And as an extra special treat, we have BATTLE OF THE MEMBERSHIP DRIVE PITCHERS, where you'll hear many of your favorite KBOO fund raisers duke it out on the playing field raising money for the station and giving out the phone number in an exciting sports competition...

A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words

Tonight on UBU HOUR: An audio drama that poses the question: Is a picture worth a thousand words?
