JFK Impersonator Vaughn Meader: Death of a Career
Yeah. We have time for one final question in the late. Fall of nineteen sixty two one of president John F Kennedy's closest advisers are third Schlesinger junior was driving in his car. When all of a sudden he heard the following question. Come over the airwaves. James offer. A familiar voice answered. Well, I think they're pretty good. I don't see why person of the Jewish faith copy president of the United States. I know as a Catholic. I could never vote far. But. His confusion was cleared up. When he learned the voice belonged to Kennedy impersonator von meter, but Schlessinger was concerned enough that when he returned to the White House. He drafted a memorandum to the president. He wrote the following this raises the question of what in hell, president of the United States ought to do about mimicry. I'm guessing many of you have never heard of on meter but for one brief shining moment. Okay. Twelve month period between late nineteen sixty two in late nineteen sixty three. He was a really big deal. He had this parody album called the first family a spoof of the Kennedys in old video clips, he looks like a distant Kennedy cousin young cling cut with thick head of hair. And his JFK impression is uncannily. Just listen day will be nuclear javelin, followed by the UN bond issue in a matter of the trade agreement. Now, I there is a most important Mattis. Settle the gall yours was the chicken salad and coffee. That's a dollar forty. Well in five weeks this album has broken all records in history of the recording business it so get this three and a quarter million copies and five weeks. It's my fair lady album five years to sell that many that was late night king of his day. Jack Parr marveling at the popularity of this one of them and the star of the album von meter was just about everywhere until all of a sudden he wasn't from Dallas, Texas. The flash apparently official president Kennedy died at one PM central standard time. I'm morocco. And this is mobile jewelries. This moment. JFK impersonator Vaughn, meter November. Twenty second nineteen sixty three death of a career. Reporting. Across the street from this building. I had no idea. I thought it was maybe some NSA storage. People. The CBS news archives. Hey, it's John. That's Joe he he's managed the CBS archives for twenty two years. Now, he's the go-to guy. If you need anything that was shot by CBS news during the twenty first twentieth century, even the nineteenth. First thing we have is eight from eighteen ninety seven and that's mckinlay's inauguration kidding. Let's go to the back. We're going to the Voltaire. It sounds. It. Sounds very mysterious. Smells, like pastrami or something. So you're correct on that know what night is that's films. Sometimes all right. Let's go this way. What are CBS's so greatest hats? Well, the thing that people ask for most is the assassination president Kennedy that seems to be a story that fascinates people from being right up until today. People asked for at least once a week and for good reason that horrible day in November nineteen sixty three ended the president's life and change the life of the nation. That's what Mr. oaks taught us in high school that was America before the assassination and America after and before comedian von meter was a household name. So surely, the CBS archives would have something on the man, my friend, Joe did not disappoint three tapes of von meter interview sounds promising because that's unless those tapes are super short. That's a significant interview. I think it's a it's a good find. And so I took a look. But what I saw in her wasn't exactly funny. So it looked like, you know, I could do this forever. There was no end the pot of gold with. There was no ramo. Either was had no idea. It was going to be that monster. Vaughn meter in nineteen ninety eight on these tapes. He looks haggard and shake him sixty two years old, but a rough sixty two this was all recorded for short-lived CBS cable network called ion people meter was being profiled as part of a where they now type series little of this footage made it to air. I was born in Waterville the night of the flood. Abbott? Von meter was born in nineteen thirty six in Waterville, Maine, and by all accounts had a heroin childhood his father, drowned when he was one and his young mother moved from Maine to Boston to work as a cocktail waitress meter had to shuttle between Maine and Massachusetts for much of his youth spending. Some of that time in children's homes. He says he started entertaining people to avoid punishment when he got into trouble near the end of high school. His mother was institutionalized and meter ran away to the army. He ultimately was stationed in Germany where he met the first of his four wives and played in a band after his time in the service. He did a risque piano act around the New York City area and then moved onto Greenwich Village where he honed a politically themed comedy routine. It was at this point that he dropped his first name Abbott came von meter, and then one fateful night avoids came out of meter. It was the president of the United States. John F Kennedy. Yes, sir. When when are we going to send a man to the mall whenever Mr. Goldwater wants to go? Starting to reserve. The last ten minutes of his team for an impression of Kennedys live television, press conferences, my name is Bob Booker. I've just been in the entertainment business, all my life. And I've been very lucky also forgets to turn off my phone if it's in gig pick it up. Back in the nineteen sixties. Bob Booker was a disc jockey who along with his partner. Earl Dowd wanted to capitalize on the fascination with the new president as well as the popularity of comedy albums. These were the days of stand free Burke Shelley Berman Nichols. In may and the great Bob Newhart who had just won album of the year at the Grammys a first for a comedy album that classic bit with Newhart as president Lincoln's press agent still holds up. I. I get it. The guy. So we were looking for the next thing to do like, you know, so we could have a meal the next day. We said, you know, Kennedy make a great album, what was your concept for this album. You've got this giant star. He's a movie star. He's a political star. He's he's a world star. My got such a good looking man with this beautiful wife. Right. We said if you take this character and the family and put them in everyday situations. That's funny. This was the beginning of what would become the first family album. The only problem was they had no idea who could play the hand of this first family that is until they turned on the TV the evening of July third nineteen sixty two. No. But he's from the new school and served his apprenticeship in the little clubs that feature. You know, the topic comedians that kids with the