MPR’s classical hosts head to the movies

Okay, those folks over at MPR Classical are having more fun than should be legal.

A while back I wrote about how Emily Reese is interviewing composers who create scores for video games, in a series called "Top Score." The show brings together two Reese's great loves - classical music, and gaming.

Now hosts Bill Morelock and Lynn Warfel are indulging their love of movies with a new show called "Roll Credits."


Bill Morelock and Lynn Warfel, hosts of Roll Credits. Oh wait, that's Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh...

Knowing Morelock and Warfel, the show will be a witty and entertaining exploration of some of the most memorable movies in history, and the music that helped make them so.

Tonight at 8pm the show gets underway by looking at some of the films of 1939: Gone With the Wind, Stagecoach, Wuthering Heights, Of Mice and Men, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, and The Wizard of Oz.
