F. Douglas Garron, 85

WESTON

"I'll Be Blasting You" -- Remember that song? It was the theme song of the old "Major Mudd" show on Channel 7.

For a lot of people, the song is a passport to days gone by.

F. Douglas Garron of Weston and Edgartown, the man who wrote the song, has died, the Globe reports in an obituary today.

His wife remembers him as a man of "incredible charm" who made faces light up when he performed for children at Children's Hospital and Boston Shriners Hospital.
