In addi­tion to our orig­i­nal pro­gram­ming, we fea­ture oth­er series pro­duced by third parties.

ZBS Foun­da­tion Radio Dra­ma Every Fri­day at noon and 4pm Pacific/SLT we present anoth­er episode from the clas­si­cal radio dra­mas pro­duced by our friends at ZBS Foun­da­tion. ZBS is a not-for-prof­it arts orga­ni­za­tion that’s been in exis­tence since 1970, pro­duc­ing radio/audio sto­ries. These are com­ic and cos­mic adven­tures, sci­ence fic­tion, mys­ti­cal mys­ter­ies — some with spir­i­tu­al wis­doms woven with­in. Their inten­tion has always been to raise con­scious­ness by using the media, radio and audio. Gen­er­al­ly 30-minute episodes.

The Engines of Our IngenuityThe Engines of Our Inge­nu­ity airs on Wednes­days and Sat­ur­days every four hours from 4am Pacif­ic. Writ­ten and host­ed by John Lien­hard and Hous­ton Pub­lic Media, Hous­ton, The Engines of Our Inge­nu­ity tells the sto­ry of how our cul­ture is formed by human cre­ativ­i­ty. Each 5‑minute pro­gramme uses the record of his­to­ry to reveal the way art, tech­nol­o­gy, and ideas have shaped us. Episode top­ics range from cable cars to Civ­il War sub­marines, from the con­nec­tion between Roman­tic poets and Vic­to­ri­an sci­ence to the inven­tion of the bar code.

When we’re not broad­cast­ing a spe­cial pro­gramme, tune in for a vari­ety of music, from Ear­ly Music to Clas­si­cal, Light Music and more. On Wednes­days and Sat­ur­days we fea­ture a par­tic­u­lar genre of music, and this can be quite wide-ranging.
