In the first part of the show [click here to listen to it] we focused on jazz inspired by the music composed by James Barry for the James Bond series. Here we switch our attention to other great soundtrack composers like Lalo Schifrin, or Quincy Jones, and other movie characters like Sherlock Holmes, Ms. Marple, Nero Wolfe or Dirty Harry. And we look into how Charlie Parker became Charlie Chan. We then wrap things up with the daughter of the writer of the "Detective Writer Daughter." Not sure what does that mean? Well, then play this episode to find out!
