"Two years without toys, this is insanity, think of the children, bring the toys back. I guess you can have toys without toy fair, but toy for so much fun for the grown-ups and play with toys for work. No, I'm going to miss that. You can also see that what the heck is it? Content is a chance to win an autographed copy of mad magazine by identifying these little green it looks like maybe washers for a hose. It's the anti leak device for a hose. How about that? So you could send that in. Yeah, so here's the deal. There's up to 8. I'm sorry, 6 mad magazines for the right answer, but there's up to 12 for the wrong answer. So never answer right. You double your odds. If I'm not mistaken. No, you know, yes, stupidity counts. Tick also has a great podcast. The giz Wiz podcast it gives with that TV with his friend Chad Johnson, the old red head. And so when it snows 18 inches in New York, what do you stay inside? You said you walked down to the boat. No, there's no marine anymore. No boat anymore. Oh, you sold all your votes. So you don't have to go anywhere. And the Marina's abandoned. Yeah. Really? The whole marinas. Oh, that's right. They're going to build a new one. They're going to be a new one. No, I just went down to see the kids sledding and thinking. It's fun also to walk down right down the middle of Broadway, just right down the center line there. Nobody around. It's empty. Except for that. Still running. I would not do that. It was the one before the bus, is that the bus? Yeah. The bus, and then the snow drivers, no plug drivers driving 80 miles an hour, because they got a lot of snow to plow. Exactly. Dick D bartolo gives with his thank you, dicky D okay, buddy, see you next week. Have a wonderful week. You just take care. I want to thank all of our huge vast team that makes the tech guy possible. There's professor Laura, our musical director. And there's Kim chef for our phone angel. And there's a studio manager, John slain. And I this would be a good time celebrating 15 years with the premier networks, the syndicated show, the tech guy show. And 18 years with KFI in Los Angeles to thank Robin bertolucci at KFI for giving me a shot and Julie talbott at premiere networks for letting me go big time. I appreciate it. It's been a good run. It's not over yet. I hope lots more. Lots more to come. Leo Laporte,.

They are now the number one streaming music provider in the world. They have 33, I'm sorry, 3 billion 381 million. Monthly active users, and of those about half pay..

"Marks. You work yourself up. I wish I could tell you that Now there are people in New York City that walked into the radio station. And the program director took a chance on him and had a hit show. There are those who are community activists that got a hit show. There are those that are politicians that get a show. There are those It's really There is no rule. Andrew Honest to God. I wish I could tell you there's a rule. There is no rule. The hardest thing. The hardest thing. Is someone taking a chance. Usually, what they'll do is use you to fill in. Okay, they'll use you to fill in now And then if you get your foot in the door, that's pretty much gone as well, though. No, it's what a lot of lot of places are all syndicated now. What? It's not like You have that many local guys. Well, yeah, but for example, you have people that start on the board. For example, they just start on the board making a few bucks an hour like Ryan and Ryan starting to fill in, you know, Doesn't he do a good job? He's starting to fill in what Ryan does a. I'm telling you, Ryan doesn't kick ass job. You know, Here's what starting to fill in. Here's what Aunt does our board up? He does his own podcast, and he's fine tuning his career that way. See Andrew, Honest to God. I wish there was a way I could tell you. They do this one thing I can tell you for sure It wouldn't hurt to get a job behind the scenes to get to know people just get to know them, because let's put it this way. If there is an opening, if there's an opening, where someone is sick or anybody or if you ever want to do fill in work, and you're already working at the radio station, there is There is no chance that you would have no chance, meaning that everyone would give you a chance. Not on the air Live necessarily, but they would listen to you like for example, if aunt said, Hey, I want to do a show right now, if he said that now, they may not say okay, answer. Pick your day part. You have a show, but they wouldn't say no. No way because he's been here every day and he knows us so they may listen to him or listen to a tape and think. Hey, you know what? Take a shot at it like they did with Ryan. I mean, he fills in and he's doing a great job. I mean, we had. What's his name? Uh, I shouldn't say What's his name? He's uh Hallenbeck. Greg. Greg Hollenbeck was aboard op and and and he said, I'm going to do my own thing. I'm gonna do a podcast of modern eater, and he starts doing his own broadcast a restaurant show first. What he did was a restaurant show he bought time on a weekend. And started doing his own show. You know, if you think about it, that's exactly what happened to me. I did a computer show Microsoft sponsored it. Yeah, Yeah, I paid for the air time. Robin Bertolucci was a program director. She heard me on the show and said, Hey, you want to do some filling? Yeah. And so really, that's what you do, Andrew. You get it, you get heard. Or you get seen by people, you know, Um it's just one of those things. People love, my voice and I Yeah, but you know what? The voice is Probably the last thing you need. Okay? I wish I could tell you, I swear to God people think of voices what people want. They do for voice overs, and they do for announcing in all of that. But for talk show host. Um they don't really care that much. And her boys. It's something that you just have to have. You have to be well rounded in what you want to do, Andrew. The fact that you have a good voice is not. It's not necessarily what you need. It doesn't hurt you, but But what you need more than anything is a stick or something to talk about or something. You're really good at You understand that something that you can do that better than other people? Um, If you just want to get on and talk about politics, you're going to be joining a corral of hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people in every city that also want to do that. Yep. Get that. What's your stick? Andrew? Mark Major. What's your stick? Yeah, man. Uh, you're a good man. You live in Frank Town, Colorado. Love you. I'm an Elizabeth. Oh, cool, man. So what's your stick, Andrew? By stick. What do you want My stick to be, brother? No. I mean, what do you What do you What do you like talking about? Stick? Not stick. I mean, do you are politics? What would you talk about? If we said Hey, come in here for an hour. What the hell would you talk about? That's what he's asking. Yeah, I'd probably talk about the coronavirus and Donald Trump. But everybody does that right now, so that it doesn't By the way, it doesn't mean that it doesn't. That doesn't matter if everyone does it, but it is harder if everyone does it. I'm not saying that that you can't do that. But the more in your field of competition, the harder it is. That's you know, I I picked the knish. And and that's what I did. I invented it. You know what I mean? There was no one else I invented it Can. What's your comment on that guy on Andrew? What's your comment? Can Hey, Tom. How you doing? What? On the radio off and on since 1983. Yeah, and the way I started within promotions, getting out there and meeting the people. Talking and then became a board up good and then did then did production work and then finally got an air shift? What do you do now? What air shift? Where do you do it? I'm still back in promotions doing it part time. Good. On what station When you do it when you do on air, where do you do it? Country music station here in Wichita, Kansas. Very cool and see, I love entrepreneurs. And really, I wish there was something easy, but you're the path you took. Isn't necessarily what Andrew can take. Mike, What is your comment? Go ahead, Mike. Yeah. If you can get a radio talk shows like Peter Boyles strangle you like to eat it. Greg calling back that will give you a leg up. My I don't get what you mean. I think he's saying they gave him preferential treatment because of the incident. No. Greg was on the air long before that. Oh, see, I didn't know that. Of course he was. Yeah. Greg was