The ZBS Radio Hour: Moon Over Morocco Part 7

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Saturday, 27 February, 2010

This week on the ZBS Radio Hour, at 11am repeated at 7pm SLT (19:00 and 03:00 GMT),* we present the seventh episode of Moon Over Morocco — a classic adventure serial in ten hour-long episodes — part Casablanca, part Arabian Nights.

Jack Flanders is enveloped in the mysterious other world of myth and legend. Is he the Son of El Kabar… or the ruthless tyrant he seeks to overthrow? Or both? What is the Contessa Zarzinia up to?

The environments in Moon Over Morocco were recorded by author “Meatball” Fulton while travelling around that country. Listen on headphones! Music was recorded by Paul Bowles.

Featuring Robert Lesser as Kasbah Kelly, Dave Adams as the pianist Mojo Sam and Taurean Blacque as the storyteller Mustafa.

If you enjoy Moon Over Morocco, you can obtain it, and many other recordings, on CD or as mp3 downloads from the web site. And right now, there’s a special deal on cassette copies of the stories.

Join us this and every Saturday for the ZBS Radio Hour — audio adventure at its best from ZBS Foundation.

To listen, join us for a cup of tea at our listening party, which from now on will be held in the delightful Conservatory of the Clarendon in New Babbage (

*A note on timing: The show will begin after the end of the track playing at the top of the hour (we like to complete pieces of music). As a result the programme may start up to a few minutes after the hour.

I can't believe it. I finally found what I've been looking for, for such a long time. I used to listen to amazing fantasy, sci fi radio dramas, well let's say a lifetime ago. The alternative radio station I was listening to must have stopped carrying them, and in time I more or less forgot about them; but recently I've been frustrated at not being able to find anything that would lead me to them. I only remembered there was a "Z" in the name, but that wasn't enough for a search. Just this afternoon, I was wondering if I might be able to get some help at one of the old time radio sites I've been visiting the last few days. That's the path I took to find your fine site (indirectly), and lo and behold I see that it wasn't all a figment of my hazy memories of a long lost era. I'm looking forward to listening to the current episodes. Count me a grateful new listener.

I actually came here looking for something on the Clockwork Dolls, whom I just heard for the first time today. So it's a double win; my lucky day.
