An influx of brand new music from various highly twisted artists allows us to start gradually weaning ourselves away from the 12X-Day recordings. This episode features startlingly different songs by Devo Dan, Rev. Wilhelm Stahlhelm, The Attery Squash, and Rural War Room, plus some oldies from ESO and Rev. Oroborous Rex. The spoken word section, however, is an unbroken series of readings at 12X-Day by various voice actors of FAIRY TALES, specifically four "Fairy Tale Frday" tales, all written by Rev. Ramona Back It On Up. Readers include Rev. Nickie Deathchick Wild, Rev. Susie the Floozie, Dr. Hal and Pater Nostril. Rev. Norel Pref and Mister LeMur also pop up.

A chunk of this episode is some naughty sex advice from the brand new podcast of Reverends Bunny Day and Dildo Valerie, two young Connieites who made a big splash at 12X-Day (first heard there on DJ Shaver's ORKILLME Radio.) The whole last half is dedicated to the "Ask Dr. Hal" performance that took place at 12X-Day, with Priestess Pisces fielding the questions for Dr. Hal. The show is rounded out, or squred off, or disrupted, depending, by collages from LeMur and The Large, Puzzling Evidence, and the occasional pertinent movie soundtrack clips.

The secrets of the SubGenius world-ritual-exorcism called X-Day are finally revealed. After this broadcast, we probably don't need to produce any more shows. The deed is done. There is no turning back. Dr. Hal, The Amino Acids, LeMur, Norel Pref, Priestess Pisces, Rev. Susie the Floozie, Phat Man Dee, Puzzling Evidence, Dr. Philo Drummond. . . what does any of it matter now?

While this episode features various other weird sounds, such as the Puzzling Evidence show, nice stretches of "live" Hour of Slack with Dr. Hal and Priestess Pisces, recorded on the Brushwood main stage, and music from 12 X-Day by The Amino Acids and Fat Free, much of it -- the heavily-edited parts that sound like they're recorded outdoors in the cold, cold wind -- are from a little recorder that was in Rev. Ivan Stang's preachin' jacket pocket during the morning of July 5, as the SubGeniuses awaited the arrival of the alien Escape Saucers and the end of the world. Also heard are the gathered SubGeniuses' reactions when things didn't go quite as planned.

This is another "X-Day Drill Variety Show." With an opening collage by talented newcomers, its skeleton is a "Live Hour of Slack" performed from the Brushwood stage-studio in front of an audience, involving mostly Dr. Hal, Rev. Susie the Floozie, Priestess Pisces, and a revealing interview with Rev. Angry Larry (grunt for The Amino Acids). Interspersed are songs by Phat Man Dee, The Amino Acids, John Deere Tractor Beam, actual secret recordings of the forbidden SubGenius bonfire and sacred-book-burning, insertions from the Puzzling Evidence show, and a great pulpit-pounding rant by new preacher Rev. Crazy Jim Jones. And Fernandinande LeMur is never very far away.
