But in this world bill collectors generally -- except that as an excuse for not paying generally. -- 030930. Start 930 here's Georgia in buffalo on WB in Georgia. As you look back on things what would you have done differently. I wouldn't I would hope welcome surprise to sympathize first the lake is calm like that on. That I just had to call and say I ambled up always wanted to go to college but my husband died I started college at 52. I've been to Europe seven different trend which has never expect -- well and just taking like this sense -- me. You make the best of the situation and I say I. A lot of that upset when I hear people say oh I can't do what you can do what if you make up your mind -- -- -- so to say it again say that again. If you make up your mind -- something you'll be able to do it. But there is okay but but you know what as much as I wanna believe that as much as the optimist -- sides inside of me says George is -- something. There's no way I ever could have been HL player when 99.9. 999%. Of the hockey players out there could ever make DNA -- Well maybe you could and water byte for all we know. But does not to -- all the that he hit to the NHL. Piece of -- Bihac. Well let -- and I within considerations but I mean I never expected to go to Europe and never expected to go to college to start college in doubt throw it.

I'm await some mud throughout the year he is back now playing guitar. Well there where there is no other way. Did he I don't you just talked to him but did he pick up pretty much were left off or that he just. -- was it because if -- player. My experiences when you pick it up after so many years not playing it. A lot of stuff will come back -- very easily a lot of the beginning -- do you just know. -- that in the history of backing them up that had an electric car and of course. Here it was sold at the end of that -- and another one now and Vienna. Friend. Also played together and they play but -- in music that I wanna put my fingers in my ears but they're they're having fun doing it that's what's important. All right well you got a chance to is there any thing looking back. I know that I'm gonna hammer this question -- one more time. Is there absolutely nothing Georgia that you would not have done differently. No because I took advantage of opportunities. And I went through with some. And that's what part of that if I I didn't give my life except that I couldn't change. And I think that's very important. The travel thing is huge how many people do you know in your circle of friends Georgia who'll say all I wish I would -- -- Italy when I was younger I wish I would have gone to Poland well excuse me what's keeping -- now. Well it probably language. Lie ironically enough -- technique and had been determined that worked out there you know I -- dictionary and you can get by and pantomime works beautifully.

And found that everybody. Everybody is -- likely -- your time me and and you got I adapted their way of living not -- you -- Oakland. And I still like these people unfortunately -- I do not speak German. I don't along beautifully. -- -- -- 99% of the Germans speak German better than 99% of -- -- speak English better than 99% of Americans so it's not really an issue the last in the language barrier. Good balance hair out literacy volunteers and I got to meet its. It's people that way. Yeah but I got through the language barrier no longer exist you'll find -- and especially in places that cater to the tourist industry. There will always be somebody who speaks English and probably better than most of the students in the United States. I was in Turkey Turkey of all places and our tour guide spoke flawless English thank you very much. -- it was like a 110 degrees. Isn't -- amazing that -- that is something like that people people locked themselves into what they think they should do instead of all I think I'll try it. Well people make their own prisons I think that's a great point -- and -- get along famously. -- I'm glad I -- your very first call. -- most. -- georgians now you can say. You use it when you're on your death that many many many years and I you can say you know what at least I had a chance to talk to buy hourly so in that sense Milo it was a success.

If you let your life to live all over again what would you have done differently that is my question 8030930. In fact content aria before it begins and it -- -- who -- Democrats who have -- just well the show. And right now. Hezbollah and its trying to publish a -- You can't there was no ordinary time. -- -- -- it pulls away. He's written by the guys from -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The other one place I have absolutely no desire to go friend of mine went there with his family is talking about going up the river in Thailand. I was gonna go. I was gonna go there but I it's no no I can't go there I can't go there there's a there's a problems in Thailand which is very much like an American swear word and the joke is just obvious. Actually it's pronounced who kept. Those who don't know but. As I was saying a friend of mine just got back from Thailand. Man. He was in a boat they were going -- forever. And they were in the jungles of Thailand. And right in the river where people paid and from which people. Fish. You see the raw sewage. Shall we say dropping down. I'm so glad. Back in the USA. Now -- no desire to go to Thailand is you've got guys if you. An honest in my audience because that is a regret people have I wish I would have traveled. You can't go wrong with London. You can't go wrong with England. Germany I hear is outstanding I what's really bizarre I don't really have too much of -- desire to go to Germany even though I'm reasonably. I'm not claiming complete -- -- the end of the year in Germany to be completely fluent in German but at this point. I know enough to translate in most situations that have risen. On other vacations. Stuff all the details yet