Hello, fellow Oscar lovers! I’ve created a new podcast that I hope you will enjoy. It’s called The Best Song Podcast, and it will examine the 450-plus songs that have been nominated for the Best Original Song Oscar since its inception in 1934.
The main focus of the podcast is to tell the stories of the songwriters and singers who created such legendary songs as “Moon River,” “White Christmas,” “Fame,” “My Heart Will Go On” and many more. I also want to highlight the songwriters who barely got 15 minutes of fame in their careers, and you’ll have a bigger appreciation for movie music with this 92-episode series. The Original Song category has been one of the most volatile and controversial throughout its history, and I’ll share that in this podcast series.
The first episode is now available at http://bestsongpodcast.podbean.com and the Podbean app. It will be available on other podcast platforms soon. After more than a year of research and production, I’m very excited that the show is now yours to enjoy. New episodes every Monday!January 2, 2023 at 2:32 pm #1205218725
I’ll be listening. Fingers crossed! Be proud of your hard work! 🙂January 2, 2023 at 2:54 pm #1205218738

Just a friendly bump to remind everyone about The Best Song Podcast, a 92-episode series which began last week. Episode two is now available, and it details the stories behind the first year of the Academy Award for Best Song. The three songs in contention in 1934 featured three people who would become cinema legends: Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, and Bing Crosby. The podcast is now available on Spotify, and should show up on other podcast platforms later this week. Until then, check out episode two:January 16, 2023 at 7:06 am #1205247658
The Best Song Podcast is now on ALL podcast platforms, including Apple Podcasts! Just in time for the release of episode three, which brings us the three songs nominated for the Best Song Oscar in 1935. One of them became a timeless classic. One of them pushed the boundaries of what could be done with movie songs, and the other made history with the first woman nominated for songwriting.January 16, 2023 at 8:27 am #1205247805

I hope you’re enjoying the show so far, Nathan!
Episode four is now available to listen to on all major podcast platforms, and on the show’s website, https://bestsongpodcast.podbean.com/.
While you wait to hear which films will be named as nominees for the 95th Academy Awards, take a trip back in time to the 9th Academy Awards, when songs performed by Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire were nominated. Will one of those two songs give their songwriters the coveted award, or will one of the other four nominees take the crown?Not now
