Oh, no... tonight promises to be another train-wreck of a show, when no one shows up with a script for the radio theater...How much can things devolve into complete chaos in an hour?  All participants in tonight's episode deny the existance of thier participation... Perhaps it's all just a bad dream for them, for the listeners, and for everyone else who contributes to the quality programming that is heard at any other time on KBOO radio, but tonight between 11 pm and midnight. This hour will be best forgotten by those few who will actually listen.. as the Ubu stumbles into another utter disaster of wasted time on the airwaves.....
