We record two live Hours of Slack each day at the X-Day Drills, and this is the second one from the first day, with Rev. Baby Bear taking Slot 3 of the 3-slot Tarzan's Radio Station "studio" -- which is on a picnic table in an outdoor café at Wisteria Community campground. This particular episode sounds more like normal radio because we were deliberately being stupid with "jock radio sound effects" like whistles and squeak-dildoes. Baby Bear and Hal try to be upbeat despite Stang's constant dour doomsayings and criticisms; nonetheless, it is a real nerd-out, with endless asides about old TV shows, comic books, and gaming. The discussion occasionally rises to lofty peaks, only to be immediately dragged down into the mud repeatedly. TYPICAL! One saving grace of this episode is that it has really gorgeous background music, from the coolest of sources. We're still hard at work organizing and editing the recordings of ranters and bands, but those will be forthcoming in good time.