ri- offbeat comments on life today. Does that really sound familiar? It's Jim Backus, aka Mr. Magoo, aka Thurston, Howell third from Gilligan's island. He was hosting a summer replacement show called talent scouts on CBS. And I know. I know you're going to be delighted with the TV debut of Mr. von meter. Started off with his take on the news headlines of the day. One might be a little more familiar to you congressman read right of Alabama was quoted as saying literacy tests ain't proven nothing. Listen, I have no idea. How funny fresh is topical stuff. Actually was there's that old quote from playwright. Georgia's Kaufman satire is what closes on Saturday night. But he's impression of Kennedy was and is nothing short of sensational. Doing my gestures. And he's using my lines. Do not what this country can do for you. One of my original lines. When he did Kennedy. It was perfect. Absolutely perfect. Bob Booker, and Earl Dowd had found their man. But there was something else striking about that performance. Kind of. Disclaimer he needed the end of his star making routine something I can't imagine any comic doing today. I'd like to make one final statement at this time. And I would like to make that final statement as myself bun meter, and that is to say, thank you the United States. They country where it is possible for a young comedian like myself to come out on television before millions of people and kit. It's leading citizens. Thank you. Very interesting to me because he was to me noncontroversial. I wanted to get the perspective of a modern day, presidential impersonator. I decide how big my failures are. And they're the biggest weight. Anthony, atomic he impersonates President Donald Trump. Most recently on comedy central's, the president show. I wonder if that caution was sort of to to say, listen, I'm making fun with him not of him. This is a telegram that right after von meter maid is television debut. He wrote a telegram the White House. He wrote this president. Yeah. Dear Mr President. I respectfully call your attention to the town scouts show, which we taped last night for viewing on CBS television, Tuesday night, July third at ten PM. I am personally did you. But I did it with great affection and respect hope it meets with your approval, respectfully Van Meter. That is while we actually went through eleven I think turn downs. Booker endowed had their concept their Kennedy and a demo of the album. No one was biting though, Booker remembers one meeting at ABC in the room. That was Jim Haggerty. Who was the vice president of news and a former White House press secretary under Eisenhower Kennedy's predecessor, he said. I think the communists will love it. I think Russia will love it and every coming this country in the world will love it. And he slammed the door by going up. He was outraged. Right. We were just insulting the president and his family. It was not a man with a great sense of humor. Mr. It doesn't sound like it. But to keep you any doubt. Did you for a moment? Go point. Maybe this is disrespectful. Maybe we shouldn't do it. This was place them for twelve. That would been thrown into street of guy. Didn't discourage us at all. We knew we had hit record. I would bet anything on it. We did bet everything on it while ABC past the president of the network suggested they try a smaller label called cadence run by Archie Bleier picked up the phone called him set the meeting the next morning, we went over and they bought it. It's date overcome one hurdle getting a record deal. But as it turned out recording the album before a live audience king with its own set of challenges. This is a special report from CBS news. The Cuban crisis talk about an evening of what an evening that's the night of president Kennedy's big speech about the Cuban crisis. We had the TV sets in. Back room. And we watch the speech where everybody believed going to war within the past week unmistakable evidence had established the fact that Kyrie offensive missile sites is now in preparation on that imprisoned island. So the show starts the audience has no idea that president Kennedy is on TV addressing the nation about this really terrible crisis. It was and how does the show go perfect? And I did have a fear that the cast had heard this speech. Also. So we did we do quick little speech right before. Hey, it's Showtime. We're going out there and kill a gay and everybody did it didn't affect anybody after making it through that crisis within a crisis. Bob Booker handed off the album to a DJ friend at WINS radio in New York. He was going on the air and ten minutes. And I said look what I've got. And he looked at it and he played one cut. And he said, she's pob let's say shall he went on the air for three hours. He played the album continuously no more family for a while. Now, I promised to an off the light. Jackie Jack night. Bobby knight. Every light in the place. Little I mean, it was cool Razi the phone calls from the other stations were coming in television. Bookings for Vaughan, all in three hours grow at wide. Open one to suck. The first family album took off like a rocket and Vaughn meter was in for the ride of his life.

Van Meter was playing a gig in Detroit. And didn't know what hit them couldn't believe Lincoln back to New York. And I walked down the street and heard my voice being broadcast. And it was just couldn't keep up. I mean, it was on fire can give me a sense of what that start. Like, would you think this though, sanity everyone wanted Vaughn meter to appear on their show, including beloved singer, Andy Williams, who was hosting a popular new variety series on NBC. Well, thank you very much and the weather to be here. I've been looking forward to working with long because I wanted to sit right next to the guy who was so well, he's had the most successful album the history of the record the first family. There's a good reason. The first family was the best selling album of its time. It's a total blast. It's not really a satire. It's parody the kind of funds Zini take off that I used to love reading in mad magazine when I was a kid like when they turned chips into chimps or the godfather into the odds father that kind of thing it's not really meant to make you think it's meant to make you laugh. Okay. So some references may not play for today's audiences of you drive. A hot bogging like monopoly with Republican Senate minority leader Everett, Dirksen show, you will boardwalk impact play. But a surprising amount of it really holds up to following Christian toys, speak English, jacking. Sure. The Jackie sounds more like Marilyn Monroe, which probably didn't make the first lady, very happy. But come on to be fair who didn't think the real Jackie sounded a little Maryland during that famous TV tour of the White House. Yes. This room is everything in it really is from the time of president Monroe. Of course, the album does its own take on that tour, the Dalai Madison. Pena? Kurram? Most of the jokes are pretty gentle. There are a few digs as through it to Nixon DM, wait. One of the biggest laughs comes here when the president divvied up. Caroline, and John John's vast toy. The two of the Yogi bear Rabija balls the Bala Shelly putty belong to Caroline nine of the PT Baulch one of the job. Yogi bear beach balls and the two Howdy duty. Plastic bouncing clowns. Baby. John's the rubbish won- is mine. Imagining people everywhere get home around the water cooler at work repeating that rubber swan line. And apparently they did. Those pretty funny Anthony atomic who impersonates President Trump knows the album. Well, his grandfather played it for him when he was growing up. But I also wanted his take on how meter looked is Kennedy. Is it a good impression? That is an impression. It's a good impression. Because the good impression doesn't require any makeup or accoutrements. The idea should be that the presence of the person is what you feel like there's a will that presents Kennedy in that moment. There is an I say this with great pride. There is not one ugly joke in the entire thing. There's not even a really nasty political joke anywhere nail. Yes. It's all very safe. From today's vantage point turns out, and this was a surprise to me. The producers in cast were pushing the limits of comedy I had to I I must level with misgivings about. This idea for reasons of my own that's late night host Jack Parr he was Johnny Carson before Johnny Carson issuing disclaimer before inviting von meter onstage par then goes on to quote, feigned, anthropologist, Margaret Mead. She too had weighed in on the first family album because well, why not she told life magazine, quote, this making fun of people in thority is very healthy. It is the difference between democracy and tyranny, and quote, the album continued selling like crazy, but was the White House thinking. Remember presidential advisor Arthur Schlesinger who was so concerned about that voice on the radio that he wrote a memo about the dangers of impersonating the president. He wrote the radio listener twirls. His dial comes in in the middle of things and rarely listens with full attention any way Schlesinger concluded on an ominous note, remember Orson Welles and the Martian invasion. Again, this comedy seems completely benign today. But boy it raised an alarm in the president's inner circle will gut dangerous because the people around Kennedy around any president or so protective the minute. They heard someone doing Kennedy on the air so accurately who's Vaughn was really good. But they went screaming David went to the FCC to try and stop the album. Clearly, thankfully, those attempts weren't successful. But I was fascinated to learn that Schlesinger took the time to go back to the days of FDR to seek out some kind of precedent with regard to presidential impersonations. It turns out Franklin Roosevelt's press Secretary Stephen early had directly asked media outlets not to give airtime to Roosevelt impersonators been a longtime president and his family have been subjected to such a heavy barrage of teasing and. Fun. Poking have been books on that stairs at the White House and cartoon books with clever sayings. Photo albums with balloons and the and the rest and now a smash hit record. Can you? Tell us what you read and listen to these things and whether they produce annoyment or joint. Annointment know Purdue. I yes, I have read them and listen to them actually, I written two misdemeanors record. But I thought it sounded more like teddy than it did me. That's not Vaughn meter as JFK that is the actual president of the United States talking about von meter in one of his life press conferences, according to many accounts, the president did enjoy the album in even gave out copies for Christmas. Do you know why many human being out of took him down off the pedestal? He was one of us. A just looked a lot better than all of. Volun- meter went onto win a Grammy for best comedy performance. And the first family won album of the year. The first family beat out the likes of Tony Bennett. And Ray Charles Van Meter was living the dream, right? It just ago the voice you're hearing now is the older meter from that nineteen ninety eight interview that I got from the archives. You know, go on Sullivan. I'd asked him if I could play singers. I wanted to desperately place a music sing songs. No not. It's not. It's not too. So I just sell in line. You know? In did it on I had to get sued to do a volume two because I didn't want to do a vote him to they stood me for million dollars. In early nineteen sixty three while meter was on a concert tour the album. Bob Booker in Earl Dowd began developing fresh material for a second volume of the first family album at which time Vaughan said. I don't wanna do Kennedy any more you heard that right meter who almost overnight went from barely scraping buying clubs to starring in the country's most popular album was sick of the Kennedy act. I wasn't very content with any of it immediate was the Kennedy thing that I couldn't get out of but album producer. Bob Booker was having. None of that. I said we have a deal to do it. He said, I don't care about that. I I don't wanna have to do Kennedy the rest of my life. He said I wanted to do my act, and this is the time I had to say on you don't have an act in Evatt an act if you give this up Unigate organ anywhere was that hard for you to say. No because it was the truth. And I wanted the album and just do what we have contractually then go do anything you want in your life. If I never see you again, that's fine. And just do what you promised to do. How did he take it? When you told him, you don't have an act. How did he know? He was offended is annoyed. So I can go do my act was no act. There was no actum talent scouts, right? It was Kennedy. That was that volume. Two was released in the spring of nineteen sixty three and sold fairly well, but nowhere near the original album, one of the sketches, which today seems pretty haunting imagines the Kennedys enjoying retirement in nineteen Ninety-six. Hi shortly. Enjoy being president Bobby enjoyed being president jetty enjoyed being president. The nine join me resident again. Once I was in. I couldn't find the way out. And. I'm sorry found the way. Inning of November twenty second nineteen sixty three. The Associated Press published a story by veteran Hollywood columnist. Bob Thomas, which started as follows. It's always a bit surprising to find a new star in show business trying to run away from the thing that made him famous. Today's example, is Vaughn meader. Thomas thing goes on to write. He also is searching for ways to destroy his image as a JFK imitator. Meter didn't have to search much longer.

Here is a bulletin from CBS news in Dallas, Texas. Three shots were fired up president Kennedy's motorcade in downtown Dallas. The first reports say that president. That's the older Van Meter just good book that the democratic cleven Wisconsin, and I flew into Wisconsin from New York. And when I got in the cab, the cab driver said you hear Kennedy got shot in Dallas. I said, no how does it go? I thought it was in Kennedy joke because people everywhere I went people go you hear about jagged. There's Jackie out of the punchline. You know? So I thought it just another being setup. Somebody recognized me was setting me up for another Kennedy joke. You know, I said I was ago, and then I heard on the taxicab radio that that's what happened. So I went to the hotel got drunk got the next plane out went back to New York. I guess they stood drunk. Bob Booker was having lunch in Greenwich Village. When he heard the news the phone rang was by secretary, and she said Kennedy's been shot. And I just threw some money on the table. It was absolutely devastating. I call you Bleier the minute I got back, and I said get the albums wherever they are. Because even they're out distributors. All I said, get your hands on all of them. We're gonna chop them up. I want no part of cashing in on this man's and just like that von meters. Meteoric rise to fame was over. Did you ever see von again? Boy, I talked to him a couple of times. I don't think I ever did say we get. Well. Son of. John's gone. So I don't wanna hear me playing him. If it isn't me. I don't wanna you know, I don't want to be in. Less. I think his issue. This armchair analysis was the he did not have a good division between the character and himself Trump impersonator, Anthony atomic, but he basically doesn't know where he ends or Kennedy ends and he begins. He might have just been a person who just didn't think about his psyche before he got into it. It broke my heart really at the time. But I thought to myself will now I can go onto something else. But I couldn't it was hot. That they didn't want. Nobody else. Nobody wanted nothing else me. That's what they wanted. And they couldn't let go that. I'll never forget in New York City is cold as it is. I'm walking down second avenue steel riveta riveta with a hard hats sees me stops his riveting wafts over squeezes. My hand is just so sorry. In like, you know, I was getting that like almost pity. And I think I had to go to great extent. I know that I stayed drunk in the after that I stayed drug to get away from kitty feeling sorry for me, you know, so. Feeling sorry for myself. So imagine if like the one thing that you were getting your momentum on just got pulled from you. And then everyone's like, oh, that's so bad almost as if also like everyone was like your career's over maybe almost like he wants to shout. I'm not dead. It also I thought this maybe I'm wrong. But they would also be like, I don't want this show your pity and love for him. Don't don't put it to me. Meter would go on to say that he seemed to be a living reminder of a tragedy. It's worth remembering that he knew member of nineteen sixty three he was just twenty seven in. That's usually the start of a career one week after the assassination. Comedian Lenny Bruce was back on stage in New York Babacar Sall him and says he remembers a moment that has since become legendary and he grabbed that microphone, and he said boy did von meter get screwed. Not exactly that word. Okay. If you're you're free to say, if you wanna say, oh, he said boy did Vaughn meter get fucked. Now, the critics took him part for I have never heard a laugh that big in a house in my life. 'cause Lenny had the ability to say, your most inner thought in public that you would never dare say everybody in the theatre had thought that I had gotten calls from people saying poor Vaughn poor Vaughn, how about poor Jack Kennedy for Christ's sake. Right. Think about poor Vaughn one of the best presidents. We ever had in my opinion was dead. Assassinated is it's not about one meter good. No von meter hadn't died, but he was collateral damage. Another line attributed to Lenny Bruce was that they should put two graves in Arlington. One for Kennedy and one for meter after the president's death meter wrote a condolence letter to Jackie Kennedy, although we never met he wrote I felt as though a known him all my life. I was given by fate the ability to impersonate, his voice and copy his gestures. I sincerely hope that a part of what I did found its way to him and gave him and his family a few pleasant moments. Letter handwritten. It's in two different books sexual TV get a response. She hated. That's Baen meters. Widow Sheila she holds a copy of the letter MRs Kennedy did hate the album when it first came out, she referred to meet her as a rat in a memo, and here's her conversation with Arthur Schlesinger, a few months after the assassination wouldn't anything? Wouldn't you think of these kits about him sell pike the first family and so on? You ever listen to them? I think he listened. I'm not sure listen to all of that record. I listen to win side and the night three would away because I didn't want my children to see and only wasn't. Casey sort of took it. What what it was? So. Those things she went on to say, I mean, I could it was. So mean, I didn't care they make fun of me anything, but when they made fundamental children. The year after the assassination meter didn't disappear completely he popped up on television few times in nineteen sixty four but never again as JFK that same year. He put out his own album called have some nuts later. Another one called if the shoe fits so pick up your phone right now and contribute contribute. The name of a communist and put us over the top. While they receive some nice reviews. They just didn't sell he traveled the country for the next decade, but a Sheila meter recalls. The man she called by his birth. Name Abbott never found that second act insisted on writing his own stuff. Didn't he needed a writer? You know, that's he would never have succeeded in something like the first family if there hadn't been an Earl doubt and a Bob Booker to ride it. He was a delivery man, AB delivered avid spoke Abbott had voiced that felt like warm oil was being rubbed into your skin. Beautiful. I mean that sounds great. I mean, there's no shame in being as you. So. Well, put it a delivery, man. That's what he was. Right. That's why wasn't he okay with that? No, I don't know ever. She turned to a variety of substances the cocaine was the LSD was the suicide when knows the. The Roman coke was the marijuana. And they all had their affects everyone of them. You know, he was a different person with each one. Why do you think keep us so many substances escape running away getting getting into going toward? A new life. The new reality for him. I think. One of the characters inspired by these substances was a blue bunny the assets. Correct a blue bunny meter also had a messianic complex which led in nineteen seventy-two to production of Jesus comedy album called wait for it. The second coming. Perils? Would you hear some would? I make me land. I'm afraid they aren't very hubris. I'll to run it. So he's playing Jesus is funny to sell well, no he pursued his passion for honky tonk music and even appeared in a few movies in the nineteen seventies, including the commercial flop Linda Lovelace for president. Eventually, he moved back to his home state of Maine. I should apologize on television. I really should apologize to every woman that ever know me because I really didn't know how to treat women. Something we haven't talked much about is meters personal life as mentioned earlier. He was married. Four times Sheila was number four. They met in the early nineteen eighties in Maine Sheila was running away from her own addictions when she came across a flyer advertising von meter playing piano at a nearby in. Did you know who that was? I did. But you know, it didn't really register. He was only voice, you know, of voice. That's all he was from comedy from the first family, and I really didn't. Register him as a living being visible touchable. Person. They would be together for twenty years Sheila describes a controlling relationship with highs and lows and a man deeply conflicted by the thing that had once made him so famous was he haunted by the whole experience. But he he also didn't let anybody know it at the same time. He was letting everyone know he was a dichotomy. I've never known anyone who could be so many things to same time. And as far as how he looked back on the first family experience was a dichotomy there was he haunted by but then also wanted people to know he was on meter. Well, he did that that's wanted to be known as on meet it. But on the other hand, he didn't want anything to do with one meter. He was abbot, and he wrote his music and he entity entity people the need played the piano, and that's what he warned. Every must face rejection. Remarried? I see my reflection.

