Introducing… ZBS: Audio Adventure At Its Finest

Today, Fri­day Sep­tem­ber 17th, sees the start of a new set of radio dra­ma series from our friends at ZBS Foun­da­tion. Begin­ning as a com­mune of radio pro­duc­ers in an island stu­dio farm in upstate New York, the “Zee­bers” start­ed by cre­at­ing radio com­mer­cials and oth­er projects includ­ing albums for DJs to pro­mote new record com­pa­ny releases.

In 1972 they cre­at­ed their first radio dra­ma series, The Fourth Tow­er of Inver­ness, about an intre­pid and unin­ten­tion­al adven­tur­er, Jack Flan­ders, who sets about dis­cov­er­ing the mys­ter­ies inside a hid­den tow­er in an old Vic­to­ri­an man­sion. We’ll be broad­cast­ing The Fourth Tow­er start­ing next week, Fri­day 24th.

This week, we are bring­ing you a spe­cial 80-minute intro­duc­tion to the work of ZBS Foun­da­tion, at 12 noon and 4pm Pacif­ic / 8pm or mid­night in the UK.
