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

This episode of The Hour of Slack is a rerun, but a MYSTERIOUS one. Our friend St. David Bachner has gone to the trouble of digitizing almost all of the first 1,100 Hours of Slack, transfering them from cassette tape to MP3, and making them freely downloadable on his website. We have been inspecting the logs of the downloads and noticed a couple of very strange things. Firstly, a suprising number of old shows are being downloaded by people in Russia and China. Secondly, while most of the old shows have been downloaded by an average of from 200 to 400 people, ONE of them has been downloaded almost 20,000 times! Our new shows get an average of like 3,000 downloads a month or so, but this one old show has been downloaded 20,000 times! We looked it up to see what was so special about it. It's Hour of Slack #863 from the year 2002, titled "TIME MADNESS," and it has some great stuff on it, but... damn if I know why this show out of all our 1200-odd shows has been copied by 20,000 people. Maybe YOU, dear listener, can figure it out. Please let us know, if you do.

ROBERT ANTON WILSON RANTED HIS ASS OFF ABOUT "BOB" IN 1991 AND HERE'S THE RECORDING! I guess we sort of forgot that this ever happened, it was so great. I, Stang have been assigned to do a few catch-up interviews for The SubGenius Documentary, and I just got back from Portugal with tonight's riveting interview with Dr. G. Gordon Gordon, Assassin for Dobbs. Here at Stang Ranch in Texas, I also interviewed the astounding Rev. Anna Maul about her SubGenius career, AND we have recordings of her "Countdown to X-Day" show last July 5 from midnight to 7 am. The Rudy Schwartz Project makes a rare guest appearance, as does Bob Walkenhorst of The Rainmakers and the elusive The Psycho Skeletons.

It's TIME FOR THE SHOW! AGAIN! Not this show, but the TIME FOR THE SHOW show! AGAIN! It's Part 2 from last week. So say hello AGAIN to Argus, Fidd and Peas before they say hello to YOU! We survived our trip to the G. Gordon Gordon estate in Porto, Portugal last week, and will be back with a "regular" Hour of Slack next week.

It's TIME FOR THE SHOW! Not this show, but the TIME FOR THE SHOW show! After about 35 years of Hour of Slack, The Puzzling Evidence Show, and "Bob's" Slack Time Funhouse, and National Cynical Radio, and Radio Synesthesia, there are now NEW SubGenius shows by people who are only in their 30s and 40s and 50s instead of their 60s and 70s! -- of which TIME FOR THE SHOW is the oldest, clocking in at SEVENTEEN WEEKLY EPISODES so far! In fact, because I Stang am leaving for Portugal tomorrow to shoot Dr. G. Gordon Gordon for letting "Bob" get shot, I'm just gonna save myself some rushed editing, and play the first HALF of that 2-hour 17th podcast episode. So say hello to Argus, Fidd and Peas, those smart-alecky highjinx-committing scalawags, whose cusswords I'll have to cut for the broadcast version.
