After learning music at NY University’s University of Good Arts, he started employed in radio, an event that culminated in 1940 when he was employed to serve as musical movie director for The Henry Morgan Radio Display. Given his personal three-minute headlining i’m all over this each broadcast, Green launched some initial compositions that later on resurfaced on his LPs for RCA Victor. During his eight-year stint with Morgan, he also published and conducted ratings for the Dashiell Hammett-inspired “SYSTEM.DRAWING.BITMAP Man” in addition to “The Time clock,” which aired about ABC radio from 1946 to 1948. When “The Time clock” relocated to NBC tv in 1949, Green migrated towards the fledgling moderate aswell, and in 1952 was called musical movie director from the Wally Cox cult-classic Mr. Peepers. His additional tv gigs included Pulitzer Reward Playhouse, Adventure, AMERICA Metal Hour, and Caesar’s Hour.
