"My Favorite Martian" (CBS TV show theme and incidental music), 1963-66

The incidental music was some of the most challenging music Paul Tanner recorded on the Electro-Theremin. As Tanner states, "My Favorite Martian stuff always had great skips in the music - easy for George Greely, the composer, he played piano".
