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!

  Thanks for listening. The news cycle has been evolving so rapidly in the past couple of weeks that it's been tough staying up-to-date. Trade Deals, Gay Marriage, and of course, the Charleston shootings. I intended for this show to focus on Charleston and the Confederate flag, but it veered into many other areas, as often happens with TDS. I was happy that Neil Young and Poco worked (at least to my ears) so effectively in this context. Skynyrd and the others, too.

Some discourse on the Accu about the microcassette recorder and the "brassy" or "tinny" sound quality of the show, and whether it's annoying or too cutting over time and produces audio fatigue. I feel that it kind of does and it's a bummer, as I've been doing it this way since '98! I struggle with digital field recording as I feel my thin voice gets lost in the ether and has no distinguishing characteristics. Still, it might be better than the high-hiss microcassette sound. Not sure if you're enjoying these pre-produced shows. They don't have the immediacy of live, or the unpredictability, but I enjoy the editing and the control. Ah, heck. Same old questions. Issues. It never ends. Every week is a mad (but, usually fun) scramble to pull something together by showtime.

Filled in for Dave The Spazz on June 25th at 9pm. That link is available in the archives. Check it out if you would. I really had fun playing old records, taking calls, etc. Thanks to Dave the Spazz for allowing me to do that. He is a great guy and a good buddy to me. OK, it' Saturday night and I'm signing off to enjoy some weekend, although I seem to spend 50% of my "free" time putting records away. Ugh. Downloading grows more and more appealing to me.

Take care, have a fun summer, and keep checking in. I appreciate your listening. Always remember. CP62715SOCRANR99S.O.

SCOTUS handed the GOP a gift today, Clay. . .now they can continue to sit back and bitch, stir up the base, and not actually have to come up with their own plan.

Appreciate your patience with these "issues" shows. Was glad to see Obamacare get through the court today. Too bad about the trade deal. Still trying to comprehend it, but it doesn't sound good. At any rate, it's SUMMER!

I am down with Bernie! The whole unelectable thing is irritating to hear. Same for Elizabeth Warren. As if sanity is unelectable. Hey Greg! Sean!
  6:21pm Gee Lampa:

Hate 2 say it, but I don’t believe #berniesanders is ready 4 primetime. Dances around #BlackLivesMatter question on @NPR. Vague and combative.

The government is trying to draw attention to racism? Is that the theory?

He's very vocal about the need for rigorous debate, but he talks over you like a Dutch Uncle.

He's the Indian of the group!
  6:24pm V Priceless:

Warren should run. I'm down with her more than any of the others.
  6:25pm Gee Lampa:

I second Warren.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm Greg from Bloomfield:

I feel you, Clay. I'm grappling with the idea that I may miss my chance to cast a vote for our first female President because I'm going to throw my vote away for things I actually care about.

Is that "Gown", Clay?

@Betty - did he ask "Where's the beer and when do we get paid?"
  6:26pm iris:

Why won't Warren run? Did she ever give a reason? Shed get my vote too!

I can't figure it our, Iris. That "she'll do more good where she is," argument is frustrating. We NEED her. Hillary seems like she'll be the same old story. I'll vote for her, though, before any of the 14 in the clown car.
  6:27pm Gee Lampa:

@Iris I think she wants to avoid "Nader'ing" Hillary.

That last Adam Ant record was perplexing! No one knew how to digest it!

Because I CRAM these interviews into one recording session, it's hit or miss how interesting people are. Still, I like including whomever I encounter. All worthwhile. Hey everyone. I'm filling in for SPAZZ tonight 9-12. Tune in! Maybe I'll take some calls.

I may have to go "digital" again. This micro-cassette footage is very bright and fatigues the ears. After 10 hours of mixing this stuff, I am almost deaf afterwards.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Philthy woman:

As always, thank you Clay for being 'good media' n getting many voices on the air. Too much or whatever. One thing I love is that you do not overedit and you allow the wisdom and confusion to come out together. Cause damn none of us are tied up with a bow
  6:42pm V Priceless:

Ha. I hear you - been there too. It's all part of the evolution process, CP!

What you do CP is also what I really love about what Studs Terkel and Ana DeVere Smith have done (not sure if I spelled those names correctly-appologies if not) Don't know if your into them but they transmit
the voices in all their complication with out over editing. That is honorable and too rare in this place
  6:49pm Gee Lampa:

I've been working on my rhymes, too. Peep this:

I saw Adrian Belew eating a Goldenberg's Peanut Chew;
so what you want to do?

You know I'm gonna GET mine.

  6:49pm iris:

Just followed you on Twitter Clay! Glad to know you're on there. I don't use Facebook. Too many relatives and people I'd rather avoid, gossiping and bickering.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm dale:

is there some wonderous truths in this dude's ramblings?
  6:50pm iris:

Studs Terkel is a perfect example of someone that used the medium to great effect!
  6:52pm Gee Lampa:

I saw someone sum it up:

On FB, you post about how you're at your beautiful niece's wedding.
On Twitter, you post about how you can't wait to get out of there!!

Thanks for the input, Mick. Now I feel like I've blown it for 10 years with this cheap tape recorder! :>) I sound really lame digitally. Thin voice. Philthy ... yeah ... I edit the crap out of stuff, usually to try to get more in in a limited time. THANKS for listening you guys and gals. I really appreciate it. email wfmu.org Love to hear your ideas and thoughts. Tune in tonight at 9pm Eastern as I fill in for Spazz. Got a bunch of 45s and we'll hang out! Always remember ....

  6:54pm iris:

  6:55pm P-90:

I'm speechless at the what I hear coming through in these interviews. Clay manages to do a kind of journalism that really outdoes anything in mainstream TV or radio. Class act, Clay!
