Hour of Slack #1202 -- Rerun of #40/772: PRAIRIE SQUID SPECIAL remix This is an old favorite of ours, a complete documentary about the Prairie Squid. Half of this show is from Hour of Slack #40 (1986) with G. Gordon Gordon, Rev. Ivan Stang, and background music by DK Jones, Mark Mothersbaugh, and Onan Canobite. Interspersed with that hardy and informative classic fossil are Prairie-Squid-related songs by Champion Jack Codini, songs and rants from Stang/Wei/ESO Radio and devival collaborations, a little Puzzling Evidence squididity, plus everything on Napster with the word "squid" in the title (mostly from 2000-2001).

Hour of Slack #1201 -- Jesus & X-Day Are Coming The "Bob" praisin' takes a temporary backseat to the promise of human-enslaving and rival cult bashing. X-DAY IS COMING! And we won't let you forget it, any more than the Christians will let you forget about Jesus. Luckily, we have on hand a solid mass of new material on both those subjects: superb collages, mash-ups and blabberclips from many fine audio arteests and bigmouths. Otherwise, this would have been a rerun, since we are still hard at work on the SubGenius Online Class at Maybe Logic Academy.

Hour of Slack #1200 - Rerun of #530 - Dobbson Flies Vs. Dave Men (1996) The SubGenius History Class is a good reason 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 does display the jawbone of a Yeti, incidentally, and the Dobbson Fly is a real insect.

Hour of Slack #1199 - Rerun of #569 -- Lonesome Cowboy Dave In Hell (ESO Radio, 2-27-97) We're busy for the next 8 weeks with the online SubGenius History course (at, so it's rerun time. Luckily, this particular rerun is one of the best of the late-90s ESO/SubGenius live radio collaborations, from ESO Swamp Radio on WCSB Cleveland. Chas Smith still had his life, and his original band, and you hear them playing along musically with wherever I, Stang and Lonesome Cowboy Dave go -- which was primarily to Hell and back. It is a torturous route, but it has a happy ending: Dave saves the world, and Chas covers a Residents classic.

Hour of Slack #1198 - Rev. Susie The Floozy & The Amazing Killagiastestes This episode spotlights new music from some strangely unheard-of ensembles, as well as The Kleptones; we hear the unforgettable, uncircumcised, incredibly passionate rant by Rev. Susie the Floozy from the Baltimore 2008 SubGenius Devival; and we hurt ourselves real bad with toxic kill-lage by Rev. Norel Pref and the great Fernandinande LeMur. This is a good one for headphones: very dense! -- and yet, unusually danceable! IMPORTANT NOTE to radio stations copping these free Internet show versions for airplay: Susie's rant has about 25 "fucks" in it. The $5 broadcast radio version has none.