on the he's been doing his modern eater stuff forever. Hasn't he was honored the way before that. I know Mike was just making a funny but, um yeah, And and really, uh, that was blown out of proportion. Anyway, All I'm saying is, is that Um, If you really want something, you figure out a way to do it, you know, but they a lot of careers right now. The book's been thrown out a lot of careers except for the professions like law. You know, you still have to go through all the stuff and medicine right? There are no shortcuts. And what else? Where, where It's still conventional teachers teaching a lot of it, though, when when it comes to entertainment. I don't care if it's television radio. A lot of it is who you know, man. It really is these days. Think of all the actors. Now who are we watching now? All their kids. I mean, it's like the same families generation after generation are creating the movies. Am I not correct Air? It's the same people if you they all get married. They all have offspring. If you have, um, something to contribute, though, and it's different, but But this is another thing. Even that Doesn't necessarily mean I think because here's what you have you have people like on YouTube that have 10 21 100 times the audience as most talk show host. And what and some of them they they sit there and and pick their nose and play a game on video. I mean, but they have a following. What is that following? It depends. I mean, you have, uh, You know pedophiles who teach you how to do makeup primer. You know how to do makeup? I mean, and they have a following..

"Kfi am six forty. John and ken show live everywhere on the iheartradio app. Oh close out the show coming up another round moist line friends for you. We got steve gregory in the studio. Here steve's got a special coming up this weekend. I was talking to him yesterday as he was embedded the county sheriff's department. They're homeless outreach. Team there in venice to see what they do and steven his conversations with wisconsin fitness. Yeah but this weekend. It's a big special. Steve just told me they're still putting it together. Editing it housed a look at homelessness in l. a. and orange county. What made you guys decide to put together. A big special. we were told by. Robin bertolucci director. Just say my idea. I thought with all my to help you with this. No actually it's it's part of an ongoing thing that we're really trying to do with the news department and it's get more hyper local. We take on topics that just deserve a little more deep dive. We get we get to come with you guys and talk about stuff but we're we're typically you did a lot on the wildfires that we're typically doing through your lands. You know what i mean and and and and you guys have a direction you're going whereas with something like this we get to just kinda take our time. Do the deep dive talk to people that We don't have timed it to play on your show or whatever and then we do a web component to it. So we're not gonna be solving anything this weekend. Were just going to do an overview of what's going on and what the problem is and what people are proposing they do to correct it or to try to attack it. So the title on house yeah. That's a tricky word. On the john. And ken show i know. Yeah we think it's a more politically correct way to refer to the homeless. Oh we thought you would do the hobo show. That didn't come up as an idea. The focus groups said no at no focus group. No believe me. There are focused curve. Focus groups said no the it was funny because a lot of people have already been commenting on social media about those kinds of things. Right love steve. But why didn't you call it. You know whatever and then they list the whole things. I should've called it but no in house because what we're trying to do when we come up. The title does anything to do with political correctness. It just it's we have very few characters in words to get the point across. So if i say on housed and then look at homelessness. They were good. But you got both words and apple words in there so the idea now is to call somebody homeless now all. That's too negative. We know we don't say those experiencing homelessness is true. We don't say that that's that's that's that's too much for us. I mean we. We don't have time to get to you. Know use five words for one word. We don't have time for that so there was probably no shortage of material here considering. I wanted the places. You're looking at this special skid row original still the original yuko there yeah in recently you went there. Yeah what i did was. I talked to the senior lead officer. Lapd's dion show dion joseph's great. He's great. He's talked about no person more qualified than a he to talk about this issue from a different perspective that no one sees And then we review echo park. We go back to echo park and talk about the politics there. Did you hear about the feces in the water. Yes goldstein did a great job on that ramp about that for fecal bacteria although it looks nice from what i understand from people that live there it when they have kept the bums out from. I'm sorry i'm on house well and so we actually talked to in played some sound of him on the show to a jolo sara lee. Who is the chief of the park rangers. Okay and that's who's keeping it yup from being in encampment site so they so far so good. If are so good and i was down there that they they reopened it and took the open up the gates and it was really fresh. The grass was good goodies. Malgas the water water getting into the water. Okay and then. I brought you cut today. This is tariq ali and he is a man. Who's a security guard for a skateboard shop on the venice boardwalk and i talked to him yesterday and he tells me a lot about how he's worked down there and how he gets along with people but one day this homeless person just come up on him started to attack him. Heard about this guy. Yeah and then let you tell him in his own words to make a long story. Short came towards me. And i'm mace them. But the may scott in my eyes and when he was coming towards me he had a broken bottle and he attacked me with the broken bother stab me and my side stab me in my head. Cut my risks and my finger. I it was either fight or flight and i chose the fight and i subdued him. After that i went to the hospital. They gave me a x ray and afterward stitch me up and sent me home Unfortunately they never gave me in the antibiotics. And i lost a finger due to this incident. He said they had to amputate your finger. They had to amputate my finger. Oh no yeah. Spirit sound okay. He's much better now but he still pretty shaken up. The man is six five. I'm six two. Oh he's six five. He's a big man. Why and he had been a small man he got killed. Yeah got bum rushed by this homeless guy. Bum rushed did it get it. Say on house rush. That's a word that i grew up around had nothing to do with homeless in my daddy's expression to give them the bum's rush. Okay so here. i'm gonna show you own picture of him all right. Oh he does a big always missing the second finger. What is the the ring finger is it gassing missing the ring finger. Oh no it was a security guard for a business. They're right or samples shop. Yes and that's the guy that puts up signs have you seen his signs He puts up signs like goodbye. Bonnin thank you sheriff alex. Well here's the thing. He wouldn't come on the show but he said the sign. Speak for me. But i had heard we heard from connection that the security guard worked for him. Yeah and we're like get that story but you did very good. Yeah and he You know there was a go fund me page and they raise money for the guy. Oh yeah yeah. It was really sad story. I mean he was in. He's still shaken up. I mean he really is not only visibly what is that. How does he do for income. Nowadays he's always working there. He's working but he said it's just not the same for him he's got he's a little gun shy right he's really trying to get his confidence back. But you know when you're now you're one finger show. It's very very tough situation but he got You know what the second part of that story is hospital to give me antibiotics. Yeah i heard that part right. Yeah i mean so. That's kind of crazy but it so the the man who attacked him was arrested. I'm not sure the disposition of that of that man's case course but La county da kicked or is it city attorney. Now it'd be. It'd be a felony so county felony resulted much. Thanks to gas gone. So we'll do when you did take orange county.

