You know you are listening to too much public radio when you can recite the funding credits by heart or come up with your own lyrics to the theme songs. But it turns out there really are words to the Morning Edition theme jingle. When BJ Leiderman composed the theme 27 years ago, he wrote a few unforgettable lyrics. It starts out: "Oh, I hate to get up in the morning..."
I'll let you listen to BJ sing it himself (audio).
Warning: The spot was created for public radio stations to use in their fundraising drives starting this week, so if you feel the urge to rush to the phone, you'll know why.
