  thank you for listening to this episode of the dusty show on wfmu. this one was recorded in manhattan's union square park the night before the show aired. the interviews were recorded digitally, which is something i haven't done very often, however, i was in the mood to try this sony recorder i got a while back that has been sitting lonely upon my shelf. it was fun to hear everything clearly for a change, unlike the microcassette which tends to distort all the s-sounds. i may or may not continue to use the digital in the future. the flea market finds are from upstate, where i went on a vinyl hunting excursion and general weekend with fabio and our wives. a great time was had by all. i particularly enjoyed the karen beth and i see that she has surfaced again in the woodstock area and has a website. i liked her sound. the innocents was interesting, too. so there you go ... another show. summer almost at an end. i have NO idea who you are or where you are. i don't get a whole lot of email. it's more facebook communication on the pigeonnaires page than anything these days, but not enough radio talk. check in if you like - dusty@wfmu.org. it's always good to hear from you. take care and always remember ... michael brown

Clay I'm at the vet with my dog Hutch so I can't listen until later, but just wanted to share this MLK excerpt from a speech he gave at Stanford in 1967: "I think America must see -- riots do not develop out of thin air. Certain conditions continue to exist in our society which must be condemned as vigorously as we condemn riots. In the final analysis, a riot is the language of the unheard." - MLK Jr., Stanford University, 1967

That was a very fine interview, Clay! I loved when you asked him if "America has lost it's way" and he broke into that (good-natured) laughter, this was is a man on the street with an eye for the Big Picture.

I keep seeing how we are wasting buckets of fresh water while so much of the world doesn't have potable water for every day sustenance. I'm all for charitable giving, but perhaps just striping your plastic.
Avatar    Thu. 8/21/14 6:30pm Matt from Springfield:

@glenn: Much like there are tests online intended for native-born U.S. citizens, to "see if YOU can pass the citizenship test"--that naturalized citizens have to know. A similar kind of test to see if "YOU would be allowed to adopt", to raise awareness.

Whoa!
Avatar Thu. 8/21/14 6:39pm northguineahills:

Well, it depends, potable water isn't a fungible commodity. If you're in a region that is in a drought region or one that depends on well water, then yes, it's a waste of water (most of the US). Otherwise, said waste is negligible. (ie: NYC reservoir fed water resources [everywhere except south Brooklyn, south Queens, and Staten Island])

Point at the floor, point at the sky!

just want to say diane fabio clay and hearty are my fav block all week and hate to see it wind down every time
Avatar    Thu. 8/21/14 6:41pm kat330:

Way to pop the levity balloon.

@ngh: I was speaking of the social media repeating the images over and over for the world to witness waste -- which it *still* is -- not whether the image comes from a region where water is plentiful. California's in a serious drought, yet I bet 70% or more of the bucket drenching is happening among its "celebs."
Avatar Thu. 8/21/14 6:42pm dale:

pontiac 6000? can't he reference something from this millenia?
Avatar Thu. 8/21/14 6:43pm glenn:

yeah, every ten cent cucumber from california probably consumed fifty bucks worth of water.
Avatar    Thu. 8/21/14 6:43pm Matt from Springfield:

@steve: "Tarzan Boy" was a novelty from my younger years, but Italo-disco is basically a prerequisite of crappy 90s "dance" music, as opposed to grooves and hooks of the earlier more "disco" sound.

Moroder I consider "Italian", not "Italo-".
Avatar    Thu. 8/21/14 6:43pm kat330:

@dale: Hey, I had a Pontiac 6000 as recently as 2001 -- great Eaglesmith song "It's a Pontiac" btw.

Didn't they say that the Colorado Basin is 18 months away from having the water level drop too low to deliver water to Las Vegas? They'll thinking of drilling a water pipeline that's even lower in Lake Powell.
