This particular radio show on poplie was dedicated to Thessaloniki's 50th International Film Festival, ending today. All the songs featured are used in film soundtracks, either written originally for them or not. Anthony Warlow's version of "The Music Of The Night" from The Phantom Of The Opera is included instead of the film score's Gerard Butler's version as I consider it the best ever recorded. Also the Massive Attack "Safe From Harm" track was featured on The Insider OST in the Perfecto Mix version (the one played on the show is the album original one).

Last Sunday's radio show at Poplie is ready for download for all of you who missed the live one - just check the link on the right side of the blog. And I hope you like this week's background image for the playlist (click on it to see it bigger). Since 2006, NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has been orbiting Mars, currently circling approximately 300 km (187 mi) above the Martian surface. On board the MRO is HiRISE, the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment camera, which has been photographing the planet for several years now at resolutions as fine as mere inches per pixel. Photo shows Victoria Crater at Meridiani Planum.

Special show today as it is my name day celebration! Featuring voices that I love listening to, most of the singers heard today on the show have played a major part in shaping my early musical influences. From the breathy, ethereal voice of Olivia Newton-John to the raspy voice of Kim Carnes, through jazz-influenced Joni Mitchell and Rickie Lee- Jones to exotic Kate Bush, women's voices are dominating the playlist. You can download the show from the right side of this blog. I hope you enjoy it! Background photo by Irving Penn.

The first show for November had the first hour seemingly in business as usual mode, but he second hour was filled with atmospheric songs, ethereal voices and a magnificent piano ending courtesy of Philip Glass; although the piece is from 1988, I first heard it on the Battlestar Galactica series, hence the background photo. If you click on it, you can see the playlist . Hope you enjoy the show, which can be downloaded from the right column of this blog.
