Camper, you may be older than shyt, but as I tell my coworkers, my first project out of college was to invent dirt.

Regarding that masked man, I have a record of the first Lone Ranger radio broadcast, as well as several others, including Superman, The Shadow, Amos 'n' Andy, and more.

The "Theater of the Mind" was a lot of fun, but it required you to pay attention.

Man, this has turned into the thread of old farts. . .<dodges tomato being thrown>

Just kidding you guys! I may be slightly younger than you, but my dad exposed me to all of the things you are mentioning, so I guess you could say I'm cultured. ;)

I remember watching the Lone Ranger and the first concert my parents took me the orchestra played W.Tell, something I knew at the age of 5. My mom says I loved Burns and Allen (still do) and the Mickey Mouse Club. Thank heaven for TVland.

My girls love old radio shows, and this weekend my youngest (age 15) was laughing hysterically over the Marx Brothers marathon on TCM. We won't discuss the high school senior and her crush on Gene Kelly.

Hi Camper. Are you seriously asking about the Hitchcock music?

I commend the imagination and the research involved in the Reid chronology, BUT -------

Camper,

I really am under 30 decimeters tall. You didn't specify 30 years of chronoligical age, so I'm taking the legal way out.

I do know the Hitchcock music, but I'll refrain from giving it away [biting tongue icon].

I think Bernard Hermann did the scores for most of his films. I think Camper is referring to the TV series, which featured a classical piece as the theme music, which should be as familiar to listeners to B.com listeners as Puffing Billy is to Captain Kangaroo fans.

"Good evening."

I know the answer, although I don't fit the desired demographic.

However, my first PC came with a music file that played the piece in question, so maybe some twentysomethings might be able to remember DOS2 and what passed for cool aps in those days.

And the answer is:
Funeral March of the Marionettes by Gunoud <sp> was the theme music for the Alfred Hitchcock TV series.

OK, I'm done.. can anyone think of another old TV or radio show theme derived from the classical music library?

How about The Big Story? That was from black & white TV days involving investigative journalism. Each program was a dramatized account of a reporter's tenacious quest to uncover a crime. Too bad it never made reruns (as far as I know). The music was truly "heroic".
