Randy and his Aircast team gave us exactly what we were looking for – something exciting, powerful and attention getting to set the tone for our broadcasts.
North Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) October 04, 2011
The Grand Ole Opry will be returning to the airwaves this fall with a new theme, developed by Megatrax Production Music’s custom scoring division, Aircast Custom Music. The themed broadcasts can be seen on Great American Country (GAC) on television and heard syndicated on the Westwood One Radio Network beginning this month.
Says Randy Hart, Creative Services Director for Aircast: “It is an honor to be asked to produce a theme package for an icon like the Grand Ole Opry. For their relaunch on television they wanted a high energy, contemporary-sounding piece, primarily guitar based, that had an identifiable sound or logo with which they could brand, and that’s what they got.”
Pete Fisher, the VP/GM of the Opry says, “Randy and his Aircast team gave us exactly what we were looking for – something exciting, powerful and attention getting to set the tone for our broadcasts.”
The Grand Ole Opry is known world-wide as the show that made country music famous. Hear the new theme now on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/user/aircastcsd#p/u/0/rlg4RUEh0-A
In addition to custom scoring for all television, film, radio and commercials, Aircast offers packages for television and radio news programs and has recently started representing Jerome Gilmer’s NewsMusic Central, a product offering that has become a standard in the news music industry.
