I have been thinking of trying to do this for a very long time.
Provide a Rock & Roll Soundtrack to the much loved and immensely popular movie- particularly at this time of year- "It's A Wonderful Life".
Soundtracks albums are very important and profitable to Movies nowadays.
That was not the case in 1946 when this Movie came out.
Music was only important as a plot device...to move the flick along with an orchestra for dramatic or lighthearted effect.
And besides, who would buy an album of music from a flop?
That was the case with It's A Wonderful Life- it lost at least a half million dollars, huge bucks back then.
Well, it all changes right now, right here!
Over the years, I have talked to just a handful of people about attempting this.
I thank them for their help and suggestions, with the biggest thanks going to Pete Fornatale of WFUV...I nicked a few ideas from him, lol!
I have never said this about a show before, but this may be something you will never forget!
The house lights are dimming, the curtain is rising.
So I invite you to join me for the opening half of some good old Black & White Radio!
Here's the link to a movie that I hope, like me, is a wonderful part of your own life, at WLSO.FM:
