    Trumpeteer got a reaction from Salinoc in New Podcast! The Baton: A John Williams Musical Journey   
    Hello, everyone! It's been a while since I've posted on this topic, not really a surprise since I posted the last episode in December 2020. But, as you know, two new John Williams scores are coming out soon, and The Baton is coming back to continue the John Williams musical journey!
     
    I plan on releasing the episode covering the music for "The Fablemans" and the work Williams has done since "Rise of Skywalker" soon. And the episode for Indy 5 will be out shortly after that movie's release. I'm waiting to hear the music for both films until I hear them in the movies. (Though I broke my rule and listened to the music from Indy 5 premiered at the Hollywood Bowl.)
     
    In the meantime, I'm working on another podcast, called The Best Song Podcast. It will debut in January 2023, and, like The Baton, will be an oral history of music through multiple decades. This time, I'll be discussing the songs that were nominated for an Academy Award in the first 90 years of the award, from 1934 to 2023. I'm having a lot of fun with the research, and listening to many of the songs has been a thrill and an education.
     
    The research has been extensive, and I've started a Kickstarter campaign to raise the $2,200 for preproduction costs. That includes buying lots of biographies of songwriters, hiring a graphic designer to create a logo and a professional voiceover artist to record the opening and closing of each episode. I hope you can give something to help me cover these costs. I don't get a dime of it unless the entire $2,200 is raised, so please give what you can.

    Trumpeteer got a reaction from artus_grayboot in What if Williams HAD scored Batman ‘89?   
    I am happy to see all the comments that have sprung from the information I gave on my podcast about Williams almost scoring "Batman." I never tried to ponder what the music would sound like, but I do believe Burton would have fought for Danny Elfman, unsuccessfully.
     
    The problem is that Jon Peters was the Harvey Weinstein of his day (minus the sex stuff) and no one said no to him. So, if Jon Peters had gotten John Williams that was the final decision. That is also part of the reason Prince got involved. Burton caved in to demands that Prince write songs and he has said often that he regrets that decision.

    Trumpeteer got a reaction from artus_grayboot in New Podcast! The Baton: A John Williams Musical Journey   
    The possibility of me exploring his TV scores deeper than I already have is very low. It's hard to track down exactly which episodes he scored, and which were taken from the Universal library. The concert works would be fun, but many of them were never recorded, so they are impossible to find. I have had some help finding some of the ones I feature in some of the episodes, but I can't imagine someone out there has, for example, one of the two performances of Symphony No. 1.
     
    I started working on this project two years ago this month. It required a lot of sacrifice from other things in my life, which I was very happy to do. Now, it is almost time to ride off in the sunset. I will do an "epilogue" episode after Rise of Skywalker, and that's probably the last one, unless a film score announcement comes.

    Hello, all. I was invited to speak about John Williams in a new episode of the podcast "Speeding Bullitt," which is very similar to my John WIlliams podcast in that it is an oral biography of Steve McQueen's life through his movies. The link below will take you to the episode I did, which discusses Williams' work on the Steve McQueen film "The Reivers."
     
    As many of you know, "The Reivers" turned out to be a pivotal point in John Williams' career, and I was happy to educate the show's host on that, and other tidbits about John Williams' life before and after that film.

    I was at the Sunday concert and it was a lot of fun. Of course, since I have finished my podcast, I knew there would be no new film music for me to hear, but that was fine. The Overture to the Oscars was new, I think? I have to look it up, but it sounded like the music that opened the 2002 Oscars when he was co-musical director. 
     
    I enjoyed seeing JW looking so lively at 89 years old. I spoke with a woman after the show, and after I told her John Williams was five months away from turning 90, she said, "He looked like he was in his 70s!"
     
    But the highlight of the show was meeting Eduardo Victoria, who was a cohost on my podcast for the "War of the Worlds" episode. It was the first time meeting one of my cohosts in person, and we had a wonderful pre-show conversation.
