It’s clear that we are now beyond the golden age of television themes, but these musical snippets live on forever as muzak, in commercials, through endless reruns, and – once you’ve been reminded of them – brain worms. This class features themes from the first 50 years of TV, including music from well-known as well as lesser-known composers, classical lifts, and themes which have become songs in their own right.

Jane Ellen shares her eclectic interests with Oasis audiences from her island home on Florida’s Space Coast. Specializing in music and entertainment history, she especially enjoys exploring the artist behind the art. Jane’s presentations benefit from her gifts as a storyteller, independent scholar, performer, and composer.
