Unceasing Sea

It's April Fools day on the Ubu Hour.. so instead of the usual absurdist comedy and silliness,  we bring you THE UNCEASING SEA, a dark, serious radio drama about a couple near the end of their life, as they listen to the ocean and ruminate about life and death, language and climate change. 

And we bring you the plunderphonic radio theater peice BREATH DEEP.. which delves deep into madness and psychological thrills...

And as an extra special treat, we have BATTLE OF THE MEMBERSHIP DRIVE PITCHERS, where you'll hear many of your favorite KBOO fund raisers duke it out on the playing field raising money for the station and giving out the phone number in an exciting sports competition...

A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words

Tonight on UBU HOUR: An audio drama that poses the question: Is a picture worth a thousand words?

Here's what's on tonight's Ubu Hour 0:00 Dead air, as the Ubu-istas seem unprepared to start their live radio theater stuff.. in fact they haven't even finished the scripts.. 8:30 Another Episode of the City That Once Worked.. 29:20 The live radio theater script.. 35:50 A docudrama about the largest school massacre ever to happen in the United States.. 50:35 A short tribute to a long-time jazz programmer who was once on KBOO and provided one of the best moments in KBOO's 45-year history. 51:30 Excerpts from the Ubu Membership Meeting.. We hear Pa Ubu (as played by Zed Craugh) explain everything that's wrong with Ubu and why Ubu is doomed to failure.
