Theme Music is a free-form program that explores a different theme each week, looking past the usual suspects of artist, genre, and era toward unique ideas that together create a colorful quilt of musical narratives. Back announcements tie songs to the theme of the episode and provide interesting factual commentary to keep the listener engaged. Past themes include: Women Standing in the Shadows of Motown (lesser-known songs by Motown artists featuring all-women vocals, honoring Black History Month), Euro-vision, Industrial Musicals (a mid-century method for corporations to indoctrinate employees), Birthdays, and Posthumous Releases.
