The Oncoming (Electric) Storm

White Light/White Heat

Delia Derbyshire created the original version of the Doctor Who theme tune in August 1963, from Ron Grainer’s composition.

Ron Grainer was so impressed he tried to get a co-composer credit for her, but without success as the BBC would not agree.

Delia was also in a band in the sixties, White Noise – whose debut album was rereleased last week, (link to review).
