Composer Bernard Herrmann 106th birthday was the 29th. Hope they have some decent French horn players in Heaven for you.
Here's about an hour of some of his best!
Also: here's a rare radio program from 1936: The Columbia Workshop's Rhythm of the Jute Mill. A twenty-something Herrmann composed a score AND a mini-symphony for this bizarre tale of a crazed composer jailed for murder who starts a prison orchestra.
If you're a fan of Old Time Radio and your not familiar with the original 1930s series The Columbia Workshop do yourself a favor and look for episodes of the intelligent, innovative, and often outrageous series. Herrmann scored a bunch of them.
