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!

Options May 24, 2012: Live Flea Market FInd Analysis With Fabio --- Occupy Update -- All Ears!

Listen to this show:  Pop‑up player!

Artist Track Album Label Year Format Comments Approx. start time
Opening Banter
Weaker Than Usual
  I know my lack of enthusiasm for The Stooges distanced some. It's really more about a lack of exposure to the music. There is never enough time in life to immerse myself in everything I should. I tend to READ more about bands than actually HEARING them. My knowledge of Iggy is more centered on his solo career than with The Stooges. I'm sorry. Respect them. Of course! Perhaps I'll have the chance to immerse in the near future, I hope so. I dig the THOUGHT of their aesthetic. Low-budge. Defiant.

Fabio Hates It
  I'm guessing 2 people will ever read this. And that may be a generous estimate. Still, I feel compelled to air out some things I was thinking about this episode at this point of the broadcast.

You know what. Here's an experiment. If you actually read this ... email me. You don't have to say anything. Just say ... I READ IT CLAY. I bet no one emails.


Anyway ... as the 'due-date' for this show drew near, I have to say I was having a really terrible week. I'm sure you've had them. A lot of things seemed to be going wrong and my mood and overall demeanor were in the dumps. As I recall (I am doing this playlist 2-weeks after this show aired) I had no time to produce a proper episode, and the records I had gathered together, frankly, kind of sucked, as you're hearing so far. That being said, I give myself credit for sticking to my recent formula of making shows around random flea market acquisitions whether they suck or not. In this instance, they just aren't that strong. Let me tell you (who am I talking to? No one is reading this ... no one) it is not easy on WFMU to play random music that might suck, because FMU listeners are discerning and informed. I consider myself to actually have decent musical tastes. I could play it safe and give you good stuff every week from my collection. But it's too easy. No challenge. No risk. Boring. So here you go. 45's from 75-77 that 3/4 stink.

Begging for Calls
Caller #1
Kongas  Tatoo Woman   Options   Polydor  1977  45  Produced by Cerrone. I should have played the flip. The more popular track. A cover of Gimme Some Lovin'. I don't like that song, though. Never have. I think the problem with this episode is that my instincts betrayed me, or, I betrayed them! I just wasn't feeling it. Again, I think real life crept into the studio with me on the day this show aired. I try to keep it at bay, but it isn't always possible.   
Frank Zappa  Disco Boy   Options   Warner Bros  1976  45  I played this years ago on WOKF in Clearwater, FL, when I was a disco jock in the disco era. I was like, 20 years old. It offended.   
Fabio Phones It In

  Well ... there she blows. Another show in the can. Not my best, maybe not my worst. The weeks fly by like briliant tanagers and indigo buntings on their way to happier feeding grounds. And I, in my analog hovel, poorly ventilated and clammy, toil endlessly, wrangling umpteen interviews of various quality and a Biz-Bag™ of sundry vinyl into some type of lump-shape for your consumption. I hinted earlier at a slump and yes, I am there. Weird how it works. I guess Frank knew. A puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king. Ridin' high in April ... shot down in May. However, I shall perservere, Of course I will. And things will work out for all of us, just as they should. As the fates allow.

I am very glad you have listened and read all this mumbo. I do appreciate it. I hope I haven't lost you with incessant Occupy coverage or a change in tone to a more downcast vibe. I do so long to be silly and frivolous. But, each week I find myself drawn once again into the fray, and I elect to wade into it, looking for inspiration, stories, hope, and love. Thank you for your continued, interest, loyalty, and support. It means a lot to me. I guess you know that by now. I hope you have a great week ahead and that you'll tune in again when you can. Peace and love to you and yours. Until next time, take care and ...

always remember ...

Bouncing 'round the rooms here. Matt the Mensch here?

Hi, Clay!
  6:37pm Phillip in San Antonio:

It stinks how many books they throw away at a Goodwill distribution center near me.
  6:37pm Matt from Springfield:

Hello Clay!
Kat the Konsiderate! Matt the Mensch is in!
  6:37pm sfrances:

Disturbing, but not surprising: http://www.businessinsider.com/the-us-government-is-running-a-massive-spying-campaign-on-the-occupy-movement-2012-5
  6:37pm Philo Gristle:

@Caryn A show about individuality, struggle against fascism and societal imprisonment... sounds right up Clay's alley!
Avatar 6:37pm Clay:

Hi Kat. Matt. The Hat. Philmo!
  6:38pm Caryn:

Funnily enough, found out just a few days ago that there's been an OWS protest going on in Helsinki all through the winter. No wonder I'd missed it, because there has been nothing in the media, and it has been only 10-30 people camping out.
  6:38pm Ralphine:

Does anybody think that Betty White show where the old people play practical jokes is funny at all? I sure don't.
  6:38pm kat330:

@Matt: I hope your tomatoes are bright red, and your poison ivy isn't! :)
  6:39pm Caryn:

@PG: damn straight! "Checkmate" is one of the best episodes, too!
  6:39pm Matt from Springfield:

In fact so many of our commenters are quite nice.
Have I mentioned my suggestion of calling Dusty fans, instead of the literati, or glitterati, we should be the Considerati!
  6:39pm Phillip in San Antonio:

Clay! I'm surprised you haven't hit up the Fukushima stories lately.
  6:41pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: Already feelin' better! Though for the tomatoes, wait till August-September! :)

Trying to keep up Phil. This week was hectic.
Avatar 6:42pm Clay:

Hey Dale and life-partner. Appreciate your listening.
  6:42pm kat330:

Clay, you were surprised by the temps Greg in VA mentioned. We're at 90 and sunny here in the Ohio Valley, and will be all Mem. weekend. Too hot too early.
  6:42pm sfrances:

Her point of the casualty ratio now & basically it's the living dead coming home, is really spot on. I'm really enjoying this particular conversation...
  6:42pm Phillip in San Antonio:

Have you checked naturalnews.com?
Avatar 6:42pm Clay:

Frances, back from Paris?
  6:43pm Matt from Springfield:

The Warrior Transition Program ("Wounded Warriors") is very comprehensive for those transitioning from military to civilian, there are some programs that serve the "bridge" she spoke of. Unfortunately if you're not physically WIA, and mentally destroyed instead, we still fail to provide adequate assistance for these Veterans.
Avatar 6:45pm Clay:

I like hot weather, Katt. 100+ Bring it on!
  6:45pm dale:

always a comdian
Avatar 6:45pm Clay:

  6:45pm sfrances:

Clay: Oui! I would've phoned in earlier, but wicked asthma right now. Didn't see any OWS spots in Paris, but did get a great personal tour of the Belleville neighborhood by a friend that lives there: lots of communist, resistance, immigration history there.
Great trip, but wonderful to be home too.
  6:46pm Matt from Springfield:

Alright Hannah! Like Frances, I thank you Clay for this interview. Really important and many different problems articulated well.
Avatar 6:46pm Clay:

Wife and I are going in October, Frances. Dusty in PAris episode to come, maybe.
Avatar 6:46pm Clay:

TY Hat!
  6:47pm Matt from Springfield:

Ooooh! Clay in faux-French accent, as we discussed back at the Marathon! ;)
Avatar 6:48pm Clay:

wee wee
  6:49pm sfrances:

Oh I'm so happy for you and the Mrs!! Don't be freaked out by seeing armed military with full AK47s walking around. I was. But lots of great street art too. Slowly working through all of my photos. I have 2 friends there: one American, one Parisian: so I had a great personal element to my otherwise solo trip as well.
  6:49pm Matt from Springfield:

@Clay 6:43: I much prefer to be a little too cold than a little too hot. There's always saunas/steam rooms if you want temps like that!
  6:50pm Matt from Springfield:

@frances: First time in Paris, or have you been there before?
  6:50pm sfrances:

PS: I really hope the Black Block doesn't F' up with OWS. I'm surprised they were as quiet as they were for as long as they were: but I've seen them create unwanted aggression (themselves, and via the cops responding to them) when I was in Portland,OR demos...
  6:51pm sfrances:

@Matt: was there 9 years ago for 3 weeks, with a bf that I'd just broken up with. hooray! This time it was 2 weeks: solo. I missed my husband, but the trip was one of the best things I've done for myself ever.
  6:51pm kat330:

Yes, I concur an important pop. segment to hear from. When we made our Mouse donation to FMU in Dec., also donated to the Fisher House Foundation. My dad was a Marine.
  6:52pm sfrances:

@Clay: Perfect background music during this piece with the Marine.
  6:53pm Caryn:

@Matt: yeah, and considering the number of veterans who say that you are asked when your tour is coming to an end whether you think you have PTSD or other battle-caused psychological problems, and if you answer yes, they keep you in Iraq or Afganistan for another tour, it is clear the military is not only not providing mentally-wounded soldiers with adequate aid, but is actually trying to avoid dealing with the problem at all.
  6:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Whoa, old school Dusty voices and comic pieces!
  6:54pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: Wonderful. I also give to Fisher House.
Welcome Back Veterans is another great charity.
