The Dusty Show with Clay Pigeon | WFMU

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!

British Sea Power - "Fear of Drowning" - The Decline of British Sea Power [In my mind, I am sucking at this point. Tanking hard. On this particular show I am playing a few things I am not neccesarily "sold" on, I like all the tracks on some level, but I am trying to push myself out of my comfort zone ... only to find I MISS my comfort zone. Where is my .38 Special song. Survivor song? Aerosmith Live Bootleg? I nixed those ideas early on. Not one damned clicky star for this. Not one stinking clicky star. Clicky stars can shove themselves!]

Thanks for listening to this episode of The Dusty Show on WFMU. I have gotten more than a little bit lax with the archives lately. not keeping up week to week. I have perhaps even a little shoddiness to enter into the showmaking itself and I am sorry about that. I could tell you how busy I have been, but then, I am sure you have been, too. So .. I appreciate your patience and your continued listenership. I felt bad about this show when it was over, but perhaps I am too hard on myself. I wish that I had some street interviews for you, but I couldn't seem to get it together. Even wandered around Grand Central Station in a stupor, unable to mustre sufficient strength or courage to interview people. It can be difficult. I'm sure it's not something I won't overcome soon. In the meantime, I do hope you'll continue to tune in and to call in and participate. As far as the morning show, I have no idea what will transpire, but we shall roll with it one way or the other. I would like Dusty to continue. It's important to me and so are YOU. You groovy listener, you! See ya next week. O'Pidgeness 5.18.17 Chris Cornell died. That sucks! He was cool front man, great pipes, handsome dude. I wanted to be him sometimes. WHo wouldn't. But now he is gone. No one gets out alive. Carpe Diem. Resist! Love to you and ALL persons.

Thanks for listening to this show. I have mixed emotions about it. On one hand it was wild and free, but I didn't have the goods altogether to make it transcend. Too much BS talk without substance. I was burnt out and unable to speak with Fabio effectively. All in all, a rather embarrassing outing for me, but I suppose I will never have the maturity and dignity I wish I had. I bite heads off chickens. The jester. I cry the tears of a clown. Love you all. xxoo KCRNYC99

Thanks for listening to this episode of The Dusty Show on WFMU. I have enjoyed the last shows, just playing music and talking, taking some calls. I especially enjoyed the first part of this show ... playing pretty music and making up poetry and stuff. I don't have time to write more now. Getting ready for next week;s Wake N Bake Morning Shows. I will be on 6-9am Eastern Monday-Friday April 10-14. Hope you can tune in. Remembering Don Rickles tonight, the great comedian. I was always a fan of his. I loved him. He taught me a lot about being caustic and caring at the same time. I saw him in LAs Vegas circa 1976 with Vic Damone at The Sahara. Unreal. I am so glad I did. RIP great one. You were and will always be sensational.

Clay and Bronwyn c
Thanks for a great week you guys! I appreciate your pledges, and if you couldn't pledge, I ain't mad at ya. I really enjoyed being on with Bronwyn. She was great! It's also nice to do the Dusty show when I have been focusing so much energy on the Wake and Bake auditions. I hope you have been checking out both. Wake and Bake is a big challenge for me, technologically, musically, logistically. I love radio, though, and I am not getting any younger. I felt as if I had to go for it. 3 hours is more than 1. Whatever happens, we'll still get together and hear some music and some voices. I appreciate your reading this, your listening, your support, and radio friendship. Hope things are well with you in your world. We all have challenges, no doubt. But we are strong. We are Dusty! Always remember. CP nycsnodei3141799

