Composer of NPR Theme Dies

Patricia Sullivan

Don Voegeli, a University of Wisconsin music professor who composed the "All Things Considered" theme song for National Public Radio, died Saturday in Madison, Wis. He was 89.

This is more of an audio story than a text one, so I'll just link you to the NPR web page that lists the theme and variations over the years; it's fun to dial back and see which ones you remember, if you're an NPR listener.

In addition, here's the NPR story that appeared in 2002 in which Mr. Voegeli talked about how the theme song came about.
