"smokey robinson" Discussed on Animal Radio
"You found us, it is animal radio. This is where we celebrate the connection with our pets. We have gift ideas for the holidays. We have people that just love animals, celebrities, and the GP alike. That stands for general public alike. Because we all love our animals. If you're listening now, we probably all love our animals. In fact, I would say over the last 18 years that we've been doing this show. We've never, ever had anyone on that really didn't like their animals. With the exception of Smokey Robinson. Well, he just didn't have any animals. He was not an animal lover. But he's just not an animal person. No, he wasn't. But it was nice to have him on the show anyway. Yeah. But ever since the big Smokey Robinson interview, we actually vet our celebrities now, make sure that they like animals first. Yes, that's correct. That is for coming on the show. And the mayor of attleboro, Massachusetts. He loves himself some animals. In fact, his dog a wolfhound. He's taken across the country on a road trip. We'll explain why in just a few minutes right here on animal radio, he is our guest. And he has been vetted. And it's hard to believe he's immuno politician. I'll just say that right now. Lori, what are you working on for this hour? Well, I think this is great news, so I wanted to share it with you is that the FDA, the Food and Drug Administration arm of the government is proposing some changes to the way they handle research, a certain kind of research on dogs. And this is such a big change because they're actually proposing that at the very end of the research instead of disposing of euthanizing the dogs. Is that what you're doing? Instead of that? That's a hard area for me to go to. So what they are proposing with this new research method is that the animals be adopted at the end of the study and they actually would never be infected with a disease that they're trying to study. So there's a lot of little things on this, but I want to share it with you because your help is needed. The FDA is looking for public comment. So we'll tell you how to become involved. It's exciting to see the FDA doing something positive like this. And it really is. And there's so much such a research. I think you say the word research and people think horrible things and pins being stuck into animals, but there's a lot that we gain from studying how things affect animals in developing new drugs for them, but also for ourselves. So it's a really important thing for us to address and to look at. And that's a really good point, doctor Tempe is because this kind of research that we're going to tell you more about is research that is done on dog drugs for dogs. Okay, that's on the way in just a few minutes when we check news with Lori Brooks. Let's go to the phones for your calls first. Hi, Janice. How are you? I have a question for you about my Jack Russell terrier. Okay. She's a wonderful little dog. She's in great health. Almost four years old, but she sheds incessantly. And every other person I've talked to that has a Jack Russell, has the same problem. Is there anything I can do to eliminate some of the shedding? Well, I feel your pain because I have labradors, and they are one of the breeds that are the worst. You know, like somebody told me to put dish oil on our food and I just don't want to do something like that without getting me okay from a vet. Absolutely. Good advice right there. As far as and can I ask, is there anything actively wrong with her as far as her skin? Is she dry or you're just looking for some shedding help? That's it. Okay, good. Good. And what's her name? Her name is candy. Yeah, my husband and I are truck drivers and she rides with us. He's been with us on the truck first. We're going to have years now. Wonderful. The queen of the truck. Well, yes, I will have some suggestions for you for candy. And the great recommendations when it comes to general hair and skin coat things. There's not a magic here, as much as we want a fix for the shedding problem. Don't believe the hype don't believe any product that says we're going to stop shedding. Because shedding is natural for every breed of dog, we see it less with some braids and more with other breeds such as the labradors or the short haired breeds the terriers. So what I do recommend is a good, fatty acid supplement. And we know that in dogs, fatty acids can help improve the luster of the coat and the health of the hair coat they don't really stop that shed cycle and nothing really does nor should it stop that. So some of the simple things is, yes, we can use fish oils as a supplement. And there's good ones, and there's not so good ones. So some chips I'd have for you for that, making that decision would be we want to find good sources of pure fish oil. So it's more than just putting some flaxseed oil or cod liver oil. Those aren't going to be the best choices for what we want to do for a pet skin. So we look for fish oils that are rich in what we call EPA and DHA. You don't have to remember that. Just remember we want to find good purified fish oil. So important for people and for pets, we want to find fish oil that is mercury free, so you want to read the label. This is where buying something a little bit more expensive might be well worth it. So we want to make sure it doesn't have those kind of toxins in there. But yeah, I'd say fish oils and there's some good veterinary line ones. At my office, I use one called icosa derm, and I really like that because it is mercury free. And my dog's coat looks better. And the Vegas area that is so dry. So I really do think that makes a difference. But some other things you probably already had people tell you as far as with shedding will be good old brushing and vacuuming, whether you vacuum your pet or the environment. But definitely get that. Yeah. But the vacuum on the truck, I've got tape rollers. Yeah. Anything you can do to get that hair out, brushing. As far as the firms, the shedding blades, all of those are really good things. So, but the bad news is, yes, there is an easy fix to this problem. So I usually kind of get. I think we'll keep her.

