'Summer Samba' a 1966 Brazilian tune by the brilliantly-named Walter Wanderley.

It reminds me of the organ solo in Friday Night and by a nice coincidence, it even says 'Jet Set' at the introduction to the video.

'The Indoor League' theme tune.

I didn't get the programme itself but always liked the opening theme!

A cheeky tune that sounds like it could be the intro of some 1970s ITV British sitcom.

Some nice Hammond from 44 seconds in from Keith Mansfield. Mr Mansfield wrote many a good theme tune!

Count Ossie & Leslie Butler - Soul Drums

Rasta drums meets jazz organist. It's a version of the song 'It Was A Very Good Year' (a fitting anthem for 2020?!), sung by Frank Sinatra and also appeared in The Sopranos. Jerry also played another version of it on his Radio 6 show.

Monkey Spanner - Dave and Ansel Collins.

One of the quirkiest and best early reggae instrumentals. Used to be on an advert for Spangles.
