If it’s pouring with rain or blowing up a storm where you are, what better thing to do than enjoy a movie – or in this case, a movie or television soundtrack or two? Well, that’s just what we have for you today.

Along with a few other recent releases, you’ll hear a bunch of favourites, classics and other film and TV music going back to the dawn of the genre. There’s perhaps a slight bias towards SF and F, but it’s only slight. Pick up some popcorn and something wet and fizzy and settle back in the best seat in the house – your own.
