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!

  Thanks for listening to this FOUR HOUR extravaganza my friends. It sure was fun playing all that music and just dropping in my interview stuff here and there. Very hard to do that in a one-hour format. I want to thank Brendan Burke of the OWS De-Escalation Team for being my special guest. My FIRST special guest I think on Dusty. Well ... maybe Grandma Phyllis. Anyway ... as always I wish I could have the hour back, because I always think of cool questions later on, or wish I hadn't said some of the dumb stuff I said. Life is like that. For some reason, as I am typing this, 12:59 am April 16th, 2012, I am feeling a good deal of visceral anxiety. Mostly that I might suck, which is a very real possibility, and that my gear is wearing out. My micro-cassette recorder (the model is now no longer made by Radio Shack {and it is the unit that delivers the classic Dusty sound}). Also, I am down to my last dual-cassette deck. The special model whose model number I won't even mention anymore. Damn. Why can't things just be around forever? Why? Why must obsolescence follow us and the products we love around like some deranged hyena, waiting to bite and inflict pain and virulent rabies on us? That's how it feels. Anyway ... I am just trying to hold it together here. The wheels just feel real damned wobbly right now. Thanks for all your support and loyalty listener. Seriously. It;s important to me and to TDS. Onward we go, Another week. Let me know if the sound quality gets to bad and I'll go digital, but it will suck and it would probably be the end for Dusty. That normalcy. That sterile sameness. Ugh. Take care and have a great week. Always remember.

  3:07pm Caryn:

4 hours of Clay! Nice.
  3:07pm Matt from Springfield:

Pigeon plays Partridge!

Heeeeeeeyyyy Clay! Four hour MEGA-GANZA today! I'm ready for it!
Avatar 3:08pm Clay:

  3:08pm Cecile:

hey, clay, all!
  3:08pm Mike East:

what a treat!
  3:08pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, surreal. The Lennon Pipers.
Almost as off as Lawrence Welk playing "One Toke Over The Line".
  3:09pm kata:

woah, nice surprise..
Avatar 3:09pm Clay:

Hey Matt! Hey Cecile!
  3:09pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey Mike!
And, congrats on the baby--I saw your earlier comment!
  3:11pm earwax:

Yay Clay!
  3:11pm Parq:

Clay to take me through the end of my working day -- oh, words fail me.
  3:12pm jk:

afternoon Clay! great surprise to hear you on the air.
If anyone wants to watch a bird sitting around while you listen, you can do so here: http://www.allaboutbirds.org/page.aspx?pid=2433
Avatar 3:12pm Clay:

I hope you are DANCING
  3:12pm Parq:

And Mike East is a new dad? Way to go, man. Good thing you have FMU to keep you company through all that not sleeping.
  3:12pm Matt from Springfield:

@Parq: Play the Archive of his last 4 hour fill in for Fabio when you punch in.
Go to lunch, come back and listen to this live. Helps you through the whole working day.
  3:13pm seang:

Word Up
  3:13pm Ralphine:

That beat is a little too technotronic to dance to.
  3:13pm Cecile:

Mike East, congrats!
  3:14pm wildneil:

Rock on Clay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3:14pm Mike East:

Aww shucks, thanks guys. Its still inside my wife's belly though. Very exciting. I'll let ya'll know how it comes out!
  3:14pm The Marmot:

Hooray! For all the fill in shows i miss, I was lucky enough to catch this one right as it started. 4 Hours of Clay HOORAY!!
  3:14pm dc pat:

Haha, Mike East is a dad..congratulations, it's a great way to be.
  3:14pm Matt from Springfield:

@Parq,Mike: Heh, Nat Roe would probably upset a little one even more, but on the small chance a baby would like Nat, that would be ideal for the FMU parent!
  3:16pm Caryn:

I remember being in elementary school when Technotronic had their hits. My dad loathed them. To this day, if he wants to mock dance music or rap, he starts doing Technotronic in a whiny voice...
  3:17pm Matt from Springfield:

