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

Not a normal Hour of Slack. Due to hard Fate, Rev. Stang never made it to 21X-Day. Lots of others did, though, and some of them filled in for Stang as recording engineer of babbling weirdos at a campground. Thanks to Rev. Fanboy for hosting a show on July 4 and 5 on his own equipment, and getting the recordings to the Texas office so quickly! July 4 featured Rev. Fanboy and Rev. FEIT C TAJ; July 5 featured Rev. Anna Maul, Fanboy and new guy Rev. Y. B. Dobbs. What we have here are excerpts from the first parts of those two two-hour shows. There's also a really, really sick brand new song from The Rudy Schwartz Project's new album POSTAL CODE OF HAM, some old bulldada exploitation fake news bulldada compiled by Cool Hand Chris, and the requisite two Bob Walkenhorst/Rainmakers songs that happened to be, or seemed to be, by magic, perfectly descriptive of Rev. Stang's life that particular day. Plus LeMur News, in Washington.

This show is being broadcast and recorded on Sunday July First, at WCSB in Cleveland, four days before Thursday, July 5, at 7 am, X-Day, when the world will end for the Normals and BEGIN for the SubGeniuses. Before Lonesome Cowboy Dave calls in we hear a brand new musical children's story by The Rudy Schwartz Project (with vocals by Stang!), some killer collages by Cool Hand Chris and Lemur, a brand new SubSong by The El Queso All-Stars, and two Walkenhorst songs.

Rerun of #951. Puzzling Evidence show from KPFA, 7-9-04 has Dr. Hal and Philo Drummond reporting on their 7X-Day adventures... from this skeleton we hung documentary recordings from 7X-Day. Some audio is from the StangCam and other is from Pater Nostril's soundboard. Clips from the 7X-Day shows at WREK Atlanta's "Bob's Slacktime Funhouse" with The Lymph Node Institute and Rev. Susie the Floozie further illustrate the promise and tragedy of X-Day. Incidentally, we are posting this episode from Dr. Drummond's new skull farm in Kentucky!

This has never happened before! 21 X-Day is almost here, yet we're still trying to use up the recordings from last year's 20X-Day Drill. Editing time is at a premium these days, it seems. Is there such a thing as "too much Slack"? Perhaps... meanwhile, we have these precious recordings of the last moments before LAST year's dismal failure of a complete planetary overhaul. In the last hours before 7 am July 5, "2017," Rev. Anna Maul used Tarzan's Radio Station at Wisteria Campground to loudly await the saucers with guests Rev. Peas and then Rev. Fanboy. (This being the FIRST hour; we used Time Control to play the SECOND hour PREVIOUSLY!) Interspersed are songs and media barrages you have never heard, by bands and barragists that you HAVE heard almost every show for the last year or two, if you listen much. I.e. The Rainmakers, The Rudy Schwartz Project, The Psycho Skeletons, Cool Hand Chris, and the famous Fernandinande LeMur. We also feature a new song by Rev. Casey Wing.

This one is a "normal" 2018-style Hour of Slack (HA HA) recorded "live" at Stang Ranch with Lonesome Cowboy Dave calling in. It also has your normal songs by The Rudy Schwartz Project and Bob Walkenhorst, your normal audio collages that Cool Hand Chris sent in, your normal LeMur cuts, and Stang reading a rant by somebody younger (in this case, Rev. Eddie Romanov). In the live part, Dr. G. Gordon Gordon reviews Dave's novel "Neighborworld" and Stang reviews John Shirley's excellent (and opposite!) books "The Other End" (an enlightened and inspirational answer to the Left Behind series) and "In Extremis" (an anthology of his sickest short stories). Also: The coming civil war and The Good Old Days; time machine problems; deadly vermin of Stang Ranch; and the story of "Bob" Dobbs vs. the chem toilets.

This episode of The Hour of Slack is a rerun, but a MYSTERIOUS one. Our friend St. David Bachner has gone to the trouble of digitizing almost all of the first 1,100 Hours of Slack, transfering them from cassette tape to MP3, and making them freely downloadable on his website. We have been inspecting the logs of the downloads and noticed a couple of very strange things. Firstly, a suprising number of old shows are being downloaded by people in Russia and China. Secondly, while most of the old shows have been downloaded by an average of from 200 to 400 people, ONE of them has been downloaded almost 20,000 times! Our new shows get an average of like 3,000 downloads a month or so, but this one old show has been downloaded 20,000 times! We looked it up to see what was so special about it. It's Hour of Slack #863 from the year 2002, titled "TIME MADNESS," and it has some great stuff on it, but... damn if I know why this show out of all our 1200-odd shows has been copied by 20,000 people. Maybe YOU, dear listener, can figure it out. Please let us know, if you do.

ROBERT ANTON WILSON RANTED HIS ASS OFF ABOUT "BOB" IN 1991 AND HERE'S THE RECORDING! I guess we sort of forgot that this ever happened, it was so great. I, Stang have been assigned to do a few catch-up interviews for The SubGenius Documentary, and I just got back from Portugal with tonight's riveting interview with Dr. G. Gordon Gordon, Assassin for Dobbs. Here at Stang Ranch in Texas, I also interviewed the astounding Rev. Anna Maul about her SubGenius career, AND we have recordings of her "Countdown to X-Day" show last July 5 from midnight to 7 am. The Rudy Schwartz Project makes a rare guest appearance, as does Bob Walkenhorst of The Rainmakers and the elusive The Psycho Skeletons.

It's TIME FOR THE SHOW! AGAIN! Not this show, but the TIME FOR THE SHOW show! AGAIN! It's Part 2 from last week. So say hello AGAIN to Argus, Fidd and Peas before they say hello to YOU! We survived our trip to the G. Gordon Gordon estate in Porto, Portugal last week, and will be back with a "regular" Hour of Slack next week.

It's TIME FOR THE SHOW! Not this show, but the TIME FOR THE SHOW show! After about 35 years of Hour of Slack, The Puzzling Evidence Show, and "Bob's" Slack Time Funhouse, and National Cynical Radio, and Radio Synesthesia, there are now NEW SubGenius shows by people who are only in their 30s and 40s and 50s instead of their 60s and 70s! -- of which TIME FOR THE SHOW is the oldest, clocking in at SEVENTEEN WEEKLY EPISODES so far! In fact, because I Stang am leaving for Portugal tomorrow to shoot Dr. G. Gordon Gordon for letting "Bob" get shot, I'm just gonna save myself some rushed editing, and play the first HALF of that 2-hour 17th podcast episode. So say hello to Argus, Fidd and Peas, those smart-alecky highjinx-committing scalawags, whose cusswords I'll have to cut for the broadcast version.
