He hosted Nikolas Schreck (a gothic rock musician and the main singer of Radio Werewolf) and Zeena LaVey on two occasions (once the spokesperson for the Church of Satan and later a priestess in the Temple of Set). They supported Satanism in their first encounter, while they defended Setianism in their second battle in 1997. Larson discussed the two and tried unsuccessfully to convert them at times. On his Talk-Back radio show, Larson discussed, interviewed, and confronted “Nazi Satanist” James Mason.
Bob Larson Ministry
Larson is a guitarist who has expressed worry about occult and destructive influences in rock music as a result of his early experiences as a musician. Later on, he would include some of his guitar playings in his lectures. Larson’s sermons in the 1960s focused mostly on leftist political ideology, sexually suggestive lyrics, Eastern religious mysticism, and the antisocial behavior of many of the era’s rock musicians.
Larson began Talk Back, a two-hour daily call-in show aimed mostly at teenagers and frequently focused on teen-oriented issues including role-playing games and rock music, in 1982. Larson had embraced modern Christian music, including heavy metal and rap, by this point, and aggressively promoted the music and musicians on his show.
Larson was frequently heard on the air executing exorcisms of callers by the late 1980s, which would come to define his subsequent ministry. Satanism and Satanic ritual abuse were frequently brought up in conversation. Glen Benton of Deicide, as well as Bob Guccione Jr., eldest son of Penthouse founder Bob Guccione and publisher of the music magazine Spin, became regular callers. Guccione Jr. paid Larson to go on tour with American thrash metal band Slayer and write about it in the 1980s.
Larson dabbled in fiction writing, with Lori Boespflug and Muriel Olson ghostwriting Dead Air in 1991. Larson’s following works Abaddon, published in 1993, and The Senator’s Agenda, published in 1995, both linked Satanic ritual abuse to political corruption; the latter was mostly authored by Larson and his second wife. Lori Boespflug, a former vice president of Bob Larson Ministries, claims that much of Dead Air is her own creation, despite the fact that it is marketed as Larson’s. A letter from Larson’s lawyer backs up these assertions, warning him of his “possible obligation to Lori,” predicting that “the role Lori has played” in Dead Air and its successors will cause her to “seek acknowledgement and/or profit share.”
Larson returned to the radio airwaves in 2004 after a two-year hiatus with a daily discussion program that was simulcast and stored on the Internet and heard on a network of radio stations. Larson is still active today. His ministry claims to provide an alternative treatment avenue for those dealing with issues such as violence, self-mutilation, multiple personality disorders, Satanic ritual abuse, or molestation.
