As part of Wisconsin Public Radio’s 100th anniversary celebration we are pleased to provide digitally remastered copies of music created and/or performed by Don Voegeli, composer of the All Things Considered theme. Don, long the Music Director at WHA (the first WPR station), developed a series of recordings for public media use as production music. The music is still cleared for use by and for public, non-commercial radio, TV and media, and we think you’ll find some real gems here that can be used on the air or in a podcast. The twenty-six original LPs from Don’s Electrosonic Studio were funded by CPB and NPR.
