The Ubu Syndication Promo - It was supposed to be top secret (in case the Ubu Hour got kicked off the air) but accidentally aired on 10/06/08, so here it is for the rest of the world. This audio track is the special promo that the Ubu Hour was planning on mailing to various media entities in a lame attempt to syndicate the show. Serves as a great look at behind the scenes at the Ubu Hour, where high quality radio theater gets made (cough, cough).  Please support the Ubu Hour and this community radio station by clicking on the "JOIN NOW" that you see at the top of your screen.
