True Crime Tuesday presents The JFK Assassination Dissected with Forensic Pathologist Cyril Wecht Dr. Wecht is fearless about complaining about the phony-baloney Warren Commission Report, the absurdity of the president's autopsy, and the media malpractice and cover-up that persists even now when it comes to the coup d'etat that rocked the USA and the globe. Since President John F. Kennedy's 1963 murder in Dallas, medical examiner and lawyer Dr. Cyril Wecht was initially inclined to accept the official theory that one person alone was responsible for the crime. But as Wecht delved into the evidence with boundless curiosity and unprecedented access, he came to understand that America had, instead, suffered a coup d'etat at the hands of rogue elements within our own government. Nobody else has Wecht's up-close and personal experience in uncovering the facts behind this assassination - and now he's sharing it with the world. Cyril H. Wecht M.D., J.D., is an internationally acclaimed forensic pathologist, attorney, and medical-legal consultant who has personally performed more than 21,000 autopsies and consulted on more than 41,000 death probes. Besides the JFK case, Wecht's expertise has been called upon in cases involving Senator Robert F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr., Elvis Presley, JonBenét Ramsey, Laci Peterson, and Kurt Cobain, the fatal stabbings of the family of Dr. Jeffrey MacDonald, the O.J. Simpson slayings, and the Waco Branch Davidian fire, among others. GET THE BOOK HERE: https://amzn.to/3HLqwHp See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
This meticulously researched book explores the concept of fame in all its fleeting glory and confounding inconsistency. Why do so many entertainers do so much better financially than peers who have comparable resumes? Author Donald Jeffries also examines a subject he is quite familiar with; the myriad of unnatural deaths which have plagued the entertainment industry since the dawn of Hollywood. The deaths of John Lennon, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Natalie Wood, and many others are scrutinized in exacting detail. Jeffries communicated with many older entertainers during the course of researching the book, and their perspectives are included here. On Borrowed Fame will be of great interest to fans, celebrities, and anyone with even a cursory affinity for the world of show business. If you're anything like me, and have a hard time not looking at the car crash as you drive by: You will love this book. I'm dyslexic and have difficulty reading but found it even more difficult stopping. The book showed me how very lucky I've been, pursuing my passions; Acting, Class A Speedway Racing and Inventing. - Billy Gray, Father Knows Best, The Day the Earth Stood Still Donald Jeffries' On Borrowed Fame is indeed a revelatory and painful experience. It paints the big picture of the price of Fame in Hollywood. One that mercilessly illustrates through fact and story the real price paid by many of my colleagues and myself. Fame is not a blessing, it's a curse. This book is a witness to the carnage and horrible truth of the matter. Fame is not what it appears to be on the outside. Fame is a glamorous car wreck. Fame sucks. This is an important book that tells us all as fellow human beings that attention must be paid. I congratulate Mr. Jeffries for having had the courage to write it. - Nick Mancuso, Paris 2020 “It's possible to be a musician in the biggest band imaginable, and within a few years be forced to work a regular job.” That ominous statement is echoed throughout Donald Jeffries' whirlwind of woe in the world of entertainment, On Borrowed Time. Those household name actors in your favourite TV shows you assumed were well paid and would surely always have a firm foothold in show business? Not so much it turns out, as stated here: “A regular on a television series is at least as likely to have their acting career end when their show does.” The arbitrary payment structures that seem to have been made up on the spot, the blatant rip offs and the sheer number of early and often suspicious Hollywood deaths that were rarely investigated would make anyone think twice about being an actor. What an eye opener this book is! - Graham Parker, singer-songwriter If you've ever dreamed of being famous--and who hasn't--then Donald Jeffries offers a shocking literary vaccine--so you might avoid those pitfalls. Just maybe! “On Borrowed Fame,” his juicy and richly detailed fast moving dossier, catalogues the long and winding and perilous road trod by some of the most famous names in showbiz. Those talented celebs had one thing in common: They inevitably discovered that fame does not guarantee fortune-- but is often a prescription for bankruptcy and early death. I have reported on Hollywood for nearly half a century but can attest that Jeffries has entertainingly laid out the most detailed compendium of horror stories experienced by some of tinsel town's biggest names. No one is spared--from Stan Laurel to Marlon Brando to Michael Jackson. And so, so many more. His research is formidable. This is the most fascinating chronicle of show business malfeasance, mayhem and misery I have ever read. The Beatles sang “Can't Buy Me Love,” They should have added “happiness” as well! - Ivor Davis

