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!

  I am writing these liner notes on August 9th, 2011 - well after the airing of this show. I am also confessing that I kind of skimped on these notes. I apologize for there brevity and for what I omitted or misplaced. You see, it has been a very busy Summer and I have fallen behind - not to mention I haven't had a dual-cassette deck for some time now - or a car. Our Jeep has been in the shop for what seems like forever. We also went to Iowa for my class reunion, so, I've been slacking a bit and I'm afraid it shows. I was really cranking along there for a bit, but I've dropped the ball. It happens.

As far as the digital thing goes, I guess it doesn't work all that well for Dusty. It's a change-up, but it seems to steal something cool from the overall vibe that I miss. Those cassette decks are getting harder to come by. And I use a very specific model. We'll see how it plays out. I hope you'll stick with me and take the ride and we'll see what the future brings.

Email me if you have the time. I love to hear your thoughts and opinions on anything at all.


Until next time my friends, take care and ... always remember.

Clay Pigeon

Listener comments!

  3:12pm Cecile:

Clay! sounds good. Bet Joe was grooving to 1-2-3 Red Light.
  3:12pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Clay! thanks for turning on the comments section. Is Fabio vacationing?
  3:12pm BSI:

  3:12pm Dan B From Upstate:

Hey, Clay. How the heck are you?
  3:13pm Clay:

Hi all ... in intitial panic/scramble mode.
  3:14pm still b/p:

Mmmm...panicked eggs.
  3:14pm Kenzo:

Clay over easy
  3:15pm Cecile:

Kenny R!
  3:15pm other david:

yay, an extra helping of clay :D
  3:16pm 3D:

Ok, will not post until typical panic /scramble mode is apparent-
  3:16pm hopey:

Hi Clay! Thanks for the 1910 Fruitgum Company.
  3:16pm Handsome Harry:

First Edition gettin' it done today. Giddie-up, Clay.
  3:17pm Wendy del Formaggio:

YAY, it's Clay! Now I have another reason to stay inside and keep working.
  3:18pm Julie:

Strength through Clay! Will see you soon :)
  3:20pm other david:

Is Fabio in therapy after the last battle?
  3:20pm BSI:

Strong Pigeons Through Clay Failure. Bring it!
  3:20pm pfapfap:

I hardly ever stream (listen mostly to podcasts), and what a treat to tune in and get a surprise bonus three hours of Clay!
  3:20pm Handsome Harry:

Herbie is soundin' fine. Lettin' the bones out.
  3:25pm other david:

Hm, tempted to open a beer and settle down with a sure to be classic show for the next few hours *looks in fridge*
  3:25pm Big Hungry Joe:

  3:26pm BSI:

O.David: git me one while you're in there, thx.
  3:27pm mitch:

I'll wait until end of show if you indeed measure up to FABIO.
Julie's presence should boost ur rating.
Do like ur street interviews.
  3:28pm steve_in_colorado:

was curtis mayfield in the clint eastwood movie dirty harry
  3:28pm Cecile:

Clay, you got any Bill Withers?
  3:28pm other david:

*passes BSI a cold beer*
  3:30pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Mitch, the Battle of the DJs was a few weeks ago. It's okay to rate Clay on his own merits and not how he compares to another DJ. This is WFMU; DJs are encouraged to have their own style.
  3:31pm Dan B From Upstate:

other david: Kicking my feet up and listening to Clay for four hours sounds like a nice plan. Only problem is that I have Mad Men and Breaking Bad waiting for me when I get home. Do I watch TV, or do I rock out with Clay (and Night People Later?)
  3:32pm Dan B From Upstate:

Hell with it. I'm gonna stay for the music and banter.
  3:32pm 12539:

Clay is always busy competing with himself, even without Fabio.
  3:32pm other david:

Dan B: I'd have to go with Clay, he never ceases to put a smile on my face :)
  3:33pm hopey:

Oooo, Clay interviews Station Mgr Ken!
  3:33pm other david:

What's Kens message of peace and love to the world?
  3:34pm Cecile:

Get Corey Booker from Newark. He's a great mayor and probably would love to play music.
  3:34pm Jennique:

Chris Christie is in the hospital right now! It's not a head trauma related, though. ASTHMA!
  3:35pm Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

Hey Clay !!!!! ELP Rules
  3:36pm Cecile:

I can go on and on about surgery.

I actually kind of enjoy it. The sleep is amazing...
  3:37pm jaycjay:

I had a blood infection once, too. Didn't need any kind of surgery, but it still sucked.
  3:37pm Swami:

Had shoulder surgery in March!
  3:38pm Dan B From Upstate:

What does Ken look for in an audition tape?
  3:38pm julie:

holding phone to ear no headphones!
  3:38pm other david:

ahahaha :)

loving these sordid details of Fabio's past!
  3:38pm Swami:

I've had 2 concussions!
  3:39pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I've had 1 hernia!
  3:39pm Ike:

@Cecile, yeah I like Booker, he's my mayor, but he's prob. too busy appearing on Meet the Press, etc., and tweeting Gandhi quotes. Also we've had a lot of shootings lately.
  3:39pm hopey:

I am loving this interview.
  3:43pm Cecile:

  3:43pm wild neil:

My wife has Lyme, is there a doctor you can recommend?
  3:43pm hopey:

