Options March 31, 2011: Andy Warhol Statue Unveiling Show

Listen to this show: Pop-up listen Pop‑up player!

Artist Track Album Label Year Format Comments Approx. start time
Initial Panic
  Already sensing minor chipmunking.
Your spot.
An Interview with Rodney at 17th and Broadway, site of the Warhol Statue.
  Note: When I initially saw the statue, it was maybe 3pm-ish and it was uncovered. Tourists were gawking, technicians were primping it, glossing it's shoes. Then, after a time, it was covered with silver cloth and I was told there would be a later unveiling. I decided to stick around for the ceremony, thus necessitating a need to loiter and collect interview material. This wasn't a show I had planned on doing. I happened upon it, as so often ... happens. Anyway, this is why some of the early interview subjects allude to being able to see the statue, even though later in the episode, it is covered and people (who haven't seen it) were waiting for it to be uncovered.
Screwing with the battery.
Ka-Boom ... Big Boom!
Smashed Leg
A Short Interview with Jennifer
  Note to listeners: Many of these interviews were MUCH longer. I just did so many that I had to cut them way down. I apologize for that. Certainly didn't mean to waste anyone's time. Perhaps I'll use the extra footage in a future episode.
An interview with Phillip Bel Paso
Who was Andy?
  Noticing a disturbing lack of treble lately. Might need a new micro-cassette.
Crapping DNA
Flute Solo!
An interview with A.J. and Lorraine from Brooklyn
Thoughts on Warhol
Taxes :>(
We're All Won
An Interview with David Boatman - http://boatmanmedia.com/
A vote for permanent installation of the statue.
Shameless Materialism
  I struggle with whether or not to capitalize (in so many ways)
Becoming Andy's Lover
Scott Explains Andy Being Shot
Duckin' into Duncan
An interview with Abu, Dunkin' Donuts Manager
Clip from popular "Time to Make the Donuts" commercial featuring Michael Vale. 1983 - Dunkin' Donuts
Abu's Duncan Consumption Patterns
An interview with David the architect from Birmingham, Ala. - Union Square Park
  I feel particularly bad about shortening David's interview. We talked at length and then it was brutally shortened in editing, certainly not because David wasn't interesting. He was. Again ... additional footage may appear in a future Dusty. Sorry, David, and all the best.
Featured music behind David ... Alabama, There's A World, Heart of Gold, Old Man (Excerpts) ... all from the Neil Young "Harvest" LP ... but you knew this.
Leaving Alabama
Rediscovering Alabama
David's honest assessment of Warhol
Interview with unknown man, railing on a street corner near Union Square Park.
  I had some qualms about airing this. Was he sane? He was bellering all this out at full volume on a public sidewalk, in full earshot of passers-by. As some listeners have already mentioned, despite his inflammatory diatribe, he's kind of humorous in an obtuse way. You can even hear him laugh at himself a couple of times. He kind of sounds like Jerry Stiller to me. For the record, The Dusty Show loves womankind and promotes their equality, well-being and happiness. I also dig God and Jesus. Did I give in to sensationalism? Maybe.
An interview with Mark Birnbaum - http://www.ragtimemarkbirnbaum.com/
Mark on Warhol
  I did a long interview with Mark, too. Great guy.
  At this point, my editing job is getting rushed, as I was running out of time. I was letting edits pass that I wouldn't ordinarily.
  I'm not sure what "legends in their own right," means, but it didn't sound right somehow.

Ghost Appearance In Utah
David Bowie  Andy Warhol (excerpt)   Options Hunky Dory  RCA  1971  LP  I have developed a sudden affinity for this song, which I had never paid much mind previously.

