New Year, New Beginnings

Saturday, January 01, 2011

One of the great cinematic themes is redemption: the second chance to make good. Story arcs often take us from dark days to bright new days, and music provides the uplift for a happy, hopeful conclusion. Host David Garland offers music for fresh starts and New Years, from a variety of film scores.

Happy New Year in your new digs, David, and here's hoping you stick to your resolution to bring us movie music in the New Year! Always love your show. Really happy that it's available in archive format for the weeks I can't be here to listen.
