The SubGenius Hour of Slack Podcast
The Church of the SubGenius Weekly Radio Ministry

THIS EPISODE IS TOTALLY INEBRIATED! We weren't, NECESSARILY, when we assembled this show in August of the so-called year "2003," but the episode itself is WAY high. The mad audio mutator, Mr. Fernandinande LeMur, was on a real tear then, as were we of the ESO Swamp Radio Show on WCSB in Cleveland. That was Prof. Chas Smith's show, which became the aptly named Brain Rot Radio Theater during the sections with Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Rev. Stang. and Princess Wei. Other arteests represented include DJ Pooh and Mistah Grimm, Lump5, Phineas Narco, Puzzling Evidence Show with Philo Drummond and Dr. Hal, Elvis Hitler, NOFX, Heart Ignition, CD Truth, The Streets, and "jarto." All in all this is one of our nuttier shows. One might be hard pressed to see how this material intersects with a sober subject like "Bob" Dobbs and the Church of the SubGenius.

On Feb. 24, "2018," the podcast called Project Archivist had SubGenius Sacred Scribe Rev. Ivan Stang on for a second time as a guest, and this episode of Hour of Slack is just a straight copy of their show, which can be found at

There's some talking, then a media barrage by Cool Hand Chris, then a lot more talking, then a song by Walkenhorst and Porter. Don't bother us with questions, we're busy as hell!

This is one of the best SubGenius radio show episodes ever made and it's not an Hour of Slack! It's Episode #51 of Rev. Susie the Floozie's "Bob's" Slack Time Funhouse, originally broadcast on WREK-Atalanta in 1994. Susie is the greatest audio collage editor of all time, and this is one of her best mixes. It's got EVERYTHING! In it's ORIGINAL FORM, yet! (You'll see what we mean, take our word for it!) There must be hundreds of separate tracks and cuts, expertly woven together by Susie, and interspersed with her amazingly delivered rants and lots of very rare, very weird music. And all of it INSANELY DOBBS-CENTRIC!

New media barrages from Cool Hand Chris! A new "Bob" quote! A killer rant by Prof. Pressure (albeit delivered by Rev. Stang)! The Woody Woodpecker theme!  A Steppenwolf cover! The horror of "Bob" Dobbs and the terrible secret of the "free Membership Pack." The Fear of the Backside, and what it really means when a person decides that everyone else is a Backside. Lonesome Cowboy Dave's parenting advice! IT'S ALL HERE!

This is like the rerunniest show we ever done run! It was assembled around 2002 like a Frankenstein's monster from our favorite clips, extracted with great care out of the vast hoard of universally favorite SubGenius albums and tapes made since 1980. This one truly preserves, like flies in amber, the old-timers of the Church at their ostensible best in the first two decades of our mighty radio outreach -- before the brain damages and rheumatism set in. It's so dense that we shall just post the log here, below. (NOTE: The broadcast version is only one hour long and has no cussing; this Internet version is almost 80 minutes!)

Typical recent "live" show with atypical music by The Rudy Schwartz Project, The Psycho Skeletons, Lothar and the Hand People, and The Rainmakers; includes a doomful old rant about the Masonic Conspiracies by Stang. Then it's yakdada all the way down. Soviet chimps in the suburbs; goodbad badfilm movies; Stang's strap-on toads; sensitive snowtard bloggers; farting in the sweat lodge; Young KimCarl Jung and Punk Freud; Cicus Apocalypse versus the baby weiners; build the Wall between Heaven and Hell and make Hell pay for it; escapee angels; fossil Devil Toenails; Onan and the Fappers; rampant Rectalism.

There are SubGenius radio shows besides The Hour of Slack. The Puzzling Evidence Show and "Bob's" Slack Time Funhouse have been on air for as long or longer, and there have been other spinoffs that went extinct. But now there is a new, powerful podcast, one that erupted like a pustule out of the Thorazine Urine Podcrust comedy nontroup, called Time For The Show! The latest incarnations have been better recorded and had less cussing than earlier ones, and #102 (Jan. 8, "2018")had Stang as a guest, so for obvious reasons Stang decided to just run that insane thing pretty much as is. You can hear Time for the Show at OR OR Or look at the Hour of Slack Radio section of Anyway the purveyors of Time for the Show so far have been Rev. Fidd Chewley, Dr. Argus Faux, and the ever insecure Rev. Peas, all of them heard on recent Hours of Slack on recordings from X-Day Drills.

Down in the Medicine Shithole! Thanks to the President, we are now free to play, on public airwaves available to children, songs like "Shithole Town" by The Rainmakers! (Actually, we censored the broadcast version; this version is 18 minutes longer than an hour, too!) Most of the show is a good ol' live chat with Lonesome Cowboy Dave, recorded at Tarzan's at Stang Ranch, but (as always) on Sunday night just like a real show. Remastered versions of four songs by The Rudy Schwartz Poject and one by Lothar and the Hand People (!) form the opening twenty minutes but after that it's all about the smell of the fish people, the interchangeability of Trump and shit, shit holes, dingleberries, Trumphole towns, Jimmy Swaggart, Stormy Waters, British pee party tapes, what it's like down in The Medicine Fish Hole, yankin' out fresh expressions, The Master Game, Masonic Illuminati, the judging categories of Pyroflatulation contests.

This Hour of Slack  is by necessity and choice a rerun of #411 from Sept. 1993, which was requested by a long-time listener, and when we checked it out we could hear why. It's REALLY unusual and features some excellent rants by the then-high-schooler named Reverend Gobi, who had a SubGenius show at her high school radio station. They're a real blast of fresh air from the ancient past.
