Hour of Slack #1396 - Rerun of #923 - Devival Rants: Carter, Pisces, Man, Lymph Node

We'll be back to all-new shows soon. Meanwhile, reruns like this one from 2004 are cutting us some much-needed Slack. This episode is a cross-section of a rousing Cleveland devival combined with some choice live ESO Swamp Radio from the late Chas Smith's WCSB show and some Lymph Node Institute rants from "Bob's" Slacktime Fun House (WREK Atlanta). We hear sermons from preachers Rev. Carter LeBlanc, Priestess Pisces, and Rev. Stang, and songs (or something) by the incredible Man, Inc. of Detroit, Lonesome Cowboy Dave's band Mondo Retardo, The Flyin' Ryan Brothers, Norel Pref, and even The Beastie Boys (!).

- Live on WREK Atlanta 2012-12-08

Rev. Susie the Floozie's show on WREK-Atlanta, "Bob's" Slack Time Funhouse, is almost always carefully prepared with exacting machine-gun editing. This episode is an exception.

Vaylor Trucks of Bonobos Convergence. Two truly bulldada tracks from the Floozeum LP Collection are played: "Martyrs" from the incredible album "Worlds of Youth," and "Entropy" by Bruce Haack, one of the weirdest hipster albums for children ever conceived. Subjects covered in the live conversations: Canned Dave; Stang Ranch in South Hell; Don't Pray to "Bob"; monsters as religion; SubGenius shows history; the tech hall at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; the 9 Voyages of Sinbad; Video Game Addiction (on Stang's part); presenting a SubG Membership to Jonathan Coulton; the Hell of Weekly SubGenius Show Production; SubGenius Horror Hosts; Epcot Center; Mermaid Biology; Human Gullibility and Ignorance; Deer Crossings.

Hour of Slack #1393 - Rerun #1000  (Live June 19, 2005)

Hard to believe, but The Hour of Slack has been running continuously on broadcast radio since October, 1985, and on the Internet since 1996 (in TrueSpeech!). This unusual installment, our 1000th, is dedicated to itself instead of to "Bob." Features audio and letters sent in by listeners and contributors for this special 2005 show -- plus our huge collection of celebrity show I.D.s.
