Hour of Slack #1741 - Is Your Face on Fire?


Almost the next-to-last live Hour of Slack from WCSB Cleveland, as Stang/Doe are nearing their final move to Texas; this caused Stang to become quite sentimental. Killer new or revised tunes by Liberty Tubes (St. Andrew the Impaled's "That Ain't Cool Man"), John Shirley ("Pigzipper"), and The Slot Rods ("Night of the Living Tiki") preface an unusually honest live conversation with Lonesome Caller Dave. There is a long discussion about the late Rudy Ray Moore and other heroes of yore.

5 Credits and Stang rant 06:47
Stang (possibly a bit, er, emotional) gets all serious and verklempt and reminds everybody to tell their loved ones that they are loved, and tells several folks, and Cleveland and WCSB in general, that he loves them. First-ever call from a False Dave! Describes John Shirley's psychedelic science fiction books.

9 WCSB live 8-18-19 38:07
Credits for Rev. Angry Larry/Dave Taylor. Stang gets all seriously emotional and verklempt again about how lucky he feels to have so many great friends -- and update about moving to Texas for good. This is the end of Stang living in Cleveland. Fond memories of Chas Smith's great WCSB show Swamp Radio and band Einstein's Secret Orchestra, radio plays of Dave and Psychopathfinder. Homage to Chas, WCSB, and listeners. The wonders of being live compared to canned shows. Dave calls in as Stang's translator. Stang reads vivid fan mail to Dave about NEIGHBORWORLD by Rev. Watt de Falk. Dave's review of Watt de Falk's review. Stang found a New Age music CD by "Doug Smith" --clones of Doug Stang. Being busted by Facebook and being Doug instead of Ivan. Telling a person if their face is on fire, or not wearing any pants. Whatevs. BG music by Mayan Ruins, Christian Hartman. Stang expresses his appreciation for listeners letting us USE YOU. You let us have our ways with the holes in your head. We enjoyed putting things into your holes. New BG music: He Himself. Sounds like 1980s John Carpenter Casio synth score. Stang admires John Carpenter as director/composer. Nancy Collins and John Carpenter and SubG. We sent stuff to Stephen King, Philip Jose Farmer, and Philip K. Dick -- who died! And L. Ron Hubbard! And Bill Hicks! L. Ron Hubbard and Stang not in competition. We're an inoculation against cultish fanboy behavior. Stang is a nerd sci fi comic book geek fanboy. But the Church is here to free all enchained butts from their chains! Like Danaeris on G.o.T. George Clinton did better than the Church did. We sing the praises of the giants upon whose shoulders we squat! Such as RUDY RAY MOORE! Rant about "DOLEMITE IS MY NAME." Moore recorded some great albums in his apartment. Stang could mimic Rudy Ray Moore but can't in public because of uptightness about race in this country. Eddie Murphy might redeem himself. Rudy Ray Moore's low-budget movie. His albums are genius but super dirty. He's dead but Stang got to work with him on the unfinished video game DUELIN' FIREMEN. Ed Wood, Palmer Rockey and Stang's announcement that Rockey's "SCARLET LOVE" is again going to be available on a DVD! Rockey is the Ivan Stang of bad filmmaking! Rockey's wife COOKIE ROCKEY, according to the guy writing the book about Dallas badfilm, mentioned "Ivan Stang" several times! But it's 10 pm, Dave's bra is chafing, the dogs are lonesome, Dave needs to oil his parts. Music: He Himself. We all have to go! Where's Synaesthesia? Dave leaves. Ads for Church of SubGenius. Forgot to duck? Excrecitement! The horror of flatulence retention! The zen of terror! subgenus.com

NOTE: THE HOUR OF SLACK is released in two versions.

The X-RATED "INTERNET VERSION" contains all original "fucks," "shits," "God damns," etc., and this is the one which is downloadable from SubSITE and which is sent to individual subscribers OR non-American radio stations.

All American radio stations (except WORT, Madison) are sent the "PG RATED CENSORED VERSION," which has the Bad Words either reversed, bleeped, or replaced with the spoken word "Bob", depending on what works best.

The Church of the SubGenius Radio Ministry seeks to brainwash you totally into abject lifelong subservience to The High Epopt and Living SlackMaster, J. R. "Bob" Dobbs, BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.
