"Tongue. Radio revolution. Dan O'Donnell. I think I've found it. Ladies and gentlemen, the one picture that perfectly sums up the Tony Evers era. In Wisconsin. You can see it on my Facebook page facebook dot com slash Dan O'Donnell show at Dan O'Donnell Show on Twitter as well. It was sent to me by a listener who was out in front of the Wisconsin state capital and on the pedestal where the lady forward statue once stood, is a wooden box covering up the podium. Downtown Madison. If you've been there recently. Hell if you've been there in the last three months Is nothing but boarded up Windows along State Street. And murals, which apparently are now a permanent part of the city Escape. But now There's a mural that was apparently allowed by Governor Evers. It's on state property, and it clearly took some time to On that box where the Lady forward statue once stood. Is a picture of the Capitol in flames. With the message. Burn it down. If ever there was a picture that perfectly captured the fecklessness. The incompetence. And the tolerance Of criminal activity. That has been a hallmark of the Tony Evers regime. This would be it. Welcome to Wisconsin. Burn it down. That's in front of the state Capitol right now. Can somebody please answer me why the windows are still boarded up along State Street. Why the forward statue is not been replaced why the statue of the abolitionist Hans Christian hag has not been replaced. It's been three Months. This happened in late June. We're going on late September. What are these statues? Just never going to be put back up. Our city is never going to be allowed to move forward, Or is this an admission? That Madison residents are So prone to violent criminal behavior that if there is even a storefront window for them to smash their going to smash it. Seriously go to downtown Madison. Right now. It looks like a war zone. It has all summer long. And all Mayor Sathya roads, Conway Khun say, Mayor Sunbeam, as I affectionately call her is Come on down. See all the murals. This's beautiful. There's beauty here. I wonder how long Kenosha Is going to be left reduced to rubble. At what point are business is allowed to go back to normal, and now we're hearing a study. From yelp that suggests 60% of businesses that shut down during the Corona virus locked down. Are never going to reopen. 60% we saw this week, the most prominent the Tommy Bartlett ski Sky and stage show. In the Wisconsin Dells, one of the biggest tourist attractions for nearly 70 years, they're shutting down permanently. It just couldn't come back. You get the double whammy here in places like Madison and places like Kenosha. The Ah Michigan Avenue in Chicago. Stores that had no business for Four months. All of sudden, the target of looting and Basically mob intimidation who wants to go to Michigan Avenue in Chicago? When you think there's the potential for violence in the street at any given moment, Same deal with Madison If there's one of these nightly marches that all of a sudden turns violent. Member states, Senator Tim Carpenter learned that lesson the hard way he went out to take a picture. In a couple of water buffaloes. Attacked him. Story out of Arizona, A student journalist at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication says she was removed from her position at a campus radio station. Following weeks of controversy surrounding her tweet on August 29th about Jacob Blake. The man who was shot and paralyzed my Kenosha police officers, sparking those riots. Railey climb in early September. He's a senior at Arizona State. She was asked to step down as the station manager of Blaze radio for an incredibly controversial tweet. About Jacob Blake. Do you know what the controversial tweet was? She posted a New York Post article outlining the sexual assault charges against Blake. And she accompanied it with the caption. Always more to the story, Folks. Please read this article to get background of Jacob Lakes warrant, You'll be quite disgusted. Now she deleted the tweet. The backlash was almost immediate. According to ese central dot com. This is part of the U. S. A Today network. Klein received backlash for the post, which some viewed as justifying police brutality against black people, using a claim made by law enforcement. She also received support from conservative Arizona politicians like Republican representative Bob Thorpe and representative Debbie Lesko on Thursday, Klein said that she was dismissed from her job and offered a Siri's of alternative positions with blaze or the university. The Cronkite school is officially removed me from my position as station manager despite refusal to inform me of what university or Cronkite rules. I violated Quite elaborated that in meetings with interim dean of the Cronkite school, Kristen Guilder, she was informed about the school Social media guidelines, which broadly discourage sharing personal opinions online. Kline felt, though, that she was being disproportionately targeted while other students are given AH pass. Cronkite spokesperson declined to confirm Klein's removal or respond to these allegations in an email to the Arizona Republic on Thursday. So they're claiming while she was giving opinions in a tweet. I've willing to wager. There are other employees of this radio station who have been giving opinions on the Black lives matter Movement and social justice Over the course of this summer, she didn't post anything offensive. She didn't post anything controversial, she said. Hey, there's more to the story. Take a look at this factual account of what's going on. This is similar to the UW journalism ethics study that I pointed to you that included me as an example of misinformation in a Facebook post. I put out that was totally factual. About massive mail in ballot fraud throughout American history. Even though it was true even though there was nothing controversial about it. The geniuses at UW Madison still setting. This is an example of misinformation. I have still not heard back by the way from what's what was the guy's name Hardy. Something Hardy, John Hardy, Jim Hardy, something like that. Who wrote this study? What exactly was factually inaccurate about that? Nothing This woman posted was factually inaccurate, but it went against the prevailing narrative just is my story went against the prevailing narrative that there is no mail in ballot fraud. There's no potential for mail in ballot fraud, and this is just fake news. Her post. Totally factual. Gave no opinion said Always more to the story. Please read this article. You'll be quite disgusted. Yes, objectively, Jacob Lakes alleged conduct. Was reprehensible was disgusting. But to be targeted for dismissal over this is yet another example of anything that challenges the prevailing narrative being so.