"From Kobe mural dot com, sees a deeper personal meaning and Bryant's legacy. His legacy to me is two fold at a very high level. It's obviously him is a champion. And what he did for the city and for Lakers fans across the world and as a diehard Laker fan. I'm grateful for that forever, but his legacy more so I think today than ever is his work ethic and his mentality. And the thing that has stuck with me during this entire process. Just talking to fans and artists is it doesn't matter what you do who you are. Doesn't matter. You could imply what this man did in his life. The way he worked How early he got up. How he pushed through during those days when you didn't want to work this hard That applies to everybody, every ethnicity, every background, So for me personally, that's the thing that always stick out for me is as his true legacy. There's a common theme and how people see Bryant's legacy. Black Mamba. Man of conviction. A loving husband, a devoted father, a citizen who gave back who helped an inspired his community. Even though, is another country's a man who was driven to success but not at the cost of his family. The one legacy Bryant leaves for everyone is the Mamba mentality, a constant quest to be the best version of oneself off of you. Always Kobe.

"If I am 40 you have Dr Wendy Walters. This is that Dr Wendy Walsh. Oh, I missed you guys last son. Wait. I know we had another new special. It was important and it was good and our program director director Robin Bertolucci swears that's the last time I'll be preempted. Should we hold her to it, But I want to tell you what I did before I tell you what I did. Let's talk about what's coming up in the show. You know, there's so much news about what's going on at the Ellen Show, and I have a little bit of experience myself working for big name television shows, So I have a bit of an insider's view. But I do want to talk. About sort of what is a toxic workplace and and is it really and what we can do about it? I also have a special guest who had an explosive Facebook post this week because she outed another talk show. Host, and so we'll talk a little bit about that. Also this week, our kids are going back to school. I've got some news on their sleep schedules that might raise their test scores in also have a listener, friend, follower. We're going to get into that what that means in a minute. Who is recovering from Kobe 19. He is going to join us and new data on singles in America more than half of single people in America. Say they don't even want a relationship. Let's explore using my lens of evolutionary psychology. Okay, if you knew to my show, I am Dr Wendy Walsh. I have a PhD in clinical psychology. I'm also a professor of health psychology at Cal State Channel Islands, and I'm very interested in the intersection of love. And our health and our relationships. Whether those relationships between be between our family members and parenting relationships are workplace relationships. And, of course, our primary attachment figures. So because I work on a Sunday whenever I have a Sunday off, the first thing I'd do is behave like a normal person and go away for the weekend. And as you know, I've been taking all kinds of crazy car trips, visiting friends on land and farms and ranch in various states. In the last few months, so I decided to head up the five To go to Oregon again to visit a friend, South Oregon and I got us Faras San Francisco That's on Leah's faras I got but before I tell you what happened. Have you guys been to San Francisco lately? Oh, my goodness. Brooke, Producer broker you with me? Do you know what's going on in San Francisco right now? I don't know that I do. Besides that. It's now raining snowy ash. Yeah, another the tennis fires everywhere. Well, I was there just before the fires. But in my opinion, it looked like a post apocalyptic ghost town. I went there to visit my daughter and because she's a millennial, I couldn't actually see her in indoor space. So we're walking around the city in the evening going to get food and ice cream and just being outside and because all the tech companies closed The towers are empty and dark. Everybody had left And then because of the protests, many of the stores just stayed boarded up. In fact, I was looking for a Walgreens. I'll tell you why in a minute and I could not find everything was boarded up. It looked like literally a ghost town and lovely homeless gentleman suggested that I just go knock on the boarded up door over there and I'm like, Are you sure? And I'm like knocking on all boarded up windows and doors thinking this is crazy, and a security guard opens and there's a full on Walgreens going on in there, and you couldn't tell from the street. It was just dark. And so then we walked. Ah! You know, through she lives in Haynesville Hayes Valley. I think I don't know San Francisco, but we go and by City hall huge tent cities because what has been left as all the working people vacated are sadly more homeless people than you could imagine. It makes Venice look like light homeless light and I live in Venice. So let me tell you and then There was so much police activity. I got to tell you. I saw a police officer moments after he was attacked by a young man and I watched him in the back of the ambulance having his head bandaged up and blood flowing. I watched super polite police officers take this man into custody. Yes, he was black and I watched 20 people with cell phone cameras aimed at the cops the whole time, And I was just like, Oh, my gosh. How does anybody get their job done? How does anybody I mean? There's so much stress with the remaining people. All of City Hall is a tent city all around there now. So just be thankful we live in L. A in Southern California. At least we have space and the fires aren't as bad and our thoughts go out to our friends and family and loved ones who live in Northern California because it's a wild show right now. So why didn't I make it? Oregon? Well, I got to San Francisco. I was chewing on some gum, and my crown came out like, you know, something that was probably put in 30 years ago. I don't know. It just popped out. Well, you would think Pop it back in, Wendy. Keep on go in. No, no, no, It was the whole thing. When I tried to put it back in it just crushed and fell apart and added exposed Nerve. Hot, sensitive, cold, sensitive air sensitive. I couldn't eat. I couldn't drink couldn't breathe. So I got on the phone trying to leave messages with, like emergency dentists in Oregon and course nobody got back to me. So I got up the next morning and drove back. But I have to tell you I don't live a life like you guys. Sunday is normally not my alof. I get to run my errands on times like, you know, Monday morning at 11. I'm at Costco Tuesday morning at 10 when everybody else is in the office normally, right, so I don't have a sense off What weekend driving. Is in southern California. So I start heading down the hot five and I say hot, It was 122 degrees. My thermostat read on my car and at certain points, the five I was in a total dead stop. I mean nothing but desert and brown farmland everywhere, 18 wheelers and me And like, why We're three hours out of l. A why, with its Sunday afternoon traffic It took me In San Francisco to L. A. You ready on a Sunday 11 hours to get home 11 hours..