"smokey robinson" Discussed on Time for an Awakening
"They also propagate misinformation to prevent us from seeing our truth, like the Willy Linden, for example, that those who believe that William lynch, those who see it really are unknown in the agent working for the system of white supremacy. Because when black people accept the Willie lynch as being truth, it damages us because it creates a false reason to doubt ourselves to our ability to come together. You've heard it black person, you don't exist, you might forget that, you know, we live. So we find false narratives, but we must, we must fight against all these false audio. You know, it's by design. Like whenever black people come together and inform it that we're now in, it's not unlikely to have people call in and start talking crap while black people, black people, which should be a lot of people in crap. But we are the only people on the planet who systematically denigrates ourselves. They say when the oppressed has been perpetually demoralized, they then start demoralizing themselves. Black people are also the only people who say things like what bring your black ass in this house. Hit your nap to hit out here. Your big lip pool, we put down ourselves. And but the worst part is we've normalized everything. But there's nothing normal to about our collective state. There is nothing normal that is black people to see about themselves of the worst enemy and reverse Weiss is part of our political history to the contrary. This is a social science. When you have hair the fact I want anyone to do what I'm about to say is you can dispute a call in. Challenge you. Here's your hidden reality that black people live on white dominance right now. Here's our hidden reality. Here's a scenario why to keep their foot on our neck. Here's the reason why. While all the all white nations processes and quality for all of their citizens, they are all secretly unrealistically committed towards the preservation of their white balance. It's also an immense fear of massive unified black retribution that exists among those white nations that have been brutally oppressive for Africans for more than 400 years as well as growth to exploit Africa's natural resources for 400 years. Now, this is the scenario of the people who control our Americans. Now, what it is what they did, they recognize that whenever people are all pressed for long terms, this is what they discovered in 1960s. They didn't have to hold us in together. But then it's discovered that whatever people are oppressed for a long duration that collective aggression is for what the oppressors will continue to grow until acts of massive unified rebellion becomes inevitable. This is an inherent part of human society. The oppressed always always eventually rebellions. Always. The fact that 400 years in which children the situation without rebellion is proof and film that they have deployed psychological warfare against us. Well, because we see the problem is this, that we have rebelled, we have resisted, but let me thing is, is that we wanted them to be nicer to us. We wanted them to share with us. We didn't rebel to be liberated. We didn't rebel to put them down so we could, you know, so we can live our lives as African people, we wanted to be what they are. That's like, that's why I have an issue with us calling ourselves black. And I know people use it interchangeably. You know, in fact, that was part of our discussion this past Monday with bubba Rudy because I played this piece that was on deaf poetry about 15 more years ago with Smokey Robinson. Robinson says, I love being black. You know, I love the word black. You know, I'm a black American. I love being American. You know? And I'm not an African. You know? In fact, if you say you were an African American, if you go to Africa, all you would be, as he said, is a black American taking up space, you know? Because we're not funny about that. Black people say that we're not Africans but we're black. We don't realize what we're doing to ourselves. If there's a tree and you remove the roots of a tree, that tree is more susceptible to being blown over in a storm because it doesn't have that strong rooted foundation. Right. And it will die. If it's not rooted, likewise had a people off from their two roots, those people can be easily manipulated easily control so when we cut ourselves off from Africa, we are cutting on top from our foundation of who truly are. And we also lose our numerical advantage. In the world, there are more black people than the caucasians. So by keeping us divided benefits of white supremacy. I think the ultimate situation for it we black people exist. All of our narratives are controlled by those who are benefited when we are demoralized, divided and sealed uploading. Because this condition makes you pressing easier to control. All my narratives come from those who benefit from a taking care of by ourselves. And because we were born in this system, we need to think about it. The white man's control of a narrative allows him to even divide the black nuclear family at the most personal and intimate levels, like what a black man believes about black women collectively, he gets from the white man. What a black woman believes by the black man nationally. He's also got to white men. This allows the white man to control how black men and black women proceed each other. If a U.S. example, if you gave a black woman a suit, she had a paper. And he said, write down 20 things that black men are known for. He's a little say things the link put on paying the debts. They'll take you to the children, irresponsible, they have all these long narratives about black men. And what's also connected to those narratives is the one that white men teach you better. White women. And when you go to the narrative that the black man gets about the black woman, all those also come from the white sources. And what it comes to that narrative is that white women are more supportive towards their men. More supportive. So we're currently being bombarded with propaganda, as I said earlier, that exhausts and exonerates caucasians and that marginalized vilifies and did a great job. And we are now functioning based on those narratives. That's the white man's power. I mean, that's his power. He weaponized he weaponized his control over.

