For the first time in 40 years, NPR’s Morning Edition has changed its tune.

The classic B.J. Leiderman theme has been replaced on Monday with a new jingle, intended to sound younger and more diverse, according to the program’s executive producer Kenya Young.

As might be expected, listeners had some thoughts — not all of them, positive. But that got us thinking about show themes that we love, the themes that are classics and the themes that have now been forgotten.

Whether it’s the Today show, or another NPR theme, we want to hear your stories of beloved anthems.
