Bozo The Clown (MM #3853)
"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason, if you grew up a child of the 70s and 80s, Bozo the Clown is likely a part of your life. Bozo is one of those characters like the lady from romper room, whichever your teacher was in route room. That was different in every market. But most people remember Bozo from the Chicago WGN Bozo gun by Larry Harmon, who ended up branding Bozo and taking it nationwide and owning it up until just this week. Larry Harmon actually passed away a few years ago, but his family's company owned the rights to both of the clown, and now it's going to make a comeback. Actor David Arquette is a part of what's called the open empire circus in New York City and is going to make Bozo a part of that. It's strange to think that a character we once loved on television for many, many years. Bozo ran on WGN until the early 2000s if I'm not mistaken. Maybe Bozo is going to make a comeback with David Arquette and we'll find out how that's going to happen. Will it come back on television? Will you be throwing beanbags into buckets and winning prizes? Will I doubt that will happen? But it's interesting to see an icon of our lifetime coming back thanks to David Arquette.

"WGN radio, Gnarly dreams and Monday night. The time is right for trivia. We're gonna delay that an hour so I can talk to someone from back in the day. I think this is my favorite part of Monday's actually is fine. People who Actually, we're responsible for most of the records. We play in Monday night Trivia, Samoas many other things and I'll tell you what rarely do We get requests for somebody, but we have had several people saying Have Jerry blab it on with my pleasure took us a couple weeks to get it together. But we did that. And Jerry welcome to WGN radio. And jury is not there. Now he is. Let's see. All right. I believed your is it's almost like this is cursed because I think that we have gone about this trying to do this a few times without any success, but well, C area there, Jerry. Rally rough like Riley, Are you really gonna be replacing Larry King's God Help me well, and you know, your denizen of Miami, much like myself and you remember when he was run out of town the first time I think if anyone had asked either of us in the late sixties, when Louis Wolfson told him he had till sundown to get out of the state He would come back and be one of the biggest names. Would you have put money on that? Well, I'm putting money on you. You're around and he's not around. Well, we got a few years difference there, too. But you know, it is one of those Cinderella stories and and to a great extent. That that's true with you as well, Because there's so many people over the years who counted you're down for the count. And as it was mentioned before you came on your the only person I know who without a doubt is the most remembered radio personality in a major market who literally never worked in a braided station. When you get right down to it, you created your success. So I guess the first question is How'd you do it? Well, you have to have the freedom you can have people view it. Look, you're doing what I'm doing. You're doing what you love to do. You don't let anybody tell you what to do. You gauge what you have to do by your audience. You know, radio better than I go radio because you were working for billboard back then covering all the radio stations. It was format radio. Then this track is we're not related. They couldn't play what they wanted the play as you know, And it was news. It was weather 10. After this, it was the clock. I never loved them to do that. And the reason that I was able to do it because I said to the radio station, don't pay me if I don't bring the rating in if I don't bring the young teenagers in Get somebody else to do it. So real secret rally is what you do what I got. The ability for you to be you. I played from the heart, not the research truck as you know. Absolutely. That's true now. Of course, it's legendary that you first went on the air. A W C A M, the result of a bet during a snowstorm and all of that, But I got an ask In terms of knowing what to play. Obviously. Ah, lot of these songs were not on mainstream radio. Where did you find them? Well, you know if you read the book, which I've written, called you only rock once which, by the way, maybe a screenplay to get to new screenplays on it. I always had. The kid was musically inquisitive. I would listen to the black stations and I would hear music. Clyde McPhatter. I would hear music by Billy Ward and the dominoes. I would hear music by millions strong at the Abalos. I would hear music that Earl Lewis and the channels and I would go to a little record store. Called Sunray drugstores Back then they had been convinced of these records, and I would go through them and back in those days you were allowed if you picked the record before you