  Thanks for checking out this episode of The Dusty Show. It was certainly interesting to wade into the crowd in the United Nations Plaza during the UN General Assembly. I was able to learn a few things and to feel some of the passion and pain felt by those involved. It was also good to see people allowed to demonstrate vocally in public without much interference from the police.

I would also like to thank Andy Z and everyone at Revolution Books in Manhattan for their kindness and courtesy when I visited their store.

If I have any disappointments regarding this episode it is that I didn't have enough time to produce it. Also, I am unhappy with the sound quality of this show. Doing it in analog fashion on cassette machines as I do, there is always some sacrifice of audio fidelity, however, this week it seemed worse than usual, with lots of loss of high-end frequencies. I will do what I can to improve it by next week. Station Manager Ken and I had a discussion about this and the posssibility of going digital. He did admit that it might be nice to hear the improved sonic quality of digital sound on The Dusty Show. At the same time he mentioned that it would be sad to lose the warm analog aspect of the show. This is an ongoing question on my end. Whether to go digital for improved sonic quality or retain the original cassette-oriented sound. I sometimes wonder if entire passages of what people say are not being understood by listeners. I feel that way sometimes, but my ears are fried by years of high-volume music. It is also rarely mentioned by listeners so I have assumed it isn't a problem. If any of you would like to weigh-in on this, I' would be interested in your opinions.

I am often asked by listeners why I don't just go digital. It is difficult to explain my process of analog editing with cassette-based technology. And when I do, people think I am insane to go through the effort it takes to pull it off. Still, some of the techniques would be nearly impossible to recreate digitally, and so as long as there are RS-B11W's to be had and as long as I possibly can, I'll probably stay analog like the stubborn old Luddite I am.

I sincerely hope that the people of Iran can find the freedom they so desperately deserve and that each of us will speak for them when we can. The same holds true for the people of Honduras and for the practioners of Falun Da Fa in China. May the world grow more peaceful and tolerant and may the wicked change their ways.

I'd love to hear from you if you find the time. I like to know where you are listening and what's on your mind. Here's the e-mail address:


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