“Music Heals” is part of a station wide commitment to illuminating the powerful and soothing impact of music on the listener’s mental and physical well-being. The healing power of music is at the heart of the WXPN Musicians On Call program which has brought live music to the bedsides of over 80,000 patients and their families at seven area hospitals since 2004, helping them transcend physical pain and the emotional challenges of illness.
