THE SUNDANCE KID...arrives in Houston on March 27th, the same day as the beginning of Houston Public Radio's spring fundraising campaign. (Coincidence? I think not.) Robert Redford does support public broadcasting. The popular star and Oscar-winning director is also a supporter of a clean environment for all of us. He'll introduce Fighting Goliath: The Texas Coal Wars, a new documentary on the Texas coal industry, at the Wortham Center. Redford narrates; I've already seen the film, and it's hard-hitting! (More information at ProgressiveForumHouston.org.) We'll hear music from some of Mr. Redford's famous films on this week's show, such as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting, The Way We Were, Out of Africa, and many more. Don't forget to call in during this week's program with your financial support of Music From The Movies. The phone number, as always, is 713-743-5843.
UPCOMING SHOWS...Oscar-winning actress Bette Davis has her centenary (April 5, 1908). We remember the late director Anthony Minghella (The English Patient, Cold Mountain, The Talented Mr. Ripley).
