"Gracias, slave. Some past e F Plus, Yes, I think it is. Peter leads playing that role and So, yes, Sheldon Leonard's in this show. Um, a lot of producers wanted to lure Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall to the microphones. You know the star in this series, no Detective series or whatever, you know. And they turned a lot of a lot of offers down and they were constantly because producers knew that Humphrey Bogart did a lot of radio and Lauren were called it a lot of radio. Although they were big, big, big movie stars. They weren't always filming movies and with radio you can tape it. You know similar to you? You're continuing to turn down offers to, you know, tour with the Rolling Stones, Stones or the Beatles as you call it? Yes. Springsteen called me last week so I can just have to make tough choices. You know, I hate saying no You know, you don't hate saying no to me saying No. You say to me all the time for these people. Well, you're not offering the big dollars Really? But you know some, but I You know my priorities are this show right and classic radio. But like lots and lots of producers were after The Bogart's to be in a series and then Frederick Ziv, who was a huge syndicator of fact, He's indicated Boston Blackie, which we heard earlier. Cisco Kid and So many other shows. He he just made them an offer they could not refuse. And I mean it was big dollars hugely lucrative. Offer and around their schedule will record around your schedule. The Bogart's because we know how busy you are, Um and they did this show and I think they re I think they recorded Close to a couple 100 shows. And we have a lot of them, not all of them, but we have a lot of them in great sound quality quality, as we're listening to this one is called Rudy Cajun. And it's from 1952. Let's get back to it now. The conclusion too bold venture..

Not that Whitney Houston yet Whitney Houston, Huh? And it's Paul's gonna love somebody or familiar their clothes. Clock strikes. Um, so this was the song of the summer of 1987 topped the charts in more than a dozen countries, and it was her fourth consecutive number one hit, and it's called Houston singing. I've got to love somebody right close sold me how and when. Fast. Here it is. I wanna dance with somebody. Okay? Just one more dollar. Pretty close Difficulties the word off. I wonder why she never asked me to tour with her, right? Well, too late for that now. Yeah, maybe shouldn't have my number, right? I was probably unlisted. Back then. That was probably is probably the only reason why she didn't ask me the tour whether thing to do at some things you missed out. On that, but still, you have time to, you know, fix sad with some other big groups considering the mix mixed off her. Who's Mick? Mick Jagger? Mac makes sense. I'm considering it right. It should be fine here without to update from 18 million to 25 million for Mike and I can handle things here. So I encourage you to accept that offer, please. And it's only like three months. So right go please go. Alright, please. Go. Please go. Do me a favor. Do Michael favor. Take a little break. Take it. Let's take a like a little poll. I was afraid. Let's ask our listeners do they want me to go for three months or do they want me to stay? You'd be fine. As long as we know you're coming back and we could hear you on tour. I think we'd be okay with it. I'd miss the show. I miss you and Mike and yeah, we've missed you a little bit the listeners and playing the classic radio show. I've missed that, of course, 25 millions. Lot of money, right? And you could share it with those, uh, those back at home who support you? That's right. Like it actually Just use a little piece of that. Yeah, well, I'm giving it all right now I encourage you consideration considered highly alright.

