Harold Faltermeyer
Tuesday, July 14th, 7pm - 8pm
on Morricone Island with Devon E. Levins

Munich keyboardist and composer Harold Faltermeyer discusses scoring 80s blockbusters "Beverly Hills Cop" (“Axel F”!!), "Top Gun," "Fletch" and "The Running Man," the latter recently reissued by Varese Sarabande. Starting at Deutsche Grammophon (engineering Stockhausen), Giorgio Moroder recruited Faltermeyer to Hollywood as his secret weapon on "Midnight Express," "American Gigolo," "E=MC2" and Donna Summer's "Bad Girls" (writing "Hot Stuff") before scoring his first Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer film "Thief of Hearts." He returns in 2020 to compose for "Top Gun: Maverick."

SONIC BOOM DJ set and interview
Wednesday, July 15th, 3pm - 6pm
Scott Williams's show
Spacemen 3 co-founder Sonic Boom joins Scott on July 15th! Since the breakup of the 3, Sonic has performed as Spectrum and led the project Experimental Audio Research, collaborating with such luminaries as Delia Derbyshire and Kevin Shields. He also produced one of the all-time great compilations Spacelines, as clear a guide to his musical sensibilities as can be hoped for. So it's especially exciting that he'll be preparing a DJ set specially for today's program. Chat at 3:45pm, Sonic Boom DJ set at 4pm.

Friday, July 17th, 3pm - 7pm
Continental Subway with David Dichelle (on Give the Drummer Radio stream)
Live from Leipzig, Germany, Continental Subway host David Dichelle brings you EUROSMASH! four killer hours of dancefloor-fillers from the heart of Europe and beyond!

RIP Johnny Mandel
Tuesday, July 21st, 7pm - 8pm
Morricone Island with Devon E. Levins
Morricone Island pays tribute to jazz trumpeter and trombonist turned composer Johnny Mandel who died at 94 on June 29. Mandel's debut film score for 1958's "I Want To Live!" garnered his first of 17 Grammy nominations before penning "The Shadow of Your Smile" for 1965's "The Sandpiper" and "Suicide Is Painless" for 1970's "M*A*S*H*." Other highlights include "Point Blank," "The Last Detail," "Freaky Friday," "Being There" and "Caddyshack."

Friday, August 14th, 3pm - 7pm
Matt Fiveash's show (on Give the Drummer Radio stream)
Matt Fiveash returns to his beloved broadcast alma mater Give The Drummer Radio to DJ like no one's listening to try and get you to dance like no one's watching. Without hewing to any particular style of music, an attempt will be made to make the ingredients taste good together. Rock and Roll (whatever that is), Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Funk, Disco, Island rhythms, goofy summer oldies, and hopefully some stuff with curse words in it since we will be out from under the iron hand of the FCC. Tune in and shake-a-you boogie through the generously proportioned Friday happy hour!
