STAR TREK, PERRY MASON, GUNSMOKE Composer Fred Steiner Dies (1923-2011)

(From Ain't It Cool News)

ScoreKeeper here with news of the passing of Fred Steiner. There are different degrees of celebrity. Most film and television composers, while not known personally or perhaps even by name, are very well known by their work. This can be said of the prolific and talented Fred Steiner. If you read Ain't It Cool News chances are high that his music has touched your life in some way.

As one of the most prolific television composers in the business, Steiner is most regarded for his theme for PERRY MASON (1962-1966) as well as his episodic scores for hit TV series' including GUNSMOKE (1960-1965), RAWHIDE (1961-1964), ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE (1961-1964), and HOGAN'S HEROES (1965-1966),

As many shows as Steiner was attached to, the twenty-five episodes of STAR TREK (1966-1967) he composed and conducted music for, earn him his star on the Geek Walk of Fame.

On behalf of Ain't It Cool News I'd like to extend condelences to the Steiner family. May his music live forever!

Doggone It! LLOYD PITTS Is On "The Tonight Show With JAY LENO"!!

Spanish Fort's own LLOYD PITTS, my brother-in-law, appeared last night on JAY LENO and won a FREE MEAL for baying like a hound dog!

Accompanied by his lovely wife Gwen, their equally lovely daughter Hannah, and the beautiful and charming Clarissa Povenmire (wife of the famous DAN of "Phineas & Ferb" fame), Lloyd barked his way across America and into millions of homes!
Jonah, LLP's son, was sequestered in "The Green Room", probably due to leash laws...
I couldn't be more proud!
