Today's tv theme song that describes the show stays in the early years of a young America. Like yesterday's theme song, this one was also sung by The Ken Darby Singers. The show is The Adventures of Jim Bowie. The show aired from 1956 to 1958 and starred Scott Forbes as Jim Bowie. It was set during the settling of the Louisana purchase in the 1830's that Jim Bowie would have a special knife made to help protect himself from the wild animals he encountered in his travels. In real life Jim Bowie would die at the battle of the Alamo along with William Travis and Davy Crockett.
With The Sandpipers, Mitch Miller And Orchestra. From the Golden LP Hooray For Cowboys, released circa 1964. Originally from the Golden EP, released in 1957.

Robert Klein used to do a routine in his stand-up where he’d discuss going into a hotel and turning on the TV, finding a show he’d never seen before. “But, luckily, the theme song explains everything!”) (Then he’d sing, “Sixty minutes, that’s what we have....” )