By the time Billy Joel released The Stranger, his fifth studio album, he was at risk of being dropped by Columbia Records. His second album, Piano Man, had been a surprise success, but the follow-up third and fourth studio albums had met with disappointing commercial appeal. Joel had a solid band that had toured with him for his previous album, Turnstiles, and he wanted to keep that band for the next album. He first considered Beatles producer George Martin to be his producer for this album, but decided against him when Martin wanted to use session players instead of Joel's band for the album. Instead, Joel turned to Phil Ramone (co-founder of A&R Recording) to produce The Stranger. The album would produce four singles, all hits, and would be a commercial and critical success. It would also be Columbia Records best selling album release, and Joel's best selling non-compilation album.Bruce and Wayne are out, and for the first time ever, TWO friends of the show Bill Cook and Todd Hendricks join in for this podcast. The StrangerThis title track examines the way we all hide aspects of ourselves, projecting one image to the public while a stranger lurks deep inside. Joel had originally intended the whistling to be a wind instrument, but when he demonstrated it to producer Phil Ramone, Ramone determined that his whistling was perfect.Movin' Out (Anthony's Song)The opening track to the album was also the first single, and is a commentary on those in working class ethnic communities around New York who put in long hours for the appearances of success. "Anthony works in a grocery store, saving his pennies for someday." A Broadway musical featuring the music of Billy Joel took the name of this song as well.Only the Good Die YoungThe third single from the album was quite controversial at the time, because it is about a boy encouraging a religious Catholic girl to have premarital sex with him, though she considers it sinful. The name Virginia comes from a high school crush of Joel's named Virginia Callahan. As is often the case, attempts to ban the song only made it more popular.Scenes from an Italian RestaurantAlthough not released as a single, this epic medley received significant airplay on AOR stations at the time, and is one of Billy Joel's favorites. This 7-plus medley is in three parts, the longest of which is "The Ballad of Brenda and Eddie," two high school sweethearts and their journey through life. ENTERTAINMENT TRACK:Main Theme from the television series “Soap”This parody of the television soap operas premiered in September 1977. It would be highly controversial throughout its four year run, drawing criticism from the Moral Majority, the Roman Catholic Church, and a number of gay organizations. STAFF PICKS:Whatcha Gonna Do? by Pablo CruiseRob kicks off the staff picks with a band named after a non-existent person (think Pink Floyd or Jethro Tull). "Pablo" represents a down-to-earth individual and "Cruise" represents an easy-going approach to life. The song cautions against taking a good relationship for granted. Handyman by James TaylorBill Cook's staff pick was actually a cover originally recorded by the Sparks of Rhythm in 1953. Jame's Taylor's version hit number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and earned him his second Grammy award. Smoke from a Distant Fire by the Sanford Townsend BandJohn WayneTownsend and Ed Sanford head up the band that takes their name, and Todd Hendricks brings us this one-hit wonder. Although the band recorded and worked out of Mussel Shoals, worked with a number of acts, and opened for bands like Fleetwood Mac and Foreigner, they never made the charts beyond this hit.I'm In You by Peter FramptonBrian brings us the title track from the follow-up studio album to his amazingly popular live album "Frampton Comes Alive." A&M Records put a lot of pressure on Frampton to have another hit after the live album, and this was his biggest-selling single, though the album was a let-down to the company. This acoustic version highlights his guitar talents. TRIBUTE TRACK:Memories by Elvis PresleyThis is the month that Elvis died, and this song is our tribute to the King.
On November 22, 1961, 60 years ago to the day from the release of this podcast, "Blue Hawaii" released into theatres. Its soundtrack album had already come out one month earlier and both were destined to become among the most commercially successful and well-loved of all narrative films and soundtracks featuring Elvis Presley. On this very special 60th anniversary bonus, TCBCast listeners get to hear an example of an episode from Justin's revived video essay series "Blue Suede Reviews." Taking Elvis's cinematic career seriously while presenting with heart and humor, "BSR" thoroughly examines how each of Elvis's films were made, the creative teams and performers behind them, themes and ideas contained within that have been overlooked or written off, how each fit into both Elvis's filmography and career overall as well as a wider cultural context, and ultimately re-assessing through a contemporary lens. New episodes of Blue Suede Reviews and hours of early access and bonus podcast episodes are available exclusively every single month to supporters at Patreon.com/TCBCast. If you enjoyed this review, please consider supporting, if you can. If you are unable to support us via Patreon, but want to support us another way, please make sure to share this special review with another Elvis film enthusiast who might enjoy it.
Once a year, Corey (@coreyrstarr) and Jonathan (@berkreviews) like to visit their collections searching for those movies that have yet to be opened. That's right everyone, it's Mint in Box month. Movies that they own but have never seen. It would be possible to just do this podcast with this premise, but they just keep making more movies and they can't stop buying them! As far as the podcast goes, each episode features an in-depth review of the movie for the week. They begin with a spoiler-free review before diving in completely after the needed spoiler warning. However, before getting into the review of the week, Jonathan and Corey discuss what other movies they've seen since the last episode as well as anything else they feel like discussing. To help them decide which of the many films to watch each month they started creating themes for them all.

