Danny Robbins
Danny Robins Music Therapy is a new Radio 4 show hosted by comedian Danny Robins that aims to make you feel happier through the power of music.
Perhaps you didn't know, but it's scientifically proven that music can make you more cheerful. It can make you feel better, live longer and smell nicer. 

Danny Robins Music Therapy puts the amazing power of music to work - generally improving the world and solving problems sent in by you, the Radio 4 listeners. 

Danny is the ultimate musical agony aunt and his mission takes him all across the country. Each week Danny is joined by regular assistant Isy Suttie (Dobby from Peep Show) and some exciting musical guests. Together they create customised musical solutions to listeners' dilemmas. 

Episode 1
With special guests beatboxer Beardyman and the Finchley Children’s Music Group choir. Problems include giving traffic wardens a boost and working as an in-store DJ at a fishmongers.

Episode 2
Danny and Isy are joined by Status Quo tribute band Statin' Quo to perform a new town anthem for Middlesbrough.

Episode 3
'How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria' winner Connie Fisher joins the team to help the worst five-a-side-football team in the country (played 82, won 2).

Episode 4
Rapper Doc Brown is on hand to help dish out the musical remedies and Danny shows why the bagpipes should be loved and not reviled.

Danny Robins Music Therapy – it's like Top of the Pops meets Trisha.

Have you got a problem that you'd like Danny to solve through the power of music? Perhaps you're sick of your job, unlucky in love, trying to quit smoking or maybe you have an irrational fear of bananas. Whatever your dilemma, no matter how big, small or silly Danny Robins Music Therapy wants to hear from you, and a selection of these could feature in the next series.

To send us your problem, simply fill in this form, or email (remember to include an active telephone number so we can call you back). Or you can call the BBC Radio 4 helpline on 03700 100 400
