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!

  12:18pm MD:

  12:18pm Keith in VT:

Clay, great to hear you spinning disks. Greetings from Vermont... Green Mtn High.
  12:19pm DCE:

screw Coors for appropriating this wonderful imagery.
  12:19pm fred:

As recommended on the front page, I'm listening to John Denver and Luke Larsener at the same time. Improves both, in my opinion
  12:20pm dc pat:

got a soft spot for JD. The kids love him..
  12:20pm tim from champaign:

Thanks for playing the vinyl, Clay! Records are the best.
  12:20pm Van in DC:

Oh....right. Irene is out this week. Hi there Clay!
  12:20pm dinatekno:

DUSTY!!!! Hi from Naples, FL! I just logged into my computer at work and I hear your voice. What a lovely surprise! I love Irene too, but hearing you makes my Monday sublime.
  12:21pm Danne D:

This makes me ponder any influence Phil Ochs had on John Denver. His single style is reminding me Ochs here which is surprising even to me.
  12:21pm DCE:

good call, Danne D
  12:22pm dinatekno:

Seals & Crofts - AWESOME!!!!
  12:22pm Aloha from Pearl Harbor:

Aloha! Clay, Hawaii check in this morning.
Tell us more about this flea market, you know, Hawaii doesn't have fleas, alll the lizards ate them! (not really a good market for them....)
  12:22pm dc pat:

wait--is there a toy piano in this?? I never heard that before.
  12:22pm DCE:

I feel like a kid again
  12:22pm Danne D:

Possibly the one bigger Tull fan than Clay :) https://twitter.com/#!/sophiesolena
  12:23pm Cheri Pi:

This is what radio should sound like. Hello from Cincinnati.
  12:23pm Danne D:

Now I'm realizing that "Summer Breeze" prominently uses toy piano in it. This has been a very revealing show.
  12:23pm dc pat:

DCE: thinking the same thing...
  12:23pm DCE:

this song makes me think of my mom hanging laundry in the backyard.
  12:24pm Van in DC:

What? Maynard Ferguson gets played on FMU and I miss it? Boggle.
  12:24pm DCE:

Gerry Rafferty's Baker Street would slide right in there next to this.
  12:25pm MD:

Clay we need a weather report ASAP!!!!
  12:25pm Cheri Pi:

exactly DCE, exactly.
  12:26pm dc pat:

10cc, Not in Love
  12:27pm Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

Hey Clay, when are you coming up for that Sleepy Hollow Cemetery your we promised you at the holiday party?
  12:27pm Cheri Pi:

  12:27pm dinatekno:

Wow! It's like I'm back in 1975 listening to the radio. I was 13 back then and as addicted to the music as I am now. Thanks for brining up such fond memories and feelings Dusty.
  12:28pm Danne D:

God Bless the Internets - here's sorta proof about Ochs' (understandable) influence on Denver: "

Actually, when Denver joined the Trio, he was replacing Chad Mitchell himself, and the group then became just the "Mitchell Trio." The song that John sang to sort of introduce himself to the public as the new kid in the Trio was "That's the Way It's Gonna Be" by Bob Gibson and Phil Ochs"

  12:28pm dinatekno:

We need some Doobie Bros - Black Water!
  12:28pm MD:

Other freeform radio stations:"hey I like this DJ can we have him?"
FMU:"Sorry my brother...you have to get your own!"
  12:29pm 12539:

Clay should offer a transistor radio for his premium one of these years.
  12:29pm Duane:

"Searchin"! Now that's what the Eff im talkin about C P!!!
  12:29pm Danne D:

I think I'd love to hear Clay and Glen Jones rap about music for like a day or a week or a month or so.
  12:29pm DCE:

David Soul...bwaaaaahaaaaaaa!
  12:30pm DCE:

how bout some pancakes with that SYRUP
  12:30pm Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

I love that you play stuff I used to have on 8-track.
  12:31pm paula pc:

@ 12539: if that transistor radio could magically stream an AM station from the early 70s...now wouldn't that be something
  12:31pm Mike East:

@Danne D - I don't think I'd be able to get anything done for that month because I would be glued to the radio.
  12:33pm octy:

I'm at work all harried, but really digging your Soothing Sounds For Adults- music calling forth the atmospheric memory of slow living.
  12:33pm Danne D:

"She was 31 and I was 17" - sounds like today's tabloids
  12:33pm Mike East:

...could throw X.Ray in there, too, for comic relief.
  12:34pm 12539:

A special transistor case with a CASSETTE inside...
  12:34pm Bob perry:

Pure pop for now people 1st time listener and totally hooked. Would love to hear anything by Gallery~Dusty Springfield ~Johnny Rivers ~Millenium or anything on Project 3 label..
  12:34pm Jay /London:

@ karen I still have a few 8 track players and lots of 8tracks
  12:35pm Keith in VT:

Chase the boy in you away... saw the sunlight as a man... nice euphemisms.
  12:36pm Bogey:

would love to hear some America (Horse with no Name)
  12:36pm Danne D:

@Mike East I don't doubt X.Ray's musical knowledge.
  12:37pm Danne D:

Playing the clown isn't the same as being the clown.
  12:38pm sinner:

..you forgot to say Bobby Goldsboro was from Alabama!!
  12:38pm Danne D:

I missed the Champaign IL name check :) Go U of I :)
  12:38pm Bas, NL:

Hi Clay!! Great to hear you!
  12:39pm Kurt V:

Hey Clay!Monday afternoon had never been so dusty!
  12:39pm Kurt V:

Hey Clay!Monday afternoon had never been so dusty!
  12:39pm fred:

I'd definitely listen to a Clay/X-Ray show
  12:39pm Skirkie:

Yo. Also Secaucus.
  12:40pm fred:

@Danne: do you have any ties to Urbana-Champaign?
  12:41pm MD:

  12:41pm Danne D:

Bas is here :)
  12:42pm Danne D:

Yup, fred, went to school there.
  12:43pm tim from champaign:

There needs to be a roundtable discussion with Clay, Jonesy, X-Ray and Billy Jam.
  12:43pm Detroit Mac:

Summer memory: 1965 - working with migrants, picking cherry peppers, near Midland Michigan, listening to CKLW on the transistor. Paid 85 cents per bushel. Heavy play rotation of Motown and the Beach Boys.
  12:44pm fred:

Someone there has been ruining my summers for years... J Stephen Downie has kept me at work whenever I had a shot at getting vacation time
  12:44pm Mike East:

@tim from champaign - a good idea for Sound & Vision Fest if they have one this year.
  12:44pm dinatekno:

@tim from champaign - EXCELLENT IDEA!!!
  12:45pm Matt from Springfield:

CLAY PIGEON! Almost forgot you were filling-in. Glad I stopped by the main page!

Have I missed any zanyness??
Avatar 12:45pm monica:

Yo, Clay Pigeon! Love it when you bust out the Ronco!
  12:46pm Bob perry:

OOOOHHHHH Gary Numan Cars and your playing Cars ~Nice seg..
  12:46pm Danne D:

Billy Jam is having X.Ray on his show this week along with the guys from Weird NJ
  12:47pm tim from champaign:

Fred - I vaguely know Downie from Friday nights at the Esquire. My wife and a number of friends have had classes with him.
  12:47pm fred:

Thanks Danne! That should make my day
  12:49pm Bob perry:

Summer of 78 in Beantown listnin to BCN w Duane Ingalls Glascock (Dig)
  12:50pm efd:

  12:50pm fred:

@tim: nothing personal, mind you, it's just that his MIREX deadlines dictate my work schedule. From what I heard, he's a cool guy. But I'm just a grunt, no paid trip to Miami for me
  12:50pm efd:

@Bob Perry, any chance you are the one-time Boston area record promo dude of the same name?
  12:50pm paula pc:

what efd said!!!!!!
  12:51pm Matt from Springfield:

This is like a "Blue Monday" for the 80s funk circuit. With a bit of "Escape" thrown in for good measure.
  12:52pm Bob perry:

You are correct efd. Living in Miami dealing in rare records.
Avatar 12:52pm monica:

@efd, i knew i saw you on that float yesterday!
  12:54pm efd:

whoa! no kidding! I was an intern at WBZ in the spring of 1978 - wish I still had those Ian Dury sex/drugs/rock/roll buttons you gave me back then! :) (but I still have all the Arista promo LPs and singles)
  12:55pm fred:

@tim: do you know Mert Bay? I've heard he's a real cool guy to hang out with
  12:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Bowie I haven't heard--I was waiting for a vocal, but instrumental?! Never knew Bowie did any!
  12:57pm efd:

@Matt, get yourself a copy of 'Low' immediately.
  12:58pm Van in DC:

@Matt - that was new to me too!
  12:58pm still b/p:

Was just thinking recently about listening to all of Low again, which I ain't done in many years. And years ago, I thought if he'd called the track A New Career In Every New Town, the acronym would ANCIENT. Ho-WHOOOA!
  12:58pm Danne D:

Clay has accidentally brought about a family reunion (or a few) here on the comments board today. :)
  12:59pm fred:

Clay is either prone to accidents or a genius at making what he does look like ones
  1:00pm Bob perry:

Hey That's so cool i remember handing those out to Jim McMann who i'm still in touch with. His facebook photo was taken by my wife at my home w Bob Marley promoting the Uprising LP. I still have a t that Ian sent stating The obscure is more interesting than the banal. I remember the night at the Paradise like it was yesterday w the Blockheads opening for Patti . Nice to hear from you.
  1:01pm tim from champaign:

@Fred. Yeah, Mert is friends with a number of my friends. He is a cool guy.
  1:05pm fred:

@tim: glad to hear that. All I get from him boils down to "your program crashed", but he's been nice about it. And I only heard good things from the researchers who actually got to meet him.
  1:07pm efd:

@Bob, very cool running into you here! I remember Jim well; please give him my best, although I doubt he'd remember me all this time later!
  1:08pm fred:

@tim: take a look at Nat Roe's archives, if you know these people, there might be a few familiar names in there too
  1:10pm Matt from Springfield:

@Danne: Clay is like that--always bringing people together. And reuniting those who have drifted apart! :)

@efd: Will listen to Bowie's Low! @Van: If I listen to it first, I'll tell you how that is! :)
  1:10pm revaaron:

can you ask jim when CAP/new EAS is suppose to be in place? end of the month, right? Or did congress push it back?
  1:10pm Bob perry:

@efd I will and it's great to hear from you. All the best
  1:11pm MD:

  1:11pm Emily:

that was beautiful!
  1:12pm Danne D:

I don't think I'd do well in a Clay interview.
  1:12pm Matt from Springfield:

Hooray for the Jim interview!
"Clay Pigeon's Voices behind WFMU series, Vol. 8"
  1:14pm Matt from Springfield:

@Danne: Clay has talked to me before...I don't think it's possible to have a poor Clay interview. He's very...I don't know, subtly in tune with how you're feeling, helps you talk around things you'd rather not say and make you comfortable with how you are.
  1:15pm Matt from Springfield:

"Clay's soft-spoken ways elicit love from guests and listeners alike."
"The Magic of Clay", I call it!
  1:15pm tim from champaign:

@fred - took a quick look but didn't recognize any names. I'll keep my eyes peeled in the future though. Good to know there are other FMU listeners in the area.
  1:19pm rlnd:

send some love from Antwerp ,Belgium.
  1:19pm Van in DC:

Wow, a guitar legend. Nice to hear Al being played on FMU!
  1:20pm Matt from Springfield:

Al DiMeola, I think I've heard this as background music in Clay's programs before.
And I loved that Abominable Twitch! Good find Clay!
  1:20pm fred:

@tim: the area I meant was academic, not geographic. I work at a French research institute about music called IRCAM, and it's a very small world in that field
  1:22pm Progfeed:

My 70's brain is being jazz-rock fused!
  1:25pm Danne D:

@Matt I've spoken with Clay and that is fun, but I'd fail the interview.
  1:27pm Mike East:

hey, its that song from the Terre T. theme, right??
  1:28pm Matt from Springfield:

Arista Records: "The label was founded in 1974 by Clive Davis" No wonder there seem to be so many records on Arista from the late 70s.
  1:28pm fred:

Proof of Clay's bad influence: most of my bosses are German, and the word "perpendicular" comes to my mind sometimes when I talk to them.
  1:29pm Matt from Springfield:

Radio Free Culture, NOT "Culture Free Radio"!!!
  1:30pm Matt from Springfield:

Sounds great Benjamen, hopefully everyone with get great guests for that!
  1:31pm Van in DC:

I thought the CIA, NSA, etc. were already preserving every little piece of digital information on the planet? :)
  1:33pm Jex:

  1:34pm Mike East:

  1:35pm dale:

hey clay, got my ears on. i was listening out in the garage to that a.m. gold, circa 1972
  1:35pm fred:

@Van: they are. Now they'd just like to be able to find something in the whole mess. They're hiring. People allergic to cute cats need not apply
  1:36pm dale:

wonder id gabriel banks rutherford and collins would ever do another tour
  1:36pm Matt from Springfield:

@Van: Ever try to search one of their databases?? :)
At least Archive.org preserves it in a (mostly) easy to find place.
  1:36pm Que 70's:

Don't shoot the clay pigeons?
  1:38pm dinatekno:

Genesis....prog baby!!! The only time when I didn't mind hearing Phil Collins...
  1:39pm KP:

Greetings Clay, sounds great.
  1:39pm Danne D:

Theremin! :)
  1:39pm dale:

my roku box has an archive.org station - great old movies for free!
  1:40pm BW:

anyone out there with some questions for Ken to ask Brewster Kahle tonight - email em to me at bwalker@wfmu.org thanks
  1:42pm Matt from Springfield:

@dale: Wow, archive.org has online stations now? I know you used to have to DL them in a compatible format, now they have a Flash player for viewing them online. But if they have stations, that sounds even better!
  1:43pm Maynard:

KLAY FM! Rock on!
  1:44pm john smallberries:

  1:44pm dale:

matt, get a roku box. you can stream netflix if you want but it has a lot of free public domain 'channels'. archive.org and pub-d-hub are the best.
  1:45pm Erella inToronto:

Great show though I thought you were putting the poor IT guy on the spot.
WOuld you find some Robert Wyatt to play for me?
  1:45pm Mike East:

My uncle got one of them there roku boxes. He keeps telling me I should get one since I don't have cable. I'm thinking about it once the bluray player inevitably craps out.
  1:47pm Cecile:

oh, Clay. Kansas?
You need to play some Blue Oyster Cult to repent.
  1:48pm KP:

I remember when Rolling Stone's first big book came out. Had what purported to be the "only known photo of Ian Hunter without his sunglasses." Huge full page picture, obviously not Hunter. It was Mick Box, ugliest man in rock.
  1:48pm Cecile:

phoeey, stream is being crabby today.
  1:49pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi erella!
Jim said that he "was game", but he probably didn't anticipate the depth and honesty of Clay's questions. Some people on the street end up being reluctant interviewees, while others are eager to spill what's on their mind.
  1:49pm Mark in DC:

Bad news from here. Paul Sears (drummer, The Muffins) lost his son, Niall, last night fighting in Afghanistan. Music community here in mourning. You can look him up on FB. RIP, Niall.
  1:49pm Matt from Springfield:

@Cecile: BOC rocks! Are they a Midwestern band too? :)
  1:50pm dale:

you can buy it as a netgear branded box at best buy and radio shack, but don't know if the channels are the same - should be
  1:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Nope, BOC's solidly Long Island!
  1:50pm Danne D:

@Cecile - What's the Matter With Kansas? :)
  1:51pm octy:

Bubble Puppy and then Kansas, very Beaker Street.
  1:51pm Danne D:

That's awful Mark :(
  1:52pm Cecile:

man, Mark, that is a sad.
hahahahaha, matt.
Danne, do you have six hours?
  1:52pm WRECKEDUMB:

man Deep Purple Mark II killed!!! I bought this chick I know "in Rock" at an Atlanta record store over the weekend when I was down there for Iron Maiden n Alice Cooper
  1:53pm Cecile:

I can see Gillen's influence on Clay's impromptu singing.
  1:54pm Matt from Springfield:

@Mark: Terrible news. And I was just listening to the Muffins being interviewed on "Echoes" last night. Prayers go out to Niall and all who knew and loved him.
  1:55pm jt:

damn i forgot this song is so good. now i want to go home so i call pull out my lp and rock out to the mule.
  1:56pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

On days like today, I find myself wishing WFMU was broadcasting on AM.
  1:56pm Danne D:

@Cecile (actually was a book pun)
I think if we conversed 6 hours about Kansas, we'd reach the point of know return :)
  1:57pm Cecile:

  1:57pm fred:

@Mark: terrible. I hope he's one of the last to fall, though I guess I know better.
  1:57pm Cheri Pi:

  1:57pm Julian:

When you said "favorite Deep Purple song", I was hoping to hear child in time, but this is good
  1:58pm Cecile:

Pete, Clay's show reminds me of when hipster DJs would do the "late night" (8:30 - 10:30) shifts on the weekend on WHDF-Houghton. they had one of those licenses where they had to stop broadcasting at sundown.

Hey, Cheri!
  1:59pm Smiling Ass/assin:

70's Prog Rules>Disneyland/world.
  1:59pm mrmucho:

great set, Clay
  1:59pm dc pat:

hmm, might be time for me to get into Deep Purple..
  2:01pm KP:

DP was better with Rod Evans, Hush!
  2:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Cecile doesn't bail on you, Clay! She always leaves right after 6. But she always checks in with you. AND, to prove it, Cecile always sticks around when you do a 12-3 or 3-6.
  2:02pm Matt from Springfield:

And hey Cheri π !!!!!
  2:02pm WRECKEDUMB:

KISS has been my favorite band since 1978. Get up and get yer grandma outta here. If there ever was a male movement, KISS would be it's soundtrack.
  2:03pm Cecile:

Okay, smart people - how can I get really smart really fast in intro algebra? I gotta take an Accuplacer test on Saturday to get out of it for school. I am working my way through a couple of algebra iPod apps, but it's so YUK. I only like geometry and story problems, I guess.

  2:03pm other david:

was having a crappy day. but you've cheered me right up, clay.

thanks :)
  2:03pm Cecile:

I have Kiss ALive and Double Platinum. I spent seventy-five cents for them. that's the right price for all the Kiss you really need.
  2:03pm mrmucho:

clay, help us out on what "he's worth a deuce" actually means...
  2:04pm Cheri Pi:

  2:05pm Mark in DC:

@all I'll pass along yr condolences if the opportunity comes up, thanks.
  2:05pm WRECKEDUMB:

He's worth a Deuce....he's equal to his old lady?
  2:06pm Cecile:

thanks, Mark.
my nephew is in active reserve right now and my friend's daughter just came home, so my thoughts are with all the military families out there.
  2:06pm Matt from Springfield:

  2:07pm WRECKEDUMB:

Gene $immons has stated that the riff was lifted from Bitch by The Stones.
  2:07pm Cecile:

WRECKEDDUMB, please format your answer in the form of an equation, please.
  2:07pm Maynard:

OK... Now, I'm actually feeling anxious because I'm the last one of my friends who's still a virgin!
  2:07pm Matt from Springfield:

Welcome OD!
  2:08pm dale:

i'll bet fabio is secretly listening and playing air guitar.
  2:08pm dc pat:

every time I hear this tune I almost like Trower....almost.
  2:09pm Van in DC:

Holy cow.
  2:09pm dinatekno:

BOBBY GENTRY!!!!! I love you Clay...really, REALLY love you!!
  2:09pm Danne D:

This has me thinking of Ms. Cantrell :)
  2:09pm Matt from Springfield:

"Ode to Billie Joe"! Always a great choice.
  2:09pm geokopp:

I love ode to billy joe!!!!
  2:09pm dc pat:

Hendrix/Trower= Stevie Ray Vaughn
  2:10pm Mike East:

@Cecile, I hear ritalin works for the kids these days when they need to cram.
  2:11pm Cecile:


I am taking it. My husband calls it my math pills
  2:11pm Mike East:

LOL...math pills.
  2:12pm Billy Joe:

Hey! I didn't jump off no dang bridge! I was pushed by my half cousin zeke
  2:12pm Billy Joe:

Hey! I didn't jump off no dang bridge! I was pushed by my half cousin zeke
  2:12pm fred:

I love this song. Always reminds me of Laura Cantrell. I miss her show.
  2:13pm Matt from Springfield:

My Dad pointed out to me how besides Billie Joe, friend Tom and brother's wife Becky Thompson, no one else is "named" in the song.
  2:13pm Cecile:

I think it was a baby.

Oh, dear god no. Aiiiiiiieeeeee.
  2:13pm Bob perry:

Brilliant. I was listening to her doing Okolona River Bottom band last night Boston Bob from Ft Lauderdale.
  2:13pm Keith in VT:

An unborn baby is what was tossed of that bridge is my guess.
  2:14pm geokopp:

the urban myth : they were throwing a baby from the bridge.
  2:14pm PJ:

Clay, I'm pretty sure they dropped a bag of Kansas records off that bridge.
  2:14pm Matt from Springfield:

Penned by Shel Silverstein, just as I thought.
(He composed very many country songs, particularly for Dr. Hook and Bobby Bare).
  2:15pm Danne D:

Mac Killed this song during the '11 Hoof N Mouth :)
  2:15pm dc pat:

man, nothing like Clay to make you feel like you're living in a different decade/century...
  2:15pm Cecile:

Story problem:
How much does the narrator pay for the phone call total? How money per minute?
  2:16pm Danne D:

Is this a clue - perhaps Sylvia was dumped off the bridge?
  2:17pm Matt from Springfield:

@Danne: I notice how Mac always performs great songs, closer to the modern era. Shows you another side of himself every year!
  2:17pm Cecile:

PJ - that was the right answer!
  2:18pm Danne D:

@Matt - I think Wildfire is probably my favorite of his :)
  2:19pm Cecile:

what is the square root of the times Michael Murphy keeps yowling "she keeps calling wiiiiiiiiildfire" in the song?
  2:20pm Danne D:

8 Something?
  2:21pm Matt from Springfield:

@Clay: Have you listened to the "WTNG FM 89.9" album yet? It's a brand new, 2012 album, designed to sound like a late 70s radio station sampler cassette. I love it--it's not "ha-ha" funny, but it's positively DEAD ON parodies/tributes to the mainstream radio sound of that time! I highly recommend!
  2:21pm fred:

I remember seeing a dance show set to Ode To Billie Joe, and it was just great. Jan Fabre was his provocative self, but the material kept him in check just enough.
  2:21pm Cecile:

8x + I am sick of math.
  2:22pm dc pat:

NO Hendrix DIVIDED BY Trower equals Vaughn
  2:23pm still b/p:

"...in a binomial, she was lost...
She ran callin'...
  2:23pm Cecile:

that is a find, Clay.
  2:24pm dc pat:

For the love of zeus! Hendrix exists on a whole different plane, way out beyond Trower or Vaughn. Jeeze-o-man, the slash (/) is "divided by.."
  2:24pm Matt from Springfield:

Whoa, things are heating up in the WFMU "music math" community!

