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

Stangless! Daveless! UnWeied!! Most of this show is excerpted carefully from The Puzzling Evidence Show (KPFA Berkeley, every Friday morning), with guest hosts Dr. Hal and Dr. Philo Drummond, from April 10 2015. It involves detailed cogitations on and known facts related to the relationships between modern humans, SubGeniuses, and Neanderthals. The Denisovans get a little air-time too, for once. It's highly educational! But don't be afraid. There's also music by LeMur, The Bishop, Psycho Skeletons, Max Slack and Rev. Edfred.

Stang lets his Texas accent go hogwild in this one, riding a bucking bronco of Texanism while reading a funny piece by James Moore about Jade Helm 15. Stang also reads a rant by Rev. Fidd Chewley, "What's Gonna Happen to the Church in the Future? (Humbug!)" We hear a new song, "Uberman," by Hombres del Mar, an adaptation of The Brag of the SubGenius. We hear a 10 minute rant-n-blues jam by Einstein's Secret Orchestra with Dave and Stang from 1,000 shows ago, in 1996. Stang reads sex advice to the romantic SubGenius Monster Hunter regarding Mounting. Then, Lonesome Cowboy Dave calls in. Among the issue's discussed: our friend Rev. Onan Canobite's art that was displayed in the infamous Texas Muslim-Hater's Cartoon Show and Botched Terror Attack. Did you know that detailed logs of everything discussed on shows like this are stored in the Hour of Slack section of subgenius.com? Well they are. Just click on any show title and there you'll find painfully detailed notes of each show.

It's COOL HAND CHRIS, not "CHRIS HAND LUKE." That's who did the background music. Stang strangely miscredited it. Other music is by The Mutant Mountain Boys, Max Slack, and Ft. Christopher Tung of VideoGameRapBattles. We're replaying choice bits from Puzzling Evidence Shows these days, starting now. In the live section, Stang reads more from Rev. Lee Cypher's PhD dissertation book about the Church of the SubGenius, plus a poem about "Bob" paraphrased by Ann Glen from THE BOOK OF THE SUBGENIUS. Report on Princess Wei's visit to a NORML rally and other current national news ridiculousness. Much should-have-been-kept-secret Church history and gossip. Someone should put a stop to all this.

Something new! Stang describes and reads from Rev. Lee Cipher's new SubGenius book: his PHD dissertation "Rhetorical Ripples: The Church of the SubGenius, Kenneth Burke, and Comic Symbolic Tinkering." It's wild! A serious academic look at the Church! Full of big words, but also lots of keen illustrations, with much rare stuff from Stang's online SubG History course at Maybe Logic Academy. After Lonecow Dave calls in, the conversation alters somewhat in nature, as has been known to happen, and becomes a Theological Hotline. Some of it is in reprehensible taste. The show ends with a pretty spectacular new, er, "song" by Rev. Bern Brijis. You would never know from listening to this that Rev. Stang had to repair three different malfunctioning station machines just before this show started.

Music by Drs. 4 Wotan, Mutant Mountain Boys, Max Slack, The Psycho Skeletons, Munky Hyv, and Rev. Phineas Narco. Crazy talk by Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Rev. Ivan Stang, Princess Wei "R." Doe, Dr. Howll, and Dr. Philo Drummond. The boys were feeling frisky this evening. Includes a shout-out to rev. peas. Stang also reads some Neal Stephenson and some Bobliographon.

This starts with SubGenius shout-outs by Timothy Leary, the Firesign Theatre, and Penn Jillette, which we put at the beginning for those who wanted to hear the old clips without having to listen to Hours of Slack. Then it's another cross section of best unreleased SubG DoktorMusic of the last few years -- but it's intercut with 1981 recordings of Stang's spontaneous hate rants, recorded in a car while driving to and from crappy jobs in the sweltering Dallas heat. This is the way Stang talked when not being restrained from saying anything that might offend dipshits. The original collection of rants was on a cassette tape entitled "The Hate of the Stang Brain." The great songs are by Munky Hyv, 6 Fisted Tails of Connie (misidentified in the credits by Stang on the show, who was rendered feeble-minded by anger that night), Andrew the Impaled with his uberclassic "Saucer Built for One," The Mutant Mountain Boys, and Rev. G. Don Trubey.

Whooo-doggies, this one should hopefully piss somebody off. It was Easter and SubGeniuses had been writing and posting some pretty hot rants on the Scrubgenius forum, and Stang got to reading them on the air, including "Slack Is" by Rev. Dr. Shoggoth and "Easter is Freedom Day" by Rev. Biggerstaff. The first half is "New Old Bobsongs Best-Of, continued" with music by The El Queso All Stars, Max Slack, The Large, Jere Faison, Rev. Wilhelm Stahlhelm, The Mutant Mountain Boys, Phat ManDee and Rev. Du8. Once Dave calls in and it goes live, Stang, who had become somewhat irritable during the week due to reading the news nonstop, releases the Crazy Preacher Kraken against "Tealiban" Christians who have lately been playing the Oppressed Victim Card with the help of the most popular "news" networks. It's so sad that ignorant fat white Christian right-wing poebucker macho men are such an oppressed minority these days. Let's all weep for 'em.

First half: a sampling of the best SubGenius-made Bobsongs and hymns that we're compiling for a series of albums spanning Church music from 2008 to the present. Contributors include The Mutant Mountain Boys, Lost Souls Inc., Christian Blatter, The Swinging Love Corpses, Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Heart Ignition, Brainleak, Chas Smith, LeMur, Poo Water Towel and the great Rev. Bill T. Miller, King of Slack. Second half: SMOTE BE IT, BABY; If Ya Got 'Em, Smote 'Em. Lonesome Cowboy Dave and his babysitters, Stang and Doe, tackle the most profound problems facing humanity and SubGeniusdom today, such as baldness.

Lots of new music in this (Bern Brijis, Steev Inglish, Amoeba Knievel, Joe Zeziorski, Psycho Skeletons) and a truly gut-splitting sermon about Excremeditation by Dr. G. Gordon Gordon, but mostly it is some "Best of Puzzling Evidence" as selected by Rev. Baby Bear and Rev. Stang. The main spouters are Dr. Hal and Dr. Philo Drummond, and they do some killer verbal riffs about Church doctrine as well as a science lesson that you'll never forget, especially if you google the images they suggest!

The WCSB studio phones were broken this night -- and so was the whole studio! Yet we broadcast anyway. The first half of the show features one song each by the bands that will perform at the March 21 Winterstar Ball in Cleveland: Rev. Phat ManDee, Muruga Booker and the Cosmic Hoedown band, Steev Inglish, Brian Henke, Mayan Ruins and Sister Melodious Chops (the band Wei is in). (The Ball is a benefit for ACE/Starwood and the late Jeff Rosenbaum.) The second half is Stang reading rants by Phineas Narco and The Good Rev. Roger, and twenty solid minutes of uncut Puzzling Evidence Show with Dr. Philo Drummond and Dr. Hal, with a very interesting discussion of the ins and outs of managing a sperm bank.
