Then the BBC. This sad thing is they don't do as many gigs as a lot of other bands so you're really got to look form. To play. I guess on the other hand it. I guess they enjoy their family lives. You know their wives sometimes don't like it when their husbands -- out every Friday and Saturday receiving the adulation of many women.

For history for a 10200 years from now when but obviously I'm strongly assuming all of the people here will be in the museum somewhere with with everything else. That that I know my partner in life.

And -- knows of what he speaks -- be careful partly cloudy and cold tonight below six windchill advisory pops up later and right now what is at minus eighteen. Yeah minus eighteen with the windshield so little bundle up and look out for those areas were -- now let me get back to Gary in Lancaster. Yes. I'll list and so I was. We will go at it can't prepare and we would look at the and there would be like I don't when he and it you know what I mean. People that we -- every -- rule. There was able appeals. In black white album. What I want to order again. That was the first one. In I don't even know like you're. Actually found that but it we found that and we used up -- And I'm telling you were responsible. And make him musician I played trumpet. Is it just turns out that I get in music in my heart. But in I didn't have guitar and drums are not a bad. But. They're responsible. For me it's not music that they. In my life. You know here it's great when I was thirteen years old you know what I picked up. And you know my guy is I don't know I've got more. I'm not -- Miller. But -- you have to understand -- a problem player so I knew all of these different things you know it's not just. What I know. That was just what I picked up on campus bad day. But at -- used as you well Mosher and -- well versed in music of all -- it seems and The Beatles and reduced arm work just years. And a George Martin's sir George Martin. When you listen to all you need is love. There's no horn section Beers at trumpet and there are trumpets and many beatles' all. Here is what I am saying I -- rate -- professionally. In the wedding being mentioned on same back in the eighties and all that I did my thing. And we still have the locals -- the post was about. The Beatles and locals. You couldn't compared to them they were so perfect. Very you know there are some voices Gary thank you for the call I love your motion your passion is infectious thank you thank you thank you. But locals are. Locals are soul. Import and there are some voices that just go together and just make liquid gold and The Beatles. They nailed on WB Ian traffic is a mess in some spots because of the blowing snow that is so -- Alan Harris with an update in six minutes. After Clinton jovial and never play with the music today because. Com Joseph separated by a generation or two. Am watching you all these pick out these songs and he's singing along word for word. And that's why do they showed today -- and I had a great conversation in his office market by the year. And I do wanna do another show on heroin and other addictions. Honestly -- today being a Friday. I don't know that I could have done another one as good as yesterday. Yesterday Scholl was. I don't mean to brag but it was probably some of the best radio. And probably some of the most important radio I've ever done in my life. I guess it's -- a lot. Because I think. Look if you think you get better with every shall you do a -- what you do as a performer you're in the -- lot of work. And next week you're gonna be better than this week. You always have to try to be all sorts. I said at bats. Also a theory -- -- my book I don't know what the hell I'm talking about. Joseph takes notes on all these little tidbits of actor out there. But we're talking about The Beatles fifty years ago arriving in the United States and how it affected your life. And for those were just tuning. The past example I can get of the impact of these four guys from England. Is the fact that -- now 23 year old daughter. And my eight year old imam. Could saying probably 200 songs. By Lennon and McCartney together word for word. Now folks. I'd -- he really hard pressed to come up with another performer. Or performers or bands. Where you can get people of such disparate ages. In love with the same music. If I assure you my mom would not be able to recite a single word of Tupac. Absolutely positively no way. I mean let's put it this way. Oh -- the old school rap but even my mom would be hard pressed to do Grandmaster Flash you know and I'm -- But The Beatles absolutely. And certainly by the sounds cool to say after -- olds who see this column. And for racist and serve early and that's pretty. It is 5360 by the way just if they were altered at the moment but. This kind of ironic that the guy arrested yesterday. Because of having gone at the school. Is ironic that he was one of the speakers against analyzed it at that sparsely attended rally a few months back. He he is. Our NY say. He was more analyze it. And it you'll discover. What it's like. Draft all of his weapons. Well -- at all over yes. And he he will lose a pistol permit not a doubt my body will be revoked permanently and it probably will be banned from buying any longer -- Meanwhile the pop star point drops an empty holster on the ground. Had that this Jane Q citizen. That citizen would have lost I would bet you anything. Would have lost a pistol permit because. It's real simple for for them -- to say well if you're that irresponsible with a holster even though was at the what if it had a gun and bye -- pistol permit. Which is one of the reasons I'm saying bye -- New York State not by WB yen but by by New York State. Who needs. Let's go to press on WB -- Chris your hello. Hey I'm great show thank you thank you. And that that it. Growing up with 13 side boys and her family at ten years old Beatles now. And -- -- -- they were appointee. Burris when I first heard them I'd like them. And wanted me. Because all my other Brothers or whatever or different -- it. There are girls there point there and posting from chase stadium and the captors have. Really impressive but guys and the tension in the city. Dollar known and known not known known at all. So all of them footage there are guys there with the horn rimmed glasses -- clearly we're still in mourning over the -- the bloody hole on February 3 1950 and along with the big upward originality that. When they first came -- debt that was my feeling to bottom but it -- well it did become OK two to listen to -- and the like them but. I first heard compound yeah that's awesome I I like that but I didn't want to admit it. OK so basically you that The Beatles when they first came out almost like we'd look at the you don't put together 'cause medically perfect boy band they market today for the teenage girls. Exactly that's exactly what -- what. I perceive them to be a test results. OK was there a point when you realized that The Beatles music in fact was transcendent. Bet it was so far ahead of its time and better than anything else that was out there at the time. Absolutely and I I don't think it would have been very long. Maybe for six months or something like that but I don't remember it being long. After I heard -- the first to hit that they had I wanna hold your hand and she loved you. And my sister had the album in court that you in the big pictures that are appealing on the walls and everything -- but there was a point. Maybe six months afterward. It was kind of like on its -- and these guys -- But I did like them that they currently has stated. That it. I know what I gotta tell us up them. Up I'm not big on on the music has it just it's not my bag may be really it's not mine but -- Justin Timberlake. Now I'm not supposed to like Justin Timberlake right right I think he's funny as hell I think is a talented performer. And I got to tell you that he's a really nice guy he's not -- he's not Justin Bieber. I mean seriously I've never met him I had my daughter -- and he was just a total gentleman. Well pretty neat and by the way -- ahead of beatle base. Popular beatle base and I sold it. Okay did you play -- left him. -- well I played drums and the court that dropped you know and -- an epidemic and it complained wrong but I like it was a right handed. Beatle base it was a race -- state. Where we say -- something of bass guitar you're you're you're talking bass drop. Know what not but I had a legal basis well the beatle bass guitar as well. And but the beatle bass guitar it was right handed but it was it was up here beatle -- it was my left. -- that name sounds awfully familiar I think one of my Brothers might have one of those guitars along the way. They were that was a great looking -- have looked like comic violent I think. I think my brother's first wears a silver tone from Sears. Unless -- confusing that with the amplifier. Might Wear. Out ten. Well. All that was unfortunate. Up like they like put that -- -- eleven and you put the fuzz on -- out of like Alvin and the that you're here how bad your work. And I was like Albert -- that they. Years after going room by helicopter. All right thank you very much and magical. All right what a great cake originally thought they were a boy band as we call them today and he realized. Now. That. By the way. Sargent pepper gets all the praise. -- -- I think the white album is as good or better than sergeant pepper. Now Brian Wilson and the music scholars may disagree with that assessment but when I listen to the wide. It still blows me away. Happiness is a war gone back in the USSR. -- let the public. There's some great songs on that rocky raccoon. It is a phenomenal. Collection of songs. I felt that for Ringo. OK I think with that reducing what it. It worst Beatles imitation ever it's 542. At WB -- by the -- -- has traffic covered but if you see any major Mongolian cluster. That we need to -- The number to call for a traffic hotline is 80303218030321. And we have had situations notably around the curves today like the one. You know at curbing that -- that was definitely designed by somebody asked that the 198. Who signs are that way. Only somebody on drugs. In 030930 at WB Ian. All right it I told the couple weeks ago I had the chance to be some -- United States Marines -- here at -- and and as you know I've got a great connection whether soldiers and one of the reasons I have a great connections with our soldiers is that. I don't put them up on pedestals. And I think the fact that they are guys and ladies just like you. Just like IA and yet they're willing to do what they do what makes them special. And folks I know that your well intentions I really do put please believe me when I tell you. They all want adulation. They don't want hero worship it makes them uncomfortable. What they want is a simple thank you for doing what you are doing. Thank you. That's all they want. -- -- because he's he's he's been there with his buddies to. You know all players of them when I see a guy -- a lot birth to admit this at all I told you about it when I was in the diary republic of the Dominican Republic. I saw a guy wearing his Vietnam veteran -- And -- -- Wiltshire. I reached out a game hug. And I said I was a little boy when that crap to but he used that word went down. And I wanna thank you for what you did. Because it that you guys screw it and he started crying. I mean tears of gratitude I started. Because. For him to be approached by this long haired guy he is probably think of -- all the baby killer. But I give up big hug. And boy did -- appreciate. Of all of the veterans I find the Korean guys. And the Vietnam guys are most appreciative of the -- use because they never got the rates. But please. In the name of all that is -- Do not. Make them. In to something or not it makes them uncomfortable anyway again invite for lunch with some local Marines. Absolutely positively one stipulation I've -- Let's go to. Traffic right WB and thank you Joseph and here is kiwis have that might -- going on here -- should -- here is -- Harris.

