    Default Search for a song title

    I posted this a few years ago. A tune which I thought was perhaps a theme tune to a radio show when I was a kid. I canít find the original post, but the tune is instrumental and has a whistle sound a bit like ĎDo the Hustleí Iíd never heard it since I was a kid until today! Iím in Spain and it came on the radio. Unfortunately a station with no commentary so I still donít know the name of the tune, but it would suggest that it might have been a released record rather than just a theme tune. I still think it might have been adopted by a radio show as a theme / incidental music. Any ideas? When I heard it as a kid on the radio show it was early 80ís.

    There was a Saturday morning programme on BBC Radio 4 called Home Truths which was presented by the late John Peel, and I believe that had the theme tune that was Van McCoy's 1977 hit The Shuffle (not The Hustle), although that was a lot more recent than the early 1980s if that helps.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    BINGO! It is indeed The Shuffle! Although quite why I have never come across this tune for about 35 years is a mystery! There are comments on YouTube about it being the theme tune to Sport on 4 which was on the radio on Saturday mornings in the early 80ís which completely matches my memories.
