Presenter Andrew Collins returns to the popular theme of animated films, after Classic FM listener Ciaran contacted him to request The Lion KingKung Fu Panda and Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, all composed by Hans Zimmer. There are also requests from another Classic FM listener – Alice from Carlisle – who wants to hear Thomas Newman’s score for Finding Dory and John Powell’s music for How to Train Your Dragon. With plenty of fun for all the family, part of the show will be devoted to stop-motion animation, as requested by Kathryn in Swindon, who’s asked to hear music from Wallace and Gromit, in memory of Peter Sallis.
