Crashbox was one of my favorite HBO Family shows growing up.
Mine, too. I remember liking "A Little Curious" as well, but after looking back, I prefer "Crashbox", because it's got an all-ages feel to it, opposed to ALC, which clearly is designed for little kids ages 2-5 (although ALC does has a decent theme tune, courtesy the great Pat Irwin!).

The intro music for Lens McCracken is “Thunderbird” by Johnny Pearson.


Anyone know the name of the "Ear We Are" opening track? Sounds very archival but IDK which track it is, and what of APM's sub-libraries it's from.
Ear We Are’s intro is “Nautical Theme” by Clive Richardson, which is actually on the same album as the Haunted House Party track mentioned above.

The music for Think Tank is “Ghost City” by Barry Morgan.

Another track I found is “Cartoon Brigade A” by Otto Sieben, used in the final Radio Scramble sketch for a song about “dwownis”, I mean, “windows”.

If anyone can find the Distraction News theme, let us know.
I’ve been searching all over for that on the APM site, under every possible category, but no luck.

However, I did find a KPM album called “History of Rock and Roll 1955-1965” that seems to have most of the Radio Scramble songs on it. These include...

“Let Me Baby”: used for “kalbstable” and “arrbywerst”.
“Rock and Roll Crazy”: used for “dab habert”, “stindet” and “ghitt thross”.
“You Must Be An Angel”: used for “ugpink”, “dryko”, and “lempip”.
“Faithful And True”: used for “tedubath”.
“So Shy”: used for “rabrily”.
“Another Lover”: used for “snupate”.
“It’s My Baby”: used for “chilument”.

These were all composed by Richard Myhill.

Some other Radio Scramble tracks I found include...

“King Conga” by Dennis Farnon: used for “sitruf”.
“Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” by Richard Harvey: used for “trestasm”.

I’m still trying to find the tracks they used for “facriatee”, “kencich”, “ransotatu”, and “yedmatin”, among others.

Thanks so much, Jared!
PS: Do you think the "Distraction News" theme might actually be an original composition? I've found an entry on the BMI database for "Crashbox- BG Cues" by Mark Boccaccio and published by "Nuzzle Me Music" that might be that. If not that, than maybe the "Mug Shots" track? I have an inkling that might not be from APM.
