Good afternoon I'm -- in forward Dodd who is in fort Garland during a think tank on Friday's. A today August the first is the birthday of MTV and MTV first run of the year on this day in 1981. And we all remember what it was like an ant -- source when there are likely they actually used to play music videos. This is one of the early videos it was popular MTV Gypsy by Stevie Nicks. And it was considered to be outrageous. At the time. That they spent 75000. Dollars making this video. It's time that was an outrageous amount of money be spent on video today of course.

And there were those who said that MTV would replaced radio infect the very first video ever played by MTV winners by the boggles. Video killed the radio star. And as we know that didn't happen. And and I remember talking about this song on the radio at the time. It did videos and an MTV would never replace radio because radio can always be there with you. And now today it's a little more common to have TV with you anywhere because of technology. Laptops and cell phones and tablets. But in 1981. You couldn't have music with you everywhere and TV couldn't folly can resist this concern that video would kill the radio star and net. Didn't happen.

That would be -- -- the song remains the same as it's kind of documentary which Led Zeppelin but we're talking about a movie it would. It would be bouts. About their lives and I would think that a lot of that would have to include their affection for New Orleans. Led Zeppelin spent a lot of time in New Orleans. They had their big 707. Customize seven of seven. And they would use New Orleans as a base and at the time they stated what was the Maria Antoinette. In the French Quarter that was their home base. And I don't remember the exact cities but if if they have a concert in Miami. If they had a concert in Atlanta. Memphis I think even Saint Louis and Dallas and Houston if it was anywhere in this general region if it was within a a couple of hours of flying distance. Woods opened with live here. During that part of their tour. And that they would get on the jet in the afternoon flight and do the show. And get on the yet.

And we'll take it until high noon tomorrow on sinks radio WWL if Gillis into the mutual fund show you can catch that tomorrow afternoon at 3 o'clock. On WWL. -- -- talking about. A movie about Kurt Cobain. What would be interesting about a movie about Kurt Cobain is there a lot of people to clean my generation. The baby boomer generation I don't think -- Kurt Kurt Cobain the credit he deserves. Did this was part of a movement that was a significant change in music. From with The Beatles and the British invasion had established in the sixties. This in the and in the early in mid nineties this was the biggest departure in music it was just one group but they're -- it was. I guess the lead grew but it was Pearl Jam and sound garden Alice in Chains. But that growing sound that alternative sound in the nineties was the first big big departure. From everything that had been established from the sixties and I think that's something that would come out in a movie about. Recovering. From Mississippi -- you're on WWL. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Yeah. Yeah. Out. Well raised by -- street but Illinois Iowa. A grand old. And interpreted -- in Korea and outlawed but. Amicable. What is it about his life beyond the music that you think could make the movie interest. Well. To -- -- -- do -- are papers are allowed to realize that well it probably be better it is the very early -- Rivera right -- And deputy. He looked pretty good -- -- -- -- very delighted that he actually called me a lot of thought allowed book that brought you through life a little. I thought but you know being directed you know what -- written. Eric is a lot. I thought that will be area to -- -- -- to -- me about him is like. Drive or my appreciation witness and have a great weekend thanks for calling. From Guerrero Steve -- under the WL. They go to about a movie about lacked Clapton. You usually that we get around along -- essentially guitar player you know we had not died at a at a young age and I think struggle with that. But he did he did his son died and two maybe three or four he fell out of the the apartment window. In New York City remember talking about this on the -- when it happened. Eric Clapton rotated it tears and haven't. Inspired by his since his son's death -- -- a horrible horrible death and you know maybe we shouldn't wait for people to die before we do movies about it. I'm Steve -- the show specialists. Here is attacks that reads scoop there actually was a movie and I don't remember the name of it. In my opinion that what is. More abstract or just artsy. I saw it on VHS tape. Eight kids if they give you any clue about how old it is. You can look at but I agree I would like to see a really good movie done on him most about it Kurt Cobain and what a great bands. And and and person he was. What a cool person he was I know Kurt Cobain had his his demons and and many people have their demons that I don't criticize you for that I think actually sand that he's not alive today. Quite often talked in this crucial about. One of -- the satisfying things about being part of the baby boomer generation is all these these stars that are still performing today. Last Saturday Mick Jagger turned 71. Big -- there's a great grandfather. They -- which was part of a generation that didn't trust anybody over thirty. And at some point only in his career -- every -- generated set I don't wanna live past thirty. He 71. Paul McCartney seventy and we -- Bob Dylan 71. The fact that these people art -- this age. And still performing and -- about how active somebody like Mick Jagger still is on stage. I mean this is very reassuring and this is showing that the baby boomer rock generation. It is continuing to redefine every area it occupies and I was three defining what it means to be. Well anymore it's a senior what it means to be older. I think -- just very comforting thing and what Kurt Cobain did was robbed an entire generation. If not seeing what would happen to his life and in what he would be doing today. By like committing suicide so young generations are robbed of the opportunity seeing. Who he would be today here's an update on our -- Euro project -- opinion polls is based on a story about the your idea at northwestern university in Chicago. -- a re doing all of its restrooms to make him gender open.

We still have to talk about America's. Rather. Would like considered to be hysterical few of pot I don't smoke pot to not promoting it. That wouldn't -- if it was legal but I I think it should be legalized despite my personal opinion. But there was a hysteria. About marijuana that goes back to the 1930s. The movie reefer madness came out in 1936 and it was a propaganda campaign to demonize marijuana. I want you to hear the original trailer. From the movie reefer madness this is what America first thought of marijuana. It's. -- boys and girls are having -- top of the local soda fountain innocently they then. Innocent of a new and deadly menace lurking behind closed doors. The burning we need to win its roots. Didn't have -- Okay you'll dvd you do which is vicious crime can be grown in your neighbor's yard. Rolled into harmless looking cigarettes. -- didn't and then it. Or watch case. You'll meet good old. The ones from pride in the strong well. -- -- Destroying Greensboro they -- behind the moment's pleasure. -- Okay. It is -- its. Campaign to demonize marijuana. The original trailer for the movie reefer band is if you haven't seen reefer madness now watch it's like a likely they say rolled into harmless cigarettes. I think we've learned that cigarettes are so harmless. -- to think -- Newman our executive producer Ellis intending or associate producer mark Bernard our studio producer and also with all of the stuff going on with the Ebola breakout.
