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!

Ooh Hello There (Steve Lawrence)
Lou Marsh and Tony Adams  This Is My Life   Favoriting These Jokers Are Wild  Art  197?  LP  I often come across records recorded by comedians who frequented the hotels and lounges of Florida on small tourist targeting labels. One such label is ART Records of Fort Lauderdale. Here is a link to more info on ART. http://www.bsnpubs.com/miami/art.html This cut was recorded at the Comedy Box at the Montmarte Hotel on Miami Beach. 
Dusty's New Voice
  Dusty's new higher voice is the result of my having to buy a new microcassette recorder. I have used the same model for years, but to my dismay they have suddenly changed it, removing one of the little speed controls on the side. Now I have been forced to come as close as I can to recreating the "old" Dusty by holding down the fast forward button while the unit is in the "play" mode. Unfortunately, Dusty is pretty "revved up" using this new method. I did find though, that as the show went on and my batteries got a little weaker, Dusty's voice seemed to normalize a little. So ... perhaps in the future I will have to have a pair of tired batteries I use when I do Kolonel Karl/Dusty segments.
Kolonel Needs A Nap
Skittle Cakes With Lucky Charms On 'Em
  I haver taken to using music from The Top Hands from the LP "Honor Your Partner" (A school excersize album) for Kolonel Karl/Dusty segments with some regularity. It seems to fit well. MAy or may not continue to do so. Who cares anyway!
Roy Orbison  In Dreams   Favoriting The Very Best Of Roy Orbison  Monument  1963  LP  This song, I suppose, will be forever connected to the movie "Blue Velvet" where it is called "Candy Colored Clown." 
Thoughts On Larry King
Jim Bakker of PTL Club comments on Pat Robertson
Beloit Rhymes With Detroit
Truck Trip To Jersey
Taking A Leak By The Meadowlands
Homage to Joey Dee
Joey Dee And The Starliters  Peppermint Twist   Favoriting   Roulette  1961  45  I could write a book about Joey Dee. Somebody should actually because the guy is a walking encyclopedia of rock 'n roll. I was lucky enough to get to know him and his wife Lois. Really great people. Joey still plays frequently and his son, Ronnie Dee is also a talented musician. Here is a link to his website. http://www.joeydee.com/biography.htm 
An Interview With Mick Thomson Of Slipknot
  I was pretty excited to encounter Mick Thomson of Slipknot through a bit of luck. One, because he is a big rock star and I am fundamentally a groupie by nature ... and secondly (perhaps more importantly) because we are both from Iowa. In fact, I believe that was why he let me do the interview. Hawkeyes stick together, Ask WFMU's Bronwyn C.! Anyway ... Mick was generous with his time even though he was on a really tight schedule and, despite his fearsome image, he was very personable to everyone whom I saw him come in contact with. No mask either!
  I thought of about 10,000,000 questions I should have asked after the fact. I forgot the boy scout motto: Be Prepared. And ... I was nervous.
Slipknot  The Nameless (Live)   Favoriting Volume Three - The Subliminal Verses  Roadrunner  2004  CD  My question. How do you sing like this night after night on tour without blowing out your voice? This also marks the point in the show where my guilt began as far as "dark" references in the show which I am not real keen on. Sigh. I thought it was a really loud love song 'til I saw the lyrics. Had to support the Des Moines guys though. 
Meshuggah  The Mouth Licking What You've Bled (Edit)   Favoriting Chaosphere  Nuclear Blast  1998  CD  A serious onslaught. Very likeable to be honest on a musical level, and intense. Probably glad I can't understand the lyrics. Why do all these kinds of bands have to be so "EVIL"? I hope it is mostly showbiz and shock rock strategy as opposed to actual allegiance to dark forces. And I hope I am not a bad influence on kids playing this stuff. I worry about such things. 
A snippet of Alice Cooper - I Love The Dead - Billion Dollar Babies LP After what came before Alice sounds like Bing Crosby and I like it.
Snippet of Emperor. I read about this black metal from Sweden on the net and it's scary. Too dark for me. And I thought Bloodrock was creepy. I am so old.
High screaming vocal is Jon Oliva from Savatage. Fast guitar is Yngwie Malmsteen.
From Mother Goose to Meshuggah
The Archies  Suddenly Susan   Favoriting Sunshine  Kirshner  1970  LP  The fourth and last Archies album. Kid memories for me. I like this song.

  Wow. That's it. Another Dusty Show comes to a close. Another week bites the proverbial dust(y). And now I have to start another one. The weeks go so fast. It's hard to keep up. I got a lot of e-mail after that music show last week. That was cool. It makes me happy. This week I have to try and quit smoking. Wish me luck. Damned cigarettes. If you smoke, I demand that YOU quit too. I refuse to suffer alone. Thanks for listening and for all your kind words of encouragement. This whole experience has been incredible. Until next week this is The Pidge in America's Dairyland saying take care and .... always remember.
