Like Roger, back in 1999, I'd never heard this theme that everybody supposedly knows. (I'm not a snob. The flickering of TV bothers my bad eyes and my poor, migraine-prone brain.)
Anyhow, I followed his link, and I made a MIDI file of the tune, composing a nice easy alto part to it for our beginners. If anybody wants the MIDI, I will send it to Joe for posting.
I think it would be fun to play this at a nursing home to get people talking. Announce that it is 'Days of 49' and see if anybody recognizes it from the TV show.
