John Barry on R2 Friday Night Is Music Night

Saturday, 15 September 2012 14:25

Very nice 2001 interview with John Barry on BBC Radio 2 Friday Night Is Music Night. It included him speaking with great affection of his time before 1962 when he was with the John Barry Seven, arranging for Adam Faith and playing at the Rialto. Worth catching on BBC Iplayer if you missed it. The interview is around the half way point in the programme.

I enjoyed the Bond & Beyond concert on BBC Radio 2 on Friday night, though I actually watched it on BBC's red button facility. A few errors by the presenters and caption-writers, but the performance by the BBC Philharmonic was mostly excellent. Some of the non-Bond music was not really from Spy movies, but I was pleased to hear North by Northwest & Where Eagles Dare anyway. Claire Moore & Lance Ellington did some decent versions of Bond songs but I thought the sound balance was wrong for Ren Harvieu.
