Melodic Treks: A Star Trek Music Podcast

The Unexpected Music in Star Trek.

Elvis Presley. Frank Sinatra. Billie Holiday. Some of the greatest names in music pop up in your favorite Star Trek episodes, either by association or by actually having their music featured—and it's not all classical as you might expect. Do your ears perk up? In this episode of Melodic Treks we delve into this diverse collection, which includes a dose of classical Japanese and some classic rock. So plug in your earphones and find out what Zefram Cochrane listened to on his jukebox.
