This Song: Listener Episode

The This Song listener episode is finally here! Emily La Framboise describes how Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car” got her interested in social justice. Lee Miller explains how “Darling Be Home Soon” by the Lovin’ Spoonful helped him discover his love of songwriting.   We revisit Joanna Castillo as she explores the heartbreaking beauty of Kathy Mattea’s “Where’ve You Been.”  And Charlie Press tells us about the impact that the Rolling Stones  “Sympathy for the Devil” had on him as a young child.


Thanks to everyone who shared  their transformative musical experiences with us! We’re going to make another listener episode!  If that sounds like something you want to be a part of all you have to do is record your story about a song that changed your life to a voice memo and email it to us at
