Tonight on the Ubu Hour:

MONSANTO DREAMS:  It seems there’s been nothing but bad news in America lately. The death of Sandra Bland in a Texas jail, the House passing a bill that prohibits the labeling of GMO foods. And that’s just a start. However, on tonight’s Ubu Hour, we find out that what most of us consider bad news can, for a select few, be the stuff dreams are made of.

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.....

Sun, 06/01/2008

Blood-lusting hunters pursue a trio of scantily-clad strippers in the Oregon Wilderness.  Part 1 of THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME, one of the Ubu Hour's most contriversal radio dramas. Based loosely on the Richard Connelly story and using actual sound bits and dialog from a couple of early productions of this story from the 1940s (including one with Orson Welles for the show SUSPENSE) this version is incredibly violent, lurid and profane. Cheney and Scalia join General Zaroff for the hunt. Do not listen to this if you are easily offended!