A lot of dusty vinyl exhumation today I presume?
Make this the DUSTIEST, DUSTY show ever Clay!
  3:17pm Big E:

Clay--what's the chance we could get some boogie-rock up in here?
Avatar 3:18pm Clay:

  3:18pm seang:

are the phones in mono?
  3:19pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: Remember when Clay did a riff on Julie's goth music, "I'll Be The One Who's Wearing Black"? Pure goldeness :)

Whenever I'm doing a riff on Bauhaus or other 70s/80s early goth music, for some reason I always sing to the tune of The Church's "Shadow Cabinet"--which isn't goth at all. I don't know why, maybe it's just easier to make up stuff to that tune..
  3:19pm Caryn:

Clay, are you going to be playing any of those songs you were talking about that you hate but are trying to expose yourself to in the hopes of liking them?
  3:21pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Wow..Between Dave M's Classic moments during the the last 3 hours & Clay's potential in the next 4, the POP police are gonna be woikin' it!
Looking forward!
  3:21pm miss cheri:

hi there clay--do you any bowie tunes around?
  3:22pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

oh I love this tune!
  3:22pm miss cheri:

  3:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Which song is this btw?
Clay, if you can try to post some titles to the left after you put them on.
  3:24pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

you can't chain that bird, MFS
  3:24pm miss cheri:

hey caryn,,what's happening?
  3:25pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: True, that bird has flown. And continues to fly.
  3:25pm Jim:

I think it's called San Francisco Girls, Matt.
  3:26pm Matt from Springfield:

I'm "MFS"...I've seen "fishmonkeystew" abbreviated as "FMS", but I have yet to be on the same playlist at the same time as him.

Thanks Jim.
  3:26pm Cecile:

balloon farm
  3:28pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Avatar 3:28pm Clay:

You knew Cecile
  3:28pm Vicki:

hello :))) this is my favourite Monkees song
  3:29pm Woo:

The Monkees are equally fabulous.
  3:29pm Matt from Springfield:

This is a good one, many FMU DJs have played this in tribute to Davy, but I first heard the Boyce & Hart version a couple years ago (they wrote this and several others for the Monkees). That's also a great arrangement.
  3:29pm mrmucho:

let's hear some uriah heep
  3:29pm Caryn:

Nesmith was my definite fave.
  3:29pm Mr Donut:

Remember the Corn Flakes commercial? They all pour in the cereal then the milk then the sugar. Then Peter does all that in reverse and they look at him like What are you crazy? Which of course he is!
  3:30pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey Vicki! :)
  3:30pm Jim:

When I was a kid I liked "Sometime in the Morning." Still do, come to think of it.
  3:30pm Vicki:

and the Rolling Stones did a breakfast cereal advert too - the music - I think coco pops
  3:30pm wildneil:

My sister would let me out of my skinner box and we would watch the Monkees in the 70's...those were the days! Freed from the baby cage! I am not kidding, I used to climb out of the playpen, so my dad made a big wodden roof on my playpen, compelte with access hatch...this is why I am "wild" neil
  3:31pm Matt from Springfield:

I've never seen The Monkees show, but I like that Mike has actually written many songs (including Linda Ronstadt and The Stone Ponies' "Different Drum").
  3:31pm Woo:

Thank you for keeping the Davy tribute going. Isn't tonight the Hall of Fame thing? Isn't there a certain group missing? Hell, Tommy James should be in there too.
  3:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Sweet Cherry Wine!
Jonesy played this for Easter, he seems to play this quite a bit.
  3:33pm Parq:

"Only God has the right .." -- amazing how theistic some of these 60s message songs were. Remember the last verse of "Signs"?
  3:33pm Matt from Springfield:

I literally have more Tommy James with and without The Shondells, "than you could ever need, want, or even physically tolerate".
  3:34pm Matt from Springfield:

@Parq: Huge focus on the spiritual throughout the 60s, including in social justice.
Tommy soon after became a "Christian" singer, with lyrics that actually weren't particularly religious.
  3:35pm Mike East:

yes, Matt (re: Jonesy). Makes me happy every time he plays it. I believe I was dancing around the house on Sunday (which is typical between 12-3)
  3:35pm Matt from Springfield:

@wildneil: Always wild at heart!
  3:36pm geokopp:

Tommy James lives in cedar grove NJ!
  3:36pm Listener Jimbo:

Matt: Nesmith has said that Pete was a better musician than himself.
  3:37pm Parq:

Matt, dig it, but it's like all the references to getting married in rockabilly music -- these guys were supposedly the apocalypse when it came to traditional values, and most of them seemingly were more traditional than I am.
  3:37pm fxo:

give it up for "the pidg"
  3:39pm Woo:

Here we go! Spirit! One of greatest greatest hits albums ever.
  3:39pm Cecile:

I like this kind of 70s melancholy sometimes. Upbeat music, depressing lyrics.
  3:39pm Cheri Pi:

I've had this song in my head for the last month.
  3:39pm Woo:

Clay, do you have Lady Eleanor by Lindasfarne?
  3:39pm Mr Donut:

Damn - I always thought this was Paul McCartney
  3:40pm Matt from Springfield:

@Jimbo: Peter Tork, now he's a greater mystery to me than the rest. Anyone here a particular fan of his? I just know from a recent RS article that Pete and Mike were the musicians who wanted to take The Monkees serious direction, while Mickey and Davy were actors who were okay with the way it was.
  3:41pm dave:

jack cassidy from jefferson airplane isnt it?
  3:41pm seang:

  3:41pm Cheri Pi:

I'm cranking this up
  3:41pm dc pat:

gotta follow this up with the minutemen version
Avatar 3:42pm Clay:

For YOU Seang Rock it!
  3:42pm Parq:

I mis-rememebered the artist behind "Nature's Way" as well, but I thought it was Badfinger. Not far from Paulie, yeh?
  3:42pm BubbaWatson:

Keep on Rockin' -I miss Rodney on the course.
  3:42pm Fredericks:

Sorry I'm late.
  3:43pm tim from champaign:

Clay, I love Fabio's show but I'm going to root for you during the next Clay vs Fabio throwdown. You've got Van Halen in your bag of tricks.
  3:43pm dave:

bass player in spirit
  3:43pm Mr Donut:

Paul was the fifth Badfinger
Avatar 3:44pm Clay:

Champaign. Home of REO and Starcastle!!!!
  3:44pm BubbaWatson:

Did it smell?
  3:44pm Ralphine:

I read that David Lee Roth really sucked at Van Halen's Miami show a couple of days ago.
  3:44pm Matt from Springfield:

Dunlop EVH95, that's the guitar pedal I was looking for. Eddie Van Halen used that wah pedal for that distinctive sound in "Ain't Talkin' Bout Love". It may have been an earlier Dunlop pedal at the time, but they later named it after EVH.
  3:45pm BubbaWatson:

I read that David Lee Roth was the most rockingnest dude!
  3:45pm BubbaWatson:

Nice Intro Clay!
  3:45pm Cheri Pi:

Motley Crue on Fabio's hour, naice!!
  3:45pm Cecile:

It's not a van Halen reunion w/o Michael Anthony.
  3:45pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

haha, that was cute, Clay, what you did there/
  3:46pm Mr Donut:

I hear DLR used to be semi good lookin
  3:46pm Matt from Springfield:

Whose biography was Clay reading from during the Hurricane shows? David Lee Roth, or Alex Van Halen's? I joked that he was really just talking about his own past as a rocker! ;)
  3:47pm BubbaWatson:

You got any Crimson, Clay?
  3:47pm Cheri Pi:

EVH taught me not to drink anything I couldn't see through.
  3:47pm dinatekno:

You have me playing air drums and air guitar in my shared cubicle - ROCK IT Clay!!! Thanks for making my afternoon so much fun!!
  3:48pm Ralphine:

How about Concrete and Clay?
  3:48pm BubbaWatson:

Tommy had a three stick drum stick set
  3:49pm Cecile:

Exactly, Clay. Justin Hawkins or Adam Lambert.
  3:50pm BubbaWatson:

Hey Clay can you play my apocalypse soiree?!
  3:51pm Caryn:

Queen were smart in their early days: run a clothing boutique, and you always have cool rocker clothes to wear for cheap or for free.
  3:51pm BubbaWatson:

I call it the Apocaplypso in Acapulco
  3:51pm wildneil:

Classic Rock fail!!!!!
  3:52pm Matt from Springfield:

WFMU is a collective Mr. Fahrenheit! Travelling at the speed of light--don't stop it!
  3:53pm Matt from Springfield:

@wildneil: Say what now? A "fail" just ain't possible with Queen! ;)
  3:54pm Cecile:

ha, you overestimate me, Clay.
  3:54pm dinatekno:

LITTLE WILLY!!!! I was 10 years old when this came out on the BELL label. Silver label 45.
  3:54pm BubbaWatson:

I feel like I am on my banana seat bike with my am transitor radio
  3:54pm Woo:

That vinyl crackle is one of the most beautiful sounds.
  3:55pm Cecile:

matt, i can take Queen in tiny, song-sized doses. More than that, and my blood sugar goes wacky.
  3:55pm Balding pudgy middle aged guy:

... is air-guitaring like crazy behind his desk. God, it's a good thing my office is around a corner.
  3:55pm Ralphine:

When I first heard that Brian May's guitar was homemade, I pictured a cigar box with a yardstick for a neck.
  3:56pm Matt from Springfield:

The Sweet!! Or, were they just "Sweet" at the time this was released? They friggin' rock in any case. First wave of Glam was the best.

Handclap in your cubes everyone!
  3:56pm octy:

this record sounds extra enhanced and "you are there" all scratched up.
  3:56pm Woo:

Two hours ago I was literally asleep in my cubicle. Now I'm hyperventaling.
  3:57pm Cheri Pi:

This is the first album I bought with my own babysitting money.
  3:57pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Now we're moving up to the '80s!
  3:57pm dc pat:

Eddy Grant's guitar was homemade too. And he is WAY cooler.
  3:57pm wildneil:

Joe Cope my neighbor blew my mind...Devo, Led Zeppelin, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, The B-52's...Adam and the Ants...
@everyone: I hereby retract "fail" since with Clay, failure is impossible!
  3:57pm Matt from Springfield:

@Cecile: Too much of anything I guess, but I've always been of the opinion that Queen doesn't have a bad song--much like Irwin said about YLT. Take any album, and play at a party; you'll be guaranteed to have at least a "good" background the entire time.
  3:57pm Cecile:

They were first The Sweet, then Sweet.

I have to say one of the funnier moments in the Motley Crue bio is when Brian from the Sweet blows off Nikki Sixx.
  3:57pm G:

chattier than a fabio board :-)
  3:58pm lil eddie:

all my record collector buddies make fun of me 'cuz i liked M persons but i LOVE Bozzio's drummin' man!!!
  3:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Clay turned me on to Missing Persons. "Destination Unknown" was one of their big hits, along with the amazing "What Are Words For". I'd like to listen to more of their catalogue someday.
  3:58pm dinatekno:

Zappa's drummer!
  3:59pm Caryn:

Sweet had good songs, but they clearly adopted the glam look because it was "in". They tended to look like miners in fancy dress... Always felt like they were not really into it.
  3:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Great Bozzio drumming indeed!
  3:59pm dinatekno:

Desolation Boulevard is still one of my favorite albums EVER!
  3:59pm geokopp:

how bout ' echo beach' next? martha & the muffins!
  4:00pm Cecile:

ha, they looked like dudes in makeup. No androgynous creatures, them. I like their record Give Us A Wink, thats' a great cheezy hard rock record.
  4:00pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: "Miners in fancy dress" well that WAS the entire Northern Glam movement, wasn't it? ;)

@G: Clay brings out the uninhibited chatter in all of us!
  4:00pm dinatekno:

+1 on geokopp's Echo Beach request!
  4:00pm Parq:

I supect MisPers was a studio construct. Heard 'em live on the radio once, and the signer sounded ten years older than on the album. Oh, but those were great singles, yeh?
  4:00pm WRECKEDUMB:

How's Dale Bozzio's dogs?
  4:01pm Parq:

  4:01pm ?:

miners in make up = good
  4:03pm Cheri Pi:

the Sweet have some of the worst bangs in Rock history (after Iron Maiden). Band Bangs of Rock.
  4:04pm tim from champaign:

Cecile, I recently picked up Give Us A Wink with the die-cut jacket. It's a good rekkid. It's got Detroit rock radio written all over it.
  4:04pm Fredericks:

Nostagia trip. Sweet, War? My pre-teen 45 collection.
  4:04pm Matt from Springfield:

@Cheri: Well, why take care of your bangs when you're just going to bang 'em, you know?
  4:05pm Cheri Pi:

**BBOR*** Bad bangs= most of my bf's Lp collection.
  4:05pm Droll:

Terry Bozzio is presently on tour with Wetton and Jobson (the second UK lineup). I'm not sure how many semis worth of drums he's touring with, though.
  4:05pm andymorphic:

i once knocked myself out listening into "slipping into darkness" love war
  4:06pm Cheri Pi:

Bang technology, like lycra trousers have vastly improved since then. It's endearing.
  4:06pm Caryn:

Chris Christie is now in my mind Chris "can't stay awake at a Springsteen concert" Christie. In honour of that news item, and in a tribute to Clarence, how about playing "Thunder Road", Clay?
  4:06pm Matt from Springfield:

Anyone hear about how Neo-Nazis went to Sanford, FL to "protect the whites", and Fox News called them a "community group" or something like that?

Disgustingly on par with what you'd expect.
  4:07pm BubbaWatson:

Tiger is cool at Augusta with me
  4:07pm dinatekno:

I currently live in Naples, FL - beautiful beaches. Ugly, racist people.
  4:09pm Matt from Springfield:

"Ain't no smiling faces / Lying to the races"
  4:09pm The Marmot:


little inspiration for the occupiers
  4:10pm Mike East:

A community of shit heads is still a community, Matt.
  4:10pm Lucy:

Hey Clay you should check out the anarchist book fair this saturday!
  4:11pm loki:

smilin faces ---perfect song for clay
  4:11pm ?:

ok so what do folks think about Maureen Tucker's active vocalisation of support for the Fascist Tea Party in America?
  4:11pm Matt from Springfield:

@Mike: Then why not at least be truthful about it? "Shit Heads Go To Shit Head Community To Protect Their Own" would make a fine headline...
  4:11pm northguineahills:

I was Naples oct 2010, beautiful coast, awesome food, and Floridians. (I lived 24 years throughout FL, and the rest of my family still live there)
  4:13pm Woo:

Moe played in the Velvet Underground. Phil Spector made great records. People are complicated.
  4:13pm Mr Donut:

People need to be boycotting Stand your Ground states
  4:14pm Matt from Springfield:

@?: She was great in her time, and hasn't really been in the spotlight at all since. So she's taken't a turn to the Tea Party in her old age, let her do what she wants.

