  Thanks for listening to this episode of The Dusty Show. Prior to air-time, I was going to simply play a 52-minute recorded version of '20,000 Leagues Under The Sea" because I was feeling poorly. But, attention-hogg that I can be, I decided to giev it a go with Fabio in tow and see what we could come up with for an hour. I do notice that listener comments were scant for this show compared to normal, indicating the show was kind of a dud, and I would concur, no offense to callers, whom are always appreciated. If I'm going to be honest, I'd have to say that I have dropped the ball in the last couple of weeks, since scaling back my Occupy Coverage. I admit to having been very busy with life and feeling the need to recharge batteries to a degree. Hard to explain, but I do feel a kind of guilt that I have shortchanged you a little, and for that I apologize. Hopefully I'll be able to ramp it up as the coming weeks unfold, although, with Summer, I do like to experiment a little, relax a little, tell some stories, etc. I hope you'll stay with me and see where it leads. As for Duel In The Dirt, have I read it before? Maybe. I didn't think I had, but my wife thought I did. I read THIS version just prior to broadcast and enjoyed it. ideally, I'd liked to have put background music and sound FX with it, but it didn't work out that way. I should mention that story is inspired by the dirt track racing days of my youth. My family would often attend dirt track races on weekends, rooting for our favorite, The Flying Farmer, Lloyd Jorgensen of Audubon, Iowa. I'm sure he is the inspiration for Hod Blankenship. And as for Dickie Deems, he is the written embodiment of a driver named Mike Chapman of Whiting, Iowa, who did drive a car with an "X" painted on the side. Those were fun times. The track is closed these days, overgrown with weeds. It's always remembered though ... on Dusty.

Clay P - NYC

First Day of Summer - 2012 Love to you all.

Listener comments!

  6:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Clay!
  6:04pm Cecile:

hey, clay!
  6:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Hooray, another story! I missed last weeks, so I get a radio drama LIVE!
  6:06pm Pixar:

You will hear from our attorneys.
  6:09pm dale:

hey clay. does that cyclone have a 390 and mercomatic tranny?
  6:10pm Ralphine:

I came in late. Does Blankenship drive a Ford, a Chevy, or a Toyota?
  6:11pm Juan Rapido:

weekend wally? i love it!
  6:12pm sfrances:

That rhyming scheme you just laid down in this tale really rocked with pedal to the metal~
Avatar 6:15pm ?:

Busy here, and dehydrated. Half-loopy. Fabs here. Ken is teaching a class. OK ... now we're back.
  6:15pm Cecile:

later, all!
  6:15pm Brett W. Thompson:

I really really loved this story about Blankenship
  6:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Nice story Clay. Less Twilight Zone this time, more like a narrative slice of Americana. Kind of like "Leiningen Versus the Ants" in a way. Brains prevailing over power.
  6:16pm david:

yet another great pidge oridge
  6:16pm seang:

long live FMU
  6:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Have a good night Cecile!
  6:16pm Carmichael:

Listening along, but my desk is on fire. Hitting the boozer in a few. Happy show!
  6:17pm Fredericks:

If feel as satisfied as a corn-fed heffer.
  6:17pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carm: Shouldn't you be putting out fires on your desk instead of typing about it online? Well, that's our digital future with social media, only gonna get worse...
  6:18pm sfrances:

Raising a pint of Williamsburg (VA, not Brooklyn) Alewerks in salute to Neil Diamond & Dusty!
  6:18pm Fredericks:

Good eating!
  6:20pm Alpha Centauri:

Fabio, more Scott Walker please!
  6:20pm Matt from Springfield:

Sounds great frances! Are you listening on an iPhone?
  6:20pm the glowing one:

tequila is a certain kind of mezcal
  6:21pm kata:

busy but listening ! howdy all !
  6:22pm northguineahills:

I loooooooooooveeeeeeeeeee mezcal. Too bad it's hard to find here unless you go to Astor Place Liquors. Although both tequila and mezcal both come from agave, the production is different.
  6:22pm sfrances:

@Matt: I have no iPhone, I'm not fancy! I'm listening on my desktop mac from home.

@Clay: I've phoned in a few times & don't want to wear out my tele-welcome
  6:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Brand new Scott Walker? Great news! I look forward to that.
  6:23pm northguineahills:

(i love to put mezcal in my maté)
  6:23pm david:

oaxaca aoxomoxoa
  6:24pm Matt from Springfield:

@frances: Ah, thought you were in Williamsburg at a place called Alewerks!
(I have some ice cold Widmers and Fordham brews waiting at home. On this HOT day!)
  6:24pm other david:

Checking in, havent been able to post much today, running around.

Missed last 30 mins of Fabio's show to listen in to the yearly BBC shortwave broadcast to the British Antarctic stations, which was a real throwback to a bygone age
  6:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Do Or D-U-S-T-Y with Pigeon Like Us!!! Phonestep!
Come on Clay, revitalize that "CanadaJazz" and make it into a beat!
  6:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi OD!
So, what's new in Antarctica right now? Beginning of Winter, at the southernmost part of the world.
  6:27pm david:

must sound like numbers stations or something, those antarctic broadcasts...
  6:27pm Phillip in San Antonio:

Clay! You should play Herb Albert's "Rise" in the background.
  6:28pm Phillip in San Antonio:

Hello Matt from Springfield
Avatar 6:28pm ?:

Hello you guys. Thanks for listening. Good to see your names up there. I've been really busy the past couple of weeks and haven't been able to fulfill my Dusty Show duties
  6:28pm Phillip in San Antonio:

Or this!
  6:28pm other david:

@Matt - apparently the 40 odd people in the British stations get this week off and party as best they can! The broadcast had was all of their families saying hello and stuff, was twee and cute, and no doubt a very welcome taste of home for them :)
  6:29pm Caryn:

Damn computer problems, I missed Clay's story! I guess the archives are calling again...
  6:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Hello Phillip in San Antonio!
I found your original question, which recommended seeing Neil Hamburger. He IS apparently on tour, and coming to Richmond VA in August! I'm going to try to get into that!
  6:31pm sfrances:

@ other david: cheers to you the in Antarctic, my husband has a cousin who is there on & off doing research

@Matt: Hot indeed. Lucky for me this Williamsburg Alewerks beer (Springhouse Ale to be specific) is available at my local organic market.
  6:32pm Carmichael:

One of the best Beach Boy songs ever (along with I Can Hear Music).

See you Clay/Fab.
  6:33pm Phillip in San Antonio:

I've seen him 5 times now and he never gets old. He has a great Tony Clifton feel.
  6:34pm dale:

caller, are you wearing slacks or trousers?
  6:34pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: I've been having Flash streaming issues at work, though my 128k is doing fairly well right now.

Beach Boys is "Girl Don't Tell Me", from '65. There's a whole bunch of great BBs songs from right before Pet Sounds, and perhaps they don't get the exposure they should. "Let Him Run Wild" is another I recently stumbled on that I really like.
  6:34pm Phillip in San Antonio:

I'm pretty sure Andy Kaufman was an influence.
  6:35pm sfrances:

Dusty: You Iowans! My Ackley husband also likes the extreme heat & exreme cold to be reminded he's alive. Me, I'll pass on the record setting climate change effects...

@Matt: Ooooh, Todd Barry is also on the bill w/Neil. I liked Neil better before the hipsters were in the fix. He's funnier to me when the audience *doesn't* get it and there's so much room to roll in those awkward long pauses.
  6:36pm Ralphine:

Did anybody see the Dukes of September Revue on Jimmy Fallon's show not too long ago? They did a decent cover of the Brothers Johnson.
  6:36pm Dave in PA:

Ed Leedskalnin
  6:37pm Caryn:

@Matt: my flash stream is fine, but my browser has crashed 4-5 times today, and the net is incredibly slow. It can take half an hour for a page to load.
  6:39pm Some Flash Guy:

The new flash stream has been clipping after streaming for an hour or so and regroups after a refresh...
  6:40pm Phillip in San Antonio:

I really wish my parents never sold my old pulp comics from the 40's. I remember a really lame Bob Hope comic that was a part of that lot.
  6:40pm Matt from Springfield:

Ha ha! I was JUST about to type Jimmy Olson, Fabio!
I only learned of that series through the Superdickery website, "Superman Is A Dick":
  6:41pm marc:

Coral castle ... created by Edward Leedskalnin near Naples.
  6:42pm dale:

i like sad sack.
  6:43pm david:

OWS ain't dispersed, Fabio, just not covered by media like it was in the beginning...
  6:44pm Rubin:

"Yippie versus Yuppie."
  6:46pm Matt from Springfield:

Recovene, Julie!
(Hope she's not asleep, now that her show is on earlier Thursday!)
  6:46pm Descartes:

Clay? Why is this show called the Dusty Show? Isnt it the Clay Pigeon Show?
  6:47pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, Clay plays Upside-Down Bat music! :)
  6:47pm the glowing one:

awww, morrissey...
  6:47pm seang:

Def Leppard
  6:48pm Caryn:

Woo, The Smiths!
  6:48pm Matt from Springfield:

Phone off the hook!!
  6:49pm sfrances:

The Smiths have never sounded better than with a hung up phone dial tone in the background.
  6:49pm Descartes:

I thought this was Lou Reed's sister, instead of Morrissey
  6:50pm Caryn:

Now I feel nostalgic for my university years, much of which were spent in lectures and seminars about The Smiths.
  6:50pm Matt from Springfield:

@frances: That did add an, *interesting* touch to it! :)
  6:50pm Morrissey:

I touched Clay!
  6:52pm Matt from Springfield:

Hand In Glove!...
  6:52pm Morrissey:

Tewks rocks!
  6:53pm marc:

Bob tewksberry
  6:53pm Caryn:

I once danced and sang along to The Smiths down the aisle of a Yorkshire supermarket. I wonder what the other customers thought...
  6:53pm Morrissey:

  6:55pm Morrissey:

the Magic Pan in Paramus anyone?
  6:56pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: "Oy, 'nother turist..." :)
Maybe more of a reaction for Mancs!
  6:57pm sfrances:

thx for the mention, Clay~right after the Smiths phone off the hook my neighbor's car alarm went off....Coincidence?

Yay! It's Tugboat!

Always remember,y'all
  6:57pm Matt from Springfield:

Tugboat from New York...Richie!
  6:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Remember, and continue to remember!
  6:58pm Caryn:

@Matt: heh! Of course, I lived there at the time. But it's the fault of Co-op. If you play "There is a Light that Never Goes Out", I'm going to let the music take me away.
  6:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Clay and Fabio! Always a fun time when we get the chat-and-calls!
Have a good night everyone!
  6:59pm sfrances:

G'night & always remember!
  6:59pm Caryn:

Lovely show from the diumvirate!