"You know? So this is the piece, and I heard this. When it aired on death poetry on HBO's death poetry, I heard it. I heard it. And it left me feeling some kind of way, man. You know? Yeah. Oh, it left me feeling some kind of way too. Yeah. Because, I mean, I like smoke. I know entertainers had them putting my faith in entertainers in terms of being conscious. But when he was insistent, you know, and so forth, it kind of left me some kind of way, man. So we're going to play this thing on smokey here and I want the brothers and sisters. And you give us, of course, I will want your perspective on this and then of course the brothers and sisters can chime in. This is dev poetry. About 18 years ago, and it is being introduced by most death. And let's check it out. The poet, she please give it up for Smokey Robinson. I love being black. I love being called black. I love being in America. I love being a black American. But as a black man in this country, I think is a shame that every few years we get a change of name. Since I was four ships arrived here from Africa, it came across the sea. There were already black men in this country who were free. And as for those who came over on those trouble, both they were called nigga and slave and told what to do and how to behave. And then mass has started tripping, doing his midnight tipping down to the slave shacks, where he forced he and great great grandma to be together. And a great, great grandpa protested. He got tired and feathered. And at the same time, the black men in the country who were free were meeting with the tribes, like the Apache and the Cherokee. And as a result of all that, we are afraid of every shade. And is this late day and age, you can be sure, they need too many of us in this country whose bloodline is pure. But according to a geological geographical genealogy study published in Time Magazine,.

"Dionne Warwick, Smokey Robinson. Everyone singing the same song. As happens every week on the show, subject to change What host Patrick Bryant calls pat nauseam he picks apart. One song has been covered by a cornucopia of artists. Music he finds on his 15,000 albums or at websites like Secondhand songs. And Patrick Brian joins us. Welcome. Thank you so much for having me. How did you come up with this? I think part of boredom in being somewhat contrarian. I spent a lot of time in thrift record stores. And I would just buy up these cheap $1 records of sixties celebrities or folks and I would notice the same song. And just became fascinated by the idea of a song being just covered by this multitude of people from, you know, Andy Williams, Dusty Springfield, Johnny Mathis, Isaac Hayes and the like. Well, and by the way, we should say You're a union lawyer. Uh, in your 9 to 5 job, God bless college radio stations where you can do something like this, And we also want to say that this song, which is it's just iconic was written by the grave. The legendary songwriting team Berg back rack held David 1962. Recorded later that year for the first time by Chuck Jackson. Later, Tommy Hunt. So Dusty Springfield's version was already a cover. Are you surprised by things like that findings like that? I thought that song just came right out of the gate a hit. It's interesting of the time and part of why I'm so fascinated is you would have the same song covered by many different artists, sometimes competing with each other. To try and see if it would click with any particular one. So, for instance, that song was recorded with Chuck Jackson first, and they didn't like his vocals, so they substituted Tommy Hunt. Using his vocals released it, It went nowhere. Dusty meets back rack encourages her to cover that song. And then she does it, and suddenly, people are listening to dusty. Well, first here, Chuck Jackson,.

