The 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.
A good old-fashioned Hour of Slack — albeit all-new. This one features a little bit of everything and everybody, with the accent on "Bob" Dobbs on the one hand, and The Conspiracy of the Normals on the other. Collages by all the masters, music from The Attery Squash, The 180 Gs, Stang/LeMur, Wilhelm Stahlhelm, Gadgetto, and others, and rants from various devivals and radio shows by old and young stalwarts, accent on the warts. And the discerning few will crap profusely when they hear the opening promo.
Partly due to the recordings running in the background, this live show with Lonesome Cowboy Dave is one of the most INSANE episodes ever. While listening, we recommend headphones, a bike helmet and a bullet-proof vest.
Every year, the great Cleveland station WCSB has a pledge drive or "Radiothon," and we at Hour of Slack love this one single time each year, when we are able to legally grub for money just like regular Christian evangelists. You see, the stations that carry Hour of Slack are all public-supported and thus we can’t exactly advertise. Even during pledge drives, we can only grub money for the station. And boy, do we! Because this episode may be aired by other stations, and because the WCSB pledge drive is already over, we have reversed or cut the Cleveland phone number for pledges from these copies. But, if you want to pledge, the phone number is: 216-687-6900. Or, you can always mail or Paypal your pledge to firstname.lastname@example.org, aka SubGenius, PO Box 181417, Cleveland Hts OH 44118. Or (and this is probably easiest) just buy something from subgenius.com. Praise "Bob."
