This program is not only still on the air, fourteen years later, but is now entering syndication. The theme track has been a staple of the show, with a recognizable “hook” that has become the musical signature for their audience.
On Saturday, December 3, at 4pm – an exciting new version of this longtime theme was unveiled.
“Cutting Edge” – the title of the new version – features Mattie DeDoes on alto sax, in a clever rework of this 60-second piece. The “GROOVE” is totally different, the TEXTURE and FEEL are more modern, and this short piece has been redesigned to help take “The Internet Advisor” into its next era !
