Ask senator Chuck Hagel of Nebraska posted a second. 400 a lot of black smoke a lot of its debris. The Pentagon itself could hate him but I'm. Make no mistake the United States. Hunt down. Those responsible. For these cowardly act. A list of victims of thing makes him. There are other. Other way. We have we saved all that stuff. That various radio stations across country or put together. Sixteen years ago did you almost forget with all the attention on Burma and hurricanes and you look at the date today and say well. 9/11. So there are open a couple of missed three or go on because it's this kind of picture baca got the the London Turbo Thompson put together that have features Al Gardiner on our own morning show at the time. And we always get a lot of request to all played the the bench is still America you know that TJ. So horrible play that went kind of clever. Play on words. So so we'll all remember 9/11 and I talked to Mike Love and about a half an hour from the Beach Boys song of the paperback version of his book is out so he's a being forced by his publisher to. You're another round of the well of interviews. Oh with special ops are on the country and around solo or. Where his 335 schlep. And and we got him for a full ten minutes so we should be able to get there are really in depth is to. Carl's mental health problems and none. And reduces. A brush with Karl Manson and it's not Karl Manson. Charles Manson. Carl Manson ringer who Carl Manson is but I bet you he's against he's offended now that I've confused him but the mass murderer. So. The the remnants of our Amal are are upon us. But not to any degree that we talked that they might be upon us when we were hanging out here on Wednesday and Thursday and even Friday. We still I don't want to diminish the fact that we still could do. See winds to the extent that they could downed trees will CO fairly good amount array and inch to three inches. And we can have some power outages as the evening goes on and it'll get worse as the afternoon continues and into the evening an instance are two of our clear up by tomorrow morning and overnight. Is still could be or some rain. In the area tomorrow. And I don't literally calling for a nicer conditions favorable conditions. I think they're calling for less wind less rain by tomorrow but they're not really calling for. Blue skies and an improving. All conditions it's it's cold up there are there and and why I can't say called I don't get cold. But. It's chilly out there today guess is not learn a Tommy bahama shirt today. Went out a couple of times. To get my newspaper. Particularly three of them two of them arrived one hasn't won't tell Wanda doesn't because. They're generally really really really good about getting me the papers there had been some sort of situation but. Walking down to the mailbox and they're gonna myself man it's it it's chilly. So. Mum. Took did not warrant on him all the once you're in. They're black mock turtle. This is actually in honor of Apple's big announcement tomorrow for all of the euros stuff that they're it's. There's as many people know Steve Jobs. Copied me on is dress attire blue jeans and mark turtles. I was doing before he was. Puncher must be. John must've been an inspiration for them. I flood warnings in the region not part of the forecast but we are gonna see a considerable amount arraignment at least a fairly steady rain right now chance of rain is like 80% maybe even a 100%. Oh wind advisory in effect until 4 o'clock tomorrow morning for our general area winds of 45 miles per hour gusts up to forty. Just in case say took everything that might. Be prone to blowing away and metal chairs on the back deck and so on and so forth and no start criminal start him in the garage. The rockers on the front porch or secured and how we go so we'll see some wind and I gusty winds will blow blow blow unsecured objects around another tree limbs could be blown down and so you can see some power outages as a result and I hope it's not you because there's a double header on Monday Night Football tonight. Panthers are undefeated. Big day for apple tomorrow. Bad time to be afraid of clowns. The movie if I think it. They most popular. Scary movie ever. Opening weekend. I think that's true. I'd may be like third. Behind and that I don't have the numbers right in front of me although I will by the time we do our read the news today oh boy it took 430. But. 117. Point two million dollars it took in over the weekend. And the next movie up was like nine million or something like that so if anybody was going to the theaters today they were going to see yet. And if you see a red balloon hanging out of my storm great. Really there's nothing to worry about. Really nothing at all. It's already perspectives that we saved from. And. 911. 