The title "on air" refers to television, radio, etc., being broadcasted. I intentionally made the tune to sound like a jingle (the end of the song signals the start of the program).
The first theme in Hollywood style and the second in Bossa creates a lively atmosphere. After the part solos, the middle section takes an ennui waltz style.
After the Bari Sax solo, the tune returns to the original style and closes the curtain.
The title "ON AIR" is also an anagram of ARION.
