Rerun of the long-lost #38, with a Men In Black theme (NOT the movie franchise!)... but at the beginning we announce: THE MOVIE IS OUT! Sandy K. Boone's J.R. "Bob" Dobbs and The Church of the SubGenius" is on Amazon, YouTube, Apple TV, Vudu and others ($4 pay-per-view). As for this old show... there's some crazy-ass ranting and collages, and media-barraging, and callers. Lots of G. Gordon Gordon, Young Stang, Buck Naked, and many, many Dallas radio preachers and kooks of the early 1980s.

Stang was laid up from a minor back injury for a whole week, so this is another rerun -- but it is one of the WEIRDEST episodes ever. In 1986 Stang was having fun doing crazy sound effects mixes on a 4-track reel-to-reel deck, partly inspired by Negativland's groundbreaking third album, "A Big 10-8 Place." Half this show is that very album. The other half is Stang's nutty mixes, including a crude "radio play" improvised on location in the wilds of Stang Ranch by Stang and his six-year-old son Xandy, with sound effects and music mixed in later. Xandy and Daddy must fight monsters and find the lost SubGenius colony on Planet Palenquedu, using the Show as a weapon. This episode, like Negativland's album, was produced especially to be heard in stereo headphones and without distractions for utmost "trippy" effect. (Ironically, the now one-eared Rev. Stang can no longer enjoy it that way!) There's also some Puzzling Evidence radio show, Pope Sternodox and doktor-music.

"Having listened back to this episode, closely, for the first time in decades, I must say that we must in fact have been TOTALLY AND UTTERLY TRIPPING BALLS THE WHOLE TIME." -- Rev. Ivan Stang, October 2020

Be that as it may, this early episode exploited Dr. G. Gordon Gordon and a great deal of the SubGenius album called Media Barrage 10, an editing tour-de-force thanks to St. Byron Werner, Puzzling Evidence, Hellpope Huey, DEVO, Dr. Philo Drummond, and others. There are two suites by The Swinging Love Corpses near the end that are just jaw-dropping if not jaw-amputating.

Remember, there are detailed "lyrics sheets" and logs of show content for each episode on our website in the Radio/HoS area. Just click on a show title for a close look at its innards.
