God snapping his fingers doing that finger snap thing. I was doing the same thing. As I said, you should look up the list of sitcoms and one hour dramas. That's Sammy appeared on He was in every kind of sitcom you can possibly imagine. It's fascinating some you'd never guess Cowboys. It comes just just Haywood made as a guest or playing himself. Yeah. Cool. Yeah. Right. Not squad. Beverly Hillbillies. Here's Lucy on the family. Chico, the man Carol Burnett, Charlie's Angels, Archie Bunker's Place General Hospital. The Jeffersons Fantasy Island.

He came from a place of Yes, Ray say well that I've seen the rifleman appearance to. It was just on a week or so ago and that's what led me to look it up. It's like Sammy, What the hell are you doing on this show? That's on that network. You watch that tobacco is called to back. What's it? What's the network Well done. What's it called? Um, grit. Great TV, TV TV. Yeah, I thought it was to Backe. Anyway. Dawn. Got the to bag your f riend. Thank you, Um, back to the Warner Brothers fight with Christopher Nolan Director Christopher Nolan. Unleashed a girl. It's like a real housewife of New Jersey wrote it. He wrote a scathing reaction to Warner Brothers decision to put their entire slate of movies on streaming yesterday. And okay, So one of the things one of the big problems that people are pointing out is the whole genies are hard to put back in the bottle argument. Which is immediately would I thought because how is far as theaters too concerned? What did they do after this? Because look at Netflix. Netflix Follow me here. Netflix unleashed a genie that Kevin Spacey pointed out. We I referenced this all the time because I remember that day on our show, Lex. Kevin Spacey was on Letterman. This was right after house of cards started airing on Netflix and Letterman was very dismissive off Netflix. He didn't understand it. This was before Netflix was what before Netflix is what it is now. And Kevin looked at looked at, David said. This will change everything. Because now People. Consumers will get entertainment when they want it, how they want it. And whenever they want it on, he goes in. You're never gonna It's this is this is this is going to change everything. And I remember Kevin Spacey saying that and Lex we got on the air the next day, and we were both like he's absolutely right. Um it is. We're now in a binged culture. So what zoo? Why I brought that up. The parallel is as this article points out. You are now going to be teaching us over the next 14 months. You're going to be teaching us that consumers that we do not have that we can sit on our sofas and the biggest movies of the time will come to us. Mm hmm. Do we already have that lesson, though? That's why I'm kind of a little bit like Christopher. Why? Uh, why so upset now, and maybe he's just mad. He doesn't have a deal like a Netflix deal. We'll know once we're really other than, uh, occasional movie here. They're like Milan and, um, a couple movies this, you know, Wonder woman..
NFL Insider Dan Graziano Breaks Down Week 11
"Dan graziano it is eleven fifty eight. Pm eastern so. Thank you very much man for staying up late behind. After that game. I go right to sleep. That was exciting. Dan graziano is an espn nfl insider. And he will get to sleep soon. We promise fired for game like that. Yeah me too i mean. Let's get into this right off the top here the chiefs. Just beat the raiders. Thirty five to thirty one. They beat the team who is beating kansas city. This season dan back in week. Five about a million years ago. So were you watching for in this rematch tonight. Well to see if they can do it again right. I mean that sounds simple. But like i didn't think their victory over kansas city was a fluke because it seemed like they had kind of a formula that they went out and they stuck to. They didn't win but a certainly could have. And i think that's that's significant because they know that's the team that is in their way in their division. Obviously they're on top of the conference in the league as super bowl champion. So you see the raiders. Draft a running back in the first round last year. That can help them. Control the clock and keep mahomes on the sideline like they did in the first game. They played they draft the speedy wide receiver this year in the first round. That can stress their quarterbacks. I mean they're thinking about the chiefs all the time. They're certainly not on that level at this point as the records indicate but they've constructed a team that can play in a way that threatens the chiefs and it might be able to beat them. So they're not as different as you might inclined to think yet and i have to admit like the difference between pat mahomes and derek carr felt smaller than i ever realized it would tonight. What did you see from these two quarterbacks total commanded of the offense which has not always been him. And certainly since gruden's been there. We've seen a lot more ups and downs. Where he looked like he was a little bit. Lost a little bit uncertain But this is years three with gruden and when gruden got there he talked about competent car up and making sure that car believed he was the guy. So that when you know. When ben came together around him he would be the guy that was in total control of things. And and it seems to be coming to fruition. What he's got. He's got people to throw to nelson agholor like out of nowhere as having a career renaissance in las vegas. He's got two very running back. Got a great offensive line. And i think you know he's playing with a lot of confidence as you would expect him to give all those things now. I think he's taken a big job this year in terms of where. He ranks in terms of the quarterbacks. We feel confident about what we watched the did feel like gruden kinda new like no. It's sunday night football. Let's give the people something that they'll enjoy. What did you most enjoy from. Hearing those play called why. I our love to know what the purple walrus was and i mean i think there are some vegas ones like he dropped. The sammy davis in there at one point and then and then it sounded like they've been paying very close attention to the nba off-season because there are a number of james harden and those who among nfl coaches knows how to produce primetime football. Better than jon gruden right. I mean he did it for for a decade or so for us in terms of operating in that sphere. So maybe i don't know maybe maybe he feels like a showman or maybe they're just having a lot of fun in their in their offensive meetings. They sound like all. The time does not all watching every week but was it so as showmanship goes that lasts. Drive man lake travis. Kelsey had some great moments in this game but that catch at the end mahomes calling him the best tight end in the league game. What did you see from travis kelsey tonight yeah domination. This is this. is you talk about reliability. I mean the the quarterback knows he's going to be where he's supposed to be. He knows he's almost certainly going to be open. He know he's going to catch the ball like it's total complete confidence in a guy in a key spot third down. A guy had throw to the end zone in the final minute. I mean he is the best tight end in the league. I don't think it's even close especially when you know. George kittle is on the shelf right now in the second best tight end. The league is probably the guy that was on hiller sidelines tonight. So there's there's no doubt that he in homes are in sync in a way that very few combinations like that are

