NPR Music is dedicated to presenting the best of public radio music on the web, via podcast, and - through PRX - special broadcasts. PRX is now the home for the popular 29 minute weekly show "All Songs Considered," hosted by Bob Boilen. Also on PRX, NPR Music presents occasional music series, remembrances and special events, such as a recent concert by Bjork in New York City, produced in collaboration with WNYC, and Discoveries at Disney, a special eclectic series of 10 concerts recorded at the new Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and hosted by Renee Montaigne. These are just a few of the music programs that will begin appearing on PRX as we continue to celebrate live music and act as a guide to the current music scene.
