Saturday At The Movies

The weath­er may be total­ly obnox­ious where you are, so how about stay­ing in for a movie or your favourite TV show — or at least, their theme and inci­den­tal music? That’s what we’re play­ing today, in a pro­gramme that cross­es the years and many musi­cal gen­res.

Lis­ten out for mod­ern movie favourites by Hans Zim­mer, John Bar­ry, John Williams, Jer­ry Gold­smith and many more, plus his­toric sound­tracks going back to the 30s and beyond.

Pick up some pop­corn and some­thing wet and fizzy and set­tle back in the best seat in the house — your own.

ZBS Radio Hour

Some­thing strange hap­pened last Sat­ur­day and as a result, some of the shows did­n’t go out. So we’re run­ning them again today.

Tune in at 11am or 7pm Pacif­ic time (19:00 or 03:00 GMT) for the start of two new adven­tures in the ZBS Radio Hour.

We begin with Jack Flan­ders in a two-part sto­ry The Ah-Ha Phe­nom­e­non. Jack Flan­ders returns, dis­guised as a dervish, and tip toes through invis­i­ble planes in search of the ancient archives that hold all the great past, present, and future Ah-Ha’s! Jack encoun­ters trolls, wiz­ards, demons and mytho­log­i­cal beasts on his quest for the won­der­ful Ah-Ha’s.

Jack is fol­lowed by Ruby the Galac­tic Gumshoe in The Under­world (aka Ruby 3). Ancient Sumer­ian mythol­o­gy and oth­er mys­ti­cal gems weave through­out this taut galac­tic gumshoe extrav­a­gan­za. Ruby, our feisty super-sleuth with an over­dose of sass, has been hired to inves­ti­gate a dis­tinct­ly evil force that is seep­ing through the walls of Mag­nifi­co, the City of Malls. Mean­while Inan­na is on her own trip into the Under­world to face the Sev­en Gates, the dark fem­i­nine god­dess, and quite pos­si­bly her death!

Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin. You can lis­ten to the pro­gramme at, or sim­ply click here to start your play­er, if your brows­er is con­fig­ured to do so. Lis­ten­ers in the Unit­ed States are encour­aged to tune in using this link:
