Tune in tonight for Ubu Hour and Radio Freedomlandia's radio theater adaptation of Ayn Rand's huge novel, ATLAS SHRUGGED, about a dystopian world where big goverment, regulations, unions and taxation hinder the innovators and industrialists who struggle to make profits.. ATLAS SHRUGGED, the libertarian wet-dream, is now an Ubu Hour audio drama... and we pair it with a peice entitled FREEDOMLANDIA where a pair of lucky travellers find themselves in an Ayn Randian paradise where evil government has been replaced with the benificience of the rich people... .
(please note: this version of Atlas Shrugged has not been authorized by the Ayn Rand Institute, and is in no way associated with the recent film release..)

Another exerpt, from the April 2005 live show where we had over 50 people in the KBOO studios and production rooms. In this part, people are reading from the Bible and the US Constitution, since some political people (not to mention the "Constitutional" Party) seem to get them confused. This is followed by the only new part of the May 2011 show, a collage peice using vocal snippets of Glenn Bleck and right-wing Reverend Rod Parsley to ;show something about the use of violent rhetoric.
An exerpt from the infamous FCC show, which originally ran in Feb 2007 (when the FCC jacked up the fines for indecency and profanity) and then re-broadcasted for May 2011.. What we have here is basically the beginning of the show, where the performers are asking the FCC agents who are monitering the show what they can or can not do... ie what is the difference between indecency (which is permitted after 10 pm) and obscenity (which is not premitted at any time) .. and what are the seven deadly words...
The C-Rapture...or should it be called the Crap-ture... This is an excerpt from the Kapitalist Manifesto, and orginally aired back on July 4th 2005 as part of a "Patriotic Show" and recycled for the May 2011 show... The ocean levels are rising, the environment is turning toxic, but certain people in power don't care.. they have another plan, while the rest of us get LEFT BEHIND....
Here's the May 2011 Ubu Hour, including the dada membership drive cut ups and other extraneous stuff.. thsi show was mostly recycled stuff and includes The CRap-ture (a Left Behind parody), part of the FCC show, and some other stuff.. some of this can also be downloaded seperately if you don't want to sit through the people asking for money to help the radio station.
A radio-theater dramatization of Antonin Artaud's short surrealist play, JET OF BLOOD (also translated as SPURT OF BLOOD) written in 1925... Artaud presents a fantastic temporal spectrum of creation and destruction speeded up and slowed down, like a phonograph record. Associating gluttony and lust, sex and violence, even innocence and swinishness, The Jet of Blood attacks the senses with bizarre sights and sounds as it reaches toward our subconscious impulses and fears.
The play was adapted for radio by Rolf Semprebon and performed by Rolf, Zasus Sweetlips, G Violetta, Rascho, Dave Slacker, Jeff, Stella, and Christie.
