On this year’s belated Halloween special we’ll be featuring some spooky scores from a variety of horror films ranging from classic 1950’s B-movie madness to modern-day low budget fare!
You’ll first hear selections from a film called THE VISAGE from a new album called THE JOHN MORGAN COLLECTION VOLUME 1. You’ll hear another selection from that album from a 1996 anthology horror spoof film called THE MACABRE PAIR OF SHORTS. You’ll hear John Morgan and William Stromberg’s music from THE LEGEND OF SEYMOUR HACKELL.
We’ll then feature two lengthy suites starting with Christopher Young ’s score to BLESS THE CHILD released in 2000 and a re-recording of Stanley Black’s score to the 1958 film BLOOD OF THE VAMPIRE.
We’ll end the program off with selections from two Chuck Cirino scores – 967-EVIL II: THE ASTRAL FACTOR and EVIL TOONS.
Special thanks to Ford A. Thaxton at Dragon’s Domain Records for his invaluable assistance and support in making today’s show possible.
Cinematic Sound Radio’s series of film, TV and video game composer interviews continues as Jason Drury chats with recording engineer legend, Bruce Botnick.
In August 2019, Jason Drury talked to Bruce Botnick via Skype at his home in Los Angeles.
In the first of a three-part interview, Botnick talks about how he got into the music industry, his work with some of the major bands of the 60s and 70s, his first meeting with Jerry Goldsmith and working with John Williams on two of his iconic scores, E.T.: THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL and INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM.
