Hour of Slack #1769 - The Fabulous Number 69!


This MIGHT be the greatest Hour of Slack episode of all time -- and it was a lost episode until this week! It's our sixty-ninth episode, from late 1986, and it was a kind of a "best of" collection of some of the best stuff that many SubGeniuses recorded up until then. Includes songs, rants, and collages by Slackmaster Cleve, Byron Werner, Rev. Bleepo Abernathy, Puzzling Evidence, Dr. Hal, Rev. Ivan Stang, Doug #3, Gary G'Broagfran, Sister Krys (her sermon on "The 'Feminist' Conspiracy!"), The Firesign Theater, Ken Nordine, Oingo Boingo, G. Gordon Gordon, and the great Doktorz 4 "Bob"! Thanks to Rev. Rasfeld for recording this off the air when it first aired in Dallas, and somehow keeping the recording for 34 years!

NOTE: THE HOUR OF SLACK is released in two versions.

The X-RATED "INTERNET VERSION" contains all original "fucks," "shits," "God damns," etc., and this is the one which is downloadable from SubSITE and which is sent to individual subscribers OR non-American radio stations.

All American radio stations (except WORT, Madison) are sent the "PG RATED CENSORED VERSION," which has the Bad Words either reversed, bleeped, or replaced with the spoken word "Bob", depending on what works best.

The Church of the SubGenius Radio Ministry seeks to brainwash you totally into abject lifelong subservience to The High Epopt and Living SlackMaster, J. R. "Bob" Dobbs, BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.
