Today on Radio Riel, please join us for a day of music from the Victorian and Edwardian eras.

The show will include popular songs and ballads; many of the marvellous musical confections of Mr Lionel Monckton and Messrs Gilbert and Sullivan; a selection of Waltzes and other famous Dances; and, from time to time, we shall regale you with the sounds of the latest in Mechanical Instrumentation, including the famous Carousel Steam-Organ.

A Good Time is Guaranteed for All.

ZBS Radio Hour

R9Then join us at 11am and 7pm SLT (7pm and 3am UK time) today (Saturday) for the ZBS Radio Hour — first, it’s the final episode of Midnight At Casa Luna, followed by a new series of Ruby, the Galactic Detective: Masque of the Red Moon — this time with a Steampunk theme, brought to you courtesy of our friends at ZBS.org.

Ruby is hired to find who or what has caused a plague in the city of Aberdeen Dundee on Victoria Moon. And/Or, T.J. Teru, and Rodant Kapoor, join Ruby as they explore this eccentric retro-Victorian society where everyone is pretending to be someone else.

In Aberdeen Dundee, known as The City of Lost Illusions, the people have moved into the catacombs beneath the city. They all wear masks, and the masks are alive!

Pretending to be a crackpot inventor by the name of Professor Farking Foots-Foots, T.J. Teru is commissioned to build a submersible for the The Hoochie Coochie Man. The submarine has an odd name, Mister Coochie is calling it, The Red Herring.

Also incognito, And/Or is managing a circus called, Carking Cowputter’s Coronation Circus and Mechanical Menagerie. But most surprising of all, Rodant Kapoor has opened a swanky nightclub called, Chez Rodant.

Meanwhile the plague continues to spread out across the moon.

And while we’re at it, here’s an audio message from Jack Flanders, in the Hotel Maghreb in Tangier. Evidently it didn’t fall down after all!?
