If you have ever asked, ‘What is the QUOTE ... UNQUOTE signature tune?’ and wondered if you could get hold of a copy, there is after all these years, both good and bad news. 

Entitled DUDDLY DELL, written and performed by Dudley Moore, it was the B-side of his single STRICTLY FOR THE BIRDS (Parlophone 45R 4772) in 1961.

For years, when people asked me what it was, I had to tell them the record was no longer available.  Now it is quite widely available, for example on the CD entitled FROM BEYOND THE FRINGE.

If you are still very keen, I might even be able to let you see the sheet music.
