To commemorate the extraordinary life and career of comedian Don Rickles, who died today at age 90, I’m posting this TUBE TUNES TURBO TUNE episode about the TV series for which he’ll probably be best remembered: CPO SHARKEY, which ran on NBC from 1976 to 1978. The theme music for CPO SHARKEY was composed by Peter Matz, a veteran of THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW. I hope you enjoy this brief look at (and listen to) the theme music of a very funny show with a very funny man.