"Was zero probability of going forward, the Tommy Bartlett show president announced today. They'd close for good. It's coming at a time of year when deal would normally be hiring skiers making costumes. Preparing for next summer. But the uncertainty of the Corona virus made that impossible. Just like making a profit. We have the ability to take a 5000 see damp a theatre and put everybody 6 ft apart. Uh, but then you go bankrupt, so it doesn't make any sense that the State Journal says the show's business model basically required 2500 Spectators per day for the 100 Day season in order to make a profit that many Show suffering a complete lost this year because of the cancellation and an estimated $1 million in expenses to start up again. Deal just said that there's no way they could recover from them. There's property taxes, All right, You know, there's there's there's lots of other things that you have to tow. Lump into that some. I guess you spend any time at the time. Absolutely. Going back to childhood. I don't remember the Tommy Bartlett show, but I do remember like storybook gardens. Okay? This was in the sixties when it was really in the early days of the Wisconsin Dells. But then working for a different station in town we would broadcast from there during the summer, so Oh, yeah. So I saw many tell me but little water shows in the unis cycle riding comic who could balance tea cups and all that stuff. You know what it was that kind of nostalgia that that I think people are really going to miss? Well, I just can't get over. I mean, this thing had been at Lake Delton since 1953 minute even survived when Lake Delton drain which is amazing. Remember that? No, wait when? Like, just gone. Oh, yes, Debbie. You spent a lot of time there too. Yeah, Yeah, I I also introduced a few of the Tommy Bartlett shows stuff like that. So being right down there and looking at some of the backstage stuff, it's really interesting and very, very nostalgic. He is disappointing. It's and it's I say this only because I know Miller would totally say this that you know what if you're not going, and that's not what this is shutting down. Obviously, the pandemic had something to do with this, but I never made it there. You know, my my kids. My oldest, especially 13. Year old really is getting in the water skiing, and I always thought, Oh, well, get down there next time. Next time we'll get to it next summer.

"It'll somehow pull through covert 19 and bounce back with its Wedgwood ceiling intact. Ronnie Steakhouse Well, Having eaten there several times I could accept its demise. Philosophically. Things happen. But the Tommy Bartlett show the water thrill show No Well, unfortunately, yes, the pandemic has forced the iconic Wisconsin Dells area Water ski show to shut down forever. On DH. Unfortunately, that decision means the loss of 115 season of seasonal jobs at the Tommy Bartlett Show. Have you ever seen that show over the years? Up in the oven. Wisconsin Dells I mean, quite a famous show. If you ever saw them I never actually saw, But I certainly have seen the billboards and bumper stickers. There's Ah Ah Steinberg writes that at least robot world endures. And immensely cheesy collection of optical illusions picked up for a song no doubt from some defunct science museum and robots of the garbage can slash lightbulb nose variety. Steinberg says his boys adored robot world. So ah, casualty of the pandemic. Tom Diehl, president and co owner of the Tommy Bartlett Show in Lake Delton, said the show cannot recover from the loss of revenue this summer. The show was preparing for its 70th season. When the pandemic hit, forcing cancellation. And they said that investing in a 2021 season would have been too risky given the uncertainty surrounding the virus, and it's dampening effect on travel. 7 16 talking about travel standby because right.

"A call at eight by 561616 20 now. W. G. M. James, Jeff Walker. Good afternoon, Wisconsin. Good to have you with us? Your interestingly, last week, I was texting back and forth with a dear friend of mine. She has a place right on the gulf in Wait for it. Gulf Shores, Alabama. Now she lives in West Bend. But she owns this this place and she rents it out during the year. But She's down there. She was down there came down a mid September and so we were I say, Did you get that She drove down there and I said, get down there safely and she sent me a note back saying, Yeah, it's just absolutely beautiful. Who wouldn't want to be here? And I said, Well, that's great, except when the bad weather moves in, and I was just kind of being funny. Well, the bad weather has, in fact, moved in better factor was going to try to get Colleen on the I want to call her because we we were texting, sort of back and forth, But she sent me a note saying her phone is almost dead. There's no way of recharging it, so there's no power that's there. She says that last night at 3 30 in the morning, it Wass may just quote this directly. 3 30 in the morning, she said. 80 Mile an hour winds, you know, 80 Mile an hour winds at 3 30 in the morning. You said pretty pretty scary. 18 ft Waves 80 Mile an hour winds a little scary at 3 30 this morning. It would be a little scary. I think period any time when I when I talked to her yesterday afternoon because she she called, and I just I said, Why aren't you leaving? My kids were asking the same question. But she decided to ride it out. She's on the fourth floor, and I I don't know how bad the damage has been other than no power when she called me said that the TV's just out now and I assume we'll lose power. But, yeah, it's just just kind of very, very scary As you look at this and it's it's not just the winds. But it's the fact that this hurricane is moving so incredibly slowly and she happens to be in Gulf Shores, Alabama, which is where the hurricane made landfall, so it was kind of a direct, you know, they're talking about 345 Ft. Of water Just incredible. And then you've got the storm surge. And all of that, so And checking in with her all morning trying to figure that out, But it's well, just just well, I guess I It's easy to say when you haven't been through this but again for me, my wife and I were talking about this. You know if I'm watching these reports, and I'm anywhere in the eye of a hurricane, it looks like it might hit. I think Get in my way from getting the dog. We're jumping in the car and we're getting out of Dodge. Just, you know, going inland of going 100 Miles inland or going wherever, because you think you can come back, But I at least know somebody that's been riding that out, and hopefully it will all turn out for the better. This is It is a unfortunate story for those of us who have lived in Wisconsin most, if not all of our lives, but I guess it's it's predictable that the news today is the Tommy Bartlett. Water ski show, which has been t staple of the Wisconsin Dells and the whole tourism, you know industry in in Wisconsin for 69 years, the Tommy Bartlett Water Show goes back 69 years it was Tommy Bartlett himself passed away in the 19 nineties. But Tom deal who's one