Sunday, 06 February 2011 14:57

On February 4, 2011 Fali R. Singara did a special show live of John Barry's best themes and his legacy to Bond on All India Radio in Mumbai.

Over 300 people called in and sms-ed (texted) their comments during the three hours he was on live. Fali did the show in two segments - Bond & Non Bond work.

The Top 3 favourite Barry movie scores according to Indian listeners (other than Bond) were Born Free (number 1), The Lion In Winter & Somewhere In Time. The top 3 Bond scores were From Russia With Love (Number 1), On Her Majesty's Secret Service & Goldfinger.

Almost all the listeners agreed that Matt Monro was the best male vocalist to do a Bond theme while Shirley Bassey was the best female singer.
