The ZBS Radio Hour Returns — with two new adventures!

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Saturday, 14 January, 2012

Today sees the return of the ZBS Radio Hour after its holiday break, and at 11am and 7pm Pacific (19:00 and 03:00 GMT), we are pleased to bring you two new adventures courtesy of our friends at ZBS Foundation.

At the top of the hour, join us for a brand new adventure series with Jack Flanders and his friends: The Fantastic Voyages of Jack Flanders. Our first adventure in this series is Orchids and Moonbeams.

Somewhere in the tropics, yet another beach resort is being built. The developers are planning to put a road through a valley the locals consider sacred, they believe a powerful Nature Spirit dwells there. As the developers bulldoze into the jungle, and the warm tropical rains continue, the jungle is sprouting up everywhere. At Maria’s Café, chairs are sprouting leaves, tables are growing roots, vines are creeping over the counter, and orchids are clinging to the walls. One morning, Mojo finds a snake coiled up on his chair, “Oops, looks like this seat’s been taken.” Jaguars are seen strolling through town, while spiders, iguanas, tree frogs, etc., are hopping and crawling everywhere. There’s even a parrot infestation. In the local bars, scarlet macaws snatch pretzels out of patron’s fingers. Meanwhile, Jack, Mojo, and Claudine are attempting to prove the Nature Spirit not only exists, she may have just begun to “even the score.”

Then at the bottom of the hour, tune in for Part 1 of Land of Enchantment.

Mojo takes a job playing piano at the Armadillo Bistro and Cabaret in Coyote, New Mexico, where he’s drawn into an adventure with a cast of wild west characters, including a 100 year old curandera (medicine woman), and an Apache spirit guide who is one helluva prankster.

And don’t forget, if you enjoy the fabulous adventures you can hear every week in the ZBS Radio Hour, you can download them yourself (or get them on CD) from the ZBS Foundation web site, at!
