Free To Be You And Me Free To Be You And Me

Today on Soundcheck: In this second installment of our series about the groundbreaking children's album Free To Be... You And Me, we look back at the record's gender-neutral messages. Faith Salie joins us to talk about the impact that the album had on her as a child and how she's approached gender as a new parent of a little boy.

Then, indie duo Two Gallants performs songs from its latest release The Bloom And The Blight in the studio.

And, a new study shows that music lessons have an impact on the brain into adulthood. 

Guests:

Nina Kraus and Two Gallants

'Free To Be' Anything You Want To Be (Almost)
