"Beautiful. Before heading to the UK, President Biden signed a bill to help victims of childhood sex abuse. The eliminating limits to justice for child sex abuse victims act gets rid of a statute of limitations for survivors to file civil claims against their abusers. Victims had been only able to file federal claims until the age of 28 or until ten years had passed since the abuse occurred. The bill was introduced by senator dick Durbin, who said the bipartisan bill honors the basic notions of justice for survivors. Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky says a mass burial site has now been found in a recently recaptured Ukrainian city, Aaron McLaughlin is there. There seems to be more graves than trees in this area, many of the graves are unmarked others have numbers. One top Ukrainian official says 440 graves were found in this city of isom. The price of groceries in the country is seen the biggest yearly increase since 1979. The agriculture department points to supply chain issues transportation and labor cost has contributed to the prices rising roughly 14% between August of last year and this year. The biggest increase is for eggs and margarine both up almost 40% over the past year. I'm Scott Carr. Officials are confirming the crash that killed Indiana but Republican congresswoman Jackie wolowski and three others was an accident. Authorities say the crash in August was caused by the Stafford driving her car who drove into an opposite lane while attempting to pass a truck. The car collided with another vehicle killing while arsky and her two staffers on board as well as the driver of the other car, police say excessive speed also played a role.

"The creature this week is ningyo. From Japanese folklore. Now, we all know mermaids and sirens. The ningyo are kind of like those, but they're The Little Mermaid was the size of an actual fish, had a tuft of scraggly hair on her head, webbed fingers, little sharp teeth, and, quote, mouth like a monkey, whatever that means, and golden scales. This thing is apparently irresistible though, with a hauntingly beautiful voice to match its haunting everything else. It apparently sounds like a flute or a skylark, and though it doesn't have words, is apparently inescapable. Like most fish, they don't like to be caught, so if you manage that, throw it back. Though, if your fish has scraggly hair and fingers, you probably shouldn't take that thing home anyway. They prefer to be in their complex societies under the sea. And are known for their healing abilities. If you somehow find yourself on their good side, they can give you immortality by eating just the smallest amount of their flesh. Don't worry, they can heal themselves, it's what they do. Drinking their fish blood will heal any illness, but if you try to take either of those things without them being offered, you'll be the victim of, quote, dire consequences. Probably a whole city of terrifying fish people coming after you, but who knows. In the years since, the creature has apparently gotten a makeover and transformed from a creepy little fish humanoid with sharp teeth to something resembling a mermaid. Though, it's only slightly less creepy, a picture I found and posted on the website has a creature with the body of a fish and the head of a woman. Yeah, just the head. And even that both has horns and fish eyes, looking off in two different directions. So yeah, only slightly less creepy. That's for this week, myths and legends is by Jason and Carissa wiser.

Peggy fulford was a business manager for some of the most high profile athletes in professional sports. Including former NBA star Dennis Rodman. To everyone who knew her, she was the picture of success. A strong, confident woman in a male dominated field. Very charming, very affable. She's very charismatic. She was funny. Peggy treated her clients like family. They gave her complete control of their finances, and she promised to help them build generational wealth. But underneath the trustworthy persona was an unquenchable thirst for money and fame. Seeing her just dripping in diamonds in the bentleys and the big House and it was immaculate. Peggy's clients trusted her completely. Deception was unimaginable, but Peggy was not who she said she was. Eggy, fulford, Peggy king, Peggy berard, Peggy Simpson. She's got like 6 or 7 aliases. It's hard to know what name to call her. From cast media, this is the opportunist season 5. Peggy fulford. Follow the opportunist wherever you get your podcasts.

