Hour of Slack #1447 - DEVO Cover Bands & "Bob" (Rerun of #753)


This is a rerun of a show from 2000, inspired by the then-recent first DEVOtional Day of Atonement event, held in Akron that year. Many rare DEVO clips are featured along with interesting (to say the least) covers of their work. A classic ESO radio show is strung throughout, and a Puzzling Evidence show from the Day is likewise scavenged, as is a Cleveland devival. Some songs come from a compilation by blnkrboy and some come from Mike Water's collection of DEVO covers.

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.
