The Real Me follows the stories of young songwriters and performers with cancer who found hope, healing and connection through music.
Presented by Teen Cancer America, the national non-profit founded by rock icons Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who, “The Real Me” highlights the moving experiences of cancer patients in TCA’s Play It Back program, which matches them with music professionals to write, perform and record fully produced studio versions of their original songs.
Our Guest this week is Audrey Rene, a singer/songwriter from College Station TX.
Audrey grew up in a musical family, and as a singer herself, has grown up singing in her school choirs throughout her junior high, high school and college years. She auditioned for the state choir in Texas, and got to perform with her varsity women’s ensemble at TMEA. After being diagnosed with cancer, music became even more important to her.
Spending some time speaking with Audrey, I can tell you she has such a great sense of humor and tells it like it is. Cancer was not going to slow her down. She has a driving force and passion for writing and recording music especially now that she's been a part of the Play it Back Program. Her song "Not the End" says it all. Take a listen!

The Piketon Massacre
The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
