From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Frank Gari (born in New York City on April 1, 1942) is a popular singer and songwriter from the late 1950s and early 1960s. His best known songs where he was a performer are Princess, Utopia and Lullaby Of Love. He co-wrote with Roger McGuinn the song Beach Ball for Bobby Darin. Gari and McGuinn appeared on the 1963 record billed as the City Surfers.

Gari is best known today as a jingle writer for television and radio stations. Gari is also one of the most sought after composers of music for television newscasts in America. His first television theme and image campaign was the popular Catch 5, originally written for WEWS-TV in Cleveland.

Gari also has international acclaim; in 1993 he composed the theme for Sky Television in Europe. Sky used The Great News Package from 1989 (when they launched their four-channel Astra lineup) until 1995. The Sky signature from the 1990s was not only found in the news theme, but also spread to all the Sky channels, including Sky One, Sky Movies, and the defunct Sky Soap and Sky Movies Gold. The signature was combined with Great News for Sky's 1990s look. You can listen in at their respective sites on two of Britain's television presentation sites (see External Links)
