Closing Comments w/Fab
"Stay" - by Bowie - performed by C. Pigeon
  Thanks for listening to this episode of The Dusty Show on WFMU. Originally, I had intended to go to Bowie's residence on Lafayette St. to interview those there who'd come to place flowers, light candles, and pay their respects. When I got there, it somehow felt ghoulish of me to interrupt people under such circumstances, so I went home and tried to come up with another plan for the show. I think like a lot of DJ's, I found myself looking for curiosities and odd tracks that wouldn't be played by everyone else this week. I found a few such things; the Johnny Cougar, the Bowie performance after 9/11 ... I had a fear coming into the studio. What to say about the whole thing? I wanted to keep it respectful. Somehow, though, when I arrived, I felt an energy upon seeing Fabio. And when I heard Cracked Actor, I realized that Bowie would want us all to rock to it. It was great taking calls, though I felt I was a little rude to a few people, cutting them off and turning them down. I think I was very nervous. I did NOT want to come off as flippant, by any means because, here's the thing ... I LOVE David Bowie. I hope you know that. I just couldn't be funereal, because when I get on the radio, it makes me happy and I want to share it. I had been bummed all week, but Fab and FMU and the listeners picked me right up. Totally fun. However ... reality is .... Bowie is gone and it sucks. Sucks! I have dug him since '72 and all the way through. I never found a singing voice of my own in the bands I was in. I could never get the Bowie out of it, which is to say, his influence was so pervasive that I could never shake it - and just in these last few days, I have been realizing what a far out lyricist he was. Yes, was. Weird to use past-tense. I love Bowie. I will miss him big-time. NYC will miss him. I was proud to live in his NYC. John Lennon. Andy Warhol. and on and on. Not sure where I am headed with this. Like many of you, I am still sorting out my feelings about David Bowie's passing. I wish I could wake up and it wouldn't be true. Take care all of you, and tune in next week. THANK YOU for listening. Seriously. I appreciate it and I have so much fun making Dusties for you, and being part of the TNP, and FMU - Always remember ... the fantastic ... David Bowie. Natalie Cole ... Alan Rickman ... Angus Scrimm ... etc. CPNYC1151699RIPDB

No "hoople" in OED, but there is a "bowie": A low shallow tub or pail; a wooden milk-bowl.

I remember reading an interview with Miguel Ferrer about when Bowie was in Twin Peaks - right before filming a scene, everyone was set, and suddenly David Lynch walked over and said "Hey Miguel, that's David Bowie over there!" Miguel says "Yeah, it is". Then Lynch says "Pretty cool, huh?", walks back to his position offscreen, and yells "Action!"

Fabio's message of peace and love: "Turn off your radio!"

Wow Clay.. that Bowie impersonation... He has the most refined English accent ever! You made him seem like a bloke from BRISTOL!

i'm 55 & i agree. i don't quite get the heavy emotion this week. i think we're mourning middle age!

I love 90's-era Bowie. Outside of two tracks on 'hours', the post-Tin Machine to 1999 work is pretty solid.

It hit me really hard... I'm only 28. I didn't grow up with him but he sure meant a lot to me and still does.

I forgot about Tin Machine. That was some interesting stuff, somewhat daring for an established star.

Clay's version of "Bad Companying" is to turn up New Age music

As a tribute, will you do the last break in that Bowie-impersonation voice?
Avatar Thu. 1/14/16 6:53pm listener monica:

i saw him in 74 and again in 78

TM is underrated. Between the two albums, while there are a few dudes, there's a classic Bowie album that can be pieced together.
Avatar Thu. 1/14/16 6:54pm Marcel M:

@Hunger: Agreed! Do it Clay! That voice was something else...
Avatar Thu. 1/14/16 6:54pm InBrkly:

Well I very much liked the first tin machine album but just didn't click with the second one. I recall there was "controversy" over the original cover.

Was never a big Bowie fan, but I'll always respect him as an artist for his integrity and his willingness to change and reinvent. Much to learn from this even if it means setting aside a difference in aesthetic...

The date I caught on the 2004 tour (January 11, same date that I learned of his death) was the best show I have ever seen. They played 2 1/2 hours, and I still wanted more.

True Linda. I'm still thinking it's December and it's 55 outside:(

I'm twice as old as Marcel, and I'm not really surprised at how deeply it has affected me. For one thing, I'm still pissed about Lemmy, Paul Bley, and Pierre Berlioz! I own exactly one Bowie record (DAVID LIVE on LP), but I grew up learning about pop music through Bowie, among others. Friends with whom I formed bands were huge Bowie fans. He was a formative influence.

I was just catching up on the comments in Fabio's show. Listener Mott mentioned that Angus Scrimm from the Phantasm movies has died. My son liked those movies. Phantasm V might come out this year, I guess. www.phantasm.com

@Dean, I own exactly one Bowie LP (Space Oddity), b/c before I settled down, my roommates usually had to full discography. I feel the same.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/14/16 6:58pm Carmichael:

I was watching a Jeff Beck concert on YouTube the other day, and there in the audience was a relaxed and smiling Bowie, clapping politely.

Great show Clay/Fab!!!Thanks

yeah, mourning Bowie's loss having something to do with lamenting middle age applies to about .5% of the mourners.
