I remember once being on a station platform in Cleveland at four in the
morning. A black porter was carrying my bags, and as we were waiting for
the train to come in, he said to me: “Excuse me, Mr. Cooke, I don’t want to
invade your privacy, but I have a bet with a friend of mine. Who composed
the opening theme music of ‘Omnibus’? My friend said Virgil Thomson.” I
asked him, “What do you say?” He replied, “I say Aaron Copeland.” I said,
“You’re right.” The porter said, “I knew Thomson doesn’t write counterpoint
that way.” I told that to a network president, and he was deeply unimpressed.