"40 you have Dr Wendy Walsh, would you okay? We're talking about how we're all going to come out of this pandemic a better person than when we went in. I mentioned learning from history, read what other people have done in situations, read amazing stories of entrepreneurs who looked at this gift of time and said, Ha. I'm gonna create this or do that. Matt look at models of people who have survived. Secondly, think like a survivor, you know, I'm reminded. By years ago, I went to the believe it or not. The bond around school of high performance driving was one in Arizona that used to have a dove. He taught us that where your eyes go your hands. Go on the steering wheel your arms. Just follow your sight. So just a little driving tip for everybody. If you're going down a two lane highway on it's scary and it's night and you're in the mountains or something. And you see an 18 wheeler truck coming towards you in the other lane. Don't look at it. Look over the line on the right on your passenger side. Because wherever your eyes go, your arms will follow. It will steer you out of danger. If you look at an oncoming danger, you could possibly drive white right to it. Okay, So the same goes with survival. You have to literally tell your brain on a regular basis. That this is great. This is a great opportunity and you're going to do so many things because of it. You're gonna be a different person. At the end, however. You won't get anything done. If you sit in a place of anxiety, some people naturally have a lot of anxiety. Other people It's invoked by the environment right now. And so you got to take care of your biochemistry. Means exercise, sleep, meditate. Just reset your biochemistry so that you can reduce anxiety and then focus on the positive thoughts. You know, this is an opportunity to train train for life after cof int. Some people are doing amazing jobs, taking master classes online. I have learned how to edit movies. My daughter learned how to sew. My other daughter has is selling things online, and now she's making jewelry she was selling like No thrift, ng closed old clothes and stuff, and it's so much you have to learn how to take the payments. How to take the bids. Get it into papal Get the shipping label, ship it to the person. It's so good for teenagers to learn this stuff, But now she's going to make her own jewelry line and see how that sells. So this is a time where you can do what you've always wanted to do. I was walking with a friend the other day, and she was telling me about a great business idea. And then she finally Crystallised what she needed to do to make her business dream come true. So train yet the training you need Having a time where we pause is really being given the gift of time. Also connect with positive people who are thriving. Have you ever heard the saying you are the average of the five people? You're closest to Think about it. We are many one minds, right? We're all kind of connected in some way. And if you are hanging out and connected with people, even if they're your closest family members with people who are negative Who are fear based who don't think highly of you and don't make you feel good. When you're around them, then you need to limit Your exposure to these people. You need to get rid of them in your life. If you're contacting them in some way and instead reach out to people who can elevate you. Reach out to people who can inspire you. And don't be shy about it. Maybe it's a former colleague and old friend from college. Somebody who haven't been in touch with for a long time you like I'd really like to get in touch with that person. That's what Social Media's four right not just ranting about politics, Social media's about sending direct messages to people you know, in the real world to keep in touch with them. Right? So think about your social world because we are a complete product of our social world. Focus on the future. I mentioned earlier planned trips. You don't take planned businesses. Hopefully that you will build think about I mean, if you have not redone your linked in Profile During this pandemic. You're like the last person so catch up.

