(Editor’s note: We had a bit of trouble with the audio. First, Mike didn’t have Michael T. Ryan’s line recording, so you miss the first bit of what he says. Michael says he has a degree in music education from Oklahoma State. He went out to California to be a high school band director. The audio picks up from there. You miss about 20 seconds of Michael talking. Also, Michael’s line cuts out a couple times. Bear with it. He comes back quickly each time.)
Michael T. Ryan, supervising music editor for all three Mighty Ducks films, joins the show and talks about how he ended up there. He explains what parts he’s particularly proud of and the gift he got for being one of the few to survive all three films.
Here is Michael T. Ryan’s IMDB.

Here are some of Michael’s favorite pieces of work that aren’t an obvious: 101 Dalmatians. A sampling:
Others: Holy Man, Source Code, Sherlock Gnomes.
Here is the opening score for Source Code:
Sneaky Pete is a good show. It has a 93 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
Thanks to @bberg19 for the #QuackQuestion:
The “We Will Quack You” sequence in D2 has kind of weird audio, almost like you realized how lame it was and tried to bury the chant behind the Queen song. Is that how it actually went down?

We Will Quack You up on the electronic board:
The musical moments for each new player that Michael established:
Here is work on SEAL TEAM on CBS as well as in the kids movie Sherlock Gnomes. It’s got a fun soundtrack.
