Discovered composers & publishers of music themes

Recommended Posts

I came across this video from CFRN-TV in Edmonton on YouTube and it was recorded back in 1984. The Skate Canada promo seen at the beginning features some music that sounds Frank Gari-esque. Anyone willing to chime in?

A few months ago a January 2001 WBTV newscast popped up using “Right Here, Right Now”, long before KFMB debuted it (they still had “Impact” as late as July):

 

From what I’m guessing, possibly WBTV commissioned RHRN instead of KFMB.

I think KFMB commissioned the image, if not the news too - it's possible that 615 was syndicating it before KFMB started using it.

True... KFMB's slogan was "Right Here, Right Now" when they were using Impact.

Yup, found that while digging through libraries... Sonoton is a new library to the NMSA, I believe. It is a European library, so it wouldn't have seen so much use stateside. (Other notable Euro libraries include DeWolfe and Music House.)

 

It's not a theme, but the stings that KSAT used in its famous last names open are also in this library as "Mega Cut A7". "Mega Cut A1" was used as the headline bed at the end of the open. I can't find the swoosh.

 

They even used Newscast A for the close:

I Guess WKCF was one of the lucky ones.

Someone commented on my KATU news open video and said the news theme shown here was also used on Channel in the UK back in the 1970s. I sense this is production music.

Double post, but I already found it thanks to a tip on the Channel video I'd overlooked. It appears to be a KPM track, Superstar Fanfare (or just Superstar depending on the version). Oddly enough, while the logo sounds right, I couldn't seem to find the version KATU seems to have used. I did, however, find one that

The singers give me a very Dallas-esque vibe, almost like a JAM piece - which I suppose could be another point for Conner as well.

That is definitely the Cue11 Total News — though I never knew they had used it prior to changing logos. The music bed is from that package and is closer to the use KAPP/KVEW gave it.

Since we just discovered KETV using KSNW’s 1985 theme, I’m gonna guess it’s a VTS or Tuesday track. Though it could be production music as well...

That is from the AirCraft library, which the NMSA for some reason cites as Soundtrack. The AirCraft site also has the long cuts of the pieces from them.

 

The Visionary is on CD ACL-032 "Image Makers II". Other common tracks from this library are on ACL-011 "Image Makers", like The Leading Edge, News Breakers and Always a New Horizon.

 

ACL-040 has some political tracks that got used and have NMSA entries, and there are a couple of other 90s tracks I think saw some use in sports.
