EPIC GOLDSMITH RADIO CELEBRATION!
Varèse Sarabande Records and Sirius/XM’s Cinemagic launch a weeklong, 80th birthday celebration remembering and honoring the life and work of one of Hollywood’s greatest film composers of all time …Jerry Goldsmith.
Special guest host Robert Townson, who worked extensively with Goldsmith on 80 of his albums, will guide listeners on an extensive tour of the legendary composer’s extraordinary and enormous career. From such classics as Patton, The Omen, Star Trek and Chinatown to some obscure gems that will be a discovery for almost everybody, over 130 scores will be featured over the course of five, daily five and six-hour shows.
Beginning on Monday, February 9 at 4:00 pm EST/1:00 pm PST this very special celebration will continue each day at the same time. As a grand finale, all five programs will be run consecutively, all weekend long, beginning Saturday, February 14 at 12:01am EST.
Tuesday, February 10 would have been Jerry Goldsmith’s 80th birthday. Join us all week long to remember in music one of the greatest composers to ever write for film.
