Clay Pigeon's avatar View Clay Pigeon's profile Favoriting

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!

Artist Track Album Label Year Format Comments
  Back downtown on this show, visiting Milwaukee's trendy Brady Street to interview people. Lots of annoying traffic noise and plenty of liberals. Just one Republican with a missing tooth, pissed off about her pit bull being admired by gang members. Enjoy.
Couple of guys on a stoop wondering who the hell I am.
The first pessimist of many I encountered. I want you to know I skipped out of work to make this show on this lovely spring day. The next day, vicious hail and tornadoes pummeled Iowa City. These new tornadoes are globally warmed and vicious. Enjoy.
John Sebastian  I Had A Dream   Favoriting John B. Sebastian  kama sutra  1970  LP   
Interview conducted in obnoxious traffic noise that drove me crazy in making this show.
A Moment With Condy Tap Dancing
What We Need Is a DEPRESSION!
  Excerpts from another LP I have used to death! I need to get out and dig up some new historically referencing vinyl. Here are Eddie Cantor, Edwin Newman and Al Smith on the Abbott LP "The People's Choice," distributed in 1968 by the friendly makers of sleep drugs Placidyl and Nembutol (which became much more recreationally popular than this LP). Here's a quote from the record .... "You rest assured with either candidate whenever sleep is therapy." zzzzzzzzzzz
The Right Wing Lady Sucking on a Sanguinous Cotton Wad
How dare that gang try to steal that pit bull!
Paper Lace  The Black-Eyed Boys   Favoriting Out Of Sight  K-Tel  1975  LP  Paper Lace (from Nottingham, England) did "The Night Chicago Died" and originally did "Billy Don't Be A Hero" (#1 in UK) before Bo Donaldson and The Heywoods covered it and had a big hit with it. Black-Eyed Boys was recorded in '74. 
Terrell - A really nice guy. Refreshing.
  Excerpt from Jerry Falwell. I have to say, I have a little pity for him after I read that he lost a brother in the war. Maybe it explains his venom.
Excerpt from Don Rickles whom I love
Two marvelous elderly Milwaukee women. They were a delight.
  Another over-used sample source. The George Washington/Abe Lincoln Story LP.
Hoodwinked by Cheney!
The Lethargy of the Democrats
Bob Dylan  Masters Of War (edit)   Favoriting Freewheelin'  Columbia  1963  LP  Dylan was 21 when he recorded this! 
Pessimists are springing up all over!
Kolonel Karl is upset with all the street noise (so am I)
Kolonel Wants a Whopper Jr.!
Jeff Skillings Grimaces
Breif interlude from a stenographers training record
  Apologies for the tape wow and flutter on this show, especially noticeable during songs. My Technics RSB11W is finally in its death throes ... BUT just got a replacement on EBAY for $15. Dual-Cassette technology! I hope this new one works. I'm picking it up tomorrow. Always a crapshoot.
The Colonialistic "Tip"
Multi-Lingual Showcase crowned by Milwaukee's own Incomparable Hildegard!
Repubs "Flip The Script" on Immigrants
Kenny Roger's and the First Edition  Tell It All Brother   Favoriting Tell It All Brother  Warner Bros/Reprise  1970  LP  This song was written by Alex Harvey. Band member Mary Arnold is from my hometown in Iowa. She got the job in the band by beating out Karen Carpenter in an audition! That said, Karen is one of my favorite vocalists ever. And Mary is organizing her late husbands (Roger Miller) museum in his hometown of Erick, OK. I dig KRATFE. 
Pleasant Young Woman in Heart-Shaped Sunglassses With A Chocolate Labrador
Abortion Discussion
AWOL Guardsman
Rifle Training (the music is by Gryphon)
SSgt. Barry Sadler  Badge Of Courage   Favoriting The Ballad of the Green Berets  RCA Victor  1966  LP  The Ballad of the Green Berets was the number one song of 1966. 11 million copies sold! Badge of Courage is from this LP. If you want to read about the really bizarre and incredible life and death of Barry Sadler ... check THIS out! http://www.sizemoremusic.com/sadler_history.htm I couldn't believe it!!! 
More Terrell
New York, Chicago, LA
Chicago  Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is   Favoriting Chicago Transit Authority  Columbia  1969  LP  I wonder why the horn rock of the late 60's early 70's (Chicago, Blood, Sweat and Tears, Chase, Buckinghams, Ideas Of March, Spiral Staircase, Lighthouse, etc. etc,) is somewhat sneered at sometimes. Probably the same way "band kids" were sneered at in high school. The whole horn nerd vibe. I always liked it. But I was a band kid, too so ... I love the first (double) album. Come to think of it ... who cares what I think?! Ha! 
Farewell Terrell! Good guy.
Art Teacher from the University of Missouri. Big 12. Go Iowa State.
More from "The People's Choice" LP Alf Landon.
Old Memories of New York
  Excerpt from "Art Linkletter Narrates the Bible" from the Dino De Laurentis production. The voice of Abraham is done by George C. Scott.
Simon and Garfunkel  April Come She Will   Favoriting The Graduate (Soundtrack)  Columbia  1967  LP   
Down With Ralph
911's Continued Resonance
