Summary

This classic story is filled with all kinds of teachings, from Ram Dass playing on the Wurlitzer of Wisdoms, to the Tibetan wheel-of-life, to Sufi stories, all woven into a humorous adventure taking place in an old mansion called Inverness. The mansion has three towers, but Jack Flanders has seen a fourth. When he finally enters the tower, he discovers there are various levels, and each level contains another world.

The best audio frame you will ever find.

Like radio and audio dramas? Jack Flanders is the best. I don’t know what about the production of this and the other ZBS dramas is different but the sound is amazing. Not to mention these stories have given me insight into so much of life the universe and everything.

Don’t miss out!

Escapism to the existential degree

Lovely stroll through mythical world's and random interjections of philosophy while solving a plethora of mysterious circumstances.

Eccentric, fascinating show, philosophical twist

Incredible show, love the characters and their eccentricities. Love the voice of the narrator and the rest of the cast. First heard when I was a child. Great for all ages. Similar yet different appreciation for it now. Truly takes me away with them in Inverness and it's outer limits. Philosophical twists and turns as well, levels of spirituality that I truly appreciate.

Trippy philosophy

I really enjoyed this serial. I had heard it on xm radio on their audiobook channel (that sadly enough doesn't exist anymore) years ago. The other Jack Flanders stories are also worth a listen.

Original Jack Flanders adventure, maybe the best.

This story has it all, including some goofiness at the end. But then, it's the goofiness and the fun that make it worth hearing. There's mystical adventures, lush, descriptive language, New Age philosophy, character voice acting, monsters, silly puns, witty dialog combined with witless nonsense, music, special effects... you name it. Let's not forget the Demented Demon Dwarves. It's a fun "ride" that is worth repeating.

Fourth Tower

The Fourth Tower does not disappoint. Intriguing characters develop as the story unfolds. The sound effects are excellent. First heard this back in college during early 70's and fell in love with the Fourth Tower. Now it's just as brilliant.

Well...

I remember my dad listening to this on tape 35 years ago and thinking it was kind of cool. It's a cool story, sometimes hard to follow, but still entertaining. A 70's nod to the radio serials of the past with a Buddhist twist. Audio cameos by Ram Dass!
