    Trumpeteer got a reaction from Ricard in New Podcast! The Baton: A John Williams Musical Journey   
    The newest episode of my podcast features the score to 1971's "Jane Eyre," the third and final time Delbert Mann and John Williams would work together. This episode features fellow JWFan member @Yavar Moradi as he talks about why he counts "Jane Eyre" as his favorite John Williams score. We also have a good discussion about whether to count the main theme as a love theme or not, and the music it inspired about 30 years later. Hope you enjoy!

    Trumpeteer got a reaction from Oskar in Has anyone here heard 'Storia Di Una Donna' (1970)?   
    I just finished watching this film for an upcoming episode of my podcast. It is not a great film by any means, but that six minutes of music near the end that everyone has talked about is worth sitting through the movie.
     
    I am co-hosting the episode with Townerfan's brother Gianmaria. We are going to have a fun discussion. And thanks Mauricio for the background info on the film!

    Just before I had read that comment a few days ago, I had finished watching "Valley of the Dolls" and was very excited to record that episode. After reading your comment, my feelings about doing that episode -- and the podcast -- hadn't changed. Your apology is accepted but I just wanted you to know that I didn't allow it to affect me negatively -- unlike the way Bernard Herrmann's comments about Symphony No. 1 affected John Williams.

    I don't mind if you don't like the podcast, but please let me know what errors you have heard. I might be using a source of information that is not as reliable as it seems, or I might have connected dots that were not meant to be connected. It might help improve the show, and you might like what you hear.
     
    And, if you are a "hardcore Williams researcher," perhaps you can guide me to information in places I do not know. You can reply here or send me an email to jeffswim@aol.com.

    You bring up an interesting point. I wasn't mentioning the next film because I wanted to "tease" the next episode. But, I can start doing that in upcoming episodes. Thanks for listening!

    Happy New Year to my fellow JWFan members! I am embarking on a new venture that I know will appeal to all of you.
    I am the host of the podcast “The Baton: A John Williams Musical Journey.” The podcast is devoted to John Williams’ music career, from his first film in 1959 to the present. It’s a podcast unlike any of the others out there. Each episode will be devoted to one movie in Williams’ lengthy career, 107 films and counting. Think of it as a biography of John Williams, told through his music.
    You can hear the first three episodes now at this link I've embedded the player for the first episode below as well. Episode 1 sets up the premise of the podcast and details John Williams’ life before he tackled his first film score. Episode 2 officially starts the journey through his career with a listen to Williams’ score for his debut film “Daddy-O.” Episode 3 analyzes the score for his second film “I Passed For White.”
    This podcast will examine Williams’ career in chronological order. This way, you’ll appreciate the journey toward the scores that made him famous. New episodes will be available each Wednesday. The podcast will appear on iTunes in a few days.
    Though I hope my podcast appeals to the general public, I’m extremely interested to know what John Williams fans think of it. You can post comments here in the forums or on the podcast’s website. You can also send me an email at jeffswim@aol.com if you don’t want to comment publicly.
    Thanks for listening!

    Trumpeteer got a reaction from Falstaft in Do you own "Valley of the Dolls"? How would you rate it?   
    I have just watched this film in preparation for an upcoming episode of my podcast and after just a bit of research, all the music that is not part of the five original songs was composed by John Williams. He wrote some fairly good cues, some of which uses Previn's song melodies but is flavored with the Williams touch.
     
    The fact that he didn't really have to lean heavily on song melodies for his underscore might have helped him nab his first Oscar nomination. The episode highlighting "Valley of the Dolls" on my podcast will be ready for listening on April 17.

    Trumpeteer got a reaction from Yavar Moradi in Roger from Intrada announces a Williams title is coming "in the next several months"   
    Some of those very early scores have so little music in them. Two of them could be combined for one album, I suppose.
     
    I would like to see a "Daddy-O/Because They're Young" album, since they are both about young adults.