bought it. You play it, So I started to collect all of this music that I loved. And when I won on the radio Shared it. I mean, but I want all the radio. As you said with the bet the show storm closed it. I had to do a show. I couldn't do it from the nightclub. So I went up the W C A. N and I took all of this music that stamina little Richard. Frankie line, the five satins. This was the music that touched me. And I started to play it. So the secret is, if you like music that you like if you can share it with an audience and be enthusiastic about that. And they dig it. That's the home run, girl. Oh, of course it is. But you know a lot of things you played. Yes, you could hear it. If you were listening to D A s r H A t, but a lot of things you couldn't These were things that you came up with it. Nobody else did. And I'm curious how that happened. Well, if I went to New York City, and if I want to see Florence Greenberg, who had kept a record she was I'm gonna play for you. The new song by issue arose foolish of the girl. That's okay. Let me hear it. Then Bird back Iraq with Sang wants you to hear something. Florence doesn't want to release it called. Don't make me over. Would bump into birth burns. She says. Listen, I got a song the eyes and he just cut quote, twisting shop. They don't want to release it. Let me hear it. I love this stuff. With back one W. C. M and I played music that nobody else was playing because I had an ear for my audience. I knew my audience. I basically was a kid Wally when I began so by audience were young and E just picked music that I liked so I could play it to an audience. All of that makes all the sense in the world and every name you mentioned is a big one. But tell me about Bilal by the versa. Tones by allure, which nobody knew. Riley is a dance if you listen to it, open boom boom boom boom boom boom books. There's really no lyric. I heard that song when I was in New York City. With a guy by the name of George Golder, who who basically had a Latin label. Tico George Golden went on to have gone at and little Anthony the Imperials. The Shan tells Frankie Lymon, the Valentine's and I heard that rhythm beat It was over obscure label. And I had heard this one of my collections and I started the play it and kids do it up with the phones. Look at song. What's that song? Record distributors was saying, Who's got that? He's got that, and it was a little cock of many label. Out of north charity that had the record and Bernie Lowe called me said I want to buy the master. Thanks. Well, here's the guy. See George Golder tickle records, and George didn't even know we had a hit. He gave it to another guy, the guy, But I am a high wife sat in New York City who had old town records and then Bernie Lowe border and it came out on cameo and what's doomed to prove all you could do is one. All you do is too. It was a dance now that that's fascinated me because the copy I have was on all star. Which I guess was the original label one yet, right? That was beautiful. That was Buchanan and Goodman. They own the whole story, Right? Right. I knew that. Did you know that George Golder Had flying sources by Buchanan and Goodman. Oh, yeah, the loon verse level where they had to write in the L but I did. That would be a label. I didn't You know, people I loved George Goldner. And the problem with George older as you well know is he just could Abby I couldn't stop gambling and more actually be wind up owning the best labels, But it was George Golder, who had the years What? George Vulnerable, You know, they talk about creative guys. Clyde Davis is not a creative. Agreed. Tommy Mottola. Hot copy. Told It was not a creative guy. Okay? Very Gordy was a creative guy. George Goldner was a creative guy Hamad. Early get was not Jerry Wexler was a creative guy Might. Also there was a certain guys as you know, Raleigh because you wrote the little boy who had the ear. What was going to beat Syd Nathan. And you do know at a sensible hour, the best thanks Coward with building Ward with Little Willie giant would change browns. But Her best.

All these insurance companies and stars and bars and whatever's have access to where these cars are and 100% of the time. Why aren't the cops finding them? It's a great question now. Of course, part of this is, uh, you know, depending if the driver doesn't have one of the devices from the insurance companies, and if the car is not equipped with a tracking device like an OnStar, then it might not be that easy. But it is a great question. And you know, you also get into the question of what is causing it. And I know they got press releases and all that kind of stuff talking about it. And I don't know that they've had any, uh, any terrific answers. The last I heard is they're going to have a press conference or they did this evening at today, So maybe maybe I have to listen to the WGN news to find out what was on it.