"And he was just complimenting about how much fun that interview was, and I was telling him I was very serious about that question of Michael. Useless about, you know, needing possibly AH radio hosts as a cameo in the Batman. That was not a joke question. Who is the real question? I want my spot. I want my spotlight. I want to go down in history and a Batman movie. But that's another conversation for another day during this cove in 19 crisis, there are a number of people who have been put in a different space. And what I mean by that is maybe you're accustomed to working in a traditional off the setting. Maybe you've always done that and thiss. If you're fortunate enough not to have been laid off and I do mean fortune. It just depends on the industry. Maybe you're working from home. Maybe you are telecommuting for the first time in your career, and you're probably finding out as many people have found out. It's very different. It's a different Type of work ethic. It's a different type of approach I could say working in radio, we have had the benefit of having technology be at a point where we can do a lot of this at home. In the sense of being able to broadcast maybe a year or two ago, it would have been financially. Prohibitive to be able to do that. And I remember having a conversation with our boss in a collective sense, Robin Bertolucci, and it was right after our when Kobe Past. And it was a Sunday if I'm not mistaken, you know Sunday the ground yet and I was home and Robin called me and said, Mo, how quickly can you get on the air? And I said, I don't know him like maybe an hour and 1/2 away and highlighted the The physical limitations of doing radio at times, and Robert and I had a number of conversations like, Hey, we need to make sure that we're at a place where we can broadcast wherever we are at a moments notice and we started the process then And not even thinking about anything having related to do with a pandemic. And so when the pandemic hit, we were able to flip that switch. And make sure we did it when in the course of maybe two or three days, I think Getting as many hosts up to speed to be ableto work from home and it's a different dynamic. Trust me. If you don't know anything about radio, it's hard enough to just be a broadcaster. And for the most part, this is a luxury. I can see you. Jennifer Jones Lee, I can see your facial expression. I can see your smile. I can see you laugh and also hear you laugh. I can see Jonathan Ramirez in his ugly mug. I can see more you I get some sort of facial feedback, but for the most part, you're in this box by yourself. And when you're doing it from home, even though it's an office studio setting, you don't have any type of immediate feedback. So is a different environment. For many hosts. That's just my particular circumstance. But I'm quite sure there number people listening who've been working from home using zoom or any sort of other technology, and it's a completely foreign world. Working from home and I've done it before. When I was a producer for Ryan Seacrest for his American top 40 program many many years ago, I was telling commuting and it forces you to be very judicious. An organized with your time. You have to make sure that you're making a concerted effort to have a clearly defined workday. In other words, I get up in the morning and I would definitely take a shower. I would go to a place in my then apartment, which was reserved only for just work. So I approached it with the seriousness of work, and I and I had the the focus of being a worker didn't have the TV on. It didn't have any type of other distractions, which were more consistent with being at home to make sure my work was on a certain level, and I met my deadlines. Those returning emails are making the phone calls as faras booking guests within that time frame in which people were who were in a a tradition office setting were there It forced me to up my game. That's not necessarily true with everyone. Have you ever been in a situation where you are in a telecommuting type situation? Jennifer? Not really. But I know when I was given the opportunity to either broadcast from home or come in here. I was like, Oh, let me go in there all day long Explain that because I did not want to lose that momentous, um, that I feel every morning when I get up there Energy. Yeah, There is something about God. It's you know, three o'clock in the morning, but still it it's I get up. I have a routine and when I get in the car, there's this laser focus on. Okay. I'm listening to all the stories. I'm focused on What's happening today? I didn't want to lose that. And even though in the mornings I am in here by myself. There is nobody to feedback or anything like that. There's still something about putting my fingers on the board having the mic right here having the two computer screens that sort of thing that I didn't want to lose. And so I could see how that could be a real possibility. I got three dogs and a cat running around the house and yes, like I could see how I could get lost in that very quickly And that would Negatively impact your work product 100%. Your broadcast presentation style, your focus all those things and we can't lose focus in this Now. There are certain days like, for example, when they said, Hey, but we need you to fill in for Bill are going to be doing it from your home or you to be here said No. I've got to be here. I have to be if we're doing handle on the news, and I need to be able to see folks as best I can now weighing. He is not within eyesight. He's Connected remotely, but as many people as possible I need to be able to see you. If we're going to be going stories back forth back and forth from everyone. Could you imagine if um Wayne was remote? I was remote and you are remote, and none of us could see Jon. We couldn't putting see Morgan. It will be a calamity of error. Yes, everybody stepping on each other. And yeah, it would be mess. These are the things that I think that people lose sight of the unintended consequences you think? Oh, yeah, we could work from home. Not necessarily. Not totally. This is the Bill Handel Show.

They say, hey dude, you can't run on the track while the horse running around because. Yeah. Because but how crazy women he turns it goes. But these Phillies Phillies are chasing after me. I was talking to my, my sister and, and she said, she goes you really have a really good crew around you. And I said, I said, I don't think that even describes them. I said, I think benders, the best news guy in the world, there's nobody in the world. I mean, if I if I had my choice of the seven billion people on on this planet, there's no way, I'd replace if I had a choice, but don't replace bender with anybody. Nobody.

I've always said, she was the heart and soul of not only this show, but the station station group. And I always said Robin. I said, hey, if she ever becomes available love to ever work on the show. And then I remember where I was I was at Roosevelt elementary school in his Saturday at noon, and I got a call from Robin Bertolucci, our boss here, and she goes, hey, I got good news. Bellio starts on your show on Monday, and like ding Dong ding Dong. Ding dong. Maybe I would just say, all right. Maybe right on, and there's nobody better than Mondo producing and born up. You know with the show doing all the audio every day, I, not only getting, you know, cool stories but knows about music, and it was about food. He has so much used to the show. And if there's anything. Young on this show. It comes from Mondo because he's like, twelve and then angel, and Angel Martinez. Nobody she here. No. She's off this week is her birthday trip vacation week. Oh, then I have to talk much about her. She's not gonna hear exactly. Oh, okay. Well, forget it. Then nobody. She really is great. She knows everything about try, and then she adds the show. She's she's thought of as the most beautiful voice and talk radio guy wrote a song about it. So I tell my sister this and I go through all the different positions here. And I said, I really I feel that I'm like the weakest link here every night, and she stops for a second. She goes. Yeah. Now that you mentioned. She goes, it does sound that way. That sounds like you know everybody else at the top of their game. And then you sort of just slid in under the door. Yeah. That's, that's the way I'd prefer it I'd hate to think that I was the best. And all of you guys were horrible at your job that make it horrible to come in every night. The best and we were horrible and you guys were all terrible your job. I'll be like oh, this sucks coming in every night, but I got for everybody mad. It'd be rough for me. I'd hate it. Right.

