Hour of Slack #1584 - Trump Vs. DEVO

First up is the amazing brand new Rudy Schwartz Project song, "It's Time for Trump." We think this might become a widely replayed song. We have new music and a new rant from new contributors Rev. Experimental and Rev. Watt deFalk, respectively; two Rev. Jimmy Ryan pieces; Rev. Bleepo Abernathy covers the TMBG song "Am I Awake?" and we get two songs from Xposed 4Heads and one from The Fantastic Plastics, both of whom performed at the 2016 DEVOtional in Cleveland the night before this show was recorded, and about which StangDoe rhapsodize at length when Lonesome Cowboy Dave calls in. Subjects: The Bathroom People. SubGenius Horror Hosts and the OSI74 ROKU channel of SubGeniusly programming. Stang's health report. The insanity of the electorate. When the FBI caravan comes to town. When Dave got beaten by cops for three hours. ((Background music is all by CyberChump's "Their Moment of Perfect Happiness" (related to Xposed 4Heads).)) P.S. Stang was wrong, the first movie version of “I Am Legend” was titled “The Last Man on Earth”.

Hour of Slack #1583 - Rants and Music of X-Day / Live WCSB

First half is great rants, music and Other from 19X-Day: Rev. Nugget's nugget; some random Faux, Wei and Baby Bear; rip-snortin' guitar work by Angry Lord Larry and Lord Rock God; a heart-whacking duet by St. Andrew the Impaled and amazing singer Rev. Amy MmHmm; Stang and other Wotanners go down in The Medicine Fish Hole; and a kazoo masterpiece duet by Rev. Anna Maul and Rev. A. P. O'Stacy Fnord. When Lonesome Cowboy Dave calls at the halfway point, music from X-Day continues in the background. (Other musicians PROBABLY include Rev. Hazel of the Windmills, Dr. Shoggoth, Rev. Walter Cozmac, Rev. Sinphaltimus Exxmortis, Lord Ferg, Assmaster Fidd Chewley, Rev. Peas, Radio Mike.) The discussion with Dave is another one of those kind that all seven Trump-admiring SubGeniuses might just want to skip, because it is meant to be extremely insulting, demeaning, and belittling.

Hour of Slack #1582 - True Tales of Reptiliosexuals

Two shows in one! (A) Second half of the first 19X-Day Wisteria show with Dr. Hal and Rev. Susie the Floozie, plus (B) live show from WCSB, Aug 8, 2016 with Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Stang, Wei, and Dr. Sinister. In the first half, many sexy details are revealed regarding Rev. Susie the Floozie's bug and lizard zoo and fetishes. Examples of lizard abuse in the making of old dinosaur movies are discussed and disgusting. Dr. Hal returns to Ball's Pyramid Island. In the second half, after Dave calls in and discusses Connie and jobs, Stang reads the poem "Job" by Rev. Joaquin de la Garza. Advice is given on how to survive jobs, and how to see the Mark Mothersbaugh art show in Cleveland as well as the DEVOtional. The Mandela effect, or just marijuana abuse? We managed to make it almost to the very end without mentioning Trump.

Hour of Slack #1581 - Big Sister and The Dirtiest Word

Cleveland musician Charleston Okafor was finishing up his show African Abstract on WCSB when he asked incoming DJs Rev. Ivan Stang and Princess Wei R. Doe for their opinions about Trump and Clinton. Politically biased ranting ensued and then continued during a long stretch of live show during which Lonesome Cowboy Dave forgot to call in. Long story short, Stang came up with plenty of excuses to unleash his Inner Dumbass. Dave finally did call in. Interspersed is music both old and new by, variously, Xposed 4heads, The Psycho Skeletons, LeMur, The Great Groovy Neptune, The Rudy Schwartz Project, Doug 3, The Fantastic Plastics, and Rev. Jimmy Ryan.
The beginning with Charleston Okafor is much longer on the Internet version than on the radio version, which is always cut down to just under one hour.

Hour of Slack #1580 - Post-19X-Day-Starwood-and-RNC

First time back in the WCSB studio after 19X-Day, Starwood 36, and the RNC! We changed our minds about releasing the X-Day recordings as fast as we can -- we'll save some of those for our 6 months in Texas when we don't have the station or Dave. But this show has the Lonesome Cowboy! -- and lots of music too: Xposed 4Heads, The Fantastic Plastics, O.O.B. Experience, Doktors 4 Extreme Prejudice. Discussions cover The Age of Stupid, current events, undercurrents, currants, the elections, and how to repeat, quip your jab and Slock on. Some anecdotes from the various events are told and the "Bob" Whoopee Cushion is finally explained in full.

