Episodes

Hour of Slack #1662 - Rev. Susie the Floozie's Greatest "Bob" Show

2/21/2018
More
This is one of the best SubGenius radio show episodes ever made and it's not an Hour of Slack! It's Episode #51 of Rev. Susie the Floozie's "Bob's" Slack Time Funhouse, originally broadcast on WREK-Atalanta in 1994. Susie is the greatest audio collage editor of all time, and this is one of her best mixes. It's got EVERYTHING! In it's ORIGINAL FORM, yet! (You'll see what we mean, take our word for it!) There must be hundreds of separate tracks and cuts, expertly woven together by Susie, and...

Hour of Slack #1661 - What's Been Real

2/12/2018
More
New media barrages from Cool Hand Chris! A new "Bob" quote! A killer rant by Prof. Pressure (albeit delivered by Rev. Stang)! The Woody Woodpecker theme! A Steppenwolf cover! The horror of "Bob" Dobbs and the terrible secret of the "free Membership Pack." The Fear of the Backside, and what it really means when a person decides that everyone else is a Backside. Lonesome Cowboy Dave's parenting advice! IT'S ALL HERE! Order Lonesome Cowboy Dave's novel NEIGHBOR WORLD and/or THE BOOK OF THE...

Hour of Slack #1660 - Hour of Slack Classics

2/7/2018
More
This is like the rerunniest show we ever done run! It was assembled around 2002 like a Frankenstein's monster from our favorite clips, extracted with great care out of the vast hoard of universally favorite SubGenius albums and tapes made since 1980. This one truly preserves, like flies in amber, the old-timers of the Church at their ostensible best in the first two decades of our mighty radio outreach -- before the brain damages and rheumatism set in. It's so dense that we shall just post...

Hour of Slack #1659 - Rampant Rectalism

1/31/2018
More
Typical recent "live" show with atypical music by The Rudy Schwartz Project, The Psycho Skeletons, Lothar and the Hand People, and The Rainmakers; includes a doomful old rant about the Masonic Conspiracies by Stang. Then it's yakdada all the way down. Soviet chimps in the suburbs; goodbad badfilm movies; Stang's strap-on toads; sensitive snowtard bloggers; farting in the sweat lodge; Young KimCarl Jung and Punk Freud; Cicus Apocalypse versus the baby weiners; build the Wall between Heaven...

Hour of Slack #1658 - Hour of Time for The Show #102

1/22/2018
More
There are SubGenius radio shows besides The Hour of Slack. The Puzzling Evidence Show and "Bob's" Slack Time Funhouse have been on air for as long or longer, and there have been other spinoffs that went extinct. But now there is a new, powerful podcast, one that erupted like a pustule out of the Thorazine Urine Podcrust comedy nontroup, called Time For The Show! The latest incarnations have been better recorded and had less cussing than earlier ones, and #102 (Jan. 8, "2018")had Stang as a...

Hour of Slack #1657 - Shithole Town and Country

1/15/2018
More
Down in the Medicine Shithole! Thanks to the President, we are now free to play, on public airwaves available to children, songs like "Shithole Town" by The Rainmakers! (Actually, we censored the broadcast version; this version is 18 minutes longer than an hour, too!) Most of the show is a good ol' live chat with Lonesome Cowboy Dave, recorded at Tarzan's at Stang Ranch, but (as always) on Sunday night just like a real show. Remastered versions of four songs by The Rudy Schwartz Poject and...

Hour of Slack #1656 - Rerun of #411 - Rev. Gobi Special

1/10/2018
More
This Hour of Slack is by necessity and choice a rerun of #411 from Sept. 1993, which was requested by a long-time listener, and when we checked it out we could hear why. It's REALLY unusual and features some excellent rants by the then-high-schooler named Reverend Gobi, who had a SubGenius show at her high school radio station. They're a real blast of fresh air from the ancient past. Order Lonesome Cowboy Dave's novel NEIGHBOR WORLD and/or THE BOOK OF THE SUBGENUS (signed):...

Hour of Slack #1655 - New Year's Eve Synaesthesia and Media Barrage

1/1/2018
More
Simple! The first half is the last last half hour of the last Radio Synaesthesia show of 2017 on WCSB, with Stang and Doe joining by phone with a big gang of WCSB Subs at the station to ring in whatever new year this actually is: host Dr. Sinister and numerous other comedians, DJs, ex-DJs, and ex-cons. The only non-Stang SubGenius in the Glen Rose area, Dr. Sinsomniac, does a great call-in too. The second half is part of a major new (well, maybe old, but mostly new to us) "media barrage"...

Hour of Slack #1654 - OOPS! We Forgot the Annual SubGenius Xistlessnessmess Mix Rerun

12/29/2017
More
The grandsons were here and Rev. Stang had so much fun counting his blessings that he totally lost count of his jobs. 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, etc.), which was itself a condensation of some ancient year's 3-show "Best of Xmas Sickness"...

