NEW YEARS DAY SPECIAL. - The Man With the Twisted Lip by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
One night in June, 1889, Doctor Watson is called away from his home on a strange errand of mercy, which takes him to a sinister opium den located near the docks in London's East End. Where, to his astonishment, he finds disguised as an aged drug addict none other than Sherlock Holmes! Who promtly asks his old friend to accompany him on one of the most baffling cases he has ever come across. This story was among Conan Doyles's first 12 mystery short stories to appear in the Strand Magazine in 1889, and the1890 collection, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.
During the January 2010 Ubu Hour, some female youths identifying themselves as the Teen Crusaders for Morality took over the air waves, to replace the foul and profane Ubu Hour with their own radio theater show. Here's the aircheck of what happened before we were able to broadcast the actual Ubu Hour from the second air room... also because we ran out of material about 6 minutes early, we aired the end of the Teen Crusaders show, since they never realized their mics had been disconnected from the airsignal, and were still doing their show... So this is it.. the beginning of their show, and the end.... which served as bookends to the Ubu Hour show since we were little short on material...
CLIMATE CHANGE DEBATE - The Ubu Hour brings in some newsy types and a couple scientists on opposing sides of the climate change debate. After all, isn't that what we need? More debates... Voices by Alicia, Noah, Rambo, Rolf and Sweet-tooth.
Viv Ubu narrates only two different tales of abuse of power.. from the local to the national... (please note that part of this show has been deleted for reasons which may or may not be divulged in The Ubu Hour in the distant future.)
DOG BISCUIT - For all the dog lovers out there, a piece about a man on a business trip away from his family and his beloved dog Rex. Why does everything seem slightly different to him? Twilight Zone inspired weirdness, with voices by G Violetta, In the Red, Jeff Kipilman, Rabia, Rascoe, Semprebon and Sweet-tooth.
