Talking SPECTRE on Seattle radio

To coincide with the release of SPECTRE in the US I was invited to talk all things 007 on Seattle-based radio show The Political Bistro.


Co-host Mark Griswold is a subscriber to The James Bond Dossier monthly newsletter and got in contact to invite me on the show, which you can listen to here. It first aired on AM 1590 The Answer at 6pm on Saturday 7th November.

During the segment on Bond, which starts at the 14:50 minute mark, I talk about why I started this website and go on to discuss with Mark and Steve Corda what we liked and disliked about SPECTRE. The show was fun to record and the co-hosts are real Bond fans – they know their stuff.

    Hi David. We share the commonality of having come to know Bond first via the Ian Fleming novels and then progressing to the movies. I thoroughly enjoyed your interview. I totally agree with you that perhaps Spectre was a little too fast paced, but then we seem to live in a fast paced world now with so much information overload. Just, maybe, Spectre echoes the mood of our present time: just a reflection. Like yourself, I found the Sam Smith theme song more enjoyable within the framework of the movie itself than by its own. However, for me, my favourite Bond theme will always be the enchanting strains of You Only Live Twice. In conclusion, so lovely to hear you in person. Perhaps, when I return to London one day I may have the absolute pleasure to meet you in person, perhaps at a Bond premier ;-,X Toodles, Andrew
