Al shares vintage RAE theme

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Al Quaglieri, who writes:

In the ’60s and ’70s, RAE had a really evocative theme song that opened and closed their broadcasts. For years I searched for a copy of this, even going as far as writing the station about ten years ago. They graciously obliged, sending me a recording of the LATER theme, not the one I wanted. Well, here it finally is. RAE used an edited-down version.

My clip begins with a vintage RAE open and close, and then the song! It’s an obscure composition by Argentine composer Waldo de los Rios, entitled “Sol Alegre,” from a 1957 Columbia album called “Kiss of Fire.” Hope it brings back some memories!

Thanks for this stroll down Memory Lane, Al!

    Thanks for sharing the audio clip, Al, and good to see your name in print again! Weren’t you active in SPEEDX back in the 1980s-90s? Or maybe it was the NASWA club? 73!