Dave is actually the first artist to be signed on that ladder label which was launched by Frank? Sinatra. Davis was nominated for record of the year for the song. What kind of fool limb? I, which reached the top twenty of the billboard pop charts and Davis live stage work continued to earn him honors as seen with his Tony nominated performance in nineteen sixty four's golden boy. In nineteen, sixty, six, he had his own short lived variety show the Sammy Davis junior show I. Feel like that was like a right of passage in the sixties like every body had to have their own variety show. Sonny and Cher and the smothers brothers and Carol Burnett. Oh my gosh who else Mary Tyler Moore or is that? Tyler. Moore have our own. But Yeah I just feel like at some point every performer had their own variety show and then years later he actually played host again to a syndicated talk show called Sammy Company from nineteen seventy, five to nineteen, seventy, seven in nineteen, Sixty, eight, Davis started dating Advice Gore a dancer in golden boy and they were married on May Eleventh Nineteen Seventy by somebody who is a familiar name to you that would be the Reverend Jesse Jackson? This would be his final marriage. He had another hit single in nineteen, sixty eight with I gotta be me class which peaked at number eleven and became a signature tune. But increasingly, Sammy's reprise recordings followed the downward trajectory of his career and his life at large catching up with these social upheaval of swinging London Sammy started to abuse Booze Drugs and started wearing outrageous fashions divorcing his wife May bread and began unintentionally cultivating an image as an aging hipster. In the recording studio, he attempted a more are and be material style with little success. And started lifting from the blood sweat and tears songbook. So heading back to nineteen sixty eight, we're going to listen to one of my favorite songs.

"It also wasn't a typical when Sammy from the Chichi that. his uncle and his father as a teenager in the early forties was one of the members the first RATPAC to perform in Palm Springs, he had to stay in a little room above the stage constructed specifically for black, Americans and their money was no good in hotels like we really haven't we. We touched on it when he was a soldier and we'll get into a little bit more but the fact is that racism. Up until I think maybe the seventy s and early eighties, you couldn't get performers like African American performers will not stay in hotels that they were performing at. It just didn't happen. They had this thing called the green book, which was a a book that told you where it was safer African Americans eat where they could sleep places that were friendly to them, and that was to keep them safe. And next year, we're doing a little bit of retooling on the actual format of rock and roll heaven. You'll see that when we when we talk about it, we're GONNA be releasing very special episode. But. We're going to be bringing back the opening acts and we will be talking about the Green Book. So we also touch upon us and our Jim Crow episode as well and as we go on I, think you'll see Sami taking a very. You know very active stance in the civil rights movement Oh. Yeah. We're we're actually get into that in just a bit. This was as reality he was A. Black Entertainer in a whitewash world a man who owed most of his career to Frank Sinatra and I hate that idea of the white savior, which is how it's portrayed in films. Basically, you know the blindside is one of the big ones but he was a more versatile performer and someone who came to be one of the most popular mainstream detainers in the world after starting his career performing in black face. And there are two sides to every coin and Sami actually lived somewhere on the edges I. Think Sami had seen through frank. Sinatra's is white nightclub living and how exuberant and how stylish and how. It was said, we'll hey, good an author who penned what is considered to be the preeminent biography on Sami called in black and white he had seen that he was eighteen or nineteen years old and he would go into is it the Chitlins circuit and I? Think we cover that with Nina Simone a little bit the mostly black clubs in rundown parts of town that really didn't drive him. It was almost like if you showed them Paris head, you get them to go back to the farm from the beginning Sinatra stood up for Sammy and sometime in the late forties frank appeared in a theater in. New York during the lull of his career and he goes to Harlem to see the will mess and trio and was blown away by Sammy's talent and after the show he heads backstage to pay his respects and ask Sammy to come see him perform about a week passes. No Sammy. So Sinatra goes back to Harlem to see the show again and says something to the effect of an angry with you I came to see you twice and you never came to see me Sammy speaking to the man that he adored more than anything else in the world said Frank I did they wouldn't let me in The theater, so they wouldn't allow him to come see. Frank like that to me is Baloney Franklin storms back to the theater tears up his contract and left. Like. That is awesome. This was not Sinatra at his peak fame he actually needed that gig. So so tearing that contract up was a huge step to really endearing himself to say me. Me Mental. OUGHTA I mean they were like brothers. Yeah Sammy. The boy with scrapbook talked about that a lot over the years as Siemian Sinatra's relationship grew. So to same his career Sinatra selected the Will Messenger you'd open for him at the prestigious Capitol Theatre in nineteen forty seven to which Sami incredulously responded why me When Sammy was denied entry into the Cabana Sinatra made he got in the next time when he was not allowed to stay in the Las Vegas Hotel where they were performing. Sinatra. used his clout to enable. Sammy. To break the color line in. Las. Vegas and Mervyn our last episode, the the real owners of the couple of Cabana and. The casinos. Yeah. Yeah. Their word is there bond that's all I'm GONNA say. For Sammy being friends with Sinatra and the rat pack wasn't just a social benefit. It was an entry point into Hollywood the whitewash world of stardom that eluded so many talented African American entertainers to enter that world meant leaving part of his past behind he did