Listener comments!

  6:07pm Matt from Springfield:

I was unaware she used to be on with Clay until I started listening to old Archives.
  6:07pm Clay:

  6:08pm Cecile:

This is great.
  6:08pm Matt from Springfield:

Btw, also wasn't aware of your Halloween show Clay (I was watching the original "The Wicker Man" then), but I have since listened to that Archive. And...you did another story Clay! Great job!
  6:08pm Clay:

TY Cecile
  6:09pm Cecile:

tell me about that Iowa band, that was way 70s pop in the early 80s.
  6:09pm PMD:

It really is a good show.
  6:09pm moo:

the dusty show is the only one i like to listen to over the air crackly on the kitchen radio
this really is so far so great
  6:09pm other david:

This makes me want to make it across the pond to the record fair, even more.
  6:09pm Cecile:

Sort of like how it was back then.
  6:10pm Matt from Springfield:

I listen to Brian Turner, I'm not surprised about the Chirp song--he actually knows about a wide variety of obscure bubblegum and glam from the 70s.
  6:10pm dale:

he was her professor? nasty!
  6:10pm dale:

nanny and the professor!
  6:11pm Clay:

Cecile, the were called HAWKS on COlumbia Records (1982) Former members were in a band that I remember from high school named, Westmin'str. I had been looking for that Hawks LP for years and finally saw it in a dollar bin.
  6:12pm dale:

other david - you use a long wire? what receiver are you using?
  6:12pm PMD:

Where did you have to run to Clay?
  6:12pm Cecile:

That couple is 1000% right.
My friend married her professor - but she was only 8 yrs younger than he was - she was grown with a kid.

Thanks, Clay, that cut sounded really nice.
Clay, do you know this Iowa band called Locust? A friend really liked their album.
  6:13pm Clay:

Band playing live was Black Hollies and they were very good.
  6:13pm dale:

hey clay, how's margaretville fairing?
  6:13pm Stevey Stockton:

Clay, what's the name of this Gown track/album? I missed it if you said it.

Also, great job MCing the record fair on sunday!
  6:14pm Cecile:

I like their CDs a lot, CLay. They do a great job of reinventing 60s pop.
  6:14pm Clay:

Cecile i TOTALLY know Locust. They used to play at my high school and my idol was Keith Brown. OMG! He's still my hero. I have Hold On To America on one of my premiums.
  6:15pm Cecile:

Nice, Clay. I figured if anyone would know them, it would be you.
  6:15pm Clay:

Not sure Stevey. Seems like it had a plain title like Jimmy's Jam or something.
  6:15pm Andrea on the M62:

what was the name of that band he bought a cd from?
  6:16pm Matt from Springfield:

"Romanticide"! That's one of the Living In Oblivion 80s comp songs! Right before then they had "Guilty" by Classic Nouveau--so the sequence suggests being guilty of romanticide!

Public Image Ltd! Never heard them before I found this station!
  6:18pm dale:

saw p.i.l. at the beacon theater for a few songs - friend was wierded out by pot smoke and we had to leave.
  6:18pm Cecile:

I really like how the current kids have picked up the mantle of Soft Cell, etc. The bands immediately after them, not so much.
  6:18pm other david:

@dale: heh, we're nerding this right up

I use an end fed wire, with a matchbox - it's resonant around 6 Megs/14 Megs & 27/28 - it's just about 30 feet up and around 10M long. have a Yaesu FT-450, it can transmit, but I'm not a ham so... just use it as a nice receiver
  6:19pm mark from barre vt:

where the hell was Clay P during the record fair? Usually he is ubiquitous. I missed seeing him.
  6:20pm david:

free man in paris about david geffen who knew
  6:20pm Matt from Springfield:

Joni Mitchell's Court And Spark!
That whole album is great. I also have it on LP (Purchased I think in Carrboro, NC)
  6:22pm Cecile:

well, gotta go. have a great show, Clay.
This tears it. I gotta make it to Record Fair some year.
  6:22pm tom halsall:

clay: we are enjoying the show! It was great to meet you at the fair. We will
podcast your show every week! Doreen was so touched by your sincere
observation that she and I are so still in love with each other! Clay, you are
sooo cool!
  6:22pm Clay:

That was a cool youtube version of Free Man In Paris with Jaco Pastorius and Pat Metheny. Sounds scholarly, I know, but the musicanship was fantastic. They seemed stimulated.
  6:23pm david:

Shoutout for Tony Coulter I like that
  6:24pm glenn:

i know a luthier who made a whacky guitar / lute / mandolin / harp thingy for pat metheny.
  6:24pm dale:

@other david, i just use a long wire with my grundig satellit 700, or 800. Have a yachtboy, the bazazzo, too and a couple of sangeans, . i actually prefer analog tuning over digital.
  6:25pm Ike:

Clay, this talk of $1 albums reminds me of the idea that maybe you should set aside some cheesy old $1 70s & 80s LPs to use as prizes during the next marathon. Also, I'm surprised b/c most of these selections appeal to me much more than your usual musical melange.
  6:26pm Clay:

Dale, a belated Happy Birthday!!!! By the way ... my uncle Ron was a Ham Radio guy. Our neighbor Dick was a Civil Defense broadcaster. Their gear was so cool.
  6:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Tony Coulter fans if you're on here, keep in mind that Tony's on our Give The Drummer Some stream (128k .pls only), every (other?) Tuesday, 12-3 pm.
  6:26pm david:

Four Jacks and a Jill - they were South African I think
  6:28pm other david:

@dale - I'm currently working at repairing the radio my dad grew up with, a 50's Cossor with vacuum tubes, I remember it glowing in the corner as a kid myself, the best sound.. a dial marked with place names rather than just numbers
  6:28pm dale:

thanks clay! 52 years young - sigh. i think all the ham guys were the only line of communication upstate during irene. always wanted a license, bought a book to take the test and everything. but it all goes in the proverbial closet with my metal detecting, and astronomy, and heathkit building, woodburning set, etc.
  6:28pm Matt from Springfield:

@david: Is that the Four Jacks and a Jill referenced in Spinal Tap? I heard somewhere that Fred Willard as the unhip Air Force major actually mentioned a real band when he tells Spinal Tap about Kansas City.
  6:29pm Stevey Stockton:

thanx clay, i'll try to track it down
  6:32pm david:

@MFS not sure it's been too long - and I'm all over that Give the Drummer Some stream... Clay's so good at separating the wheat from the chaff in vinyl from genre burnout periods - when I try to do the same I end up with an armful of Yellowjackets
  6:33pm other david:

You know what's awesome?

Seeing the pledge meter on the main page still going up after awe-tober :)
  6:33pm dale:

@other david - come over here and you can restore a set that was in the attic when i bought my house. a nice stromberg carlson tombstone.
  6:34pm Clay:

Look online Stevey - I did - you'll find it. Skol!
  6:34pm other david:

@dale - put that on hold, let's see if I blow this radio up first :P
  6:35pm dale:

i think i have four or five copies of the smothers brothers live at the green onion. i'd give this guy a couple.
  6:35pm Clay:

Thanks to all of you who pledged. I haven't said it enough, but I really appreciate your support for Dusty and fMU!!!
  6:36pm dale:

other david, you receive wbcq over there?
  6:36pm mark from barre vt:

oh maybe I missed Clay this year. I was at the symposium all day saturday but went down once in awhile too see people, and look for Clay, and on Sunday I was in the studio during Glen Jones and at the fair after. But I remember Clay being there near all of the time last year as to not miss him.
  6:37pm glenn:

oh my god. i thought frankie goes to hollywood couldn't possible get worse. i was wrong.
  6:37pm moo s:

holy heck that frankie stuff was amazing
came in from washing dishes to say
  6:37pm other david:

@dale - yep! They have interesting programs, it's a real shame they're reduced to airing some religious fanatics to pay the bill
  6:38pm Clay:

That Frankie goes on for a whole album!
  6:39pm Matt from Springfield:

@glenn: I'm amazed Clay was the first to play that Frankie, and not BT--normally he's the go-to weird vocal samples DJ!
  6:39pm moo s:

i feel like ken needs a copy of that
  6:40pm dale:

marion's attic is a great show. they used to have a show called pocket calculator that was cool, too. web streaming killed so much of shortwave
  6:41pm Matt from Springfield:

An On-Air Dusty Show listener survey !
  6:43pm glenn:

charley's basically toto. without the edge.
  6:44pm other david:

Dale, yep, it's progress, but, there's something unique about hearing voices from thousands of miles away bouncing off the ionosphere, the occasional fades.. other stations crossing in..

that being said wfmu does a damn good job of serving my random sound needs, very thankful for the streams & archives :)
  6:46pm mikecabe:

I feel stoopid for asking but what is 'pizza love'? Is this some kinky tumblr thing?
  6:46pm dale:

so long as there are sw broadcasters and dx'ers out there, at least the equipment is still useful. unlike my analog sony watchmans, however.
  6:47pm Matt from Springfield:

Ah, the classic, stable tape turn-over! AnalogPigeon!

