Melodic Treks: A Star Trek Music Podcast
14: The Doctor Parodies

The Vocal Talents of Robert Picardo.

Most of us have heard the Doctor sing on Voyager, but he also has carried his fair share of tunes outside of Star Trek both on stage and screen. In this episode of Melodic Treks we take a look at the man behind the hologram and his singing. This aspect of his life, which began from a very early age, has seen him perform in a variety of roles and styles—some of which may surprise you.

13: Darkness In the Hall

The Royal Albert Hall Concerts.

Recently two concerts took place at the Royal Albert Hall in London England in which Michael Giacchino led performances of his scores from Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness. Each film received its own night, and the consecutive concerts both sold out. In this episode of Melodic Treks we talk to two people who were there: Jon Taylor and Laura Fawcett. They tell us about the concert, the mood of the event, and the surprise guests. They also talk to us about the music they like from the two films and highlight some of the wonderful aspects of hearing this live.
