The official date of Robigalia is April 25th! That's when the Romans made sacrifices to please Robigus, the ancient god of mildew. Sure that sounds ridiculous to you modern-day Slackfux--but a few thousand years ago, mildew (in the form of a botanical blight called "rust") could take out most of the growing grain and plunge a whole town into famine, so it made sense to have a festival honoring this fucker. The highlight of Robigalia was the sacrifice of a red puppy, which would hopefully appease this moldy demigod and pay him off to keep his goddamned mitts off their crops.

That landmark is certainly noteworthy enough...but this show celebrated another major event. Last week I played BSTF #117, but this week's episode is a hundred shows before that--this is the ancient BSTF #17 from 1994, and the week before it aired, Richard Nixon had finally croaked, sending delighted shudders through my entire being.

With a double-barreled musical assist by Oingo Boingo, a psychedelic wonder called "Loose Lip Sync Ships" by the Hogs, the Theme from GREEN SLIME by Charles Fox...and a very, VERY surprising turn by Evil Susie at show's end, one that struck me harder than one of her skillet blows. What the FUCK. Now I'm afraid to be left alone with her...
