Yavar, David, and Jens

The Goldsmith Odyssey plays a round of musical chairs as former host Jens returns to his former seat to fill in for the absent Clark. Well, to be accurate, Jens's seat is currently occupied by David, and Yavar is in the same seat he's always been in, so Jens is actually in Clark's seat. Unless David sat there? Entirely possible Yavar sat there. I'm not sure if... anyway, your three humble hosts – that's David, Yavar, and Jens, not Clark – go all the way back to 1958 to examine a little-known and recently uncovered rarity: the Westinghouse Studio One episode "Tongues of Angels." They discuss the questionable merits of the episode itself, along with the less questionable merits of the subtly effective Goldsmith score. They offer thoughtful insights, and do not become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. Enjoy!
