My favourite online radio program, Soundtrack Cinema is currently playing Stu Phillip’s music from the old sci-fi TV series Battlestar Galactica. It brings back some great memories! Apart from loving the show as a kid, the soundtrack was the first one I ever listened to.
I was already a big fan of film music when I first discovered the soundtrack section in our local library. However, I wasn’t really aware that the music was available separate to the film (not strictly true, as I remember a friend playing the Star Wars soundtrack while we had mock battles with our Star Wars toys).
The first borrowing of the Battlestar Galactica soundtrack was the start of a hobby. I’m not sure how many soundtracks I own now, but it’s alot!
