Big thanks to our podcast listeners in this episode, who made suggestions for the best film soundtrack albums ever, and helped us with the question “Is the second-last track on an album the weakest?” No spoilers here: for the answer, and to see if you got a mention, you’ll have to listen in! You’ll also discover ElTele’s “campest film theme of all time”.
Popular culture lost so many stars this month: we say goodbye to Olivia Newton John, Bernard Cribbins, Raymond Briggs, David Warner, Nichelle Nichols, Darryl Hunt of the Pogues and ace Motown tunesmith Lamont Dozier (see a playlist of his tunes below).
The Captain finishes off Riccardino, the final Inspector Montalbano novel, tells the odd tale of its publication, and also gives a positive mention to British crime drama Sherwood, chock full of acting talent. ElTele has discovered Along for the Ride, with comedian David O’Doherty.
