"Strings and brass are the real stars of Elfman’s “Dark Shadows,” which cry, scream, and cackle through the album like a strategic blend of musical expression and sound design."
Also, selections from Elfman's "Men in Black 3" score holds up fairly well to his previous 2 installments along with selections from Alan Silvestri's "The Avengers"; James Horner takes us "Back to Titanic" as his score remains as romantic, magical and as instantly recognizable as ever. Also featured is Lucas Vidal's haunting score "The Raven".

"America's oldest teenager" has died at the age of 82. Dick Clark, a savvy television entrepreneur who hosted the famed American Bandstand show for 30 years 1957-87, produced and created the American Music Awards, Game shows, comedy specials, children’s and reality programming, will not soon be forgotton.
Although I never quite felt the same good feeling about him due to his rude and negative interchange with Michael Moore in Bowling for Columbine, all aside, Mr. Clark's influence on Rock n' Roll was immense introducing us to upcoming music legends from James Brown onward. Growing up I always felt good seeing him on TV with his warm personality and that was special enough.
This week I'll play a handful of tunes by artists made famous on American Bandstand as well as the some time honored Crime Themed mood music and more. Wed April 25th 2-3 pm.
