Medley of themes from TV Westerns

October 19, 2022 --

Arthur Fiedler's Boston Pops was known for medleys based on unusual themes. For example, one medley played by the Pops under the baton of Maestro Fiedler was based on the music of television commercials.

(Alas, LPR has been unable to find this medley.)

This link offers a medley of the themes from television westerns. The medley starts off with Home on the Range, which leads to the themes from these tv westerns: Bonanza, Maverick, The Rebel, Bat Masterson, Gunsmoke, Wagon Train, Wyatt Earp, ending with Have Gun Will Travel.

The inimitable Richard Hayman is the arranger of this medley. (Are there any westerns on TV, anymore?)
