Today, on the ZBS Radio Hour: Moon Over Morocco

Join us this and every Sat­ur­day for the ZBS Radio Hour — audio adven­ture at its best from ZBS Foun­da­tion — at 11am repeat­ed at 7pm SLT (Sat 7pm & Sun 3am GMT). To lis­ten, come to our lis­ten­ing par­ty at Radio Riel HQ in Edi­son Hypa­tia, or tune in at home on Radio Riel’s Main Stream.

Our first adven­ture in the ZBS Radio Hour, begin­ning today, is Moon Over Moroc­co — a clas­sic adven­ture ser­i­al in ten hour-long episodes — part Casablan­ca, part Ara­bi­an Nights, with sounds and music record­ed in Moroc­co (it sounds par­tic­u­lar­ly real­is­tic on head­phones).

Once in a far away land there exist­ed a knowl­edge of nat­ur­al mag­ic that has been lost to mod­ern human­i­ty. Jack Flan­ders treks to Moroc­co, believ­ing that in this ancient coun­try, where mag­ic remains an inte­gral part of dai­ly life, he may find this knowl­edge. Jack dis­cov­ers far more than he expect­ed when he steps through the Gate of Pea­cocks, the entrance to that lost world. Jack has stepped out of mod­ern-day Moroc­co and into the realm where the knowl­edge of mag­ic is a req­ui­site sur­vival skill.

The envi­ron­ments in Moon Over Moroc­co were record­ed by author M. Ful­ton while trav­el­ing around that coun­try. You’ll hear the Med­i­na, the Cas­bah, the music of the snake charm­ers, the lone­ly call to prayer from the minaret of the mosque, the dogs of Tang­i­er as the moon becomes full, the music of the desert tribes record­ed in the Sahara and Berber music record­ed at fes­ti­vals in the Grand Atlas and Rif Moun­tains. Music was record­ed by Paul Bowles.

Fea­tur­ing Robert Less­er as Kas­bah Kel­ly, Dave Adams as 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 ZBS.org web site.
