Legendary Air-Edel composer Roger Greenaway was interviewed on BBC1‘s ‘The One Show’ last night! During his feature Roger performs several of his much-loved jingles, many of which continued to be used decades after their first airing.
Roger is one of the world’s most successful commercial songwriters. Over a period of nearly 20 years, he and his partner Roger Cook have written more than 50 hits – including the classic ‘I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing’ – and collected 11 gold discs, 17 silver discs and a double platinum disc which they earned for their work on the Sean Cassidy album. Among his other well known works are music for British Gas ‘Cookability’, Mars, Nescafe, Milk, Avon, Cinzano, Canada Dry, Duckhams Oil and Asda. In 2003 Roger co-wrote a charity single in aid of ‘Tickled Pink’, an organisation that promotes breast cancer awareness. Louise Redknapp performed the single.
