This week on Film Score Focus we're going to focus solely on an instrument affectionally nicknamed the clown prince of the orchestra...the bassoon! As a composer and as a music lover, I love bassoon so very much. It's such a super cool and versatile instrument: provacative, alluring, dark, jolly, and capable of playing basslines as easily as high melodic lines. I'm also especially in tune to this instrument as of late, because my oldest son is preparing for his first year of middle school band playing the bassoon.

Join me Friday night at 9:00PM or Saturday evening at 5:00PM right here on 89.5 KMFA. You can also listen live via the internet at

Here's the lineup for FSF-486 "Bassoon: Clown Prince Of The Orchestra"
