The only contestant missing from this Battle of the SubGenius Radio Broadcast All-Star series is Rev. Susie the Floozie's show, but her show stayed in Atlanta while Hour of Slack drove to San Francisco (and promptly sprained one of its four ankles). Rev. Ivan Stang, Puzzling Evidence, Dr. Philo Drummond, and Dr. Hal did a total of five two-hour broadcasts recently, and by phone joined WCSB's Radio Synaesthesia for yet a sixth show with Lonesome Cowboy Dave and Dr. Sinister drawn into the mix. (While in California, Stang was also interviewed for the NPR show "To the Best of Our Knowledge, to air March 11, last we heard.) The first 23 minutes of this episode include the report of the SubGenius Pope of China, Rev. Shining Path of Least Resistance, to the Puzzling Evidence show regarding his recent tour of NORTH KOREA. (A copy of the SubGenius movie ARISE! is somewhere in North Korea now.) That's followed by a rare DEVO cover of a NIN song, an amazing overdub of the Gary G'broagfran song "Bohandas Man," more of our favorite moments from the various shows -- especially one with Rev. Kaosmic BobKat (Mrs. Drummond) also in the studio -- and two priceless calls by the great Rev. Michael Peppe to Puzzling Evidence. Next week, we will begin mixing this "all-star show battle" material with more traditional (sic) Hour of Slack-type clips, plus the first of StangDoe's dozens of SubGenius Family Vacation audio reports.

Last month, our show went wild in San Francisco and collided with several Puzzling Evidence and Ask Dr. Hal radio shows, as well as making emergency phone-ins to Radio Synaesthesia in Cleveland. We have attempted to categorize the endless clips from these 10 hours of SubGenius all-star radio, and one result is this peculiar episode. Listeners will notice that, maddeningly, Dr. Philo Drummond, Master Manipulator, keeps steering the various conversations back to two subjects. Stang is heard going berserk in reaction, on two different shows. Guests and hosts include Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Puzzling Evidence, Dr. Philo Drummond, Dr. Hal, Dr. Sinister, Princess Wei 'R.' Doe, Dr. Gary G'broagfran, Rev. Ivan Stang, Phineas Narco and many mysterious callers. Future episodes will include some devastating reports from yet other callers, as well as location recordings of this year's ankle-breaking and truncated SubGenius Foundation Family Road Trip Adventure.

While in San Francisco for three weeks recently, Hour of Slack became intertwined with three of The Puzzling Evidence Shows from KPFA Berkeley, two Ask Dr. Hal Show podcasts on Radio Valencia, and a Radio Synaesthesia from WCSB Cleveland. This particular episode had to be assembled quickly, so it is comprised of the best/longest clips from several of those shows, the ones that needed the least editing. Spouters include Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Puzzling Evidence, Dr. Philo Drummond, Dr. Hal, Dr. Sinister, Princess Wei 'R.' Doe, Dr. Gary G'broagfran, Rev. Ivan Stang, Phineas Narco and many mysterious callers. When we have time to sit down and do some serious editing, future shows will include appropriate clips from the aforementioned, mixed with location recordings made by StangDoe, including reviews of many national monument, state park and rest stop restrooms.

Here we offer highlights from one of the best devivals ever, the one sponsored in Indianapolis in 2002 by the Quijibo Cartel. Pope Phred's M.C.-ing glues together performances by StAllio, Saint N and Hellena Handbasket, Stang with a variation on SubGenius 101, and the classic Papa Joe Mama rant called "Reparations." Clips from live ESO and Puzzling Evidence radio shows spice it all up, along with some LeMur and other collagery.
