The SubGenius Hour of Slack Podcast (podcasts)
The Church of the SubGenius Weekly Radio Ministry

RADIO SAFE VERSION: Rev. Stang has been busy with video projects, book projects, broken projectors, a dried-up dryer, a late Medicare payment, the rewiring of the DobbsHed shed with the ancient tapes in it, in 100 degree heat, and, he must mail all those orders to Australia, AGAIN, now that the paranoid Covid mail ban has been lifted there and also in New Zealand. Both of which nations host many SubGeniuses. ANYWAY... here is what Rev. Stang wrote about this episode right after he threw it together from carefully crafted individual pieces, in 2003: "This is The Greatest Hour of Slack Ever. I know I often say that, but this time it's true for sure. The live ESO shows of the last 3 weeks have been WAR TALK and X-Day Hankerin'. The best in those veins that wasn't TOTALLY stupid, yet was still gut-blowingly hilarious - yet horrifying, considering the subject matter - went into this one. Also, Mister F. Le Mur cranked out noise like he previously cranked out art. I guess Le Mur is now the Slack man's Terry Gilliam to the Slack man's Monty Python, in that he does a lot of the show, yet he's never heard.  "This show furthermore contains an Artemia Salina chop-up which should get lots of future replay as it's copied and bounced around audio sarcasm collectors. And, the newly Hour of Slacked Hank Flloyd and the Swerving Headlights presents yet ANOTHER great alien abduction C&W ballad."

Rerun of 2003's Hour of Slack 882 - WAR & X-Day

RADIO SAFE VERSION. First, it's part two of four from the recent podcast called "My Family Thinks I'm Crazy," in which Rev. Stang had a lot of fun with the young weirdos hosting it. Then, from the Puzzling Evidence show on KPFA Berkeley, in the year of 2013, Dr. Drummond, Dr. Hal, and D. Woodman Atwell tell THE TRUTH ABOUT HEDY LAMAR! It gets mixed later with samples of Ask Dr. Hal Show with Michael Peppe, Ed Holmes, and Rusty Rebar.

RADIO SAFE VERSION. Two completely different half hours! One is part of a recent interview with Ivan Stang on the video podcast My Family Thinks I'm Crazy, mostly talking about the old days of SubGenius. Lying, actually. The other is an Ask Dr. Hal show on Radio Valencia from around 2013 with Dr. Hal, Puzzling Evidence, Rusty Rebar, Bubba-Free-Im-Ho-Peppe Michael Peppe, the late Pete Goldie, Dr. Philo Drummond,  and Bishop Joey. It's NOT about the old days.

Your regular host and prayer partner Rev. Ivan Stang is too busy with life, the universe and everything, to blather out a new show, plus, he already underwent two podcast interviews in last two weeks, so maybe we'll play those in the future. But THIS is the past -- it's October 11, 2013, and we're listening to OverMan First Degree Dr. Philo Drummond, the sole guest that night in the KPFA Berkeley studio of The Puzzling Evidence Show. Later in the show, Dr. Hal and Michael Peppe join by phone to rock and shine both boat and boot.

Once again, everything that was happening in this thousand-show-old rerun from 2003 is STILL HAPPENING! Why should poor bent old Rev. Stang stay up all night at his age editing new Show, when the old ones from twenty years ago are MORE MODERN AND NEW? Moreover, at rural Stang Ranch, the Sacred Scribe has had to deal with one crisis per week, such as wildfires, goat sized hail, and sonic tornadoes. This episode is heavy on the ESO Swamp Radio from WCSB Cleveland (during the Iraq war) but is also rife with insane collage work by LeMur and others, plus some real surprises such as "Bob" songs by NoMeansNo and Mick Jagger, and startlingly timely clips from ancient anti-fascist propaganda cartoons! Incidentally, the CD copies of this show are inexplicably about a minute and a half longer than the digital file copies. If anyone can explain that, please do!(Radio safe.)

It must be "Bob's" will that we were forced by events beyond our control to do a rerun yet again, because this is an especially good one we'd have totally forgotten about otherwise.  The ESO Swamp Radio spouting this show was done in early 2003, a few days after the tragic Columbia space shuttle explosion... and yet the space collage by Chas Smith which is also in the show predates it, from around 1998.Special thanks to all the arteests who contributed the collages, especially Fernandinande LeMur.

