Well, look at that, we’re coming up on the anniversary of September 11th,the day we all mourn the 200,000 people who have been lost since that day to alcohol poisoning.  No, it’s the 250,000 who have died in car accidents.  No that can’t be right, it must be the 300,000 who died of Alzheimer’s or the 3.6 million that died of heart attacks.  Oh I’m forgetting, it’s the THREE thousand that died in the buildings that are more dead than anyone else.

Ubu Hour Blog

Ubu Weblog 

Okay, so this is a blog... This is the Ubu Hour weblog. I've never
done a blog before and I really don't know what I'm doing here or why I'm doing this.  Maybe to try and generate some kind of discussion on radio theater, and to announce what will be coming up on the Ubu Hour, and who knows what else.

Anyway, the next Ubu Hour happens Monday 9/3/07 at 11 pm on KBOO 90.7 fm, bringing  you more fine radio theater.
