Theme from Hogan’s Heroes

February 5, 2017 at 4:02 pm Leave a comment

“Hogan’s Heroes”, a highly improbable comedy series set in a WWII German POW camp, debuted in 1965 and stayed on the air until 1971.

The actors who played the four major German roles—Werner Klemperer (Klink), John Banner (Schultz), Leon Askin (Burkhalter), and Howard Caine (Hochstetter)—were Jewish. Furthermore, Klemperer, Banner, and Askin had all fled the Nazis during World War II. Werner Klemperer was the son of the great conductor Otto Klemperer and was an accomplished musician in his own right.

The theme music for Hogan’s Heroes was composed by Jerry Fielding. Fielding was a successful TV composer whose credits include the Star Trek episode “The Trouble with Tribbles”.

My arrangement is an instrumental guitar rock setting featuring a snare-drum driven march and a rockabilly solo break in the middle.
