Rampant theological unseemliness abounds in this free-for-all-except-the-slaves. Lonesome Cowboy Dave, out of the hospital again, gets us all worked up about God's dress. Terrible news of the day is discuss-ted. P.R. Gnus returns. We hear quotations from The Enchiridion of Epictetus, ancient philosophy recently republished by A Man of Letters (Onan Canobite), and we learn all about the historical Cleopatra from Hal and Philo. Old music from ESO joins new from The Rudy Schwartz Project, The Fantastic Plastics, Rev, Jimmy Ryan, Rural War Room and Miss Murphy the Bearded Lady. Also, the word of "Bob" Dobbs and the Church of the SubGenius.

Lonesome Cowboy Dave was sick, so this is a Daveless live show, with Rev. Stang reading cool stuff such as a great rant by The Good Rev. Roger, and more of the juicy parts from Gulliver's Travels (1726). Also featured is music by and a discussion about the recent Sanza music CD of Halim "Pharoah" El-Dabh and Ron "Pyrosonic" Slabe. Instead of Dave and Stang blabbering, it's Dr. Hal and Dr. Drummond from an old Puzzling Evidence show. The music however is all new from The Fantastic Plastics, The Rudy Schwartz Project, The Psycho Skeletons, Rev. Jimmy Ryan and Rural War Room. The RWR pieces especially will rip your head in twain if you listen in headphones or brainbuds.

Rev. Stang reads selections from Gulliver's Travels -- the passages in which Gulliver needs to go to the bathroom, but the bathrooms are all either too small or too large. Lonesome Cowboy Dave provides his own insights into the great Jonathan Swift novel of 1726. Stangs gets all worked up about Trump and the value of boredom. First, though, there's a great rant by Rev. Susie the Floozie about "Bob," "Bob" hymns by Rev. Bleepo Abernathy and Mark Mothersbaugh, two count 'em two new Rudy Schwartz Project pieces, Jimmy Ryan guitar, and some discussion of haters by Dr. Philo Drummond and Dr. Hal on The Puzzling Evidence Show.

First live show from WCSB in six months! The Daves and StangDoes invent several new languages, partially inspired by the book "Southern Sayin's for Yankees and Other Immigrants." Before that, however, there is an amazing collage by Rev. Susie the Floozie about "Bob" and Connie, and new music is unveiled by The Rudy Schwartz Project (covering The Shaggs!!!), Rev. Jimmy Ryan and Rural War Room, plus a brand new "Bob" hymn by Rev. Morgan Gutentag. There are also some cold, wet sound effects and a canned recording from Stang Ranch about the Stang Ranch dinosaur tracks and what other creatures may be leaving footprints in those parts.

Back in 1994, Hour of Slack came from Dallas, but we used a lot of material recorded whenever Rev. Stang visited Cleveland and sat in on the late Chas Smith's show, "ESO Radio/Brain Rot Theater" on WCSB. One of the best chunks of one of the best of those shows, "Lonesome Cowboy Dave in Space," comprises the majority of this. Many listeners thought it was SCRIPTED! What was scripted however was the intro to the show, detailing the truly dire deadlines and circumstances of The SubGenius Foundation at that time. Also includes music from Nenslo, The Rudy Schwartz Project and Doktorz 4 "Bob".
