Linking in rather nicely with the soundtrack series- we have a lovely little selection from WIRESHAKER………

Roxy (or Plaza, or Essoldo, or Odeon etc) Music
With the Oscars looming, what better time than to take a trip to the movies. And as the Drifters pointed out, who cares what picture you see, (as long as there’s a cool tune involved somewhere during the proceedings)?
Afraid you’ll have to bring your own popcorn & Ki-ora, there ain’t no girl with a tray to come your way.
