RC Cates is another former GH-er I just noticed from the list as well...

He still composing for GH too.

Example of Marty's greatness:

Wow, didn't know that. He and Marty should compose for OLTL as well then LOL, I've always thought they had the weakest background music of the ABC soaps and the most generic.

I wonder what happened. Did JFP stupidly fire him or did JHC steal him away?

JFP is notorious for reworking scoring and background music on the soaps she works for. I'm surprised he stayed there as long as he did with her as his boss.

Was it Shelly Curtis who hied him at GH? I notice Corday and Langan went fire crazy in the early 90's and Curtis, Davich, and Francesca James all went over to GH.

I LOVED Carly's theme as well. They occasionally play this background music from time to time now, but I've noticed that they've chopped it up so badly.

I actually love OLTL's BG music because it's so dark and gothic. David Nichtern and Lee Holdridge have been there since 1992. I love them!

That's no surprise. She used to be a music supervisor for GH (70's) and SB (early 80's)

Yeah, it was probably Shelley. He arrived in 1993. I also have him at DAYS in 1994.

One of the best themes ever!

Oh you're right. Now they just play the beginning part of that.
