“Music With Heart” Spreads Joy in Troubling Times, and John Drew Says Goodbye to ABCD

From prisons to homeless shelters, dozens of Boston-area amateur musicians are spreading joy through song to those struggling to get by, or searching for a second chance. Tim McHale, co-founder of “Music With Heart”, joins Nichole on the show this week to talk about the group’s three-decade history performing in and around the Hub, and how you can take part. For more than 50 years, John Drew has been a driving force behind ABCD – Action for Boston Community Development. Having been there since the early days, John, who now serves as President and CEO, has helped provide critical resources to hundreds of thousands of low-income families throughout the years. Now, John has decided it’s time to step away. On this episode, he shares his half-century-long journey with Nichole, and his thoughts on the future.
