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 Fanatics   Strange Way   Options The Fanatics  X Static  1982  EP  This song was written by an old friend, Dwain Morris, who passed away in Sept. of 2014. His band, The Fanatics, were popular in the Tampa Bay area at that time and I played many gigs with other bands, sharing the stage with Dwain, Kirk, Art, and Ricky of The Fanatics. Those were fun times. We were all pretty young and inspired and shared a lot of community and energy. Dwain was a talented guy, funny, sometimes dark, creative, driven, and compelling on stage. I'm sad that he's gone. I hope his spirit finds peace wherever it has flown. Always remember. Here's a link to an article which describes one of their last gigs together, http://www.tampabay.com/news/humaninterest/local-favorite-the-fanatics-to-open-for-the-fixx-at-largo-cultural-center/1193908   
  This episode of The Dusty Show consists entirely of audio footage gathered at The People's Climate March which took place on Sunday, September 21st, 2014 in NYC. It was an incredible March which drew 3-4K people to the city.

A note: I have been using my digital recorder the past couple of shows to mixed results. Long time listeners know that I have ordinarily employed cassette-based technology to do Dusty Shows and the digital sound is pretty new to these parts. On one level, I dislike it. Too clean. Too sterile. And as yet I have been unable to figure out how to attain the volume levels I desire. My own speaking voice is kind of quiet and weak left to its own power, and digitally I find my voice buried in the mix as it were. For this episode I employed the "Auto Levels" feature of the recorder and was unhappy with the result. I find it to sound distorted and uneven. Honestly, it's getting harder to find the model of analog microcassette recorder I like, and if Radio Shack™ goes belly-up, it'll be gone for good outside of ebay. So, I'll press on and see what I can do in this digital medium. It can only get better. And as for mixing on a laptop, it has its advantages and creative opportunities. My turntable and cassette deck are acting up, too, with some unpinpointable (as yet) buzzing sounds related to ground issues. I'll get it, but in the meantime, it's been tough doing the hyper-edited pre-recorded shows I like where I really get to edit the s--t out of things. Just letting you know where it stands for the one or two people out there who could possibly care about such things. I actually expected more of a digital backlash than you've given me, which leads me to think you don't care one way or the other, and that's fine, too. Anyway ... keep listening. I'll keep trying things and once in a while something will stick. All this said, thanks for your kind response to the 9-11 show and the show after that in whcih I played more music. I'm always tweaking the formula trying to arrive at something pallatable. 15 years later I'm not quite there yet, but the journey is the fun part. Thanks for listening. I do appreciate it. Drop me a line anytime with your thoughts . Always remember ... CP

Dale, the Mormons and the Pope want more people, thus more tithing. The politics of peopling. Thus more platypuses.

i love Bernie Sanders. i really hope to see a lot of him during the next election.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Matt from Springfield:

Bernie Sanders gets elected in Vermont just fine - a big part of his strategy is meeting with people personally, and there's substantially more people outside VT than in to meet and "convert". Plus the classic Green Mountain Vermonter attitude benefits his style.
Avatar 6:28pm dale:

most of the pics i saw on fb made the marchers look like halloween paraders. don't know how much it furthered the cause.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm Matt from Springfield:

@dale: Not talking about the climate will further doom it. As long as it gets people talking (and thinking) about the future of world climate, it's partly successful.

Auto2ned Egyptian music - they use a lot of it in that part of the world, though it carries in Arabic/African music better than Western music.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm steve:

Dale - three hundred thousand people show up. mainstream news outlets cover it like a halloween parade. do you really think hundreds of thousands of people in the NYC area concerned about climate change were like the fraction of wacky performance artist types that make CNN?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Matt from Springfield:

NO PLANET "B"! Save the one we got!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm chris:

Ack! I hate that, the planet will be fine. Its humans we have to worry about.
Avatar 6:33pm dale:

steve - was it a fraction? just throwing it out there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm chris:

save the planet = the same kind of arrogance that's gotten us into the mess we're in -- save the humans = we're hosed unless we do something