Thanks for listening to this episode of The Dusty Show of WFMU. I came into this show SO completely unprepared I was mildly panicked. Then when Fabio said he couldn't stick around I was really worried, but the listeners, the callers, the in-studio guests, really carried the day and it ended up being a fun show. You know, I would be HAPPY just to play that wonderful music and not bury it under phone calls, but I am supposed to have a "talk" oriented show, so I feel as if I can't play too much music or it's breaking the rules. Not that there are many rules at FMU. Anyway ... I love all the music that was played and I hope you seek it out in some uninterrupted form. ------- I will be on the air next Monday and Tuesday, Feb 27th and 28th, from 6 to 9AM Eastern, as I continue to audition for the new WFMU Wake N Bake Morning Show. I am one of three finalists so I am very excited about possibly having the opportunity to be on 5 days a week, full-time. If you think I should get the job, please let WFMU know what you think. I appreciate your support. Keep your fingers crossed for me. The competition is very talented and tough. OK. Better get to work here. Thanks for listening. Hope you are doing well. Call the show sometime! Take care and ... always remember. I think I gorgot to say that at the end of this week's show. Happens sometimes. Happy Anniversary Kirsten! Eight wonderful years together. I love you! Love you, too, listeners. You are the absolute best of the best. Let's stick together! CP NYC 2/23/17 99

Thanks for listening to this episode of the Dusty Show where I finally, in listening to this show at a later date, have concluded that the talking over the records has gotten out of hand. I am in near manic territory on this episode. Kind of a painful listen, really. Still, some seemed to enjoy it, and the comment count was high, as it might be after a trainwreck or hyena act. At any rate, I am still in the running for the morning show and I really hope to get that gig. I am on Mondays and Tuesdays from 6-9am Eastern for the next few weeks through marathon. If you would like to hang out in the mornings, please let the station know how you feel. I hate asking. It's embarrassing. But, your support makes a difference in this instance, and so I thank you in advance. Regardless of how the morning show thing works out, I am glad we can share radio moments together on the Dusty Show and despite the logistical challenges, it's still a stone gas to do each week. Must run. SO much to do. Getting older. No time to waste. Love. Peace. Courage. Unity. ClayP 99 2/24/17NYC

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

Live w/Fabio Taking Calls - A Farewell ton President Obama from Jan 19, 2017

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 20:15:53 -0500

Hello Dusty SHow listener! Admittedly, over the holidays I have gotten behind with my playlists. I have been VERY busy with work, and planning the morning shows. If you don't know, I am trying out for the morning host position on WFMU from 6-9AM M-F. I am excited about the possibility of being on five days a week, but the competition is very, very good. So, we'll see. If you think it's a good idea, please tell the station you think so. I'd appreciate it. ------Weird times in the USA, eh? As a "quasi" journalist, it's a bit scary to see the venom aimed at the press and to wonder if our First Amndment rights will stand against this administration. Trump is moving quickly and harshly in many directions. A troublesome sign. Hopefully we will remain strong in the face of this. Something we have not seen on these shores before. ---- So, it's Tuesday night 1/24/17 as I am writing this. Better get busy on the next show. Thank you so much for listening! Always remember ... CPNYC11799

It was really fun for me to play some songs and announce them live in the control roo, I hope you liked it. Write me and let me know what opinions you have regarding the show and any future things you would like me to try. Your opinions are valuable to me. Well, it's late I need some sleep.

A Distortion of Imagination by C. Pigeon from Nov 24, 2016

Thu, 24 Nov 2016 19:39:12 -0500

The Dusty Show
Set: A Distortion of Imagination. Story and music by C. Pigeon
I had written this story in one sitting a couple of months back. I even re-wrote it, which is rare for me, hoping to give it more cohesion and less flowery language. I tried it in an American accent, but ended up defaulting to my preferred fake English accent, which I'm sure some find annoying. I get it. Admittedly, I ended up airing this because I was not going to be at the station for Thanksgiving (thanks Mary Wing for filling in!) and I had nothing prepared. So, I remembered this story and decided to air the original version. It's weird. Sometimes I hear a story and I think it's funny or pretty good, and then I can hear it the next day and it sounds like the worst thing ever. I know this story is not developed very well, is ALL over the place, and is probably a massive chore to sit through. It touches on a lot of the themes I like. Death, redemption, crows, corn, midwestern settings, men, women, cars, heaven, hell, etc. I wish it was better. The fact that NO ONE said a damn word about it pretty much tells me it sucked for the listeners, but I feel there is something in it that makes it worthwhile. THen again, I am biased, so it is probably a piece of self-indulgent crap. At any rate, here it is. Thanks for listening. Always remember.

