The SubGenius Hour of Slack Podcast
The Church of the SubGenius Weekly Radio Ministry

SHOW CRASH!The Puzzling Evidence Show physically crashed into The Hour of Slack! To make matters even more severe, it was the OLDEST version of The Puzzling Evidence Show, because it included Dr. Gary G'Broagfran! It happened because an airplane carrying Doug Wellman, Gary G'Broagfran, and Rev. Eohippus Lovechild (who'll be on next week) went out of control while flying over Flyover Country, and crashed on Stang Ranch in rural Texas, right next to Tarzan's Radio Station! What could we do but activate The Third Microphone and call Lonesome Cowboy Dave? So what you get here -- and it is truly unique -- is, first, Gary ALL BY HIMSELF because Wellman and Stang abandoned him to the mix board (this is actually the funniest part of the show), and then the first and only known interaction between THE Puzzling Evidence and THE Lonesome Cowboy Dave... PLUS GARY!! The Dr. Hal part of The Puzzling Evidence Show, and the Philo Drummond part, have jammed with Dave plenty of times before, but wait'll you hear the ping-ponging bounce-back in the sandbox of the Dave AND the Puzz! There's also some great old new "media barrage" by Cool Hand Chris (using lots of ancient SubG stuff) and a tune from The Rudy Schwartz Project's elder album, "Salmon Dave." And: LeMur!

Hour of Slack #1670 - "Bob," God, Money and Drugs

Rerun of #843 (2002)

59:28

Rerun of #843 (2002). We had to do our taxes, which are more complicated for this church than for most, so we're again presenting an especially good rerun -- at least, the label on the master had a scrawl on it in Stangwriting saying "Good one!" We know from the log however (seen at subgenius.com) that it has a fine Pater Nostril collage from devivals and other things, music by Saint N and Hellena Handbasket, lots of clips from good old Media Barrage Tape #5 (1982), LeMur, Nu-Monet, and Artemia Salina collages, much best live ESO Swamp Radio with Dave, Chas, StangDoe and callers, Puzzling Evidence, a Glassmadness classic "Bob" hymn, and even RastaBillyBob and "Zeeza."

This episode is partly a fundraiser show. Some SubGeniuses are currently Slackless. We can help because in some dim way, we actually are a kind of a, well, er, "church." There's some wonderful musical and bulldada weirdness at the beginning by our old buds Fernandinande Le Mur and The Rudy Schwartz Project, and then some Media Barrage by Cool Hand Chris. There's a killer segment of Podcrust from last 20X-Day Drill, recorded in the wee hours of July 5 by host Rev. Anna Maul, with guests Rev. Benard and Rev. Redacted. Then we call Lonesome Cowboy Dave in Ashtabula, Ohio, from the MegaFisTemple Lodge in Glen Rose, Texas, and wildness ensues. There's even a discussion about wildness in general.

It's a good time for reruns, and this is one of our favorites, from the days when Hour of Slack merged with Chas Smith's ESO Swamp Radio on WCSB. Lonesome Cowboy Dave is razzed and tortured by Stang (and defended by Wei) while Chas plays his ass off on several synthesizers. (Two songs spontaneously generate themselves.) This episode is particularly skewed towards paleontology and paleoanthropology, because Stang and Wei had visited the Cleveland Natural History Museum earlier in the day. The museum actually did display the jawbone of a Yeti, incidentally, and the Dobsonfly is a real insect.