We're listening!
  3:44pm Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

Cassettes rule !!! sound is not measured in digits ....
  3:45pm other david:

Oh my dear lord, please Clay, Ken and Julie for the whole show :D
  3:45pm ASB:

Antipsychotics for Lyme! That is trippy.
  3:45pm 3D:

(real) good job, Clay. (4 words)
  3:45pm Doug C.:

I got chronic Lyme at Stokes Forest in NJ. Symptoms much like Kens. It's been quite the party for 7-1/2 years. A lot of very expensive treatment with nominal results. I don't think they know what to do.
  3:46pm Dan B From Upstate:

Also... any plans for Ken to do another Speed Pitch show any time soon?
  3:46pm McFly:

What were you doing in that tree, George?
What, Lorraine? What?
  3:48pm wild neil:

Doug C-
Is there a serious lack of consensus regarding treatment? What is the most effective treatment for the emotional effects/ depression??
  3:48pm pizzadog:

Lower voice in hardware store. Check.
When do you raise your voice?
  3:49pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Fabio as a dandy...I guess I can see that!
  3:51pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

hypochondriacs don't NEED reasons
  3:51pm Kenzo:

Charles Baudelaire, in the later, "metaphysical" phase of dandyism defined the dandy as one who elevates æsthetics to a living religion
  3:51pm Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

caller : you can ummm... also .. go to the ... DOCTOR !!!!!
  3:53pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

my daughter was born with vampire canines
  3:55pm frenchee:

google search "vampire teeth implants"
for a real eye-opener!
(or mouth opener)
  3:55pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

pre K--that's "J", right?
  3:57pm Cecile:

CDE, my husband has a tooth like that. I call that his "fang".
  3:57pm Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

Dump him caller he don't wanna buy the cow...
  3:57pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

he's just got one?
  3:58pm Doug C.:

wild neil-
There is a serious lack of consensus not only about treatment but what the disease actually is. I saw Dr. Bernard Raxlen in NYC and had IV for almost a year.
As to depression etc. I don't know if there is a good solution at least for me.
  3:58pm J J:

I know when I first heard Clay I pictured him with a straw hat, chewing on a stalk of wheat.
  3:59pm wild neil:

HYPER-chondria is the opposite of HYPO Chondria??
  3:59pm wild neil:

Doug C-
Can we discuss this further offline somehow?
  3:59pm Mudcat:

Keith's book is definitely worth reading
  3:59pm ASB:

I think he retracted the retraction, though? About snorting his dad?
  4:00pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

  4:00pm wild neil:

This is GREAT radio!!!!!!!!!!!
  4:01pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

hey, play a number!
  4:01pm still b/p:

Cecile -- don't just call it, call him, like Phyllis Diller's hubby.
  4:01pm frenchee:

It is great radio, and my new idol is Shelley "MAG."
She withstood the Clay Pigeon scrutiny!
  4:01pm Doug C.:

wild neil-
email me your number and I'll give you a call. designnow@verizon.net
  4:01pm Mudcat:

He said that as he removed the lid from the box, some of the ashes blew onto the table, so he wiped his finger over it and snorted the residue
  4:02pm Lucas:

Wild Neil: The best in the world!! Hi everyone!!!
  4:02pm Kenzo:

Man, gotta add private channels to the comments board...
  4:02pm Dan B From Upstate:

You know... it almost doesn't matter the topic, but I can listen to two dudes just chatting forever.
  4:03pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Clay has this great way of getting pretty much anybody to talk about pretty much anything, no matter how personal or difficult. It's a rare person that can be that disarming. And it also makes for great radio.
  4:03pm pfapfap:

Play some James Taylor for Ken!
  4:04pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

his ability to come out of left field with a question is unsurpassed
  4:05pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

never trust a chicken!
  4:05pm Cecile:

Gotta go to a meeting, will be back in a bit.

Save the Foghat for when i get back.
  4:05pm other david:

There was an amazing call when Clay filled in on Julies show - where he put a guy on the air who wasnt expecting it, and he got very defensive and was going to hang up - Clay opened him up and kept him on the phone for 45 minutes or more
  4:05pm Van:

We're all on borrowed time
  4:07pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I'll pay you good $ to build me a brothel, Hugh
  4:08pm wild neil:

Hugh, was that north of Vernon, NJ?? It had big mirrors and some black walls?
  4:08pm J J:

"On Borrowed Time" with Lionel Barrymore. Movie is awesome.
  4:09pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Sing it, Ken! Next: Corn Weenie!
  4:09pm hopey:

I live in Hollywood and see transactions occurring more than I'd like to admit.
  4:10pm Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

Hugh had definitely been around the block a few times....
  4:10pm J J:

  4:10pm Lizardner Dave:

I just imagined what it would be like if Ken tried to sing his fight song to Andy. Actually, now that I think of it Clay Pigeon is pretty much the anti-Andy, isn't he? He WANTS it to be a long story.
  4:10pm Van:

Wow. Am I the only one who can't possibly remember my high school song?
  4:11pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

barkeep, a Concussion with Lyme, please
  4:11pm ASB:

"Tonight, when you go home: love."
  4:11pm other david:

We don't have high school songs here, mercifully.
  4:12pm Dude #8:

@ Van
You must be a Muncie boy!
  4:14pm Gabriel:

This is the first time I've tuned in at this hour and you are my new fave thing.
  4:14pm Van:

Muncie, IN? Nope...Texas.
  4:14pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Clay!
Sorry I wasn't here sooner, for once I wasn't at work--my office closed early today and I had to take a much-needed swim and some rays first--I need to brown up!