This is a rerun from last February... the last February of the year 2001. ("2001"-- boy, did those promises NOT come true.) It's SubGenius old-school, and we suspect the old school had better school supplies. Digesting this particular show requires ferreting out the threads of the "theme," that being Early Man: the paleoanthropology of the cave SubGeniuses and their vile vermin pets, the human cave persons. It then morphs into transgender themes of yesteryear, and culminates in the most scientific and indisputable twelve minutes the Church has ever produced: Dr. Ahmed Fishmonger's revelations concerning the Mutron.

Rerun of #868 from 2002 -- so it's an old and very different war, but some things never change. A little bit of everything: ESO Swamp Radio, Puzzling Evidence, Zoogz Rift, a lotta LeMur, Heart Ignition, The Swinging Love Corpses, Heart Ignition, Drexel and so much more. This was when Prof. Chas Smith, Zoogz, and frequent caller Dr. Dark were all still on this earthly plane, and Lonesome Cowboy Dave wasn't really lonesome at all. We couldn't do a new show this week because our old guard dog Buddy got in a civil war with other dogs, and lost, so Stang was busy nursing the battered mutt. Buddy is okay though.

Stang reads lots of Onan from The Dobbstown Mirror (Oct. "2021" issue) and interspurts it with short Lemurian and Prefian collages pieces and new music by Rubix Pube, Bob Walkenhorst, and The Rudy Schwartz Project. There's also old music by The Swingin' Love Corpses and Mandre, and an old rant by the young Dr. G. Gordon Gordon. Radio OK!

A NEW X-DAY REVELATION is unraveled! The whole episode is Stang's annual sermon to the Winterstar Symposium -- the 31st one. It was delivered via Zoom, so the laughter or anger of the audience watching Stang on their screens can't be heard. It is however a full-on pulpit-pounding rant, this particular one derived largely from "text jams" between old SubGenius Doktors such as Dr. Philo Drummond and Rev. Uncle Dr. Onan Canobite. (And Stang reads a pure Onan rant at the end.) Included is an old-school Mass Short Duration Marriage, cult-style, albeit a bit awkward due to being done remotely rather than with the congregationists being able to physically grope one another. YOU WON'T BELIEVE the new news about X-Day!

RADIO SAFE VERSION.

PART TWO OF THE  NEW "LIVE" EPIC TWO-PARTER EPISODE! Stang reads the first chapter of our new book, the SubGenius mystery novel THE AGENT AND MR. DOBBS by Rev. Teeters LaVerge. We continue the conversation with Lonesome Cowboy Dave, but frequently cutting to sound clips that were referenced, such as a long classic clip of The Firesign Theatre from their second album, How Can You Be In Two Places at Once When You're Not Anywhere at All. An interesting aspect of Ennio Morricone's score for The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly is revealed. The infamous Drs. 4 Wotan cover of "Louie Louie" is excerpted then followed by a live recitation by Poo Water Towel. The rest of the latest Sheridan media barrage gets used. PEAS IS MENTIONED! TWICE! The episode ends with an amazing recording of the late Stang Ranch hound dog Dammett doing vocal howl battle with a band of coyotes... probably the best part.

A NEW "LIVE" EPIC TWO-PARTER EPISODE! Lonesome Cowboy Dave can't talk, and Rev. Ivan Stang can't hear. Not the best formula for a successful modern podcast aimed at 13-year-olds, perhaps, and yet on we strive. There's some news, or perhaps just promises, or even some lies, -- indeed, probably all three; also, music from the Stang family, and from Dave's ill-named band. Our new book, the mystery novel THE AGENT AND MR. DOBBS by Rev. Teeters LaVerge, is officially announced as now existing in hardcover. Excerpts are read. Stay tuned for Part Two.

NOT A RERUN! -- and all safe for broadcast, at least in terms of language if not ear or mind health. Sheridan contributed another of his collage shows, but some of it made Stang even more deaf than he was before -- so those noisy sections have been replaced by some clips from old ESO Swamp Radio (also from Cleveland) with host Chas Smith, Lonesome Cowboy Dave and Rev. Ivan Stang.

RADIO SAFE VERSION - PROOF that the Sacred Scribe, the OverMan, and the The SubGenius Foundation chief officers in general are still alive and well, almost like “Bob” himself! On Jan. 18 “2022,” on his way to do some consulting at an arms conference, Dr. Philo Drummond himself choppered in to the helipad at Stang Ranch to do some Show recording with Rev. Stang and Princess Wei ‘R’ Doe in Tarzan’s Radio Station at Fossil House. As planned, the supernatural Blessings of Dobbs, a few goat rides, and some great Mexican food at Los Primos drove the old Doktors into Spouting mode, resulting in this hour of pure revealed wisdom and divine trivia.

