Today, on the ZBS Radio Hour: Moon Over Morocco

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Saturday, 16 January, 2010

Join us this and every Saturday for the ZBS Radio Hour — audio adventure at its best from ZBS Foundation — at 11am repeated at 7pm SLT (Sat 7pm & Sun 3am GMT). To listen, come to our listening party at Radio Riel HQ in Edison Hypatia, or tune in at home on Radio Riel’s Main Stream.

Our first adventure in the ZBS Radio Hour, beginning today, is Moon Over Morocco — a classic adventure serial in ten hour-long episodes — part Casablanca, part Arabian Nights, with sounds and music recorded in Morocco (it sounds particularly realistic on headphones).

Once in a far away land there existed a knowledge of natural magic that has been lost to modern humanity. Jack Flanders treks to Morocco, believing that in this ancient country, where magic remains an integral part of daily life, he may find this knowledge. Jack discovers far more than he expected when he steps through the Gate of Peacocks, the entrance to that lost world. Jack has stepped out of modern-day Morocco and into the realm where the knowledge of magic is a requisite survival skill.

The environments in Moon Over Morocco were recorded by author M. Fulton while traveling around that country. You’ll hear the Medina, the Casbah, the music of the snake charmers, the lonely call to prayer from the minaret of the mosque, the dogs of Tangier as the moon becomes full, the music of the desert tribes recorded in the Sahara and Berber music recorded at festivals in the Grand Atlas and Rif Mountains. Music was recorded by Paul Bowles.

Featuring Robert Lesser as Kasbah Kelly, Dave Adams as Mojo Sam and Taurean Blacque as the Storyteller Mustafa.

If you enjoy Moon Over Morocco, you can obtain it, and many other recordings, on CD or as mp3 downloads from the ZBS.org web site.
