No, it's not the same song. The song that was played on LWT was Chariots of Fire by Ernie Watts.

I know the song that he is talking about, but I don't know its name.

This is the version that was used as the theme song of LWT. It was produced by Quincy Jones.


Ernie Watts - Chariots of Fire (1982).

This is the original. It was the theme song of a movie of the same name. The movie was about the Olympics and I remember that it was very long.

I think this is the second song that you were referring to.


naptu2:
This was definitely after the fire. It's the graphics, but no Chariots Of Fire.

LWT, December 26th, 1986.

jblaqq and Jaymichael, Tijuana Taxi is another of Herb Alpert's pieces used on some radio programmes in those days:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cK5pl6W2CFE

I am still trying to remember the programme.

Naptu2, do you?

These songs sparked my interest in Jazz (which I knew then as instrumentals).

Of course this thread can not be complete without a bit of Spyro Gyra. We had the vinyl album (bought in 1979), but I wasn't interested in it until the mid 1980s.


Then DBN Television made a lot of the songs popular in the mid and late 1990s because they used them in their adverts and idents.

Good morning. Did not grow up in the Southwest, but grew up in the North in the 80's...and this tune was very very familiar, especially as the local NTA station would play it before the start of transmissions while showing that famous rainbow test pattern.....

It's been quite a while since I heard it....and I did not know the name of the band, but now I do.

Thanks a lot.

Seems like Spyro Gyra is still active.(Wikipedia article)

Sounds like Telematch?
I think the programme involved contestants from different German cities competing against themselves??

Or could it be the Benny Hill show??
The horn riff sounds like something Benny Hill used on his comedy sketches?

The programme was called Headliners. I remember the song (it had a trumpet or saxophone lead), but I don't know its name.

It was usually shown at 7am (c1985 onwards) and they usually showed Canadian wrestling after it.

I HAVE FOUND IT!!

I was looking for the first song in this video and I found it and discovered that the OGTV song is also in the video. It is the 3rd song and the name is "Little Brown Jug".
