Mom gets multiple performance venues. I'm join remotely be assumed by Sean called in managing director of the San Francisco war memorial Performing Arts Center. Thanks for being here John. I would like to begin. And by having you share with us a little bit about the war memorial and Performing Arts Center. I think for most San Francisco people. They walked by it there a McAllister and Venice across from City Hall and they're like, oh it's a month old building. So it would be great if you could get a share or Memorial and how the memorial and Performing Arts Center work with Arts and Cultural organizations to say, we're just go. Oh absolutely. Thanks for having us on George excited to be here today. The San Francisco war memorial and Performing Arts Center is in the heart of San Francisco, right across Van Ness Avenue San from San Francisco City Hall. We have a number of performer venues here including Davies Symphony Hall the War Memorial Opera House and then inside the Veterans building. We have the Herbst theater. There was a center for Opera which hosts both the Toby Atrium theater and the Brian Crain station studio. And we also have a really fabulous event space called The Green Room all in all we can host over 7,000 patrons any given evening and pre covid-19 do that with juice. The ballet performing alongside the symphony San Francisco performances being in Herbst theater all that could happen in one night. So we're both a home for culture and art in San Francisco as well as a huge economic driver for the region. We've been here since nineteen thirty-two. Our resident company is the San Francisco Ballet the San Francisco Opera the San Francisco Symphony and then San Francisco performances, of course is off the primary users of the Herbst theater, and we've had a long partnership with them as well. So I think that we're one of the cornerstones of cultural activity in San Francisco and really proud to be a department of the city county of San Francisco and then fun fact a historical the charger for the was actually signed their trips theater. That's correct. All of the plenary sessions took place in the Opera House. The UN Charter was signed off stage of what was then the veterans Auditorium, which is now known as the Herbst theater and the Japanese peace Accord was also negotiated in the opera house. So we're really big site for history. A lot of folks don't understand wage. Why UN Plaza is called UN Plaza, but it's called UN Plaza because indeed the charter was signed here and for a brief period they actually almost put the headquarters of the United Nations here in San Francisco before they decided to place them in New York. Yeah, we host a lot of history here and still continue to provide a meeting space to Veterans groups and a number of other non-profits working on behalf of veterans causes here in San Francisco. So

Connecting The Dots {Part 1 of 3}

"Hello my friends. Welcome to your meditation practiced today and today I'm bringing something. Perhaps perhaps counterintuitive to the moment and I hope incredibly useful to the moment so perhaps you have noticed like I have bad my days feel like they have a new mental rhythm to them in this time of Cova. Nineteen I find myself in the sort of cyclical all consuming thoughts that take the shape of very intense planning so for me very often. My thoughts sort of cycle through. What kind of schoolwork or am I creating for my children win? Am I going to get my work done? When is my partner going to get his work done? Where will we work within the house? When are we going to eat? What are we going to eat? who do I need to call and check on? I should probably start making a list. Dot Dot died. Repeat Repeat Repeat and for others that I've talked with. They too are noticing a new way of thinking. And although it's not like mine. It is similar in that it feels cyclical and all consuming. And maybe those thoughts go. Oh my God. I can't deal with us. I need to lay down. I can't make another decision. I don't know the answer. Somebody decide for me. Somebody tell me what to do. And both of these responses are completely natural and innate stress responses so they're totally normal right. Both this idea of I'm going to obsessively and even aggressively plan as a way to try and take control of this moment or I'm going to shut down completely. Throw my hands up in the air. And completely disengage because it's too stressful to do otherwise both of these mechanisms keep us trapped. They keep us trapped in our thoughts and stuck living only in our actual heads as if there was no body but me Beneath these giant brains of ours right just ahead and up here things get very tight they get very small they very narrow and there is no joy here and so. I brought an invitation for us today. An invitation to remember and appreciate beauty in this moment and before. I go too deeply into it. Let me just say this this is not to diminish your experience of this pandemic. This is not to shame or suggest you are doing anything wrong by feeling something other than happy. It's not to create the appearance that meditation somehow takes the stress away. And you won't feel anything joy in this moment I can tell you for a fact. That's not true and and I believe that we have to keep living in this moment. There are these memes right now. Going around I really struggle with them one of the ones. I've seen recently as like a dumpster on fire with the with the word. Twenty twenty under it as if this whole year should just be written off in thrown away. It's not that I don't understand that sentiment. Certainly I do. This is a brutal year for us and we only get this one wild and precious life to quote Mary. Oliver and I'm not about to dump a whole year into the garbage and I don't want you to do the same. So today we're going