Regular readers know that for the past five weeks (except one!) I’ve been appearing with Rob Daniels on his radio show Visions in Sound at 98.5 CKWR, talking about movie soundtracks. Also appearing were Erik Woods and Jason Drury live from the UK. May was Star Wars month, and we did four shows dedicated to the 40th anniversary of that franchise:
May 6: Star Wars for a New Generation (Rogue One, Rebels)
May 13: Alternate Forces (Star Wars video game soundtracks – I missed this one due to prior commitment)
May 20: The Prequels (Music from Episodes I, II, and III)
And there was also the June 3 show, the celebration of The 30th Anniversary of Spaceballs, a classic Mel Brooks parody of Star Wars (and other classic sci-fi).
All these shows and more can be accessed on the Visions in Sound archives.
So thanks Rob for asking me to be on the show, and to new friends Erik and Jason.
Not to toot our own horns too much, but these were great shows. It’s hard to listen live at 12:30 in the morning, but if you take the time to listen to one of these shows in the archives, I know I’d appreciate it. Great music was played, much geeking-out was had, but you’ll also hear a ton of knowledge that you probably never knew before, from four guys who live and breathe this stuff.
Hoping to do this again soon!
