“Bumpers” is a term in TV for music coming in and out of commercial breaks. What I liked about being bandleader on a TV show was creating “moods”. We had 2 shows with Naomi Judd in a row what a beautiful lady. She had a very serious Illness that made her end the famous act she had with her daughter. I would look at her face as she was telling these stories to Suzanne and make up music that would match the mood I was seeing not to break that mood for the audience going into a commercial break.
