The Sounds of 007 – If Only We’d Been There
Back in October 2022, a special 60th Anniversary concert entitled The Sounds of 007 was held at the Royal Albert Hall. While Alan and Jarrod wished they could have been there with fellow Bond fans to enjoy the event, they instead decided to watch the Amazon Prime show that featured selected highlights, and talk about it on the latest Bond Music: Six of the Best episode. As a bonus, actor John Moss, and writer Ajay Chowdhury shared their thoughts on what it was like to be there on the night. – You can catch the whole discussion HERE.
The Ultimate Six of The Best Episode?
Over the holiday season we decided to do something a bit different for our Bond Music: Six of the Best Episode. Instead of two people picking six tracks from one album – how about four people picked eight tracks from an album that consisted of four discs? Surely the “ultimate” episode.
The album in question was the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra‘s excellent “The Ultimate James Bond Music Collection” box set. To tackle this extensive retrospective of 007 music Alan and Jarrod were joined by guests Luis Pachon and Matt Raubenheimer.
You can check out which tracks we each selected right HERE.

Rogue Agents – Bond Trailers Part 1
Over on the On Her Majesty’s Secret Podcast network new Rogue Agent, Alan, got to lead the show for the first time and decided that the crew should take yet another look at all the Bond movies. But this time just by watching the various trailers used to promote the movie. In each of the trailers episodes, we will watch the trailer, discuss any thoughts and notes it provoked, and then decide if it would have made us interested enough to actually go see the movie. Kicking things off we discussed the trailers for Doctor No, From Russia With Love, and Goldfinger. You can find out what we all thought of them, and if 007 really does spell Bond, by clicking HERE.
