Earle Hagen, RIP

The composer of theme songs for "The Andy Griffith Show," "The Dick Van Dyke Show," "Gomer Pyle, USMC," "The Mod Squad," and other fine television programs has been taken by me to Valhalla.

Earle Hagen did some amazing stuff, with his background coming in the jazz ness His obituary in WaPo and his obituary at NyTimes can be read to learn more.

NOW try to get those songs out of your head . . . .
