Summer is here and there are many promising movies headed our way during the warm months of 2022 to justify staying indoors for extended periods. Host Edmund Stone will take us to the theaters virtually, as we enjoy music of the movies.

8/6 Private Eyes This week Edmund Stone is digging into some skullduggery and peering into the world of Private Investigators in a show all about Private Eyes. Match wits with Hercule Poirot in Death on the Nile, uncover family secrets with the Gentleman Detective in Knives Out, and get gritty with Sam Spade in The Maltese Falcon.

8/13 Out of this World Epics This week Edmund takes you on an out of this world journey with space epics. Travel the galaxy with bold adventurers battling impossible odds in The Martian, Star Wars: The Rise of Sky Walker, Guardians of the Galaxy, Dune and more.

8/20 The Hero's Journey This week Edmund shares music of films that tell and retell the most popular story of all - the Hero's Journey, with examples from Jason and the Argonauts, The Huger Games, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, and more.

8/27 2022 Summer Blockbusters After two years of blockbuster malaise the theatres are open again and movie fans are breathing a collective sigh of relief. This week Edmund Stone presents music to some of the best of this year's summer offerings, including Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Top Gun: Maverick, Jurassic World Dominion, and more.