of the emperor's Oreos off of the Dells, and just a A leader in tourism in the state. You know he's operated that, and this year they they canceled it because of covert 19 because there were limits on on large gatherings. So just like you can attend Brewers games just like so far, they're not letting people in the Lambo field and just like we don't have concerts, you You couldn't have people attending like these water ski shows, which ran from typically Memorial Day through Labor Day, so they cancelled it for this year. The hope that the time was that they were going to bring back the waters he show for next year. And of course, I guess it's not surprising, but today they announced that it's it's done. The Tommy Bartlett Show is over. What they say is that you know this summer, obviously a complete loss of revenue. I mean, no money at all coming in because of the pandemic. They say each fall that they start to plan for next season. But the problem is, they don't know what next season is going to look like, and they're so okay. We had no money at all. Coming in this year. We don't know. You know, if if you could just make sure that Okay. Next year, we're going to be able to operate businesses usual. Maybe it's a decision you make. But you don't know what next year is going to look like, So they just said, you know, we had no money coming in this year. We can't undergo additional financial risk an investment to begin planning for the summer of 2021. Because you know, you make all these investments. You spend all this money and then it turns out that the next summer God forbid, is no better than this summer. So what they say is we just made the very difficult decision that we are closing. We're closing showdown period. So it's another one of these casualties of covert 19 like so many restaurants that were very, very successful before the The shutdown, and now they're history. I know that there's some restaurants that have been closed since March who haven't made final decisions about whether they're reopening or not, but candidly. I'm not wishing the mill if if you've been closed for six months, moving into a Wisconsin winter, and you haven't reopened my guess his most of those businesses that have been closed since March. They're probably not going to reopen and another one of the casualties of the pandemic. The Tommy Bartlett water show next year would have been its 70th year. And it just didn't make it right when we come back. A lot of people talking about Let's defund the police. All right? Is that the way to go city? Milwaukee is going to have a very, very difficult decision to make in the very near future. I will share the details with you and we'll discuss state to Jack Wagner returns after this on W G. M. J.

"And it is a pleasure to have Mike to be back with Mike this weekend after missing a week. Thank you, too rainy Merkin. Last week, But there's still lots happening, Man. Golf has been front and center Mike you were getting closer to baseball, hockey and basketball. Let's hope it all happens. Well, you know what I mean? You know what? When you have a restaurant. At the end of the night. You know what you gotta do, no matter what. After done cooking the meal if you don't do it everything you got to do some cleanup, right? You gotta mop the floor. Wipe off the counters, You know, clean off the utensils and everything are a little bit of cleanup for me. First of all, I wanna just say condolences to see estimations family. If wasn't for Seth Mason, who was my boss at the original's 1992 score, And if you didn't give all of us an opportunity, many of us would not be in the business or what it have had the opportunity. All he did was basically changed my life and I just want to give condolences. He passed away the age of 71. I had talked to him about being a consultant in my In the movie when we when we actually end up doing the movie when Cove it's over, and he was excited. I talked about three months ago, but I did not know. He was sounding excited, but he had gotten pancreatic cancer about 11 months ago. So I want to give condolences. I also want to give a heads up to George, often. Georgina, War your hook up. Absolutely. And I also if I can what? Announce that for the first time really in my life I shot under 101st time ever. Yeah, we're good man for not playing. I play every day now, but still that's incredible for just picking up the game a year ago, a year and 1/2 ago. Yeah, yeah. You know, I'm gonna write a book taken up top in the medieval times. And how do you know? I think people don't play golf. If they never played it early. They just decide not to do it, but I lived too close to a golf course I'm a member. And I said, You know what? I better use it, So I just want to say that and carbon. It's good to have you back you and don't doing radio certification. I got a feeling that this year with Colvin and everything else, it had a little bit more special means. Oh, my God. It was nice to get away way up in Wisconsin for love for a party that the Tommy but you know, the Tommy Bartlett show is still going on. But they shut down for the summer because of everything, but they still do it up on Lake Delton Sea of Tabby Bartlett. Stole life. I got a feeling it's going. Maybe I don't know. I mean, they still do that the grandstand still set up. They just don't have any shows running. I told Randy last week, Randi Merkel, two did a great job. I told Randy Dica would have training camp. Even if the NFL was Claude, probably at Tommy Bartlett would have the waters of the world. I want to totally second what you said about George, often by the way, and you know great. You obviously go back even farther with George when you guys first went on the air. I mean, I listen to all you guys and listen to George George doing sports phone. I think Way back in the eighties, even a little bit before my used to give me the bad news, right examined right? Cleese and other guys when you guys used to have to call up and get the scores. I mean, it's crazy to think about, but I will say that I got to know George being in the business so long, especially when I first started as just a young kid basically and was covering games, whether it was basketball really at the ball park on the North side on the South side when I was young in the summers, with Bruce Levine, covering games and I got to see George and meet George and know George and I absolutely love the guy and I think it was a 10 year run at BBM and ended earlier this week. So I'm with you. Totally. I oppose wrong. Absolutely. Mike and I absolutely love George. And I know, he said he wanted to hang on a few more years before officially retiring. He will land somewhere because he's great. By the way, Couple real quick. Seth Mason. What time that was taken heed on all sorts of things. The medium grammar my language. All this other stuff. I go up to Seth Mason. I go Listen, Maybe I should clean up my grammar a little bit or something like that. And maybe I should he goes, you do that You're fired. He always had my back. Always had everybody's back. And another one was the