Though many of us think of the James Bond movies for its gadgets, thrills and beautiful women, the music of each film has always played an important role in the success of the James Bond franchise while also setting trends in the composition of other film scores. Not only that, the backstories behind each Bond soundtrack are almost as compelling as 007’s adventures itself, including a lawsuit over the authorship of the iconic “James Bond theme,” the controversy over the lyrics to “Diamonds are Forever,” how Frank Sinatra almost sang the title song to Moonraker, and how producer Harry Saltzman wanted someone other than Paul McCartney to sing “Live and Let Die.”

These stories and more are captured in the pages of The Music of James Bond, an excellent book by renowned film and TV music historian Jon Burlingame. Jon’s book features a running commentary on the various scores of each Bond soundtrack, plus extensive interviews with virtually every major composer and recording artist who has contributed to the pantheon of Bond music, including John Barry, Monty Norman, Marvin Hamlisch, Paul Williams, Herb Alpert, and Hal David.

We’ll not only talk about the music of James Bond, but play highlights from the music of James Bond, when Jon Burlingame will joins us in our first hour.

Joining us in our second hour will be Jane Boursaw as we pay tribute to Roger Ebert, the Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times and longtime co-host of Sneak Previews, Siskel & Ebert, and Ebert & Roeper. A syndicated columnist and entertainment writer for such publications as TV Worth Watching and Reel Life with Jane, Jane Boursaw is also one of many film critics who was influenced by Roger Ebert.

Also this week: We will replay our conversation from October 2010 with actor Frank Bank, Lumpy Rutherford on Leave It to Beaver, and talk show host Stu Shostak. Plus: a brand new edition of This Week in TV History.
