Picture Perfect Now on Saturday: Beware the Ides of March!

fall_of_the_roman_empire_soundtrack.jpg

March 15th is a day that has lived in infamy and superstition, ever since the murder of Julius Caesar in 44 B.C.  After declaring himself Dictator for Life, Caesar was set upon by members of the Roman Senate and stabbed 23 times.  Toga is the dressing of choice for a Caesar salad of films set in Ancient Rome, including “Julius Caesar” (Miklós Rózsa), “Cleopatra” (Alex North), “Gladiator” (Hans Zimmer), and “The Fall of the Roman Empire” (Dimitri Tiomkin).  Rome wasn’t built in a day; it falls in an hour, this Saturday at 6 pm.

Ross Amico is program host, and host of Picture Perfect which airs Saturdays at 6 pm and The Lost Chord which airs Sundays at 10 pm.
