QOTW: What’s your favorite movie that you think most people haven’t seen?
The other voices you hear during Jeff’s review of “The Sapphires” are Dan Mecca and Raffi Asdourian (both of The Film Stage), who were hanging out with us during that episode.
To get a taste of Dodgers announcer Red Barber’s classic old-timey radio voice, check out this recording of a 1950 game. Start at about 6:30. At 8:30, he does an ad for Post Sugar Crisp (“There’s three little honey bears on the front!”).

Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider
Jeff Bayer and Eric D. Snider are movie critics, but not the stuffy, elitist kind. They’re not the idiotic fanboy kind either. So what kind of movie critics are they? The kind with an Internet radio show, that’s what.
“Movie B.S.” features reviews of new films both good and bad, smackdowns of the bad movies of yesteryear, and a plethora of other movie-related features. All of it is tied together by cavalier banter between Bayer and Snider, who noticed that there was a dearth of cavalier banter on the Internet and sought to rectify that.
