We hear music from Somerville cellist Mike Block. He's the founder and director of the nonpartisan group "Play For The Vote," which says it'll have some 600 performers offering live music to voters, in 48 states.

Radio Boston's Jamie Bologna met up with Block, who is also a member of Yo-Yo Ma's "Silkroad," as Block played outside a polling place in Somerville.

This segment aired on November 3, 2020.
