Film biz gets Sirius

Brown to host radio show on new pic releases

Satellite-radio service Sirius said it has begun offering a talkshow devoted to the movie biz, hosted by longtime film authority Richard Brown.

“Movies 101” will focus on new releases both domestic and foreign. The weekly show will be aired seven times a week on one of the subscription service’s 100 audio channels.

The show is based on a class Brown first began teaching at New York University in 1969 that featured a film screening and a conversation with the movie’s principals.

The classes are now held at the Loews State Theater in Times Square, and the conversation part of the class will be recorded and interspersed with audio from the movie to create the show.

The program’s initial slate includes Sigourney Weaver, Ben Stiller, Richard Dreyfuss, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kevin Spacey and Harrison Ford.

Brown, an NYU humanities professor with the Intl. Center for Film and Television, is a consultant to the Library of Congress’ motion pictures division, and a lecturer at Harvard, Yale, the Sorbonne and the Smithsonian Institutes.

Sirius is one of two recently launched satellite radio services. Both require special radios and antennas and charge a monthly subscription for 100 channels of music, news, talk and other audio programming.
