Listen to this show:  Pop‑up player!

Artist Track Album Label Year Format Comments
This first half of this show was recorded at the Occupy Wall Street Farmer's March, (December 4th, 2011), at the La Plaza Cultural Farmer's Garden (9th St. and Avenue C - Manhattan). A march followed, ending at Zuccotti Park. The second half of the program (taped Dec. 6th 2011) involved a march from Bryant Park to the Crown Plaza Hotel in Times Square, to protest Monsanto CFO Pierre Corduroux and to draw attention to the corporation's dubious GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) applications in industrial agriculture.

  Another week - another episode. Seems I just blink my eyes and I am climbing the steps to the broadcast studios of WFMU each week. I hope you have been following these Occupy Wall Street shows. I realize it is not something that everyone is interested in and I hope I am not alienating anyone. Since I love to do on-the-street interviews, OWS has provided me with a great opportunity to get inside something vital, exciting and ever-changing. As for myself, I started as an observer and have ended up getting a bit caught up in it along the way. Not sure where it;s leading, but I guess I am along for the ride and am hoping for the best. I hope you'll continue to tune-in. I'm sure that soon I'll do more music shows, theme shows. stories, live stuff, Triumvirate, etc. ----- Hope you are surviving the holiday hectic-ness. Life is good! Until next time, my friends, Take care and ... Always Remember.

Clay Pigeon - NYC

PS - Drop me an email (nooooo!) I'd love to hear your thoughts on OWS or any subject of interest to you. My mailbox has been cobweb-laden of late. OK. That's all.

Listener comments!

  6:03pm Clay:

  6:04pm kata:

hi Clay!
  6:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Hello Clay!
Nice change to agricultural and environmental issues in the OWS series. Like a Rolling Stone/Mother Jones sustainable agriculture article presented to us in real time!
  6:04pm phillip:

And the saga continues. OWS
  6:05pm phillip:

Monsanto needs to go down.
  6:05pm Clay:

Hi Kata. Hello Matt. Always nice words from you, sir. Hello Phillip.
  6:06pm david:

"consumptive" hmm. Dermit on the other hand...
  6:06pm seang:

Occupy Boston is facing eviction tonight
  6:07pm Matt from Springfield:

@phillip: Let's all pick an industrialized agricultural conglomerate to rip on! I'm going with: Archer-Daniels-Midland (ADM)!
  6:09pm frances:

Your OWS/Occupy Milwaukee/etc coverage is so great. I've been a fan of you for years and as soon as OWS began: I hoped you'd be on the street covering it. I've been happy to share links to your archived shows with all my friends...
  6:09pm Paul McC:

All your life...
You were only waiting for this moment to arrive.
  6:10pm david:

I love Fabio and his show but he's been drinking too much MSM if he thinks OWS is winding down...
  6:10pm Clay:

TY so much Frances.
  6:10pm Clay:

John Lennon - Always Remembered.
  6:11pm Paul McC:

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see

All your life...
You were only waiting for this moment to be free.
  6:12pm paula pc:

this is beautiful -- John Lennon would be proud I think -- strawberry and other fields forever...thank you, Clay.
  6:13pm Clay:

TY Paula. :>)
  6:14pm Clay:

Matt ... that was a good idea. DuPont
  6:14pm david:

I'm surprised Yoko hasn't been more visible at OWS events, though I know Sean has been down to Zuccotti...
  6:15pm frances:

I'm hopeful to think that this case http://www.beckersettlement.com/ (I was one of the arrestees) , the largest class action settlement of protestor claims in U.S. history, is part of why the DC police have been a bit more restrained than other cities.
  6:15pm Clay:

Guess people want to see which way the wind blows with it, David.
  6:16pm Clay:

Restrained is good.
  6:17pm Blee:

US foods should be required to label all GMO foods.
  6:17pm Matt from Springfield:

@Clay 6:14: You probably know of quite a few, that dominate IA and WI!
  6:19pm phillip:

@ Matt: has to be Cadbury for me.
  6:19pm Clay:

Especially these days, Matt.
  6:22pm kata:

I started eating (almost) 100% organic about 10 years ago, it is quite remarkable the difference; non-organic vegetables have less flavor and are harder, almost brittle compared to organic.
  6:22pm frances:

Shout out to Ackley,IA (where my husband is from)
  6:23pm Clay:

Wow, Frances! Ackley!
  6:24pm Matt from Springfield:

@kata: Tomatoes especially. In fact the only tomatoes I really eat (and eat with vigor!) are HOME-grown tomatoes when they're ripe, August to September. No comparison to the store kinds!
  6:24pm Clay:

My wife has been making kale. Very darned good.
  6:25pm mark from VT:

sometimes I wonder if we are fighting for change and on the other hand want it to be the way it used to be, or was supposed to be...I guess that is the big battle ahead for us all....what the heck is ahead of us...we don't know. The best we can come up with is examples from the past
  6:25pm frances:

Yes, I've mentioned this before in prior emails to you. =) I've got a bunch of IA photos on Flickr. Maid Rite rules, ok!
  6:25pm phillip:

I rarely ever come across anything organic that has had a bad texture or taste. As for conventional, it was mostly disappointing.
  6:25pm Marmalade Kitty:

grow your own! good on ya!!
  6:25pm frances:

Lacinato kale is my favorite of the kales, not so easy to find on the east coast. I still want to make kale chips!
  6:26pm Clay:

Maid-Rites do rule. Don't worry Mark. Good days ahead.
  6:26pm Clay:

The Marm. Hello!
  6:26pm frances:

(and yes , I grow my own kale. Among other veggies)
  6:27pm kata:

@matt - also broccoli is a good barometer. Making organic broccoli at home, it is so sweet and flavorful. Then I go to a restaurant and the broccoli has no flavor. I live on the west coast where many markets carry ONLY organic vegetables, it's fantastic!
  6:28pm Matt from Springfield:

Shout out to Maine farmers!
@kata: Never thought of organic broccoli--thanks for the suggestion.
  6:28pm Marmalade Kitty:

Hi everyone! great show Clay!
  6:28pm Matt from Springfield:

Evening, MK!
  6:29pm phillip:

Is Chick-fil-a still filing a lawsuit against the "Eat More Kale" guy?
  6:29pm kata:

@Clay - tried kale for the first time when I moved west in late 90s. It is great and super good for you! I love dinosaur / black kale.. I think Lancinato is the same, right @Frances?
  6:29pm david:

what Cash track/album is this?
  6:31pm frances:

@kata : you are correct! I only recently learned that Lacinato= Dinosaur kale from my neighbor as we discussed veggies & life on the bus...
  6:31pm kata:

Also, have you ever had a home grown strawberry? Tiny incredible bursts of beautiful sweetness! You'll never go back to those flavorless behemoths at shop rite ever again...
  6:31pm Clay:

David, that was Tommy Cash, Johnny's younger brother (eight-year's difference in age). From the LP, Six White Horses.
  6:32pm david:

thanks Clay, wow, sounds so much like Johnny...
  6:32pm Matt from Springfield:

@VT Mark: What should we fight for? The past, present and future. Whatever is, was or can be sustainable, healthy and just, in food and society. That's how I would sum it up :)
  6:34pm mark from VT:

I love the USA. But because I love freak shows and uncertainty. The biggest freak show is how we all live and survive in a wacky capitalism/fascism nation with most people not realizing it. Much of the fun is watching "activists" in their futile attempts at wanting "change"
  6:35pm Matt from Springfield:

@kata: I used to eat tiny wild strawberries that grew in my yard! I wonder how much more flavor a full sized one will have. (I also eat wild berries in the local park, and wild grapes (also tiny) in the Appalachians).
  6:36pm Marmalade Kitty:

we need response from the power that be. They must acknowledge the concerns and home truths OWS has raised. Acknowledgement is the most important demand..!!!!
  6:36pm Clay:

