Citizen Cope performs "Healing Hands" February 26, 2010 River Music Hall
This particular story is about that time that everything was awful, when you thought the sun would never rise and the clouds would never clear, and then one person somehow cast a silver lining over it all. What it’s about, Cope said in an interview with The River’s Rita Cary, is people’s ability to help other people out. When someone thinks their heart has stopped, when someone swears they’ve given up, it’s up to friends and family to be their healing hands.
The song comes out raspy and raw – classic Cane, with even more of an edge because it’s just him and the acoustic guitar. But the song’s optimism trumps the texture of the vocals, elevating “Healing Hands” to something that is, well, healing: from sandpaper, a silver lining and a soothing balm.

Music and people —both are best when they aren’t confined by labels. And a radio station that connects the two should be independent, intelligent, and diverse, like the minds of its listeners. At 92.5 the River, we celebrate that diversity every day, playing music that weaves a rock-and-roll tapestry across time and genres. Our playlist includes elements of alternative, acoustic, blues, folk, reggae, and other forms of music. You’ll hear a blend of current releases from today’s artists, your favorites from the 80s and 90s, and a few deep album cuts from the 60s and 70s. You’ll also hear artists and songs that have never been played on the radio before, because we believe that discovering new music is one of life’s simple joys, and we love to share that joy with our listeners.
If your relationship with music runs deep, and you enjoy a playlist that’s just as deep, tune in to 92.5 the River —Boston’s Independent Radio!
