Music Therapy

We all find our outlets in different ways. Some people work out, others drink heavily. I get my weekly dose of therapy by playing some of my favorite music for you for two hours a week.

Tune in for an hour of indie-rock, indie-pop, and associated genres. Then it's emo f. If you're not familiar with either, we'll explore a variety of the styles that fit into those two genres, from quiet and folky to airy and atmospheric to loud and aggressive.

View weekly playlists, discuss the mood, and interact with me at the Music Therapy Facebook page: www.facebook.com/musictherapyWAYO

  • Music Therapy - July 11, 2017: Sorry for Leaving/Happy to Be Back (Part 1 of 2) Aired: Tuesday, July 11, 2017

    It's been two weeks since I meandered into the WAYO studios to play some amazing music for Rochester and beyond on Music Therapy. There was vacation, and then the holiday hit on a Tuesday, and I am wracked with guilt. I feel very sorry for abandoning you, faithful listeners, but this week I'm back! And I'm eager to get back to the rock!

    I'm excited! Summer is finally here, and that means long days and warm nights and vacation! I'm hitting the road this coming weekend for a trip away.

  • Music Therapy - June 13, 2017: Summery (Part 1 of 2) Aired: Tuesday, June 13, 2017

    Summer has finally arrived! After an endless spring of cool weather and rain (oh so much rain!), we're finally slinking shamefully into summer. I love those endless days of sunshine and carefree lazing. So I'm playing music perfect for lazing. Imagine yourself laying on the freshly mowed grass, a glass of lemonade nearby, while you listen to these delightful indie pop songs and watch fluffy white clouds drift lazily by. Enjoy!

  • Music Therapy - June 6, 2017: A-Z (Obscure) (Part 1 of 2) Aired: Tuesday, June 6, 2017

    I realized one week that I play about 13 songs an hour. Multiply that by 2 for the show, and that's 26 songs, coincidentally one for each letter in the alphabet. So here are the A to Zs of indie rock. Doing a more obscure list of bands this time. Not completely obscure, but likely some bands you haven't heard before, with songs in alphabetical order! Just because!