find much to Myron the white world because that's where he wanted to go a he wanted to be at the very top I think Sammy was very smart smarter than a lot of people gave him credit for hey, good said. He knew the top agents were he knew who the top stars were and there wasn't a black equivalent to some the white movers and shakers that Sami leaned into and he realized that. With the rat pack Sammy's roles continued to grow and he appeared in more movies, more television shows recording his own album and with masten and his father aging the bill on the marquee turned from the will mess trio to simply Sammy nice he was a bona fide black star in a country who had little room for tolerance at the time. If he had been in this era, you probably would have received. I. Don't know how many. Kademi. Awards emmys. Tony's said beverly Johnston pumps ringer resident. And the first. African. American model on the cover of Vogue, he would have done all. If he was a talent of today, he was an unbelievable talent and using about somebody like. Him would be like a chance, the rapper almost we got yeah or like common is also one You have something like Lin Manuel Miranda but you think about somebody that would be like Sammy, Davis because you have childish Gambino Donald Glover who's pretty close actually yeah he's really you have common who is a musician you had you've got these these talents like that. That's that would be I guess something along the lines of. Sammy Davis Junior contemporaries. Equivalent but they still lack the one-two-three punch that's Ami add. Glover's talent as he is you know and and all these guys were talking about I just feel like Sami like you said could have owned Broadway go oh yeah you could have done at all. Yeah. He was. You know what? Though he was born in the perfect time I was just born in the wrong day. I should have been born in like nineteen. Forty four like leads. It's about the same year dad was born. Way, it could have gone to woodstock and the Monterey pop fest and but been around for the rat pack, but like still been right. Cute. By the time they rolled her out because I only would have been like twenty eight so I would have still been adorable. Not, like. I am now. On. On stage, the rat pack was notorious for having each other. We talked about that a few minutes ago. That extended into their social time to they were merciless with their pranks and jokes, and the brunt of those were directed at Sammy Davis were based on his skin color. But again like it was at boys club where they could rip him about stuff. But if you did it, they're beheld a pay. Sinatra's nickname for Samuel smokey and he would do things like jokingly asks Sammy to Pan and clean up the cigarette ashes since they wouldn't show up on his skin. Frank Frank Frank Frank the jokes appeared in films to the well known one is oceans. Eleven is about a group of Crooks trying to steal from three big vegas. Casinos semi plays a garbage man and he has arguably the biggest role in the highest but also deals with jokes like the one near the end of the movie where the group is putting shoeshine on their faces as skies while Sammy giggles and says, I knew this color would come in Handy one day the responses had he get the stuff off?.

"See that's more of the Sammy I know. That I'm familiar with yeah and he has such a beautiful rich melodic tone to his voice like there's just something. So soothing about him. Yeah. I mean it's great when he puts on the impressions and the voices because it's entertaining but he's just got it. It sounds so effortless. You know yeah and you know what else is effortless US taking a small break to pay a couple bills with some sponsors. Europe? And we are back. So. We just hop out of nineteen fifty five we're going to flash forward to nine, hundred, fifty seven. When Sammy Davis got involved with Kim Novak. There's lot of that goes on here. Lots of go on. So we're in the fall of nineteen, fifty, seven and Kim Novak has just finished Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo. Hang on. Okay. So we're GONNA flush wards nineteen fifty seven. Sammy was involved with actress, Kim Novak. And this was in the fall of nineteen, fifty seven and Kim had just finished filming Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo. which is a great film. Film. When she met up with friends edge. Chicago's then. Hottest. NIGHTCLUB SHAPE HELI Sounds expensive our. Perry. Tryst. Peres. Whatever. She sat at a table near the stage in Sammy Davis singing on that stage and focuses attention on her. When the show was over, he confided to his friends Janet gently and Tony Curtis that he wished to meet Novak just sprinkling in some name dropping their. Courtesy Davis that he would take care of it, telling him to attend after party that Curtis was hosting at his house. Curtis then approached her and invited her over. I would've killed to be just in the fifty Senator Tony. Curtis' your wing man that's something real situation. Yeah. WHO's your wingmen? Doug Doug's wing man can I can. I can. I. Can't say anything look look where it got me Yeah. You don't regret that every day. Moving on. People think we're cute I mean most people wrong. But most people say cute the illusion continues at the Party Davison. No backward inseparable spending the entire evening together salaciousness. It was electric however, they weren't the only ones to notice this intense connection. It's believed the fellow guest at. Curtis's party called a popular gossip column to inform them of no back and Davis's chemistry. It's pretty much like now minus the twitter instagram it's the same stuff oh. Yeah. It was less accessible back then but it was actually worse I. Think. Because this could actually get you killed as we will soon see, won't we or blacklisted or Black Ball? There were definitely really bad repercussions for some of this stuff for the next day in a small section of Gaza call and appeared which top female Cayenne is seriously dating. What big name Entertainer St. The news spreads gossip usually does and the night that Davis, in Novak were together, the party would be the last time that is by the public. Worried about the impact of the rumor David Novak to apologize for any stress or professional retaliation. Their brief meeting caller Novak didn't mind at all. In fact, Davis's Autobiography Sammy. She respond by saying the studio doesn't own me and she asked him over for dinner. The small bit of gossip really struck a chord with a notoriously loathed Columbia pictures studio boss Harry. Con Con who felt like he invested enormous time and money into Novak's career completely took control over her or at least he tried to. And I'm sort of the way the studio system was wasn't it? Like these places owned you if you sign that contract Oh yeah they would they had fixers which was good if you messed up but then they also arranged marriages and hand you know some of them had mob ties excetera and so. Yeah I mean it