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

Why did the Men from Planet X abandon us again? Why is the Banned list longer than the Pre-Registration list? Whence comes that amazing low frequency hum, if not the sheer disappointment of the SubGeniuses? Will there ever be amnesty for the SubGenius Kooks? Should we frop more on Mount Fropmore? Why does X-Day only work for pureblood Yetis? How well do propellor-beanies really work? Why is Stang gone? These questions and more are answered by Dr. Hal, Dr. Philo Drummond, Rev. Angry Larry, Rev. Fanboy and Rev. FEIT C TAJ in an array of excerpts captured at the 21st X-Day Drill. (Technically it's actually the 23rd Drill.) Also: "Emotional Support Hamster in the Walnut Room" by The Rudy Schwartz Project, some crazy collage by Cool Hand Chris and LeMur, and a super-secret new intro by Rev. Bleepo Abernathy!

Praise be to the SubGenius Media Mongering Imps of 21X-Day! Thanks to the recordings captured by Dr. Philo Drummond, Rev. Feit C Taj, and Rev. Fanboy, I, Stang, was able to cobble together an original show that's slightly less than a week late! It's the second hour of Dr. Hal and Dr. Philo Drummond gamely making Show happen on July 4 in front of a tiny audience, intercut with Rev. Fanboy and Rev. Feit C Taj from later (or earlier?) that same day. A day of hope, DASHED. There's also a brand new Rudy Schwartz Project song, some nice Cool Hand Chris collage, lots of LeMur, and an ending with The Rainmakers in an unusual live concert recording.

Dr. Philo Drummond and Dr. Hal supplant Rev. Stang as masters of Tarzan's Radio Station at the 21X-Day Drill! (Stang couldn't be there but he sent the portable studio with Princess Wei.) This is the first hour of several to come with this all-new, all-old new crew cast. Rev. Anna Maul, for instance, is new, and 40 years of The Puzzling Evidence Show is DAMN OLD. But, by Gobbs, we still GOT IT! So do LeMur, The Rudy Schwartz Project, and The Rainmakers. Discussion topics include: the Iceman's johnson - Aztec Mummy's johnson - the wine press of war on Earth - thinking multidimensionally - Stang, like Moses, can't enter the Promised Land - The Luck Plane - Basil Wolverton - Living Head movies and experiments - perfused heads in Russian history. Great astronomy lecture by Dr. Hal. The need to be in The Inner Ring, which drives The Conspiracy, and much much more.

Not a normal Hour of Slack. Due to hard Fate, Rev. Stang never made it to 21X-Day. Lots of others did, though, and some of them filled in for Stang as recording engineer of babbling weirdos at a campground. Thanks to Rev. Fanboy for hosting a show on July 4 and 5 on his own equipment, and getting the recordings to the Texas office so quickly! July 4 featured Rev. Fanboy and Rev. FEIT C TAJ; July 5 featured Rev. Anna Maul, Fanboy and new guy Rev. Y. B. Dobbs. What we have here are excerpts from the first parts of those two two-hour shows. There's also a really, really sick brand new song from The Rudy Schwartz Project's new album POSTAL CODE OF HAM, some old bulldada exploitation fake news bulldada compiled by Cool Hand Chris, and the requisite two Bob Walkenhorst/Rainmakers songs that happened to be, or seemed to be, by magic, perfectly descriptive of Rev. Stang's life that particular day. Plus LeMur News, in Washington.

This show is being broadcast and recorded on Sunday July First, at WCSB in Cleveland, four days before Thursday, July 5, at 7 am, X-Day, when the world will end for the Normals and BEGIN for the SubGeniuses. Before Lonesome Cowboy Dave calls in we hear a brand new musical children's story by The Rudy Schwartz Project (with vocals by Stang!), some killer collages by Cool Hand Chris and Lemur, a brand new SubSong by The El Queso All-Stars, and two Walkenhorst songs.