Hour of Slack #1653 - Corruptigating Worms

12/20/2017
More
This is Hour of Slack number 450, rerun from July of t"1994" when the show was only nine years old and still being produced in Dallas. We were between radio stations then, so we relied more on clips from other SubGeniusly radio shows like Puzzling Evidence in San Francisco and ESO Swamp Radio Brain Rot Theater in Cleveland on WCSB, and also on cassette tapes that were mailed in. It was the days before the Internet, and people spent more time on things like making tapes and mailing them...

Hour of Slack #1652 - GASLIGHT THE WHOLE PLANET!

12/12/2017
More
A pretty crazy episode. Clearly confusing directions! Stang reads from our next publishing event, the novel EYELASH by Nikolai Kingsley. The Rainmakers, classics x 3. The history of Xists inventing Yetis, Yetis inventing humans, Why hide the edge of the Flat Earth? Where SubGeniuses come from. The Conspiracy destroyed Earth, switched with Mars - now we'll finish the job from a distance, seen in VR. "I don't care if I'm in the Matrix." Dave on THEY LIVE. Sell the Sonic BM buzz to Devo!...

Hour of Slack #1651 - HoarDerPerSavs

12/4/2017
More
The incredible rabble-rousing live devival rant "WHAT IF...?" by Papa Joe Mama highlights this episode and possibly this century. Believer-bashing rock songs by The Rainmakers and The Rudy Schwartz Project do too. We hear the opening installment of the third episode of Time for the Show, a scrum-influenced prodcast from, in this case, Faux/Chewley/Peas. The 1984 version of Mark Mothersbaugh weighs in on Dobbs Sex and SubGenius philosophy. Then there's the rest of the show, recorded at...

Hour of Slack #1650 - THERE'S A TRUMP UNDER MY BED!

11/27/2017
More
First live show from Stang Ranch! Well, they're prerecorded, but we do then at 9 pm Sundays just like at the station in Cleveland, and we strive to PRETEND it's live so that we don't have to do much editing. The discussions veers all over SubGenius Creation but the theme to which we keep returning is the timely one of sexual harassment by old rich fat men. A couple of Church secrets are even revealed! Two songs by The Rainmakers from the 1996 album SKIN are remarkably pertinent this...

Hour of Slack #1649 - Prairie Squid

11/22/2017
More
Half of show is from Hour of Slack #40 from 1986 with G. Gordon Gordon, Ivan Stang, and background music by DK Jones, Mark Mothersbaugh, and Onan Canobite. Interspersed with that hardy and informative classic fossil are Prairie Squid related songs by Champion Jack Codini, songs and rants from Stang/Wei/ESO Radio and devival collaborations, a litle KPFA squiditidy, plus everything on Napster with the word "squid" in the title.

Hour of Slack #1648 - Winterstar 2001

11/19/2017
More
We managed to stay on Show schedule through our move from Ohio to Texas, but the strenuous unpacking process was what finally got the best of us and put us behind by a week. We're catching up with reruns, this one being a great example of the Hours of Slack from the early 2000s that relied on plenty of ESO Swamp Radio (WCSB Cleveland by host Chas Smith, with Ivan Stang and Lonesome Cowboy Dave) and The Puzzling Evidence Show on KPFA Berkeley by host Puzzling Evidence and cohosts Dr. Hal...

Hour of Slack 1647 - Endless Slack - Syn Without Dr. Sinister

11/14/2017
More
This one's a Radio Synaesthesia show without Dr. Sinister, with Stang at the controls, Princess Wei and Dr. Hal (with yet another new song!) in the studio, and the Lonesome Cowboy on the phone, recorded July 9 "2017." Many Church secrets are revealed including the history of SubGenius transgender weddings. Pretty much everything important is discussed, followed by discussions of everything else. Hopefully we will have Tarzan's Radio Station fully cranked up next week. Order Lonesome...

We start with a rant and the song "Reckoning Day" by THE RAINMAKERS recorded June 2nd 2017 at Knuckleheads Garage. We made it to Stang Ranch Texas, intact with ALL OUR STUFF, the entire Church of the SubGenius main media archive and Slack Altar elements, after a truly strenuous and taxing house move. We're still unpacking, but basically the huge move is over and we can emit this new-like Hour of Slack #1645, maybe a little late. It was recorded September 17, "2017," on Dr. Sinister's show...

Last live show at WCSB until next summer; we're MOVING! This episode attacks the ins and outs of packing and prepping massive SubGenius media archives for transportation across 1000 miles of Pink territory in a disguised "moving van." We also discuss the documentary movie in progress, SLACKING TOWARDS BETHLEHEM, and urge all listeners to check out the Kickstarter page and trailer. Also: The Rainmakers cover Devo, The Swinging Love Corpses, and more of them kind pils. SLACKING TOWARDS...

Hour of Slack #1643 - Goodbye, Dammett

10/11/2017

It's all about dogs. There's some great Swinging Love Corpses, The Rainmakers, and The Psycho Skeletons in this, and a sermon by Rev. deFalk, but mostly it's a tribute to our late, great SubGenius hound dog, Dammett, who boarded the Saucers at age 12 on Sept. 29, or St. Dammett / Bite the Mailman Day. (Thanks to Rev. Guimo for that idea.) We also ALMOST reveal MASSIVE Church secrets, and discuss the SubGenius Yard Sale which had ended just before this show started, but the best parts are...
