Show Broadcast 6/10/13 - 50th Anniversary Of DOCTOR WHO!

Ok, Ok. So Doctor Who doesn't come under the banner of "Classic Rock", but it certainly comes under the banner "Classic". It's been one of Ears' Presenter Dwayne Bunney's passions for most of his life, so here is a small tribute to the music that made Doctor Who so unique.

On November 23rd 2013, Doctor Who will celebrate 50 years on television, an amazing feat for any TV program, let alone a science fiction show! So for our own little celebration here at the Ears we'll feature most of the theme variations from Doctor Who, and Dwayne gets the opportunity to share some soundtracks from other TV and movies he's loved over the years.

Enjoy the trip!