to awaken the census or going to awaken our sense of awe and reacquaint ourselves with beauty. I was reminded recently that one of the things that makes us uniquely human is first our capacity capacity for curiosity and second our capacity to feel two seemingly conflicting emotions in the exact same moment. Yes this is a painful moment. Yes this is a scary moment and beauty still exists here. The weather's been beautiful recently. Right Gorgeous here and as I've been out on walks in our neighborhood I have seen. I WANNA say every single house near me people outside gardening raking trimming the lawns. Maybe mulching just getting their hands in the dirt and certainly. I'm sure it's because some people are bored being at home and have the time. And there's something inherently beautiful about working with the earth. There's something worth savoring. In that moment. As I walked yesterday I listened to a podcast about astronomy the birth and the death of stars and I could feel myself almost wanting to weep with the expansiveness of that discussion. The reminder of something so much bigger and grander than this one moment we find ourselves stuck in and I was reminded of perhaps one of my all time favorite teaching stories and I know many of you have heard me share the story before and I hope that you find it. It's worth repeating so this story is actually a social science experiment that the Washington Post put on a little over a decade ago and they decided to put a violinist down in the DC metro station. Subway station at morning rush-hour. They were curious to see how many people would stop and listen to beautiful music when they were on their way to work but they didn't put just anybody down there. They put Joshua Bell Down There. Who's perhaps one of the most famous and well regarded villainous of our times and he was playing his multimillion dollar violin. He played three of the most difficult pieces of violinists can play the night before he even sold out the Boston Symphony Hall at over one hundred dollars a ticket and so down into the subway station he went morning rush-hour Autoweek Day and he played for forty five minutes. Something like a little over a thousand people walked by and seven people stopped seven. None of whom stopped for more than two minutes. The question posed in this experiment was win. We are on our way somewhere when we have plans. Can we appreciate beauty? And I think the answer must be yes. We must find a way to appreciate beauty. If we want our lives to have a sense of fullness to them and so we're going to awaken our senses in today's practice. This is the formal practice and maybe feels a little small or little insignificant just to connect into sound and sight and taste touch. But it's this practice. Our trust in these practices begin to unfold in our day to day moments so that we can be out for a walk and the scent of spring in the air or we can be stuck on our ten thousand conference call of the day and appreciate the daylight streaming through the window. Sometimes when we awaken our senses and meditation practice. What we feel isn't necessarily joyful. Sometimes we might feel pain. Fear sadness and learning to let it be allows us to save her are censorial experiences. If we're quick to shut one down were quick to shut them all down. So let's sit today and if you need to cry you cry if you need to laugh laugh if you need to smack the floor and rage than you do that too and we trust that. We have the capacity to hold conflicting emotions in the same moment we can feel rage and appreciate beauty. We can feel stress. Fear heartbreak and appreciate beauty.

"Pretty young made all up in everybody's business. It's her brother three-year-old Thomas Dimic do right. Come on come on. Don't be a Dick. He's too late. He's been addict for one hundred and fifty years he's arrested. He's charged with the murder of Henry. Ben Haon it turns out. Thomas dimming is a straight up shit is like the detective or like is this an act. You're so stupid it doesn't make sense. We can barely talk to you kind of baffled by how dumb he is He tells police. He rented room twenty-one because he has a book business and he was going to do his book business in a rooming house room for the weekend. Everyone knows you book business in a different kind of room. Yeah that's the cops like. Come on we know maybe more permanent room officer. Some the cops are like dummy. You're longing for doing what did you do? And then he says okay. I don't WanNa tell you because I'm married. I rented that room so I could have an affair with a woman from San Jose named dimples. A dog dimple simple. No okay. Don't like these theology. Humor Cares so oh later on I did find in the older and kind of More thorough book that it said in that book that her name was Timkin's not dimples butt. Dimples is so much better. Yeah that I think we need to stick with that. So when the case goes to trial the prosecution shows that Thomas Deming had recently bought sign at the flask found by Henry matched the one that he was known to carry and that Henry had recently out of the blue in writing job for a bookseller even though he wasn't a good writer or smart and his own friend testified at this trial. Saying like yeah. Henry told me he got a job writing and I do super confused and it seemed to release suspicious and I was upset and it's it was theorized by the prosecution that this was. How got a sample of? Henry's writing to forge the letters where he confessed to the murder of his own sister. After all of that proof the jury is hopelessly deadlocked seven voting for acquittal five for conviction so dimming returns to jail to a new trial and then the State Supreme Court grants Dr Bowers a new trial and then dimming gets acquitted and then eight months after that in August of eighteen. Eighty