Artist Track Album Label Year Format Comments Approx. start time
  On Monday, September 8th, 2014, I left work early and headed with my Sony hand-held digital recorder to the sight of the former World Trade Center towers. Once there, I did twelve short interviews with random people, trying to tap into what those individuals felt about the anniversary of the terrorist attacks on New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C. It's been 13-years since that fateful September morning. Still, strong emotions surface when people are asked to remember where they were, what they were doing, and how the experience touched their llives. Thanks for joining me for this 9-11 Editiion of The Dusty Show.

  I hope you enjoyed this edition of The Dusty Show on WFMU. It's always gratifying to return to Ground Zero and collect the thoughts and feelings of tourists, New Yorkers, and actual eyewitnesses to the attacks of 9-11. It was a bit of a challenge executing this episode as all interviews were edited on a laptop and then bounced one-at-a-time to cassette. Likewise, all the newsbytes were recorded to cassette, so I spent the whole of my airtime juggling cassettes and LPs, cueing them up as I went. It went by very fast.

Always remember those who perished in the attacks of 9-11. Years pass, but the pain and immediacy of it is very real for so many who still live and miss their friends and relatives. Peace. Love. Clay Pigeon ... NYC 9-11-14

Hi Clay! Windows on The World was the coolest restaurant. Remember being up there and seeing Tito Puente playing in one of the adjacent rooms!

Good times Dusty Hour!!!
Avatar 6:06pm Cecile:

it sounds weird, but we often eat Indian food on 9/11. We had a dinner date that night, and went to a nearly empty restaurant with our firiends. Then we went to their house and just watched TV until late into the night. I'm glad we were there together.
  6:07pm Gee Lampa:

@VP my old college GF was there that morning. Just a business breakfast. One day out of thousands, those odds.

...I was in SoCal - very removed - in some stupid loft living space (even more removed - trying to make rent in SantBarbara, & failing) - w/ no TV - listening to NPR - & from the description - I pictured it as some Irwin Allen disaster movie - & I thot: that must be wrong, it can't really be like that (that's the thing about getting News off NPRadio: you don't get the sensationalistic Visuals)
- but it *was* - a for real Irwin Allen Disaster
...obviously - there was Duhbya - we knew there would be War & Retribution & Things would Change...
Remember: The U.S.~CIA supported the Shah of Iran since 1953 - a Dictator - which resulted in the Islamic Theocracy in Iran & the Hostages in JimmyCarter time - & has been playing Sunni & Shiite (Iran vs. Iraq) against each other @ least that long; later supported Saddam against Iran (see pic of Rumsfeld shaking hands w/ Saddam) - & supported the Mujahadim - incldg. Bin Laden - against the USSR in Afghanistan...

I was on my ex's Lower East Side apartment roof and saw the second plane. My ex asked me to use her telephoto lens to take pics. That allowed me to see things I'd rather not. I gave the pics to my parents and have never seen them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm dale:

my wife (then gf) and i ate at mary annes around the corner from where we lived in the east village. remember hearing all sorts of police sirens and ambulances going down 2nd avenue as there was no traffic below allowed below 4th street. it was just scary and weird and it seemed like the end of the world. it was for many.
Avatar 6:12pm northguineahills:

That evening, we went to go drink on the empty (of traffic streets) at a bar in the East Village, but for the first time in my life, I didn't feel like drinking.

I was in Jersey. My best friend and I went to the top of a nearby mountain to see the smoke in NYC. Then I spent the rest of the day in a daze, listening to radio, watching TV, spending time with friends and family.

@ Gee - sorry to hear that. Unbelievable

See ya, Cecile!

I walked across Manhattan to the Meat Packing District from the Lower East Side to pick up my ex-gf from work. It was deadly silent, except for sirens. There were ghosts of people heading north covered in white dust and debris, some people w/ blood. It was the first time I went into shock w/o suffering from physical trauma.

Hello Clay hello all. Sorry I'm late! Was listening in the car though I promise.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Marcel M:

I never think about it being 9/11 at all leading up to the day. Then I look at my watch or phone... and remember. Was in Jersey when it happened. Many of my classmates had parents in the city. Was a strange day for sure.

"There's no wrong thing to do on 9/11" - I appreciate that.

The only wrong thing you can do is feel nothing.

Anyone here to be productive and pursue a better life is OK by me. Considering the home-grown "Patriots" that hate the concept of a melting pot, and hate our president.
