The Future Is Here

Tune in to hear music from Back to the Future in celebration of #BTTF2015.

Back to the Future 30th Anniversary

This weekend on Music from the Movies, we celebrate official Back to the Future Day, which happens on Wednesday, October 21, 2015. That’s the date, in Back to the Future Part II, to which Marty McFly and Dr. Emmett Brown set their time machine. In the movie, it was a glorious future of hovercrafts, hover boards, power shoelaces, and overpriced sodas from Cafe 80’s.

Back to the Future was a movie franchise that crossed generational boundaries; both kids and adults enjoy this fantastic ride. The films had many iconic elements, most memorably, the DeLorean. Although not the filmmakers’ first choice for a time machine, it has become a staple in the fabric of film history.

Alan Silvestri conducting

Tune in this weekend to Music from the Movies to explore the music from all three films, composed by Alan Silvestri. This Saturday at 7pm or Sunday at 5pm on Classical 91.7.