And then after the seminar. Guy comes up to me and says, hey, if you're ever been syndicated, and I said. Well, yeah. But for one night, and it didn't work out. Jeez. That's funny. True story we were syndicated in. I'm in Salt Lake City with me and stickler. Chad Benson this. Yes. Of all cities. I know city city. That is funny. What year was this one thousand nine hundred ninety s. Stories. Great story. I would've loved. Oh, great. And so we talked to the program director up in Utah. And he was a nice guy right family guy. And and I said he was excited. I was on the on the on the station and medical up more bucks, not a lot. And we said, all that's great. You know, very nice to meet you. We're on a speakerphone. And then he said Monday's the big night. We start on Monday at seven to eleven o'clock or seven to ten. It's great. We can't wait. So we go on seven to ten and we said, hey, we're in Salt Lake City. So if you're in Salt Lake City, turn on, you know, the big talker, you know, ten ninety. K C O F or whatever it was. Yeah. Yeah. And. And then we got a call and like eight in the morning on Tuesday. And our boss here said, hey, can you guys come in early? They wanna talk to you about something that happened last night. In Salt Lake City. What happened in Salt Lake City? I thought we I guess we missed some news that happened there. Maybe a oil refinery blew up or a train or I don't know the tabernacle caught fire, and we didn't cover it. Right. And it's a big story. So we go in there. And there's a speaker phone Jack calls the guy up and the guy gets on the speaker phone, and we said, hey, guys, we got we had a problem in. In Salt Lake City. I did it go on the air. So you're on the air you're on for four hours. And he says which one of you guys said GD whole term. And said I said I said it and the program director says, well, we're not fellas we're not used to that kind of language up here. And secular said, gee, dammit. Dabid? Jay, jay. This is tell me when you get used to it. Was it one night? Only what I'd only one night. And that got us out of a big commitment. Tuck that's all syndicated one night. So then this guy walks up to you today says he goes, hey, you're been syndicated, and I told him that story, and he says, well, he says we're not in Salt Lake City. And he says would you like to be syndicated? And so I mean, it it seems. It seems like not a great deal more money, and you have to deal with nine hundred program directors instead of just one, and he's now is a lot of money in it. So maybe bellio you, and I and and Mondo and bender and an angel. Maybe we're we're moving on. Let's take a. Absolutely. All right, syndicated or not, okay. Say not my vote probably for maybe one and a half. I don't know. All right. Bellio. I say, yes. Yes. Mondo yet. Abo- bender. Yes angel is. No, a a is. No. You have to deal with have to get angel to do national traffic, Sherry does Hawaii Phoenix slow. But man, if you're in Atlanta, you're cruise. Air traffic control do that. We can do this.

Doubt that universal. I think it was just the same old crap that you know, I like my friends accused me of having the same nine stories, but I just change friends every six months. To tell you you've had some new ones lately. Got into the archives. There's some stuff I hadn't heard digging deep. You have been you've done some good. We heard the Salt Lake City one ever, really. I had. I hadn't heard that. I have did I tell you about my my uncle sailing. It's for extra weight. Oh, man. That's a beauty. I remember that today but up in in Erie, which is the northern shore of lake eerie. It's the Canadian shore of Lake Erie. We were in a like a tiny, lark. It was like a eighteen foot sailboat wooden sailboat and we'd go out on Sundays and just race against other wooden. It wasn't a big organized thing. But it was really Howland one day and we needed extra week because we were young we were like fourteen or fifteen and the boat would flip over just to fourteen year olds are out there. So I said to my uncle Dan Bresnahan who is probably in his seventies. I say damn well, you come on with us be extra weight and he's from Ireland or Scotland, and he goes high lead. I can't wait to do it. Right. And he's a. Big guy. He's like two hundred and forty pounds. So he gets in the boat. And we didn't know that he had spent all night drinking. We could probably soom we just didn't put it together. And so the one that fell into the Christmas tree. Now that was my uncle, Tom. But my uncle Dan gets on the boat and about ten minutes into it. He could see sick. Right and say this guy is part me. I got I got to see what I had to drink last night. I said, okay. So he leans over the side of the boat. To throw up and does both. No and..

"From the KFI twenty four hour newsroom. I'm Erin vendor. KFI AM six here. Me out. Bender. We're looking at rain tonight. Rain overnight. See it though. I think they're lying to us. Okay. Take care of everybody. No. You know what? I'll play you the Fritz forecast. All right. Well, you at Fritz said last weekend. Fritz said it's gonna be really a tough Saturday. Right. And he was one hundred percent, right. Nailed it. In fact, that was an understatement. He said it's going to be the worst. Biggest rain story have had in years. And it exactly was that. The wind was whipping and the rain was raining. The puddles were Republican and the jello. Jiggling? But that's an old chick Hern reference for people that are under ninety five year old. What does he doing? What was it? The jello. The eggs are cool and. And butters getting hard and the well hold on. Now, we've got to the eggs were cool and the butter was getting hard bellows. Why why why are going back and forth? What did he say you? Had somebody working with them. Did you hear it when they won? Oh, that's right. When it was put in the refrigerator. Oh, the lights are out. Yeah. Doors closed. Oh, that's right. Okay. Right lights out doors, close the doors close allies throughout the butters, getting hard, the eggs or cooling and the jello Jalen now. But did he ever put a game in the frigerator the came out of the fridge? I heard he had done that really. I heard it was a few times, but very rare so rare. Well bellio. Who's with Lakers heard? It was once casual guy with his new podcast. Charts? So we will debate a bender on. So just real quick looking up. You know, this chick ISM. I cannot believe that term. I cannot believe how many every day basketball