The only contestant missing from this Battle of the SubGenius Radio Broadcast All-Star series is Rev. Susie the Floozie's show, but her show stayed in Atlanta while Hour of Slack drove to San Francisco (and promptly sprained one of its four ankles). Rev. Ivan Stang, Puzzling Evidence, Dr. Philo Drummond, and Dr. Hal did a total of five two-hour broadcasts recently, and by phone joined WCSB's Radio Synaesthesia for yet a sixth show with Lonesome Cowboy Dave and Dr. Sinister drawn into the mix. (While in California, Stang was also interviewed for the NPR show "To the Best of Our Knowledge, to air March 11, last we heard.) The first 23 minutes of this episode include the report of the SubGenius Pope of China, Rev. Shining Path of Least Resistance, to the Puzzling Evidence show regarding his recent tour of NORTH KOREA. (A copy of the SubGenius movie ARISE! is somewhere in North Korea now.) That's followed by a rare DEVO cover of a NIN song, an amazing overdub of the Gary G'broagfran song "Bohandas Man," more of our favorite moments from the various shows -- especially one with Rev. Kaosmic BobKat (Mrs. Drummond) also in the studio -- and two priceless calls by the great Rev. Michael Peppe to Puzzling Evidence. Next week, we will begin mixing this "all-star show battle" material with more traditional (sic) Hour of Slack-type clips, plus the first of StangDoe's dozens of SubGenius Family Vacation audio reports.
