Pat Meikle's husband, Hal Cooper, produced the program. He went on to direct "Search for Tomorrow" and prime time shows including "Maude." Pat died in the 1970s. Hal died in 2014 at 91.
In 2011 I wrote asking if he could tell me the name of the theme. Hal replied the budget was so low, they picked something from a recorded music library. Didn't recall the title. Later learned it was "Countryside Caprice," but was never able to find a recording. I can still hum it.
I watched an episode at The Museum of Radio and Television (now Paley Center) on West 52nd Street in Manhattan. Brought back great memories.
