Rerun of the long-lost #38, with a Men In Black theme (NOT the movie franchise!)... but at the beginning we announce: THE MOVIE IS OUT! Sandy K. Boone's J.R. "Bob" Dobbs and The Church of the SubGenius" is on Amazon, YouTube, Apple TV, Vudu and others ($4 pay-per-view). As for this old show... there's some crazy-ass ranting and collages, and media-…
 
Stang was laid up from a minor back injury for a whole week, so this is another rerun -- but it is one of the WEIRDEST episodes ever. In 1986 Stang was having fun doing crazy sound effects mixes on a 4-track reel-to-reel deck, partly inspired by Negativland's groundbreaking third album, "A Big 10-8 Place." Half this show is that very album. The oth…
 
"Having listened back to this episode, closely, for the first time in decades, I must say that we must in fact have been TOTALLY AND UTTERLY TRIPPING BALLS THE WHOLE TIME." -- Rev. Ivan Stang, October 2020 Be that as it may, this early episode exploited Dr. G. Gordon Gordon and a great deal of the SubGenius album called Media Barrage 10, an editing…
 
Stang Sermon at Starwood 2020 - Starwood Festival is usually like a mini-Woodstock. But in 2020, like so many great weirdo festivals, everything had to happen in the Matrix, with all attendees and presenters looking at each other in little boxes on little screens. But, at least we could hang out! Starwood is the one annual venue where Stang is paid…

Rerun of Hour of Slack #5 (1985) -- At age 67, Rev. Stang is lately refusing to work as hard on this show as he did thirty five years ago. You listeners should just be danged glad that we still have the master tapes -- well, the dubbing masters, which are on cassette -- and can provide high quality reruns that are probably much better than the same…

(REVISED Sept.21) FIRED! The West is fired. The East is drowned. TIME FOR A PARTY IN THE MIDWEST! -- before the rattlesnake-nadoes, anti-masker water riots and burning cactuspus storms beset EVEN US, the Savage Mind of the Country's Interior (as per PuzEv). Sheridan retells the story of Adam and Eve. Onan publishes a SubGenius newspaper which Stang…

This is not exactly a rerun, but it was recorded on Halloween night of 1985. The great SubGenius ranter and assassin G. Gordon Gordon was in town from Bolivia, and we'd been invited to Karen Denard's popular nightly talk show on the Dallas NPR station, KERA. Pastor Buck Naked was also there. This would have been Hour of Slack #4, but, it was a comp…
 
RADIO SAFE VERSION - Much more music than usual in this episode! You may have heard of some of the bands... Oingo Boingo is the only "logo band," though. We have Cult of Zir, Rubix Pube, After Hours, SubG Kids, Thunk!, and TTN (Dr. Argus Faux & friends), plus some skeletons who are psychotic. Spoken and/or ranted word comes from Sheridan (new), ESO…

A rerun of, get ready, Hour of Slack Number Three from October 1985. We had done only two prior shows in the crude KNON Dallas studio, and Stang was obviously still unfamiliar with the equipment. The amazing things about this episode are the special guests: three of the key early SubGenius Doktors were all somehow in Dallas that week. We had just d…
 
RADIO-SAFE VERSION of Better Living Through Confirmation Bias! CULT OF ZIR rears its ugly head, as does the thing they call Sheridan. And lots of other new stuff -- some by new old people, some by old new people. ALL-SUBGENIUS! A new Onan rant stabs through some membranes of ESO Swamp Radio with Chas and Dave, but only makes them stronger. LeMur tr…

Lonesome Cowboy Dave joined us for a whole hour -- from his hospital bed! And we thought he sounded more lively and snappy than before he got sick! LeMur did the titles but after that it's talk, talk, talk! Subject matters: The devil in your swimming pool. Dave's "home" in this sick, sick world. Buddy gets baked. Buddy's O.D. Can't Leave the Room. …

New Worst-Of 2020 X-Day rants and Old Best-Of Dave spoutings slam against each other, with just barely enough 1980s Oingo Boingo songs to grease the friction and prevent the prophesied FUTURE-COVID burn-out infection avalanche! IT'S OUR ONLY HOPE! We had to do it! No choice! Seriously! It was THAT BAD! We were forced to resort to the only staunchin…
 
This is a rerun of #1232 from 2009, recorded mostly at a live devival in Portland, and today the preaching by Portland natives Uncle Dr. Onan Canobite and Rev. Crawford Smith seems strangely timely and even prescient! The blurb then: "We have some GREAT new music (The Attery Squash, SODDI, Mutant Mountain Boys, Kenneth Jonsson, The Duke of Uke, and…

We continue with the Virtual X-Day on Zoom from July 1, but it's heavily interspersed with media barrage clips from our early albums and some '90s devivals, and some new music and musical collage from SubG Kids, The Psycho Skeletons, and new contributor Sheridan... and an old song from Danny Elfman's solo album. And a salute to the late Ennio Morri…