In February nineteen Ninety-Eight von meter was wintering with friends in Florida. He seemed happy playing piano at a local bar. He hadn't been a star for years and then out of the blue he got a call from CBS producers wanted to profile meter for a new cable show hosted by Paula Zahn. Coming up on PS. He sounded like JFK. He looked like JFK it made him world famous now while you've been listening to Van Meter speak. It's important to note that back in ninety eight there was a producer sitting across from him. Asking him the questions, I was struck immediately by his appearance, you know, full headed gray hair and a beard. This is Kevin Huffman. He was a young CBS producer at the time. What do you think he's self image was when you were sitting there? Oh, he was one of the least confident people, you know, it's all bravado like on the one hand, he's aggressive, and if you look at you know, the tape sometimes he looks at me, and I watched it just now, and I could see the aggression on his side. Like, you know, what are you going to ask me next? You know, I I've got my story to tell and I'm not quite confident here. But I also note. That when he does go into bits his eyes dart around a little bit like he's looking for an audience very much like the camera crew in behind me were part of the audience, you know, when he finally kind of shed the act that's when I felt like I was starting to get to the real guy Sheila revealed to me the reason for her husband's wariness, his defensiveness. What do you remember from nineteen ninety eight when CBS came down to do an interview of him in Florida? His disappointment meter boasted to Sheila and his friends that TV anchor Polenzani would be coming down to do the interview when he opened the door to find Kevin I think that broke his heart broke, his heart. It did it embarrassed him and he didn't tolerate embarrassment. What happened at the end of the interview. This was sad. You know, we I think toward the end of the interviews when I asked him to do the voice, and which I felt was kind of big moment for him like him doing the voice to me was really cathartic and possibly damage thing. I I don't know. It messed him. I wanna play this moment in its entirety because more than anywhere else. You can hear what a struggle. It was just being on meter doing Joe's, I didn't ask. If you do the voice, you wouldn't be doing your John. Think of a clever line. Why do the voice, you know? Save up voice all eve years. We did not have a line. Not have the line. Use the voice for look at the brain brain doesn't react to to just chefs off switch on and off. Switch went on somebody's do the voice which one. I can't. Two hundred years ago and concord Massachusetts, a shot was fired heard around the world. Thirty something years ago. Dallas Texas another shot with fire that was heard around the world. The first bullet fired from the concord bridge signal the birth of the American spirit, the second bullet fired from the Texas book depository attempted to win that spirit and we've seen in the live clarity something years. How nearly successful that second was. But in the final analysis there is no. But there is no there is no power on the face of this earth that can destroy the American spirit. Maybe say some like that. Not funny. What he's saying here. It's a little bit dark, but it's also thoughtful kinda deep even I don't know optimistic a totally different JFK impersonation. Once again, Anthony attempts. It was interesting because in a weird way I watched it in line with it. I was like, oh, it's you you are doing the same thing. You're using this vessel to make a greater point. Right. So we we wrapped up the interview and he got up immediately. And I followed him, but he went right into the kitchen and grabbed a court of cracked open the lid and just started chugging. He he said, look I needed this. I couldn't. Got through your whole interview. I did everything. But this is you know, I have to do this. I wasn't judging him. I can't help. But wonder von meter would have been better off if he'd never discovered he could imitate Kennedy. But what do I know maybe after a very tough childhood. He was simply faded to have a rough go of it in life. If you could get into a time machine, and you could go back to the moment that he's approached by Bob Booker Earl doubt to do the first family album. What would you tell as a time traveler from the future do it? Dear. I'll be right here. I'll be in the background. No one will see me. No one will hear me. But I'll be here for you. I would say do it. Sure, why not. That Vaughn meter interview from nineteen ninety eight was the last the public would hear from him. He died six years later on a Tober twenty ninth two thousand four just one day after my father died pop always talked about the time before Kennedy was shot as a more innocent time. He heard the news on the car radio and pulled the light blue VW bug. He was driving. I corps. My parents have owned over to the side of the road and wept. It was a different time one where the presidency was held in such regard that von meter would end his routine with the assurance that. It was all in good fun. We're never going back to that time. And I'm not saying we should try. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't pay our respects not just on meter, but also to that time before that horrible day. So. So I want to end this mobile wary with some sound from near the end of the first family album sweet disarmingly innocent. And yes, funny. Everybody taken together with big.

Bonus: Halloween Animals
This. Rangers. Alright earth ranger ever here. Reporting live from the deep dark forest, it's close to midnight. And I'm out on a research assignment for season two of the podcast. It's a cold and foggy night, and I'm trying to keep warm here at my little campfire. So I thought I would take this perfect opportunity to tell the tale of all hallows eve or more importantly, the amazing animals that make this holiday extra special. We're going to explore the bone chilling hair-raising world of halloween's creepiest Crawley's creatures like, bats and cats and toads. Oh, my but first let's gather around the campfire and count down the top five. Biggest scariest animals brew these. Okay. First up on our list is the Japanese spider crab, this massive Arthur pod, that's a fancy word for critter with its skeleton on the outside can grow to be up to four meters long that's twice as long as a Queen size bed. That would be some kind of teddy bear. Kids like to cuddle with this guy. That's for sure. Number four next up is the black fine FOX thinking what kind of animal? This is. I beg of Halloween candy. You'll never guess. All right. What do you think? If you guessed FOX, you'd be totally wrong. Trick the black flying FOX is Austria's largest bat with a wing span of over one meter that's about as tall as a two year old. Three coming in at number three is the. What what does that sound in my expert opinion sounded like a monkey bird? But I'm pretty sure that's not a real thing. It's a bit dark, but let's see maybe maybe binoculars out. Just as I suspected really not a monkey bird. Let me just get a little closer and see if I can. Yeah. I knew it. Well, I think I know it, but what do you think? All these that one with you, my listener friends will we get back to our top