Hour of Slack #1442 -- SubG Camp at Burning Man (Rerun of #752, Sept. 2000)


In the year 2000, we must have had a lot more time for editing audio documentaries, because this is one TIGHT mix of location recordings from Burning Man 2000 (with Burners and Rangers Dr. Hal, Puzzling Evidence, Dr. Philo Drummond, Ray Hey and others) -- interwoven with Stang's rather excited reports on it as blurted afterwards on WCSB's ESO Swamp Radio to Lonesome Cowboy Dave, host Chas Smith, and caller Rev. Ed Strange. Not only was this Stang's first trip to Burning Man but also one of the first digitally-edited Hours of Slack (as opposed to cassette-mastered shows of the 1980s and 1990s). The stereo recordings are pretty evocative. We went back to BM in 2001 with Princess Wei, and that was the last time for everone but Dr. Hal, who alone is still a BM fixture. We would still love to do Burning Man again but the logistics of our own festivals, X-Day and Starwood, and the costs, have made that unlikely. Thus we are thinking globularly but acting loco-ly.

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.