Nous sommes le 16 août 1977. À Memphis, une splendide maison blanche de style colonial devient le centre du monde. Des centaines de fans se massent derrière les grilles en pleurant, principalement des femmes dont les sanglots s'élèvent comme un seul et même chant pour célébrer celui qui, quelques heures auparavant avant, a été retrouvé inconscient ici même, à Graceland. Nous sommes le 16 août 1977 et l'on vient d'apprendre la mort d'Elvis Presley. À 42 ans. Elvis, une étoile filante du rock'n'roll, surnommé The King, dont les déhanchés lascifs au début des années 50 ont fait trembler les filles, rougir les mères et choquer les puritains.

Think of any number of singers of the 20th century to take to a stage: Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin, Bon Scott, Nina Simone.....”shyness” would not be any sort of adjective you'd use to describe these people. We're not focusing on any of them this time around. Welcome to episode 152 of Love That Album Podcast. To say that Nick Drake suffered from shyness could be the greatest understatement you could make about him. He only performed live a few times in his short life, and from all documented accounts, those performances were memorable for the wrong reasons – not acknowledging his audiences, looking down, walking off stage mid song....the same can be said for his interactions with people off the stage. However, it would also be fair to say that Drake knew his way around a song – both as composer and musician. I am joined by fellow Nick-Head, Antony Rotunno. Antony is the host of three excellent podcasts: Life & Life Only, Film Gold, and Glass Onion: On John Lennon. It is the third of these shows that got my attention. On every show he tackles Lennon related subjects (with occasional forays into The Beatles) to work out what made Lennon tick. I am sure that he relished the opportunity to talk about a musician with no Beatles connection whatsoever for a change. The focus of the show is Drake's debut album, Five Leaves Left. However, we speak in detail about all three of his albums as well as events in his life, his string arranger Robert Kirby, similar musicians, and speaking in a posh accent. In addition, there are two real treats for you this time around. We hear from Antony's friends, Kester Jones and Melanie Lawrence who pre-recorded their take on a beloved Nick Drake tune, and Antony himself armed with his guitar tackles another tune. These performances are wonderful and a great part of the show. My gratitude to Antony for bringing his time and thoughts to the show. A really exciting development is that going forward, Glass Onion: On John Lennon will be part of the Pantheon Network. You can find much Antony related shenanigans (blog posts, albums, podcasts) at https://www.antonyrotunno.com/ Kester's music can be heard at https://soundcloud.com/kesterjones Download this and any other episode of LTA from wherever you prefer getting your podcasts.

Would you believe that a deadly fire at the largest casino in Las Vegas was NOT what everyone was talking about? How could such a monumental disaster not be the topic of conversations all around the country? Find out what was on this episode of TOP FOLD.Top Fold is dedicated to, "All the news that would have been". What does that mean? That means that on 9/11, or when the Hindenburg exploded, or Elvis Presley died, headlines were replaced and stories fell below the fold. What event happened that was huge but wasn't talked about because something else monumental took the headlines? The -name of the podcast comes from a combination of "TOP Story" and "Above the FOLD"-TOP FOLD.Original music by David "Beezer" Wagler.Sources for S3 Ep4 THE BURNING QUESTIONhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MGM_Grand_firehttps://www.reviewjournal.com/local/the-strip/hell-on-earth-40-years-ago-a-historic-fire-at-the-mgm-grand-2181965/https://classiclasvegas.com/clv-history-blog/2020/11/20/40-years-gone-the-mgm-grand-firehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qH7 ln4 Disasters TV showhttps://classiclasvegas.com/clv-history-blog/2020/11/20/40-years-gone-the-mgm-grand-fire https://www.qrfs.com/blog/271-the-deadliest-fires-in-u-s-history-the-mgm-grand-fire-in-las-vegas/https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dallas_(1978_TV_series)https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Who_shot_J.R.%3Fhttps://outsider.com/news/entertainment/dallas-jr-ewing-shot-this-day-1980-leading-who-shot-jr-campaign/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cbl2-RA-_m8

