November 20, 2012 We recently asked listeners to tell us their picks for bands that should be bigger than they are, and we were surprised by how many we didn't know. On this edition of All Songs Considered we share some of the discoveries we made, along with some of our own candidates for bands that should be bigger.

May 23, 2008 All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen shares a remembrance of a band he says changed his life: Urban Verbs. Boilen first heard the group while living in Washington, D.C. in the late '70s, where the band got its start, and helped create a thriving music scene in the nation's capital. Urban Verbs are reuniting for a full concert at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., a club they first played more than a quarter century ago.
