If my friends could see me now! Aedín features Shirley MacLaine's signature song from her performance live at the Palace Theatre in New York. She also checks out the current London cast recording of Irish playwright Conor McPherson’s show 'Girl from the North Country', which uses the songs of Bob Dylan. Favourite soundtracks too from Back to the Future, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Now Voyager.
Yes, it’s Aedín’s annual look at films we just look forward to seeing at this time of year. From Willy Wonka to The Wizard of Oz , from It’s a Wonderful Life to White Christmas, not to mention Elf and E.T. Plus great music from animated features Toy Story, Up and How the Grinch Who Stole Christmas. Garret Daly will be along too, with a special movie news including last minute film-themed Christmas presents.
You can listen again here to Aedín's interviews with composer Michael Giacchino, Dame Julie Andrews, Dame Angela Lansbery and composer, writer and actor Lin-Manuel Miranda, responsible for the Broadway smash-hit musical Hamilton and the songs of Moana. (Photo c\o Simon Lazewski, Foto Farm)
