About this site…

My grandfather, Wade Denning, composed and arranged music for a variety of brands, commercials, tv shows, and his own albums.  You might recognize some of the music on this site; the Maxwell House theme, the H-A-LL-O-W-EE-N song that lots of kids grew up singing.  Before he passed away in 2007, he complied these clips from reels and reels of music in his basement.  Quality isn’t great in some cases, and there’s a blip in one of the videos where it looks like he tried to record the evening news, but it’s all generally awesome stuff.  Oh, and I don’t pretend to own any of this, or know anything about copyright – leave comment if you’d like something removed and have a valid reason.