Remember that commercial But Dad, it's smoky. Yes, well, and that's all you really need to say. Any given moment. It's by the way. Sorry. Either way, there was a point over the holiday break when I actually had to tell that story to my kids about that commercial like stairs and know that they laughed about it. And the good just like my imitation went to YouTube. Polly found it. Oh, the commercial, and by the way, you'll be heartened to know that it's exactly as you remember, dude, get in this car with the beard saying my son used to my dad used to say, son, Turn that radio down, and then he shuts the door and leans out his witnesses. And I'd say, but Dad It's smoky. Right a time. I didn't know the hell Smokey Robinson was. I was just waiting for the Brady was just a good ad. Yeah. Later I find out he's one of the greatest in the history of American music. Even right down to his Chanukah bombs, right? You go sure, But anyway, the point being is that I said, because I'm watching staff and as it turned out to be, I tweeted this out last night. I said, Hey, Not 2020 ones off to a pretty good start when Alex Smith clinches a playoff spot the same night step scores 62 Polly two Best guys. Hiller's in Barea. Last 20 years for you, Ronnie Lott Post. Ronnie Lott that Yes, guys go Well said yes. Yes. Just pillars of exemplary behavior, like on the field on the court, and off like both of those guys are just two examples of just particularly fine human beings. There you go, man. Like Ronnie's applauding somewhere, right? Yes. Yes, By the way, Speaking of Ronnie applauding, I was so glad you brought that to my attention that after the Murph in Mackey's, he was giving some love to the replay of the Bobby running coming together. Yes. Yes, Ronnie. Frickin lot is out here saluting the Bob were Murph in Mac, and he said something like, Yeah, Bob those ball to you. You could talk ball to remember that. Yeah, but more important before we get to this cut here from the Warriors last night. Did you see the link I sent you there. The T sound like Oh, hold on. No, I haven't yet. Okay, then the wait wait till the next commercial break. I distract. You know, I haven't seen you okay? I'm on it. I'm on it Well, last night was one of those nights were just joy exploded all over the Bay area when Steph Curry announced his return to your brain with 62 points, his career high By the way, that's right, Cope said. You know, off the top of your head his career high going into that game? Yes, if that's right, he did not If you would put a gun to my head and said, What steps career high? I don't know that I knew the number. It was 54. But I think he did that a couple times. I think I knew he did. I think, he said, By the way, once six times he has crested 50, but never or seven times but had never passed. 54. This actually gets to one of my points is One of the reasons why, and it really may be the number one reason why is because they during that run, they've been blowing out so many teams. He would just go to the bench. Hey, wouldn't play the fourth quarters, and here's my theory going forward here go that this year. I'm gonna be so much more. There's really no blow outs. There would be much more competitive games. In fact, last night's game was not a blowout. No, it was still like within 8 to 9 10 points for most of the game, you're going to be dependent on stuff, so I think we might see more of this. You probably right. He's gonna be playing more games deeper than he used to. So go, Steph go right. 62 is only the beginning is what I'm saying. I'm looking for 70 is what I'm looking at. Well, well, here's curry from last night, And this is this is the point of the whole thing is the Lillard comments on Friday, which I honest to goodness. I mean, in terms of smack talk, it was not the most like simulating smack talk. It was first all Dame village and incredibly cool guy. He's an intelligent guy. He's very measured. He's not a D. He's not out at strip clubs. We all live Damon. He's great dude. He's one of the most exciting players out there to watch in the MBA, and like you said Great Street creds from Oakland and just the ball into the net. Prettier off a dame Lillard bomb than almost anybody else. Gorgeous yet? No doubt, man. Gorgeous game? Yeah, actually has out shots. Stef from distance in the last five years Like he has a He has a fart. No joke. Statistically, he shoots it better from farther. Don't remember. I think it was just this last of going into the postseason down in the bubble didn't hit like a 45 quarter toe. Send them into the postseason. Remember that like, yeah. I think you're right. If you hit from way downtown at the buzzer, and that's what got them into the tournament trucks. It's so beautiful, but his comments Friday night of a house steps not going to get us many looks and how it's gonna be harder for him. This year was enough to send infuriate media to a lot of people buried Channing Frye of ESPN Comport. He chimed in and said, Yeah, It's not that he said something about steps legacy how it's going to affect steps legacy. This is all that was needed to produce step from last night. And here's step saying, Yeah, he heard it all the Jordan name right? Take all that person just they You know, opportunity to kind of a certain my will on the game early and try toe create some energy. And, uh, you know, get off the right foot. I think we Crazy sounds after the game. All we really want to do is win the first quarter and take it from there. And obviously, that's what we did think continuing my man's home. And, uh, yeah, Guy we gotta win experience. We just gotta figure out how to do it consistently, and against the good teams. Nobody gets going testes. That beautiful cut, Beautiful cut. It's just great here and stuffs voice and you know you could hear like he was. Yeah, I take it personally. I take it personally. Here is a cue The Jordan me. I did hear that.

