HOUR OF SLACK 487, 488, 489 LOGS

For the 10 year history of The Hour of Slack radio ministry, I've been telling myself, "I know what I should do. I should type up the log of each show on DISK as soon as I finish 'em. Then I'd have a wondrous master list I could access by computer using word-search when it comes time to produce our BIG ALBUMS." But the decks are on the other side of the factory from the computer, and consequently, for 486 weeks, I've instead been handwriting the logs on cassette box "J-cards" in tiny, cramped Stangian shorthand readable only by me. BUT WHY NOT CHANGE EVERYTHING NOW?? Maybe if you non-listeners had an inkling of what was being broadcast show by show, more of you would become SHOW-AGENTS pestering your local hipster college/indie radio stations to CARRY this CHEAP, CHEAP SYNDICATED MIND CONTROL OUTREACH. Of course, the mere log gives you ONLY one or two inklings.

If you read these logs, it'll be ALMOST AS IF you had ACTUALLY LISTENED to the SHOWS! Oh yeah.

FRIENDS -- SAVE YOURSELVES the $6.50/cassette and TALK YOUR LOCAL COLLEGE PUNK HIPPIE WEIRDO STATION INTO CARRYING THIS SHOW for only $5 a week station-pay, and YOU CAN TAPE IT AND BOOTLEG THESE RARE RECORDINGS TO YOUR GLANDS' CONTENTS! You'll get your excretions' worth; while the peculiarly crazed old bulldada songs, or the straightforward Stang-rants, make for "light" or "one-brain" amusement, other sections of The Hour of Slack, such as the segments copped from Dr. Howll's and Puzzling Evidence's shows, will keep all FOUR of your brains quite busy indeed. You thought The Firesign Theater required your COMPLETE, RAPT ATTENTION in order to comprehend? Well, the far portions of your mind(s) will be forced through an even more thorough workout by THESE EVIL TAPES.

We like to think our productions are "demanding."
