    Trumpeteer got a reaction from Yavar Moradi in New Podcast! The Baton: A John Williams Musical Journey   
    I have listened to a couple of episodes and really enjoyed them! I am not dealing with any of John Williams' TV work, only to mention that he was working on something in TV while composing a film score.
     
    I only plan for this to be a two-year project. I am anxious to see the Goldsmith Odyssey go for a decade!

    Happy New Year to my fellow JWFan members! I am embarking on a new venture that I know will appeal to all of you.
    I am the host of the podcast “The Baton: A John Williams Musical Journey.” The podcast is devoted to John Williams’ music career, from his first film in 1959 to the present. It’s a podcast unlike any of the others out there. Each episode will be devoted to one movie in Williams’ lengthy career, 107 films and counting. Think of it as a biography of John Williams, told through his music.
    You can hear the first three episodes now at this link I've embedded the player for the first episode below as well. Episode 1 sets up the premise of the podcast and details John Williams’ life before he tackled his first film score. Episode 2 officially starts the journey through his career with a listen to Williams’ score for his debut film “Daddy-O.” Episode 3 analyzes the score for his second film “I Passed For White.”
    This podcast will examine Williams’ career in chronological order. This way, you’ll appreciate the journey toward the scores that made him famous. New episodes will be available each Wednesday. The podcast will appear on iTunes in a few days.
    Though I hope my podcast appeals to the general public, I’m extremely interested to know what John Williams fans think of it. You can post comments here in the forums or on the podcast’s website. You can also send me an email at jeffswim@aol.com if you don’t want to comment publicly.
    Thanks for listening!

    Listened to the first episode earlier, listening to the second now. It's very nice and I appreciate the research and information you provide. The pace is pretty good as well. Two suggestions:
    1. Since you are going solo and don't have a co-presenter to converse with, I would scrub your scripts a little more to take out any excessive words like overusing "very". I would approach the scripts like a written article, with the same tightness and economy.
     
    2. Since you are going chronologically, I think it is tempting to make claims like "John Williams had yet to discover the idea of writing themes for characters" but of course this is not true. Musical themes had been written for characters for films and television long before JW started doing so and even longer in music written for opera, ballet, etc. Because he hadn't done it yet doesn't mean he was unaware of the possibility. There were probably other reasons why he didn't write a character theme for one film or another.
     
    Other than that, good stuff. It's nice to hear these excerpts from JW's early career. I look forward to more episodes.

    I'll check this out, but I'll definitely give a full listen to my obvious favourites: STAR WARS, E.T., CLOSE ENCOUNTERS, RAIDERS, SUPERMAN (to name a few), and the more recent TINTIN, WAR HORSE, and THE POST. 
     
    A splendid idea, and I'll bookmark it.

    Thanks for listening, and for pointing out the little goofs in the first episode. The dates I found in my research had his involvement with Peter Gunn in 1957, but it could have been off.
     
    When I was talking about writing something "original," I was referring to music for film or other media. I read something about a piano sonata in his early days, but could not find a definitive date for it. So, I left it out.
     
    Sorry I beat you to the punch on the podcast idea. I was certain someone had done something like this in recent years, and was extremely surprised to find nothing.
     
    The show falls under "fair use," meaning I do not need to worry about copyright:
     
    "...brief excerpts of copyright material may, under certain circumstances, be quoted verbatim for purposes such as criticism, news reporting, teaching, and research, without the need for permission from or payment to the copyright holder."
     
    The podcast falls under criticism, so I'm OK. I spoke with two lawyers about this before starting because I didn't want to do all this work only to be shut down by a movie studio.
