Hour of Slack #1506 - Onan's New Sermon Meets Lonesome Cowboy Dave

At first it's a fairly "normal" show (by Hour of Slack standards anyway). Then, seemingly out of desperation, Stang starts reading ONAN CANOBITE'S DECEMBER 2014 SERMON. For 20 minutes, the show alternates between Stang reading chunks of the great ONAN SERMON and Dave doing his patented surrealist extemporaneizing -- altogether, an excellent combo of clever writing and pure Spouting. At the climax, the worst "Bob" song in the world is played! We apologize for NOTHING!

Hour of Slack #1505 - Through the Trapdoor

"Things haven't really gotten any worse -- just YOU!" That was one of the cheery things that was said during the live part. For the first 22 minutes, however, it's a 35-track collage of everything from mean one-liners denouncing Stang to mind-blowing fake commercials by Rev. Bleepo Abernathy. (As always, see the track list at's Radio section for the endless details.) Lots of bits by LeMur, The Large, Norel pref (from the olden days) and there's even a song by Stang & Wei's grandsons! It would all be charming were it not so sick. Come to think of it, the live part delves into some pretty darned sick subjects indeed. This is one of those shows where you hear Wei say "Gross!" a lot.

Rev. Ivan Stang and Princess Wei 'R.' Doe went searching for America, and found the Salton Sea. After some great musicollage with Lemur, Timothy Leary, Rev. Bleepo Abernathy, Glassmadness, GWAR, Nenslo, ZZ Top, and The Rudy Schwartz Project, Stang and Doe describe their travel adventures to Lonesome Cowboy Dave, who responds Davishly. Subjects include a Yes Chimp for Stang, V. Swarup's audio book "Q & A", Chameleonalia, the Bone Yard in Tucson, Dave's cough, Wei's mom in Carlsbad Caverns, The Thing?, and a sick clip from John Waters reading his audiobook "Carsick." StangDoe describe The Salton Sea area in grisly detail and play a very strange location recording of animal life in remote Stang County, Texas. American Sniper and The Interview are mocked and Dr. Sinister plays a redneck. The Rudy Schwartz Project performs the Swinging Love Corpses hit song, "Pick a Booger." The strange "STANG PUKES YOU" grafitti in Japan is described. Dave rants about the end of the world and Stang rants about mispronunciations of Wei's name. Dr. Sinister analyzes Dave's protest songs, then the classic anti-religious-nut-country protest song "Kill for God" by The Rudy Schwartz Project is played.