How? Yeah. He had to play him or because the game was closer. Which means you're gonna get more stuff, right? Well, we put him in, you know, a minute early. We like to keep him out till the six minute mark, And obviously, Portland was making a great push. So we put him in. I think that the seven minute mark and I was hoping we could, you know, maybe get him out with a few minutes left. If we could extend the lead and get him some rest because we play tomorrow, But obviously Portland Stayed in it, so we we just kept kept stuff out there, and he just He kept knocking down shots and free throws and, uh, basically closed the game. With his offensive performance. Yeah, and father have at the free throw thing ending at 80. Yeah. Finally missed. I know. Yeah. Somebody had a theory that when he scored on that one, a pounded the floor so hard with his right hand. That it might have affected his free throw because he could you Why did you hear that?

I just couldn't get in the gross helps eight needs today. Everybody everybody gets real excited when I say Berry Gordy but he wasn't as well known at that time but smokey actually knew who he was because smokey you look at the hit parade magazine that was out in that magazine actually had Lee had the lyrics listed of the song as well as the song writer or writers and he has seen Mr Gordie's name down there so he was oh boy. You know I'm getting opportunity to see this famous guy well. I must admit admit I had never heard of Mr. I guess really sheltered or something and I've thought who is is because smoking was so excited he he was like oh so at the end of that. Mr Gordy said he'd like to work with us on February nineteenth nineteen fifty eight miracle. I I single gotTa job was released in nineteen sixty. The song shop around became motown's first million seller that same year Motown L. Founder Berry GORDY stored on Claudette Robinson the official title of quote First Lady of motown into quote born Claudette Rogers in New Orleans. She was bright and adventurous like many contemporary. She developed her talent in the sanctuary. The family moved to Detroit Royd was she excelled academically with honors and graduated from Commerce High School at the age of fifteen. She attended Wayne State University through a sophomore year here.

He's saying we quote without two miracles. There will be no motown and of quote. Ah Recently Robinson was in Austin Texas to participate in the summit on race in America and the opening of the Grammy Museum's new exhibit motown the sound L. of young America Roberson said down with them Black America for this exclusive interview born in New Orleans. You all moved to Detroit. Actually I moved to Detroit. When I was eight years old? I was living with my grandmother at the time and she passed away and my mom came for me because I was actually living doing with my grandmother at the time and we moved to Detroit on the west side of Detroit us now going back in the day in Detroit. Well you know when your kid everything is wonderful and amazing first of all I saw snow for the first time and it was a lot of fun you know because now I was with my brother I had two older step sisters and my stepsisters would take me like like to the Tigers Games 'cause one. She was just so fascinated and excited until she took me with her. All the time. I think that was one of the ways that she could get out because I don't think she was supposed to be dating so she took me as the excuse you know put the miracles together well. The miracles came together or my brother had a group which consisted of smokey Bobby Ronnie and Pete and the guys had a group firstly we the chimes chimes five times and they became the matadors will when my brother was a matador I actually formed a group of five girls and that group was matador aretz prior to that when my brother was an orchid I had a group called the orchestra so whatever you did I kinda followed his is legal. My brother decided nothing was happening with the show business stuff so he decided to join the army as a result the guys used to always practice in in our basement to rehearse in all of that so I heard all the songs and after my brother was gone a great audition came an opportunity for an audition in came about and it was absolutely fascinating you know and that maybe you get an opportunity to be able to record and as a result smokey asked me would I go to the audition with them as their fifth member and I said yes and that the idea and when we got there and rehearsed the gentleman that was auditioning us. I'm sorry I don't like I don't really like the group he didn't see say it just like that but it meant that what he wanted actually at that time he wanted smokey and I'd be like a dual and the duo would have been just he and I see and forgetting the guys Mickey and Sylvia were real popular at the time and so therefore that's what they wanted that's so he wanted will of course we weren't GonNa leave the guys of course I was knew I wasn't really a part of their group yet and we we just kind of you know the guys especially. We're so so very very disappointed because they thought this was their one opportunity. They're going to get a recording contract. Well there was a gentleman walking around and that gentleman said do you have any more of those songs and smokey spoke up and he said yes he said how many said one hundred rid so we said well. Can I hear some of those so when the piano and we started singing and performing not very much performing mainly he just singing and re. I'm laughing because I actually was in my United States. Marine Corps a uniform. I was in the reserves reserves and I was you know it was that time of the day so it was coming from our basic practice and went to the audition and you know after all that happened and then