Presenting the first of the EDITED 16 X-Day shows, utilizing choice tracks recorded live at X-Day "2013," with a post-X-Day Synaesthesia talk show forming a rude "skeleton" for the "meat" of live performances. As Dr. Hal & Rev. Stang reminisce, we cut to the subjects of their reveries: the Naked Bobtism, the Bulldada Auction, a truly powerful new song by Andrew the Impaled, music by The Slot Rods, Piscean ranting with Uncountable-Fisted Tails of Connie, collages by Rev. Susie the Floozie, The Mutant Mountain Boys' unique back-up singer, and the rain. The seemingly endless rain. (It wasn't actually all that endless, just ill-timed.)

Dr. Hal joined Stang, Doe, Dr. Sinister & Lonesome Cowboy Dave for one last broadcast show at WCSB Cleveland before 16X-Day, but then they talked about almost everything but X-Day, and in an unusually lively manner. Subjects include: Blown blue whales. The Moreau Option and maleable genetics. Monsterdome in Texas. Cowboy outlaw honcho cheroot spouting! The upside-saddle. The Bizarro SubGenius World. ACTUAL PHOTO OF "BOB"!! COSMIC DOBBSTOWN X-DAY RANT. Feral babies in Cleveland sewers. The Declension, the Clenched Fist, and The Rulership. Third Nostril boogers and baby devils or imps. Gran-mal paranoia. Giant Women Movies. We are mere hours from The End - Recess. At the beginning: collages mostly from the early SubGenius Media Barrages and alt.binaries.slack (by Stang, Werner, Drummond, Hambone, LeMur etc.); a fine collage by Rev. Susie the Floozie closes things.
This quintet of yakkers went on that night for another two hours of radio on Dr. Sinister's show, Radio Synaesthesia. Clips from that will probably be rerun here later, but not necessarily in sequence.

Dr. Hal and Rev. Stang returned from the rugged and muddy X-Day campground to Cleveland's WCSB just in time to razz Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Dr. Sinister and all seven listeners about everything they missed by not camping in the rain this year. They actually missed a lot, and our sympathies go out to all like them. We are running this breathless immediate report first, but it will be followed by the pre-and-post X-Day "2013" recordings, more or less chronologically, for probably the next 20 Hours of Slack. This year's unique physical challenges probably generated some of the best moments that were captured. Luckily, the location and soundboard recordings all sound great, which almost makes up for the world NOT ENDING, GOD DAMN IT! Oh well. Back to the old drawing and quartering board.