"Motorcycles for Bloomberg previously she covered luxury culture and travel for Forbes, Hannah Elliott, welcome back to masters in Bloomberg. It's so good to be master's business. What am I? Welcome back to masters in whatever the heck this is. Thank you. It's great to be here. I always enjoy talking to you 'cause I'm kind of a car guy. And before we get into automobiles, let's just start a little bit with your background of your career. You are staff writer at Forbes luxury. What led you to being a writer and what led you to luxury. It's a really funny story. I always start out by saying, of course, at Bloomberg, I get to write about cars. I get to write about the fun thing. Most people here write about how to make money. I get to write about how to spend money. This was not by design this was not my plan. I did love words and books and I did study journalism in college. I went to Baylor university. Thinking of Brittany griner right now, she also went to Baylor, so shout out Brittany. But I went to Baylor, I got a journalism degree, and moved to New York. I had interned writing about politics and religion actually, but saw on Craigslist and ad to assist the automotive editor at Forbes. And I knew nothing about cars. I come from a sports family. I'm not a car. I still say I'm not actually a car person. This is my job. It's a beat. Were you a sport? Did you play sports? Yeah, I ran track. I was gonna guess volleyball because I was a basketball. No, you short for best of all, but you could ride height for a beach volleyball. I got some cousins who are very good at volleyball. They played an SMU. But I was a runner. My dad ran for Nike in the 80s. Oh, really? Marathon distance. So I come from a big running family, my brother played basketball actually in Europe, professionally. So big sports family, no car. Anything. I mean, no, I mean, I did know how to drive a stick shift because my dad taught me in his old Ford when I was 16, mostly because I bug them just to do it. But I had an uncle with an Acura legend, which was probably the nicest car I was ever exposed to. Wow. And just shared an old Buick skylark with my sister in high school that I was very embarrassed by. So not understandably. Although my sister actually, I think she kind of liked it. But not interested in cars at all. But back to this Craigslist ad, I figured, well, Forbes is a good brand. It's recognizable. I know I want to do journalism. There's my foot in the door. I'll figure it out once I get in. And fast forward, you know, this was on like 2007, 2008, a lot of people got laid off in the industry, my editor who I'd been working with for a year and a half or so got laid off. He was expensive. I wasn't. Being paid. Next to nothing. So it was like, well, who can write about cars and pick this up? 'cause we just fired the guy who was covering him, which doesn't make sense. Right. And so, yeah, Elliot, you go. And Matthew de Paula, I will always be so grateful to him. He was the editor. At Forbes at the time who hired me and really for a year and a half took me around everywhere and just taught me the beat. And that's how I approached it. This is a beat, I'm gonna approach this just like anything else. There are no wrong questions. It's just like, this is the way that I would cover anything. And then I always kind of thought, well, I'll eventually go into other things and I did certainly do luxury and watch coverage at Forbes and celebrity coverage. You know, I got to talk to everyone from Jennifer Lopez to cover story on Elon Musk back in the day before anyone really knew about him, which is. Crazy to think about now. So yeah, so Forbes was great and just kind of was like cars where the thing that I did because no one else at Forbes was doing them. And then I just never stopped. And you know, what was the first car you reviewed it for? That's a great question. The first car I remember being allowed to drive as a Forbes staffer was probably a vintage door, a Lamborghini aventador. Oh, really? So which I was terrified. I have some fun. Yes. I remember Matthew was in the passenger seat. So I wasn't completely solo enough. De Paula, who was Matthew depaul, who was the editor who hired me there. He was still around. And I mean, I was terrified. But also I was young and dumb enough not to know any better. Right. And I think that actually really served me. I didn't know what I was supposed to do or not do. I just approached it like a journalist, which I was, and I still am really proud to be a journalist. I think it's the best job and cars are way more fascinating now, even than then. I mean, that was 12, 15 years ago. And even now, the car industry is the most exciting industry. It's crazy to be really. So I was telling a friend that I was going to speak with you, again, and talk about cars. And their response was, you know, I love pizza, but if I had to make pizza for a living, I would hate pizza. Is that the same? Is there still a thrill here or are you like no longer can smell the roses? That's a really good question. I think it actually works in my benefit that I never was a car person anyway. I am not a car person, and I always say, here's the difference. Yeah, because I think you've become a car person, whether or not you want it to. Well, I can certainly speak the language if I need to and I feel very comfortable in those circles. But here's the difference. I don't go to car things that I'm not basically paid to be there. Yes, it's enjoyable. Yes, it's glamorous and fun, and I really do enjoy it, but I don't go to car things on my own personal time. I play with my dog, you know, or go buy a flower or something. Something else, because yeah, I just think like your pizza friend, it would be too much. I really say, look, if your car is the most interesting thing about you, you're probably a little bit boring. I like to be around people who have a lot of dimensions and cool car is one of them, and that's awesome. Right. But to me, that should not be the most interesting thing about you, I love car people. I love talking about cars, but like, come on, you gotta have some depth. Two. Coming up, we continue our conversation with Hannah Elliot, hypercar reviewer for Bloomberg, talking about her favorite new automobiles. I'm Barry rickard sure listening to masters in business, on Bloomberg radio. How upper progressive notes that most

And it's also to an investigation by the Internal Revenue Service because we can't take a joke. Oh no. You can't play around with them at all. But make the smallest little joke in the penis. I suggest that people use it as a tax deductible contribution. I guess that really they couldn't take it. They couldn't take it. I mean, I wonder how many hundreds of thousands of people they got putting it down as a contribution. Well, judging from my roles here, three. And besides, how can we do the show with these cuffs on? Well, we're trying to get Congress to enact a save the skeet's protection act. I think it's only right. I mean, it is an endangered species. Yeah, it is. We need something.

We would never do something that would cause us to have the greatest matter our lives and you will forgive me where we are here in texas it is may and i ex special pollen induced blues voice.

Yeah while sitting at the bonfire sitting around the campfire chase monkey cigarettes. And that's how i feel. Yes over hear me sniffling. A there was an episode of friends phoebe cold and she had her extra sexy room. That's right. I forgot about that. And there's gotta be someone out there. I know there's someone out there that knows the fringe episode. And i'm talking about this sounds a bit bitches. Are having a ac. Like a reunion show really. Yeah i can we all just listen offering stuff back i but maybe can we leave things where they were nhs. Try something new run out of ideas but you know what. That's exactly why we are reviewing someone else's are unique idea and our art is to talk about someone else and today of course we are talking about the ecstasy album skylark. Which is one of our favorite albums so here we go We talked about this. This album is a representative of a full day in the life from dawn to dusk and a wife. Even if you will which is also a full cycle of life from birth all the way down to death and it's not a happy life. It's one of struggle. It does have its moments though. Yeah yeah there are. There are some moments in this. Yeah so and you mentioned it. It's weird the juxtaposition of the the lively kind of fun feeling music the rollicking you know kinda the pop cords janke pop now with really morose and kinda sad with the subject matter in general but as the songs play will. We'll talk about this but the lyrics once again do not go with the music and a lot of senses and not just the story like not just the concept if you the topic but just the lyrics generally song about the listen to. He uses lines like breathing in boiling butter. That's not a very pop. It's not a poplar that you would expect to hear miley. Cyrus never wrote a song that had breathing and boiled butter in the larry. But i mean as brilliant as these guys are. This was originally a poem that andy partridge wrote called. A numbers called him and so the first two songs summer called and grass are actually written as a two part suite that actually flowed together and so they practiced it is. You'll notice it actually goes into each other. yeah And it's meant to be that way if at first listen you listen to this and you think i'm i'm kind of with jason. I really don't care for this stick with it. Listen to it on your own. This should be Consumed as a full album. As is our favorite way to listen to albums. Yeah and i would encourage everybody to try and get through this one with us. A few have my initial reaction to the first couple of songs. Just just bear with it. Yeah so here we go. This is x. tc's skylark..

"And the band hates it man. They absolutely hate what they're listening to. What is this that we're listening to. You know because it wasn't there in that wasn't what they envisioned if they all of his mastering they had all everything he put into it the arrangements they hit the trump the head everything. They hated everything. Like this is not at all we had mon. So then they become completely unruly and we demand to be done. And he's going to do it. I'm not going to change things. This is out his albums going to be. This is the order of the songs. It's going to be this way like you talk about where he was like. We're not having near god into your rhetoric. Your record company sent me a check in a mandate and i got the cash. The check in i'm gonna follow mandate and that's the end of it. Sorry the ironic thing is years later. They went back and realize that there was a wiring issue when they mastered this in the recording senate very tinny okay and so then they realize the polarity was off who or the channels they reverse the polarity and suddenly. The album sounds incredible. And that's the version that you and our listening to that's the remastered. We're gonna listen to you in so after. Andy partridge being such a dick about all. this stuff. Turns out he was right. He was right. Yeah to be wrong about the arrangements and the order was right about the fact that sounded bet in todd. Rundgren was so adamant about this. That even the record company goes kind of thin and he just quit. He's like fine. You guys finish it. And so they had somebody come in and finish the mastery. That's crazy. yeah they go home to back to swindon. They go back to britain and they start telling her body. That was the worst shit ever. It's going to suck. It's gonna absolute suck. They had a couple of singles that hit and they told her by. This is gonna suck and those singles did flop they did. They didn't go anywhere they didn't know they even tried it in the us But in britain they flopped and they were they were spent. I think they released grass was one of the singles and it just like people change. The channel didn't get yeah In so it wasn't until a believe it was in florida. A college radio station gets grass. That had the b. side of dear god right and goes wow. This is really really out there. We're going to spend this of care about grasp but we'll go ahead and spend besides yeah and so Man they put that in people around the went crazy so they started playing it in like a virus it just kind of took off and what a fantastic thing from that time period though. The b-side is lisa. Because i can remember buying you know. We didn't have enough money for the whole tape. Apia pop on down to your local sound warehouse target and shell out the two or three bucks for the single of the song you wanted and you never knew what was going to be on the other side and sometimes it sucked sometimes. It was great and sometimes you went and bought the album and whatever was on. The b side wasn't on the album. Yeah that's right you know it's like this is. Where did this random song come from. It's like the song ferry just like. Should i had no idea how this worked. But if once again in streaming world that we live in now it's a total concept this idea of the b. side of something that was not good enough or was not it just didn't make the cut for some reason. How's that like there was not good enough but for some reason it didn't make the cut but that they would put it on the b side of a single people. Got to hear it anyway. Just incredible it is an in it if not for that. This album would have been lost. A lost memory completely lost. It is an album that everyone overlooked every. Listen to By the way to know that strawberry fields was a b side. Really i did not know that and i think maybe come together was a beside. Maybe their top ten most popular songs ever were both be a. I saw a list. I wish i'd written down There were some very popular. Besides the good vibrations by the beach. Boys was beside yeah Or it was actually released as a single But that's beside single. Yeah it was between albums so it was even so of course of course. Andrew partridge has to copy the beach boys and beatles with his only hit of the album being besides. Maybe there's a master plan in there somewhere. I mentioned the fact that the radio stations were getting death threats that were getting bomb threats at. That's the best way to make things. Go crazy to threats. Yeah and so the whole no. No publicity is bad publicity and then suddenly they thought todd rundgren was a genius because suddenly they have money and suddenly their record contract was renewed. Suddenly they are all during. And i should know. That's right. yeah they've since broken up they don't they don't play anymore. I've seen some interviews with andy partridge and he's justice. Wacky was just kind of out there. Just a very very strange odd duck. You know Is he a guy from the beach. Boys weird or not quite there gathering. The beach boys was crazy enough. But i think. Andy has a little bit of that. But i mean he. He says he's he's a self professed on the autism spec right so he just sees things in a different way. Sure if you try to reason with someone who is adamant about this one way. I can totally see where he would just think that everybody was against him. That's point yeah. I get where he's coming from. He had a vision. He wanted it to go a certain way. And it just didn't go man once again. If it had gone his way nobody would have given a shit there were known about. Yeah i it's an interesting album. It's one that you probably have never heard of definitely have never heard any of the singles. Unless you've heard dear. God dear god is going to be the last one we come to So what we're going to do is take a little break and when we come back we're going to full spin of the nineteen eighty six album by exte-.

"In the billboard. I would say was a success with that kind of competition right. Yeah absolutely i you. Some of those are albums. That are those bands best albums. yeah and again i. I use the term excess. Eighty s You know everything was to excess. Everything was big. Everything was allowed. I'm big hair smoke on all the videos we videos we were back when we had mtv and we actually listen to video videos like listen to video watch video. We listen to him too. I guess right you're right. I mean that was the time period. Where like th the visuals. Were so important because videos were on all the time. Twenty four seven so yeah so let me deconstruct the amoureux quick just so that we understand who are all on the same page. Here's a track list and the phases of life. It starts with a song called summer's cauldron in that represents the birth of a brand new person and it's even the emerging from the womb but it's also phase with the dawning of a new day with the sun coming up in the crickets chirping and the animals and the birds and the bees and just all the stuff happens are the next song. Is a song called grass in. that represents. Adolescence are kind of youthful trouble. That you get into There's some double entendre there. Where he says talks about the things we did on did on graph so it. It's talking about rolling in the clover and crushing grasp but also there's also that know talking about where smoking weed and right. I can having fun. You have a young adult who now meeting someone at the meeting. Places that album then we start having relationship struggles with a song called. This is a tough one. This is your really super super girl. Yeah which is i will reserve my comments on that song we get there. Okay you see the relationship struggles of a normal mortal who is dating supergirl and he's talking about how she can save the world but she can't save the relationship right you know in so. That's that like young adults stuff that we're starting to struggle with ballet for a rainy day talks about sadness and depression and so when you start breaking up and then we get into full up break up song and that is one thousand umbrellas. Depression young adult anger. We go to season cycles the next song. That's our existential crisis. As a as a young adult it happens quite often earn enough for us. We're dealing with financial issues. And now we're into actual relationship The building blocks of this is going from here. And how does a young couple make enough money to make it. All work out in. That song to me is beatles comes. Oh yeah who put in all the right way then. We have big day which is about getting married huh. We have another satellite. Which is marriage problems. We have mermaid smiles which has financial issues Let's see here. The man who sailed around his sole regular back to this exit crisis in its done so in a really cool Like spy sound with this kind of this like sixties jazz. Kind of like get smart. What reminded me of you know what that's a. That's exactly what the you're you're right. I could not pick could not put my finger on what it was. But it's that kind of yeah it's the sixties james bond sound i then we actually get to a song called dying about facing mortality. The pinot ultimate song is sacrificial bonfire. Where we we're accepting growing old in the fact that we're going to die in an ends with the person dying and on his deathbed minutes before he dies. He has his prayer to god. That is as angry as it can be where he tells them he doesn't believe in him because of all the troubles that he and his lifetime that everything's been that's the cycle of life and then the song ends in Starts all over. yeah. I think it's brilliant. I think it's absolutely brilliant. I i i think it's a it's interesting and we touched on this before but i think it's so interesting that the wrote these songs and if it hadn't been for the producer would have released a completely different album with songs completely different words and it would not be any it would not be what it is it would not be on everybody's list probably i mean it might have had a couple of singles but i mean they only had one single that charted off of this one Yeah yeah. I mean so. They tried a couple of other singles and none of them worked. Oh yeah there's no one will listen to him but again put into the body of this composition for actually makes a lot of sense. It took somebody from outside to come in and take these songs and put him into any kind of meaningful order. That would make this a lasting album. And so i. I just find that so amusing that on their own. This never would have happened but she throw the right guy at it and he gets something to get something. That's going last it goes to the brilliance of todd rundgren. Who if you'd asked me before. I knew his background the history of this i would have gone. Oh god that the meatloaf guy yeah But then you go. That was really actually pretty brilliant because he took thirty or thirty five demo tapes that these got sent him they were just kinda scratch recordings and and found something that they didn't know they had yeah and fought with them the whole time. Let's talk about the recording. Sure the three of them show up at utopia studios in woodstock and from the immediate gecko because rundgren was charged with keeping things on time and keeping things under budget. He and andy partridge fought like cats and dogs. Man just from the get-go half ago. 