Reel Music gets involved in the inaugural IFMCA Radio broadcast


The IFMCA is proud to announce the launch of IFMCA RADIO. The first show celebrates the music nominated for the 2012 IFMCA Awards. A number of members were asked to introduce a few tracks from nominated scores that they felt were particularly worthy of being highlighted. The couple of cues that I chose to be included in the show are from scores nominated in the “Best Original Score For A Television Series” category: “The Fallen” from John Lunn’s DOWNTON ABBEY and “I Am The Doctor In Utah” taken from Murray Gold’s score for Series 6 of DOCTOR WHO.

Please take a listen to the show at the IFMCA website. Below is the IFMCA announcement of the first show of IFMCA Radio. Enjoy!
