Part of the new schedule but I'm really enjoying this edition of FNIMN from 2017.

Shaken and Stirred - Spies. Loads of film and TV themes including the Third Man of Harry Lime Theme.

Sort of takes me back to Melodies For You and really enjoying it.

I wouldn't be upset if it was moved from Friday nights as I never or only rarely listen then.

Another great episode featuring music from the Movies of the 50s presented by Leo Green first aired in 2016. Loads of music from great movies. Orchestra excellent and at one point I thought I was at a John Wilson Orchestra's concert, probably a Gershwin one. Of course John re wrote the scores from the originals after they were all lost in a fire.

Again, I only heard some of last night's, while pottering about in the kitchen. I think it's so much more suited to Sunday evenings. A rare example of the bods at R2 getting something right.

I feel like writing to someone about it as I'd love it to be a permanent fixture. Don't mind that they are repeats as I've not heard 99% of them before.

Like you I'm pottering in the kitchen as I used to when Melodies for You was on.

If you're fond of TV themes tonight's Sunday Night Is Music Night will be a good listen for you. First aired in 2016 and presented by John Humphreys it's titled '80th Anniversary of Television Service'.

Another must listen tonight, a tribute to Gene Kelly with John Barrowman, Matt Ford and Scarlett Strallen. Lots of Gershwin and overtures but I thoroughly enjoyed it as I pottered around the kitchen!

Will record it later to listen again, whenever.
