Here's today's lineup:

Getting Rocky Mountain high on films

(Starts at :45)

The Telluride Film Festival, which takes place over Labor Day weekend, is known for premiering movies that end up as Academy Award best picture nominees. The Frame's John Horn attends the festival every year and he fills us in on the 2018 lineup, which includes "First Man," directed by Damien Chazelle (best director for "La La Land") and starring Ryan Gosling as Apollo astronaut Neil Armstrong.

Richard Thompson still burns it up

(Starts at 7:43)

Acclaimed British singer-songwriter and guitarist Richard Thompson talks about his latest album, "13 Rivers." The album showcases Thompson’s smoldering guitar work and a batch of songs that range from ballads influenced by Scottish funeral marches to taut up-tempo rockers. Thompson, now 69, reflects on the pain and pleasure of songwriting — and of being a (Sufi) Muslim and an immigrant living in the U.S. in the Trump era.
