The English Beat is among the bands playing tonight at the Cat's Cradle in Carrboro for Be Loud! '16, an event that supports programs for young and adult cancer patients and their families. 

The Be Loud! Sophie Foundation  honors the memory of Sophie Steiner, a Chapel Hill teenager who died of cancer in 2013.  Hobex is reuniting for Friday's event, along with Chris Stamey and the local super-group Preesh!

Morning Edition host Eric Hodge spoke with Niklaus Steiner, co-founder of the Be Loud! Sophie Foundation and Sophie Steiner's father; Rob Ladd, member of the band Preesh!; and Dave Wakeling, member of the band The English Beat.

Eric Hodge hosts WUNC’s broadcast of Morning Edition, and files reports for the North Carolina news segments of the broadcast. He started at the station in 2004 doing fill-in work on weekends and All Things Considered.
