FilmEar Episode 25: Mother Knows Best

On a very special episode I invite my Mom on the podcast, Barbara Murphy, and we chat about how her musical influences and the music she played around the house rubbed off on me – from Stravinsky and George Gershwin’s Rhapsody In Blue to musicals like South Pacific.  We also talk about her early love of instrumentals like Booker T’s Green Onions and rockers like Roy Orbison to Jazz music.  Her love of movies and movie music was also diverse, ranging from John Williams Jurassic Park to comedies like Clue and the pop filled score to Guardians of the Galaxy.  In TV, we talk Hit Parade to Colombo, The Voice to Perry Mason and everything in between.  We even talk a little recent Star Wars as well as some of her favories now, like Hamilton and Haley Reinhart – All of this with music examples, so sit back and stick it in your ear with my Mom!