And Tom S.! He made a pledge to Dusty (and most the other talk shows) this year!
  6:47pm Joe E:

I hope the show is uploaded this evening! I'll need my fix.
  6:47pm glenn:

c.b.c. overnight plays stuff from all over the world. very good for insomniacs. i love deutsche welle.
  6:47pm dale:

remember gilda radnor - I am jane's uvuala!
  6:47pm Clay:

But aren't all the analog TV signals gone Dale?
  6:48pm mark from barre vt:

shoot. Clay was at the record fair on Saturday and I was up stairs for the symposium. darn. but I came down once in awhile and didn't see him.
  6:48pm Matt from Springfield:

After playing a streak of Zeppelin, Tom should say that he's playing it all over again--with his new clean vinyl! Piss off any anti-Zeppelinites! :P
  6:49pm dale:

cbc is very good. used to like carlton wong's cooking segments on china's sw english broadcasts
  6:49pm wiki:

As of late 2009, ten countries had completed the process of turning off analog terrestrial broadcasting. Many other countries had plans to do so or were in the process of a staged conversion. The first country to make a wholesale switch to digital over-the-air (terrestrial television) broadcasting was Luxembourg in 2006, followed later in 2006 by the Netherlands; in 2007 by Finland, Andorra, Sweden, Norway, and Switzerland; in 2008 by Belgium (Flanders) and Germany; in 2009 by the United States (high power stations -- the important ones), southern Canada, the Isle of Man, Norway, and Denmark. In 2010, Belgium (Wallonia), Spain, Wales, Latvia, Estonia, the Channel Islands, and Slovenia; in 2011 Israel, Austria, Monaco, Scotland, Cyprus, and Japan (excluding Miyagi, Iwate, and Fukushima Prefectures) completed the transition.
  6:50pm dale:

yeah, clay. my watchmans are just interesting looking paper weights now.
  6:50pm glenn:

huh? jimmy page couldn't even carry richard thompson's guitar case. he's a great producer, though.
  6:51pm david:

"Stick around, Jack, it may show"
  6:52pm dale:

stick around JACK!
  6:52pm kata:

Elvis does a cover of George's 'Something' also, it is very bizarre..
  6:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Liked Sinatra's lyrics in "Something"--George himself liked to sing those lyrics live after he heard them!
  6:53pm dale:

david beat me to the 'jack' i love franks version of it's not easy being green.
  6:54pm Matt from Springfield:

@Clay: This Dusty Show seems to have the widest range of musical styles!
  6:54pm Clay:

TY Matt! I'm trying to branch out.
  6:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Hells yeah! Therese, Tom S., Irwin, all-star interview lineup tonight!
  6:54pm Visionista:

aww, Irwin...
  6:55pm dale:

clay -puh-LEEZE bring back one show with dusty and colonel carl. maybe colonel could do the interviews
  6:55pm Visionista:

has that man ever had a serious political thought, ever?
  6:55pm Rancorite:

@Irwin: BECAUSE! We - are - the 99 percent! Whaddaya mean, without rancor??!!
  6:56pm david:

cmon now Irwin - OWS isn't representative democracy whereby one chokes on the TV dinner cheering for a hero - it's participatory democracy! it doesn't get spoon-fed to you! :) much love
  6:56pm Visionista:

don't get me wrong. I still love the man, dearly... but he's just not stepping up the plate
  6:56pm Clay:

Gotta run my friends. Thanks for listening. We are the 99%! Always remember ... Denver.
  6:57pm Matt from Springfield:

You couldn't dub the mournful piano music over Irwin? You would if this was a man of the street interview!!
  6:57pm dale:

i'll bet day one when obama walked into the oval office he was briefed on stuff that would make anyone's head spin. it 's probably worse out there than we think
  6:57pm glenn:

aw irwin. i can forgive you amanda, but herman cain? fuck a duck.
  6:57pm mikecabe:

Irwin does not know a single Cramps song. Nuf said.
  6:57pm other david:

Brilliant show Clay, thank you :)
  6:58pm Visionista:

I'd take amanda as prez over any of the current republican candidates, any day
  6:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Good night Clay! Good night everybody!
  6:58pm 12539:

Great digishow Clay.
