XHM #71 - "From the fjords to the prairies to the pyramids" (2011 June 27)

7:30am - 9:03am

I've never profiled Alex North before, so in recent tribute to the late Liz Taylor, here's North's score for 1963's Cleopatra. I guess summer is here. I imagine there's a proper one in Egypt, mind you, and all the way up to Rome.

RIP Peter Falk.
