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

X-Day Drill, July 5, Conspiracy Year 1998 - A broken Rev. Susie the Floozie survived the bitter disappointment of the world not ending on that prophesied day, and as therapy, she created this classic episode of her show on WREK-Atlanta, "Bob's" Slack Time Funhouse. Her uncanny ability to pluck pertinent lines from old TV shows and edit them into a new story is certainly on display here. Susie also plays herself and her terrible alter ego Evil Susie, who is even more sadistic than Conky, the evil alter ego puppet of beloved Trailer Park Boy, Bubbles. She utilized several blues and torch songs by superstar women singers of yore, who unfortunately go uncredited in this truncated version of her original 1.5 hour show. It is RADIO SAFE.

RADIO SAFE VERSION - 13X-Day Drill, July 3, Conspiracy Year 2010 - we recorded an Hour of Slack show on stage before a live audience with Dr. Hal, Rev. Susie the Floozie, Dr. Philo Drummond, Lonesome Cowboy Dave and Rev. Ivan Stang. Except for Puzzling Evidence, these are the SubGenii to blame for the three hoary SubGenius radio shows that have been on the air for decades -- up to three decades, in fact. That show is intercut with new collages by Rev. Heart Ignition, sermons from 13 X-Day by Rev. D. Lister and Rev. Richard Skull, and a jam/song by 6 Fisted Tails of Connie (Philo, Pisces, Rev. Angry Larry, Rev. Suds Pshaw, Rev. Phil, Rev. Bunny Day on this particular line-up).

Rerun of #534 (1996)! We are now off-world (or about to be), and refuse to produce new shows. Instead, we present a beloved oldie. And we are presenting it two weeks early, as we will be either on the Saucers or at Starwood, and won't want to mess with posting shows then. Back in 1996, just before the very first X-Day Drill at Brushwood, Stang assembled this ultimate X-Day collage, song and rant special, utilizing the best UFO-related clips from our old Media Barrage albums (from the 1980s!) as well as the finest new stuff of the time, such as Nenslo's X-Day anthem and Papa Joe Mama's first X-Day sermon. You'll hear the infant voices of Puzzling Evidence, Dr. Philo Drummond, Dr. Hal, Satellite Weavers, Pope David N. Meyer, Buck Naked... all the Churchly old-timers back when they were mere 30-somethings and even 20-somethings. It is a trip back in time -- and yet, a trip into a BRAVE BRAVE FUTURE!

Our friend Sister Melodious Chops rather suddenly boarded the Saucers last week, and this is an obituary show. She was more widely known, especially in the Cleveland music scene, as Vicky Ganger. Her folk trio, Victoria Ganger and Revelry, included Princess Wei 'R.' D'oh. Besides recordings some of the best hymns to "Bob" (and Connie), Vicky composed dozens of funny, touching, and inspirational songs, which she and the two Revelry Chicks performed at many Ohio clubs, SubGenius devivals, and especially the pagan music festivals Starwood and Winterstar. She was a treasured part of both the SubGenius and pagan weirdo communities, which overlap quite a bit in some places, and she will be sorely missed. This episode features her three "Bob" (and Connie) songs and several of her whimsical songs about modern life, especially the Internet. Also included is a Zappa medley performed by The Empire Jazz Orchestra... which is conducted by our pal Rev. Billy, a recent guest at Stang Ranch.