time we had ribs delivered because me and gadgets were pros at getting food in. We had ribs, delivered an ex Artie at the time. Rule no food in the studio and tried to grab mine of Dan's ribs. And Dan went Get your hands off my ribs and I go. Yeah. Get your hands off my ribs. Yeah. Those were the days nobody takes ribs away from Jiggs. I mean, 00 Jake said I way didn't know what he was doing. He walks it during a commercial. It was great. Were they guess? Street in ribs I own I also where they believed they might have been with the beat falls off the bone. So great. How about the gulf? You know this weekend, obviously at the tournament of the memorial going on this weekend. The field's incredible last weekend, Same course great drama, but manna for sports betters on just for sports fans. I think the weight NASCAR has come back, and we've all had a little fun gambling on NASCAR. We've had some winners. The way golf has come back. We've had some winners there. I mean, it has been Very welcome. I think for the better is the sports fans. The golf lovers to see that they are successfully pulling off these returns might well, I got to tell you NASCAR. I haven't been interested in for a few weeks. But just because it's NASCAR, and it seems like the result But it may you didn't know one day we're running. We're running three times a week. I will say this go office, but giant And I listened to Rhea Randy last week. I laid off more cholera after a hot round on Friday he had not is good around on Saturday, so it's like I've always said on Andi Odd couple. When you don't bet something that you would have lost. It is a win. So I felt like I won and I gotta be honest. The first couple of weeks. The last couple weeks, I was like one and three and one and two. Nobody knew because when you lose you don't say all right, but I want three and want to sweep the only guy that screwed me up was have. Ah, Victor. Yeah. He was beaten Justin. Thomas and Justin Thomas came back. Nice after really haven't a disastrous round now the memorial this week it's got different pins had different T placements. It's a whole o different market. I believe, because of the conditions and everything else, But because of that, you won't see the scores you saw. I think you're right. I'd be surprised if they got as low as they did last week. Because this is a little bit more of a prestigious tournament. The field really have incredible, so it'll be another fun weekend. Of watching and wagering on golf. It's so prestigious the cloth general showing that it's about you know, distorting data. Yeah, I can't get over like why The PGA is still sort of restricting me the access. I mean, they want you to buy the gold package. The feature group. They want.

"Group of <hes> people that this truly was there <hes> and they were maybe a little more of the beach bum <hes> you know because they basically would skeet cypress gardens in the wintertime or see <hes> and then come up and skiing the dells in the summer and then go back and so they were kind of on the circuit so oh to speak okay so lifestyle yeah yeah so they were living in r._v.'s <hes> they were okay with great athletes <hes> and they they water skied for living the drawback to that of course is when you turn thirty five and your body physically can't do it anymore. You really don't have an education or perhaps not a an employable skill so some of them did better than others. Was there ever a time you were doing it and you know making money and stuff and you're thinking thinking wow this. Yes is the short answer so i remember i graduated from madison in four and a half years instead of the typical before but with an engineering degree that was nothing common and athlete and student athlete right yeah traveling with the gymnastics team <hes> and i got my so i graduated in december so in about the early december. I got my contract from bartlett's. Seeing you know sign up for the next year side here. Here's the signing bonus and i didn't have a job yet and it was. I was engaged to my wife abby and we had a very short discussion as i i said well you know if i don't have a job yet. I think i could go up and ski another year and she said basically over my dead body. You can find a job. You're you know we're gonna start our life together. You're not going to go down that path so it was good wasn't good base with great advice so i was. I was less fortunate. I i was. I don't actually no. I wasn't actually dating jamie my wife so i didn't really have that sounding board that you had but i i was working at the parish arish cemetery as a general cutting the grass and stuff like that and and making money not much money but two meal is a lot of malaysia and after the first semester in college as you know i think i don't think schools for me. I think i'm going to work at cemetery metairie in an i actually did drop out working as a semester at the at the cemetery which was no tommy barlett gig but like i said it was put money in my pocket and i could buy like a tv had a t._v. That just made me feel like i was accelerating ahead of everybody else until the the brother who ran the cemetery did me a very very great favor that didn't appreciate at the time but he told me that there was not going to be a full time position for me after the summer and so i was forced into thinking more clearly and i went to school which ended up being could be a big call so you're lucky you could still maybe not. I don't know what you've the coordinating the events now or say yeah yeah hey aginst. I'm always intrigued by people who can i mean. Professional athletes are one thing but i'm i peaked in high school or maybe even before and some of the sports that i played you obviously did not how how did you get into gymnastics. And how did it lead you to to to u._w. Into being a division one athlete yeah <hes> i remember remember clearly i was i was i wanted to play football. I love the green bay packers so following today and i played football in eighth seventh grade and eighth grade and seventh grade. It was flagged. Eighth grade was tackle so i get to high school and i'm a freshman in off the team and note that's his back. Nobody got cut so you were on the team and i wanted to be defensive back but i was small and i was fat and i was kinda slow in <hes> so they said we don't really want you defense back much place center so okay. I'll play center well. I was too small so i never started but the gymnastics coach <hes> was also the football coach and he he said you know if you lost some weight you know. I think he'd be a pretty good gymnast and i said well. I've always liked gymnastic so the gymnastics season <unk> starts when football season ends and so i just went out for the gymnastics team and that was kinda. The rest is history. I'd cut the weight and <hes> i grew later in my life. I was <hes> <hes> probably finished growing at the end of college as opposed to the beginning but as a gym that was five ten so that was still a reasonable size as you can <hes> paralyze vault <hes> because i started kind of later i love all around gymnasts start when