2001 and all play the bench wearing just a couple seconds we're certain age don't we get requests for these fumes Leon I don't wanna with three doors down one. But don't play the bench you. Who was told America we get always circuit request for that blue ridge parkway just told by the way closed at a high winds in western North Carolina chimney rock and mount mashal state parks are also closed until further notice us. The high winds from Burma were felt there early this morning in the in the mountains but 10 o'clock. And that prompted the National Park Service to a close the blue ridge parkway and that's eliminated access to mount Mitchell and chimney rock state parks 'cause those are also closed. So keep that in mind. Tony five to 31 miles per hour. According to be a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration now turned in the Charlotte Observer to get credit where credit is due. I'm 25 to 31 miles per hour winds start too low whistle through the overhead wires 32 to 38 treason motion that risk of falling in saturated soil conditions and where saturating the soil as we speak. Power lines a terrorist from trees and debris and people may start having a trouble walking at 32 to 38 miles per hour. Telus have trouble anyway. Com and 39 Dow up 46 miles per hour that's when you get into the area of car starting to veer and small limbs breaking and fallen tree threat to magnifies in buildings and power lines though that's when you can get sustained no damage there. So while. So just be aware of other whether or not and what's going on out there are you ready for the bench is stole American. Every you don't you feel like US ally but the binge who live Far East and beautiful. The binge he did you list the whole view this way. Don't ask me why for nobody can say. It could be his turban who screwed on to try to discern from the desert had beaten to break. But I think that the most likely reason overall may have been that his heart was two sizes too small. But whatever the reason his heart or his turban and he's two facing huge bill the cartoons urban. They're doing their business he snarl from his perch they're raising their families are going to church do leading the world their empire is driving. I must GPS's and use troops who I. Are we knew all the use of the s's would put on their pants and issues and addresses. They go to their offices playgrounds and schools and applied whether you would ask the values and. And then they do something he'd like least evolved. Every U down did you build the tall and small withstand all united teach you and eat as indeed seeing you do those anthem. God bless us because. All around their twin towers of you building its stand and their voices would drown debrief sound of the land. I must stop that singing big sit with a smirk he had an idea an ideas that might work. The instills some new airplanes and in morning hours or impress him right into the new group. They'll wait to disaster he's advocates of sour and how can you sing and you can find the tower. The lynch cut these years they were tremendously and also to enjoy their U wailing weeping. Instead he heard something that started quite low and build up quite slow and started to. And the big tour the most unpredictable thing and he couldn't believe it he started to see. He stared at W you've built on trust in his eyes what he saw was a shock disgust and surprise it. You don't build the tall in the small we see without even tell who's at all. He hasn't stopped you grew from C news it's on third down deep in the hearts of the old young whose Twin Towers were standing. Called hope and called pride and you can smashed the towers went home defense. So we circled the size square grooves the floor today and each and at the told the small and we mourn for our losses alone doing local. We still had inside that U pride that you hope. True American means a bit more than total power. It means more than welcome political powers it's more than our interviews the yes so only god bless America. Dresses. Do you. Okay. ID 93 WB table talking beach boy Mike Love next 20. Yeah yeah yeah. And you believe this is why that have been out for a while but the the paperback is out this month good vibrations while we tour. My club along with James S Hirsch wrote the book it's money and sting are read especially if you had any association with the band over their. 55 years were happy to talk to my glove on news 1110993. WBT hey Mike are MM. I'm Rick John thank you print and mail program yeah I Don Imus says listen I've been around longer you're thrilled to have two do the radio schlep to her again for the paperback urgent. Not a bad thing to find ourselves going all all kinds of markets that we. Do we end up talking to which is a good thing. Are you in Tahoe and I've is that are you still live right. What EI have placed in Southern California but my main residences in lake so that's where did the who recorded version of the book. And that's probably an inching day adventure in its own right. I'm Ahmed say if I can't take you often account Larry's one thing I thought it might be fun to talk to you about for a second is Glen Campbell because he just passed. January 1965. As you point out in the book Brian walks in and announces he's done with live performances and and I think that you stated in the book that that was from resentment from Phil Spector in the beetles can you can you go into depth on that a little bit. I'm not sure what. Was taken ill and Brian that he was not comfortable on tour any quit the group and the basically the blood