'cause run girl was prick partridges. An even bigger prick and they would. They were living on the grounds in what they consider to be. Sub housing for them right but they hadn't sold anything like his delusions of grandeur. They thought they were so important. Yeah the sense of entitlement like you guys haven't had a single in years do you think you. Do you think your and they would show up and demand these things and todd rundgren with literally press the control button and go guys. We're not gonna do it that way. That's fantastic so they even they colin moulding even had a comment that you know we we would show up and we would know the songs that we were playing when we'd actually written them like we had no idea what they were and so he'd completely rearranged them he put in string parts he put in a bunch of piano and since he put in a bunch of drum sounds that they listen to and they go. This sounds absolutely terrible and so they fought constantly. Very turbulent recordings. everything was very very contentious. You can hear the anger especially on one thousand umbrellas when you hear almost as mocking tone. Andy partridge has where he's like over renzo virgin just like you know where he just like a little kid right. Yeah that's terrible so they wrapped up todd. Rundgren took the recordings senate out to prairie prince in san francisco. He listened to the songs overdubbed drums in the studio across the continent himself. Which is fascinating to me. Well it is especially in this day and age you can. It's especially now with technology in the last year and a half bands have been recording albums literally across the country from each other on a home recording technology. And man you know emailing her putting the files in dropbox and digital editing this in this. That wasn't the way it was done in the eighty. One the idea that you just take a mixed album senate across the country in some other dude is gonna to mix in the drums and make sure that they that right and then mail it back to you for you to master. That's insane just absolutely crazy and so what happened was the master comes back. They all converge back in utopia studios.

"Prince. He was the drummer for a group called the tubes cube that he actually recorded all his parts were overdubbed. After the after everything was recorded in he was in san francisco and just all recorded at utopia studios in woodstock new york insane. Did that say right just crazy. Yeah hey i think that speaks a lot to collins base plane that he laid down these tracks without thinking about where the rest of the other half of the rhythm section was going to come from and of course he's bay. Styling is more along the lines of somebody. Like getty lee from rush. Who kinda tends to not necessarily play in the pocket with the drummer. But kind of play their own thing. Yeah definitely very riff oriented very melodic in not necessarily A drawback back and play with the drummer guy so it makes more sense. They still hard to imagine. I mean you play bass. Yeah plan without i mean trying to do it without the drummer would be difficult. The rhythm section is the drummer in the bass player. You know i if you're a marching band. The rhythm section is going to be your base horns and drums centric. You've got to have that all the way through. And the basis of part of that. And that's what anchors everything down. So yeah they recorded this without not to belabor the point but it just baffles me that they recorded this album without such those like. They built the house without foundation and done. Everyone plays to a metronome right The these guys recorded an album without a beat and just insane but that also goes to the kind of the insane levels of production that todd rundgren was able to bring to this. And so let's talk about that. So andy partridge has suggested that. He is potentially autistic on the autism spectrum. He suffers from tinnitus which is ringing ears. Yeah to the point. Where i think. He has at least one suicide attempt because he just couldn't take ringing This guy who again had valium as an addiction has suffered from depression man. He's got some purchasers that yet and as we get into this album the way that this is constructed some of these songs you can feel the anger in frustration with just kind of with life in general. It's like this weird existential like a little bit mostly in the lyrics because most of the music is generally british pop. It isn't that interesting is it's really weird. Yeah and once again that takes them the takes them listening to figure that out at the Their record label was virgin records. I it was distributed in the united states by geffen records okay They signed with virgin records in the seventies they had a hit with waiting for nigel and then version was just kind of sitting around waiting for the next hit and they just pro which didn't show up didn't produce anything that they were transitioning between Between punk and this new do wave in and they didn't have a drummer in so finally virgin says in nineteen eighty-five you have to sell seventy thousand records. Otherwise we're dropping you now seventy thousands not a lot of records but they were so flummoxed so frustrated with this group that they thought had so much potential. But we're just so hard to get along with that they gave them a quota of seventy thousand records otherwise they were dropping well. Let's put that in perspective though because you're right to a to a recording act to establish recording act. Seventy thousand records shouldn't be a big deal especially not in the time period when record sales were an actual thing as opposed to streaming now But if you haven't done anything in a while and you're coming out basically coming from nowhere. Seventy thousand records. A lot of records could be if if you're unknown i mean. Sec has they basically been silent now for a little while had been touring which is the foundation of any rock and roll band. So that's that's a lot would be a big uphill battle to climb thank. They were kinda short haircut. He's bald now but he had like a really short short haircut. Which you know that did that didn't fit into the access eighties. Everyone has been call. Molding had this great big weird mullet thing. New wave alternative punk pop band or you guys. Yeah seems like a banker. Did what's going on singing these like songs in the round where they talking about children's nursery rhymes here just like where do these guys fit in. So the record company gives them a mandate. You've got to sell seventy thousand records. And so they give them a list of producers they say you have to choose one of these producers the new producer new everything choose one of these producers and the band sits down which is basically entered partridge sitting down with gregory data colin moulding and telling them the only name that i recognize on this list. That virgin records gave us. Is todd rundgren. So that's literally why they picked him because he was the only name the record the only name that they recognize. That's hilarious now. So they called todd rendering and