Earlier this week, I posted that Earle Hagen, TV theme composer behind the Andy Grffith Show (aka The Fishin' Hole), Mod Squad, and other classics, passed away. Hagen also wrote the classic Big Band tune Harlem Nocturne, heard in the the Mike Hammer TV show and covered by about a gazillion other musicians. Of those gazillion, WFMU has compiled 42 of the Harlem Nocturne covers for your listening pleasure.
