...the new theme cut being used for the open? The show is apparently now using the piano-lead cut they generally used for the close, instead of the sax-lead they've been using since the beginning.

I figured it was time I registered and answer any questions I'm able to.

Yes, we dropped the "lost in the early 80's" sax-heavy theme and replaced it with what is normally our credits music. The saxophone has been used SO much in public radio themes and we decided that it sounded very dated. We think that just the piano/bass/drums theme classes things up a bit.

If you ever re-record, remember it's a morning show. Some of us need trumpets to wake up...really loud trumpets.

But to be serious, I've wondered if there's a composer credit to the theme?
