Was Gary Devore's Death the First Proven State Sponsored Killing?
"So basically this detective puts on a bunch of scuba gear and goes into this aqueduct with about 15 feet of water. And he finds the truck, he finds it. He locates it and says, I got him. You know, but there's no laptop and the skeleton in the car, which was Gary devore, has no hands. And in addition to having no hands, there are a lot of other things about this official report that were suspicious because now the police and the sheriff's department took over with reporting on this. His laptop, which contained the script called the big steel, and his gun, which he always carried, they were missing. And by the way, the aqueduct was searched extensively during the initial disappearance and they had no success, and it showed no signs of impact. And for the official account to work, Gary devore would have had to have driven three miles against traffic without being seen. And also, by the way, let's not forget this. His lights weren't on. So the drive would have been in complete darkness. For three miles, going against the grain of traffic. And according to a Hollywood investigative reporter, Donald crutchfield, who worked for many famous people like Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, Marlon Brando. He said, evil knievel on his best night couldn't do this. So I know this all seems unbelievable. But that's exactly why doctor Alfred spent almost ten years investigating whether somebody or some organization had Gary devore killed. It's very difficult to actually prove something happened like a murder, but you can prove that something didn't happen like an impossible accident. How can you possibly turn around on a freeway and drive three miles against traffic with your lights off? If those facts are accurate and a bunch of experts say it would not have been possible, then you got to go so far as to say, you know, you've proven the first state sponsored killing in the United States. And therefore, the murder had to have been a cover up and our government kept it secret.

"To James Howard kunstler, also known as Jim, Jimmy Jimbo. Jimmy Jack. Jim reverend Jimmy. So we were just talking about rabbit ears. So yeah, so in the late 80s, early 90s, I got this job that I've started director of gravity, and I thought, who can I turn to who could write these stories? So you did just great work. And rabbit ears would, so we create this children's book, but then we get top Hollywood names to record them. I think the Davy Crockett was like Nicholas cage. And sacagawea, I don't remember who did that one. I'm pretty sure it was mom's maybelle. I'm almost, I'm almost certain that I don't. It was either mom's maybelle or Sinatra. Either one. One of those two. But then we would get amazing musicians. Garrison keeler. Yeah. Can you use his name now? Is it safe to say garrison? I think he wants his touched a woman's back. When they were taking a photo and he lost his career over that thing. Goodness. Marco Connor, the fabulous Marco Connor, did the music for that. It was quite a fantastic production of video. Well, that's the point is that the rabbit hair stuff was super accurate to one tons of awards. So I had the privilege of writing many of those. And my name is attached to these Grammy Awards for best children's recording 1989 or something like that. I think that one too. Yeah, I know. It's crazy. So but that's kind of like the last time I saw you in person. Was 1991.

And as Joe Biden is making that very, very difficult. For many people across the country, but thank God the Supreme Court got involved.

Was Frank Sinatra a Failure? 'Sinatra: The Life' Authors Tell Us
"And I have the co authors of this major new biography of Frank Sinatra. It's called Sinatra the life. Anthony summers and Robin swan. You have a quote in your book that I'll read to you from George Fraser, the legendary Boston Globe critic. He set the Frank Sinatra directly all your life you wanted to be a big man, but the wrong kind of big man, you're a sad case, Frankie, I think you're the best male vocalist that ever lived, but I also think you're a miserable failure as a human being. Was that accurate or exaggerated? It was certainly tough from the hip, you can't as a biographer. I mean, we really work at this and we work to try and get as far as one can humanly into the person and the personality and the suffering and the joys of the person that we're studying. And this was a guy who we ended up liking in spite of and that's a very big in spite of in spite of his involvement with the mob, I think you must ask her, but I think my course of Robin as a woman liked him as a person in spite of his pretty savage treatment of many of the women that he knew and the women that we interviewed and we were lucky enough to talk to now that he's gone. He's been gone almost exactly 7 years to talk to a number of the women that he knew for significant periods of his life. And almost to a woman they spoke of him in spite of the way he'd sometimes treated them. He spoke of they spoke of him with lasting affection. This is a guy who had something very, very positive and yet could be a really unpleasant person.

Dennis Asks 'Sinatra: The Life' Authors Anthony Summers and Robbyn Swan, 'Will Frank Sinatra Endure?'
"And I have just come across this new biography of Frank Sinatra with filled with pictures as well as great fascinating detail about his life. The two authors are Anthony summers who was a former BBC journalist, and Robin swan is also a journalist and they have written biographies of Jay Edgar Hoover and Richard Nixon. Anyway, this book is titled Sinatra the life. You can't get much briefer than that much more concise. So Anthony and Robin, I welcome you to the program. Hello there. You're both now. I'm speaking to you, you're in Ireland. Yes, that's our home base. Okay. We both brought in as you actually will gather in a moment is America Italian American born and bred. I'm from Ireland and this has been my base for years, but America in a way has been my patch as a journalist for many years. Well, welcome to America via radio to both of you. I have so much to ask you. First, I guess the first is, do you believe, 'cause I was talking about this just the other day. I finally came across didn't come across. I finally worked out my own definition of great art, music, or any other art. And that is that it will endure over generations there are two and that it endures in repeated hearings for any given listener. Will Frank Sinatra endure, I think we think so, would you agree Robin? Absolutely. I think we think so and a measure of it perhaps is in sheer longevity and endurance as a test, we worked on this book so not for the life for the past four years. And when I say work, I mean sort of 8 days a week. And that meant that 8 days a week and often far into the night, we both played Sinatra. We have two because we were writing his life. And we still like it. Now there aren't many people that you could listen to every day for full years and still be successful. And we're not

When Chico Landed on the Wrong Side of Mobsters
"One thing you can't do when you collecting money that's drug money. You can not bring up the name of a mobster because mom says I suppose to be far away from drugs, even though most of them earn a big living from heroin and cocaine or whatever the fuck else is out there. They don't want it on their hands. They don't want their name mentioned anywhere near because it's certain jail time. So they came at night where that meant that we didn't know this, but they were going to attack Chico and hit him good. And it was going to be bad for me because I vouched for him. I looked the mobsters in the eyes and I vouched and he's a good guy. And I take responsibility. So one night, Chico comes back from wherever, hey, listen, Ralphie and Bobby. This guy named Bucky. They want us to go eat with them a genos. Great Italian restaurant banana forever. Now it's gone, but every Sinatra used to go there.

We're in here in GLE eating like kings. And everything's great. And Ralphie turns me and says, AJ, don't you got work to do tonight? Yeah, I gotta hit some clubs. Why don't you go do your thing, you know? Me and she'd go and Bucky, we're gonna talk business. You go have your go off your night with the girls and the gossip, whatever the fuck you doing. We'll see you at the club. All right, good. Kisses and hugs. I leave. My phone rings an hour and a half later. After they said Chico like even a bigger pig than we are. It took him outside, Jake lane getting home. Oh, look at the kid. Now we'll run you home. They put him in a car. They turn in a couple of corners to a dog street. Wow, and she gonna know. How are you going? It's not regular. Yeah, I know. They stopped the car. They set him out of the car. You brought up my name today. You brought up my name for a drug debt? Or else, you know, I didn't know. I mean, no, no, no, no. What did I tell you? Don't ever use my name in a bad way. I didn't mean that. Well, they'd beat the shit out of Chico. I mean, his face was up to here. They beat him so much. They hit him so much in his stomach. That they actually, they broke the lining, there were his intestines are of some shit because eventually, after this whole thing happened, they left him bloody in the snow.

Snow car was skipping. All over the road is they tried to navigate. These narrow mountain passes tacoma's nerves berry turned on the radio radio station.

They're now trying to take advantage of this terrible mistake that you guys made and make it into a show business bobby-socksers party and then just coming up on the lights of this tiny little mountain town the just start applying strangers on the night. Now look sure. It was a coincidence. But the scene is so perfect. He couldn't write it.

AJ on Journalism, Politics, and Nancy Sinatra
"I got in the journals because of you, 'cause I saw you doing it, and I was like, this is fucking great. I do journalism. No, but you know what I'm saying? The point is, the point is, I got into it because I'm like, all right, you know, I love this. But the point is, I want to know from somebody who's been in for a while. I know they're always very democratic. Democrats, but always this band like meaning or did something happen over the past like with social media involved in virtual signaling. 20 years. I didn't know it was so biased. Now, part of it is me. I never. I wasn't political. I didn't know details about politics. I thought it was so boring. You know, in the 90s, I voted for Clinton twice. I voted for Bush. I'm not a for Obama to first time. And after I didn't vote from the second time, I started really getting into politics. And I saw like this is bullshit. I don't know, he's lying. And then when Trump came, of course, because of my history with them, I'm like, this is my guy. But nothing in the newsroom was ever no one acted that way. No one talked about it. No one didn't hang out with you because I did a show yesterday about my friendship at Nancy Sinatra. And we got along famously. She cooked for me. We watched The Sopranos. I bought a bottle of sambuca to her house. She cooked and we watched the show. We drink espresso. She don't drink. AJ, this is your bottle.

Crazy Quincy Jones Lies About Elvis
"Quincy Jones is at it again. Look, the guys are hell of a producer and a ranger. I enjoyed the documentary I watched on him not too long ago. He was done everything. He used to write, he's the range music for Sinatra at 20 bucks a song. That he's made some millions with Michael Jackson. He's amazing. But we know the guy's nuts. We know he's nuts. He was interviewed recently for GQ. And if you remember the last interview, the last time they let him loose, he said that Marlon Brando fucked Richard Pryor. He just went on. And then they corralled him. His daughter's around dad. Stop saying that shit. So he apologized. But now he's back. And the GQ writer asked him if he ever worked with Elvis. And Quincy said, nope, I wouldn't work with him. Why not? They said, and he said, well, I was writing for Tommy Dorsey. Bob, back in the 50s, and Elvis came in and Tommy said, I don't want to play with him. He was a racist motherfucker. I'm going to shut up now, but every time I saw Elvis, he was being coached by Otis Blackwell, the man who wrote the song don't be cruel and Otis would tell Elvis how to sing. Meanwhile, not that Quincy Jones would care, but Otis Blackwell told David Letterman in 1987 that he and Elvis Presley had never met doesn't stop doesn't stop Quincy from telling a good story. So in that interview, Quincy claimed that Dorsey wouldn't let Elvis play with the band because, quote, that motherfucker couldn't see. But as we know, that's not true. If Elvis was a racist, you know, he probably he probably would have rolled over in his grave to see his daughter marry Michael
