Unceasing Sea

It's April Fools day on the Ubu Hour.. so instead of the usual absurdist comedy and silliness,  we bring you THE UNCEASING SEA, a dark, serious radio drama about a couple near the end of their life, as they listen to the ocean and ruminate about life and death, language and climate change. 

And we bring you the plunderphonic radio theater peice BREATH DEEP.. which delves deep into madness and psychological thrills...

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? In a dystopic future where the power grid has failed and civilization begins to crumble, this question is examined in a hyper-violent and mysterious tale of murder and seduction and revenge, where sometimes the picture is not what it seems, and where words become lies.

Ubu Hour Holiday Show..

First up, Swill O'Riled and Ann Coultergeist discover yet another front on the war on Christmas: The Mayan Calender predicts the end of the world a few days before December 25th!

And.. because it's the holidays, instead of our usual fare of lurid sex and violence, Ubu Hour will instead feature a wholesome tale from the Old Testament of the Holy Bible. This story, taken from the Book of Judges, will warm the hearts of the whole family.. A Biblical epic about loss and redemption, sin and good-will, love and sacrifice. .

Ubu Half Hour April Membership Drive Special

program: 
Ubu Hour
program date: 
Mon, 04/07/2008

The Ubu Half Hour Special: Whereas most programs have specials that are as long if not longer than the normal program, the Ubu Hour does things differently, by airing only half an hour this month. As a treat to the KBOO members, we will inflict half as much Ubu Hour insipidness and inanity on the listening public. Not only is it only half an hour long, but the Ubu 1/2-Hour contains no new radio theater, just some excerpts from previous shows (The Torturer's Apprentice and the rather notorious FCC Show, either of which can be obtained by calling 503 232-8818 or 1 877- 500-5266 by Friday Apr 11th)  as well as the usual begging and pleading for the money which this radio station needs.

Ubu Hour

Sun, 03/02/2008

Second half of the Ubu Hour's March 2008 program..

Ubu Hour
program date: 
Sun, 02/03/2008

The third and final chapter in the UBU HOUR's completely warped Audio Drama about the Second Coming of Jesus, this one is titled CRUCIFICTION ERECTION. Even more perverse, foul and filthy than the other two parts of this dark surreal political comedy, in this episode Jesus has been taken prisoner by the imperial forces. Prick Cheney, Ann Coutlergeist, Swill O'Riled, Reverend Spat Rotburpson, and Commander in Theif Dubya Tush plan to lead in the enhanced interror-gation and punishment of the prisoner, but other forces are afoot..... Warning! This program contains excessive profanity, indecency, nudity, violence, torture, rape, lurid descriptions of disgusting acts, masturbation, Biblical incest, drugs and an orgy on top of an elephant. Listener discretion is strongly advised.

STIGMATA GLORY HOLE, the second part of the Ubu Hour's surreal black comedy Second Life of Jesus the Avenger Trilogy.  In this episode Jesus is pursued by vicious Bleak Water contractors while trying to sabotage a Republican presidential candidate debate and hilarity ensues. This audio drama contains profanity, indecency, sex, violence, torture, perversity, male organ enlargement surgieries, lewd stigmata holes and other stuff that may offend a few people... perhaps more than a few people so listen to it at YOUR OWN RISK.