this gentleman asking us to sing he listened very very patiently very repatirated. Every song has to have a beginning a middle and end so that you know how to write property can't be all over over the place and because we went to the audition singing five original songs and after that occurred you know when we saying the gentleman introduces himself and he said my name is Berry Gordy today. Everybody gets real excited when I say AH Berry Gordy but he wasn't as well known at that time but smoke he actually knew who he was because smoking you look at the hit parade magazine Zine that was out in that magazine actually had had the lyrics listed of the song as well as the song writer or writers and and he has seen Mr Gordie's name down there so he was like Oh boy you know I'm getting an opportunity to see this famous guy I must i I had never heard of Mr. I guess really sheltered or something and I thought who is because smokey was so excited excited. He was like Oh so at the end of that. Mister Gordy said he'd like to work with us so I was you know I'm new to the group so I I don't know include me or not and as as we kept talking to him then I found out later more about him and and his family is family was really well recognized around Detroit. You know they had so many entrepreneurship businesses. They had a a printing company. They had a record company. They had yes. They have construction. They also so had Mrs Gordy senior was well into the insurance business so they were really really entrepreneurs long before leaving her. Yes yes and there were eight children. Mr Gordon being a child number seven which always that's that's a pretty lucky number so we started working with him. Of course this year is that particular year was nineteen fifty seven so Mr Gordon was saying that we needed record so our first record that was released was February nineteenth nineteen fifty eight which coincidentally is bobby and smokey's birthdays and you know same same day same year same everything same hospital as well as they actually found out later an hour apart and they met fourteen years later uh well as story went on this is now nineteen fifty eight but there is no motown yet that had not occurred and and when we see that magnificent wonderful royalty check three dollars a nineteenth since it was like Oh my God you know. Is this this this what happens with showbusiness how you ever GonNa make are you going to ever have a home or an apartment or any of the above and smokey suggested to Mr Gordy that you know maybe you should have your own record company because we certainly could not do any worse yeah and that was kind of like the start a we had had prior to that a two record deal with the record label which was our I song gotTa Job can then after that we had a two record deal with chess records of and the thing is I don't recall with the royalty check was from wound gigantic. No no it was never gigantic. Unfortunately well well as as time you know went by motown itself which is now sixty years was started January twelfth nineteen nineteen fifty nine and would made that something remarkable as far as having a company Mr Gordon Gordon what had not only have thought that we should definitely have our own record our own whatever and and so the song for that became we recorded Chaperon my mother call she said Eh on you growing up now pretty soon new take awry and then she said

I thought the performances were really top knots. I thought they were very well produced. They were colorful, they were labyrinth was a lot of, you know, really, you know, beautiful choreography, you know, there were couple of moments. I think people were sort of scratching their heads. Like Jennifer Lopez, you know, sort of presence in the Motown sixtieth anniversary tributes. You know, she got a lot more singing time than smokey Robinson. Who was you know, one of the architects of the Motown's found, but I think Casey muss grades was fantastic. Cardi B was really fun. Boys over about his truck Sawhill speak. In terms of of them stepping into that kind of Barras in line last year about how women needs to step up. I mean, I think the producers and CBS really took to heart the controversy and really looked at their program and thought about these issues I wanna play something from do aletha who won best new artist. She was making a reference to comments made last year by academy president Neo Poh now. Oh my God. I don't even know what speaking I guess where I wanted to begin by saying. How on and I am to be nominated alongside so many incredible female artists, the fizz, I guess this really stepped up. So that is Mirroring what Neil porno said about women stepping up. So they're two things that are at issue here. One is who is allowed and invited to perform their show and the second is who actually goes home with a hardware. So if you're to look at who actually was nominated who won Grammys does it feel like some progress is being made on that front. Even if the performers were actually more Representative of the industry. Yeah. I can't really give credit to the Grammys organization for that. Because it's it's the voting body and the voting body is is working musicians and engineers and mixers producers songwriters, you know. So so it's really what they feel are our songs on the albums that most resonated this year. I think Casey most grades winning album of the year is a great example of how an artist really transcend, John RAs, I love country music with everything that I am. And I'm very proud to be able to get to share my version of that with the world. Thank you for supporting that joke, the embraced by, you know, not just an American audience, but global audience who, you know, probably a lot of them wouldn't call themselves country music fans. So I think that was a