Film Score Focus on KMFA

Every Friday night at 10pm on KMFA (89.5 on your FM dial), Stephen Aechternacht routinely wows film fans and casual listeners alike with his voluminous knowledge of film scores and the crafty ways he presents them. Themed shows on various directors, film genres, and, yes, cottage-industry composer Danny Elfman, segue in and out of one another and recall the best moments from the most memorable films, or, occasionally, the best moments from some of the most forgettable turkeys ever. You may have hated the film, but you'll dig Aechternacht's obvious love of his subject and his classy, utterly unique show.
