Guest Appearance On OST

OST is one of my favorite radio shows on WXNA. Sam Smith puts on a great broadcast every Tuesday from 9-11PM CST featuring a wide array of original soundtrack music. Sam asked Randy Fox and me to come into the studio and pick out some of our favorite tracks for his 4.11.17 program.

In preparation, I put together 3 blocks of music for the show and did some on-the-spot editing in the studio to keep us on schedule. This is the full, unedited playlist with feature film, documentary, television, podcast, and video game OST music. You can listen to this playlist by clicking on the "Listen" tab at the top of the page.
