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

Most of this episode is from 1993, and therefore wonderfully old school. Puzzling Evidence, The Swingin' Love Corpses, Radio Shorts, Phineas Narco, Dr. Howll, The Rudy Schwartz Project, Zoogz Rift, Nenslo's Bobbie Hating Rant read by Stang, Drs. 4 "Bob," Church of New Faith, Jay Condom, Rev. Susie the Floozy on Connie, The Sterrills, ESO Radio with Bishop Joey from the First Church of the Last Laugh, and much much more unmoored. ALL RADIO SAFE.

RADIO SAFE VERSION! What are the holidays without Slack and reruns? Sappy, nostalgia-provoking reruns on TV are what Christmas is all about, right? Plus, it gives us a break. This is the hoary old annual traditional Xmas Re-Rerun of #867 (and 921 and 1026, 1077, 1129, 1236, 1338, 1497, 1549, 1602, 1654, 1705, 1758, 1810 etc.), which was itself a condensation of some ancient year's 3-show "Best of Xmas Sickness" compilation, which were themselves the concentrated best-of from 15 years' worth of previous Xmas SubGenius and other Xmas weirdo collections, going back to the show's beginning in 1985 at KNON, Dallas. Includes over 66 separate tracks/songs/bits! And no, not one bit has been changed in all these years. Now that's Slack!

Note: only the last two songs are full of cussing.

One COULD say that every SubGenius radio show was a spin-off from another SubGenius radio show, in a kind of endless Uroborus circle jerk. If Rev. Susie the Floozie's "Bob's" Slack Time Funhouse spun off Hour of Slack (which was preceeded by The Puzzling Evidence Show), The Lymph Node Institute was by far the best of several Funhouse spin-offs. This example proves it. Prepare to use your brain in a new, albeit not NECESSARILY better, way. Probably better. The music and ranting between songs -- just perfect! (RADIO SAFE)

We'll do fresh shows again someday. This thousand-episode-old show is probably better, though. This one has a little of everything plus a couple of amazingly well done "Bob" hymns that haven't been heard in a long time, and two (!) classic sermons by Father Joe Mama. Lots of ESO Swamp Radio with Chas, Dave, Stang and Wei, The Swingin' Love Corpses, Zoogz Rift, Little Fyodor, The Pink Boyz, and some old-timey Stang ranting. Stang, incidentally, is not dead, just taking it real easy for a change.

A rerun of a rerun of a rerun! We must wonder how deep they'll eventually go, drilling into the past -- perhaps to avoid an uncertain future? Or just to reanimate greatness long thought extinct, like the recreation of mammoths from frozen DNA? Perhaps an even more pertinent question: who cares? 

HoS #447 (rerun as #859 in 2002) was a 1994 compilation of some of the best bits from the 1991 Hour of Slack and KPFA shows regarding the Gulf War, with some things that came later, especially a collage video by Patriris. A highlight is the Kyle Kossup song, "America Feels Good About Itself." Some 2002 live ESO radio on the then-current War Thing fills it out.

It is uncanny how perfectly appropriate the January 1991 Gulf War material sounded in October 2002 and now sounds in 2021.
