible shape as well. And that's the first time i lost. All the baby. Fat started lifting weights. And i saw you know. I actually got skinny. For the first time i wrestle. One forty five as a freshman Sophomore junior years one sixty seven. I ended up at and just did more for your confidence. It did more for keeping out of trouble because when you can eat and you can't kurt certainly if you're drinking at that age you know junior in high school people. Start off guys. But you can't drink you. Can't you know you can't eat. You gotta be very careful that you you make. Wait are all that hard. Practice is just for nothing so so achieve. I wasn't a state champion or anything like that. I wanted a couple of regional tournaments. Which would have put me at in the state tournament. But i got hurt. My junior year practicing actually for the state tournament actually went down so It did a lot for my confidence. It did a lot for me as a human ban and more so starting at about eight years old. Just kind of backtrack a little bit. The thing that was always in the back of my mind no matter what else. I did a wanted to be a professional wrestler. I don't know what age you became a avid fan. But obviously you are. As i am did a star for you that early Seven told her story before bob mall. Who was my best friend and is still my good friend and just recently saw enrollment. I would call him now. This is eight years old and say you got to come down here. You got to come see this hurry. Hurry hurry while waiting for him. Up on the couch by the door that came into our house was me in my underwear with a face mask. Toboggan and a stroke shoestring down underwear. So is he came in. I jumped off the couch. Raft a shoestring around his throat was trying to choke him out with a mask. Gone eight years old. That's nuts ain't it so let's talk about that. I guess I know where we're bouncing all over the place. But i like talking about young arn who were your sort of Big stars that you were saying that you were trying to emulate as a little kid across all the sports but we'll start with wrestling. Well yeah i mean. It was georgia championship wrestling. It was six. Oh five that's a really the big show that got me started a little bit later but early on though the first wrestling show that i remember seeing was Outta chattanooga ed caporal was the announcer. And i think it would have had to have been nicholas's product. That's the one. That i caught my eye. Then as i got a little bit older as a teenager. I started to see guys. Like dick slater bob morton junior wrestling to Some of those guys and rocky johnson. He was the first guy that i saw. That had. A physique mighty. I wanna look like that. But my heroes were. Dick slater bob morton just because i began under as a teenager. You look through different eyes and started to see those guys. Were the ones causing all the excitement. That necessarily tommy rich and two in those guys. Slater and orton. Were the guys. Make things happen and it was. Wow if it took on a new meaning for me how were you when you realize it was the heels hum probably sixteen seventeen somewhere in there. You know a lot of people listening to this can relate to this. They had a grandfather or grandmother. Who were really interesting. We're either of your grandparents into it I think my grandfather would watch a little bit of it but to be honest with you. He worked so hard What what. I remember most about him. It is clear as a bell. He had one of these nine banned. Big radios when they first came out about he would cut hair. All a barber cut hair probably from six to six. Come home a little dinner. Go workers garden for an hour and they would come in and listen to the brights and more sold them the watching wrestling. I was only one washing wrestling. My granny wouldn't have dreamed of watching it wisconsin. I had the tv out of myself. And he would listen to the braves on the radio and fall asleep in his chair and I was kind of sit there and just by myself. Just sit there and fantasize about being a wrestler. I think even to this day you and your whole family. Our big braves fans right. Yes sir yes sir. We sure are and they're all throw slow start Things you're going to pick up. I know they just have too much talent on that team for it. Not to talk to me a little bit about your favorite braves players as a kid.

