    133: Last Of The Greatest Generation

    133: Last Of The Greatest Generation

    If you were at The Great Cut, you will recognize Alan Tran as the man with a full-body video apparatus hustling around filming and hammering coffee for about 14 hours. 

    If you weren’t there you can thank Alan for capturing the powerful and emotional moments beautifully portrayed in episode 9 of our docuseries on The Great Cut, Record-Breaking Success.

    Alan was among the very last at the venue, a man who stayed until it was all over, and who since The Great Cut has dutifully grown a long, silky, perfectly straight, extremely well-cared-for rich dark mane, which he intends to donate in 2024. 

    Just returned from France, Alan Tran was part of the team who created ‘WWII Vets Return to Normandy: An Emotional Journey 79 Years After D-Day.’

    The touching footage in this short film highlights the camaraderie among 43 veterans as they reunite on the hallowed grounds where they once fought side by side—many of them returning to Normandy for the first time in 79 years. 

    You’ll hear about his desire to serve, the depth of his gratitude, and his remarkable experience filming The Greatest Generation, when you listen to Alan Tran on Let It Ride. 

    What you'll hear about:
    Filming in Normandy and the local significance of D-Day. The last living veterans of The Greatest Generation.  A marathon day at The Great Cut.  His very particular hair care regimen. How much he’s donating in 2024.

    132: From Mad Men To Mad Zen

    On this episode of Let It Ride we connect with “Zen-howlie-mad-man” Larry Feinstein, whose life is a testament to the power of transformation and the pursuit of passion. His early career in the world of advertising was a high-intensity whirlwind of creativity and deadlines, a path that eventually led him to seek more fulfilling endeavors—including long, adventurous hair at high speeds.

    Leaving his cush advertising job in New York City, he headed for the American southwest. On his journey he found a new sense of freedom in motorcycle riding and Zen Buddhism. In this show Larry reveals how constant exposure to nature and a disposition of mindfulness led to his long-abiding blog, Mind And The Motorcycle.

    What you'll hear about: 
    Being a “Mad Man” in the advertising worldHiding his long hair in corporate americaLeaving NYC for the southwest USAGoing full blown Hunter S. Thompson Lessons and revelations from nature

    130: Long-Haired Foot Locker Exec Gary Harper

    130: Long-Haired Foot Locker Exec Gary Harper

    Art Informs All

    From “special” classes in high school all the way to the top of Foot Locker, art has been the common thread through the ever-evolving career of Gary Harper. A performer, sign painter and death-defying fine artist, he can't seem to shake the hold art has on his life.

    This lifelong enthrallment has taken him from a dyslexic sibling of seven in a chaotic household, to sitting across from the president of Nike—and telling him to shove it. But that was only the beginning of an illustrious career as an advertising executive.

    Death Can Wait

    His exploits in the boardroom might have never happened though. In an accident in his youth, Gary drowned and was actually deceased for a period…only to return from “the other side.”  

    In his recollection it was “the best;” and he tried to bring that energy back with him, that he might communicate the feeling through his art. We’ll let him tell the rest of that story on episode 130 of Let It Ride.

    What you'll hear about:
    -Performing theater…in the nude
    -Living in a commune
    -Climbing the ranks at Foot Locker
    -Drowning…and coming back
    -Sticking it to Nike
    -Conquering fear, uncertainty and doubt
