Kirk and Spock began their trek to the final frontier on TV back in 1966, and they and their later colleagues have been taking us on outer space adventures ever since. On this week's Movies on the Radio, host David Garland offers some of the music composed to add heart, drama, and humor to those adventures.
We hear music by Alexander Courage, Gerald Fried, Jerry Fielding, Fred Steiner, Jerry Goldsmith, Jay Chattaway, and Dennis McCarthy from the original and subsequent editions of Star Trek on television.
