BC: Thank you very much, good evening, hi, thank you.
BC: Thanks a lot, thank you. (Southern accent) How y’all doing out there? (normal voice) How are you doing up there? You all right?
BC: So this is uh, the first time I've ever played piano in public in my life. Heh heh. [unintelligible sentence.] See, what's funny before is like, I never played piano, you know, so and then I came out Mike was back there and I couldn't see the piano and then, you can see I'm a professional so.... This is a song that I wrote at home on the piano so I thought I'd play it for you.
Crestfallen (Billy plays piano)
BC: Heh heh. We're very uh, we're very honored to be able to play at the Grand Old Opry tonight. We had to uh, we had to promise the Grand Old Opry we wouldn't play electric, heh heh, guitar so they'd let us play here but...of course we didn't promise that we wouldn't play loud but we promised we wouldn't play electric. But it's a great honor to um, to um, be part of a long tradition of great country music, although we're not playing any country music tonight. Country music is along with blues music was the foundation of rock and roll and...there are many great country pioneers who made it possible for us to act like fools today. I'm gonna put my foot over here on this piece from the original Opry, get to soak up some of the vibes...to help me. Osmosis. Everybody okay then, you alright? You guys don't look the same as you do normally on that Nashville network with the little....

Iha: Thank you very much. Thanks a lot, you guys have been really great tonight.
BC: [unintelligible because his mic isn’t working properly.] (Satanic voice) Hello, hello, hello.
Iha: Oh, come on Nashville. Get those hands in the air, come on. Let's get it on. Alright, now it's time to be serious again.
BC: We'd like to uh, heh - HELLO!
Iha: Yeah, heh heh heh.
BC: I’m not used to not screaming. Heh heh. We'd like to take a moment to meet the people from W.O. Smith School, heh. The charity that we're donating to, your money, tonight so um....
Guy from mayor’s office: Today, with the folks with the school, my name is [unintelligible] and I’m from the office of Mayor Phil Bredesen. [unintelligible]. Basically, they are the reason the whole thing is as y’all know that the mayor really appreciates your generosity for the W.O. Smith School and today in Nashville is Smashing Pumpkins Day [unintelligible].
BC: Did you hear that? Today is Smashing Pumpkins Day.
Iha: I did hear that. [unintelligible]
BC: [unintelligible].
Guy from W.O. Smith School: Thank you. My name is Joe [unintelligible] W.O. Smith Music School. As most of you know, the money from tonight’s ticket purchases came to the W.O. Smith School. We are absolutely thrilled and excited to thank Smashing Pumpkins for doing such a wonderful gift for us, we also have a little something for you that is very special for us. This is called a Smitty award and it’s a sculpture of the gentleman who was the founder of our school, W.O. Smith, who was a bass player. And [unintelligible] dedicated to the Smashing Pumpkins, we appreciate your humble contribution to the W.O. Smith Nashville Community Music School [unintelligible].
BC: Heh heh.
Iha: That was very nice.
BC: The Pumpkins are proud to present W.O. Smith of Nashville Community Music School with a check for $130,290.