was a dirty business back then it might be dirty now I don't know I'm not. I'm not important enough to know that but you know back then it was. A great podcast. If you're interested called, you must remember this and it's by a woman named Cream Longworth who is married to Ryan Johnson I only say that because not that her marriage defines her but she does have a little bit of an inside track I feel on the history of what she also did a book called Hollywood frame by frame, which was an incredible book. But she delves into this and there's another podcast called the dark side of which actually highlights Judy Garland's. Youth. So if you're really interested in kind of like that salacious part of Hollywood, there are some great podcasts out there that you can check out and you should. So at the time, Novak was actually Hollywood's number one draw at the box office she was one of the hottest female actresses thanks to con-. Since discovering her and creating image became no for he regarded Novak as his property which saw. When he caught wind of Novak in Davis Fling, he forbade her from seeing him with no compromise by all accounts anyone working in Hollywood feared con in new the damage that he was actually capable of causing, which is so scary. Not only had con admired. Italy's Prime Minister Benito Mussolini, which is probably not the person you WANNA look up to. Again. But he was reportedly known to have close ties with the Chicago mob Johnny Selley to be specific resell. He's connected. You encounter I believe I think we get to that he was an influential model mobster orchestrated the mobs dominion within Hollywood and Las Vegas supposedly even purchasing matching Ruby friendship rings for him in Con-. Yeah and although he demanded that Novak in his relationship, she didn't even arranged bodyguards wait in front of home to ensure that he wouldn't show up awhile. Yeah. So I mean. This guy's got mobbed is he's got money. He's got Hollywood. He's Columbia was huge back. Then think about this way that he held over her how scary is that? Basically like you can't love this person they're controlled every aspect of your life basically yeah. That's I hate that I hate I would hate that thought through the remainder of nineteen, fifty, seven, the couple continue to hide. Their relationship. Author Silver Junior was one of Davis's best friends and he was the only person actually see the relationship between Novak and Davis and so con- actually called the racketeer John Celine who was told to inform Davis that he must stop seeing Novak to try to scare Davis reselling head him kidnapped for a few hours kidnapped for a few hours just like a test run ike. Davis was written with the loss of the other I or broken leg if he didn't marry a black woman within two days. Davis out the protection of the Chicago. Monster San the Chicago Mobster Sanjin Khanna who said he could protect him in Chicago and Los, Vegas but not in California. So that answers your question Kirk those weren't technically connected. In silver's autobiography, Sammy, Davis, junior and me and my shadow. He recalls that many times he drove Davidson Novak to a private Malibu Beach House, which he rented just to the couple could have some privacy. According to sober, he would for Davis to the Beach House and Davis would cover himself a blankets or hide on the floor of the car of aiding any possibility of being exposed later that year in December, Novak prudish cargo to be with her family for the Holidays Davis stayed in. Las. Vegas where he was scheduled to perform at the Sands Hotel, which was run by he end his closest friend Frank Sinatra. Even. Though Frank didn't approve Davis Founder Placement for a scheduled performance and hopped on the next flight to Chicago.

He said in a book about his life he had had the bad luck of being drafted into the first integrated infantry and it was murder treated. Him horrendously said author Bert Boyer in American Masters? Sammy Davis. Jr. Junior's gotta be me. During basic training in Wyoming he was beaten kicked spat upon by bigoted whites in hysterics. Describing those days in his bestselling nineteen, sixty, five biography. Davis his knuckles were covered with scabs fighting racist during his first three months in the army. Perhaps the ugliest incident occurred when a group of whites of white enlistees decided to teach him a lesson for being too familiar with a white female officer. Davis said they lured him into a remote spot on the base where they beat him in paint racial slurs on his chest and forehead. They forced him to tap danced and smeared more white paint over his body only to remove spot demonstrate beneath the paint that he was still just as quote blackened ugly as ever. The pain of that incident motivated him to pump even more energy into his performance. At camp shows he felt that his sheer talent could reach the. And neutralize them force them to recognize him as a person. He got jumped. Talk other GI's urinated on him. That's just Cheeses is. Disgusting. I mean this is a case where. I know this is a very prominent thing. Now, where you know with the the black lives matter movement of. The black community contributing to the US in sort of not getting any reciprocity now and this is a time when We're facing Hitler. We are facing Hitler come on. You're all they were all Americans. They were all Americans fighting a commonality in the second world. War had to know the Harlem L. fighters they came out of the Second World War you know it's like come on guys. You know what my stance on racism is and these people disgust me. Ultimate point is that they were standing up to the ultimate form of racism and yet that was still happening within the ranks. Later on his life on the Arsenio Hall. Show. Davis recounted the other is painted him white and poured beer and urine on him, and he said that they needed to say, Hey, man get that you in word now stop him I tried physically I got my nose broken three times. That's from your own people Jesus separately on the Dick Cavallo. He told the story of the time where he defended himself in the guy said where I come from inwards don't go in front of white people I turn and hit him kept filled with ground his mouth was believing and he looked up and said, well, you beat me but you still in inward and his conclusion was even if you win, you don't win. Later on he becomes a massive voice. So hold on. We're GONNA get some good stuff. So his experiences in the army had profound influence on his life in the American culture critic. Jerrell early theorize Davis thought by becoming a success he would be able to transcend all those humiliations they're gonNa love him as an entertainer no matter how much they hated him as a black after the war Davis resumed his showbiz career and he continued to perform with will masson as the star of the act also struck out on his own singing in nightclubs and recording records, and this was just after the Second World War.

