    Year Two of "The Baton: A John Williams Musical Journey" has begun, and I am giving you TWO new episodes today. The first is a fun and lively discussion about the score to "E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial," including those amazing final 15 minutes. The other episode focuses on the drama "Monsignor," which marked John Williams' first straight dramatic film in eight years and featured a very un-romantic love theme for Christopher Reeve and Genevieve Bujold.
     
    I have already recorded episodes 58-60, and those will be released over the next three Wednesdays. I am looking forward to bringing you the final 55 episodes of this podcast, and thanks to everyone for being a part of this journey with me!

    I am very excited about the newest episode in my podcast, because it features a discussion of the best score ever written: "The Empire Strikes Back".
     
    I am joined on this episode by Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra trombonist Jim Nova, who helps me understand why Vader's theme is so sinister. We also talk about that stellar music during the asteroid field chase, the big lightsaber battle in the bowels of Cloud City and whether or not the score would translate into a great musical. Learn much in this episode, you will!

    Let's get back on topic … though there is a Jerry Goldsmith connection.
     
    The 50th episode of "The Baton" is here! And the score discussed in this episode is a "super" one. I'm joined by co-host Doug Grieve as we discuss the music to "Superman." I'm sure everyone reading this knows that John Williams was not the original composer for "Superman," and we discuss that a bit while theorizing about the relationship between John Williams and Jerry Goldsmith. But, this episode is really about analyzing this great score, from the record-setting opening titles to the wonderfully orchestrated theme for the villains. Enjoy!

    The first year of "The Baton" is coming to a close. I'm so grateful to everyone who has been a part of this fun and insightful journey since the beginning, and thankful to those who found the podcast later and became new fans. I am very excited to get Year Two started, but for now, please enjoy the final episode of the year, which focuses on the film "Heartbeeps" and its very fine score by John Williams. See you in 2020 for 56 more episodes!

    Trumpeteer got a reaction from Oskar in Has anyone here heard 'Storia Di Una Donna' (1970)?   
    I just finished watching this film for an upcoming episode of my podcast. It is not a great film by any means, but that six minutes of music near the end that everyone has talked about is worth sitting through the movie.
     
    I am co-hosting the episode with Townerfan's brother Gianmaria. We are going to have a fun discussion. And thanks Mauricio for the background info on the film!

    The solo episodes have a quick turnaround and I try to have them completed at least two weeks before they go live. It takes a week to produce a show, starting with watching the film then doing research and creating the script. Recording and editing are usually done in one day. Shows with guest co-hosts take twice as long.
     
    I try to stay at least two weeks ahead so I am not rushing to get each episode done. Sometimes I am working on two episodes in the same week, if I have the time to do so.

    Thanks for the insight on "The Fury." I should have gone in more detail about having "Gillian's Power" on the CD, but it really is nowhere near as good as the film version and the there in is part of the reason.
     
    I played the "Jaws" episode on Podbean and it was fine. If you are playing it on another platform, let me know.
    That is my goal!!! But I don't think I am there ... yet.

    Yes, I am gaining so many followers each week and it's amazing! But, really, I am so busy producing each episode that I sometimes forget to let the JWFan folks know about each new episode. A new one is released EVERY Wednesday!
