Join Bandwidth For NPR Music’s ‘Songs We Love’ Live

By Ally Schweitzer


NPR Music is putting its “Songs We Love” series in front of a live audience. On May 21 at NPR’s Studio 1,  All Things Considered host Audie Cornish is leading a fairly loose conversation about songs that make us feel some kinda way — nostalgic, joyful, overwhelmed, inspired, infatuated. Cornish will be joined by Alt.Latino’s Felix Contreras, “Recommended Dose” scribe Sami Yenigun, Stephen “The Good Listener” Thompson and myself, and we’ll be fully geeking out on music till the wheels fall off.

But the most important guest is you, of course. Tickets are available right now on NPR’s website, and they’re free. So snatch yours up, and start thinking about what song you want to talk about next week. There’s even a hashtag: #NPRsongswelove.

This event marks the end of NPR Generation Listen‘s month-long listening tour, which hosted conversations about public radio around the country.

The big night kicks off at 7 p.m. May 21, with doors opening at 6:15 p.m. (More specs are on NPR’s website.) After the panel, we’re planning to hang out, sip beverages and listen to even more music, so clearly, this is a prime opportunity for you to immerse yourself in public-radio nerdery. You can’t miss it.
