Chris Rogers on working backwards, switching off and riding the rollercoaster
Today's guest on this episode of Lessons Learnt with the Greats is a true batting technician and one of my favourite teammates, Chris 'Bucky' Rogers. Bucky was a run machine as a left-handed opening batsmen, compiling more than 25,000 runs and 76 centuries at first-class level, not to mention his 25 Tests in the Baggy Green. It's why there is perhaps nobody better to talk batting technique and the mental side of batting than Bucky, who shares the lessons he has learned across his playing and coaching careers. Bucky also shares his experiences with the media, investing and the inspiring people he has met in this fascinating chat. I hope you enjoy it. Episode Rundown 02:30 - We start with an honest declaration: Bucky and I didn't see eye-to-eye when we first met but when he returned to the Test team in 2013 we hit it off and became great mates. Here we remember that first meeting before talking about Bucky's career highlights. 12:45 - Bucky then shares his expertise in the art of batting and how he found what worked for him. 28:08 - The mental side of batting is just as important as the technical side so here we go in deeper into the methods Bucky used. 39:15 - Bucky has been on either side of the media and here he shares his experiences. 44:52 - Here we speak about investing and what Bucky would have done differently if he had his time again. 50:00 - The mantras and sayings Bucky lives by. 55:31 - The inspiring people Bucky has met. 59:50 - We finish with Bucky sharing the books that have had the most impact on him.   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Pioneros: Pete Seeger (6de6)
Pete Seeger, es uno de los grandes e influyentes músicos de folk norteamericano del siglo XX. Ha sido y es maestro y referente de artistas tan importantes como Joan Baez, Bob Dylan o Bruce Springsteen, por citar algunos. Sus composiciones fueron éxitos pop en los años 60 versionados por otra gente, se podrían mencionar “If I had a hammer” por Trini López y por Peter, Paul & Mary , “Turn turn turn” y “The bells of Rhymney” por The Byrds o “Where have all the flowers gone” por The Kingston Trio y por Peter, Paul & Mary. Nacido en Nueva York, en 1919, su carrera musical se inició en la década de 1940, al integrarse a las bandas The Almanac Singers (donde también participó Woody Guthrie), y The Weavers, con los que tendría éxito con canciones como “Goodnight Irene” de Leadbelly. Siempre mantuvo en su obra una cuota de compromiso social y de defensa por los derechos humanos, lo que le valió una persecución política en su propio país por parte del Comité de asuntos antiamericanos, quien lo condenó a doce meses de prisión, aunque por un error técnico sólo cumplió cuatro días y diecisiete años de total y absoluta censura en los medios de comunicación. En los años sesenta con el auge de la cultura Hippie, y los cambios que causó en la sociedad, su carrera artística fue relanzada. Popularizó en Latinoamérica su versión de la canción “Guantanamera” y se opuso fervientemente a la Guerra de Vietnam, a la que le dedicó el tema “I feel I’m fixing to die Rag”. En 1963 logró un gran éxito con el álbum y la canción “We shall overcome” (No nos moverán). Es el compositor de clásicos como: “If I had a hammer”, “Where have all the flowers gone”, “Turn, turn, turn” y su mayor éxito comercial lo tuvo con “Little boxes”, composición de Malvina Reynolds que llegó al número setenta de Billboard. En 1994 recibió la Medalla Presidencial de la Artes, en 1996 entra en el Rock and Roll Hall of Fame y en 1997 el Grammy en la categoría Folk. En 2009, ya con 90 años, y durante la Ceremonia de Asunción Presidencial de Barack Obama, Pete Seeger tocó junto a U2 y a otros artistas en el Lincoln Memorial de Washington DC.
