That is the title of my new episode of Music for a While. It gives you the story. At the beginning of the show, I ask, “Need I say that music is extra-important in these strange and trying times?” And the answer, of course, is no. It goes without saying.
In this episode, I play music that has meant a lot to a lot of people, over the years. Lotsa Bach. Plus some Chopin, Haydn, and others. There is music that comforts, consoles, and reassures. Music that is balm-like. Then there is music that’s shot through with joy — and imparts joy in the bargain.
I often say, “What would we do without music? Fortunately, we never have to find out.”
Anyway, enough talk, more rock. (Old Detroit radio slogan.) I hope this podcast — again, here — proves a service.
