Our Theme Today Is Theme Songs

So, when Prince died (which was two years ago), we announced that we were finally going to retire our theme song (which is a Prince song). And then we promptly did... nothing at all.

Over the last few weeks, though -- and in typical Colin McEnroe Shovian fashion -- we've decided that this non-problem is a big problem. And so, in order to try and hopefully finally fix this non-problem big problem, we're doing a whole show about theme songs -- ours and other people's.

GUESTS:

  • Kate Callahan - Connecticut's 16th State Troubadour; her new album is Triumph
  • Jim Chapdelaine - Composed the theme song for WNPR's The Second First Season; it says here that he's also won, like, Emmys and things for other stuff he's done
  • Stephen Metcalf - Slate's critic at large and co-host of The Slate Culture Gabfest
  • Steve Metcalf - Director of the University of Hartford's Presidents' College

Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter.

Colin McEnroe and Gene Amatruda contributed to this show.
