Music is taming that “savage beast” again.

Marjorie had the occasion to spend a little time in hospital over this past week and she posted this status update on Facebook about something she heard on the TV:

When you’re hepped up on goofballs (or painkillers in my case) and you think you heard Carlos Santana say: “music was given to tame the beast, as they say in the Bible. You know, entertain the beast means to quiet fear and anger. Music is to glorify the light in you” on the respected PBS Newshour, you have good reason to think you’re hallucinating. However, it turns out he actually did.

Here is the transcript on the PBS website, and I’ve attached a transcript.
