Melodic Treks: A Star Trek Music Podcast
Matthew Hightshoe Interview. 
  
In the eighties and nineties, buying a soundtrack usually meant an album full of hit songs that were used in a film, and every once in a while, you would get a track or two of the score included. Some labels would release an album of only score music, but. due to the costs involved with licensing the music, these albums would usually be 30 minutes in length. Over the last two decades, many new film labels have emerged and begun to release rare scores, and usually complete scores for films. But how do these releases come to be?
In this episode of Melodic Treks, host Brandon-Shea Mutala interviews Matthew Hightshoe about his upcoming documentary. We talk also talk about the quipment he uses to conduct the interviews, crowdfunding, favorite composers, and his process of pre-interviewing guests.

The Songs of Leonard Nimoy. 
  
Many Star Trek actors have expanded their talents to include other areas of artistic exploration. Some have tried their hand at directing or photography. Some have gone on to write, and some have gone on to to take a stab at a singing career. Leonard Nimoy was one of the Trek celebrities to attempt the musical arts and, in fact, released five separate albums of music.

In this episode of Melodic Treks, host Brandon-Shea Mutala is joined by Tony Robinson to talk about the singing career of Leonard Nimoy and weather or not the record labels were taking advantage of the Spock character when they released the first album.
