This week's soundtrack memoir reminds us of an uneasy time in history, and how the music I chose to listen reflected it...

Thanks as always for reading!

Reading this blog might be worth it for the drawings alone!

We're back with another installment of "My Adventures in Underscore," when I made my first friend in soundtracks, even though he didn't even know I existed. But things began to change quickly after that...

Thanks for reading!

Just a reminder that you can read all 11 parts of my ongoing soundtrack memoir, from the 1960s through the '80s. And of course, the latest edition tees up some familiar faces who we'll meet through first-hand recollections. Join me in two weeks when I first enter... well, you'll see.

All stories can be found at this link:

Thanks for taking a look! Happy Labor Day everyone!

This week’s soundtrack memoir comes from a time in the late 1980s when I discovered an amazing record shop in San Francisco (hint, hint)—and everything else in my life went south.

Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Today's post takes us back 31 years when events dramatic and personal made one birthday weekend unforgettable. As always, there's a link to playlists on Apple and Spotify as well...

Thanks for reading!

I thought it would be fun to create playlists for my soundtrack memoirs, but - big surprise! - the streaming services sure come up short. I have to settle for a lot of second-rate re-recordings or sound-similar alternates to make a list of ten per installment.

I guess I’d better hang on to my CDs after all. ;-)

Assuming you want people to see it on your website....

The YouTubes usually have soundtracks a'plenty. Maybe you could embed those into your webpages.

This week’s extremely soundtrack-rich entry is from a period (the early '90s) when I was spending a lot of time (and money) at a certain record store in San Francisco… poised for my entry into a larger world.

Hope you enjoy it, and have a great weekend too!

I started writing about my “soundtrack history” because I had a few stories about music that I wanted to share. This one is about a major turning point in my life, involving a kid from Martha’s Vineyard and his self-published magazine...

Don’t miss the playlist that goes with it. I hope that you have some musical moments of your own this weekend!

I'm back with another installment of my personal soundtrack history, which should be interesting to members of this board. Specifically, that time 25 years ago when I joined the staff of FSM and met Lukas Kendall in person for the first time...

Thanks for reading!

I can't say enough about the outstanding performance of the RSNO during the ODG and TMWKTM sessions this week. So I've started a three-part blog about the experience:

You can read parts 2 and 3 in the coming weeks.

My recent trip to Glasgow with Intrada to record a pair of Herrmann scores was too epic for a single post, so here’s part 2 of 3:

As always, my soundtrack memoirs include a playlist as well. Thanks for reading (and listening)—hope you have a great weekend ahead!

If you'd like some real behind-the-scenes details of recording Bernard Herrmann with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, you might want to read part 3 of my report:

Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you in the funny pages!