This episode is not a rerun. We broke out of the thousand-episode-old-rerun RUT, and editor Stang's broken and swollen body parts are healing, even possibly mutating slightly. This is a NEW show, but by the mysterious entity in deepest Cleveland who goes by the name SHERIDAN. It is INTENSE, and there is no explanation of its various ingredients, which are all over the sonic map. We hope to fire up Tarzan’s Radio Station next week and start recording new shows again with call-in guests like Lonesome Cowboy Dave, who like Stang is not quite dead yet. 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!

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.

Great Preachin' (rerun of #857) -- TIME TRAVEL IS POSSIBLE! For instance, Rev. Stang practices extreme Time Control to buy himself extra Life Time by exposing new audiences to these classic recordings, rather than breaking his back further by sweating over a hot hot-splicer (or digital editing system, as the case may be). This way, the new generation of adults -- that is, people the age of Stang and Co.'s great-great-grandchildren -- are privileged to hear the kind of wisdom of the ancients that is normally prohibited now. Don't believe us? JUST WAIT ANOTHER 20 YEARS and you'll see: everything in so-called "current events" and "the news" repeats itself! -- just a little worse each time.

Back in them days of 2002 A.D., when our spines were stout and strong and straight, there were so many audio contributions coming in from so many artists, and so many subjects covered on the various other SubGenius-related shows (especially WCSB's ESO Swamp Radio) that we were making 'theme' shows. The most common subjects were "Bob," the Conspiracy, whatever war was going on at the time, aliens, apocalypses, and, of course, sex. That's what this is; but "love" sounded more atypical for Hour of Slack. Music includes Consortium of Genius, ESO,n The Swingin' Love Corpses, Elvis Presley, The El Queso All-Stars, the Broadway cast of "Guys n' Dolls," StAllio, Heart Ignition, The Bran Flakes, Mark Mothersbaugh, and The Rainmakers. LeMur collages collide with the listener's inner brain. It's radio-safe.

The pattern (and Stang's spinal therapy) continues with another THOUSAND-SHOW-OLD SHOW! YET AGAIN, AGAIN! #1854 is really #854, rerun from 2002. In those days, when we had a lot of new material, we broke it up into "themes" just as an arbitrary way of organizing the mass of sound files. The theme in this case developed when Dr. Philo Drummond unearthed some old tapes of The Pink Boyz, the rock band headed by the late Dr. X, a brief and early co-sub-founder of the Church. Dr. X, Stang's best pal in high school, died young of drugs -- mostly alcohol. Luckily the depressing nature of the alcoholism theme is offset by the inanity of the counterbalancing psychedelics theme. There's some excellent ESO Swamp Radio ranting, LeMurian collage, and music by Consortium of Genius, Dr. Onan's Wotan Band, The Pink Boyz, The Rainmakers, Reagan's Polyp, Kim Fowley, and Rocko Schwab.

YET AGAIN! This episode #1853 is really #853, which, being from 2002, is ONE THOUSAND SHOWS OLD! And yet the news it carries could have been ripped from tomorrow's headlines. It's all RADIO SAFE also. This was the first of many shows which HEAVILY utilized the audio cut-ups of Fernandinande LeMur. We'd been using 'em all along, but he'd been on such a tear that we organized the next 3 shows around his contributions. (854 would be "Drugs and Drunks" and 855 would be "Love").

RERUN AGAIN! This episode #1851 is really #851. At the end of last week's rerun it promised this DEVO SubGenius special, and by golly, that makes sense, because, WHY NOT? Maybe next week's #1852 will be a rerun of #852 and we'll just stick with that pattern until Rev. Stang gets a little faster at his renewed physical therapy exercises. (He shouldn't have stopped doing those stretches for his bad back.)
This one's from August 2002. DEVO fans will be thrilled at the cover versions of beloved classics, especially the five by Occupant (Rev. Dr. Uncle Onan Canobite and "MITCH").

RADIO SAFE. Some of our Media Barrage albums from the early 1980s are on CD or streaming, but Media Barrage #4, "The End of the World," stayed on tape since 1981. When this album was edited on reel to reel tape, largely by Stang, there were few known SubGeniuses, and Stang and Drummond were new to radio. Mixed with the old material are three original songs by Bo Burnham, David Morrison and a collaboration by Rev. Negative and the late great Rev. Just John. So, have a swim in the toxic radioactive swamp that is our future as prophesied in SubGenius Media Barrage Tape #4.