Back in them days of 2002 A.D., when our spines were stout and strong and straight, there were so many audio contributions coming in from so many artists, and so many subjects covered on the various other SubGenius-related shows (especially WCSB's ESO Swamp Radio) that we were making 'theme' shows. The most common subjects were "Bob," the Conspiracy, whatever war was going on at the time, aliens, apocalypses, and, of course, sex. That's what this is; but "love" sounded more atypical for Hour of Slack. Music includes Consortium of Genius, ESO,n The Swingin' Love Corpses, Elvis Presley, The El Queso All-Stars, the Broadway cast of "Guys n' Dolls," StAllio, Heart Ignition, The Bran Flakes, Mark Mothersbaugh, and The Rainmakers. LeMur collages collide with the listener's inner brain. It's radio-safe. http://subgenius.com

Ian talks with actor, athlete, author, and radio personality Michael Dante!When an injury cut short a promising Major League Baseball career in the mid-1950s, young Ralph Vitti took up drama at the University of Miami Florida. A chance encounter with bandleader Tommy Dorsey led to an MGM screen test, and a decades-spanning career in motion pictures and television.At the insistence of legendary studio head Jack Warner, Vitti changed his name and went on to star as Michael Dante in movies with the likes of Elvis Presley, Joan Collins, Randolph Scott, Rod Steiger, and countless others. Along the way, Mr. Dante built a life of charitable giving, celebrity mingling (John Wayne, Sidney Poitier, and Tony Curtis were friends), and constantly exploring new outlets for his creativity.In this super-sized interview, Mr. Dante shares some fantastic behind-the-scenes stories (including filming an episode of Star Trek in 120-degree desert heat); describes the writing of his latest book about the 12 years he spent interviewing movie stars and athletes on his Palm Springs radio show; and what the future holds for this lively jack of all trades.Plus: Ian asks about his star turn in the 1975 Western, Winterhawk; how he recalls stories at age 90 better than most people in their mid-twenties; and the craziest "singles table" in Hollywood history!Show LinksWatch the Somebody Up There Likes Me (1956) trailer.Watch the Seven Thieves (1960) trailer.Watch the Winterhawk (1975) trailer.Listen to a sampling of Michael Dante's classic radio interviews at his website.You can purchase signed copies of Michael Dante's books (including My Classic Radio Interviews with The Stars, Volume One) at his website.Also, be sure to check out my interview with J.R.

Welcome to November 3, 2021 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate star-struck sandwiches and a trick for beating stress. If you're famous, it's a rare honor for a restaurant to name a sandwich after you. Especially if the sandwich is good. For example: the Leonardo DiCaprio sandwich from Lioni's in New York is roast beef, sun dried tomatoes, fried eggplants and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. The Adam Sandler sandwich from The Stage Deli is salmon, lettuce, sturgeon, onion and tomato. And of course, the Elvis Presley is made from peanut butter, banana and bacon after his favorite combination. Be a star in your own kitchen on National Sandwich Day and celebrate with your favorite fixings. We have all heard of the dangers of giving in to stress, but perhaps the biggest danger of all is not being aware of these stressors in the first place. The first Wednesday of November is National Stress Awareness Day, and if you haven't checked in with yourself in a while, it's time. The good news is that there are lots of ways to change things for the better, beginning with developing an attitude of gratitude. Don't wait for Thanksgiving to count your blessings. When life goes off course, this simple habit can change how you tackle even the toughest of circumstances. As Aesop said, “Gratitude turns what we have into enough.” During National Gratitude Month, celebrate the silver linings and watch as the things you are grateful for begin to multiply.