nine the. Da Dismisses the murder case against Dr Bowers in the light of the outcome of the dimming casing it will be impossible now to get a conviction so he dr J. Milton bowers walks free from jail. And you know that mother does to San Jose. Yeah he does any Mary's Miss Bird there. Someone named Miss Bird. One thousand nine years later he dies in one thousand nine five Misburg. Miss Bird remained alive so apparently they had charm as they always say as they say in the medical field and the last line of Gary cameras article he wrote and so the mystery of the phosphorus and brighter. Dr Bowers will never be solved until tonight fucking did it. And that's the story of DR J. Milton bowers thank you the special. Thank you to San Jose California for being there really to hit on that one it turns out that the more we talk shit on your city. The more likely. We're going to bring Paul Holes there like we did for Sacramento on Friday. The sorry he's not here Stephen. He's at home with Stephen taking care of the WHO. I've never heard that somehow. I know it's insane. I'm GonNa need that website waste. Ww Dot wikipedia Dot net dot com or dot Gov dot edu okay Let's escape from Alcatraz everyone Stevens screwed up. Didn't forgot that I called this one last week. Then Karen called it the other night and he forgot and told her she could do it and then texting it was like. I told her she could do it. Waited for me to go okay. I'll do something else and I was like. Tell her she can't. It's only fair. It's sadly I was in the middle of watching a Clint Eastwood movie escape from Alcatraz and I was just like I just wanted to talk through this movie people but so please feel free to interject it anytime with Shit. I'm leaving out. Okay got incomes. I didn't watch the film escape. From Alcatraz let's dramatized versions right. Yeah so who knows? Let me give you get a little bit of history. Seventy-five Spanish explorer something. Something does place Sandwich. Yes I jail. Alcatraz meaning island of the Pelicans oh overtime official name became Alcatraz and they'll Akin Alcatraz Pelican so in one thousand nine hundred nine. What was the fortress became demolish? That had been there. A prison was built and the prisoner is not a fucking build it. What a bummer. Lock me up right as they put in the last brick. Okay get in dinner themselves in. Oh bricked up. We don't WanNa make a solitary confinement. He we have an open floor plan and escape from Alcatraz was considered impossible so the US government turned it into a federal penitentiary for penetentiary civilians. Convex that they thought was especially dangerous. Of course so normally the only exit routes were death or the Infirmary. Pass Pass or getting out. I guess getting released where their fire exits so until its closing in nineteen sixty three. There were only fourteen escape attempts from thirty six different prisoners. Twenty-three were caught six. Were shot dead two round and the remaining five are thought to have drowned either in the bay or swept out to sea but there's also of course the prisons most legendary escape made famous in the film. Let Clint Eastwood Nineteen. Seventy nine film escape from Alcatraz. Let's talk about that and that's not the one we're going to talk about tonight. True what it was a big lead at this guy. Eric really pisses me who right. So let's start with Frank. Lee Morris was born in Washington. Dc In September nineteen twenty six. He's abandoned by his mother and father during his childhood his own orphan by the time eleven spends most of his formative years in foster homes. He's convicted is first crime. Thirteen by his late teens. He'd been arrested for crimes ranging from narcotics possession to armed robbery. Wow Super Bummer. He spends let's see. He spends most of his early years in jail serving lunch to prisoners. So he's like a lunch man that's nice and love of food and Hussein and SLOP SLOP and ladles. He just loved to ladle those ladles. God I love beef. Stroganoff and a ladle take a little sips from it. Zips for me sips for you. That's right okay. As he got older he got arrested for Grand Larceny in Miami Beach Time in Florida and Georgia and then escaped and then he escaped from the Louisiana State Penitentiary. While serving ten years for bank robbery. He was recaptured. A year later while committing another burglary and sent to Alcatraz in nineteen sixty this can do though ranked in the top two percent of the general population in intelligence with an I q of One hundred and thirty three. Whoa I q one hundred thirty. Three nowadays is only five hundred. Sixty two you don't want to be anywhere near those people. Read your mind and steal your Wallet Ship Initiative. So then there's clearance and John England England brothers England for. That's not a thing that's fun. So clearance was thirty. Three and John was thirty two. They were born into family of thirteen children. Georgia sure too many children. I humble opinion. Their parents were seasonal farmworkers and in the early nineteen forties. They moved the family to ask in Florida. Twenty miles south of Tampa. Okay every June. They go here their care about this family at all. It's kind of whatever but the brothers were like inseparable. They were a year apart so there was hanging out and shit they were skilled swimmers of course and they would be able to swim. The freezing lakes of Lake Michigan as I still floated at the surface okay or shadowing or shadowing a great sign for those two right and I bet like back then. Richest musclebound jokers. I sound fun. There were muscular and they always love to shake their finger interface criminals so they they were farmers and Laborers Clarence was. I caught breaking into a service station when he was fourteen and began robbing banks as a team in the early nineteen.

