Author Howard Bloom & Gary U.S. Bonds Up Next on THE SOUNDS OF FILM


Gary U.S. Bonds had his first smash hit in 1960 with the relentless pounder "New Orleans.”

The follow-up was the now legendary 'party' record, "Quarter to Three," a number one hit with a spirit and energy that would eventually inspire and influence a generation. In fact, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame lists "Quarter to Three" as one of the 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.
Over the next three years, Gary co-wrote and recorded hit after good-time hit; "School is Out," "School is In," "Dear Lady Twist," "Twist, Twist Senora," "Seven Day Weekend" and others. He performed throughout the world, rising to a status so high that on a 1963 tour of Europe, he headlined above a group of relative newcomers... The Beatles.


Airs Thursday, March 2, from 6-8 PM.

MIXED TAPE TRILOGY Director Up Next on Tom Needham's SOUNDS OF FILM

Director Kathleen Ermitage Talks MIXTAPE TRILOGY on Tom Needham's SOUNDS OF FILM

Mixtape Trilogy: Stories of the Power of Music explores one of the most intense and unique relationships between people who rarely meet: music artists and their fans. Folk-rock icons The Indigo Girls openly share their journey, which has powerfully influenced the life of their biggest fan. Composer and pianist Vijay Iyer examines issues of immigration and race through his music; his work touches the heart of Garnette, a “man of the streets” from Kingston, Jamaica. Rapper and activist Talib Kweli inspires and transforms the life of Mike, a “Hip Hop” architect from Detroit. The director unpacks the music, inviting the audience to fall into it. The art of listening unfolds and inspires us to listen to music and, perhaps, each other in new ways.


Airs Thursday, February 16, 6-8 PM.
