Film Music Fridays

Film Music Friday - July 9, 2021 (Michael Giacchino)

Michael Giacchino is among the most successful film composers working today. He's contributed music to several popular film franchises, including the Mission: Impossible and Jurassic World series, the Star Trek reboot and Marvel films, plus he's become the go-to composer for Pixar films, scoring such box office hits as Up (for which he won an Oscar), Ratatouille and The Incredibles. On this week's Film Music Friday we'll sample some of Giacchino's greatest hits.

Film Music Friday - July 2, 2021 (When Good Music Happens to Bad Movies)

This week on Film Music Friday...when good music happens to bad movies. Sometimes a great score is the only thing to recommend in really lousy movies, and we'll hear some examples, including themes from King Solomon's Mines, Meet Joe Black, Red Sonja, Judge Dredd and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

Film Music Friday - June 11, 2021 (Max Steiner)

Austrian-born composer Max Steiner moved to Hollywood in 1929 and became one of the first composers to write music scores for films. He's often referred to as "the father of film music." On this week's Film Music Friday, it's an encore broadcast of our tribute to Max Steiner, with excerpts from his scores for King Kong, Gone with the Wind, Adventures of Don Juan, Casablanca and many more.

Film Music Friday - June 4, 2021 (John Wayne)

This week on KPR's Film Music Friday we'll be hearing music from the films of John Wayne. In a career that stretched from the silent era into the 1970s, the Duke was arguably the biggest movie star of the 20th century. We'll hear music from films like The Searchers, Stagecoach, True Grit, The Quiet Man, Big Jake, The Cowboys and more.
