Bob Boilen talks about what’s hidden in ourselves from the famous Tiny Desk!
About the speaker
In 1988, a determined Bob Boilen started showing up on NPR’s doorstep every day, looking for a way to contribute his skills in music and broadcasting to the network. His persistence paid off, and within a few weeks he was hired, on a temporary basis, to work for All Things Considered. Less than a year later, Boilen was directing the show and continued to do so for the next 18 years.
in 2000 Bob Boilen started the show All Songs Considered a weekly podcast and blog featuring new music discoveries. The show launched in 2000, with Boilen as its host. This CreativeMornings/DC talk will be at Bob’s desk – the actual place where NPR Music records the Tiny Desk Concert series!