I'm here for the remainder--and Ken's here again!!!
  4:15pm Matt from Springfield:

@david: But do the "public" schools have songs? Or ridiculous little chants, Latin epigrams/mottoes, etc?
  4:15pm frenchee:

My high school song was to the tune of "St. Louis Woman"--"We're the mighty Blue Devils and victory is our name"
  4:16pm dave from knoxville:

Hi Clay and Ken!!! Clay, you know my deep feelings for you. What's this belly up business?
  4:16pm other david:

Matt - possibly actually, what with their rugby teams and all

but I went to the free schools :)
  4:16pm Van:

@Matt Hey Matt! I think it is about to turn into a triumvirate again with Julie...
  4:17pm Greg from Bloomfield:

I was JUST about to say that Clay sounds like Scharpling!
  4:18pm frenchee:

  4:18pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

well, you know what they say about first impressions....you only get one!
  4:18pm other david:

Oh dear, I love Clay
  4:18pm Matt from Springfield:

@Greg: What?? Heave ho!
  4:19pm Marc in Liverpool:

Scharpling talks too much about his friend's bands. The amount of promotion is suffocating.
  4:19pm hamburger / london:

howdy - just back from a rush trip for food.. which dj were they referring to? tom scharpling?
  4:19pm Greg from Bloomfield:

I imagine I would be frustrated by that if I wasn't also the world's biggest Ted Leo fan...
  4:20pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

when is this Tom Scharpling on?
  4:20pm Matt from Springfield:

Tom Scharpling is a "loudmouth"--he said he was influenced by the original Howard Stern shows in the 80s. A lot of people think he's offputing at first, but many then say they grow to appreciate the Best Show. Tom's remarkably sharp, sometimes in a very subtle way, other times just laugh out loud!
  4:21pm other david:

My face hurts from laughing too much already
  4:22pm Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

This is getting a bit .. ... weird ...
  4:23pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: Not a vamp, are you? A daywalker? :)
Tom Scharpling, Tuesdays 9-midnight. Also Archives and podcasts. (Clay has podcasts too! Subscribe! Or at least DL your favorites! Thank you Ken for WFMU's astounding web capabilities!)
  4:23pm other david:

Tom, they'll behave when Julie arrives.... or get worse!
  4:24pm Wendy del Formaggio:

For a female person like me, this -- men's underwear, peeing habits -- is all very interesting... and entirely not what I expected to hear during Fabio's radio slot. Rock on, Clay! This is fun.
  4:25pm phillip:

yay! more clay! and ken
  4:25pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

which Foghat is he gonna pull out?
  4:26pm Lizardner Dave:

@Marc - bingo. I listen to Best Show on archive because I like the music Tom plays, the bits with Jon are absolutlely brilliant, the banter with the regular callers is very funny but when the shilling for friends and the bashing of enemies starts I start fast forwarding through the show until I find a spot where the subject changes (and for the record I used to turn Stern off for the same reasons).
  4:27pm Bas, NL:

Clay 'n Ken? Wow! I'm too late switching in!
  4:27pm dave from knoxville:

Did Clay quiver when you said Deloris Telescope, Ken? He usually doesn't seem to want to talk about it
  4:29pm other david:

did I hear the door open? :)
  4:30pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

  4:30pm Dan B From Upstate:

Oh no! It's not streaming!
  4:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Hello Bas!
Special 4 hours of Clay today!
And Julie! Hellllllo there!
  4:32pm Wow:

It's the new triumvirate!
  4:32pm Matt from Springfield:

@dave: Hi Dave! It's been a while since you called! I was starting to miss you! Don't let Jason and Fredericks steal all your thunder :)
  4:32pm Wendy del Formaggio:

BAS!!! Hello!
  4:33pm Amanda the Power Child:

Constipation...in Utopia!!!
  4:33pm Clay Talking to the Deloris Telescope Audience:

Scuse me, while I kiss this guy!
  4:33pm hopey:

I always preferred Stewart Copeland to Sting.
  4:33pm Ike:

That was a great moment:

Clay: Foghat coming!
Ken: <door slams>
  4:34pm other david:

yay Julie :)

Ken has to come back on the air tonight too
  4:34pm Bas, NL:

Hi Matt!! Brilliant! One for the achives!
  4:35pm Bas, NL:

Hi WENDY!!!!!!!
  4:35pm Phil C.:

I can hear Ken comin' on the air tonight, oh lord
  4:35pm KickTheBobo:

play some Rich Rags!
  4:36pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Bas, have you eaten any good Kaas lately?
  4:36pm Matt from Springfield:

@Ike: Yes, too funny :)
@Bas: Hi Wendy! I didn't realize you were actually into cheeses ("formaggio") until that one Triumvirate chat where they mentioned your fine taste in cheese!
  4:36pm Joe McGasko listener:

Did Clay see Julie on the comments during Joe McG's last show, and the clamoring for Warrant's Cherry Pie? Maybe you could help a girl out, Clay.
  4:37pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Hey, wait a minute, which came first: this Foghat song, or "Train Kept a'Rollin"? I smell a rat!
  4:37pm Joe McGasko listener:

Shit, I thought this WAS "Train Keeps..." LMAO
  4:38pm Clay:

Hi Everyone. Thanks for hanging in there!
  4:38pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Joe McG Listener: It is, if you squint! :-D
  4:38pm Big Joe Turner:

  4:39pm other david:

I just remembered I'm going Clay Pigeon shooting tomorrow :/

It seems wrong now..
  4:39pm Bas, NL:

@Wendy.. Had some awsome "Bleu d'Auvergne" this week. Very fresh, absolutely tasty!
  4:39pm Mike East:

Of course when Clay is on for 3 hours I am unable to actually listen because everything is falling apart at work. This will have to be downloaded. I'm here in spirit.
  4:39pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Clay, hanging in?!? Give yourself some credit, Mister! This is FUN and great radio. xoxo
  4:40pm Joe McGasko listener:

Wow, this Rush song is NEVER played on the radio any more (add your own emoticon here)
  4:40pm Lizardner Dave:

Rush on WFMU. A dream come true. Thanks Clay!
  4:40pm Bas, NL:

*banner* C L A Y !!!! */banner*
  4:40pm Dan B From Upstate:

Thursday morning Meghan is of course known for her love of Rush.
  4:41pm Cheri Pi:

I never thought I'd live to hear the day I heard Rush on 'FMU.
  4:41pm Cheri Pi:

I never thought I'd live to hear the day I heard Rush on 'FMU.
  4:41pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Bas, Bleu d'Auvergne is a lovely cheese. You have good taste!
  4:41pm Matt from Springfield:

RUSH! Tom Sawyer, my intro to the band.
And yes, I think that Foghat makes "Train Kept A-Rollin" sound like easy listening. Same basic riff, but harder!
  4:41pm Dale:

As Scott muni used to say in my local rock station's promos, turn it up and rip the knob off!
  4:41pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Matt from Sp'fld: were you talking to me or to Bas about the formaggio?
  4:42pm dave from knoxville:

  4:42pm Jennique:

Is Rush heavy metal? You decide...
  4:42pm ?:

play Xanadu!
  4:42pm other david:

I suspect we're gonna break the website again :D
  4:42pm dave from knoxville:

Julie, you're the bomb too
  4:42pm Bas, NL:

Rush is way cool!
  4:43pm Cheri Pi:

Tom Sawyer was a Canadian dragon.
  4:43pm Matt from Springfield:

Apparently the "Tom Sawyer" instrumental break was based on the keyboard warm-up scale Geddy used in rehearsals.
  4:43pm Fabio's Stepfather:

RE: Rush. My son is less than pleased.
  4:43pm Wendy del Formaggio:

I will also go on the record as saying I like Rush. I grew up in suburban NJ, I'm in my late-30s and I'm pretty much Caucasian. You do the math!
  4:43pm dave from knoxville:

Clay Pigeon saved my life tonight, Sugar Bear
  4:44pm Cheri Pi:

I am less than pleased also, CP has sullied the air-nets.
  4:44pm Wayne and Garth:

<headbanging insanely>
  4:44pm other david:

I owe my knowledge of Rush entirely to WFMU
  4:44pm Matt from Springfield:

@Wendy: To you, of course! (Bas commented on cheese after that).

I was going to ask about Mahon--I just tried that, and loved it!
  4:45pm BSI:

heard Tom Sawyer a million times but this is the first time I've really listened to the vocal stylings. It's kind of hilarious.
  4:45pm Handsome Harry:

Ayn Rand - the intellectual godmother of emptiness, the shallow catalyst of exploitation.
  4:45pm Lizardner Dave:

I would like some more Rush please. Red Barchetta, Freewill, hell, play Time Stand Still. Aimee Mann is a friend of the station after all.
  4:46pm I X Key!:

  4:46pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Well thanks, Matt. Here's some shameful self-promotion: http://www.cheesesnob.com
Mahon, from Majorca, Spain. A snappy, tart cows' milk cheese with a pimenton-rubbed rind. It's a good one!
  4:46pm Matt from Springfield:

@Wendy: It's funny, cheese used to nauseate me if it wasn't melted as a condiment, and all the Euro cheeses too exotic to comprehend. Since I turned 20 or so I've been loving new cheeses. Manchego! That is one of my favs!

And any clue how to pronounce "Mahon"?
  4:47pm Bas, NL:

Clay * Julie = 100°F ;D
  4:47pm Cecile:

Aw, missed the Foghat.
  4:48pm Cecile:

Parson Jack Russell, the inventor of the dog. There are two schisms in that terrier world. Jack Russell Terriers refuse to be included in the AKC; Parson Russell Terriers are included in the AKC and have slightly longer legs.
  4:49pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Matt, welcome to the Cheese Side. You are in a better place. Mahon is very easy to say: mah-hone. Well, unless I'm saying it wrong... ;-)
  4:49pm Cecile:

Many breed clubs/associations don't want to be in the AKC - they feel that it encourages breeding for beauty and not for function and health.
  4:50pm AKC Dogs:

It is better to look good than to feel good, and dahling, I look wonderful!
  4:50pm Cecile:

Cavalier King Charles Spaniels went right down the drain soon after their breed club joined the AKC - overbreeding and poor breeding highlighted many genetic problems.
  4:51pm Bas, NL:

@Wendy Hey! Didn't know about your website.. 'sgreat!
  4:51pm Cecile:

AKC Dog - you look MAH-vel-ous.
  4:52pm Matt from Springfield:

Glad to be on the Cheese Side, Wendy. Thanks for the Mah-hone[?] rec! :)
  4:52pm Cecile:

Julie, I want to go there just to eat the Mexi food there.
  4:53pm julie:

it rules!
  4:54pm Dan B From Upstate:

Mmm... Mexican food. If it were up to me, every day would be Cinco De Mayo.
  4:54pm AKC Dogs:

We try to avoid running afoul intellectual property law, dahling. We may eat our own vomit, but we'd prefer not to touch lawyers with a ten-foot pole.
  4:54pm Matt from Springfield:

@Bas: About your Clay "banner" from earlier...we should all hold up banners for Clay and our fav shows like soccer fans in the stands!
  4:55pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Thank you Bas and Spfld Matt! :-)
  4:55pm Monitor:

  4:58pm Bas, NL:

Oh no... Phillip is going serious... give us some more Flipper.. fast!
  5:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Yay! Best legals are from Julie! :D
  5:01pm julie:

At least I have a talent for something
  5:01pm ?:

now, Dennis, he could hit some high notes . . .
  5:02pm Jennique:

Okay, you lost me with Lady. I am turning WFMU off now.
  5:02pm other david:

Jennique, you prude!
  5:03pm Fabio's Stepfather:

My son has decided to pour bleach in his ears as a result of hearing Foghat, Rush, and now STYX during his time slot. We shall be forwarding all medical bills to Mr. Pigeon post haste. We are NOT amused.
  5:03pm david:

Hi Clay, forgot you were filling in for the Fabs until now, but now happily tuned in.
  5:03pm phillip:

sorry for seriousness bas
  5:04pm hamburger / london:

some of these clay selections seem to only work in the context of this show :)
  5:04pm Matt from Springfield:

@phillip: Don't worry, "keeping it real" is what Clay's calls are all about. I'm at home instead of work today, and I just might call myself today....
  5:05pm J J:

Time Life Music presents CLAY'S TOP 40 CLASSIC ROCK GEMS
  5:05pm phillip:

  5:06pm hamburger / london:

yea! what "filler up" phillip said
  5:07pm phillip:

hamburger, any fan of neil hamburger?
  5:07pm Matt from Springfield:

I'm a nervous perfectionist, and usually at work now, but at home I can relax a bit. If Clay's only taking calls until 6, I think I can make it today. (And Clay took my pledge on Julie's show...this time I'm taking it to the public!)
  5:08pm Bas, NL:

You were great Phillip.. never apologize for being yourself.
  5:08pm Yes and Styx:

There's no Social Security in our line of work. This is our retirement program.

Tommy Bolin RULES. Play some Tommy, Clay
  5:14pm Robert:

  5:16pm other david:

*like a turtle*

  5:16pm Matt from Springfield:

@Robert: 'Fraid not--what was that about?
  5:16pm hamburger / london:

@Bas - 30 August
  5:16pm Luke Warm:

  5:17pm Where's My Line?:

Ken deleted a bunch of wiping technique comments on his show the first week of July. Wonder which side of the line this prostate side effects discussion falls on?
  5:19pm Sven:

Clay, you remind me of a non-vulgar Howard Stern..
  5:19pm Matt from Springfield:

You ARE a Rock Star, Clay! In real life! And on the radio!
  5:19pm Luke Warm:

Rock Star! Clay Pigeon is a Rock Star.
  5:19pm Davice:

I have gas and I want to share it with someone!
  5:20pm Robert:

Matt, the setup was that he was sitting next to someone on a train or something like that, and went on and on about cheese.
  5:21pm phillip:

oh my me <3
  5:30pm Math Equation:

Mr Rogers + Howard Stern = Clay
  5:34pm Matt from Springfield:

YES. This is the "Owner of a Lonely Heart" band! Jon Anderson sang too I think!
  5:34pm Limey:

Clay is a Trooper (70s Yes fan who hates 80s Yes), not a Generator (80s Yes lover)
  5:34pm julie:

i think that song had a really good riff to start it off
  5:34pm hamburger / london:

aw. 4 hours of clay isn't enough!
  5:35pm Matt from Springfield:

Hot doggy? Wouldn't that be "hammy"? ("Hammin' it up"?)
  5:35pm david:

lol, "and whatever you do, don't sing well"
  5:36pm julie:

hot dogging is showing off
  5:36pm jaycjay:

You learn a lot if you listen to Yes, topics taken from literature's best. Journeys and space ships and wives and lords, Inna Gadda Da Vida with classical chords!