five. But don't worry. Welcome back to it at the end. Now, we're was I. Three number three number three of the list is the Goliath tiger fish Justice its name to Jess this African liver. Monster is used and Seward's thirty two sherpa teeth. There have been reports this fish attacking humans swim in the river at calls, home and local legend has it that an evil spirit enters the fish and makes it attack people. To sticking with the Goliath theme next up. We've got the Goliath bird eating spider. Yep. You heard that correctly their members of the tarantula family, which makes them. My books, but the fact that their legs can be as long as ruler is icing of the creepy crawly Kate. Last, but not least is the lion's mane jellyfish, which I think is pretty well-named considering it's the largest known jellyfish in the world. It's tentacles can reach up to sixty meters long. That's about half as long as a football field. I wouldn't wanna play this guy in the Super Bowl. That'd be super spooky. For more big scary animals to get you into the Halloween spirit, visit earth Rangers dot com slash podcast and click on the bonus episodes link. Well, I think safe to say we definitely got her spook own in a big way with that countdown. It's pretty obvious. Why those animals make our whole wing haunted, but what about the Batson black cats and toads of the world minding their own business three hundred and sixty four days of the year. And then all of a sudden October thirty first rolls around. Then boom there in the spotlight creeping out with the best of them. What's up with that? I think we're going to have to dig back into the history books for this one. See see? Okay. Here. We go back in the middle ages. It was thought that the devil himself would give black cats to which is to be their servants. It was also thought that which is could turn into black cats whenever they wanted. You know, this is definitely just alleged. But thinking about some of the mischief Mike cats are scratch on gets into. I wouldn't be surprised if the ad some which it into speaking riches, it looks like toads get their bad rep for the same reason. It was said that people who had wards were believed to have touched a tone that had been poisoned by you guessed it a witch. And of course, bats in which is go hand in hand that's were believed to have flown around. Witches? Fires to catch the MAs. That were drawn to the light. Now, just to make sure we checked with our frog and toad expert Chris Rossi to see if he can get warts from touching toads. Let's hear what he had to say. Oh, hi, Chris 'em again. I have one more question. I forgot to ask you, sure. What that can. You get words from touching slimy skin. From touching toads. That's just an old wives tale. Nice talking to you. Bye. There you have it. Thanks, chris. I think it safe to say we can close the book on that one. Oh before I sign off. Let's go back to that. Who am I? I think we got a stumper on our hands. Folks. Anyone have any guesses? Maybe I'll give you a hint. If you tuned into the podcast before think back to episode two, and if not well, it might be time to fly our to the podcast for all. It'll hint that might help. Any guesses? Okay. I did say this was a hard one. But if you guessed it was a. Got it. And if you Little Brown bat, then your extra awesome. It's a bit tricky to idea Little Brown bat, they are Brown little, and it is dark out after all, but I'm thinking onto something. First of all these guys are teeny throw only about two point five to four inches long. That's like the size of my thumb, plus their furriest kind of glossy or at least glossier than some of the other bats. Well, there you have it Rangers. Everything ever wanted to know Halloween. I know. Signing spooky Mus Ruth Ringe. Over. Best robot ever dot com.

From two thousand thirteen now, this is a live show from a mouthy and the very first time joke was ever on on the podcast. He was actually famous for calling the radio show. She's a podcast as Kobe.

It's one of those great Gatsby nineteen twenties extenders for cigarettes. Chalk on the end of it. Here's I also like once a while you see that car. That's parked. It has two flat tires. There's racoons living in it. And as one hundred twenty eight tickets on the windshield, and it has five thousand cha-cha at what point when you're coming around. Do you go, you know, and I'm going to make it an even fifty five hundred shock marks on their counting the days that you've been in prison. Whoever owns this car, no longer Rome's earth. Fucking tow. It out of the chalk is to remind him. Did I talk that car fifty five hundred times, obviously, you chucked that fuck in car. And also, here's the thing about the chart once you get to the fifth one draw the X throw it. So we can tabulate it. You're actually just striping Bank thing. Snake take half the day to discount it just like we have to take the tire off because there's a flat spot where it's been shocked at the bottom. It's just talk jock jock. Hey, that's taxpayer. Chalk that's for that. Chuck Chuck that's one of the city's bankrupt. We're we're lousy with chalk ring, gouge with jogging. If you have a job if you have a job that is you leave the house.

We're back Chris geo here are some more cruel classics clips for you this next one comes from two thousand seventeen featuring Gina Bryan. And Dave damn Schick girl show twenty ninety five it's from June twenty seventeen preceding this episode adamant Brian had an on air debate movie. Cobra a sequence in the movie shows a law, Mike tape. Two guys chest, Brian, of course had to object makeup bowl separate plot. With this guy was in the form, it must've been cut from the movie which has a little bit of weight because like forty five minutes cut from the movie. So that was like a ten percent plausibility chance of that happening little they know I'm like Cobra historian obsessive. So then I decided to look into word the Blu Ray, which had the commentary track as watching at home. Very interesting moment happened where the director addressed the exact argument they've been having the deceased director. So as if I guess from beyond the grave to settle a debate in Adams favor. Part of this. I call in Adam bus out in impression of an impression of doing impressions. So there's two different people these doing character of one person to person any other person impressed -ception right here on call classics. Giovanni superfan. Giovanni giovanni. Brian. Good, man. What's going on? I have a clip. I think Gary before you. Yup. Let's play it. And then GIO can explain I this job because monster director of Cobra, and this is the Oregon brothers log, which I love the should never have changed before. This is like the old days. Here's the movie. Director director's commentary. Sound machine? Gloria fun. Nice feeling of the beach. Venice establishing jot pulling up his Merck behind the low rider. On the beach. On this interesting building, she shot the movie all the Felton in the snowman. John Sledge's foam. And that's why we had. I live in. Cobra. If you love this get fully here. It was a mistake. Why didn't we didn't have enough coverage see shirt off? And there's it off. You can see the might. But if you keep we'll see this. All this. Hold on. I can't go on any the I hired in Tonio. Ben. Scratch track. And laid over the movie there is no actual