"This is fresh air when Carl Reiner sitcom pilot starring him, his TV writer Rob Petrie was rejected by CBS producer Sheldon Leonard rescued it by persuading Reiner to replace the entire cast, including Reiner himself. The result. The Dick Van Dyke show was a major TV hit and made a star of its then unknown leading lady Mary Tyler Moore. Terry Gross spoke with her about the show and her TV character in 1995. What were you told about the character of Laura? Just that she was going to be a wife, a television wife, and that really had its classical parameters and dimensions that they were established. And they hardly ever varied except A Sze to whether or not the wife was the star of the show. In which case she was the funny one. Or if she were the straight man for the male star, and she was then totally supportive, but all these wives We're kind of obedient and you know, a representative of the vows to love, honor and obey. They hardly varied from that, and With with Carl Reiners character the way she was written, Laura actually had opinions of her own. While she was asserting herself. She also didn't make Dick Van Dyke look like a dummy. It was ah, a matter of two people. I mean, society's expectations of that point still said, Hey, wait a minute, lady. You only go so far here, but I think we broke new ground. And and that was helped by my insistence on wearing Pants. You know, jeans and and capri pants at the time because I said, I've I've seen all the other actresses, and they're always running the vacuum in these little flowered frocks with high heels on And I don't do that. And I don't know any of my friends to do that. So why don't we try to make this real and I'll dress on the show the way I do in real life, But it wasn't that easy. The sponsors were afraid you brazen right? They pointed specifically to if they used the term cupping under And I can only assume that that meant my you know my my seat that there was a little too much definition. And so they allowed me to continue to wear them in one episode. One scene per episode. And only after we check to make sure that there was a little cupping under as possible could coming under referring to the fit of your pants, the fit of the pants on my behind, right? But within a few weeks we were we were sneaking them into a few other scenes in every episode, and they were definitely cutting under and everyone thought it was great. The funny thing is, you know. Women liked me. They were not envious of the fact that their husbands had a crush on me. It was okay with them. They they were the first to know when I would meet people. They'd say My husband loves you so much. And he thinks you're so sexy. And this was it was not thing because they were also able to identify with me as a friend as a girlfriend. There was no resentment, no fear. Yeah, well, I think that that speaks so well for the character and your your portrayal of her. Did you do a lot of rehearsing with Dick Van Dyke? Or did you just have to do it? Minutes before the actual broken? The whole show was done in what they call multiple camera technique could still done today. But back then we were maybe the sixth or seventh show to use the technique. It began with Joan Davis, not Lucille Ball as everyone thinks John Davis did a show called I married Joan. What a girl! What a world What a life! Hey for you, and then Lucy and several other shows followed. But in that show it's a little like doing theater that's captured on film. You rehearsed for five days and then Ah, On the evening of the fifth day, the audience comes in and the camera's having blocked their moves in yours lined up with them. You film it from top to bottom in continuity. So during those five days, it was at least the 1st 3 days. It was very much a matter of rehearse. And contribute and attempt things and not be afraid to fail to make a fool of yourself. Just pick yourself up.

"Van Dyke played TV writer and family man, Rob Petrie, a character Reiner had based on himself like show. It always seemed like Dick Van Dyke so himself is the The same person in the middle of all these really crazy people. Did you ever feel that way? I always felt that way. I basically always the same person in a madhouse. Starting in very, very first show on Broadway call. Call me Mister. I remember the producer saying When I went on the road, he said, No, I don't ever want you to ask me for a raise because you're supposed to get great reviews if you don't get great reviews. You don't deserve to be in this place. So don't send me great reviews and say you want to raise after you leave New York, and I never did. But when I got to Chicago they had the review had seen in New York a few months before and said, I'm not going to like this company any better than I like the one in New York and then proceeded to write a glowing review of me saying that I change the show from What? She didn't like what you did like, and I said, Boy, what a time to ask for a raise, And I knew I couldn't. However, I had a bunch of nuts in the company. They would tear phones out of the wall. They couldn't They fought with each other. They kept coming to my dressing room. Say, Can I dress with you? I have the star dressing down, says I can't dress with someone so Really a bunch of us. And if I told you then names you say, Oh, yes. You're probably right. Well, I wrote to the producer and said, I'm not sending you the reviews, but I do believe I deserve a raise. Just for being the company psychiatrist. His company will fall apart if I weren't that minister to it, and you know, he sent me a $35 raise $35 for being a company psychiatrist. I really Have the I'm supposed to be the same one in every situation. I really I'm not. But I certainly know how to play it. The Dick Van Dyke show is has become one of the really classic. Sitcoms from television wasn't nevertheless a difficulty show to sell to the network after you had created it. No, it's a matter of fact, the network bought it right away. They knew the quality of of the show, and they knew the performances were very winning our ratings the first year we weren't the best because we're on opposite Perry Coma who was riding real high at the time had a wonderful show. A variety show and they were thinking of cancelling is the second year because we're only half sponsored. But Sheldon Leonard, our executive producer, got the other half sponsored and I I voted for a very Sort of dramatic thing that was not being done at the time to rerun it. During the summer. I said people who didn't see his consent. Plus now people who watched very caramel consent plus and it happened. A sample this and they stayed with us the following year and for the next five years. How did you cast yourself as Alan Brady, The star of the show. Why did I cast myself doing it originally? Yeah. How did you catch yourself? No. You mean the Alan? But Well, I was looking for a major star and I know I couldn't get a major star to play a major start by giving him some buddies. Small scenes to do so. I said, I gotta find somebody. They would think it was a star, and then I cast myself as well. I was a second banana, but I was close to being a star. And the first year I didn't turn around. I used the back of my head. I use myself on the phone or under a A towel when I was being shaved or something, and I didn't show my face because I don't want the audience to say always that the story is not big enough. But by the second and third year, the scrips got so elaborate. And they seemed to like Alan Brady that I turned him around and showed who he was, and it turned out to be me and nobody was terribly disappointed..

