A while back, millions of Americans were provoked into wondering, "Who is the INFLUENTIAL?" In the big cities, one couldn't enter a cab, look at a newspaper, board a train, or go out to dinner without being confronted by this question. It was on everyone's lips. And when the answer to the mystery was revealed, it turned out that a very special group of people are "INFLUENTIALS."

They are the people who are gregarious, active, and admired. Their "cha-cha-ing" at the school dance or community social has the whole crowd taking lessons at Madame LaZonga's. And be it the latest in "cool sounds," or a new pressing of the Eroica, they dig the former, appreciate the latter, and move others to share their enthusiasm and enjoyment.

These men and women are younger, fun-loving, well-informed, and articulate people who lead the way to new things, new experiences. What they talk about, others remember and repeat. Where they lead, others follow. And their influence moves sideways, by word of mouth, from person to person, neighbor to neighbor, on every income level.

In a comprehensive research study, Film Score Monthly proved that the majority of its readers are "INFLUENTIALS." For FSM is a message board that moves people - that makes people think - in short, a message board that attracts just such guys and gals. Our thanks go to FSM for identifying these fascinating men and women. The FSM message board is a tribute to "INFLUENTIALS" everywhere...as a musical reflection of the wide variety of their activities and interest.

Good topic.

Personally, I don't think I have any kind of influence, but I'm driven by an almost missionary-type dedication: My website, podcast, lectures, juries, articles, you name it. I want to get the good word on film music out there - especially to curious people who have a latent interest.

Inside the walls of the FSM board, however, one would be preaching to the choir. We're all converts. So it's more about pushing people towards this and that score or composer. One generally finds a member whose tastes overlap, whose insights are considerable (the ol' 'ethos' argument in rhetorics) and whose enthusiasm is infectious, and then explores from there. A good example is Kev McGann. Although I very often disagree with him on many issues, there's something about his way of posting - short, dedicated and specific comments about the aesthetic value of something - that makes me want to seek out the thing he's talking about.

Liner notes! But from which album? Nelson Riddle? Henry Mancini? Up with People?
