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."

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.
