First half: a sampling of the best SubGenius-made Bobsongs and hymns that we're compiling for a series of albums spanning Church music from 2008 to the present. Contributors include The Mutant Mountain Boys, Lost Souls Inc., Christian Blatter, The Swinging Love Corpses, Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Heart Ignition, Brainleak, Chas Smith, LeMur, Poo Water Towel and the great Rev. Bill T. Miller, King of Slack. Second half: SMOTE BE IT, BABY; If Ya Got 'Em, Smote 'Em. Lonesome Cowboy Dave and his babysitters, Stang and Doe, tackle the most profound problems facing humanity and SubGeniusdom today, such as baldness.

Lots of new music in this (Bern Brijis, Steev Inglish, Amoeba Knievel, Joe Zeziorski, Psycho Skeletons) and a truly gut-splitting sermon about Excremeditation by Dr. G. Gordon Gordon, but mostly it is some "Best of Puzzling Evidence" as selected by Rev. Baby Bear and Rev. Stang. The main spouters are Dr. Hal and Dr. Philo Drummond, and they do some killer verbal riffs about Church doctrine as well as a science lesson that you'll never forget, especially if you google the images they suggest!

The WCSB studio phones were broken this night -- and so was the whole studio! Yet we broadcast anyway. The first half of the show features one song each by the bands that will perform at the March 21 Winterstar Ball in Cleveland: Rev. Phat ManDee, Muruga Booker and the Cosmic Hoedown band, Steev Inglish, Brian Henke, Mayan Ruins and Sister Melodious Chops (the band Wei is in). (The Ball is a benefit for ACE/Starwood and the late Jeff Rosenbaum.) The second half is Stang reading rants by Phineas Narco and The Good Rev. Roger, and twenty solid minutes of uncut Puzzling Evidence Show with Dr. Philo Drummond and Dr. Hal, with a very interesting discussion of the ins and outs of managing a sperm bank.

Body Image and Daylight Savings Time: Space Control Vs. Time Control
We were feeling frisky this time, possibly because of the Daylight Savings Time change that happened the night before. The opening 15 minutes includes some collages by a new contributor, Rev. Carlton, and a classic Father Joe Mama rant. "The LUV of "Bob." Also, the Wolfman gets counselling in a clip from THE HOUSE OF DRACULA. But then we go live, and Dave calls in, and it gets pretty darned cosmical and Time-Control-y. Stang reads a short rant on DST by Rev. Zafod. The marvels of Creationism are discussed at length. Dave reveals that he has the DNA of Jesus in him, which leads to a discussion of possibly isolating that God gene, cloning God, then sending Him back in time to stop the Big Bang from happening and thus allowing PURE Slack to continue forever. Or something. Oh and TUROK, SON OF STONE is fully analyzed. Yet another British hard rock version of THE BRAG OF THE SUBGENIUS is played.

We took a break to play this pre-recorded episode of somebody else's show! It was their idea, too. Last week Rev. Stang was interviewed for a podcast called PROJECT ARCHIVIST (projectarchivist.com). Since it isn't a SubGenius show, Stang actually EXPLAINS the Church of the SubGenius, "Bob" Dobbs, and everything else important. It's completely different from the "normal" Hour of Slack in that in this one, Stang barks almost the whole time, WITHOUT DAVE! There's some Lemurian collagery first, and then 48 minutes of the Project Archivist show. A song by Popess Pantiara and a Steaming Sack of Slack close the show.