One of the Worst Dusty Shows Ever from Oct 20, 2016

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 20:18:28 -0400

Gown - "Taylor's Jam" - For The Maples [Intro music] Set: Opening Comments I had intended to do a live show with Fabio, but he was very ill and couldn't hang around. At that point, I had to choose between airing a new story I had written which is like, 57-minutes long, or going live. Going live for me, since I don't do it frequently, is a hit-or-miss proposition. On this episode I pretty much missed by a country mile. Nervous, fake, annoying ... these adjectives work. Set: Early Callers Set: I Probably Have Seen Network, Actually, but not Recently Set: David and I Sing Rock 'N Robin, one of my Least Favorite Songs! Set: Some Stupid Jack Reacher Comments Set: Unneccesary Singing I spelled that wrong. Right? Set: Weak Neil Young Parallel Set: New Brunswick Pride Set: I Feel Bad That I Encouraged That Young Man To Say "I Don't Like America." I hear a certain mania happening. The nervousness makes me try too hard. Need to relax. Arbies tanking. Confidence eroded. Elvis Presley - "Unchained Melody" - Unchained Melody [Love this. Elvis on piano.] Set: Trump "Rigged" Audio Courtesy of NBC Set: Fredericks of New Port Richey I felt like I was impolite to Fredericks. In the hour format, I struggle with wanting to cram as much entertainment value as I can in that 60-minutes. When there is casual conversation, the pace of it, the slowness, the meandering, it makes me anxious. Something great, something outrageous, something poignant, needs to happen NOW and frequenty, or it feels like failure. I have difficulty listening in this state, because I am accelerating ahead to the NEXT moment coming up. The present is disposable. There is only 10-seconds from now. All that matters. Set: Millennials Influence (There is No WAY I Spelled that Right. Set: I Need More Gage Set: Annoying Backstory in Fake Radio Voice (Grade F) Broadcast Low for Me. Linda Ronstadt refers to my second radio job at WOKF in CLearwater, FL. We had an automation system that used the Drake-Chenault reel-to-reel system of categorizing and programming music. Drake Chenault. Look that up. Early computerized programming. Set: Trump From C-Span Set: A Call From Tugboat Richey - Great Man Dusty In Trough - Future Unclear - Please Pledge to SILENT FUNDRAISER! OMG I am so far BEHIND! Set: Joe Padgett Not sure why I totally lapsed into the fake DJ voice. Truth is, I don't know who I am on the radio. Me does not exist. There is only fear and elation. Exhilaration and Angst. The people on this show are fine, but a poor performance, an alienating performance, by me. So tempted to erase this show from the archives, but ... as Fabio says ... Strength Through Failure. I hope he is right. Set: Clint Eastwood Reference Set: Dump Him! p u r e m a n i a Set: Grateful Dead Moment Set: The 95 Summer Tour Set: Ping Pong Memory Improv Slipknot - "Pulse of the Maggots" - Subliminal Versus Vol. 3 Set: I Just Reached Over and Shut It OFF!

Not that they aren't there, because they certainly are, but because I am visuallyb trying to identify them as they pass by at up to 6 mph, often grim-faced and angry looking.

