I was in the St. Louis area Thursday night and during the 10 PM news on KMOV-4, there was a commercial for McCarthy Pest Control which showed an animated ant crawling and a woman's voice saying "We have ants!".  Over that, I distinctly heard the opening theme from "It's Your Bet" playing.  I contacted the company to find out the name of that music, but they said it was KMOV who put the ad together, so I e-mailed them.  Haven't heard from them yet; I really want to know if this music is available on CD or record.  It has to be, as there have been excerpts from it also played during the spin-the-wheel segment of Live! With Regis & Kelly as it was called then.

I'm guessing it's stock music. Doubt anyone at the station would have a more concrete answer for you.

I'd agree; if it's just popping up at random it's likely that.

Found the Numberwang theme used the same way, in an AT&T commercial preceding the introduction of the sketch.
In a way I'm like a Sour Patch Kid. Sour, then sweet. So worry not, fair comrades. :)

The "Numberwang" music is from Dewolfe IIRC

Here is the info for the music

Both themes are found on: Chappell Dance & Mood Music Vol 02
by: Jack Arel & Jean-Claude Petit

"Window Shopping Party 2" (used for celebrity/turntable intro)
"Objective Rhythm" (used for main theme).

It would be great if now it were possible for the estate of Stan Worth to release all the music pieces used on It Takes Two and other Ralph Andrews games on CD.