An Interview with Peter Wise
Confession # 24,354
1995 Kentucky Derby broadcast - source unknown
An interview with Peter Brant - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_M._Brant
  Each person I encountered at this event was cordial and open to being interviewed, which is not always the case.
  I did experience some stammering and mental cloudiness in interviewing the 'celebrities.' Star-struck, I guess.
The Velvet Underground  Heroin (excerpt)   Options The Velvet Underground And Nico  Verve  1967    Includes interview clip with Andy Warhol recorded in 1964

  The interview with painter, Spencer Sweeney, was woefully edited. More to come. -- http://www.interviewmagazine.com/art/spencer-sweeney/
An interview with Warhol Statue sculptor, Rob Pruitt -- http://www.interviewmagazine.com/art/rob-pruitt/
  That's it for another episode of The Dusty Show. Enjoyed visiting with you on the Accuplaylist. Not sure if I'll continue doing it. Reveals to much of my pedestrian knowledge. No mystery. Too available. Ha!

As I said, I wish I had had the time to edit this more carefully. There were so many worthy interview subjects (everyone is, but you know what I mean) that deserved better representation. I did my best with the time constraints.

Thanks again for listening. Let me know what you think of the program. I'm always open to input and thoughts and I value your minds and insights. Cold here in Manhattan tonight. Snow possible, and it's April. I wish I could ski, but that head-banging I did in Switzerland precludes those notions and sidelines me, sadly. Maybe next year ... or not. Must protect noggin. Take care everyone and ... always remember.

  6:17pm MuttonChops:

  6:18pm clay:

Hello Mutton
  6:18pm Ike:

Peep! Hey there!

That mentally-ill guy rambling nonsensically about gravitrons was kind of depressing.
  6:19pm Ike:

I don't wanna put down my Hater-ade! I love it!
  6:19pm Vicki:

yes, that does tend to be depressing
  6:20pm Fredericks:

What's up Bhurd?
  6:21pm clay:

this whole show was rushed. wish i could have spent more time on it. hi fredericks!
  6:21pm coelacanth:

what a douche.
  6:22pm Vicki:

better to rush than not get there though :)
  6:22pm Anthony:

Clay, will you describe the statue for us out-of-staters? Is it a conventional, representational sort of statue?
  6:22pm Vicki:

this bloke's funny, the woman hater
  6:23pm Vicki:

HA HA!!!
  6:23pm clay:

It's 10' tall and chrome anthony. beautiful.
  6:23pm Adam in Lynnwood:

Was this fella in "Salesman" by the Maysles?
  6:23pm clay:

he is, vicki. absurd.
  6:23pm Anthony:

Also, a rough percentage of how many of your interviewees are bi-polar? There seems to be A LOT.
  6:24pm Vicki:

I'd not want to be a million miles from him but he's making me laugh

you're so patient, Clay
  6:24pm Pantagruel:


pic of statue
  6:24pm clay:

  6:25pm Anthony:

Oh, remembered I could google-image it. Yr right, it is beautiful.
  6:25pm Pantagruel:

Oops, I mean

  6:25pm coelacanth:

He IS hilarious! He's so far out there it's a comedy routine!
  6:25pm Ike:

@Pantagruel, I think you mean:
  6:26pm coelacanth:

Yes. Clay has "the patience of a saint".
  6:27pm Ike:

Oops, I wasn't fast enough.
  6:27pm clay:

Thanks seal.
  6:29pm Vicki:

oh I like the statue!
  6:30pm dale:

hello clay. i would think a chrome statue of ANYONE would be reserved for jeff koons, but what do i know. i'd be afraid to have your first interviewee work on my car. KERBLOOIE!
i saw andy only once, taking pics of club goers at a place on west side and jane street. kind of a non-event. i was andy at last halloween party i went to.
  6:31pm dale:

opening scene of dracula with udo kier putting on his makeup is STUNNING.
  6:31pm Anthony:

Chrome statue = referencing the foil-clad Factory, and the silver balloons. Bah to Koons!
  6:32pm coelacanth:

Wow that's intense. I want to see it right after a rain when the bright sun shines directly down on it.
  6:32pm Anthony:

Koons already has that statue of him in coitus with his ex-wife, somewhere.
  6:33pm clay:

i'd have loved to have seen andy warhol. i love that kind of pop celebrity artist thing. was koons the guy who did the chrome rabbit? I confuse him with Dean Koontz.
  6:34pm Vicki:

Kenny said he met Andy once and lurched forward with his hand and Andy cowered away
  6:35pm coelacanth:

ba ba booey
  6:35pm Not Damon or Helios:

I love Warhol's version of our "Half Machine, Lip Moves".
  6:36pm coelacanth:

(that's probably not how it's spelled)
  6:37pm Vicki:

Neil Diamond
  6:37pm clay:

I love Shiloh.
  6:38pm Anthony:

Oh its a Rob Pruitt! I saw him lecture once. Rad dude.
  6:38pm dale:

80s nyc was sooooooo much better. an original music scene, you didn't need to be rich to buy a beer, skinheads and punks and trannys and bridge and tunnel kids and kids from small rural towns all hanging out together...fun and gritty. find 'songs for drella' clay when you can. lou read and john cale - nice
  6:39pm clay:

dale from north dakota? hey my friend.
  6:40pm adamp:

great show, clay!
  6:40pm clay:

thanks, ad!
  6:41pm dale:

no, dale from upstate (from dale and kyle, who is my wife and i am her husband). haven't emailed in many a moon. i can pretend to be from north dakota, though
  6:41pm Ike:

80s NYC sounds so fascinating now, but maybe over-nostalgified. Actually going back there in a time machine might be scary -- lots of crime, robbery, drug addicts, heroin causing so many problems (as my aunt well knew when she lived in the Village back then)....
  6:42pm clay:

dale! hello.
  6:42pm Vicki:

I think the best statue of Andy would float above NYC like his silver balloons
  6:43pm clay:

Mylar forever!
  6:44pm dale:

perhaps a macy's parade balloon in silver mylar, vicki?
  6:44pm Anthony:

Good call! Pruitt should do Warhol float for the Macy's Thanksgiving parade.
  6:45pm Vicki:

I LOVE his interviews
he's beautiful
  6:45pm Anthony:

Oh, Dale beat me to it. Awesome show, Clay.
  6:46pm Vicki:

Agreed on the float!
  6:46pm clay:

thanks ant!
  6:46pm hamburger / london:

christ. you. cut off heroin...
  6:46pm Anthony:

  6:46pm clay:

Thanks Vicki.
  6:47pm clay:

sorry hamburger. felt bad about that.
  6:48pm dale:

what is he carrying - a macy's big brown bag? the statue kinda looks like mark twain.
  6:49pm Pantagruel:

"..in his right hand he holds a Bloomingdale’s shopping bag, in which he usually carried copies of Interview, the celebrity magazine he founded in 1969."
  6:49pm Vicki:

Andy's films were so ahead of their time - the way he showed that time doesn't have to be canned, edited and all full of action, that reality is great to watch on the screen too. And Empire/Sleep are really profound, the idea that you don't even have to watch the whole thing
  6:49pm Anthony:

big brown bag is bloomingdales!
  6:50pm dale:

d'oh, bloomies of course!
  6:50pm Vicki:

wow... great getting all these people on mic
  6:51pm clay:

i was intimidated a bit.
  6:52pm Vicki:

sometimes it's good not to know, eh
  6:55pm Anthony:

Clay, did you get a chance to interview the sculptor?
  6:56pm clay:

he's on now ant
  6:56pm Vicki:

hey - see you in a few weeks, Clay
  6:56pm Anthony:

Oh here it is!
  6:57pm clay:

k vick. hi to peter.
  6:57pm Vicki:

he says hi
  6:58pm Pantagruel:

Good job, Clay!
  6:58pm Vicki:

that was a great show, thanks
  6:58pm dale:

fun show
  6:58pm Vicki:

I <3 Andy
  6:59pm Anthony:

awesome show. work flew by.
  7:00pm coelacanth:

Thank you Clay
  8:02pm clay:
