All Songs Considered

1 pm Sundays on WILL-AM: Host Bob Boilen spins new music from emerging bands.

All Songs Considered is NPR's guide to discovering new music below the radar. Every week, host Bob Boilen and producer Robin Hilton go through hundreds of new CDs to find sneak previews of music that's worth getting excited about, whether it's the latest Swedish pop band, a hip hop artist going ambient, or a singer-songwriter with a twisted new take on love. Sometimes, artists or critics stop by All Songs Considered with their top picks. It's the perfect show for listeners who love to stay current, but can't always wade through a myriad of sources.

All Songs Considered started as a Web show in 2000 after receiving countless letters from listeners who wanted to know more about the music played between stories on NPR's evening news program, All Things Considered. Now All Songs Considered has become a destination for artists such as Bjork or T. Bone Burnett to spin their favorite tunes, or musicians such as Wilco, St. Vincent, Wild Flag or Bon Iver to webcast their live concerts. It is a show that one week can feature the music of Portugal and the next feature The Black Keys or Andrew Bird.

Changes to WILL-AM schedule

Commodity Week now airs live at 2:30 pm Fridays. NPR's Ask Me Another (puzzles, games and trivia) and All Songs Considered (new music from emerging bands) join the schedule.

The new year brings two new NPR programs to the weekend lineup and moves WILL Agriculture’s Commodity Week to a live broadcast at 2:30 pm Fridays from its former 11:30 am Saturday slot. The changes took effect Friday, Jan. 3.

“Listeners who depend upon timely agricultural information no longer need to wait an entire day for the broadcast,” WILL’s content director David Thiel said. “Not only will Commodity Week be available earlier, it will be conveniently paired with The Closing Market Report, our other signature agricultural series.”

NPR’s Ask Me Another joins the Saturday schedule at 11 am. The new program blends brainteasers and trivia with comedy and music. Hosted by comedian Ophira Eisenberg, storyteller for The Moth, Ask Me Another invites in-studio guests and listeners to stretch their noggins, tickle their funny bones and enjoy witty banter and guitar riffs from house musician Jonathan Coulton.

Each hour, listeners can play along as Eisenberg puts questions to a rotating band of puzzle gurus, audience members and special mystery guests, who then take a turn in the contestant's chair facing trivia games written especially for him or her.

With the close of State of the Re:Union’s fall season, NPR’s All Songs Considered fills the space at 1 pm Sundays. It’s a weekly online multimedia program started 14 years ago by NPR’s All Things Considered director Bob Boilen, and has become known as a source of discovery for new music of many genres. The half-hour program is followed by State Week in Review, which had been in the AM schedule at 11 am Saturdays.

Downton Abbey, the award-winning drama hailed by The Hollywood Reporter as “an absolute pleasure to watch,” will return to Masterpiece on PBS for a fifth season.

“As American audiences ready themselves for the January 5th premiere of Season 4, our devoted Downton fans will rest easy knowing that a fifth season is on the way,” says Masterpiece executive producer Rebecca Eaton.

Earlier this year, more than 24 million viewers watched the third season of the series in the U.S., making it the most-watched drama in PBS history.
Downton Abbey Season 4 will air on Masterpiece Sundays, Jan. 5 through Feb. 23, on PBS.
