This episode of The Hour of Slack is dedicated to the late Saint Phil Austin of the Firesign Theatre, who boarded his escape saucer June 18, 2015. Featured are some Austin-centric clips from one Feb., 1970 Firesign Theatre Radio Hour Hour, followed by a sometimes touching discussion of how critical The Firesign Theatre was to the Church of the SubGenius. Stang, Dave and Doe also relect upon the influences of other great inspirators of SubGeniusdom, like the underground comics, Zappa, Harryhausen etc. The scandalous question of just how much pot has been smoked on the air over the years is addressed. Also, we are very excited about X-Day and Starwood.
