I’m a fan of one of NPR Music’s non-radio offerings–The Tiny Desk Concert. On an irregular basis the crew brings performers into a casual setting at NPR headquarters and has them play a few songs. The concerts are available as audio-only, but you can also get them as a video podcast–well-produced in both the audio and the video, and usually bringing a fresh sound to an ear that has heard everything over the years from NPR.
Check out the most recent Tiny Desk Concert embedded below. The performer is Basia Bulat, a singer-songwriter from Ontario, who performs on guitar and pianoette (a kind of cross between autoharp and hammered dulcimer).
