Teen Crusaders for Moralty

program: 
Ubu Hour
program date: 
Mon, 01/04/2010

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...
