The Ubu Hour opened our Oct 6, 2008 show with an apology for the ageist attacks made on a certain presidential candidate in the last several shows. We're very sorry. And then after that we beg ask listeners for money because this radio station needs your support. We don't get financing from big corporations, we get it from people like you. So why don't you click that button that says "JOIN NOW." Help us out, and keep weird stuff like this alive on the web.
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.

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.
