Moog's Modern Appeal

Pop singer Ke$ha teaches Conan O'Brien how to play a Theremin

Raleigh-based Associated Press reporter Martha Waggoner joins host Frank Stasio to talk about Moog’s modern appeal and the company’s financial success.

Next week, Moog Music will open doors to its new headquarters and studio in Asheville, NC. The electronic musical instruments manufacturer is known for producing Theremin kits, synthesizers and other analog equipment, but digital music era artists are crazy for the Moog sound. Bands like Rush, Coldplay and Weezer and pop singers like Lady Gaga, Ke$ha and Beyoncé have all scooped up sets of Moog gear for their recording sessions and concert performances.
