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!

  12:05pm aaron in chicago:

I found the hidden accuplaylist!
  12:08pm Irene:

Oh Man! I've never heard this version before! Thanks for filling in, Clay.
  12:13pm seang:

yeah, there is no link to the playlist/comments on the homepage
  12:17pm Irene:

I sent a note to the powers that be. Hopefully they'll fix it soon.
  12:20pm fishmonkeystew:

Ta da!
  12:20pm northguineahills:

Thanks for live/evil Clay!!!
  12:20pm zoot:

Found you just fine, Clay. Quite the brassy opening.
  12:20pm BSI:

hacker! hack-hack!
  12:20pm Irene:

That's really sad about Chase. I'd never heard that story before. I remember them as one of the slew of "Big Band Rockers" from that early 70's era of rock, like Chicago or Tower of Power.
  12:21pm Listener Bill:

Aha! Found Clay's hidden playlist
  12:21pm Mary Wing:

"Iowa sucks 'em down" will be my new catchphrase, I think.
  12:22pm Handsome Harry:

I'm in. Huzzah. Great opening set there, Clay.
  12:22pm listener mark:

So, Irene didn't leave her password . Smart !!
  12:22pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Yaay!!! This here luddite found the playlist.
  12:22pm Emile:

Thank you.
  12:23pm minnesota jeff:

Yes! A Clay Pigeon music fill-in! If Irene can't host her show, I always hope Clay can take the reigns. So great. Also, Clay I am getting your "Clay Classics 3" as well as some old Dusty Show premium for the Prize Warehouse.
  12:23pm minnesota jeff:

  12:23pm listener mark:

Why is it warm outside? Did you do this Mr. Pigeon?
  12:28pm Hugh:

It's warm inside as well! Too warm, it ain't natural, as per Mary Wing's comment,"time to suck down a couple cold ones!
  12:29pm Emile:

  12:31pm TJ:

Hey, nice. A clay pigeon show is a pleasant surprise on an otherwise average day.
  12:33pm Mary Wing:

The human drama of athletic competition...
  12:34pm 'Trouserpress' Brian in UK:

Hello Dusty
  12:35pm Emile:

Wish i could call .... Im in holland!!
  12:37pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Gremlin w/Levi interior... Wow Clay just flaunt it like that to folks who cut their vehicular teeth with lowly '66 Chevy Biscaynes!
  12:38pm TJ:

The mystic types make a lot of the 23 skidoo thing, as in the illuminatus books, etc. I guess the number 23 is magic.
  12:38pm Handsome Harry:

Clay really knows how to take a random listener's call. I hope there's more in this vein, tell you what.
  12:41pm J J:

Don't let him hang up.
  12:41pm Tom:

there's a wind tunnel at 23rd and Broadway and women's skirts would fly up and the men would stand around and watch them walk by hoping for a glimpse!
  12:43pm northguineahills:

@Tom: from the subway
  12:44pm aaron in chicago:

speaking of 23 skidoo, i loved this flapper dictionary:

it's the goat's whiskers!
  12:45pm Tiffany Lamp:

Lighten up guys.
  12:45pm northguineahills:

I'm on whiskey right now (at work)
  12:46pm PMD:

That's funny. If only FMU had ads - they could all be for psychotic drugs.
  12:47pm Richard from Venezuela:

Britny fox, please.
  12:47pm Robert:

Interesting IF IT'S TRUE (which I have doubts about) that Ken takes a SSRI OCCASIONALLY. The party line is that those are supposed to be effective only over the long run, but there are some people who report acute effects and will "chip" SSRIs.
  12:47pm Ike:

Ha ha ha! Clay thinks Ken is being especially forthcoming, but Ken talks about meds all the time.
  12:48pm Robert:

What I mean I doubt is that Ken currently takes any SSRI at all.
  12:48pm marq:

I miss this kind of on air banter. almost like when Kenny G, Irwin and Ken transitioned to each show.
  12:49pm Chippy:

This is my first time tuning in....this is awesome!
  12:49pm david from ks:

ooooohhhhh,,,,,oxyconandxanax,,,,there,,,now i feel better,,,
  12:50pm Robert:

I also doubt they're going to do the pot brownie thing for real. However, Andy won't be TOLD that both brownies are plain, and Ken will try to make him think he got the pot one. And Andy will play dumb and pretend he was fooled. It'll be fun.
  12:50pm seang:

thank you Ken for keeping FMU going
  12:51pm Ike:

Ken is always entertaining. What a personality!
  12:51pm Robert:

Second on the keeping of it going.
  12:51pm Hugh:

Clay & Fabio are the new banter kings now!
  12:53pm dc pat fc:

I do NOT want the tickets
  12:53pm listener mark:

Any tax specialists out there? Can I claim you as a deduction?
  12:53pm Paul:

Me neither
  12:54pm dc pat fc:

..and my head still hurts...
  12:54pm Peter K.:

That's two Mahavishnu tracks played on FMU in less than 24 hours (Dave Mandl, filling in for Gaylord, played one last night). I wonder when was the last time THAT happened?
  12:54pm dc pat fc:

Charlie Christian and Django
  12:54pm Brian in UK:

Ken, with you on the jazz guitars.
  12:55pm (mta) Tony:

Hi Clay; another great show. Hi Mary, hoped you enjoyed Liquid Sky.
  12:56pm Parq:

I lived and died for prog guitar in general and John McLauighlin in particular when I was a kid. It took until I got older to appreaciate crunching R&R and R&B guitar.
  12:57pm bk:

i would love the baseball project tix.great show.
  12:57pm fred:

@Hugh: Since that fateful show, whenever someone talks about Berlin or Germany, words like "perpendicular" pop into my mind. And one of my bosses is German, as are a few graduate students.
  12:58pm wmc:

Clay, bring up the echo and get Ken to do a patented Freedman Wheeze.
  12:58pm Brian in UK:

I've asked before but why is there no more Listener Hour?
  12:59pm Emile:

This is the greatest show ever!!!!
  12:59pm wmc:

Ken, when is the next State of the Station address?
  12:59pm Jack:

Hey! Got my T-shirt just now! Give props to Joe McGasko.
  12:59pm fred:

It was so potent I get Claycid flashbacks.
  1:00pm Parq:

I've had the privilege of meeting both Ken and Clay, and they are both very praise-worthy -- smart, goodhearted, stand-up guys. They are two of many reasons why FMU has such a following.
  1:00pm listener mark:

There isn't a listener hour because there are a million volunteer DJ's constantly jockeying for a spot.
  1:01pm hamburger / london:

well I was just about to shoot off back home from work but just might stick around a little :)
  1:01pm Robert:

And that's an indication of what a great thing they have going there.
  1:02pm listener mark:

I like Terry Gross.and "Fresh Air."
  1:02pm BSI:

SOLIDARITY, BROTHER! ... re; the prairie home companion critique, Ken...
  1:02pm Handsome Harry:

YES! I hate that damn show. Prairie Home Companion is so incredibly crappy.
  1:03pm Robert:

I don't like "Prairie Home Companion" for all those reasons PLUS the fact that Keillor has always made me think he's an inferior substitute for Jean Shepherd.
  1:03pm Paul:

  1:03pm Ike:

YES. Prairie Home Companion *IS* really fake and stomach-turning, and I LOVE Scharpling's impressions of him. Some of Keillor's writing isn't bad though.
  1:03pm listener mark:

Harry and Robert, you need more ketchup.
  1:03pm Hugh:

Aaarrghh! watched the new "Upstairs, Downstairs" last nite 165 Eaton Pl. Thought that I should play that number today. forgot to remember it. IT CAME UP just a minute ago!! AAarrghhh!!
  1:04pm Robert:

What I really need is to pay more att'n to the business e-mail I'm interrupting writing to comment here.
  1:06pm Brian in UK:

They'll be on to food soon.
  1:07pm ben drinken:

guess i will have a beer now
  1:08pm ben drinken:

one of the funniest drug stories from Ken I think was him and Kenny G talking about the acid rangers
  1:08pm BSI:

set and setting, people.......
  1:12pm wmc:

Clay Pigeon + too much caffeine is some dangerous shit! It's like licking a toad that makes the trip go away instead of kickstarting it.
  1:13pm listener mark:

The brain has electrical impulses. The law conservation of energy says energy can't be destroyed, so they go somewhere.
  1:13pm aaron in chicago:

by my count they still need to cover sex and abortion
  1:14pm doug:

should call this program "shit gets real with clay pigeon"
  1:14pm david from ks:

,,,,,,,,,,,still much better and more interesting than npr ,,,,especially car talk or wait wait wait tell somebody
  1:15pm Carmichael:

Just got here. Provacative interview, Dusty!
  1:15pm Handsome Harry:

Right on, Doug. Shit is getting real.
  1:16pm BSI:

  1:17pm aaron in chicago:

@BSI: one garrison keillor is enough
  1:18pm Carmichael:

This playlist is NOT linked to FMU's homepage. I had to backdoor my way to it. Like Niederneyer, I'm a sneaky little shit.
  1:18pm BSI:

ewww...... i stand corrected. Thanks Aaron.
  1:21pm Carmichael:

Sounds like Andy.
  1:22pm fred:

I really should be writing stuff right now, but I can't focus on anything but listening.
  1:24pm Ike:

That's odd; the link was on the front page before and now it's gone.
  1:24pm Bas, NL:

Listening from work.. should have left half an hour ago ;)
  1:24pm BSI:

  1:24pm Robert:

I too love Clay's taped shows, and especially appreciate all the editing work that goes into them.
  1:24pm john:

it has to be all 3 of you guys... Julie is the good mediator
  1:25pm listener mark:

Mr. Pigeon did an excellent show on the Andy Warhol statue..
  1:26pm listener mark:

Are Liz and Trouble still there?
  1:26pm BSI:

I dig the cassette Dusty Shows... the segue/edits always dig up music I haven't heard since high school (synergy, etc)...
  1:30pm Robert:

Next year when I'm rich I'd like to adopt a bathroom sink. Gotta find someplace to use up my formula bubble bath sitting in the warehouse, as liquid soap.
  1:32pm Ike:

I would really miss Fabio's music if he gave up Strength Through Failure, although Clay + Fabio + Julie would be a great show.
  1:35pm BSI:

Strength Through Julie Pigeons.
  1:36pm ben drinken:

we know who he is. he is addicted to Frangry.
  1:40pm Garry Keilor:

I don't like you weirdos either.
  1:41pm Maria D:

Yes to Alice Cooper!
  1:42pm ben drinken:

is Scott W in the house yet? would be great to continue the banter with him.
  1:45pm Pat in Philadelphia:

Harvest is nice but Time Fades Away is where it's at! Time Fades Away, On the Beach, Tonight's the Night! What more do you need?
  1:47pm Tom:

hawks and doves, reactor
  1:49pm Pat in Philadelphia:

Actually, I'd add Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere and Zuma.
  1:53pm Carmichael:

I'm also addicted to Frangry. I also hate LA. I also like Neil Young.
  1:57pm Tom:

I like Comes a Time ... and even Long May You Run (well, some of it)! And American Stars n Bars ...
  1:58pm fred:

I've said it before and I'll say it again: please pair Clay Pigeon with Dave Emory
  1:58pm dc pat fc:

my head doesn't hurt anymore.

Ken: yer right on, Civil War never ended.
  2:01pm dc pat fc:

yeah but there was respect back then between Repubs and Dems. Now there's nothing, just spite. And I'm the worst--I LOATH Republicans. Not conservatives, but hypocritical Republicans that just toe the line at all costs.... AAAH!
  2:02pm ben drinken:

Clay, you have us the listeners.
  2:03pm Carmichael:

And you have gigantic friggin' RECORD ROOM, GOD DAMMIT!!
  2:04pm Robert:

Lehrer I appreciate and respect very much. Lopate is a snake.
  2:04pm βrian:

Ugh. Radio Lab gives me the pip.
  2:04pm Mike East:

The Takeaway is awful! I tried...I really wanted it to be good. Blech!
  2:06pm βrian:

Heck, I've have 80 pounds of mp3s!
  2:06pm Handsome Harry:

  2:06pm dc pat fc:

I also hate Styx.
  2:06pm Ike:

I've never heard the Takeaway. I always mean to check it out out of morbid curiosity, but I always forget. What's esp. bad about it?
  2:07pm david from ks:

,,,,this i like,,
  2:07pm Gah:

  2:07pm dc pat fc:

Oh irony isn't that bad...are tattoos ironic?
  2:07pm slugluv1313:

aww, c'mon Ken, we ALL know you have THEE biggest STYX collection in the entire UNIVERSE!!!!! AND that your FAVORITE SONG OF ALL TIME is . . . "MISTER ROBOTO"!!!!!!!
  2:08pm Robert:

I used to listen to The Takeaway, actually found it more listenable than NPR's other stuff at the time.
  2:08pm Passerby:

"Say, is that real, or is it a tatoo?"
  2:09pm dc pat fc:

I also hate Irwin.
  2:09pm slugluv1313:

@ Ike, i too have never heard "The Takeaway" but NOW i am totally wanting to see how BAD it is!!!!!!!!!
  2:10pm slugluv1313:

YES!!!!!! "SPACE AGE BACHELOR PAD" rules!!!!! Irwin also started that whole "Golden Throats" craze too . . .
  2:11pm Mike East:

I can't speak for anyone else, but, 1. I didn't like the hosts, 2. the segments were too short to go in depth on anything they were discussing 3. I didn't like the sound fx the filled the space between bits, 4. They are just 'not cool' in general...when they try to make jokes, it turns out being embarrassing for me to listen to.
  2:13pm dc pat fc:

Cream ruled. and then Trouser Press, but not as funny as Cream
  2:13pm aaron in chicago:

it freaks me out a little when clay does that voice
  2:13pm seang:

any Van Halen?
  2:13pm Parq:

Clay, I didn't know you did voices too. Pretty cool.
  2:14pm dc pat fc:

clay is a walking piece of art
  2:14pm Ike:

Wow, Clay hitting the post right there.

"Walking in L.A." is a great song.
  2:15pm chris :: toronto:

Clay, that lead-in station ID was great! revealing chat w Ken as well. Cheers
  2:15pm dc pat fc:

..actually maybe he's not, I've never observed him walking...
  2:15pm slugluv1313:

"Rock Scene" magazine was awesome too -- remember "Doc Rock (a/k/a Lenny Kaye)'s Correspondence Corner"??? i think Lance Loud and Wayne County had columns too . . .
  2:16pm dc pat fc:

AAAAAAAHHH!!! must...turn...radio...offf.......
  2:16pm minnesota jeff:

Grand Illusion, niiiiiiiiiiice!
  2:17pm Carmichael:

This quite possibly the worst song ever. By the worst band ever.
  2:18pm Ike:

I almost feel more justified in going back to being a total classic-Ike crank and criticizing Clay's music when Clay intimates negative attitudes towards "obscure" music as he does with Fabio. And just now w/Ken he couldn't accept that Ken would hate Styx. Clay's relentless pro-pop stance seems just as stubborn as I ever was in hating classic rock back when I was a jackass music snob. :)
  2:19pm Carmichael:

I'm still that way now, Ike. I revel in it. This music is for housewives and homos.
  2:22pm ben drinken:

which shakes your head worse, that Clay can be such a fun guy and play this crap, or that Irwin plays good music and is a republican.
  2:22pm Ike:

I may not like much of Clay's music, but I love his interview segments and chats with other DJs. That whole thing w/Ken was total gold.

Wait... "housewives and homos"? That's not very creative. Surely you can do better.
  2:23pm dc pat fc:

whoa, easy there Carm.
  2:23pm Ken:

Hey BK! You get the Baseball Project tickets - emaiil me at ken <at> wfmu dot org
  2:23pm βrian:

GFR: That Flint, Michigan sound!
  2:23pm J J:

Oh man, these comments. I can see pitchforks and torches on the horizon.
  2:25pm Handsome Harry:

  2:25pm βrian:

I assumed he was referring to homogenized milk.
  2:26pm Ike:

Oh gosh Clay, I hope reading my comment didn't bring you down. Your energy is so good.
  2:26pm Matt:

Really? This is one of my favorite shows. Right up there with Bob Brainerd's & Gaylord Fields. And always missing Tony Coulter, too. Y'all are crazy.
  2:27pm MD:

  2:28pm Ike:

@Matt, did you know Tony C. is back doing a web-only show every 2 weeks?
  2:28pm fred:

@ben: If only Irwin was your run-of-the-mill republican. Or democrat for that matter. How can anyone not respect Irwin despite his politics? From then it's not such a huge step to looking beyond those labels.
  2:29pm Board Reader:

Ike is always being negative on the board, Clay. It's totally not about *you*, it's about **him**!!! :-)
  2:29pm ?:

on the beach, zuma, and rust never sleeps. also american stars and bars.
  2:30pm Board Reader:

Only shallow people think Dem and Rep are all there is. Irwin's very obviously a libertarian.
  2:30pm the mysterians:

come back here, you wandering little asshole.
  2:30pm Matt:

I did not, Ike. Thank you.
  2:33pm glenn:

wow. shawn phillips is worse than i remember him being.
  2:33pm ben drinken:

yes I agree, fred. I know a few really cool republicans, X-Ray Burns is, too. But it always has me scratching my head for whatever reason.
  2:33pm mark kingsley:

Lost Horizon: a crappy film, but still one that I love still. Without irony.
  2:34pm Mike East:

ben - I think its his love of guns.
  2:34pm ben drinken:

libertarian is different than republican
  2:34pm Us:

We hate Them!
  2:35pm Them:

We hate Us!
  2:35pm glenn:

studies are showing that inclinations towards right and left wing are related to peoples brain structure. ya can't fight dna.
  2:36pm Bas, NL:

Sing along Clay!
  2:36pm Board Reader:

People who listen to FMU are very broadminded and widely knowledgeable about music. They may or may not have spent the time required to move beyond mass-culture cliches as far as the political/public-policy world goes.
  2:37pm JS:

Play some Missing Persons, Clay Pigeon! Pretty please. Just do it . . . I love that you were singing "Walking in LA." The magnetic particles have all fallen off my magnetic tape, so Side B sounds through Side A. But I really do want to hear Missing Persons, now that you put that song into my head. Oh please, do play MISSING PERSONS!
  2:38pm Cecile:

hola, Clay.
Damn, I missed some chestnuts there.
  2:38pm fred:

I was diagnosed as a Jeffersonian by an American girlfriend years ago. I still haven't checked out what that means, I lose interest in factions too easily.
  2:38pm BSI:

had to step away & do that work thing.....What did I miss?
.....oh, erm... this would be that "springsteen" fellow.
  2:39pm BSI:

That's okay man, I still love me some clay pigeon...
  2:39pm graygreygree:

'ya can't fight dna' ?

you could become educated about genetics and not continue to spread ignorance about nurture/nature with glib remarks.
  2:39pm noah:

What's next? REO Speedwagon?
  2:40pm jojo:

more cowbell, we need more cowbell! can we get some more cowbell?
  2:41pm Parking Lot of Stynx:

REO followed by Loverboy? (I kinda hope not but on 45 maybe). Fred do you think your gf thought you were a George Jeffersonian?
  2:41pm drewo:

Loving the show Clay Pigeon. Thanks for the great radio.
  2:41pm graygreygree:

know anything about epigenetics, glenn?
know anything remotely scientific to speak intelligently about your cheapshot claim?
Let's talk genetic frequencies and alleles!
  2:41pm ben drinken:

Van Halen (David Lee Roth) any song, makes a great drinking game. evertime Roth does one of his WAOOOW!!! you take a drink. drunk by the end of half a song

Tell me how it works, glenn. What's the mechanism? How do the stats account for changes from left to right from one election to the next. What about non-two party systems.

You're a parrot, glenn.

Political leanings are hardwired in our brains
Published: Friday, Apr 8, 2011, 16:20 IST
Place: Washington, DC | Agency: ANI

Wondering why people at opposite ends of the political spectrum often really can't see eye to eye? Here is the answer.

