The Music and The Movies

THE MUSIC AND THE MOVIES is a program that looks at – and listens to – the sweet spot where music and movies intersect. In this hour we ponder the special alchemy that happens when sound meets image, where music lovers and cinephiles come together. We explore a different theme in each episode, arranged around an idea or a person, and we delve into why some of our favorite movie moments are also musical ones. The show airs at 7 p.m. Sunday nights.
