Artist Track Album Label Year Format Comments Approx. start time
  As the week began and I was preparing to start another Dusty Show, I became increasingly ill with some kind of flu or cold or something. In a last ditch attempt, I went out to do interviews on Wednesday, but I was immediately gripped with the chills and went back inside. Plan B ... A re-run. I had hoped to air a show from November of 2011 - the eviction of Occupy Wall Street from Zuccotti Park, but for one reason or another, it was not possible to bring up the file at the station to air it ... so ... Plan C ... an improv, (beings as I felt too badly to go live w/Fabio, and he was busy anyway ... ...... Sitting in a chair by my desk in the Pigeon Coop, slumped and ill, I began reciting some wild fever drea,, one line at a time until I had maybe 50-minutes of tape. Then I had to go in and try and edit out all the tape clicking of turning the micro-cassette on and off between every line. I ended up with, Nurse Hadley. It's admittedly creepy and questionable, but ... here it is. 59 comments! My lowest since last July 4th. Kind of proud in some weird way. OK ....... here we go.

@glenn, I don't think the transmitter could handle it

Clay's phoning it in.

Avatar Thu. 3/20/14 6:10pm david_:

Clay and Hearty would have to be dialed to opposing stereo channels... but I bet it would be good!

bringing in the sheaves, clay pigeon style.
Avatar Thu. 3/20/14 6:16pm mariano:

If I didn't know Clay for the mensch he is, listening to this I'd conclude he was among the scariest people alive.
  Thu. 3/20/14 6:16pm Clay Pigeon:

I am sick, so I recorded this last night, one line at a time, making it up as I went, and then went back and edited out the tape clicks. It's called "Nurse Hadley." Not the best thing ever, but nevertheless, here it is.
  Thu. 3/20/14 6:17pm Baumer:

This is amazing.
  Thu. 3/20/14 6:18pm Greg:

thoroughly enjoying this piece
Avatar    Thu. 3/20/14 6:18pm Mike East:

feel better, Clay. plenty of water and rest.
Avatar Thu. 3/20/14 6:19pm david_:

he needs to add some electrical tape to his sundries list.
Avatar Thu. 3/20/14 6:19pm mariano:

Oh, wow, Clay: tomorrow I'm taking my six-year-old niece, Hadley, out for a day in Manhattan. And yes, feel better Clay: we need you around to keep Fabio humble!
  Thu. 3/20/14 6:20pm julie:

I like it heaps, Dusty...
Avatar    Thu. 3/20/14 6:21pm V Priceless:

This is making me think of "The Musical Box" Clay! Neat! Get some chicken soup!
Avatar Thu. 3/20/14 6:24pm david_:

Only Clay could get away with using "fanny" twice in a story.
Avatar Thu. 3/20/14 6:25pm Whooda:

So very sorry to hear your're under the weather DJ Clay. Praying for you.
  Thu. 3/20/14 6:26pm tom:

"fanny" in a british accent means something else.
  Thu. 3/20/14 6:28pm rob in nc:

Clay, you've done it again! I'll be listening to this story at bedtime for a long time!
Avatar    Thu. 3/20/14 6:28pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

If it's any consolation, I seldom remember eating penguins.
Avatar    Thu. 3/20/14 6:29pm dale:

hot and sour soup kicks chicken soups butt for a cold.
Avatar Thu. 3/20/14 6:30pm mariano:

Avatar Thu. 3/20/14 6:32pm glenn:

i have a feeling that you would remember eating a penguin.
Avatar Thu. 3/20/14 6:32pm david_:

Man, I hope this is only a letter to Ms. Hadley that remains unsent!
Avatar Thu. 3/20/14 6:34pm glenn:

it's a verb that can also be used as a noun by adding ing, if memory serves.

I often crave finches skewered...I thought I was the only one :)

I usually wake up from a total blackout, adrift in a sea of penguin bones.

When visiting the coast of Maine, puffins get the same treatment. They've learned to fear and avoid me, the wee bastards.
