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 checking out this episode of The Dusty Show. I hope you enjoyed it. It was fun playing an hour of Styx music. Styx is much-maligned in some circles, but I had a gut-feeling that hearing an hour of Styx collected together might somehow be transcendent and reveal what a prolific band they were. I say were even thought they are still technically together, but to me Styx cannot be Styx without Dennis DeYoung, much as Grand Funk can't truly be Grand Funk without Mark Farner, and Chicago can't be Chicago without Peter Cetera.

In all seriousness, I was surprised at how it impacted me to hear this music. It actually played quite a part in my formative years in the midwest, where Styx originated and enjoyed great popularity. I'm sure I wanted to play guitar like Tommy Shaw and write songs like Dennis DeYoung. I have heard them described as "pomp rock" and I kind of like that. Like an American version of say ... Queen? Not so far fetched. At any rate, I love the band and, though they aren't my favorite, they really did create an impressive catalog of hits that are quite uplifting taken in high doses. I hope it had that affect on you. Effect? Affect? That one always confuses me. See you next time dear listener. I really DO appreciate your continued loyalty and listenership. :>) Always remember .... CPNYC21517UTFRODT9958

This show made me very happy - I loved hearing the callers introduce the songs, and "madame blue" was pitch-perfect for these troubled political times! I was disappointed that no one listens to Styx 3: The Serpent is Rising, this record is their hardest rocking and totally rules.

Styx is my guilty pleasure actually.