The Story of Miss Baker - Space Monkey

"Okay so what was the plan. Were they going to do with these. Twenty-six tiny cute monkeys already worried about them. Yeah so nasa wasn't a thing until nineteen fifty eight so for years. The army and the navy have been running these tests to see if it's safe to send humans to space and that's where these twenty-six tiny monkeys come in. So were they going to send all twenty six of these monkeys into space or was there like some kind of training tiny centrifuges how they just please imagine for a moment a monkey training montage. They had to go through like stimulated flights and lab testing. And you know stress testing like they were looking for the smartest calmest monkey to send to space. Yeah i'm totally imagining the monkey version of the right stuff. And i'm sure this isn't isn't true but i'm picturing like tiny silver jumpsuits and little monkeys walking down the tarmac in slow motion for sure. That is what i'm picturing. So it all sounds really cute. Little monkey nuts blazing a trail to the stars. But actually the us government at this point has been trying for a decade to bring a monkey back alive so starting in nineteen forty eight we had albert. The i went down to the tail. Explosion albert the second valve failure alpert. The third parachute didn't open i. I mean it's interesting and this is like it's both totally awful but gives you some sense of why they're doing these experiments right because they're going to send people into space plans to send people into space years out from sending people to space and so far there just you know. Just a bunch of dead monkeys. This is i mean so. This is pretty grim up until we get to miss baker. How did they end up choosing miss baker. So it's spring of nineteen fifty-nine. There's all launch scheduled. And so the navy basically narrows it down to one candidate and its tiny female squirrel. Monkey barely on adults. And she's teeny tiny. You hold her in your hands She has this adorable little like white mask on her face. You know tiny little like bear shaped ears a long tail super long fingers. Ucr your heart just goes out to her and the researchers really liked this particular monkey. The even named her tlc for tender loving care. They basically figure if she she was the smartest the most docile and that she was the best candidate for this mission little known fact nineties hip hop group. Tlc named after her frie- you music box out there. Score that one away. That's that that's not true so the mission was coming up and all higher ups like we. We can't call her. Tlc that's not. That's not going to sound good over the radio. And so they renamed her baker specifically they renamed her miss baker and her co pilot for the mission was another monkey and they call her. Ms able and so finally. It's may twenty eight one thousand nine hundred. Ninety nine launched a cape canaveral. They load miss baker up into this really scary looking contraption it's like a water bottle or metal thermos and she's wrapped up in there like a mummy in this little jacket and she able or walked out onto the tarmac where they launched all the ships and they're loaded into the top of a rocket fifty ton jupiter rocket fifty tonnes for two tiny monkeys. Okay so they're on top of this building sized fifty ten rocket they're tiny they're cute and this giant rocket this big launch. It's all for them. There's nothing else going on today so owning to thirty five. Am one lengthening. We have looked up thirty monkeys strapped in escaping from the gravity of earth and into space at one point. They're moving at ten thousand miles per hour. Just imagine flint would be terrifying for anybody much less a monkey in total they spend about fifteen minutes in space and then the nosecone detaches from the rocket and it begins the descent. Forty-five minutes after the launch. The nosecone splashes down about two hundred fifty miles off the coast of puerto rico. Just after five. Am that morning. The uss kua pulls up at picks up the nose cone and everyone is very nervous. They were desperate for these monkeys to have survived. So one of the guys aboard ship popped open the nose cone and both the monkeys were alive. Everyone was just everyone was so happy. They radio back to cape canaveral and they said able baker are perfect. No no problems after unwrapping her from her coat and her thermos one of the guys on the ship gave miss baker at a little cookie. And so it was. It was a huge success because these were the first monkeys to return alive from space. Oh wow yeah and these were like the first american animals to kind of come back in one piece and you know like at this point. This is the middle of the space race. There's a lot riding on this as a very very geopolitically important little tiny monkey yeah she was a big deal and you would be for the rest of your life so immediately miss baker in her co-pilot miss able are shipped off to washington. Dc for a press conference because our what do you mean a press conference the monkeys you gotta understand there now vip very important primates but four days after the landing something really sad happens miss able dies in a freak accident and so now. Miss baker is the only the only monkey to return alive from space and america's only animal astronaut to have survived. And so that just kind of makes her even more special there. Were you know newsreels about her children's books printed about her or she gets fanmail especially from children. She was on good morning. America at one point. She got double billing with the jackson five. That is famous. Yeah i also. I also love post her career in science her life kind of like moves into the gossip