The Church of the SubGenius Radio Ministry
ENCIRCLING THE GLOBE in Ogg Vorbis and MP3!
"I came not to bring peace, but an obnoxious radio show."
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 1,1230 episodes of this jam-packed, samurai-edited juggernaut of raw, untamed SLACK are available.
The Hour of Slack is produced weekly by REV. IVAN STANG (PO Box 181417, Cleveland Hts, Ohio, 44118-1417, USA) -- send tapes or CDs there for possible exploitation. Alternately, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org with your submissions (if they're under 5 mb or so, per day). Or, post them to alt.binaries.slack on Usenet.
It costs the Church to make these sacred broadcasts available. Please help keep The Hour of Slack on the "air"! -- and show the SubGenius SlackMonks and WebNuns your appreciation, by clicking the button above to donate. WON'T YOU HELP??