big win. And I think childish Gambino winning for this is America, which is such a provocative. You know, in politically charged song was another example of the voting body really embracing something that is different that is not pop-oriented. That wasn't you know, like a major radio hit, you know, all of these things come into play. And and I think things are changing, you know, look -lution sorta like steering battleship. It doesn't happen overnight. But I see signs of abroad or more inclusive Grammy organization than the feature were you think about kind of how wide net the Grammy's and the Grammy voters are casting. You look at Casey most graves, even though the k pop. Bam BTO's did not win. There were certainly a big presence. Does it feel like the definition of what is Grammy worthy is becoming a little bit more broad now. Well, I think there's always been this conflict between Grammys as a TV show and Grammy's as, you know, a music awards ceremony, and you really have to balance those two things, and I think for CBS, which which airs the show their priority is really just making sure that people tune in and that they get the youngest demo possible. You know, Camille at the Belo is odd. Obviously very much of that generation and BTS which has very very energetic fan base. That's why they were toes into present. I mean, they were only nominated for best reporting package and they didn't win. So, you know, been of a stretch to have them there. But that's not to say that people weren't like in excited. Just to see you know, what is the biggest Cape fans in the world. So it's a mix of all those things, you know. I mean, I think it'll be more interesting to see how other awards shows sort of pit after the Grammy's, and the fact that that really took, you know, a much broader more pop Centric Roop of artists to perform were you think about the people who won not only the broadcast Ramon. But earlier was there a specific award that really gratified you and conversely was there one person who didn't win who really wish might have. I think the gratifying win was Saint Vincent winning with Jeff. Antonoff just to incredible artists. You know, I was really thrilled that to aletha one for for best new artist and for electricity, which is just an amazing amazing song really one of the greatest songs of the last year in terms of surprises. I mean, I I mean the little surprise that some of the artists coming in with so many nominations like Drake really didn't walk away with a whole hell of a lot. But I will shout out to one amazing female mastering engineer, which is Emily Lazar. She won four for mastering for Beck's album, and she has been at this for like, you know, twenty years really at the top of her name. And she's the first woman, you know, mastering engineer to win a Grammy of the stature. So really really thrilled about that. To know when it comes to representation women come up very short as producers and as engineer so that was a very special win,
Grammy Awards: Performances, winners, highlights
"I will say this about the about the about the Grammys. It was long. I mean long it started at seven. And it ended at a quarter to eleven. Oh, yeah. That's yeah. That's really long. Yeah. And you the know you had your e. Red carpet, which I think started around noon. The get gets Seacrest out there. And there's you know, they're they're out there for three hours before the before the show so long. It was a long long night for all the people who were there. The overall. I mean, like I said earlier the Grammy's really is. Not like other award shows in that they're mostly concerned with the performances not so much, you know, the awards themselves. They only hand out a few awards during during the Grammy's mostly it's about. It's about the performances and there were there was a ton of performances on the on the show. Some were good some weren't. Like, I said for me the best performance of the night. With brandy Carlisle. Who I really like a lot. And I thought her I thought she gave the best performance. And and of course, you had you had your tributes there. Diana Ross turned seventy five and she did she did your basic Diana Ross over the top performance. And. Herger grants her grandson introduced her and he's nine and he's got like an incredible head of hair. He was he was real. He was really he was really very very funny this kid, and then there was a tribute to Dolly Parton, which was great because Dolly Parton. That's that's the one that. I I really wanna go back and watch. Yeah. It's it's you definitely should because. Between her and Cyrus working together. And then. Her singing the song called red shoes? I just you know, I mean, I love I love Dolly Parton. She's she's phenomenal. So but overall, I I mean, I did think it was way too long. And you know, they were cutting their speeches. Who people would get up there? And when they're when they're award, and then they were just like really blasting the music and cutting the speeches. Which at that point. It's like at this point man, the show is like four and a half hours long. But are we? What are you? What are you worried about the speeches for so? But yeah, I mean here are some of the winters are, you know, some of these winners are were surprising. I think. So like, for instance, record of the year went to this is America by childish Gambino, which I'm thrilled about because I love childish Gambino. But Donald Glover wasn't there. That was the that was the disappointing thing. It was like, you know, they want some major awards. One record of the year and run one song of the year. So those are two major major awards Donald Glover wasn't there. So this is America one song of the year at one record of the year album of the year went to golden hour by Casey muss graves. Who I