pages. A little more public figures like that like they do something you know like kind of given a title. She's called america's first lady in space. That's how she was seen so miss baker after her flight. She goes back to pensacola. You know there's a yearly parade in her honor but mostly she settles down. You know her handlers. Even get her a companion. Another squirrel monkey named big george and after a while the hands even hold a wedding for them so like many young couples miss baker in big george moved to a bigger place. The newly built us space and rocket center huntsville alabama and by. Now it's nine thousand nine hundred seventy one and it's been more than a decade since miss baker took her spaceflight so big george eventually passes away and miss baker immediately married off again to another monkey. And it's very celebrity. It's very tabloid. The space center even sends out engraved invitations and has a real judge into the fishy eight And they dress up miss baker in like a train veil. She actually rips off a couple minutes into the ceremony. Good for you good for you. Miss baker and so she you you just get this idea of like how precious she was to people in nineteen eighty-four. She dies of acute kidney failure. She's twenty seven years old and at this point. She is the longest known living squirrel monkey in history. She at this point. She's broken every single record for like the average lifespan of a squirrel monkey. So miss baker's led this long life. She had like an official wedding when she died where she given. The same treatment was a funeral. Or what happened. Oh yeah she was sent off in style she was buried right outside of the. Us rocketed space center and three hundred people showed up just to witness her being laid to rest. I saw some pictures to like flower. Reason like these signs saying you know like miss baker america's first lady of space born nineteen fifty seven died nine hundred eighty four. And you know she was that day she was laid to rest next big george who had been buried there for a couple of years now. That's nice that's nice

"Jack curtis here on dose of leadership. Welcome to the show my friend. Thank you very much for having me. It's pleasure this is going to be an interesting conversation. I mean it's obviously. I love having fellow prior military folks on here but now that i got a fellow gold winger on here so that's always fun but never had anybody that's been in command of a squadron on one of the things that i always regret. I gotta the ring court right at ten years. I got the airlines. But what are the an. I ten years reserves and the guard. But i always regretted not taking. I always want to know what it'd be like. Take command so this is going to be a fun conversation. I am interested from your aspect of it. I was joking when i got on the call with. You don't look old enough to take command. But i forget how my squadron commander was like in the late thirties. Fifty two now. And you're in your early forties right so you just don't look old enough to take command but i it's just me not dealing well with the age of getting older but but thanks for coming on the show man privilege beer. I've listened to your show for for a long time. Several years. And i gotta i gotta admit i'm pretty humbled to have looked at the lineup of people you've got on your show and the quality conversations you've had into now get to be a part of. Its thank you well new and i have a history to because i don't how many years ago wasn't you reached out to me. I mean in karachi. That's probably two thousand and fifteen. Or so i had just selected been selected for command was kinda starting to do a little bit of thinking about Some this bigger picture leadership stuff and i came across your podcast. And i said hey. I think i'd like to talk to this guy. And your gracious enough with your time and I remain grateful for that. Yeah and you reached out in an i. Don't remember what advice gave you. Hopefully it was. It was okay enough. Didn't get fired very go. And and then you reach that again graciously a blast from the past and you kinda update me where you're at and i appreciate you. I thought well this might be good to have you on the show because it gives an insight to leadership that i think a lot of people usually don't get the inside baseball on right and i'm curious to because it's something that i've never experienced. It's something that i always wish. I wonder how i would do. But you had a unique experience. Let just for the sake of our listeners. Your naval aviator right. You eventually started flu wing. How long have a perspective here. What year was that yes. We'll jump in the way back machine. A graduated from the university of florida in may of two thousand I immediately went up. To pensacola started flight. School you're familiar with this track You made my way through Through flight school and then ended up finishing in may of two thousand. Two's almost exactly two years of flight school which is relatively quick Yeah i had a lot of A lot of wait times like six Wait six months. then i'd start a phase. Wait six started phase so it took me a while. Yeah i was really grateful to be able to go through that quickly to i think And your instructor. If i recall correctly i mean one of the things. That's so important. When you're learning a new skill or a trade or a job or task is just repetition over and over and as you work towards those ten thousand hours right and You know being able to go through flight school. That quickly meant that. I was flying almost every day. I was in a simulator almost every day. Sometimes twice a day and You know being a middle of the bell curve kind of blue collar pilot. Like