"With you on WGN. Was just going to mention something. I hate that when that happens, had just disco next week. This is the most exciting How could I forget? Next week? You know, I've interviewed so many people, right? Over the years of wider. I've never interviewed. Nobel Peace Prize nominee before and we're going to have one of those on the show next week nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Not amazing. We'll also talk with written out a block of dermatology physician assistant who's known as the Durham diva. I want to talk about skin care, because that's all we're doing now, right As we're washing our hands were using sanitizers on our hands and our faces and all parts of the body that we won't even talk about on the radio right now, But I will ask her about that next week, and I know that she feels we don't protect ourselves appropriately in the winter against the sun. Why do we need to do that? Ah, Betty White, celebrating our 99th birthday once told me that my idea of exercise because I said at some point I don't remember five years ago eight years ago. What interview it was she was much younger. She was probably 94 or something. But I said, What is your idea of exercise? And she said My idea of exercise, just saying the word exercise, But Michael Moody, who's a fitness Coast probably feels well, That's not quite enough. Betty White. I suspect you feel that way, Michael. We've now all got all these APS. And I've got one. I count my steps. I look every day and I until I talk to you was happy about 10,000 steps. But no. You're saying 20,000 steps and are these apse which measure everything. Are they a good idea? No doubt any level of accountability could help us take that next step by literally with our goals. But we also have the You sure that it doesn't become an overwhelming experience? Just talking to a client earlier, who was checking his weight daily, there was a point where it became overwhelming for him. We're almost he wanted to push away the entire experience. So right now, Our biggest challenge is how do we create an immersive experience the elbows what their goal and to provide the accountability that we need and luckily with technology Between the coltan abs and more. We have the opportunity to really pair something up with our personality and something that's motivating, no matter what. You wanted to be fitting to your lifestyle, your approach to things, But you have to know what that boundary line is. At some point If you're tracking your food every day doesn't become such a task that you end up pushing away. Well, maybe you find a way to only do 20 to 30%. But for the reason why clients hire me as a trainer It's the accountability the psychology of the experience that's going to determine whether or not you're successful long term. So how much of it is all in our heads? So let's say I'm training to do a five k 3.1 Miles, which is doable for many, many people how much of that is really psychological rather than physiological. If we think that, in order to reach success, we just need to find that perfect combination for physical mental emotional Selves. It seems like it may be something easy. The information is out there. There's no better time in the history of all humans to have access to such a resource is you don't even need a trainer. But the biggest challenge here is taking this information and apply it to your body and knowing what you need. But hands down the psychology of this goal attainment or seeking this goal is the biggest challenge. Now. A lot of people think that it's the physical side that holds one back. But it's the reason why the last 20 years I've been studying psychology. My book is about psychology, My podcast about psychology, really helping my clients. Get Had the question isn't whether or not they're going to reach your goal. The question is, how long and what are they going to do when these obstacles present themselves in their day to day life? And I have another question. Is that the right goal? So does some people come to you? And you said, Well, some people don't even need a trainer. Well, one of the advantages I suspect of having a trainer. Did you get to know the client at first? Just a little bit, but enough to know that why are you setting that goal? You can do so much more. Maybe the reverse. It's like, okay, you need to walk before you can run. You're not ready for an ultra marathon when you can barely cross the street without huffing and puffing. Yeah, We definitely have the examine Why We have this goal on It doesn't matter if you're with the trainer, and now you want to bring all the information that you found about yourself. Yes, you have to become a human scientist and really studied the trends and patterns of you and put it on the table. You could bring that goal as well. Press You want to run a marathon because this plan suggested it. Or do something similar, but you have to really see if it's a line and somebody with a history of injuries. Maybe doing something with such impact is the most ideal. But you could find a way to adapt. So really someone coming in to see me the first phase, no matter what the goal is to really explore who they are, And that's something that all of us should be doing. I think of my life. In line with a fiscal year and we have quarters and every quarter I do a check in with myself, just as you might checking a spreadsheet. I really look at my habits.
