Matt Lepay's intro to Jump Around Wisconsin and Frontline Workers

Radio stations all across Wisconsin have played Jump Around at 3pm on Saturdays for several weeks. Matt Lepay, the radio voice of your Wisconsin Badgers kicks it off with a special message for Badgers fans and front line workers all across the country. As we slowly get back to normal, several radio stations will be getting back to normal programming and won't be able to particiapte. I've included Matt's intro here so we can keep the tradition alive until we can do it for real this fall at Camp Randall Stadium. A special thanks to Matt for doing this and #OnWisconsin

Here's an edit version of one of our earlier Jump Arounds which includs the theme from Bonanza, Sweet Caroline, Build Me A Buttercup and of course On Wisconsin. Here's the segment and due to copywrite laws, I scoped down the songs but kept Matt's original message intact)

Want to thank Jake Kocorowski for his article in SI on the origins our our Saturday afternoon get togethers....

There are several things the state of Wisconsin is known for: Good craft brews, cheese curds and celebrating the end of the third quarter during Badgers home football games with an early '90s hip-hop classic.

Since April 4, however, that familiar tune has been released into the airwaves every Saturday at 3 p.m. CT to what has grown to over 100 Wisconsin radio stations.


House of Pain's "Jump Around" announces itself to the listening audiences. For Badgers fans, their first ingrained response is to—as they do between the third and fourth quarters inside Camp Randall Stadium on football Saturdays—actually jump around.
