Light Classics At Christmas

Today on Radio Riel we present a fes­ti­val of light orches­tral pieces that stretch from Sir Arthur Sul­li­van to the late 20th Cen­tu­ry, includ­ing some won­der­ful orig­i­nal sea­son­al offer­ings from the likes of Philip Lane, Alan Sil­vestri and Leroy Ander­son as well as arrange­ments (some­times quite extrav­a­gant) of well-known sea­son­al themes. There are some famil­iar full-on clas­si­cal Christ­mas items too.

The ZBS Radio Hour — includ­ing Dino­topia

Then join us at 19:00 and 03:00 GMT — that’s 11am and 7pm Pacif­ic — for the lat­est award-win­ning radio dra­ma in the ZBS Radio Hour. At the top of the hour today we bring to an end the adven­tures of Trav­el­ing Jack, while at half past the hour we bring you the final part of the amaz­ing ZBS drama­ti­sa­tion of Jim Gur­ney’s Dino­topia.

Today’s pro­gramme marks the end of the cur­rent series of the ZBS Radio Hour. We’ll be tak­ing a break for a cou­ple of weeks to return ear­ly in the New Year, when we can promise you some Steam­punk adven­tures, some dark Celtic adven­tures from Ire­land, and more from the world of Dino­topia. We’ll also be vary­ing the for­mat a lit­tle to include a num­ber of 1hr com­plete dra­mas, along­side the tra­di­tion­al 30-minute seri­als. Please join us in 2012! And many thanks to Touma for unstint­ing­ly host­ing the lis­ten­ing par­ties in-world: it’s very much appre­ci­at­ed.