I'm in person but you know, the Boston Pride is doing anything online or hosting any virtual races because I know the Ray Bourque Foundation my other co-hosts and I am alone read off we both took part in the social distance Dash who are working on possibly putting together in the future to give back yourself and WHL kind of has like the pride has kind of everything on hold right now, but I think that in the season they do a lot of charity events and I just like Community teams and reaching out for them, but I guess in the future like something dead. I don't know. mean, I'm really an advocate for mental health. So I think I'll probably get involved with that and you guys in the loop if there is anything that I am passionate about that I definitely want to get involved in maybe coaching. I've been approached by a few people to start a camp. So that's been on my mind maybe later in the summer but the rinks are currently closed right now so long and we I don't really know about ice time. So that's something I'm definitely interested, but I don't know. I don't know what the future kind of holds. I guess. That's true. I mean with everything going on with everything is kind of on hold but I do like that you potentially are going to look into getting involved or charity getting into mentoring getting into coaching you guys right now, you're listening to Sammy Davis again. I'm from the Boston area grew up right in Pembroke ice hockey female athlete Superstar believe she was actually a co-captain of The Bu Terriers. I don't think you mentioned that but I'm mentioning it now she is going to suck. Play with the Boston Pride. You guys don't know who the Boston Pride are. Make sure you look them up. They are a professional women's ice hockey team. We are so excited to check out some of their games this season guys Beat Boston Pride. And before we wrap up. Do you know what I'd like to have a little bit of fun with our guests. I know we talked all about your background and sports and college and doctorate but we want to get some fun great awesome little tidbits that you probably don't really talk about that often in interviews. If you have like a like funny story that you want to tell us or something interesting that it's happened in a locker room. Now is the time you want to hear you showcase your personality a little bit too. I love to go the beach and stuff when I have time and I love to sit by the pool like sit in the sun. That's just it makes me happy and I was just he's probably going to kill me, but I was.

"Yeah, so I got injured like my sophomore year and I hurt my hand and I went to go see like wage and therapist who was an OT and I don't know just kind of fell in love with it and she worked with some Boston athletes like the Bruins and Celtics and the Patriots. She like made braces and stuff off or their gloves and like no way that's so cool. And then I looked into it more and then I started doing kind of inter internships like all over I guess like mass and like I also went over to South Africa to do on and I don't know. just I just really fell in love with it and I just think that health profession and like a helping like promotion was just kind of like it was just me Emily and physically it's like a perfect fit and I think that like mental health is so important and that's oties address that so that's kind of what gravitated meet or dead. That profession I think that's a great choice, especially having something that you can call back on after your great time obviously playing professional sports. And then you're still going to obviously be giving back to the community with your degree. So very shortly guys again, you all know that with the Boston's we love talking to professional athlete Sports entertainers that have a great background that are playing professional sport that chase their dreams. Not only do they perform on the ice a lot of them. If not all of them actually perform off the ice by giving back whether they go visit hospitals for years or donate Chromebooks, like the recording twins just recently did are like Bob Kraft who recently donated a ton of masks and whatnot during the covin crisis. You always see people giving back whether they're marching and spreading their voices like we talked about earlier in this episode want to switch on over and here's what about Sammy Davis and how she gives back to the community for me. I know that you are far off. Highly highly involved with different types of volunteering know that you volunteer locally with your team. And you also went to so Africa to work for a non-profit. So can you talk to us about that whole situation with the nonprofit? Yeah. I think I try and get I mean life is so crazy. And I guess that's no excuse but I really do try and get involved with them like right now doing zooms and stuff and just kind of get involved with like Mass hockey and like my old club team Breakers and just kind of stay involved with like kids in the community and if they need somebody to talk like I'm here.

"Over with the Boston Pride wanted to switch out over and ask you some more questions regarding the Boston Pride. So again, we've already mentioned the fact that you were the number one overall draft pick which itself is a great feat. Obviously you excelled in school as well, which means obviously lightly touched upon would let's talk a little bit about the Boston Pride and I know that you thought were selected again number one The Pride, I believe don't know it was this season or last season, you can correct me if I'm wrong The Pride went twenty-three and one that's a record of all record dropping out with team that has a record like that. You must be super excited and on top of that it looks like somebody that was involved with the Vu hockey operations, really really wanted you off Boston Pride this person again, I don't want to butcher their last name, but I believe it's pilch we knew what we wanted and we had to get their basically this person works with the view of hockey operations. I believe they are are part of the Boston Pride organization and they really wanted Sammy Davis on their team. So Sammy, let me ask you what does it feel like to be a part of team that has such a great record. And what are your thoughts on having somebody so excited to have you be a part of their organization? Yeah. I mean, it's so great to kind of like when I mean, I guess when was choosing a college was the same way you want to be you want be wanted and you want to be valued and I think that got that out of the pride and I saw how much they wanted me and they they definitely like compromised and they saw my goals and they knew like what was important to me like in life and that was really what gave me towards the pride and the coaching staff and just the the staff in general. They've just been so great and it's it's like a family feel there and I think that it's going to be great have some teammates that song. To play with on the team too. So I'm excited to play with them and be close to home and have my family watched me and my friends watch me and another year hockey. I think I just I'm excited about that. We are very excited as well. We're hoping to go to some games because again, Deanna and I are big ice hockey fans. We love again that you are from the Boston area..

