I don't see a link to play this show. Accident or by design?

This was a terrific episode. It was such a relief that Francis Lai was excluded. And the emphasis on Williams's ability to write tender music was welcome.

Like Lancelot for Guenviere, Princess Leia's theme filled me again with the pure passion of first love. John Williams became a god to me when I brought home and practically memorized his wonderful soundtrack. With Star Wars, he made me believe anything is possible and heroes do exist.

Thank you for choosing such a perfect memory for your love theme.
