Hour of Slack #1571 - Godzilla's Travels

Lonesome Cowboy Dave was sick, so this is a Daveless live show, with Rev. Stang reading cool stuff such as a great rant by The Good Rev. Roger, and more of the juicy parts from Gulliver's Travels (1726). Also featured is music by and a discussion about the recent Sanza music CD of Halim "Pharoah" El-Dabh and Ron "Pyrosonic" Slabe. Instead of Dave and Stang blabbering, it's Dr. Hal and Dr. Drummond from an old Puzzling Evidence show. The music however is all new from The Fantastic Plastics, The Rudy Schwartz Project, The Psycho Skeletons, Rev. Jimmy Ryan and Rural War Room. The RWR pieces especially will rip your head in twain if you listen in headphones or brainbuds.

Hour of Slack #1570 - Gulliver's Travels - The Dirty Parts

Rev. Stang reads selections from Gulliver's Travels -- the passages in which Gulliver needs to go to the bathroom, but the bathrooms are all either too small or too large. Lonesome Cowboy Dave provides his own insights into the great Jonathan Swift novel of 1726. Stangs gets all worked up about Trump and the value of boredom. First, though, there's a great rant by Rev. Susie the Floozie about "Bob," "Bob" hymns by Rev. Bleepo Abernathy and Mark Mothersbaugh, two count 'em two new Rudy Schwartz Project pieces, Jimmy Ryan guitar, and some discussion of haters by Dr. Philo Drummond and Dr. Hal on The Puzzling Evidence Show.

Hour of Slack #1569 - Southern Spoutin's in Slangs

First live show from WCSB in six months! The Daves and StangDoes invent several new languages, partially inspired by the book "Southern Sayin's for Yankees and Other Immigrants." Before that, however, there is an amazing collage by Rev. Susie the Floozie about "Bob" and Connie, and new music is unveiled by The Rudy Schwartz Project (covering The Shaggs!!!), Rev. Jimmy Ryan and Rural War Room, plus a brand new "Bob" hymn by Rev. Morgan Gutentag. There are also some cold, wet sound effects and a canned recording from Stang Ranch about the Stang Ranch dinosaur tracks and what other creatures may be leaving footprints in those parts.

Hour of Slack #1568 - Lonesome Cowboy Dave In Space

Back in 1994, Hour of Slack came from Dallas, but we used a lot of material recorded whenever Rev. Stang visited Cleveland and sat in on the late Chas Smith's show, "ESO Radio/Brain Rot Theater" on WCSB. One of the best chunks of one of the best of those shows, "Lonesome Cowboy Dave in Space," comprises the majority of this. Many listeners thought it was SCRIPTED! What was scripted however was the intro to the show, detailing the truly dire deadlines and circumstances of The SubGenius Foundation at that time. Also includes music from Nenslo, The Rudy Schwartz Project and Doktorz 4 "Bob".

Hour of Slack #1567 - Lonesome Cowboy Dave In Hell

We're busy packing to move the Bulldada Time Control Labs back to Cleveland Bluffs for the summer, so it's (still) rerun time. Luckily, this particular rerun is one of the best of the 1990s ESO/SubGenius live radio collaborations, from ESO Swamp Radio on WCSB Cleveland. Chas Smith still had his life, and his original band, and you hear them playing along musically with wherever Stang and Lonesome Cowboy Dave go -- which was primarily to Hell and back. It is a torturous route, but it has a happy ending: Dave saves the world, and Chas covers a Residents classic.

Hour of Slack #1566 - Stang Ranch Special

Our first show recorded and mixed at the Dokstok Mountain studios in the 9th MegaFisTemple Lodge at Stang Ranch, Stangsville, Stang County, Texas. In fact, all of this show except for the credits -- and the music -- was recorded outdoors. The music is all new: a fresh and topical "Bob" hymn by Dr. Morgan Gutentag, two truly horrifying cover songs by The Rudy Schwartz Project (from the new CD "Sunshine Supershits"), two from Rev. Jimmy Ryan and a wild instrumental by The Psycho Skeletons. The ranch location recordings feature fossil discoveries, bone wars, and the debuts of the Stang Ranch Goats and the StangDoe grandchildren.

Hour of Slack #1565 - Live Time Control Show ( from 2006)

A cosmic and lively live show from late 2006, with Lonesome Cowboy Dave in the WCSB studio with StangDoe and a movie score (THE TIME MACHINE). The convoluted discussion involves speculation on identity, time travel, and the nature of belief and religion. HEAVY STUFF! Lots of collages by LeMur and Rev. Norel Pref. Hopefully this will be the last of the old reruns; next up is a new show produced entirely outdoors at Stang Ranch.
