Music has the power to affect us like nothing else, to connect us, to inspire us and to make us change our minds. 

Each night, OneTrackMinds gives the stage to six guests - a vibrant selection of writers, artists, thinkers and musicians -  each with a story about how music has affected them. 

An engaging cross between Desert Island Discs, The Moth and TED, OneTrackMinds will leave you feeling engaged and inspired, and all the more aware of the transformative power of music.