David Geffen then they could be anybody that's true the blind item so many of the people fired from Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter there are a lot of layoffs at the trade publications they wanted more aggressive coverage of baddie people and remember we just talked about the story last week we talked about chief editorial guy and I can't member's name off the top of my head even though hi we talked about story last week anyway here we keep he was the one that was also providing coverage about Jennifer Lopez that the higher ups were like we don't like this negative coverage of Jennifer Lopez and it wasn't even negative coverage right exactly so you can fill in the blank for any disgrace director because unfortunately there are quite a few and they're also quite a few moguls perhaps who have bad behavior anyway through those publications I would say like it seems like a lot we're learning a lot of moguls have bad behavior yeah because they're untouchable absolute power corrupts absolutely nineteen.
Robbie Robertson: Leader of The Band and Architect of Shangri La
"Here's Rick Rubin Malcolm Glad Well Bruce Adam from Shangrila speaking with the studios architect Robbie Robertson. We had a fantastic take the other day a year. And I'm when I was telling the stories of Shangri la you know stories he envisioned this place and built it and it was unbelievable and it was mine it it you know the other guys in the band thought this was a good. Hi Dear but from big pink to. Sammy Davis Junior's house to the worcester. We made these records in not not in studios in other places where there was an atmosphere and it could be our atmosphere and ours. Sounds you know now and every thing was not on somebody else's will way of doing of somebody else's wave likes. You know you would go into the studio Rodeo. And there'd be these used to be these union guys they'd be like Oh looks like it's lunchtime or like what are you talking about lunchtime. We're we're you know we're about to do something something and and they'd be an IV. Like I I don't know this should be louder than don't touch that you know. Yeah so I don't want that I. Ah I don't WanNa do that so I said what we're going to do is we're going to make these clubhouse these workshop these studios does things that is our world and arm music are sound and whether it was true or not. I believed that that it gave it a character and a saying which it did for better or worse. What's what's interesting about? That too. Is that now. It's become more the norm. Yeah Ah that that said when you did it technologically. It was much more difficult to do like when you did it. You needed big studio equipment like today. People people can do it on their laptops so they can. It's easier to make that jump but when you did it. The infrastructure involved was not easy to pull off. It was unheard of except for Les. Paul Les Paul said. I'm going to build studio at my house and I'm GonNa Build an Echo Chamber into the side of this hill right. And he was going to do all of these things. I had an argument demint the other day with Van Morrison about being able to do this kind of thing and because he was saying I only liked the play live just with my band and I go in and we sing and they play this song and we can capture a moment. We've all done that. I know it really well. I played Ricksen music the other day. That was all like first or second takes in it. Was You know songs you've heard. Yeah sounds you've heard a lot so so anyway so van saying it's gotta be live and it's got to be governed by and that's the way it used to be in a way of being I said what about less paw. Aw He overdubbed. He made things he played on top of himself. He doubled tracked. Things invented it so so van says I know but he was magic you recorded at. Sammy Davis Junior House. Yes we made the band album. The brown album And we rented. Sammy Davis Junior House in the Hollywood sunset is at plaza in the Hollywood hills. And we all stayed in the House for the family and we turn the pool house where he used to have have his. Party's with Frank Sinatra the rat back and all these people we turn that Pool House into his studio and the record company Penny thought. This was the worst idea they ever heard. I thought this was ridiculous. He said Dr Fifteen minutes. We have the best studio in the world here. Franks not for records year right all of this stuff and I was like no no no. This is a different thing and finally finally they were like okay. Okay I guess I don't know what you're doing and it's probably going to be bad but serious June didn't show up in another another. Sammy Davis Junior. He owned he still owned the House. He didn't live there so the magic him like he lived there. Stepping in on one of your according to what the House was built lower. You go into the the bathroom in the sink was down here and it was. Everything was built to his specifications you know and and I it seemed like this is great. This is great. Sammy's world's amazing. And so we recorded the album there and then we mix it or we're going to mix the record and there's this guy in New York. Toni Mae was his name and he had mixed the is the brothers. It's your thing. Do what you WanNa they do. So it was such a great sounding record we said wow. Let's see we can get Tony Maiden Mick says and he worked with Phil Ramone and all these people are which so anyway comes in and he puts up the tapes and everything and he says These tapes are awful. I'm going to have to do a lot of work. Arcand this and I thought I don't know if I like that. So anyway. He did a mix. There was not what I wanted at all. It's not the way I heard it all so anyway we're like thanks. Tony See You know and on which songs with these these were on the band album was the night they drove old. DIXIE DOWN UP ON CRIPPLE CREEK Whispering Pines on was wrong with his mixes his mixes were a trying to make this slick and bright and end and there was a witness to it. There was a muddiness to it that that suited the music it was earthy and I I want it that right. But he didn't get the joke so that was okay so I went and mixed the album with guy another another guy at the at the the old Jerry Ragavan said factory in New York this guy of mixed the album we mixed at the guys in the band. We were all in their the in God at the way that that I wanted so we get it and then it's like okay. The guy the mastering in guy his name is Bob Ludwig. You GotTa get him to master your record. So we take the record to Bob. Ludwig and and He puts you know he puts on the tape the mixes and everything and he says Oh boy is like Toni. May He's like I don't know I'm