Tom Jones

During vacation week, we're trading in Broadway for Hollywood and Vine: great title movie themes from the 1940s, '50s, and '60s, sung by Andy Williams, Dick Haymes, Peggy Lee, Tom Jones, Sinatra and many more. This Sunday at 3 PM, live or streaming.

This week our WPPB TBT celebrates the 50th anniversary of "Thunderball", the 4th film in the series starring Sean Connery as British secret agent 007. Even now, half a century since its release {12/22/65 in the States and a week later in the U.K.} the adolescent in me occasionally...OK...frequently fantasizes about being Bond. James Bond. His license to kill - especially in the bedroom - is a fantasy which still stirs my teenage soul. And like most boys my age, it's a dream I just can't seem to shake.