they're five six years old but i ended up <hes> took second in state at high school in parallel bars in fifth in a vault in then had a partial scholarship to wisconsin in a <hes> the gymnastics team actually set a school record which still stands today a medicine for parallel bars right don't they they no longer have the sport sport. The record will stand forever unless eighteen living yeah so <music>. I love gymnastics for a whole bunch of reasons one <hes> just the there was a very disciplined sport. I mean if i was not the best athlete. I didn't feel on the team but i would. Nobody nobody was going to work harder than me and so i i just outworked everybody in <hes>. It certainly taught me a lot of life lessons relative to hard work and you know there's a phrase that i like to quote. I didn't write it but it just seems like the harder. I worked. Lucky i get right and i think that's a lot of that. A lot of people that follow the head end end up making their own success as a result. You still can have bad luck for sure but yeah well well. You seems like you've had some into into that but yeah because i was gonna say. Thirteen fourteen years old seems really late to get into and then to get to to the level. You got to quickly had you had to have something yeah. They actually there. You were with the call to an all around gymnasts meaning for mandated all six events or a specialist in that so i was a specialist so i did just parallel bars involved okay and i played on rings and high bar a little bit some flex but i wasn't good at those like i wasn't wasn't parallel bar and the ball and in. How did you mentioned that you broke your ankle really bad so that's that's a career. I was a career ending. How are you thinking about that. How did you take that you know my wife. Is everything happens for reason. I don't always agree with her on that but it certainly caused me to take inventory of okay. What are you really going to do with your life. Can you know so you've kind of been this college. Athlete in <hes> still had a year and a half of school yet to go in so i ended up a tutoring of all things in because i was an engineering student i liked in math and physics. That's why i picked engineering and somebody said well you. Don't you tudor known that it's a good way to kind of. Give back volunteer job to kinda help. Don't fill my day and you know if you wanna learn something really good teach it so that certainly there was a benefit to that but i ended up very quickly. <hes> was asked to apply for a position to manage the u._b. Madison tutorial service which was called <hes> gots hash which sounds crazy but stands for greater university tutorial service the help student housing got sash short sounds like there are people sitting around all night yeah this is back in the seven in doing something else besides sure but <hes> anyway so i ended up being and <hes> one of three directors of the guts astra to'real service my senior year so it which paid and i bought a car in you know there was like hey this is kind of some good stuff goes with this and so then when i started interview for a real career at least had some credibility to get an employer's attention that he's not cut you know just this waterskiing gymnast. You know he's gonna do you agree but doesn't never data data engineering which that was true with so that was part of the reason sales made good sense as well because never really designed or built anything at that point in my life but i sold a lot of stuff that people designed built and you. Maybe this will be my last question on tommy bartlett. Maybe not but you said that you learn to communicate. You explained a little bit how you did that but where you naturally outgoing wing are fit into your yeah that the benefit there there were a few times. I actually announced the ski. Show announcer was we had to announcers. They took turns three and four days on and off but caisley one would be sick out of town and i was happy to do that. Got involved in a ski show here in wisconsin gawky lake and was the shorter actor president of that for many years okay my twenties thirties and backed by a lot of those shows so yeah. I don't have a problem standing up. Okay okay perfect. I i don't now but it's very uncomfortable. That's kind of kind of contradicting weeknights i i can do it and maybe do it reasonably well but never feels that great when i'm getting ready for it. At least you mentioned that you came out and you are sales engineer and i thought to myself what is a sales engineer in here. I don't know what that i don't know what a sales engineer actually is so yeah obviously everything in the world gets sold you know the microphones or phones were talking to into the headphones. There was a regional distributor a wholesaler lots of steps why chain so when you stop and think about it there are certain expertise people you know learn around there <hes> industry segment whether it's lumber or gravel or in my case it was machinery in automation so i interviewed with and was hired back company that sold <hes> more called c._n._c. Machine tools are computerized. Numerically controlled cnc stands for between tools and they only hired engineers to sell the products because they were so complex <hes> at the time both in how the machines worked but also and how they were applied applied so if you're harley davidson and you're needing to make a shift gears for the transmission. That's very very specialized equipment. You're holding holding tolerances of of microns. You're holding round this <hes> great things that you can barely measure because if you're not round abbas vibrates and that's a bad something so they needed people to sell the equipment that could look at the applications that customers would have and say oh you need this model or this model or we need to put this type of tooling on this machine so it became very complex or highly engineered sale so that's where the term sales engineer okay so your engineering background help you to be able to understand the outcome that the yasser was looking for and then be able to the i i a person who didn't have an engineering degree would have needed it probably fifteen twenty years of industry experience to know is what to apply the right way to apply equipment. Okay okay. Thank you for that because i wasn't sure about that so you join alison when you were the fourth person or one of four so at the time when i joined there were six offices mostly in the west coast and they had just opened an office in chicago milwaukee and minneapolis and i was the fourth employee in the milwaukee ocoee office and when i joined the company think we were roughly about forty million in sales okay and you mentioned that you went to six six hundred fifty nine people in six hundred fifty million takas talked to take us through that journey both from a company standpoint and from you your point pail so so one of the thinking about preparing for this a little bit he'll certainly there are a lotta mentors or keep people in in all our lives at help our careers and jim allison clearly was one for me.

