Millions of listeners have thrilled to the film music of John Barry. His scores for the early James Bond movies, and his Oscar-winning music for "Dances With Wolves," "Born Free," "Lion In Winter," and "Out of Africa" are examples of his distinctive, powerful work. John Barry died a week ago, January 30, 2011. In 1992 he joined host David Garland on Spinning On Air for a pair of hour-long shows, speaking eloquently, insightfully, and in-depth about his approach to composing for film. David presents highlights from those conversations, in which John Barry talks about his early group The John Barry Seven, his use of the recording process, and composing music for James Bond.
