Instrumental hits music on the radio

Instrumental hits is a music genre that is characterized by songs without lyrics or vocals. Instead, the emphasis is on the melody, rhythm, and harmony of the music. The genre emerged in the 1950s and became popular in the 1960s and 1970s, with artists like Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, the Ventures, and Henry Mancini.

Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass are among the most popular instrumental hits artists, with hits such as "A Taste of Honey" and "Spanish Flea." Their music is a blend of jazz, Latin, and pop, and their distinctive sound is created through the use of trumpets and other brass instruments.

The Ventures are another iconic instrumental hits band, known for their surf rock sound. Their most famous songs include "Walk Don't Run" and "Hawaii Five-O," which became the theme song for the television show of the same name.

Henry Mancini is a composer and arranger who is famous for his work on film and television scores. His most famous instrumental hits include "The Pink Panther Theme" and "Moon River," which won an Academy Award for Best Original Song.
