FILM CLASSICS | 5/8 at 6pm with Jack Goggin
This year marks the 400th anniversary of the passing of William Shakespeare—as you may possibly have heard. As you may also be aware, there have been more than a few motion picture adaptations of his works, and this Sunday we present excerpts from some of them—usual suspects and perhaps some under the radar. If music be the food of love, play on!
