Mike Post - Television Theme Songs

Mike Post was born in San Fernando, California in 1945. He became a musician for acts as varied as Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Kenny Rogers, Sonny Bono and Cher, playing guitar on the latter team's 1965 hit "I Got You, Babe". Two years later, Post won his first Grammy award for producing and arranging the Mason Williams track "Classical Gas". Post's television career commenced when he was appointed musical director of"The Andy Williams Show" (1969), at the youthful age of 24. A later assignment, the cop show "Toma" (1973) introduced Post to producer Stephen J. Cannell, who hired him for the classic "The Rockford Files" (1974). The memorable theme became Post's first, but far from last, television instrumental to become a crossover radio hit, and earned him a Grammy. Often in collaboration with Pete Carpenter, Post has scored well over two thousand hours of both dramatic and comedic TV, most famously on "Hill Street Blues" (1981), "NYPD Blue" (1993) and his first Emmy winner, "Murder One" (1995)