i'm in a career of repetition important so yeah long. Answer your question but i got winged in two thousand and two. Okay good yeah so that you're about eleven years ahead head me or eight years. I got winged and yeah ten years ahead of me winged in. I wanna keep doing this math. I'm like my head's about to explode anyway. I'm old you're not so that's the whole thing that it came up with so you get and you fly the ea six right. And so you're you're flying to that and eventually transition to the e. Eighteen growler super hornet and eventually took command right. And so. when did you so this is interesting. So when did is this your first command and when was this. When was your first command. Yeah so you know the navy. Does things a bit differently than Some of the other services particularly army and the marines where he will have a platoon commander for our company commander the navy Typically there are a few exceptions with some of the small ships but The navy typically reserves its first level of command at the level In the marine corps. In the army as lieutenant colonel battalion command in the navy at squadron command of a squadron commanded on the aircraft side or it could be on the ships a destroyer Nope yes this is. My perception commands I took command having been in the navy for. I think the eighteen year mark

How Airline Pilot Jim Allen Got His Aviation Start In The Navy

"Tell us how you got your start in aviation a pay I grew up as an air. Force brat flu beef forty seven feet fifty twos in a one So i was always excited about aviation from that. My dad passed away when i was a teenager so I think that kind of cemented the hero worship for for my dad. You know in those days. And i just you know as always we we moved from you know we were on the air force base for a while we lived in iowa and then kansas after my dad passed away to live where my mom's parents were in a big open skies. And you're always looking up to see what was going on up there because you know. I was just kind of bored in small town. Kansas and My uncle taught me how to fly. When i was nineteen years old Down in rockport texas. What kind of airplane of piper warrior and I just you know even though it was a little stressful because he was kind of a screamer why it was it was i love going flying solo but when he was in the airplane i was just a little bit stressed out but i still have his His voice in the site you know in in my ear every time i'm not lined up for the centerline of it in even in a seven thirty seven. Now it's get get lined up with. What's wrong with you that just use a spring but it was i'm just curious You have a relative teaching to fly when you're not in the airplane. What was your relationship with him like. Yeah so i was staying in his In his house and that was it was just. It was a little stressful. But i in there were. There were times where he was like these. You really want to do this one. She just leave and things like that but when it was all said and done he was really proud. And i was proud and But i was his first and last student because nobody else wanted to deal with them. I guess but he. He came to my winging ceremony when i became a pilot And he was just proud a you know it is just the way life is. Sometimes you know it's not always good. It's not always bad. There's just getting bad mixed in but But i learned a lot. You know and i and i got the i got the license in like fifty five hours. I was there for two months from from zero to two private pilot just in the summer of nineteen eighty five. So that's the way to do a t to go. Full bore fly every day. If you can and get it out of the way right. Yeah and i saw that with the students that i flew with later so a way You go to college. I went to college at the university. Kansas and i was living in kansas can think. And why. why am i here in the first place. That's my mom's hometown. But i found out that the university of kansas was ranked in the top ten for aerospace engineering. And i was like well. That's pretty cool. You know so. That's that's what i wanted to learn. It was a tough program. But i got through it Actually with honors But i decided to join nato. otc The air force at the time was They weren't offering pilot slots Two people who were getting scholarships Be an engineer for the air force. And then you would compete for a scholarship later in a it just seemed a little too much ambiguity. Matt's of navy was saying we'll we'll give scholarship. You can figure out if you're gonna be a pilot toward the end of the program in You know it's needs of the navy. And all that kind of stuff so so turned out. When i got selected if i they told me i was going to be a pilot and then like they. You know four weeks later. I haven't graduated yet. They said well. We're sorry that we were badly in the back sears. Nfo's nfl stance from naval flight. Officer so i you know. Tail between my legs went down to pensacola tried to figure out a way to become a pilot and they said no dice Were just short on. Nfo's and that's in. You have a minute refractory error in your left dive. It's keeping you from minnesota. But i was twenty twenty in gotten in like six months before six months after they probably would let me go to the pilot program but at the time they just they were starving for back. Seniors in that may have been a blessing in disguise. Because like a year after. I got down there. They cut the bottom third out of pilot training navy wide because of the cold war drawdown and there were guys get sent home. We're getting cintas supply or know. They were surface warfare. That kinda thing and so it was. It was kind of an ugly time in the navy late eighties early nineties.

