Out On Blue Six : George Martin

I'm surprised I haven't shared this before given my romantic idea behind the Out On Blue Six posts.

Theme One by The Beatles producer George Martin was the theme tune for Radio 1 and heralded the start and close of the broadcasting day from 1967 until it was phased out in the mid '70s. I heard it again just the other day on Ken Bruce's Radio 2 show and felt compelled to share it here. I love that it is full of delicious pomp, that it has a clear retro futuristic sound and vibe.

  1. Nice, sounds like a synthesizer mixed with the orchestral parts. I'm too young to remember although my dad probably knows it.
