When I was a kid the most exciting sound I would hear all week was the Hawaii Five-0 theme tune. This was partly because it meant the start of another episode of sun-kissed crime-solving and "Book 'em Danno"-ing. But also because that punchy, horn-driven surf-rocker is one of the great TV theme songs of all time. The track was by Seattle-based '60s act the Ventures, whose guitarist Bob Bogle passed away over the weekend at the age of 75.
