ALICE IN PLUNDERLAND or ALEC IN WONDERLAND

Ubu Hour Radio Theater presents ALEC IN WONDERLAND/ or ALICE IN PLUNDERLAND. The White Rabbit brings Alice back to Wonderland, to combat ALEC (The American Legislative Exchange Council), The Red Queen (Michele Bachmann) and the utterly Mad Tea Party as they subvert freedoms to allow the large corporations and the rich and powerful to become even richer and more powerful. It's a strange, surreal trip that involves militaristic playing cards, horny rodents, mad hatters, Jabbersquawks who spew the airwaves with hate propaganda, and a talking cake who says "EAT ME!" Learn how the trickle down theory of economics benefits the poor and disposessed... A non-stop adventure into the bizarre, strange and profane...

Ubu and the Arizona Shooting

Whereas others have used the recent shootings in Arizona as a time of mourning and reflection, the UBU HOUR uses this tragic event for totally crass and offensive satire... Tonight we present two "high caliber" audio dramas that "target" themes around what happened that day in Arizona . 

A new episode of The CITY THAT ONCE WORKED "takes aim" with more local political satire, through the "target scope" of the Arizona event, as local politicians, FBI agents and hipsters are put in the "crosshairs."

NEW SHOW! THE TOFU HOUR

We regret to inform our listeners that the UBU HOUR will not be airing in December. We are being pre-empted by a show called the TOFU HOUR.  So instead of another Ubu anti holiday disgust-fest, we get an hour of news and stuff about tofu and other soy products. Oh, well.

Golden Oldies Intro

program date: 
Mon, 01/03/2011

The intro to this month's Ubu Hour... dedacated to all that radio brings.. golden oldies, classic rock, talk radio and all the other stuff meant to put you in a comfortable place so other voices can try to sell you something. Sure this is only an "intro" to the show, but it's 10-minutes long and gives one a good idea about how low the Ubu Hour is willing to go in an effort to be different but really not being different at all.

The Ubu's Blatent Use of Sex to Get New Members

program: 
Ubu Hour
program date: 
Thu, 10/07/2010

The Ubu Hour reached a new low this Membership Drive with the following pledge pitch, which sounds more like the come-on to a phone sex line than to become a member of a community radio station. Heavy breathing and moaning, creaking bed springs, seductive voices urging you to call the number (in this case the air room number, since the regular phone answers fled the building as soon as the show began to air)   Normally KBOO doesn't post audio of people asking for donations, but because this one is so utterly dispicable, in using eroticism to lure potential members, that we decided to post it so that other people could see just how low the Ubu Hour is willing to stoop... Please do not call the phone number.. instead you can click on the tip jar in the upper right corner and DONATE TODAY...  

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING AUDIO FILE CONTAINS MATERIAL SUITABLE FOR "MATURE" AUDIENCES ONLY. 

  • Length: 8:12 minutes (5.63 MB)

Penis

program: 
Ubu Hour
program date: 
Mon, 10/04/2010

This peice was a soundfile discovered in Richard Francis's folder on the KBOO computer system. Richard was a long-time host of A Different Nature, here at KBOO, as well as the main person behind the various Dada and Surrealism Festivals we've had. He was a wonderful person, who is really missed, since he passed away in Sept of 2009. As for this peice, we are not sure if was intended for Desolo Vox Luna Theatrum (the great dada/surrealism show started by Richard that we air here on KBOO on every 5th Monday) or if it was for something else..  

Anyway, the orginal soundfile contained vocals only, so we decided to add a bit of music at the beginning and end (provided by the Master Musicians of Kazoo-ka) and a whole lot of sound effects, and voila, a new Ubu Hour peice... The title is Penis.. that was the title of the file, and we couldn't think of a better one..

It's a very funny peice.. though perhaps not appropriate for younger audiences or more sensative listeners..
