Hour of Slack"
Eternal Salvation, or triple your money back!
I came not to bring peace, but an obnoxious radio show."

Church of the SubGenius Radio Ministry
host: Rev. Ivan Stang
Hour of Slack is the compendium of the best and newest from
all SubGenius™ radio & stage shows, bands, ranters,
media barrage collage artists, plus the weirdest of the
indie audio underground. Over 1,206 episodes of this jam-packed,
samurai-edited juggernaut of raw, untamed SLACK are available.
Hour of Slack is produced weekly by REV. IVAN STANG (PO

Hour of Slack #1210 - Live 6-21-09 Pre-X-Day
anticipation and severe brain damage mark this episode recorded
live at the WCSB studio, as Stang, Lonesome Cowboy Dav,
Princess Wei and numerous collagiasts and singers prepare
for the upcoming end of Pink Human civilization on July
5. Includes a marvelous collage by Rev. Susie the Floozie
about "Bob" Dobbs, X-Day and the Church of the
SubGenius. Odd note: this particular show was videotaped
by a director who was in town getting footage for an authorized
documentary about DEVO. At least, the part that happened
in the studio was videotaped.
Hour of Slack #1209 - All-Star New X-Day Hymns and B.O.
Some NEW X-Day hymns (including one sung, yes, SUNG by Rev.
Susie the Floozie!) are intercut with about 50 of our favorite
bits and pieces related to the end of all normal human reality,
scheduled for this July 5. We're getting ready to head for
Brushwood in New York for the big blast-off party, so from
here on out, except for a live show next week, The Hour
of Slack will probably henceforth always be in reruns, forever.
Unless we're stood up again by the Xists and "Bob."
This is only the 12th time we will have gathered out there
at 7 a.m., faithfully awaiting Their Arisal.
Hour of Slack #1208 - Stang Reads from Sex Books
Ivan Stang went to the station alone this night, alone but
for a few collages, and read from his favorite dirty books
until Lonesome Cowboy Dave called in. We forget what happened
after that. Something to do with J.R. "Bob" Dobbs,
the Church of the SubGenius, and the impending end of the
world on July 5 at 7 a.m. Among other things.
Human Condition, Puzzling Evidence and Cool Band Names
May 22, 2009 Puzzling Evidence Show from KPFA Berkeley with
host Puzzling Evidence, Dr. Hal, Dr. Philo Drummond and
caller Phineas Narco forms the skeleton for this episode.
The meat draped over these bones includes collages by our
old pals LeMur and Norel Pref, as well as The Kleptones
and Cuttlefish, but the "organs" are some new
songs (and one old) by Little Fyodor, Ari Sponge, Max Slack,
and Nenslo. Yes, NENSLO! Dozens of new band names are invented,
including "The Froptones."
"Bob," for here we have a truly all-purpose, no-theme/all-themes
salad of SubGenius sources. We've been in reruns or live shows
for so long that quite a nice stack of short clips by beloved
Church of the SubGenius Audio Soldiers has piled up. This
episode scavenges from Radio Synesthesia (Cleveland) and Puzzling
Evidence (Berkeley), with collages from our favorite insane
clip editors keeping the two SubGenius shows far enough apart
that they won't squabble and get into fights. One solitary
oldie, a gospel song by Rev. Onan Canobite, is the sole anchor
internet radio without a computer!
