Clay Pigeon  Is There Anyone Home   Options Unreleased Demo  Nun  2010  MP3  A Gordon Lightfoot cover. I am actually not comfortable with playing my own tracks in a musical sense. So ... I will try not to continue down this path of vanity. At any rate, I do like Gordo. 
  Thanks for listening to this show everyone. Each week usually starts out the same for me, with regards to the program. I always intend for there to be an interview-based, street type show. But then, sometimes I get out there and it's cold or it's raining/snowing, I get shy, I wander around for a couple of hours and come home, unwilling to face the rejection I often get, or, I am unable to come up with anything to ask people besides, "What do you think about Obama"? or "Do you love America"?

I also wanted to create some type of entertaining digital construct in Garageband, like I have been tinkering with of late, but I couldn't get it together, save for the little Cowboy Kenny Carlisle thing I slipped in between the two stories.

As for the stories themselves, this time I literally "banged them out" rapidfire-style. I am not a huge fan of stream-of-consciousness stuff, though, Lord knows I have subjected you to a boatload of it over the years, and you have been patient to tolerate it, or, to mercifully switch it off without e-complaining. After rapid-fire writing these two tales, I just as quickly recorded them to micro-cassette and aired them. There are "spots" that I like, and then again there are real dullsville passages in dire need of being edited out. How anyone could wade through these and make it to the finish line is beyond me.

So ... next week is the beginning of marathon. I'm nervous about it. We'll need to raise some $$$ for the station and, of course, I will hope that The Dusty Show does OK. I do feel as if I am limping to the finish line this time a little bit. I haven't actually foisted up my best stuff of late. A lame (sans Fabio) live show, a lacklustre "smoking show" and these morbid stories ... I can only hope that I've earned your listenership over time through my weekly efforts to get something together for you, and I won't lie, it's hard sometimes. It really is. Not in a back breaking hard work sense, but in the relentless way the weeks pass so quickly, and in the chronic challenge to develop content for that sixty minutes each week. I hope I have given you some things worth listening to, and that, despite the shite economy, you might spare a nickel or two for the old (now arthritic - for real!) Pigeon. I could use your help. More importantly, WFMU could use your help.

So, until next time, I hope you have a good week and that something great happens for you in your life. Maybe you'll find a fiver on the ground. Please e-mail if/when you get the chance. It's been quite deadsville in that regard lately and I do so enjoy hearing from you.


I appreciate your continued support and hope that you'll remain an ongoing member of the Dusty Family. You're always welcome here. Take care my friend ... always remember.

C.P. 2/26/10
