Radio and TV production music library Beds and Beats has hired television theme writers Dan McGrath and Josh Phillips to make its 70th album.

The new album, called Strictly Light Entertainment, has audio beds ranging from dance offs and TV quiz shows, to light hearted Saturday night TV themes.

Writers Dan and Josh are known for TV themes such as Strictly Come Dancing, Take Me Out, Alan Carr Chatty Man, All Star Mr and Mrs, Shooting Stars and Friday night with Jonathon Ross. The tracks mix contemporary recording techniques with the brass playing talents of Johnny Thirkell, Nigel Hitchcock, Neil Sidwell and Simon Gardner.
