Skip to comments.Sean Hannity bumper music
Posted on 01/14/2011 11:24:55 PM PST by TJC
When listening to the Sean Hannity show online, during breaks there was an instrumental patriotic piece, sounds a little "Irish" with flute and drums. Would like to know name/artist.
Can you hum a few bars?
Here, let me try to hum some:
Hope that helped.
I’m guessing it isn’t “Why Don’t We Do It In The Road.”
Is there a pattern as to when it’s used? First, second, third quarter?
Forgot to ask, radio show or TV show?
Boy. You guys are fast.
(And not helpful at all.)
I’ve heard him use Entr’acte from the Patton (movie) Sound Track ... is that it?
Here’s a link where you can listen to see if that is the right song..... http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/patton-soundtrack-from-motion/id251915745
I can be even less helpful.
I don’t listen to Hannity because I can’t stand bumper music that’s excerpted.
Sean is just a TunePimp.
Email the producer - or call during the show and ask the screener how you can find out. They might even put you on the air with the question... It won’t the first time someone has asked them, I’m sure. I emailed the same question to Dennis Prager in 2004. Not only did I find the bumper music, but I got it sent to me directly from the composer in the UK, Francis Monkman. Francis didn’t even know his tune was being used as a bumper on a US show.
Do you have a link that contains the music you can’t identify?
Whatever it is it must be something that matches Seans personality...dull.
Can’t swear to it but it might be an Irish group that’s been around for a while called “The Wolftones’’.
I used to have the Wolfetones on one of those black vinyl plate things that spun around. Very political.
“Black vinyl plate things’’. You’re kidding right? You mean a 33 and a third vinyl long-play record? :-) BTW , the Irish poet Wolf Tone was very political.
No I wish I did. They stopped playing it and I never recorded it.
Radio show streaming on internet
No but thanks. Can not believe it is this hard to find it!
I did hear that they may be the same. I am going through the Heritage clips to see if I hear it.
Thanks, I did that. I am waiting for an answer ....
Thanks, I thought it was more likely to be the radio, but I had to make sure. Nothing comes to mind, but I thought I’d record a show and check it out and will let you know if I can recognize the music.
I had a similarly frustrating experience with a song on Laura Ingraham’s show; only it was a recent song that I’d heard on the radio. Do you know how often radio dj’s don’t identify a song and/or the performers nowadays? It’s as if they don’t care about selling the music anymore. After searching the samples on the various online music stores, I finally heard one word of the title and finally found it, so there’s hope.
Yes, I was kidding. I’m 44 years old; when I was a young girl, we had 45s and a few 78s, and the machine that played them was the size of a top-loading freezer.
And yes, I knew about the poet Wolfe Tone.
Well duh, don’t I look silly.(I’m 54). True story. A couple of years ago a buddy of mine told me his then 18 year-old son was looking around in their attic and he came down with one of his dads 33’s(I think it was a Led Zepplin record) he said “Dad, what’s this? My friend had to explain to his son what a vinyl record was!
I went for a number of years, back in the late 80s/early 90s, without buying any new music. One day I decided I wanted a record, so I walked up the road to a music store and started looking around, but all they had were CDs. I asked a young employee with a pierced nose if they had record albums, and he said, “What?” “Record albums, those round, black things about the size of a dinner plate.” The youth said, “We don’t sell those. Try a used book store!”
My son still plays my albums
Cool. What kind of a turn table do you have and where do you get a replacement needle if you need one?
Kind of dates you, doesn’t it? I had a similar reaction when one of my nieces jumped up to to grab the tv remote and without thinking I said ‘’Don’t touch that dial!’’ Well, the wind-up is old gray-haired, spectacle warning uncle had to explain to my 12 year-old niece what a tv ‘’dial’’ was and how we had to change channels in ‘’the old days’’!
Another thing that’s funny is that little children don’t recognize the shape of a telephone handset from “our” era. There are old toy telephones around, and they have no idea what they are. Anything small and rectangular can be a telephone or a remote control. My kids call them all “beebers” ;-).
I have a Technics SL-D2 and Sansui P-D30. I also have Technics SL table on reserve.
I haven’t needed a new cartridge yet.
Awesome. I had an Onkyo (sp?) turntable. It’s in the attic somewhere.
The song I think you are referring to is “The way it is” by Bruce Hornsby