"tommy bartlett" Discussed on How'd It Happen Podcast

"<hes> as you heard in the introduction can say <hes> hugely successful business person and and athlete and leader and he's gonna share some of that today with us welcome to the show. Thank you mike a happy to be here yeah. This is our first show in the brand new podcast loft at my house so we're we're making do with a temporary setup but overrated overrated go so it can. I start every podcast the same way and that's by asking how'd happen for you. It's in the freezer phrase it. I always like to follow his you. Make plans and then life happens and that certainly is the case. I'm waukesha kid born and raised. <hes> wanted to be an engineer. Slow going to go with the u w madison of course it's the only place to go and that's back when you could get in there relatively easy if you're in the top half year class and i started studying engineering and liked it and but my first <hes> real summer job was at tommy bartlett's water ski show in the wisconsin dells in is summer jobs ago. That's about as good as it gets. <hes> six days a week three shows a day in the water ski. It's a pretty good gig but but what i really learned was how to put on a show how to how to entertain and at the end of the day really how to communicate with people how to connect act with people and that's when i started to realize that maybe a true just pure engineering degree isn't enough. Maybe there's more where i can take ah degree and began to leverage it through communicating with people and working that way and and kind of the obvious. I'll say track for that was sales so when i graduated from college <hes> it was kind of a little bit intimidating. I'm interviewing with i._b._m. And john deere and other big companies and they're looking at my resume saying you haven't done a day in engineering in your life. You've you've been a professional water skier and i said yeah that's true so i think it higher bandy them. This would have been nineteen eighty-four and we're in a mild recession so i ended a get hired by a company as a sales engineer and that was is kind of as they say the rest is history and i'd love selling. I was good at it. In a kind of climb my ranks up to that company and then after about a year sure <hes> came to work for the ellison office which is the company eventually bought into here in milwaukee and it was a pretty small operation at the time <hes> there were four of us <hes> i was the fourth employee and the wisconsin operation and i covered i ninety four north and another guy covered ninety four south and we had to service techs and <hes> we grew the company <hes> not just in wisconsin but eventually to six hundred and fifty million and six hundred employees season kind of on the ground floor of that so that was really kinda. How did it happen. It happened because i was a professional water skier and while they're go into sales and then was able to couple got an engineering technical degree with the ability to sell okay so there's a lot there's a couple of things things first of all <hes> for those who aren't familiar with tommy bartlett. That's a <hes> as curtains into a water skiing show in wisconsin dells which is very popular resort area here in wisconsin but and it's very very popular billboards the whole thing so my my first question is how did you get that. How did that come about again. It's it's not what you know so much you know so i was a gymnast at u w madison and <hes> collegiate traveling team actually leonard my first three years at madison in men's gymnastics until i broke my ankle really bad. That was the end of that <hes> but my cousin was the show director at tommy bartlett's in he knew i water skied any new. I couldn't do gymnastics anymore and said hey you can do flips right. I said well i can do lots of flips and he said well we need people that can go off the jump and do flips and ski away. Do you think he could do that and i said yeah. I'm sure i could do that so we went up tried that a couple of flips and they said you're hired so that's how i got hired. Tommy bartlett's okay and if you can take us back to what that it was actually like when you were doing the performances so there's three shows a day said and how were you interacting with the crowd besides what you were doing on the water yeah. It's a great question <hes> so this show the timing bartlett show in the wisconsin dells vacation area area similar to other parts of the country branson or spots but <hes> it the show the ski show itself was thirty six minutes and it was extremely greenlee regulated in terms of we knew exactly where we had to be when we had to be there <hes> very script tightly scripted which would think water ski show might not. Why would that be that scripted well. Tommy bartlett was is very famous radio broadcasting guy and he <hes> developed a ski show and they traveled all over the country in the fifties and sixties stopped at the end of the sixties <hes> but he was very much a showman and he spent time with us not every week but every few weeks we've come down and really it goes through <hes> how the show should click how the mechanics work and then to your question and how to connect with the audience and specifically that was you know going up <hes> <hes> after the show when walking through the crowd shaking hands even before the show doing that but then when you were performed actually have eye contact with the crowd it sounds like well how do that water skiing come up and land in the stage and you're may be dead fifteen yards from people in the front row agency him but the best <hes> role in my opinion was aqua clown so acquis was water skiing clown and he was about every three acts and he was doing something silly like getting chased by gorilla donskis or jumping out of going off the jump and getting shot with a gun. You know couldn't probably couldn't do that today but it was okay in the early eighties and i love being aqua. I was funny. At least i thought i was and i ended up winning aqua. The year is an award within the skier your group and they have all the skiers. We all did everything but ended up being with you and i i just really loved the entertainment piece of that but what i really found later in terms of connection. The business was that i really learned how to stage a meeting. A show a trade show at even a general sales me so it was really important to me in terms of that everything clicked that there weren't dead times that everybody was fully engaged that they had the right to takeaway materials. Just all those kind of things. Tommy was just a real stickler on that and i went back for his seventieth birthday which was years and years later and they interviewed a bunch of people who had skied dowels and you know what do you do now. Maybe almost a little similar to what we're doing here this morning and it was shocking. How successful most of the people had become it was anything