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!

The Ball ... a Story by Clay Pigeon
Wrapping It Up with Fabio
A Call from Andy (and he's late!)
  Thanks for listening to this show, I hope you enjoyed it. As happens sometimes, I really didn't have a cohesive program prepared, so I had to kind of cobble together some interviews, music and what-not into 60-minutes of something. I did enjoy working in the digital format for the first 19-minutes of the show. It's very time-consuming, but I do like it and hope to do more in the future when I can. The possibilites are endless. I also have to say that I was THRILLED to meet Paul Williams and to interview him. What a tremendous talent, and I am so pleased that he is doing well again and is featured in the new Stephen Kessler doc ... Paul Williams Still Alive, which I HIGHLY urge you to check out. Also, thanks to those who have been supportive when I read stories on the air that I have written. Sometimes I feel very indulgent doing that, but your encouragement tells me you enjoy it, so I will continue to do it now and then. I have more playlists to catch up on, so I'll go now. Thanks again for your loyalty, interest and support. Write me when you can -


Until next time, take care and ... always remember!

Clay Pigeon

Huge Hello Clay! Been looking forward to this all day!

Is that correct?

Dan, Frances ... hello!
  6:08pm Philo Gristle:

Wasn't that Poseidon? Much better movie than Titanic!

Checking in...

Interviews interesting and a really brilliant music mix
  6:16pm kat330:

OK, seated now and outta the kitchen. Hi, Clay and all!
Avatar 6:18pm Clay:

Glad y'all are listening. I'm busy planning.
  6:19pm sfrances:

Clay: I have a sincere issue that I'd love you (& listeners if inclined) to weigh in on...I've been contracting as a temp employee for a major bank/corporation for the past 18 months. I'm paid well above the minimum wage per hour for 40 hours/week even though I usually have only 5-20 hours of work per week. I work from home most of the time:so I'm getting paid to do laundry, garden, & to work on my art/photography. I have a long history of protest, activisim,and most of my consumer $ goes to the used/black market. When I hear others complain about gov't wasteful spending: I use my own examples of corporate waste. So how much bad karma am I earning to play Robin Hood as an employee? I'm genuinely curious about your perspective, you know how down I am with OWS.
  6:20pm dale:

part two of the TNT! (is it thrusday night triad?) friend interviewed shelley winters back in the 80s at her home - shelley had her bathrobe open the whole time and naked to the wind underneath.
  6:21pm sfrances:

@dale: swoon, i love shelley winters.
  6:21pm kat330:

Planning, Clay? Running for NYC mayor? President?
Avatar 6:23pm Clay:

For my life!
  6:24pm Ralphine:

I thought I heard Ebony Eyes.
  6:24pm kat330:

@sfrances: I sort of weighed in on your situation from a "who's a more dedicated/sacrificing FMU listener" perspective: The listener who's doing it on the corporate dime -- and usually ONLY while at work -- or the listener who's tuned in only on his/her precious leisure time, or even instead of freelance earnings from the home.
  6:25pm dale:

do i hear the patter of little feet in the pigeon coop?
  6:25pm kat330:

Family planning then? :)
Avatar 6:28pm Clay:

2 cats. Romulus and Remus. Black cats.
  6:28pm Philo Gristle:

@sfrances: I always appreciated what John Cassavates did. He acted in some crappy movies to be able to do what he wanted and needed to do. And he created great art that moved people intellectually and emotionally.
  6:28pm sfrances:

@kat330: well from that perspective, 90% of my WFMU listening time is done during my precious leisure time. and yes, I donate to WFMU as well as a couple of non-WFMU podcasts...the bulk of my income goes towards non-corporate/mainstream spending...
  6:31pm kat330:

Well, sfrances, I don't think you should be karma concerned at all. Everyone's doing a dance of what's best for the environment, what's best for society, and what's best for oneself. Being conscientious is the primary thing, and clearly you are that.
  6:31pm sfrances:

@Philo: that's also the Steve Albini method of being a record producer. ;) He'd charge rich bands loads of $ for his services so that would underwrite him working cheap for poorer/more indie bands.
  6:33pm sfrances:

@Clay : nice flow to your rhymes, MC!
  6:34pm kat330:

@Clay: Seems it's always the FMU cat owners I'm drawn to (without knowing that fact first). :)
  6:35pm dale:

i freelanced at an agency and they had me doing nothing for months. supervisor kept saying it was easier to keep paying me than to let me go and try to rehire me at a later point. nuts!
  6:35pm Phillip in San Antonio:

Excellent playing Sigue Sigue!
  6:36pm Philo Gristle:

That's what I do with my freelance design work. Pay what you can, and if you're filthy rich, I expect more. But since I don't know their wealth, I sometimes suspect the rich are the stingiest...
  6:36pm sfrances:

@Clay: ooooooooh!! I'm so jealous you got to see the Paul Williams doc & talked to him!!!!!!
  6:37pm Philo Gristle:

Paul Williams, a.k.a. Swan.
  6:37pm dale:

LOVE paul williams! even phantom of the paradise...
Avatar 6:37pm Clay:

I am flailing today. I tried to go didge and got behind. Only 20-minutes worth. I enjoyed doing it, though. Now I am fitting odd-pieces together. Thanks for listening. I'm reading your comments. ! :>)
Avatar 6:38pm Clay:

Frances .. it was a great moment for me.
  6:38pm Night Al:

I remember Paul Williams appearing on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. He was wearing full Planet Of The Apes regalia.
Avatar 6:39pm Clay:

He talks about that in the film, Dale. I hope you guys see it.
  6:39pm dale:

look for paul as a little teenager in tony richardson's 'the loved one'
  6:39pm Philo Gristle:

ESPECIALLY Phantom. Pertinent to the corporate sell-out discussion too. "Faust" to "Upholstery." Brilliant.
  6:41pm sfrances:

@Clay: you deserve such moments w/Williams & so much more. thank you for bringing us with you! btw: Hulu has Joan Rivers' "That Show" from the 60s. She's another hero of mine.
Avatar 6:41pm Clay:

Dale, he was 24 when he did that movie.
  6:42pm Fredericks:

Three Dog Night. One of my earliest music purchases.
  6:44pm dale:

wow - he looked 15!
  6:47pm dale:

clay, look for an author named t.r. pearson, specifically a novel called 'a short history of a small place' it's your brand of storytelling
  6:48pm Night Al:

Did you know that Paul William's brother Mentor Williams, a successful songwriter in his own right, wrote Dobie Gray's 1973 hit, "Drift Away."
  6:52pm Philo Gristle:

Motherblankers? Melonfarmers.
  6:53pm dc pat:

Jeezus! Amazing Clay!!!

This is one of my favorite tales you've ever told!!!

Always remember & peace & love to y'all ,thanks for another great episode, Clay! You remain a weekly highlight!
  6:56pm other david:

Thanks for doing what you do so well Clay, catch you next week!
  6:56pm sfrances:

ps: i'm an ex southern baptist now atheist & love your tales
  6:56pm northguineahills:

this is good fan cleaning listening.....
  6:57pm Philo Gristle:

@ngh: did the sh*t hit it?
  6:58pm kat330:

Thank you so much, Clay! Philo & I won't be here next week, but we'll catch it in the archives.

  7:01pm sfrances:

exciting! evening people!
  7:01pm kat330:

Must have received 3 dozen emails asking to join them at Sarah's for dinner tonight.
  7:03pm Dan B From Upstate:

Clay People!
  7:04pm kat330:

Clay, where are you from originally? And your story was awesome, btw!
  7:05pm other david:

extended Clay & Fabio :)
  7:06pm kat330:

Extended Clay & Fabio, this is great!
Is Fabio all shimmery, sparkling?
  7:06pm kat330:

OMG, OD?!?! That's a true synch! :)
  7:07pm Dan B From Upstate:

I love that Clay and Sandy refer to each other by their real names.
  7:08pm other david:

haha! great minds and fools, kat :)