Now as some commenter lately pointed out about Victoria Jackson, she sounds dangerously nuts. She grew up in a crazy Christian-ist family to begin with, then when she lost her fame she started acting ever more batshit.
  4:15pm Cecile:

What kind of neighborhood lets its watch pack heat? Our neighborhood watch is not allowed to do that. They have to call the cops.
  4:15pm ?:

so is she misguided or what? I mean how can you live through all of that and then support that crap?
  4:16pm Julie:

WTH Clay?
  4:16pm Caryn:

A day or two ago, a member of our local racist party suggested that all "foreigners", gays and people whose mother tongue was our minority language should be made to wear identifying armbands so that they can be easily identified... Sheesh.
  4:16pm Matt from Springfield:

@Mr Donut: The average person wasn't hollering for these laws--what could be a stronger impact is boycotting the NRA. I support all law-abiders' right to possess a firearm, but the NRA has become extremist in the past several decades, allowing for no reasonable, "responsible" gun ownership rules. If any friends are members, tell them to stop sending money to the NRA.

  4:41pm Cecile:

She lived in the 'burbs with her family from what I've read.

I always thought of her as "in the VU, not of it."
Also, there are plenty of conservative people who embody contradictions. As there are liberal and leftist ones.

Back in '96, when a friend of mine was driving from FL to Atlanta, we stopped in Douglas, GA to find Moe Tucker working at a Wall-Mart. Surreal.
  4:44pm Caryn:

Well, The Velvet Underground never seemed like a happy-happy group, even if we don't take into consideration the "in but not of" status of Mo, so for all we know, Maureen was miserable most of the time, and now associates that with the Factory crowd?
  4:44pm Mr Donut:

@NGH: What was Mo doing? Did you checkout with her?

No. I just found out I misquoted Winston Churchill, as I often do.
  4:48pm wikipedia:

Moe Tucker: "To be honest, I never paid attention to what the hell was going on. My always voting Democrat was the result of that. My philosophy was and is all politicians are liars, bums and cheats.”

I had heard that Tucker worked in a warehouse, not a store.

I met Moe in the UK in 1988, she had taken time off from her job at the store to do a tour. She was very generous and lovely. She gave me a cigarette, one of those long American ones...

Ah, good idea for a mid-way stretch! A "break in place", to the tune of Curtis Mayfield!

Well, then, maybe I made it up.
  4:52pm Caryn:

Well, after reading Johnny Ramone wax lyrical about how fantastic Reagan was, Moe's views don't come as such a surprise anymore. I think I've steeled myself to expect old faves of mine to turn out to have not-necessarily-expected political views. Not that either of these two is a huge surprise.

@Ralphine - I just fell on the floor laughing!
  4:54pm Cecile:

taste and politics are not necessarily linked
  4:55pm Caryn:

@Ralphine: I think you have fallen victim to a syndrome Stephen Fry once wrote about. Over time, memorable quotes end up being attributed to certain figures even if they've never said them. Churchill, Wilde, Dorothy Parker and Groucho Marx are some of the most common figures to whom quotes are attributed even if they never said them. I guess they are so famous for pithy phrases, that if you're unsure who originally said something, you automatically attribute it to one of them.
  4:56pm Question Mark:

@Cecile - but aesthetics and politics usually are linked
  4:57pm Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

Often attributed to Winston Churchill, The phrase originated with Francois Guisot (1787-1874): "Not to be a republican at twenty is proof of want of heart; to be one at thirty is proof of want of head." It was revived by French Premier Georges Clemenceau (1841-1929): "Not to be a socialist at twenty is proof of want of heart; to be one at thirty is proof of want of head."

I'm so glad Ken corrected Clay about the toilets. Actually, whether the water in your sink, tub or toilet flows clockwise or counter-clockwise (or just goes straight down) depends more on the shape of the sink/toilet bowl/tub than on the hemisphere you're on.

@PG: naah. Early on, there were a couple of small rallies in sympathy to the movement, but no OWS here in general.
  6:22pm Jim:

Matt, see if you can open this page. It's the scene from that Bible movie. The growl is at 2:43.