GONNA try see if I can fix this or save this and I'm like That's really depressing. So I go on I tell the other guys I said. I don't know we might have done this all wrong. Everybody's saying it's it's terrible and that you know so the net. I don't know a couple of days later. Bob Ludwig calls me and he says I am such an an idiot. I am such a fool. I didn't get it I so get it. This is maybe be the most interesting record I've ever heard. He said I'm so sorry. And he told me Bob Ludwig he said I made the same mistake when sly stone brought me. There's a riot going on. I thought that that was a big mistake. Sue Two and he said and then I realized it you know I had to accept it the way that I accepted your record and So I was like 'cause I thought he was right hit on and if he had a state with that I don't know what would have happened. So he you you know he mastered at hardly did anything to it in in the mastering and it was just one of those things it was a homemade saying it did have that character to it and that was part of its

Let's just jump in and hear from oh, I'm a long time fan, reader of obituaries and, you know, any good OBE. It writer will tell you that a good old. But it's really about the life of I am of a person rather than the death of a person on CBS Sunday morning. I've always loved profiling people. And it occurred to me that there were a lot of great people from the pass. It didn't get a proper sendoff and some that didn't get an e send-off at all. And so that this would would be the, the right vehicle. I guess as cold award is at is to, to, to profile the subjects that are interesting to me, you know, and, and like I said, there's a lot to choose from beyond von meter in TV brothers. You're doing Sammy Davis in who else? Meander falls, because when they died out, forty thousand years ago, there was no open at least not one that we could find now there might be a stone tablet, somewhere in the Levant where they were given you know, sort of a proper sendoff, but I don't I don't think so we couldn't find anything in our own search in the archives are in Lexis Nexis, which I think people still use. So this was this was important for us to do next season. This is something that I've always been interested in the black congressman of reconstruction, which I know sounds like a funk band, but it's this period right after the civil war when there are a number of African American men most of whom had been slaves, who end up serving in the United States Congress. So it's those little pockets that are, that are interesting to me as well as well as people like Audrey Hepburn Sammy Davis junior, who we hopefully all. Love and remember. But our I think are due, for sort of a new a reevaluation and you're still doing Sunday morning at the same time. Absolutely. I have a lot of stories in the works. They're going off tomorrow to go profile Angie Dickinson, which I'm really excited about. So I was watching old policewoman episodes last night, and I highly recommend getting your hands on a policewoman DVD. Yes, they still sell those DVD's. That is an listening to the DVD commentary. It is, you know, I don't listen to enough DVD commentaries in his hilarious listening to her reminisce about the show what, what will be up. So it'd be next week the third one, the one that's releasing this Thursday is forgotten forerunners, which may be on ongoing thing. I do the years have collected names of people who I call sort of the pioneers before the pioneers. So there's a woman named Elizabeth Jennings. An African American woman who almost exactly. Hundred years before Rosa Parks. Rosa Parks was was was was asked to sat down on that on that boss, excuse me. Among Gumri, Alabama, Elizabeth Jennings in New York was kicked off of a streetcar. And she ended up suing the railroad company that owned that streetcar. And she won and this is before the civil war, and led to the integration of New York's transportation system. And I mean it's a remarkable achievement and it's almost equally remarkable that we don't know her name. So this episode this Thursday, is about her about the African American man who played major league baseball, what passes the major leagues sixty four years before Jackie Robinson antibody woman who was the highest paid director in Hollywood during the silent era. So these are all names that I'm pretty sure you don't know. And but so it's this episode is our first where. Featuring people that you probably never heard of.

The roller skating. No. This was different episode. Yes. Sammy Davis junior gets kidnapped. Right. Ed Begley in the roll ups. But it's not Sammy Davis it Sammy Davis as Herbert. Supermarket owner, and they had those wonderful terrible Patty Duke split screens. You have to get him back. Just to talk about that what we're going to stop. And we're going to do. We'll do we'll do directors and writers on a mini episode. Right. What do you think of? That sounds good. Yeah. We'll make people pay for Stitcher to hear it. One of the people who pays for it. It's worth it. It's real over eight buddy might be up to ten now mart. Alec. It's worth it though. Do we'll do real quickly. We'll do we'll do writers. We'll do writers and directors because I don't want to rush through them within the last in the last ten minutes of this sounds good. So we'll we'll find some music to play at the end of this. That's appropriate. Don't know what will pick will surprise you guys. But that's a lot of people that really is. And that's that's that's a lot of loss. But as I said, we're very proud. But guys thank you for doing for doing the show because really that you know, we make jokes. But that's why I wore the pin because these people in their stories and their work, it matters and all of the stuff coming out. Now there is nothing now without everything that came before. So that's really what I why I wore was trying to present. What you guys do because highly special. I always sure. Member I read in some magazine was when files was the biggest show on the air and some writer wrote X files is so much better than twilight zone twilight zone pales in comparison. And the two is credit. The creator of X filed said, you know, I I'm flattered by that. But without twilight zone, they wouldn't be an X file. So it's the same way. There wouldn't be the scene in the favorite with the orange wedges. Fuck you, Emma stone. I saw it. And by the way, it's a wonderful movie. She's in that scene. I know someone has to pay for it. Mike. That's very very sweet of you to say. And we appreciate it. Why we keep doing it? And I hope people enjoyed in memoriam twenty eighteen we're going to do a mini episode.