director. Furious. I'm a little impressed. And Tony is really not working nearly like these guys are much more accessible than you assume. He is. Unforgettable for this kind of low between Flonase be commercial, literally low scale prog Melanie put him ride on the blower like early life. Well. Thought it was her. She picked up the phone, and he didn't do it that afternoon. But I mean, it was practically that afternoon so rewind a little, but it's funny now picturing Antonio Banderas. I just. Coverage his shirt off. And there's it off you can see the Mike. But if you people see now is that? I. His. Thing it's something. But it's the Mike. Oh, what nobody would know that the low riders that's one of the ritual passes Antonio daddy's like you would have to be bald. And I was like I slept on it shocked take. Take. No, I thought about it. But I also know you're pretty shrewd got tons. That in the actual practice commentary from nineteen eighty eight. What kind of bald retard? So back, then we don't have it word for Rijkaard's. Not gonna watch Coburn. On the head by donkey. Yeah. What did you find that? A long process. I've been obsessed with Cobra thing for over a decade when I read this whole internet thing piece on and how was edited and they go to the movie, and I've been searching for work printed, which I've never been able to find I had the DVD. I never thought it was a commentary and then last Thursday's episode which aired Friday believe with Vinny Brian dared, some fan of the show to find it, and I'd already ordered the blue Reagan's. It was on the way here. So I was trying to cut it long story short. I had to find a video file rip the commentary, and I had a recent get by hand by measuring the mouths, and when the words came out, so I can put it back foot is Brian complaints mannequins. No. Takes a big, man. I was wrong and the satisfaction of knowing the anthem is so much better than thinking. I may I may be on something here. I'm glad we know the answer. Right. Twelve VM when I watched it. But now you now, I know, you know, the answer that's my satisfaction on me knowing that on board. All right. That was nice. And who knew he would even cover that part. Yeah. I know I couldn't believe it. I put the Blu Ray in never watched this decade ago. And then like the scene comes on. He's like nobody really notice. I'm like. Like, no one noticed. Three shots is there. My only hope is Brian picks him saying Cobra and makes drop every time you bring up Cobra. I can't drops. But I think it will work. Jack, you'll be happy to know that one week ago. I was sitting with sly for three hour party much closer than you. And I are he he he punched me in the shoulder over under was seventy one times. All we talked with boxing and Cobra. Holy and hell no learning because I wasn't there. It was awesome. I can't diesel adamant introduce themselves to despite him doing love line for two hours seventeen. All right. Well, forgot about that. We had hair look different guy. Thank you Giovanni. Never call again. Awesome. With this. This is. It was a sort of Marshall mcluhan thing with Woody Allen hall. Yeah. Where he was like tapped him on the shoulder like, sir. You clearly know nothing about my. Right here right now frame. It was a great funny. Woody Allen the side, but that was about as satisfying as you could ever have an argument that would have spun off into outer space, and that our kids would have to continue after we were gone McCoy. Space Pocono the chest. All right. We're back with more clips free Kristen geo here now geo we get a lot of cool stuff sent to the studio from listeners, and this next clip highlights something really amazing listener made in their windbreakers. But these aren't just any windbreakers. They have numbers on them. Get one side's Adam or just Adam Brian gone to. Yeah. This is Ed Miller now ski he's the guy that does almost all of urban dictionary entries for Adam people descend into windbreaker based off a bit on most Adam and drew show on the, but this was such a momentous occasion. This one in its Adam Cole show one thousand three gene Merman Alison Rosen, Brian Bishop and Adam receives his windbreaker. I was sent this jacket from Ed Millan Ascii. And yeah, you know, my plan of my water displacement plans. I. I've said it a few times I'd like to get every man in America to just put his penis his engorged. Penis graduated cylinder. See how much water's displace? We can do length and girth, and then you get a number signed to you. And you have to put it on a windbreaker, and where it for, you know, calendar year, it's your volume it'd be fun. So I gotta sweat check. By the way. Evidently, I said there's about one hundred and twenty million dudes who have to participate in this eighteen over eighteen in male, according to sweat jacket. There's one hundred twelve point five million. So it was a rough estimate close enough. But anyway, I came in twenty three million. One hundred sixteen thousand three or five. So that hey percent. That's it twenty not bad. And this is what it would look like and people would walk around. And you know, you'd see guys you'd find a guy it was just a digit or two off. And you guys would have something to talk about. Would it be like that thing where you know, when you find one license plate is almost the same as yours and you get excited, and they could care less. If the guy has one war less than you. And he doesn't care. He's probably sucking up to someone in double digits aren't upon you know, and I'm talking up the lady's going cappuccino that he can't eat Posey for shit. He's riding on his cock.

And then they have some of the unfilled requests. Perhaps what you just said. Adam would be there when I'm wondering what I'm realizing though is that I don't know that they ever actually get to see these photos. Oh, really? I don't know. That's the part that's unclear but for people in Brooklyn eight it's kind of like a prison make wish foundation. Yeah. Right. It's more like what would people in prison? What would their wish be? Let's put it in a museum. I looked it up number one. Plus you lips number two Monets days. That's arana. Just those were the first. So for example, here's a request. I would like to see the downtown Chicago or the lake of Chicago. It will bring me happiness to see a real nice picture of the downtown. Please a good place to eat or to you know. Nice cars I've been locked up for seventeen long years. Let me say this. And I don't want to say how to live if you're in the whole, but but hear me now. I as young lad grew up in my own form of prison known as Corolla house watching the black and white thirteen inches in the box that came in probably about size a half. I used to watch the shows like the Brady bunch and get depressed because they have these Brady meetings where they'll showed up into in one room with also Vernon Jerry house that nice cool. Art, cool that Alice everything was cool based proms had was someone got a C minus on a trick faster something. Yeah. Right. That nothing that started a pan everything they worked so well together watch that show, and I just see Carol and Bob or whoever no eight Carol nyc. Mike mighty climb into bed at night kiss each other. And she'd be wearing something fashionable and she'd have her hair all done up and stuff. And then I look at my pathetic family kill myself.

