Celebrate First Contact Day by Streaming Star Trek Music All Day on AccuRadio’s Newest Channel

In honor of our beloved holiday, First Contact Day, listen to music from all five live action series and 12 movies of Star Trek on AccuRadio’s newest channel created especially for the occasion, Spock On: The Music of Star Trek.

Hey, Trekkies! Happy First Contact Day! Yes, it is April 5, future date of Zephram Cochrane’s historic flight of the Phoenix and meeting with the Vulcans in Bozeman, Montana in 2063. I don’t know about you, but I have future plans to pitch a tent in Bozeman in 2063 and await this fabled event. Until then, however, we’ll have to make do with some 21st century entertainment.

In celebration of First Contact Day, AccuRadio has created a new channel, Spock On: The Music of Star Trek, which will be broadcasting great Star Trek music selections taken from the five series and 12 movies. In case you didn’t know, AccuRadio has been broadcasting for over 15 years and boasts 975 channels. Not to mention it’s free! Pretty impressive!

Not only is AccuRadio paying tribute to First Contact Day on April 5, its CEO and founder Kurt Hanson pays tribute to Trek every day of the year. Hanson grew up watching The Original Series and even became a graphic artist on Star Trek: Insurrection, the third Next Generation film outing. He designed animations shown on various starship computer monitors in the film. This gave Hanson a chance to make Star Trek a part of his career and further foster his love of the series.

Hanson has an extensive collection of props and memorabilia on display in AccuRadio’s Chicago office. We’re not taking a few tricorders or a comm badge here and there – staff meetings are held at a TOS conference table, you can pretend to order your raktajino from a DS9 replicator, and have a seat at the ops station from the Enterprise E. Sounds like my kind for workplace for sure.

Well, what are you waiting for? Celebrate First Contact Day by adding a soundtrack to your workday or commute with AccuRadio! You can also follow AccuRadio at Twitter (@accuradio) and on Facebook and Instagram.
