Working in New York City isn't easy. In fact it can be the stuff of high drama in movies and TV. As "Mad Men" returns for a new season Sunday night, host David Garland presents soundtracks from the show, as well as other dramas set at least in part in the New York workplace.

From the bizarre comedies ("Putney Swope") to the darker dramas ("The Apartment"), the ups and downs of employment are given musical accompaniment by some of Hollywood's finest composers.

Note: This half-hour show will air at 9:30 pm, following WQXR's live Orpheus broadcast
