Here's the "Ship Ahoy!" theme song (my upload). Anyone know the name?

That's it!
The reason Ship Ahoy! holds a special (though very vague) memory was not only did I watch it all the time but my mother actually took me down there to audition for the show (didn't make it).

I can still hear the show's theme song - a catchy tune in the style of Leroy Anderson - but I cannot recall its name. Any idea?

"Ship Ahoy"was a live musical review that featured
an adult performer..who played a Commadore and
had a crew of kids performing musical numbers.
  
    The series was seen on sunday mornings on
WCBS TV Ch.2 in NYC during the early 1950's.

Anyone recall an early 1950's NewYork children's TV show called "Ship Ahoy!"?
It had a very brief run. Ray Forrest may have been the host.

--edit: he wasn't, at least according to Wiki.
It was sort of a talent show for kids with a nautical theme about it.
Amazing how I remember this show yet nobody else I've ever asked does!