Reiner was the straight man throwing unscripted questions at Brooks, who claimed to be the 2000 year old man. Reiner and Brooks also did the circuit of TV variety shows. But Reiners next move back into Siri's TV was to write a sitcom about a situation he knew quite well being a dad in New Rochelle, who commuted in New York City to write for a network TV variety show. He wrote scripts for 13 episodes and even filmed a pilot called head of the Family. But CBS didn't buy it. Not with him playing the lead Rob Petrie and Barbara Britain as his wife, Laura, Robert. Your son dislikes you say, how can you dislike me? I am his father hate their fathers. It's only six years old. He doesn't know me long enough to hate. But rather than let the project die. TV producer Sheldon Leonard persuaded Reiner that the scripts were fine, but the cast needed a complete overhaul. Including Reiner.

"Matter S O. Sanjay is off this week, so coming up in just a little bit. We're going to take your Would you rather questions if you want to get him in now 4487207 50 So basically you will ask us. What do you rather question? Keep it clean, and we're gonna answer in the studio. The big breaking news this morning was the loss of Carl Reiner, 98 years old comedy legend. In fact, Mel Brooks, his best friend, tweeted out this statement today, and I just read this before you get to the interview Carlos, a giant unmatched in his contributions to entertainment. He created comedy gems like The Dick Van Dyke Show the Jerk and Where's Papa? I met him in 1950 when he joined Sid Caesar on your show of shows, and We've been best friends ever since I loved him. We were doing the 2000 year old man together. There's no better straight man in the world. So whether he wrote or perform, he was just your best friend. Nobody could do it better. He'll be greatly missed. A tired cliche in times like this, But Carl in car Reiners case. It's absolutely true. He will be greatly missed. So back in 2000 for interviewed Carl Reiner on this very show, and Deborah Green has condensed into a shorter interview. So without further do rest in peace. Carl Reiner joining me now one of the founding fathers, Really of American comedy, the Legend, that is Carl Reiner. Mr Reiner. Thanks so much. I'm so good. Do. We ended the word comedy one of the founding of America. My God, what I have to be older than the 2000 year old man that that's great. No, definitely a founding Father American comedy, though I mean, just looking your resume its its astonishing and especially personally the impact that your work has had on me and and over the years just Just an incredible list of stuff that really holds up over time. I'm not here You're still rolling. In fact, you have a new book coming out called. I remember me. If somebody knows where to buy books. They're waiting for you and they're stopped and waiting for you to grab on, and I feel wonderful about it because I have said this and I really made it. I think it's the best thing I've ever done. As far as I'm concerned, it's the last thing I'm ever done is always the thing you love best. But this one was such a labor of love, and they gave me a chance to relive my life. In the best way possible, remembering the good things the sad things, but they all mulch in tow. What I found out was a pretty good life. I won't trade this for anything. I couldn't imagine. How long did it take you to put the book together about a year and 1/2. And it's funny. I was always finished. I always felt. Well, I'm finished tonight. Walk around the block, And every time I got to the third corner, something popped in my eyes. Oh, I'm going to put that in. And so it it kept continue ating itself. I was finished about three or four times. So obviously this is ah. Not a retelling of your life story. But, you know, gives a general idea of where you've been what you've done up until the president. You're still active. You're still out there doing stuff right now. Well, I was much like you know that right now, with I performed on Jimmy last night, Jimmy Kimmel and I must say I had the best time. It doesn't matter what age your ad, But when you hear an audience and urine, Hector, you're the years drop off you and what happens if you left with your brain. And if your brain was always I'm here to make fun. It keeps doing that talking to Karl Reiners book is out now in stores. I