group for the most part of sixty ports in Glen Glen Campbell Tilden to them. For him for several months and the thing about Blanton was fatigue played on the I get around Urquhart do you track. The instrumental track of that. Big hits for us I get around and several other songs he played I could use one of the most go to greatest guitar players. Percival ever that's the first certain. And the recording industry in LA he played on so many debts that so many artists. But the thing that I remember. Vomiting that members so much was how funny he would essentially humor was amazing. Kept us laughing all the time so as of almost fun times ever. On the road was and when Glen Campbell as a beach boy. And he thought so too we told Carson onetime best and the most fun year I ever had he left or shortly thereafter 'cause he kind of knew what he wanted to I do. And then you were you then you had to go find somebody else so you talked to a young producer friend of yours. I'm by the name of Bruce Johnson and say hey go find me a replacement and and Bruce Johnson found your replacement any and the replacement was. Bruce this conflict but. I'd rather self serving replacement. Idea. But no Bruce and Terry Meltzer who ended up Kerry was Doris day's son he was a great producer. And he ended up producing. Our biggest single hit record over Kokomo in 1988. And he and I wrote a couple of songs together. On the way bit. But they had a group that Bruce and Terry did summer means fun which is the beach for his style of recording. And so that Bruce is very gifted and in terms of this keyboard and abilities but he learned based at and and saying hi to play with us. We have. The Beatles were certainly aware of you guys and I am I an and you guys were aware of The Beatles. But did tell me a little bit about the relationship there because. They EUN already established yourself as being huge. And then all the sudden they came out of nowhere was that a friendly. Rivalry for a while or for a was it tense for a while. No absolutely we've looked to each other's stuff infected with the neat thing that I ever call in the book is. Is that good vibrations went to number one great Britain and we you're voted the number one group. In Great Britain number to be in The Beatles and for The Rolling Stones so. Dallas a remarkable achievement but then. Just a year later in we learn meditation from our ratio and I was invited in India. And spent time with in fact George Harrison eyeballs that are our birthday so in India he uncovered 25 side march 15 two bowl crises but all The Beatles are there when I got threatened other going to be there but once I got there. First of all India is spectacular enough being invited Bob Murray she goaded. To them trimmed their to study meditation. OK. But then when I got there in The Beatles are all there are so much music in so much meditation so many lectures and birthday parties it was a spectacular time. Exactly understand why DeMar he she was at dia YMCA camp but the Iraqis in Estes Park Colorado but that's where I grew up was an Estes Park Colorado and and he was there one time and we went down and saw him. Aunt Hoya yeah and I and that's why I say I know I have no idea why is hanging out the middle rocky mountain national park at the time but we obviously know him because. Of blood of The Beatles and and end your association with him and no soul into what. You talked in the book a couple of occasions spoke briefly about gym gear CO. Some he would give kind of been responsible for you guys going out on tour with Chicago at one point did you know gear CO. He always absolutely in fact he came to meet with us and our office and Hollywood. It when he was just its oldest Cadillac his or her around the Volkswagen he had this group called Chicago. Anyone on this it's time and then again and then and our manager this balloon at the time this. Kind of an eightieth and need to record I'm a bunch of money which he didn't have. But the Chicago ended up being like twenty or 25% of the entire volume of CBS records about a year or two later. You guys never recorded it to a caribou or did you. You know we can't help Casey guide and I know that. I knew gear CO I used to work for Barry Fey a long long time ago a whole lot in fact when you guys and I think this was party you're 19752. Words the eight city tour the you do it with Crosby stills Nash and young. One year locations was a Mile High Stadium is that correct. That is correct I was doing Stephen Stills I was garden Stephen Stills dressing room that night and I you and Al Jardine walked past me and none and none manager hadn't that I know so on and so forth. But there have been bad bad I was said that that was a that was a heck of a show and and I huge crowd of I remember correctly which you guys are or are pretty used to. When you guys went out with Chicago you had ideas that. Maybe Chicago started that show you joined a midway through and then you would wind up the show because you had a tendency. As the book points out to sun times. Upstage. Dimmed the bands that you opened for Chicago when gonna have any of that. You kinda got him for a danger of. Well they looked at. That is they were