Biography

Peter Clarence “Pete” Carpenter (1 April 1914–18 October 1987), was an American jazz , musical , and a veteran of television theme song scoring. Carpenter started writing the music for television on shows like Bewitched (1964), Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. (1964), and The Andy Griffith Show (1966–1967).

His collaboration with Mike Post, which began in 1968, lasted until Carpenter’s death. The two saw some success when they wrote the theme for producer Stephen J. Cannell’s first show, the police detective drama Toma in 1973. But their big breakthrough was the top 10 Billboard hit and Grammy Award-winning theme for Cannell’s private detective drama The Rockford Files in 1974, starring James Garner.
