New Mix: Sharon Van Etten, SOAK, Miya Folick & More
This week's episode of All Songs Considered sees NPR Music's Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton reunited to pop some popcorn and reflect on the years they've spent on and off the show. A driving single with a pulsing beat stretches Sharon Van Etten's voice to new heights, while J.S. Ondara's debut takes a fresh look at the American dream and the classic rock that inspired his move from Nairobi to Minnesota. Also on the show: Miya Folick delivers a heart-wrenching apology, Berlin-based composer Tom Adams spins our darkest fears into atmospheric music, and SOAK builds a pop song around a blissful confession. But first, we take a moment to remember Robin's dad, who passed away last week, with a few words from John Denver. 1. John Denver: "Poems, Prayers And Promises," 2. Tom Adams: "In Darkness," 3. Sharon Van Etten: "Come Back Kid," 4. SOAK: "Everybody Loves You," 5. Miya Folick: "Thingamig," 6. Jason Lytle: "Color of Dirt," 7. J.S. Ondara: "American Dream"

PMS 2.0 035 - Hot Topic Thursday
On todayâ€™s show, Pat and the guys cover a vast range of topics. They discuss whether or not they think Urban Meyer will coach again and how the cultâ€™s of college football teams impact a coach's legacy, and get into the feedback Pat was given after calling his first NFL game and if he thinks heâ€™ll get another chance to do so and in what capacity and where. The guys also discuss the first few days of the weight loss challenge and how the participants are battling through it, dive into a little movie talk ranging from Kevin Costnerâ€™s athletic skills, to Avatar, to Goodfellas, which results in a conversation about the current state of the mafia, and if they still operate. They also cover all the drama going on in Pittsburgh with the Steelers and talk about a couple of the potential landing spots for AB if he is to get traded, chat about the NFL playoff games this weekend and who theyâ€™re leaning towards, get into a little bit of a fast food discussion, and question where the phrase "bless you," came from and if it should be extended to other things as well. Itâ€™s a hilarious one. Come and laugh with us, cheers.
