James Bond Radio: 007 News, Reviews & Interviews!

This week we take a look at the scores of Bond. We're going to look at the work of every composer from Dr. No to Moonraker, including John Barry, Monty Norman, George Martin and Marvin Hamlisch. We'll be saving the songs of Bond for another episode. This is all about the orchestral score.  

This is an epic 2.5 hour episode (our longest yet), so be sure to crank up the volume, kick back and enjoy!

We'll be back next week with our review of On Her Majesty's Secret Service!
