William Shatner joins host Raina Douris

It might come as a surprise that William Shatner has been releasing MUSIC for almost as long as he’s been acting – starting with The Transformed Man, his 1968 record released while still playing the role of Captain Kirk on the original “Star Trek.” Now in 2021, comes his eighth album, Bill. Showing his range in a variety of genres – from rock, to pop, to country – Shatner makes the songs his own with his unique spoken word performance. We’ll hear about his collaborations on the record with artists like Brad Paisley and Joe Jonas, and, of course, Shatner shares about his REAL-LIFE space travel last month on one of Blue Origin’s first flights.
