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.

The Night of the Exploding Eyes & Rime of the Ancient Mariner

The day after halloween and the day before the Day of the Dead... Tune in for an Ubu Hour Double Feature

First up.. The eyes are the windows to the soul, Shakespeare once said, but what happens if the windows explode? NIGHT OF THE EXPLODING EYES is a jarring, gorey, shocking tale about.. well, eyeballs exploding out of people's heads..

And then.. Sailors face death on a ghost ship in Samuel Coleridge's long and haunting poem THE RIME OF THE ANCIENT MARINER...

Ubu Membership Special

The Ubu Membership special.. though what's so special about it, is beyond me. Sure there's yet another episode of The City That Once Worked and a spoof about what one drinks at a Tea Party meeting, and some old play that Sudden Radio Project rejected, but probably the low point is the bit where Richard Francis and a couple friends tell big penis jokes.  Is this the best the Ubu Hour can do?  Why does valuable radio time have to be taken up by this inane drivial? Maybe someone will feel sorry for these pathetic people and donate money to the station.

YES, IT'S THE FABULOUS UBU MEMBERSHIP SPECIAL! LAUGHS, THRILLS AND MORE!

Two new Ubu Hour shows will air on this night. 

The contraversal history book, THE PINK SWASTIKA, written by Scott Lively and Kevin Abrams,
is now an Ubu Hour audio drama! The Ubu delves into Nazis, homosexuals, special rights, and the
 secret "agenda" in America today to take over our schools. 

Another major sex scandal rips through THE CITY THAT ONCE WORKED, when a masseuse accuses 
a former vice President of acting like a crazed sex poodle. Faux News air-bags Swill
O'Riled and Ann Coultergeist jump into the fray.

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

Golden Oldies Intro

Ubu Hour
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.

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)
