“Balance” is the key to healthy living, goes an old saying. But can one ever have too much joy? This week on All Ears, host Terrance McKnight toys with pieces that provide a pleasurable, joyful listening experience.

There'’s music for toy piano, a string quartet playing Jimi Hendrix and George Gershwin performing his own Rhapsody In Blue. It'’s all joy in this edition of All Ears.