remember me. I remember you. Probably most or earliest from the Dick Van Dyke Show that that show just meant so much to me, and it stands up over time. And it was so well crafted and so well performed. Why does that show hold up so well? How good was that show? Because it was another show about somebody telling about his life. Honestly, I was telling Marion Dick, we're still Reiner myself. Why I lived in New Rochelle. And I wrote about my days coming into doing the show of shows from Nouri shelter in New York. And when I went to New Rochelle I talked about To show to my wife and the people I was with him when I went to work. I talked about my family, so I was writing about what I knew about it. It's one of the greatest heroes of all time. There's no question that I ask you a question. Were you involved in the casting of the show at all? Oh, yes, of course. I was involved in the casting of it, but The casting of Dick Van Dyke was wonderful acts, not an accident that I had done. A pilot called All of me. No head of the family and the family, and I and I didn't sell. It was not too good. It was all right was I put it aside and started to write movies, and I was called in my agent who was very bar that that 13 episodes the scripts like fallow, So he called me in to visit with Sheldon Leonard, who was a producer with Danny Thomas, and they said they read the script and I said that to show I said Sheldon, I admire your work, but I said I must tell you I do not want to fail with the same material twice. And he said he said you won't fail call. We're goingto better actor to play you. And so is he. The one who recommended Van Dyke and I went from the or concealment. Bye bye, Birdie. And he he pulled out every stop. Dick can do anything that is abnormally required of anybody Do he can move Can't dance. You can't sing, it could fall. He's just an extraordinarily talented and good man. That's a thing that made it so good. So work. It was the happiest days of my life. Five years, no doubt about it. And Mary Tyler Moore was unknown before that show. Oh, yes. Danny Thomas, who was putting up the money? And I said, I've signed 30 girls and I don't have Ah, no, no, it is And Sheldon says you'll feel knowing you're fine. And then he said, Hey, that girl that read for us to be my daughter on the show, and he said that girl with the three names, he said. She could be my daughter because her nose went the wrong way. Go the other way. So we remembered. Her name was Mary Tyler Moore. I colder and I asked her to read and she read too cool lines. Two words. Just Hello, Robert. She have a spitting in the voice that throw me And so I went across the room. And like the claw that you see in these in these pears in the box, you know, it looks like a They had a clot. And I'm my I grab them top of a head like a claw and I should come with me. She thought I was going to cost and I walked her down the hall to Sheldon. I said I found her. I found her. That was what we found married. Brilliant. And, of course, rounding out the cast buddy Sally. Just how I want to write for them. Those was suggested by Sheldon. He immediately said Sally's the Girl for this and Sally Rose Marie said, and you know, and I was thinking of a younger guy for ah, like a 1,000,000 young Mel Brooks for them, and she said, you'll not never never do better than having more. Amsterdam was human joke machine Every time we needed a joke, it's not a wild joke. He was there for it. He saved our arrest. A lot of talking. I was I was, That's what I was going to ask you. How fun was it too right for the body character of more answer, But so apparently he came a long way, wrote his story. But every once in a while we needed equipment. He was Full equips. He was called Human Joke machine, and he really was that any subject will give you five jokes on any subject. Just just a magical cast a magical show and borrow. Reiner joins us his book. I remember me out in stores now, basically a tale of oven. Amazing life time. It's yourjob. You people out there to get those book out of those stores that Stifled in those stores. They have to be read of a book isn't ready yet. It breathes like this. You want. You don't want that sound in your town. Absolutely not speaking. A great television is they're still being Ah, great television being made today. What are some of your favorites? There was some.

