Hour of Slack #1489 -- Murder at Mysterious Wisteria?

All recorded on location at Wisteria during 17X-Day Drill, and yet it sounds almost like an old murder mystery radio play. If only it were simply some kind of elaborate prank! Just before the sacred nude Bobtism ceremony (heard in all its naked glory), evidence of an apparent murder was discovered at the Bobtismal Pond. But where was the body? After the mangled pet, the couple attacked in their car, the weird footprints, the mole stampede, and other unexplained but increasingly sinister events at 17X-Day Drill, it had become plain that some person or some THING was on the loose and stealing not only Slack but possibly lives. We still have seen no sign of "Rev. Bastard," incidentally!

Hour of Slack #1488b - Synaesthesia with Baby Bear

Nerd-Out at the Bottom of the Nerd Barrel! After Hour of Slack #1488, we stuck around with special guest Rev. Baby Bear and Special Caller Dave for another hour of live radio, kindly lent us by Special Host Dr. Sinister from his Radio Synaesthesia show. It's 52 minutes of pure chatter that we're distributing by Internet only. It is truly a Nerd-Out; comic books and movies are discussed in detail along with many SubGenius Church Secrets and WCSB inside-jokes. Even the Useless Secret Super-Powers of several SubGenii are revealed. WARNING: This show may be somewhat more linear and less confusing than the "average" Hour of Slack. However it is every bit as nerdly.

Hour of Slack #1488a - 17X-Day/DEVO/ Baby Bear (Dual Show)

You could call this a two-hour Hour of Slack. Largely because we had a special guest for Hour of Slack (Rev. Baby Bear, fresh from 14 hours of Ask Dr. Hal and Puzzling Evidence shows), and because Dr. Sinister wandered in early and got on Mic 4, we ended up doing an extra hour of spouting and splavering, eating up the first hour of Radio Synaesthesia after a whole hour of Hour of Slack. I guess we will call this a Dual Show. The first half hour is music and a SubGenius wedding/divorce from 17 X-Day as well as two more DEVO covers from NNBBM Vol. 12. Musicians include The Mutant Mountain Boys, Rev. angry Larry, Andrew the Impaled, Tommy Amoeba, Evolution Control Committee and Dr. Hal. Then the talking on WCSB begins, and bleeds over into the following show, Radio Synaesthesia, which we'll call 1488b or Part Two. Sorry, it's really hard not to make terrible Ebola jokes, references and conspiracy theories in this situation, and we hope God doesn't give us the Ebolas for making sport.

Hour of Slack #1486 - 17X-Day "B.O.4" - Grow Your Own Penis

Once again we offer a cross section of best songs and rants from the 17X-Day Drill stage, mixed with some Devo covers from the latest NNBBM compilation: Dr. Hal, Andrew the Impales, Mutant Mountain Boys, Priestess Pisces, Evolution Control Committee, Milnar, Sunflower Saints, Psycho Skeletons, Reagan's Polyp. Dave calls in late, feeling poorly, so we and the listeners "pray" for him. We announce the new SubGenius Bandcamp site and three upcoming devivals or otherwise Sub-centric parties. There is a discussion about the dangers of non-Frop drugs, and a reaction to the news of lab-grown penii. Some dare call it surrealism. We call it Morealism.
