Madison’s Don Voegeli’s Electronic Switch Influenced The Sound Of Public Radio

As a public radio listener, you’re probably familiar with the theme song for NPR’s “All Things Considered.” It’s had a few variations over the decades.

But did you know it was originally composed in Madison in 1971?

It was written by Don Voegeli, a University of Wisconsin-Madison professor and the longtime music director at WHA (now known as Wisconsin Public Radio).
