late night: "The Riviera Affair" by Neil Richardson

Composer Neil Richardson passed away a month ago, at the age of 80 years old. He was most famous for his library music; incidental music for use in films and television.

New Yorkers may remember "The Riviera affair", which was the opening theme music for WOR-TV's late-afternoon movie program (The 4 O'Clock Movie), in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

This brilliant theme was also used as part of an homage of "The 4 O'Clock Movie" in the opening logo sequence for the 2007 film, Ocean's Thirteen.
