I’ve been listening to a program called “The Score” on my local classical music station, KQAC. Every week the program host focuses either on a particular composer, or movie director, or theme. This week it was the composer Hans Zimmer, who composed the music for both The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons. Good stuff. I may have to buy the soundtracks for these movies, even if I don’t ever get around to watching the flicks themselves. I’ve never seen either movie, but the music is really intense.
The station streams over the Web, you can tune in at All Classical.org. This particular program runs every Saturday from 4:00-5:00PM (Pacific Time). It’s really fun, and Edmund Stone is a very entertaining, often hilarious host.
The program is part of their “On Demand” line-up, so if you want to hear it anytime over the next two weeks (I think it’s two weeks) you can go to the Web site, click on “Listen Now” then the “On Demand” button, and select “The Score with Edmund Stone”. (don’t try it if you’re on dial-up, as I am. I have to catch it the first time around over the air) They are listener-supported so you won’t have to put up with commercials.
If you like what you hear, you can pull up playlists, and there should be a “Buy Now” button that will link to ArkivMusic. If you buy through them the station gets a percentage of the sale.
Enjoy the music!