It's going to be another single digit night temperature down to six National Weather Service is flying that wind chill advisory just in case you didn't realize it when it's single digits and when the wind blows with -- velocity it's really cold so please be advised. And if you're driving tonight. Guys seriously to ninety in the 4029190. Any any wrote it as -- were close to open field if those winds are picking up any snow on the road you've got to consider. As the possible killer and come -- try to dramatize. Dramatized. Seriously it's slick when it's like its policy get hurt believed to be in five minutes early to the party ain't worth. This has been a public service announcement for them by the grammatically challenged. Let's get back to the calls on that WB and we're talking about The Beatles and it's it's nice to do a funny show. As we damn seriously. And if it wasn't The Beatles. Was there a group that just did it for. Seek to me it always was and always has been The Beatles. And I must also confess Bob Dylan. Probably if not the biggest a Barry closed a very close second to The Beatles in terms of influences. Com. The first I heard Bob Dylan I thought it was some drunken. And then. I started listening to the songs. And the full version not the birds version but the -- version of mr. tambourine man and even as a little -- it. I stood up and I said blow. Today it's beneath the diamonds guys with one hand wave in theory. Says the wicked side this I'm about a kid and I'm listening to this conflict and this is unlike anything I've ever. Which I was a kid but as an adult it blows VO. When you notice -- a sensitive guys in times when it comes to music. Let's go to Carolina should talk one on WB and hello -- I. That can bring up seven.
