Saturday May 19th

Classic movie music this afternoon from two Hitchcock films starring James Stewart; Vertigo and Rear Window. Aedín also remembers American writer and filmmaker Nora Ephron, the woman  behind such hit films as Sleepless in Seattle, When Harry Met Sally and Julie and Julia. Favourite songs too from 42nd St, Oklahoma, Gosford Park and Chicago. 

Saturday May 26th

What do the films Mamma Mia, Wall- E and The Reader all have in common? They were all released 10 years ago, and Aedín remembers all three this afternoon. Plus three scores by Alex North, from Cleopatra, The Misfits and A Streetcar Named Desire. And our singers include Lin-Manuel Miranda, Marilyn Monroe, Barbara Streisand, Chris Pine and Gene Kelly.
