Composers Marilyn Harris & Mark Wolfram

Well known composing team creates original music for BBC-5's popular American import MILFORD-HAVEN, U.S.A., an original radio soap opera.

When listeners find themselves humming a familiar tune, it's probably the theme music for Milford-Haven. As haunting as their theme music is, Harris and Wolfram also provide the lilting, the suspenseful, the emotional, the romantic, and the saucy sting notes throughout the show, underscoring all the dramatic action and linking one scene with the next.

Before working together on the music for Milford-Haven, Mark and Marilyn collaborated on many commercial and artistic projects, such as Interludes for Trumpet and Percussion which is performed in concert halls internationally. Together Mark and Marilyn have composed, performed and produced over 200 music cues for ABC-TV's General Hospital and scored episodes of the Hanna-Barbera animated Flintstone Kids.

Before their scoring career hit full stride, Marilyn and Mark literally wrote the book on "jingles", the all-important music which sells America's products. Their book "Getting Into The Jingle Business" is the best known book on the subject, and their commercial music has been heard from coast to coast in every kind of ad from Yoplait Yogurt to Chrysler's Le Baron.

One of the best places to hear their distinctive sound is to tune in to.. Milford-Haven, U.S.A.