  6:22pm frances:

@Matt: Don't let fear get in your way, just make sure you always have an escape route in sight ;) and if it hits the way, hunker down & cope.
I hope to make contact with Occupy in Paris and Amsterdam next month, even if it's just to make a donation and encouragement.
  6:23pm Matt from Springfield:

@Jim: I'll see if I can open that at home. Thanks.
@frances: Good advice, thanks!
  6:24pm Philo Gristle:

Caryn, kinda figures. I always felt pretty apathetic over there.
  6:24pm northguineahills:

what's Brendan's last name? I have a friend who's w/ Occupy and is curious (he's at work and can't tune in right now)
  6:25pm frances:

Brendan Burke: http://globalchangetelevision.org/2012/03/27/occupy-wall-street-brendan-burke-occupier/
  6:26pm northguineahills:

danke!, frances!
  6:27pm Caryn:

@PG: yeah, there are other movements having rallies (today was the SETA rally), but I think most people here figure we're such a minor figure on the financial markets that having an OWS movement here would be pointless.
  6:28pm Matt from Springfield:

Occupy Jameson! ;)
  6:29pm northguineahills:

In Novemeber-December, I saw Occupy in Reykjavik, Berlin, and Mexico City.
  6:29pm frances:

wow, i'm really looking forward to tracking down music by both of Brendan's bands as well ! what a swell first in studio guest~
  6:30pm Matt from Springfield:

That seems true--all other guests have been pre-recorded street "interviews".
  6:30pm Matt from Springfield:

  6:34pm Matt from Springfield:

Anarchists and direct-democracy certainly don't get things done very quickly, but we've also seen the other advantages of such a lack of hierarchy.
  6:34pm Philo Gristle:

@Caryn: SETA and animal rights were always more prominent to my recollection than any other protest. Whether an illusion created by media, not sure.
  6:35pm kat330:

@NGH: How wonderful to have an exciting life traveling far and wide!
  6:36pm frances:

Sincere Question Clay: What does Brendan think of the new slick site: http://www.occupy.com/ ? Does he see it as step forward to cast a wider net or does he not dig that direction, just curious, thanks y'all !!
  6:37pm northguineahills:

...and now I'm broke as I haven't worked since July. (might have an interview next week, keeping fingers crossed)
  6:38pm Philo Gristle:

@Matt: Thanks for sharing the photos from Occupy Congress -- great set!
  6:38pm Matt from Springfield:

Good luck to you, NGH. Caryn as well.
Everyone cross your fingers!
  6:39pm Caryn:

@PG: yeah, SETA, animal rights, anti-war, students, anarchists and the occasional "take back the streets" street party are about it. And the May Day Communist parades.
  6:40pm Matt from Springfield:

@Philo,Kat: Thank you! Just a citizen-photojournalist, inspired by Clay's broadcasts! :)
  6:41pm Steve from SF:

Starbucks is fascism?
Really? The same as concentration camps and forced migration? Really?
  6:43pm Caryn:

Keeping fingers crossed, NGH!

Just found out by e-mail that there may be a publishing editor job available soon, but it's unsure if it's even going to exist, let alone that I'll get it vs. the other applicants. I just hope the position will actually become a reality... But on a lighter note, this weekend I will pay off the last bits of my student loan. Yay!
  6:43pm kat330:

@Matt: You are an indefatigable force to reckon with -- I have great admiration!
And I echo the good vibration hopes and well wishes to NGH and Caryn for gainful employment ASAP: }}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}} There ya go. That should do it! :>
  6:48pm Philo Gristle:

@Caryn -- from my youth I most vividly recall the takeover of Lepakko (peaceful takeover of an old building by young musicians), and then when I left Finland, Nokia bulldozed it over for a parking lot.
  6:48pm Caryn:

I seem to remember the US exported more oil last year than it imported. So at the moment, the "dependence on foreign oil" statement seems to be just an excuse to drill in nature reserves. But what the hell do I know.
  6:49pm Chico:

free energy is real, everyone can be off the grid if they want to be.
  6:49pm Matt from Springfield:

We're STILL the military for Saudi Arabia, an open secret among US foreign policy.

