Clay Pigeon's avatar View Clay Pigeon's profile Options

Street interviews, listener call-ins, vinyl gluttery, sporadic normalcy, original floperas and fiktion, blatant talking over songs, politix, tenderness, and a vague undercurrent of angst. Right up your alley!

Always remember ...  0:54:23 ()
            thanks for being here. hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend. always remember ...  0:57:02 ()
  Thanks for checking out this episode of The Dusty Show. It probably contained a little more "hockey talk" than many of you might have wanted. I didn't intend to do a hockey show. I just walked down to Madison Square Gardemn and it was happening, so I tried to tap into it. I've done it b4 and not that long ago, so the results were less than stellar in many of your eyes, I'm sure.

I've said this before, but, because I am working a day job, it's difficult to make the time for Dusty that I used to when I was unemployed. I used to spend all week on shows, painstakingly editing down 3-hours of interviews. I do miss that, actually, Now, my process is usually recording interviews on Monday night, editing on Tuesday night, throwing it together on Weds night, and playing it Thursday night, while trying to have a life. I'm not complaining, but I do miss the hyper-edited shows of the past.

I've also been downloading music for the show quite often, and usually the night before broadcast. This allows me to select almost any song I want and not have to dog through all my old records. Still, I notice I've been re-living my 90's rocker days a bit in my choices. I like them, but they may be too pedestrian for FMU, then again, it is free-form, so it should be OK.

Diminishing returns. Yes. They tell us not to pay too much attention to the AccuPlaylist. Still, I do sometimes check the comment count. It is almost always higher if I go "live." The pre-recorded shows attract less response and, I get it. I do. Politics and protests also tend to diminish audiences, and sports is pretty much an audience destroyer. So ... this weeks show had a pretty weak response.

I hope I am not too boring with my questions. They do get redundant, but they feel natural when I ask them. Perhaps I am getting old, as well, and lack a bit of vibrance. I need to do more interviews and filter them out, for only the best responses, but then again, time is ALWAYS an issue. SO, I must say THANK YOU for hanging in there and listening. I bore myslef sometimes. Maybe I phone it in to a degree, though it is ALWAYS important to me, and I suffer the shows which fall short of the mark. The good news is ... next week ... another chance to do something good. I hope you will keep tuning in. Write and give me your thoughts whenever you feel inclined. I can use the listener feedback, although, invariably you always tell me different things.


Until next time, take care everyone. Much love to you. Always remember Jeff Buckley and BB King.

Avatar Thu. 5/21/15 6:26pm Danne D:

Oh, Clay - most of the people there for the Rangers fans are in suits.
Avatar Thu. 5/21/15 6:26pm Danne D:

No worries Clay :) Great show - even with all the Rangers content ;)
Avatar Thu. 5/21/15 6:28pm Danne D:

Rangers forced the original New York NHL team out of the business (The Americans).
Avatar Thu. 5/21/15 6:29pm Danne D:

Btw @Clay part of the function of the Rangers fan base having a lot of suits is that the tickets are expensive. And many work on Wall Street.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/21/15 6:30pm SeanG:

i remember these dudes from Florida
Avatar Thu. 5/21/15 6:30pm Clay Pigeon:

good point, danne. i find myself wishing i had a jersey and a ticket. energy! sean ... they were from miami, i think
Avatar Thu. 5/21/15 6:31pm northguineahills:

My brothers don't listen to music, only sports radio. Their wives listen to crappy pop-country or pop-pop. I did get them on the last one's wedding w/ cumbia-bass, no complaints.....

Deflategate is a great distraction for America, but on the other hand my Colts lost to the Patriots that game so bleh! >:(
Avatar Thu. 5/21/15 6:33pm Danne D:

My Devils season tickets cost me about $30/game. A not inconsiderate some but manageable. And they threw in a season-ticket tenure jersey last year :)
Avatar Thu. 5/21/15 6:34pm Danne D:

Cheapest Game 5 Seat on SeatGeek for the Rangers is $254/each.
Avatar Thu. 5/21/15 6:35pm Danne D:

(I recall the tix I got for Devils in conference finals three years ago were about $100)

I'm not too keen on football played with hands, but hot damn I had no idea how expensive NFL tickets are, practically gotta take out a mortgage for nosebleeds

If anyone is going to rep for this particular Crue record, it's Clay.
Avatar Thu. 5/21/15 6:36pm Danne D:

The thing that gets me is these places that sell seat licenses to their season ticketholders. I mean that's some balls doing that. Pay us for the right to buy a ticket. SMH

exactly, polyus.

Cool, on getting the tenure jersey, Danne D. (I'm one of those guys who's wife and friends can't believe is a sports nut).
  Thu. 5/21/15 6:38pm BriJet:

@Danne D: Sir, pipe down! That's an expensive habit you have. ;)
Avatar Thu. 5/21/15 6:39pm northguineahills:

My bros got Lightning-Rangers tix at Tampa for $85, now they're going more then 6x that.
Avatar Thu. 5/21/15 6:41pm Slick Goldtooth:

Clay are you a Mad Men fan? I feel like if you dig a period drama like Downton you could get into it, if you aren't already.
Avatar Thu. 5/21/15 6:42pm Clay Pigeon:

Slick, I probably could. I pick a couple to watch and ignore the rest because of the time they take to watch. Downton, GoT ... a little Turn lately. We saw Cinderella at the theatre. It was good.

Hi BriJet!
Avatar Thu. 5/21/15 6:43pm Danne D:

It's around playoff time that getting season tickets pays off. Usually tickets for a Stanley Cup Finals game will scalp for like 4 times the face amount.

I remember when the Devils clinched their first Cup in '95 - people were paying the same amount that all of my playoff tickets costs just get into that one game.
Avatar Thu. 5/21/15 6:43pm Clay Pigeon:

glenn, man. nice surprise.

I never got into Mad Men or any other long-form dramas after the Sopranos since I felt I wasted too much time caring about something like that. Give me 2 hours and a Scorsese film and I get the same feeling in less time with more art. Yeah, I am a snoot that way.
