17th_annCinematic Sound Radio turns 17 this month so as I do every year (except last year) I make a valiant attempt at coming up with a topic or theme that I have never before explored on the show. For instance, during our 14th anniversary I presented the TOP 14 RE-RECORDINGS OF ALL TIME.  For our 15th anniversary I presented a show dedicated to 15 MINUTE TRACKS.

This year I’m going to play for you some of my favourite end credit cues.  These are by no means the definitive best of the best but I think this show features a fine selection of end credit cues from the most iconic to the more obscure.

So, on this special three hour program you will hear music Alan Silvestri, James Horner, John Debney, John Williams, Joel McNeely, David Shire, David Arnold, Mark Snow and many others.

Special thanks to David Coscina who composed the NEW Cinematic Sound Radio’s fanfare. We have retired the 20th Century Fox fanfare and will now be opening up all programs with Coscina’s new theme. Check out more of his work HERE!

And a big special thanks goes out to film music journalist and historian Jon Burlingame for his invaluable assistance on this show.
