    Varese Sarabande CD Club - Part 2

    Varese Sarabande CD Club - Part 2

    In today's episode of THE FLAGSHIP SHOW on the CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO PODCAST, Jason Drury joins Erik Woods to present part two of their look at Varese Sarabande Records' latest three batches of CD club releases.


    Varese Sarabande CD Club began in the late '80s which was a mail-order CD club of great film scores not otherwise available on compact disc. It wasn't until 1989 did we get to see the first release. In the first batch of releases, which came out between 1989 and 1992, we got to finally hear on CD for the first time such scores as CHERRY 2000, FEDORA, VIBES, RED SONJA, RAGGEDY MAN, STAR N BARS, THE BURBS, WE'RE NO ANGELS, JAGGED EDGE and others for the first time on CD.


    In part two, you'll hear selections from DANTE'S PEAK by John Frizzell with themes by James Newton Howard, PAYCHECK by John Powell and LIONHEART by Jerry Goldsmith. You'll also hear a surprise suite at the end of the program from one of the earliest releases in the Varese Sarabande CD Club back in the late 80s.


    On the program, I recommended that you all listen to the LIONHEART episode of THE GOLDSMITH ODYSSEY.  It's one of their very best episodes where they do a deep dive into all of the missing music and the numerous themes Goldsmith composed for the film. Check it out HERE!


    Also, head over to varesesarabande.com to purchase a copy of any of the albums you hear on the program today!

    Scored To Death Radio with J. Blake Fichera: The Sounds of Stephen King - Chapter Two

    Scored To Death Radio with J. Blake Fichera: The Sounds of Stephen King - Chapter Two

    For decades Stephen King has inspired readers and artists, making him among the most successful authors of his generation. His impact on the world of cinema and television is arguably unmatched by any other novelist, and some of Hollywood’s most talented and respected filmmakers have adapted his work. However, what gets less attention is that an equally gifted, respected, and eclectic group of artists has created the music for the massive list of films and T.V. series/mini-series based on his writings.


    This is the second instalment into a limited series, in which host J. Blake Fichera takes you through the vast, beautiful and terrifying cinematic soundscape inspired by the horror texts of one of the most celebrated and prolific authors of the last 50 years—Stephen King.


    You'll hear selections from MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE, DREAMCATCHER, SALEM'S LOT, THE DARK HALF, CAT'S EYE, FIRESTARTER, and many more.

    All Request Show #1

    All Request Show #1

    Erik Woods presents the first ALL REQUEST SHOW since 2004 on today’s new episode of THE FLAGSHIP SHOW on the CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO PODCAST.


    Since launching the CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO PODCAST Patreon a few months ago, we’ve offered our patrons exclusive perks based on the tier they signed up for. One of those perks is participating in all request programs.


    All Request Shows were a norm for CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO back on the FM dial between 1996 and 2006. They were some of my favourite shows. It gave my listeners a chance to participate in the programming of the show and was always a special program to produce. It’s been 17 years since the last all-request show so as a perk for some of our patrons we are now bringing back the all-request show on a bi-monthly basis. If you want to participate in future all-request shows, please head over to our Patreon page, and join the community in any tier that is $5 USD/month or above. Once you do so you will be able to participate in all upcoming all request programs.


    For this premiere all-request program, our participants included Max Hamulyak, Dave Williams, Victor Field, Don Mase, Alphonse Brown, Douglas Lacey, Williams Welch, Alan Rogers, Tim Burden and Joe Wiles. They requested tracks from such composers as Rachel Portman, John Powell, Ron Grainer, James Horner, John Barry, John Paesano, Hans Zimmer, David Newman, Jane Antonia Cornish and Bear McCreary. Let me tell you, the playlist is fantastic! Sure, some selections come from big blockbusters but there are other selections that come from more obscure fare. And one cue was from a score I had never heard before.


    With that being said, I hope you all enjoy the program. This was easily one of the most enjoyable shows I’ve produced in years. Again, for those that didn’t get a chance to participate and want to be a part of October’s all-request program, we’d love to have you join the CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO PODCAST Patreon family. But don’t feel like you have to join. I’m not forcing anyone to join. Remember this podcast will always be free to listen to but if you want to support the program and join the community we’ve formed on Patreon then we’d love to have you.


    Enjoy the show!

    Soundtrack Alley: Waterworld

    Soundtrack Alley: Waterworld

    The tenth episode of SOUNDTRACK ALLEY here on CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO is a discussion between Erik Woods and Randy Andrews about the film and score to the 1995 Kevin Reynolds directed post-apocalyptic adventure film, WATERWORLD, starring Kevin Costner, Dennis Hopper, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Tina Majorino and Michael Jeter. Set in the distant future, the polar ice cap has completely melted, and the sea level has risen covering nearly all of the land. The plot of the film centres on an otherwise nameless antihero, "The Mariner", a drifter who sails the Earth in his trimaran.


    The original score for the film was composed by James Newton Howard, performed by The Hollywood Studio Symphony Orchestra and Chorus and was recorded by Bruce Botnick. The original soundtrack recording was originally released on MCA Soundtracks and was re-released in expanded form by La La Land Records 2017.


    On the program, you'll hear Randy and Erik talk about various topics including when they first saw the film, the bloated budget of the film, the use of practical vehicles and sets, the production design, modern composing tropes, how Hans Zimmer and Steve Porcaro assisted in the creation of this score, the contrast between high adventure and world music aesthetics, a detailed breakdown of six essential cues from the score and much more.

Great podcast

I recently discovered the Cinematic Sound Radio podcast, and while I’m happy to have found it, I’m disappointed I did not do so sooner!

I recently re-listened to Melodic Treks podcast with Brandon Shea-Mutala and Erik’s debate over which Goldsmith Trek score was better (First Contact or Nemesis - agree with FC though I love Insurrection as well) so that’s how I discovered this show.

What a wonderful podcast! I’ve listened to a few of the shows so far and I am currently listening to tribute to Basil Poledouris. Each show that I have listened to is filled with beautiful cinematic scores, excellent information about each piece & composer, trivia about why the composer did or did not create the piece, and excellent intro’s/outro’s for each segment.

I mean this in the greatest compliment, Erik’s show & coal stylings sound like CBC Radio Two classical music shows that I listened to growing up. I enjoy movie scores and believe that they are the classical music of our times. Thank you and Bravo!

I look forward to starting from the beginning and catching up. 5/5 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Mr Safety ,

Really great podcast

For me, music is my favorite part of most movies and the thing I remember long after I have seen the film. Cinematic Sound Radio brings some of the BEST music from TV, cinema, and video games directly to you every week in a high quality audio podcast. I really have no reason not to recommend this podcast to music lovers of all stripes; particularly those of us who often enjoy the music as much, if not more than, the movies that feature them. 5/5

My favourite show bar none

This is my favourite podcast in a long list of subscriptions and by a fair margin. Erik’s insights and selections are brilliant.

I just listened to your heart to heart episode, Erik, and I felt really convicted about the fact that I hadn’t reviewed the show yet. Your work on this show means a great deal to me and it’s played a big part in lifting me out of some dark places. I want you to know that whatever the future holds for CSR, that this show and your work on it holds a really special place in my heart.

Thank you