"Good evening evening. My fellow citizens tonight. I want to speak to you. Nightside. Let's get ready. Good evening everybody and welcome on into a very rainy fall like night early. Fall like night here in New England in Massachusetts in Medford Massachusetts right outside of Boston. My name is Dan Rae. The host of nightside era. Brooks is in the studio behind the the room behind the glass. He's the producer this program when you call in at six hundred seven two five four ten thirty or triple eight nine two nine ten thirty. You'd be talking with rob. What are we gonna do tonight? We're going to talk about I think in some form or fashion. Three subjects. We are gonna talk in this first hour about the sentence imposed today on comedian Bill. Cosby talk about that in a moment. A little bit. Later on tonight, depending upon how interested you are in the Cosby matter, we will talk about the president's speech in front of the United Nations today, and how that speech was treated not only by the delegates. But also by the American news media, and we will talk about the latest later on tonight. We expect the latest on the Cavanaugh nomination hearings which are still scheduled for Thursday. It would appear that whatever's going to happen Thursdays going to happen Thursday. Because now Chuck Grassley his scheduled a committee vote for Friday. And that of course, would be the penultimate step towards a final vote in the Senate either to confirm or not to confirm the nomination, Brad Kavanagh. So we'll get to all of that. But I'd like to start off with the sentencing Bill Cosby today in a Pennsylvania courtroom. In the spirit of full disclosure. I had the opportunity to get to know Bill. Cosby a little bit. Certainly not one would consider a close, personal friend. But someone who. Who have had on this program on several occasions and had the opportunity to introduce him twice. I two audiences one in Boston at Boston symphony hall and the second time north of the city of the north shore music theatre both times found him to be a gentleman, obviously the circumstances for which he was sentenced today would would would suggest that he was not a gentleman in all circumstances to say, the least it was as I watched that. We've all watched I guess celebrities of some form or fashion be sentenced thought, it was particularly pathetic sight. He's eighty one years old now and. I guess legally blind. Clearly a man who is well beyond his prime and the allegations that were made against him by upwards of sixty women. Some five dozen women have come forward. I think all of you are familiar with the allegations that he would use some form of drugs to spike, women's drinks. And then have his way. And the one case that did not fall outside the statute of limitations is the case. That he was convicted of a an administrator temple university were Bill Cosby went named Andrea Constand brought charges against him before incidents that occurred in two thousand and four sort of an interesting background to the case. Apparently at one point she won a. A a a civil settlement with Cosby. I think it's been quoted about three point four million dollars very difficult to put a value on on anything. Like that. But that's what we do in this country in civil cases. We put a value on what the individual the plaintiff in the case it suffered and Cosby apparently participated in a in a deposition with an agreement from the prior district attorney. That there would be no criminal prosecution. Brought forward based upon anything that he would say in the deposition make a long story short. There was a contested district attorney's fight in that part of Pennsylvania. As I understand it and the district attorney who had made the agreement with Cosby lost and the district attorney who made it an issue in the campaign. One charges were brought there was a hung jury in the trial that ended. He was February of two thousand sixteen. So this has been going on for some time. He was retried. There was. Different different pieces of evidence, which we're allowed so-called incidents. So prior bad acts which were allowed in the second trial, and he was convicted in April and sentenced today to three to ten years, essentially for drugging and then sexually assaulting Andrea Constand who spoke yesterday as a victim and said that she just hoped that Justice would be done Bill. Cosby did not speak before his sentencing today. Although apparently. Just moments after he was sentenced as the courtroom was being cleared before he was formally taken into custody. Apparently, according to one article here, he was laughing and joking with his defense team. I it's much more serious situation. And that now his his spokesperson fella named Andrew. Wyatt. Following the sentence. Went after the media, the judge and the prosecutors calling this prosecution, quote, the most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States. I don't necessarily agree with that. He also said. According to CNN, the Cosby was doing well because he knows these are all lies, they persecuted Jesus. And look what happened. I'm not saying Mr. Cosby's Jesus, but we know what this country has done to black men for centuries on the other side of the the aisle. If you will Gloria Allred who is always at these hearings. Whether she represents a client or not. Said we're glad that judgment day has finally come for Mr. Cosby, Mr. Cosby show, no remorse, and there's been no Justice for many of the accusers