"Sheldon Leonard who was that, that, that, you know, when, when George Bailey goes into the back to the future and Knicks is we serve drapes hoop for the guys who wanna get drink. We'll get drunk, hot and face. Get me. I'm giving out wings there. Yeah. Yeah. This was not a I was not. How will say I forgot where I was right? But still, it's like no so so clearly to get back to the original point. So I've just been very distressed a I've been groaning just to see this because I because to me, I look at wine and I said, I'll be very honest. I'm maybe I'm snobby on this, but I do I do. Because I've gotten into wine in a more is not just some casual thing just to drink a bottle of wine and get drunk. But I do enjoy the taste of wine. I do try to match it with the with the foods that I that I eat, I do have a favorite types of wine. I'm zinfandel guy. Now here's another thing. White zinfandel is not zinfandel. I do is read is a DR red wine white zinfandel is Kool aid. It's pink, and it's made for people that don't like wine, but want to have a glass of wine. And so now I will I will now segue into my Rosa discussion. Rosie wine is the cool. I it's the Kool aid of wine, if you order Rosa wine, you should move over, because a giant jug of Kool aid is going to crash through a wall like the commercial. Okay. But I don't drink Roseanne. It's so first of all, it's biased. It's sugar water. It's pink sugar water can have to have good rose. Eight look, I know that my friends who drink Rosie drink it and school, and it's the cool thing they are not drinking wine. That's not why. It's a Spitzer. It's a Spitzer. It's it's not wine. It's not even it's creepy. I had to laugh about five years ago, my, my godson you know, who's Mr. hipster. We went to his house, and he goes, do you want some wine? And I'm like, of course, he goes, do you want red or Rosa? Did I go Roseanne? Because this is right at the beginning of the of, of the, the renaissance of Rosa. Right. And I'm like Roseanne. Say where to help first of all, where did you find that? I mean that was the cheapest wine. It was Boon's farm. It was two dollars a bottle in the seventies. That's what what you bought Roseanne wine when you were sixteen and you wanted to get drunk in the alley. That's what you drink. So now of a sudden, I'm like, how does he so I'm like, well, no, I don't want rose eight wine, I want real wine. The snob in me. Don't listen to your point about beer wine has moved onto, and so it's the vault I don't think rose eight and again, I don't drink, but I don't think it says that as it once was, I think there are probably some really nice rose as in three years Rosie wine, is going to be back to rose wine. You never see it again on. Okay. That's all I can tell you the, the, the accent, Mark over the e will be gone, and you won't find it anywhere this, that is a total fad. I just because it's as once again, I've been harping on this for a good five years. The one thing I have no, I have no problems with millennials except that all they've been doing basically, for the last five years is going back to the past finding cool stuff, rebranding it and then acting like they discovered it. Well, it is true that the nineties are back. Well, my point is my point is, oh, final is so cool. Okay. I had a hundred thousand vinyl albums. Don't tell me how cool or not cool. I don't need an instruction about vinyl albums. Do you still do I saw you showing them to Dean Richards? So I know you still have this, but my point is I have them from nineteen seventy-one. And now the hipsters are going, oh, this is so cool. I know it's goal. Don't tell me about it. Everything that so now rosy, why? Because it was white wine and red wine. And so they're like, they went back to the seventies and someone said, well, you know, nobody's really using this rosy wine used to be this cheap wine that nobody even bought. It was kind of a joke. It was Boon's farm, and it was like Kool aid. But let's make it cool again, and we'll just make it our own. And that's what they did. That's all all they're doing is taking the past. Like I said, I'm once again I use my and I use my, my godson Patrick as I say, as my millennial meter to find out what the hell's going on. So about two or three years ago, we were out with him. And he goes, hey, have you ever heard of yacht, rock healthy, and I go what's yacht rock? And he goes, you know what yacht rock is? And I said, no, what is it? So he pulls out his phone with all his songs, and he pulls out his yacht, rock playlist, or, and he's playing. Ambrosia and Michael, McDonald, and Christopher cross and all these songs from the nineteen seventies and eighties this, which was at back then was called middle of the road, MOR or soft rock, like America. And what's the other? There's, there's a million of them, Brosio fire fall, a lot of these one hit wonders and he goes, who, here's yacht rock. And he's playing these songs, and I said, do I know them, of course? I know I know every word to those songs I grew up with these songs. He goes what really even you've heard these. But I'm like, yeah. Of course I did. I grew up with them. I have them all on vinyl, forty five's. Oh, this is yahtzee rock. I said, well, no it's not yacht rock. It's forty year old soft rock, which I grew up on. It's not yours. It's mine. Go get your own thing. But all they've done is rebranded everything from the past and try to make it there's and Rosa wine is right in that sweet spot. No pun intended, because it's so sweet. I don't even know how anybody drinks a whole glass of it. It's very big Rosie wine. You don't get drunk, you get a diabetic seizure from. If you drink too much Rosie wine. See, now, I feel like I am going to have to wind you up, you one of those Rosaiah all day sweat. But see, once again, the fact that there is a phrase like that is exactly my point twenty years ago. I didn't say I never heard. Let's, let's have a great day