What 'All Songs Considered' Sounded Like 20 Years Ago

Hosts Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton look back at the first year of the program, which turns 20 years old this month.On January 3, 2000, All Songs Considered became National Public Radio's first online-only program. The show's origins came from the interest of those little music snippets played between news stories. As director of All Things Considered at the time, choosing those music "buttons" was Bob Boilen's job. The amount of mail that came his way inquiring about those buttons was astonishing. It just seemed our audience was starved for new and exciting music, and so began our journey.On this episode of All Songs Considered, we listen back to some of the early music we played on the program. We'll paint a picture of what it was like to connect to the internet in the year 2000, how we choked people's bandwidth by producing a multimedia show filled with not only music but photographs and text. We'll also look at what it meant for NPR to take a chance on doing "a music show for your...

All Songs Considered: The Year In Music 2019

ELizzo, Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X dominated the headlines this year, but 2019 was much more than that. We look back at the music we'll remember most and the marks it left on our cultural landscape. As we listened back to the past year in music we heard a lot of the cultural and political angst you'd expect in a turbulent (and relentless) news cycle. But the albums that seemed to resonate the most in 2019 were more personal and inward looking, overflowing with love and defiant optimism. Sharon Van Etten reflected on motherhood, Amanda Palmer shared stories of survival and David Bazan, back as Pedro the Lion for the first time in 15 years, returned to his childhood, making the personal universal. Brittany Howard wrote songs of healing on an album she named after and dedicated to her sister who died at the age of 13, while the members of the Rwandan group The Good Ones sang songs of forgiveness in the wake of unspeakable genocide. For other artists, 2019 was a year of renewal. Angel O...

Interview: Sheryl Crow

ESheryl Crow had a lot to say in this Tiny Desk Fest interview with NPR pop critic Ann Powers.Every day, Sheryl Crow said at NPR's Tiny Desk Fest, she thinks about compassion. "In 2005, I got to hear the Dalai Lama speak — I was his opening act — and it was cool. It was the year he was talking about compassion, and he said if every person in every business in every walk of life made every decision based on compassion, the world would look like a completely different place." Crow and her band then led a rousing singalong of her 2008 song "Out of Our Heads," whose chorus sends an urgent plea to the online news junkies and social media warriors of today: "If we could only get out of our heads, out of our heads, and into our hearts...."