was not very familiar with. But she's good. Best new artist went to do a leaper best solo pop solo performance went to JoAnne. Where do you think you're going by lady Gaga? Best pop duo or group performance went to shallow by lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, by the way, lady Gaga's performance was weird. I mean, she's she is a bit of a weird. Performer in general. But. It was very intense and crazy. She was wearing a weird civil know like a glittery jumpsuit and making all kinds of weird faces and stuff, and I just was I was the little I was a little confounded by her by your performance. And I really liked the song. I mean, obviously shallows a terrific song. And it's probably going to win an Oscar and a couple of weeks for her. But yeah, she and Bradley Cooper got the got the award for best pop duo or group performance. Best pop album went to sweetener by our 'Grande, Ariana GRANDE day, best rock performance with when bad. Does goodbye. Chris cornell. Chris cornell. How did he have a backlog of of new material is that what the deal is? That's that's got to be. Yeah. What happened there? Yeah. Well deserved. Well. Yeah. Mean he was the best deserved. Best rock song went to miss education. By Saint Vincent. Best rock album from the fires by Greta van fleet. Best alternative music album was colors by Beck. Best R&_B performance best part by her. Best urban contemporary album. Everything is loved by the Carter's best Rb album her by her. Best rap performance. Kings, dead Kendrick Lamar. And bubbling, by Anderson pock, or pack Anderson pack. Best rap song to God's plan by Drake. Best rap album went to invasion of privacy by Cardi B. So I have a question for you. Would you truly consider Drake a rapper? Yeah. I just feel like he just talks over. Yeah. No. He's a rapper. He's a rapper has never. I just never hear wrapping when I compared to like, I get he's different in an hands down mad respect to him for being different standing out everything. I just compared to everything else that's out there. I just never think. It's. And he's Canadian. Oh, wow. So best music video went to this is America, childish Gambino, man. Donald Glover, man. Yeah. When in some serious stuff that video rules. It was awesome. Yeah. Or the song is amazing to chose Gambino. Hey, you know, weird Al yankovic wanna wanna Grammy? That's that's too now for squeeze box the complete works of weird Al yankovic, which is best boxed or special limited edition package. So at one for the packaging. Yeah. I like that. Yankovic? What was it was it last year was the first time you want one? Two years who years ago, but it, but it took that long. Yeah. How did how did weird Al not? How did he not have a granny? I have no idea. How does he have a room full of Grammy's? So I don't know. You know, you know, they get so many weird categories. This is the thing about the Grammys is that there's like seven thousand awards they only hand out about six of them on the show, but there's like a million awards here. Best compilation soundtrack for visual media. What that went to the greatest showman. Best soundtrack for visual media, Black Panther. That one has my vote, but I'm a marvel fan. Yeah. You know, the music the music for Black Panthers. Great. I think you know, what for all those marvel movies? The scores have been awesome. Yeah. Just really outstanding. Let's see best country song went to space cowboy Casey muss graves. I'm assuming that's not the. It's not the Steve Miller song. I would I would imagine. Best traditional pop vocal album. My way by Willie Nelson. Best country duo group performance. Dan shea with tequila. So the the those guys performed those guys performed last night. Did they? Yeah. And I don't even know. I like, here's here's another thing. Whenever I watched the Grammys or or like music awards and stuff, especially the MTV, which I don't even try to watch anymore. The MTV video music awards because I feel like I'm one hundred and six years old. I have no idea who anybody is. Like when I was watching. I was watching the Grammy's last night. I'm like, I have no idea that is I've never heard this song before in my life. Deli part partner, Diana Ross word Sam smokey Robinson. I knew that. But yeah, you know, a lot of a lot of the stuff. That's like, you know, younger. I don't I dunno. Shawn Mendez guy. He was okay. He performed I believe he performed again. I think that was also with Miley Cyrus. Yeah. It was that was what Miley Cyrus to. She was all over the place last night. I try to be as open minded as possible. But I just do. I just like for the most part. I just kind of sit on my couch, and I don't I don't recognize anybody. I don't know who these people are so three one two nine eight one seven two hundred is the phone number if you'd like to to join us. If you watched what did you think what did you guys think of the the ceremony? What did you guys think of? Of the performances because there were a lot of performances. Let's see best is ain't got bluegrass. You've got traditional blues guy won the blues is alive. And well. Best spoken word album. Jimmy Carter Jimmy Carter got himself a Grammy. Best music film. How is that? When did that become a category? I don't know. But I like it best music film. And I don't see. Wait a minute. I feel like Bowie's Quincy. From Quincy jumps before before. I heard that. I just would have gone with bohemian rhapsody. But yeah. Say. So. Yeah. And then also last night were the Bastas. Those are the British film awards. They were handed out as well at the same time. But I ended up watching the Grammys ex. I basically forgotten that the Baptist were. We're we're being handed out. That's why Bradley Cooper wasn't at the Grammys. Someone lady Gaga got up to to accept their award for their group or
