Originally aired on the occasion of the 2007 Academy Awards, this edition of the Fishko recognizes celebrated film composer Ennio Morricone, who received a special Oscar that year. Many of the composer's early scores for westerns used whistling to great effect. And as WNYC's Sara Fishko tells us, the world of 'instrumental whistling' has it's own story.
