In the words of Moby Grape… listen, my friends! Yes, it’s the (hopefully) monthly playlist presented by George’s Journal just for you good people.

There may be one or two classics to be found here dotted in among different tunes you’re unfamiliar with or have never heard before – or, of course, you may’ve heard them all before. All the same, why not sit back, listen away and enjoy…

² Martin Scorsese’s classic, scorching, Robert De Niro-starring, urban decay thriller Taxi Driver celebrates its 40th anniversary this year; the score was the last the great movie maestro Hermann wrote – its recording concluded just a day before he died on Christmas Eve 1975