i'll just a bunch of beach. Bums are just a bunch of water skiers from the late seventies and eighties. He's and a lot of people their companies and we're doing <hes> traveling the world and very very successful and they all attributed back to what they learn skiing in the dow's else retali- bartlett and learning how to put on a show in show could be as broad of the sales meeting or a trade show or performing so <hes> before. I get afar question on what you said there. I'm just curious about meeting setups because this is sort of a pet peeve of mine with meeting setups you mentioned some of the things you did to make sure the meetings went well. How do you feel in. This may be way out of left field. But how do you feel about seeding at seating arrangements at a meeting. I'm pretty picky about it actually actually and specifically if it's going to be video meeting <hes> the very first this sounds crazy but the very first thing i look at his lighting and camera position because because my it makes no sense to have a conference room full of people in a camera way up in the corner and seeing little pinheads of people around the table right what's the the point yeah so i want cameras in front of every person full headshots lighting needs to be right <hes> so for anything video light it starts with lighting in camera placement and camera angle absolutely for seating you get so i worked for the japanese with a japanese knees. Most of my career and the japanese are very very specific about seating in meetings. The most powerful person sits in the middle of the along table which is different than an american <hes> structure in american <hes> most powerful person sits at the end of the table and then so the japanese person sits there then his most powerful person sits to his left second to right and so on. I don't follow quite that closely but i don't want people people together that will sit in <hes> whilst they kind of chatter or talk behind the scenes what people to speak openly candidly and and so i'll usually break up people that are good friends or or maybe not good friend. Okay yeah so you don't have the second and third meetings meetings happening well between a couple of example exactly right exactly right and when you first tommy bartlett bartlett something that happens in multiple places. Is it just one. He did have a second location in pigeon forge tennessee. That's where dollywood is in. That's been closed for probably twenty years okay. I just wasn't sure wasn't sure about that yet. The were the it's funny you mentioned the water skiers beach or whatever because i feel like people think about that now with snowboarders right they think oh they're just kids you wear their pants hands too low and they need they discount all the work that goes right being actional snowboarder which i'm sure is the same as being a professional larceny in terms of work but i was curious about the makeup of the people in the show where they were a lot of them. College athletes like your high performing athletes outside out in addition to water skiing that we're definitely two distinct buckets. They were people that were like me that were collegiate athletes that were this summer job and <hes> you know really do it for four or five six years and then move onto their careers and then it was a group of <hes> people that this truly was there <hes> and they were maybe a little more of the beach bum <hes> you know because they basically would skeet cypress gardens in the wintertime or see.

"For sale among the merchandise. Dennis birds said he and a group of friends for shopping to beat Knicks may twenty fifth one of his friends Dan, or when one of his friends, Dan shade called him over and showed him, a confederate flag styled leather vest, that was hanging among the other merchandise in the store, quote, being an African-American, especially having grown up in the deep south as fest was jarring. To me, we've been beaten many times, I always thought it was a place. That's. Comfortable and safe for all people close, quote, now, I'd like to point out, then less. There's a person inside the vest wearing the vest in itself is probably not going to attack you. I don't think so you may not like it. That's okay. Totally get it. But the vest itself is probably that inherently dangerous to it is not an imminent threat. Now back to the story birds said that he and shade who, by the way, as a white guy took the vest to the cashier to express concern that it was even among the merchandise. They were then directed to a store manager and then finally to the store owner, Keith Busse. Theory. Mr. Byrd said the exchange escalated quickly, my that escalated quickly when Serey immediately got quote, aggressive and dismissive about his concerns, quote, he kept cutting me off and said we were trying to make this an issue, and it didn't need to be, but it would take it off the shelf. Okay. I'm just gonna stop there. So the owner of the store, and I have some experience in this, the onus star said I'm sorry, you're fended. I will remove the offensive merchandise. Solver there. That's not enough. Because why because we live in an age of perpetual, outrage back to the story, quote, this is from Mr. bird. He told us that they sold the vest for people who may need costumes for TV shows or a play. But my point was a confederate flag should never have been in the store with all the pride flags in close proximity to begin with close quote, Mr. Verney said, Mr Bush theory kept telling him to shut up and asked him and his friends to leave threatening to call the police if they didn't Seri told one the employee's finally to call the police. Now back to Mr. bird at that point, I thought about how this could look to police with me being a black man in this man store. I worried things really bad. So my friends, and I left on close quote, he did say that he asked his friends shade to run back inside quickly. Take the photo of the offensive confederate flag vest, have you ever Lauren Cohn owned a confederate flag vest leather or otherwise? No nor have. I the only thing that I own. I believe that has a confederate flag on. It was, I think Charlie Daniels album, vinyl album cover for many years ago. Right. Or was either Charlie Daniels, or liners, garnered one of those bands, I've since gotten rid of that, though. Okay. I told I tunes better not to vaporize my, my cuts, though that I transferred over there. So the police say, yes, a call was made, but no police report was filed just said, you know, everybody left no problem, Mr. series said he asked her to leave and had the police call because they kept accusing him of being racist, and he wouldn't leave after being asked to according to boost theory, the vest was accidentally put on the store's main floor rather than in the basement where he keeps all the other vintage clothing. He said the employee who is stocking mistake mistook. The confederate flag four