I have Netflix and have been watching the "Dragnet" series and they even have part of the 1950's series.  I was surprised to see "Walter Schumann" in the credits for the Dragnet Theme.

I have the 1955 album "The Voices of Christmas" The Voices of Walter Schumann on RCA Records LPM-1141 and The Christmas Voices Of Walter Schumann Pickwick Records SPCX-1003 that was released sometime during the 1970's.

I am just curious if Walther Schumann did any other TV Theme Songs or had other albums that might be of interest to be added to my collection?

Susan,

That Pickwick album you have is a reissue of Walter Schumann's 1951 Capitol Records LP, Christmas In The Air.

And yes, Walter Schumann did indeed compose the theme music for a couple of other TV series, but the most famous by far was for the classic Dragnet series starring Jack Webb.

Chip,

Yes, I do realize that the Pickwick release was a reissue of the original 1951 album, I should've mentioned that in my previous post.  I also forgot to mention that I have the original "Christmas In The Air" from 1951 too. I just didn't have it cataloged on my computer.

Thanks for your help.
