Saturday At The Movies / Fourth Tower of Inverness

If it’s pour­ing with rain or even snow­ing where you are, what bet­ter thing to do than enjoy a movie – or in this case, a movie or tele­vi­sion sound­track or two? Well, that’s just what we have for you today.

Along with a few recent releas­es, you’ll hear a bunch of favourites, clas­sics and oth­er film and TV music going back to the dawn of the genre. There’s per­haps a slight bias towards SF and F. Pick up some pop­corn and some­thing wet and fizzy and set­tle back in the best seat in the house – your own.

The Return of the ZBS Radio Hour with The Fourth Tow­er of Inver­ness

fourth-towerStart­ing this week, in mem­o­ry of Robert Lorick, who played Jack Flan­ders in a series of adven­tures from 1972 onwards, we are run­ning all the Jack Flan­ders shows, in chrono­log­i­cal order as much as pos­si­ble, from Fourth Tow­er to The Green Vel­vet Chair, in the return of the ZBS Radio Hour to Radio Riel Main, broad­cast every Sat­ur­day at 11am and 7pm Pacif­ic Time, that’s 19:00 and 03:00 in the UK.

So this week, we begin The Fourth Tow­er of Inver­ness, with two episodes back to back. Record­ed in 1972, this clas­sic sto­ry is filled with all kinds of East­ern mythol­o­gy and mys­ti­cism, from Ram Dass play­ing on the Wurl­itzer of Wis­doms, to the Tibetan wheel-of-life, to Sufi sto­ries, all woven into a humor­ous adven­ture tak­ing place in an old man­sion called Inver­ness. The man­sion has three tow­ers, but Jack Flan­ders has seen a fourth. When he final­ly enters the tow­er, he dis­cov­ers there are var­i­ous lev­els, and each lev­el con­tains anoth­er world. Fea­tur­ing Robert Lorick as Jack Flan­ders, Valerie Manch­es as Lady Jowls, Mur­ray Head as Lord Jowls, and M. Ful­ton as Chief Wampum.

And don’t for­get that if you enjoy what you hear on the ZBS Radio Hour, you can down­load the com­plete series from ZBS at

Please note that there will not be an episode next week­end, Feb­ru­ary 13.
