Melodic Treks: A Star Trek Music Podcast

Five Favorites with C Bryan Jones. 
  
Podcasting is a medium that provides an outlet for fans to discuss elements of their fandom in an inexpensive and easily accessible way. However, many podcasts don't last to make their milestone of a 100th episode. Beginning in December of 2013 with host Colin Higgins, Brandon-Shea Mutala would take the reigns with episode 25 in 2016. The show would have many tangents with non-Trek related scores by Trek composers, as well as many interviews with composers and producers of soundtrack releases. After all that, it seemed an easy choice for who to have on as a special guest for the 100th episode of the show.


In this episode of Melodic Treks, host Brandon-Shea Mutala is joined by the founder of the TrekFM network, C Bryan Jones (for his first appearance on the show) to discuss his five favorite Star Trek score tracks in this special milestone episode. We also discuss Chris's history with music, Wil Wheaton's new polka album, and peak Star Trek.

Five Favorites with Zach Moore.
 
Star Trek III: The Search For Spock continued the story of the Genesis planet and revealed the ultimate fate of Spock, who nobly sacrificed himself to save his crew mates at the end of the last film. One great success from the previous film was its score, composed by James Horner. When Leonard Nimoy came on board to helm the film, he wanted to go a different direction, utilizing his friend Leonard Rosenman, but the studio won the day, and Honorer returned, and, according to some, surpassed his previous Trek accomplishment.


In this episode of Melodic Treks, host Brandon-Shea Mutala is joined by Zach Moore of Standard Orbit to talk about his five favorite tracks from the score to Star Trek III: The Search For Spock, composed by James Horner. We also discuss why this is his favorite Trek film, and, as always, we have a few tangents along the way.
