Spotlight on Bob Boilen & Robin Hilton

Bob Boilen, host of All Songs Considered, is also the former director of All Things Considered for 18 years.

Before coming to NPR, Boilen found many ways to share his passion for music. From 1982 to 1986 he worked for Baltimore’s Impossible Theater, where he held many posts, including composer, technician, and recording engineer. In 1983 with the Impossible Theater production Whiz Bang, a History of Sound, Boilen became one of the first composers to use audio sampling. In 1985, the Washington City Paper voted Boilen ‘Performance Artist of the Year.’ An electronic musician, he received a grant from the Washington D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities to work on electronic music and performance.

Boilen’s first book, Your Song Changed My Life, published in April 2016 by HarperCollins.
