Movies give us plenty of monsters and murderers, but sometimes the most powerful thrills and chills are found in movies about families. How we connect and are connected, relate and are related, can certainly be the stuff of drama. On this week's Movies on the Radio, host David Garland presents music combining stirring conflict and gentle tenderness from The Best Years of Our Lives, The Magnificent Ambersons, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, The Godfather, and more.
