For the anniversary of his birth, Nov. 3rd, 1933, a survey of the ever-popular music by composer John Barry. From the flying sequence seen in Out of Africa, selections from his James Bond franchise music, but also the trip through time to Mackinac Island’s Grand Hotel for Somewhere in Time.

Nov. 17
An encore airing of our Movie Banquets episode, just in time for Thanksgiving. Have some Turkey with Jodie Foster’s Home for the Holidays, down many many hard-boiled eggs with Cool Hand Luke, aka Paul Newman, or simply make a racket with some spaghetti in The Apartment with Jack Lemmon and Shirley Maclaine.

Nov. 24
