If you’ve been wondering where Blue Rose Task Force Podcast got its theme music from, look no further than this episode. The podcast recently celebrated its first birthday by telling the story of how its theme music came to be.
What began as a long-unused song sketch from the early 2000s grew into what you hear at the beginning and end of every BRTF episode thanks to host John Bernardy, the podcast’s premier field reporter Elle Holgate, and musician Joe Coyne, all of whom speak about their part of the process creating the song.
This glimpse into the planning stages of a podcast explains what factors were important to convey through the song, and why it was perfect for the show. You’ll also learn about Elle and Joe’s previous collaborations, how they understand music works within Twin Peaks, and the nuts and bolts of instruments and sounds used. You’ll even get a verbal tour of where the music was recorded. Early versions of the song make an appearance, as do the lyrics its song sketch once contained.
Regular BRTF listeners may notice the podcast has many more episodes than are currently listed here at 25YL, but we will be remedying this beginning next week when we delve into Blue Rose Task Force’s entrance into Season 2. In the meantime you can find every current podcast episode in most streaming and podcast services, including the pod’s home page.
