'All Things Considered' Hosts On The Program's Library of Congress Induction

Today, the first broadcast of All Things Considered - which aired on May 3, 1971 - is being inducted into the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress for its place in US audio heritage.

The NPR broadcast has been named to the archive with 24 other culturally, historically and aesthetically significant recordings, including Judy Garland's "Over The Rainbow," David Bowie's "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars"; and Sister Sledge's "We Are Family," among others.

Some of the current hosts of NPR's flagship news program reflect on what the honor means.
