Omen II

Moderately famous Scotswoman praises John Williams

Recommended Posts

I believe she was a Radio One DJ at one time, so she's always been one of those more pop oriented TV personalities here, I think she even hosted Top of the Pops. 

 

Respect for Bowman just went up by the power of ten after this tho.

This morning Edith Bowman was the celebrity guest on Saturday Kitchen Live (a BBC TV cookery programme).  She mentioned her love of John Williams again and that she e-mails his people at least a couple of times a week asking for the chance to interview him, adding that she would get on a plane straight away even if she could see him for only twenty minutes.

 

:up:

Ah 20 minutes instead of 10 now. Getting ambitious.

 

I picked up a copy of the free Metro newspaper on my way to work on Friday (not many others doing likewise - can't think why) and it looks like she is now angling for a 30 minute slot with old Johnny!

I have a massive wish list and top of that is Mr John Williams — he soundtracked my childhood. There’s not a week that goes by when I don’t email his team and say hi. Before lockdown I was like, ‘I’m going to jump on a plane [to the USA] this afternoon’ if it means I’m going to get half an hour with him. I would drop everything to have some time with John, he’s the reason why I connect with music and film — your ETs, your Star Wars, all those things.

E.T.2: It Lives Again went straight to video back in the day.  In fairness, Williams’s score for the sequel was largely forgettable (the inspired scoring for the lengthy orgy sequence notwithstanding).
