On February 13th, KEXP hosts Music Heals: Beyond Cancer, a day of programming dedicated to the power of music and the part it plays for those facing cancer. John Richards, Cheryl Waters, and Kevin Cole read stories shared with us by members of our community and featured songs that helped them through the healing process either emotionally or physically. 

Listeners are encouraged to share their experiences with cancer and how music played a part in their lives. Those interested in participating can email, then tune in to hear those stories and songs shared on air.

"Music has incredible power,” says KEXP Morning Show host John Richards. “I hear from listeners every day about a song or a lyric that helped them heal, process, grieve or just find the strength to go on.”

Through the Music Heals series, KEXP uses curated music, interviews, listener stories and live events to help people in our community understand they are not alone. Music can provide comfort, validation, encouragement, consolation, perspective, catharsis, and community, and the Music Heals series explores how music can also heal our bodies and lift our spirits. Use the navigation below to explore the different topics.