These guys wanna see pro se lapse. Why? A top. I don't even think it's in the top ten thousand by. Yeah. I think this is a contrived story. I don't think there's any way I've been in prisons. I was just saying Quinton two months ago. I don't think any guy in. There is telling me that I want to go outside and look at the pictures of the bay.

We're talking about for sandwiches, which Adam can never pronounced right? And Joe starts riffing as a French guy. Who's in love with Burger King, which is delightful. And then it leads to funny riff about. Out something called pillow shoes. And. Two thousand fifteen. Price branches so much. Yeah. This is Becca AAC into this is of course, somewhat. The it tells time watching. Hey, kid. The course on. Why person? So what happened to you Jean aggressive? I just went into a major cell phone carriers retail store today. Just to see if I could get an upgrade, which I can't. But I was the only one disturbed by the fact that there was a man laying in the middle of the floor and everybody was ignoring I walk in and I see two sales people staring at him on their phone. So I figured they're calling the cops are calling the hospital or something nothing. The guy hangs up. Be like, oh, you know, we can oakwood you just check with the guy and the other goes billing says I'm like everybody's fucking ignoring this. So I walk over the guy because there's no way to get to the desk. Did he collapse? No clue. Well at one point. I noticed he went from his back to the fetal position. Let me say this. There's going to be some unintended consequences to every fucking slacker loser self entitled piece of shit in our society, bivouacking everywhere, all the time now done the unintended consequences is going to be people actually have heart attacks and hit the ground. It'd be like come on get that guy shirt. Or at least a flannel understand, let them. Quiet down. Why I'm going to the cinnabon? We'll be quiet. This guy's waiting for flight. Meanwhile, he's literally just not breathing anymore because when a guy used to be on the ground. It's like, oh my God. Apparently, somebody call somebody. If you saw a grown man on his back and an airport or an apple store until fucking call nine one one right now, we're going to start finding body right or not. Eventually built they have actually that'll be right. Laid out like a starfish in the middle of the store. And then I went to go ask the guy if anyone had this guy needs help. And before I could do that a woman with hair down to the floor is feeding that auto pay ATM when you know, you have to use that instead one dollar bills to pay for her whatever monthly whatever and starts yelling at the auto pay machine at backup for this going. Over and over again as she puts in a dollar each time, probably a monthly bills, like seventy bucks. Thank you. Over and over while this guy sleeping on the floor. And then another guy has a landline that he asked them to pull up and he's yelling at somebody from FedEx on speakerphone in the middle of the store and then runs to another phone, and I don't know what was happening to his daughter or his wife, but kept saying angel my baby all age hold on high FedEx. Yeah. Oh, it was. It was a fucking insane asylum sprint though. What were you fighting spread Hollywood? Wow. We've left by the way. So here's the thing. Here's what I cannot figure out. You know, there's one more character that she left out, and there's a chick walking around with the deepest v neck and just breast popping out the top that was the mirror now. She was there. Trust me as me. Can I say this don't you feel like on one hand were all going insane with the fist bump and the Parral right everywhere about opening the bathroom door handle with your foot or your shirt sleeve, and like I said the fist bumps replaced. The handshake to ask liners everywhere. I have another one that they have. Now, I went to there was a restroom that I went to and next to the door was another box of toilet paper little squares, and it has a picture of the door handle, you grab this piece of paper to write a door. So that we're doing in conjunction and simultaneously with kicking our shoes off walking barefoot through every airport. Court in every Starbucks and literally laying on the ground and sleeping, which is pure out. Or is it a reward about? 'cause we worried about germs. You are napping on the carpet at the Burbank airport, the comforts twenty seven years old people walk been walking across it, non stop for last twenty seven years, a lot of horrors if you're fucking laying on it down on it your faces on that southwest stand ready. Yes, that they never clean. No. But your shoes you're barefoot and you're walking barefoot into the magazine store, which which is it. What is it? When do you want to be clean this same? Nothing would dry heave. If they saw you take the ice out of the cooler and put it in your coffee, right? The one that's mixed in with all the other coal from the day. Yeah. Yes. So what is it? What are we doing here? All right. So this guy's sleeping or Lang. Or whatever. And then another woman yelling at the auto payment. And then another guy's yelling at two phones at the same about what what kids do. I mean when they throw tantrums who literally just lay down on floor. Just. Yeah. That's. That's a great song. That's what we're that's what we're doing. Now. Just just go into. I'm back. Four and a half years old. I'm there's two things that kids don't care about one is if they're having a bad day, though this land, Laura, straight straight to the ground the city, number two. Then don't give a fuck who's listening to any of the shit. They're saying because they're fucking four and a half situational awareness who gives a fuck. They don't care if they're in front of the Queen or the pope, if they're having a meltdown they're having a meltdown aren't we just turning into that kind of infantile? The behavior is very juvenile. Yes. Yes. And when kids want when they throw a tantrum they the floor. But when they went a nap the ball up and just lay down and booth at a diner, whatever the go head down. It's what are we this weird? I mean is it all part of the? Every fifty year old dude dressing, like a fourteen year old snowboarder like is it all part of just regression for kids? They're the only person on their world. That's what makes a kid a kid. You have a tantrum you, and it's the kind of narcissism creeping into adulthood, I'm sorry. But I'm laughing because it's exactly what he was dressed like he had a green neon board shorts and green socks in crocks. And it was just do we think I was the guy yelling at the Powell? Do you think he was he was probably fifty mid ground. No, the guy the ground was probably forty was mentally ill or idea. We know anymore. We don't know if he had a cardiac arrest he's homeless he's mentally ill or he's had a wrong overdose or seizure because everyone sleeping on the floor. It was so fucking weird. I thought I was in a David Lynch film, and I didn't get an upgrade. And I just left. Comes close your home. Yeah. You got to move. I know, you know, you wanna give rich. Here's how we're going to do it act. Like, Nick, Sandra? Don't don't go into. Here's what here's what I've learned. Everyone is kicking their shoes off everywhere.
