Dan Zehr & Jim Hill start off this episode by discussing the rescheduling of the next three “Star Wars” theatrical releases. Then Jim takes a look at John Williams’ tenure as the conductor of the Boston Pops


Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:

• Why Disney’s subscription streaming service is now seen as something of a safe harbor for the “Star Wars” legacy characters (Obi-Wan, Lando & the like)

• How — in spite of the pandemic— Dan & his son Mason recently got to see “The Empire Strikes Back” back up on the big screen

• Why the Imagineers are allegedly already giving some semi-serious thought to swapping out the ride film elements of “Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run”

• What role did Anthony Daniels play in John Williams’ official debut as the newly installed conductor of the Boston Pops

. Why did a bunch of Coca-Cola-filled thermal detonators turn up in a grocery store in Hartford, Alabama