  6:50pm morr:

I am an anarchist. I wish no harm to any other. I am am anarchist because there is no other way for me.

I knocked my head up against a brick wall politically for years until I read a description of anarchism by albert camus. 'No one person has the right to govern another' and that you don't have to wait for liberation but that it is there for the taking right now. One just has to subscribe to the above sentiment.

That is however not the end but the beginning. For me it was like a rebirth and I have never looked back. I have always declared by stance - for many years and I am 'materially' the worse of for it - hurrah!

It is something no one will ever take away from me and it is something I will never enforce upon another.

The media use the word anarchy when they mean chaos. I think we need to stop being reactionary to the crypto-fascist bourgeois agenda - they won't listen (probably). If only for ourselves alone and our own sanity we just need to keep stating our stance.

Love over fear forever!
  6:51pm Matt from Springfield:

Um, just what is the caller's point again?
He needs to focus, or else tell him you gotta go.
  6:52pm kat330:

@Clay: I'm far behind most of your commenters in hearing your program(s) over these past few months of exploring FMU beyond 7SD, but so glad I caught you here and now. Thank you for your passion, and thank you for giving care as much as taking care.
  6:52pm sua:

damn. whiny activists turn my ears off.
  6:52pm Caryn:

@PG: yeah, the bulldozing of Lepakko was a day of misery. (The suspicious burning of the VR:n makasiinit was a pain too.) Lepakko-adjacently, Radio City started operations again. Don't know if it's any good anymore, though.
  6:53pm Rob:

Hey Clay, whoa alot of energy on todays show! Your speading vibes like some strange Tesla invention. Good work, Clay! Thanks!
  6:54pm Chico:

Divine world order, not new world order

that is all..
  6:55pm morr:

'whiny activists'? The young are full of energy and enthusiasm - it is our duty to nurture and encourage greater coherence and effectiveness.
  6:55pm frances:

@Morr: Well said! I'm an old Existentialist myself & found the same rebirth experience. Anarchists are my well loved and supported sisters & brothers. Keep spreading the word & being a positive force~!
  6:56pm Philo Gristle:

Probably not, though I take that as a good sign... Radio City was a huge deal when it started, the closest thing I had to WFMU back in mid-80s.
  6:56pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caller: FOCUS. Then do something about it. Even going to an Occupy event is a good start...
  6:56pm Marmalade kitty:

Great show Clay!
  6:56pm The Marmot:

  6:57pm kat330:

Good night good folk. Thanks again, Clay!
  6:58pm The Marmot:

cant believe its over already!
  6:58pm seang:

  6:58pm frances:

Always remember xoxo y'all!
  6:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Good night kat!
Terrific show, it's gone all over the place, and we're still back in time for dinner :)
  6:58pm Philo Gristle:

Late buzz... oops. Great show, Clay, your dedication is much appreciated.
  6:59pm Philo Gristle:

  6:59pm morr:

We all need to connect and to stay connected.
It is never over - it can be just beginning - it is up to us!
  6:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Take care everyone, I always enjoy chatting with you!

Thanks Clay! We are the 99%! Always remember!
  6:59pm Caryn:

Great 4 hours, Clay!

@Philo: I think nowadays the closest station to WFMU in Helsinki is Radio Helsinki. I believe they're freeform. Little Steven has a good show on it.
  7:02pm Philo Gristle:

Thanks Caryn! I dl their podcasts on occasion, plenty of Radio City people in the mix.
  7:05pm Caryn:

Yeah, I think they may be continuing the spirit of the original Radio City. No wonder they're considered the country's best radio station now, even if they have a very small listener base.
  10:19am seang:

You're the best, Clay!!
