rfg #54 - "Strange pillows of my wanderlust" (2009 February 16)

7:30am - 9:02am

The final of four weeks of Oscar-nomiated scores: James Newton Howard for Defiance, plus a few remaining bits from Thomas Newman's work from WALL-E. Then there's a quick profile of David Byrne's scorework and collaborations with Brian Eno. What weather for Reading Week. Hope I don't get a sore throat in the end.
