Options January 22, 2019: DAVID SCHECTER of Monstrous Movie Music (Pt. 2)
Monstrous Movie Music is a CD label specializing in previously unavailable 1940s-1970s film music of the finest composers working that era even though most are virtually unknown. MMM's initial releases were "re-recordings" faithfully restored and orchestrated by the label's co-founder Kathleen Mayne, before eventually releasing original soundtracks as well, all with striking covers painted by horror artist Robert Aragon and science fiction illustrator Vincent DiFate and meticulously researched liner notes by owner David Schecter who discusses the label's history for a second week. Please revisit Pt. 1 from 1/15/2019.

have you played it on air, Rich?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/22/19 7:15pm Richard S:

The Blob should be in the National Film Registry for so many good reasons, especially because it is emblematic of its genre.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/22/19 7:15pm Rich in Washington:

I think so. Years ago, maybe when I first found it. I should dig it up and give it a spin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/22/19 7:15pm Linda Lee:

'The Monster Show' posits that the image of huge brains w/ eyes correlates to the then new media of TV & it's impact on culture & psychology in the I suppose Marshall McLuhan sense...

Rev ~ makes sense!
Avatar Tue. 1/22/19 7:18pm ultradamno:

I like the eyes. He's an exasperated brain.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/22/19 7:18pm Linda Lee:

do you guys realize how conventional the expectation is that women use their bodies as currency? not just some .. all of them.

Yerknow - why certain Images - When.
  Tue. 1/22/19 7:19pm Listener Robert:

Now, see, I would've been one of those thinking OF COURSE it'd have to have the Bacharach. Doesn't matter how it's supposed to "fit in".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/22/19 7:20pm Linda Lee:

well sure! the visually oriented sensability. absolutely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/22/19 7:21pm Linda Lee:

it's because we're a visually oriented *species* that visuals reflect the zeitgeist. defo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/22/19 7:24pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Mom deffo lost the battle to not sit so close to the screens...
I was defending George Martin's Yellow Submarine music w/ Beatlepersons...I think some people still haven't picked up on Soundtrack as a Genre - even as Pop has looong been accepted as Classic as a Truism...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/22/19 7:24pm Richard S:

Comedies, horror, and sci-fi rarely get noticed for the major awards by the Oscars
Avatar Tue. 1/22/19 7:26pm dale:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/22/19 7:51pm Richard S:

So years ago, I was in a 'gentleman's club' enjoying the entertainment when two young ladies sat down next to me. "We're lesbians," they said. "We have something in common, then," I (should have) said.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/22/19 7:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Creature is the favorite of the guy who does MpnsterKidRadio.
He keeps talking about doing an episode on Music - but I think it's a daunting task...

Really enjoyed this show

I like the Vestal Virgin Toga Thing.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/22/19 7:55pm Linda Lee:

@RichardS ~ i find it funny that they'd make an announcement :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/22/19 7:55pm Linda Lee:

Rev, if we're not constrained by our sponsors as to what we do, why the heck not?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/22/19 7:56pm Richard S:

Fine show, great interview, and CHECK OUT THOSE MOVIES, AND PAY ATTENTION TO THE MUSIC!!
