Picture Perfect: December 17 - Charles Dickens


Humbug! This week on Picture Perfect, it’s music from movies inspired by the writings of Charles Dickens. Tune in for selections from Nicholas Nickleby (Lord Berners), Oliver Twist (Sir Arnold Bax), David Copperfield (Sir Malcolm Arnold), and A Christmas Carol (Richard Addinsell). Blame it on an undigested bit of beef, a blot of mustard, a crumb of cheese, a fragment of an underdone potato. There will be more of gravy than of grave about it, this Saturday at 6 pm.
