Glory Is Noise Episode #26 - Dog Rescue Edition w/ Al Jourgensen

Glory Featured

March 5, 2012

On a very special edition of the Glory Is Noise online radio show, host Joel Gausten welcomes his wife, canine behaviorist Shannon Gausten, and Ministry frontman Al Jourgensen for an in-depth discussion on the importance of dog rescue. The hour-long episode, which also features music from Ministry's upcoming album “Relapse” as well as Jourgensen's recently-released Buck Satan & The 666 Shooters album Bikers Welcome! Ladies Drink Free,” can be listened to below. 

Dog rescue is a long-running concern for Jourgensen, who in December of last year released a limited-edition, hand-numbered “Buck Santa Xmas Bundle” in support of Rockstar Rescue. A limited edition of 365, the bundle includes a three-song CD (signed by Jourgensen), a Ministry Xmas koozie, a Ministry Eco Shopping Bag, a Buck Satan guitar pick and other goodies. With each sale of a bundle, $7 is donated to Rockstar Rescue, who need that amount of money per dog, per day. So with each bundle, Ministry fans are supporting one dog for one day. Once all the bundles are sold, one dog will be supported for an entire year. Additionally, Al and Angie Jourgensen will do matching funds to whatever monies are raised by Ministry fans – meaning that two dogs will be supported for one year! More information on the bundle is available at

In addition to her work as a canine specialist, Shannon Gausten is a lifelong advocate of dog rescue organizations and currently oversees the operations of the dog park in her hometown of Concord, NH.

Glory Is Noise host Joel Gausten is currently coordinating the release of a special dog rescue charity single to be released later this spring. Confirmed participants in the as-yet-unnamed project include Troy Gregory (ex Prong/Flotsam And Jetsam/Swans/Killing Joke) and former Public Image Limited bassist Pete Jones. 

Glory Is Noise is a show on listener-supported Radio Free Satan. Each episode, host Joel Gausten offers an eclectic mix of music and exclusive interviews with mainstream and underground recording artists. The show’s Official Facebook Page is at
