A Great Podcast on Star Trek Film and TV Music

Melodic Tracks is one of my favorite shows on the network. Been re listening to some of the episodes and they are nice and very informative about Star Trek music. I did started listening to Star Trek music 1st with the music to the movie with scores by Jerry Goldsmith , James Horner and Dennis McCarthy and then the shows starting 1st with TOS and TNG. I have liked film music ever since I started listening to film composers like John Williams , Jerry Goldsmith , Danny Elfman , Ron Jones , Mark Snow , Hans Zimmer , David Newman , Thomas Newman , Howard Shore and tv composers like Blake Neely. My favorite Star Trek Composer is Jerry Goldsmith but also I do like James Horner's scores for The Wrath of Khan and The Search For Spock. The scores for The Kelvin Timeline films are good but to me are not as iconic as the ones from the early Trek movies. Film Music is amazing at least it was back from the late 70s up to the early 2000s now it seems film scores are not as iconic and in movies now are looked as wallpaper more now. Melodic Treks is a great podcast

Terrific and Enlightening Show

Brandon is a terrific host and knowledgeable to boot. If you enjoy music and Trek, or even just music in general and the stories behind how those pieces came to life, this is absolutely a show you need to put in your regular rotation.

I'm so happy that I discovered this podcast!

I've been a lifelong Star Trek fan, but Brandon has brought a whole new dimension (pardon the pun) to my fandom. In the past, I've paid little attention to the music, other than the iconic themes, of course. The tunes in the background were just that, background to the action. But through this wonderful podcast, I've become aware of what I've been missing all these years. Well, better late than never! As proof of Brandon's influence, I am now looking at a stack of eleven Star Trek soundtrack CDs, and I have the big La La Land TOS box set on order! Thank you so much, Brandon, for championing this wonderful music and these great composers.
