Typical of shows recorded live from the WCSB studio, we start with 15 minutes of music and collages by The Large, LeMur, The Psycho Skeletons, and ancient Media Barrage clips from the pre-Hour of Slack 90-minute SubGenius collages of yore. The Duke of Uke closes the show. In between, it's thousand-mile-a-minute yammering by "Bob's" three old stooges, Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Princess Wei 'R.' Doe, and Rev. Ivan Stang. The upcoming elections are discussed at length. The recording of the very first alien abduction of Philo and Ivan (from the late '70s) is replayed for the first time in a few decades.

Some very new, some very old! Lots of collages by The Large and LeMur are interspersed with songs, Part One of an amazing rant about religion by Sam Singleton, The Atheist Evangelist (more to come in the weeks ahead), and a live show from the Wisteria café with Papa Joe Mama, Dr. Hal, Priestess Pisces, G. Gordon Gordon and Rev. Stang. We hear music by The Duke of Uke, Phat ManDee with Dr. Hal and Wei. Also included is an extremely old-school Stang rant about X-Day and a very bizarre clip of Stang and Lonesome Cowboy Dave on ESO Swamp Radio from the olden days.

Hour of Slack #1377 -- THE BUTTHURT OF THE SUBGENIUS - Dr. Legume, Papa Joe Mama Holocaustal MegaSermons
We proudly present two of the best SubGenius hellfire sermons ever, both delivered on July 5 "2012" at 15X-Day Drill. Dr. Legume delivers "The Butthurt of the SubGenius," truly a tour-de-force, and Father "Papa" Joe Mama preaches "The Diet of Worms," written on the spot mere minutes before. A reading from St. Palmer Vreedeez' WORLD WITHOUT SLACK starts off the show, which is riddled with shorter songs, clips and rants from Dr. G. Gordon Gordon, Several Fisted Tails of Connie live at 15X-Day (pisces on vocals), PR Gnus, The Psycho Skeletons, and X-Day radio from the Wisteria stage with Rev. Stang, Dr. Hal and Papa Joe. Further muddying the mix, we pour in UFO-and-Apocalypse-related collages from the olden days of the Media Barrage tapes and rants from late-1980s Hours of Slack. This kick-ass guitar work heard throughout the show is by Rev. Frodis "Suds" Pshaw and Rev. Angry Larry, with Bishop Stick on bass stick.

The centerpiece of this episode is the edited recording of the events that took place on the Wisteria field, in the middle of the huge stone circle, at 7 a.m. July 5 (in a year that turns out to definitely NOT be 1998), followed by a heart-rending sermon by Rev. Susie the Floozie. Songs by The Mutant Mountain Boys and mini-rants by G. Gordon Gordon bracket the show, which also includes the last of the live radio done from the Wisteria café stage the day before the world ended, in this case with Dr. Hal, Priestess Pisces, Dr. Legume and Rev. Stang. There's some actual "Doktor" music, plus a touching song by Pisces and "Suds" Pshaw (with apologies to Leonard Cohen), recorded about 2 hours after they were married. Mr. Fernandinande LeMur presents fresh PR Gnus.