good headliner and we were in the opening act but the musical part of it can only came out and did these two minutes not three minutes last bundled phone I get around helping Rwanda and assert USA usurped safari you know good vibrations that senator he's he's he's he's exactly. And then they have them more. Jazz kind of oriented way of those low performing a lot of solve a lot of great songs I mean no doubt. That I was trying to. Think of a way to make us. Does the whole evening. Progress in a way that didn't do excitement was there an end that so but anyway it was it was just for mobile tour because where we played prominently placed six shows that the old Chicago stadium where the bulls used to play. And you know which that's a lot of folks are incompetent to garner a 100000 people on them just one down. Be they our name of the buckeye gonna let you go obviously that some whistles you've got to go but it's called my life is a Beach Boys actually called good vibrations Mike Love it's written with the James S Hirsch. And it's it covers everything it did it covers. Dennis is tragic drowning death another Carl's cancer enough gives you all the ins and outs of Brian at any given no time on talk about the Charles Manson no. All right time which actually I thought it was inching used to that kind of signified a change in California culture at the time you were kind of leave in the server error and go on into something a little bit. More serious a part of California the didn't really like at that time. You have quite a bit more serious a matter of fact a lot of those drugs drug induced you know bill ST another thing to do so the other there's some great size of the peaceful and experience but there's some pretty early lows to feel so it's all there on the in the book good vibrations while it is these planets thanks heard from. You know. Give me time to talk about it. Hey thanks for giving us the time I appreciate it's an honor to talk to you and good luck. All right there goes my club name in the book is good vibrations and it's available this month and not paperback. I over the traffic sooner we go and boomer Vaughn can't endeavor that guy I think so probably somewhere that. And we have some shows him he's a good guy he's a good guy is the only constant member. Of the band for the whole 55 years and job amazing so low 55 years I you know I wanted to say as are one song you just say on I don't see that and more confident that it. Argues over his music today it was cool wet weather we have man bring as the sunshine do their job we should have played the warmth of the sun with. That's right man for you brought it did though that's great that was great they agree here that while he's up to and that's good stuff you got good stuff to. Drug administration went back to the Supreme Court today and asked the justices to continue to allow enforcement of that temporary ban on refugees from around the world and now. They had Justice Department's. High Court filing. Monday. Followed they appeals court ruling last week. That would allow up 224000. Refugees in the United States if they are resettlement agency in the United States have agreed to take the men. While the appeals court had also ruled that our grandparents and cousins of people already in the United States can't be excluded from the from the country under the travel bans so this afternoon in a one page ruling by judge justice Anthony's Anthony Kennedy. The S Supreme Court issued a temporary decision to let the trump administration keep. The refugee restrictions in place at least for the time being. Kennedy told the challengers to them. I trump travel ban that they have until noon. Tomorrow to submit written arguments in support of the ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling from last week. The drug administration had not challenged the part of the ruling that applies to a temporary ban on visitors from six mostly Muslim countries. So our High Court is scheduled to hear arguments about the legality of all the travel on the refugee bands on October the tenth. But. By that time the original ninety day travel ban would have lapsed in the 120 day refugee day and willow vote just a few weeks to run so the administration has yet to. Say whether plans to renew deals exclusions or expand them or make them permanent and anyway that's a a ruling that could just came down. Welcome my two or Charlotte to the Tampa Bay Bucs.

Another apparently that was another claim we have witness and just society we just witnessed on CBS. In the BC on television another plane has now crashed into the World Trade Center. I would appear purposeful the magic quickness on. Kind of secondary. All of the explosion on the eve of World Trade Center number two of the water that is Associated Press is reporting that a plane. It was a plane that crash. Pentagon and the Pentagon is being evacuated. Today America has experienced one of the greatest tragedies. Ever witnessed on our soil. We will not tolerate such acts. American Airlines flight eleven. Heart of Boston for Los Angeles hijacked by suspects armed with knives. This plane crashed into the World Trade Center. The United Airlines flight 175.

