Make reference to New Jersey's Passaic River in casual conversation and odds are the talk will quickly turn to tales of dead bodies. And it's true: many dead bodies have been found in the dirty New Jersey river which has a more than a justified reputation for dumped corpses surfacing on its polluted surfaces or along it's grungy river banks. In fact just this past weekend the body of a fatally shot Jersey City man was discovered in bordering Newark Bay. And that body was just the latest in a long line of corpses found on the Passaic or in the nearby vicinity.
Besides dead bodies, plastic bottles, shredded styrofoam, used condoms, syringes, and just about any other floatable disposable discarded objects you can think of can be seen pass by on the polluted Passaic. Although as X-Ray Burns points out in the interview above, the notoriously dirty Jersey river is not as chronically polluted as it once was. On Friday, September 9th's 3pm to 6pm live remote broadcast from the banks of the Passaic in the town of Kearny hometown native X-Ray Burns, as well as the Two Marks from Weird NJ magazine, and Passaic River adventurerWheeler Antabanez will be among those sharing gritty tales of Dirty Jersey in a show aptly titled "Dirty Jersey: Throw the needle in the River."
