About

THE SONGS THAT SAVED YOUR LIFE is a show about music. And healing. The lyrics to “Rubber Ring” by The Smiths go, “don’t forget the songs that made you cry, and the songs that saved your life.”  It’s a universal phenomenon—accessible to anyone, experienced by almost everyone. For as long as it’s been made, music has healed. For many of us, before there was a therapist’s office, there’s been that song. Who better to explore the very real power of that song than a music-loving psychotherapist and an influential musician/artist. Our resident host and therapist, Drew Newkirk, will sit down with someone different each show and talk with him or her about that song—the one that saved their life.
