Melodic Treks: A Star Trek Music Podcast
23: Merry Trekmas

Trekmas or in this case Trackmas time, is a time for sharing and in this episode of Melodic Treks, the crew of the USS TREK FM roast some marsh melons around the camp fire, sit next to the tree and pick a track or two that they enjoy and share it with you. The tracks are as varied as a present selection under a tree. Some you may have guessed ahead of time and some like all good presents are a surprise. Some take a glass of egg nog or some nice mulled wine. sit back plug in your newly aquired ipod and let the crew of Trek Fm wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year, Star Trek Style.

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.