Someone needs to take that damn box off Clay, compile & release on vinyl!
  7:09pm Fredericks:

Clay, compile your writings auditorially.
  7:09pm Dan B From Upstate:

Have humans ever tried to expand peacefully? If the aliens come, they come to kill.
  7:10pm dale:

them body snatchers were just redshirts!
  7:10pm Philo Gristle:

I'm all for the Cryptoterrestrials.
  7:11pm kat330:

Yeah, Clay, you can read them into SoundCloud tracks. I plan to read my original limericks and such to upload there.
  7:11pm sfrances:

We had duck & cover drills in Springfield,VA in the 60s (just outside of Washington,DC Ground Zero)
  7:11pm other david:

Well.. I think if you have the means to travel across the universe at reasonable speed.. you have access to amazing power, and if you manage not to blow yourself up with that power, then.. perhaps, maybe you're peaceful
  7:12pm Dan B From Upstate:

I'm still waiting for a fabio/clay/night people five hours of power mashup.
  7:13pm dale:

loved chariots of the god - lines of nasca, ezekiels wheel..
  7:13pm Philo Gristle:

"Mystery is the essential element in every piece of art." - Luis Bunuel
  7:13pm kat330:

I think they've debunked all the crop circles. But there still are stranger things under the sun than science (at this point) can explain.
  7:13pm Dan B From Upstate:

Really good point, other david, but I'd have to be a pessimist and guess that the only thing that will ever cause humanity to look elsewhere is a lack of or complete exhaustion of resources. I'm thinking aliens wouldn't leave for the same reason.
  7:13pm seang:

we are aliens
  7:14pm kat330:

@seang: I think the living things sharing our planet with us would believe so.
  7:16pm sfrances:

did a book report in elementary school on Chariots of the Gods. Was obsessed in the early 70s with UFO, Salem Witch Trials, and Freaks...
  7:16pm other david:

I think by the time we'd actually get our butts in gear and decide it's time to leave, it would be too late. At least based on looking at how we react to threats facing us now.

I believe there's probably alien life, that it's possible they have been here at some point.. but honestly, ufologists are.. prone to believe all nonsense and there just is no evidence that they've been here. Some interesting cases... but.... nothing that would stand up to rigorous scientific enquiry.

Also this caller.. eh..
  7:17pm Fredericks:

Sounds like stress-induced alienizations.
  7:17pm sfrances:

  7:18pm other david:

caller wins :D
  7:18pm dale:

clay, a friend between roxbury and grand gorge swears his wife was abducted and he was awake and aware but rendered immobile by them swear on my grave.
  7:19pm Ralphine:

A friend of mine said he saw alien spaceships more than once, but he was always drunk or stoned when he did.
  7:19pm dale:

sfrances, abc movie of the week fed that genre pretty non-stop
  7:19pm b:

No intelligent life on other planets. Too many factors involved in making Earth habitable to believe any other planet could be. Odds in the trillions, can't believe.
  7:19pm kat330:

OD, I'm also pessimistic in that way. Too many delusional people out there believing a) they'll be raptured soon anyway or b) even if no rapture, then somebody at some time will come up with some way to save us all, so let's just continue consuming at the current rate. Heads in the sand is an understatement.
  7:20pm sfrances:

@dale: when abc was king...
  7:21pm northguineahills:

Wow, Clay and Fabio doing their best Art Bell Coast to Coast AM radio!!!
  7:22pm Philo Gristle:

A lot of rational people observe unexplained phenomena in the skies and on the ground. Doesn't mean it's aliens, doesn't mean it's ghosts, doesn't mean it's the government. I suspect anyone who claims to have answers.
  7:23pm Dan B From Upstate:

Clay and Fabio should use Giorgio Moroder's "The Chase" as bed music.
  7:23pm other david:

I almost want to call...
  7:24pm Dan B From Upstate:

The fade! That's a Sandy move!
  7:27pm kat330:

OK, g'night part deux everyone! Take and give care.
  7:27pm other david:

G'night kat, nice talking to you as always
