NHPR Listeners Want To Know: What's That Song You Played Between News Stories?

Jan 1, 2019

Every so often a listener will message NHPR to ask what song Morning Edition Host Rick Ganley just played as part of a newscast or story. It turns out, this is a favorite part of Rick's job.

"Bumper music" is an industry term used to describe short pieces of music played between segments, or as part of a transition within a story or between stories. A listener asked about the music clip in this video earlier this year when it aired on NHPR.
