Our friend Sister Melodious Chops rather suddenly boarded the Saucers last week, and this is an obituary show. She was more widely known, especially in the Cleveland music scene, as Vicky Ganger. Her folk trio, Victoria Ganger and Revelry, included Princess Wei ‘R.’ D’oh. Besides recordings some of the best hymns to “Bob” (and Connie), Vicky composed dozens of funny, touching, and inspirational songs, which she and the two Revelry Chicks performed at many Ohio clubs, SubGenius devivals, and especially the pagan music festivals Starwood and Winterstar. She was a treasured part of both the SubGenius and pagan weirdo communities, which overlap quite a bit in some places, and she will be sorely missed. This episode features her three “Bob” (and Connie) songs and several of her whimsical songs about modern life, especially the Internet. Also included is a Zappa medley performed by The Empire Jazz Orchestra… which is conducted by our pal Rev. Billy, a recent guest at Stang Ranch.
