Something new! Stang describes and reads from Rev. Lee Cipher's new SubGenius book: his PHD dissertation "Rhetorical Ripples: The Church of the SubGenius, Kenneth Burke, and Comic Symbolic Tinkering." It's wild! A serious academic look at the Church! Full of big words, but also lots of keen illustrations, with much rare stuff from Stang's online SubG History course at Maybe Logic Academy. After Lonecow Dave calls in, the conversation alters somewhat in nature, as has been known to happen, and becomes a Theological Hotline. Some of it is in reprehensible taste. The show ends with a pretty spectacular new, er, "song" by Rev. Bern Brijis. You would never know from listening to this that Rev. Stang had to repair three different malfunctioning station machines just before this show started.

This starts with SubGenius shout-outs by Timothy Leary, the Firesign Theatre, and Penn Jillette, which we put at the beginning for those who wanted to hear the old clips without having to listen to Hours of Slack. Then it's another cross section of best unreleased SubG DoktorMusic of the last few years -- but it's intercut with 1981 recordings of Stang's spontaneous hate rants, recorded in a car while driving to and from crappy jobs in the sweltering Dallas heat. This is the way Stang talked when not being restrained from saying anything that might offend dipshits. The original collection of rants was on a cassette tape entitled "The Hate of the Stang Brain." The great songs are by Munky Hyv, 6 Fisted Tails of Connie (misidentified in the credits by Stang on the show, who was rendered feeble-minded by anger that night), Andrew the Impaled with his uberclassic "Saucer Built for One," The Mutant Mountain Boys, and Rev. G. Don Trubey.

Whooo-doggies, this one should hopefully piss somebody off. It was Easter and SubGeniuses had been writing and posting some pretty hot rants on the Scrubgenius forum, and Stang got to reading them on the air, including "Slack Is" by Rev. Dr. Shoggoth and "Easter is Freedom Day" by Rev. Biggerstaff. The first half is "New Old Bobsongs Best-Of, continued" with music by The El Queso All Stars, Max Slack, The Large, Jere Faison, Rev. Wilhelm Stahlhelm, The Mutant Mountain Boys, Phat ManDee and Rev. Du8. Once Dave calls in and it goes live, Stang, who had become somewhat irritable during the week due to reading the news nonstop, releases the Crazy Preacher Kraken against "Tealiban" Christians who have lately been playing the Oppressed Victim Card with the help of the most popular "news" networks. It's so sad that ignorant fat white Christian right-wing poebucker macho men are such an oppressed minority these days. Let's all weep for 'em.
