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!

Listener comments!

  3:03pm Pearly Sweets:

Hooray for Clay!
  3:04pm wait is over!:

been craving a more traditional Dusty show for some time...just tunes...thank u
  3:05pm still b/p:

From Bobby's album, "Cougar Huntin'!"
  3:06pm Steven S:

no question, that Bobby G. song is f*ckin' awesome.
  3:07pm Bad Ronald:

Howdy Clay, I am a huge fan, thank you!
  3:08pm Pearly Sweets:

Last week's dusty show was wonderful. This show will serve as the perfect palate cleanser for Thursday. I usually stick around work an extra thirty minutes just to make sure I catch the end of it.
  3:08pm Parq:

Hellos upon you, Clay. Mighty nice in the Madison Square nabe this afternoon, but thanks to you, it's also very nice on the radio.

B/p, 'taint a new theme. "Summer of '42" trod those paths decades ago. And let's not even get started on Oedipus.
  3:09pm GP:

Good afternoon Clay...got some technical questions for you for later, but I'll just listen now....nice start!
  3:10pm G.:

Your on-the-street segments were one of the first things that got me listening to the station when I came across them while scanning along the dial a couple of years back. (I also happened to know all of the 70s-era bed musics you used.) Hang in there, guy...
  3:13pm Nostradamus:

I just know we will be hearing Brewer and Shipley very soon in these parts.
  3:14pm Skeet Shooter:

Did someone say clay pigeon?
  3:16pm Nostrildumbass:

I have a feeling shit's 'bout to get mega stupid in here! Interior-Crocodile-Alligator. I Drive a Chevrolet Movie Theater.
  3:17pm annie:

got the computer hooked up to the stereo this weekend. man do the tunes sound great!
  3:17pm Uncanned Heat:

really kinda warm for this time of year... hey, i'm polar bear ebola!!!
  3:18pm Parq:

It's probably way too long for a show like this, but Canned Heat's Woodstock set-closer, captured on the "Woodstock II" release, always kills me. Not a lot of virtuoso musicianship going on, but man, what heart!
  3:20pm Merv Griffin:

He said polar bear ebola penny a pitch...
  3:20pm GP:

Clay, O.K. I'll just get it out of my system and ask now.
For your street shows are you using a Marantz recorder?
What kind of mike do you use?
Is all of your post processing on analog back to tape?
O.K. I'll shut up now.
  3:22pm Skeet Shooter:

Hey Clay, you want me to shoot that CAPS key for ya'?
  3:23pm Studio Keyboard:

  3:26pm Ale and Quail Club:

Throw up a cracker!

(The Palm Beach Story)
  3:28pm lovin' it:

seemless, smooth, satisfying
  3:32pm Pearly Sweets:

Talk as much as you want Clay! It is soothing, informative, and entertaining!
  3:32pm AnAnonymousParty:

How come I never heard this Jose treatment before? Oh yeah, that was when I used to listen to those other stations that only had "Light my Fire" as their token Jose.
  3:32pm Appreciative:

Nice set. Jose sounds like he hired Bobby Gentry's string section!
  3:32pm Roseanne Barr:

  3:32pm GP:

Dag...This Feliciano is FREAKIN awesome. Never heard it beofore.
  3:34pm markmaloof:

It was rolling along GREAT! And then the showtunes hit...
  3:35pm nasko:

hello my honey
hello my baby
hello my ragtime ga-aaal
  3:36pm markmaloof:

Just kiddin' (a bit) about the showtunes part. The Newman is a nice return, and tthat Jose Feliciano cover of "dreamin' was a super pleasant surprise for the day.
  3:36pm as Bob Marley said...:

...just can't live that negative way...gotta make way for the positive day....long live Show tunes
  3:37pm Pearly Sweets:

You might say showtunes, but this song is two steps away from METAL
  3:37pm Irving Berlin:

  3:37pm markmaloof:

Jesus Christ fucking Superstar! You do rule now!
  3:38pm Michigan J. Frog:

Watch it, Nakso, that's *my* tune.
  3:38pm annie:

man, is this gonna be a roller coaster... herod's song has been running through my mind for the last three nights!!
  3:38pm Pearly Sweets:

I swear this is a Mercyful Fate song.
  3:38pm Bad Ronald:

I can see Kenny G doing this!
  3:38pm King Diamond:

  3:38pm huge:

I LOVE The Dusty Show. Clay Pigeon's podcasts kept me sane as I drove across the country and back (6000 miles).
  3:40pm The Count:

I love this part!
  3:40pm nasko:

actually, the film version of "we're in the money" from goldiggers '33 where ginger rogers does an entire verse in pig latin would be rather topical right now. winesay lufay?
  3:40pm ?:

whew. Sometimes I think I am being prejudiced in dismissing the entire genre of showtunes out of hand. Thanks for reminding me that I just don't like them. Yuck.
  3:41pm markmaloof:

But I think that the film soundtrack of Jesus Christ Superstar had the cooler sounding Judas (yeah, I know it's not a Judas song we are listening to now, but I had a discussion once with one of my stoner friends in (getting) High School about which was the cooler sounding Judas, the show soundtrack or the film's. He dug the stage Judas, but I though the film soundtrack Judas was more hip and soulful.
  3:41pm dc pat:

I'm with ?...but I did listen to this a lot when I was a kid..
  3:41pm Pearly Sweets:

Irwin: "If it was in french, you'd love it."
  3:43pm esch oder anarchie!:

I share the general sentiment against showtunes but I gotta say, if I ever get whipped I hope that there's a cool guitar riff like that one playing as they're counting off the blows.
  3:43pm annie:

sorry, isn't it inesway uflay? all consonants moved? i learned back in the 50s... hhm, must be dialectical....
  3:44pm annie:

speaking of show tunes; you got any susan boyle..?? ok, ok...i LOVE show tunes, especially the old broadway stuff
  3:45pm esch oder anarchie!:

Madeline moment: as a kid, I tried to load my dad's JesusChristSuperstar soundtrack into his state-of-the-art reel-to-reel player, messed up and ended up with a pile of tangled tape on the floor. Took the pile and hid it in the garbage can outside. Forgive me Father!
  3:47pm Pearly Sweets:

  3:49pm Dad and pround owner of new reel-to reel:

Why I oughta!!!
  3:51pm G.:

Madeline moment Part Deux

Right after it first came out (1970?) the nuns loved playing JCSuperstar for us Beatles- and Guess-Who-listening middle schoolers, so they could "relate" to us. That tells you about how old *I* am...
  3:53pm still b/p:

Sister Rupert (7th grade) did not like the Lord being called "JC".
  3:55pm Amaranthus:

Clay Pigeon!! I love your show and have since the beginning. Glad to hear some of your music today. You have the nicest voice on the airwaves.
  3:55pm nasko:

  3:55pm Parq:

For reasons that I've discussed before (and will not bore you by repeating), "Jesus Christ Superstar", more than any other album, genuinely changed my life. Now, it happens that I love show tunes, but that aside, calling the original "JCS" album "show tunes" is like referring to "Tommy" as "opera music".
  3:57pm huge:

and as much as I adore your POTS shows, Clay Pigeon, it is nice to hear you program a bunch of music for a change
  3:59pm Aric in Austin:

Great set Dusty...could I request your favorite rainy day song? It's cats and dawgs here in the Lone Star capitol...all the best!
  4:00pm GP:

Did a van with a warlock painted on it just drive past?
  4:00pm Aric in Austin:

I meant Clay...sheesh.
  4:02pm Amaranthus:

  4:03pm rock blue:

time for some football!!!!!
  4:03pm high school football in Tenn.:

we use to take the field to this song...giddie-up!
  4:04pm GP:

I have this Hank on vinyl.
  4:05pm rock blue:

i used to shoot catfish with this song playin
  4:05pm Amaranthus:

Bocephus walks among us
  4:06pm rock blue:

i think these lyrics aply to city folk just as well
  4:07pm Parq:

Shoot catfish and fish for pool. Or maybe shoot catfish *in* the pool. Sorta like those lame "big game hunt" parks in Texas with the tranquilized rhinos.
  4:09pm still b/p:

Speaking of showtunes...Everything Ain't Up To Date in Playlist City for everybody...right?
  4:09pm postmanpaul:

hi clay, thanks for bringing some lazy hazy new jersey sunshine sounds into my living room tonight. brrrrr, nasty cold, wet and windy outside.
...enjoying very much, naturally.
  4:10pm annie:

PMP- any adder-strikes lately?
  4:15pm dc pat:

still: right.
  4:16pm postmanpaul:

hi annie, have i missed something about snakes and royal mail delivery officers? should i tuck my trousers into my paisley socks?
  4:17pm AnAnonymousParty:

Time is an illusion, lunch time doubly so.
  4:17pm time:

time is an invention...nothing more
  4:18pm rock blue:

"days of...." great movie - jack lemon right? who was the female lead?
  4:20pm annie:

PMP-keep your hands out of boxes set in brick.
  4:20pm still b/p:

Lee Remick.
  4:20pm Parq:

A fave album title from the 70s (apropos Clay's playlist): Martin Mull's "Days Of Wine And Neuroses".
  4:21pm rock blue:

yes, the beautiful lee remick...thanks
  4:23pm still b/p:

That version of Days of Wine and Roses was different from the one by Andy typically heard in "Music of Your Life" radio playlists. Now, who, I say who, woulda thunk such a note would be taken here?
  4:25pm annie:

i sooo love this music. and i loved that station BP-
  4:26pm postmanpaul:

wot? keep me 'ands out me boxers?!!! wot you saying annie?!!!
  4:28pm newberry:

Great music! Nice to hear a wide range of styles, and get a break from indie rock and the like...
  4:28pm annie:

you sayin you wear 'em, eh PMP?!
  4:29pm postmanpaul:

paisley, naturally.
  4:29pm rock blue:

man feel like im a kid again back on fire island during the summer with the grown-ups drinking scotch
  4:31pm Pearly Sweets:

70's Eloy breaks my mind with awesome.
  4:31pm annie:

takes me back to the days when we lived out in northport. drivin around in the car, radio ruled then.
  4:31pm Pearly Sweets:

Speaking of prog and all.
  4:32pm pfapfap:

Clay! I'm streaming from California and had no idea it was you in the studio. It was a pleasant surprise to hear your voice. Enjoying the show!
  4:32pm mike:

I cannot believe I am hearing one of my favorite Jack Jones songs on WFMU. You are doing an amzing show CP, and you should consider doing a music show and certainly more fill-ins. Quite refreshing.
  4:33pm still b/p:

Been waiting years for an opportunity to sing "Wiives and Lovers" in a Most Unlikely Campfire Song contest.

annie - just lost the last local programming with a similar format, albeit pretty fuzzed and bent version with Kenny Rogers and contemporary entries cluttering and dulling things. But for the first time in a couple of decades, no 40s - 60s singers/songbook available to me on local commercial radio any more. Shame.
  4:34pm postmanpaul:

...take too many short cuts over garden fences to risk wearing boxers, actually annie...i need to be more streamlined to to maintain 10mph!!!
this music takes me back to place i have never been to before, wait a minute...
  4:35pm Amaranthus:

Clay, you are making my day!!! Excellent show!
  4:36pm annie:

BP- i mourn your loss. there is nothing so sweet as great music trilling from speakers... PMP-they upped it to 10! wow.. you rock if you can keep that stride, 'lessun you got snakes chasin ya.
  4:36pm G.:

13 time. progerrific :-)
  4:37pm rock blue:

i heard a rush song the other day in a hipster coffee shop and thought it was some contemporary band during 70s radio prog rock and thought...hmm some band SHOULD be doing that
  4:37pm Pearly Sweets:

It is official. I am spinning at my desk.
  4:38pm Parq:

I need to go check something, but it's gotta wait. I just turned up Yes, and I just know ELP is coming up in the next ten minutes or so.
  4:38pm Kirsten:

Hello Clay - LOVING your show today. And YOU! Hee hee.
  4:38pm postmanpaul:

clay - we are not used to retarded acuplaylists, but that's ok.
  4:38pm markmaloof:

Man, you gotta play "Starship Trooper" by Yes, and I'll light up a joint in the living room. Seriously, what classic rock station is gonna play "Starship Trooper" these days, it's just gonna be "Roundabout", ya know (or, as I liked to call it, Roustabout, for proggy circus and carnival workers.)
  4:38pm Your adoptive father:

What the hell are you doing playing around on the radio when you should be studying? I'm gonna tan your hide when I get home.
  4:40pm rock blue:

the harpsichord is such an underused instrument in rock
  4:41pm Amaranthus:

Um, people...this is not Yes.
  4:42pm Pearly Sweets:

This song just jumps out of the bushes now and again and gets your whole body grooving. It demands it. That bass line.
  4:42pm rock blue:

"the whos on first the guess who on second and yes is playing third"
  4:42pm AnAnonymousParty:

Since when is Siberian Khatru not Yes?
  4:42pm postmanpaul:

yes, caught 'em at hyde park once upon a time, they did it for us. notwithstanding their libretto.
  4:43pm Robert1014:

I'm 53 and remember much of what you've been playing today. I hated the 70s as I lived them in northeast Florida. When I think back on that era the word that comes to mind is "torpid." Yet, it was the era of punk, the most exciting cultural development I ever lived through, and even much of the mainstream music that I hated then I can listen to with pleasure now. I even look back now at the cultural attitudes prevalent then and it was by far a looser, different time than our much more rigid authoritarian era today. As for "Siberian Khatru," YES were the first band I saw in concert, on their 1972 CLOSE TO THE EDGE tour, (with the Eagles as their opening act) and I've always favored this among their albums. (In fact, it was their last good one!)

I'm enjoying your show very much.
  4:44pm Amaranthus:

My bad ! Listening to 2 things at once. YES!! Forgive me Clay.
  4:44pm still b/p:

Taking the Fool Trophy: Saw Yes twice, back in the day, and at one of the shows risked expulsion or worse, and DID experience a fire extinguisher spritzing, when I ignited a road flare in the seats. Suuuuuper genius. Fellas without shirts in front of us didn't care much for the hot spatter factor. I need to be punished.
  4:44pm Dr. No:

Yes, we have no maƱanas
  4:45pm postmanpaul:

robert1014 - my sentiments too, nicely put.
  4:46pm Greg in DC:

Saw them at Asbury Park Convention Hall in 36 bc as the opener for Jethro Tull. They had sound problems, but were so amazing that they got a standing ovation.on.
  4:46pm rock blue:

got kicked out of an ac/dc concert for tossin fireworks...just before they came on...as the hells bells bell started ringing and the coppers nabed us
  4:46pm Trippy Dude who knows no music since punk started:

Play all four sides of Tales, man! {sucks on bong}
  4:47pm Fella without shirt at that Yes show:

still b/p: Why, I oughta....!
  4:47pm Parq:

With best wishes to rock blue:

let's introduce the band

Fine, tell me it's name.

The Band

The who?

No, that's next week.

So you want me to introduce the band?


I should introduce Yes?

No, they cancelled out. Introduce the Band.

Who's the band?

No, Who's next week. Do you understand that the Band is this week?


No, they cancelled!!

etc. etc. (not original to me, rememeber this from a Don Krishner show or something)
  4:47pm annie:

a hot cup of tea... hhmmmm
  4:47pm Bad Ronald:

  4:48pm Some stupid with a flare gun.:

I saw Deep Purple in Montreaux.
  4:48pm rock blue:

parq...you found a transciption!!?!!
  4:48pm hugh:

gawd, I love Missing Persons as much as I hated high school.
  4:49pm GP:

Whoah.....OK, Clay now you are playing the music of my youth. Missing Persons....used to be IN LOVE with the singer.
  4:49pm Parq:

Nah, that's from memory. Probably not close to accurate, but you get the idea.
  4:49pm Bad Ronald:

Dale had some wild outfits!
  4:50pm cod:

nice work, clay. you've hit your stride. is this Missing Persons a segue? (dale Bozzio and the band 'UK')?
  4:50pm G.:

If you get into collecting their live shows (Yes's), actually of all the several hundred I've got I'd say in some ways the best is the June 1976 Roosevelt Stadium **Jersey City** ROIO (Recording of Indeterminate Origin, a tongue in cheek terms we traders use). It's off the WNEW-FM/WYSP board; they did a simulacast. Yes opened with Siberian K for years, often still do...
  4:50pm markmaloof:

Still like Dale Bozzio best when she was doing dirty voices on Zappa's Joe's Garage. I worked on a shoot with child music prodigies in Austin, and one kid had Terry Bozzio as a drum teacher, not bad. Liked him better as a drummer with Zappa than Missing Peeholes, but sure the MP gig made him a bit a little more money than playing with the Z man, at least for the blink of an eye.
  4:51pm rock blue:

parq yeah, i remember that guy who played squiggi and some other guy did the bit
  4:52pm cod:

whoops, I meant terry bozzio and UK (prog rock connection)
  4:53pm Joel A:

OMG... Flock of Seaguls! Brings back memories of ex-wife
  4:53pm markmaloof:

Sad to say I saw Flock of Haircuts twice, both times as an opening act. The second time was an "ultimate" early 80s concert, Flock of Haircuts, The FIxx, and then the Police. Hmmm, while the 70s mainstream had some great rock music at times, the 80s mainstream had lots of sub-par going on (it was the underground of the 80s where IT all lived, always will cherish those shows, that radio, those records....)
  4:53pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

how is this playlist corresponding to what is being posted?...umm...it's NOT, that's how. i would welcome some Bare Trees over this 80s pap.
  4:53pm wendy del formaggio:

Hi Clay! The volunteers on the 4th floor are digging this New Wave/80s development. It's helping us stuff all those marathon prize packages. xoxo
  4:55pm bobby:

you are nuts!
  4:55pm Jim:

Given today's political situtation, maybe "I Ran" would've been a better choice.
  4:55pm NS Andy:

Hey G.: I was at that Roosevelt Stadium Yes Show. I was young- only 12- but I remember it well; I went with my older sister and her friends. First time I smoked pot. Great to remember that! Thanks Clay!
  4:55pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I bid you adieu, good sir.
  4:58pm rock blue:

why dont you pull one of those volunteers to help with the play list
  4:58pm cod:

sock of fleagulls , the police, chicago 1981. Soldier Field I believe
  5:00pm Amaranthus:

Clay, you deserve an assistant playlist maker/back rub giver
  5:00pm G.:

Glad to help, Andy. Yes, 1976 is roughly as far into nostalgia territory now as Bing Crosy was in 1976. -- Allison Steele (RIP 1995) was talking on the FM simulcast about "wow, the laser lights reflecting off the Manhattan skyscrapers and the oraring flames" back projection during the encore. Modern Times!!! June 10th 76, if memory serves...
  5:01pm Kagi:

Dude, don't harsh on the Flock. So maybe they didn't put out _many_ good tunes, but "Space Age Love Song" is one of my favorite pop gems ever.
  5:01pm Pearly Sweets:

Man so much talk about the playlist. He tells you during the mic breaks. Just pretend you're in the car or something.
  5:02pm Pearly Sweets:

I've always had a soft spot for the flock.
  5:02pm annie:

these were some of the best years of my life; the early 70s
  5:02pm rock blue:

wacky man...wacky
  5:03pm huge:

I was going to request S&C, as I was JUST watching Yacht Rock a few minutes ago. For reals.
  5:03pm wendy del formaggio:

Amen, Pearly Sweets! (on the "He tells you during the mic breaks" thing, and The Flock thing.)
Clay's mic breaks are half the fun of listening to his programs, anyway, so just wait for it and enjoy. Or change the station if you don't.
  5:04pm Bad Ronald:

Jeez, I was singing this earlier today and I thought "canyons" of my mind but I knew it should have been some sort of plant. Thanks!
  5:04pm rock blue:

  5:05pm Ike:

I'm just peeking in briefly -- hey, CP, you played Depeche Mode? So you're aware that music was still being made after 1979? Huh! Wonders never cease. ;) I kill me.
  5:05pm Amaranthus:

You are so right PS and WDF. Don't worry about the playlists Clay. You are wonderful no matter how you slice it.
  5:05pm Pearly Sweets:

Clay is one of the four heartbeats of FMU for me. I love everyone, but there are four I can't miss and will fight tooth and nail for from my couch fortress or cubicle outpost.
  5:07pm NS Andy:

Ah yes- Allison Steele, the Nightbird... she's was a bit much; but I listened to her in secret in bed ( I had a stupidly early bedtime...).

Not having a summer breeze here today in Nova Scotia- right here on the coast, the wind is blowing and it's about 7 degrees- that's 45 for yous all.
  5:07pm Bad Ronald:

  5:10pm Hugh:

Irene has Mondays sewn up, but man, you are a CLOSE second. I felt emotions, and memories that have been buried in the deep recesses of my youth. Brother, thank's for the memories!

In some ways they were, Sexy, till maybe about 1985!

Someone a good three hours ago asked how the street segments of Dusty's show are produced. I'm no expert, but I came across this mid-2008 blog entry with an interview where Dusty talks some about that very issue:

  5:41pm huge:

Play some Marshall Tucker Band next, and it'll start getting creepy. GET OUT OF MY CHILDHOOD!!!
  5:41pm Parq:

Grand Funk's "I'm Your Captain"? Oh man, Clay, you're just killing me here. Are we really the same person?

"Clay is one of the four heartbeats of FMU for me. I love everyone, but there are four I can't miss and will fight tooth and nail for from my couch fortress or cubicle outpost."
