I don't recall the theme unless you are referring to the track he used as bed music with congas, cowbells & other percussion. (That's one I would like info on myself!!)Snippets I do recall are that he used the middle section of "Those Lonely Lonely Nights" by Dr John as a blues link & "Samba de Sausalito" by Santana as bed music. The intro to Roy Head's "Treat Her Right" was used as an R'n'B link while the jingle "Meanwhile, back in ... Read More

Hi I have been after for a long time the theme to the David Simmons Saturday Soul Show. I have heard clips of the piece on TV. It has been eluding me ever since the programme was on air so about 40 years.
I would be grateful if someone could please assist me with the Title/ArtistThankyou

David Simmons had a phone in on Radio London in the 70s which I used to listen to as a school boy and he played a jazz track in the intro (featuring a piano, drums, bass) on every show. Does anyone know what the tune/artist was? I remember really liking it, perhaps even more than the phone-in. I wrote into him and he sent it to me in very bad quality on a cassette which I lost many years ago but I'd love to rediscover it. firstname.lastname@example.org
