Question for all of you who remember that stinger (which was used on Group
W's other stations as well, in addition to being the stinger for RCA's old
TV ads): What was the name of it, and who recorded it?  My perception always
was that it must have come from some symphonic piece, though I didn't (and
don't) recognize it.
