Friends, this is probably the least typical Hour of Slack ever, with no weird audio cut-ups, no Rudy Schwartz Project music, no Psycho Skeletons or Rainmakers, no Lonesome Cowboy Dave, no Stang to speak of, in fact almost no SubGenius radio babbling or ranting at all. This whole episode is one SubGenius talking: Stang's father, "Pappy." He was a colorful character, a raconteur. He worked as a labor lawyer, but he was also a skilled woodworker and a Captain in Naval Intelligence in the Navy Reserve... and a 32nd degree Mason. His job, and the Navy as well, took him all over, and in his spare time he had some adventures. He was probably around 83 years old when we recorded his true story of going out on the ice for five days with a family of Eskimos - not city Eskimos, but the kind that drive dogsleds, holler "Mush!" and slay seals and polar bears. It's a sometimes funny, sometimes blood-curdling account.
