From the Library: It’s Sci-Fi Saturday!

Today on Radio Riel we take you on a cin­e­mat­ic and tele­vi­su­al jour­ney into time and space — and more — as we present Sci-Fi Sat­ur­day!

Tune in and hear clas­sic SF&F movie sound­tracks from com­posers like Sir Arthur Bliss, Bernard Her­rmann, James Horner, John Williams and John Bar­ry; British and US Sci-Fi TV themes from the 50s to the present — from the clas­sic to the corny — plus a few occa­sion­al touch­es of antique elec­tron­i­ca, pop and lounge inter­pre­ta­tions to intro­duce a few sur­pris­es and keep you guess­ing. There’s space opera, there’s time trav­el, there’s steam­punk and dieselpunk, and even a lit­tle of the scary — indeed, there’s some­thing for every­one with a taste for sci­en­tif­ic romance and adven­ture.

Then join us at 11am and 7pm Sec­ond Life Time (19:00 and 03:00 UK time) for the sixth install­ment of our clas­sic ZBS Adven­ture ser­i­al, The Fourth Tow­er of Inver­ness, fol­lowed imme­di­ate­ly at the bot­tom of the hour by our sci-fi series Ruby, the Galac­tic Gumshoe, who today starts a new adven­ture: Ruby 2. It’s all in the ZBS Radio Hour, brought to you by kind per­mis­sion of our friends at! Tune in on our Main Stream or join us in per­son at the beau­ti­ful Claren­don Con­ser­va­to­ry in New Bab­bage ( And remem­ber, if you like what you hear, there’s more — much much more — at
