Fred Steiner, RIP

Not Steiner's most impressive bit of music for a television program -- he's best known for scoring a ton of episodes of the original STAR TREK and almost all of PERRY MASON -- but it's one of my favorites; here's John Frankenheimer & Rod Serling's slightly a bit too on-the-nose but still hard-hitting teleplay from from PLAYHOUSE 90, "The Comedian." Enjoy:

Also RIP, Peter Falk and Gene Colan. The reports of jazz trumpeter/SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK voice Jack Sheldon's death, however, have been thankfully exaggerated.