When the Church outreach was first being developed under "Bob," there were originally three mortals involved: Ivan Stang, Dr. Philo Drummond, and the late "Dr. X," aka Deacon Lamont Duvoe, aka Monte Dhooge, lead singer and songwriter of his band The Pink Boyz. We recently had cause to unearth Monte's early SubGenius preaching and Pink Boyz recordings, and realized it was high time for a Dr. X tribute. His preaching was used a lot on our old Media Barrage 4 album (which was never released on CD, just on cassette, decades ago) and parts of that are woven in and around the Pink Boyz songs. There are many choice slips of INSANE Dallas Christian radio preachers too. Almost all of this dates from 1978 to 1980.

Like last week, three different shows are interspersed: The Too Late Show from the wee hours of July 5, a live Hour of Slack with Stang, Dr. Hal and Papa Joe Mama from July 4 (also recorded at Land of Id Resort in Florida), and a phone-in from Lonesome Cowboy Dave recorded at Tarzan's on Stang Ranch. The Too Late Show was hosted by Rev. Fidd Chewley and features an interview with Rev. Purge, an actual adult film star, who answer's Fidd's lascivious questions about the behind-the-scenes details of her work. Music is by Rubix Pube, The Rudy Schwartz Project, and the very last song is by Ego Plum (although we didn't learn that until after the show was finished.) LeMur did the titles, news and weird short cut-ins.

RADIO SAFE - The day before X-Day, or so we thought, Dr. Hal, Stang, Peas, and (later) Papa Joe Mama did one final live "Hour of Slack" from the stage at Land of Id resort in Land o' Lakes, Florida. It's quite the nerd-out! To prevent an outbreak of nerdophrenia in listeners, the elevated man-blabber is punctuated by rockin' doktor songs by Rubix Pube -- not the live recordings from X-Day, but their studio albums Hypnostank and BobComp 1 (available on bandcamp.com). The wonderful girl-voice of Rev. Lochness Cleaver serves as a needed respite from the yabbering grandpas.

But, what better way to spend your time just before the atmosphere either freezes entirely, or boils away? (... Depending on your location.) Three classic songs by Dave and ESO are included, plus live versions of two of them at the end! Good luck living through the Weather Apocalypse that long.

(ALL RADIO SAFE) Friends, this episode, recorded live at 24X-Day at Land of Id in Land o' Lakes Florida, with special guests Dr. Hal and Papa Joe Mama, may be a bit of a challenge for the listener because the recording quality was affected by seriously loud torrential rains, and, though we were under a roof, we were outside in it. This recording took some SERIOUS filtering with the Levelator to be comprehensible, and Dr. Hal especially was horribly overmodulated, but, I think it's worth it. The Woker Than Thou will face The Judgment. Unfortunately, the Judgmental will also face the Judgment.

It's a different campground, in a completely different part of the country, with a slightly different audience, but it's still another early July X-Day Drill live show with Dr. Hal and Rev. Stang. There are about 20 years' worth of those in the can. Luckily, this one is spiced up by Father Joe Mama's grippingly unforgettable first sermon at 24X-Day, a reveal of Wizard Bong the mysterious document, a little more SWONK comics and Dobbstown Mirror readings, and the romantic Rudy Schwartz Project song, "Farley Granger's Oxygen Tent."

The 24X-Day board recordings weren't lost after all! However, we're just beginning to sort through them. Meanwhile, here are reports on the Drill both real and fake, pieced together from fragments, lies, comic books, and The Dobbstown Mirror, with Stang doing a lot of reading. (One of the comic books being read is SWONK.) We also unearthed some nice Norel Pref collages to punctuate the various readings, bleedings and seedings.

The 24X-Day board recordings weren't lost after all! However, we're just beginning to sort through them. Meanwhile, here are reports on the Drill both real and fake, pieced together from fragments, lies, comic books, and The Dobbstown Mirror, with Stang doing a lot of reading. (One of the comic books being read is SWONK.) We also unearthed some nice Norel Pref collages to punctuate the various readings, bleedings and seedings. Music includes The Swinging Love Corpses, The Rudy Schwartz Project, Cyberchump, and monster movie soundtracks.

