Sam Spence


Samuel Lloyd Spence is an American soundtrack composer best known for his work with NFL Films. A former USC music instructor living and working in Munich, Spence was hired in 1966 to score the hyperromanticized mini-documentaries that conveyed NFL highlights and personalities to fans in the network-television era. Spence's bombastic music cues combined with the baritone voice of John Facenda to remarkable artistic effect, and he can arguably be credited with a significant role in making American football the top professional sport in the U.S.
