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

This is the fourth Dr. Legume Tribute Special Number. It starts with the last Dr. Legume recording that we made, him on a panel with Dr. Hal, Onan Canobite and Stang, at 20 X-Day in 2017, then cuts to one of the very OLDEST recordings of Dr. Legume, from Hour of Slack #467 from 1993. In the first, the most recent, he describes a blood-curdling event that he induced at Starwood Festival in 1993, and in the older recording we hear Stang's actual tape of the dreadful event --plus a rant by Dr. Legume from that same Starwood. Finally we return to the 2017 recording, in which Dr. Legume vividly tells the story of a dire and surreal road trip during the time he was first discovering "Bob" in his heart (and in even worse places).

What are the holidays without Slack and reruns? Sappy, nostalgia-provoking reruns on TV are what Christmas is all about, right? Plus, it gives us a break. This is the hoary old annual traditional Xmas Re-Rerun of #867 (and 921 and 1026, 1077, 1129, 1236, 1338, 1497, 1549, 1602, 1654, etc.), which was itself a condensation of some ancient year's 3-show "Best of Xmas Sickness" compilation, which were themselves the concentrated best-of from 15 years' worth of previous Xmas SubGenius and other Xmas weirdo collections, going back to the show's beginning in 1985 at KNON, Dallas. Includes over 66 separate tracks/songs/bits! And no, not one bit has been changed in all these years. Now that's Slack!

This third tribute show to Dr. K'taden Legume is one of those Internet-only "X-rated" shows, featuring rants that are so unsafe for work that were we to edit out the cussing and triggers, there's be almost nothing left. Begins with the original super-infamous "Rape Bear" allegory that some newly "P.C.-minded" members quit the Church over, followed by several even more brutal (and hilarious) fables and children's stories. The true stoy of Beer God Hunger Fucker, "Bob's" ill-fated chain of fast-food joints is revealed. There's much more recent ranting from the 2017 X-Day live radio shows, with Dr. Legume joined by Rev. Susie the Floozie, Rev. Faux and Rev. Peas. It's not all Legume; three profane and/or obscene songs are included, two from the lastest Rudy Schwartz Project album "Postal Code for Ham."

We continue the homage to the late Dr. Legume with some of his classic rants from radio shows, devivals and X-Day Drills, from 1996 to 2017. Legume often guested on both Prozak Free Radio with Ed Strange and on Chas Smith's ESO Swamp Radio. Rant subjects include Butthurt Bobbies, The Planet of Broken Glass, and False Christians; at the end, he turns into a whale. In between the recordings, Stang expounds on the good Doktor and the Old Days.

It's true. Dr. K'taden Legume has Boarded the Saucers. This time it's for real. His passing has left a Dr. Legume-sized hole in the fabric of the SubGenius Universe, and we're vainly trying to fill it with this tribute, replaying some of his classic sermons, rants and radio call-ins from over the last 26 years. This bonus-length Internet version features his complete, uncut 1996 World Tour devival rant in Madison, his 2002 Akron devival sermon, his amazing performance at the 2007 Baltimore show, the 2011 X-Day preaching on SubGenius Butthurt, and some very weird call-in moments from Chas Smith's old ESO Swamp Radio show on WCSB Cleveland. Almost everybody who went to X-Day Drills probably met Dr. Legume, who practically invented them. He was a truly giant figure in the real-world social part of The Church of the SubGenius as well as its doctrinal side as seen in our books and audio recordings.