terms. He coined let me try to get some of them. Okay. All right. I know some of them with slam dunk. One of them was yes, I was. Yoyoing up and down. Yes. A player dribbles in one place as if he were playing with the string. Let me see. The whole refrigerator thing was his right? No harm. No foul that chick. Yeah, there it is. Fouls. Stitches bustards off. Oh, that's great. What is the mustards off the hot dog? What does that mean when they're showboating in the fall? Right. A lot of times. It'll be like when they tried to do a Nola. A no look pass like magic did. But then the ball goes flying into the crowd instead of to the guy who's intended for yelich when they go to slam dunk, and he hits the base of the rim and flies thirty feet backwards. Right. Do like a three sixty or something like that. And then they trip and it's turnover right? Exactly. But that's that's back when they were wearing those really long shorts. When I used to go like literally almost to their ankles is really bizarre. Right, right. Yeah. That's exactly what they're almost like polo. It's yeah. Right. Yeah. Then they went to the really short shorts. And then they went back. I mean, they went down to like almost like. Opie shorts at one point. Remember, the really short story. John stockton. Sure. That's right. Yeah. Right. So two of the two of the phrases that he coined I didn't realize these two I I knew he did slam dunk. He came up with garbage time. I didn't know that. Yeah. And that's Robin Bertolucci came up with. Well, played to describe the show, and we knew about and triple double. Triple double the triple. Double was not was not as stat. There was left until he called it. Correct. Getting ten or more points are ten or more rebound. Or assists or steals or or points in? In three categories. He coined that. That's incredible. Yeah. That really is an announcer. Love chick chick was the best and Bella worked with them for how long how many years his last two years only two years. Yeah. And that's horrible. Those are good two years though. They were great. Yeah. Those are championship years were did he was he traveling with the team? Then you know, he was still traveling was waiting until he had what was he? Yeah. I think he was eighty one right? Yeah. And he he fell in the summer of two at his home hit his head. Dining. Later in Sinoe. In the offseason in August. I remember somebody at his funeral. Was like way really really emotional. A lot of people were very close. No. I know. Yeah. Look if you're close to me, emotional, I get it. But there was there was a guy at that funeral who was way over the top emotional who probably was eyeball and chicks seat. I hope that wouldn't happen. It did it did mention his name. But yeah, who was it? I remember him. Crying chicks funeral going jigger. Uh-huh. And meanwhile, he's like looking at chick. See like, hey, I wonder how quickly I can start calling these games. What's his name again until they tell us off the air. But it wasn't a good. Look where were you were? You did you went.

"The way, the holidays and just in case you're playing the home game. I'm Nielsen Vedro. But coming out of the holidays the picture is that people send me even our fearless leader, Robin Bertolucci. One of the first things we talked about when we got back was a cake pitch made the Noel the holiday cake, and it was beautiful, and we talked about the frosting and everything like there's something about as we come out of the holidays into this new year here, it's the holidays almost forced us to to stop and to bake and to cook, and you know, just stepped down a little bit. And we find out that we actually look like it's fun to focus on that time best, you know. But it is there's something I didn't get to cook. Or bake as much as I thought I was going to over the holidays. But you know, it's just a it's something about that. That is really you prefer baking cooking depends on my mood. Okay. Definitely depends on my mood baking is very therapeutic to me is. So is cooking. But it's too. Different things. They're two different things to me. So I have a different bond with baking because I think I baked more with my mom, I remember myself, helping my mother bake more than ever helped her cook. So, you know, standing by her side when she was making homemade tortillas or she was making biscuits, or you know, those things kind of stick with me. And so I think it has a different place for me. But I love to cook. A I love the kind of orchestrating like the different flavors, and it's like a little bit more here a little bit more their change this change that. So it depends on my mood. You know, you know, what you do the same thing. It's just what the weather I love to bake when it gets when it gets cold the holidays, kind of makes note of that. It's like boom, you start going into you start going into fall and feels like you should be making pies and cookies and things. You know, which means you bake, you gotta eat it. And you eat it, and then you gain weight, and then you're in a situation like me where it's like, okay. Maybe you got to eat less. Dieting is one of those things that I'm not a fan of dieting. And it's I I'm gonna pause everybody goes, no crap. That's it's not about being a big guy. It's about that. I don't think dieting is healthy a lot of ways not to being heavy is it's the craziness and then beating yourself up and going back and forth. So there's not always a great system. But there are lifestyle changes, which is the real thing you have to change lifestyle. Right. And so Steve Gregory. Met up with pendulum were both fans of his and met up with him at CS in Las Vegas, and they talked about weight loss and technology. And I thought you'd get a kick out of hearing it and the great insight. So let's give it a listen. Penn. Gillette is half of the magic and comedy team of Penn and teller was always dealing with his wait until a life changing moment. I was in the hospital. They were going to actually do that thing to my stomach, maybe lose weight by blood pressure was horrible spoke to Gillette at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and asked him if the hospital visit forced to radical change. I don't trust. Anyone says in the hospital New Year's Eve or right after orgasm all three of those things happen to be at the same time. But you never trust any sort of crisis decision made. But he says he took the time to research in lose the weight carefully. Real thing for me.