It down and to find those folks who committed this act of terrorism against our nation will not soon. Pearl Harbor we've been attacked by my way of what we've presumed appeal of foreign. Terrorists. Huge amounts of smoke gun blasting away still pouring out of the Pentagon and I do some time now up to this plane crashed into it. A witness said that the plane crashed in above the ground level he thought about the second or third war went well into the fills us. Freedom itself was attacked this morning. I don't faceless. Freedom of the defendant. The United States. Hunt down. And punish those responsible. For these cowardly acts. You know live to the governor has come and Mike Easley who is speaking in Raleigh in the garage Christians they are no known credible threats. To North Carolina. At this time. We have taken necessary it's. An appropriate security measures in response. To events occurring in Washington DC then New York City. Putting Karen Hughes senior advisor to President Bush now speaking with reporters while some federal buildings have been evacuated for security reasons and for. Our workers. Your federal government continues to function effectively it's. We have big federal emergency response plans. And if President Bush's direction we are implementing it the. As a that he did you actually be changing. Buildings you can appearing before a night for a second time today first one in the world trade Howard now. Seven a World Trade Center gone missed skyline of New York. Anybody we have watched the tragedy of an outrageous act of barbaric terrorism. Terrell not fanatics keep congress stands behind our president. And the president. Speaks it's one voice for this entire nation this is. Indeed the most tragic power.

Passengers were stranded at Charlotte's airport a little bit earlier.

We've been excellent team continues to work very well together here at the emergency operations center. The Red Cross is actively soliciting blood donations in the wake of today's tragedy Pelletier and lined up in large numbers to your blood in response to terrorist attacks in new York and Washington. And more blood donations are likely to be needed for the rest of this week thousands are dead the worst told a New York. But some survived police sources authorities have come phone calls from people trapped in the Twin Towers. And then it was the construction manager for the trade center where 50000 people worked this in the towers could have withstood a plane crashing into it. The 24000 gallons of aviation fuel melts steel and terms of the people will enforce a couple 100000. Police. Just staggering. We'll leave thousands. Meanwhile residents are putting American flags on front porches and wants to James Brown of Medford acres and he Charlotte says he's put up money flags one for each home in that neighborhood chart and condolences to the families have lost loved ones stand. So the country minimum I'm in terrible terrible. Tragedy has fallen my nation but has fallen all the nations of this region all the nations of the world fast those who believe in the morning. Once again we see. Terrorism we see terrorists people. Don't believe in democracy people who believe that put the destruction of buildings where three murder of people they can somehow achieve a political. They can destroy buildings they can kill people and we will. He's saddened by this tragedy but they will never be allowed to kill the spirit of democracy and they cannot destroy our society they cannot destroy our belief in the democratic way. You can be sure that America will. What this tragedy and the way that brings those risk. Possible to justice none of us will ever forget this day here we go forward to defend freedom and all that is good and just. You know world. Thank you and god bless America. I've a bill Friday news. In that little clip that was a produced by boat Thompson back 'cause sixteen years ago features Al Gardiner from mud WBT's morning news of the it was gold Charl morning's news then. And it's always could Urals was again but bill pride bill pride as the bills an old school news guy. And a chance still to come here working WBT. I'm not gonna wanna speak for him gonna figure was Margaret. Try not to use the word pride. But I I think it just it was one of the if enemies of his career ought to be a part of this place at the time men. We used to kill bill because he would start prepping on Saturday morning on newscasts Friday evening I'll be just this guy was. Just a consummate professional. And let me hear his voice again I've tried forgotten how well a great voice he has got deepen. So why he went off toe wasn't Kentucky. Mississippi just spend a terror basically retire and spend time this grandchild beds and as far as I know. Still there we have heard a thing about bill that would. They president of Monty it took part in the commemoration. Today's anniversary of 9/11 no sixteen years ago. They had a moment of silence when the first plane hit 8:46 AM. And they. Then did an observance at the Pentagon site of those second attack. The two planes hit an 846. And again at 937. Not to get back 937 was when the American Airlines flight 77 struck the Pentagon so. They that they acknowledge that today as well. And then