The Brakeman Bill Theme Song
I thought it would be nice to accompany the Brakeman Bill McLain story with his theme song. I met Bill at a gathering honoring J.P. Patches at the unveiling of the J.P Patches and Gertrude statue in the Fremont district. I had to a chance to meet and visit with Bill and one of the things I asked was what was the name of his theme song. It was a French Movie soundtrack. He said he had the album and would like it on CD. I suggested he mail the LP to me and I would do the transfer. He did and I transferred the whole LP. He told me that he and Warren Reed, The Crazy Donkey, decided on the theme. It was about 30 seconds into the track. I am attaching the Brakeman Bill Theme. By the way, Bill enjoyed doing watercolor art and he sent me a Thank You card with a seascape that he personally painted and signed. I have it framed. He was quite a pleasant gentleman. A real pleasure meeting him. – Mr. Music Man, Duane Smart
