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 - March 28, 2017: Groove (Part 2 of 2) Aired: Tuesday, March 28, 2017

    Winter has dragged out far too long. But the weather is improving, and so is my outlook! I'm feeling the change in the seasons. It's making me feel like I'm back in the groove again, doing things I enjoy doing! So, in honor of that mood, I'm playing indie rock songs with a bit of groove to them. Everything from pop to rock to electronic music, all with a bit of sway and soul. Enjoy!

  • Music Therapy - March 21, 2017: Cold (Part 1 of 2) Aired: Tuesday, March 21, 2017

    Mother Nature is just messing with us. After a mild February, she has hit us with wind storms and blizzards in March. Temperatures have been frigid. There is no glimpse of spring in view. And I've had about enough of this. I'm tired of being cold. This week's tunes are pretty cool, though!

  • Music Therapy - March 7, 2017: Sick (Part 1 of 2) Aired: Tuesday, March 7, 2017

    I haven't been feeling very well lately. This late-winter cold has been kicking my butt. Coughing and hacking and other more uncomfortable personal discomfort. So this week, that's my mood. I'm sick. So are these songs!

  • Music Therapy - February 28, 2017: Leftovers 1 (Part 1 of 2) Aired: Tuesday, February 28, 2017

    Feeling a bit under the weather this week, so less talking and more music. There's a lot of songs that just don't fit in to each week's carefully planned playlist. That's not because they're bad or don't fit the mood; there just isn't enough time. So let's let these gems shine after all. We're playling some leftovers that didn't make past shows.

  • Music Therapy - February 21, 2017: Radio Songs (Part 1 of 2) Aired: Tuesday, February 21, 2017

    Making these playlists ahead of time is hard. I run out of ideas sometimes. So I sat there, thinking about what music I wanted to play on the radio, and it got me thinking about songs played on the radio ABOUT the radio? There's a lot of them out there. So this week's show is meta: we're playing songs on the radio about playing songs on the radio. Pretty awesome, huh?

  • Music Therapy - February 14, 2017: Hate/Heartbreak (Part 1 of 2) Aired: Tuesday, February 14, 2017

    America celebrates February 14 each year in honor of the stoning of a saint by buying overpriced candy and dying flowers for each other. It's supposed to show love, I suppose, which lets you off the hook in caring the other 364 days of the year. For those of us unburdoned by such invented emotions, this day is one to scoff in the face of sentimentality and say F- you to the greeting card companies. Celebrate the way it was always intended: with sad songs drenched in hate and heartbreak.