RADIO SAFE VERSION. The 26th X-Day Drill, previously called 24 X-Day, was a great reminder that maybe we'd better either start working on our own escape ships, or clean up the one we're already on. We're still rounding up recordings -- some may have been lost to Tropical Storm Elsa! -- but we have some early excerpts including a fantastic, sick Papa Joe Mama sermon and some killer music by Rubix Pube. There's also some terrible music by Fidd Chewley and Rev. Peas, and a wonderful 12-minute media barrage by R.A.T.H.O.L.E. The Rudy Schwartz Project and some truly puzzling Evidence round it out. Stang gives thanks in an impromptu rant inspired by the real-life invasion of the resort by walking catfish.

Rerun of #1258. X-Day XIII was coming up -- Lucky 13. Since X-Day Drill #12 in 2009, your host and prayer partner had been collecting and setting aside all the parts of OTHER folks' shows when X-Day was being discussed. Includes: Stang on the British podcast RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE SITTING NOW and Jack Jett's show on Rational Radio in Dallas; Rev. Susie the Floozie's "Bob's" Slacktime Fun House with Puzzling Evidence as a guest; The Puzzling Evidence Show with Dr. Hal, Phineas Narco and Dr. Philo Drummond; there's also a poem by Nenslo, read by Dr. Hal at 12X-Day. The real killer however is Papa Joe Mama's sermon from the 2002 (or 2003?) devival in Hamburg, Germany, entitled, "Five Minutes To Midnight"! Also featured are frequent caller Bernard, The Crazy Numbers Guy, and Paula Dupree, the Ape Woman. Actually it is her mad doctor, John Carradine, doing the talking. Paula herself did not speak until the second Ape Woman movie.

RADIO SAFE! And it's a rerun, a real oldie. Hour of Slack #535, 1996. It's WHAT WILL HAPPEN ON X-DAY, in excruciating detail. It features what may well be the most forceful (and informative!) rants ever delivered by both Rev. Ivan Stang and Dr. K'taden Legume, sermons recorded in moments when those worthies were totally caught up in the thrall of "Bob" -- divine messengers, as it were, helpless to do anything but preach the hardest truths of SubGenius Orthodox Dobbsian doctrine. Punctuating these heart-staking sermons are some of the most intensive so-called "Media Barrage tapes" from the 1980s, especially segments from St. Byron Werner's historic cassette collage masterpieces "Space Age Bachelor Pad" (the actual origin of that hipster genre catch-phrase) and "Dougs, Drugs and Doctors." Voices heard from the old SubGenius Media Barrage tapes include Dr. Philo Drummond, Hellswami Satellite Weavers (the great SubGenius "ur-illustrator" narrating into a tape deck on a drive through Meteor Crater, Arizona), Former Pastor Buck Naked, Dobbs' bodyguard Dr. G. Gordon Gordon, Pope Michael Flores and even Janor, back in the olden days. We should have been running this episode annually, and would do so henceforth, were not X-Day imminently nigh.

RADIO SAFE! But perhaps as evil as it is good. The mysterious Cleveland artist that calls itself SHERIDAN has provided yet more Show fodder, and it comes at a good time as we are preparing to leave the planet, for good this time. This is a true media barrage, a little of everything that you mostly have never heard before, or heard so long ago -- like at the age of six or seven -- that you still remember it vaguely. Sheridan also does his disturbed radio DJ bit some. "Station WWYN" he calls it. So, strap your headphones or hearing aids on tight!

New Rudy Schwartz Project songs including "Intelligent Design" and "Adjacent to the Latex Gerbil" from the album of the same evocative name! The music is all new and the yakkery is all old Puzzling Evidence from KPFA Berekeley with Philo, Hal and Puzzling, and Don Joyce, and from WCSB Cleveland, with Lonecow Dave, Chas Smith, Dr. Hal and Dr. Sinister. There are some excellent collages by LeMur and Lymph Node Institute. The Swinging Love Corpses play their best song. Rev. J. Cobblestone offers a brand new Dobbs hymn, and Rev.

Squalis Friday, lots of Puzzling Evidence and Radio Synaesthesia clips from a few thousand years ago (both with Dr. Hal). "The Larger World," a new Bob Walkenhorst song; Stang reads Goldstein's book from 1984; and Wei and Stang sing a salute to Dr. G. Gordon Gordon that they mutilated from a Warren Zevon classic.

During the many SubGenius radio shows on various stations in 2008, we reminisced about old times and the most horrifying moments of the real-life SubGenius adventure. We saved those bits for this show, which ties in with Stang's SubGenius History / Cult Management online course that was then at Maybe Logic Academy (maybelogic.net). Ironically, brand new mindfuckery ends the show. Show is RADIO SAFE.

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.

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.

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.

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.