A new study has revealed that those differences in political orientation are tied to differences in the very structures of our brains.

Individuals who call themselves liberal tend to have larger anterior cingulate cortexes, while those who call themselves conservative have larger amygdalas.

Based on what is known about the functions of those two brain regions, the structural differences are consistent with reports showing a greater ability of liberals to cope with conflicting information and a greater ability of conservatives to recognize a threat, the researchers said.

"Previously, some psychological traits were known to be predictive of an individual's political orientation," said Ryota Kanai of the University College London.

"Our study now links such personality traits with specific brain structure."

Kanai said his study was prompted by reports from others showing greater anterior cingulate cortex response to conflicting information among liberals.

"That was the first neuroscientific evidence for biological differences between liberals and conservatives," he explained.

The study has been published online in Current Biology

  2:52pm mark:

Clay may play some duds, but he makes up for it with his effortless and addictive verbal banter. Props for playing Miles 'Live Evil'.
  2:52pm 12539:

Thanks for being on the radio, Clay.
  2:52pm Board Reader:

You think a middlebrow news article about one of those cheesy "X may or may not correlate statistically with Y, and we don't know why or how" studies is really something you can build a worldview on??
  2:52pm fred:

@cecile: Wow, I'm amazed at my remembering this right, I(m so cut off I don't know as much about french politics.
  2:53pm BSI:

Clay Pigeon, why you not hate salamanders?
  2:53pm Matt from Springfield:

@Clay: Excellent show, esp. with John McCabe! It proves you have that "healing" voice and presence. And the continuous drugs/religion/politics chat with Ken!
  2:53pm Cecile:

Yeah, well, I know Parking Lot.

Fred, it was a highly unique situation. I can see it sticking in your head.
  2:54pm Board Reader:

FMU plays tracks never heard on any other station.

Clay plays tracks almost never heard elsewhre on FMU.

He's FMU's FMU.
  2:54pm Julie:

@Matt thank you! I'm going to have Clay on with me one of these nights. I can play Styx without getting attacked!
  2:54pm Parking Lot of Stynx:

Wondering if someone will ever do a mush-up of Sabbath's "Live Evil" and Miles' "Live Evil". Dunno what they'd called it tho'.
  2:55pm BSI:

Bees are the salamander's knees!
  2:55pm Board Reader:

Locked groovy!
  2:55pm Cecile:

nice, Board Reader. I like that.
  2:55pm graygreygree:

Go ahead and blindly accept the study without asking any further questions, Glenn. Leave it to the scientists in subsequent studies -- it's the process of science afterall.

Accepting the first study as fact without calling to question anything more says a lot.

How about that flu epidemic, eh?
  2:55pm dc pat fc:

this skip is surely the best thing I've heard all day
  2:55pm Mike East:

Holy cow - I swear I had this Kids! song in my head last week!

  2:56pm Mike East:

I was remembering when Scharpling played it like 10 times in a row a few years ago and was thinking I'd never hear it again cuz I couldn't remember who did it.
  2:56pm Parking Lot of Stynx:

Wow! Never heard Paul Lynde's music. minus this Lifetime bio I saw on him. Thanks, Clay. Btw, did Charles Nelson Reily have any LPs?
  2:57pm Matt from Springfield:

I didn't know this was from "Bye Bye Birdie" until Tom Scharpling mentioned it. I just knew the Simpsons parody.

@julie: The best thing about the US going into DST earlier than us was that I could catch one more hour of your show before being really late for work. I'll turn in late again tomorrow.
  2:57pm Tom:

the study consists of 90 adults around the same age. seems pretty authoritative to me!
  2:58pm Board Reader:

I'll take Paul Lynde for the win
  2:58pm Cecile:

I never liked the singer on this, but enjoyed the riff. I just pretended Bon Scott was singing over it. With better words.
  2:58pm Parking Lot of Stynx:

Tom Keifer vs. Brian Johnson (AC/DC) vs. Britny Fox vocalist - who wins?
  2:59pm Cecile:

Parking Lot: Bon Scott.
  2:59pm fred:

@Parking Lot: Amanda!

Deserving of a second look? Close scrutiny?

Good listening-to, Clay.