(If the conversation about "music math" heats at a constant rate of +2°C every 10 minutes, and the ambient temperature is 22°C... :)
  2:25pm Cecile:

@dcp or in a gay fictional relationship with....
  2:25pm Ex-Mother:

Was Jimmy Carl Black in this band?
  2:26pm Cecile:

...matt we will all be boiled alive within 3x - 72 minutes.
  2:26pm Matt from Springfield:

WHITE WITCH! Thanks for introducing me to this Tampa area band! I snagged two of their albums on iTunes!!

And I like "Class of 2000", very Mott the Hoople-ish. But, I was in the Class of 2003! And things still didn't turn out this interesting for us!! :)
  2:26pm Bob perry:

Hey Clay Geronimo Black = Jimmy Carl Black The indidn of the group
LOL from Miami
  2:28pm Cecile:

you guys should do this for Hoof and Mouth.
  2:30pm Cecile:

Clay, this calls for a little Jackyl "Chainsaw".
  2:31pm tim from champaign:

Ronnie Garvin? Is it the same "Hands of Stone" Ronnie Garvin who wrestled for Georgia Championship Wrestling in the early 80s?
  2:31pm seang:

Alligator Alley!
  2:32pm efd:

Thank you for indulging.
  2:32pm Danne D:

All these references to Math makes me think of these great bumpers that EFD has played on his show:

  2:33pm Cecile:

that sounded like Polk Salad Annie crossed with AC/DC, I liked it.
  2:33pm DCE:

"summerize" things for us
  2:34pm dc pat:

summary: / = "divided by"
  2:34pm Bob perry:

10CC Rubber Bullets =Summer
  2:35pm DCE:

except AC is NOT divided by DC
  2:36pm Cecile:

@bob perry, right on.
  2:36pm John YaYa:

***John Smallberries!*** Are you still in this same dimension?
Clay, sorta good show, you ain't no Irene. You're good w/ Fabio, tho. Your dissimararities merge well.
  2:36pm dc pat:

DCE, exactly. Good point.
  2:36pm dale:

as much as we could all sing along to this summer song, i don't think any of us knew who sang it
  2:36pm Matt from Springfield:

Paper Lace? "The Night Chicago Died"?
  2:36pm Cecile:

yes, it was paper lace.
  2:37pm Danne D:

surf's up :)
  2:37pm Cecile:

  2:37pm Matt from Springfield:

SURF'S UP!! Beach Boys always = Endless Summer. But this, a lovely forgotten composition. From Smile! And Surf's Up!
  2:37pm Danne D:

can't really surf on the Delaware River, though
  2:38pm KP:

Saw BB last night. Fantastic. Thanks for playing this.
  2:38pm John Bigboote:

  2:38pm Van in DC:

As Irene's adopter this year, I approve of this fill-in show. (like it matters bwaa ha ha...) Nice job Clay, and thanks.
  2:38pm the glowing one:

that's from a bootleg? they are so much better than the re-recording.
  2:39pm Matt from Springfield:

@Cecile: I believe it was Clay playing this very song last summer, that led you and Carmichael to rec the later, psychedelic BBs albums to me. I have 3 CDs of their 6 post-Pet Sounds albums, and so glad I got them! Thanks!
  2:39pm PJ:

I was just thinking of the Beach Boys during the First Class song, and how you should really play Long Promised Road off of Surf's Up, but Surf's Up is great too. BTW, they were really good, shockingly good last night at Jones Beach. I have a few caveats about some musical choices but if they are coming to your town you should go see them.
  2:39pm DCE:

just no surf in Cleveland
  2:39pm Bob perry:

Fantasy World & Disney Girls. Great afternoon w you Clay..
Bob from Ft. Lauderdale B. Boys Rule!!
  2:39pm Fulton 5:

No time for the Summertime Blues.
  2:39pm KP:

Beach Boys at Jones Beach. "Water" on the water. Wish they did this one though. Danka, Clay!
  2:40pm Matt from Springfield:

@Danne: I could have a large boat run by you on the Delaware, make some wake :)
But after Ken's wake-boarding incident, you may be understandably reluctant to do that :)
  2:40pm ac/dc pat:

I just don't feel like working anymore..
  2:40pm Cecile:

oh, you are so welcome!
  2:41pm ac/dc pat:

I have like 7 weeks of vacation but no dough to go anywhere.
  2:41pm DCE:

dcp: ride that bike, play that guitar!
  2:42pm Matt from Springfield:

Surf's Up twin spin! Yes!
  2:42pm geokopp:

'til I die' is killing me! great choice, thanks Clay!
  2:43pm Matt from Springfield:

Sounded more like a "VinylFail" to me! ;)
  2:43pm Keith in VT:

Possibly my all-time favorite Beach Men track.
  2:43pm Bob perry:

Felt so Nice Had to do it twice
  2:45pm DCE:

Beach Grandpas, probably some Great Grandpas in there
  2:46pm dale:

fun and games sound like love american style group
  2:46pm Danne D:

That new Beach Boys single just kills me - it's like Mike Love sucked all of the soul out of it :(
  2:47pm ac/dc pat:

DCE: correct again, think I'll take a week off and work as a musician for once.
  2:47pm dale:

cowsills (duh)
  2:47pm DCE:

my daugther and I were watching some surf movie last week...can't remember which one. She loved watching the guys get crushed by 30ft waves.
  2:50pm Bob perry:

Pac Man Fever
  2:51pm DCE:

later, Clay, it was fun!
  2:51pm Danne D:

Thanks for a fun listen, Clay :)
  2:52pm Matt from Springfield:

Always remember!
Or, for computer programmers out there: remember++ :)
  2:52pm KP:

Summertime Blues is such a great song even Rush couldnt ruin it.
  2:52pm Jex:

@Mike East I know, I was just being obligatorily American ^_^
  2:54pm steve:

@Matt - while (true) remember();
  2:54pm KP:

Danne D they did another new one that Brian sang and it was really good.
  2:55pm tomB:

well that was an epiphanatic moment! I was starting up CDs but the console was still set to tuner. It came on exactly with the opening of Surf's Up, so I thought it was the CD, but I had left it o/o state for my dad's memorial, where it was a big hit. How did it get back to NYC? That's why god made the radio.
  2:55pm Matt from Springfield:

Nicely put steve!
  2:55pm T.Waits:

The piano has been drinkin'
  2:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Viva Jersey City!
  2:58pm Bob perry:

Thank you Clay ~Thank you very much!!
  2:58pm Van in DC:

Thanks again Clay!
  2:59pm Cecile:

Clay, you ever think of wedding DJing back in Iowa? I think you have those crowd-pleasing ways, and would instantly be better than 99% of all the DJs out there.
  3:00pm Cecile:

or even in the Quad city area...or the Upper Midwest...
  3:08pm tomB:

South Dakota's own David Soul! The 1 song by Bobby Goldsboro I like, but it's amazing.
  3:40pm Aloha from Pearl Harbor:

You Kno, Clay, if we were to surf to "nucleotide", it'd be more like oozing the wave....
c'mon Clay and ooze with me in Hawaii
Aloha, Clay
