12:05 a.m.: Radio Stew: Wavelengths Thoughts and sounds about the length of waves, from surfing to transmission, across the spectrum. With excerpt's of Michael Snow's 1967 film, sounds of surf, Van Morrison, anothers.
2 a.m.: The Q Filmcast: The Conversation Hey, are you following me? No worries, Just setting the tone as we queue up this weeks selection, the (1974) paranoid thriller "The Conversation" from director Francis Ford Coppola staring Gene Hackman. Made between The Godfather and The Godfather Part II, The Conversation was a return to small-scale art films for Coppola. It tells the tale of sound surveillance expert Harry Caul (Gene Hackman), who is hired to track a young couple, taping their conversation as they walk through San Francisco s crowded Union Square. Knowing full well how technology can invade privacy, Harry obsessively keeps to himself, separating business from his personal life, even refusing to discuss what he does or where he lives with his girlfriend, Amy. Harry's work starts to trouble him, however, as he comes to believe that the conversation he pieced together reveals a plot by the mysterious corporate Director who hired him to murder the couple. After he allows himself to be seduced by a call girl, who then steals the tapes, Harry is all the more convinced that a killing will occur, and he can no longer separate his job from his conscience. "The Godfather Part II" and "The Conversation" earned Coppola a rare pair of Oscar nominations for Best Picture, as well as two nominations for Best Screenplay ("The Godfather Part II" won both).
