The ZBS Radio Hour: Two New Serials!

Join us at 11am and 7pm SLT (19:00 and 0:300 UK time) for the first instal­ments of our two thrilling new ZBS seri­als: Dreams of Rio, which fea­tures won­der­ful live ato­m­os­pheres cap­tured in Brazil; and, at the half-hour, Ruby 3: The Invis­i­ble World, brought to you cour­tesy of our friends at

Hyp­not­ic voodoo beats, lush jun­gle nois­es, trop­i­cal rains, an enig­mat­ic Euro­pean Pro­fes­sor, an allur­ing female anthro­pol­o­gist… a few of the ingre­di­ents in Dreams of Rio, an engag­ing romp through the forests and sam­ba clubs of Brazil. The series chron­i­cles the trop­i­cal adven­tures of hero Jack Flan­ders as he treks through the mys­te­ri­ous wilds of Brazil­ian rain­forests and impos­si­ble sit­u­a­tions in his search for the Lost City. The crisp, stereo record­ings come vibrant­ly alive with lus­cious ambi­ent sound record­ed on loca­tion in Brazil.

Dreams fol­lows Jack who escapes from the U.S., a coun­try trans­formed into a giant shop­ping mall, and under­takes a jour­ney to Rio to retrieve a stat­ue for a friend. Once in his hands, the stat­ue cracks open to reveal a crys­tal skull. This is just the begin­ning of an end­less chain of chill­ing plot twists and turns. Along the way, Jack encoun­ters vam­pire bats, voodoo musi­cians, a Car­men Miran­da muse­um, and an allur­ing Ger­man anthro­pol­o­gist, Frie­da, with whom he falls hope­less­ly in love. Togeth­er they jour­ney to the Lost City.

In Ruby 3: The Invis­i­ble World, Ruby and Inan­na join forces to find the source of the dark force in The Invis­i­ble World — home to the very strange Astral Bar and Grill, where the décor adapts to the per­son­al­i­ty of each new arrival. This adven­ture is dark, mys­ti­cal and some­times a lit­tle scary. Some of it goes pret­ty deep and calls on ancient Sumer­ian mythol­o­gy. This time, Ruby isn’t kid­ding around!