with cabernet. Okay. There was no t shirt. Hey now see I see an opportunity today. Yeah. Let's mails. I could make these up in my sleep. That's how stupid they are. Well, somebody is making a lot of money boy. Oh boy. By me, being this angry old man who rebels against everything. I've made absolutely no money off of it. And everybody that joys joins the trend are all millionaires. I understand that. I've, I've accepted my my place in life here here a lot in life. My lot in life is just to always be right. But it won't matter. And it won't generate any income. But at least I know I'm right. Or if you can't beat them, join them. The cabernet can't do. No. Because I have to take a shower every every minute of the day. I couldn't do it. I couldn't face myself if I if I made a million dollars off a t shirt that said, let's have a great day with the glasses of cabernet and think about this, that same phrase can go and rhymes with Chardonnay. I just thought of that. So now I've already hit both sides, hit the bed Chardonnay, which most of the most of the TV shows are all drinking. Oh, give me a glass of Sherry today. So I'm you know as a wine connoisseur and a wine snob. I readily admit it, and I hate to see wine so devalued, and I hate to see women. As I said, I have I have such I have the utmost respect by look at it. Look at my life, the most influential people on my life. We're all women. So I put women at a very high level, and I hate, and I hate to see women beginning to get more power and instead of elevating the power and showing us the right way. They're falling into the same power hungry traps, and trappings that men corrupted the system with. So that's what's. But this whole thing all I have to say is just watch television and count. There's a show on CBS. Thankfully, it's going off the air. I don't even know why I watch it or DVR. It's called life in pieces. It's on CBS. Who's in that sound Tom Hanks, his son is in it Colin Hanks, it's an interesting little show. They do like four little instead, advise you. The reason why the show is the concept of the show. I just think it's lazy writing each half hour episode is made up of Ford smaller little vignettes 'cause I don't think they have enough ideas for one idea, so they give you four little vignettes, and that's why it's called life in pieces because it's like four little four or five minute little segments of this family's life. It's like modern family, only there's not a an ongoing story throughout the episode. But there are in this show, there's at least two female characters who are constantly drinking wine every scene. Every seen this one woman has a glass of white wine. And I'm screaming at the set as it sucks. Then they wonder why I'm taking blood pressure medicine. Because it's like, wow, I just and so I and someone who, who really does enjoy wine and, and values it. I just think I'm torn because yes, it's nice to see a lot of people drinking wine, which is great for the industry. But then I also see them drinking wine, just because it's, it's the cool thing and next week or next month or next year. They'll be on to you know, Hawaiian punch with vodka. And then that'll be the cool thing you know. So I have to say that I do blame book clubs. Well you have had a bee in your bonnet about this for some time now. And but I'm glad to hear about book close. I'm not. But I am glad to hear it. Of course, first of all, a, I'm glad to hear that you drink red wine. But first of all your talion so you should, and be your family has a history in the spirits industry. Yes, they do. So I mean especially locally here in Chicago, people know the name, our Menendez. If you're an alcoholic, you definitely knew the name of. Actually a lot of people on the side of my family were not big drinker. Something right there. No, I'm not saying you. I'm just saying people that no I know. But I'm saying I believe that for everything they saw in all those years in the industry. I think it was a deterrent for, for many of my wall, tell you, what an extended family members who were working for knotty. So that's well, that's true. Because my mom. Her father when this is, you know, in the early twenties on her father was an entrepreneur, he owned different businesses, you know, grocery stores, and then he also owns some taverns. And so she to your point, she saw firsthand. She never worked in the tavern, because she was too young, but her mom and her dad used to work in the tavern, and, you know, and would since she would see you know what was going on and some of these people and so to your point, it she she became a teetotaler she surprised. Yes, she did not drink at all because she just was, like she saw the ravages, and my my, my I never met him. He passed away before. I was alive. But, but he did not drink and neither did my grandmother. And I didn't hear too much. But I believe that my mom's brother may have had a drinking problem. Oh, okay. He passed away before I was born to very young guy. And I think it may have even been drinking related. So once again, you find the people either, get caught up in that scene, and to their detriment, or they see it. And as you're saying within your family, at least some of the members of my family, they saw it and use it as an example of what not to do. Yeah. So, but well that's my only fear is that, you know, we will now with the legalization of marijuana and the legalization of gambling. Now and sports gambling. I mean, we don't have many, we don't have many more vices left. Hey, I mean, everything that was taboo for the last forty or fifty years, or one hundred years between alcohol. We had prohibition, obviously gambling was always, you know, something that was either just in Vegas or little select spots now. That's just rampant everywhere. Marijuana, of course, was the huge taboo now that's sweeping the country. Sadly, I don't know if this is if this is good. There's only one vice left. I.