Interesting, Mark. It is wacky. Not futile, though!
  6:38pm Half Baked:

"MARIJUANA??? That is some BULLLSHIT!"
  6:39pm mark from VT:

I suppose it is not all futile. change does come.
  6:40pm kata:

It seems to me that in the occupy movement, age is irrelevant and I love that. There is wisdom at every level of life. This young homeless fella has some good points about how our focus on money pulls us apart.
  6:42pm Matt from Springfield:

Infrasound, aka Extremely low frequencies, aka Subsonic:
  6:42pm Matt from Springfield:

It does affect how you think and feel: some horror movies overdub infrasound as a (cheapshot) way to increase physical uneasiness and anxiety in an audience.
  6:43pm Clay:

It is a cheap shot
  6:43pm Blee:

True Food - Non GMO guide:
  6:44pm mark from VT:

but I am thinking to myself that the change we really want will continue to haunt us 30 years from now. Think about 30 years from now. Will we still have camps and OWS? Something will change to end this. And school kids will be told about it. But really, thirty years from now!! same shit going on in part.
  6:46pm ?:

Who can speak about 30 years from now? 30 years ago the wealth inequality in this country was much less.
  6:47pm Clay:

I'll be 83.
  6:47pm Marmalade Kitty:

peaceful protest is never in vain
  6:47pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh no, not WFMU's "pierre"!! ;)
  6:48pm Clay:

True, Marmalade Kitty.
  6:48pm kata:

I agree Marmalde Kitty !
  6:51pm phillip:

www.naturalnews.com. That news source freaks me out from the stories they get. Do check them out if you get a chance.
  6:52pm phillip:

They make me feel like i need to live in a bubble on another planet.
  6:53pm Matt from Springfield:

GoooooOOOO Occupy Big Food!
  6:53pm Matt from Springfield:

@MK: There's some more "repossessing" of abandoned homes! Yes!
  6:54pm Clay:

Thanks for your support as I've been doing all these OWS shows. I appreciate it. I never counted on doing so many.
  6:54pm mrmucho:

gee, looks like the Dusty Show didn't make the winter schedule! this OWS spinoff is about as good as "Gloria"
  6:54pm Matt from Springfield:

The common law once said that if you squatted on abandoned property for two years, it was yours. It needs to be that way.
  6:54pm Clay:

Take care you guys. Always remember.
  6:55pm kata:

thanks Clay, love these stories from people!
  6:55pm Bad Ronald:

Great work Clay, thanks!
  6:56pm mark from VT:

30 years from now Chuck Norris will still be alive, amazingly. He decided, in his old age, that he would allow the OWS to keep going.
  6:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Thank you, Clay!
Every time the show topic is announced, I wonder if you've done too many Occupy shows. Then I listen and realize this is continually important, and there's always something new to discover! This food one is even more amazing and new!
  6:56pm frances:

thanks for playing one of my favorite songs, Clay. Always remember.
  6:56pm Bas, NL:

Nice one again Clay!
  6:57pm Clay:

Mr. Mucho ... hahahahaaaaa!
  6:57pm phillip:

Good night guys. Hope never dies, until it kills you.
  6:57pm Matt from Springfield:

Peace to John Lennon, 31 years ago.
"Across The Universe" is such a nice fit for the occasion and this particular episode.
  6:58pm mark from VT:

Chuck Norris loves the OWS so much that he once round house kicked the movement to Mars just to see if it had any remote chances of surviving.
  6:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Good night everyone!
Another great one Clay!
  6:59pm Marmalade Kitty:

The Dusty show is *always* relevant..!
  6:59pm frances:

just the facts!
  7:04pm mark from VT:

Clay once round house wished someone into a garbage can. But he felt bad after. The other guy, I mean.
  7:07pm Night Al:

Oh waiter, there's a GMO in my soup.