they said to him. Are you interested in doing this album for ecstasy. And he said you know what. I actually saw them lie time. So he'd seen them in nineteen eighty and like their music Listen to some of their other stuff. It was like. Wow this is really out there like this is the stuff that he could do something with this. This is out there. In so the record company gives him a mandate. You gotta control. Andy partridge he's gonna try to take over. He's gonna try to ruin everything for you. You've got to keep him on task and you can't go over budget because these guys aren't making us any money and we would really like to make some money. Yeah todd rundgren was known as a bit of a kind of a stern okay. I fist when he needed to be had so he says you got it so they signed the guy and now he has to produce an album. So i think that the way this works it may have been through a letter. It may have been through a phone call. I'm not really sure they were in the uk he was in his studios in woodstock new york called utopia studios. They get in contact and he says okay. So what do you have in mind. And they kinda him on like you know. Because they know that they're under the mandate and you take someone who's already upset and someone who's really hard to deal with. Anyway you give him a mandate and suddenly you have someone who just petulant and now you give them a new boss who's going to enforce the mandate and this is a recipe for badness. So he didn't. They didn't have any ideas. I had no idea what they wanna do. They didn't have a name. They just had a bunch of demo tapes. Okay so he says. Send me the demo tapes. He listens to them and he says there's a concept here he starts arranging these songs and listens to them and says you guys have a brilliant concept album here and they didn't get it. They didn't get it at all. They wrote the songs. Colin moulding actually has five songs on the album which is which was different That's more than he had contributed in the past right and in everyone including colin moulding. And andy partridge and rendered will all say we reason he had that many was because todd rundgren absolutely force it through 'cause run like the songs he one of those on the concept. Yeah he he does songs were part those demos part of his vision. They had some songs that were childlike and innocent in an belied this eggs intial crisis with anger in an ended up with this song called dear god. That is one of the most forcibly forceful strong. I don't know how you even characterized the song as much as it is someone who so so angry at religion that You know to put these these songs down in other words down into the songs is just like my goodness. I mean that is so strong. And.

"By my co host jason. Hey how's it going today. We're going back to the excess eighties. And we're going to discuss a very unique concept album by british group. That had such a unique background in composition that it truly is one of a kind and today we are going to dissect nineteen eighty-six hallmark. Eighties album skylark. My ecstasy unique is a very good choice of words for the. It's weird right. It is really about the way. It was built the way that the album was put together. The wait was ridden. Oh yeah well all the all of the pieces to the puzzle and you lose some of this in the intro about bringing in the outside producer who in creamy from wrong here but todd rundgren was famous for producing guys like meatloaf i mean. Yeah right. I mean this right Like seventies cheese rock. Yeah and and i mean no disrespect. That's what it is. I mean i i'll piggyback off it with you. I would mean all disrespect. That's that style of music is awful. Yeah yeah that that that whole it was like suspended chords and kind of like augmented. I mean just like it was just rendered obviously had talent When you brought this album in and we were researching it. And i don't think there's really anything he's ever been associated with before this a good like this be that i probably liked. Yeah yeah i mean that's the guy's got talent but it's an interesting choice for the record company to go. Hey you'd be the right guy for these guys well. It's a funny thing that you say that because todd rundgren Power pop superstar of the seventies in by the way in case. You've never heard todd render. We're not focusing on todd rundgren. But at while i was here i figured i'd go ahead and give you an example. He's a big piece of the puzzle. So he said no he is. I should and here is his most famous song. You've probably heard this song on classic rock radio. I know for sure. Dennis miller used to use this song. At least it did once when i was kid kind of the late eighties when he was coming in the weekend. Update right all right. But this is todd render this phone call. I saw the light from nineteen seventy. Was it this in the johnny cocaine movie below. I seem to remember this being like i could be wrong. Because it's kind of this style. Seventies music all kinds of sounds the same. Sounds like it album actually is a really good help. If you like this style of music you might know this one. yeah just covered induce chills. Oh yeah it's not my at all kinda like just kinda wakey rock But it's pop at. Its whatever it was going on with bell bottom romance and yeah yeah there you go absolutely. It's totally that kind of stuff so once again like really strange choice. Yeah so let's let's talk about todd. Rundgren real quick Just so we can kind of be done with it. He did have. That breakout album that we just played from that was something anything from nineteen seventy two He had that song. I saw the light in. Hello it's me. The two songs that i just played albany also had a song in nineteen ninety-three that was pretty big called bang the drum all day. That's all yeah absolutely a complete whipping of song of whipping of a whipping of weapon yet. And i would even go so far as to say that. His production techniques were really overdone. Look for what for what i like. Music it just seemed like it was way over done. Sure i agree with that completely. But let's talk about the album's because he he was a pop star but he was really more well known as a record producer right His record you might not know that well but you mentioned meatloaf out of hell right. Which