Hour of Slack #1580 - Post-19X-Day-Starwood-and-RNC

First time back in the WCSB studio after 19X-Day, Starwood 36, and the RNC! We changed our minds about releasing the X-Day recordings as fast as we can -- we'll save some of those for our 6 months in Texas when we don't have the station or Dave. But this show has the Lonesome Cowboy! -- and lots of music too: Xposed 4Heads, The Fantastic Plastics, O.O.B. Experience, Doktors 4 Extreme Prejudice. Discussions cover The Age of Stupid, current events, undercurrents, currants, the elections, and how to repeat, quip your jab and Slock on. Some anecdotes from the various events are told and the "Bob" Whoopee Cushion is finally explained in full.

Hour of Slack #1579 - 19X-Day at Tarzan's Radio Station

The true story of what happened at Wisteria during 19X-Day, or, more correctly, the 21st X-Day Drill, beginning June 30, "2016." These episodes are recorded not at WCSB but on Tarzan's Radio Station, set atop a picnic table in a semi-enclosed outdoor cafe. In Stang's intro he mistakenly claims that Rev. Susie the Floozie is on this episode, but in fact she was in the second hour (next week). This one has Dr. Hal, Rev. Stang, and Princess Wei talking about X-Day, stop-motion dinosaurs, Bible movies, devil skeletons and much more. First, however, we hear inspiring SubGenius hymns by The El Queso All-Stars, Rev. Phineas Narco, Dr. Hal remixed by Rev. Wilhelm Stahlhelm, Da Binci, and even, at the very end, Rev. Stang (with help from LeMur, the son of Stang, others). As usual, a rough text log or spoiler sheet for this episode is stashed away on subgenius.com in the radio section.

Hour of Slack #1578 - 19X-Day Radio Synesthesia with Dr. Howll 'n Callers (B)

This second hour of the pre-X-Day Radio Synesthesia show starts with the train wreck of Gov. Rocknar's immediate financial problems, but it grows into a powerful message of Slack. Dr. Sinister's studio guests are Dr. Howll, Rev. Stang, Princess Wei (that's pronounced "Wheeee!" by the way) and Lonesome Cowboy Dave. They grapple with callers Rocknar and No Money Mark, and each other, for the entire hour, aside from a very old StangCollage at the beginning. We're posting this episode a week early because we'll be back at Wisteria for Starwood Festival during the critical show-posting time-interstices. In two weeks this program will begin revealing the true story of what happened at Wisteria starting with the beginning of 19X-Day, or, more correctly, the 21st X-Day Drill, on June 27, "2016."

As always, a rough text log or spoiler sheet for this episode is stashed away on subgenius.com in the radio section.

Hour of Slack #1577 - 19X-Day Synesthesia with Dr. Howll 'n Dave

As most of you can probably deduce from your surroundings, this last July 5 wasn't July 5, 1998. So 1998 hasn't happened yet, and instead of having the alien AI called MWOWM do it all for us, we have to edit these hours of recordings from 19X-Day ourselves. (Actually it was the 21st X-Day Drill.) Luckily, the night before we left Cleveland for the Drill, we guested on Dr. Sinister's show Radio Synesthesia at WCSB for two hours, of which this is the first. Participants include Dr. Howll, Rev. Ivan Stang, Princess Wei 'R.' Doe, and Lonesome Cowboy Dave. X-Day itself is not discussed much, but everything else in the world is.
