"Our theme music was composed by BJ Leiderman" is a common refrain heard by many public radio listeners across the country. Who is BJ Leiderman? He's the award-winning composer of some of the best-known theme music on National Public Radio. For almost four decades, Leiderman's melodies have graced programs including Morning Edition, Weekend Edition, Marketplace, Science Friday, Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me!, and the Stump The Chumps theme from Car Talk. And now, BJ is finally breaking his silence with his long awaited debut CD - BJ. Produced by Eric Sarafin a.k.a. Mixerman and backed by the incomparable Athens, Georgia-based Randall Bramblett Band, the album also features Béla Fleck on three of the tracks.
