The Church of the SubGenius Radio Ministry


"I came not to bring peace, but an obnoxious radio show."
-- J.R. "Bob" Dobbs, 1956-ecclesians 6:14.

The 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 1,800 episodes of this jam-packed, samurai-edited juggernaut of raw, untamed SLACK are available.

The Hour of Slack has been produced weekly since 1985 by REV. IVAN STANG (PO Box 807, Glen Rose, Texas, 76043, USA) -- send tapes or CDs there for possible exploitation. Alternately, you can email with your submissions as links or as MP3s (if they're under 5 mb or so, per day).

    A note about .ogg files:

    To play the Ogg files, you'll need an Ogg ready player, examples of these are listed below. They're organized by operating system, so if you find something that works for your OS and isn't on this list, feel free to email Stang about it, and we'll add it to the list.


    • WHAMB for OS X; works great; free.
    • VLC MEDIA PLAYER for OS X; free; plays damn near anything.
    • MacAmp for OS X & OS 9.
    • Quicktime and iTunes play OGGs with the OGG plug-in. NOTE: the new Quicktime 7 and iTunes don't handle Ogg Vorbis files anymore, until you update the Ogg Vorbis component -- a quick and painless procedure from --This gives you the free OggDrop program, which converts audio to Ogg, and a Quicktime Components installer, which adds components allowing the new Quicktime and iTunes to play Oggs.

    Linux & Unix:


    • WinAmp 5, the full free version (not the "lite" version).
    • OggDropXPd drag and drop, converts *.wav's into *.ogg files and vice versa. An easy way to burn Ogg's to an audio CD (if your disk burning software doesn't already recognize the Ogg format).
    • foobar2000

    Palm OS:

    • AeroPlayer. The free trial version plays Ogg files. Only the purchased version plays MP3 files.