is that with. Jim stein and like it or love it or hate it. I would say hate it for me but it was a very very very popular album. I'd say what if i'm planning cornerstones for the for the seventies. I'm probably gonna make that a cornerstone because sure sure especially if that that genre which was so ubiquitously kind of think i may have lowered their ubiquitously piteously. So popular true really. Harnessing some of the drama kid type music That bad of hell the way it was composed and the way it was written by meat loaf in jim steinem lineman. Yeah the whole thing is like his whole persona was really theatrical theatre. Type stuff when you. I remember being a kid and like seeing the cover for bat. Outta hell's what is this is this is this is this is this is. This is going to be amazing. And then he gets on a terrible. What is happening. is that a piano. What is going on. He also did bad fingers straight up in in grand funk railroad's wearing american band sing along groovy says rock and roll off you. All three of those are huge in the seventies. Absolutely so as he transitioned out of the early success that he had As being actual performer in the end started getting into where he was actually doing production He was pretty well known as as a guy that could come in. And just kinda sav problems In do so very inventively and for cheaply in that's where we come with ecstasy ecstasy a quick brief history of of this ban there from swindon the the west country of england. And so i if you are in london and you turn your boat towards the southwest. You're looking at swindon. So you're on the thames. Obviously if you for some reason you were to drive swindon you would go through brixton. And that's where david bowie was from. Oh okay In these guys of ecstasy from swindon they spoke with west country. English accent if you want to know about west country english this is what the pirates spoke in so normally when we when we try to fake an english accent we always drop the ours right from from britain. We are in there but on the in if it has cau- of dropped are out in the west country they overdo the are so a pirate. Are they talking over there. And if you listen really close to the way that these s pronounced this. It's very rural very country. And so it's it's Considered kind of crude and a lot of these guys from this area. They would try to drop that accent really. Yeah that's interesting. I didn't know that. I x t c from swindon They were part of the seventies punk scene that they were really one of the The bands that really hit big especially in the uk. And they transitioned into the new wave movement right They were known for a very lively stage performance. Very very upbeat. Lots of energy around. Yeah there were four people in the band at one time. The singer the brilliant. The kind of the brain of everything is andy. Partridge and i don't know if you've if you've figured out through your your investigation of ecstasy. But andy partridge is a wacky fucking. Yeah yeah yeah. It seems like he was a terrible really part person to be in. A band was really hard young with asthma. Matter of fact he started a a decade-long valium addiction that he started off in nineteen eighty-four in part of his addiction to valium in his depression. Because of that they just stopped performing really. Yeah they didn't they stop being alive ban for while it they do. They start before we live in. Well i mean that happens. There's always the guy that just couldn't perform anymore for one reason. Another the begins stuck doing it but that's from a band that kind of made their name being alive ban. That's a that's a heart heartbreak to take it sure is But it's interesting that it happened that way so if if you think about bands that were huge that perform big and everyone loved And they stopped performing live..

Good jemmy button was a universal favourite but likewise passionate. The expression of his face at one showed his nice disposition. He was mary and often laughed and was remarkably sympathetic with anyone in pain. When the water was rough. I was often little seasick. And he used to come to me and say plaintive voice poor poor fellow but the notion after his aquatic life of a man being seasick was too ludicrous and he was generally obliged to turn on one side to hide smile or laugh and then would repeat his poor poor fellow. He was a patriotic disposition. And he liked to praise his own tribe and country in which he truly said they were quote plenty of trees and he abused all of the other tribes he. Stoutly declared that there was no devil in his land. Jimmy was short thick and fat but vain of his personal appearance. He used to wear gloves. His hair was neatly cut and he was distressed. His well-polished dirtied he was fond of admiring himself in a looking glass and faced little indian boy from the rio negro whom we had for some months on board soon perceive this and use to mocking jemmy. Who was always rather jealous of the attention paid. This little boy did not at all like this and used to say with a rather contemptuous. Twist of his head too much skylark. It seems yet. Wonderful to me when i think over all his many good qualities that he should have been of the same race and doubtless partaken of the same character with the miserable degraded savages when we first met here. Lastly foggia basket was a nice modest reserved young girl with a rather pleasing but sometimes sell expression and very quick learning anything especially languages this. She showed in picking up some portuguese and spanish. When left shore for only a short time at rio de janeiro monte video and inter knowledge of english york minster was very jealous of any attention paid to her for it was clear. He determined to marry her as soon as they settled onshore. Although all three could both speak and understand a good deal of english it was singularly difficult to obtain much information from them. Concerning the habits of their countrymen this was partly owing to their apparent difficulty in understanding the simplest alternative. Everyone accustomed to very young. Children knows how seldom one can get an answer. Even so simple a question as whether thing is black or white the idea of black or white seems ultimately to fill their minds so it was.

