Like Vermont Public Radio’s new weekdaily Vermont Edition, the program’s theme has a bit of the unexpected, the network says. In the MP3 of the theme, you’ll hear the usual insistent throb of newscast themes going back to the early BJ-Leiderzoic Era, but this one sounds more like James Brown’s pulse instead of James Lehrer’s. Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, based in Vermont, did the theme. That’s Grace on organ. VPR launches the noon newscast Aug. 13 with former NPR journalist Jane Lindholm as host.
