For all film lovers.
Adam Schartoff is a rare host in that he’s both exceedingly knowledgeable and also a real mensch. I don’t consider myself a “film person” per se (though I enjoy a good movie as much as the next person), but Schartoff somehow makes all this accessible and entertaining. I highly recommend Filmwax Radio!
Incredible Guests and Knowledgeable Host!
Adam Schartoff does a terrific job of putting together a show that’s always engaging and insightful.
