Ubu June 2015
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.....

Here's what's on tonight's Ubu Hour 0:00 Dead air, as the Ubu-istas seem unprepared to start their live radio theater stuff.. in fact they haven't even finished the scripts.. 8:30 Another Episode of the City That Once Worked.. 29:20 The live radio theater script.. 35:50 A docudrama about the largest school massacre ever to happen in the United States.. 50:35 A short tribute to a long-time jazz programmer who was once on KBOO and provided one of the best moments in KBOO's 45-year history. 51:30 Excerpts from the Ubu Membership Meeting.. We hear Pa Ubu (as played by Zed Craugh) explain everything that's wrong with Ubu and why Ubu is doomed to failure. This is easily the best thing in the show, and why they chose to stick it in last ten minutes, when most people have tuned out or have fallen asleep is beyond me..
