Cinema Classics

Two big Columbus media personalities -- John DeSando and Johnny DiLoretto -- put their love of great movies on the line every week on Cinema Classics, a dynamic conversation about the classics of the past and the contemporary movies and performers that might be classics in the future. Then, of course, these guys could always engage in the odd, unclassifiable discussion...you just never know with these two.