Hour of Slack #1579 - 19X-Day at Tarzan's Radio Station

The true story of what happened at Wisteria during 19X-Day, or, more correctly, the 21st X-Day Drill, beginning June 30, "2016." These episodes are recorded not at WCSB but on Tarzan's Radio Station, set atop a picnic table in a semi-enclosed outdoor cafe. In Stang's intro he mistakenly claims that Rev. Susie the Floozie is on this episode, but in fact she was in the second hour (next week). This one has Dr. Hal, Rev. Stang, and Princess Wei talking about X-Day, stop-motion dinosaurs, Bible movies, devil skeletons and much more. First, however, we hear inspiring SubGenius hymns by The El Queso All-Stars, Rev. Phineas Narco, Dr. Hal remixed by Rev. Wilhelm Stahlhelm, Da Binci, and even, at the very end, Rev. Stang (with help from LeMur, the son of Stang, others). As usual, a rough text log or spoiler sheet for this episode is stashed away on subgenius.com in the radio section.

Hour of Slack #1578 - 19X-Day Radio Synesthesia with Dr. Howll 'n Callers (B)

This second hour of the pre-X-Day Radio Synesthesia show starts with the train wreck of Gov. Rocknar's immediate financial problems, but it grows into a powerful message of Slack. Dr. Sinister's studio guests are Dr. Howll, Rev. Stang, Princess Wei (that's pronounced "Wheeee!" by the way) and Lonesome Cowboy Dave. They grapple with callers Rocknar and No Money Mark, and each other, for the entire hour, aside from a very old StangCollage at the beginning. We're posting this episode a week early because we'll be back at Wisteria for Starwood Festival during the critical show-posting time-interstices. In two weeks this program will begin revealing the true story of what happened at Wisteria starting with the beginning of 19X-Day, or, more correctly, the 21st X-Day Drill, on June 27, "2016."

As always, a rough text log or spoiler sheet for this episode is stashed away on subgenius.com in the radio section.

Hour of Slack #1577 - 19X-Day Synesthesia with Dr. Howll 'n Dave

As most of you can probably deduce from your surroundings, this last July 5 wasn't July 5, 1998. So 1998 hasn't happened yet, and instead of having the alien AI called MWOWM do it all for us, we have to edit these hours of recordings from 19X-Day ourselves. (Actually it was the 21st X-Day Drill.) Luckily, the night before we left Cleveland for the Drill, we guested on Dr. Sinister's show Radio Synesthesia at WCSB for two hours, of which this is the first. Participants include Dr. Howll, Rev. Ivan Stang, Princess Wei 'R.' Doe, and Lonesome Cowboy Dave. X-Day itself is not discussed much, but everything else in the world is.

Hour of Slack #1576 - 19X-Day Begins with Dr. Howll

DAMN IT! Stang forgot to credit Rev. Walter Cosmac for the collage at the very beginning, and we don't have time to add that audio because the world is about to end and (though this makes no sense) we're rushing around trying to get all loose ends tied up before July 5. The big celebration at the remote secret campground being immanent, we flew in the illustrious and erudite Dr. Hal Robins or Dr. Howll to preside over this final broadcast. (In fact this is the first of a three hour broadcast from WCSB that lapped over into Dr. Sinister's two-hour show after The Hour of Slack. Those hours will be available later, albeit not on Earth Farm One for much longer.) An operatic song by Xposed 4heads, "Hot Aliens," is a perfect opening anthem for X-Day. Then Dr. Hal is introduced, Lonesome Cowboy Dave phones in, Princess Wei starts glowing, and the end game is afoot. We haven't had time to listen back to it so that's really all we know at this writing except that the show ends with The Rudy Schwartz Project covering the Swinging Love Corpses classic, "Pick a Booger." Thanks for all the Slack, and see you on The Saucers.

Hour of Slack #1575 - Walkers for Trump

This was one talkative episode! The music at the beginning includes excellent brand new pieces by David Morrison and Pilgrim Speakeasy, and there's an RSP dingleberry at the end. In between it's nonstop banter, blather and ranting as we gear up for both X-Day/Starwood and the Inevitable Mass Trump Slapdown that we suspect is finally brewing. The problems of Facebook and "real" names comes up. The Romero-based Living Dead movies and the Walking Dead show as metaphors for the Dumbing of America are explored, painfully. Lonesome Cowboy Dave expresses his dislike of superheroes. Stang gets possessed by that redneck wingnut demon again.
