9:30 Coffee Break: Helping Songs

Coffee Break
What songs do you want to hear for today's coffee break? (MPR Graphic / Tracy Kompelien)

We just wrapped up trivia with Sean McPherson, and today's theme was songs about helping.

It turns out there are a lot of songs that pursue a theme of helping, whether it's the songwriter asking for help, using the word "help" in a conversational way or conveying a larger message of helping out the community or even the world.

As luck would have it, help is also a good theme as we're continuing our spring member drive. You can help support the music you love by becoming a member at thecurrent.org or by calling 1-800-227-2811.
