The Hit Songs of 1968

G ManThird in a series of shows about hit songs off the radio in the sixties. KIOA 940 AM in Des Moines had a weekly and yearly count about 45 RPM records. This show recreates most of those songs- I got 38 of the 49 into the mix. The Beatles have three songs, The Rascals and Simon & Garfunkel have two apiece, and the whole thing sounds like the hit parade from a time gone by. Hope you enjoy the show. The G Man

The first hour offers choice tracks frocary brothersm Richard Thompson's new CD, from jazz singer Melody Gardot singing roots spirituals, and Broken Bells.

picWith a heavy and saddened heart the world has lost James Horner, one of the most subtle, stirring and astonishingly prolific Film Music composers. Flying solo in his small plane crashed just north of Santa Barbara on June 22. He was only 61. A kind, gentle and sweet man who made movies come alive through over 100 scores. I highlight a handful of his music most of us will never forget.

"Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan", "a score and a movie that stands as a highpoint in science fiction, bold writing that would blast Horner off to become one of the dominant musical forces in Hollywood." "Apollo 13", easily among the best scores of the 1990's. Horner's "Legends of the Fall" has it all, great themes, intimate romance, epic drama and tragedy. "Casper", Horner unleashes through this pure creative originality and charm. Scoring "Avatar" was Horner's most difficult job to a gamechanging film. Next, few superhero scores of the 2000's and 2010's are allowed to be so expressive and genuinely heartfelt as "The Amazing Spider-Man." "The Rocketeer" reveals how Horner incorporates rich instrumentals in the tiniest crevices. And "Titanic" is one of the defining moments in modern film scoring as the movie was a towering achievement in 1997 and still is today. And More Wed July 1, 3-4pm. My Ultra Lounge show precedes at 2pm.
