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 episode of The Dusty Show. I appreciate your interest in the program and invite you to listen again! If you'd like to contact me, it's easy ... just email - dusty@wfmu.org. I'd love to hear from you.

I have continued to follow Occupy Wall Street through its ups and downs over the past few months. Lately, I have been trying to mix my coverage with music and other topics of interest. It must seem haphazard at times, or unrelated. I'm not sure what to say about that. Dusty is sometimes an animal that creates itself as I go. I hope you'll continue to tune in and I'll keep trying to make it worth your while. Until next time .... take care and ... always remember.

Wow, song-poem! I thought that sounded incorrect! I would LOVE to find a song-poem record of my own!

Hi Caryn! Rob!
(I was about to SAY, Clay! I'm no Republican nominee! :)
  6:05pm david:

wow, they seemingly "hophophopped" right to Clay's background music! brilliant
Avatar 6:07pm Clay:

I usually find them accidentally, Matt. Great World of Sound is a good song/poem label. Good movie, too.
  6:07pm other david:

checking in!
Avatar 6:07pm Clay:

O.D. right on time!
  6:09pm rob:

nice background, funky
  6:09pm Jim:

That snippet of Jon Anderson reminds me that my favorite Donna Summer song is a cover of Anderson's and Vangelis's "State of Independence," produced by Quncy Jones. Such a great song.

"Political process"? At this point I want to ask: what's that?

So true, Matt.

Everything was all right when the EMTs arrived.

Hi OD! Hi Fredericks with his mightier-than-the-sword ballpoint pen!

My 'levels' are terrible on this show.
  6:16pm rob:

it is a little hectic.
  6:16pm other david:

We have a big referendum at the end of this month on an EU financial treaty - both sides.. both sides are resorting to one liners, empty promises, scare mongering.

And it appears to work for the majority of people.

But that level of debate just makes me want to leave the country.

But I think it's reflective of politics in most nations and blah. I don't see a way for things to get better. No room for pragmatism & honesty, only expediency & propaganda on all sides.
Avatar 6:17pm Clay:

Interesting, David. Thanks.
  6:20pm Fredericks:

Johnny Mac lacks the emotional element I find in Tommy Bolin's similar work.
  6:22pm Matt from Springfield:

@OD: Didn't Ireland just have a national election? Who's currently in Government?
And what does the financial treaty come down to?
  6:22pm other david:

Clay - have you seen any/many extreme left leaning folks, swing to the other extreme as they got older?
Avatar 6:23pm Clay:

Sure David ... plenty.
  6:26pm kat330:

Wasn't "W" a businessman? I think we saw what would happen. Oh, hi, Clay, and all! [been lurking intermittent to making dinner]
  6:27pm Matt from Springfield:

@OD: Political spectrum isn't a line, it's a circle. The Nazis and Communists were arch-villains to each other, even though the end results in the countries they controlled were remarkably similar.
  6:27pm rob:

AHHH robot voice
  6:27pm other david:

@Matt: last year, and the treaty - well you'll get different answers, but as I see it: we get access to nicer EU borrowing, in return for the EU having the right to slap us for running deficits - sort of like a parent overseeing a kids saving account.

But the debate is being framed as: if we reject it, we're doomed - no-one will lend us money / everything will be better!

If we accept, we'll all have jobs! / If we accept we'll surrender our last vestage of independence!
  6:28pm Caryn:

I felt pretty good during our presidential election campaigns, because it was all very civilized and reasonable debate about issues (although sometimes annoyingly about issues that the president has nothing to do with). But it was pleasantly decent and factual. After the elections, though, it's all hyperbole and business as usual, disappointingly.
  6:30pm kat330:

Avatar 6:31pm Clay:

Ken's been in here reminiscing about Grin.
  6:31pm dpcd:

Forget Jon Anderson for a minute. John B. Anderson was a candidate in 1980 who broke ranks with the GOP and ran as Independent. He did what Dr Paul apparently will not. Take real risks. I was inspired back then, as it was my first as a voter, and I took his petition around, the whole thing. Now I think Vermin Supreme is as good as any...
Avatar 6:31pm Clay:

Hi Kat!!!!!! Good 2cu!
Avatar 6:32pm Clay:

Interesting, DPCD.
  6:32pm Matt from Springfield:

An Occupy St. Simon's Island would be something! If the older genteel retirees and tourists got involved..!