on that one. All right you know three or 930 start right there at the end 180616. WB the end. The summer of -- and Cleveland yeah. All right let's go to -- all all my life crisis. Throw midlife crisis that has the good part of the issue of life crisis if you think about it. A midlife crisis -- were you assess where you are where you've been verses were you wanna pretty. And I went through and probably a 4546. Years old I did show about it. And actually -- suggested to me at one point you said you know Tom is a possibility that somebody could have more than one midlife crisis. I would say that I suppose there it is but mine was -- It was so profound it was so depressing I would never wanna go back there again. But but I will tell you if you're in your midlife crisis right now if you learn the lessons from your midlife crisis you should emerge from it a better person. I think I did it. I also emerged from it. A lot less concerned about what people felt. -- felt about me in terms of the critics. However we soaked up the -- that's always been great. But as far as the people who are billion us and who seemed to spend their entire lives trying to tear the people now they just don't. They just don't bother me that they just don't. It's like in one ear out the other water up the ducks back and some of you may be aware that up pretty pretty badly savaged. No pun intended. Over the course of the past few months. And a weaker man would have -- Me L I thrive on that strong stuff. And I've told you my inspirations right. Wrote real quickly you've got a -- calls her up while -- but. Doctor Martin Luther carrying. Huge. Inspiration I -- more but I can possibly tell you. Because of his dignity under fire his intellect and his spirituality. All those things together I always like to say just like anybody else was he perfect no he had a thing for women. If they for a lot of women. He was a full Lander he's not us he wasn't a saint. Coretta Scott she put up put it. Dr. Martin Luther King was a great man not a perfect. Dennis Toledo. I he is a hero to me because I know what he went through. I know what he went through in order to achieve justice for. Ethnic Posey and Lindy Jackie went through hell. And I can click of a few other people in my life and you've heard of them to know who have been very very inspirational along the way. I'm sorry I I don't wanna get emotional today because this I wanna have some fun today -- really do but if you wanna talk midlife crisis and what it did for you or how nurture. I'm all ears because I've been there I've done that and I think I don't think I'm going back year. And they'd be regressing to my team is but other net. Here's Leon WBM. Tony. Really what's up. It was a time. -- that start really quickly because I like. Is not usual pressure from everyday so not threatening -- about the notion that our. Published story especially. But -- out -- an -- out there and start. Basically. All my parents. -- from Texas sent out our great. Taxes and Elin article text you a salute to. -- -- -- -- -- -- An article it is nice young black girl. Beautiful girl and a relationship directory they're warriors. And stupidly Antarctic college. Actually. Broke up -- that are. And you know that this city is -- most of them. No kidding you you dated Jessica Simpson and -- dumped Jessica Simpson she was born in 1980. How old -- she's 33 how old are you. 36. You -- did you break her heart. It a little bit because actually. I know no one knows it's and it's hard to explain upper states but actually got a partner. And C and. And we're going somewhere that I don't wanna -- -- settlement business. Now. I -- you know what -- -- -- -- put that. If he's going there I got to get a discount the story I'm sorry. I get a discount that story. I wasn't gonna ask. I have some decor and show. Not much but some. Let's go to use it in the defaults on WB Ian hi. All. I want stated Steve by the way. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Well up fourteen years ago I was playing in a band with with some guys and we lost our drummer of my son was always very talented -- a month. Classical -- and she was -- results and was always loved music but he goes attitude toward -- it was. Quite talented so you can't and so and for a send -- -- leader like so much that made -- a regular. But he was playing with some sort of that is in his high school agent he -- wanted to stay there I advised them since. You know silence and you know what you wanted to establish you know -- probably have a lot more problems you under the music it's just stick with us but. He wanted to be with a friend you know you -- -- -- advise him to stay with us she started playing with the president. Is -- went on to become law moderately successful his music career took -- and he's still what is the end of the -- the world and what now you also get hired by. -- big name artists city's smoke played pretty much everywhere on all the -- action also had a blue since encrypted voice at probably would've gone that -- So when he's just Davies a studio musician. You're -- studio working he also. It's hired by other out musicians he's been downloaded many such Palin on the worst -- I was. He had two Libyan -- right now and they started their so. Is music to it took off because he pretty much did not -- might what. Wow well you know what he knew what was it his heart. And he he followed the dream and I guess the question is always in the music industry. That did he have sustainability. And is he making enough money to have more than a studio apartment in you know the the one hundreds in New York City. Well he's -- he's living -- -- -- he's there he's living off music it's Easter and the with a because when you've got twelve with. With young artist said that -- and he doesn't make it decent spot in her wonder whenever there's a -- easily and has bought it himself what you know he's. He put the trees still twelve in the world and you know he