  Thanks for listening to this episode of The Dusty Show on WFMU. I hope you enjoyed it. It was good to see all the empassioned people on the streets during May Day in New York. Their enthusiasm was infectious and a great sense of positivity was in the air. It was also good to see Occupy friends like Brendan Burke, and to hear that their movement lives and breathes and is moving forward despite tremendous resistance. I hope to have Brendan on soon

Really enjoyed the flea finds this week, as well. I am always tempted to cram in as many as I can because I get excited about them and grow anxious to share them with you. Better to let them breathe a bit, though. Nice to play four flat-out on this episode. That one-hour of time goes by too fast. Anyway, I hope you liked them, too. I realize that there are songs I could play that would connect more easily with FMU listeners, but by challenging myself to accept things I might otherwise reject and by asking you to do the same, it feels right somehow, and fun. You are the best audience anywhere, I have no doubt.

Get in touch if you like -

dusty@wfmu.org - Im on Facebook, SOundcloud, and Twitter. There's even a group call Pigeonnaires that you can join. I hope you do. http://www.facebook.com/groups/pigeonnaires/?fref=ts

Time to zzzzzzz now, and then a new week starts. Another week, another Dusty. I'm glad you've stuck with me. Take care and ... always remember.

Hi Clay and Pigeonnaires! And speaking of which...hi Occupy Staten Island!
Avatar 6:14pm sFrances from VA:

Clay: awesome! I saw vid as a way to branch out from basic photos or collages that I already do. I'm a big fan of using vid purely to capture audio: pointing my camera at something besides where the sound is coming from to create a 3rd reality (or something)

Heya Clay! My avatar is coincidentally apropos for the discourse.
  6:15pm dale:

i get where this guy is coming from. go onto seethroughnewyork.com and see that a cleaner for the mta makes $28 an hour. and then benefits. i've checked salaries of all folks i know who are teachers and csa employees and every one of them has had yearly raises during this 'recession' - in my county 40% of income is fed/state/local employees. 60% work to support the other 40. can't sustain itself

Clay, that really means a lot coming from you. Sincerely, you make my day every time I see you like or comment on something. Feel free to be constructively critical too!
Avatar 6:18pm glenn:

economies are ecosystems. we're all better off if everybody earns a good wage.
Avatar 6:19pm Clay Pigeon:

Agree Glenn.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm Matt from Springfield:

Quite appropos, Carm!

@dale: OTOH, public sector unions first formed in the 60s and 70s so that those employees could make *comparable* wages as the private sector equivalents. Private wages have dropped and stagnated, now they can get those workers angry at public workers and demand their wages be cut. Divide and conquer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm Carmichael:

BTW, my next art rock band will be called Coincidentally Apropos.
  6:20pm Lennon:

Happy Mao day. You ain't gonna' make it with anyone anyhow.

OTOOH, kinda surprised 40% of the employees in your location are public sector--that's like where I live outside of DC.

Avatar 6:21pm Fredericks:

Say it, Matt. Race to the bottom!
Avatar 6:21pm Clay Pigeon:

Hi Fredericks. Sorry I've been out of touch. Been thinking of you and hope you are well my friend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm Carmichael:

As a public sector employee, I naturally bristle at the assumption of high wages/low output. I work my ass off, and I ain't gettin' rich.

Living wage in Manhattan for 1 adult with 1 child is $25/hr.

I was responding to the divide and conquer comment. You post too fast, Matt.

@Matt I once lived on the mean streets of McLean, VA ;-)

@LDave: How else would she be a "hippie chick"??

"Hi Fredericks. Sorry I've been out of touch."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm Matt from Springfield:

@Fredericks: That's easy to fix: TYPE! TYPE! TYPE! and never stop!! ;)
But I figured that's the comment you meant and responded accordingly.
Avatar 6:24pm sFrances from VA:

@Glenn: So true. Obama is a moderate and that's how he campaigned, but I think a lot of lefties put a lot more of a progressive filter on him.

@Nate: Ha! McLean. (I'm originally from Springfield)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm Lizardner Dave:

Well, she certainly hit all the campus lefty buzzwords. I just wasn't sure if she was from the Judean People's Front or the People's Front of Judea.

And why Vin *voluntarily* went from FMU down to FUV I'll never know...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm Lizardner Dave:

FUV boo, hiss....
  6:29pm Night Al:

Trade agreements benefit poorer countries while taking American jobs away. We used to operate under what we call 'protectionism'. Now American corporations base in poor countries where they can hire workers for slave wages. American companies should be required to hire American citizens. But Obama said to forget it, with the new world order and the global economy, those jobs are gone and aren't coming back. Get over it. Corporate greed will be the downfall of humanity.
Avatar 6:30pm Clay Pigeon:

Dale and Night Al ... glad you made it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Good one to you too, Nate!
Avatar 6:31pm david_:

Good points, Night Al. And now Sen Baucus wants to fast-track a new trade agreement...
  6:33pm Harpo:

I thought American companies were required to hire non American citizens. Much cheaper than slavery. You don't have to feed, cloth or house them.
Avatar 6:34pm Fredericks:

I met Utah Phillips. Before he died!
  6:34pm Nate:

Who is Vin. Silly me, I thought he said Vin Scully - Dodgers host
Avatar 6:34pm Clay Pigeon:

Harpo ... thanks a lot for chiming in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm Matt from Springfield:

Ahem, U. Utah Philips!! Legendary folk singer and figure. And true, Anarchism isn't "chaos"--it's no government, but laws. No property, but possessions. "Fraggle Rock" is a great example of an Anarchy society; too bad we're very different from the Fraggles and probably couldn't make that work in reality...
  6:35pm Night Al:

@david it seems many of our leaders are being bought by corporations and no longer represent the will of the vast majority of Americans. We need to get the money out of politics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm Matt from Springfield:

BRENDAN BURKE!!! Long time no listen! :D
Avatar 6:35pm northguineahills:

@Fredericks: I suppose that's the better temporal framework in which to meet Utah Phillips as opposed to the alternative.

Avatar 6:40pm Danne D:

wait is this guy Anti-Shower?
Avatar 6:40pm sFrances from VA:

It's been interesting in my new job at a local major hospital processing invoices & reimbursements. I know there are a lot of American nurses needing work, yet the place I worked for just paid $3000 to relocate a Philippine family of 5, one of whom if a new hire nurse. I don't want to be xenophobic ala Pat Buchannen (can't spell/drinking beer) but....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm Matt from Springfield:

@Andy Breckman: "Masturbatory!" Maybe he has a Masturbatorium too!
@Danne: Actually I think he's intolerant of Non-Showerers.
Avatar 6:42pm sFrances from VA:

i just think of all of the women of color in my own city who'd love to have that job & would be qualified....
  6:43pm common:

i hope the parking lots stop
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm Matt from Springfield:

@Frances: Preferring new hires and/or immigrants, could be they're responding to the need for more nurses, while not letting their salaries rise.
Avatar 6:44pm Danne D:

@M_f_S "everybody has to take a shower" - I couldn't tell if he was pro- or anti- shower based on that. Seemed rhetorical
Avatar 6:45pm Danne D:

I think your listeners knew already Clay :)
  6:45pm Nate:

@Frances She may be H1B Visa holder. That one seems to always "slide by"
Avatar 6:45pm northguineahills:

As well known, workers of any health profession (MDs, DOs, RNs, etc), are in short supply in this nation, mainly due to the dire straits of health industry we find ourselves.

Analog tape rules! Can I get a picture of the deck for the Pigeonnaires site?

I'll post a glamour shot of the RS-B11W, Nate.
  6:48pm Nate:

Great tune! Kevin Nutt! Where are you?
Avatar 6:48pm sFrances from VA:

North, Matt, Nate; Thanks so much for weighing in & giving me other perspectives to consider. This hospital is also part of a university: so I don't think there's a shortage of locally grown cheap workers.

There are a lot of eye opening, interesting humanity related things about my new boring accounts payable job....;)

Going along with the theme, let us not forget our fallen brothers and sisters who sacrificed their lives to get their opinions out to the public about the atrocious war in Vietnam. May 4, 1970, Kent, Ohio...Rest in peace Bill, Sandy, Jeff, Allison. Never forget.

Late '70s-early '80s always seems to be where one finds a glut of used/discarded vinyl, amirite? Guess it makes sense...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Matt from Springfield:

Ahem. Leprechaunosy!! :)
Avatar 6:56pm Danne D:

@Slim when I was in college I had taken a sociology course (it was around the 20th anniversary of Kent State) and that was one of things that was discussed. Incidental to the rest of this story but anyway soon after it was the end of the semester and I was heading back home and on the VAN on the way to the airport started chatting with the military gentleman that was on the airport shuttle (Rantoul AFB was nearby). Anyhow in the airport I continued the convo and asked him where he was from and he said "Kent, Ohio". And there was a pause. And then he asked me how old I was on May 4, 1970 (and I rather sheepishly told him I was still a couple months in planning). There's a unique kind of bravery - this guy enrolled in ROTC and it paid for his school at Kent State which can't have been easy - he was a student at the time of the incident. And what I took away was how much it affected him even all those years later and how saddened he was at what had happened.

@sFrances @Danne D thank you for your comments, I have met many people who have pain and anguish in their hearts and faces when they talk about that day, I did an internship at the newly created May 4 Visitors Center in Kent Ohio when i was a student there. Its upsetting to me how people still to this day(43 years later) affected by the events that happened on that fateful day.

I will be going to the KSU commons on saturday, I hope some of you will join. i will be driving 7 hours from NJ. God bless you all, Peace and love

Avatar 7:03pm sFrances from VA:

@Slim: that's how traumatic events work, unfortunately. And as tough as it might be at times, it's good that you've gotten to talk to these fine folks because it only grows empathy for more people who've been involved in traumatic events (small/personal or large scale) that you might never meet, but can still help in one way or another. All the best to you.
