Hour of Slack #1185 - Sneaking Into Stang's Office with Puzzling Evidence A little of everything! Sermon clips from Starwood Festival and Baltimore Devival 2008, interview clips from Right Where You Are Sitting Now, a ton of primo Puzzling Evidence Show, collages by LeMur, Pref, and McGee; antique music of the deep past; and much skulking and sneaking around in Stang's office by mischievous Philo Drummond, Dr. Hal, and Puzzling Evidence. (Posted 2 weeks early - last show until 2009.)

Hour of Slack #1184 - It's the End of the World Right Where You Are Sitting Now This episode covers all the main basic themes of the Church: "Bob," Slack, The Conspiracy, and World Blowout. Lots of Norel Pref collage helps ventilate dense sermon clips from Starwood Festival and radio banter from Puzzling Evidence with Philo Drummond and Dr. Hal. We start scavenging some interview material from an excellent British podcast, Right Where You Are Sitting Now, and we welcome work by new collagist Rev. Sweetness McGee. NOTE: We are posting this episode and #1185 early, because we'll be vacationing during the holidays and don't want to mess with big uploads then. This will carry us through to the end of December in weekly shows.

Hour of Slack #1183 -- Ultimate Xistlessnessmas Mix Rerun This is the annual traditional Xmas Re-Rerun of #867 (& 921 and 1026 & 1077), which was itself a condensation of the previous year's 3-show "Best of Xmas Sickness" compilation, which were themselves the concentrated best-of from 15 years' worth of previous Xmas SubGenius and other Xmas weirdo collections.

Hour of Slack #1182 - The Lonely Sperm at Christmas - Live Dec.7 '08 Mostly live from WCSB Cleveland, with Lonesome Cowboy Dave joining Rev. Stang and Princess Wei by phone. Not recommended for the infirm, the very old or the very young. An amazing new sarcastic Christmas song by The Attery Squash is premiered, along with several other bites out of the fresh Xmas apple by LeMur, SODDI, Rev. Norel Pref, Puzzling Evidence, and Synaesthesia. The Obituaries become a regular feature on the show, as everyone ages inexorably.

Hour of Slack #1181 - Evil Teddy Bears Vs. Obama This one's heavy on the Puzzling Evidence-Dr.Hal-Philo show excerpts, and they're exemplary excerpts. Papa Joe Mama's classic "Last Chance" rant proves that he knew the results of the 2008 election back in 1996. We also hear the openings of the Stangian sermons from the most recent Starwood Festival and Baltimore devivals. Most of the music comes from Girl Talk, making this an unusually illegal episode! There are even some last dangling remnants from the XI-X-Day stage and radio recordings, from Brushwood as well as WCSB's Radio Synaesthesia.

Hour of Slack #1180 - "STARK MOCKIT -- A Depression Comedy" by Rev. Susie the Floozy This is one of the greatest Hours of Slack ever, and it's not even an Hour of Slack. It's Rev. Susie the Floozy's incredible Episode # 740 of "Bob's" Slacktime Funhouse from WREK in Atlanta, Georgia, and it's truly one of the most amazing media barrage-style collages we have ever had the orgozmonic psychotronic pleasure to hear. Praise Rev. Susie the Floozy, and the 101 sources from whence she drew. It makes losing everything worth it.

Hour of Slack #1179 - Space Madness Drug War In the Hour of Slack studio, as we acquire new music and clips, we categorize them into various folders according to general subject matter: "Bob," sex, war, etc. This month, the folder of sound files concerned with drugs filled up. This episode, then, is composed of material that either deals with the dangers of drug abuse (especially in outer space), or else makes you feel like you are on drugs and wish you could come down. LeMur, Dr. Hal, the Joker, Radio Synaesthesia, Priestess Pisces, The Psycho Skeletons, Girl Talk, and especially the band Ogo Dys help out.

Hour of Slack #1178 - SubGenius All-Purpose Pledge Drive for Any Station It's a pledge drive show! -- a real one, originally done for WCSB in Cleveland, but we have jiggled and edited the specific phone numbers, pledge premiums and station I.D.s so that ANY station could use this for fund-raising purposes. Aside from a little LeMurian collage, some Girl Talk and "Faith healer" by ESO, it's nonstop all-out full-tilt gut-blowout frenzy on the parts of Lonesome Cowboy Dave and Rev. Stang as they dredge up every possible begging and wheedling ploy in the book, including dozens that no RESPECTABLE religious broadcast would ever consider.

Hour of Slack #1177 - Live 11-2-2008 - Pre-Election Special Rev. Ivan Stang, Lonesome Cowboy Dave and Princess Wei R. Doe break in the new WCSB studio with a live pre-election show featuring "The Interrogation of Mister Listless," bold surrealism, a slew of LeMur political cure-alls and some amazing music by Girl Talk and Marvelkind. Since most of our listeners will hear this after the election, we had to pretend that the election had already happened.

Hour of Slack #1176 - Rerun of #100 from 1987 - Brother Cleve, Michael Peppe A rerun of the wizened old Hour of Slack #100, an unusually good oldie featuring classic Puzzling Evidence, Michael Peppe's rant called AD, a big ol' mess of Brother Cleve, Swinging Erudites and Iron Liver, our first lady radio preacher Sister Krys, and the UNFINISHED, uncut, temporary soundtrack for the subgenius video, ARISE!