"You can feel comfort in storing your private belongings inside lockers and other storage devices however sometimes the private belongings found inside. These storage devices are rather strange and disturbing number ten. The only time it's acceptable to keep around a headless doll is the five minutes between the dog ripping the head off and discovering it when someone stores headless doll among knives. It's most likely a problem. Robert dewey hoskins who was rearrested after escaping from a mental hospital in february of two thousand twelve was convicted of threatening to murder madonna and that headless baby doll was found in his storage unit in long beach l. a. weekly reports on the ten creepiest items found in the madonna stalker storage unit. Besides the headless baby dolon. Dozens of knives hoskins kept a very scary clown mask. A sumo wrestler back doubt a barbie backpack and so much more number nine. A married couple with two kids made a horrific discovery when the mother mrs copeland found a safe in her ten year old son's room when questioned about where he got it and its contents. He simply pleaded the fifth. Both parents were unable to get any info their son eventually. Mr copeland was the safe open and was shocked at what he found inside. The head of their dog that had recently passed and was buried in their yard was stuffed into the safe. Blood poured out of the box as mr copeland screamed in horror. Their son said he loved that dog so much that he wanted to have a part of her forever so he dug up the body cut off its head with a tiny kitchen knife and stuffed it in the safe that was found by the mother of later on that same day number eight some people like to take their work home with them but dr michael berkeley a former medical examiner took his work to a storage unit in pensacola. And when i say work. I'm talking about body parts for more than one hundred people all this craziness was discovered in august. Two thousand twelve win some poor soul both the contents of dr brooklyn's unit at a storage option. It seems that dr brooklyn's hobby included the storing of ten brains as well as other body parts lungs hearts and tissue samples. Dr burke was thrifty as well as creepy keeping a hard stored in styrofoam cup. Police noted that formaldehyde was leaking from the cracks lid. The body parts which were harvested during private autopsies performed inside funeral homes in florida were also found inside tupperware containers. Trash bags specimen cubs. Interestingly dr berkeley was fired from his job as a medical examiner in two thousand three for failing to complete autopsy reports in a timely manner and for a big backlog of cases number seven unit be aid. And you store self storage in clearwater. Florida held something. That couldn't be auctioned off on. The family fell behind on payments in january of two thousand twelve when the storage facility manager told the family that the contents were going to be sold. The truth came out among the banana boxes and old. Tv's rested the greenwich skeletal remains authorities. Identify the grandma as an bunch born on january. First one thousand nine hundred. Since the woman's death in nineteen ninety five her remains had been stored inside a painted blue coffin in a storage unit. That wasn't air conditioned for seventeen years. Her remains rested inside a warm storage unit. The body had been properly prepared for burial by funeral home. L. bama which explains the lack of odor number six. A lot of people refuse to go to public pools and he'd be. This will be one more reason. An elderly man named jacob pastor who swam in a public pool in colorado used the same locker in the changing room. Every time he visited a lot of the lockers went unused as most people didn't even need to use them and it wasn't a very crowded pool to begin with one unfortunate day however perhaps he had tired himself out a little too much and opened the wrong locker. The one right next to his usual one. The skeletal remains of human fell out from the locker. Almost as if tackling him to the ground by the looks of the body that once was had been there for years as it was fully decomposed. It looked as though somebody had been forcedly jammed in there or perhaps they simply got stuck in their themselves. That mystery will remain unsolved

"We are here to tell you what is trending Friday afternoon. Some fun stories. Some not all art or stark. Yeah things going on Pensacola shooting is trending because there was another shooting on a naval base. And there's just one in Hawaii Yell Harbor or with a guy who's submarine had docked there and right and killed two civilian workers at the memorial. This one was someone at the beginning. They said there was a shooting unable facility and one of the first things they said is there they are still looking to see if it was a terrorist attack and they were confused and then it came out that the suspect who is also dead is an aviation student from Saudi Arabia So I think it was like in a program where we take other people's bulls like military officials or people who working with who are going to be working with American forces to