who were barred from court by the arbitrary time limits imposed by the statute of limitations can both of those statements somewhat hyperbolic, but certainly one by Cosby's. Press. Flack was I think much more hyperbolic there aren't statute of limitations do exist. They're not necessarily arbitrary their their their limitations that have been approved by legislatures and there is a purpose for the concept of statue of limitations. We won't talk about that tonight, though, if you want to bring it up, we will what I'd like to hear from you is your reaction to the sentence. The Bill Cosby received three to ten years taking into consideration his age his infirmity his defense lawyers asked for home confinement. I personally don't think that was really ever possible. Once the once the jury came back with the guilty verdict three to ten years, that's a significant sentence. Very significant sentence, particularly for someone who is eighty. Eighty one years of age and legally blind. But I just want open up. I want to hear particularly from women on this one men as well. But I want to hear from women Cosby is said to be the first celebrity who has gone to prison for what he did during the era of the metoo movement. I would suspect that Harvey Weinstein watch that sentencing procedure today with a with a keanae because there there will be others. You know, the number six one seven two five four ten thirty triple eight nine two nine ten thirty lots of questions flowing through my mind. I mean, how could someone like Bill Cosby who I assume was met by fawning fans wherever he went why did he feel that he needed to resort to to this type of behavior to this type of action? What a pleasure would he get out of this? I don't know. It's difficult difficult to reconcile the individual that I met on a couple of occasions and spoke with on the phone on several occasions with the individual who was presented an prosecuted in that Pennsylvania courtroom six one seven two five four ten thirty triple eight nine to nine hundred thirty. We will have added right after this very brief commercial break..

It's just it's just after it's done and after it's left to the world, I just leave it to other people to decide. And then I kinda step back of course, obviously, music is in your top three in your priorities in life, I must assume it's still number one. Is there a song that you can just recall that even to this day when you when you hear it image ago, this was my life changer. This is a song that kinda changed from we all have the songs. What is yours? Well, I mean, I was lucky enough on my last record stages which is a music musical theater record the to kind of. Some of those songs I, I was fortunate enough to sing, you know, songs like finishing the hat from Sunday in the park with George and somewhere over the rainbow. These are things that when I was a kid like I just I would like myself, I remember seeing them. I was hugely inspired by Paul Simon growing up because he was somebody who is a singer songwriter who brought world music elements into his music and really kind of blur John a away that made me say, oh, that's allowed. That's that's okay to do that. And so, yeah, couple of songs song, the boxer pulse. I'm in its own funny, seven. Boxer. Heard that. I think just to. Stories seldom too. Yeah, you're having much Carfax typing dart. Sorry. It funny how you still hear a song this? Yes, it takes. You takes you to that place? It does. It really does a meander, the streets, Brooklyn, and eat crumbs off the floor. I don't know. What was that album you did? It was it was all live performance as I think it was with the Boston philharmonic orchestra I have worked with them. There was one tanglewood. I did something tangle with them and then I, and then I did a concert at symphony hall in Boston. The one you perform, I think with staying and some other arguing, that's that's right with Chris Bodey and staying. We did shape of my heart together as a as a duet that was that was sting was another big influence on me. I love staying, and by the way, one of the nicest guys you'll go nice. We have interviews cool and ageless and just like his pop up, like I'll be thing. Somebody like sting is here and couldn't possibly Rex. These insane notes like after like four martinis and I just as a vocalist who takes an hour to warm up. I always jealous of the fact that pops it up the thing about the stings of the world. And we've met everyone in this business. He is so well established around for so long when he shows up to an interview. He just shows up. There's no one with him. He just took a cab. Oh, yeah. Last time he was I have seen sting on the subway. I've just with him and I was too afraid to go up and say, I just left him alone, but I just I saw him on the subway like just last year. Well, Josh, I, I know you don't like it when people say things like this, but there are artists who do everything they can to perform you. I mean that I asked, I do a lot of asking. When they say yes, it's, it's always a, it's always a nice surprise when somebody says said, no. Well, there there have been scheduling conflicts. There's been times where like where you know there's something I wanted to on stage or something. You know the new song album and somebody will be like on tour at that time or something. But I, I have to say, I haven't very, very fortunate that most have been yeses in your music actually has reduced me to tears. Oh, Elvis, thank you.
