Ray Martin’s March­ing Strings: Hav­ing nar­rowly es­caped from the Nazis, Ray Martin be­came one of the big­gest names in Bri­tish pop­u­lar mu­sic, reg­u­larly con­duct­ing his own orches­tra on ra­dio and tele­vi­sion. He also com­posed many catchy melodies in­clud­ing March­ing Strings, the well- known theme tune to Top of the Form. Never with­out a smile on his face he lit up the na­tion with his allem­brac­ing and at­trac­tive mu­sic. Code: C159 Code: C161
