Connecting William Shatner and John Lithgow Musically.
Have you ever played Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon? In this episode of Melodic Treks, host Brandon-Shea Mutala head into the Star Trek universe to play the classic game of Six Degrees of Separation… but with a musical twist. We challenged the members of Trek.fm’s Facebook listeners’ group, The Babel Conference, to come up with the name of an actor to connect to William Shatner. The winning choice, submitted by listener Carl Morries, was John Lithgow. These two actors have been in many films and television productions, so we decided to use only movies whose scores were composed by Star Trek composers. Listen on to trace a path back to Lithgow to Shatner. And how does Jamie Lee Curtis fit into all of this?

Mr. William Shatner has many strings to his bow. Beyond acting, writing, and directing, he is also a commercially viable audio artist with many albums and performances to his name. In this episode of Melodic Treks, we delve into the world of musical Shatner from his first album in 1968 to his most recent in 2013. The man has continued to perform and record his own unique style of music, delivered as only he can, and this in itself adds to the unique nature of his musical intepretations. From Transformed Man to Ponder the Mystery via the Rocket Man and a tribute to George Lucas, journey with us through the singing career of William Shatner.
