James Bond Radio: 007 News, Reviews & Interviews!

No JBR this week. We'll actually be taking a break through the rest of March due to a spot of travel and a couple of secret missions from MI6. To keep you going in the meantime we'll drop a little nugget of fun in your podcast feed every Friday until our return. We can't have you missing us too much, can we? 

This week, join Tom at the piano as he learns how to play Live & Let Die, recorded back in the heady days of 2015, the weekend before SPECTRE was released. 

See you in April when JBR returns with a kiss kiss bang bang!

The Music of Bond is back...with From Russia With Love!

Warren and John return for the second soundtrack review and the focus shifts mainly to Turkey for John Barry's first 007 instalment. Undoubtedly a fantastic score from the maestro, but where does it rank in the series? Is it no.1? Is Barry finding the right formula in this film? Is that a load of tosh? Tune in and make up your own mind!...

No JBR this week! Sadly, Chris still hasn't returned from his mission abroad. The last we heard he was climbing into an iceberg submarine with a buxom beauty somewhere off the coast of eastern Europe.

Instead, James Bond Radio makes the trip to Hong Kong to check out 2 locations from The Man With The Golden Gun: The Peninsula Hotel and what's left of The Bottoms Up Club.

We will release the next podcast as soon as Chris returns. ETA: Next week as usual.

Today on The Music Of Bond the team delve into 1962's Dr. No score by Monty Norman.

The earliest film in the series, and the weirdest Soundtrack Album to date (only 7 of the tracks actually appear in the film!) so there is much to discuss and delve into.

From Mango Tree to 3 Blind Mice to Bond singing to Bleeps and Bloops in the Gun Barrel: as you have come to expect, everything is covered...

It's time to turn the microphone over to the JBR listeners to hear their thoughts on Sir Roger's final turn as Bond: A View To A Kill. Will it be a landslide of love? Will it be a hurricane of hate? Will it be a meadow of middle-ness? The only way to find out is nay tuning in to this week's JBR.

We also talk about the future of James Bond Radio, Bond 25, Naomie Harris in the Honours List and a lot more.
