Happy birthday, Jerry Goldsmith.

Noted film and TV composer Jerry Goldsmith was born on February 10, 1929. He died in 2004.

A student of legendary film composer Miklos Rozsa, Goldsmith possesses considerable credits, including the theme for The Man from U.N.C.L.E., the Star Trek films, Hoosiers, The Planet of the Apes, The Sand Pebbles, and most of all for mystery fans, Barnaby Jones, L.A. Confidential, The List of Adrian Messenger, Police Story, and Chinatown. I'll be playing some excerpts from the Chinatown soundtrack and Man from U.N.C.L.E. on the February 12th broadcast of "It's a Mystery" in Goldsmith's honor.
