Feb. 2
An hour celebrating golden age film composer Max Steiner. From the classic Arsenic and Old Lace, the beachgoers paradise of A Summer Place, to a film score which had an early concert-hall version played by the University of Michigan Concert Band in 1946: Four Wives.

Feb. 9
Just in time for Valentine’s Day an hour of love stories. From Mark Knopfler’s “storybook-story” score for The Princess Bride, to the classics like Nino Rota’s lilting music for Romeo and Juliet. We’ll save a rose just for you.

Feb. 16
We’ll hit the ol’ dusty trails this week with an hour of music from Westerns. The sweeping elegance of James Horner’s Legends of the Fall, Elmer Bernstein’s stirring The Magnificent Seven, and a young lad calling out for Victor Young’s Shane.

Feb. 23
Our monthly feature highlighting newly released film scores and a selection of listener requests. Email yours to MovieMusic@wkar.org.