More Rafa from CBS Sunday morning has a great new podcast mo- Bidu Aries, and we've got him here on talking tech to tell you all about it. I'm Jefferson Graham, let's just jump in and hear from oh, I'm a long time fan reader of of the chew Aries. And you know, any good OBE, it writer will tell you that a good. Oh, but it's really about the life of person of person rather than the death of a person on CBS Sunday morning. I've always loved profiling people, and it occurred to me that there were a lot of great people from the pass it didn't get a proper sendoff and some that didn't get an e sendoff at all. And so that this would would be the the right vehicle. I guess as cold award is at is to to to profile the subjects that are interesting to me, you know, and and like I said there's a lot to choose from beyond von meter in TV brothers. You're doing Sammy Davis in who else? Else meander falls because when they died out forty thousand years ago, there was no opet at least not one that we could find now there might be a stone tablet somewhere in the Levant where they were given you know, sort of a proper sendoff, but I don't I don't think so we couldn't find anything in our own search in the CBS archives are in Lexis Nexis, which I think people still use. So this was this was important for us to do next season. This is something that I've always been interested in. The black congressman of reconstruction, which I know sounds like a funk band, but it's his period right after the civil war when there are a number of African American men, most of whom had been slaves who end up serving in the United States Congress. So it's those little pockets that are that are interesting to me as well as well as people like Audrey Hepburn Sammy Davis junior who we hopefully all love and remember. But are I think are due for sort of a new a reevaluation in you're still doing Sunday morning at the same time? Absolutely. I have a lot of stories in the works. They're going off tomorrow to go profile Angie Dickinson, which I'm really excited about. So I was watching old policewoman episodes last night. And I highly recommend getting your hands on a policewoman DVD. Yes, they still sell those DVD's that is an listening to the DVD commentary. It is I don't listen to enough DVD commentaries in his hilarious listening to her. Reminisce about the show. What what will the episode be next week the third one the one that's releasing this Thursday is forgotten forerunners which may be on ongoing thing. I do the years have collected names of people who I call sort of the pioneers before the pioneers. So there's a woman named Elizabeth Jennings. An African American woman who almost exactly a hundred years before Rosa Parks. Rosa Parks was was was was asked to the sat down on that on that boss, excuse me, among Gumri, Alabama, Elizabeth Jennings in New York was kicked off of a streetcar. And she ended up suing the railroad company that owned that streetcar and she won and this is before the civil war, and it led to the integration of New York's transportation system, and I mean, it's a remarkable achievement. And it's almost equally remarkable that we don't know her name. So this the episode this Thursday is about her about the African American man who played major league baseball. What passes the major leagues sixty four years before Jackie Robinson, antibody woman who was the highest paid director in Hollywood during the silent era. So these are all names that I'm pretty sure you don't know. And but it's it this episode is our first where we're featuring people. The you probably never heard of.

Bobby Seale, Bill Ayers & Bernardine Dohrn on Police Repression, Fred Hampton Murder & Prison Strike
"Sir. This is democracy. Now democracy now or the warrant piece report. I'm Amy Goodman with one gun solace with part two of today's edition of fifty years ago that right fifty years ago this week, the nineteen sixty eight democratic national convention in Chicago became a national spectacle as a major political event turned into chaos that culminated with a police riot, much of it unfolding on live national television. While Hubert Humphrey was nominated as the democratic candidate in nineteen sixty eight inside despite the fact he didn't run in any primaries outside was where the news was where police were clubbing teargassing thousands of protesters. For more. We continue our interviews with Bobby Seale founding chairman, Black Panther party was in the protests at the beginning in Chicago. Bill Ayers was arrested on August twenty seven fifty years ago and Bernardine Dohrn both Bernardine and Bill longtime activists for peace and racial Justice, former SDS that students for a democratic society and whether underground members. I mean, he Goodman with Juan Gonzalez one? Yes. Yes. With Bobby Seale again to follow up a Bobby on the conversation. We were having that the end of our previous segment when you were talking about how once Richard Nixon was elected president, he ordered. His aides to begin immediate eradication of the Black Panther party. One of the interesting things that most people are not aware of is that years later report came out in the New York Times that the f. b. i. had conducted a CPR secret poll among black Americans and found that more than twenty five percent of African Americans were supporters of the Black Panther party felt that the Black Panther party was fighting. Their interest is significant portion of the America of the African American population of this country was supportive of of your revolutionary organization. And yet as you were saying Nixon immediately ordered that you be crushed, could you talk about what happened in that first few years of the Nixon administration to the panther party. Exactly the year of nineteen sixty nine is the year. Now, remember I said he had a meeting with j. Edgar Hoover and Jade ago who were in the December the first week of December stated nationally on television that we were threat to the internal, the blackout, the party is a threat to the internal security of America. Come come. What was February seventeenth seventeenth. John a buddy Carter and John Huggins will murdered at UCLA. They were the leaders of the black path to party and loss Angeles California now. But she Carter really had gotten out of his gang group. 'cause he, he ran a three thousand member gang and he created a political organization call wretched of the earth delay to become and he later became rub. They headed up to southern California chapter the black part in the Los Angeles community. Eric, the what I'm trying to say here is that. That was the first attack on the part of the power structure using the us organization, etcetera. In a conflict situation to kill and murder. The leaders of the Los Angeles chapter, the blackout, the party do that process in the next three or four months. They attack more than twenty two offices I'm talking about in Indiana. I'm talking about the, they blew up the office and demands. I will literally got the crew Clinton of blew up that blow up that building. And I'm telling you. In San Diego brother. Bell was opening up to San Diego office at eight AM in the morning, and the police and FBI came jumped out of cars and came into place and shot him dead killing murdering. So I'm just says that period of tacking by the end of that year with the murder of Fred Hampton and then the shootout in Los Angeles, four days later after that cetera I have in my organization, I had twenty eight dead blackout to party members sixty nine wounded and defending ourselves. We defended ourselves and many of these attacks. By the end of that year, fourteen police were kill because we shot back when they came in shooting in us. We did not play. We shot back
