Hour of Slack #1308 - The Agent & Mr. Dobbs Pts. 2 and 3 - plus Firesign Rarities


IMPORTANT NOTE: "1308" (much like 1306 amd 1301.3 before it) practically 'spells' "BOB" if glanced at from a distance. "Coincidence -- or, COINCIDENCE?" -- Dr. Legume

An unusual episode! One third is Stang reading from "The Agent and Mr. Dobbs," Parts 2 and 3, a top-secret manuscript from 1962 that was supplied to us by Rev. Teeters LaVerge. Another third is priceless, rare recordings of our inspirators, The Firesign Theatre, from their 1970 Radio Hour Hour, only recently unearthed for the book/DVD set called DUKE OF MADNESS MOTORS. Unless you have that book/DVD set, or are an elderly Californian, you have not heard these particular Firesign pieces. (Notice that Phil Austin, in his TV Guide take-offs, mentions both "Bob" and X-Day -- in 1970!) The rest includes strangely pertinent songs (new to us) by Girl Talk, Laibach and Tom Smith, and some extreme oldies by Puzzling Evidence (from 1979, BEFORE his radio show) and Einstein's Secret Orchestra live with Stang and Lonesome Cowboy Dave at the Starwood Pufferdome in 1999.

We-Slack (aka W-SLACK)
Nonstop streaming of all SubGenius shows! -- past and present, hosted by Rev. SlanderBob:

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 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.
