We have some GREAT new music (The Attery Squash, SODDI, Mutant Mountain Boys, Kenneth Jonsson, The Duke of Uke, and the grand southern mission of the first thing that came into my bobslack) and some of the best ranting from the Portland Cyclone of Slack devival from last October: Dr. Hal, Rev. Crawford Smith, and Dr. Onan Canobite. There's also a goodly stretch of Radio Synaesthesia, involving Lonesome Cowboy Dave. It's all peppered with wonderful ear-humping collages by LeMur, Phineas Narco, Rev. Sweetness McGee, Rev. Eric, The Large, and Wilhelm Stahlhelm.

Every year, the great Cleveland station WCSB has a pledge drive or "Radiothon," and we at Hour of Slack love this one single time each year, when we are able to legally grub for money just like regular Christian evangelists. You see, the stations that carry Hour of Slack are all public-supported and thus we can't exactly advertise. Even during pledge drives, we can only grub money for the station. And boy, do we! Because this episode may be aired by other stations, and because the WCSB pledge drive is already over, we have reversed or cut the Cleveland phone number for pledges from these copies. But, if you want to pledge, the phone number is: 216-687-6900. Or, you can always mail or Paypal your pledge to email@example.com, aka SubGenius, PO Box 181417, Cleveland Hts OH 44118. Or (and this is probably easiest) just buy something from subgenius.com. Praise "Bob."

This is a rerun of episode number 374 from early 1993, when we were still in Dallas. We have lots of recordings on hand from the recent devival in Portland, but we are in the middle of a somewhat larger SubGenius project and rather than edit those new cuss-filled rantings, we're saving time with this fine rerun, which includes readings from REVELATION X, the SubGenius book that was in progress at the time. Incidentally, there is now an archive of mp3s of hundreds of old, uncut Hours of Slack from the 90s, free for downloading, and if you want to check those out, see subgenius.com and click on the RADIO button in the upper left. That will show you links to the old shows, hundreds of newer shows, and text logs of every track on every show. You can even... subscribe. There is a Church devival in Detroit on Nov. 28, with The Amino Acids and many more, and weekly subrants by Pope Mike Flores in Chicago every week of December -- for info see the EVENTS page at subgenius.com.

17 years ago! This one is a mix of recordings from various SubGenius shows at various stations, including KPFA's Puzzling Evidence and Cleveland's WCSB from long before the SubGenius Foundation moved to Cleveland! You'll hear people who have long since been unpersoned, and much younger voices of people you now think of as old. There's also some great kook, prank-call and Bad Music material for the bulldada collectors. Hopefully you will be inspired to donate to the WCSB.org pledge drive coming up next week. We could all use a donation, actually. DID I MENTION that there is a SubGenius devival with the Amino Acids in Detroit this November 28, and weekly devivals in Chicago all through December? No? Well, see subgenius.com events for details. And with that, we hop into the wayback machine and vanish, backwards!
