All Songs Considered

If you want to get updated with the new songs that are “fresh from the oven,” then you should tune in to All Songs Considered.

All Songs Considered by NPR (National Public Radio) features new songs and albums released on the same day the episode is recorded.

Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton, the producers and hosts of the show, invite guests to discuss and give commentary on the particular song or album.

Robin usually does the new songs on the day and Bob seems to focus on interviewing music personalities to discuss music matters. They give the listeners reasons to look forward to the new song or album.

Comparing it with other music podcasts that feature new songs and albums, All Songs Considered is not limited to one genre only and the theme is pretty much the same with a radio show.

They play the full song after discussing it with their guest host. The episodes last for less than an hour, so it’s fairly brief.

Get to know more about the hosts by following them on Twitter: Robin and Bob.