Hi kat! What's for dinner? :)
  6:32pm other david:

Caryn - I am deeply envious of the Nordic nations :)

My personal take is that our debt is unsustainable - a government official apparently acknowledged that, and said we'll have to seek a 50% write down on our debt in 4 years time - but that's not being debated publicly. Blah rabble rabble!

@Matt: I have come to the opinion that a large number of politicians are borderline sociopaths. They will... wave any flag, so long as it seems to promise personal advancement into the circles of power.

Sorry I'm ranty, I heart this show.

Hi Kat!
Avatar 6:33pm Clay:

Rant on Caryn. You have the brain-power!
  6:33pm kat330:

I made a comment about the dude who said he'd like to see Romney, as a businessman, just for the textbook curiosity how that would turn out. And I said, wasn't "W" a businessman? [I need a mic check here :) ]
  6:34pm Matt from Springfield:

"Sociopaths" is putting it nicely!
@Caryn: At least with the Scandinavian populace they have to be civil and reasoned to win voter support.
  6:34pm kat330:

I throw out a serious topic, and I get back "what's for dinner?"Matt? :) If you must know, it's a beautifully nutty and flavored brown rice with an oriental braised chicken thigh. For one.....sigh....
  6:36pm kat330:

Hi,back OD! [the Only David, AFAIK :)]
  6:38pm Matt from Springfield:

It's true--in Malaysia! Yes!
Too bad neocon war criminals probably weren't planning to go there anyway...
  6:38pm Ralphine:

Man, I've never heard Leon Redbone sound like that before.
  6:39pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: Sounds delish, even for one.

"But when he's gone / Me and them lonesome blues collide
The bed's too big / The frying pan's too wide"
  6:41pm kat330:

AHHHH! You are a GENuine something-or-other Mr. Matt! Love it! Just so happens "My Old Man" is yet another Joni that's in my repertoire. :>
  6:42pm too much coffee:

hey dusty... ever do any shows focusing on interviews just with sailors / marines in town for fleet week? it's coming up again may 23-30 and it's be great to hear what you can come up with
  6:42pm dale:

digging the thrift-y sounds of scratchy vinyl clay! cheers!
  6:43pm too much coffee:

I always make a point of buttonholing military personnel whenever a (tactful) moment presents itself. "So do you think we're accomplishing anything in Afghanistan at the moment?", questions like that. the answers are often quite, umm, illuminating.
  6:43pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: The Yiddish word would be "mensch"--I'd be honored to be a mensch! :)
  6:44pm kat330:

@dale: Me, too, and sometimes the intros are passing me by. Clay, do you put out your music playlists for your shows?
Avatar 6:44pm Clay:

Been talking with Ken.
  6:44pm Caryn:

@Matt: oh, I wouldn't say the "civil and reasoned" thing necessarily anymore. One of the biggest parties here is a populist right-wing party, whose members are in the news on a regular basis with preposterous statements e.g. saying that "foreigners, fags and foreign-language speakers should wear identifying armbands" or "be shipped to an island away from normal people" or cheering on a lunatic shooter, because his victims happened to be immigrants. Fortunately, there has also been a counter-reaction to these guys, of which the presidential election was a fine example.
@od: Last week, the Helsinki city council decided to proactively try to prevent OWS from spreading here by banning all groups from erecting tents or stands of any kinds in public spaces. Of course the morons forgot that this is not only an asinine move towards OWS, but also prevents e.g. the scout jamborees from setting up tents and stands, political parties from setting up stands during election campaigns, and charities from setting up stands to feed the homeless.
  6:45pm dpcd:

@other david/Matt:
of course, it is all explained in "Hugh's Hierarchy"- perhaps you've seen it?
Sociopaths run everything. Beneath them, the Clueless. At the bottom (and the happiest)
are the Losers. Lets all aspire to be losers!
  6:45pm Matt from Springfield:

In case anyone hasn't seen it, this video has been making the rounds here at WFMU. Irwin said Liz Berg sent out links to this video, an early 90s TV commercial for a "not available in stores!" CD called "Punk"--when it's not punk at all!

  6:45pm kat330:

That you are absolutely, Matt! Matt the Mensch! Although he doesn't really fit the description, I was looking at Clay's Artist column to the left and thought Cur-lay Pi-mudgeon would be fun.
Avatar 6:46pm Clay:

I will read all your comments later.
  6:47pm dale:

ooh, i think this raven album is worth hundreds. HUNDREDS, i tell you!
  6:47pm Matt from Springfield:

I post that here because Clay probably would like the music on the CD. Then I realized--they probably didn't mean the punk genre; it's probably an abbreviation for: "Pigeon's Ultimate Newwave Kit"! :)

Then again, we know Clay didn't compile this, because there's no Missing Persons!
  6:48pm Ralphine:

Way to stump that dude with the physicist question.
Avatar 6:48pm Clay:

It was, Dale ... before I UNSEALED it!
  6:48pm Matt from Springfield:

@DPCD: See the happy Loser, he doesn't give a damn.
I wish I were a Loser, my God, perhaps I am!
Avatar 6:49pm Clay:

TY Ralphine. Glad to see your name.
  6:49pm kat330:

@Caryn: Still all in all, Finland is more reasoned than politics for US.
  6:49pm Raven:

I have a vision of big hair lotsa lights and 80s baby
  6:49pm other david:

@Matt: you are most certainly a mensch, a thorougly good bloke :)

@Caryn: I feel that within the next 10 years, there's going to be a fundamental reorganising of our how our societies function - whether that will be for the good or bad, I'm not sure, but at this point I'm leaning towards the latter - it wont end there of course, things will go back and forth, but in my lifetime... I only see the further erosion of civil liberties/rights

@dpcd - Sir, I am a Fundamentalist Loser!
  6:49pm Matt from Springfield:

@Clay: Eh, you can unseal it. I figuratively "ran into Studio A screaming" when you mentioning a sealed Badfinger album--because those actually can be extremely valuable!
  6:50pm Caryn:

@kat: well, certainly in the past few months it has seemed like that.
Avatar 6:51pm Clay:

I have sealed Magic Christian and Ass LP's from Badfinger I won't open ...
  6:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow! Sealed "Ass" album! Their last Apple album too apparently! That's a treas.
  6:53pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

Sealed LPs are hard to listen to. :)
Avatar 6:54pm Clay:

I guess Andy'll be along soon. Not my best episode. I will persevere. Take care everyone. Always remember. CP99
Avatar 6:54pm Clay:

True, Dave.
  6:54pm Matt from Springfield:

@Seattle Dave: He should invite us all to telepathically meditate on a sealed LP, see if we can listen in our minds... :)
  6:54pm kat330:

I saw a hopeful explanation about the US lunacy of late within an interview with Bill Maher. He suggests the far right/tea party folks are going back to old, presumably resolved issues -- like contraception -- because they realize their numbers are thinning. They're running scared. Gee, I can only hope he's right about the far right.
  6:55pm david:

*sigh* "I agree with it but not they way they're going about it" so I'll stay on the sidelines and do nothing instead.
  6:55pm other david:

Clay - stopit! Your shows are always necessary & excellent listening, thank you for doing what you do.
  6:55pm Matt from Springfield:

@Clay: More than acceptable, more than good, this episode was enjoyable!
That's a success for sure.
  6:55pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

Seems like a waste to not listen to them. I will admit I have a few sealed LPs.
  6:55pm Caryn:

Hopefully I'll stay awake to listen to Night People. So tired this week...
Avatar 6:56pm Clay:

Need to play more 80's, 90's, 00's, 10's
  6:57pm kat330:

Clay, the show got me out of lurk mode, so it was quite fine! Thanks and g'night good people!
  6:57pm rob:

good bye all! thanks Clay! No dont go beyond 80s
  6:58pm other david:

Play what *you* like, that's what WFMU is about :)

Thanks for the conversation folks

G'night Kat
  6:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Find some good mash-ups to play, one of the best innovations of recent music--and you can even find new mash-ups of older music too.

Take care, "Isle of View Clay" (say it fast!) :)
"Isle of View" commenters and listeners as well! Have a great night everyone!
  6:58pm Caryn:

See you next week, Clay! It was lovely once again.
  6:58pm kat330:

[I'd be fine to say don't go beyond 70s, but that will be my little secret.]
  6:59pm rob:

nice closing!
  6:59pm dpcd:

The saddest group are the Clueless managers. They think if they work hard and sacrifice they will get to join the club at the top. Maybe this was true before but it sure as hell isn't now.
Send those kids to private kindergarten, pay a big mortgage, buy health insurance, expect a pension- you must borrow to keep on the treadmill, and you will find out too late how misguided those aspirations are.
The club is small and only a few super aggressive can marry or otherwise enter.
  7:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Good point, dpcd.