get sort of literate and how things operate go may have been in some. I'm kind of program like that But yeah but he was and he was in Florida. Yeah this is in Pensacola. Yeah so yeah. There's a not a great history of Saudi aviation students now in Florida now on the yeah it comes to terrorism King Salman of Saudi Arabia expressed his sincerest condolences to President Trump. I mean knowing this president right water under the bridge. Right So yeah I actually. When I first saw this breaking thought people were referring to the one that happened the other day? Now turn it out. No Yeah we live. In America. These happened constantly It's the nineteenth. I think the nineteenth shooting at a military facility in the US engineers ten years but most of the time people aren't allowed to have firearms on those bases like a select few rape and we don't know what the motivation is. No I think they're still That's what the FBI has taken over the investigation. This isn't even like a local law enforcement thing it's it's a full on federal matter. Now got it Nikki. Haley is trending would did she. She gave an interview. Yeah she was talking to Glenn Beck Back Oh remember that fucking putrid back. Yeah So you know. She was in a very safe space and just say whatever she really felt. And that's I think what happened. A lot of people have been talking about how she's like the next Gen Republican kind of candidate. There are rumors that she could be trump's running mate if he ditched pens and twenty twenty. I need to try and like you know. Shore up some more votes Obviously from women because they're just like well that's how that'll work put women on ticket and it will erase all all the other terrible things I've said and done in my life. Yes but yeah in this interview. My God she's talking about The shooting at Mother Manual Church in Charleston Allston and was saying that like that the shooter had hijacked the meaning of the confederate flag with his manifesto and to how the media just wanted to make shooting all about race and racism. And it's it was just a wildest thing here. It's like well that he was. It was a racially motivated. You can attack terror attack And the weird history lesson she gave of sort of like I mean it's not what it stands for. You know it's it's not about hate or federal flag yes was basically the thrust of what you're saying that prior to that it was because I think it was in relation to shoes governor at the time who basically took made the confederate flag. Like you know it was no longer the flag the state flag of South Carolina. Oh so she was trying to like. Nah I didn't mean that that mean while many people were like yes. That's exactly what brands for what it's used for by the people who fly. Not only that I mean even like the person who designed find the confederate flag was like Nah man like white black literally something about how the White Race will stay supreme overall. Because that's what the civil war or was about. No it was about Just economic reality realities and and that's that's it but yeah. It was very chilling to see someone so casually casually just change the meaning of history like that. And this is the thing that I've said in a past episode. She really is the kind of person if they really were trying to take things in an authoritarian direction could do it so subtle like people just very disarmed by her demeanor and things like that right. But then she's out here dog whistling dixie raw and yeah and yeah I mean many people but that's the thing that people have just kind of casually Referenced during the Trump Administration that you know when somebody who's actually competent And not like openly corrupt kids along and you know decides that they WanNa go on a populist direction decides they want to take the the conditions that trump is exploiting and and make it an authoritarian country. We're going to be in a lot more trouble than we already are Ya. And she seems like a good candidate for that sort of thank well. Let's talk about bath and body works. Candle Day Take us in a new direction. Yeah Trending I. I don't know I was like I mean. I guess what has happened why this apparently there is. They have an annual candle day. But why do they get candle day. I mean I don't I think because is like look I like a Nice Senate candle. Okay actually not. I love scented candles. They help make my stinky as house. Yeah not carry one around with you. I do and I use it as yoder interior not very effective. The WAX is all over the place but apparently they're normally. These candles are three candles Jack. They they can last for forty five hours or some shit. Oh Yeah they're normally like twenty five or twenty six bucks or something and then I guess during this one day only December seven th the date that will live in infamy are nine nine dollars and fifty cents is this day that will live in infamous number seven is yes. Yeah wow so. It's not only as the Pearl Harbor Anniversary Right. Also Bath and body bodyworks candle handled them. There's something about for me. Bath and body works has a special place in my juvenile heart because it was like the first perfume