"Fan of sixty s TV you probably know that Carl Reiner created the Dick Van Dyke show. But you might not know that he was originally supposed to be the star. And he told Conan O'Brien the story. A while back. I did the pilot was okay. You were the star high play Robert Petrie. Okay. Doesn't sell and Sheldon Leonard got ahold of these thirteen scripts from my agent, and he said he called me. And he says he's a very good. I said Sheldon. I don't want to fail twice with the same material and hero impersonating pretty well. He says you won't fail. How good a better actor to play. You. Everything worked out for the best there you guys ever watched Dick Van Dyke reruns. Yeah, I watched it somewhat. And I always remember, you know in the opening out. He would always Turpan something. I think I can. I think I remember that because I can relate to it. You know? Shoes or the computer or did he stretches across the family room the wood floor. Oh my gosh. Dallas myself. Here's a physical comedian tripping and falling everywhere always going to be top of mind with good old fashioned comedy. We need more of that. And Carl Reiner what a great actor. He is. I mean, the way he planned it though, when you think about the Dick Van Dyke show that is not how it turned out his plans were totally derailed just because life happened. And it's kind of a good reminder that we need to be flexible in our everyday plans to much less our financial plan. So that we can allow from adjustments along the way, I only know that because here on the show, Abe. You talk about how retirement income plans they're adjusted over time for your clients are life changes. And we want to make sure that our retirement income plans keep up with our life changes. You know, sometimes people get sick pass away early have grandkids. You know, sell the home that you've lived in for so long downsize retire retire early. You know, there's all kinds of things that happen. And we want to make sure that our retirement income plan keeps. With our life changes. And in addition, we want to continually monitor the plan that we've set up so usually once per year at a minimum we're getting together with all of our current clients to review the whole income plan and just make sure everything's on track. We definitely stay on you there. You know, if it's something you forgot to mention to us or you addresses or something happened. We check in once a year at least to try to get that information. We're just had a new client walk in the other day. And he said, you know, what you know, as we are kind of repositioning money's over to us. He said, you know, what I would have thought that my existing adviser with another company would have reached out to me. Well, guess what he didn't. And he ended up getting a form letter like a generic automated letter from a pretty big time company without his name address on it. I believe. Your account. Instead of mentioning his name. He was pretty taken back and that confirmed to him that doing business with us and trusting us with his income plan was the right decision for him. We mentioned this gentleman before that came in. He's a radio caller, and he's with a certain company in the area that most people know is not super wealthy or you just kind of right in the middle there. But he can no longer meet with the I guess the top adviser there. He's kind of like drop down the line and meeting with the other guy. I forget his analogy. But it was kind of like. Yeah. Trying to make an appointment now is like pretty much like pulling teeth with some of those companies you're not really valued it's not personal anymore. And that's something that is one of our values that we stick to all the time keeping it personal keeping in touch and all that. That's right. It's all about a relationship, and it's so much more than a transaction when it comes to money at financial services. You guys are about the relationship your about your clients emotions and making sure that they are happy with what they're doing. They understand it. They're confident. In it. And able to do the things that they want to spend their time doing in retirement and spend their money doing the wealth achieve accumulated listening today is a lot.
