JINGLE COMPOSER HAS DIED AT 87

Richard D. Trentlage

(FoxNews) – The man who got generations of hot dog lovers humming
along to the Oscar Mayer Wiener song has died.

According to an obituary posted online by a northern Illinois funeral home,
Richard Trentlage died on Sept. 21 at age 87.

His daughter Linda Bruun confirmed to the New York Times that the cause
of death was congestive heart failure.

Millions of Americans grew up humming along to Trentlage’s catchy tune:
“Oh, I wish I were an Oscar Mayer wiener.”

Trentlage, an advertising executive, reportedly came up with the jingle in
just an hour after learning that Oscar Mayer was in the market for a new
song to help sell its hot dogs. It debuted in the early 1960s and became
the meat company’s primary advertising jingle in over 20 English-speaking
countries around the world for half a century.

The song was retired in 2010, but has not been forgotten as plenty on
social media paid tribute to the songwriter with a post or Tweet.