perfume girls wore like in middle school. Math and bodywork. Yeah because you could just go to lake or whatever. Country Apple Splash all the time and Woah Camila sugar you know what I mean. They have all those sense and to me I always think of my adolescent thing like that was the earliest sent memory of a young woman. Yeah but yeah I know what you're talking about. That actually reminds me of being very sick when I was younger because I have a sense memory of like our entire family. Got The flu or got the stomach stomach. Some sort of stomach virus and like we were always using That like country apple sent to really ever up everyone's like so sick And now like so different times country apple brought back to that summer when everybody was puking. Ma'am Let's talk about about Knicks about them. Knicks the knickerbockers From of New York have a are trending again for this time firing their head coach. How long was David fizzed? Ill the head coach his He was there for a season and change. Okay Yeah I mean would it look I mean. I guess we'll help the now we're going to do the NBA show. What a terrible job? Have the head coach of the Knicks. It's really it's really really something Because you are you are coaching for a I mean. I don't know much about the jam so some people who pay any more attention than NBA than me say that the new GM like kind of has a plan but they they play for or they coach for and work for the worst owner in sports in maybe not in sports but definitely a basketball About to spin off their businesses. The game's going straight straight shot Madison's like MSG though they're going to be like yeah. There's something going on that. Or maybe he's actually possibly looking into selling but I feel he like he would hold onto the Yankees just out of spite because people like he's very spiteful do oh yeah I mean just from the anecdotal stuff about him or being like you wanna a play a Madison Square Garden. Yeah then my band will open. Yeah and those are the conditions of the eagles. The Eagles the confidence a terrible band. I mean shoutout to Jimmy D. The it's funny because you know we're we're dead bind Church charm and if you're not blowing niece in an old church what are you doing the were fans of Jesus Romero obviously diesels and they. They're air constantly living the never ending nightmare being knicks fans. No and the things he tweeted as like right after it has been so great. Is that Nick's head coaching position Now now the mandatory minimum sentence if you get caught with a firearm and then he did tweet another thing from years ago from two thousand fourteen because it became relevant again. He said your girl rubbing you like. It's okay baby after every knicks game but inside she's like can't spend my life doing this deserve a good team for how big their city is. A Yeah I mean it's.

"Pensacola Florida and welcome back to coast to coast are special tribute show to the great late rose merry Ellen godly it over but a year ago I had an opportunity to talk with her about the history of Christmas and angels and nobody talks about them better than she does so here we are just the season right there were Christmas right around the corner I can't believe it's next week let's talk about miracles angels and some customs and traditions first of all what have you discovered about some of the origins of things tied in the Christmas like the tree and Santa Claus white people send out cards what's going on here what are the way we observe Christmas really has an interesting history we've blended a lot of things together over centuries to develop the customs that we have today and some of them come from pre Christian times that were absorbed into Christianity let's take the date of Christmas for example in the Bible really doesn't say exactly when Jesus was born to how we come up with December twenty fifth is the date and it has a lot to do with the way Christianity absorbed pagan customs and festivities and an old religions there were a lot of festivals and celebrations around the end of December to celebrate the turning point and solstice where the days start becoming longer this sign is welcomed more and more in onto the earth and there were a lot of festivities along those lines and so the the early church fathers the days of Christianity astutely I believe that if they had their own celebrations and festivities at about the same time it would be easy to absorb those interesting customs activities into the church it was really more customary to celebrate things for a long time at new years instead of a Christmas gift giving festivities things like that and over time we've shifted our emphasis to December twenty fifth how long has that date been used as Christmas well was actually sat quite sometime ago centuries ago and as as a way of having an official calendar mark up for us to orient our religious observances on may even sell well into the Middle Ages and even tutor times Christmas remain one of the lesser celebrations Easter far out weighed it in importance and there were some other Christian the holidays as well that I got a lot more emphasis so it's only been really.
