Today on our Main Stream, enjoy a programme of music from the 1920s and 30s, composed of original recordings and more recent re-recordings. The criterion is simply that the piece was written during the period, so you’ll in fact hear performances virtually from then until now.
The programme includes jazz, dance music, big band, ragtime and popular songs — and much more.
If you like this style of music, remember that it’s available all the time on Radio Riel Dieselpunk – one of the few stations of its type on the Internet.
The Return of the ZBS Radio Hour with The Fourth Tower of Inverness
Starting this week, in memory of Robert Lorick, who played Jack Flanders in a series of adventures from 1972 onwards, we are running all the Jack Flanders shows, in chronological order as much as possible, from Fourth Tower to The Green Velvet Chair, in the return of the ZBS Radio Hour to Radio Riel Main, broadcast every Saturday at 11am and 7pm Pacific Time, that’s 19:00 and 03:00 in the UK.
So this week, we begin The Fourth Tower of Inverness, with two episodes back to back. Recorded in 1972, this classic story is filled with all kinds of Eastern mythology and mysticism, from Ram Dass playing on the Wurlitzer of Wisdoms, to the Tibetan wheel-of-life, to Sufi stories, all woven into a humorous adventure taking place in an old mansion called Inverness. The mansion has three towers, but Jack Flanders has seen a fourth. When he finally enters the tower, he discovers there are various levels, and each level contains another world. Featuring Robert Lorick as Jack Flanders, Valerie Manches as Lady Jowls, Murray Head as Lord Jowls, and M. Fulton as Chief Wampum.
And don’t forget that if you enjoy what you hear on the ZBS Radio Hour, you can download the complete series from ZBS at http://zbs.org.