a British flag. So the guy does have a little bit of wiggle room here. It's a vintage Kolding store. There's a confederate flag on the vest. I don't know if it's the only flag on the vest, a lot of times you see multiple flights on vest like this. Mr. Serra said, at the time he didn't fully realize the history behind the flag, and why it would be offensive. Well, I don't know if I buy that he added that he wouldn't want anybody to feel offended again. So he took the vest down out of stuff. So he did the right thing and his private business. Guess I guess. Yeah. Right. Okay. But this guy, Mr. bird and his friend, Mr. shade and others and a story gets more involved here. Where of set that the vest was even allowed to be in the inventory. Quote, I know I could probably nicer to them, but I just wasn't going to let them stand there and call me racist, I do see how I could have been more sensitive, but if they'd approached me approach may differently, this could have ended better for all of us, by the way, the beat Knicks shop is located right across the street from the progress bar, which we talked about earlier this week. Last week, I guess they cut the rap music all hell broke loose. I think they've reinstated rap music there, by the way, good to know later that night, Mr. bird, then shared a photo of the confederate flag vest, along with his account of the incident on Facebook. Oh, there you go. It has now been shared at the time that this was published more than fifteen hundred times I'm of course, contributing this. I'm sure the then, of course, correspondingly the beat Knicks. Facebook page was in flooded with dozens and dozens of negative reviews calling for a boycott of the store even though the store, I guess, has been there for an awful long time. And as a well regarded business in the neighborhood. The store responded to one of the recent negative reviews saying, quote, we do not sell that type of merchandise normally it was taken off the floor and the customer didn't want to stop going on and on about it when he wouldn't stop. He was asked to leave. And yes, the police were called if not to come to beat next, that's your choice. But based on the sloppy person's very poor listening skills, and insistence on arguing a point unnecessarily since the item in question was taken off the floor. This all seems irrational. Well, we live in a very irrational age, which, you know, keeps us social media platforms cooking and talk radio to. He's sue if he's going to hurt his business because he shamed them on social media. I don't know. That's a good question. I'd have talk to an attorney about that. I mean yelp yelp reviews are in the news, all the time, because a lot of times, negative yelp reviews about a business, maybe put up by a competing business anonymously. And so there's a lot, there's a lot wrong with the social media thing, Mr. area. Sure that beat Knicks is now racist in his treatment of customers. I've been on Halstead for over thirty years. So there are probably been some incidents that weren't perfect are things that weren't perfect, but that's not the intent close quote, you can read more block clubs Chicago dot org. But that is today's boycott does your outrage does your, thanks for sharing down. Good story. Here's David real quick. This is anecdotal. But David welcome to double. Go ahead, sir. John, david. Yes, I'm fifty four years old. I'm Caucasian I grew up in south shore, south Hyde Park for a lot of white people in the suburbs. They think it's Chicago ends at the science industry. And so I was born in sixty four and my childhood memory in a changing neighborhood. Was that most of the people in my neighborhood had the Tommy Bartlett, water shoal bumper sticker on the car? And if they were African Americans, they had swore to federal flag on their bumper or on weapons had us because they were proud to be from the south and in forty years, it's turned into something that was southern pride for black people, something other than that. Well, I I'm not a I'm not a strong defender of the confederate flag like what it stood for. I don't like the fact they seceded from union all of that. But I understand that cultural norms, definitely evolve, and change and nowadays, even having a vest as one of, you know, thousands of pieces of inventory in your vintage. Holding store even having a leather vest with a confederate flag. Patch on it. All my goodness gracious. Thousands of re postings thousands of negative comments because we live in a constant state of David. Outrage. Thank you so much. Appreciate your free feel free to call back here, anytime. Well things change, we will be the eleven state with recreational pot beginning next year, one man in particular has taken a look at what's happening in Colorado, and Washington, says don't worry too much about this. We're all going to survive Steve Chapman of the Chicago Tribune joins us next with six thirty.

Thanks for helping us. You're welcome. And the name of the place with actually called the wonder spot. Yes. The wonder spot, and it was actually a house that was built kind of on a plan and the story behind it was that some meteor landed there and and made water go uphill, right? They'd sit in a seat. You couldn't sit. He couldn't stand up in. There was also that wall where you would stand like say, you were really tall. And you're next to somebody really short. You would stand side by side. And you would look like you were the exact same height. Remember that? Yeah. Right. But it was actually called a wonder spy that doesn't believe it still there. John sorry. I missed Wendy would've loved the wonder spot trod. Do you? Remember, there was a souvenir that they used to sell. And I think they were like a nickel or something like that. But it was this wooden peace, and you would hold it on your two fingers, and you could balance a belt on it. And it do you remember this? This is crazy would just hold it. And it would it would shut out from your fingers, and then you'd balance a belt and then to look at it you go. Well, that's impossible. It's an optical illusion. But it for a nickel. Why wouldn't you try it? Why good? I'm glad you're with that. So they had the ball on a on a rail that would go up that rail Brian there was that.

What do you make? Marshall, so wonderful wonderful, man. Nice man wasn't a such a talented writer and director. What do you make of what took place with Henry Winkler the stories? We always hear Mary innocent. Henry was just going to be a secondary character. But that everybody just loved him immediately. And they had to make him one of the stars of the show is that kind of the way it played out. In fact, he couldn't have a leather jacket. He has a little gabardine jacket and went into the bathroom. His amount was going to call. That he was. Combed back, you know. At that moment. He walks onto that show. It is bucket. What do you make of what's become of him? Lately.
