The NEW UBU

Has the Ubu Hour fallen in a rut in recent months, relying on movie cut-ups, tired sequals, and re-runs of
old programs? Tonight we change all that as we bring you THE NEW UBU with two new radio programs.  

DOUCHE-LAND UBU ALICE
A two part piece about the Ubu's attempt to finish a new script about a man trapped in a room with a voice that tries to convince him to kill himself. Or maybe it's about something else instead. 

OUR LITTLE MAYOR PART 20
Another tale of the abuse and misuse of power in Portland, as the Ubu Hour gets taken over by outside forces in the aftermath of a previous contraversy. Or maybe it's about something else...

If Footmen Tire You, What Will Horse Do?

Tonight the Ubu Hour airs a radio theater adaptation of Reverend Estus Pirkle's
1971 movie classic, IF FOOTMEN TIRE YOU, WHAT WILL HORSES DO? In this fascinating
audio drama, Reverend Pirkle warns us of how Communism plans to take over America,
or maybe, with the Obama presidency, they already have! The Pelosi socialized helath
care nightmare is only the next step! This audio drama, based on true facts, will
wake you up to the evils of socialism, and give you important advice on how to
get America back on the right path. Otherwise in the next 24 months we'll all be
forced to chant for 17 hours a day: "COMMUNISM IS GOODD! CHRISTIANITY IS STUPID!"

BOOK OF HOLES Part II: Ubu Easter S-it

For April on the day after a holiday, we air a sequel to the BOOK OF HOLES...
Part II: THE UBU S-ITS ON EASTER...

Is it a strange and surreal trip into the erotic garden of Eden?
Is it a celebration of the classic battle between a zombie savior and Ostara, the goddess of fertility?
Is it a hilarious look at contradictions in a Holy Book?
Is it a vicious satirical attack on Western religion?
Or is it merely an ameturish production with feable attempts of humor with profanity and filth? 

Tune in and find out!
You think the new health care legislation made them mad? They'll be out in the streets with pitchforks and uzus when they hear.. BOOK OF HOLES PART II: UBU EASTER S-IT
