On Thursday, March 28th, KEXP presents Music Heals: Beyond Cancer, a day of programming dedicated to the power of music and the part it plays for those facing cancer. From 6AM to 6PM, John Richards, Cheryl Waters, and Kevin Cole will tell the stories shared with them by listeners and community members, and feature songs that helped them through the healing process.

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 on Thursday, March 28th to hear those stories and songs shared on air.

Later that night, join KEXP and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance Proton Therapy Center in the Gathering Space from 6 to 8 PM for an evening of stories, songs, and music by BowieVision, a David Bowie cover band. All ages are welcome at this uplifting and inspiring event. FREE.

"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.
