The SubGenius Hour of Slack Podcast
The Church of the SubGenius Weekly Radio Ministry

This one's not EXACTLY a rerun. It's partly made from episode #139, in which Dr. G. Gordon Gordon gets Stang hooked on Human Soul. There's also some old ranting by Stang from stuff he wrote for the Stark Fist of Removal magazine, and an an exclusive interview with The Swingin' Love Corpses about their drug use. We also hear clips from Sad Dog Diary, by Ze Frank, found on YouTube, and LBJ explaining that "Dogs has always been mah friend." Stang reads from Dobbstown Mirror and also Onan's Sermon on Brains.

((RADIO SAFE VERSION)) This episode is different because it’s so CHEERY. Don’t worry, it’s still sick and twisted; it’s just that moods improved at Stang Ranch with the improved weather, vaccines, and animal behavior. Also, the new Dobbstown Mirror came out, and that’s always cause for celebration and on-air readings. The music in this one is a real mix, with everything from old show tunes to old-school rock and roll to punk to Doktormusic and The Swinging’ Love Corpses — but all cheery or at least spazzy and funny. The Drummond Brothers are featured on Puzzling Evidence clips as well as the Corpses tunes. Old ESO Radio and even older Firesign Theatre are interspersed. Stang reveals the plans for X-Day 2021 at the end.

Some listeners may want to use ear protection. Most of this episode is straight out of Cleveland. The bulk of it is by Sheridan, the mysterious weirdo, who provided another massive 45-minute media barrage. At the end we hear a classic tune from Cleveland's Einstein Secret Orchestra, and some acid garage punk jazz by The Swingin' Love Corpses.

This episode is NOTHING AT ALL like any recent episodes, or any old ones for that matter. It's almost entirely created by the Cleveland weirdo SHERIDAN, albeit using lots of SubGenius clips amid inexplicable things from his own collection. He wanted to give Stang a break so he did two almost-whole shows, of which is this the first. There is a break in the middle for rare, just-unearthed songs by Nenslo and The Swingin' Love Corpses.  ((CLEAN FOR RADIO!)

This episode is exactly like the last three, in that it has the same elements: ESO Swamp Radio from 2001, Puzzling Evidence from 2012, ancient rare Firesign Theatre, and Captain Beefheart. Saves time. Allowed us to get the Kindle version of our new book EYELASH out. We start with the late Prof. Chas Smith explaining the origins of Lonesome Cowboy Dave. Later there is an all-star Puzzling Evidence show, and more ESO, with call-ins from superstars Rev. Bleepo Abernathy, Michael Peppe, Popess Lilith, Bishop Joey of Church of the Last Laugh, and Dr. Phineas Narco of National Cynical... but not Dr. Hal. Towards the end, Philo Drummond and Ivan Stang revert to their true identities as Arkansas hog farmers.

((CLEAN FOR RADIO)) "Nobody's biography has a happy ending!" -- the late Dr. K'taden Legume

This one's heavy on the Puzzling Evidence, an unusual episode from 2012 without Dr. Hal but with Rev. Stang and Dr. Philo Drummond. Rev. Phineas Narco joins by phone. Also: ESO Swamp Radio in the muddy, muddy flesh, The Firesign Theatre from Dope Humor of the Seventies, The Rudy Schwartz Project's Sunshine Supershits, Captain Beefheart, The Psycho Skeletons and Tenacious D. Those were the days. The days of old. Of old people and old Puzzling Evidence tapes.

((CLEAN FOR RADIO)) An all-obscure-star cast! Rev. Bleepo Abernathy, Prof. Chas Smith, Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Rev. Shining Path of Least Resistance, Phineas Narco, Dr. Philo Drummond and Kaosmic MamaKat, caller Taxi Bob, Bohandas (!!), The Firesign Theatre, Captain Beefheart, Paul Mavrides, Dr. Legume, Rev. Penn Jillette, Papa Joe Mama, even Rev. Funnyname! The highlight is probably the report from Rev. Shining Path of Least Resistance to Puzzling Evidence Show on his surreal visit to North Korea. Rev. Stang reads a poem by Oliver Wendell Holmes and reveals the new Revelations of Rev. Xenofact. He also reads an angry letter from an ex-fan.

((RADIO SAFE VERSION))

All the music in this episode is from Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band, and the album Doc at the Radar Station, except the very last song and one singing commercial by The Firesign Theater. There is a wise poem by Onan Canobite. All the rest of this episode is taken from The SubGenius Foundation's 2001 collection of best clips from ESO Swamp Radio (WCSB-Cleveland), the great show of the late Chas Smith, on which Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Stang, Princess Wei and Bleepo Abernathy were honored to be regulars. If regulars is the correct term. Probably not.

Or is it the lighter side of The Dark? Either way, this is another SubGenius "Silver Age" collection, although there's a brand new rant-song by new contributor Rev. Trevor B. (No relation.) Killer rare clips from The Firesign Theatre, Puzzling Evidence, ESO Swamp Radio,  and the SubGenius documentary movie (which is now free on Amazon Prime and YouTube). The Wei-Stang Clan was hoping to do a new "live" show this week, but two abandoned puppy dogs suddenly showed up on our doorstep, and they've been keeping everybody extra busy with their funny cavorting and pooping. The boy pup is named Yeti and the girl pup is Chupacabra. We think they are mostly German Shepherd so we reckon they will be large. The cats, however, are NOT amused. ((Whole show is CLEAN for radio.))

Stang sings (?) a little January 20 ditty at the beginning of this Internet version that's not on the Radio version.

The first full-length SubGenius science fiction novel, EYELASH by Nikolai Kingsley, is now available, and Rev. Stang reads an excerpt from it. He also reads the latest Dobbs.town Mirror (in stages) as well as a new rant by Onan. Interspersed are classic best-of bits from The Puzzling Evidence Show and ESO Swamp Radio (all from 2001-2002) and some more very rare Firesign Theatre from their early radio days. We also hear Paul Mavrides and Penn Jillette talking about the Church, from the new documentary. There’s one song, a hidden track by Morgan Gutentag, titled, “Hidden Track.” Everything else is gravy, or, LeMur. (INTERNET VERSION = RADIO SAFE)

RADIO SAFE VERSION -

The only new thing in this episode is a clip about the history of The Book of the SubGenius from Sandy Boone's new movie. Stang mispronounces Nick Offerman's name in the credits but that's understandable since Stang is very, very old now -- as are these amazing best-of selections from The Puzzling Evidence Show, ESO Swamp Radio/Hour of Slack (both from 2001-2002), and unbelievable rare clips from The Firesign Theatre's recent release of their earliest radio work, a collection called Dope Humor of the Seventies. This kind of show is easier for Stang to assemble as he heals up from doing something stupid to his own backbones. And it's much more fun than just using reruns.
