This week Chris talks to special guest Rich Zakka on the show. Rich is the grandson of actor Timothy Moxon who you will all know as Commander John Strangways from Dr. No. We hear about his service during World War 2, life during Jamaica's jet set hey day of the late 50s and of course hear all about his role in the very first James Bond film.

You know what time it is... it's time to hear your thoughts and feelings on the eighties film that's wrapped in tentacles... Sir Roger's penultimate 007 adventure... Octopussy!!

Is it the perfect Sunday afternoon Bond or is it a joke too far? Is Sir Rog firing on all cylinders or should he have hung up his holster long ago? Is it a mission draped in action, adventure, charm and humour or is it just a secret agent in fancy dress? Why not kick back, slap the headphones on and listen to the most important people on the planet have their say... Bond fans of the world, we salute you!

[Reviews begin at: 28:28]

It’s time to get your Octopussy on as JBR reviews part II of Sir Rog’s penultimate 007 adventure! So how does this 80s thriller hold up? Is it all gorilla suits and clown suits or does Bond hold his own against a mad General and a man who might truly be crowned as the Goldenvoiced Prince… “Octopussy… Octopussy.”

We also discuss the latest from the Bond comic book world and have some electrifying news about Q the Music’s upcoming show in November!

Sit back, relax and hopefully you won’t have any problems keeping it up!

This week we're concluding our James Bond theme songs coverage with the help of seasoned Bond music professional; Warren Ringham.

As the band leader of the super popular Bond tribute show Q The Music, Warren has a very close relationship with the songs of Bond. Having performed them night after night for years his insight into the inner workings of the songs is truly fascinating. As the band of choice for September's Bond stars event at Pinewood, Q The Music will be performing to the who's who of Bond royalty even Bond music heavyweights Monty Norman and Don Black!

You'll be hearing the songs of Bond in an entirely new way after listening to this week's podcast. 

Don't forget to check out qthemusicshow.com for more info about the band and be sure to grab tickets to their show at The Harlington in Fleet on November 27th.

This week we're back with our first look at the songs of Bond. Starting off with Dr. No, through to Sheena Easton's, For Your Eyes Only.
 Be warned, Tom and Chris get a little too passionate during this episode. If the sound of two grown men dry humping each other to the sound of On Her Majesty's Secret Service might offend you, then it's probably best to skip this one.

PLUS: Operation Kid Brother, Daniel Craig quits in the news, Thrilling Cities, JBR in Philadelphia & Chicago and more.

Song reviews begin at: 36:46.