Your Signature Sandwich Says A Lot About You! Welcome to November 3, 2021 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate star-struck sandwiches and a trick for beating stress. If you're famous, it's a rare honor for a restaurant to name a sandwich after you. Especially if the sandwich is good. For example: the Leonardo DiCaprio sandwich from Lioni's in New York is roast beef, sun dried tomatoes, fried eggplants and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. The Adam Sandler sandwich from The Stage Deli is salmon, lettuce, sturgeon, onion and tomato. And of course, the Elvis Presley is made from peanut butter, banana and bacon after his favorite combination.

Peedy doesn't remember a time when he wasn't obsessed with Elvis Presley. His mother started playing Elvis songs for him at three years old and he went on to dress as Elvis for Halloween ten years in a row. In high school, Peedy joined musical theater and knew he was a natural entertainer. He often landed the lead roles and proceeded to compete in theater competitions throughout his school years. Outside of theater, Peedy remained on stage by gigging locally with his rock band. Peedy comes to "The Voice" hoping to inspire the younger generation with his modern spin on old school rock and roll.

"This is the end. My only friend, the end." -Jim Morrison It's time. I've always talked about my rants being censored and saying it was a matter of "when" not "if." Well, I've decided to head that off at the pass and take a break right now. No, I'm not being forced out by anyone, not yet at least, but I am starting to feel the pressure and I don't think I want to wait for the FBI or the CIA or any of those other government acronyms to come knocking on my door and take me on a drive somewhere that I don't come back from. If that happens, there won't be a "final episode" I'll just fade into oblivion and that's not the way the Buckster wants to go out. If I can't go out in a blaze of glory, I don't want to go out at all, so let's call this an extended hiatus. My son Bucky Jr. has got his kick-ass heavy funkin' metal band Bloody Stool just about ready to tour and they've asked me to be their manager. It's a great choice, it's kinda like getting all 4 sharks on Shark Tank to go in on a deal with you because they bring so much to the table, and I intend to take them right to the top and beyond. Elvis Presley had Col. Tom Parker, Led Zeppelin had Peter Grant, the Beatles had Brian Epstein and Bloody Stool has Bucky Haighte. My last piece of business advice for a while friends- don't spread yourself too thin. Focus on what you do best, and right now I need to focus on Bloody Stool and take a break from the podcast. But you haven't heard the last of me. Come see Bloody Stool if you see them in a town near you. I'll be the 6'6" white guys standing behind the merch counter smiling away as his son and his band play their asses off. And bring your earplugs. If you thought Sunn O))) was loud, you ain't seen nothing yet. Never forget to go fast, take chances, kick-ass, and don't give a shit about the names.

Today, rock'n'roller Des Rocs joins me for our first ever episode on the King himself, Elvis Presley, as we get into it on the 1972 live album 'Prince from Another Planet'. We talk about how the album captures Elvis between his two iconic eras, how he existed apart from both the rock era he inspired and the pop that came before him, the frenetic rearrangements of his classic songs, his choice to include contemporary covers in the set, his uneasy history with New York prior to these shows, Elvis's future if he hadn't died when he did, the influence on Des's music and performance style and his other favorite live albums.

Michael is joined by Lauren Ellis, curator of the Bendigo Art Gallery, to find out more about their exclusive exhibition that explores the extraordinary life and style of Elvis Presley. Created in partnership with Graceland, the exhibition features a wide range of costumes and ultra-cool outfits, vintage memorabilia, and treasured items from his beloved Graceland home. Fashion highlights include Elvis and Priscilla's wedding outfits, the repurposed '68 Special costume he wore to meet President Nixon, the diamond-encrusted Maltese cross necklace designed by Linda Thompson, and a dazzling array of Vegas jumpsuits. Personal treasures include his gold telephone, the hymnal book he took to church with his family, his first job application, his first-grade crayon box from Tupelo, and the bongos Priscilla gifted him on their first Christmas together in Graceland.

In this bizarre pro-Confederacy love-triangle run-from-the-law double-crossing western, we see the film debut of Elvis Presley and the dawn of rock stars making their turn as actors.

The regional Victorian town of Bendigo has scored a major coup with a new exhibition to bring many of Elvis Presley's personal and family items direct from Graceland to detail his life story. But standing aback, parallels begin to emerge from the lives of The King of Rock n Roll and a modern pop Queen.
Some Places Roll Out The Red Carpet For The Oddest Reasons. Welcome to October 26, 2021 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate the Southern hospitality of our feathered friends and the workhorse of the Old West. If you find yourself in Memphis, Tennessee, it's likely because you are there to visit Graceland. But once you're done exploring Elvis Presley's mansion, head downtown to the Peabody Hotel. Here you'll find one of the most unique traditions in the country. Each day, there's a duck parade at the Peabody. The hotel literally rolls out the red carpet and leads a procession of ducks through the lobby. As the web-footed celebrities pass by onlookers, they get into the elevator and go to their “Duck Palace” on the roof. It's National Tennessee Day, when we celebrate the Volunteer State and all its citizens. Feathered and otherwise. One of the great unsung heroes of the Old West wasn't even a person. It was the mule. These animals are a hybrid of a female horse and a male donkey, and they inherited the best traits from each of their parents. Mules are athletic and intelligent. They also have greater range of vision and are more sure footed than either the horse or donkey. Plus they are more even tempered. All of these traits added up to one perfect animal for helping settlers expand across America. Mules could carry heavy loads, walk longer distances, and navigate rugged terrain and they were the perfect pack animal and companion for cowboys. On National Mule Day, tip your hat to the animal that helped tame the West, and did so without any complaints. I'm Anna Devere and I'm Marlo Anderson. Thanks for joining us as we Celebrate Every Day.

Live albums aren't for everyone, and if you want to get technical, some might say Elvis isn't either. I'm not sure who those people are, but I'm sure they're out there somewhere. Regardless of what you think about Elivs, live music is something that he did exceptionally well, and if you're looking to get into listening to live recorded music, this might be a proper place to start, A majority of artists might go their entire music career without playing Madison Square Garden. Even fewer artists have the ability to sell out Madison Square Garden when and if they get the chance to play it. Elvis not only sold out Madison Square Garden, but he sold it out five times in two days, and then put out two different live albums from the events, and by putting them out I mean he released one of them literally eight days after the show—which even in modern times is completely unheard of. Released in June of 1972, the album was met with much acclaim which helped the album peak at number 11, on the Top 200 US Billboard Albums Chart by August of the same year. The concert and subsequent albums were promoted as being Elvis' first live concerts in NYC since the 1950s, so to say that these shows and the two albums that came from them were a big deal, is certainly an understatement. Despite what appears to be a rather lengthy tracklisting, the release only made its way onto one double-sided LP. Much later on, Evlis' drummer Ronnie Tutt would shed a little light on why this might have been sighting that "The Colonel" Elvis' manager had the mixes sped up so that more songs could fit on the album, increasing his song royalties.Elvis, As Recorded at Madison Square Garden would go on to be certified Gold in August of 1972, Platinum in May of 1988, Double-Platinum in March of 1992, and then Triple-Platinum by July of 1999. This isn't just any live album and if you ask Kyle, he'll tell you that it just might be THE quintessential live album. I guess you can be the judge of that after you come with us as we talk about everything a live Elvis performance has to offer. It's season 4, episode 17 of your favorite music podcast (even if you don't know it yet). LET'S GO!!!

Keith Erekson is an award-winning author, teacher, and public historian who has published on topics including politics, hoaxes, Abraham Lincoln, Elvis Presley, and Church history. He enjoys speaking at Latter-day Saint conferences and events, including BYU Education Week and RootsTech. Keith grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, served a mission in Brazil, and earned advanced degrees in history and business. For seven years he directed the Church History Library, overseeing expanded online research access and enriched public exhibits, and now works for the Church History Department in efforts to encourage outreach and historical engagement. In this podcast, Kurt and Keith dive into concepts in Keith's book, Real vs. Rumor: How to Dispel Latter-day Myths. Highlights 5:40 Dispelling false history and rumors can help eliminate negative church culture. 6:00 Girls camp story 10:35 Always read the scriptures, talks, etc. in context. Make sure you aren't changing the meaning. 12:45 There are many things that are true but not useful. We can use Church history but that doesn't mean it's useful for the building of our faith and learning. 14:30 Be careful when quoting someone. When quoting make sure to use exact words and the name of the author. Study the context around the quote. 19:20 What should bishops do when you hear someone misquoting in Sacrament meeting or in Sunday School? 22:00 How to go about correcting others and dealing with myths. Always correct with love and the spirit. Correct them only if you have the accurate information or an exact quote. It's about helping each other out rather than proving each other wrong. If you feel like someone's quoting is off, look it up yourself. 28:00 If you feel the urge to share a quote but don't have all the pieces, go home and do your homework first. Find all the missing pieces before you share with everyone. 30:00 Use multiple quotes to prove a concept. You can't just use one quote to make your case. We have to be careful not to teach false doctrine. 36:35 People exaggerate historical events to make them more inspiring. Details get lost Details get added to a story 43:25 Magical thinking: We blow up our stories or historical events and make them seem magical. The gospel should make us look inward. It's not about an outward show. 48:00 Projecting opinions: The scripts that we have are usually built on assumptions. We are acting on assumptions not information. 51:00 Many people are questioning their faith based on information, a historical event, or a quote. We often leap to conclusions and don't know how to think about things correctly. Treat historical events with history tools not church tools. Learn about how history works. 54:00 Change your script to learning: Take in new information with the intent to learn from it instead of letting it take a toll on your faith.

