XHM #76 - "Into the bittersweet forever" (2011 August 08)

7:30am - 9:01am

The first of likely many profiles on composer Bernard Herrmann, starting off with his work for On Dangerous Ground and North by Northwest. Tributes for Amy Winehouse (1983-2011) and Eugene McDaniels (1935-2011) as well. Whilst London riots, Wall Street melts, Israel protests and everyone else goes broke, it's actually summer in Vancouver. We're kinda shallow like that; we have a tax referendum via mail-in ballot that's maybe been the only excitement here.