gets an opportunity that he takes full advantage of and that is making money. We don't I'm sure you know this better than -- but it buffalo we actually are holes to a guy who did much the same thing a very television guitar player who went out to California became very sought after by groups like the beach boys and too many others to mention his name is on -- investor. Tom he's no longer whether -- but he was part of that group of studio musicians known as the wrecking crew. And it sounds like your body is almost like today's equivalent of the drummers in the wrecking crew. Does that ring any bells within. It's actually not that they're not you know like it's I'm just glad my son didn't take my advice because like -- it is music career to take off. And -- he still making a living I would be so successful. All right so this is your your son that's that's outstanding. Well how old is -- well. Yeah. All right I'm I'm glad you called thank you thank you very much. It's I'm trying to think you're about advice. That my parents gave me and I think -- basically learn through assimilation and osmosis -- I wanted a job that I didn't hate. I did not -- be a guy who came hole every night and bitch and moan about his job. The people for whom he worked what are you had a dual. You know I wanted the comfortable and feel real good about whatever was I and the up -- And I I have to tell you that with very few exceptions. I mean we're talking it over the length of my career so far I can't think of whole Lotta times of trouble instead. -- -- Well I it's when I was supposed to do it. How about you what regrets do you have it -- you're just joining us I think overall. My single biggest regret if I had the -- that way would be. That I did not go to law school. But. When I was accepted to law school. I was accepted at the same time as a -- radio job offer in Florida that was paying more money than what started lawyers were making. So I was really a quandary. So why did what any red blooded American boy would do I would for the money. Now as it turned out it turned out. But. I often wonder. If I'd be better what I do. Or maybe -- what I do and I go on to law school. And it's not like TV. Every Joseph could you see me working on a out of trust all day living will. No way in hell criminal law turns via personal injury law that turns via. And and just the idea about hourly in the days ago attorney at laws I'm sorry there's some funny there's some funny material there. The head of the office that noticeable every there. So Ariel I can't help myself sometimes it's done in good fun and with respect him. 8030930. Start I've been pretty fair and what they've done. I'm public about the possibilities here that would be kind of fun. They don't 30930 start at 3180616. WB and so I'd bet my only in biggest regret is that I didn't go to law school. Actually wanted to go to law school and earned a Ph.D. at the same time. I used to think I wanted to work -- a network. I wouldn't go to a network now. No not when I syndicate of -- myself. I work everybody else. Candidate they were -- and you make sure you give us all on the WB and traffic hotline 8030321. We always appreciate that AccuWeather cloudy and breezy tonight a little rain especially in the evening like where all the time we get out of your guys are gonna get all wet. The temperature will be 44. Tomorrow little cloudy don't look at me like that cloudy most of the time breezy and cooler shower in spots. 49 hi Joseph I hate you. I Sunday's sun and some clouds in 52. Right now it's 63 at news radio 930 WB EM I'll say this much about the -- gang how many of you woke up. And you stepped outside this morning -- pleased about eighty times to raise my hand I did. I had two doctors appointments ahead I had to get to before -- came into work today and the first one no not the allergist I don't do that anymore but all my gosh. Seriously. I step outside it was it instantaneous. Like it was Arab multiple sneezes. I couldn't do that again if I tried. I don't know how badly the pollen is affecting you were even close to peaking yet do you realize lack. Now the good news is hopefully. Your -- his immediate response. Hopefully as we are gradually exposed to the allergens your body and my body will fight off the sneezing and all the other allergic symptoms. You know -- walloped with the peak right away you know hopefully will build up to Axl won't be as bad as I think it's going to be -- Holy cow -- of the user. But today. Back you know what the young lady at the doctor's office come to think of it. She looked like she was struggling today about 9:30 in the morning I set this is not my business but. Do you have allergies and did you sneeze a lot today she looked at is that how did you know. It's like I can tell because I did the same thing I can see it in your eyes yes thank you. So up for those of you with a sensitivity to tree pollen by my sympathies are far worse things. The one get in do work at plus apps are just these feels good. Anybody out there who actually likes this these. Mind. It's almost cathartic. Is not. Don't go there don't know I'm not going our. But anyway again it's your -- hourly on a Friday. And bed this week you guys did not want serious we did one serious show that was mind blowing. And men and not a good way and then the other ones I try edges that you guys you guys just wanted. Other human interest up this week that's fine. That's fine I think you're my audience I wanna be I wanna be what you want I wanna offer what you want during any given week or -- audience. I'm willing to pay and make it worth your while I don't know. Really willing to you but. A couple of things number one looking back on your life. Would you have done anything differently if so. I told your mind pretty basic. And it. Let's get -- midlife crisis because there is a nexus I think between the two questions do you believe in midlife crises I'd. -- -- -- Not the first time on WB.
