Woody Allen made the perfect choice using the music of George Gershwin for his film Manhattan, the music seems to perfectly conjure up images of the Big Apple.

Saturday June 23rd

Ian McGlynn presents this week, and includes some of his favourite soundtracks from stage and screen. 

Saturday June 30th

For the first time in history in 2015, an all-women creative team won the Tony Award for Best Original Score in a Musical, Jeanine Tesori and Lisa Kron for their musical, Fun Home. Around the same time on Broadway two other musicals written by female composers and lyricists enjoyed great success; Waitress with music and lyrics by Sara Bareilles and The Color Purple whose song-writing team included Brenda Russell and Allee Willis. Aedín includes songs from these musicals this afternoon as well as a selection of films scored by female composers; Debbie Wiseman (Wilde), Lesley Barber (Manchester by the Sea), Anne Dudley (Elle) and Rachel Portman (Emma).
