Paul O'Grady Live! Remix

A new series of Paul O’Grady Live! starts tonight on ITV1.

The shows new director Kim Ross from Olga TV contacted us and asked if we could update the music for this series.

The brief was to keep the basic identity of the music, which the viewers now knew from the first series, but to give it a bit more of an ITV ‘saturday night’ feel.

Not the easiest thing to do in this case, as the original version was very much a traditional big band talk show style theme tune. However replacing the drums for a more contemporary sound, and rebalancing the general mix has bought it bang up to date.