Now in our 11th year. It was nice to see so many comments this week. You know I like to see the good numbers. I suppose I am insecure. I feel like revealing a bit of the process that goes into making a "recent" Dusty Show. Here's how it's been going in recent months. Step 1 - After work, I go to either Union Square Park, Madison Square Garden/Penn Station, Bryant Park, or Grand Central Station and I attempt to gather about 9 to 11 decent-lengthed interviews. I record them to my cell phone. I try to get a good mix of male/female, younger/older, Dem/Repub/Indie, etc. However, usually I end up a little male-heavy, older-heavy, and Dem-heavy. I actually hve to kind of "profile" people to try and single-out who I belive might be Trump voters. Dems are easy to spot by their clothes. So, most times the recording process goes fairly smoothly. Sometimes it is a very fast process if I "get on a roll." Sometimes it is like pulling teeth and I am recording for two-and-a-half hours or more. Know that, in the not too distant past on Dusty (when I was unemployed for a long stretch) I used to spend 4 solid nights-a-week working on shows. This was when I used to do everything on microcassette and a dual cassette deck with vinyl. God, that sounds romantic. I tottaly sold OUT! Got a day job, honed my show production time down to one grinding 15-hour session. went digital (mostly), and create Dusty on a laptop. Acually, I never WAS an analog purist. Not really. I like the old gear, the great sound, the wax, the album covers ... but I like didge, too. It's all in what you DO with it, y'know/? Didge is even more of a challenge because of the endless[...]

While en route to a scheduled performance at the Jackson County Fair in Minnesota, Bill Chase died at the age of 39 in the plane crash of a chartered twin-engine Piper Twin Comanche in Jackson, Minnesota. Also killed, along with the pilot and a female companion, were keyboardist Wally Yohn, drummer Walter Clark, and guitarist John Emma."] Set: Trump and the Baby - Audio courtesy of AP I lean a little too heavily on soundbytes during this episode.

Pretty callous to be carrying on as I did during this song.

Should be fun, though I already feel my social anxieties kicking in. Much easier to be on the radio than face-to-face with people sometimes. So, the politics continues, to the chagrin of some in the audience, and happily for others. As for me, I get sick of it sometimes. Literally. Inundated. Saturated. With politics. It's so horrible. But, at this point I see no choice but to continue. Until the election. And then .... never again. Onward. Glad you are with me, whoever you are. I appreciate your comments and emails.

The mosquitoes are biting. The zika-infested sunzabitches are biting and it's not even June. I am sitting here with the hood of my hoodie pulled over my head, just to give the mosquitoes less skin-access. Still they swarm and bite. Atleast bats love them. Something has to. ------ 2:13am, I am starting to nod. Can't keep my eyes open. If I had a comment about this show, it would be that I have started to feel the irritation of some listeners concerning the sameness of recent episodes. I get it. The shows ARE very samey . All I can say is, I have been enjoying the formula, or, at least, I am comfortable with it. Admittedly, the last couple of Wednesdays as I have hoofed it up to Grand Central, I have asked myself ... "Why are you doing this? Why the relentless election-related shows, week after week ... the same questions .... same venue ... and again I must say ... I don't know why. I only know that I have felt the need to continue. I like it. The politix. The election. The people. The candidates. ------ Funny story. The other night I walked down to Union Square Park to so some interviews. To try and recapture a past vibe. Just talk some generalities with people. Only when I got there, I couldn't do it. I froze up. No confidence. Now, only within the walls of GRand Central, with all its hustle and bustle, can I walk up to a stranger and say, "Can I ask you a question for my radio show on WFMU in Jersey City?" Of course, two times out of three, I'll get th[...]

It's disappointing in that I worked hard to finish the show - but still good that we got to talk about Prince for a little while. In hindsight, I should have archived the political show I had recorded, and I should have taken calls all hour with Fabio. If you are reading this in the future, this was a strange day because Prince died. Threw a wrench into everything. If you're interested, the last ten minutes of the show that never aired have now been attached to the end of the archived episode. Thanks to JEff Moore at FMU for the technical assistance. RIP Prince - a fabulous, influential, gifted, forward-thinking artist who made a big impact on my life and on the lives of millions of others. So OVER the rock star death this year. Enough! Always remember ...

Thank you for listening to this episode of TDS. Or, maybe you are just reading this playlist and you never even listened to the show at all. Or, you're not even reading this at all. Whatever the case, this was another in a series of programs with interviews recorded at Grand Central Station. I've been allowing the show to be very "samey" in recent weeks, by design. I have enjoyed the formulaic approach. Anyway ... I hope things are well with you wherever you are. This year is just rocketing by. Already April. Well, it's late. Be well, Dusty Listener.