obviously a New York thousands of family members and survivors and rescuers and others gathering at the site for the annual memorial ceremony and I don't know if you've been there. Cents but the reflecting pools are just the coolest thing. Ever. Odds Freedom Tower is nice. Spectacular but it's. I don't know the reflecting pools are. And if you had been down their before first time I had ever gone to New York City I was in my twenties. And I guess I gotta cover more ground I wanted to see Macy's I wanted to see Central Park I want Tennessee were killed or Lennon was shot I wanted to see everything. On and I must walked Manhattan from one end to the other got their 10 o'clock in the morning and then caught a bus out two back to Pennsylvania. Two. On 12 o'clock midnight or something like that. Spent all day long walk and a place went down to Battery Park and came back up and none grab a sandwich from a corner cart probably a hot dog. And sat down and wanted to planters outside of the Twin Towers and just kind of watch the world go by for awhile know so when I went back to. Would see their reflecting pawns I remembered having been down there. Years earlier. And reflecting bonds are just very very very cool. And does so they're reading they have read all the names of the victims again this is a year in the bells tolled the moments when The Two Towers were hit by the hijacked planes in the moments were the buildings collapsed another. Well it's just an annual ritual enough. If you if you if you fall into the category. Of thug waking up this morning and kind of having forgot about 9/11 because of all the attention on Obama. And I end and to some extent just because of everything else it's going on in the world. The upheaval of current presidency or non North Korea and you know I mean just all that dead dead I don't have to be. Does it as they always had died to tell the truth it hit me last night. Only smokes tomorrow is the eleventh day of September. I just never really thought of it. And now than I thought tomorrow is nine elevenths. And when you when you say 9/11 and had. A self explanatory it's a date that none of us will ever forget although. Sixteen years. New York Times points out teaching September 11 to students who were born after the attacks has its own challenges especially for public schools are after be. Politically correct you know we'll talk about that next. Nintendo lose track of time. And. I had quick BT in 1999 and came back in 2001 they are brought me back code to do nights because they decided to go live ignites again they were running Lional I think of the time they've tried my church that didn't work out real well forum. Tom and late to return a number of things trying to recapture the audience that to Henry had been built and it just never quite works and they don't know London decided let me come back in the building. And it's hard to believe that it's been sixteen years but they the decision to go live at night again was talk about good timing I came back on September the fourth. And a week later. Nine elevenths. And now we needed be alive at that particular time. So what I read in the New York Times about the challenge that teachers are have having teaching kids about 9/11 because they were born after the attacks I think. All we have a very beat. Well they'd be like sixteen years and younger. So wrenching article bring it to your attention and. It sometime before we wander out here on we go overseas a lot of branded on WB GA brand and. And you can't have it it is thought he had not heard six. Yes sir I remember it they would achieve gay. And I called you that night and I was like let me get this straight they took over the planes with. But starters. On. New had decided that nineteen city over to take more calls. And none that's one of the reasons why you're not I'll say no they're going to be Petri. Now back to curb for that I think I was told to stimulate. But I mean it was probably a mutual decision the station and all radio stations needed to be lives that day as soon as long as possible.

Wanted to help us some of the owners of their electric cars and buy it remotely extending their batteries range. And not everybody is applauding it. Tesla electric cars. And no this. Are sold with two different battery ranges. But since last spring all cars have come with the battery with a higher range but people who paid little lower range had software the electronically limited it. With the option to upgrade at any time for several thousand dollars more. To the tech blog called elect trek. Reported on Saturday that some Tesla drivers in Florida with a lower range found out that there are cars had been upgraded to the higher one. Without them paying for it. Tesla told the blog that they unlocked the batteries capacity remotely via a software update. Which gives them about thirty more miles of driving on a single charge to help those that are trying to get away from Burma. And although many on the social media praised the move there were some critics who said Tesla is wrong. To artificially limit the range of the cars it sells with when the same battery is used and it cost them no more to provide the higher range. Now whether that Christian criticism is justified or not.