  5:36pm Limey:

Steve is still veggie, the rest are not. Rick tells stories of the other members except Steve sneakily coming to his dressing room for part of his specially ordered roast while on tour during the 70s in his memoir "Grumpy Old Rock Star"
  5:39pm jaycjay:

Progressive rock, progressive rock, really sucks don't it? Don't it really suck?
-The Gizmos
  5:39pm Cecile:

Are you into Stick Men, Clay?
  5:39pm J J:

It's not even about listening to the music with this show but listening to a guy listening to music he really digs.
  5:39pm jaycjay:

Heh, well said J J.
  5:42pm jaycjay:

Ah man! Clay's mentioned Starcastle and has even played it but until this song I had completely forgotten that I actually owned a Starcastle album. This was on it.
  5:42pm Fredericks:

I request some Sun Ra or Wilbern Burchette. You owe us after this playlist.
  5:42pm About Starcastle:

Poor man's Yes. The program director at WCBN Ann Arbor (my college roommate) tried to get me to like Starcastle in about 1975.
  5:42pm Jason Smuckles:

It's a goal of mine as a burgeoning karaoke host to produce Starcastle karaoke tracks as a Dusty Show tribute.
  5:42pm Matt from Springfield:

@JJ: Yes, I agree completely! Clay is "the id of WFMU" as someone said!
  5:43pm pfapfap:

Agreed. The shushing is perfect.
  5:43pm Mike East:

uriah heep was in a jeopardy clue this week...only a dickens reference, not the band
  5:44pm david:

do that ramp-up Clay.
  5:46pm other david:

Some people have religion, but we have Clay Pigeon

Peace love and laughter till it hurts :)
  5:46pm Cecile:

About Starcastle, who was that? I'm an old CBNer.
  5:47pm Luke Warm:

Love Starcastle have all the CDs
  5:47pm Reality Check:

Is there any possible way *Fabio* is listening to this????????
  5:47pm 67tele:

I know the show is almost over, but if you get a chance to play Sutherland Bros. & Quiver "You Got Me Anyway" this show or the one at 6:00, that would be awesome. I'm in Denver and always a fan Clay!!
  5:48pm david:

Fabio's currently listening? Is he face-palming and gnashing his teeth?
  5:48pm Luke Warm:

I knew Uriah Heep when they were just a little pile
  5:48pm About Starcastle:

@Cecile: Midwestern Yes/Genesis copycats, mid 70s
  5:48pm phillip:

yeah! matt!
  5:49pm About Starcastle:

This show is slated to run till 7 EDT
  5:50pm Listener Dave From Seattle:

Hello all!
  5:51pm phillip:

go matt go!
  5:51pm Handsome Harry:

It beats workin'.
  5:51pm Listener Dave From Seattle:

Time for some b-side Focus?
  5:52pm Listener Dave From Seattle:

KEXP is kind of boring.
  5:53pm Focus:

Moving waves, de vind haz lefft you, and you are shtill in commotion.
  5:55pm phillip:

Together In Electric Dreams Phillip Oakey.
  5:55pm phillip:

Decent song
  5:57pm fred:

I love The Black Hit of Space
  5:57pm david:

The President of the Sierra Club in the '90s, I wonder what kind of music they listened to...
  5:57pm G:

@david: Green Day?
  5:58pm Mike East:

This is almost as exciting as I imagine a call from Cecile would be.
  5:59pm Luke Warm:

play more White Witch
  5:59pm Luke Warm:

Billy Cabham!!!!!!!!!
  6:00pm Luke Warm:

  6:00pm phillip:

I think Phillip Oakey did a that song with Phillip Glass, Phil Collins on drums, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman on guest vocals?
  6:00pm Bas, NL:

So good to hear you on air Matt.
  6:01pm fred:

wasn't cobham in massive attack?
  6:01pm glenn:

don't do it, matt.
  6:01pm 12539:

Thanks for the guest appearance, Matt.
  6:01pm Fredericks:

Clay, Matt likes Obama. Obviously, not progressive.
  6:01pm other david:

Matt, for a shy person, you're brilliant and witty on the spot, great call :)
  6:01pm J J:

Good call, matt from springfield.
  6:01pm phillip:

Well handled Matty!
  6:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Hooray! That lasted longer than I would have expected!
Thanks for your support everyone!
  6:01pm hamburger / london:

good call Matt! fun show Clay + Julie/Ken!
  6:02pm Clay:

Good Job Matt!
  6:03pm glenn:

make the world a better place and shoot a tea partier today.
  6:03pm Matt from Springfield:

@david, JJ, 12539, hamburger: Thank you all!
@Clay: You never DID ask for the message of peace and love...I will reappear with it one day! Thanks though, you're the coolest dude on WFMU!
  6:04pm phillip:

Good at holding your breath under water Matt
  6:04pm julie:

Clay is the man
  6:06pm other david:

You and Clay have great chemistry Julie, same with Ken earlier - and Fabio - you're all enthusiasts, you love the station, you love music, you're good folks and it shines through.

