KLBP & The Port of Long Beach Present: A 30th Anniversary Screening of UHF
You could say that KLBP’s launch story draws a lot of parallel’s to Weird Al’s UHF, so we can’t think of a better movie to celebrate the spirit of public media and all the thrills, challenges, and wackiness that come along with it.
UHF (1989) — After losing yet another job, George (Weird Al Yankovic) wonders if there is any career that can handle his outrageous personality. When George’s uncle (Stanley Brock) hands him the deed to a local TV station, George creates a series of television shows based on social satire and hyperactive humor, with the help of his best friend, Bob (David Bowe). However, a rival station’s bitter CEO (Kevin McCarthy) tries to destroy George’s wacky programming, forcing him to fight back.
Tickets $10 | Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit KLBP, Long Beach Public Radio.