We're going to 23X-Day, right in our own homes. The centerpiece is a face-peeling new X-Day rant by the great preacher Father Joe Mama. Much of this episode also samples audio from the first hour of the first day of the first X-Day held entirely online by teleconferencing. Most of X-Day week this roomful of Zoombies was a free-for-all, but we start…

Friends, the Virtual Online X-Day Drill was lots of fun. The audio recordings are gonna take some editing, though. Luckily, Rev. Susie the Floozie saved our bootaw by doing a SUPERB brand new X-Day and Plague episode of "Bob's Slacktime Funhouse on WREK Atlanta! Note: Both versions are radio-safe, but the Internet version is 3 minutes longer. SECRE…

This is the second part of that old recording that's not a rerun, because we never ran it uncut and unmarred. This is as close to the master recording off WCSB Cleveland's cassette deck that we'll get. It was recorded July, 1994, right around X-Day 6. Participants on this ESO Swamp Radio episode were host the late Prof. Chas Smith, Lonesome Cowboy …

This is not exactly a rerun, but rather a long lost classic, recently unearthed. We found the master recording of an ESO Swamp Radio and Brain Rot Theater show that Stang sat in on while visiting WCSB in Cleveland in July of 19 and 94. We were all young and in our prime, with the FIRE in the BELLY, and it really shows. Bits have been used before on…

RADIO-SAFE VERSION! Not the same old! Stang couldn't hide from it forever, and directly addresses the BLM situation by describing the setting, set-up and denouement of a (luckily) peaceful demonstration in the small rural town of Glen Rose, Texas. The counter-demonstration was extremely hostile, but took place entirely on obscure local Facebook pag…

This remaster of #44 comes from the prehistoric days of 1986, when audio was edited on, at best, 1/4" reel-to-reel tape using a splicer and lots of little reels, and copious paper notes, or else, at worst, two cassette tape decks and a "record-pause" button. Seems like it was somehow... better... oh, well. Along with excellent remastered copies of …

RADIO-SAFE VERSION! (Actually the Internet version is clean too, but longer than one hour.) From the year 2000 comes this remastered Hour of Slack 724 rerun, packed with Slack from ESO Swamp Radio, the XX-Day 1999 devival, Media Barrage 11 on the subject of UFOs, Todd Rundgren "rap" songs, Hemorrhoy Rogers and His 'Roid Boys, Ryanetics, and am amaz…

RADIO-SAFE VERSION - Rerun of Hour of Slack #664 from early 1999, featuring the late Prof. Chas Smith's amazing edit of best SubGenius moments from his ESO Swamp Radio show with Stang and Lonesome Cowboy Dave, and several "Bob" hymns by Einstein's Secret Orhcestra (his "ESO Volume 10" special tape). We also hear ESO, Stang, and Lonecow Dave live at…

RADIO-SAFE VERSION! This is an hour of nothing but Rev. Ivan Stang alternately hollering and muttering to the live audience at the 39th Starwood Festival in July 2019. (Stang has ranted at the last 29 Starwoods, almost always on Saturday afternoon at the main stage.) We beg your forgiveness but we have to crank these things out or else resort to re…

RADIO-SAFE VERSION! Rev. Ivan Stang talks relatively straight for a change, and reads from The Bobliographon at some length. Works by three NEW Hour of Slack contributors make up the rest. There's a strange song by David Morrison (mixed by The Rudy Schwartz Project), two strange musical sampling collages by "Sheridan" of Cleveland, and two collage …

22X-Day "2019," July 6 at Wisteria with Dr. Hal, Rev. Ivan Stang, Princess Wei 'R.' D'oh!, and Rev. Angry Larry. RADIO SAFE. Inexplicable horror intro- Let's walk down this lane... going straight to another show for you. The faithful have been judged. Good! Saturday schedule. Recuperating; Bobtism at 2 pm in pond. Old Sequaw. The Wall of Ticks. Cos…
 
RADIO-SAFE, "CLEAN VERSION of Stang's Oingo Boingo Fanboy Tribute Show. We start with two new Trump-bashing songs -- SORRY, SNOWFLAKES -- CRY!! -- by Roy Zimmerman and Bob Walkenhorst, and then it goes into an all-Oingo Boingo first-two-albums tribute show with Stang explaining before each song why he identifies with it so much. The band Oingo Boin…

PG-RATED RADIO-OKAY VERSION. Recorded in Caffeina's at Wisteria on 22X-Day (July 5, "2019"). Dr. Hal, Rev. Angry Larry, and a mysterious newcomer, Rev. "Chip," fill the voids left after Stang and Drummond vacate their Tarzan's Radio Station folding chairs and mics. Some jamming by The Slot Rods and others, and LeMur collages, are used as seasoning.…

Rev. Susie the Floozie did it! It's this week's "Bob's" Slack Time Funhouse, and we get to premiere it! The opening segments are brand new; the rest is a classic Susie old-school super-collage media barrage on the subjects of Easter and deadly diseases, slightly seasoned up with modern clips. There is some possibly fanciful ranting about Rev. Ivan …