This is a special little place.
  6:06pm Matt from Springfield:

@Fredericks: Now, is anyone besides Obama REALISTICALLY trying to get America back in shape? In a way he's already moved the (left half) of political discourse so that we're not cowering before Republicans anymore. Progressives still need to be more forceful, but at least we're moving past the low point of the Bush years.
  6:07pm Cecile:

About Starcastle, I know who Starcastle are, I just wanted to know who from CBN tried to get you to like them - it must have been pre-Sex Pistols!
  6:08pm Matt from Springfield:

@phillip: I reached 25 seconds underwater at the pool today!
(I'm trying to get back in practice; when I was 10 I could go over a minute and a half!)
  6:08pm glenn:

hey julie, did you check out curved air?
  6:09pm phillip:

Think of starting your own show man?
  6:09pm julie:

glenn I think I played them on tuesday :)
  6:10pm Clay:

Next week I get my dual-cassette back. This Dusty is Digital.
  6:10pm glenn:

i must check archive.
  6:11pm we:

cacacacacacacan tell
  6:12pm Listener Dave From Seattle:

I like some of the digital stuff.
  6:13pm Clay:

Fight sequence from Jeremiah Johnson
  6:13pm Matt from Springfield:

For those lovers of marijuana (and Clay!), check out his Apr 22 2010 Archive (Pot day in Union Square). Clay plays the entire "Tomorrow Never Knows" track, and two GREAT pro-pot songs by his old fav White Witch! VERY worth it!
  6:13pm julie:

pot programming
  6:14pm Clay:

Pot is Fun
  6:14pm Matt from Springfield:

That reminds me Clay...I love White Witch whenever you play it. Is it available on CD? VINYL reissue better yet? I love them.

@Julie It's not "in the bag"--it's "in the pot"!
  6:15pm phillip:

I wish i could comment on that!
  6:15pm G:

In radio, we're always potting things up.
  6:15pm cheri:

hiya clay & julie ,,how are you two doing this evening??
  6:16pm phillip:

Love the cutting on this show
  6:16pm Clay:

Hi Cheri
  6:17pm Clay:

Thanks Phillip!
  6:17pm About Starcastle:

This was the mid 70s, not the later 70s. The guy brought home Starcastle, Richard Hell, and "Ariel". I guess that would be called eclectic.
  6:20pm Matt from Springfield:

I'm liking DigiDusty­™ shows--do you think there will be a day when all your cassettes meet their maker, and everything will have to be digital?
  6:22pm 3D:

Clays voice and words describe Americana so well, it transends political differences and relates to us all, in his April 15, 2010: A Trip From Audubon To Exira - Hometown Stories" piece.
He concludes with a description of that smalltown, 4th of July- one firework at a time-fireworks show, that we can nearly all relate to.
This recording is a real classic-
A spellbinding reading, and highly recommended (!)
  6:22pm Clay:

  6:22pm Clay:

Oops. Caps.
  6:22pm Listener Dave From Seattle:

I still record music on analog tape as well. Long live analog!
  6:23pm hamburger / london:

tip of the hat to clay and danish blood :)
  6:23pm Matt from Springfield:

@3D: Thank you, someone once rec'd that already, and I will back you up on the "Audubon to Exira" one (Goooooo Archive listening!)
  6:24pm Matt from Springfield:

Yes, hamburgersen :)
  6:24pm other david:

I love Clay's gentleness, whatever his feelings, he doesn't judge
  6:25pm glenn:

i bought 150 random open reel tapes off a guy a couple months ago for 30 bucks, and i don't even have an open reel tape player anymore.
  6:25pm Listener Dave From Seattle:

Don't throw them away whatever you do.
  6:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Someone needs to keep the flame going, glenn!
  6:25pm other david:

And with the majority of people, that gentleness allows normal debate and discussion to happen, which is good for everyone :)
  6:26pm julie:

I have a bunch of cassettes and I wanna get rid of a lot of them but like, who wants them?
  6:26pm Clay:

TY Hamburger! Welkommen.
  6:26pm Cecile:

I love this Ratt song.
  6:26pm glenn:

so if anyone has an akai gd77 they want to get rid of........
  6:26pm Clay:

TY Other.
  6:26pm hamburger / london:

tuten tak clay :)
  6:26pm other david:

julie - ask clay!
  6:26pm cheri:

so clay & julie have you guys seen any good movies lately??
  6:27pm Matt from Springfield:

@david: Yes, he's amazing! I don't know what more people haven't discovered this amazing personality, but those that have are HOOKED! :D
  6:27pm cheri watcher:

This should be good.
  6:27pm david:

Clay's been hitting home runs. Another great taped segment.
  6:27pm glenn:

the meat purveyors do a bluegrass version of round and round. it's pretty great.
  6:28pm Bas, NL:

I repair reel-to-reel taperecorders as a hobby..
  6:29pm Matt from Springfield:

The summaries on the playlists are usually very good, saying everything the show is about. Clay's is no exception:
"Street interviews with everyone from the homeless to the glitterati. Live call-ins, hyper-editing, original fiction, and obscure vinyl exhumation. Clay's soft-spoken ways elicit love from guests and listeners alike." The only thing missing now is "chat with other DJs"!!
  6:30pm david:

It was nice to put a voice to Matt from Springfield.
  6:31pm 3D:

As far as his musical preferences....
  6:32pm Cecile:

  6:33pm Matt from Springfield:

I once posted this on 7SD, but since everyone heard my voice:

Someone caught me at the Rally For Sanity in October. (My hair was shorter then, as I was about to head off to steamy Thailand!)
  6:33pm Matt from Springfield:

Later Cecile!
  6:34pm Matt from Springfield:

Mungo Jerry had several hits in the UK; "In The Summertime" is the only one that was a hit in the US.
  6:34pm other david:

@Matt - Clay could probably be making millions with his commercial weather voice, but... he stays on this wonderful station, that says it all :)
  6:34pm Calgary Stampeders:

You'd never have heard of us except for the Canadian content broadcasting regulations on stations like CKLW that served the US
  6:36pm Matt from Springfield:

The Year of the Cat: the prior year (1975) in Vietnamese astrology (Year of the Rabbit in Chinese and others). "Modern Times" tour, starting to become a sensation. Peter White banged out the melody on a piano, and Al made 2 attempts at fitting lyrics before he found the current lyrics.
  6:37pm david:

miami sound machine!
  6:37pm Matt from Springfield:

@other david: I think he loves it here as much as we love him here :)

Besides his "pop" hits from Time Passages, there's great historical folk rock with Alan Parsons production on that album. "Lonely Palace of Versailles", "Life in Dark Water", "The Man for All Seasons" (Yay to Julie for that!)
  6:38pm julie:

yeah man for all seasons is a great song
  6:39pm Clay:

Trying to hang in there. Dusty always suffers on these 4-hour things.
  6:39pm other david:

What worries me most about Clay though, is he's turning me on to hair metal and prog rock.

I'm quite frankly disturbed by this development.
  6:41pm Matt from Springfield:

It's funny though, Al grew up mostly in England, and has an English accent. But his singing voice has a twinge of Scottishness to it. Whereas many singers with Scottish accents sing without any particular accent (Gerry Rafferty, Liz Fraser).
  6:41pm other david:

I'll call in one day, slightly typsy tonight (hey it's nearly 12 here!) but not typsy enough to have my voice added to the archives for all eternity
  6:43pm other david:

aw, great call :D
  6:44pm Kendall!:

woooooo! Georgia Tech!
  6:44pm Matt from Springfield:

@OD: No one said that "The Magic of Clay" works in only positive ways :)

But please call--I don't call FMU shows often, but if I want to I go ahead. Next time there's a 3-6 (8-11) show with Clay, give it a try. One plus is that Clay doesn't have themes you need to stick with--just left field questions!
  6:46pm GOLLAITH:

  6:47pm Clay:

Cecile ... it's always goodbye from you. :>(
  6:47pm Good Buddy:

What, no "Convoy"?
  6:47pm Matt from Springfield:

A new triumph for FMU!
  6:48pm GOLLAITH:

  6:48pm Listener Dave From Seattle:

Wait, there is also a radio show going on?
  6:50pm other david:

  6:50pm Good Buddy:

Son, ya gonna drive me to drinkin'
If ya don't stop drivin' that Hot... Rod... Lincoln!
  6:50pm tim:

is that cackle from the record?
  6:51pm Fredericks:

Same songs as 12 years ago. Comforting and disturbing.
  6:51pm other david:

.. another Irish listener :o
  6:51pm GOLLAITH:

  6:52pm GOLLAITH:

  6:53pm other david:

  6:54pm glenn:

calgary stampeders - my fave c.f.l. team.
  6:54pm Listener Dave From Seattle:

This guy seems to forget his accent sometimes.
  6:54pm Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Liz Fraser! Rose McDowall! Jill Bryson! A LOT of your musicians!

"PAR-a-noid", "American-I-zation"! Go Scottish accents!
  6:54pm other david:

@listener dave - his voice varies from northern irish, to american, to scottish
  6:55pm Good Buddy:

If he stops posting, is he Gollaith No More?
  6:56pm Listener Dave From Seattle:

Yeah sometimes he sounds american
  6:56pm glenn:

erin go BRAA. sheesh.
  6:56pm Matt from Springfield:

@OD: I'm not that good at particular Irish accents--are you firmly Dublin-voiced, david? Or is your accent considered something different?
  6:56pm Perv:

Erin Go Braless!
  6:57pm other david:

@Matt - I'm sort of... neutral irish accent, but a bit of a Dublin twinge!
  6:57pm julie:

OD you need to call sometime
  6:57pm Dan B From Upstate:

Nothing at that school. They're all A/V kids.
  6:58pm glenn:

every erin i know has heard that at least a hundred times.
  6:58pm hamburger / london:

hey other david, do you say thirty or terrty?
  6:58pm GOLLAITH:

  6:58pm other david:

@julie - I would probably freeze!
  6:59pm 12539:

Good show, Clay (& Julie).
  6:59pm Perv:

How many Erins do you know, Mr Playa?
  6:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Ben Gay = Fun and excitement!
Hot Stax of Wax!

Good night Clay! Julie! Everyone!
...and, always remember.
  6:59pm other david:

@hamburger - for years I did not pronounce my T-H's but have made a concerted effort to improve my enunciation!
  7:00pm GOLLAITH:

  7:00pm Bas, NL:

Thanks Clay & Julie! Great show!
  7:00pm other david:

goodnight to the folks who are signing off, wonderful show :)
pleasure to chat with you all
  7:00pm glenn:

four. and platonically, yo.
  7:01pm Perv:

  7:01pm Matt from Springfield:

@OD: Goodnight! Keep that Dublin twinge, it will make you unique! :)
  7:01pm hamburger / london:

great show mr clay!

other david: only mention that cos I've heard this irish guy who has an other wise non-region specific accent apart from that th thing :)
  7:02pm depressed Persian cab driver:

All praise from myself.
  10:41am kat330:

I *fully* concur with what `other david' wrote over a year ago at 6:01pm above! You rule, Matt! Really fun interview Clay and Julie! :)
