In this episode, I talk about and present examples of the music of Bernard Herrmann, a legendary, enigmatic and trend-setting figure in film scores, specifically as the Golden Age of Hollywood began to wane and transition into broader styles and textures. I titled this "Listening To..." and plan to revisit this topic with various composers, whether to present attributes of their overall style or focus on particular genres or even a certain year of their career. This is not a comprehensive biography of the man or his entire career, but more of a brief introduction for anyone who might be curious to learn about what to listen for, in scores such as CITIZEN KANE, VERTIGO, JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS and TAXI DRIVER.

In this episode, I continue my conversation with classic soundtrack editor and producer, Neil Bulk. Some of the topics discussed include his beginnings as a soundtrack fan and collector, re-recordings of movie music, fan demands when it comes to album releases from the niche labels and at the end, Neil tries to get me to actually narrow down my favorite scores.
