This chapter discusses oral history to account for the role of human agency in the changes in the film-music industry in Mumbai, India. It examines the videotaped interviews of several local musicians including Jerry Fernandes and suggests that film musicians were responsible for an enormous number of different childhood and adulthood favorites. For many decades, their music was India's only widely available popular music though the faces and names attached to their songs were those of actors, playback singers and music directors.

Keywords:   film-music industry, Mumbai, India, Jerry Fernandes, film musicians, popular music
