indistinguishable. it is about style and swing.>> and you are fantastic on the piano. >> today we relate to each other differently, and all you have to do is keep punching a button for a friend and then eventually you will meet kevin bacon. it is a issue of manners, and that is what i'm trying to re- create on the show. >> what drives you about this?>> it is 90 minutes of a floating monologue of music. my crazy perceptions of when i grew up, putting this all together, and you realize when you get to a point in life you begin to understand why you began in the beginning. as elliott said, the end is my beginning, the beginning is my end.>> do you have a favorite
song?>> absolutely. moving river -- moon river. it doesn't really mean anything, it is a painting, and a great melody. it is in the show, and it was my mother's favorite song, and she would always hum it. later on they added lyrics. i remember sending -- singing it to her over an intercom and there was an intercom on the third floor, and i remember pressing the button when i was nine years old and singing that to her down in the kitchen.>> you enjoy your time coming out to the bay area? >> i love the bay area. i have been here so many times. i am happy to be premiering probably the show that means the most to me "the man with
standards". we were so affected by the fires, and so many friends of ours lived in the northern napa area, and they were affected by that fire. we decided with a group of friends, guy pierre he is going to be my -- guy fieri is my partner, and we will have a concert that you will not believe. it is going to be like woodstock, and every penny will go to the fund for them. it is called "things giving for middletown -- thanksgiving for middletown.>> if you want to go to the show, you can go to ktvu.com and find it. if you

>> we do, and we collect client choice. a lot of our clients don't have a home to go to to cook something on a stove. if i give them a bag of beans, there's no way they can go home and cooked that. it cuts down on waste. we like to give the clients something that they can use at the time.>> doing this fund raiser by making a 5k is unique. you think it will bring attention to the food pantry in a way to get people that may not ordinarily be involved in the effort?>> kenny repeat that. >> -- can you repeat that?>> this is a unique way to bring attention, and you anticipate this will get more people to participate?>> that is what we hope. we think that going on channel