"Yeah. It does look that. They're stacked up over the Pacific show. It's very possible. And the heaviest day they say could be Saturday, which is when the Rams the play a home game and host the Dallas Cowboys. Well, I don't know about that. Break in things on Saturday. You don't what the the lowest like crappy seats for that game are going for five hundred dollars. Wow. It's gonna be a great game. It's going to be a great. I don't know at least at this early stage. I don't think it'll be wet. I mean, I think there will be a gap in things on good on Saturday into early Sunday. And that's again, the timing could shift so this could be wrong. But at least right now, that's the way it looks. But anyway, what are you doing for the ram game? You're gonna watch anywhere. I'm going Las Vegas. Tell my I have an annual trip that I make with a bunch of guys who go for the play offs this this playoff weekend. And so we're going to will all be there. Unfortunately, I've lost so much. I don't have any more money to to wager. So I need to maybe started go fund me or I don't know that if those that's quite let you go on go fund new when you're trying to raise money to gamble. I don't think they do know. Hey, but I I now I got a dilemma here. All right. One of my good friends. Is the president of Fox Sports guiding. What's Eric shanks? Yeah. Right. Sure. He's been on here on the show called in. It's a matter of fact, he was listening to the program one night and he hurt his play. Johnny cash that ragged old flag. And he said I'm going to use that in the Super Bowl, and he designed video because he heard that on this show ran for like three minutes or two and a half minutes during the Super Bowl. Yeah. That's pretty cool. So I had lunch with Eric. And Don Martin and Robin Bertolucci the four of us had lunch a couple of weeks ago. And I said, hey, Bob, I said. He said if you ever wanna come by swing by the FOX studios to watch NFL Sunday or NFL Saturday in this case come on. We got a great room where people can watch and hang out with with the fellas. Shared l like, Terry Bradshaw. Howie long Michael stray ham Jimmy Johnson you'd like to hang out with them. But I am I am I glommed on if I say, hey, can I pop by. No. Of course, not Europe your legitimate star in your own that, right? Absolutely. You should go by there. But but should I go alone? Or should I bring like I'd bring I bring the whole family, and maybe some friends you wanna go. No, that's what I would do. Yeah. How many people can you packing into that RV? I'll bring my ceasing pan. How about me pulling up with the? Yeah. And nineteen guys. Hey, hey. They're going to be hard time about would you get a line here and talk some sense are these people. Or how about we? We all go in the RV and ago guys. I'll be back in about two hours. This part of the trip is not for you, fellas. But I, but I'd love to go over there. But I don't want to feel like I'm like mooching, or or you know, or imposing imposing an asking too much of this guy right now, I'm the same way. That's why I dropped my, you know, my thing as soon as somebody gets to be really famous and rich I drop away from them. I like them when when they're kind of up, and then they you know, instead of going, hey, I've been there since the beginning. I wanna I don't wanna be now just a hanger on. But but I appreciate where you're coming from. But I think it is an offer that was sincere, and I'm here. Love to see you there. The playoffs might be a little harder because things like maybe the demand might be up for a big playoff weekend that maybe or right in LA the big game in LA or it might be easier where there's only one game going on. Because when there's five or six games on FOX. Then those guys, you know, how long and Michael Strahan. They off to watch every game because they got a common comment on the games. Now is only one game you can sorta half acid. You know, look over your Jimmy Johnson shoulder. I've mentioned that if if I go over there, I guess it's much easier weekend for you guys you can kind of half asset. Who's this guy? Junior. That that NFL Sunday show. They do it right over there. Yeah. When when FOX I got the NFL I used to go over there and hang out. It was really cool. Really? Yeah. And they do have a room. That's what he said. Eric. It called the polka room or something like that. I don't think it's that like the avocado rooms. Room. Anyway, it's room with all of these monitors. And it was cool. And you had they were all hanging out there. Terry Bradshaw and James James Brown. Right. And anyway, all the guys were the original the troop. And I think it would be fun. You ought to do it. I mean, you've got to connect. Why not do it? You know, what the NFL does now, which is smart. And I think it helps ratings is that CBS will promote the the following weekends games. But they'll say, oh, you can catch that on NBC or didn't catch it on FOX. They ever used to do that. No, you're right. I think the whole world has evolved. I'm talking with the media world when it comes to sports. Right. So that they're now, you know, now trying to withhold that information the old days they would. And it's I think it's all part of the idea that it's it's all NFL broadcasting the NFL may actually require the networks do that. Because you're right. It's their product. They're trying to get out there. They don't want to hide where they can see it. Yeah. That's a you're right. It might be a new edict, although certainly for many years, they hit it big time. Yeah. You could see it on another network. But there was a there was an article. And the title of the article it appeared on drudge report, I think that's where I probably saw. But is on the drudge report and the title of the article, I can pull it up here. Here. It is. Why isn't the title coming up? Anyway, the title of the article is FOX twenty five seasons. Doing NFL has changed the game and they're crediting. Fox's coverage of the NFL with changing the game. Isn't that? Crazy. Well, I think they were the first to do the line right there. I think they were to do like five or six guys who have all played or coached and sitting around with with with the pre game and Japan. I don't think they were. But live been making it entertaining. It wasn't just Xs and os personality. I'll give a lot of credit, but there's already a lot of personality had Jimmy the Greek on CBS. They had Pete acts down because there are a lot of ways that they were trying to inject a different dynamic in that pre-game show. But I'll tell you what FOX did. I mean, I think you're a disgruntled FOX I love FOX. In fact, I I still always root for FOX. I watched the watch the FOX shows I watch their news. I watch I also bug in the upper you. No sorry. We'll dump the last twenty. They're the first ones. To do the bug. But in the bug that where the score and all the information is is there onscreen all the time box. Brought that to the game. You know, they say they go they say what receiver had how many yards running back yard? So they do that. Because these fantasy sports exactly now, they're all doing it. But but FOX was first of the party with the with the information on the screen like that. And now, you're seeing different ways. In fact, if you look at ESPN they have their own way of keying all that stuff in some of it's on the field from its lower third. So all these different networks are doing it now. But I think FOX's first of that party. And whoever created the camera that is like literally twelve feet over the players zips around is unbelievable. So cool man, they had a I don't know. Whether it was I think it was FOX and NBC over the weekend or CBS where they followed a kickoff return from the bears when the bears needed to they had forty five seconds to go all the way down to kick field. And they're they they returned a kickoff. Like, I don't know forty six yards or forty three yards, and they followed the guy all the way that man. That's a great. Shot. Yeah. Those kickoff returns. That's maybe the best one. Yeah. Yeah. Because if the guy rips it for for anything at all, it's just show dramatic has the football ever hit that camera. I mean like during like a pass or field goal kick or anything not that I know of maybe bender. Not that I know of. All right. I don't know why it took as long as it did. But finally they have cameras in the end zone pylons at the corner of the corners of the end zones. They finally have cameras in those pylons. I like pylon cameras big-time FOX did a lot of stuff with with cameras. They put cameras in second base, for example in baseball. They did a lot with hockey the lipstick camera in front of home plate. Yeah. So I think now, especially as the technology becomes so much more manageable. You can do so many more things because everything's lighter and lower cost. There is a lot more all over the place. But I I feel as though FOX has really broken a lot of molds that way. Here's a quick whip around. How much did the NFL get this season from.