"Most without equal for this recipe you will need one each skylark thrush quayle ortolan lapping. Golden plover partridge woodcock. -til guinea hen guinea fowl. Wild duck red pheasant. Wild goose boostered and fake pecker pluck and got the birds then stuff the smallest bird into the next smallest birds cavity and so on until you have one neutron star of bird meet paraphrased from seventeenth century cookbook and you thought her duck in was a new thing. My name's moxy. And this is your brain on facts. Two days after this episode drops. It is thanksgiving in the united states and the supporters at patriot. Dot com slash. Your brain on facts voted to go. Turkey talk today. So let's go through the myths and misconceptions by working our way through a painting an odd choice as this is an audio only medium. Certainly luckily we don't have to pick just one painting. Most paintings depicting the first thanksgiving in giant air quotes of sixteen twenty. One contain the same things about of puritan settlers dressed in austere black clothing. With bright metal buckles gathered around a table laden with food. Maybe the family patriarch is offering a prayer and a small group of native americans can be seen in the background. Maybe one or two in the foreground. If i were to show you jennie. Augusta browns combs. The first thanksgiving or the first thanksgiving by louise jerome farris painted within a year of each other in the early twentieth century. Incidentally you'd say oh. Yeah that was in my history book which year all of them probably. That's how we've been taught to think of historical thanksgiving's but we're not school kids anymore. So it's time to update that image paintings of the first thanksgiving referred to that feast in sixteen twenty one in plymouth massachusetts. What we actually know about the feast. Concretely is very limited. It mostly comes from a single letter. Written by a communist named edward winslow two hundred and twenty years later in eighteen forty one. His letter was published in chronicles. Of the pilgrim fathers by boston writer and publisher alexander young and it was young. Who called the gathering. The first thanksgiving even though the word thanksgiving doesn't appear anywhere in winslow's letter that feast wouldn't have been thanksgiving to the pilgrims. Puritans did observe thanksgiving days after fortunate events like a good harvest. The were religious observances. People spent the day in church often in silent prayer and they fasted rather than feasted. It's almost the polar opposite of the way we celebrate thanksgiving today. So that day wasn't thanksgiving and it wasn't even the first for a few reasons for starters. It didn't happen a second time. Let alone annually. So it can hardly be said to be the first of anything it would take more than two hundred years for an autumn. Feast referred to as thanksgiving too widely proliferate second. It wasn't the first meal shared by europeans and native americans in the new world. A reasonable drive from my home here in. Virginia is the berkeley plantation where a thanksgiving feast was held this one by the europeans alone. Three dozen settlers arrived in the chesapeake bay in sixteen nineteen on a ship. Captain by a man who had survived the winter of sixteen o nine in the jamestown colony a winter referred to as the starving time after a rough two and a half months at sea and another week on inland waterways. They finally arrived at berkeley hundred later called berkeley plantation on december fourth. They disembarked assembled a meal. From what shifts rations. They still had ham and wasters probably and said prayers of thanksgiving. It was declared that their arrival must be yearly and perpetually kept holy as a day of thanksgiving to almighty god end so it was for two whole years in march of sixteen twenty two. The poyton having noticed that the settlers weren't leaving and in fact were expanding their territory and kept trying to convert and civilize them attacked berkeley and other settlements killing over three hundred fair playboys if you ask historians in maine they'll tell you the first. Such meal happened not in sixteen twenty one in massachusetts but in sixteen. O seven in papa main. The popham colony barely lasted a year. Thanks to a fire in their storehouse during the particularly harsh winter and miscalculations like staying in a four right on the shore rather than moving inland where the forest could provide a windbreak.

There are so many things about a trial that can seize public imagination tense cross examinations the nation's you want answers. I think i'm entitled to handle the truth. Slam dunk expert testimonies. There is is no way that these tire marks were made by sixty four buick skylark. These marks were made by a nineteen sixty. Three pontiac tempest stunning courtroom confessions me shoot him through the door but with the draw in this particular case was the sympathetic defendant maurice the rooster maurice didn't take the stand but he was at at the center of this case. Maria was accused by the neighbors making too much noise in the morning so they took maurice's owner carinthia so to court and demanded that she shut him up well today. Fesso and maurice emerged victorious. The court declared that maurice can continue to crow oh and ordered the plaintiffs to pay about a thousand dollars per so told local tv that she's relieved g invicta thumbs.
