Join us on Sunday at 9:40-10:40am on the Woods Stage as Bob & special guests discuss ‘life changing songs’.
Bob Boilen is the creator and host of NPR Music’s “All Songs Considered” and of their “Tiny Desk Concert” series, which features well-known and emerging artists for intimate performances filmed at his desk. He was also the director of NPR’s “All Things Considered” (1989-2007) and chose the music between the news stories. As a composer and performer, Boilen has always been passionate about music. Prior to joining NPR, he was a long-time record store clerk and performed with his band Tiny Desk Unit, who were the first group to perform at the 9:30 Club. Constantly on the lookout for new music, Boilen sees more than 500 live bands each year. He was recently cast as a minor character on “The Simpsons,” playing a version of himself—the host of a radio show in Springfield.
