Only 156 days until March 16, 2012. That’s when AMC’s “Mad Men” returns to television after nearly a year and a half off the cablewaves. It’s a fine TV program, sure, but what we really miss is RJD2’s indelible theme music that kicks off every episode with the frisson of a dozen Bond themes.
With RJD2 performing at the 9:30 Club tonight, we decided to re-link an interview from 2010 where the hip-hop producer spoke about “Mad Men” and his affinity for old-school television tunes. “I grew up with ‘Knight Rider’ and ‘Airwolf’ and ‘The Price Is Right’ and the ‘Scooby-Doo’ theme,” he told Click Track last year. “There’s some amazing music that was written for TV back in those days.”
