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.

The Revolution Will Not Be Funded

Categories:

Wednesday August 15th Circle A Radio focuses on the concept "The Revolution will not be funded".

We speak with Amara Perez, (the former Executive Director of Sisters in Action for Power, currently involved with happyours more information at http://happyoursproductions.com.) and Emi Koyama (a multi-issue social justice activist, more information at www.eminism.org) about their contributions to the book edited by INCITE called The Revolution Will Not Be Funded.

my very first kboo blog entry

Well, it's been about 2 months since I first started as PR & Outreach Coordinator here at KBOO. Time sure whizzes by when you're having fun and outreaching! I do believe that I started at the busiest time possible for the department, with immediate rites of initiation granted at Pride Weekend and the annual Waterfront BluesFest. The summer isn't over yet so lots more fun stuff to go...

Remix? Rap? It all goes back to Jamaica!

King Tubby (born Osbourne Ruddock, 1941-89) was a Jamaican audio engineer. He got his start by running a sound system that blasted out the latest rock steady hits at rough-and-tumble street dances in late 60s Kingston. 

After he took on a second job as disc cutter at Treasure Isle studio, he spent his spare time there experimenting with remixes or “dubs” (from “double”) of hit songs. He liked the new sounds that he got and decided to press them on acetate plates to play at a dance. 

on zombies

I’ve been thinking about zombie movies, of which the twenty-first century has seen a resurgence. The zombie movie database lists nearly 1600 films since the year 2000, though that includes shorts, tv shows, and direct to video releases. Still, many of those have been quite successful theatrical features. In 2002, we got 28 Days Later, and this year its sequel, 28 Weeks Later. In 2004, we saw a remake of George Romero’s 1978 classic Dawn of the Dead, as well as the British horror comedy Shaun of the Dead.

Celebrating the Spirit of Dave Carter

Today's show was about celebrating the life and music of one of my favorite singer songwriters--Dave Carter who died unexpectedly on July  19, 2001.  I was at the Vancouver Folk Festival in Vancouver BC (which had been a 10+ year summer pilgrimage every year, the highlight of my year). In fact, the first time I ever heard a Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer recording, 2 things were instant thoughts in my mind: 

1.  I have to get a copy of the song "The Mountain" to Joan Baez somehow and

2.  these folks HAVE to play the Vancouver Folk Festival.

your favorites?