Decades after the rise of rock music in the 1950s, the rock concert retains its allure and its power as a unifying experience—and as an influential multi-billion-dollar industry. In "Rock Concert", acclaimed interviewer Marc Myers sets out to uncover the history of this compelling phenomenon, weaving together ground-breaking accounts from the people who were there.Myers combines the tales of icons like Joan Baez, Ian Anderson, Alice Cooper, Steve Miller, Roger Waters, and Angus Young with figures such as the disc jockeys who first began playing rock on the radio, like Alan Freed in Cleveland and New York; the audio engineers that developed new technologies to accommodate ever-growing rock audiences; music journalists, like Rolling Stone's Cameron Crowe; and the promoters who organized it all, like Michael Lang, co-founder of Woodstock, to create a rounded and vivid account of live rock's stratospheric rise."Rock Concert" provides a fascinating, immediate look at the evolution of rock 'n' roll through the lens of live performances —spanning from the rise of R&B in the 1950s, through the hippie gatherings of the '60s, to the growing arena tours of the '70s and '80s. Elvis Presley's gyrating hips, the British Invasion that brought the Beatles in the '60s, the Grateful Dead's free flowing jams, and Pink Floyd's The Wall are just a few of the defining musical acts that drive this rich narrative. Featuring dozens of key players in the history of rock and filled with colorful anecdotes, Rock Concert will speak to anyone who has experienced the transcendence of live rock.Marc Myers is a frequent contributor to the Wall Street Journal, where he writes about music and the arts. He is the author of the critically acclaimed books Anatomy of a Song and Why Jazz Happened, and posts daily at JazzWax.com, a three-time winner of the Jazz Journalists Association's award for Jazz Blog of the Year.Purchase a copy of "Rock Concert: An Oral History as Told by the Artists, Backstage Insiders, and Fans Who Were There" through Grove Atlantic: https://groveatlantic.com/book/rock-concertFind Marc Myers at his official website: https://www.anatomyofasong.com Read Marc Myers' daily blogs at JazzWax: https://www.jazzwax.comThe Booked On Rock Website: https://www.bookedonrock.comFollow The Booked On Rock with Eric Senich:FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/bookedonrockpodcastTWITTER: https://twitter.com/bookedonrockContact The Booked On Rock Podcast:email@example.comSupport Your Local Bookstore!

The Doobie Brothers went through massive changes during their first commercial peak in the mid ‘70s. This week, we'll feature both eras of the Doobies – the Tom Johnston era and the Michael McDonald years. They talk about the origin of the band's name, the stories behind their biggest hits and the health issues that led to McDonald joining the group. All told, these interview clips from the various members tell a fascinating tale of a band that rose again after a near tragic situation. We also have a brand new interview with Myles Goodwyn of April Wine! Myles talks about the heyday of April Wine, including the infamous Stones concert at Toronto's El Mocambo club. Plus, we chat about Myles' new song “Some Of These Children (They Never Grew Up)” – a powerful lament about the children of Canada's residential schools. And finally, Myles and Tom take a moment to hilariously recount April Wine's battle with the Toronto media – and one critic in particular. In a short segment, we find out the haunting story behind Elvis Presley's first major hit “Heartbreak Hotel” – vividly told by the woman who co-wrote the song. We finish the episode with a wonderful 1986 interview with Anita Baker, whose voice is matched only by her ebullient personality. Anita tells Marilyn Denis about her early career setbacks (one record company guy said she couldn't sing!) and how she rejects the glitter and glam of show business. Anita and Marilyn have great chemistry in this genuinely entertaining chat!
