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!?
