Description
20121115Another chance to hear Paul Sexton's 2001 interview with John Barry. The English composer, who died early last year, talks about his 007 years and a distinguished life in music.
Barry describes how he literally grew up in the cinema (with his father owning a chain of movie houses); as well as classic scores such as Seance On A Wet Afternoon and Born Free.
He also remembers the rock 'n' roll era of the John Barry Seven, when one reviewer described him as sounding like a 78 being played at 33 and a third; and he reminisces about some of his favourite Bond scores.
Presenter/Paul Sexton, Producer/Sam Gregory.
