News & Cultural Programming at KBOO

KBOO News | List of Public Affairs shows on KBOO

KBOO community radio has been bringing diverse communities together for forty years.  We offer over twenty hours per day of programs that are produced locally by volunteer community members.  This is critical for having local voices on the airwaves at a time when media ownership is consolidating and the remaining local entities turn to syndicated programs.  Furthermore we offer genuine diversity.  In a city that is over three-quarters white, we offer programming by and for Asian, African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, and those from many other backgrounds.  We put youth (with a part-time youth coordinator assisting), veterans, and the disabled on the air.  And we bring these communities together on and off the air!

The Most Dangerous Game Part 2

program: 
Ubu Hour
program date: 
Sun, 06/01/2008

 

Blood-lusting hunters pursue a trio of scantily-clad strippers in the Oregon Wilderness.  Second and final (Part 2) of THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME, one of the Ubu Hour's most contriversal radio dramas. Based loosely on the Richard Connelly story and using actual sound bits and dialog from a couple of early productions of this story from the 1940s (including one with Orson Welles for the show SUSPENSE) this version is incredibly violent, lurid and profane. Two blokes named Cheney and Scalia join General Zaroff for the hunt. Do not listen to this if you are easily offended!
