This is the last and best hour of the Feb. 4 Puzzling Evidence show, in which Rev. Ivan Stang and Princess Wei guested with the regular cast, including host Puzzling Evidence, Dr. Philo Drummond, Dr. Hal, Bishop Joey of The First Church of the Last Laugh, and some funny callers. Funny in the head. The show is full of lies; for instance, Stang and Wei did not actually return to the Cleveland SubGenius office until Feb. 22. Balancing the lies are important truths. If you can tell us the difference, we'd love to hear it. Bracketing the 50 minutes of mouth-spew are some collages by Puzzling Evidence. Next week's show, in theory a "normal" one, will probably reveal details of the quest behind our travels.

On Jan 28, 2011, Rev. Stang and Princess Wei joined Puzzling Evidence and Dr. Philo Drummond at KPFA in Berkeley for an hour and a half of live Show, of which this is the uncut LAST half hour – followed by the FIRST half hour of the Feb. 4 Puzzling Evidence show, for which Stang and Wei stuck around and were joined by the larger regular cast, including Dr. Hal and Bishop Joey of The First Church of the Last Laugh. The combination of the two broadcasts from a week apart illustrates perfectly why Dr. Hal is always needed, everywhere.

On Jan 28, 2011, Rev. Stang and Princess Wei joined Puzzling Evidence and Dr. Philo Drummond at KPFA in Berkeley for an hour and a half of live Show, of which this is the uncut first hour. This episode is of scholarly interest because Stang, Drummond and Puzzling Evidence are practically the first three hyperactive devotees of J.R. “Bob” Dobbs after he let the Church go public. (Puzzling Evidence later shot “Bob.”) Content ranges from hilarious new discoveries to the maudlin reminiscing of old SubMen.

What's startling about this classic episode is that, even though it was recorded in May 2002, it might as well have been recorded yesterday, SO LITTLE HAVE THINGS CHANGED. For that matter, the many excerpts from 1983's SubGenius Media Barrage Tape #5 sound even more relevant now than they did then! It is as if the Church of the SubGenius is always one jump ahead of the Conspiracy, if only in knowledge. (Think if it were POWER!) The centerpiece of this show is a recording of a truly brilliant -- and terrifying -- rant by Father Joe Mama, recorded in Hamburg, Germany. Everything about the show echoes uncannily and creepily with today's headlines. ((NOTE: We'll be back to new shows next week; this is the last rerun.))
