Introducing… The ZBS Radio Hour

New for 2010 on Radio Riel is an excit­ing new dra­ma spot: The ZBS Radio Hour, begin­ning on Jan­u­ary 16.

Every Sat­ur­day, at times to suit both US and Euro­pean lis­ten­ers — 11am and 7pm SLT (19:00 and 03:00 GMT) — we’ll be fea­tur­ing an hour of top-class radio dra­ma in con­junc­tion with ZBS Foun­da­tion.

ZBS Foun­da­tion (for­mer­ly ZBS Media) has been pro­duc­ing clas­sics of radio dra­ma since the ear­ly 1970s. They began by cre­at­ing sto­ries around new record releas­es for Warn­er-Reprise, and went on to devel­op some sim­ply stun­ning full-cast stereo radio dra­ma series, broad­cast pri­mar­i­ly on US radio sta­tions, begin­ning with The Fourth Tow­er of Inver­ness, which fol­lowed the adven­tures of young Jack Flan­ders as he dis­cov­ered secret aspects and strange peo­ple in his fam­i­ly’s Vic­to­ri­an man­sion and envi­rons. And ZBS, now a non-prof­it foun­da­tion, is pro­duc­ing new mate­r­i­al today, from their lake-island farm/studio in upstate New York.

Their sec­ond adven­ture, Moon Over Moroc­co, takes Jack to dis­cov­er hid­den, mys­ti­cal, mag­i­cal Moroc­co. With evoca­tive sounds and music actu­al­ly record­ed on loca­tion in North Africa, Moon Over Moroc­co is a deeply absorb­ing adven­ture ser­i­al in ten one-hour episodes: part Casablan­ca, part Ara­bi­an Nights — it’s almost like a movie in sound.

And this is the series with which we’ll be kick­ing off the ZBS Radio Hour, begin­ning on Jan­u­ary 16. Make a date to join us for Episode 1 of Moon Over Moroc­co! There’ll be lis­ten­ing par­ties at Radio Riel HQ on Edi­son Hypa­tia at 11am and 7pm SLT, or you can lis­ten at home on http://main.radioriel.org.

Moon Over Moroc­co starts on Jan­u­ary 16, but you can get a flavour of the series right now, by lis­ten­ing to our three trail­ers:

Moon Over Moroc­co Trail­er 1
Moon Over Moroc­co Trail­er 2
Moon Over Moroc­co Trail­er 3

We think you’ll love the ZBS Radio Hour, and Moon Over Moroc­co is just the first of the ZBS dra­mas we’ll be bring­ing you in this new slot every week. And if you like them, you can buy these and ZBS’s oth­er mag­nif­i­cent pro­duc­tions your­self — on CD or as MP3 down­loads, from http://zbs.org. Why not pop over there now and lis­ten to some of the audio sam­ples?

But what­ev­er you do, be sure to join us on Jan­u­ary 16 for the first ZBS Radio Hour and the start of Moon Over Moroc­co!
